Say What? - quote of the week...
Wesley: Ah - oops. - I may have made a tiny mistake. The word Shanshu that I said meant you were going to die? Actually I think it means that you are going to live.
Cordelia: Okay, as tiny mistakes go - that's not one!
Wesley: Shanshu has roots in so many different languages. The most ancient source is the Proto-Bantu and they considered life and death the same thing, part of a cycle, only a thing that's not alive never dies. It's - it's saying - that you get to live until you die. - It's saying - it's saying you become human.
Cordelia: That's the prophecy?
Wesley: Ah, the vampire with a soul, once he fulfills his destiny, will Shanshu. Become human. - It's his reward.
Cordelia: Wow. Angel, human.
Angel: That'd be nice.
