GILES: At this point, a cynical person might think that you're offering just what we need when we need it most.
SPIKE: That person'd be right, Rupert. Supply and demand. And, it won't be cheap this time.
GILES: What do you want?
SPIKE: Hmm, year's supply of blood, guaranteed protection, merry bushels of cash, and--most important--a guarantee that I'm not to be in any way slain.
SPIKE: With a smile and a nod from you? Sorry. Not close to good enough. This deal's with the Slayer.
GILES: I'll tell her.
SPIKE: Oh, you'll tell her! Great comfort, that. What makes you think she'll listen to you?
SPIKE: Very convincing.
GILES: I'm her Watcher.
SPIKE: I think you're neglecting the past tense there, Rupert. Besides, she barely listened to you when you were in charge. I've seen the way she treats you.
(GILES grabs a bottle off his bar and starts to pour himself a drink.)
GILES: Oh, yes? And, how's that?
SPIKE: Very much like a retired librarian. Look, I've got what she wants as long as she has what I want. Spread the word. She knows where to find me.
GILES: I'll think about it.
