  • Worst/Cheesiest one-liners on the show.

    There are some really bad and cheesy one-liners on the show that just don't hit the mark. I was wondering if anyone has a particular one they can remember.

    For me it's Angel saying "We're about to make history... end." I laugh every time at how bad that line is.
    We Find. You Slay. We'll Party.

    Cheesy lines combined with over acting usually come from the romance for me. The biggest "eek! Cringe!" moments for me are;

    BUFFY: No, when you kiss me I want to die

    SPIKE: I'm drowning in you Summers, I'm drowning in you

    SPIKE: It wasn't for you! I wanted something. Anything to make these feelings stop.I just wanted it to stop!


    CORDY: I'm in love... with Angel!

    They all just make me cringe.. it's just gah, horrible over acting.. no one speaks like that.. I actually don't think any of them are horrible lines really, except for the "drowning in you Summers" it's just the actors all got too carried away in their delivery for me.

        "When you kiss me I want to die" is undoubtedly the worst. Angel's "Why you ridin' me?!" from When She Was Bad makes me cringe, too, as does Spike's "You're a hell of a woman" from Touched.

          OMG! I agree that was so AWFUL!!

          I know there are lots of cheasy lines in the show, I can't really remember right now. But the romantic scenes between actors are usually the ones filled with chease. Gotta watch me some angsty Buffy/insert boyfriend scenes.

            That one always makes me think Angel must have really bad breath.

              Nothing can beat;

              "When you kiss me I want to die."

              But to be honest, a lot of the speeches in BtVS are cheesy. Especially the peptalk-y ones.



              If Ats is also okay;

              Of course that line by Cordelia that is already posted. But also in "You're Welcome" when Angel fights Lindsay;

              "I'm Angel, I beat the bad guys."

              and what about;

              ANGEL
              Good. Guys...

              WESLEY
              You don't have to say it.

              ANGEL

                A lot of you have hit many of mine

                "When I kiss you I want to die." Ugh, even that is to much for me and I LOVE me some Bangel melodrama

                "I'm Angel...I beat the bad guys." That is suppose to be the bad ass moment of that episode?

                But for me nothing in the verse made me contort as much as
                "I'm in love...with Angel."

                Geez my mind is blanking right now...I know there are so many more

                  Ohh, Nina, thanks for reminding me of A Hole in the World!

                  Spike: Not this girl. Not this day.

                  GAG.

                  Fred: My boys. I walk with heroes. Think about that. [...] Superhero. And this is my power: to not let them take me. Not me.

                  DOUBLE-GAG.

                    Yech! Those lines in A Hole in the World only get worse and worse with each viewing.

                    Charisma's delivery of "I'm in love...with Angel!" is the worst in my memory I think. At least in the other ones mentioned, the line was already cheesy from the script. She *made* that line terrible with her shockingly unconvincing delivery. It doesn't help that they tried so hard to force Cangel in Season 3 though.

                    One that hasn't been mentioned yet..

                      I thought that was supposed to be cheesy, for a laugh. As in, Angel is trying to say "nyer nyer nyer" in a goofy way.

                        Really, there were never so many evil cheesy lines in one episode.

                          I quite liked that scene in the episode actually with Spike and that vampire fighting to the music, but I agree that line is just so... bad.

                          I always interpreted it as Angel trying to looking tough in front of Cordelia, like he was showing off.

                          Anyway one that I'm surprised hasn't been submitted to the pot yet:

                          Wesley: I love you.
                          Fred/Illyria: I love you. My love. Oh, my love.
                          - Not Fade Away

                          I know it's meant to be a really heartfelt moment and I know some people are gonna disagree, but I just think that is one hell of a bad line. There's nothing wrong with Amy Acker's delivery of it, but it just seems really out of character for me, even if the character is dead.

I make it through this, and the next thing, and the next thing, and maybe one day I turn around and realize I'm ready. I'm cookies. And then, you know, if I want someone to eat— (eyes go wide as she catches herself) or enjoy warm, delicious cookie me, then...that's fine. That'll be then. When I'm done.

                                God the one that is the worst for me - EVER - is "Why you riding me?" - the line is bad, the delivery is bad. It's just all very, very bad.

                                "I'm drowning in you Summers, I'm drowning in you." That's such a close second. Especially when it comes after, "You're in my gut....my throat..." Ew!

                                Then, in addition to "I'm in love - with Angel!" (which was dumb for so many reasons, not the least of which was that she was having a vision which should have told her she should be trying to STOP it, but whatever...) there's this little gem:

                                "Kyerumption. It's when two great heroes meet on the field of battle and recognize their mutual fate. It's also a kind of grog made out of the ox dung but that's archaic."


                                KILL ME NOW. LMAO.

                                Between Fred and Gunn, the one that makes me shudder...

                                "Pancake kiss!"

                                There are so many more....have to think on this. LOL! What fun!

                                  I found the cookie dough funny, to be honest. It's silly and cheesy, yes, but it's very comical in the serious situation, and Angel's reaction to it is amusing.

                                  Matt, about that line Illyria delivers when impersonating Fred... well, it makes sense for it to be not exactly in character fro Fred, since it's Illyria pretending to be Fred for Wesley's sake... or did I get you wrong?

                                    The absolute worst line on the show has to be "Why you riding me?". I just can not stand the line and the way it delivered. I watched when she was bad last night and it made me remember how much it bothered me lol. It doens't sound like something he would say so it was out of character.

                                    Oh and I hate when Rona says "Ding dong, the witch is dead." It upsets me..well most of the lines that come out of Rona's mouth I hate. I think its because she thinks she's so tough lol.
                                    Oz: Hey.
                                    Oz: That girl. Who is she?
                                    Devon: She's an exchange student. I think she's from South America.
                                    Oz: No, not her. The Eskimo!

                                      I so have to disagree with this. Honestly, this and the recall in Angel was priceless. It fits so perfectly with Buffy's character. Silly, yes, but not cheesy. I loved the cookie dough speech.
