That Vision Thing

Gunn: "Ah, I-I don't mean to rush you back into the twenty first century, but how about using some chopsticks. Or a fork, maybe. You remember forks, don't you?"
Fred: "Sure. Who could forget? Fork, pitch fork, fork it over, fork in the road - one I'm not ready to take yet."

Fred: "How about if you use that vision thing to find out where Angel's at right now."
Cordelia: "Cause I don't care?"
Gunn: "Ah, what Cordelia means is that she doesn't choose to have a vision. The Powers send them to her when they got info to share."
Wesely: "Think of them as gifts."
Cordelia: "Yes, having-my-head torn-open-and-hot-lava-poured-into-my-skull gifts."

Cordelia: "Oh. Hi. I'm sorry I didn't hear you sneak up on us... Must be those tastefully expensive Gucci Loafers. Totally our fault."

Cordelia: "Yeah, okay - minion of darkness - Satan's toady - but that is a nice suit. Did you see that suit?"

Angel: "Fred! Good to see you out and about."
Fred: "It is, isn't it? Out and about. I've been forking with Gunn."

Gunn: "Five herb shops in Chinatown and we've been to four. How come whatever we're searching for is always in the last place we look?"
Wesley: "I suppose it is one of the unwritten laws of being a 'dick'... Ah, a sleuth, a gumshoe, Sherlock."
Gunn: "All I know is you use the word 'dick' again and we're gonna have a problem."

Gunn: "Damn, Grandma and grandpa got game."

Cordelia: "Take it with you. Enjoy the peanutty goodness in the comfort of your own home."
Fred: "Hey. Wait. Angel said..."
Cordelia: "I know. He said that you should wait until he calls but as you can see, I'm fine. In fact I'm better than fine. I'm - right as rain."
Fred: "I-I never understood that saying 'right as rain'. How is rain right? Or wrong, for that matter. Okay, I suppose if there's a flood it's wrong. And speaking of floods, or maybe just being overwhelmed - what's it like to have a vision?"
Cordelia: "Wow. You know, next to you, I am downright linear."

Fred: "Has - has anyone ever told you you're exactly like Lassie? Yeah. You're like Angel's Lassie. Sure, he does most of the saving but it's your visions that tell him that Timmy is trapped in the well, or robbers are hiding in the barn. He really needs and depends on you."
Cordelia: "Well, thanks. I'd be flattered except for the Lassie being a dog part."

Fred: "I know that you're probably disappointed that you couldn't go fight that thing with Angel."
Gunn: "Right. Because why would I wanna walk with a cute, young woman on a beautiful night when I could be out hacking and slaying an ugly, boil-covered demon monster and getting myself killed."
Fred: "I can't apologize enough."
Gunn: "Hey, I just follow orders. No matter how tough the job."

Angel: "Why don't you want Lorne to try and trace the visions?"
Cordelia: "It's not like I'm morally against letting a demon into my subconscious for a quick lookee-loo. Hey, might be fun. But with the Powers That Be doing this whole 'book of Job' thing, the last thing I want is more noise in my head."

Cordelia: "If I lose the visions, I wouldn't be able to help you anymore. You wouldn't need me."
Angel: "That's not why I need you. You're important. - And the visions are just after the market extras like Hurst shift or Krager wheels."
Cordelia: "Did you just compare me to a car?"
Angel: "It was a very nice car."
Cordelia: "I guess that's better than a dog."

Lorne: "Say you're on a mountaintop, and it's warm. The sky is blue, full of big, fluffy clouds. You're Julie Andrews in 'The Sound of Music'. And you're relaxed and you're spinning and the camera is swirling and - ouch! Careful, honey, you've got some power of your own!"
Cordelia: "Sorry. All that spinning and swirling was freaking me out."
Lorne: "My fault, my fault. I just love that movie so much!"

Cordelia: "Am I a bad person? Am I just a horrible person? Because I know I can be snippy sometimes."
Angel: "This isn't happening because you're bad. - If anything it's because you're strong. Stronger than you realize."
Cordelia: "I'm not. - I know what I said earlier. - But I don't want the visions anymore. I tried to be brave. I did. But I'm just scared now. I'm scared all the time. I mean look at me! What could be so important that the Powers would do this? I don't understand."

Gunn: "Are you saying someone's hacked into Cordy's head?"

Wesley: "Something you probably won't like to hear is that both artifacts are considered objects of good."
Angel: "Oh. So the Chinese guy and the boil guy..."
Wesley: "Were also aligned with the forces of good."
Angel: "Damn! So hard to tell these days. You know, they should wear lapel pins or something."

Angel: "I don't suppose we know what this other dimension is like - I mean, besides fortress-y and demon-y."

Angel: "Sure. Because it would be too easy if I could actually defend myself."

Skip: "Do you have any idea how monstrous a guy has to be before he gets sent to us? We're a very high-end institution."

Angel: "So, ah, you live in here, Skip?"
Skip: "No. I commute. It's not too bad - about twenty minutes."
Angel: "Uh, what keeps him in the fire?"
Skip: "My will."
Angel: "How come he's not screaming in pain?"
Skip: "Oh, he is. My will prevents him from being heard. I mean there is only so many 'oh my god! The pain! Please make it stop!' that you can listen to before it starts to bug the crap out of you."
Angel: "I see your point."

Angel: "Skip, are you okay? Good. Sorry about this."

Lilah: "To be honest, nobody at the firm thought that you could do it - except me. You're a remarkable man, Angel."
Angel: "Yeah, and you're an evil bitch. Let's finish this."

Angel: "Don't you come at me through Cordelia ever again. You play that card a second time and I'll kill you."

Cordelia: "Angel - what you did for me was unbelievably selfless - and brave, and amazing. And it's so great to know that the next vision I have will just be blindingly painful and not turn me into Elephant-man or anything."

Shaman: "The father is also a..."
Darla: "Vampire? Yes! Though - not a very good one."
Shaman: "I will need some blood."
Darla: "Well, I'll show you mine if - you show me yours."

Darla: "I guess there is only one thing left to do. Time to go visit daddy."
