Chances are that nothing ever said on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" ("Buffy contre les Vampires") will ever make it into "Bartlett's Familiar Quotations," so Micol Ostow and Steven Brezenoff have attempted to correct for that shortcoming by compiling "The Quotable Slayer." This paperback also presents a more convenient alternative to flipping through your editions of "The Watcher's Guide" for the "Quotable Buffy" or the "Quote of the Week" for each episode, and it also avoids getting into ephemeral language, loose idioms, and mixed etymologies such as Michael Adams provides in "Slayer Slang: A 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' Lexicon." What "BtVS" fans get here is a walk down memory lane through the one-liners and choice dialogue from the seven seasons of the show.
"The Quotable Slayer" is divided into sections devoted to Quotable Slayer (1-14); Quotable Watcher (15-23); Quotable Scoobies, which covers Willow, Xander, Angel/Angelus, Cordelia, Spike, Oz, Anya, Riley, Tara, and Dawn (24-81); and Quotable Other People, which includes Faith, Wesley, and Other Others (82-88). For me the key section is "Buffy On..." which looks at the specific topics of Slaying, Authority, Knowledge, Big Bad, Fashion, Food, Holidays, Money, Fear (Itself), War, Evil, Sex/Dating (interesting order, huh?), Friendship, Love, Religion, Miscellaneous, and Quotable Music ("Once More With Feeling") and Quotable Finale ("Chosen") for the big finish (89-202).
For me that lengthy last section is key because I really was hoping "The Quotable Buffy" would be arranged so that you could look by choice Slayer quotes about vampires, parenting, dating, and other modern horrors. But I know that a "Bartlett's" style index where you can find every quote in "The Quotable Slayer" that uses the words "spell," "bloody" or "vengeance demon." If you are looking for a particular quote, say Vamp Willow's "Bored now" from "Doppelgangland," you can figure out the logic of the book well enough to find it pretty quickly. But you need to make allowances that quotes can both be by and be about different people and that sometimes the topic is more important that the speaker.
While walking down memory lane in "The Quotable Slayer" you will find a couple of mistooks that need to be corrupted and it is clear Ostow and Brezenoff are working, at least in part, from original scripts because there are variations and also lines that were cut from what aired. So "The Quotable Slayer" is not a must-have for your "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" library but it is certainly enjoyable on its own terms. Finally, let me take this opportunity to say that the time on "BtVS" when everybody stops and stares at Buffy because she makes a William S. Burroughs reference really should have happened way back in "Enemies" when Buffy said of Faith, "The Girl makes Godot look punctual," because I find it hard to believe that Buffy reads Existential drama (Glad to get that one off of my chest).

qui ont eu comme moi la chance de voir les épisodes en VO (sinon il est parfois difficile de retrouver "la traduction" qui en a été donné en français).
Des citations pour tout les goûts : drôles, émouvantes, dramatiques.
On regrette juste un peu le classement, qui sans être anarchique, est quand même un peu particulier.
Tous à vos claviers : un livre a acheter immédiatement!

The book is really good. The cover and the pages have a sort of "authentic" aspect. The quotes are, of course, great (thanks to Joss Whedon and the other writers). Fans of "Buffy", it's a must-have!
