Episode Quotes
Doyle: Tell me stuff.
Angel: What stuff?
Doyle: About Cordelia.
Angel: Well, I - I know she can't type or file. Until today I had some hope regarding the phone.

Angel: (to Doyle) People called them the Cordettes. A bunch of girls from wealthy families. They ruled the high school, decided what was in, who was popular. It was like the Soviet Secret Police if they cared a lot about shoes.

Doyle: It's all about money. What about friendship and family and all those things that are priceless, like they say in that credit card commercial?

Doyle: Hey, your high school diploma is all burned.
Cordelia: Yeah, it was a rough ceremony.

(the word "DIE" appears in blood on the wall in Cordelia's apartment)
Cordelia: I am not giving up this apartment!
Angel: It's haunted.
Cordelia: It's rent controlled.
Doyle: Cordy, it says "DIE"!
Cordelia: Hey, maybe it's not done yet. Maybe it's "DIET". That's friendly. A little judgemental, sure.

Cordelia: I'm sorry.
Maude: You better be sorry, you stupid little bitch.
Cordelia: I'm a bitch.
Maude: Take off the bed sheets, make a noose. Go on. It'll all be over soon.
Cordelia: I'm not a snivelling, whiny little cry-Buffy. I'm the nastiest girl in Sunnydale history. I take crap from no one.
Maude: You're going to make yourself a noose and put it around--
Cordelia: Back off, polygrip! You think you're bad, all mean and haunty, picking on poor, pathetic Cordy? Well, get ready to haul your wrinkly translucent ass out of this place, because, lady, the bitch is back.
