Angel: Waiting in the Wings

Episode Quotes
Cordelia: So! What's up with you? Hey, you went with the dark colors today! It's a look.
Angel: Ask me why I'm smiling.
Cordelia: I will because it's scaring me.

Angel: Oh yeah. I saw their production of Giselle in 1890 -- cried like a baby. And I was evil!

Angel: Back in the day, I'd always get box seats... or eat the people who had 'em.
Cordelia: Don't let's reminisce. We're here. Enjoy.

Fred: That's impossible! We're watching the exact same troupe you saw in 1990?
Gunn: Uh, I think he said 1890.
Fred: Oh. Okay, that's much more impossible.

Gunn: That would also explain the precision, and the athleticism. I mean, some of those jumps...You know, I was cool before I met y'all.

Cordelia: Up to his ass in demon gore, fine, but ask him to mack on a hottie and he wigs. My champion, ladies and gentlemen.

Angel: Don't be stupid. I'm that guy and the most beautiful woman I've ever seen is making eyes at me? It's either a bachelor party or a scam.
Cordelia: What did you call me?
Angel: I'm sorry. You're not stupid.
Cordelia: No, after that?
