Harmony: You love that tunnel more than me.
Spike: I love syphilis more than you.
Oz: Okay, either I'm borrowing all your albums, or I'm moving in.
Giles: Oz, there are more important things than records right now.
Oz: (pulls out Loaded by The Velvet Underground) More important than this one?
Giles: Um, I suppose an argument could be made for...
Xander: Whoa, Giles has a TV. Everybody, Giles has a TV! He's shallow like us.
Oz: I got to admit, I'm a little disappointed.
Willow: Well, maybe it doesn't work. It's like art.
Harmony: Being a vampire sucks.
Spike: So, you let Parker take a poke, eh? Didn't seem like you knew each other that well. What exactly did it take to pry apart the Slayer's dimpled knees?
Buffy: You're a pig, Spike.
Spike: Did he play the sensitive lad and get you to seduce him? That's a good trick if the girl's thick enough to buy it. I wonder what you did wrong. Uh, too strong? Did you bruise the boy? Whatever. I guess you're not worth a second go. Come to think of it, seems like someone told me as much. Who was that? Oh yeah. Angel.
Spike takes off the necklace, before trying to get the ring off Harmony, but it then reappears when she throws it at him. Also, at this point, there appears to be no pendant attached to it.
The students that are seen on the campus, all suddenly disappear once Spike shows up to fight Buffy.
