“To me, it’s almost the most important shot in the show, because it really shows, you know, the mystery of their relationship. (…) I wanted the audience to fill in the blanks. (…) I love that elliptical nature of their last night together. I think there should be work for the viewer to do in that sense, emotionally, because I think that makes it more textured, and that shot of the two of them looking at each other I just find beautiful.” ~Joss Whedon
I can’t overstate the brilliance of this show. Everything about it flows together in such beautiful and philosophically mesmerizing ways, that I’m constantly left astounded. Six Feet Under; utter perfection.
“I had a wonderful experience with Buffy, and I was just lucky to be the one to get to play Tara and to kind of knock those walls down… to be the first long-term lesbian relationship on network television. It was an honor”. - Amber Benson 
“I think one of my favourite scenes was the one at the end of [Buffy’s] birthday, that two-part story. When [Joyce and Buffy] are sitting on the couch. I thought Joss did something so wonderful in that scene with Joyce being her mother and knowing that something is going on that is very hard for her. Just being there and not asking what it is”.
- Kristine Sutherland 
“We shot the last scene with Buffy and her mom, and I was watching the two shots of Kristine and Sarah, and I thought, Yesterday, I had the rocket launcher, and this is better. They were so good in that, and it looked so beautiful, and it felt so right, and that to me was just… we had everything”.

Well, we’re all wounded. We carry our wounds around with us through life, and eventually they kill us. Things happen that leave a mark in space, in time. In us.
