Wesley officially joins Angel Investigations.
Angel: He's not from our dimension.
Wesley: Ah — they must come to ours via portals.
Cordelia: Portals? There are portals now? When did they put in portals? Don't we have enough on our hands without burning monster-fiends coming here?
Cordelia: I'm so glad you came. You know how parties are. You're always worried that no one's gonna suck the energy out of the room like a giant black hole of boring despair. But there you were, in the clinch!
Angel: I didn't...boring?
Cordelia: You used to be a person! Did you never party? Did people not gather in olden times?
Angel: I talked to people...Laura.
Cordelia: Laura thought you hated her. I had to tell her you were challenged.
(at Cordelia's party)
Cordelia: Hi! You having fun?
Angel: Sure. This is...um...
Cordelia: Your idea of hell.
Angel: Actually, in hell you tend to know a lot of the people.
Wesley: Angel, we need a plan
Angel: Here's the plan: I go in, start hitting people hard in the face, see where it takes us.
Angel: I got two modes with people: bite and avoid.
Angel: Still, I mean, the quiet reserved thing, don't you think it makes me, kinda,... I don't know, cool?
Cordelia: (Referring to Wesley) He was cooler.
Angel: Now I'm depressed.
Wesley: (to Angel) What say a couple of brooding demon hunters start chatting up some of the fillies?
Cordelia: Wow. Groveling isn’t just a way of life for you. It's an art.
Wesley: I do not grovel. (to Angel) Please don’t fire me. What happened yesterday was an anomaly. I’m very rarely taken hostage.
Cordelia: Did she carry you? You know like Carrie in the movies?
Cordelia is telling Angel about the psychotic killer girl in the move Carrie.
Cordelia: Can you hear me now?
This is poking fun of the popular "here me now" cellular phone commercials.
