Quotable Quotes:

Joyce: Hi, honey. You alright?

Buffy: Sure.

Joyce: Probably just full from that bite of dinner you nearly had. (PG)

Giles: Thank you. I've, uh, just come back from Oakland. A friend of mine called with a lead. Stories about someone fighting vampires. It, uh, didn't pan out, I'm afraid.
Joyce: (sighs) No Buffy.
Giles: No vampires. Bunch of school kids in heavy mascara listening to extremely silly music.
Joyce: Well, thank you for going. (steps into the living room and crosses her arms) I can hardly, uh... (exhales and smiles weakly) I can hardly leave the house. I'm just afraid she'll call and she'll need my help.
Giles: (puts his glasses back on) Buffy is the most capable child I've ever known. I mean, she may be confused, unhappy, but I honestly believe she's in no danger.
Joyce: (lowers her arms) I just wish I could talk to her. The last thing we did was fight. (fidgets with her hands)
Giles: Joyce, you mustn't blame yourself for her leaving.
Joyce: (nods) I don't. (takes a breath) I blame you. (exhales)
Joyce: You've been this huge influence on her, guiding her. You had this whole relationship with her behind my back. I feel like you've taken her away from me.
Giles is speechless for a moment while he considers his answer.
Giles: I didn't make Buffy who she is.
Joyce: And who exactly is she?
Giles just looks at her. (Anne)
