| 1.01 Welcome to the Hellmouth |
Giles: I-I'm a Watcher, I-I haven't the skill...
Buffy: Oh, come on, stake through the heart, a little sunlight... It's like falling off a log.
Giles: A, a Slayer slays, a Watcher--
Giles: Yes. No! He, he trains her, he, he, he prepares her--
Buffy: Prepares me for what? For getting kicked out of school? For losing all of my friends? For having to spend all of my time fighting for my life and never getting to tell anyone because I might endanger them? Go ahead! Prepare me.
| 2.07 Lie To Me |
Buffy: Does it ever get easy?
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.
| 2.14 Innocence |
Buffy: You must be so disappointed in me.
Giles: No, no, I'm not.
Buffy: But this is all my fault.
Giles: No. I don't believe it is. Do you want me to wag my finger at you and tell you that you acted rashly? You did. A-and I can. I know that you loved him. And... he... has proven more than once that he loved you. You couldn't have known what would happen. The coming months a-are gonna, are gonna be hard... I, I suspect on all of us, but... if it's guilt you're looking for, Buffy, I'm, I'm not your man. All you will get from me is, is my support. And my respect.
| 2.17 Passion |
Giles: Why did you come here? This wasn't your fight!
Buffy: Are you trying to get yourself killed?! You can't leave me. I can't do this alone.
| 3.02 Dead Man's Party |
Giles: Welcome home, Buffy.
| 3.12 Helpless |
Quentin: Your affection for your charge has rendered you incapable of clear and impartial judgment. You have a father's love for the child, and that is useless to the cause. It would be best if you had no further contact with the Slayer.
Giles: I'm not going anywhere.
| 4.01 The Freshman |
Buffy: This is a bad time.
Giles: You keep saying that.
Buffy: Well it looks pretty bad! I think someone had just a little too much free time on their hands.
Giles: I'm not supposed to have a private life?
Buffy: No! 'Cause you're very, very old, and it's gross.
Giles: Well, before I succumb to the ravages of age, why don't you tell me what brings you here.
Giles: I still don't see where I fit in. You haven't described anything that you can't do yourself.
Buffy: Ok, remember before you became Hugh Hefner when you used to be a watcher?
| 4.08 Pangs |
Buffy: Ok. You know what? We need to boil those and put them through the ricer.
Giles: I don't think I have a ricer.
Buffy: You don't have a ricer? What do you mean? How could someone not have a ricer?
Giles: Well, do you have one at home?
Buffy: I don't know. What's a ricer?
| 5.18 Intervention |
Buffy: I don't know. To slay, to kill ... i-it means being hard on the inside. Maybe being the perfect Slayer means being too hard to love at all. I already feel like I can hardly say the words.
Buffy: Giles ... I love you. Love ... love, love, love, love, Giles, it feels strange.
Giles: Well, I shouldn't wonder. How serious are you about this?
Buffy: Ten. I'm serious to the amount of ten.
| 5.20 Spiral |
Buffy: I'm sorry.
Giles: For what?
Buffy: We should have stayed. If we had, none of this would have happened.
Giles: Don't. What you did ... w-was necessary ... what I've always admired.
Buffy: Running away?
Giles: Being able to place ... your heart ... above all else. I'm so proud of you. You've come so far. You're everything a Watcher ... everything I could have hoped for.
| 6.04 Flooded |
Giles: You're alive. You're here. And you're still ...remarkably strong.
Buffy: Huh? Oh. Sorry.
Giles: Willow told me, but I didn't really let myself believe ...
Buffy: I take a little getting used to. I'm still getting used to me.
Giles: It's, uh ... you're ...
Buffy: A miracle?
Giles: Yes. But then, I always thought so.
| 6.05 Life Serial |
Buffy: I don't ... really know how to say this ... but it's a little like having Mom back.
Giles: In this scenario, I am your mother?
Buffy: Wanna be my shiftless absentee father?
Giles: Is there some sort of, um, rakish uncle?
Buffy: I'm just saying ... Thank you. So much.
Buffy: I just ... wanna tell you ... that, um ... this ... makes me feel safe. Knowing you're always gonna be here.
| 6.07 Once More With Feeling |
I wish I could say the right words to lead you through this land
Wish I could play the father and take you by the hand
Wish I could stay
But now I understand
I'm standing in the way
| 6.22 Grave |
Giles: Duct tape?
Buffy: On their mouths. So the demon could eat them...
Giles: Because they were figments.
Buffy: All of it! You, Sunnydale ... And I was just some nutcase in L.A.
Giles: Of course. Why didn't we see it before?
| 7.10 Bring On The Night |
Buffy: You know, I didn't even realize it was December. Maybe when we get home, we should decorate the rubble. Think you'll ever show up for a real visit? The kind where the world isn't about to end?
Giles: If we survive this, I promise.
Buffy: Good. 'Cause I miss you.
Giles: I miss you too.
You know the drill people, no reposting of this anywhere (like tumblr for example). Thanks. :)
