Q: So, why do you write these strong female characters?
A: Because youíre still asking me that question.
Whedon quotes
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I took the road less traveled by and they CANCELLED MY FRIKKIN' SHOW. I totally shoulda took the road that had all those people on it. Damn.
Whedon
Let freedom ring, unless it's on vibrate.




Whedon Joss quotes
I think there's a lot of people out there who say we must not have horror in any form, we must not say scary things to children because it will make them evil and disturbed... That offends me deeply, because the world is a scary and horrifying place, and everyone's going to get old and die, if they're that lucky. To set children up to think that everything is sunshine and roses is doing them a great disservice. Children need horror because there are things they don't understand. It helps them to codify it if it is mythologized, if it's put into the context of a story, whether the story has a happy ending or not. If it scares them and shows them a little bit of the dark side of the world that is there and always will be, it's helping them out when they have to face it as adults.

SENTINEL: Is dead Buffy actually a robot?
Joss Whedon quotes
The English Language is my bitch. Or I don't speak it very well. Whatever.
Joss Whedon
People love a happy ending. So every episode, I will explain once again that I don't like people. And then Mal will shoot someone. Someone we like. And their puppy.
Whedon Joss quotes
The greatest expression of rebellion is joy.
Whedon
Veronica solves little puzzles because she, like all of us, cannot unravel the bigger ones.
Whedon Joss
I know there's been some debate about the DVD art. Just remember it's what's INside that counts, as I used to remind girls in high school constantly. CONSTANTLY - until I realized that I was empty inside. Empty and homely. Man, that's a rough combo.
Joss Whedon
Hello, I'm the writer and director. Now take your clothes off and get on top of Morena.




Joss Whedon quotes
I don't actually have anything against anybody, unless their belief precludes everybody else's. Ö I am an atheist and an absurdist and I have been for many years. I've actually taken a huge amount of flack for that.
Joss Whedon
Stay crunchy, even in milk.
Whedon quotes
The first thing I ever thought of when I thought of Buffy, the movie, was the little...blonde girl who goes into a dark alley and gets killed, in every horror movie. The idea of Buffy was to subvert that idea, that image, and create someone who was a hero where she had always been a victim. That element of surprise ... genre-busting is very much at the heart of both the movie and the series.
Whedon Joss
People with real power never fear of losing it. People with control think of little else.
Whedon Joss quotes
All worthy work is open to interpretations the author did not intend. Art isn't your pet ó it's your kid. It grows up and talks back to you.
Joss Whedon
My visions of the future are always pretty much standard issue. The rich get richer, the poor get poorer... and there are flying cars.
Joss Whedon quotes
Very occasionally, if you really pay attention, life doesnít suck.
Joss Whedon
I think that people need two kinds of fulfillment ó one in which you give and one in which you hold back. Part of fulfillment is need, is longing, is being unfulfilled, thatís the nature of tragedy and a lot of drama. Very often, what the fans want, they get. But very often, what they want, they canít quite have, because we want them to feel the way our characters felt...
Whedon Joss
I believe the only reality is how we treat each other. The morality comes from the absence of any grander scheme, not from the presence of any grander scheme.
