Flashbacks to what occurred to Holtz' family.
This marks the final appearance of Caritas.
Cordelia: Please! Women have been giving birth without ancient prophecies for years!
Gunn: What we could really use right about now is some Vaseline and a catcher's mitt.
Holtz: Do you know what he is?
Lilah: Yeah, I know. Vampire, cursed by gypsies who restored his soul, destined to atone for centuries of evil, wacky sidekicks, yada, yada. I'd have him killed myself, except the people I work for have this 'policy.'
Sahjhan: See? This is why I didn't mention it. So Angel has a soul. Big whoop! So did Attila the Hun! Not to mention a heart as big as all outdoors when it came to gift giving. He is still a vampire! Angel, not Attila.
Holtz: He's not the same vampire.
Sahjhan: Of course he is! His hair is a little shorter, a little spikier. He's using product. But it's the same guy.
Fred: You gave us quite a scare. But I guess you're used to that, what with being a scary thing and all.
Angel: Attacked? I thought you had double protection sanctorium spells?
The Host: I do. It's a thing with the door and the stairs and the world and the thing. Never mind!
Gunn: Apparently you can be outside and shove stuff in.
The Host: I just said that.
Darla: No. No, I don't think so. Once he's gone, I won't be okay. I won't be okay at all. I don't know what I'll be. Angel... Our baby is gonna die right here in this alley. You died in an alley, remember?
Darla: This child Angel, it's the one good thing we ever did together. The only good thing. You make sure to tell him that.
Darla: I won't be able to love it. I won't even be able to remember that I loved it. I want to remember.
Lilah: They don't crucify here; it's too Christian.
References the death of Christ through crucifixion.
Sahjhan: Angel has a soul, so what? So did Attila the Hun.
Attila the Hun was a Hunnish warrior king who led an army of Mongolian Hordes and subdued lands from the Rhine to the frontiers of China. Very ruthless and cunning. The point here being that just because one has a soul, it does not mean that one has scruples.
