Who do you
kill for fun around here? (School Hard)
I was actually
at Woodstock. That was a weird gig. I fed off a flower person, and I spent
the next six hours watchin' my hand move. (School Hard)
Do you know
what I find works real good with Slayers? Killing them. (School Hard)
I just like
them* (*weapons). They make me feel all manly. (School Hard)
Slayer I killed... she begged for her life. You* (*Buffy) don't strike
me as the begging kind. (School Hard)
you take the killing for granted. And then it's gone, and you're like,
'I wish I'd appreciated it more.' Stopped and smelled the corpses, you

to tell you* (*Angel), it made me sick to my stomach seeing you being the
Slayer's lap dog. (Innocence)
I did a
couple of Slayer in my time, I don't like to brag. Who am I kidding? I
love to brag!

till it kills you both. You'll fight, and you'll shag, and you'll hate
each other till it makes you quiver, but you'll never be friends. Love
isn't brains, children, it's blood... blood screaming inside you to work
its will. (Lover's Walk)
I may be

puppies anymore. I can't bite anything. I can't even hit people. (Pangs)

I've got useful information, and I feel I'm being mistreated. (Pangs)

might turn me into a stink beetle or what all. (Something Blue)
What I am, a bleeding broken record? I'm bad! It's just... I can't bite
anymore. (Goodbye Iowa)
And I should
do what in my spare time? Sit at home knitting cunning sweater sets? (Out
of My Mind)
I will know
your blood, Slayer. I will make your neck my chalice... and drink deep.
(Out of My Mind)
Buffy! Everywhere I turn, she's there! That nasty little face, that...
bouncing shampoo-commercial hair, that whole sodding holier-than-thou attitude!

You know, I really hope so because God knows you* (*Buffy) need
some satisfaction in life besides shagging Captain Cardboard and I never
really liked you anyway and... and you have stupid hair. (No Place Like

fast. Right, then. We fought. I won. The end. Pay up. (Fool For Love)
I'm a good
man. (William - Fool For Love)
a vampire is a profound and powerful experience. I could feel this new
strength coursing through me. Getting killed made me feel alive for the
very first time. (Fool For Love)

I can feel it, Slayer. You know you want to dance. (Fool For Love)

And I can

I'm through playing. Bloody well

I... love you* (*Buffy).
You're all I bloody think about. Dream about. You're in my gut... my throat...
I'm drowning in you, Summers, I'm drowning in you.

Why... do you bitches torture me? (Crush)

one of us can do about it. (Crush)

But I want

I'm a vampire with a soul. (Tabula Rasa)
I'm a hero

Give me what I want. Make me what
I was, so Buffy can get what she deserves. (Grave)
I'm not fast! Not a quick study!
I'm just a guy who can lend a
hand if you'll let me, Slayer. (Beneath You)
I can't say sorry, I can't use
forgive me. All I can say is... Buffy... I've changed. (Beneath You)
I can be useful, 'cause, honestly,
I've got nothing better to do. Make use of me if you* (*Buffy) want.

The spark. I wanted to give you*
what you deserved. And I got it. They put the spark in me, and now all
it does is burn. (Beneath You)
Why does a man do what he mustn't?
For her. To be hers. To be the kind of man who would never... To be the
kind of *man*. (Beneath You)
And she shall look on him with
forgiveness, and everybody will forgive and love... and he will be loved.
I'm a bad man. William is a baaad
man. I hurt the girl. (Help)
I hurt you, Buffy. And I will
pay. I am paying. Because I hurt the girl. (Help)
Don't let him hurt the girl. (Help)
Here to help. No hurting the girl.
No, bollocks to the whole thing.
I don't need your* (*Buffy's) mollycoddling. (Him)
I'm in trouble, Buffy... (Selfless)
I could never ask* (*for help).
Not after... (Selfless)
I don't have anywhere else to
No. Not the chip, not the chip
damn it. You honestly think I'd go to the end of the underworld and back
to get my soul and then... Buffy, I can barely live with what I did. It
haunts me. All of it. If you think I would add to the body count now, you
are crazy. (Sleeper)
This chip... They did it to me.
I couldn't help it. But the soul I got on my own... For you* (*Buffy).
I've killed, and I can feel them.
I can feel every one of them. (Sleeper)
Help me. Can you help me? (Sleeper)
I have come to redefine the words
pain and suffering since I fell in love with you* (*Buffy). (Never
Soul's not all about moonbeams
and pennywhistles, luv. It's about self-loathing. I get it. Had to travel
'round the world, but I understand you* (*Buffy) now. I understand
the violence inside. (Never Leave Me)
As bad as I was, as evil and as
wretched as I was, I never truly hated myself back then. Not like I do
now. (Never Leave Me)
Because she* (*Buffy) believes
in me. (Bring on the Night)
She* (*Buffy) will come
for me. She will come for me. She will come... for... She will come for...
She will come... She will come for me... She... will come for me. (Showtime)
Think I still dream of a crypt
for two with a white picket fence? (First Date)
Well, there's always those that
like the look. Bad boy, you know, does it for some of them. (First Date)
I went to great lengths. Lots
of trouble. And now I'm unique. Well, more or less. Got myself a soul.
Whatever that means. (Get it Done)
I did this for you* (*Buffy)!
The soul, the changes, it's what you wanted! (Get it Done)
I reformed way before you* (*Faith)
did. (Dirty Girls)
I'm nothing like Angel. Angel's
dull as a table lamp. And we have very different coloring. (Dirty Girls)
See, the genius of it is you soak
it* (*onion) in ice water for an hour so it holds its shape. Then
you deep-fry it, root-side up, for about 5 minutes. (Empty Places)
You're her friends, and you betray
her* (*Buffy) like this? (Touched)
I don't exactly have a reputation
for being a thinker. I follow my blood... which doesn't exactly rush in
the direction of my brain... (Touched)
A hundred-plus years... And there's
only one thing I've ever been sure of: you* (*Buffy). (Touched)
You're a hell of a woman. You're
the one, Buffy. (Touched)
I don't want to be this good-looking
and athletic. We all have crosses to bear... (Touched)
All I did was... hold you* (*Buffy).
Watch you sleep. And it was the best night of my life. (End of Days)
I can feel it, Buffy. My soul.
It's really there. Kinda stings. (Chosen)
You* (*Buffy) beat 'em
back, it's for me to do the clean up. (Chosen)
I wanna see how it ends.
Bugger! (Just Rewards)
I must be in hell. (Just
...I save the world, throw myself
onto the proverbial hand grenade for love, honor, and all the right reasons,
and what do I get? Bloody well toasted and ghosted is what I get, isn't
it? It's not fair!(Just Rewards)
I fought for my soul. Went through
the demon trials. Almost did me in a dozen times over, but I kept fighting.
'Cause I knew it was the right thing to do. (Destiny)
I'm nothing like you!* (*Angel)
...But, uh... for a demon... I
never did think that much about the nature of evil. No. Just threw myself
in. Thought it was a party. I liked the rush. I liked the crunch. Never
did look back at the victims. (Damage)
...But this is important, what's
happening here. Fred gave her life for it. The least I can do is give what's
left of mine. (Shells)
Finally got ourselves a decent
brawl. (Not fade Away)
