Weekly feature: Excerpts from original scripts

From, The Bachelor Party (Ats, season 1). The ep when we meet Doyle ex-wife Harry and Doyle almost get eaten.

Cut due to length:
ANGEL: How common would you say it is for modern peaceful demon clans o retain to old languages?
ANGEL: Harra's said Richard's family was completely assimilated, but I've been getting a very nonassimilated vibe.
DOYLE: Oh, fine. Cultural prejudice from a vampire. It's not like they go to your family reunions and complain the dip needs garlic.
ANGEL: You okay?
DOYLE: Do you think it's possible for somebody to love two people at the same time?
ANGEL: Yeah. I think so... just maybe not in the same way.

I wonder if Doyle meant him loving Cordelia and Harry, or Harry loving him and her demon fiance. Either way, interesting exchange.

Soundtrack for season 8.

Dark horse has published a soundtrack for season 8. The creators of the comics picked out 7 songs. Here's the list.

Btw, I'll won't post any more weekly "what to buy" posts. I'll just post when I have something interesting merchandise to show you.

Fine art manips

The multi-talented thedothatgirl has made some fine art manipulations, something I haven't seen that many off.

Tara as Ophelia

Fred and Wesley as the BlackBrunswicker

Willow as the Girl with the Pearl Earring

Echo as Isabella and the Pot of Basil

Check out her other art, both digital and drawn.

Weekly feature: Excerpt from original script

From A New Man. Buffy's apology got cut (but we got a funny joke about Ethan's clothes instead).

Image from screencapparadise(like most screencaps have been, that I haven't credited properly before. Bad me).

Aired version (source):
(Giles is back to human form, but has been forced to borrow clothing from Ethan. Not his style.)

BUFFY: You okay?

GILES: (sheepishly) Oh, um, uh, embarrassed, mostly. Ethan's wardrobe's not helping any. Uh, how did you know it was me?

BUFFY: Your eyes. You're the only person in the world that can looked *that* annoyed with me.

Original version. (Source.)

(crossing to Giles)
Giles? You okay?

Embarrassed mostly. Buffy, I don't
know what to say. You know I'd
never intentionally--

I know. And I'm so sorry about,
you know, stabbing you in the heart...

How, how did you know it was me?

Your eyes. There's only one
person in the world who can look
that annoyed with me.

The perfect birthday present for Buffy., Georges Jeanty's site, just had a contest in celebration of Buffy's birthday (buhu, I didn't win).

The point of the contest was to come up with a great present for Buffy.

See the winner and runner ups here and the present suggestions here.

Several of my suggestions didn't make it. I guess they were too dirty.

My favorite suggestion I came up with was:

"The Vamp. Because Spike and Angel aren't always around."

What do you think, wouldn't The Vamp be the funniest gift ever?

Weekly feature: What to buy?

I didn't post anything last week, because I had no cool merchandise to show you.

I still have a hard time finding anything cool, but this soap, or more precise, the description of the soap, is worth a post.

Buffy The Dead Skin Slayer Soap

...then Buffy staked Edward. The End.

I'm a Twilight-fan, but it's hard not to laugh at this picture.

Weekly feature: Excerpt from original script

From The Zeppo (BtVS season 3).

Xander has just grabbed one of the zombie guys while driving, that loses his head when he hits a mail box. The zombie gang watches Xander go.

Source. Part in bold was deleted:

Jack and the gang see Xander make the turn.

School! He's heading for the school!

That's it. No way am I bringing him
back after I kill him.

They take off at a dead run.

Weekly feature: Excerpt from original script

From Pangs (BtVS season 4).

The gang arguing about what to do with the Chumash spirit. Source. Part in bold got cut.

He's a vengeance demon! You don't
talk to vengeance demons, you kill them!

I didn't know you felt that way.

What? I didn't mean -- you're an
EX-vengeance demon, it's totally

(very hurt)
Sure. It's okay.


Anyway, he's a spirit, not a demon.

Buffy Thoughts

My friend Midwestern Watcher has made a Buffy podcast, go check it out.

Sunday, January 2, 2011

Weekly feature: Excerpt from original script

From A New Man. Source is The Watcher's Guide vol 2 (as usually with Buffy excerpts).

And this exchange between Ethan and the waitress at the Lucky Pint was also cut due to length:
WAITRESS(off napkin): 'You're not Roger Moore.'
ETHAN: 'God's truth. Tell her. Ripper.'
GILES: 'What? Oh. He's not Roger Moore.'
