Xander: Maybe I should join the Army.
Anya: Don't they make you get up really early in the morning?
Xander: Oh, yeah. Never mind.
Adam: This is all how she planned it. Except she thought she would be alive.
Willow: Must be programmed to self-decrypt at a certain point. That is so annoying. It's like someone blurting out the answer to a riddle just when you've -- I mean, yippee! We have the information.
Buffy: Where's Anya?
Xander: Oddly, Anya decided not to join us despite all the fun we had at our last meeting.
Willow: Right. Don't you have to speak it in Sumerian or something?
Giles: I do speak Sumerian. It's not that. Only an experienced witch can enchant it and you'd have to be within striking distance of the subject.
Xander: See what you get for taking French instead of Sumerian?
Buffy: What was I thinking?
Willow: It's not your fault. Spike stirred up trouble.
Buffy: Yeah, but I think trouble was stir-upable.
Colonel McNamara: You think you and your friends can just keep waltzing into a government installation, brandishing weapons like... like...
Willow: It's a gourd.
Giles: It's a magic gourd.
Colonel McNamara: What kind of freaks are you people?
Colonel McNamara: (on how he intends to fight Adam) Incapacitate him with as much voltage as we can muster.
Xander: Great plan. That's right up there with "duck and cover."
Buffy: I've seen Adam hit with taser blasts. He feeds on it. And now you're going to provide him with an all-you-can-eat buffet?
Xander: Buffy, I still don't like you going in alone.
Buffy: I won't be.
Adam: How can you...?
SuperBuffy: You can never hope to grasp the source of our power. But yours is right here.
