“We saved the world. I say we party.”*

Ah, would that I were going to be around this weekend to partake in the Buffy Sing A Long at the Music Box Theatre on Friday and Saturday nights at midnight. “The musical episode of the long-running television show is a fan favorite and inspired such adoration that it just had to jump to the big screen. Buffy fans (and those who have yet to be converted) can watch it larger-than-life, surrounded by hundreds of singing, shouting, and laughing fellow Buffy-heads, with subtitles to help lead the audience in a sing-a-long with all the characters. Plus Buffy-inspired fun. $12 ticket price includes Goodie Bag! Advance tickets available through Ticketweb starting at midnight December 21.”

Unfortunately, I’m going to have to miss it, since I’ll be out of town. But you fine folks should enjoy it, because Buffy was always one of the best shows on television, and the musical episode is definitely one of the most entertaining ones.

Since I can’t hit up the sing a long, I’ll just post some of my favorite Buffy quotes for your reading pleasure, after the jump:

Giles: [after Anya decides to have an after-holiday sale] Brooms all around, then.
Willow: Or I could whip up a jaunty self-cleaning incantation. It’ll be like Fantasia.
Giles: We all know how splendidly that turned out for Mickey.
Willow: I think I’m a little more adept than a cartoon mouse.
Tara: And you have more fingers which is good… cause then there’s no need to wear those big, white gloves to overcompensate.

Willow: Ask her to dance.
Riley: Right. Dance. Wait. No.
Willow: What’s the matter?
Riley: I can’t dance.
Willow: Then, talk. Keep eye contact. Funny is good, but don’t be glib. And remember, if you hurt her, I will beat you to death with a shovel.
[Riley looks frightened]
Willow: A vague disclaimer is nobody’s friend.

Larry: I would love to get me some of that Buffy and Willow action, if you know what I mean.
Oz: That’s great, Larry, you’ve really mastered the single entendre.

Willow: I’ll give Xander a call. What’s his number? Oh, yeah, 1-800-I’m-Dating-A-Skanky-Ho.
Buffy: Meow.
Willow: Really? Thanks. I’ve never gotten a “meow” before.

Cordelia: When did you become Martha Stewart?
Buffy: First of all, Martha Stewart knows jack about hand-cut prosciutto.
Xander: I don’t believe she slays, either.
Oz: Oh, I hear she can, but she doesn’t like to.

Dawn: Lurk much?
Spike: I wasn’t lurking, I was standin’ about. It’s a totally different vibe.

Xander: Yep, vampires are real. A lot of ’em live in Sunnydale. Willow ‘ll fill you in.
Willow: I know it’s hard to accept at first.
Oz: Actually, it explains a lot.

Giles: It appears to be paranormal in origin.
Buffy: How can you tell?
Giles: Well, it’s so shiny.

    I was a huge fan of Buffy while it was on, but the musical show? Not so much. Why do so many shows feel they have to do a musical? From what I do remember of that episode, some of the gang wouldn’t have a prayer on American Idol.

    I read (ages ago) that Joss Whedon always wanted to do a musical, so he did it with a Buffy episode. I think it’s a cute episode, and it did move along the arc of Buffy not being happy about being brought back from the dead. I doubt anyone was worried about cutting a solo album after it was done, though. :)
