BRIAN BOITANO. BtVS Intertext/Allusion.
In "Helpless" (30xx), we hear Buffy try to convince Giles of the value of the Ice Capades:
"You know, itís not just cartoon characters. They do pieces from operas and ballets. Brian Boitano doing Carmen is a life changer. Oh, he doesnít actually play Carmen, but a lot of sophisticated people go."
Brian Boitano was an American skater who won the Gold Medal in men's skating in the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary.
