It doesn’t matter what kinda ‘vibe’ you get off a person, cause nine times outta ten, the face their showin’ you is not the real one.
[A]ll forgiveness is a gift to yourself.
Look, I have to go identify our dead father’s body. I’m sorry you’re having a bad drug experience, but deal with it.
Art is to console those who are broken by life.
I’m just saying you only get one life. There’s no God, no rules, no judgments, except for those you accept or create for yourself. And once it’s over, it’s over. Dreamless sleep forever and ever. So why not be happy while you’re here. Really. Why not?
In a lot of ways, Buffy’s relationship with Spike is the most normal relationship she has ever had. There are no secrets between them. When she first met Angel, he kept his vampire identity a secret. And it wasn’t until it was too late that she found out all the details of the spell. Parker posed as a nice guy, but was just looking for another notch on his bed post. Riley turned out to be part of an experiment and half brother to a cyborg monster. Each of these lovers turned into something Buffy definitely did not want. But Spike is what he appears to be. Buffy knows all his failings and if he has any surprises, they are positive ones. It’s interesting that this is the hardest relationship for Buffy to commit to while at the same time being the most honest and open of her relationships. She deceives her friends, but she and Spike do not deceive each other.
