It’s what you wanted, right? And—and now everybody’s in here, talking. Everything I did… everyone I— and him… and it… the other, the thing beneath— beneath you. It’s here too. Everybody. They all just tell me go… go… to hell. Buffy, shame on you. Why does a man do what he mustn’t? For her. To be hers. To be the kind of man who would never… to be a kind of man. She shall look on him with forgiveness, and everybody will forgive and love. He will be loved. So everything’s OK, right? Can we rest now? Buffy… can we rest?

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.

Dozens of times, lots of different ways. Every night I save you.
