Buffy Anne Summers
Alexander 'Xander' Harris
In the teaser Buffy mentions seeing Angel in L.A. for just 5 minutes - which is true, from her point of view. However, we who saw the previous episode of Angel ("I Will Remember You", 1x08), know better.
At the end of the episode when Willow is making cookies and trying to make amends for her spell, her shirt reads "Speak No Evil".
Riley mentions taking Buffy driving "past the vineyards". Since they are local, and since Riley was able to refer to them this vaguely and expect Buffy to understand, then these are probably the same vineyards that figure prominently in season seven.
Goof: When Buffy catches up with Spike she is wearing gray pants. When she enters Giles' house with Spike and starts to tie him up, she is wearing green pants.
Goof: When Xander is trying to remember what is going on and says 'Willow' Buffy is seen kissing Spike, yet somehow she is able to say "Um Spike, honey, get off' you could see she wasn't saying anything.
Goofs: When Spike complains that Passions is on, direct sunlight shines on Spike and the bathtub, yet he does not burn. Also, Spike's reflection can be seen multiple times in the glass doors of Giles' bookcase.
Goof: When Buffy punches Spike after he punches her (half-way through the episode; Spike has just escaped Giles's place) it clearly hits his forehead, but he clutches his nose in pain.
Goof: Buffy's hair changes from being wavy to straight continually in this episode.
Xander: (After seeing Buffy & Spike kiss) Can I be blind too?
Buffy: How long are you gonna pull this crap?
Spike: How long am I gonna live once I tell you?
Giles: Spike, we have no intention of killing a harmless, um, creature.
Xander: Just think of my lips as the Fruit Roll-Ups of Love. (Anya gives him a weird look) OK, that was gross.
Buffy: Spike, these are my friends. Besides, it's kind of my job.
Spike: For now.
Buffy: What, you want me to stop working?
Spike: Let's see. Do I want you to give up killing my friends? Yeah, I've given it some thought.
Riley: What's his name?
Riley: The groom.
Riley: That's a name?
(Xander waves his hands in front of the now blind Giles' face)
Giles: Stop whatever you're doing! Your hands smell like fruit roll-ups!
Xander: We don't need any more snacks Mom!
Anya: I liked the fruit roll-ups.
Buffy: I saw that fear in your eyes when you caught me looking at wedding dresses, and I had to give you a hard time.
Riley: I did not have fear in my eyes.
Buffy: Yes, you did. You were looking at me like I was a cartoon ball & chain.
Riley: So you decided to tell me you were getting married.
Riley: So, you're insane.
Riley: But you're still single?
Spike: Don't I get a cookie?
Spike: Well, I gotta have something. I still have Buffy taste in my mouth.
Buffy: You're a pig, Spike.
Spike: Yeah, well, I'm not the one who wanted "Wind Beneath My Wings" for the first dance.
Willow: Did I mention about the sorry part?
Buffy: We may be into a forgetting spell later.
Willow: Look, cookies! A very not-evil thing I did. Oatmeal?
Giles: Yes, very funny. They're chocolate chip. I can see them. I still need my glasses - you couldn't have been more specific and give me 20/20?
Willow: Eat a cookie and ease my pain?
Buffy: Mmm. Better?
Willow: Well, baking lifts about 30% of my guilt. But only 7% of my inner turmoil.
D'Hoffryn: You have much anger and pain. Your magic is strong, but your pain... It's like a scream that pierces dimensional walls. We heard your call.
Willow: I'm sorry. I'll try for a... quiet rage. Bye.
Xander: Something about Willow and her griefy "poor me" mood swings. So, so tired of it.
Anya: You mean I don't have to be nice about her anymore?
Riley: (about Spike) Who is this guy? Does he go here?
Buffy: Spike? Oh, no, he's totally old.
Buffy: Well, not as old as my last boyfriend was.
Riley: Okay. It's late. And I'm... I'm very tired now. So... I'm just gonna go far away and be... away.
Xander: Will, not liking the drowning of the sorrows.
Willow: Not drowning, wading. Uh, see? Light. No big.
Buffy: No big? Anybody remember when Buffy had the fun beer fest and went One Million Years B.C.?
Xander: Sadly, without the fuzzy bikini.
Anya: Off topic, Xander.
Buffy: I'm getting married. Can you believe it?
Riley: I don't think "no" is a strong enough word.
Buffy: I know, it's crazy. I mean, we fought for all those years, and then... Sometimes you just look at someone, and... you know. You know?
Buffy: I think maybe we fought because we couldn't admit how we really felt about each other.
Riley: Can we start again?
Riley: You can have the best time in a car. It's not about getting somewhere. You have to take your time... forget about everything. You just relax... let it wash over you... the air... the motion. Let it roll.
Buffy: We are talking about driving, right?
Riley: I thought I was.
Giles: We can't let you go until we're sure that you're impotent or-
Giles: Sorry, poor choice of words. Until we know that you're...
Spike: You are one step away, missy!
Buffy: Giles, help! He's gonna scold me.
Riley: I thought maybe we could have a little spread - sandwiches, maybe some ants. Could be fun.
Buffy: We were talking about a picnic?
Riley: Oh... so, was that a conversation I actually had or one I was just practicing?
Riley: Okay, yes, I have been known to do a little prep work before our conversations. It's not easy, you know, talking to you sometimes. It's like an oral exam.
Buffy: Boy, that's just what every girl longs to hear.
Buffy: (about Riley) I just... feel like something's missing.
Willow: He's not making you miserable?
Buffy: Exactly. Riley seems so solid. Like... he wouldn't cause me heartache.
Willow: Get out. Get out while there's still time.
Buffy: It's just... different, you know? A picnic! First of all, daylight. That's kind of a new venue, Buffywise. And the best part - he said that he would bring all the food, so all I have to do is show up and eat. Those are two things I'm really good at.
Willow: So he's nice?
Buffy: Very, very.
Willow: And there's sparkage?
Buffy: Yeah. He's... have you seen his arms? Those are... good arms to have.
Buffy: Shut up or I swear...
Spike: Swear what? You are not going to do any thing to me, you don't have the stones.
Buffy: Oh I got the stones, I got a whole bunch of... stones.
Spike: Yeah? You are all talk.
Buffy: Giles! I accidentally killed Spike! That's okay, right?
Xander: Spike! He's all untied! (looking at Buffy and Spike in the chair) Which you probably noticed.
Buffy: Honey, we need to talk about the invitations. Now do you want to be William the Bloody or just Spike? 'Cause either way it's going to look majorly weird.
Spike: Whereas the name "Buffy" gives it that touch of classic elegance.
Buffy: What's wrong with "Buffy"?
Giles: Oh, such a good question.
Buffy: Spike and I are getting married!
Xander: How? What? How?
Giles: Three excellent questions.
Buffy: It's just so sudden! I don't know what to say!
Spike: Just say yes. Make me the happiest man on Earth.
Buffy: Oh Spike! Of course it's yes!
Buffy: Look at my poor neck! All bare and tender and exposed. All that blood just pumping away.
Spike: Oh jeez, Giles, make her stop!
Buffy: You know what? I think you don't want us to let you go. Maybe we made it too comfy here.
Spike: Comfy? Do I look comfy? I'm chained in a bathtub drinking pig's blood from a novelty mug. Doesn't rate huge in the Zagat's guide.
Buffy: Is there something you want to tell me?
(Buffy gestures to the sign that the Riley was helping to put up that just happens to say Lesbian in big bold letters.)
Riley: Oh, yes. I am a lesbian.
Spike: Passions is on! Timmy's down the bloody well, and if you make me miss it I'll...
Giles: You'll what!? Lick me to death!?
Buffy: You think I don't live with the shadow of Drusilla over my head? Like you won't be thinking of her when you're making sweet love to me?
Spike: This is the crack team that foils my every plan? I am deeply shamed.
According to several articles the props department used colored chocolate syrup to simulate blood in containers. This is seen in this episode when Spike drinks blood from a coffee mug.
Passions, the NBC soap opera that Sarah Michelle Gellar introduced Joss to, is first mentioned in this episode by revealing Spike to be a fan.
The Blink-182 song "All the Small Things" is in this episode.
Willow: 'Cause you had your hands full with the undead English patient?
Willow is referring to The English Patient, a 1996 Oscar winning film based on Michael Ondaatje's novel of the same name.
Willow: We could eat sundaes and watch Steel Magnolias and you can tell me how at least I don't have diabetes.
Steel Magnolias was a film in 1989 starring Julia Roberts, Sally Field, Dolly Parton, Shirley MacLaine, Daryl Hannah and Olympia Dukakis about a group of women and their families, the lead up to a wedding, and their lives thereafter.
Xander: I believe that's the dance of a brave little toaster.
The Brave Little Toaster was a cartoon film in the early 90s about the adventures of a magical toaster and his friends.
Spike: Comfy?! I'm chained in a bathtub, drinking pig's blood from a novelty mug. Doesn't rate huge in the Zagat's Guide.
Zagat's guide is a yearly survey of restaurants, rated for the quality of food, the decor and service. It started out in L.A. area, now all over USA, and online.
Spike: Passions is on! Timmy's down the bloody well, and if you make me miss it I'll...
Passions is a one-hour daily soap opera heavily targeted towards teens. It's relatively new, having only premiered in July of 1999, and is known for its far-out storylines (even by soap opera standards). One such storyline includes that of Tabitha (Juliet Mills), a mean witch, and Timmy (Josh Ryan Evans), a doll she brought to life.
Title: Something Blue
This comes from the Old English rhyme in regards to weddings: "Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue... and a Sixpence in Her Shoe." The bride should have each of these items to secure good luck. Nowadays the last one is left apart.
Buffy: No big? Anyone remember when Buffy had the fun beer-fest and went One Million Years B.C.?
Xander: Sadly without the fuzzy bikini.
One Million Years B.C. is a 1966 film staring Raquel Welch as Loana, a bikini clad cave woman fighting prehistoric monsters.
