Angel: I just want you to be able to have some kind of normal life. We can never have that, don’t you see?
Buffy: I don’t give a damn about a normal life! I’m going crazy not seeing you. I think about you every minute.
Angel: I know. But it’s over; it has to be.
Buffy: You don’t care any more, is that it?
Angel: It doesn’t matter. It doesn’t matter what I feel.
Buffy: Then tell me you don’t love me! Say it!
Angel: Is that what you need to hear? Will that help? I don’t. I don’t. Now let me go.
-I Only Have Eyes For You, 19.2, Buffy.
Angel: I’ve been thinking, about our future. And the more I do, the more I feel like us, you and me being together, is unfair to you. … You deserve more. You deserve something outside of demons and darkness. You should be with someone who can take you into the light. Someone who can make love to you.
Buffy: I don’t care about that.
Angel: You will… you have no idea how fast it goes, Buffy. Before you know it, you’ll want it all, a normal life.
Buffy: I’ll never have a normal life.
Angel: Right, you’ll always be a Slayer. But that’s all the more reason why you should have a real relationship instead of this, this freak show. I didn’t mean that.
Buffy: I’m gonna go.
Angel: I’m sorry. Buffy, you know how much I love you. It kills me to say this.
Buffy: Then don’t. Who are you to tell me what’s right for me? You think I haven’t thought about this?
Angel: Have you, rationally?
Buffy: No. No, of course not. I’m just some swoony little schoolgirl, right?
Angel: I’m trying to do what’s right here, ok? I’m trying to think with my head instead of my heart.
Buffy: Heart? You have a heart? It isn’t even beating!
Buffy: Don’t what? Don’t love you? I’m sorry. You know what? I didn’t know that I got a choice in that. I’m never gonna change. I can’t change. I want my life to be with you.
Angel: I don’t.
Buffy: You don’t want to be with me? I can’t believe you’re breaking up with me.
Angel: It doesn’t mean that I don’t …
Buffy: How am I supposed to stay away from you?
Angel: I’m leaving.
Buffy: Is this really happening?
-The Prom, 20.3, Buffy
Given that I’ve just finished re-watching series one of Buffy, and thus, am about to start series two, I feel like this requires posting. Their relationship has barely begun at this point, but oh, it gets so much better.
But also because it’s just incredibly beautiful.
