Episode Quotes
Giles: We can't let you go until we're sure that you're impotent or --
Spike: Hey!
Giles: Sorry, poor choice of words. Until we know that you're...
Buffy: Flaccid?
Spike: You are one step away, missy!
Buffy: Giles, help! He's gonna scold me.

Anya: (about Oz) I only wish I had my powers back. I'd liquefy his entrails for her.
Xander: That's sweet.

Buffy: Wow. Way to rebound.
Xander: I believe that's the dance of a brave little toaster.

Buffy: Giles! I accidentally killed Spike! That's ok, right?

Spike: Fabulous. Enjoy your honeymoon with the Big Pile of Dust.

Buffy: (to Giles) But this day is about family, my real family. And I would like you to be the one to give me away.
Giles: Oh. Buffy... I... That's so... Oh, for God's sake! This is nonsense.

Buffy: Do you want to be "William the Bloody"? Or just "Spike"? 'Cause, either way, it's gonna look majorly weird.
Spike: Whereas the name "Buffy" gives it that touch of classic elegance.
Buffy: What's wrong with "Buffy"?
Giles: Huh! Such a good question.

(Xander waves his hands in front of Giles's face)
Giles: Stop whatever you're doing. You smell like fruit roll-ups.

Buffy: Spike and I are getting married!
Xander: How? What? How?
Giles: Three excellent questions.

Spike: What are you looking at?
Buffy: The man I love.
Xander: Can I be blind, too?

Spike: I'm not the one who wanted "Wind Beneath My Wings" for the first dance.
Buffy: That was the spell.
