Oh, I remember one thing I was going to say about “Lies My Parents Told Me”. The “funny” in this serious episode was the scene in which Giles returns to the rebuilt high school and discusses Spike’s condition with Buffy in front of Wood. Wood had not a clue what they're talking about and obviously had a hard time following the conversation, and whereas that was funny, it emphasized his actions later in the episode, namely, that he doesn't have a clue what was going on in that instance, either.
I respect the way Wood handled the situation, but he wasn’t acting from an informed position. Ultimately, Buffy chose her calling over him the same was his mother had 25 years earlier. And good for Spike for breaking his conditioning on his own. There, I said it (although his mother is a classic example of how a vampire is not the person whose body it inhabits). When it comes right down to it, both Spike and Wood are mama’s boys.

Here's the exact exchange:
I don't want there to be tentacles.
I'm not good with squishy.
I don't care if it's Godzilla, I
wanna get in this thing.
Godzilla's mostly Tokyo based, so
he's probably a no-show.
Besides, Matthew Broderick can kill
Godzilla, how tough is he?
(to Dawn, also upset)
Matthew Broderick never killed
Godzilla. He killed a big dumb
lizard that was NOT the real Godzilla.
Right right, the big slow guy in the
suit was cooler.
I can't hear this...
She's young, bro'. She doesn't
