Episode Quotes
Wesley: Cordelia - it's an ancient prophecy, not a Magic 8-Ball.

Wesley: Here's something.
Angel: What is it?
Wesley: The beast of Amalfif, a razor-toothed, six-eyed harbinger of death. No, wait. That's due to arise in 2003 in Reseda.
Angel: I would have guessed Tarzana.

(after a headache-inducing vision)
Cordelia: Pain... Killer.
Wesley: Painful Killer Demon?
Cordelia: Pain killer!

Lilah: Aren't we going to be late?
Holland: You never want to be on time for a ritual. The chanting, the blood rites, they go on forever.

Cordelia: Angel's going to die?
Angel: Anything else?
Cordelia: He certainly took that well. Is this that opportune time to talk about my raise?

Angel: Cordelia, I'm gonna fix this. Promise. I'm gonna get you back, I need you back.

Cultural References
Wesley: He sold his soul for 30 pieces of silver.

This is a reference to Judas betraying Jesus for 30 pieces of silver.
