Episode Quotes
Buffy: Nice wheels.
Riley: Came with the car.

Riley: I got some, uh, big stories to tell you, too, if we ever get half a second.
Buffy: Did you die?
Riley: No.
Buffy: I'm gonna win.

Riley: You want me to say that I liked seeing you in bed with that idiot? Or that blinding orange is your very best color? Or that that burger smell is appealing?
Buffy: You smelled the smell?
Riley: Buffy, none of that means anything. It doesn't touch you. You're still the first woman I ever loved and the strongest woman I've ever known. Now, I'm not advertising this to the missus, but you're still quite the hottie.
Buffy: You know, it goes away after many bathings.
