Great Buffy Rewatch: Lorna Jowett

This seriously made me laugh out loud (and I also had to look up the word "stotious").

Lorna Jowett

One thing I was always kind of glad about was that they never tried to do a Scot in Buffy. So when I lacked inspiration for the final Buffy Rewatch I thought of this…

If Giles were Scottish.
BUFFY: You don’t think it’s a good idea?
FAITH: It’s pretty radical, B.
GILES: Better no’ mess wi’ us, by the way - it’s pure dead brilliant!

If Xander were Scottish.
XANDER: Pairty n ma ee-socket n youse ur a’ invitit.

If Buffy were Scottish.
DAWN: Yeah, Buffy. What are we going to do now?
Buffy looks off into the future, a smile spreading across her face.
BUFFY: Get stotious.

Here’s tae us, Buffy fans, wha’s like us? Damn few, an’ they’re a’ deid!

Lorna, thanks for making me laugh instead of cry! :)

I notice you didn't make a video. Good choice! It's better this way.

And I won't spoil anyone with the definition of "stotious". (I bet you're great fun at parties!) Thanks for the best laugh of the day!

Thank you!!

I posted a link to this on Facebook for my Scots friends. :)

Yes, of course they're Buffy fans.

Ha! HA! HAHAHAHAHA!!! I simply LOVED this - and I learned a new word! Really - does it get better than that?

If the so-called Buffy "reboot" made all the characters Scots, I'd support it 100% ;-) Love this, Lorna!

Nikki: I also had to look up the word "stotious"

Me too. And I had to go to Urban Dictionary, since the dictionary app on my laptop (which even searches Wikipedia) came up empty — pretty ironic, considering that I have a MacBook.

True story: Mark Waid once egged me on to tell Grant Morrison at a San Diego Comic-Con panel that nobody could understand him, so if he could please stop goofing around with the weird glottal sounds and rolling 'r' and the marbles in his mouth we'd all be thankful.
