"Mr. Sarcastic Guy"
Nicholas Brendan as Xander Harris
|Alexander (Xander) Harris|
Xander Harris is one of the "Slayerettes"- Buffy's friends who help her in her unending fight against darkness. Xander is known for having a bigtime crush on Buffy, not noticing Willow as anything other than a friend, and eventually dating Cordelia (who knew?). He is not the world's best student, but plays the part of "Research Guy" in order to help Buffy, and also regularily adds his sarcastic wit to any conversation.

I was going to list all the best Xander quotes from each episode here, but the list got way too long (like I said, he gets a lot of fantastic lines), so I've moved it to it's own page. Look here for the best examples of Xander's fantastic wit and speeches relating to his character development.
