Buffy - "Get off."
Simone - "I would have turned a lot sooner. Just took me too long to find a vampire whose blood had more kick than that weak sauce upstairs."
Xander - "You used me. You said we could undo all this."
Simone - "Did you really think I was going to save...who was it? You can't even remember who you came down here to save can you?"
Xander - "Yes. I. Can."
Simone - "You can't win."
Buffy - "I don't need to win. I just need to keep you busy while my friends do the winning for me."
Illyria - "You must live."
Willow - "Gotta say, not what I expected from someone with the last name 'The Merciless'."
Illyria - "It is not what I expected either. Now go."
