* The moment at the end of "Never Kill a Boy on the First Date" where Buffy expresses her concern that her job put Giles in danger and Giles answers that he went to the funeral home of his own free will and that Buffy isn't to blame.

* The moment at the end of "Never Kill a Boy on the First Date" where Buffy expresses her concern that her job put Giles in danger and Giles answers that he went to the funeral home of his own free will and that Buffy isn't to blame. Furthermore, he tells her a little about how he began as a Watcher and reminds her that she (or so they thought) ruined the Master's plan, helping her to feel that [[YouAreNotAlone she's not the only one who's had to feel those pressures]], and that [[YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre she did achieve some good things]].

-->'''Xander:''' The first day of kindergarten, you cried because you broke the yellow crayon and you were too afraid to tell anyone. You've come pretty far. Ending the world - [[{{Understatement}} not a terrific notion.]] But the thing is... [[TrueCompanions yeah, I love you. I love crayon-breaky Willow and I love scary, veiny Willow.]] So if I'm goin' out, it's here. If you wanna kill the world, well, then start with me. I've earned that.\\

* Willow coming out to Buffy in "New Moon Rising" is a really sweet moment, thanks to both Sarah and Alyson's acting and the way the scene is written. Buffy is surprised and understandably uncomfortable at first, but once she gets over the shock (which doesn't take too long), she's completely supportive.



-->'''Willow:''' No candles? Well, I brought one. It's extra flamey. Tara, I have to tell you...

Added DiffLines:

** Angel giving Buffy the claddagh ring as a gift is quite moving as well.


Added DiffLines:

* In "Passion," Buffy setting aside her anger at Jenny for deceiving everyone about her past and reasons for being in Sunnydale, in order to allow Giles to have a chance at being happy with her. A very strong but understated action that shows Buffy's loving side and her care for her friends.


Added DiffLines:

* A small moment from "Becoming, Part One." Kendra giving Buffy her personal stake, Mister Pointy, is a very kind gesture that demonstrates how meeting Buffy and the Scoobies has allowed Kendra to open up a bit to others.

* Spike's "you're a helluva woman" speech from "Touched".
--> '''Spike:''' You listen to me. I've been alive a bit longer than you, and dead a lot longer than that. I've seen things you couldn't imagine and done things I'd prefer you didn't. I don't exactly have a reputation for being a thinker. I follow my blood, which doesn't exactly rush in the direction of my brain. So I make a lot of mistakes. A lot of wrong bloody calls. A hundred plus years and there's only one thing I've ever been sure of. You. Hey, look at me. I'm not asking you for anything. When I say I love you, it's not because I want you, or because I can't have you. It has nothing to do with me. I love what you are, what you do, how you try. I've seen your kindness and your strength. I've seen the best and the worst of you... and I understand with perfect clarity exactly what you are. You are a hell of a woman. You're the one, Buffy."

"Touched," where we can see shades of the ensouled poet he once was.

-->'''Buffy:''' Yes you are... Look, it's blood. It's Summers' blood. It's just like mine. It doesn't matter where you came from, or-or how you got here. You are my sister. There's no way you could annoy me so much if you weren't.

* In "I Only Have Eyes For You", when Willow gives Giles the rose quartz that belonged to [[spoiler: Jenny Calendar]]. The understated acting of both Alyson Hannigan and Anthony Stewart Head is what really sells it.

** It's also worth pointing out that the scene showing Spike holding Buffy...it's part of a montage where the other couples are having sex. Everyone else is bonking, but for Spike it's enough to hold Buffy and comfort her.
