Episode Quotes
Riley: What are you?
Buffy: Capricorn, on the cusp of Aquarius. You?

Buffy: I'm the Slayer. (Riley looks at her blankly) Slay-er. Chosen One. She who hangs out a lot in cemeteries. (he still has no reaction) You're kidding. Ask around. Look it up. Slayer, comma, The.

Spike: My soddin' sleeping chair's bloody... sodden.

Willow: So, naturally they're dealing with the crisis the only way they know how: Aftershock Party.
Buffy: Ah, this from the dorm that brought us the Somebody-Sneezed Party, and the Day that Ends in "Y" Party.
Willow: They do seem to be pretty generous with the milestones.

Xander: (to Spike) I hate to break it to you, oh, Impotent One, but you're not the big bad anymore. You're not even the kind of naughty. You're nothing but a waste of space. My space. And as much as I always got a big laugh watching Buffy kick your shiny white bum, and as much as I know I can give you a little bum-kicking myself right now, I'm here to tell you something. You're not even worth it.

Riley: Buffy. She's pretty cool, isn't she?
Forrest: Yes, already! She's cool. She's hot. She's tepid. She's all-temperature Buffy.

Giles: It's the end of the world.
Buffy, Willow, and Xander: Again?!

Riley: I don't know what's happened in your past.
Buffy: Pain. Death. Apocalypse. None of it fun.

Riley: This thing -- this you and me thing... it's stupid!
Buffy: I know. Which is why we can't do it... the you and me thing.
Riley: No. I mean, you're stupid. I mean... I don't mean that. No. I think maybe I do!
Buffy: Wow. With sweet talk like that, you'll definitely melt my reservations.

Giles: Oh - as usual - dear.

Spike: Yeah! That's right! I'm back and I'm a bloody animal!

Spike: What's this? Sitting around watching the telly while there's evil still afoot. That's not very industrious of you. I say we go out there and kick a little demon ass! What, can't go without your Buffy, is that it? Too chicken? Let's find her! She is the Chosen One after all. Come on! Vampires! Grrr! Nasty! Let's annihilate them. For justice and for... the safety of puppies and... Christmas, right? Let's fight that evil! Let's kill something! Oh, come on!
