Episode Quotes
Anya: Let the girl speak the truth. We're all on death's door, repeatedly ringing the doorbell, like maniacal Girl Scouts trying to make quota.

Xander: Yeah, I'll get the magazines and start ripping out the letters now. “Dear Mr. First, if you want your Bringer back ... well, we'll be surprised because you've got like three million of them so please disregard this letter. Yours sincerely—”

Giles: The Bringer's dumb.
Anya: And you were expecting, what? A Rhodes Scholar?

Principal Wood: That's exactly what The First does. Finds your Achilles heel.
Faith: Nah, it just talked to me. What? It does a heel thing, too?
Principal Wood: It's a phrase. Your weak spot.
Faith: Oh. The school thing. I was kind of absent that decade.
