Episode Quotes
Angel: Uh--
Cordelia: Don't.
Angel: Don't--?
Cordelia: You're gonna start trying to make small talk. Get all stammery. Don't. You might strain something.

Cordelia: Whoa. Big bird.
Gunn: Bigbird?
Cordelia: Not the Muppet, dumbass...

Angel: I just thought... Well, she looked so tired. And that vision really took a lot out of her. And... You think maybe I should send her something? Flowers, maybe?
Wesley: Flowers?
Angel: Yeah. You know, to say "thanks." And "sorry about the migraines." You know... "I appreciate you."
Wesley: Yes, by all means. And while you're at it, pick me up one of those "SORRY YOU WERE SHOT IN THE GUT" bouquets!

Wesley: It's all right to speak freely in front of her. She's a vampire.
Gunn: Don't we kill them anymore?

Cordelia: (About Harmony's singing voice) What do you think?
Host: I think your friend should reconsider the name "Harmony."

Angel: She doesn't have a soul.
Cordelia: Oh. That's it, isn't it? You're better than her because you have a soul.
Angel: Well... yeah.

(To Cordelia)
Harmony: We alway said we were going to do something with our lives. Now you're an office assistant and I'm dead.
