Riley: "It's just a debriefing. They're not gonna make me disappear, and they're not pinning anything on me. I got Graham and a lot of the guys testifying I'm the reason they're alive. I might actually get out of this with an honorable discharge."
Giles: "In return for you silence, no doubt."
Riley: "Oh yeah. Having the inside scoop on the administration's own Bay of Mutated Pigs is definitely an advantage."
Willow: "Yeah, it's like you're blackmailing the government! In a patriotic way..."

Xander: "Dinner is served! My very own recipe."
Willow: "You pushed the button on the microwave marked 'popcorn'?"
Xander: "Actually, I pushed 'defrost'. But Joyce was there in the clinch."

Joyce: "It was nice meeting you... finally. Notice how pointedly I said 'finally'?"
Buffy: "No..."

Xander: "Apocalypse Now is a gay romp! It's the feel good movie of whatever year it was!"

Tara: "I think it's strange... I mean I think I should worry, that we haven't found her name."

Oz: "Heard you're taking Drama."
Willow: "Uh huh."
Oz: "Tough course."
Willow: You took it?"
Oz: "Oh, I've been here forever."
Xander: "So, whatchya been doing? Doing spells? She does spells with Tara."
Oz: "I heard about that."
Willow: "I'm gonna be late."
Xander: "Sometimes I think about two women doing a spell... and then I do a spell by myself."

Harmony: "I can't wait til our scene! I love you! Don't step on my cues."
Willow: "Production?"
Buffy: "Oh my god the place is packed. Everybody's here. Your whole family is in the front row -- and they look really angry!"
Willow: "There's a production?"
Harmony: "Someone's got stage fright..."
Willow: "But isn't this the first class?"
Riley: "Well you showed up late or you'd have a better part! I'm cowboy guy!"
Buffy: "Your costume is perfect. No one is ever gonna know the truth. You know, about you."
Willow: "Find -- but -- costume?"
Buffy: "Ooh, you're already in character. I should have done that."
Willow: "But how come there's a -- I mean, I was given to understand that a drama class would have a, you know, drama class. We haven't even rehearsed --"
Harmony: "Well maybe some people haven't..."
Riley: "I was on time so I got to be cowboy guy."

Giles: "Remember, acting isn't about behaving. It's about hiding. The audience wants to find you, they want to strip you naked and eat you alive so HIDE."

Giles: "Yes. It's all about subterfuge. That's very annoying. So get out there, lie like dogs and have a wonderful time. If we can stay focused, keep our heads and if Willow can stop steping on everybody's cues I know this will be the best production of Death of a Salesman we've ever done."

Cheese Man: "I've made a little space for the cheese slices..."

Tara: "Things aren't going very well."
Willow: "Well, NO. Drama class is just, I think they're really not doing things in the proper way, and now I'm in a play and my whole family's here and why is there a cowboy in Death of a Salesman anyway?"
Tara: "You don't understand yet, do you."

Harmony: "Why have you come to our lonely small town, which has no post office and very few exports?"
Riley: "I've come looking for a man. A sales-man."

Buffy: "But what else could I expect from a bunch of low rent, no account hoodlums like you -- hoodlums! Yes. I mean you and your friends, your whole sex, throw em all in the sea for all I care, throw em in and wait for the bubbles. Men, with your groping and spitting, all groin no brain three billion of ya passin around the same worn out urge. Men. With your... sales."

Buffy: "Well you must have done something..."
Willow: "No! I never do anything! I'm very seldom naughty."

Anya: "Oh my god! It's like a tragedy!"
Oz: "I tried to warn you..."
Anya: "It's exactly like a greek tragedy. There should only be greeks."
Willow: "My book report. This summer, I read The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe..."
Xander: "Oh, who cares...?

Xander: "I'm awake! I'm good. Did I miss anything?"
Giles: "Nothing much at all, really."
Buffy: "Bunch of massacring."

Buffy: "You want some corn?"
Xander: "Butter flavor?"
Buffy: "New car smell."
Xander: "Cool."

Giles: "I'm beginning to understand this now. It's all about the journey, isn't it?"
Xander: "Well, thanks for making me have to pee."
Buffy: "You don't need any help, right?"
Xander: "I got a system."

Joyce: "Don't get lost..."

Xander: "That's not the way out..."

Spike: "Giles here is gonna teach me to be a Watcher. Says I got the stuff."
Giles: "Spike's like a son to me..."

Xander: "Gotta have something. Gotta be always moving forward."
Buffy: "Like a shark."
Xander: "A shark with feet. And much less... fins."
Spike: "And on land."
Giles: "Very good..."
Xander: "Buffy, are you sure you want to play there? Pretty big sandbox."
Buffy: "I'm okay. It's not coming for me yet."
Xander: "I just mean... You can't protect yourself from... some stuff."
Buffy: "I'm way ahead of you, big brother."
Xander: "Brother?"

Anya: "Do you know where you're going?"

Xander: "Do you mind? I'm talking to my demon."
Willow: "Sorry."
Tara: "We just think you're really interesting."
Xander: "Oh, I'm going places."

Anya: "I'll be fine. I think I've figured out how to steer by gesturing emphatically."

Cheese Man: "These will not protect you..."

Snyder: "Are you a soldier?"
Xander: "I'm a comfortador."
Snyder: "You're neither. You're a whipping boy, raised by mongrels, and set on a sacrificial stone."
Xander: "I'm getting a cramp..."

Anya: "Maybe we should slap her."

Buffy: "We're gonna miss all the good stuff!"
Olivia: "Does she always want to train this badly?"
Giles: "It appears she never heard the fable about patience."
Olivia: "Which one is that?"
Giles: "You know, with the fox, and the... less patient fox."

Giles: "Buffy, you have a sacred birthright to protect mankind. Don't stick out your elbow."

Giles: "I know you..."

Spike: "I've hired myself out as an attraction."
Giles: "Sideshow freak?"
Spike: "At least it's showbiz..."

Cheese Man: "I wear the cheese. It does not wear me."
Giles: "Honestly, you meet the most appalling sort of people..."

Giles: "I'm sorry I'm so late. There's a great deal going on, all at once."

Giles: "It's strange. It' s not like anything we've faced before, yet it seems familiar somehow. Of course! The spell we cast with Buffy must have released some primal evil, that's come back seeking... I'm not sure what. Willow, look through the Chronicles. For some reference to a warrior beast... I've got to warn Buffy. There's every chance she might be next. Xander, help Willow and try not to bleed on my couch, i've just had it steam-cleaned. No, wait..."

Anya: "Buffy, you have to wake up! Right away!"
Buffy: "I'm not really in charge of these things..."

Tara: "You think you know... What's to come... what you are... You haven't even begun."
Buffy: "I gotta find the others."
Tara: "Be back before dawn..."

Joyce: "You go find your friends."
Buffy: "I think they're in trouble-danger..."

Riley: "Hey there, killer."
Buffy: "Riley! You're back!"
Riley: "I never left."
Buffy: How did the debriefing go?"
Riley: "I told you not to worry about that! It went great. They made me Surgeon General."
Buffy: "Why didn't you come and tell me? We could have celebrated."

Riley: "Oh, we're drawing up a plan for world domination. The key element? Coffee makers that think."
Buffy: "World domination. Is that a good?"
Riley: "Baby, we're the government. It's what we do."

Riley: "Buffy, we've got important work here. A lot of filing, and giving things names."
Buffy: "What was yours?"
Adam: "Before Adam? Not a man among us can remember."
Voice: "The demons have escaped. Please run for your lives."
Adam: "This could be trouble."
Riley: "We'd better make a fort."
Adam: "I'll get the pillows."

Tara: "I have no speech. No name. I live in the action of death. The blood-cry, the penetrating wound. I am destruction. Absolute. Alone."
Buffy: "The Slayer."
Tara: "The first."

Tara: "The slayer doesn't walk in the world."
Buffy: "I walk. I talk. I shop, I sneeze, I'm gonna be a fireman when the floods roll back. There's trees in the desert since you moved out, and I don't sleep on a bed of bones. Now give me back my friends."
Primitive: "No... friends... just the kill... we are... alone."

Buffy: "Are you quite finished? You just have to get over the whole primal power thing. You're not the source of me."

Willow: "The first slayer... wow."
Xander: "Not big with the socialization."
Willow: "Or the floss..."
Giles: "Somehow, our joining with Buffy and invoking the essence of the Slayer's power was an affront to the source of that power."
Buffy: "You know, you coulda brought that up before we did it."
Giles: "I did! I said there could be dire consequences!"
Buffy: "You say that about chewing too fast."

Buffy: "Yeah, well at least you all didn't dream about that guy with the cheese... Don't know where the Hell that came from..."

Tara: "You think you know. What's to come, what you are... You haven't even begun."
