Xander: I’m good. We’re fine. Just a little bit dirty. Good show, everyone. Just great. I think we have a hit.
Willow: Are you okay?
Xander: Tip-top, really. If anyone sees my spine laying around, just try not to step on it.
Buffy: Xander, one of these days, you’re gonna get yourself hurt.
Faith: Or killed.
Buffy: Or both. And, you know, with the pain and the death, maybe you shouldn’t be leaping into the fray like that. Maybe you should be… fray-adjacent.
Xander: Excuse me? Who, at a crucial moment, distracted the lead demon by allowing her to pummel him about the head?
Faith: Yeah. That was real manly how you shrieked and all.
Xander: I think you’ll find that was more of a bellow.
