I think this should count. It is the full intention to do it... and
shows she has the power to do such a spell. Kinda a cool idea.|

Confirmed! R.J. was about to become a woman from Willow's spell but
at the last possible second, as she was about to utter the final
word of the spell, Xander tackled her and stopped her from
completing it. It's made clear that the result would have been a
gender change. But no change actually happened.|
A finely 'crafted' episodse well worth watching despite the
Since the spell was 99% spoken and the intent clear, I vote to keep
it on the list with the note that the the editor made!

I personally thought one of the rules of the listings was that
someone was to actually change. There are thousands of television
shows, movies, books, comics, etc. where characters are almost
transformed. If you let this one stay, then you must open it up to
ALL the others.|

What about a different Section then, like possible transformations?|

Great episode, very entertaining -- especially for long-time fans
of the show who know the characters well.|
A high school boy possesses some sort of love spell, causing women
to swoon and even fight for his affections. He is unaware of this
power, however, and simply believes himself to be a popular high
school quarterback that girls find attractive.
Buffy's sister, Dawn, was the first of the group to fall for his
charms, and not long thereafter Buffy became smitten as well,
followed by Anya and Willow. Now the lot of them are arguing over
who gets to be with R.J. Note that this is a particularly strong
love spell. Willow, a very powerful witch, was unable to break it's
hold over Dawn and now Willow herself is affected by the spell --
even though she's a lesbian.
The following is a transcript that I created of the scene that
takes place just after R.J. leaves Buffy's house, leaving Anya and
Willow entranced by his spell:
(Buffy and willow walk downstairs together to find Anya and Willow
arguing over which of them R.J. loves.)
DAWN: What's going on?
ANYA: Willow thinks she's in love with my boyfriend, R.J.
DAWN: What? No! You two can't do this. (Dawn is still desperately
in love with R.J. herself.)
BUFFY: Willow, you're a gay woman -� and he isn't.
WILLOW: This isn't about his physical presence. It's about his
ANYA: His physical presence has a penis!
WILLOW: I can work around it!
DAWN: This isn't fair! How can you all be doing this to me?
BUFFY: OK, wait. Everyone wait. Just, just calm down, OK? I -- I
think I know what this is. Clearly, you've both been affected by
the same love spell that got Dawn. (Buffy still doesn't realize
that she is affected by the spell herself.)
DAWN: Uh! This isn't a spell. He owns my heart.
BUFFY: Dawn, be quiet. We're trying to work this out. We don't need
WILLOW: There's a simple answer to this. Just think about who loves
him the most. Clearly I do, since I'm willing to look past the
whole "orientation thing".
ANYA: Well, you're gonna have to do better than that �- I'd kill
WILLOW: You'd kill for a chocolate bar.
BUFFY: Yes... kill for him. I'm the slayer. Slayer means kill.
(Buffy remembers that R.J. has been having trouble with the high
school principal. She smiles.) Oh, I'll kill the principal.
ANYA: That is hard to top.
WILLOW: Yeah, well I have skills. I can prove my love with magic.
ANYA: Yeah, right. What're you gonna do -� use magic to make him
into a girl?
(Willow's face brightens into a big smile as she realizes that she
can do just that.)
ANYA: (Realizing that she just gave Willow a great idea) Damn.
(Everyone heads off on their own to prove their love to R.J.)
ANYA: (As she heads out the front door) Wait, I know what he'll
BUFFY: (To Dawn) Sorry, Dawnie. You're never gonna get him.
DAWN: No. Never.
(Willow is upstairs lighting candles in preparation for a spell to
change R.J. into a girl. Each of the others is off doing their own
thing, with Buffy heading to the high school with a bazooka to kill
the principal, Anya to rob a bank, and Dawn to a railroad track.)
(Willow begins casting her spell, and crystals from a bowl at the
center of the lighted candles begin to fly into the air, streaming
in circles around Willow.)
WILLOW: Oh, Hecate, I call on you. I humbly ask your will be done.
Hear my request, a simple change, create a daughter from a s�
(Xander suddenly appears, putting his hand over Willow's mouth,
interrupting the spell and causing the crystals that were in the
air to fall to the floor.)
WILLOW: Uh, oh, man! Now I've gotta start all over. Hecate hates
XANDER: What the hell are you doing?
WILLOW: Proving I love R.J. the most!
XANDER: Will, honey... R.J.'s a guy.
WILLOW: I did notice that, yeah. 's why I'm doing my spell, 'cause,
you know, he doesn't have to be. Now, hand me back my crystals. I
don't have much time.
XANDER: Much time before what?
WILLOW: Before Buffy and Anya and Dawn have a chance to prove that
they love R.J. the most.
XANDER: And how are they gonna do that, exactly?
WILLOW: Well, Buffy's gonna kill Principal Wood, Any� (Xander cut's
XANDER: Fine, OK, let's start there.

I was kinda hoping to see it happen, because I also wondered if
just letting her do it might have canceled out the love spell the
jacket had, as it seems meant for a guy, and if R.J. became a girl,
the jacket wouldn't work anymore and those ensnared by its power
would have been freed (whether or not it would go the opposite and
just turn R.J. to a GUY magnet is beyond me, tho).|
