Episode Quotes
Giles: Buffy, a word in your ear. If you think of the store as a library it'll help you to concentrate on service rather than selling.
Buffy: Yes. And then I'm going to marry Bob Dole and raise penguins in Guam.
Giles: (not listening) Yes, uh, quite right. Yes.

Warren: This mummy hand has ceased to be!
Andrew: It is an ex-mummy hand!

(Spike is playing poker and can't provide the ante)
Spike: So, who's gonna advance me a tiny tabby, get me started? (no one responds) C'mon. Someone's gotta stake me.
Buffy: I'll do it. What? You thought I was just going to let that lie there?
