"I’ve been awake all night. I know I’m supposed to teach you self-reliance, but I can’t leave you out there to fight alone. To hell with what’s right, I’m ready to back you up. Let’s find the evil a-and fight it together."
Alex Knightley (to Emma Woodhouse)
"I’d just like to say thank you. You believed in me when no one else would. Even in my darkest hours, you were there for me, and that means more to me than you’ll ever know.
I guess what I’m really trying to say is, “I love you”."
Emma Woodhouse (to Alex Knightley)
Knightley: Your logic does not resemble our Earth logic.
Emma: Mine is much more advanced.
Knightley: I cannot believe that you are fool enough to do something like this!
Emma: Oh, no, I’m twice the fool it takes to do something like this.
Knightley: How did you know it was me?
Emma: Your eyes. You’re the only person in the world that can look that annoyed with me.
Emma: Harriet’s got the big puppy love. I mean, who wouldn’t? You’re handsome, and brave, and heroic, emotionally stunted, erratic, prone to turning evil and, lets face it, a eunuch.
Knightley: Hey, how can you… I’m not a eunuch.
Emma: Knightley, it’s just a figure of speech.
Knightley: Find a better one.
Alex: Yes, well, the problem is after a final battle, it’s difficult to get any… well, the Slayer’s not… she’s rather…
Emma:It’s okay to use the D-word, Knightley.
Alex: Dead. And hence not very forthcoming.
Emma:Why didn’t the Watchers keep fuller accounts of it? The journals just stop.
Alex: Well, I suppose if they’re anything like me, they just (makes a face) find the whole subject too-
Emma: Unseemly? (he stares) Damn. Love ya but you Watchers are such prigs sometimes.
Alex: (looks a little hurt) Painful… I was going to say. (they share a moment)
I regret to inform you that with May’s hiatus temporarily trying up ideas and references coinciding with a month-long vacation - and after that, a further period of stifled mashup energy - that it’s time to call temporary hiatus.
I should return around August or September, hopefully with lots of new ideas.
