from Something Blue (Season 4)
|Next Clip in Episode|
(Bronze. Anya, Xander, and Buffy share a table)
XANDER: Geez, you mean Oz just sent for his stuff and didn't even call her? That's pretty harsh.
ANYA: I only wish I had my powers back. I'd liquify his entrails for her.
XANDER: That's sweet. God, poor Will. No wonder she's-
(Cut to Willow, dancing up a storm on the dance floor)
XANDER: -having a wonderful time.
BUFFY: Wow. Way to re-bound.
XANDER: I believe that's the dance of a brave little toaster.
(Willow sees them and walks over to the table, just as happy as can be)
WILLOW: Hey, guys! C'mon! This music's great!
XANDER: It's nice to see you brought your boogie shoes tonight, Will.
WILLOW: Yeah.. I-I know I've been sort of a party-poop lately, so I said to myself, "Self!" I said, "It's time to shake and shimmy it off."
BUFFY: Sounds like a good policy.
WILLOW: Yeah! And it works, too. You know, I figure, in the grand scheme of things, we're all just-
(Willow grabs her jacket and from underneath it falls a bottle of beer, it's contents foaming out)
WILLOW: Drunk.. I mean, that's such a-a strong word. Kind of a guttural Anglo-Saxon word. Drunk.
XANDER: Will, not loving the drowning of the sorrows.
WILLOW: Not drowning - wading. A-a-and.. See? Light. No big.
BUFFY: No big? Anyone remember when Buffy had the fun beer-fest and went one-million years B.C.?
XANDER: Sadly without the fuzzy bikini..
ANYA: Off topic, Xander.
XANDER: Right. Topic now. Will, how about you give me that beer?
WILLOW: No! Why should I? I've got pain, here - big-time legitimate pain.
XANDER: We all have pain, Will.
WILLOW: Oh, like what? "Oh, poor me.. I live in a basement." Yeah, that's dire.
BUFFY: Okay, you know what? That's it - I'm taking you home.
WILLOW: No, I don't want to.
BUFFY: Well, you'll thank me when you still have a friend in the morning.
WILLOW: I just can't stand feeling this way. I want it to be over.
BUFFY: It will. I promise. But it's gonna take time.
WILLOW: Well, that's not good enough.
BUFFY: I know. It's just how it is. You have to go through the pain.
WILLOW: Well, isn't there someway I can just make it go away? Just 'cause I say so? Can't I just make it go 'poof'?
