"Will I get so worn and wrinkly that I look like David Brinkley?" 1920-2003.

maybe i'm overlooking something, but what's his connection to Buffy?
Anya sings the line in OMWF. Also, Brinkley was an ubervamp extra in the finale. Ok, I made up the second thing. :)
Vamp_Insurance quoted his connection. It's a line sung by Emma Caulfield (Anya) in "I'll Never Tell" from the Buffy musical episode, "Once More With Feeling."
oh yeah... I thought that the quote was just something americans use, like 'there's something rotten in the state of Denmark' or is that more of an english thing?
Well I don't think one reference is enough to post this (also, it's not too respectful of the circumstances.)
We're very fond of David Brinkley in the US; he is (or was) almost as venerable as Walter Cronkite. Anya's line in "I'll Never Tell" was virtually an homage, in a sweet, funny kind of way. So I don't think the reference and posting is disrepectful at all. Brinkley will be missed.
One reference is enough to post this.
To be fair, when "David Brinkley Buffy" is put in as a search on Yahoo!, 1,950 results come up. I have no problem with the obscure post and I'm sad to hear Mr. Brinkley has passed away. The link on this site was the first place I heard about it.
A good friend, minutes after Brinkley's death was announced, sent me an email consisting only of the Anya line from "I'll Never Tell."

Obviously this is just a coincidence, but I found it a tad eerie and just a wee bit sad that Mr. Brinkley shuffled off the mortal coil just a few weeks after Anya herself did.
Ahh. Another Buffy line that now makes sense. I should make a list...

Now to find out who Tony Robbins is...
Tony Robbins is a motivational speaker, one of those relentlessly positive people trying to help you achieve more, reach your goals, yadda yadda yadda. He has a very funny appearance in the movie Shallow Hal that gives you a good idea what he's like.
