Episode Quotes

Cordelia: How do you do that?

Cordelia: Make everything feel like it's not spiraling apart.

Lorne: Why?
Angel: No.
Lorne: Why?
Angel: No.
Lorne: Let's meet in the middle and say "why no?"

Angel: You see, the worst we got going on is a haunted toilet, so let's give Cordy a little space.

(After seeing rats pop out of everywhere in the bathroom)
Fred: You might want to look in to an exterminator.
Gunn: Or just burn the place down whatever works.

(On phone)
Lorne: Well that doesn't sound normal for someone for his age. Just whatever you do, don't poke him.

Angel: You should probably get some sleep.
Cordelia: Yeah because impending doom is as good as warm milk.
