Buffy quotes[edit]

I hope you don't mind, but I did something I haven't done since I created the Buffy quote page — I removed one of the quotes you added:

Riley: The other stuff what I do I can't tell you.
Buffy: Well then let me.

I did it because I couldn't find anything particularly pithy or amusing about the two lines without including a large chunk of surrounding dialog. (The entire scene is an important one between Buffy and Riley, but it's hard to pick a short selection of the 30 or so lines of dialog that conveys the import.) Since the Buffy quote article is extremely long (it's the largest on Wikiquote, by a solid margin!), it's rather important to include concise quotes with special humor or emotional value. (Some people also like to add some of the important but lengthier dramatic monologues, too, which I haven't opposed, but which I hope people keep to a reasonable number, or else the page will get too large to load!)

If you don't agree with me, I would suggest you post a comment on the Buffy talk page, so other readers and contributors can consider the issue, too. You can also talk to me on my own talk page, especially if you would like assistance with creating and participating in Talk discussions.

I also formatted your other quotes, revised the text to match actual dialog, and added some surrounding text to provide the quotes with enough context and humorous passages to be of interest to non-fans, all of which is standard practice on these TV quote pages. Let me know if you have any questions. — Jeff Q 12:32, 6 Jan 2005 (UTC)
