[Convinced he's going mad, Spike is tormented by The First.]

Spike:
I had a speech... I learned it all... Oh god, she won't understand, she won't understand...

The First [as Warren]:
Of course she won't understand, Sparky. I'm beyond her understanding. She's a girl! With sugar, and spice, and everything... useless. Unless you're baking. I'm more than that. More than flesh...

The First [as Glory]:
... more than blood... I'm... you know, I honestly don't think there's a human word fabulous enough for me. Oh, my name will be on everyone's lips. Assuming their lips haven't been torn off. But not just yet. That's all right, though. ...

The First [as Adam]:
... I can be patient. Everything is well within parameters. She's exactly where I want her to be. And so are you, Number 17. You're right where you belong.

The First [as Mayor Wilkins]:
So, what'd you think? You'd get your soul back, and everything'd be jim-dandy? A soul's slippier than a greased weasel! Why do you think I sold mine? Well, you probably thought that you'd be your own man, and I respect that. But you...

The First [as Drusilla]:
...never will. You'll always be mine. You'll always be in the dark with me... singing our little song. You like our little songs, don't you? You've always liked them. Right from the beginning. And that's where we're going, ...

The First [as the Master]:
... right back to the beginning! Not the Bang. Not the Word. The true beginning. The next few months are going to be quite a ride, and I think we're all going to learn something about ourselves in the process. You'll learn you're a pathetic schmuck, if it hasn't sunk in already. Look at you, trying to do what's right - just like her. You still don't get it. It's not about right. Not about wrong.

The First [as Buffy]:
It's about power.

Faith:
Whatcha wanna do to her, vamp? Huh? Somthin' like this? [punches Spike]

Spike:
(stands) Nice punch you got there. Lemme guess. Leather pants, nice right cross, doe eyes, holier-than-thou glower...you must be Faith.

Faith:
[shrugs and grins] Oh, goodie. I'm famous.

Spike:
Told you were coming. Bit of a misunderstanding here. I'm-

Faith:
Spike. [nods] Yeah, we've met before.

Spike:
We have? I don't think we- [Faith kicks Spike in the torso] Bloody hell! What're you doing? I'm on your side.

Faith:
Yeah? Maybe you haven't heard. I've reformed. [punches Spike]

Spike:
So have I. [punches Faith] I reformed way before you did. [Faith punches Spike] Stop... [punches Faith] hitting... [punches Faith again] me! We're on the same side.

Faith:
Please. You think I'm stupid?

Spike:
Well, yeah. [grins]

Faith:
You were attacking that girl. [punches Spike]

[Someone punches Faith in the face, knocking her down. Pan over to show it's Buffy.]

Buffy:
[innocently] Sorry, Faith. I didn't realize that was you.

Faith:
It's all right, B. Luckily, you still punch like you used to.

Buffy:
You OK?

Spike:
Yeah. Terrific.

Faith:
[to Buffy] You're protecting vampires? Are you the bad slayer now? Am I the good slayer now?

Buffy:
He's with me. He has a soul.

Faith:
Oh, he's like Angel?

Spike:
No!

Buffy:
Sort of.

Spike:
I am nothing like Angel.

Buffy:
He fights on my side. Which is more than I can say for some of us.

Spike:
Angel's dull as a table lamp! And we have very different coloring.

Faith:
Yeah, well if he's so good, what's he doing chasing down defenseless-

[The young woman that Spike was chasing stands up, growls, and attacks Faith, knocking her down.]

Buffy:
That's one of the bad guys.

Faith:
You should make 'em wear a sign.

Buffy:
We were never close. You just wanted me because I was... unattainable.

Spike:
You think that's all that was?

Buffy:
Please, let's not go over the past.

Spike:
Oh, no, no! Oh, let's hold on here! I've hummed along to your pity ditty. I think I should have the mic for a bit.

Buffy:
Fine. The stage is yours. Cheer me up.

Spike:
You're insufferable.

Buffy:
Thank you. That really helped.

Spike:
I'm not tryin' to cheer you up.

Buffy:
Then what are you trying to say?

Spike:
I don't know! I'll know when I'm done sayin' it. Something pissed me off, and I just-- "unattainable," that's it.

Buffy:
Fine. I'm attainable. I'm a-- I'm an "attain-a-thon." May I please just go to sleep?

Spike:
You listen to me. I've been alive a bit longer than you, and dead a lot longer than that. I've seen things you couldn't imagine, and done things I prefer you didn't. Don't exactly have a reputation for being a thinker. I follow my blood... which doesn't exactly rush in the direction of my brain. So I make a lot of mistakes. A lot of wrong bloody calls. A hundred-plus years, and there's only one thing I've ever been sure of. You... Hey, look at me. I'm not asking you for anything. When I say I love you, it's not because I want you, or because I can't have you. It has nothing to do with me. I love what you are. What you do. How you try. I've seen your kindness, and your strength. I've seen the best and the worst of you, and I understand, with perfect clarity, exactly what you are. You're a hell of a woman. You're the One, Buffy.

Buffy:
I don't want to be the One.

Spike:
I don't want to be this good-looking and athletic. We all have crosses to bear.
