When Willow, Xander, Giles and Angel storm the Fraternity, Angel goes into the household without being invited, despite being a vampire. This is because the fraternity brothers are only temporary residents.
Willow: (trying to explain the Indian film they are watching) She's sad because her lover gave her twelve gold coins, but then the wizard cut open the bag of salt, and now the dancing minions have no place to put their big maple... fish thing.
Willow: I know! We could go to the Bronze and sneak in our own tea bags and ask for hot water.
Xander: Hop off the outlaw train, Will, before you land us all in jail.
Giles: Buffy, you think I don't know what it's like to be sixteen?
Buffy: No. I think you don't know what it's like to be sixteen. And a girl. And the Slayer.
Angel: This isn't some fairy tale. When I kiss you, you don't wake up from a deep sleep and live happily ever after.
Buffy: No. When you kiss me, I wanna die.
Xander: So, Cor, you printing up business cards with your pager number and hours of operation, or just going with a halter top tonight?
Willow: I can't believe she lied to Giles. My world is all askew.
Xander: Buffy's lying? Buffy's going to frat parties? That's not askew, that's cockeyed.
Willow: Askew means cockeyed.
Willow: The reflection thing that you don't have. Angel, how do you shave?
Willow: (to Angel) Well, why do you think she went to that party? Because you gave her the brush-off! (to Giles) And you never let her do anything except work and patrol! And I know she's the Chosen One, but you're killing her with the pressure! I mean, she's sixteen going on forty! (back to Angel) And you! I mean, you're gonna live forever! You don't have time for a cup of coffee? Okay, I don't feel better now, and we've gotta help Buffy.
Xander: One day I'll have money. Prestige. Power. And on that day they'll still have more.
Buffy: I told one lie, I had one drink.
Giles: Yes, and you were very nearly devoured by a giant demon snake. The words "let that be a lesson" are a tad redundant at this juncture.
