Episode Quotes
Connor: You're right. It is harsh and cruel. She was the only thing that made it hurt less.
Angel: Connor.
Connor: But it's not me. I could feel it in her touch, in her eyes. She loves you. Its always been you.

(To Wo-Pang)
Wesley: Rumor has it you possess certain skills. I need a soul extracted.

Gunn: The only victory we can claim is we are not dead yet.

Connor: You're the reason my life sucks.
Angel: Get over it.

(To Connor)
Angel: Just remember what happens, just remember Angelus is not your father.

Gunn: So this is why we couldn't find out anything, these people have it walking around on their asses.

(Regarding Wo-Pang)
Gunn: Is there a part of this guy that doesn't have something written on it? Scratch that, I don't want to know.

Episode Goofs
How can Angel not know what went on with the Beast? Angel remembered everything else so why not regarding the Beast?

They built a steel cage for Angelus really fast.
