Quote of the Day

Giles: Saw what?

Buffy: Death.

Cordelia: Death?

Willow: The Death? As in, ‘It is your time’?

Giles: Buffy, a-a-a frightened child…

Buffy: Yeah, but I thought I saw something. I’m not sure, I was really out of it, but…

Cordelia: But you do know that you saw death.

Willow: Did it have an hourglass?

Xander: Ooo, if he asks you to play chess, don’t even do it. The guy’s, like, a whiz.

Buffy: Maybe it wasn’t death. Maybe it was something else.

Cordelia: So this isn’t about you being afraid of hospitals ’cause your friend died and you wanna conjure up a monster that you can fight so you can save everybody and not feel so helpless?

Giles: Cordelia, have you actually ever heard of tact?

Cordelia: Tact is just not saying true stuff. I’ll pass.

Quote of the Day

“The Dark Lord will return, and Harry Potter will be in terrible danger when he does.”

There was a long pause, and slowly Snape regained control of himself, mastered his own breathing. At long last he said, “Very well. Very well. But never — never tell, Dumbledore! This must be between us! Swear it! I cannot bear . . . especially Potter’s son . . . I want your word!”

“My word, Severus, that I shall never reveal the best of you?” Dumbledore sighed, looking down into Snape’s ferocious, anguished face. “If you insist . . .”

Mal: Now I got to know how close the Alliance is, exactly how much you told them before Wash scrambled your call. So, I’ve given Jayne here the job of finding out.

Jayne: He was non-specific as to how.

Mal: (to Jayne) Now you only gotta scare him.

Jayne: Pain is scary…

Quote of the Day

He filled his lungs and hailed ‘Polychrest’ in a tone that echoed back from Portsmouth and stopped the mild gossip in the launch stone dead. ‘Polychrest!’

‘Sir?’ came back Bonden’s voice out of the dripping gloom.

‘Double up to the inn, d’ye hear me? Up the lane. Bring your stretchers.’

‘Aye-aye, sir.’

In a moment the launch was empty. Stretchers, the boat’s long wooden footrests, meant a row. The captain was no doubt pressing some hands, and they, pressed men themselves, did not mean to miss a second of the fun.

Xander: Flowers for milady.

Buffy: I think they call those balloons.

Xander: Yeah, stick ’em in water, maybe they’ll grow.

Willow: Not to be outdone…

Buffy: Homework!

Willow: It’s my way of saying, ‘get well soon’.

Buffy: You know, chocolate says that even better.

Willow: I did all your assignments. All you have to do is sign your name.

Buffy: Chocolate means nothing to me.

Cordelia: Nobody told me I was supposed to bring a gift. I was out of the loop on gifts.

Giles: It’s, it’s tradition among, um… people.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer – Season 2: Episode 18 – “Killed by Death

Quote of the Day

He did not know why he was doing it, why he was approaching the dying man: He did not know what he felt as he saw Snape’s white face, and the fingers trying to staunch the bloody wound at his neck. Harry took off the Invisibility Cloak and looked down upon the man he hated, whose widening black eyes found Harry as he tried to speak. Harry bent over him, and Snape seized the front of his robes and pulled him close.

A terrible rasping, gurgling noise issued from Snape’s throat.

“Take . . . it. . . . Take . . . it. . . .”

Something more than blood was leaking from Snape. Silvery blue, neither gas nor liquid, it gushed from his mouth and his ears and his eyes, and Harry knew what it was, but did not know what to do —

A flask, conjured from thin air, was thrust into his shaking hands by Hermione. Harry lifted the silvery substance into it with his wand. When the flask was full to the brim, and Snape looked as though there was no blood left in him, his grip on Harry’s robes slackened.

“Look . . . at . . . me. . . .” he whispered.

The green eyes found the black, but after a second, something in the depths of the dark pair seemed to vanish, leaving them fixed, blank, and empty. The hand holding Harry thudded to the floor, and Snape moved no more.

Giles: The ritual go all right?

Willow: Oh, yeah. It went fine. Well, it went fine until Angel showed up and told Buffy’s mom that he and Buffy had… Well, you know, that they had… you know. You do know, right?

Giles: Oh, yes. Yes. Sorry.

Willow: Oh, good, ’cause I just realized that being a librarian and all, you maybe didn’t know.

Giles: Oh, thank you. I got it.

Willow: You would have been proud of her, though. She totally kept her cool…….. Okay, well, I’ll tell Buffy you stopped by.

Giles: Would you, um… Perhaps I should intervene on, on Buffy’s behalf w-w-with her mother. Um, maybe… say something?

Willow: Sure! Like, what would you say?

Giles: W… Uh…  (Willow opens the door for him.) You will tell Buffy I dropped by?

Willow: You bet.
