Episode Quotes
Cordelia: If they know what's good for them, the PTB better just stay out of my head.
Angel: The Powers That Be. You had a vision.
Cordelia: Boy! Howdy. And guess what, you know how they look painful? Well, they feel a whole lot worse!

Angel: Another door opens. You're my link to the Powers now.
Cordelia: I am nobody's link to anybody. I lost control of my entire central nervous system getting that stupid vision and I'm not certain, but I think I may have drooled a little at the first audition I've had in weeks.
Angel: What was it?
Cordelia: Ah, Stain-Be-Gone. It was a national, no less. They'll probably never call me again.
Angel: The vision! What was the vision?
Cordelia: Oh. Pfft! Who knows. It was a thing!

Angel: Wesley.
Wesley: I’ll wager you never thought you’d see me again.
Angel: To tell you the truth, I hadn’t given it much thought one way or the other. What are you...?
Wesley: Hup-up-up! I’m the one asking questions here. And I think it only fair to warn you, any sudden movement and I’ll be forced to...
(Angel knocks away Wesley’s crossbow)
Wesley: Right. You had a question?

Barney: Little trick - picture everybody...
Cordelia: In their underwear.
Barney: I was going to say dead. But hey, if that underwear thing works for ya...

Cordelia: Are you all right, Wesley?
Wesley: No. It's these pants. They tend to chafe one's...legs.

Cordelia: Are you working with Angel?
Wesley: A lone wolf, such as myself, never works with anyone. I'm merely allowing Angel to assist me.
Cordelia: Oh, wow.
Wesley: I'm a Rogue Demon Hunter now.
Cordelia: Wow. What's a rogue demon?

Barney: If you're a vampire, why aren't you in your coffin?
Angel: Coffin. I hate that stereotype. You're a demon and you don't know anything about vampires?
Barney: Only what I learned from TV.
Angel: (rather irritably) Vampires don't sleep in coffins. It's a misconception made popular by hack writers and ignorant media. In fact, you know, we can and do move around during the day. As long as we avoid direct sunlight. Got it?
Barney: Gotten. Sorry didn't want to push any sore spots.

Wesley: You... butcher an innocent girl, will you? I'm going to thrash you within an inch of your life. And then, I'm going to take that inch.

Cordelia: Damn! I can't believe he did this to me.
Angel: Who did what?
Cordelia: Doyle! I thought our kiss meant something, and instead he used that moment to pass it on to me. Why couldn't it have been mono or herpes?

Cordelia: Not that he didn't have it coming. He was a horrible, evil monster.
Angel: He did kill a lot of people.
Wesley: Viciously mutilated their corpses.
Cordelia: Plus, he started the bidding on me at a paltry $2,000.

Cultural References
Barney: I don't think he is tracking me down to tell me about me winning Publisher's Clearing House.

Barney is making reference to the program on TV that lets oridinary people win by the prize being delivered on TV to a person's house at random.
