"Maybe it's the syphilis talking, but some of that made sense."

"Buffy: But even though it's hard, we have to end this. Yes, he's been wronged, and I personally would be ready to apologize, but I...

Spike: You won. All right? You came in and you killed them and you took their land. That's what conquering nations do. It's what Caesar did, and he's not goin' around saying, "I came, I conquered, I felt really bad about it." The history of the world is not people making friends.

Spike: Listen to you. How you gonna fight anyone with that attitude? 
Willow: We don't wanna fight anyone.

Xander: Maybe it's the syphilis talking, but some of that made sense."
