Say What? - quote of the week...
Buffy: Seems like things could get heavier. I mean, his world's falling apart.
Anya: And after you went through all that stuff with Angel... You should get a boring boyfriend, like Xander. But you can't have Xander.
Buffy: That was the idea. Riley was supposed to be Mr. Joe Guy. We were supposed to to dumb stuff - like hold hands through the daisies going, 'tra, la, la...'
Willow: Poor Buffy. Your life resists all things average.
Anya: So dump him. But you can't have Xander.
Buffy: I'll try to remember that.
