The Appetizers - [Buffalo Wings] (spicy chicken wings) and Those [Onion Blossom] Things are Spike's favorite appetizers. Being a vampire, he doesn't need food to survive; however, he likes to eat (and drink) very much.

Spike and Buffy are at The Bronze and he is about to tell her how he killed two Slayers, at her request Fool for Love:

And since I agreed to your little proposition, we can do this my way. Wings.Spicy buffalo wings. Order me up a plate. I'm feelin' peckish.

Spike at The Bronze, talking to Xander, who is eating peanuts Triangle:

They have chicken wings too. Also a sort of a flower-shaped thing they make from an onion. It's brilliant.

Later, the vampire even shared with Andrew the secret about making a good "onion thing in the shape of a flower" Empty Places:

See, the genius of it is you soak it in ice water for an hour so it holds its shape. Then you deep-fry it, root side up, for about 5 minutes.



The Chip - Behavior modification circuitry on Spike's head, implanted by the Initiative in 1999. It kept the vampire from hurting humans. In 2003, it started giving Spike painful headaches that would kill him eventually; he and Buffy asked for help from Riley Finn and the Initiative, and the chip, according to Buffy's choice (it could have been fixed), was removed (The Killer in Me).



The Blood - After being chipped, Spike started feeding off pig's blood. However, sometimes, he used to steal bags of blood from hospitals (The Weight Of The World), or go to demon bars like Willy's Place and give himself a treat:

Double-shot of O-neg, 'keep. And make it the good stuff. I don't want no freaking orangutan.



The Coat - The leather duster that Spike took from the second Slayer he killed, in 1977 (Fool for Love), was the trade mark of the "evil vampire". He left the coat behind, in Buffy's house, after forcing himself on her (Seeing Red); afterwards, he left Sunnydale to seek out a soul.

Without any reasonable explanation, the duster appeared at Sunnydale High. After listening to Buffy say that "he is holding back since he got his soul back" and that what she wanted was "the dangerous Spike", the vampire went to the school basement and found the coat inside a box (Get it Done). He didn't go all evil, at all, but the coat helped him to get back that old bad-ass attitude from the old times.

*Speculation on the Internet about how the duster could have ended up in the school basement: when Buffy and Clem met at the demon bar (Potential), they greeted each other effusively, as they were old, good friends; then, Clem said to Buffy he watched a show on the History Channel she would have loved. How could he know that? So, it's possible that during the summer, Buffy kept going to Spike's crypt to check if the vampire was back in town and Clem was still living there. She could have taken the duster to the crypt, and later, Clem gave it to soulled Spike, who was living at the school's basement. Also, the demon should have told Spike about what Willow had done to Warren, because the vampire knew about the flaying (Same Time, Same Place).

The original duster was destroyed in a explosion in Rome, when Spike and Angel went there looking for Buffy; however, Ilona Costa Bianchi, CEO of [Wolfram & Hart], not only gave him a new one, but also sent other 10 to Los Angeles with a fine assortment of shoes (Angel/The Girl in Question).



The Scar - Spike got his scar fighting the Chinese Slayer, in 1900 (James Marsters got it after being mugged in New York).



The TV Set - Spike likes watching TV very much; the poor thing had a crappy black & white TV set in his crypt, which sometimes used to show mostly static The Real Me:

Bollocks. Gonna have to pinch one of those satellite dishes.

His favorite show was [Passions] he used to be very upset when he missed an episode of it. When he was chained to the bathtub in Gile's apartment, it was provided a TV set for him. One day, Giles was on the phone and Spike, not able to turn on the TV, got desperate in the bathroom Something Blue:

Spike: Passions is on! Timmy's down the bloody well, and if you make me miss it, I'll-
Giles: You'll do what? Lick me to death?

Giles had a friend coming to town; as he would like them to be alone, Spike had to move to Xander's place Hush:

He better have cable 'cause I'm not missing Passions...

Giles bought the Magic Box because he wanted something to do; how bored had he been? The Real Me:

Giles: I was a librarian for years. This is exactly the same, except people pay for the things they don't return. It'll give me focus. Increase my resources. And it'll prevent you lot from trampling all over my flat at all hours. There may even be some space for you to train in the back.
Buffy: Boy, you've really thought this through. How bored were you last year?
Giles: I watched Passions with Spike. Let us never speak of it.

Once, Buffy left her mother and her sister Dawn with Spike, for the vampire to protect them Checkpoint:

Spike: Just don't break anything. And don't make a lot of noise. Passions is coming on.
Joyce: Passions? Oh, do you think Timmy's really dead?
Spike: Oh! No, no, she can just sew him back together. He's a doll, for god's sake.
Joyce: Uh, what about the wedding? I mean, there's no way they're gonna go through with that.

And it seems he liked [Dawson's Creek], too Out of My Mind:

Spike: Oh Pacey, you blind idiot. Can't you see she (Joey) doesn't love you?*

*In the Dawnson's Creek finale (May 2003), Joey Potter chose Pacey over Dawnson.

Spike liked to keep traditions, like be at home in All Hallow's Eve when real monsters aren't supposed to go out and watch the traditional broadcast of [The Great Pumpkin] All the Way:

Spike: Feel like a bit of the rough and tumble?
Buffy: What?
Spike: Me... you... Patrolling? Hello?
Buffy: Oh. Uh ... I ... should stay. Maybe tomorrow.
Spike: It's not like I don't already have plans. Great Pumpkin's on in twenty.

Spike also used to watch [Knight Rider].


The Blanket - Spike uses a blanket to be able to walk under sun light. The blanket, if not prevent him to burst out on flames, delays it a little (Pangs, Shadow, I Was Made to Love You, Gone etc).



The Car - The car Spike used to drive was a 1958 [Dodge DeSoto Fireflite]. He crashed through the "Welcome to Sunnydale" sign with the Desoto (School Hard and Lover's Walk) twice already, every time getting out and saying "home sweet home". We don't know what happened to the car; after Bargaining 2, Spike used to ride a bike, which he had taken from one of the Hellions.



The Last Bite - The last person Spike willingly fed off was a dead girl in the Bronze. He was with Drusilla, who killed a young couple and gave the girl to chipped Spike (Crush). He tried to bite a live woman later (Smashed), when he thought his chip wasn't working he kind of had to convince himself to do it but he didn't succeed anyway, because the chip actually didn't have any problem.

He fed off a dozen people (men, women and Andrew) when, already soulled, he was under the First Evil's control (Conversations With Dead People, Sleeper, Never Leave Me). He didn't know what he was doing, and when he found out, got very shocked and wanted Buffy to kill him.

Later, Spike, out of free will, bit Robin Wood just to scare the hell out of him the Principal had just tried to kill the soulled vampire (Lies My Parents Told Me). However, the next day, Wood didn't have any visible bite mark in his neck. So, either it was just a make-up mistake, or Spike didn't bite him, at all.



The Welcome Sign - Twice Spike crashed through the 'Welcome to Sunnydale' sign, with his 1958 Dodge Desoto FireFlite, when returning to town (School Hard and Lovers Walk). The third time and last Spike knocked the sign down was when Sunnydale collapsed, after he had, heroically, closed the Hellmouth once for all (Chosen).



The Paintings - Would those paintings on the wall we saw in Lurky's African cave mean (Villains)? Fans noticed that and published on the Internet the following photo comparison:

[Osiris]

Tara
Willow and tara

Warren

It seems we got the answer on season 7 episode Selfless, when [D'Hoffryn] told Willow that "the flaying of Warren Mears was truly inspired, water cooler vengeance, and Lloyd has a sketch of it on his wall."
