Day #16: Favourite piece of monologue

Today's question should have been: Episode you like that everyone else hates. However, since I have zero idea of what episodes are popular and not popular in Buffy fandom, I decided to take the liberty and change the question (I shall do the same for Day #29).

As I chose the question *g* my answer is very easy. I suspect to really appreciate the full humour of this little snippet of monologue you actually have to be British, as it's Giles who says it and he is more than a little sparky abut Americans.

It's from the Season Three episode 'Dead Man's Party' when Giles realises just what the mask Joyce has up in her house is. He's in his car on his way to the Summers' house to warn them - and of course in true Buffy fashion, it's not just a case of warning Buffy and Joyce or even the Summers' females and the Scoobies, because there is a full in flow party going on.

And this is what Giles says:

Unbelievable. (mocks Joyce) 'Do you like my mask?  Isn't it pretty?  It raises the dead!' Americans.

His tone and the look on his face is perfectly priceless and so very, very Giles.

Lmao! That is one of my fave lines! That, Xander's "Party in my eye socket and everyone's invited... Sometimes I shouldn't say words." And Spike's quote about Giles: "Life flash before your eyes? Cup of tea, Cup
Of tea, almost got shagged, cup of tea."

There were some really witty lines in Buffy, still quote them now (I think the one I quote most is Cordelia's "One day you are going to wake up in a coma.").

I'm glad you like that snippet too.

*Nods* Yes, I like all of those.

There really were - lots and lots and lots, it's one of the things that made Buffy so awesome.
