Morley (cigarette)

Morley is a fictional brand of cigarette that has appeared in various television shows, films, and even video games that otherwise have no connections to each other.

List of appearances

  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Spike (James Marsters) smokes Morley cigarettes. Erroneously, the actor was quoted by Zap2it as saying "We smoke Morleys. We both smoke the same brand. We're the only two characters on TV that do," in reference to William B. Davis on The X-Files.
