I couldn't help but reach for spike. Cuz, even thought how much I translate this to something, it just ends up having Spike's self-esteem broken. Just like me... Its crazy and unhealthy, but its really me. I feel for this really deep.

I think it would have been funnier if Spike overheard her telling the "stallion" how gorgeous he was and how she was absolutely in love with it...but actually be revealed to be talking to the dress she just created and fitted onto the dummy.
