Buffy: I don’t really know how to say this… but it’s a little like having Mom back.
Giles: In this scenario, I am your mother?
Buffy: Wanna be my shiftless absentee father?
Giles: Is there some sort of, um, rakish uncle?
Buffy: I’m just saying… Thank you. So much.

The First: Of course she won’t understand, Sparky. I’m beyond her understanding. She’s a girl! With sugar and spice and everything…useless unless you’re baking. I’m more than that. More than flesh.
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 all right, though.
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.
So what’d you think, you’d get your soul back and everything would be jim dandy? A soul’s slipperier than a greased weasel. Why do you think I sold mine? Well, you probably thought that you’d be your own man. And I respect that.
But 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.
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…tried to do what’s right. Just like her. You still don’t get it. It’s not about right. Not about wrong.
It’s about power.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer 7.01 - “Lessons”
We did this quick insert scene - it was just a shot of me looking at James’ [Marsters] chip, him lying flat on a table in my lair and me running this little phaser over his head,” Adam recalls. “Every time we’d do it, the director would go ‘Action,’ and James would inhale really deep. Then we’d do the scene, and he’d go, ‘Ahhhhhh.’ Finally they got it, and I’m like, ‘Dude, what are you doing?’ He’s sitting there with his legs on the table, and he pats me on the back, hops off the table and goes, ‘Vampires don’t breathe, chap.’ I said, ‘It’s a dark, dark world you live in, James. It’s a darker world than I know.’
