Spike: We like to talk big... vampires do. 'I'm going to destroy 
the world.' That's just tough-guy talk. Strutting around with

got people. Billions of people walking around like Happy Meals 
with legs. It's all right here. But then someone comes along 
with a vision. With a real... passion for destruction. Angel 
could pull it off. Good-bye, Picadilly. Farewell,
