Dawn Summers : [signing] Where do we go from here?
Rupert Giles : [singing] The battle's done / And we kind of won
Rupert Giles : [singing] Tell me!
Spike : [scoffs] Bugger this.
Giles : That would explain the huge backing orchestra I couldn't see and the synchronized dancing from the room service chaps.
Xander Harris : As in burnt up? Somebody set people on fire? That's nuts.
Anya : I don't know. One more verse of our little ditty and I would've been looking for a gas can.
Rupert Giles : Well, clearly, emotions are running high. But, uh, as far as I can tell, these people burnt up from the inside. They spontaneously combusted. I've only seen the one. I was able to examine the body while the police were taking witness arias.
Rupert Giles : [singing] Will this do a thing to change her / Am I leaving Dawn in danger / Is my slayer too far gone to care?
Xander Harris : [singing] What if Buffy can't defeat it?
Anya : [singing] Beady Eyes is right, we're needed! / Or we could just sit around and glare.
Rupert Giles : What did you sing about?
Rupert Giles : [pauses] I don't remember. But it-it seemed perfectly normal.
Buffy Summers : But disturbing, and not the natural order of things, and do you think it'll happen again?
Xander Harris : I don't know. We should look into it.
Willow Rosenberg : With the books.
Tara Maclay : Do we have any books on this?
Buffy Summers : Well, we just gotta break it down, look at the factors before it happens again, 'Cause I for one...
Xander Harris : [singing] I've got a theory / That it's a demon / A dancing demon / No, something isn't right there.
Tara Maclay : Tha-That's right! The-The volume. The text.
Rupert Giles : What text?
Willow Rosenberg : The volumey text. You know...? The-The
Willow Rosenberg : report.
Xander Harris : The what now?
Tara Maclay : Oh, the-there's just a few volumes back at the house that deal with mystical chants, bacchanals. Might be relevant.
Willow Rosenberg : Yeah, we could, um...
Rupert Giles : Well, I'm a hairsbreadth from investigating bunnies at the moment, so I'm open to anything.
Willow Rosenberg : Great. We'll, uh, go check it out and um, we'll give you a call.
Tara Maclay : Yeah. This could blow the whole thing wide open.
