Go Fish, Inca Mummy Girl, or Reptile Boy. Which one would you keep?

I'd keep them. They are bad episodes side by side with all of the others but they serve a purpose in continuing the various relationships and character development. If I had to choose between keeping everything about S2 as is, or redoing everything I would keep the season the way it is. Using this type of logic, I feel compelled to keep these 3 specific episodes as well. People above did a good job of discussing how each of these episodes have their redeeming elements, and it is these elements that make them better with re-watches as opposed to worse. I feel the same way about other episodes, such as Bad Eggs. The characters and relationships grow too much in little scenes here and there to consider them drop-able. Relatively speaking.
I agree. I feel like S2 was so good they feel crappy in some ways, but they all had great parts and moved the story along, even in little ways.

If I had to choose one, I’d choose Reptile Boy for the B/A and B/C interactions, but I really think they all belong even if they aren’t “the best.”

Re-watched Reptile Boy the other. And you know what I WAS WRONG!!:eek: Its a pretty solid episode. There's some good comedy and character moments. The opening scene is adorable. Even the cheesy MOTW stuff is fun in a goofy sort of way. Its not amazing, and drags at times. But its not a bad episode. Unlike the other two;)

Just like I said I choose Reptile Boy to keep, I love this episode. The one that I would ditch is Go Fish, I hate this episode! Partly because Spike isn't in it after where IOHEFY left off, & it's boring as hell.

I think Reptile Boy - you get some good Willow and it helps move Bangel along. I'd still have to have the costume party and Oz noticing Willow though from Inca Mummy Girl.

Personally, I like all three episodes, especially when you compare them to what we see in the later seasons on Buffy.

They all have good moments and are worthy of re-watching almost every time.
