I Spent Much of My Youth Glued to “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”

Tuesday nights were an exciting time to catch up on the Scooby Gang. Sure, Buffy the Vampire Slayer had some pretty hilarious and punny moments. But there were many moments that the show hit you right in the feels. Some moments were so inspiring, you felt empowered to get out of bed and conquer the world. After all, if a blonde cheerleader from Sunnydale could beat the undead, who’s to say that I can’t slay my own real-life demons?

Everyone needs a pick-me-up every now and then. So, here are 5 quotes from Buffy the Vampire Slayer for moments you will need them most.
