Appropriately, I watched a Buffy episode called, "Doppelgangland". Usually, when I watch this episode, I'm more focused on the part where Willow's doppelganger is pulled from an alternate universe...this time, not so much.
This time, my favorite exchange was:
Willow! Did you remember to tape
Biography last friday?
What did I tell you? Old reliable.
Old reliable? Yeah, great!
There's a sexy nickname.
Oh, Will, I didn't mean --
No, it's fine. I'm old reliable.
She just meant, you know, the geyser.
You're like a geyser of fun that goes
off at regular intervals.
That's old faithful.
Isn't that the dog that the guy has
to shoot --
That's old Yeller.
Xander, I beg you not to help me.
Will, I didn't mean it in a bad way.
I think it's good to be reliable.
Well maybe I don't wanna be reliable
all the time. Maybe I'm not just
doormat... person. Homework Gal.
I'm thinking nervestrike.
She's up and ready to head inside. Starts in, turns back.
Maybe I'll change my look.
Or cut class. You don't know.
(holds up banana)
And I'm eating this banana.
Lunchtime be damned!"
Some days, it is hard to be reliable. 'Nuf said.
