** The scene in which Xander confronts a JerkJock about him being a werewolf, only to turn out that he's just gay. And not only did Xander give him the courage to come out of the closet, but now he thinks Xander's gay as well.
** In "First Date" Xander actually says he wants to be gay, although it's because he's sick of falling for female demons.

** Their 'outing' in "Bad Girls" was pretty much a date, starting with Faith interrupting Buffy's class with a "hey girlfriend" and drawing a heart on the window, continuing to a bout of slaying, and ending with some very intense dancing.

* Buffy and Willow have a very developed relationship that strongly rivals the more prominent Buffy/Faith Les Yay. This is more noticeable in Seasons 1, 2, and 3 despite their romantic interests. It still appears from time to time in the final three seasons, specifically in Season 7's "Same Time, Same Place". Even ignoring the constant physical touches, the incredibly close emotional and supportive bond they have for each other is exceptional even amongst the other TrueCompanions, including constantly sharing looks at the same time and mimicking each other's actions (e.g. "Teacher's Pet").
** The interactions between Buffy and Willow in "Welcome to the Hellmouth" are very easy to see as "love at first sight", particularly note the longing looks when Cordelia runs Willow off at the water fountain and the decisive way in which Buffy chooses Willow, despite Cordelia and Willow separately telling her that she can't have both and that choosing Willow will instantly mark her as unpopular.

*** Xander seems way more into Riley than Buffy is, in general. His speech to convince her not to break up with him was surprisingly impassioned.

** At the start of season nine, Buffy wakes up from a wild night with Willow, the indication being they slept together. Willow doesn't deny this happening[[spoiler:, though they didn't]]. Throughout the series Willow has always had two love interests: the current boy/girl she liked, and Buffy.

** At the end of season eight Willow indicates there's someone else after splitting with Kennedy, with the implication that it's Buffy before clarifying. At the start of season nine, Buffy wakes up from a wild night with Willow, the indication being they slept together. Willow doesn't deny this happening[[spoiler:, though they didn't]]. And season ten works out Willow's new love interest and looks like it wants to hook her and Buffy up.

* Buffy and Faith have a ''ridiculous'' amount of Les Yay, which translated into a ridiculous amount of FoeYay after the latter's FaceHeelTurn. [[http://picasion.com/pic10/3982b277b8c7c528def298490f31ce98.gif This]] (very small) GIF sums it up, including Buffy's recurring dreams about Faith in which they 'make a bed' together.

Writer Jane Espenson even suggested to creator Joss Whedon that there was lesbian subtext between them, and Joss agreed that [[WordOfGod he did write in lesbian subtext]] even though it was unintentional.

** Their FoeYay is almost a direct mirror of that between Buffy and Angelus. Faith's attempts to bring Buffy over to {{the dark side}} compared to Angelus' manipulations, and the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2KuxH838kdk Buffy/Faith fight in "Graduation Day"]] being just as tense and emotionally charged as the Buffy/Angelus fight in "Becoming, part 2". Buffy is also willing to be enormously forgiving and understanding of Faith after she kills a man, lies about it and tried to kill Xander, just like her forgiveness of Angel after he regains his soul.

** Earlier in that same episode there is a scene where Faith is leaving the hospital and we hear a voiceover of Buffy saying, "I never stop thinking about you" before the scene cuts to reveal she's talking to Riley.

--> '''Faith:''' So let's have another go at it. See who lands on top.
** The very first thing Faith does after switching bodies with Buffy is ''take a bath''. Which included feeling herself (and that was just the stuff we saw).
