Monsters and their Molls. Just in time for Halloween, a site does a list of beauties and their beasts. Buffy and Angel make the list as do Oz and Willow.

Good article....if you click on the link "celebrity babes" and then on Sarah Michelle Gellars picture there is a nice blurb about her on that site too.
One question, though....why did Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes make this list?
Aww, that's sweet.
There's an Oz/Willow blurb on the bottom of the article too.
Love both the B/A one and the Oz/Wills. Very sweet.

Got a doopy smile at the Beauty and the Beast one too=)
Call me a nitpicker- but didn't Oz first see Willow in "Inca Mummy Girl" ar some sort of ethnic-fest-dance-thing (for the exchange visitors) not Halloween (as the article claims)? (Which was why she was dressed as adorably as an Eskimo!)
Yes, I believe that is true. When he see's her walk across the street in Halloween, he says..."Who is THAT girl?" He had already seen her in her Eskimo gear.
I've added the Oz and Willow bit to the subject line.
Disney's Beauty and the Beast? Better than Vincent and Catherine? Pffft.
Oz/Willow is definitely a favourite. The farewells to "Wild at Heart" and "New Moon Rising" are probably the two scenes in the Buffyverse most likely to make me cry--I, uh, in a, er, manly way, of course. (Oh yeah, and definitely "Inca Mummy Girl." I also love that Xander's costume in that ep was "An Italian pretending to be an American.")

(Okay, and the Angel/Cordy scene in "You're Welcome." And I hate that 'ship.)

I consider Buffy/Angel to be more of a rocketship than a relationship: their consummation and the consequences thereof are what sent the show into the stratosphere.
Disney's Beauty and the Beast? Better than Vincent and Catherine? Pffft.

Thank you Xane, I was just coming in to post that very thing. I do have a bit of trouble calling sentient beings monsters, though. I only considered Angelus a monster, not Angel. The rest of the list, YMMV.
Angelus was pretty clearly a sentient being...
I was trying to make a distinction between good v. evil.

Hellboy=good
Vincent=good
etc. etc.

Xander: "But vampires ARE monsters. They make monster movies about them."

Spike: "Well, yeah. Ya got me there."

One of my favorite exchanges.
I know that I'm a monster. But you treat me like a man, and that's.... Get your stuff, I'll be here

One of my fave Spike lines. And of course there's the monster exemplar, Frankenstein's monster who wasn't evil, just really misunderstood ;).
Newcj, I absolutely love that exchange as well. Cracks me up every time.

And I just watched Halloween last night and this writer got the Willow/Oz thing all wrong. Did they even watch the show?

And Vincent was not a monster!(stamps foot) He was an intelligent and sensitive guy who just happened to resemble a kitty cat. What?

Don't get me wrong, I love the Disney version as well, but it can't hold a candle (even if it sings and dances) to the Vincent/Catherine one.

I think it may be the only one they got right ;)
Along the "not a monster" track, just for nostalgia's sake, I found this dialogue from B&TB:

Hughes: Vincent... what are you?
Vincent: I am only what I am. If you cut me I will bleed. If you strike me, I will strike back. And if you keep me in chains, I will die.
