Episode Quotes
Cordelia: It's us. We haven't seen you all day. We were just wondering if everything was, you know, copasetic?
Angel: I didn't go bad, Cordelia.
Cordelia: Oh, I was never worried about that, Boss. Of course, Mr. Fussypants always assumes the worst.

Angel: You're gonna feel it, you know. What you did. That man you got killed.
Darla: Please - he was an actor.
Angel: I'm serious.
Darla: Like a heartache and just about as much fun.
Angel: Darla, you hurt anyone else and I'll kill you.
Darla: Will you? Isn't that against your Cub Scout code?

Angel: It was Darla. She's back - and she's human now - but I know her scent.
Wesley: Angel, you can't just, sniff a person and know...
Angel: You had sex last night, with a bleached blonde.
Wesley: Good Lord! How'd you...?
Cordelia: That's unbelievable. I didn't think you ever had sex.

Cordelia: What if, every time you identified a demon in one of your big 'ole books we give you ten bucks or a chicken pot pie?
Wesley: Wait, I have another idea, no! Get a vision.
Cordelia: It's not like you can hit me in the head and "wham!" it happens.
Wesley: What if we test that theory with one of my big 'ole books?

Cordelia: (while Angel is smelling her hair) Personal bubble! Personal bubble!

(talking about Angel)
Wesley: Oh, he's an eccentric, all the great ones are. Sherlock Holmes, Phillip Marlowe...
Jenkins: Those are fictional characters.
Wesley: Right you are, which gives Angel rather a leg up when you come to think of it.

Wesley: We made you some tea.
Angel: Yeah.
Cordelia: It's right on the table right there in front of you.
Angel: Table seems far.
Cordelia: Oh, you must be all worn out from sleeping for the past few days. It's like living with the world's oldest teenager. (to Wesley) You don't think he's having a growth spurt at 248, is he?
Angel: 247!

Kate: He hasn't changed.
Gunn: You're right. He hasn't. He's still a vampire.
Cordelia: Gunn, not helping.
Gunn: So how did he get into that house?

(talking about Darla)
Wesley: Vampires don't come back from the dead.
Angel: I did and I saw her. I'm not crazy.
Wesley: Where?
Angel: Right between the clowns and the big talking hot dog.

(after going undercover)
Cordelia: That was really fun. The public humilitation, running from the hotel security staff, and the nifty little outfit which seemed to tell so many conventioneers, "Pet me, I'm a whore."

(to Angel, after burning him with a cross)
Darla: You see, no matter how good a boy you are, God doesn't want you. But I still do.

Angelus: Convents. They're just a big cookie jar.
