Spike: Uh, I do remember what I said. The promise… to protect her. If I’d 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 can see it all again. I’d do something different… move faster, more clever, you know? Dozens of times, lots of different ways. Every night I save you.
