Episode Quotes
Angel: That's great. It's nice. You moved on. I can't. You found someone new. I'm not allowed to, remember? I see you again and it cuts me up inside and the person I share that with is me! You don't know me anymore, so don't come down here with your great new life and expect me to do things your way! Go home!
Buffy: See. Faith wins again.

Angel: He'll come around.
Cordelia: Wesley? Sure. People always get a little funny right after they've been sadistically tortured. Well, you'd know.

Faith: Buffy, I am so s-
Buffy: If you apologize to me, I will beat you to death.

Mercer: This is getting ridiculous. The first assassin kills the second assassin, who was sent to kill the first assassin, who didn't assassinate anyone, until we hired the second assassin to assassinate her.
Lindsey: All right. This obviously isn't working.

Angel: For a taciturn shadowy guy, I got a big mouth.

Angel: It wasn't too long ago that you were the one making the case for her rehabilitation.
Wesley: It wasn't too long ago that I had full feeling in my right arm.

Wesley: I do not, however, understand why the woman who brutally tortured me last night, this morning gets pastries.

Buffy Anne Summers: She tried to kill you.
Angel: That was just a cry for help.
Buffy Anne Summers: A cry for help is when you say "help" in a loud voice
