  • One on one inspirational convo.!

    I want to hear some conversations from one charcter of buffy to another that truly inspired you. A conversation that gave you goosebumps it was so good! Something that made you smile/laugh/cry..ect.!!!!!

    In same time, same place:

    Willow leans forward again, sighing, to begin meditating again.
    BUFFY
    I thought you were too tired.
    WILLOW
    It hurts too much not to try.
    BUFFY
    I'm sorry.
    WILLOW
    It just takes so much strength. I don't have that much.
    BUFFY
    I got so much strength, I'm giving it away.
    WILLOW
    Are you sure?
    BUFFY
    Will it help?
    WILLOW
    Much.
    Buffy sits cross-legged in front of Willow and holds her hands. They meditate together.
    BUFFY
    Good.


    Who are you?:
    Tara: I am, you know.
    Willow: What?
    [Tara turns and looks up at Willow.]
    Tara: Yours.
    [Willow smiles.]


    Prom:
    Jonathan: We have one more award to give out. Is Buffy Summers here tonight? Did she, um...
    The crowd turns and finds her. She looks nervous at the attention.
    Jonathan: This is actually a new category. First time ever. I guess there were a lot of write-in ballots, and, um, the prom committee asked me to read this. "We're not good friends. Most of us never found the time to get to know you, but that doesn't mean we haven't noticed you. We don't talk about it much, but it's no secret that Sunnydale High isn't really like other high schools. A lot of weird stuff happens here."
    Crowd outbursts: Zombies! Hyena people! Snyder! (laughter)
    Jonathan: "But, whenever there was a problem or something creepy happened, you seemed to show up and stop it. Most of the people here have been saved by you, or helped by you at one time or another. We're proud to say that the Class of '99 has the lowest mortality rate of any graduating class in Sunnydale history." (applause from the crowd) "And we know at least part of that is because of you. So the senior class, offers its thanks, and gives you, uh, this."
    Jonathan produces a multicolored, glittering, miniature umbrella with a small metal plaque attached to the shaft.
    Jonathan: It's from all of us, and it has written here, "Buffy Summers, Class Protector."
    The crowd breaks into sustained applause and cheering. Buffy walks to the stage and takes her award.




    And now that I'm on the spot I can't come up with anything but I would love to hear what some of you have to say about some awesome conversing amoung our fav. characters!

    I don't know the speech word for word, but Buffy's monologue in "Bring on the Night" sends chills down my back. The line "I'm standing on the mouth of Hell and it's gonna swallow me hole.... and it'll choke on me." Ah, wonderful! Robert Duncan's score is nothing but perfect - you knew it was the beginning of Buffy's war. And of course, Gellar's delivery is perfect, as usual.

    "Any questions?"

    Sidenote: Unfortunately, it's the only thing I liked about that episode, considering the episode was nothing but exposition, exposition, and an awkward "end" between Buffy and the Turok-Han. But that aside, I still have to give some props to Marti Noxon and/or Douglas Petrie for penning that speech.

      My biggest goosebumps moment in the series is Whistler's voiceover at the end of "Becoming I".
      Bottom line is even if you see
      'em coming, you're not ready
      for the big moments. No one
      asks for their life to change,
      not really. But it does.

      So, what, are we helpless? Puppets?
      No. The big moments are gonna
      come, can't help that. It's what
      you do afterwards that counts.
      That's when you find out who you are.
      I guess it's not a conversation, technically, but Weredog already set a bad example so there.

        Ok one of my favorite Monologes is Xander's from "Potential".
        "Not one of them will ever know, not even Buffy. How much harder it is for the rest of us. Seven years, Dawn. Working with the slayer. Seeing my friends get more and more powerful. A witch. A demon. Hell, I could fit Oz in my shaving kit, but come a full moon, he had a wolfy mojo not to be messed with. Powerful. All of them. And I'm the guy who fixes the windows. They'll never know how tough it is, Dawnie, to be the one who isn't chosen. To live so near to the spotlight and never step in it. But I know. I see more than anybody realizes because nobody's watching me. I saw you last night. I see you working here today. You're not special. You're extraordinary". This kinda makes want to cry everytime I hear it and never loses any of its emotion no matter how many times you watch it at least for me. And The part in "The prom" where buffy breaks down gets me too.

          Oh man I got goosebumps so many times reading this thread! Agree with the Bring On The Night speech definitely. And of course there's Touched!

          I've been alive a bit longer than you, and dead a lot longer than that. I've seen things you couldn't imagine, and done things I prefer you didn't. Don't exactly have a reputation for being a thinker. I follow my blood... which doesn't exactly rush in the direction of my brain. So I make a lot of mistakes. A lot of wrong bloody calls. A hundred-plus years, and there's only one thing I've ever been sure of. You. Hey, look at me. I'm not asking you for anything. When I say I love you, it's not because I want you, or because I can't have you. It has nothing to do with me. I love what you are. What you do. How you try. I've seen your kindness and your strength. I've seen the best and the worst of you, and I understand, with perfect clarity, exactly what you are. You're a hell of a woman. You're the one, Buffy.

            Hey there is no wrong! I guess it doesn't have to be a conversation, it can be a speech!! Last night while I was laying in bed I thought of another!
            Bloodties:
            Buffy and Dawn sitting on the ground together.
            Buffy: Are you okay? Did she hurt you?
            Dawn: Why do you care?
            Buffy: Because I love you. You're my sister.
            Dawn: No I'm not.
            Buffy: Yes you are. (Lifts Dawn's arm, so we can see her arm and hand are still bloody) Look, it's blood. It's Summers blood.

            Buffy presses her hand against the tire-iron wound on her shoulder, wincing a little. She clasps her bloody hand in Dawn's bloody hand.
            Buffy: It's just like mine. It doesn't matter where you came from, or, or how you got here. You are my sister. (pause) There's no way you could annoy me so much if you weren't.

                Several of the best ones (The Prom, Potential) have already been said. But here's another that deserves mention:

                Earshot:

                JONATHAN: Go away.

                BUFFY: Never gonna happen.

                JONATHAN: You think I won't use this?

                BUFFY: I don't know, Jonathan, I'm just --

                JONATHAN: Stop doing that!

                BUFFY: Doing what?

                JONATHAN: Stop saying my name like we're friends. We're not friends. You all think I'm an idiot. A short idiot.

                BUFFY: I don't.

                [His hands tighten on the gun. He's getting angry.]

                BUFFY: I don't think about you much at all. Most people here don't. Bugs you, doesn't it? You've got all this pain, all these feelings and nobody's paying attention.

                JONATHAN: You think I just want attention?

                BUFFY: No, I think you're in the bell tower with a high powered rifle because you want to blend in. Believe it or not, Jonathan, I understand. About the pain.

                JONATHAN: Oh, right. 'Cause the burden of being beautiful and athletic, that's a crippler.

                BUFFY: I'm sorry, I was wrong. You are an idiot.

                [This stops him.]

                BUFFY: My life happens very occasionally to suck beyond the telling of it. More than I can stand sometimes. And not just me. Every single person down there is ignoring your pain because they're way too busy with their own. The beautiful ones, the popular ones, the guys that pick on you... everyone.

                [She comes around to look down at the courtyard. He looks as well, his grip on the gun loosening.]

                BUFFY: If you could hear what they're feeling - the confusion, the loneliness... It looks quiet down there. It's not. It's deafening.

                [They stand side by side for a moment, looking down.]

                BUFFY: You know I could have taken the gun by now.

                JONATHAN: I know.

                BUFFY: (holds out her hand) Rather do it this way.
                Cordially,
                Amuk

                I didn't jump. I took a tiny step, and there conclusions were.

                  Family:

                  MR. MACLAY: You're going to do what's right, Tara. Now, I'm taking you out of here before somebody *does* get killed. (Tara wipes her face on her sleeve) The girl belongs with her family. I hope that's clear to the rest of you.

                  Willow looks anxiously at Tara.
                  BUFFY: (OS) It is.

                  Shot of Buffy narrowing her eyes at Tara.
                  BUFFY: You want her, Mr. Maclay? You can go ahead and take her.

                  Shot of Tara looking sad, as if that's what she expected.

                  Shot of Mr. Maclay nodding in satisfaction.

                  Shot of Buffy whirling around to face Mr. Maclay, putting her hands on her hips.
                  BUFFY: You just gotta go through me.

                  Tara looks up in amazement as hope begins to grow.
                  MR. MACLAY: (OS) What?
                  BUFFY: (OS) You heard me.

                  Shot of Buffy staring him down, looking very tough.
                  BUFFY: You wanna take Tara out of here against her will? You gotta come through me.
                  DAWN: And me!

                  Tara smiles.

                  Dawn walks up to stand beside Buffy. They both give Mr. Maclay the same steely glare.

                  MR. MACLAY: Is this a joke? (steps down one of the stairs) I'm not gonna be threatened by two little girls.
                  DAWN: You don't wanna mess with us.
                  BUFFY: She's a hair-puller.

                  Giles walks up behind them.
                  GILES: And ... (puts on his glasses) you're not just dealing with, uh, two little girls.

                  Tara smiles even more.

                  XANDER: You're dealing with all of us.
                  SPIKE: 'Cept me.
                  XANDER: 'Cept Spike.
                  SPIKE: I don't care what happens.
                  MR. MACLAY: This is insane. You people have no right to interfere with Tara's affairs. *We* ... are her blood kin! Who the hell are you?

                  Shot of Giles, Dawn, Buffy, Willow, Tara, Xander, and Anya all standing together in a group, with Spike in the background.
                  BUFFY: We're family.

                  Tara smiles through tears. She looks at Willow, who smiles back.

                    Here are the two that spring to mind.

                    The first not really sure why, I just always liked it.

                    Xander: Anya, wait.
                    Anya: Xander, please. Just go away.
                    Xander: Whatever's between us - it doesn't matter. You shouldn't be alone in this.
                    Anya: Yes, I should. My whole life, I've just clung to whatever came along.
                    Xander: Well, speaking as a clingee - I kinda didn't mind.
                    Anya: Thanks. For everything. Xander - What if I'm really nobody?
                    Xander: Don't be a dope.
                    Anya: I'm a dope?
                    Xander: Sometimes.
                    Anya: That's a start.

                    And:

                    Xander: Let me tell you something about Buffy. In fact, you should all listen to this.
                    Kennedy: Uh, we kinda were.
                    Xander: I've been through more battles with Buffy than you all can ever imagine. She's stopped everything that's ever come up against her. She's laid down her life—literally—to protect the people around her. This girl has died two times, and she's still standing. You're scared? That's smart. You got questions? You should. But you doubt her motives, you think Buffy's all about the kill, then you take the little bus to battle. I've seen her heart, and this time—not literally. And I'm telling you, right now, she cares more about your lives than you will ever know. You gotta trust her. She's earned it.

                      a few of my favorite goosebumps speeches (not so much inspirational as a lot of my favorites verge towards mwahaha! evil--well, a few of them--but i just love the epic goosebumps):

                      the great evilness and creep factor speeches/dialog:
                      - holland manners' elevator-to-hell speech in reprise. "if there wasn't evil in every single one of them out there, why, they'd all be angels."
                      - angelus' passion monologue.
                      - the mayor's threats to angel (calling buffy his little whore) after angel stops him from smothering buffy at the hospital. one of harry groener's best line deliveries!
                      - lindsey's "you're soaking in it" apocalypse explanation.
                      - angel's ants speech in power play. "i wish it did, but, you know, an ant with the best intentions or the most diabolical schemes is just exactly an ant."
                      - angelus' no friends / no family / nothing left portion in becoming (buffy's retort falls under inspirational).
                      - angelus breaking buffy's heart in innocence. angelus' willow threatening and "your boyfriend's dead..." dialog.
                      - wesley describing to faith how she tortured him and how she has to tap into that part of herself to defeat angelus.
                      - spike's speech about slayers welcoming their ends in fool for love.
                      - angelus' explanation of his "eternal torment" plans for drusilla all the meanwhile that drusilla is ranting about "eyes like needles" and "snake in the woodshed" (rape-related).
                      - both times drusilla does her "run and catch, run and catch, the lamb is caught in the blackberry patch" sing-song. especially the one in lie to me that ends with "what will your mummy say when they find your body?"
                      - angel's pillow-smothering visit to wesley in the hospital in forgiving.
                      - the first morphing into all the big bads in lessons. the master stole the show.

                      inspiration!:
                      - angel's epiphany speech to kate.
                      - angel's deep down speech to connor.
                      - lindsey and angel's "big brass testes" conversation.
                      - angel and bethany chaulk's talk in untouched about how angel sees people (starts with an inspirational tone and ends with an empathetic tone).
                      - angel's last day speech in power play.
                      - spike's love of the world with all of its "happy meals on legs", dog races and manchester united.
                      - whistler's "big moments" monologue.
                      - angel's faux-drunk "it started with a girl" speech.
                      - doyle's hero tape (also falls in the empathy column).

                      major empathy goosebumps:
                      - holtz's loyalty speech to wesley about having to open his son's coffin to see if he was really in it. keith szarabajka's voice is just... wow.
                      - the mayor's edna may speech to buffy and angel in choices.
                      - spike's poor woe me talk with willow about how drusilla left him for the chaos demon and threatening willow with the broken bottle.
                      - buffy's "giles, i'm 16 years old. i don't want to die." rant/dialog in prophecy girl.
                      - connor's peace out monologue to cordy's body in the church.
                      - wesley describing how fred died. "she was shaking in pain and so brave."
                      - lorne's post-fred's death talk about "what the green guy does".
                      - angel's family & friends-killing/gypsy girl/curse/"with a song in my heart" speech in angel and the buffy/drusilla comparison speech in lie to me.
                      - spike's church talk with buffy and god in beneath you.

                        They are not as inspirational, NileQT87, when you don't write it out. The list may be impressive but it has no power behind it, the power of words. Lets fill this thread with all the speeches that have been listed off just below this post. I'll try to find time to watch and then post one tonight before I go to bed.

                          Ah if Nile wrote out every speech she liked her post would be massive, leave her be I think it's fine what she did

                          I really liked Willow's semi speech to Buffy at the end of 'Choices;'

                          Daylight on campus. Buffy is crouched, leaning back against a tree. Willow walks up.


                          Willow: Deep thoughts?


                          Buffy: Deep and meaningful.


                          Willow: As in?


                          Buffy: As in, I'm never getting out of here. I kept thinking if I stopped the Mayor or ... but I was kidding myself. I mean, there is always going to be something. I'm a Sunnydale girl, no other choice.


                          Willow: Must be tough. I mean, here I am, I can do anything I want. I can go to any college in the country, four or five in Europe if I want.


                          Buffy: Please tell me you're going somewhere with this?


                          Willow: No. (hands Buffy a letter) I'm not going anywhere.


                          Buffy: UC Sunnydale?


                          Willow: I will be matriculating with Class of 2003.


                          Buffy: Are you serious?


                          Willow: Say, isn't that where you're going?


                          Buffy hugs her and they tumble onto the ground.


                          Buffy: I can't believe it! Are you serious? Ah, wait, what am I saying? You can't.


                          Willow: What do you mean, I can't?


                          Buffy: I won't let you.


                          Willow: Of the two people here, which is the boss of me?


                          Buffy: There are better schools.


                          Willow: Sunnydale's not bad. A-And I can design my own curriculum.


                          Buffy: Okay, well, there are safer schools. There are safer prisons. I can't let you stay because of me.


                          Willow: Actually, this isn't about you. Although I'm fond, don't get me wrong, of you. The other night, you know, being captured and all, facing off with Faith. Things just, kind of, got clear. I mean, you've been fighting evil here for three years, and I've helped some, and now we're supposed to decide what we want to do with our lives. And I just realized that that's what I want to do. Fight evil, help people. I mean, I-I think it's worth doing. And I don't think you do it because you have to. It's a good fight, Buffy, and I want in.


                          Buffy: I kind of love you.


                          Willow: And, besides, I have a shot at being a bad ass Wiccan, and what better place to learn?


                          Buffy: I feel the need for more sugar than the human body can handle.


                          Willow: Mochas?


                          Buffy: Yes, please. It's weird. You look at something and you think you know exactly what you're seeing, and then you find out it's something else entirely.


                          Willow: Neat, huh?


                          I think it's a really sweet special scene between both of them, one of my fave Buffy/Willow scenes in the show. I love Willow's reasons for staying and her brief but very accurate analysis of Buffy's destiny. Yes she was chosen, but a part of does want to help people, even if she won't always show it to her friends.

                            Beautifully done vampmogs! I agree that is a very intimate conversation that made me smile! This is contagious i keep thinking of new quotes that i love! Here's another!

                            Xander: Buffy, I've gone through some fairly dark times in my life, faced some scary things, among them the kitchen at 'The Fabulous Ladies Night Club.' Let me tell you something, when it's dark and I'm all alone and I'm scared or freaked out or whatever, I always think, 'What would Buffy do?'You're my hero.

                              Willow looks anxiously at Tara.
                              BUFFY: (OS) It is.

                              Shot of Buffy narrowing her eyes at Tara.
                              BUFFY: You want her, Mr. Maclay? You can go ahead and take her.

                              Shot of Tara looking sad, as if that's what she expected.

                              Shot of Mr. Maclay nodding in satisfaction.

                              Shot of Buffy whirling around to face Mr. Maclay, putting her hands on her hips.
                              BUFFY: You just gotta go through me.

                              Tara looks up in amazement as hope begins to grow.
                              MR. MACLAY: (OS) What?
                              BUFFY: (OS) You heard me.

                              Shot of Buffy staring him down, looking very tough.
                              BUFFY: You wanna take Tara out of here against her will? You gotta come through me.
                              DAWN: And me!

                              Tara smiles.

                              Dawn walks up to stand beside Buffy. They both give Mr. Maclay the same steely glare.

                              MR. MACLAY: Is this a joke? (steps down one of the stairs) I'm not gonna be threatened by two little girls.
                              DAWN: You don't wanna mess with us.
                              BUFFY: She's a hair-puller.

                              Giles walks up behind them.
                              GILES: And ... (puts on his glasses) you're not just dealing with, uh, two little girls.

                              Tara smiles even more.

                              XANDER: You're dealing with all of us.
                              SPIKE: 'Cept me.
                              XANDER: 'Cept Spike.
                              SPIKE: I don't care what happens.
                              MR. MACLAY: This is insane. You people have no right to interfere with Tara's affairs. *We* ... are her blood kin! Who the hell are you?

                              Shot of Giles, Dawn, Buffy, Willow, Tara, Xander, and Anya all standing together in a group, with Spike in the background.
                              BUFFY: We're family.

                              Tara smiles through tears. She looks at Willow, who smiles back.
                              I totally agree. Family is the episode I always watch when I've had a really crappy day and I want something to cheer me up...actually, it does that but also kind of depresses me because it's so sweet it makes me cry I actually loved the final dance scene more than the one you wrote above (soooo sweet), but the scene you mentioned is still a classic.

                              Love that episode. So underrated.

                                well, i suppose if you've memorized all the episodes, most people (i'd assume) around here probably know exactly what i'm referring to by those. and as i said, i veer towards a lot of the mwahaha, evil!, champion and empathy-heavy speeches and monologues more than happy, fuzzy inspiration (champion speeches aside).

                                for example, buffy's chosen speech makes me want to barf because i don't believe that's what the action buffy is planning is actually very inspirational. 'misguided' might be more appropriate. it's a not-so-good message in a pretty package, full of touchy-feely power images. season 8 btvs, imo, is backing me up. i think dana on ats was probably what sparked the rethinking of the btvs view of what it actually meant (the ats writers had a tendency to be more fearless about gray-area consequences). what the message is about is as important as how inspirational the wrapping paper is. get it done also shot chosen full of holes.

                                and i would actually say some of the villain speeches were some of the most powerful. holland manners, mayor wilkins, holtz, the first (especially with the mayor, drusilla and the master) and angelus had some of the best speeches/monologues.

                                Mayor: Well, I wish you kids the best, I really do. But if you don't mind a bit of fatherly advice, I, uh, I, I just don't see much of a future for you two. I don't sense a lasting relationship. And not just because I plan to kill you. You two have a bumpy road ahead.
                                Buffy: I don't think we need to talk about this.
                                Mayor: God, you kids, you know. You don't like to think about the future. You don't like to make plans. Unless you want Faith to gut your friend like a sea bass, show a little respect for your elders.
                                Angel: You're not my elder. I've got a lotta years on you.
                                Mayor: Yeah, and that's just one of the things you're going to have to deal with. You're immortal, she's not. It's not easy. I married my Edna May in ought-three and I was with her right until the end. Not a pretty picture. Wrinkled and senile and cursing me for my youth. Wasn't our happiest time. And let's not forget the fact that any moment of true happiness will turn you evil. I mean, come on. What kind of a life can you offer her? I don't see a lot of Sunday picnics in the offing. I see skulking in the shadows, hiding from the sun. She's a blossoming young girl and you want to keep her from the life she should have until it has passed her by. My God! I think that's a little selfish. Is that what you came back from Hell for? Is that your greater purpose?
                                Holtz: Angelus.
                                Wes: No. Angel. He's not Angelus anymore. He's a good man.
                                Holtz: He's not even a man.
                                Wes: Nevertheless, he has a soul now.
                                Holtz: Yes. That he might know the pain that he has inflicted on his countless victims. A brilliant curse, I must admit. Gypsies do have a knack for creative vengeance. Where they fail, however is in the execution of justice. And that I will have.
                                Wes: If it's a sacrifice you require, take me. Angel's no more responsible for the crimes of Angelus than I am.
                                Holtz: Really?
                                Wes: Yes.
                                Holtz: And was it your hands that held down my beloved Caroline as she was violated and murdered? That wrapped themselves around my son's neck and snapped it like kindling? Were yours hands that clutched at my daughter as she was turned into a creature damned for all eternity? Angelus is in his nature. The beast will re-emerge. You've seen it. You know it. And that is why you are here. You're afraid he's going to kill the child. And you're right.
                                Wes: Your infiltration was more successful than I'd realized.
                                Holtz: I don't need prophecies to tell me what is plain. So long as the child remains with the demon, it's not safe.
                                Wes: Well, I must have misunderstood. Here I thought it was a simple blood vendetta, when what you really want is to protect Angel's son.
                                Holtz: You don't believe me.
                                Wes: Hmm. Not sure really. Could be the low scary voice that's giving me trouble.
                                Holtz: It's time to make a decision, Mr. Wyndham-Pryce. My army is strong and will only increase in number. Fight against us and this war will become a bloodbath.
                                Wes: This isn't war. It's revenge.
                                Justine: What's wrong with revenge? It's all some of us have left.
                                Wes: Look. I can't know what it's been like for any of you.
                                Holtz: You might soon enough. When I put my son's body into the ground, I had to open the coffin, just to know that he really was in there. You also may discover that a child's coffin, Mr. Wyndham-Pryce, it weighs nothing.
                                Angel: You're not gonna win.
                                Holland: Well, no. Of course, we aren't. We have no intention of doing anything so prosaic as 'winning'.
                                Angel: Then, why?
                                Holland: Hmm? I'm sorry? Why, what?
                                Angel: Why fight?
                                Holland: That's really the question you should be asking yourself, isn't it? See, for us, there is no fight. Which is why winning doesn't enter into it. We go on, no matter what. Our firm has always been here. In one form or another. The Inquisition. The Khmer Rouge. We were there when the very first cave man clubbed his neighbor. See, we're in the hearts and minds of every single living being. And that, friend, is what's making things so difficult for you. See, the world doesn't work in spite of evil, Angel. It works with us. It works because of us. Welcome to the home office.
                                Angel: This isn't...
                                Holland: Well, you know it is. You know that better than anyone. Things you've seen. Things you've, well, done. You see, if there wasn't evil in every single one of them out there, why, they wouldn't be people. They'd all be angels.
                                Angelus: Passion. It lies in all of us... sleeping... waiting. And though unwanted, unbidden, it will stir, open its jaws and howl. It speaks to us... guides us. Passion rules us all. And we obey. What other choice do we have? It hurts sometimes more than we can bear. If we could live without passion, maybe we'd know some kind of peace. But we would be hollow. Empty rooms, shuttered and dank... Without passion, we'd be truly dead.

                                  That's definitely true. The villains often get a lot of the best speeches - Dark Willow in particular, because she is so close to all the people she's hurting. Her words with Buffy ("you're the one trying to sell me on the world?") and Dawn ("it's time you go back to being a little energy ball...") were two of the best scenes of that entire season.

                                  The First's only power was through words yet it was extremely effective and the "character" of The First got a lot of great dialogue. Everytime the evil entity is on screen what it says is memorable, IMO. Mind you I liked The First as a Big Bad more than most.

                                  "I wanna feel. I wanna wrap my hands around some innocent neck and hear it crack."

                                    I think you might actually one of a select few who likes The first but I will say that The pairing of the First and Caleb I liked for one reason and that was becuz no matter what scene they were in the dialouge was always pretty good IMO between the 2 of them. I liked that We are getting Sidetracked here so back to the original Topic

                                      For some reason the dialogue I remember most is from season 7, but I was reading what was being said before about the First and Caleb and this scene came to me.

                                      Buffy/The First: I envy them. Isn't that the strangest thing?
                                      Caleb: Well, it does throw me a tad. I mean, they're just—why, they're barely more than animals. Feeding off each other's flesh—it's nauseating. But you. You're everywhere. You're in the hearts of little children. You're in the souls of the rich. You're the fire that makes people kill and hate. The fire that will cure the world of weakness. They're just sinners. You are sin.
                                      Buffy/The First: I do enjoy your sermons.
                                      Caleb: And you're in me. Give me strength no man can have.
                                      Buffy/The First: And the only man strong enough to be my vessel, and I know you feel me, but I know why they grab at each other. To feel. I want to feel. I want to wrap my hands around some innocent neck and feel it crack.
                                      Caleb: Amen.

                                      I don't know what it is, but I just love that scene, I think it might be Sarah's delivery, the way she make the character seem like it's brimming with evil. She was so great as an evil person.

                                        I *loved* Willow's speech to Buffy in 'Two to Go' I thought it was fantastic. Though not nearly as bad as season seven, I'm not a huge fan of season six, at least not in comparison to other Buffy seasons. I thought it lost it's way, but the way Willow recites all of Buffy's problems and struggles that year in that speech and the way she says it in such a nasty, and yet completely honest way.. it's just brilliant. One of my favourite scenes of the season as well, I thought it was marvellous.

                                        In regards to the First.. I thought it was a really lame, lame villian that kinda got lamer as it went on. I mean I pretty much rolled my eyes in 'Showtime' when Buffy says "get out" and the First replies with "or what?" I mean.. oh scary it's going to stand around taunting all day BUT it did have a select few good scenes, I really liked its speech to Spike at the end of 'Lessons' that was fantastic;

                                        SPIKE
                                        The thing is...I had a speech. I learned it all. Oh, God. She won't understand, she won't understand.

                                        Warren is circling Spike, addressing him as Spike cowers in the middle of the room.

                                        WARREN
                                        Of course she won't understand, Sparky. I'm beyond her understanding. She's a girl. Sugar and spice and everything...useless unless you're baking. I'm more than that. More than flesh...

                                        Warren morphs into Glory, who is still pacing and talking to Spike.

                                        GLORY
                                        ...more than blood. I'm... you know, I honestly don't think there's a human word fabulous enough for me. Oh, my name will be on everyone's lips, assuming their lips haven't been torn off. But not just yet. That's alright, though...

                                        Glory morphs into Adam. Apparently this monster is something that can change shape and impersonate other characters. The Morphing Monster is still pacing.

                                        MORPHING MONSTER (as ADAM)
                                        ...I can be patient. Everything is well within parameters. She's exactly where I want her to be. And so are you, Number 17. You're right where you belong.

                                        Morphing Monster changes to the Mayor and bends down on one knee to talk to Spike at eye-level.

                                        MORPHING MONSTER (as THE MAYOR)
                                        So what'd you think? You'd get your soul back and everything'd be Jim Dandy? Soul's slipperier than a greased weasel. Why do you think I sold mine? (laughs) Well, you probably thought that you'd be your own man, and I respect that, but...

                                        MORPHING MONSTER (as DRUSILLA)
                                        (touching Spike's face) ...you never will. You'll always be mine. You'll always be in the dark with me, singing our little songs. You like our little songs, don't you? You've always liked them, right from the beginning. And that's where we're going...

                                        MORPHING MONSTER (as THE MASTER)
                                        (stands) ...right back to the beginning. Not the Bang... not the Word... the true beginning. The next few months are going to be quite a ride. And I think we're all going to learn something about ourselves in the process. You'll learn you're a pathetic schmuck, if it hasn't sunk in already. Look at you. Trying to do what's right, just like her. You still don't get it. It's not about right, not about wrong...

                                        Morphing Monster walks around behind Spike, and when it reappears, it has transformed into Buffy. As Buffy, it is standing with arms crossed in front, with a smug and serious look on her face, glaring at Spike.

                                        MORPHING MONSTER (as BUFFY)
                                        ...it's about power.
