Favourite ‘nice’ moments of the series

For me I love at the end of ‘Same Time, Same Place’ when Buffy and Willow hold hands on the bed to heal her skin

Also when Giles sees Buffy back in Season 6
Giles - You’re ...
Buffy - I know, a miracle
Giles - yes, but then I always thought so
😭

Amends when Faiths at the door and it’s obvious in her face despite the fact she was invited that there’s a part of her petrified Buffy is going to tell her to get out. I get total Notting Hill ‘i’m also just a girl’ vibes

Chosen - handing the scythe and the mixed emotions on Faith’s face. It’s not holding hands while the world burns or desperate teary moments. It’s ‘I think I’m going to die, here’s my weapon go and kill something. THATS my ship 😍😂

Cordy’s ‘of course’ in Helpless

Also in Spiral when they’re in the Winnebago
Dawn - Thanks
Buffy - For what?
Dawn - pretty much everything
😭😭

There are quite a few throughout the series that I love but these are probably my top four.

- When Buffy is awarded the "Class Protector" award in The Prom. I still cry every time I watch that scene.

- In Spiral when Spike immediately understands, and forgives Tara for opening the blinds and burning him.

- Buffy and the gang standing up for Tara, and calling her family, in Family.

-
Xander buying the prom dress for Cordy.

Giles' fatherly smile when Buffy got the Class Protector award.

Dawn's reaction to Tara and Willow getting back togther.

Cordelia finally telling Harmony to shut up, that she was a sheep.

Joyce making cocoa for Spike.

The story of Miss Kitty Fantastico.

Joyce and Spike's shared love of Passions.

I always liked Angelus, the big softie, giving Dru his heart and fangblocking Spike in the process.

Off the top of my head, I'm thinking of how despite Buffy and Cordelia almost came to blows, and then Cordy almost got killed, AND they were in competition, the so-called "Queen Bitch" saved an exhausted Buffy from Gorch by pretending to be Faith. Also, when a crying Buffy asks Cordelia to drive her home Cordy drops the vapid airhead act for a moment and says "Of course." Just two of the reasons I see Cordelia as more than a generic mean girl, though she tried to be (and she was, but there was much more to her than that).

A favorite scene is the end of The Wish with Buffy and her friends enjoying themselves in sunlight, though it wasn't so much being nice as it was nice to know it could've been worse, but they made a difference.

Much of the rest is stated above, though I'm sure I'll think of more.

And two more just came to mind: Joyce hitting Spike with an axe saying, "Get away from my daughter." (On a lesser note, also when Joyce stood up to Principal Snyder, absolutely love her "nya-nya-nya" comment.)

Spike doesn't hold a grudge...one of the times that was a very pleasant surprise was when Spike came to drop off flowers for Joyce's memory and it was clear it had nothing to do with scoring points with Buffy or anyone else, he'd genuinely liked her without any real selfishness or manipulation to it.


Oh! that scene where Angel tells Judy in the Hyperion that he forgives her just before Judy dies. That really gets to me. Angel may not find it easy to forgive himself, but he usually can others.

Choices when Willow says she's going to college in Sunnydale and she and Buffy hug and laugh. It's such a sweet friendship moment.
Yeah that hug pounce ♥
I like the scene at end or Dead Mans Party where Willow & Buffy are playfully insulting each other.
In Reptile Boy where Buffy & Xander are braiding Willow's hair while watching TV.

Cordelia telling the Go Fish monster that she'll still love him and buy him pool toys because she thinks he is Xander.
Spike and Dawn - so many of their moments are really nice.
Spike telling Buffy that he was sorry she had to die because he didn't keep his promise to keep Dawn safe.
Angel and Cordelia falling asleep feeding Connor

Spike taking Buffy to the couch to fix up her hands after she dug her way out of her grave - and the look on his face when he first realises it is her.
Anya and Tara's friendship - their chat about the magic box website, them thumb wrestling, Tara listening to Anya practice her wedding vows.
Buffy and Xander talking about Ampata and how Buffy died but she had Xander to bring her back at the end of Inca Mummy Girl.
Buffy's smile when Faith says she isn't the one and only chosen any more and will have to live like a normal person.

A lot have already been mentioned above, but also

When Giles tries to ask Jenny out and she ends up asking him out

When Buffy asks Giles to lie to her about life ever getting easy, after she stakes Ford

When Oz turns down Willows offer to make out because even though he wants to do it, he says he will wait until she really means it

The end of Amends

The end of Earshot when Buffy tells Giles she knows about him and her mum and he walks into a tree (probably more of a funny moment, but it just feels nice after what Buffy had been through in the ep)

For a show all about not doing the expected, I kinda love the small example of that in (can't remember the episode) S2, when Giles and Jenny lean in for a kiss and then the bell rings, but instead of the classic scene where they don't get to finish, they ignore it and we get their first kiss after all.
