Good title? Do we have a more favorite line around here? The only other one I would put was "Why would anyone want to kiss rocks?," but I like this one better.

So, what is everyone's favorite Buffy quote? Or particular Buffyspeak that you want to talk about?

My favorite Cordelia line is probably her "Tact is just not saying true stuff" speech.

Sorry for the longish title that doesn't exactly fit on one line, and that I accidentally skipped the "do" in :-) Does anyone know how to change thread titles?

My favourite Cordy line is actually from an episode of Angel, so I got nothing on that front.

I love Oz's thoughts in Earshot "We think, therefore she is."

It's no secret that I have a baseball shirt and a extra large coffee mug and a bottle of wine all with the line:

"That'll put marzipan in your pie plate, bingo!"

I love almost everything Oz says, although my favorite is definitely that "Earshot" quote. I also love his ramblings about ice in "Helpless." "It's like water, but not." Hee!

Erratic, a bottle of wine? I've never heard that before.

Can't mention Oz without his animal cracker speech!

"So I'm wondering, do the other cookie animals feel sort of ripped? Like, is the hippo going, "Hey, man, where are my pants? I have my hippo dignity." And you know, the monkey's just, "I mock you with my monkey pants!" And then there's a big coup in the zoo."

I can't eat animal crackers without thinking of this:)

I like this one:

Cordelia: When did you become Martha Stewart?
Buffy: First of all, Martha Stewart knows jack about hand-cut prosciutto.
Xander: I don't believe she slays, either.
Oz: Oh, I hear she can, but she doesn't like to.

Although I guess I"m moving more into group quotes haha

btw LOVE the thread title Jerseygirl

Spike has a lot of great lines, but for some reason, this one always cracks me up:

It's a big rock. I can't wait to tell my friends. They don't have a rock this big.

Mistral - You know, that is possibly my favourite Spike quote!

And my fav Oz line: "We should figure out what kind of deal this is. I mean, is it a gathering, a shindig, or a hootenanny?"

And I have used this recently.

Group quotes are fun, Softcocoa, and they are also *totally* allowed.

Spike is very quotable. I kind of have a major crush on the "What can I tell you, baby? I've always been bad."

Also, my favorite season six quote, as of yet, Buffybot: "If you want her to be exactly, she'll never be exactly, I know, the only really real Buffy is really Buffy, and now she's gone who?"

One of my favorite Xander moments, Lie to Me, although a group effort:

WILLOW: That's Angel.
XANDER: He's Buffy's beau. (sarcastically) Her special friend.
FORD: He's not in school, right? He looks older than her.
XANDER: You're not wrong.

and then a little while later:

ANGEL: Nice to meet you. (shakes Ford's hand)
FORD: Whoa! Cold hands!
XANDER: You're not wrong.

I'm glad the title is loved :-)

"It's like water, but not."

I love that one too,mainly because of the way he says it too.

I like "piffle"

Or putting the word "much" after words, Ex: "Lurk much?"

Why can't I think of more? I know I have tons of them. I've stumped myself.

haha yes Shattered!

This goes along with a 'motivator' I made earlier today:

Anya: I swear, I am just trying to find my necklace.
Willow: Well, did you try looking inside the sofa in hell?

Happy group quotes:

Buffy: I can't believe you got into Oxford!
Willow: It's pretty exciting.
Oz: That's some deep academia there.
Buffy: That's where they make Gileses!
Willow: I know! I can learn, and have scones!

Jenny: You're here again? You kids really dig the library don't you?
Buffy: We're literary.
Xander: To read makes our speaking English good.

And some fun Giles snark:

Buffy: Have I ever let you down?
Giles: Do you want me to answer that, or shall I just glare?

Giles: Alright. I'll just jump into my time machine, go back to the 12th century and ask the vampires to postpone their ancient prophecy for a few days while you take in dinner and a show.
Buffy: Okay, at this point you're abusing sarcasm.

Buffy: See, I told you. Old Reliable.

Willow: Oh, thanks.

Buffy: What?

Willow: 'Old Reliable'? Yeah, great. There's a sexy nickname.

Spike: I know I'm not the first choice for heroics ... and Buffy's tried to kill me more than once. And, I don't fancy a single one of you at all. But... Actually, all that sounds pretty convincing. I wonder if Danger Mouse is on.

This B/G exchange from "Lovers Walk" makes me so happy.

BUFFY: Yeah. She saw these scores, and her head spun around and exploded.
GILES: I-I've been on the Hellmouth too long. That was metaphorical, yes?

I forgot the other Martha Stewart reference I love:

Xander: Anya has a theory. She thinks that Martha Stewart froze that guy.
Anya: Don't be ridiculous. Martha Stewart isn't a demon. (to Buffy) She's a witch.
Xander: Please, she- (pauses) Really?
Anya: Of course. Nobody could do that much decoupage without calling on the powers of darkness.

Though, they might not be the right minions, but I still love it!

My favourite Glory line:

Glory: Wow... the Slayer's a robot! Did everybody else know the Slayer was a robot?

Love the title, JG. But, I admit to being a little confused. Is Ben sub-letting from Glory?

Anyhow, one of my favorite Buffy quotes: Whenever Giles sends me on a mission, he always says 'please'. And afterwards I get a cookie.

Now I'm hungry.

Loandbehold, I don't think he was sub-letting. I mean, Spike must have been stoned during WotW, with all that rambling.

And that scene in "Bad Girls" is one of my favorite season three scenes.
As I've mentioned somewhere recently.

WES: I didn't get this job for my looks, you know.
BUFFY: I really, really believe that.

Also, this is possibly my favorite moment ever.

Because I'm too lazy to retype:

BUFFY: See ... I've had a lot of people talking at me the last few days. Everyone just lining up to tell me how unimportant I am. And I've finally figured out why. (looks Travers in the eye) Power. I have it. They don't. This bothers them.

Buffy moves back to the table, removing her coat.

BUFFY: Glory ... came to my home today.
GILES: (alarmed) Buffy, are you-
BUFFY: (puts her coat on a chair) Just to talk. (resumes pacing) She told me I'm a bug, I'm a flea, she could squash me in a second. (stops, looks at Travers again) Only she didn't. She came into my home, and we talked. We had what in her warped brain probably passes for a civilized conversation. Why? (pauses) Because she needs something from me. Because I have power over her.

Buffy looks around, hands on her hips. She walks the floor, looking from one Watcher to the next as she talks.

BUFFY: You guys didn't come all the way from England to determine whether or not I was good enough to be let back in. You came to beg me to let you back in. To give your jobs, your lives some semblance of meaning.
NIGEL: This is beyond insolence-

Buffy grabs the sword from the table and throws it across the room in a single movement. It flies point-first into the wall directly in front of Nigel's nose. He jumps back looking shocked.

BUFFY: (clears throat) I'm fairly certain I said no interruptions.
XANDER: (whispers) That was excellent!
Willow and Tara grin.

BUFFY: You're Watchers. Without a Slayer, you're pretty much just watchin' Masterpiece Theater. You can't stop Glory. You can't do anything with the information you have except maybe publish it in the "Everyone Thinks We're Insane-O's Home Journal." (Pauses, addresses Travers again) So here's how it's gonna work. You're gonna tell me everything you know. Then you're gonna go away. (resumes pacing) You'll contact me if and when you have any further information about Glory. The magic shop will remain open. Mr. Giles will stay here as my official Watcher, reinstated at full salary...
GILES: (coughing) Retroactive.
BUFFY: ...to be paid retroactively from the month he was fired. I will continue my work with the help of my friends...
WATCHER2: I, uh, I ... don't want a sword thrown at me, but, but, civilians, I - we're talking about children.
BUFFY: (looks up at her friends on the balcony) We're talking about two very powerful witches and a thousand-year-old ex-demon.
ANYA: Willow's a demon?!
PHILIP: The boy? No power there.
BUFFY: The boy has clocked more field time than all of you combined. He's part of the unit.
WILLOW: (whispers to Xander) That's Riley-speak.
XANDER: (whispers back, with a big grin) I've clocked field time.
BUFFY: Now. (addresses the Watchers) You all may be very good at your jobs. The only way we're gonna find out is if you work with me. You can all take your time thinking about that. (turns back to Travers) But I want an answer right now from Quinton, 'cause I think he's understanding me.
TRAVERS: (clears throat) Uh, your terms are acceptable.


I'm just so proud of Buffy here, and Xander is adorable in his proud of himselfy, and "Willow's a demon" and Giles' cough is possibly the best thing ever.

I love this thread - it's like Hangman, but far less work-intensive! I'm sure I'll think of a million more, but for now I'll start with two of my all-time favorite exchanges:

Buffy: Hi. How've you been?
Amy: Rat. You?
Buffy: Dead.
Amy: Oh.

Buffy: A guide but no food or water. So it leads me to the sacred place, and then a week later it leads you to my bleached bones?
Giles: Buffy, please. It takes more than a week to bleach bones.
Buffy: So, how's it start?
Giles: I, uh, jump out of the circle and then jump back in it, and then, um... I shake my gourd.
Buffy: I know this ritual! The ancient shamans were next called upon to do the hokey-pokey and turn themselves around.*
Giles: Go quest.
Giles awkwardly performs the ritual, and they wait for something to happen.
Buffy: And that's what it's all about.


*LOVE!

I love the rat exchange!
Also Amy's "No, that's fair, I was a rat".

XANDER: Got the sucking chest wound swingin'. I promised Anya I'd be there for her big night. Now I'll probably be pushing up daisies, in the sense of being in the ground underneath them and fertilizing the soil with decomposition.

Willow: Oh boy, time for geometry. (Off Xander and Buffy's looks) It's fun if you make it fun.

But perhaps my all-time favorite quote is:

"I'm Buffy. The Vampire Slayer. And you are?"

There are hundreds and hundreds of others, but those are the ones that popped into my head right at this moment.
