Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997–2003), created by Joss Whedon, is a television series about Buffy Summers, a teenage girl chosen by fate to battle against vampires, demons, and other supernatural foes. Giles: [To Willow] Well then help me in researching this Harvest affair. The Master: [reading from the writing of Aurelius] "There will be a time of crisis, of worlds hanging in the balance.
She is often aided by her Watcher and her loyal circle of misfit friends. And in this time shall come the Anointed, the Master's great warrior. Visited every mental torture on her I could devise. Do you want me to wag my finger at you and tell you that you acted rashly?
Because there's no touching, this school is sensitive to wrong touching.
[everyone stares] That was a bit, um, British, wasn't it? I'm always here if you need a hug, [jumps back] but not a real hug!
[about a computer] It may be that you can wrest some information from that dread machine. I really believe if we all reach out to one another we can beat this thing. But if it's guilt you're looking for, Buffy, I'm not your man. I do what I wanna do, and I wear what I wanna wear. [Xander smiles] I'll date whoever the hell I wanna date.
Otherwise we bottle them up, and before you know it, powerful laxatives are involved. The coming months are, are going to be hard, I suspect on all of us. And here I am, scrambling for your approval, when I'm way cooler than you are 'cause I'm not a sheep.
I make allowances for your youth, but I expect a certain amount of responsibility, instead of which you enslave yourself to this-this... Principal Flutie: We all need help with our feelings. You're nice, and you're funny, and you don't smoke. I mean, three days out of the month, I'm not much fun to be around either. Sometimes the remote impossible possibility that you might like me was all that sustained me. I mean, if I thought you had one clue what it would mean to me, but you don't, so I can't. All you ever do is what everyone else does just so you can say you did it first. Sleeping...waiting..though unwanted...unbidden..will stir..its jaws, and howl.
"Five will die, and from their ashes the Anointed shall rise. Oz: The monkey is the only cookie animal that gets to wear clothes, you know that... So I'm wondering, do the other cookie animals feel sort of ripped?
The Brethren of Aurelius shall greet him, and usher him to his immortal destiny." As it is written, so shall it be. Like, is the hippo going, "hey man, where are my pants?
"And one of the Brethren shall go out hunting the night before and get himself killed, because he couldn't wait to finish his job before he ate." Oh, wait... She was just a girl, and she had her life taken away from her. I have my hippo dignity." And you know the monkey's just, [in French accent] "I mock you with my monkey pants," then there's a big coup at the zoo...
[grabs one of the Brethren by the throat] That's not written anywhere. [throws the vampire into a coffin] Here endeth the lesson. You know, we've never really been close, which is good, 'cause I don't really like you that much. I remember how I felt when I heard the prophecy that I was gonna die. [Awkward beat] Okay, I don't feel better now, and we've got to help Buffy. I just think you're trying to scare me off 'cause you're afraid of the competition. A hundred years, just hanging out, feeling guilty ... Buffy: I mean, people are perfectly happy getting along, and then vampires come, and they run around and they kill people, and they take over your whole house, they start making these stupid little mini-pizzas, and everyone's like, "I like your mini pizzas", but I'm telling you, I am—Buffy: So Mom's like, "Do you think Ted will like this?
The Anointed will be my greatest weapon against the Slayer. Willow: [to Xander] You remember, you fail math, you flunk out of school, you end up being the guy at the pizza place that sweeps the floor and says, "Hey, kids, where's the cool parties this weekend? Angel: When you become a vampire, the demon takes your body, but it doesn't get your soul; that's gone. And you'll always remember what it was like to watch her die. Smell is the most powerful trigger to the memory there is. But you have been known to save the world on occasion, so I'm going to give you a piece of advice. I wasn't exactly obsessed with doing the right thing. Look, Buffy, you may be hot stuff when it comes to demonology or whatever, but when it comes to dating, I'm the Slayer. " and "This is Ted's favorite show", and "Ted's teaching me computers", and "Ted said the funniest thing", and I'm like, "That's really great, Mom", and then she said I was being sarcastic, which I was, but I'm sorry if I don't wanna talk about Ted all the time.
No conscience, no remorse, it's an easy way to live. There was a time when we shared everything, wasn't there Angelus? A certain flower, or a a whiff of smoke can bring up experiences long forgotten. The knowledge gained from a computer is a - it, uh, it has no no texture, no-no context. If it's to last, then-then the getting of knowledge should be, uh, tangible, it should be, um, smelly. Cordelia: Whatever is causing the Joan Collins 'tude, deal with it. Hell, even the school librarian sees more action than me. Willow: [to Angel] Well, why do you think she went to that party? [to Giles] And you never let her do anything except work and patrol! Cordelia: I just don't see why everyone's always picking on Marie Antoinette. She worked really hard to look that good, and people just don't appreciate that kind of effort. Angelus: Spike, my boy, you really don't get it, do you?
