Buffy: Waiting? Give me a break. We got - We got tons to do.
Dawn: We have soap operas to watch and trashy magazines to read.
Buffy: And an adjustable bed to fiddle with. That alone will keep me busy for four hours or so.
Giles: Oh my god, what a rough night.
Willow: Ha haa! I just did two of 'em! Yay on me. That was pretty cool. Except the part where I was all terrified, and now my knees are all dizzy.
Buffy: You got her a book on spells? The girl who can break things by just looking at them, now has a book to teach her to break things by looking at them.
Willow: Something evil crashed to earth in this and then broke out and slithered away to do badness.
Giles: In all fairness, I don't think we know about the slithered part.
Anya: Oh, no. I'm sure it frisked about like a fluffy lamb.
Riley: That might be toxic. Don't touch it.
Xander: Oh, yeah, touching it was my first impulse. Luckily, I've moved on to my second, which involves dry heaving and running like hell.
Willow: So, we'll just figure this out ourselves. We're experienced.
Anya: Yes, 'cause it seems like we're always dealing with creatures from outer space... except that we don't ever do that.
Giles: Perhaps we should explore a bit more. Head into the woods a bit.
Xander: Who votes research?
Giles: Much better idea.
Riley: Yeah, I think that's a good call.
Xander: Look at how teeny Mercury is, compared to, like, Saturn. Whereas in contrast, the cars of the same name...
Xander: I still don't get why we had to come here to get info about a killer snot monster.
Giles: Because it's a killer snot monster from outer space. I did not say that.
Joyce: No matter what she is, she still feels like my daughter. I have to know that you'll take care of her, that you'll keep her safe, that you'll love her like I love you.
Buffy: I promise.
