"Dawn says we owe her big time for making her drop everything to find out that a demon gardener is about to wreak havoc in London." Andrew passed the report to Xander.

"She's kidding, right?"

Andrew snorted. "About us owing her? Dawn never forgets a favour. You should know that."

"No." Xander shook his head. "A gardener?"

"Well, there was mention of topiary and selective pruning."

"But no direct mention of plants."

"Great. Something's about to go all Sweeney Todd on the populace?"

Xander blinked in surprise and picked up the phone to see if Dawn could translate Andrew's outburst.

Oh I love it! It's perfect Andrew. I love Andrew. Did you know that? And this is wonderful Andrew!

"Great. Something's about to go all Sweeney Todd on the populace?"

LOL!

Andrew has gone a wee bit native in this !verse. Xander is still baffled by this.

I adore Andrew too.

Oh, Xander, you poor ignorant boy. :-) And the idea of a demonic gardener going around 'pruning' London is somehow vastly amusing.

It was selective pruning, so you never know if he's planning on pruning small children of an over abundance of Tory ministers. Prophecies should be way more exacting in the details.

I'll bet there's a lot of translating going on with that group ...

Andrew should be able to speak Xander's geek fluently, but I expect Xander would have a tougher time acclimatising to the local patois than Andrew has.

Which does beg the question of how Xander deals with teenaged girls from around the world, who each have their only language and slang. I fear his head would explode.

For all his experiences in Sunnydale, Xander will always be a simple small town boy ... I don't mean that in an insulting way. I just can't imagine him even attempting to adjust to a cosmopolitan lifestyle. Still, girls are girls, and he does have that straightforward charm ...
