Gunn and Angel have a brief exchange regarding tracking Darla.
ANGEL: She went this way.
GUNN: You can smell her?
ANGEL: Tire tracks.
GUNN: Right. I saw those.
I love the scenes where Gunn "get's a little lost". Like this scene, with the xenophobia bit.

Willowswarlok, who's work I often show at this blog, is selling two of his best pieces, for a very low price (relatively low for his work, I still can't afford it).
A Faith 6" figure(as she appears on the cover of issue 6 of Season 8) and a X-men Phoenix bust.

After Wesley compares Angel's uniqueness to the rare volumes in the bookseller's shop(read dialogue here), not only does Lionel announce that he has three copies of the book Wesley requested, but he goes even further to unintentionally cut down Angel by admitting:
"Cover's coming off this one. I'll give you twenty percent off and a free bookmark."

I buy books I'm not likely to read, cards, tote bags, posters, action figures.
But I don't think I'll be buying this.
A 'Buffy The Vampire Slayer female figure horror Model Kit'.
I just wonder, other than her name on the headstone and a cross, where's Buffy?
She's hot, but the likeness is not there. Also, that you have to assemble and paint it yourself is a dealbreaker for me. I have no skill.
So why do I post the auction here?
I guess I need a excuse to look at hot figurines.

Dawn shares Willow's feelings on the delay in getting a response from the chemical testing of the Doublemeat burger.
"So much suspense. It's like taking a pregnancy test... when they do that in pregnancy test commercials."
That might have been my favorite Dawn quote if it had been aired.

Anya's false history to the Council went on a little longer in the script:
"And when I was seven, I had a pet dachshund that died from choking on a wiener, which I find ironic."

"Passion, it is born, and though uninvited, unwelcome, unwanted like a cancer, it takes root. It festers. It bleeds. It scabs only to rupture, and bleed anew. It grows, it thrives until it consumes. It lives so, it must die in time. Passion, it drives some to distraction, some to despair, some to vengeance. It drives some to murder and others to madness. Passion is the source of hope and the cause of despair. It is the source of life and the cause of death."
Here's the aired version:
"Passion. It lies in all of us. Sleeping... ...waiting... And though unwanted... ...unbidden... it will stir...open its jaws, and howl. It speaks to us... guides us... Passion rules us all. And we obey. What other choice do we have?
Passion is the source of our finest moments. The joy of love... the clarity of hatred... and the ecstasy of grief.
It hurts sometimes more than we can bear. If we could live without passion, maybe we'd know some kind of peace. But we would be hollow. Empty rooms, shuttered and dank... Without passion, we'd be truly dead."
I don't know about you, but I think the original version represents Angelus more. His hatred for emotions/passion can be cleary seen in the original, while in the aired version, he's just a story teller.
I understand that the voice over for the episode could have been read by any character, since it's more a lesson about passion, not a character's point of view of passion. Don't get me wrong, I don't think Angelus disagree with everything in the speech, but since it was read by Angelus, I wanted it to be more like the original version. Because I don't think he would have called "the joy of love" one of his/ours "finest moments".
