The Gift Quotes
Buffy: "Hey, what's going on?"
Kid: "Help me! Call the police!"
Vamp: "Get outta here, girl."
Buffy: "You guys havin' a fight? 'Cause, you know, fighting's not cool."
Kid: "Get out of here!"
Vamp: "No. No, she wants to stay. I don't mind a little appetizer."
Buffy: "Have you ever heard the expression, 'biting off more than you can chew'? Okay. Um... how about the expression, 'vampire slayer'?"
Vamp: "What the hell you talkin' about?"
Buffy: "Wow. Never heard that one. Okay. How about, 'Oh god, my leg, my leg'?"
Vamp: "Oh god! My leg! Uhh..."
Buffy: "See? Now we're communicating."
Kid: "H-how'd you do that?"
Buffy: "It's what I do."
Kid: "But you're... you're just a girl."
Buffy: "That's what I keep saying."
Giles: "The key was... living energy. It needed to be channeled, poured into a specific place at a specific time.
The energy... would flow into that spot, the walls between the dimensions break down. It stops, the energy's used
up, the walls come back up. Glory uses that time to get back into her own dimension, not caring that all manner of
hell will be unleashed on earth in the meantime. "
Anya: "Um, but only for a little while, right? The walls come back up, uh, n-no more hell?"
Willow: "That's only if the energy is stopped. And now the key is human... is Dawn."
Giles: "'The blood flows, the gates will open. The gates will close when it flows no more.'
When Dawn is dead."
Xander: "Why blood? Why Dawn's blood? I mean, why couldn't it be like a, a lymph ritual?"
Spike: "'Cause it's always got to be blood."
Xander: "We're not actually discussing dinner right now."
Spike: "Blood is life, lackbrain. Why do you think we eat it? It's what keeps you going. Makes you warm. Makes
you hard. Makes you other than dead. Course it's her blood."
Buffy: Pretty simple math here. We stop Glory before she can start the ritual. We still have a couple of hours,
Giles: "If my calculations are right. But Buffy-"
Buffy: "I don't wanna hear it."
Giles: "I understand that-"
Buffy: "No! No, you don't understand. We are not talking about this."
Giles: "Yes, we bloody well are! If Glory begins the ritual... if we can't stop her..."
Buffy: "Come on. Say it. We're bloody well talking about this. Tell me to kill my sister."
Giles: "She's not your sister."
Buffy: "No. She's not. She's more than that. She's me. The monks made her out of me. I hold her...
and I feel closer to her than... It's not just the memories they built. It's physical. Dawn... is a
part of me. The only part that I-"
Willow: "We'll solve this. We will. Don't have another coma, okay?"
Giles: "If the ritual starts, then every living creature in this and every other dimension imaginable will
suffer unbearable torment and death... including Dawn."
Buffy: "Then the last thing she'll see is me protecting her."
Giles: "You'll fail. You'll die. We all will."
Buffy: "I'm sorry. I love you all... but I'm sorry."
Anya: "Okay. All in favor of stopping Glory before the ritual. Suggestions, ideas?
Spike: "Uh... when you say you love us all..."
Xander/Giles: "Shut up."
Willow: "We don't have to kill her. Uh, we just have to stop her from doing the ritual. I mean, there's only the
one time that she can do it, right?"
Spike: "Yeah. We get her on the ropes, we just gotta keep her occupied till it's too late."
Anya: "Okay. But I'm still not hearing enough ideas. She's a god. Let's think outside the box."
Spike: "Why don't you go think outside the bleeding box."
Giles: "Yes, Anya, apart from your incredibly uninfectious enthusiasm, have you anything else to contribu-"
Anya: "The Dagon sphere!"
Anya: "When Buffy first met Glory, she found that magical... glowy sphere that was meant to repel
Glory. We've got it in the basement. It might drive her away or hurt her. Ooh!
And Olaf the troll god's enchanted hammer. You wanna fight a god, use the weapon of a god."
Spike: "Uh, nah, that thing's too heavy to- Yeah. Good."
Buffy: "I like this. Thanks."
Anya: "Here to help. Wanna live."
Xander: "Smart chicks are soooo hot."
Willow: "You couldn't have figured that out in tenth grade?"
Ben: "They, uh... said you have to put this on... for the ceremony."
Dawn: "What if I don't?"
Ben: "Come on, just-"
Dawn: "What if I don't like the color?"
Ben: "Look, I... I wish there was another way."
Dawn: "And I wish you'd fall on your head and drown in your own barf, so... I guess we're both
Ben: "I think... it'll be quick."
Minion: "Actually, sir, the bleeding is quite a slow process to give the portal time to-"
Ben: "Thank you... for the information. I'll do what I can to-"
Dawn: "Change. Be her. I don't wanna look at you."
Glory: "So, what's the hubbub, bub? What do you got against old Benjy?"
Dawn: "He's a monster. At least you're up-front about it."
Glory: "Don't be so hard on the boy. He just wants to live. Most guys would
do the same. Besides, he's probably the reason your sis and her little cartoon pals are still alive. That little nagging
pinch of humanity that makes me go for the hurt instead of the kill. Lowering myself to trade
blows with the Slayer when I should have just put my fist through her heart. It's gotta be Ben."
Dawn: "Or maybe you just can't take her."
Giles: "I imagine you hate me right now. I love Dawn."
Buffy: "I know."
Giles: "But I've sworn to protect this sorry world, and sometimes that means saying and doing... what other
people can't. What they shouldn't have to."
Buffy: "You try and hurt her, and you know I'll stop you."
Giles: "I know."
Buffy: "This is how many apocalypses for us now?"
Giles: "Oh, uh, well... six, at least. Feels like a hundred."
Buffy: "I've always stopped them. Always won."
Buffy: "I sacrificed Angel to save the world. I loved him so much. But I knew... what
was right. I don't have that any more. I don't understand. I don't know how to live in this
world if these are the choices. If everything just gets stripped away. I don't see the
point. I just wish that... I just wish my mom was here. The spirit guide told me... that death
is my gift. Guess that means a Slayer really is just a killer after all."
Giles: "I think you're wrong about that."
Buffy: "It doesn't matter. If Dawn dies, I'm done with it. I'm quitting."
Xander: "So, are you more, uh... relaxed?"
Xander: "No? I mean, it sounded like you, uh... arrived."
Anya: "No. Yes. Um, I had the pleasure moment, and the blissful calm that comes right
after it. But that only lasted a couple of seconds, and now I'm terrified again."
Xander: "Spike's sex-bot. Why didn't they just melt it down into scrap?"
Anya: "Maybe Willow wanted it."
Xander: "I don't think Willow feels that way about, about Buffy. I mean, I know she's gone
through a lot of changes, but-"
Anya: "To study it."
Xander: "Right. Robotics. Science."
Xander: "Other pervert."
Anya: "God, who, who would put something like that there? Is this supposed to be some sort of sick joke?
I mean, things aren't bad enough! This is an omen."
Xander: "Hey, hey, shh."
Anya: "No, no, it's an omen. It's a higher power, trying to tell me through bunnies that we're all gonna die. Oh god."
Xander: "Anya... you wanna marry me? Can I take that as a 'maybe'?"
Anya: "You're proposing to me!"
Anya: "You're proposing to me 'cause we're gonna die! And you think it's romantic and sexy and, and you know
you're not gonna have to go through with it 'cause the world's gonna end!"
Xander: "I'm proposing to you, Anya, because it's not."
Anya: "You can't know that."
Xander: "I believe it. I think we're gonna get through this. I think I'm gonna live a long... and silly life, and I'm
not interested in doing that without you around."
Anya: "Oh. Okay."
Anya: "Yes. I mean, yes. No."
Anya: "After. Give it to me when the world doesn't end."
Buffy: "Will, what do you got for me?"
Willow: "Some ideas. Well, notions. Or, theories based on wild speculation. Did I
mention I'm not good under pressure?"
Buffy: "I need you, Will. You're my big gun."
Willow: "I'm your - no, I-I was never a gun. Someone else should be the gun. I, I could be a, a
cudgel. Or, or a pointy stick."
Buffy: "You're the strongest person here. You know that, right?"
Willow: "Well... no."
Buffy: "Will, you're the only person that's ever hurt Glory. At all. You're my best shot at getting her on the
ropes, so don't get a jelly belly on me now."
Willow: "Well... I, I... do sort of have this one idea. But, last few days, I've mostly been looking into ways to
help Tara. I-I know that shouldn't be my priority..."
Buffy: "Of course it should."
Willow: "Well, I've been charting their essences. Mapping out. I think... if I can get close enough, I may be
able to reverse what Glory did. Like, take back what she took from Tara. It might weaken Glory, or... make her
less coherent. Or it might make all our heads explode."
Xander: "I'm looking for something in a broadsword."
Spike: "Don't be swingin' that thing near me."
Xander: "Hey, I happen to be-"
Spike: "A glorified bricklayer?"
Xander: "I'm also a swell bowler."
Anya: "Has his own shoes."
Spike: "The gods themselves do tremble."
Buffy: "We're not all gonna make it. You know that."
Spike: "Yeah. Hey. Always knew I'd go down fightin'."
Buffy: "I'm counting on you... to protect her."
Spike: "Till the end of the world. Even if that happens to be tonight."
Buffy: "I'll be a minute."
Spike: "Yeah. I know you'll never love me. I know that I'm a monster. But you treat me
like a man. And that's... Get your stuff, I'll be here."
Buffy: "Everybody knows their jobs. Remember, the ritual starts, we all die. And I'll kill anyone who comes near Dawn."
Spike: "Well, not exactly the St. Crispin's Day speech, was it?"
Giles: "We few... we happy few."
Spike: "We band of buggered."
Tara: "W... Willow?"
Tara: "Willow... I got so lost."
Willow: "I found you. I will always find you."
Glory: "Hey, wow, the Slayer's a robot. Did everybody else know the Slayer was a robot?"
Buffy: "Glory? You're not the brightest god in the heavens, are you?"
Glory: "You lost your hammer, sweet cheeks. What are you gonna hit me with now?"
Buffy: "Whatever's handy."
Xander: "The glorified bricklayer picks up a spare."
Spike: "You don't come near the girl, Doc."
Doc: "I don't smell a soul anywhere on you. Why do you even care?"
Spike: "I made a promise to a lady."
Doc: "Oh? Then I'll send the lady your regrets."
Giles: "Can you move?"
Ben: "Need a... a minute. She could've killed me."
Giles: "No she couldn't. Never. And sooner or later Glory will re-emerge, and... make Buffy pay for that mercy.
And the world with her. Buffy even knows that... and still she couldn't take a human life. She's
a hero, you see. She's not like us."
Dawn: "I'm sorry."
Buffy: "It doesn't matter. What are you doing?"
Dawn: "I have to jump. The energy."
Buffy: "It'll kill you."
Dawn: "I know. Buffy, I know about the ritual. I have to stop it."
Dawn: "I have to. Look at what's happening. Buffy, you have to let me go. Blood starts
it, and until the blood stops flowing, it'll never stop. You know you have to let me. It has
to have the blood."
Dawn: "Buffy... no!"
Buffy: "Dawnie, I have to."
Buffy: "Listen to me. Please, there's not a lot of time, listen."
Buffy: "Dawn, listen to me. Listen. I love you. I will always love you. But this
is the work that I have to do. Tell Giles... tell Giles I figured it out. And, and I'm okay.
And give my love to my friends. You have to take care of them now. You have to take care of
each other. You have to be strong. Dawn, the hardest thing in this world... is to live in it.
Be brave. Live. For me."
