The awesomeness of quotes pt 10

About four seasons ago (the series kind) an English friend of mine started this facebook group where we rewatch Buffy the Vampire Slayer one ep a day. How does this work? We all join in at the same time (7 pm their time, 8pm my time) and we watch the episode while leaving comments in the mentioned group/thread. While doing this, I realised Buffy is full of the most amazing quotes. It's part of what makes it the best show ever. I know what you're thinking: We already did Buffy. But until now I've mainly focused on funny quotes, and those are not the only awesome quotes. When looking at movies you've got "Love means having to say you're sorry" (from Love Story) or many, many others. My point? Today I give you a Buffy part 2 quotes page full of amazing quotes. Don't worry, I'll take it slow, a couple of quotes at a time. To start with, I will do about five quotes for each season (I know, not enough by a long shot, but you've got to start somewhere right? :P ). Anyway... Be amazed by the awesomeness of quotes that is Buffy the Vampire Slayer part 2! (SPOILERS!!!!!)

Season 1

"Hey! You think I'm never lonely because I'm so cute and popular? I can be surrounded by people and be completely alone. It's not like any of them really know me. I don't even know if they like me half the time. People just want to be in a popular zone. Sometimes when I talk, everyone's so busy agreeing with me, they don't hear a word I say." 
- Cordelia (1x11 Out of Mind, Out of Sight)

Buffy: [about the prophecy in which she will die] "So that's it, huh? I remember the drill. One slayer dies, the next one's called. I wonder who she is. Will you train her? Or will they send someone else?"
Giles: "Buffy... I... "
Buffy: [wimpering] "Does it say how he's gonna kill me? Do you think it'll hurt? [as Angel steps close to her] Don't touch me! Were you even gonna tell me?"
Giles: "I was hoping I wouldn't have to, that there was some way around it. I... "
Buffy: "I've got a way around it. I quit."
Angel: "It's not that simple. "
Buffy: "I'm making it that simple. I quit. I resign, I-I'm fired, you can find someone else to stop The Master from taking over."
Giles: "I'm not sure that anyone else can. All the... the signs indicate... "
Buffy: [enraged, throwing books at Giles] "The signs?! Read me the signs! Tell me my fortune! You're so useful sitting here with all of your books! You're really a lot of help!"
Giles: "I don't suppose I am.."
Angel: "I know this is hard."
Buffy: "What do you know about this? You're never gonna die!"
Angel: "You think I want anything to happen to you? You think I could stand it? We just gotta figure out a way... "
Buffy: "I already did. I quit, remember. Pay attention!"
Giles: "Buffy, if the Master rises..."
Buffy: "I don't care! I don't care. Giles, I'm sixteen years old. I don't wanna die." 
(1x12 - Prophecy Girl

Season 2

Ford: [after just telling Buffy he has a brain tumor and watching Buffy's hurt reaction] "I'm sorry, Summers. Did I screw up your righteous anger riff? Does the nest of tumors liquefying my brain kinda spoil the fun?"
Buffy: "I'm sorry. I had no idea. But what you're doing is still very wrong."
Ford: "Okay, well, you try vomiting for twenty-four hours straight because the pain in your head is so intense, and then we'll discuss the concept of right and wrong. These people are sheep. They're wanna be vampires 'cause they're lonely, miserable or bored. I don't have a choice."
Buffy: "You have a choice. You don't have a good choice, but you have a choice. You're opting for mass murder here, and nothing you say is gonna make that okay."
(2x07 - Lie to Me)

Giles: "I believe that's called growing up."
Buffy: "Then I'd like to stop, okay?"
Giles: "I know the feeling."
Buffy: "Does it ever get easy?"
[Ford rises from the ground and attacks Buffy, she stakes him]

Giles: "You mean life?"

Buffy: "Yeah. Does it get easy?"
Giles: "What do you want me to say?"
Buffy: "Lie to me."
Giles: "Yes, it's terribly simple. The good guys are always stalwart and true, the bad guys are easily distinguished by their pointy horns or black hats, and, uh, we always defeat them and save the day. No one ever dies, and everybody lives happily ever after."
Buffy: "Liar."
(2x07 - Lie to Me)

"Passion. It lies in all of us. Sleeping...waiting...and though unwanted...unbidden...it will stir...open its jaws, and howl. It speaks to us...guides us. Passion rules us all. And we obey. What other choice do we have? Passion is the source of our finest moments. the joy of love...the clarity of hatred...and the ecstasy of grief. It hurts sometimes more than we can bear. If we could live without passion, maybe we'd know some kind of peace. But we would be hollow. Empty rooms, shuttered and dank. Without passion, we'd truly be dead." 
- Angelus (2x17 - Passion)

"Bottom line is, even if you see them coming, you're not ready for the big moments. No one asks for their life to change, not really. But it does. So, what are we, helpless? Puppets? Nah. The big moments are gonna come, you can't help that. It's what you do afterwards that counts. That's when you find out who you are." 
- Whistler (2x21 - Becoming Part One)

Buffy: "Open your eyes, Mom. What do you think has been going on for the past two years? The fights, the weird occurrences. How many times have you washed blood out of my clothing, and you still haven't figured it out?!"
Joyce: "Well, it stops now!"
Buffy: "No, it doesn't stop. It never stops. Do-do you think I chose to be like this? Do you have any idea how lonely it is? How dangerous? I would love to be upstairs watching TV or gossiping about boys or, god, even studying! But I have to save the world. Again." 
(2x22 - Becoming Part Two)

Season 3

Buffy: "Angel was cured."
Giles: "I'm sorry?"
Buffy: "When I killed him, Angel was cured. [to Willow] Your spell worked at the last minute, Will. I was about to take him out, and, um, something went through him, and he was Angel again. He-he didn't remember anything that he'd done. He just held me. Um, but i-it was, it was too late, and I, I had to. So I-I told him that I loved him, I kissed him, and I killed him." 
(3x03 - Faith, Hope and Trick)

"You're not friends. You'll never be friends. You'll be in love till it kills you both. You'll fight and you'll shag and you'll hate each other till it makes you quiver, but you'll never be friends. Love isn't brains, children, it's blood. Blood screaming inside you to work its will. I may be love's bitch, but at least I'm man enough to admit it." 
- Spike (3x08 - Lovers Walk)

Angel: "I can't do it again Buffy. I can't become a killer."
Buffy: "Then fight it."
Angel: "It's too hard."
Buffy: "Angel please, you have to get inside!"
Angel: "It told me to kill you. You were in the dream, you know. It told me to lose my soul in you and become a monster again."
Buffy: "I know what it told you, what does it matter?"
Angel: [yelling] "Because I wanted to! Because I want you so badly! I want to take comfort in you. And I know it will cost me my soul, and a part of me doesn't care. I'm weak. It's not the demon that needs killing in me, Buffy. It's the man. [they fight and he throws her on the ground. He takes her by the arms, shaking her] Am I a thing worth saving, huh? Am I a righteous man? The world wants me gone!"
Buffy: "What about me? I love you so much, and I tried to make you go away. I killed you and it didn't help. And I hate it! I hate that it's so hard... and that you can hurt me so much. I know everything that you did, because you did it to me. Oh, God! I wish that I wished you dead. I don't. [whispers] I can't."
Angel: "Buffy, please. Just this once, let me be strong."
Buffy: "Strong is fighting! It's hard, and it's painful, and it's every day. It's what we have to do. And we can do it together. But if you're too much of a coward for that, then burn. If I can't convince you that you belong in this world, then I don't know what can. But do not expect me to watch. And don't expect me to mourn for you, because ..." [Snow falls, blocking the sunlight.]

(3x10 - Amends

Faith: "I missed the mark last night and I'm sorry about the guy, I really am! But it happens! Anyways, how many people do you think we've saved by now? Thousands? And didn't you stop the world from ending? Because in my book, that puts you and me in the plus column."
Buffy: "We help people! It doesn't mean we can do whatever we want."
Faith: "Why not? The guy I offed was no Gandhi. I mean, we just saw he was mixed up in dirty dealings."
Buffy: "Maybe, but what if he was coming to us for help?"
Faith: "What if he was? You're still not seeing the big picture, B. Something made us different. We're warriors. We're built to kill."
Buffy: "To kill demons! But it does not mean that we get to pass judgment on people like we're better than everybody else!"
(3x15 - Consequences)

[Buffy finds Jonathan in the clock tower with a rifle.] 
Jonathan: "Go away!"
Buffy: "Never gonna happen."
Jonathan: "You think I won't use this?"
Buffy: "I don't know, Jonathan. I just –"
Jonathan: "Stop doing that! 
Buffy: "Doing what?"
Jonathan: "Stop saying my name like we're friends! We're not friends! You all think I'm an idiot! A short idiot!"
Buffy: "I don't. I don't think about you much at all. Nobody here really does. Bugs you, doesn't it? You have all this pain and all these feelings, and nobody's really paying attention?"
Jonathan: "You think I just want attention?"
Buffy: "No. I think you're up in the clock tower with a high-powered rifle because you wanna blend in. Believe it or not, Jonathan, I understand about the pain."
Jonathan [bitterly]: "Oh, right! Because the burden of being beautiful and athletic, that's a crippler!"
Buffy: "You know what? I was wrong. You are an idiot. My life happens to, on occasion, suck beyond the telling of it. Sometimes more than I can handle. And it's not just mine. Every single person down there is ignoring your pain because they're too busy with their own. The beautiful ones. The popular ones. The guys that pick on you. Everyone. If you could hear what they were feeling. The loneliness. The confusion. It looks quiet down there. It's not. It's deafening..."
(3x18 - Earshot)

Jonathan: "This is actually a new category. First time ever. I guess there were a lot of write-in ballots, and, um, well, the prom committee asked me to read this... We're not good friends. Most of us never found the time to get to know you, but that doesn't mean we haven't noticed you. We don't talk about it much, but it's no secret that Sunnydale High isn't really like other high schools. A lot of weird stuff happens here."
Crowd outbursts: "Zombies! . . . Hyena people! . . . Snyder!" [laughter] 
Jonathan: "But whenever there was a problem or something creepy happened, you seemed to show up and stop it. Most of the people here have been saved by you, or helped by you at one time or another. We're proud to say that the Class of '99 has the lowest mortality rate of any graduating class in Sunnydale history... [applause from the crowd]... And we know at least part of that is because of you. So the senior class offers its thanks, and gives you, uh, this. [produces a glittering, miniature umbrella with a small plaque attached to the shaft] It's from all of us, and it has written here, "Buffy Summers, Class Protector.""
(3x21 - The Prom)

Season 4

Tara: [speaking for The First Slayer] " I have no speech, no name. I live in the action of death. The blood cry, the penetrating wound. I am destruction, absolute, alone." 
(4x22 - Restless)

Tara (speaking for the first Slayer): "The Slayer does not walk in this world." Buffy: "I walk. I talk. I shop. I sneeze. I'm gonna be a fireman when the floods roll back. There's trees in the desert since you moved out, and I don't sleep on a bed of bones." 
(4x22 - Restless

[to Buffy] "You think you know what's to come, what you are. You haven't even begun." 
- Tara (4x22 - Restless)

Season 5

"I've gotta say something, 'cause I don't think I've made it clear. I'm in love with you. Powerfully, painfully in love. The things you do, the way you think, the way you move. I get excited every time I'm about to see you. You make me feel like I've never felt before in my life... like a man. I just thought you might like to know." 
- Xander (5x10 - Into the Woods) 

Buffy: "Because I love you, you're my sister."
Dawn: "No I'm not."
Buffy: "Yes you are. [holds Dawn's hand] It's blood, Summers blood, it's just like mine. It doesn't matter where you came from, or how you got here, you are my sister. There's no way you could annoy me so much if you weren't." 
(5x13 - Blood Ties) 
"But I don't understand! I don't understand how this all happens. How we go through this. I knew her, and then she's— there's just a body, and I don't understand why she just can't get back in it and not be dead... anymore! It's stupid! It's mortal and stupid! And... and Xander's crying and not talking, and... and I was having fruit punch, and I thought, well, Joyce will never have any more fruit punch, ever, and she'll never have eggs, or yawn, or brush her hair, not ever, and no one will explain to me why! [She begins to cry.]" 
 - Anya (5x16 - The Body)
Angel: "I can stay in town as long as you want me."
Buffy: "How's forever? Does forever work for you?"
Buffy: "I'm worried about tomorrow."
Angel: "What's tomorrow?"
Buffy: "That's exactly what I don't know." 
(5x17 - Forever) 

Buffy: "I've been working. I've been busy, because I have to."
Dawn: "No. You've been avoiding me."
Buffy: "I'm not. I have to do these things cause when I stop, then she's really gone. And I'm trying. Dawn, I am really trying to take care of things, but I don't even know what I'm doing. Mom always knew."
Dawn: "Nobody's asking you to be mom."
Buffy: "Well, who's gonna be if I'm not? Huh, Dawn? Have you even thought about that? Who's gonna make things better? Who's gonna take care of us?" 

(5x17 - Forever)

"I look around at this world you're so eager to be a part of and all I see is six billion lunatics looking for the fastest ride out. Who's not crazy? Look around, everyone's drinking, smoking, shooting up, shooting each other, or just plain screwing their brains out 'cause they don't want 'em anymore. I'm crazy? Honey, I'm the original one-eyed chicklet in the kingdom of the blind, 'cause at least I admit the world makes me nuts." 
- Glory (5x21 - The Weight of the World) 

"Dawn, listen to me, listen. I love you. I will always love you. But this is the work that I have to do. Tell Giles... tell Giles I figured it out. And, and I'm okay. And give my love to my friends. You have to take care of them now. You have to take care of each other.You have to be strong. Dawn, the hardest thing in this world-is to live in it. Be brave. Live... for me." 
- Buffy (5x22 - The Gift)

Season 6

"Uh ... I do remember what I said. The promise. To protect her. If I had done that ... even if I didn't make it ... you wouldn't have had to jump. But I want you to know I did save you. Not when it counted, of course, but ... after that. Every night after that. I'd see it all again ... do something different. Faster or more clever, you know? Dozens of times, lots of different ways ... Every night I'd save you." 
- Spike [to Buffy] (6x03 - After Life)

Spike: "Well, I haven't been to a hell dimension just of late, but I do know a thing or two about torment."
Buffy: [looking down] "I was happy." 
[Spike stares at her, confused and shocked] 
Buffy: "Wherever I ... was ... I was happy. At peace. I knew that everyone I cared about was all right. I knew it. Time ... didn't mean anything ... nothing had form ... but I was still me, you know? And I was warm ... and I was loved ... and I was finished. Complete. I don't understand about theology or dimensions, or ... any of it, really ... but I think I was in heaven. And now I'm not. [near tears] I was torn out of there. Pulled out ... by my friends. Everything here is ... hard, and bright, and violent. Everything I feel, everything I touch ... this is hell. Just getting through the next moment, and the one after that ... knowing what I've lost... [pause] They can never know. Never." 
(6x03 - After Life)

Willow: "It was. But I mean, if you could be, you know, plain old Willow or super Willow, who would you be? I guess you don't actually have an option on the whole super thing."
Buffy: "Will, there's nothing wrong with you. You don't need magic to be special."
Willow: "Don't I? I mean, Buffy, who was I? Just... some girl. Tara didn't even know that girl."
Buffy: "You are more than some girl. And Tara wants you to stop. She loves you."
Willow: "We don't know that."
Buffy: "I know that. I promise you."
Willow: "I just... it took me away from myself, I was... free."
Buffy: "I get that. More than you- But it's wrong. People get hurt." 
(6x10 - Wrecked)

"I, Anya, want to marry you, Xander, because... I love you, and I'll always love you. And, before I knew you, I was like a completely different person. N-not even a person, really. And I'd seen what love could do to people, and it was... hurt, and sadness. A-alone was better. And then, suddenly, there was you! And-and you knew me. You saw me. And it was this... thing. You make me feel safe and warm, so, I... get it now. I finally get love, Xander! I really do." 
- Anya (6x16 - Hell's Bells)

"First day of kindergarten. You cried because you broke the yellow crayon, and you were too afraid to tell anyone. You've come pretty far, ending the world, not a terrific notion. But the thing is? Yeah. I love you. I loved crayon-breaky Willow and I love ... scary veiny Willow. So if I'm going out, it's here. If you wanna kill the world? Well, then start with me. I've earned that." 
- Xander (6x22 - Grave)

Season 7

[Convinced he's going mad, Spike is tormented by The First.] 
Spike: "I had a speech... I learned it all... Oh god, she won't understand, she won't understand... "
The First [as Warren]: "Of course she won't understand, Sparky. I'm beyond her understanding. She's a girl! With sugar, and spice, and everything... useless. Unless you're baking. I'm more than that. More than flesh... "
The First [as Glory]: "... more than blood... I'm... you know, I honestly don't think there's a human word fabulous enough for me. Oh, my name will be on everyone's lips. Assuming their lips haven't been torn off. But not just yet. That's all right, though. ... "
The First [as Adam]: "... I can be patient. Everything is well within parameters. She's exactly where I want her to be. And so are you, Number 17. You're right where you belong."
The First [as Mayor Wilkins]: "So, what'd you think? You'd get your soul back, and everything'd be jim-dandy? A soul's slippier than a greased weasel! Why do you think I sold mine? Well, you probably thought that you'd be your own man, and I respect that. But you..." 
The First [as Drusilla]: "...never will. You'll always be mine. You'll always be in the dark with me... singing our little song. You like our little songs, don't you? You've always liked them. Right from the beginning. And that's where we're going, ... "
The First [as the Master]: "... right back to the beginning! Not the Bang. Not the Word. The true beginning. The next few months are going to be quite a ride, and I think we're all going to learn something about ourselves in the process. You'll learn you're a pathetic schmuck, if it hasn't sunk in already. Look at you, trying to do what's right - just like her. You still don't get it. It's not about right. Not about wrong."
The First [as Buffy]: "It's about power." 
(7x01 - Lessons)

"Why does a man do what he musn't? For her. To be hers. To be the kind of man who would nev... To be a kind of man. And she shall look on him with forgiveness... and everybody will forgive and love. And he will be loved. So everything's okay, right? C-can we rest now? Buffy? Can we rest?" 
- Spike (7x02 - Beneath You)

Giles: "I'm not sure. The First predates everything we've ever known. Or can know. It's everywhere, it's pure. I don't know if we can fight it."
Buffy: "You're right. We don't know how to fight it. We don't know when it'll come. [We] can't run, can't hide... can't pretend it's not the end 'cause it is. Something has always... been there to try and destroy the world. We've... beaten them back, but we're not dealing with them anymore. We're dealing with the reason they exist. Evil. The strongest. The First." 
Giles: "Buffy, I, um... I-I know you're... you're tired..." 
Buffy: "I'm beyond tired. I'm beyond scared. [near sobbing] I'm standing on the mouth of Hell and it is going to swallow me whole. [hardens] And it'll choke on me. We're not ready? They're not ready. They think we're gonna wait for the end to come, like we always do. I'm done waiting. They want an apocalypse? Well, we'll give 'em one. Anyone else who wants to run, do it now, 'cause we just became an army. We just declared war. From now on, we won't just face our worst fears, we will seek them out. We will find them, and cut out their hearts, one by one, until the First shows itself for what it really is. And I'll kill it myself. There is only one thing on this earth more powerful than evil. And that's us. Any questions?" 
(7x10 - Bring on the Night

"They'll never know how tough it is, Dawnie, to be the one who isn't chosen. To live so near to the spotlight and never step in it. But I know. I see more than anybody realizes because nobody's watching me. I saw you last night. I see you working here today. You're not special. You're extraordinary." 
- Xander (7x12 - Potential)

"You listen to me. I've been alive a bit longer than you, and dead a lot longer than that. I've seen things you couldn't imagine, and done things I prefer you didn't. I don't exactly have a reputation for being a thinker. I follow my blood, which doesn't exactly rush in the direction of my brain. So I make a lot of mistakes, a lot of wrong bloody calls. A hundred plus years, and there's only one thing I've ever been sure of: you. [Buffy looks away; he reaches toward her face] Hey, look at me. I'm not asking you for anything. When I say, "I love you," it's not because I want you or because I can't have you. It has nothing to do with me. I love what you are, what you do, how you try. I've seen your kindness and your strength. I've seen the best and the worst of you. And I understand with perfect clarity exactly what you are. You're a hell of a woman. You're the one, Buffy."
- Spike (2x20 - Touched)

"They have no purpose that unites them, so they just drift around, blundering through life until they die, which they-they know is coming, yet every single one of them is surprised when it happens to them. They're incapable of thinking about what they want beyond the moment. They kill each other, which is clearly insane... and yet here's the thing. When it's something that really matters, they fight. I mean, they're lame morons for fighting, but they do! They never... they never quit. So I guess I'll keep fighting too." 
- Anya (2x21 End of Days)

Buffy: "So here's the part where you make a choice. What if you could have that power, now? In every generation, one Slayer is born, because a bunch of men who died thousands of years ago made up that rule. They were powerful men. [points to Willow] This woman... is more powerful than all of them combined. [Willow whimpers] So I say we change the rule. I say my power... should be our power. Tomorrow, Willow will use the essence of the Scythe to change our destiny. From now on, every girl in the world who might be a Slayer, will be a Slayer. Every girl who could have the power, will have the power, can stand up, will stand up. Slayers... every one of us. Make your choice. Are you ready to be strong?" 
- Buffy (2x22 - Chosen)
