Episode Quotes
Angel: Is this a bad time?
Buffy: Are you crazy? You don't just sneak up on people in a graveyard. You make noise when you walk. You stomp or... yodel.

Buffy: Are you jealous?
Angel: Of Xander? Please. He's just a kid.
Buffy: Is it 'cause I danced with him?
Angel: "Danced with" is a pretty loose term. "Mated with" might be little closer.
Buffy: Don't you think you're being a little unfair? It was one little dance, which I only did to make you crazy, by the way. Behold my success.
Angel: I am not jealous!
Buffy: You're not jealous? What, vampires don't get jealous?
Angel: See, whenever we fight you always bring up the vampire thing.

Buffy: You just say, "Hey, I got a thing, you maybe have a thing, maybe we could have a thing."
Giles: Oh, thank you, Cyrano.

Xander: Now, is it time to have a talk about the facts of life?
Giles: You know, I'm suddenly deciding this is none of your business.
Xander: You know, because that whole stork thing is a smoke screen.

Willow: This shouldn't take long. I'm probably the only girl in school who has the coroner's office bookmarked as a favorite place.

Buffy: I'm an old-fashioned gal. I was raised to believe that men dig up the corpses and women have the babies.

Buffy: And he broke Cordy's heart? Thus possibly proving its existence.

Willow: By the way, are we hoping to find a body, or no body?
Xander: Call me an optimist, but I'm hoping to find a fortune in gold doubloons.

Cordelia: It was horrible. Angel saved me from an arm. God, there were so many parts, they were everywhere. Why are these terrible things always happening to me?
Xander: (cough) Karma!

Angel: What I saw didn't add up to three whole girls. I think they kept some parts.
Buffy: Could this get yuckier?
Willow: They probably kept the other parts to eat.
Buffy: Question answered.

Cultural References
Buffy: Sorry to interrupt, Willow, but it's the Bat-Signal.

In DC Comics' Batman, the Bat Signal, a spotlight aimed at the sky with a picture of a bat on it, is used to let Batman know his services are needed.
