When Willow performed the spell to awaken all the young Slayers in the world, it outed some people who really would have preferred to keep their status as Potentials under wraps—for various reasons.
“I'm gonna wipe the floor wid ya!” Screamed the hugely fat bearded man as he set upon his much smaller victim.
“Oh, if only I could gets to me spinach!” muttered the unlucky looking target.
Suddenly, there was a strange wavering in the air and the smaller of the two combatants felt a burst of strength surge through his limbs. He was strong; stronger than he'd ever been before. The bully approached and without even thinking about it, Popeye swung his fist, knocking him clear over the side of the ship and into the water. A new Slayer had been Called.
The downside of this was, when her commanding officers found out that she'd been masquerading for years as a man, Miss Popeye was forced out of the merchant marine, her still-uncommitted girlfriend, Olive Oyl left her and went off with Bluto, and Sweet Pea, the baby the hapless sailor had been passing off as a nephew was discovered to be her son instead. Popeye, despite the trauma of being outed, was still a team player. Her parting words as she left her ship for the last time were ones to live by:
“I yam what I yam and that's all what I yam!”
