Episode Quotes
Spike: So you want to jump right to the kissing then, eh?
Buffy: I am not kissing you, Spike. Once was --
Spike: Twice.

Xander: Aha! I got it! Here's our villain, right here! What?
Anya: That's a D&D manual, sweetie.
Xander: No, but it could -- (looks at the book cover) Oh.
Anya: Let's face it. We're not gonna find this thing because it doesn't exist. There's no such thing as a frost monster who eats diamonds.
Buffy: Well, maybe he doesn't eat them. You know, maybe he just... thinks they're pretty.

Xander: (about Spike) So what did Captain Peroxide want?

Xander: It seems like we've been through every book.
Anya: Yeah, even the ones that weren't so boring you wanted to kill yourself.
Xander: We have those?

(Spike hits Buffy)
Spike: Oh, the pain. The pain... is gone. Guess what I just found out? Looks like I'm not as toothless as you thought, sweetheart.
Buffy: How?
Spike: Don't you get it? Don't you see? You came back wrong.

Episode Goofs
Andrew claims to have seen every episode of Doctor Who. This is impossible since he isn't old enough to have seen the series since its earliest transmissions that began in 1963 and the BBC wiped many of the episodes from their archives, many of which have yet to be recovered.
