Buffy & Joyce [Mother & Daughter] #7: "Sarah and I had a very special connection...it was just there from day one."

Welcome to the 7th Buffy & Joyce Summers
a p p r e c i a t i o n • t h r e a d


[Sarah Michelle Gellar • Kristine Sutherland]

Reasons We Like Buffy/Joyce
1. Because They even look like mother and daughter
2. Because We enjoyed Joyce's back seat mom-ing
3. Because Joyce understood Buffy's calling and choose to support her
4. Because Joyce bitched out troll aka Snyder
5. Because they are family and love each other no matter what
6. Because Joyce forgave her for burning down her school's gym
7. Because Hank left, Joyce didn't
8. Because a daughter always has her mother
9. Because it killed Joyce when Buffy ran away
10. Because Joyce was proud of her in School Hard
11. Because Buffy belongs with Spike and Joyce likes Spike better then Angel

Buffy/Joyce Quotes

Buffy: Mom, I've accepted that you've had sex. I am not ready to know that you had Farrah hair.
Joyce: This is Gidget hair. Don't they teach you anything in history? (The Witch)

Joyce: It's, uh, Nigerian. We got a very exciting shipment in at the gallery. I, um, thought I'd hang a few pieces in here. It cheers up the room.
Buffy: It's angry at the room, mom, it wants the room to suffer. (Dead Man's Party)

Spike: What, your Mom doesn't know?
Joyce: Know what?
Buffy: That I'm, uh... in a band. A-A rock band with Spike, here.
Spike: Right, she plays the, duh, triangle.
Buffy: Drums.
Spike: Drums. Yeah, she's a-a hell on the old skins, you know. (Becoming Part 2)

Buffy: You had sex with Giles? You had SEX with Giles?
Joyce: It was the candy, we were teenagers.
Buffy: On the top of a police car?
Joyce: I'll be downstairs.
Buffy: TWICE? (Earshot)

Buffy: Mom, the only way you get a new slayer is when the old slayer dies.
Joyce: Then that means you... When did you die? You never told me you died.
Buffy: No it-it was just for a few minutes. (Faith, Hope, and Trick)

Buffy: So, let me get this strait. I'm really back in school because the School Board overruled you. Wow! That's like having your whole ability to do this job called into question, when you think about it.
Joyce: I think what my daughter's trying to say is, "Nyah, nyah, nyah, nyah, nyah." (Faith, Hope, and Trick)

Joyce: You belong in a good old fashioned college with keg parties and boys. Not here with Hellmouths and vampires.
Buffy: Not really seeing the distinction. (Lover's Walk)

Joyce Summers: I know you're afraid. I know the world feels like a hard place, sometimes. But you've got people who love you. Your dad and I, we have all the faith in the world in you. We'll always be with you. You have got a world of strength in your heart. I know you do. You just have to find it again. Believe in yourself. (Normal Again)

Joyce: So what'd you do for your birthday? Did you have fun?
Buffy: I got older. (Innocence)

Buffy Summers: Ow!
Joyce Summers: What's wrong?
Buffy Summers: I spent a good part of my allowance on this new cream rinse, and it's neither creamy nor rinsey.
Joyce Summers: Life is hard, dear.
Buffy Summers: Don't I know it. Is that a split end?
Joyce Summers: I got the mail.
Buffy Summers: Good.
Joyce Summers: Which included a reminder notice about Parent-Teacher night. Thursday.
Buffy Summers: [in trepidation] That's good.
Joyce Summers: Which you were planning on telling me about...?
Buffy Summers: Oh, for... the last two weeks.
Joyce Summers: Uh-huh. So, what do you think your teachers are gonna tell me about you?
Buffy Summers: Well, I think they'll all agree that I always bring a pen to class, ready to absorb the knowledge.
Joyce Summers: And, uh, this absorption rate? How is it reflected in your homework and test scores?
Buffy Summers: What can you really tell about a person from a test score?
Joyce Summers: Whether or not she's ever going out with her friends again. (School Hard)

Buffy: And I'm sure he'll come over later lookin' for a little... Bible study.
Joyce Summers: Well, good. I mean, just as long as the two of you are spending some quality time with... the Lord. (Into The Woods)

Joyce: Get the hell away from my daughter. (School Hard)

Joyce: And honey?
Buffy looks back at her mom again.
Joyce: Try not to get kicked out?
Buffy: I promise.
Joyce: Okay. (Welcome To The Hellmouth)

(I was just wondering how hard it was for you to stay still while shooting The Body.)
Kristine: Oh, my. Staying still was about staying concentrated and breathing as shallowly as possible. The hardest part was not crying when Buffy came in the door looking for me. When she called out 'Mom...?' I just kept losing it.
(How was it working with Sarah?)
Kristine: Sarah and I had a very special connection...it was just there from day one. I adored her and I adored working with her. She is bright as a whip and thinks faster than just about anyone I have ever met. The first season almost all our scenes together were just the two of us, which was nice as it really cemented our relationship. (x)

Thanks. I spruced up the OP a little. We post in this thread regularly so I wanted it to be at least decent.

Me too. That Reddit AMA is a really good read.

Iirc, Kristine also said on Buffering that she was cast before she and Sarah ever read together. So their amazing mother-daughter chemistry was a happy surprise.

That's true.

Joyce did like Spike better than Angel!

Ironically Kristine Sutherland once said something along the lines of wanting Spike for herself

I was reading the BuffyWiki yesterday and apparently the name 'Joyce' was not revealed until the episode School Hard?! So Buffy's mom had no first name for all of season 1. I never noticed that if it's true.

OH my god WHAT!?! Really? I’ve never noticed that either. I feel like I need to go rewatch s1 just to confirm

Most of Joyce's scenes alongside Buffy only in S1, right? So Buffy probably called her 'mom' and there was no need for a name. Seems crazy that such an important character (now) would've once not even had a proper name.

I know Faith and Spike didn't even get last names until the games or comics and Joss was forced to cough them up.
