#Quote
1I never, ever thought that Xander should be in construction. [At the science fiction and fantasy convention DragonCon in 2006, when asked if there was ever a time when he thought that Xander was written to be "out of character."]
2We had better music at Sunnydale's prom than at my real-life prom. And at my prom, I didn't really have a date, which is sort of what happens to Xander. At my real prom, I kind of ducked out the hotel ballroom and watched a Dodger game until 3 a.m. because it went about 22 innings. And my friends were saying, 'Oh no! Where'd Nick go?' I think I was trying to get people to worry about me. That whole teenage angst thing. [New York Times, May 9, 1999]
3[on Joss Whedon's decision to end "BtVS" because of handling too many projects:] Joss always wanted to be attached to it, and as his schedule's becoming thinner, it's harder for him to be a part of the show. It was his baby, so if he can't be a part of it like he wants to, then it's just not gonna run. It's gonna be really sad for me after 144 episodes. It was my first job. I went through a lot of changes personally in that time, so it's gonna be a teary goodbye. [May 2, 2002]
4[on preparing to finish the BtVS series:] It sucks, because with how this year ended, and with what's gonna happen next year, it's gonna go out on top. We're having a lot of fun doing it. This last year was my most fun year doing the show. But that's life in showbiz, and I'll just do something else. [May 2, 2002]
5[on why "Buffy" never won Emmy Awards:] "It's because it's called Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997). I mean, we've even joked about how we should do an episode where Sarah [Michelle Gellar] is a doctor, I'm a lawyer ... get every angle they vote for just to give them a big one of those [raises his middle finger]."
6I want people to say, 'Nicholas Brendon, he's supposedly the nicest guy in the world.' I want to do good work, but more than that, I want to stay a good human being. That's more important than any character I play.
