- Every moment with stuffy Giles from season 1. I love it when he's at The Bronze with Buffy in Welcome to the Hellmouth talking about Buffy honing her skills. ("Yes, but you didn't hone.").
- Giles deciding to go in Buffy's place in Prophecy Girl.
- Giles giving Buffy a birthday part in Surprise.
- Giles being tortured in Becoming part 2, and then seeing Jenny.
- Giles facing Balthazar in Bad Girls, and his snarky commentary.
- Giles, in The Prom, telling Wesley he had the maturity of a blueberry scone and to just ask Cordelia to dance and stop "fluttering about".
- Giles shoving a sword (wasn't really a sword) through the Mayor's chest in Graduation Day, part 1.
- Giles giving Buffy the cold shoulder and then desperately going after her when things were already over in The Freshman.
- Giles being stuck in the chick pit, in Buffy vs. Dracula.
- Giles and Anya kissing in Tabula Rasa.
- "The Earth is doomed" from Chosen.
etc.

Giles has so many great moments !

But this quote comes to my mind first:

To forgive is an act of compassion, Buffy. It's-it's... it's not done because people deserve it. It's done because they need it. (I Only Have Eyes For You)

He has so many other lines that are really funny or witty. But this one is simply true.


And here are some of his funny lines:

You know what gets me? This is what gets me. Twenty years I've been fighting demons. Maggie Walsh and her nancy ninja boys come in; six months later, the demons are pissing themselves with fear. They never even noticed me. (A New Man)

All right. I'll just jump into my time machine, go back to the 12th century and ask the vampires to postpone their ancient prophecy for a few days while you take in dinner and a show.(Never Kill A Boy On The First Date)

I know music. Music has notes. This is noise. (The Dark Age)

You should never be cowed by authority. Except, of course, in this instance when I am clearly right and you are clearly wrong. (I Only Have Eyes For You)

Have you seen the new library? There's-there's-there's nothing but computers. There's not a book to be seen. (Lies My Parents Told Me)

Wesley Wyndam-Pryce: You're not helping.
Rupert Giles: I know. I feel just sick about it
(Bad Girls)

Testosterone is a great equalizer. It turns all men into morons. (The Pack)

We few, we happy few..... (The Gift)

I'm all for the funny stuff. Giles has many brilliant moments.
His pictures in Hush on the overhead projector will always make me laugh out loud.

But one of my favorites is actually his little speech to Buffy towards the end of Innocence.
- If you're looking for guilt, Buffy, I'm not your man. All you will have from me is my support... and my respect.

Giles gets some great lines in the show:-

The Dark age
Jenny: "Did anyone ever tell you you're kind of a fuddy duddy?"
Giles: "Nobody ever seems to tell me anything else"
Jenny: "Did anyone ever tell you you're kind of a sexy fuddy duddy?"
Giles: "That part usually gets left out. I can't imagine why"

Faith hope & Trick
Willow: "Are you mad at me?"
Giles: "Of course not. If I were angry I believe I would be making a strange clucking sound with my tongue"

Pangs
Buffy: "We don't say 'Indian.' "
Giles: "Yes! Right. Always behind on the terms. Still trying not to refer to you lot as 'bloody colonials.' "

The Yoko factor
Giles: "I'm great with the pacing & saying of 'hmmmm' & 'ahhhh' & Good Lord.' "

Lessons
Willow: "Is there anything you don't know everything about?"
Giles: "Synchronised Swimming. Complete mystery to me."

and of course....

Chosen
Giles: "The Earth is definitely doomed!"

:D

1) Cordy: Giles, one of these day's your gonna wake up in a comma.
Giles: *looks at her like she needs a smack upside the head*..."Wake up in a...?"
2) After Dark Willow gives a speech of being unstoppable. Then Giles magic's her ass across the room from the doorway. "I'd like to test that theory"
3) Season 2, when Giles walks up to Angelus after he kill's Jenny and picks up a piece of wood. He then lights it on fire and starts smashing Angel in the face with it. While doing a flailing motion, making it one smooth motion.

A few more have come to mind:-

After Babysitting Dawn (I was made to love you)
Buffy: "What did she make you do?"
Giles: "Well we listened to some aggressively cheerful music sung by people chosen for their ability to dance, then we ate cookie dough & talked about boys"

(The Dark Age)
Giles: "We should meet in front of the Hospital at eight-thirty sharp. I'll bring the weaponry."
Buffy: "And I'll bring the party mix."
Giles: (Stern look) "Don't be late."
Buffy: "Giles, have I ever let you down?"
Giles: "Do you want me to answer that, or shall I just glare?"

(The Puppet show)
Giles: "I'm sorry, there's something....your hair. Seems a bit odd."
Cordelia: "There's something wrong with my hair? Oh, my God." (she hurries off to find a mirror)
Giles: (Grinning) "Xander was right. Works like a charm."

Gotta love the sarcastic Watcher :cool:
