Episode Quotes
The Mayor: There's more than one way to skin a cat. And I happen to know that's factually true.

Wesley: Find anything?
Giles: Six course banquet of nothing with a scoop of sod-all as a palate closer.

The Mayor: Now, then, Angelus... May I call you Angel?
Angel: Well, actually, I'm thinking more along the lines of you calling me "master".
The Mayor: You know, Angelus, attitude may get you attention, but courtesy wins respect.
