Pop Culture References
- Merrick tells Buffy that the Emperor Caligula (31 August AD 12 – 24 January AD 41) and Jack the Ripper (1888) were vampires (the same, in fact). While it's not explained in canon if Caligula and Jack the Ripper were the same vampire, it was revealed that Jack the Ripper was indeed a vampire in the canon Tales of the Vampires story Jack.
- Gary Murray, Buffy's School Guidance Counselor, told Buffy that he took "a little acid once, in the sixties. Well, late seventies, really. It was a Doobie Brothers concert..." referring to The Doobie Brothers, an American rock band.
