"Worst night ever. Jeez." Willy waved his arms at the sight of more demons turn straight out of his bar, and stomped across to his only customer. "You need to go home, Watcher. You're bad for business."

Giles waved his empty shot glass. "I'm doing my best."

"Yeah, I can retire soon." Willy refilled it. "Last one and then I'm calling the Slayer."

"She wouldn't come. Not after what I did. I've taught her all she needs to know, you see."

"Funny. My clientele think otherwise. They know who you are and what you mean to her."

"But she doesn't."

More Trouble than it's worth.

The Watcher would not be placated. His soul was screaming, and he knew the voice of prophesy when he heard it. “Buffy,” he insisted fervently, “you cannot go out there. It's not safe.”

The Slayer tried to laugh it off, but his worry had her worried. Buffy shook herself a little, worried sure, but... “Giles what am I supposed to tell Mom? I didn't come home because my Watcher had a dream?”
