TOYS R US. BtVS Intertext/Allusion.

After the destruction of the Hellmouth and Sunnydale at the end of "Chosen," the Scooby Gang assesses the aftermath:


WILLOW: We changed the world. I can feel them, Buffy. All over. Slayers are awakening everywhere.

DAWN: We’ll have to find them.

WILLOW: We will.

GILES: Yes, because the mall was actually in Sunnydale so there’s no hope of going there tomorrow.

DAWN: We destroyed the mall? I fought on the wrong side.

XANDER: All those shops, gone. The Gap, Starbucks, Toy R Us… who will remember all those landmarks unless we tell the world of them?
