Reblogging my Thanksgiving Thursday Quotables from last year, since I really don’t think I can do better than celebrating with Buffy!
In honor of Thanksgiving, I thought I’d depart book-world for this week’s Thursday Quotables post and turn instead to one of my very favorite Thanksgiving moments, the “Pangs” episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Willow: Buffy, earlier you agreed with me about Thanksgiving. It’s a sham. It’s all about death
Buffy: It *is* a sham. But it’s a sham with yams. It’s a yam sham.
Willow: You’re not gonna jokey-rhyme your way out of this one.
Giles – “…It’s very common for Indian spirits to change to animal form.” Buffy – “Yeah, well it’s plenty uncommon for me to freeze up during a fight. I mean, I had the guy, I was ready for the takedown and I stopped. And ‘Native American’.” Giles – “Sorry?” Buffy – “We don’t say ‘Indian’.” Giles – “Oh, right. Yes, yes. Um, always behind on the terms. Still trying not to refer to you lot as ‘Bloody Colonials’.”
Wishing you all a very happy Thanksgiving, filled with friends, family, laughter… and pie.

I really should watch Buffy, I’ve only ever heard good things about it. Great quote 🙂
Buffy is one of my favorite, favorite things! I started a re-watch of the series earlier this year. I hope you give it a try!
Happy Thanksgiving! I loooove Buffy, great quotes 😀
Happy Thanksgiving to you too!!!
I never watched Buffy and we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving in Australia, but this made me smile and feel warm inside!
Happy Thanksgiving from Down Under 🙂
Thank you! I hope you’re having a wonderful spring/summer!
(Belated) Happy Thanksgiving 🙂 I hope you had a good day! I had my first proper thanksgiving in the USA this year, it really is all about food, isn’t it?
I’ve not watched much of Buffy, but I really should (I loved Angel, no sure how I got into that and not Buffy lol)
Oh, yes, it’s a very food-centric event! Gotta love a holiday that comes with lots of pie. 🙂 I’ve been rewatching Buffy from the beginning, and should probably do the same for Angel. They’re all so amazing!
