Buffy: You lied to me?
Dawn: Didn't lie e-exactly.
Buffy: Really? What about all the times I asked you how school was and you said "fine"?
Dawn: Well, it was. You didn't ask if I was in it when it was fine.
Xander: Honey, old saying: "A watched customer never buys."
Anya: They would if they were patriotic.
Xander: Okay, I'm going in. (to Anya) Patriotic?
Anya: Yes. I've recently come to realize there's more to me than just being human. I'm also an American.
Giles: Yes, I suppose you are, in a matter of speaking. You were born here - your mortal self.
Anya: Well, that's right, foreigner.
Xander: Ahn, how's about we try being a bit less prejudiced and a bit more inclusive? Not us, just you.
Willow: I know it is. And I'm a big fan of school. You know me. I'm like, "Go school, it's your birthday!" Or something to that effect.
Willow: I'd totally be blowing off classes if I were in Dawnie's shoes.
Tara: Sweetie, you wouldn't blow off a class if your head was on fire.
Willow: Well, I took Psych 101. I mean, I took it from an evil government scientist who was skewered by her Frankenstein-like creation before the final, but I know what a Freudian slip is.
Xander: It's just for one night.
Willow: Yeah, I know, but it's a whole night. I don't think I can sleep without her.
Anya: You can sleep with me. Well, now, that came out a lot more lesbian than it sounded in my head.
Glory: Did anybody order an apocalypse?
Buffy: She was looking to go all paybacky on Glory for a minute, but I cooled her down a little. Actually, a lot.
Spike: So, she's not gonna do anything rash then?
Buffy: No. I explained there was no point.
Spike: You - So you're saying that a powerful and mightily pissed off witch was planning on going and spilling herself a few pints of god blood until you, what, "explained"?
Buffy: You think she...? No. I told Willow it would be like suicide.
Spike: I'd do it. Right person. Person I loved. I'd do it.
