Buffy: It's over.
Spike: I've memorized this tune, luv. Think I have the sheet music. Doesn't change what you want.
Buffy: I know that. I do want you. Being with you... makes things... simpler. For a little while.
Spike: I don't call five hours straight a little while.
Buffy: I'm using you. I can't love you. I'm just... being weak, and selfish...
Spike: Really not complaining here.
Buffy: And it's killing me. I have to be strong about this. I'm sorry William.

I'll have MY eggs sunny side up, please
4 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Double Meat Palace claims another victim -- or saves the day -- your choice. The vampire in the graveyard who decides NOT to bite Buffy because she stinks from having worked at the DMP? Funny stuff!!!

Some really UNfunny stuff? 1.) Buffy, the 21 year old vampire slayer, giggling about Riley's "James Bond stuff", when he's in the middle of tracking demons -- something you'd THINK she would take a little more seriously. 2.) Buffy, to Spike: "Tell me you love me. Tell me you want me." (Now let me use you because I'm so insecure about Riley being back and being married to Sam.) But then again...she's Buffy.

Riley returns to Sunnydale with his beautiful wife, Sam, in order to fight demons and capture demon eggs. It causes Buffy to confront some things about herself that she constantly runs from. The problem is...when it comes to the end, and the big climax (no...not that kind of climax)...she runs again. As she's giving her ice queen speech to Spike about how she can't love him -- she leaves out the main part -- the WHY part. She can't love him because she can't ALLOW herself to love him -- not because he she doesn't REALLY love him. She remains, hers truly, Buffy.

Oh, and as a total aside...does Buffy wear THE BUTT UGLIEST COATS that have ever been made, or what?!!!
