Buffy: Nothing’s ever simple anymore. I’m constantly trying to work it out. Who to love or hate, who to trust. It’s just like the more I know, the more confused I get.

Giles: Well, I believe that’s called growing up.

Buffy: I’d like to stop, then, ok?

Giles: I know the feeling.

Buffy: Does it ever get easy?

Giles: You mean life?

Buffy: Yeah. Does it get easy?

Giles: What do you want me to say?

Buffy: Lie to me

Giles: Yes, it’s terribly simple. The good guys are always stalwart and true. The bad guys are easily distinguished by their pointy horns or black hats. And we always defeat them and save the day. No one ever dies and everybody lives happily ever after.
