Episode Quotes
Cordelia: That's everything? It all makes perfect sense now. I was a cheerleader, a princess and a warrior. And I have have visions and super powers and I'm the target of an evil law firm because I've spent the last three months living on a higher plane, fighting for the forces of good, who wage a battle against demons and evilies and squishy bug babies, 'cause all that stuff's real that's the world I live in. And I think I know why I don't remember any of this 'cause, hey who'd want to!

Corelia: Who are you people?

Angel: What do you remember?
Cordelia: I don't know. Numbers, animals, flossing.

(To Cordelia)
