Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 3 Episode 4 Quotes

Willow: I put those towels up for privacy.
Xander: Oh, no worries, I can handle the Oz full monty. I mean, not handle handle, like, uh, hands-to-flesh, handle.
Willow: Okay, well, it's not for you. It's for me. Um, 'cause I'm still getting used to half a monty.
Xander: Oh, good. Half? You and Oz? Which half?
Willow: Wouldn't you like to know.

Faith: All men are beasts, B.
Buffy: Okay, I was hoping to not get that cynical till I was at least 40.
Faith: It's not cynical, I mean, it's realistic. Every guy, from Manimal right down to Mr. I-Loved-The-English-Patient, has beast in him. And I don't care how sensitive they act; they're all still just in it for the chase.
