    • Spike: Aren't you a "throw himself to the lions" sort of sap these days.

      A reference to the Roman practice of throwing Christians (and other enemies) into an arena with hungry lions. Angel's willingness to sacrifice himself for Buffy and the others is being likened to willingly being eaten by the lions to distract their attention and sate their hunger.
