She is the slayer. The Buffster. The Slaymaster General. She has fought The Mayor, The Master and The First, and still found time to brush back her hair and land a timely quip.
The Whedon brand of '90s nostalgia may be what drives modern viewers to revisit the original show so often, but it's Sarah Michelle Gellar's Buffy Summers, first and foremost, that makes it worth watching. Blonde, blustery and ready to bemoan the injustices of growing up, all while running headlong into the open jaws of danger (and undead boyfriends). She redefined the action hero and beat the boys at their own game once and for all.
Having lived on beyond her many deaths and the final episode of the series, whether in the continuation or rebooted comics, or the soon-to-be rebooted show, Buffy is as relevant - and immortal - as ever. No matter what, she has always been ready to rally the Scoobies with a rousing speech, sing her troubles away and give as good as she gets.
Some quotes will be on the tip of the tongues of the most casual of fans, and some will be boggling for the twelve-episode-a-day diehards. Either way, Buffy still has a lot to say.
