Episode Quotes
(To Fred)
Angel: You may not know this but some here like to accuse me of being the mopey loner one.

Cordelia: She's got the big puppy love. I mean, who wouldn't? You're handsome and brave and heroic, emotionally stunted, erratic, prone to turning evil, and let's face it, a eunuch.
Angel: Hey! How can you. I'm not a eunuch.
Cordelia: Angel, it's just a figure of speech.
Angel: Find another one.
Cordelia: I just mean that sex is a no-no for you because of the whole "if you know perfect bliss you'll turn evil curse." Really no cure for that, is there, huh?

(To interviewees)
Cordelia: Have you guys seen anybody suspicious, or kinda pale or green and scaly?

Cordelia: This is just like him, doing the mystery dance with some cheap blonde.
Fred: She was brunette, she was a cheap brunette.
