  • TRIVIA (5)

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Jet: I'll take care of this. You can go back.
      Spike: You're not going to let him get away are you?
      Jet: When I was a cop, this was my beat. I'm the Black Dog and once I bite I don't let go. I have no regrets about her, and I'll settle this score on my own turf.

    • Faye: (referring to Jet) Well well, he used to be a cop hunh? That explains it.
      Spike: What's that?
      Faye: Why we can't get along for five minutes.

    • Alisa: Time doesn't stand still.

    • Ed: Duty calls, 3 o'clock tea!

    • Ed: Hey Faye, what did you put that stuff on for?
      Faye: Beautiful skin can only be maintained by tireless efforts which are ultimately totally futile, understand?
      Ed(while rubbing her head on Faye's legs): Mmmmmm, Yes! Futile! Useless!

    • Jet: For some reason, I didn't feel sad or broken up. It just didn't seem real, but slowly I realized that it was real, that you were gone and little by little I felt something inside of me go numb.
