TV Tuesday.


Best Lines:
  • "This is what happens when you have school on Saturday."-Cordelia in "The Dark Age" on Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
  • "It just means that you'd rather be with someone you hate than be with me."-Willow in "Innocence" on Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
  • "They might not look it but bunnies can really take care of themselves."-Oz in "Phases" on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. This might be the root of Anya's fear of them.
  • "Welcome to the mystery that is men. I think it goes something, like, they grow body hair they lose all ability to tell you what they really want."-Buffy in "Phases" on Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
  • "Passion, it lies in all of us. Sleeping, waiting and though unwanted, unbidden, it will stir. Open its jaws and howl. It speaks to us, guides us, passion rules us all and we obey. What other choice do we have?...Passion is the source of our finest moments: the joy of love, the clarity of hatred, and the ecstasy of grief...It hurts sometimes more than we can bear. If we could live without passion, maybe we'd know some kind of peace, but we would be hollow. Empty rooms, shuttered and dank, without passion we'd be truly dead."-Angelus in "Passion" on Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
  • "We like to talk big. Vampires do. 'I'm going to destroy the world.' That's just tough guy talk, strutting around with your friends over a pint of blood. The truth is, I like this world. You've got dog racing, Manchester United and you got people; Billions of people walking around like Happy Meals with legs. It all right here. But then someone comes along with a vision, with a real passion for destruction. Angel could pull it off. Goodbye, Piccadilly. Farewell, Leicester bloody square."-Spike in "Becoming: Part 2" on Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Best Outfits:
  • Harvey Specter's tux in "The Choice" on Suits.
Product Placement:
  • Animal crackers in "What's My Line? Part 2" on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Are monkey's really the only cookie animal that wears pants?
Tangents:
  • Xander and Cordelia on Buffy the Vampire Slayer--where did that come from?! I loved them together.  In "Bad Eggs" Angel tells Buffy that he can't have kids. Yet he does have one with Darla on Angel--Whedon was there before Twilight.  Angel turning into Angelous--OMG classic!! Plus could you have a better lesson in abstinence. Then Xander who admits that even linoleum makes him want to have sex--but then there's Oz, who wants to kiss Willow--freeze frame--but doesn't because it's not just the kissing, it's the person you're kissing!
  • I absolutely loved the opening scene in "The Price You Pay" on Dallas. JR might be old, but he's still JR.
