Buffy, shame on you. Why does a man do what he musn’t? For her. To be hers. To be the kind of man who would nev… To be a kind of man. And she shall look on him with forgiveness… and everybody will forgive and love. And he will be loved. So everything’s okay, right? C-can we rest now? Buffy? Can we rest?
I do remember what I said. The promise. To protect her. If I had done that… even if I didn’t make it… you wouldn’t have had to jump. But I want you to know I did save you. Not when it counted, of course, but… after that. Every night after that. I’d see it all again… do something different. Faster or more clever, you know? Dozens of times, lots of different ways. Every night I save you.
