Joyce: Dawn… she’s not mine is she?
Buffy: No. Joyce: She’s… she does belong to us though.
Buffy: Yes she does.
Joyce: And she’s important… to the world, precious. As precious as you are to me… Then we have to take care of her. Buffy, promise me, if anything happens, if I don’t come through this-
Joyce: No, listen to me. No matter what she is, she still feels like my daughter. I have to know that you’ll take care of her, that you’ll keep her safe, that you’ll love her like I love you.
Buffy: I promise.
