      there's evil still afoot? It's not very industrious of you. I say

      without your Buffy, is that it? Let's find her! She is the chosen
      one, after all. Come on! Vampires! Grrr! Nasty! Let's annihilate
      them, for justice, and for... the safety of puppies... and
      Christmas, right? Let's fight that evil! Let's kill something!
      Oh, come on!
