Who Said It: Angel or Edward Cullen?

Staff

"This isn't some fairy tale. When I kiss you, you don't wake up from a deep sleep and live happily ever after."

Angel's right. Sadly, Buffy doesn't get to live happily ever after. If only she were more like Bella … but then she'd be nothing like the Slayer.

"You really should stay away from me."

Couldn't this have followed on the heels of that last quote? It doesn't, though -- this one's Edward's.

"You're not a magnet for accidents -- that's not a broad enough classification. You are a magnet for trouble. If there is anything dangerous within a ten-mile radius, it will invariably find you."

Sounds a little like a description of the Slayer, but Forks doesn't have one of those. It only has occasional visits from the Volturi.

"Things used to be pretty simple. A hundred years, just hanging out, feeling guilty. I really honed my brooding skills. Then she comes along. Yeah, I get jealous. But I know people. And my gut tells me this is a wrong guy."

While that could almost be Edward talking about Bella's friend-turned-werewolf Jacob, it's really Angel talking about Buffy's friend-turned-corpse-turned-vampire Ford.

"She made me feel like a human being. That's not the kind of thing you just forgive."

Trick question! While you could argue that vampire-with-a-soul Angel was behind this quote, it was really vampire-without-a-soul Angelus, a whole lot meaner after one night with Buffy.

"Were you anticipating that I would hurt you? Were you thinking it would be worse? Do you consider the experiment a success because you can walk away from it? No broken bones -- that equals a victory?"

Edward said this one. Angel isn't the only vamp who started acting like a jerk after finally getting physical with the love of his life.

"It's not right! I don't want you to have to make sacrifices for me. I want to give you things, not take things away from you. I don't want to steal your future."

Remember when Angel moves off to L.A. and makes a clean break with Buffy? Well, this isn't that. It's Edward talking to Bella before their wedding.

"You moved on. I can't. You found someone new. I'm not allowed to, remember? I see you again, it cuts me up inside, and the only person I share that with is me."

Looks like that clean break wasn't quite clean enough for Angel.

"It is not a baby. It is a thing in the form of a baby. A dark, wicked thing that must be destroyed."

This isn't Angel talking about the product of one of Cordelia's alarmingly rapid, supernatural pregnancies, and it isn't Edward talking about the product of Bella's alarmingly rapid, supernatural pregnancy. No, it's Xena talking about the product of Gabrielle's alarmingly rapid, supernatural pregnancy.

"Because I could see your heart. You held it before you for everyone to see, and I was worried that it would get bruised or torn. And more than anything in my life, I wanted to keep it safe. To warm it with my own."

Aww, how sweet, Angel. Too bad the chances of a human-vampire couple making it after high school are slim to none. Unless you're Edward and Bella.
