Episode Quotes
Buffy: I think it's maybe some kind of scythe. The only thing I know for sure is that it made Caleb back off in a hurry.
Willow: So it's true. Scythe matters.

Anya: Okay. I'll get Kennedy to watch the girls. She's tough. Imminent death won't bother her.

Xander: And you know what's even worse? All the stupid “it's all fun and games until someone loses an eye” jokes. “Hey, Xander, so no more fun and games, huh?”
Dawn: Giles was just having fun with you.
Xander: That's not the point. It's an obvious joke. It would be like someone calling me a cyclops.

Faith: There's only supposed to be one. Maybe that's why you and I can never get along. We're not supposed to exist together.
Buffy: Also, you went evil and were killing people.

Guardian: What's your name?
Buffy: Buffy.
Guardian: No, really.
