Quotes

Spike: It's bollocks, Angel! It's your brand of bollocks from first to last.

Angel: No, you can't ever see the big picture. You can't see any picture!

Spike: I am talking about something primal. Right? Savagery. Brutal animal instinct.

Angel: And that wins out every time with you. You know, the human race has evolved, Spike!

Spike: Oh, into a bunch of namby-pamby, self-analyzing wankers who could never hope to...

Angel: We're bigger. We're smarter. Plus, there's a thing called teamwork, not to mention the superstitious terror of your pure aggressors!

Spike: You just want it to be the way you want it to be.

Angel: It's not about what I want!

Wesley Wyndam-Pryce: Sorry. Is this something we should all be discussing?

Angel: No.

Wesley Wyndam-Pryce: It just sounds a little serious.

Angel: It was mostly... theoretical. We...

Spike: We were just working out a - Look, if cavemen and astronauts got into a fight, who would win?

Wesley Wyndam-Pryce: Ah. You've been yelling at each other for 40 minutes about this.

[pause]

Wesley Wyndam-Pryce: Do the astronauts have weapons?

SpikeAngel: No.

Winifred 'Fred' Burkle: Would you have loved me?

Wesley Wyndam-Pryce: I've loved you since I've known you. No, that's not-I think maybe even before.

Winifred 'Fred' Burkle: I'm so sorry.

Wesley Wyndam-Pryce: No, no, no.

Winifred 'Fred' Burkle: I need you to talk to my parents. Th-they have to know I wasn't scared, th-that it was quick. That I wasn't scared. Oh, God.

Wesley Wyndam-Pryce: You have to fight. You don't have to talk, just concentrate on fighting. Just hold on.

Winifred 'Fred' Burkle: I'm not scared. I'm not scared. I'm not scared. Please, Wesley. Why can't I stay?

Winifred 'Fred' Burkle: [Gunn, Wesley, Spike, Lorne, Angel, and Knox are all around Fred's bed] It's my boys. I haven't had this many big strapping men at my bedside since that night with the Varsity Lacrosse team.

[chuckles]

Winifred 'Fred' Burkle: That was a joke.

Spike: This goes all the way through... to the other side. So I figure, there's a bloke, somewhere around... New Zealand, standing on a bridge like this one, looking back down at us. All the way down. There's a hole in the world. Feels like we ought to have known.

[Fred is dying from a demonic infection]

Knox: Nothing would make me happier than to be the white knight in this situation, and have her look at me the way that... I mean, I don't just care about Fred. I practically worship it.

Charles Gunn: You said "it."

Knox: What?

Charles Gunn: Not "her." You said "I worship *it*."

Knox: [smiles evilly] Oops.

Spike: [after Drogyn has given Spike a look because of his question asking] What's your favorite color? What's your favorite song? Who's the goalkeeper for Manchester United? And how many fingers am I holding up? You wanna kill me. Try. I don't have time for your quirks.

Winifred 'Fred' Burkle: Kind of cool, physiologically. They reproduce by vomiting up crystals that attract and mutate the microbes around them to form eggs.

Wesley Wyndam-Pryce: Are you trying to turn me on?

Charles Gunn: I gotta be straight with you, 'cause this is kinda blowin' my mind.

Wesley Wyndam-Pryce: Tell me.

Charles Gunn: Fred and I are getting' back together! She was so keyed up from last night's fight, she asked me over. We ended up talkin' for hours like old times. Then, all of a sud- I can't even keep this up, 'cause your face is gonna make me weep. Wes, I am so messin' with you.

Lawyer: I'm sorry to interrupt. I just need to know if the Holbein Clan history was here. It was supposed to be faxed to my office.

Wesley Wyndam-Pryce: It can wait.

Lawyer: These guys are really important. I just need... I mean, the whole company can't be working Miss Burkle's case.

Wesley Wyndam-Pryce: Of course.

[nonchalantly pulls a gun out of his desk and shoots the lawyer in the knee]

Wesley Wyndam-Pryce: [to his secretary] Jennifer, please send anyone else who isn't working Miss Burkle's case to me.

[Angel, Spike, and Lorne think Eve had something to do with what's infecting Fred]

Lorne: If I hear one note, one quarter note, that tells me you had any involvement, these two won't even have *time* to kill you.

[Lorne backs away]

Lorne: Oh, and anything by Dianne Warren will also result in your death. Well, except "Rhythm of the Night".

Spike: Harmony just pulled me out of a very promising poker game down in Accounts Receivable, so this better be good. Oh, and, by the way, all the guys down there agree that astronauts don't stand a chance against cavemen, so don't even start.

Winifred 'Fred' Burkle: But that doesn't make any sense.

Lorne: I just call it like I see it.

Winifred 'Fred' Burkle: But the cavemen have fire. That's what they live with in their caves. The astronauts should at least have some sort of weapon.
