Buffy: I killed Angel! Do you even remember that? I would have given up everything I had to be with— I loved him more than I will ever love anything in this life. And I put a sword through his heart because I had to.
Willow: And that all worked out okay.
Buffy: Do you remember cheering me on? Both of you. Do you remember giving me Willow's message: "Kick his ass"?
Willow: I never said that!
Xander: Hopes? Oh, no, no, no, no, no. There are no hopes. Anya and I are done. I love being single. I'm a strong, successful male who is giddy at the thought of all the women I will no doubt be dating in the near future.
Buffy: Strong, successful males say "giddy"?
Olaf: Ha, ha, ha! Sweet Aud! Your logic is insane and happenstance, like that of a troll. It is no wonder that the bar matrons talk of you.
Village Woman: It's the largest troll I've ever seen!
Village Man: Run! Hide your babies and your bead work!
Olaf Troll: Stop! It's Olaf. Stop! It is Olaf!
Village Man: The troll is doing an Olaf impersonation!
Olaf Troll: I am Olaf!
Village Man: Hit him with fruits and various meats.
Buffy: Xander. It's OK. She didn't tell us for a reason. She didn't tell us because she knows what I have to do. I have to kill Anya.
Xander: There are other options.
Buffy: I've considered them.
Xander: When? Just now? Took you all of ten seconds to decide to kill one of your best friends?
Buffy: The thought that it might come to this has occurred to me before. It's occurred to you, too.
Xander: You don't understand. This isn't an intervention. Buffy's coming to kill you.
Anya: She's coming to try.
Xander: Did everybody have their crazy flakes today? You guys are friends. How could you talk like this?
Anya: This is getting to be a pattern with you, Buffy. Are there any friends of yours left you haven't tried to kill?
D'Hoffryn: (about the dead bodies in the frat house) Oh, breathtaking. It's like somebody slaughtered an Abercrombie and Fitch catalog.
Anya: You should've killed me.
D'Hoffryn: Oh, I wouldn't worry about that. From beneath you, it devours. Be patient. All good things in time.
D'Hoffryn: Isn't that just like the Slayer? Solving all her problems by sticking things with sharp objects.
Dawn: People may say something to you you don't understand. Just don't be afraid to keep your mouth shut and pretend like you know what they're saying.
Willow: You know, Dawn, I've been to college before.
Dawn: People may say something like "My protein window closes in an hour." Just nod and smile. Mm-hmm. Turns out it has something to do with fitness.
Willow: What are you doing here? Walking out of the fraternity house in the middle of the day?
Anya: Uh, um... I have a new boyfriend now. He lives here.
Willow: That's great.
Anya: Yeah, we just had lots and lots of sex.
Buffy: She had to go pretty quickly. I think she had to sign up for classes or something.
Xander: Ah, yes, there is little that can distract the Willow when she's on the hunt for the mighty syllabi.
Buffy: It's Okay. Xander, I know this is hard for you to hear, but it's what I have to do.
Xander: Hard for me to hear? Buffy, you want to kill Anya!
Buffy: I don't want to.
Xander: Then don't! This isn't new ground for us. When our friends go all crazy and start killing people, we help them.
D'Hoffryn: Isn't that just like a slayer. Solving all her problems by sticking things with sharp objects. I talked to your friend, Miss Rosenberg. She's a firebrand. I have high hopes for her.
Xander: Stay away from Willow.
D'Hoffryn: Oh, he's gallant, isn't he. (to Anya) I understand what you saw in him. Look, Miss Rosenberg seems to think Anyanka would be better suited outside the vengeance fold. I think we already know what Lady HacksAway wants. And the young man, he sees with the eyeballs of love. But I'm not sure if anyone's bothered to find out what Anyanka herself really wants.
Olaf: I've told you a thousand times, I have no interest in this Rannveig. Her hips are large and load-bearing, like a Baltic woman. Your hips are narrow, like a Baltic woman from a slightly more arid region.
Aud: I don't talk to people much. I mean, I talk to them, but they don't talk to me, except to say that, "your questions are irksome," and, "perhaps you should take your furs and your literal interpretations to the other side of the river."
Buffy: Anya, I'm sorry.
Anya: You're apologizing to me? What fight are you watching? Or is this like one of your little pop culture references I don't get?
