…but fantastic news for James Marsters, better known as Spike from Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel. According to People, our beloved vampire has married his longtime girlfriend Patricia Rahman in a civil ceremony in L.A. civil court (pictured left).
The gorgeous couple announced their engagement last year and just now tied the knot. The best part about their relationship is the story of how they met, which is something out of a modern day fairytale.
According to Marsters, “I met her backstage and got her phone number, but then my jeans were cleaned out by the crew and they threw it out. I’d given her my number, but she took down one digit wrong. It took her six months to call all of the different combinations.”
Awww! It’s wonderful that the two still found each other after all of that. So sweet! Congrats James and Patricia!
In honor of James lets take a look at some of the best Spike lines from both Buffy and Angel:
“You’re not friends. You’ll never be friends. You’ll be in love ’til it kills you both. You’ll fight, and you’ll shag, and you’ll hate each other ’til it makes you quiver, but you’ll never be friends. Real love isn’t brains, children. It’s blood. It’s blood screaming inside you to work its will. I may be love’s bitch, but at least I’m man enough to admit it.”
Dawn: “Lurk much?”
Spike: “I wasn’t lurkin’. I was standin’ about. It’s a whole different vibe.”
[in response to being asked to fight a troll] “Yeah, I could do that, but I’m paralyzed with not caring very much.”
“You know you take the killing for granted. And then it’s gone. And you’re like, I wish I’d appreciated it more. Stopped and smelled the corpses.”
“What’s this? Sittin’ around watching the telly while there’s evil still afoot? It’s not very industrious of you. I say we go out there and kick a little demon ass! What, can’t go without your Buffy, is that it? Let’s find her! She is the chosen one, after all. Come on! Vampires! Grrr! Nasty! Let’s annihilate them, for justice, and for… the safety of puppies… and Christmas, right? Let’s fight that evil! Let’s kill something! Oh, come on!”
Spike: [while trying to ‘study’ Illyria] “Right, we need to set some ground rules. First off, no more punching me in the face! Secondly, when I punch YOU in the face, you tell me how you feel, so I can write it down on my clipboard.”
[picks up his clipboard, gets defensive]
Spike: “Third – no touching my clipboard.”
Illyria: “I enjoy hurting you.”
Spike: “Well we’re gonna have to fix that, ’cause-“
