Body Count:

  • Rodney Munson, drained of his lifeforce by the Inca Mummy at the "Incan Burial Chamber" in the Sunnydale Museum
  • The real Ampata Gutierrez, also drained of his lifeforce by the Mummy at the Sunnydale bus station
  • The Peruvian "bodyguard," also drained of his lifeforce by the Mummy in a bathroom of Sunnydale High
  • The Inca Mummy, shattered to pieces after being thrown by Buffy Summers

Goof--As Willow and Xander do a walk-and-talk across the front lawn of Sunnydale High, two crew members with lighting gear come into view in the background past Xander's left shoulder.


  • Explaining his costume for the cultural exchange party, Xander says: "I'm from the country of Leone. It's in Italy pretending to be Montana". But all of Sergio Leone's western movies were filmed in Spain (mostly in Almeria region), pretending to be New Mexico (Il buono, il brutto, il cattivo (1966)), Arizona (C'era una volta il West (1968)), California, or Texas.


Trivia: Both Nicholas Brendon and Ara Celi had to eat up to ten twinkies each for each take of the scene in which they are eating lunch.


  • Gil Birmingham, who portrays the Peruvian Man, would be known for his portrayal of Billy Black in the Twilight film series, which also deals about the romance between a girl and a bloodthirsty creature.
