Buffy: It is. You want her, Mr. Maclay? You can go ahead and take her. You just gotta go through me.
Mr. Maclay: What?
Buffy: You heard me. You wanna take Tara out of here against her will? You gotta go through me.
Dawn: And me!
Mr. Maclay: Is this a joke? I'm not gonna be threatened by two little girls.

Buffy: She's a hair-puller.

Xander: You're dealing with all of us.
Spike: Cept me.
Xander: Cept Spike.
Spike: I don't care what happens.
