Just humor me while I post a bunch of Buffy quotes.

The BtVS episode "Intervention"--i.e., the one where the Buffybot is introduced--is much better than I remembered. Not only does it have the first genuine and non-spell-induced Buffy/Spike kiss, but the awesome quotes abound! Behold...

Buffy: Weird love is better than no love.

Buffy: So, how's it start?
Giles: I, uh, jump out of the circle, and I jump back in it, and then, um...(sheepishly) I shake my gourd.
Buffy: Oh, I know this ritual. The ancient shamans were next called upon to do the hokey pokey and turn themselves around.
Giles: Go--quest!
(Giles sighs, awkwardly jumps out of the circle, jumps back in, and shakes his gourd.)
Buffy: And that's what it's all about.

Buffybot: Angel's lame. His hair goes straight up, and he's bloody stupid.

Xander: No one is judging you. It's understandable. Spike is strong and mysterious and sort of compact but well-muscled.
Buffy: I am not having sex with Spike! But I'm starting to think that you might be.

Glory: I am a god.
Spike: The god of what, bad home perms? ... Mark my words, the Slayer is going to kick your skanky, lopsided ass back to whatever place would take a cheap, whorish, fashion-victim ex-god like you.

In short, though I originally thought the Buffybot was the lamest, most shark-jumpy idea I'd seen on the show yet and thus didn't appreciate this episode quite like I should have the first time around, I now am quite tickled. Especially since I know they do use the Buffybot in clever ways crucial to the plot later on, so it wasn't a one-joke wonder.
