Buffy: Um, you mean yesterday in the cafeteria when we found him...
Mr. Flutie: Don't say dead! Or decapitated, or decomposing, I'd stay away from D-words altogether. But you witnessed the event, so this way, please.
Buffy: (stops him short) Well, no, I'm gonna be late for biology...
Mr. Flutie: Extremely late! You have to see a counselor. Everyone who saw the body has to see a crisis counselor.
Buffy: But I really don't need...
Mr. Flutie: We all need help with our feelings. Otherwise we bottle them up, and before you know it, powerful laxatives are involved. I really believe if we all reach out to one another we can beat this thing. I'm always here if you need a hug, but not a real hug! Because there's no touching, this school is sensitive to wrong touching.
Buffy: But, I really, really don't...
Mr. Flutie: No, you have to talk to a counselor and start the healing. You have to heal.
