Episode Quotes
Cordelia: Buffy. Love the hair. It just screams street urchin.

Larry: You and Buffy, you're just friends, right?
Xander: I like to think of it less as a friendship and more as a solid foundation for future bliss.

Willow: It's too bad we can't sneak a look at the Watcher diaries and read up on Angel. I'm sure it's full of fun facts to know and tell.
Buffy: Yeah. It's too bad. That stuff is private.
Willow: Also Giles keeps them in his office. In his personal files.
Buffy: Most importantly, it would be wrong.

Buffy: (to Giles) Do you stuff your own shirts, or do you send them out?

Drusilla: Do you know what I miss? Leeches.

Xander: Private Harris reporting for... Buffy! Lady of Buffdom, Duchess of Buffonia, I am in awe! I completely renounce spandex!

Cordelia: Is Mr. I'm-the-lead-singer-I'm-so-great-I-don't-have-to-show-up-for-my-date-or-even-call gonna be there?
Oz: Yeah, y'know, he's just going by "Devon" now.

Willow: She couldn't've dressed up like Xena?

Cordelia: That's nice, Willow. And you went mental when?
