    Can someone quickly remind me how the scoobies resolved their conflict in season 4 when Spike told them lies about what the others had said and they're all at each others throats? When they made up was Buffy like "you're not strong but you're a valued member of the team" (not actual quote but along those kind of lines), something where the truths upset them but they turn it around into something positive?

    It's really bugging me because I know I've seen something like that scenario before (someone tells an upsetting truth and people get upset but they work it out, kind of in a you're annoying but I love you anyway kind of way) but can't think what it's from and I'm wondering if it's from a Buffy episode somewhere.

    Do you mean from Primeval? Here's the script, I wasn't sure which part you specifically wanted....

    BUFFY
    How you doing?

    WILLOW
    Super. What was I thinking, using stairs all this time?

    BUFFY
    Okay. Good.
    (a beat/then)
    Will…

    WILLOW
    Really, Buffy, it's not as scary as I thought.

    BUFFY
    No. I was going to say… I'm sorry. I hate that things have been so strained between all of us.

    Willow takes this in. Then -

    WILLOW
    It's not your fault. Spike stirred up trouble.

    BUFFY
    But - I think trouble was stir up-able. I think we've all sort of drifted apart this year…
    (off her silence)
    Don't you?

    WILLOW
    (it's hard to admit)
    Maybe a little. But, you know, first year of college. Hard to keep the high school gang together.

    BUFFY
    But I want it together. I miss you, and Xander - and Giles.
    (then)
    And it is my fault. I've been a bad friend. I got so caught up in my own stuff.

    WILLOW
    You're the slayer, Buffy. Your stuff is pretty crucial.

    BUFFY
    I mean Riley. And - Riley, mostly.

    Both of the girls are growing more emotional now.

    WILLOW
    I wasn't exactly Ms. Available either. I kept secrets. I hid things from everyone.

    BUFFY
    That's not your fault. I mean, you were going through something huge -

    WILLOW
    I wanted to tell you. But I was so scared…

    BUFFY
    You can tell me anything, Willow. I love you. You're my best friend.

    WILLOW
    Me too. I love you too.

    They try to rappel closer to one another, hug. But it doesn't go very well. Instead they wait until they land on top of the elevator - and practically fall into each other's arms.

    BUFFY
    Let's promise to never not talk again -

    WILLOW
    I promise. I promise…

    Now XANDER, who was following close behind them, lands on the elevator. Before he knows what hit him, Buffy and Willow are all over him with the hugs and kisses.

    BUFFY
    Xander!

    WILLOW
    Xander! Wonderful Xander!

    Xander reacts with confusion - then, with mounting anxiety.

    BUFFY
    Xander - you know we love you, right?

    WILLOW
    We do. Totally.

    XANDER
    Oh god. We're gonna die, aren't we?

    WILLOW
    No - we just missed you.

    The girls squeeze him even more tightly. Xander, sandwiched between his two hugging friends, finally goes with it and grins goofily… Looks up at the descending Giles.

    XANDER
    (calling up)
    Giles, hurry up! You definitely want to get down here for this.


    INT. ELEVATOR SHAFT - MOMENTS LATER (DAY)

    CLOSE ON the seam to the outer elevator doors as Xander shoves a crowbar into it.

    WIDEN to take in our heroes, together on top of the elevator, ready to face anything.

    BUFFY
    (sotto)
    Okay. If we stick together, we'll be fine. Everybody ready?


    Everyone nods.

    Thanks for that. Okay, whatever I'm thinking of isn't from Buffy. :)
