Xander: Because that's what we used to kill that big demon that one time. No, wait. That was a rocket launcher. Ahn, what are you talkin' about?
Anya: We should drop a piano on her. Well, it always works for that creepy cartoon rabbit when he's running from that nice man with the speech impediment.
Giles: Yes, or perhaps we could paint a convincing tunnel on the side of a mountain. Let's just keep thinking, everyone.
Giles: (seeing Spike) What's he doing here?
Spike: Just out for a jaunt. Thought I'd swing by and say howdy.
Buffy: He's here because we need him.
Xander: The hell we do.
Buffy: If Glory finds us, he's the only one besides me that has any chance of protecting Dawn.
Xander: Buffy, come on.
Buffy: Look, this isn't a discussion! He stays. Get over it.
Spike: Buckle up, kids. Daddy's puttin' the hammer down.
Anya: Shouldn't somebody be asking, "are we're there yet?" Isn't that what small, irritating children do?
Dawn: That kinda only works if you know where you're going.
Anya: Do we know where we're going yet?
Spike: Hey, gramps, bloody step on it.
Giles: Step on what? I've driven tricyles with more power.
Xander: Is anybody else queasy?
Anya: He doesn't travel well. He's like fine shrimp.
Xander: Would you give it a rest or --
Spike: Or what, you're gonna toss your cookies on my shoes?
Xander: Or you're going to be Undead Man Walking. See how fast you can hitch a ride with a flaming thumb.
Buffy: For what?
Dawn: You know. Pretty much everything.
Buffy: Yeah. I'm doing a great job.
Dawn: You are.
Buffy: I'm the Slayer. The Chosen One. All mythic and defendery. Evil nasties are supposed to flee from me. Not the other way around.
Dawn: You're not fleeing. You're... moving at a brisk pace.
Buffy: Quaintly referred to in some cultures as the Big Scaredy Run Away.
Buffy: It just keeps coming. Glory, Riley, Tara, Mom.
Dawn: I know, but there's a bright side.
Buffy: There is?
Dawn: At least things can't get any crazier, right?
(an arrow shoots through the wall)
Buffy: You know this is your fault for saying that.
Spike: Hello! You're driving one!
Willow: Don't hit the horsies!
Buffy: We won't. (to Giles) Aim for the horsies.
Dawn: Keep the pressure on.
Spike: Always do, sweet bit.
Xander: I mention today how much I don't like you?
Spike: Might have let it slipped it in... once or twice.
In the widescreen presentation of the episode, when the Knights begin their march in the forest, a man in plaid shirt can be seen to the right part of the screen.
When the female of Glory's minions casts the runes, the sleeves of her robes are rolled up. From this, you can see that the scab makeup only covers her hands.
When the arrow shoots through the wall to interrupt Buffy and Dawn's heart-to-heart talk, you can see a marking of some kind in the wall in the exact point through which the arrow pierces before it actually does. There is another such mark when one strikes near Tara before she is pulled away from the window.
When Anya hits the Knight while he's attacking the window, you can see a large a mountain in the background that does appear to be stationary.
