Quotes Edit

  • Xander Harris: Are you ready to get down, you funky party weasel?


  • Angel: My people - before I was changed - they exchanged this as a sign of devotion. It's a Claddagh ring. The hands represent friendship; the crown represents loyalty... and the heart... Well, you know... Wear it with the heart pointing towards you. It means you belong to somebody. Like this.


  • Angel: Still, not every dream you have comes true. I mean, what else did you dream last night? Can you remember?
  • Buffy Summers: I dreamt... I dreamt that Giles and I opened an office supply warehouse in Vegas.
  • Angel: See my point?


  • Angel: You still haven't told me what you wanted for your birthday.
  • Buffy Summers: Surprise me.
  • Angel: Okay. I will.
  • Buffy Summers: This is nice. I like seeing you first thing in the morning.
  • Angel: It's bedtime for me.
  • Buffy Summers: Well, then I like seeing you at bedtime. Um... Um, heh... Y-you know what I mean.
  • Angel: I think so. What do you mean?
  • Buffy Summers: I like seeing you. The part at the end of the night where we say goodbye... It's getting harder.
  • Angel: Yeah. It is.


  • Spike: You might give him a chance to find your lost treasure. He is a wanker, but he's the only one we've got with half a brain. If he fails, you can eat his eyes out of the sockets for all I care.
