Dracula - "Manservant, it is time for you to leave."
Dracula - "The world cycles... each generation must negate the generation before it. Overstay your welcome, and you'll become a tall tale for children. Fodder for terrible films and television serials. All because you committed the one cardinal sin you aged."
Dracula - "You're not frightened?
Buffy - "No."
Dracula - "Ah." [turns into bat] "How about now?"
Buffy - "No."
Dracula - [turns into wolf] "How about now?"
Buffy - "No."
Dracula - [turns into fog] "How about now?"
Buffy - "I'm not even sure what you are."
Dracula - "I am fog."
Buffy - "Oh. Then no."
Dracula - "Ah, yes... Miss Summers and her Slayers. Heroes such as yourselves would never be frightened by something as commonplace as... [turns into bees] a swarm of bees!"
Buffy - "I think I'm allergic to bees. No, wait — I'm allergic to soy."
