Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 2 Episode 7: "Lie to Me" Quotes
Buffy: Does it ever get easy?
[She stakes a vampire Ford after he rises from the grave]
Giles: You mean life?
Buffy: Yeah, does it get easy?
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 easily distinguished by their pointy horns or black hats, and we always defeat them and save the day. No one ever dies and everybody lives happily ever after.
Ford: I will become immortal.
Buffy: Well, I've got a news flash for you, brain trust. That's not how it works. You die, and a demon sets up shop in your old house, and it walks, and it talks, and it remembers your life, but it's not you.
Ford: It's better than nothing.
Buffy: And your life is nothing? Ford, these people don't deserve to die.
Ford: Well, neither do I! But apparently no one took that into consideration, 'cause I'm still dying. I look good, don’t I? Let me tell you something, I’ve got maybe six months left and by then what they bury won’t even look me. I will be bald, and shriveled, and smell bad. No, I’m not going out that way.
Angel: I did a lot of unconscionable things when I became a vampire. Drusilla was the worst. She was an obsession of mine. She was pure, and sweet, and chaste.
Buffy: And you made her a vampire...
Angel: First I made her insane. I killed everybody she loved, visited every mental torture on her I could devise. She eventually fled to a convent, and on the day she took her Holy Orders, I turned her into a demon.
Buffy: Well, I asked for the truth.
Angel: Do you love me?
Angel: Do you?
[She turns away and back to him]
Buffy: I love you. I don't know if I trust you.
Willow: So, you two were sweeties in fifth grade?
Buffy: Not even! Ford wouldn't give me the time of day.
Ford: Well, I was a manly sixth grader. Couldn't be bothered with someone that young.
Buffy: It was terrible. I moped over you for months. Sitting in my room, listening to that Divnyls song, "I Touch Myself.”
[She looks shocked]
Buffy: Of course, I had no idea what it was about.
Drusilla: My dear boy has gone all the way, hasn’t he? To her.
Drusilla: The girl. The Slayer. Your heart stinks of her. Poor little thing, she has no idea what’s in store.
Angel: This can’t go on, Drusilla. It’s got to end.
Drusilla: Oh no, my pet. This is just the beginning.
[She walks away]
