Have a good time! I know you're going to make friends
right away. Just think positive. And honey... try not
to get kicked out?

The tapes all say I should get used to saying it, "No"

I know, if you don't go out it'll be the end of the world.

Buffy: I can accept that you had sex,
but not that you had Farrah hair.
Joyce: That's not Farrah hair, it's Gidget hair. Didn't
they teach you anything in History?!

Buffy: I can't go the dance.
Joyce: Says who, is it written somewhere?

Buffy: Then what happened?
Joyce: I met your father.
Buffy: He didn't have a date either?
Joyce: He did, and that's a much funnier story
that you will NOT get to hear!

Buffy: What can you really tell about a person from a test score?
Joyce: Whether or not she's ever going out with her friends again.
Buffy: Oh, that.

Joyce: I wish you could talk my daughter into going with you.
Ampata: I tried, but she is very stubborn.
Joyce: Yeah, well, I'm glad someone else sees that!

Joyce: You get the hell away from my daughter!
Spike: Women!
Joyce: Nobody lays a hand on my little girl....
