I can't believe it never occurred to me before now to consider how John Ritter's talent for physicality in his acting played so nicely into this role. Also, it's still sad that John Ritter's dead. I wonder if a guest spot on Buffy was considered a step down for him in 1997? I'm not sure what else he was doing at the time. My pop culture genius is eluding me. Either way, though, I'm not complaining, because this is a great one-off - even without John Ritter, it would still be good - the script is well-written, the pacing is good, and the payoff was, I think, legitimately surprising. "Beg to differ, little lady."
