Sarah Michelle Gellar
. "I believe that Angel is her true love, and I believe she will never love anyone the way that she loves Angel. Will she fall in love again? Ya know, in her mind she thought she had fallen in love with Riley, even though it wasn't what it was supposed to be, but nothing will ever be Angel. And um, I'm hoping, at some point, they find their way back to each other. We'll have the Buffy Angel hour, we'll have two-hour episodes every week and I'll never go home at night, we'll go on forever."
I've been having that very same thought myself, we should have had two-hour episodes!

Of all of the guys I've worked with, I have to say that David is definitely the best person I've ever had to work with romantically and is definitely a better kisser than many of the other leading males I've had to work with."

David Boreanaz Quotes:
In the BtVS issue # 10
David Boreanaz is being asked what made Angelus so deadly to Buffy and he says: “Angelus’ biggest threat to Buffy was that he could hurt her more than anyone else. The way I see it, Angelus was as obsessed with Buffy as Angel was—his feelings were just as personal and”
it says he laughs here and then goes on to say. “Intense I guess He hated her so much because Angel loved her. He used that hatred to hurt her. He had Angel’s face and body and the people we love can always hurt us the most. He shared Angel’s memories so he knew just what to say to hurt Buffy the most and she had a hard time separating them…realizing Angelus wasn’t Angel. No matter how much damage he did, she couldn’t kill him and he took advantage of that.”
He then went on to say, “Sarah and Joss used to tell me I scared them when I was in ‘Angelus mode’.”
“I never did understand the whole Cordy/Angel thing... In my mind Angel's heart would have always stayed with Buffy!”
– David Boreanaz
In the BtVS mag dated 2003
David said coming back to Sunnydale was like coming home. I quote: “I love Sarah and filming those last two episodes with her was a blast...Even though I wish it could've been longer..but even getting me there was a chore. We're on different networks now so really the only reason it happened was cause the fans wanted it so badly. I thought it was perfect though, cause it left open the possibility for a happy ending for Buffy and Angel. The fans really seem to want that.”
In the BtVS mag issue # 6
David gives an interview for the magazine and in it he says, “For Angel, the love of his life is definitely Buffy. Angel's trying to be human again and Buffy brings that out in him.”
He talks about how Angel/Liam... the man lost his innocence early on and he explains about how Angel identified with Buffy in that way. They had both lost their innocence so young. Buffy because she became a Slayer and Liam because he became Angelus.
But, what's so great about this quote and why I wanted to share it with you is this... David goes on to say what a trip it would be to get Angel and Buffy back together again... Again, I quote: “Since the shows have separated, both characters have grown and developed so much, that yeah...it would be hard, but the underlying love is still there. That's what would make the mix so interesting...who knows if it would work out, I don't, but I know it would be great for the audience if Angel and Buffy were to get back together.”
in the SFX mag issued May 1999
David talks about Angel's layers as a character. He explains how Angel is (in many ways) any and every character he (David) could ever hope to play, because Angel has lived so long and has gone through so many changes throughout his long life/unlife. He talks and laughs about Angelus and how FUN that was playing Angel soulless. He says how he sees Angel developing as a character that had nothing in the way of self esteem... and then he mentions Buffy and Angel's relationship with her, but what I found interesting was David's thoughts about where Angel would go from there...
He says and I quote: “She (meaning Buffy) was this bright light in his life that...goodness that he wanted to be a part of. She represented the hope that one day he'll be redeemed, maybe even forgiven. Buffy loved Angel unconditionally and I don't think he'd ever had that before.”
He then goes on to say, again I quote: “Yeah, I think someday Angel could find that forgiveness, because basically he's trying now, but he still has to find himself first before he can expect redemption from anyone else.”
It's in the Angel mag and it's right after production began for Bones. (They have pics in it of him as Booth in the article)
anyways, in the interview David is asked, who he thinks he had the best chemistry with (in the Buffyverse) and he answers, “Definitely Sarah...”
Though, to be honest, he DID say OR Julie Benz
... (Darla) grumbles and growls and while I do agree they had chemistry...I think we all agree (David included) that Darla and Angel were nothing like Buffy and Angel! I guess just hate Angel with anyone, BUT Buffy, so I tuned that part out! LOL
But reading further David saves my faith by going on to say that “while he's had chemistry with all his leading ladies, Sarah, Charisma and Julie... (duh...the man could get sparkage with a block of wood!) he thought the characters of Angel and Buffy had the best spark with the fans.”
He even goes so far as to laugh and say, “Hell, while I was doing the show, I was still getting more letters asking me when Buffy and Angel were going to get back together than anything and this was years after our characters had separated, so what does that tell you?”
“When asked by SFX mag
, what he thought was the biggest change in his character since he left “Buffy”
David B said, “I think his confidence and growth in who he is today is Angel's biggest change, that and his idea of redemption... in the beginning his mission was all about Buffy. How could he help her, how could he love her and still stay away from her...it was all tied into one, but now I see him as a character that has his own identity ..,but he's still there... still the same guy he was in Sunnydale, but stronger. More independent.”
Then he was asked how Angel would fare if Buffy came back into his life today, and he said, (quote) “I don't know...I mean, hey, if Buffy stepped back into his life now... he'd be right there I imagine...yeah, he's changed since he left Sunnydale...and maybe he wouldn't be able to pick up the pieces of their relationship and make it work again, but he'd damned sure be there because he needs to believe...SHE was his whole reason for believing in something better to begin with, so I can't imagine he wouldn't believe in her now...”
He went on to say that he wasn't privy to the scripts (so don't quote him) LOL!! and he honestly didn't know what would happen if the two characters were ever reunited...(covering his adorable ass, I imagine..it's okay, David we forgive you!) Oh, and he (Ho hum) expounded on how Joss was the end all be all and how he didn't want to step on anyones toes with this interview, (jokingly said) but it was such a cute quote, I'm including it here...Hope you like it and the earlier interview quotes:) I LOVE his honesty, even when he might not have the green light to say it:) Thank you David, we love U!!
“Angel is a character with a lot of shadows. He’s got a dark side and a good side. Buffy brought out the good in him. She made him want to be a better man, that’s what I think was so special about them. I mean here you have a character that has so much darkness in him, but this one girl, who is so bright and alive...Because of her and his love for her he becomes a better man. That’s amazing.”
- David Boreanaz
“I always found the Angel/Cordy relationship a bit strange...”
He does again mention how it worked due to his chemistry with Charisma. (but as I've discovered after watching David in movies and T.V...he could have chemistry with a fence post! seriously the man is that hot!!)
But in the interview he goes on to say, that though Angel/Cordy relationship worked due to his chemistry with Charisma, it wasn't anything compared to what it was like with the Angel/Buffy relationship. Then he says, again a quote... “I felt like Angel's heart is with Buffy and always would be. I think the Angel/Cordy relationship was just a mirror to what the Angel/Buffy relationship was to him! It worked, but it wasn't where his heart was.”
In it, he's asked how he felt about returning to BtVS for the last two episodes and he says, again a quote, “It was great to work with Sarah again. We both knew that to put those two characters (Buffy & Angel) together again would be incredible, and it was. It was what the fans wanted too and we were excited to give them that!”
I loved that! Not only did he express his happiness to give the fans what they wanted, (and we did
) he mentioned how he understood the connection between B&A. David just seems to totally understand how those characters affected their fans and I really appreciate that. I also appreciated was that he says SMG cared about how Buffy went out too. She knew the fans would want B/A to have hope for a future and was excited about giving them that. (I've read where she's gotten a lot of flak about being a diva, so his comments were special in regards to her too and as always he's just a great guy and a true gentleman.)
I'd like to say a sincere thank you to David for giving all of us Angel AND Angelus:) but, I also want to thank Sarah Michelle Gellar for giving us Buffy too! Oh, and I guess I should thank God for giving them their natural chemistry together, without it, the amazing love affair that is Angel/Buffy wouldn't exist :)
These quotes have been sourced from just about all over. If I find anymore. I'll add them.

from FF.net for the David quotes.
Hey! My friend and I were obviously discussing the likes of DB/SMG since she's also another B/A crazy gal and she relayed this quote that, I just thought was so adorable and had to share!
Hehe yeah I too would love to know what DB and SMG would think of Buffy and Angel’s latest reunion, hehe I could just see the two of them leaning over issue 34 and going ‘wow that’s hot,’ and barely containing blushes. Hehe I was watching an interview waaaaaaaaaaaaaay back in the day when David was in his last year with Buffy and the interviewer (I want to say it was Entertainment Tonight?) says:
“Well it hardly seems fair that in the 3 years of Buffy we got so very few moments of intimacy between Buffy and Angel”.
“Well while few and far between I think we got a few really nice ones, there’s the beginning of ‘The Prom’, graveyard picnic in ‘Choices’ and you know there’s a few other cute ones."
(smiling at Sarah as she totally missed the way the interviewer says intimacy): "She (interviewer) means the sex."
"Oh. Oh! Well, you know, can’t really go there, perfect happiness thing remember? My goodness, everyone is always talking about more Buffy and Angel sex. Besides we gave the one already."
"Surprise? No, wait, Innocence."
"I remember that day, not as romantic and beautiful as it looked. Set was very hot, with the lights and all bat-signaling, and we ended up all sweaty limbed after a few minutes and there’s the ‘okay hand here, leg there, head this way’ and we are sliding off each other like slip and slides."
"That’s not how I remember it."
"Well how do you remember it?"
"Slip and slide yes, there was also the candle wax, riding crops, I think she called me daddy a few times… Just too hot for TV."
(blushes and laughs) "Yeah that’s really how it happened."
