Episode Quotes
Buffy: What happened to Xander?
Giles: He kept poking me with his hook. I sent him over to Charmed Objects. With any luck, he'll poke the wrong one and end up in an alternative dimension, inhabited by a 50-foot Giles that squishes annoying teeny pirates.

Giles: Besides, it's Halloween. It's the one time of the year that supernatural threats give it a well-deserved rest, as should you.
Buffy: Yeah? What about costumes that take over your personality? Or wee, little, Irish fear demony thingies?
Giles: Yes, well, if anything calamitous should happen, history suggests it'll happen to one of us.

Buffy: Is that why you're always cleaning your glasses? So you don't have to see what we're doing?
Giles: Tell no one.

Buffy: Were you parking? With a vamp?
Dawn: I - I didn't know he was dead.
Justin: Living dead.
Dawn: Shut up!
Buffy: How could you not know?
Dawn: I just met him.
Buffy: Oh. Oh, so you went parking in the woods with a boy you just met.

Giles: We need to have a conversation.
Dawn: This the part where you tell me you're not angry? Just disappointed?
Giles: Pretty much. Except for the bit about not being angry.
