Meg Penny (Shawnee Smith), The Blob
''She's a cheerleader, she's intelligent, she's motivated, she's trying to kill the thing, she has a machine gun, and I love her. I had a picture of her toting a machine gun which took me months to find when you actually went into stores to find pictures. I had it framed on my desk the entire time I was running Buffy. She's just tough as nails and sympathetic and lovely, and definitely a seminal character for me.''
