Romance of the Buffyverse

In early honor of Valentine's Day, let's compile some romantic quotations from the Buffyverse. These can be funny or sincere.

Couple examples of the funny variety:

"I'm going to find her, wherever she is, tie her up, and torture her till she likes me again." - Spike

Willow (about Buffy): "Guess she's out with Riley. You know what it's like with a spanking new boyfriend."
Anya (re. Xander): "Yes, we've enjoyed spanking."

And at least this one for the sincere:

"I know you'll never love me. I know that I'm a monster. But you treat me like a man, and that's..." - Spike, words failing him for once.

I'll surely be thinking of more over the next few days. Add your own!

Angel: There was one thing about you...
Spike: Really?
Angel: Yeah, I never told anyone about this, but I--I liked your poems.
Spike: You like Barry Manilow.

Hah! I'm giggling just reading that one. Can still see the look of disgust on Spike's face. Ah, the bromance of Spangel.

For Spike quotes, I also recalled:
Buffy: Last night was the most perverse, degrading experience of my life!
Spike: (smiles fondly) Yeah. Me too.

One of my favorites has always been one that's more crush than romance.
Buffy: That was Owen. Isn't he Owenish?
Xander: He does have a certain Owenosity.

Hee! That's so Joss, too, playing with parts of speech. (Josstastic? No, wait--a Whedonism!)

Definitely a Whedonism :-).

Ah, I love Spike. I'm never sure whether I like snarky sweet Spike or snarky evil Spike more. :)

I know--pure fun evil Spike of season 2, in-love-but-evil Spike of seasons 5 & 6, or souled snarky Spike of Angel season 5? So hard to choose!

But I did recall this quote of his as well...

Buffy: Last night was the most perverse, degrading experience of my life!
Spike: (smiles fondly) Yeah. Me too.

I like the way the gag goes on in the second example. Willow, later on: "Yep, everybody's getting spanked but me."

Also, I googled for this one just because I remember liking it so much. Copy-and-pasted:

Angel: I watched you and I saw you called. It was a bright afternoon out in front of your school. You walked down the steps and I loved you.
Buffy: Why?
Angel: Cause I could see your heart. You held it out before you for everyone to see, and I worried that it would be bruised or torn. And more than anything in my life I wanted to keep it safe, to warm it with my own.
Buffy: That's beautiful...or taken literally incredibly gross.
Angel: I was just thinking that too.

Haha! That was a great one. I'd forgotten it. I like Angel best when he comes down from his emo place and into his wry/self-deprecating-realism place.

Funny -
Spike: "I never really liked you anyway and...and you have stupid hair."

Sincere -
Cordelia [to Angel]: "...you have the biggest and best heart of anyone I've ever known."

Hehe. Petulant Spike is such fun. ("How's Tall, Dark, and Forehead?")

Ah, and so sad where the Cordy/Angel thing ended up. Why can't Joss ever allow a happy relationship to last? Or even *occur* in some cases?
Feb. 10th, 2010 02:58 am (UTC)
Glad I'm not the only one who liked the Cordy/Angel pairing. *Sigh*
Feb. 10th, 2010 09:51 pm (UTC)
Joss is allergic to healthy relationships. That's all there is to it.

Would have freed up Buffy for Spike so nicely. Hrmf. (In addition to Cordy being so good at keeping Angel in his place.)

In my own personal version of season eight, Angel & Cordelia and Buffy & Spike had a double wedding, and both couples lived happily ever after. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

I'm down with that. Especially after Wolfram & Hart find some type of extreme longevity spells/trinkets to bestow upon Cordy and Buffy.
