Spike: [seeing Angel's new lair] It's paradise. Big windows, lovely gardens, it'll be perfect when we want the sunlight to kill us.

Buffy: Impulsive? Do you remember my ex-boyfriend, the vampire? I slept with him, he lost his soul, now my boyfriend's gone forever, and the demon that wears his face is killing my friends. The next impulsive decision I make will involve my choice of dentures.

Willow: Okay, the Angel thing went badly, I'm on board with that, but that's not your fault. And anyways, love isn't always like that. Love can be... nice.

Rupert Giles: To forgive is an act of compassion, Buffy. It's-it's... it's not done because people deserve it. It's done because they need it.

Buffy: No. James destroyed the one person he loved the most in a moment of blind passion. And that's not something you forgive. No matter why he did what he did. And no matter if he knows now that it was wrong and selfish and stupid, it is just something he's gonna have to live with.

Xander: He can't live with it, Buff. He's dead.

[Buffy leaves the room]

Cordelia Chase: Okay. Over-identify much?

Angelus: Fun fact about wasps. They have no taste for the undead. Not that a sting would do me any damage, it's just... tonight's special. I wanted to look my best for you.

Buffy: [possessed by the ghost James] You're the only one. The only person I can talk to.

Angelus: Gosh, Buff. That's really pathetic.

Buffy: [faces him] You can't make me disappear just because you say it's over.

Angelus: Actually... I can. In fact...

[Angelus is possessed by the ghost Grace]

Angelus: I just want you to be able to have some kind of normal life. We can never have that, don't you see?

Buffy: I don't give a damn about a normal life! I'm going crazy not seeing you. I think about you every minute.

Principal Snyder: I'm sure you know why I asked you here.

Buffy: To thank me?

Principal Snyder: That's right. I wanna thank you. What would Sunnydale High do without you around to incite mayhem, chaos and disorder?

Buffy: I don't incite! I stopped that boy from killing his girlfriend. Ask him. Ask the janitor.

Principal Snyder: People can be coerced, Summers. I'm no stranger to conspiracy. I saw JFK. I'm a truth seeker. I've got a missing gun and two confused kids on my hands; pieces of the puzzle. And I'm gonna look at all the pieces carefully and rationally, and I'm gonna keep looking until I know exactly how this is all your fault.

Intercom: [interrupts] Mr. Snyder, Billy Crandle chained himself to the snack machine, again.

Principal Snyder: Pathetic little no-life vegan.

Rupert Giles: Ooh! Sounds like paranormal phenomena.

Willow: A ghost? Cool!

Xander: Oh, no, no, no. No cool. This was no wimpy chain-rattler. This was, 'I'm dead as hell and I'm not gonna take it anymore.'

Rupert Giles: Well, despite the Xander-speak, that's a fairly accurate definition of a poltergeist.

Xander: I defined something? Accurately? Guess I'm done with the book learning!

Buffy: So we have some bad boo on our hands?

Rupert Giles: Yes.

Willow: Well, why is it here? Does it just wanna scare people?

Rupert Giles: Unfortunately he doesn't know exactly what he wants. That's-that's the trouble. See, uh, many times, the spirit is plagued by all manner worldly troubles. Being dead, it has no way to-to-to make its peace. So it-it lashes out, growing ever more confused, ever more angry.

Buffy: So it's the normal teenager... only dead.

Willow: Well, what can we do? Is there any way to stop it?

Rupert Giles: Well, the only tried and true way is to work out what unresolved issues keep it here and-and-and-and, um, resolve them.

Buffy: Fabulous. Now we're Dr. Laura for the deceased.

Rupert Giles: Only if we can find out who the spirit is... or was.

Rupert Giles: Loch Ness Monster?

Buffy: *Locker* monster is what he said.

[last lines]

Drusilla: [Angelus wants to go hunting before sunrise]

[to Spike]

Drusilla: Want to come pet?

Angelus: [Angelus turns back] No can do, Dru. I'm sure he'd be Hell on wheels but we don't have a lot of time. Gotta' travel light.

[Angelus gets in Spike's face]

Angelus: Sorry. Try to have fun without me.

Spike: [after Angelus and Drusilla have left, Spike smiles] Oh, I will.

[suddenly Spike rises from his wheelchair unaided and kicks it away]

Spike: Sooner than you think.

Xander: He killed a person and killed himself. Those are pretty much two of the dumbest things you could do.

Willow: I know, but... Well, don't you feel kind of bad for them?

Buffy: Sure I feel lousy. For her. He's a murderer and he should pay for it.

Willow: With his life?

Buffy: No, he should be doing sixty years in a prison, breaking rocks and making special friends with Roscoe the Weightlifter.

Xander: Yikes. The quality of mercy is not Buffy.

Spike: Well, our old place was just fine till you went and had it burned down.

Angelus: Things change, Spikey. You gotta roll with the punches. Well, actually, you pretty much got that part down, haven't you?

Spike: Very funny, mate.

Angelus: What can I say? I just love to see you smile, buddy.

Spike: [Angelus is furiously washing himself] You might want to let up. They say when you've drawn blood, you've exfoliated.

Angelus: What do you know about it? I'm the one who was friggin' violated. You didn't have this thing in you.

Drusilla: What was it? A demon?

Angelus: Love!

Drusilla: Poor Angel.

Willow: It says a student murdered a teacher on the night of the Sadie Hawkins dance. The rumor was they were having an affair and she tried to break it off. After he killed her, he went into the music room and shot himself.

Xander: Ladies and Gentlemen - we have a ghost.

[Snyder and the police chief survey the school after a massive snake attack]

Bob, Sunnydale Chief of Police: Schoolboy pranks?

Principal Snyder: Never sell.

Bob, Sunnydale Chief of Police: The sewer got backed up?

Principal Snyder: Better, I can probably make that one fly. But this is getting out of hand. People will talk.

Bob, Sunnydale Chief of Police: You'll take care of it.

Principal Snyder: I'm doing everything I can. But you people have to realize...

Passerby: Snyder, what's going on here?

Principal Snyder: [to passerby] Backed-up sewer line. Same thing happened in San Diego just last week.

[the passerby leaves and Sndyer turns back to the police chief]

Principal Snyder: We're on a Hellmouth. Sooner or later, people are gonna figure that out.

Bob, Sunnydale Chief of Police: The city council was told that you could handle this job. If you feel that you can't, perhaps you'd like to take that up with the Mayor.

Principal Snyder: [suddenly frightened] I'll handle it. I will.

Angelus: Fun fact about wasps.

[Cut to Buffy with her back to Angelus]

Angelus: They have no taste for the undead. Not that a sting would do me any damage, it's just... tonight's special. I wanted to look my best for you.

Buffy: You're the only one. The only person I can talk to.

Angelus: Gosh, Buff. That's really pathetic.

Angelus: Actually...

[approaches her]

Angelus: I can. In fact... I just want you to be able to have some kind of normal life. We can never have that, don't you see?

Buffy: I don't give a damn about a normal life! I'm going crazy not seeing you. I think about you every minute.

[He raises his hand to her cheek]

Grace Newman: [Cut to 1955. Grace puts her hand on James' cheek. He looks down sadly] I know. But it's over. It has to be!

[She turns around and starts to leave. He looks up again and starts to chase after her]

Buffy: [Cut to 1998. Buffy chases after Angelus; angrily] Come back here! We're not finished!

[She grabs him by the arm and turns him around to face her]

Buffy: You don't care anymore, is that it?

Angelus: [sobbing] It doesn't matter, it doesn't matter what I feel.

Buffy: Then tell me you don't love me!

James Stanley: [cut to 1955] Say it!

Grace Newman: Is that what you need to hear? Will that help? I don't.

Angelus: [Cut to 1998] don't. Now let me go.

[tries to go]

Buffy: No. A person doesn't just wake up and stop loving somebody!

[Cut to 1955. Grace looks at James. He takes a step back, raises a revolver, pulls the hammer back and aims it at her. Cut to 1998. Angelus looks at the gun and then at Buffy, frightened]

Buffy: Love is forever. I'm not afraid to use it, I swear! If I can't be with you...

Angelus: Oh, my god!

[He turns around and starts running out of the hall toward the balcony. Cut to 1955. Grace runs from the hall]

James Stanley: Don't walk away from me...

Buffy: [Cut to 1998] BITCH!

Buffy: [Angelus runs out of the hall. She runs after him. Cut to 1955. James runs after Grace. Cut to 1998. Angelus barges through the door out onto the balcony] Stop it!

[comes out the door]

Buffy: Stop it! Don't make me!

[He stops next to the balcony railing]

Grace Newman: [Cut to 1955. Grace turns around to face James] You know you don't want to do this. Let's both... just calm down. Now give me the gun.

[holds out her hand]

James Stanley: Don't. Don't do that, damn it!

Buffy: [cut to 1998] Don't talk to me like I'm some stupid...

[the gun goes off. Angelus flinches from the wound. Cut outside the school. Giles and the others hear the gunshot. Willow draws a worried breath. Cut to the balcony. Angelus has his hand clutched to his chest. He pulls it away and sees the blood. He looks up at Buffy. She stares back in open-mouthed shock at what she just did]
