Buffy: Giles -- what's wrong?
Giles: Have you seen the new library? It's nothing but computers. Not a book to be seen. I don't know where to begin. Buffy, who do we talk to?
Andrew: Willow. Call for you. From L.A. Somebody named Fred. Guy sounds kinda effeminate.
Giles: Spike is a liability, Buffy. He refuses to see that. And so do you. Angel left here because he knew how harmful your relationship with him was. Spike, on the other hand, lacks such self-awareness.
