Choose Your Dinner Companion: Julie Benz, Juliet Landau, or Robia La Morte?

OK, Buffy fanatics, if you had the opportunity to dine with one of these fine ladies (but only one), whom would you choose, and why? If you've met one of them, please share your experience.

How's that for an odd thread subject?

In character: Juliet Landau
Out of character: Robia La Morte

I prefer Robia overall, but Drusilla really does it for me.

Julie Benz if she agreed not to speak and wore the cheerleader outfit. Otherwise Robia.

Juliet is just too weird looking. She has some good moments where she looks kinda hot, but they are few and far between.

Tough choice...but I'd probably pick Juliet Landau and she would have to be in character. That would make for some interested dinner conversation.

No contest. Julie Benz can be my dinner guest any night of the week she wants.

Quoth Rogue588 <HR SIZE=1>Well, lookee here...I found something better to do <HR SIZE=1>

Excellent work, my friend. You were one step away from me calling you "Rouge" all the time like someone else around here.

I should note that none of these women will be "in character" at this figurative dinner.

Julie Benz's babydoll voice gets me every time.

But out of those choices... Julie Benz.

Very hard choice. Definitely between Julie Benz or Juliet Landau, but I think that I will have to go with Benz (although I love the Landau accent)...

Amy Acker if she were an option, but Robia La Morte otherwise. As for why...well, I have a type, and they're it.

Very tough choice especially now that I am in the middle of watching Angel season 2, Julie Benz is soo sexy in that season, and just finished Buffy season 2...again. If I had to choose one I would say Robia simply because there is something mysterious about her.

If I had more options I would choose Amy Acker!

Juliet Landeau, because she is creepy and probably fun to hang around with.

Juliet Landau, because I was swept away by her in Ed Wood.

Why'd you enter the contest if you didn't know which you'd pick? (I assume we're playing "Help das pick his contest prize" or something similar).

Having only watched the Buffy and Angel that's available on DVD, I'd have to go with Julie Benz. That's ebcause my goal would be to get a bigger picture of what it's like to work on the shows. Juliette Landau was only in a few episodes of Angel that I've seen, and even though she had a whole season on Buffy, she was relatively peripheral during that season. On the other hand, if Dru shows up more later (and you've seen those episodes), it might make sense to pick her. Robia La Morte was fairly involved with the series for about two-thirds of a season and then left, so you wouldn't get a view of the shows over time.

Dinner with any of them would be awesome, though.
