Say What? - quote of the week... More Quotes
Buffy: You know, in the midst of all this insanity, a couple of things are actually starting to make sense. And the guy thing... I always feared there was something wrong with me. You know, because I couldn't make it work. But maybe I'm not supposed to.
Angel: Because you're the Slayer.
Buffy: Because... okay. I'm cookie dough. I'm not done baking. I'm not finished becoming whoever the hell it is I'm going to turn out to be. I make it through this and the next thing and the next thing and maybe one day I turn around and realize I'm ready. I'm cookies. And then, you know, if I want someone to eat m-... or enjoy warm, delicious cookie-me, then that's fine. That'll be then. When I'm done.
Angel: Any thoughts on who might enjoy... do I have to go with the cookie analogy?
Buffy: I'm not really thinking that far ahead. That's kinda the point.
