Blind Date

Wesley: Demons with one eye, demons with twelve eyes, some with double vision, - but no blind demons. - Perhaps Angel's discovered a new species.
Cordelia: What? Helen Kellerus Homocidalus?

Wesley: What? You found her?
Cordelia: Our first stop doesn't always have to be world of the weird, you know? Sometimes actual human people can be just - awful.

Angel: How am I supposed to fight evil if they won't even put it behind bars?
Cordelia: It's not your fault.
Angel: No, it's not my fault. - I - I didn't cause it, and I can't fix it. I can't do anything about it. - Well, she's guilty. - She's guilty and - and they let her go. She murdered a man right in front of me and I can't even testify to that fact in a court of law."
Cordelia: "Well, maybe in night court you could...

Angel: How am I expected to do battle if I can't even get into the ring?
Wesley: You have a place, Angel. Our battle will be fought elsewhere.
Angel: It's still their world, Wesley. Structured for power - not truth. - It's their system, and it's one that works. - It works because - there is no guilt - there is no torment, no consequences. - It's pure. - I remember what that was like. - Sometimes I miss that clarity.
Cordelia: But not the trying to kill your friends and family part, right? - Just checking!
Angel: Nothing ever changes.

Lindsey: Hey, I don't want to be here anymore than you want to see me. But I don't have a choice.
Angel: You always have a choice. I mean, you sold your soul for a fifth-floor office and a company car.

Angel: You're panicking right now. You can't believe how bad you let things get. - That's not change. - You have to make a decision to change. That's something you do by yourself. Most people - they never do.
Lindsey: If I get myself killed, that'll convince you that I've changed.
Angel: It's a start.

Cordelia: Why are you going in at all? I thought born-again boy was gonna do it.

Lindsey: The righteous shall walk a thorny path.

Gunn: Give me one good reason.
Angel: It'll be extremely dangerous.
Gunn: Okay.

Gunn: Whoo-whoo! My god! They told me it was true, but I didn't believe them. Damn, here it is! Evil white folks really do have a Mecca. Now, now, girls, don't get all riled up... Ow! Did you just step on my foot? Is that my foot you just stepped on? Are you assaulting me - up in this haven of justice?... Somebody get me a lawyer - because my civil rights have seriously been violated. - Oh, I get it, I get it. You all can cater to the demon, cater to the dead man, but what about the black man!... I'd love to stay and chat, but - you, fellows!

Lee: Shouldn't we've been memoed or something?
Lilah: That's why they call them random mind readings.

Holland: Terminating an employee is never pleasant.

Wesley: Was there a reason you took this?
Angel: Yeah.
Wesley: And that would be...
Angel: I - I don't really know.

Holland: What a pity. You can't get that out of the carpet. - Believe me, we've tried. Are you afraid? Well, that's understandable. You betrayed this firm by allaying yourself with someone who - has given us a great deal of grief. - You've stolen important documents from our vault. - Tried to sabotage an extremely important case. - And in the course of this egreious behavior - you lied to us - more importantly, to me. - Did I leave anything out?

Holland: Well, then you're in a crisis, son - crisis of faith. - Do you believe in love? - I'm not speaking romantically. - I'm talking about that sharp, clear sense of self a man gains - once he's truly found his place in the world. - It's no mean feat, since most men are cowards and just move with the crowd. Very few make their own destinies. They have the courage of their convictions, and they know how to behave in a crisis.
Lindsey: Like now?
Holland: LIke now. You have everything it takes to go all the way here - drive, ambition, - excellence - but you don't know where you belong. And until you do - I guess we both have some important questions to answer. - Now, my first one is - do I nod - to my friend behind me? - No, - I don't. Because I know you, and I know a little something about character. - I think what you actually need is a few days off to think about it. And I'm sure once you have - you're gonna do the right thing..

Cordelia: Hey, guess what they've been doing all day?
Wesley: Uh - saving the world?
Cordelia: Well, yeah. But they've been breaking encrypted computer files, too!
Angel: What are the odds, huh?
Cordelia: I know.

Cordelia: Are you telling me - self-mutilating, psycho assassin chick reached enlightment?

Lindsey: Sorry I'm late. I hope I didn't worry anyone.
Cordelia: We just figured you were dead.

Wesley: There is a design, Angel. Hidden in the chaos as it may be, but - it's there - and you have your place in it.

Holland: What does safe mean to you?
Lindsey: Not being at war with Wolfram and Hart - having my own life.
Holland: Lindsey, - haven't you learned anything? No one has their own life. We're all part of something larger.

Holland: What I'm offering you, Lindsey, is the world. Now I know you pretty well, and I'm betting that you're gonna take it.
