Quotes[edit | edit source]


  • Buffy Summers: What happened to Xander?
  • Rupert Giles: He kept poking me with his hook. I sent him over to Charmed Objects. With any luck, he'll pick the wrong one and end up in an alternative dimension inhabited by a 50-foot Giles that squishes annoying teeny pirates.


  • Rupert Giles: Besides, it's Halloween. It's the one time of the year that supernatural threats give it a well-deserved rest, as should you.
  • Buffy Summers: Yeah? What about costumes that take over your personality? Or wee, little, Irish fear demony thingies?
  • Rupert Giles: If anything calamitous should happen, history suggests it will happen to one of us.


  • Buffy Summers: Is that why you're always cleaning your glasses? So you don't have to see what we're doing?
  • Rupert Giles: Tell no one.



  • Spike: It's Halloween, you nit! We take the night off. Those are the rules.
  • Vampire Teen: Me and mine don't follow no stinking rules. We're rebels.
  • Spike: No, I'm a rebel. You're an idiot.


  • Rupert Giles: We need to have a conversation.
  • Dawn Summers: This the part where you tell me you're not angry? Just disappointed?
  • Rupert Giles: Pretty much. Except for the bit about not being angry.


  • Dawn Summers: I've been kissed before. I-I kiss all the time. Not that I'm a kiss slut. Just, you know, with-with the lips and-and the pressing together and stuff. Hey, expert here. Okay, okay, it was my first kiss. I know, I know, I suck. My-my lips are dry and my tongue's all horrible and sticky and I'm pretty sure I drooled on you.
