Episode Quotes
Angel: All I care about now is getting my son back. Then I'll deal with those responsible. They'll all pay. Including Wesley.

Linwood: Still, big win for Holtz.
Lilah: If you call jumping into a cesspool hell dimension a win.

Angel: What about the files?
Gunn: They're in English... Cordelia's filing system isn't.

Angel: I know she was keeping some kind of list of time/space shifting entities.
Gunn: Okay. So's that under "time" "space" "shifting" or "entities?"
Angel: Let's check all of it.

Lilah: There is no other way.
Lorne: I think not speaking would be a really good look for you.

Fred: Angel, the prophecy --
Angel: It's a lie. I'd never hurt Connor.
Fred: How can you know that for sure?
Angel: I'd never hurt someone I care about. Now move.

Gunn: You wrote the prophecies.
Sahjhan: More a re-write.
Fred: "The father will kill the son."
Sahjhan: Yeah. I flitted back and forth in time, changed the one that threatened me, polished some others. Flitted in a manly way. Just so we're clear.

Winifred: Where's Wesley?
Justine: Heaven? Hell? I slit his throat.
