Ah god the ‘nobody messes with my boyfriend’ 🙈These came to mind.
"But nobody messes with my boyfriend!"
"The only thing I know for certain is that my boyfriend is locked away and I'm not helping."
The 'my boyfriend' part of it is just a bit cringey.
"No. No. No, no. We're just good friends. Or mortal enemies, depending on which day of the— was that the funny part?"
Because when were Buffy and Robin either good friends or mortal enemies?
"Are you kidding, it was like a meat party in my mouth! ...Okay, now I'm just a kid and even I know that came out wrong."
In the first place it's not that funny and I remember someone saying it weirds them out thinking about a group of 40 year old men writing that line for a 15 year old to say and now I have to agree.
like when she encourages Joyce to start slagging off her troubled 17 year old daughter? Pat might be my most hated guest character 😂 There’s a lot of lines in that episode I hateThe first thing that comes to mind was all the Dracula worship. I think it was jarring, but a lot of it was just ridiculous (there was only one moment that Xander was cracking me up with it).
If I decided to include season 7 then this would include many uncomfortable paragraphs sure to derail the thread. Let's just say I have no plans of ever watching that season again, and the dialog throughout it (however much I might've liked the word "guestage"), especially the latter half.
I could say the same with the season 3 episode involving Pat (so much to draw from there, but the newcomer Pat steals it for me in just horrible to listen to, and that wasn't an easy win).
Any time Kennedy opens her mouth and words come out. That applies to Rona as well.So... Is there lines in the Buffyverse episodes that you dislike/hate?
I think the only line of Faith’s I don’t like is when Kennedy comes in and asks her for some of the crisps she’s got and she says ‘I’ll trade you for a pack of cigarettes....... sorry old habit’ (paraphrasing I don’t remember the full quote) . Eliza’s delivery is fine but it’s one of those lines that on paper sounds fine but in the scene it just edges into corny territory 😂Any time Kennedy opens her mouth and words come out. That applies to Rona as well.
I dislike how Eliza Dushku delivers some of her lines particularly during the body swap episode and in Season 7.
It's a cheesy line but half of Western philosophy hinges on the juxtaposition of sex/love and death - as does three quarters of the poetry canon. 😄 It kinda makes sense given Angel gifts her a book of Barrett-Browning's poems...and isn't Donne referenced in Help? Whedon's given to quoting Yeats and I'm pretty sure Eliot is a way into the structure of S7. That's Romantic, Metaphysical and Modernist ticked off. So...point taken but it's a cliche I can forgive because it has resonance beyond itself.When you kiss me I want to die. I genuinely don’t even understand what this means and I’m partial to some Bangel melodrama
