JAWS 3D. BtVS Intertext/Allusion.

WILLOW: So, I guess you're stuck with me then, huh? Let's order some cherry-flavored off-brand gelatin, and then I think we'll be up for a rousing game of—

XANDER: I might need a parrot.


XANDER: Well, to go with the eye patch, to really complete the look. I think I still have that costume from Halloween.

WILLOW: Yeah, and don't underestimate the impact of a peg leg. Maybe the hospital can hook you up with a nice one. Maybe they have a 2-body-parts for the price of one kind of deal.

XANDER: Oh, you know what the best part is? No one will ever make me watch jaws 3-D again.

WILLOW: Yeah, and, (tries to smile) you'll never have to... (tries not to cry)

XANDER: (pained) Oh, Willow... please don't.

Jaws 3D (1983) was an awful second sequel, featuring completely unsuccessful three dimensional special effects, starring Dennis Quaid, to Steven Spielberg's 1973 classic.
