Miss Edith Speaks Out Of Turn Drusilla’s lines from season 2 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer Cathleen Allyn Conway My mummy used to sing me to sleep at night. She had the sweetest voice, like cherries. It hums. I can hear it. It makes pretty colours. You sing the sweetest little song. Won’t you sing for me? Don’t you love me anymore? Come on. I will be put out if you don’t sing. Do you remember the song mummy used to sing me? Pretty. She would sing me to sleep, and the fairies and sprites would bite at my heels. What will your mummy sing when they find your body?
