Well, the scene that always sticks out for me is that part in the church at the end of Beneath You. Breaks my heart in all the right ways, every time, and James so hit that out of the park. Plus, the lighting was just gorgeous and perfect for the tone of that discussion.

And my favorite ice cream is Ben And Jerry's Chocolate Fudge Brownie.

hmmm...my favorite moment on the show is during Smashed when Buffy pretty much mounts Spike, and that look he gets in his eyes.  It STILL makes my stomach clench when I watch it.

I have too many favorite episodes to name, but "The Gift" was really stunning both visually and emotionally.

Right now my favorite fanfic is Lost In Time by SpikesKat, oh and Three Hearts Entwined by: MrsMuir.  And actually I have about 50 favorite fics bookmarked so it's hard for me to really say, but at this exact moment those are my faves.

I have too many favorite lines on the show to name just one.  And also I have some favorite lines in fanfics that are just as good as the fave lines on the show lol.

Fave Ice Cream: It's called "moose tracks" and sounds wretched but it's lovely.

 Favorite Episode? Ummm....I don't know. I have too many.

Favorite Scene: The fight scene on Destiny(I think thatt's the title), where Spike beats the stuffing out of Angel.

Favorite line: "It's a big rock. I can't wait to tell my
friends. They don't have a rock this big." (Becoming pt1) I have many others that I love just as much but this was the one that I thought of first. =)

Favorite Fan Fic: Rhiannon's "The Line War". It's a Highlander series that crosses over with Forever Knight in a few of the stories. There are prequels and some WIP's sequels. This series will take you a long while to finish.(warning: it contains slash m/m/m, m/m and m/m/f) I found her site a few years ago and have been faithfully checking for updates ever since. She even has a wonderful evil Spike story that involves him and a newly resurrected Kronos. Granted, it's not Spuffy but it's Spike and Kronos! How could I pass that one up! =)

Favorite Spuffy Fan Fic(since I didn't answer it the first time): Ummm way too many to count and a lot of them are on this site. =)

Favorite Ice cream: Chocolate chip cookie dough

episode - School Hard

scene - Dead Things...when Spike crawls into bed behind Buffy. *sigh* if only...

line - I'm insane. What's his excuse? (S7E3 Same Time, Same Place)

fav fic - Origins/Origins Revelations...why else would I beg and whine so hard to beta it LMAO

Ben and Jerry's Wavy Gravy...which sadly isn't made anymore so I make do with the newer Dublin Mudslide


Oct 26 2006 10:18 am   #7Always_jbj

Gah! Much, much, much too difficult to answer! *cries*

Okay I'll try...

Episode: I love them all (or nearly all of them, anyway)... but probably the most watched is 'Once More With Feeling'. (Spike singing *drool*, Sweet! So, so cool, THAT kiss *sigh*)

Scene: The look on Spike's face in 'After Life' when Buffy walks down the stairs and he realises it is her and not the Bot.

Line: "You're not friends. You'll never be friends..." etc

Favourite fanfic: Wow... that is even harder than fave ep. At the moment I would probably say 'My Life Closed Twice'  by Anaross... or maybe 'Future Imperfect' by Cousinjean... or 'Whispers in a Dead Man's Ear'  by AmyB... or... okay I better stop... I could keep going for ages.

Flavour of ice cream: Macadamia

What about you Nia? You have to answer too. lol

Episode?  As hard as it is to pick just one, I have to say Fool For Love.  I always love watching Spike evolve and still finding out the he's still that same love-sick guy at the end.

Scene?  In After Life, from Spike realizing that Buffy is alive to when he is holding her hands on the couch.  The look on his face is just...indescribable.

Line?  It's actually not Spike or Spuffy, but from Giles:  "To forgive is an act of compassion, Buffy.  It's not done because a person deserves it.  It's done because they need it."  One of these days I'm gonna write a post-Grave fic that centers on that theme for Spike and Buffy.

Favorite Fanfic?  *sigh* You would have to ask that, wouldn't you?  Okay, well, the one I always will come back to is Mary's "Journeys" series, no matter if it is ever finished or not.  Other than that, I could probably list about a hundred, but anything written by Holly is usually at the top of my list.

Flavor of ice cream?  Jamocha...mmmmm....

Ooo, Moose Tracks is good...My brother and sister introduced me to that one.

Oct 26 2006 02:00 pm   #10slaymesoftly

Whoa, Nia! It might be too early in the AM for this.  Not to mention, so hard!  These are the kinds of questions that I will no sooner answer, then see someone else's answers and go "Oh, me too!   Me too!"LOL  But I'll try.

Episode:  OMWF - could watch it a gazillion times
Touched - because the one before it almost destroyed me and this made it all right.  Sheesh - see, here's where I'll think of a couple more as soon as I close the laptop.

Scene(s): Oh boy - from Dead Things - the door scene, absolutely - broke my heart; the making love in bed scene; the balcony scene (sexy as hell). From School Hard - "but they make me feel all manly" I watched his hand trail down that body and went "Guh!"  The scene when he sees resurrected Buffy walking down the stairs and then holds her damaged hands; the scene when she finally climbs onto him and unzips his pants (I think that's one of the sexiest things I've ever seen - and the expression on his face is wonderful).  I could go on and on....

Line?  "Out for a walk...bitch"  "I'm drownin' in you"  These are off the top of my head - there could be thousands more. lol

Fan fic? - Oh, I don't know if I can go there without getting into serious trouble...Prophecy and Warmth, My Life Closed Twice, A Legion of True Hearts (ok, maybe this one is my all-time fav - I absolutely love it), Whispers in a Dead Man's Ear...I'll stop there.  

Favorite ice cream? Um, don't really have one.  I've never met a hot fudge sundae that I didn't like. lol  And I used to eat a lot of butter pecan for some reason.  Not really a big ice cream eater, I guess. (unless someone puts hot fudge on it....)

Oct 27 2006 12:10 am   #11spikes_wish

Hmm...

favourite episode: would have to be umm...o this is hard.....can i come back to this one?

Scene: The spike/buffy speech scene in Touched (Spuffy) and the Angel, Spike and Joyce scene if Fool For Love when Spike is mock-attacking Joyce, made me laugh soooo much (non-spuffy)

Line: "Can we rest now?" Spike in Beneath You. "It's a big rock..."etc, Becoming, "I stay up all night thinking about you" "You sleep during the day!" Crush.

Fanfic- too many to count sorry.

Favourite Ice Cream- Ben and Jerrys Phish food.

Oct 27 2006 09:16 am   #12ZoeGrace

I thought of one favorite line from the show...that line where willow says something like: "It was so scary, the blair witch would have had to watch like this." (and then she peeks through her fingers. hehehe.)

If anyone knows what episode that's from...i'd be grateful, i kind of want to make an animated icon.

Oct 27 2006 02:44 pm   #13Coquine

I could be wrong, but I believe it's from Flooded, when Willow is telling Giles about the spell she used to resurrect Buffy.  Y'know, before that awesome speech of his where he calls her a "rank, arrogant amateur!"

Oct 27 2006 06:26 pm   #14spikeslovebite

yup it was from Flooded


Oct 28 2006 12:04 am   #15Niamh

 Episode?

Dead Things, Fool for Love, Lover's Walk, School Hard, Touched

Scene?

"Hello, cutie."  The first time Spike comes to save the day.  The look on Spike's face when Buffy/Faith come on to him in the Bronze.  When Buffy comes down the stairs -- in The Gift and again in Bargaining pt 2; Any scene from DT (especially the door scene and her bedroom scene)  However, my absolutely favorite expression of Spike's is the exasperated one he uses frequently.

Line?

Best line ever:  "Is everyone here very stoned?"

Favorite fanfic?

Augh, I can't answer that.  In no particular order:  Newborn by Addie Logan;  Goodnight, Saigon by Spikeslovebite; Charms of the Clarion by Eurydice; Stranded by BSB; Spikeskat's Alone series. . . . and I know there are more, but I'm . . . gah, I'm drawing a blank and my nose is bleeding again. . .

Flavor of ice cream?

Phish Food.  Pralines & Cream

Oct 28 2006 01:55 am   #16TwilightChild

These are tough questions.  Unfair.  

Episodes: 'Dead things' is definately one, just because I watch scenes from that over and over like a porno...cause let's face it...it's Spike.  'Forever', Smashed (obvious reason), 'Touched'

Favorite Scenes: The scene in the hospital where Spike hit Xander in the back of the head, even though the chip went off.  Every sex scene taken place between Buffy and Spike.  The scene in 'Beneath You' in the church.  Couldn't have been more beautiful if Shakespear had written it.

Favorite quotes: Far, far too many.

Favorite icecream: Strawberry cheesecake swirl.

Oct 29 2006 04:21 am   #17DreamsofSpike

Hmmm....this is definitely a tricky one.....


Favorite episode: I think I'd have to say Fool for Love, even though it's definitely hard to say....even though it's not particularly Spuffy (though the undertones are there and setting the stage for the next season) The Gift is right up there with it...that episode's pretty much flawless...and then there's Once More With Feeling....that was *BRILLIANT!!!!*

Scene -- hmmm...another tough one....the scene where Spike tells Buffy why he loves her in Touched is an incredible one....then there's the "warm champagne" scene in "Who Am I?"...just so hot...there's a lot here, actually...lol...can't choose just one...and Smashed....that whole fight leading up to ... not fighting....scene....

Line -- hmmm...again spike's speech in touched comes to mind...also in "Crush" where he tells Buffy how he feels about her ("drownin' in you, summers") spike had lots of excellent lines, actually even though it may not count 'cause it's from Angel, not Buffy -- i *love* his speech in "In the Dark" at the beginning, his little commentary on Angel "To the Angel-mobile -- away!!" LOL

Favorite Fanfic -- wow, this is such a tough one....I really like so many different ones...actually, can't really answer this one, sorry

ice cream -- depending on my mood, butter pecan, or pure plain chocolate


Oct 29 2006 01:18 pm   #18GoldenBuffy

School Hard, need I say more?

Fool For Love, where Spike acts like he's attacking Joyce with Angel there. And Destiny when Spike kicks Angel's butt.

You know the one, I can't fool myself, and Spike, for some reason. I know not word for word but I'm sleepy.

There's so many fics that I love, Lost in Time, Origins, that's all I can think of right now.

Ben and Jerry's Carmal Sutra, matter of fact I think I'll phone the hubby see if he can bring me some home!

Oct 29 2006 04:54 pm   #19anaunthe

A favorite scene of mine no one has mentioned is when Spike makes the truce with Buffy in season 2.  "He's got your watcher,"  and later sitting with Joyce in the living room. Actually, loved that whole episode.

 Episode? Gah! So many fave eps... I like The Dark Age because we finally get to see a part of Giles that doesn't seem as if he's walking around with a stake up his channel. I also like Once More With Feeling. It was just a really interesting ep and really creative with the idea..that and I finally got what I wanted: for the Scoobies to finally find out the truth about where Buffy really was. I loved The Gift. What she said to Dawn kills me and makes me all teary and then with all of them standing around her body, like a punch to the gut especially with the way Spike is grieving.

Scene? Oh Wow! Umm..a lot of these too so I will just pick one: The early part of Touched, where Spike asks where Buffy is and then goes off on everyone calling them sad, ungrateful traitors and that she's saved their lives again and again... and then he thumps Faith (not that I like her being beat on...I do love me some Faith..but it just shows another side to Spike's feelings for Buffy)

Line? Even though he was referring to Riley (GAG), this is one of the best lines EVER imho AND its a Xander line!

"If he's not the guy, if what he needs from you just isn't there, let him go. Break his heart, and make it a clean break. But if you really think you can love this guy ... I'm talking scary, messy, no-emotions-barred need ... if you're ready for that ... then think about what you're about to lose."

Another fave line was when Faith was in Buffy's body talking to Spike:

"I could have anything. Anyone. Even you, Spike. I could ride you at a gallop until your legs buckled and your eyes rolled up. I've got muscles you've never even dreamed of. I could squeeze you until you pop like warm champagne and you'd beg me to hurt you just a little bit more."

Talk about RAWR!

And last but not least was what Oz says to Willow when she is checking on his hurt arm:

"The monkey's the only cookie animal that gets to wear clothes, you know that? You have the sweetest smile I've ever seen. So, I'm wondering, do the other cookie animals feel sorta ripped? Like, is the hippo going, 'Hey, man, where are *my* pants? I have my hippo dignity!' And you know the monkey's just, (with a French accent) 'I mock you with my monkey pants!' and there's a big coup in the zoo."

I so love how he slipped that smile compliment in there. I sat and was like 'Awwwwww!!!' and got all squee!

Favorite fanfic? I have a lot of fave fics...A LOT...by a lot of different authors. Also anything and everything by always_jbj, spikeskat and talesofspike.

Flavor of ice cream? Ben & Jerry's Phish Food

Nov 05 2006 04:42 pm   #21Spikez_tart

Let's not ask any easy questions, Nia.

Episode?  Fool for love - Spike trying to pretend Buffy has asked him on a date.  Buffy pissing him off.  Spike trying to kiss her after regaling her with what a bad bad guy he is, then when she pulls away, getting embarassed and threatening to kill her (or threatening something).  The great cutting back and forth between Spike swatting at Buffy in the alley and Punk Spike killing Nicki Wood.  And, who could forget William.

Scene?  The scene where Buffy and Spike finally have sex, after beating the crap out of each other - Buffy kisses Spike very tenderly on the cheek.  Like she loves him or something.

Line?  "The bird is dead, Dru.  You didn't feed it ...etc.:"  Too funny

Favorite fanfic?  I won't even try although Sara Aless's story about Master Spike straightening out Buffy's fuzzy thinking with a whip is mighty fine.  In a totally sick and pervy sort of way.

Flavor of ice cream?  Peach or butter pecan, or was it coconut, or maybe mint chocolate chip, or strawberry or vanilla or ...

 

 

If we want her to be exactly she'll never be exactly I know the only really real Buffy is really Buffy and she's gone' who?
Nov 05 2006 05:42 pm   #22Guest

Mmmmm

Favorite Line would have to be the Out.For A Walk...Bitch.....

Favorite episode; Once more with Feelings, I agree that Signing Spike is just too good

Favorite fic:  Well, Charms of the Clarion and Promise of Frost by Euridice, Harbingers of Beatrice by Holly, And almost anything by JackofSpike and BloodshedBaby.  Well, anything from Euridyce and Holly too, but those three...man I love them

Nov 05 2006 08:24 pm   #23msclawdia

Eps:  Band Candy, The Body, The Gift, Never Leave Me would be a short list.

Scenes:  I can't even start or I'll wear my fingers out

A few fave Lines:  "Lucius, bring the car around", "It's a big rock.  I can't wait to tell all my friends....",  "I knew it! I knew it! Well, not 'knew it' in the sense of having the slightest idea, but I knew there was something I didn't know."

Fic:  I adore anaross and barb c.  There are a lot of good writers out there.

Ice cream:  I used to love Mississippi Mud from Baskin Robbins. Man, I haven't been there in forever.  Vanilla bean gelato.   Mint chocolate chip.



Nov 07 2006 10:52 am   #24DarkBloodyMistress

Poppin' my cherry here with my first forum post *crosses fingers*

 

Episode? Probably Tabula Rasa, yup, pretty sure that's it. Close second would have to be Something Blue

Scene? Ooooo, not sure I can choose... I like the scenes with Buffybot. She was freakin' hilarious.

Line? Hehe... on my emails I got the scene from AtS where Spike is mocking Angel from a rooftop. Thats my fave Spike line. I laughed my bootie off.

Favorite fanfic? Um... I gotta pick one?

Oh! Oh! In the states, we have these girlscounts that run amok selling all kinds of cookies and now Edy's Icecream has jumped on the bandwagon. They come out with icrcream in the flavours of the cookies those little giggling beret wearing mini-psychos sell! Tagalong icecream has chopped up cookies that taste like someone bakes a Reese's Peanutbutter Cup on top of a shortbread cookie. Thin Mint is a chocolate wafer with a thin layer of mint creme and covered in chocolate. And then there is my FAVORITE: Samoa!!! Vanilla cookies covered in caramel, topped with toasted coconut and drizzled with chocolate!

*sigh*

Stupid girlscouts need to sell cookies again so the icecream makes its way back to the shelves again.

Yes, 'cause my parents buy WAY too much and we end up with boxes in the pantry, fridge, freezer and just everywhere 'cause I have the kind of parents that try to be nice and buy stuff from cute lil' kids.... its tradition every year the get one of those round popcorn tins from the boyscouts and then flats of sodas from the high school band (my sister was in the band... they also sold pies but I haven't seen my parents buy those since Amanda graduated) Oh, and I like when they sell Krispy Kremes on the corner, even if you can get those in the store or at the Krispy Kreme restaurant down in Buford, lol... but last time they did, I didn't have cash *cries*

Favorite Episodes:  Once More With Feeling; The Body

Scenes:
Season Two, Innocence, when Oz and Willow are in the van at the army place and Oz talks about kissing her. It's when I first started to love the werewolf. Joyce and Ripper in Band Candy, pretty much all the scenes including them in that episode!
   Spuffy: Definitely in "Afterlife" when Buffy goes to Spike's crypt just after that beautiful shot with her and the stone angel's wings behind her seeming to come out of her back, with one of the greatest speeches where Spike tells her about dreaming of her and "every night I save you".

Lines:
"Oh, poor Watcher. Did your life flash before your eyes? Cuppa tea, cuppa tea, almost got shagged-- cuppa tea?" and "A date!? You are completely off your bird! I mean-- do you want it to be?" (Both of these are from Spike.) Willow's line in I think Surprise with Xander; "I knew it! I knew it! Well, not 'knew it' in the sense of having the slightest idea, but I knew there was something I didn't know! ... The We Hate Cordelia Club, of which you are the treasurer!" And In Season Three Faith and the Mayor, "I know two words that are going to make all your troubles go away. Miniature... Golf." And Faith's Look before she cracks up.

Fanfic:
Have to say, Mary's Journeys was fantastic. And Here We Go Round Again, time travel fic by Megan; plus dreamluver's His Way. Plus too many to count by some fabulous authors a lot of people already know.
             
       As anyone can tell, I have far too many favorites! Which is not a bad thing.

Whoa, so many people list romantic scenes as their favorites, I'm gonna look really weird in a moment.

At the beginning of Out of my Mind, when Buffy leaves and Spike says: "I will know your blood, Slayer. ... I will make your neck my chalice ... and drink deep.", tries to make a grand exit and promptly falls into an open grave "Ow!". Cracks me up every time.

I like several other of the funnier scenes, like the one in Becoming where Joyce is trying to make small talk with him (someone mentioned that one earlier), but the one with the grave always stands out.

Jan 23 2008 02:34 am   #34Scarlet Ibis
I definitely agree with that Out of My Mind scene, Diabola   Also, the "Come on--let's kill something", for fluffy puppies and Christmas speech Spike gives to Xander and Willow.

The scene with Anya and Xander and Andrew as the hostage.  That whole exchange was just awesome, IMHO.

I think it's possible the funny scenes are my favorite scenes...  I really enjoyed the humor on that show--it was clever, sometimes try, and just all around fantastic.  Like Willow impersonating vamp Willow and vamp Willow impersonating human Willow.  I love that episode--one of my faves

"I'd like to test that theory."  Giles came back; everything's going to be all right.  About a minute after he said that, it felt like the first time I let out my breath since Smashed.  I picked a non-Spike line because I can't really decide which one is my favorite of his stuff.

Can't pick a favorite episode.

Okay, episodes. I'd have to say Something Blue and than after that Touched and then School Hard.

Scene, the scene in Touched where Buffy and Spike just hold each other. I don't know why.

Favorite Lines:

Giles: If it's for me to scrub those hard to reach areas, I'd like to request you kill me now.

Spike: [Too many to list really.] It's a big rock. I can't wait to tell all my friends. They don't have a rock this big.

Buffy:  I like my evil like I like my men...evil.

Love too many fanfics to choose a favorite. 

Favorite Ice Cream, Ben and Jerry's Karmel Sutra.

Episode: I can't pick just one, but I'll keep it to three four:  Dopplegangland, Restless, OMWF (because it was brilliant) and Tabula Rasa.

Scene: Oh so many.  Off the top of my head is the group interactions in Dopplegangland especially when the gang discovers that Willow isn't a vampire - the whole Xander shaking the cross because it wasn't working to the hugging to Willow's line of "Say, you all didn't happen to do a bunch of drugs, did ya?" I laugh every single time I see it.  Best delivery, best timing ever.  If I was going to go for drama I'd pick the tower scenes from "The Gift."  Can't leave out "Hush" but it is really difficult to narrow it down to one, so I'll go with the Xander/Anya interaction because it was so darn funny to see her mimicking the sex act with her fingers totally wrecking the sweetness of the previous few seconds.  Great scene.

Line: Well, since I've already listed the one above and quoting all of OMWF would take up too much space I'd have to go with Spike's lines in "Fool for Love" - "Sooner or later you're gonna want it.  And the second, the second that happens ... You know I'll be there.  I'll slip in ... have myself a real good day."  Though as I type this out I'm thinking back to the Spike-Drusilla interaction in s2 "Halloween" with the memorable "eyeballs to entrails, my sweet" line.  'Course, that leads me to "Do you know what I miss? Leeches."  .... So, basically any/all Spike Drusilla interaction.  Yeah.  Love the things that come out of that crazy vampire's mouth.

Favorite fanfic:
Way too many to list.  I really should list a few, but I just can't.

Flavor of ice cream:  Vanilla.  Yeah.  I know.  It sounds weird and very plain but I love good vanilla ice cream with real vanilla bean in it.  I'm very bland.

"Line?  It's actually not Spike or Spuffy, but from Giles:  "To forgive is an act of compassion, Buffy.  It's not done because a person deserves it.  It's done because they need it."  One of these days I'm gonna write a post-Grave fic that centers on that theme for Spike and Buffy."


This is one of those scenes and lines that just stay with you - I loved this episode - thanks for posting the line.  I wish you would write this Giles influenced story - been working on some new images and I have one that you might like -

I actually have a post-Grave story that includes a reference to that line in a Spike/Buffy conversation... but I don't know if it's going anywhere, so it's not posted yet.
Writing should feel easy, like a monkey driving a speed boat.

Fav episode: Band Candy
Anya has some terrific lines but I can't think of any in particular at the moment, so I'll go with Spike's to Anya in season 7 -"You're like a dog with a bone!... It's my bone!"
Season 4 Superstar when Spike meets up with Jonathon and Buffy and gets a little closer to Buffy than he ever has before, when Jonathon has to step in and then when Spike's shocked at how buffy goes after him and she's so giggly and proud of herself for her intimidation skills.

Episode:

Like most viewers it is difficult to select "a favorite" episode so I will list three that are consistently on Episodes that I had a very strong response to:

Dead Things for the powerful emotional content and excellent visualization,
I Only Have Eyes For You for the creative and intense depiction of Buffy’s Love Gone Wrong and Lessons of Life and
The Yoko Factor I love the script and how every single character has such great lines – plus Giles drunk and missing the chair and his line about Latin and The Catholic Church.

Scene:

Buffy and Spike standing at his crypt door feeling each other through the door – I love the poignancy and the symbol of doors closed and their separation.
Church Scene from "Beneath You" - that will always be the scene that I remember when thinking of James Marsters and his Spike creation

Line:

Still have "Out – For – A – Walk – BITCH" as the first one that always comes up also Buffy’s "if the apocalypse comes, beep me"  now that I see Spike's great Spock line, I have to add that one to my Favs list. - btw, Love your quotes as Icons.  I wanted to add some text on mine but it always ends up looking so lousy.

Favorite fanfic:

Too many on my list of favorites –

 

Flavor of ice cream:

Butter Pecan

My gosh its possible to pick favorites? okay...

Episode:
Probably either Tabula Rasa or Touched or Something Blue or - oh, though its not exactly filled with Spuffy - Lies My Parents Told Me or Fool For Love (gotta love William there) Oh, but there are so many more than that...

Scene:
Oh, lots. I love Spike's dream in Out of My Mind and how he reacts when he wakes up, the scene in Touched when Spike gives that totally awesome speech to Buffy, oh, and that scene in Something Blue when Willow surrounds herself with Oz's stuff... gets me so sad every time..., and then I love the scene in Grave where Xander gives the famous 'yellow crayon' speech to Willow, oh, and that part when Xander proposes to Anya, and the ending scene in Fool for Love when Spike comforts Buffy, oh, and that scene where Spike and Buffy first meet in the alley in School Hard, and that scene in Lovers' Walk when Spike gives the 'Loves isn't brains- it's blood' speech, and the scene after Buffy dies in The Gift and Spike is just sobbing, and that scene in The Body where Anya talks about Joyce not ever being able to have juice again and not understanding the emotions she was feeling, oh, and that scene when Spike is captured by the First and he says under his breath 'she will come for me...' over and over again and the Buffy does come.... Oh, and there's hundreds more I just can't think of right now.

Line:

Oh my. Let us see....

Willow-"Well you know, I have a choice. I can spend my life waiting for Xander to go out with every other girl in the world until he notices me, or I can get on with my life." Buffy-"Good for you" Willow- "Well, I haven't chosen yet."

Xander-"It's a statistical impossibility that a sixteen-year-old girl unplug her phone."

Kendra-"That's me favorite shirt! That's me only shirt!"

Cordelia-"Why does everyone always yell my name? I'm not deaf, and I can take a hint. What's the hint?"

Buffy-"Cordelia, your mouth is open, sound is coming from it. This is never good."

Xander-"I laugh in the face of danger! Then I hide til it goes away."

Buffy-"Speak English, not whatever they speak in, um..." Giles-"England?"

Oz- "See, in my fantasy, when I'm kissing you, you're kissing me."(Awwwwwwwww...)

Spike- "Oh, listen to Mary Poppins. He's got his crust all stiff and upper with that nancy-boy accent. You Englishmen are always so... Bloody hell! Sodding, blimey, shagging, knickers, bullocks... Oh, god. I'm English!" Giles- "Welcome to the nancy-tribe."

Spike-"Randy Giles? Why not just call me "Horny Giles" or "Desperate-for-a-shag Giles"? I knew there was a reason I hated you."

Spike-"So how come I don't want to bite you? And why am I fighting other vampires? I must be a noble vampire. A good guy, on a mission of redemption. I help the helpless. I'm a vampire with a soul. Buffy- "A vampire with a soul? Oh my god, how lame is that?"

Spike-"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." (I love his smile right there!!!)

Anya- "Spike's got some sort of "get out of jail free" card that doesn't apply to the rest of us. I mean, he could slaughter 100 frat boys and...Forgiveness makes us human, blahdy, blah, blah, blah."

Buffy-"Wait, handbook? What handbook? How come I don't have a handbook?"

Spike-"This is the crack team that foils my every plan? I am deeply shamed."

Buffy-"You don't just sneak up on people in a graveyard. You make noise when you walk. You... stomp. Or yodel." 

Giles-"We can't let you go until we're sure that you're impotent or --" Spike-"Hey!" Buffy-"Flaccid?" Spike-"You are one step away missy." Buffy-"Giles help! He's gonna scold me."

Riley-"Okay. It's late, and I'm... I'm very tired now, so, I'm just gonna go far away and be... away."

Willow-"Not drowning. Wading. See, lite."

Spike-"Out. For. A. Walk......Bitch."

Xander-"Ok, on sleazing extra candy: Tears are key. Tears will normally get you the double-bagger. You can
also try the "you missed me" routine, but it's risky. Only go there for chocolate." 

Spike-"Yeah, I did a couple Slayers in my time. I don't like to brag. Who am I kidding? I love to brag!"

Joyce-"They don't have calories if I make them for you. Mom logic."

Spike- "I came, hit Faith a bunch of times, and left." Buffy-"Really? I mean, not that I'm glad..."

Wood- "Yeah, so did I, but I still wanted my mother to hold me like a little baby. In a manly way, of course."
 
My, oh, my. I could go on and on and on... But I won't.

Favorite Fanfic:

Wow. I really don't know where to start. This is a list WAAAAAAY too long.

Favorite Ice Cream:

Oh, Peanut Butter Cup. Or anything chocolate. Chocolate-based, chocolate-y, anything resembling chocolate added to it... Chocolate.

Geez!  Only ONE answer to these????????!!!!?!?!?!?!?!  How about top three (and that's hard too) LOL

Episode? Afterlife (that look, those moments, the promise!!!), Beneath You (for the end scene), Pangs (for the overall humor and ensemble moments)

Scene? "You're one hell of a woman" and the cuddle, THE look as Buffy came down the stairs and Spike realizes it's not the bot, Spike reveals he got the soul but sooooooo many more!

Line? "Not when it counted but I save you every night.", "It was the best night of my life. If you poke fun at me, you bloody well better use that, 'cause I couldn't bear it. It may not mean that much to you, but—", and for humor, "Out ... for ... a ... walk ... bitch"

(non verbal fav's include Spike vowing over dramatically to drink from Buffy's neck like a chalice and turning away only to fall into an open grave and Spike watching Buffy dance in School Hard)

Favorite fanfic? Ooooo hardest of all!  Current favorites  that will stay in my top always would be Forward To Time Past by Unbridled_brunette  and Echos by Hollydb but there are too many wonderful ones to single only one out!

Flavor of ice cream? Tin roof sundae, B&J's Americone Dream, Blue Bunny Bunny Tracks

Okay, so I cheated !  At least I didn't list them ALL LOL.

I was looking through this thread again and remembered a short speech I really liked, though it isn't comedic. I decided I had to put it down, because I think people forget about. It's in season Two, "Lie to Me" at the graveyard and Giles is talking to Buffy. The first scene in thsi episode with Drusilla is also fantastic and eerie.

Buffy: "Does it get easier?"
Giles: "You mean life?"
Buffy: "Yeah. Does it get easier?"
Giles: "What do you want me to say?"
Buffy: "Lie to me."
Giles: "Yes, it's terribly simple. The good guys are always stalwart and true. The bad guys are always easily distinguished by their pointy horns or black hats. We always defeat them and save teh day. No one ever dies and everybody lives happily ever after."
Buffy: "Liar."

Fav eppie was Graduation parts 1 and 2

Scene in graduation where Willow is babbling about panic and maybe dying and Oz kisses her, and they end up being together. So sweet.

In Conversations with dead people, Andrew and Warren as the First quote from Star Wars. "That boy is our last hope."-Andrew  "No, there is another."-Warren/the First  "Really, cuz I thought he was our only hope?"- Andrew  "I was just going with it. It was a thing-! Yeah, he's our last hope. "-Warren
and Holden Webster vamp to Buffy. "Buffy, I'm here to kill you, not to judge you."

Fav fics for different reasons His Way by dreamweaver and Equal Opportunities by Constance and In league with Serpents by Wyrwolfen

Epsiode: I love Crush. LOVE Crush. My heart breaks everytime I see Spike's face when he realises his invitation has been revoked.  It's just heartbreaking. And I love Once More With Feeling. I have the soundtrack . Ooh, and Fool For Love. Spike in the subway? Ohh yeah.

Scene: The scene in Intervention. You know, the scene. Also heartbreakingly cute. Any scene with Willow and Oz, or Willow and Tara, as long as no breakups/deaths ensue. And in the episode name that escapes me now, when Spike's in the wheelchair then he stands up. I was just like, "YAY SPIKE!"

Line:  Spike - It's a big rock. I can't wait to tell my friends, they don't have a rock this big.
    
           Cordy - One day, you're going to wake up in a coma.
           Giles - Wake up in a coma?

           Willow - It's a doodle. I do doodle. You too, you do doodle too.

           Buffy - Thank you guys, so much. You're like my fairy godmother, and Santa Claus, and Q all wrapped up into one. Q from Bond, not Star Trek.

Fanfic - Foward to Time Past, Unbridled Brunette. I just wish she would freaking update!

Ice Cream - Lactose intolerant. I'm a Gelati girl.
Jan 29 2008 02:57 am   #48Guest
Okay, decided to join in.  I'm gonna take a cue from pfeifferpack and list more than one for a few 'cause I just wanna

Episode: Crush, Fool for Love, Beneath You, Intervention, Something Blue, Once More With Feeling...Noticing a pattern? 

Scene: The church in Beneath You is my absolute favorite scene in the entire series.  You get Buffy and Spike together, he's all tortured and Hamlety, Buffy's face when she realizes Spike has a soul, and James rocked my socks to the moon in that scene...The only thing that could have made that scene better was if Spike hadn't cut his hair yet and he still had crazy basement hair

Line: Beneath You, Spike--"Get it hard, service the girl"  Pretty much sums up what he was feeling in Season Sex
         
          Something Blue-- Buffy: (Excitedly) Spike and I are getting married!
                                           Xander: (Baffled) How? What? How?
                                           Giles: Three excellent questions.


Favorite fanfic: Forward to Time Past by Unbridled Brunette
                           Long Day's Journey by Anaross
                           Spike's Will Be Done Series by TalesofSpike

Flavor of ice cream: This is a hard one, for ice cream is one of my favorite food.  Hagen Daas is my favorite brand, but I prefer homemade ice creams.  Hmm...I'll go with this: If I were on death row, my last meal with be a pint of Ben & Jerry's Phish Food.  The only better than ice cream is gelato :drool:

This is my favorite of all the Spike scenes - and you are so right, James Marsters was a marvel to watch in that scene -

"Get it hard, service the girl."

Hmm...like sometimes, he had to force himself when he wasn't in the mood?  "Service" is a damn interesting word to use.  The line always niggled in the back of my mind, but when you mentioned the "summs up what he was feeling," yeah, I just kinda drew that conclusion.
