Feedback, It's the coin of the realm.
Buffy was upset with Xander. He got in trouble again. And like always, he was able to get himself out of it. She found out through Willy that Xander stopped a gang of zombies from blowing up the high school while the Hellmouth was open.
“Xander. How do you always get in trouble?”
“I think it’s genetic by proxy. If you knew my great grandfather Joe, you’d understand.”
Willow was confused. “Xander, when I did your family tree years ago, I never found any great grandfather by the name of Joe.”
“He was actually a friend of the family who in spirit adopted my grandmother when she was a baby. He asked her to call him Papa Joe. Just like her children called him Grandpa Joe. I did as well, until he died when I was 5.”
Giles asked what no one else would. “Who is your non familial great grandfather, Xander?”
“Captain Joe Sullivan. United States Air Force.” At this point, Giles started polishing his glasses rather quickly.
“Xander, do you mean to say your great grandfather…” Xander nodded.
“And when you get into trouble?” Xander nodded again.
“And when you get out of trouble?” Xander only grinned. At seeing Xander smile, Giles started laughing.
“If you think I get in trouble, you never met Frankie.”
