Spike: A bit worse for lack of use.
Buffy: You got your soul back. How?
Spike: It’s what you wanted, right? And now everybody’s in here, talking. Everything I did, everyone I… and him… and it… the other. The thing beneath… beneath you. It’s here, too. Everybody. They all just tell me go. Go… to hell.
