Tara: "Your one-stop spot to shop for all your occult needs." Catchy.
Giles: Think so?
Tara: Uh-huh, in a... hard to read sort of way, but I think it's great.
Xander: I'm just saying, I think it's rude.
Willow: I wouldn't call it rude.
Xander: Rude-ish. Rude-esque. Whatever you want to call it. When a person makes a "destroy all vampires" date, it's simple courtesy to wait for your co-destroyers. Am I right, Giles?
Giles: I'm almost certain you're not, but to be fair, I wasn't listening.
Anya: I mean, I for one didn't want to start my day with a slaughter. Which really just goes to show how much I've grown!
Spike: Okay, how about this one. Twice in recent memory, she's had the lover-wiccas do a de-invite on the house. Keep out specific vamps. Ever ask yourself why she's never taken my name off the guest list?
Riley: Because you're harmless.
Spike: Oh, yeah, right. Takes one to know, I suppose. At least I still got the attitude. What do you got, a piercing glance? Face it, white bread. Buffy's got a type, and you're not it. She likes us dangerous, rough, occasionally bumpy in the forehead region. Not that she doesn't like you, but sorry, Charlie, you're just not dark enough.
Willow: It feels like we're going around in circles.
Xander: Our circles are going around in circles. We've got dizzy circles here, Giles.
Tara: Something old. So old it pre-dates the written word.
Willow: Giles, the Dagon sphere. You said that was created to repel...
Giles: That which cannot be named.
Willow: So I'm thinking maybe she...
Giles: Predates language itself?
Anya: Hey. Hey! Hey! Hey!
Giles: Anya, your "heys" are startling the customers.
Xander: And pretty much the state.
Anya: Are you stupid or something?
Giles: Allow me to answer that question with a firing.
Xander: She's kidding! An, we talked about the employee/employer vocabulary no-nos. That was number five.
Buffy: How did she get away with this bad mojo stuff?
Anya: Giles sold it to her.
Giles: I - I - I didn't know it was her! I mean, how could I? If it's any consolation, I may have overcharged her.
