Darla: "Don't fight it my love. Just let it happen. It'll only hurt for a minute."

Angel: "You saved me."
Darla: "Yes. - But I was going to kill you tonight. Take you out of this world the same way I brought you into it. But I didn't have to. You gave yourself over so completely, Angelus. I felt you surrender."
Angel: " I gave you everything I had left."
Darla: "Yes."
Angel: "I am - so sorry."
Darla: "You don't have to be."
Angel: "But I am... I am sorry."
Darla: "What?"
Angel: "I am sorry, Darla..."
Darla: "No..."
Angel: "You saved me. Sorry I couldn't do the same for you."
Darla: "Let go of me! You still have a soul."

Darla: "You weren't tricked into anything. I didn't seduce you. You wanted it!"
Angel: "Yeah. And it was perfect, Darla. - It was perfect despair... And you were the reason. You've always been the reason. You were the thing that made me what I am, and - I thought - if I could save you, I'd somehow - save myself, but - but I was wrong. And when I failed..."
Darla: "Stop it!"
Angel: "When I failed, you saved me. And I have to thank you for that. There is nothing I can do for you now, Darla. I can't even hate you."

Kate: "Thanks. - Now get out."

Lindsey: "Things are getting complicated for us now."
Darla: "Yes. Yes, I believe they are."

Lindsey: "What happened?"
Darla: "Nothing. - Nothing happened. - My god, nothing at all."

Angel: "I'm still not sure I understand what happened."
Host: "What's to understand? You think you're the first guy who ever rolled over, saw what was lying next to him and went 'Guyeah!' And you're not. Believe me. - It's called a moment of clarity, my lamb. And you've just had one. Sort of appalling, ain't it? To see just exactly where you've gotten yourself?"

Host: "I think I'm speaking for everyone when I say if all you're gonna do is switch back to brood mode, we'd rather have you evil. Then at least - leather pants."

Cordelia: "That was helpful!"

Skilosh: "Destroyer of our Spawn."
Cordelia: "Destroyer of your... Have we met?"

Cordelia: "I'm guessing 'Hey! Look behind you!' is really not gonna work, is it?"

Cordelia: "No, no. No more must rise. Honest. Listen, I've been impregnated by demon spawn before. Let's just say, didn't really work out."

Angel: "Knowing her..."
Wesley: "But you don't. You don't know her at all. For months now you haven't cared to. Otherwise you might have realized that our Cordelia has become a very solitary girl. She's not the vain, carefree creature she once was... Well, certainly not carefree. - It's the visions, you see. The visions that were meant to guide you. You could turn away from them. She doesn't have that luxury. She knows and experiences the pain in this city, and because of who she is, she feels compelled to do something about it. - It's left her little time for anything else. - You'd have known that - if you hadn't had your head firmly up your... place that isn't on top of your neck."

Gunn: "So, what's he doing here?"
Wesley: "He had an epiphany."

Angel: "Guys - guys, d-does it make sense that sh-she would go there in the middle of the night without calling either one of you?"
Gunn/Wesley: "They owe us money."
Angel: "Let's go."

Gunn: "So, you had an epiphany, did you?"
Angel: "Yeah."
Gunn: "So, what you just wake up and bang?"
Angel: "Well, it was sort of the other way around."

Wesley: "Is she..."
Gunn: "Yeah, she's alive."
Wesley: "Are you sure?"
Gunn: "Yeah. Her eyes are open. All three of them."
Wesley: "Oh dear."

Angel: "I'm sorry Lindsey... I really am... I'm sorry she'll never love you... I'm sorry you're gonna have to live with that... I'm sorry I didn't try harder to help you when you came to me... I'm sorry you made the wrong choice..."

Cordelia: "Gunn!... Wesley!"
Wesley: "We came to rescue you."
Cordelia: "I know you would!"
Gunn: "But then they caught us coming in the back door."

Cordelia: "Angel... Hi."
Angel: "Hi - You okay?"
Cordelia: "No."
Angel: "You're not?"
Cordelia: "No. - You really hurt my feelings."

Kate: "My whole life has been about being a cop. If I'm not part of the force it's like nothing I do means anything."
Angel: "It doesn't."
Kate: "Doesn't what?"
Angel: "Mean anything. In the greater scheme or the big picture, nothing we do matters. There's no grand plan, no big win."
Kate: "You seem kind of chipper about that."
Angel: "Well, I guess I kinda - worked it out. If there is no great glorious end to all this, if - nothing we do, now, today. - I fought for so long. For redemption, for a reward - finally just to beat the other guy, but... I never got it."
Kate: "And now you do?"
Angel: "Not all of it. All I wanna do is help. I wanna help because - I don't think people should suffer, as they do. Because, if there is no bigger meaning, then the smallest act of kindness - is the greatest thing in the world."
Kate: "Yikes. It sounds like you had an epiphany."
Angel: "I keep saying that. But nobody's listening."

Kate: "I never thought you'd come for me, but... I got cut a huge break and I believe... - I don't know what I believe, but I - have - faith. - I think maybe we're not alone in this."
Angel: "Why?"
Kate: "Because I never invited you in."

Angel: "I don't want you to come back and work for me."
Wesley: "Oh. I see."
Angel: "I wanna work for you."
Gunn: "You wanna work for us?"
Angel: "Yeah. I do."
Wesley: "Why?"
Angel: "Because I think I can help."
Cordelia: "How do we know we can trust you?"
Angel: "I guess I'll just have to earn that."

Cordelia: "The usual big scary rising up in a housing project in Topanga, and - why is it that I am not on the floor this time?"
Angel: "I got you."
