Episode Quotes
Gunn: How come you do it? How come you're out here?
Angel: What else are we gonna do? I'll be around.
Gunn: I don't need no help.
Angel: I might.

Gunn: What you doin' here?
Angel: Skulking. Professionally.

Gunn: I don't need advice from some middle-class white dude who's dead!

Cordelia: (bandaging Angel) You should rest. You look —
Angel: Like I've been beaten and stabbed?

Cordelia: Ahh, I've missed that smell.
Wesley: Camembert, I believe.
Cordelia: Ah, what? No, money. I like to smell a little money once in a while.
Angel: She's not just saying that. Hide some in the office some time and watch her. It's uncanny.

David: Are you familiar with Dungeons and Dragons?
Angel: Yeah, I've seen a few.
Wesley: You mean the role-playing game?
Angel: Oh, game. Right.

Gunn: (after breaking into Wolfram & Hart) Whoo-Whoo! My God! They told me it was true, but I didn't believe them. Damn, here it is! Evil white folks really do have a Mecca!

Gunn: Give me one good reason.
Angel: It'll be incredibly dangerous.
Gunn: Okay.

Wesley: Demons with one eye, demons with twelve eyes, some with double vision. No blind demons. Perhaps Angel's discovered a new species.
Cordy: What, Hellen Kellerus homicidalus?

Lindsey: I get myself killed, that'll convince you I've changed?
Angel: It's a start.

Episode Goofs
No bandage was put on Angel's hand despite an arrow going through it and it looks fully healed. The rest of his body needed bandages, why not his hand?

When the vampires were outside to get Gunn's sister, they had a breathing masks on. Why would they if they don't breathe anyway?

Maybe they stole them when they stole the smoke grenades to cover their face s from the sun as they were outside and not in the smoke.
