News Anchor: "The weather service remains baffled at the cause of this strange phenomenon. all that's being reported at this mid-afternoon hour is what meterologists are calling 'a localized abnormality', confirming earlier reports that outlying areas remain unaffected while the sun over Los Angeles has, for all intents and purposes, been blotted out from the sky."
Fred: "Working on it. Failing miserably but working on it."
Connor: "You're wasing your time. The answer is among us."
Cordy: "It wasn't Angel in my vision. It was Angelus."
Connor: "He is Angelus."
Cordy: "Believe me. You've never met Angelus."
Cordy: "The gypsy curse was specific. For Angel to lose his soul, he would have to experience a moment of perfect, pure happiness. And right now happiness of any kind is in kind of short supply."
Lorne: "Sorry, bucko. I got nothing. Although your choice of The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia might have thrown me a wee."
Wesley: "Rumor has it you possess certain skill I require. I need a soul extracted."
Angel: "So what have we got?"
Fred: "A puzzle with missing pieces and some cryptic gibberish."
Gunn: "Face it, man, we're losing ground. Pretty much the only victory we can claim is that we're not dead yet."
Angel: "Something to say, Connor? You got a problem?"
Cordy: "Hey, Connor!"
Connor: "Acting like the big leader. Like we don't already know what we know."
Angel: "And what do you know?"
Connor: "Everybody thought it was me. Maybe even I was starting to. But it was you all along. You're the one who's working with the Beast."
Angel: "I'm not."
Connor: "Well, then you're a puppet! Either way, everything's going to hell because of you. You're the reason that the sun is gone, that I don't have a home to go back to. You're the reason that she- It's you. You're the reason my life sucks."
Angel: "Get over it."
Lorne: "Not to be a butinsky but could we get back to the pep-talky thing?"
Angel: "You have no idea what Angelus is, Wesley. All you know is what you've read in books. You've never had the pleasure of his company and you're not going to."
Cordy: "They're all going to die. The flowers, plants, trees. Without sun. Just realizing."
Angel: "Do you... do you think Connor's right? That I'm being used by the Beast without even knowing?"
Angel: "Are you just saying that?"
Cordy: "Yes. I don't know, Angel. It's possible."
Angel: "You're saying Angelus is smarter than me."
Cordy: "No! You're smart. He's just..."
Cordy: "But in that twisted, sadistic, ruthless kind of way."
Angel: "Like the Beast."
Cordy: "Yes, exactly. They think alike. Always a step or two ahead of us. I mean, what is it about evil that jacks up the IQ points?"
Lorne: "Hey, listen, Angelcakes, if it's all the same with you, I think I might sit this one out upstairs. You know how dark magick unleashing unspeakable evil gives me the heebies."
Angel: "Look, I know you like to think that I'm the enemy but if this works... I will be. I'm going to be the one thing you were raised to believe I was. The thing I never wanted you to see."
Connor: "Yeah. I think I can handle it."
Angel: "Uh-huh. Well, just keep in mind that whatever Angelus says, whatever he does... remember, he's not your father. I am. No matter what happens or... happened, I love you... Look, one more thing. Since I'm going to be out of commission for a while, I want you to, you know, take care of everybody. Keep them safe. That means if anything should go wrong with Angelus, you're going to have to kill me.'
Angel: "If anything goes wrong."
Angel: "Cordy? I don't want you here."
Cordy: "Yeah? Tough."
Cordy: "Angel, you don't have to do this."
Angel: "Now she tells me."
Wo Pang: "Time to say goodbye."
Cordy: "Well, so much for that font of information."
Gunn: "So that's why we couldn't find anything written about bastie-boy in the books. These jokers are walking around with it on their asses."
Gunn: "Great. So now we have to find a tooth in a haystack."
Cordy: "It's here. Under the city."
Fred: "Well, that's a break."
Angel: "Was that an apology?"
Wesley: "I was carless. I made a mistake that almost cost you your life. Would have made pulling you out of the ocean a big waste of my time."
Angel: "Yeah, that would have been a drag."
Angel: "I don't get this."
Angel: "How is it that a sword from the 3rd Century is conveniently located here in Los Angeles?"
Cordy: "What are those? Holiday decorations left over from some S&M bondage party?"
Angel: "Wood. Why did it have to be wood?"
Cordy: "I knew you two would get me in trouble someday."
Angel: "It's a dead end."
Cordy: "Who booby-traps a dead end? That's just not right."
Wesley: "I don't know... I don't know what else- Nine stones. Yes, that's it. It's not their numerical value. These are the first letters of the nine antediluvian patriarchs in Genesis."
Cordy: "That would have been my next guess."
Angel: "Which way now?"
Cordy: "Don't look at me. I'm not a Thomas Guide."
Cordy: "I've really made a mess of a messy situation, haven't I?"
Cordy: "Umm... Angel... can we get out of here now?"
Angel: "I'm good, see? I missed the pointy end."
Cordy: "We could have died."
Angel: "But we didn't."
Cordy: "What if we had? What if we'd been deep-fried trying to save the world again and I... and I didn't have the chance to tell you."
Angel: "Tell me what?"
Cordy: "I'm sorry... for what happened. For what I let happen with Connor. I was lost and frightened and I thought it was the end and... I wanted to be with you but I couldn't. Oh, god... Angel, what I did..."
Angel: "It's going to be all right."
Cordy: "No, you need to know that I can look back and see every horrible thing you've ever done as Angelus and it doesn't matter anymore because when I'm with you, all I feel is the good you've done as Angel. I know I've hurt you. I know I don't deserve forgiveness."
Angel: "Cordy, I don't care what you've done in your past, either."
Cordy: "I don't know if this is right, Angel."
Angel: "Stop talking."
Connor: "Yeah, I can really see why she wants you."
Connor: "You don't know anything, dad. Except how to take things away from me."
Angel: "Be careful."
Connor: "Why? Nothing in this world is the way it ought to be, right? It's harsh and cruel... because of you!"
Connor: "It's your fault. All your fault! I never should have been born!"
Angel: "Grow up! You think you're the only one who ever felt like that? Wished his father were dead?"
Connor: "Yeah, but mine already is."
Connor: "She was mine!"
Cordy: "No, she wasn't. I'm sorry, Connor, but you need to understand that."
Lorne: "Is that it?"
Cordy: "The Sword of the Bosh M'ad."
Wesley: "Slayer of the Beast."
Gunn: "Oh... can I play with it?"
Wesley: "All we need to do is locate the Beast."
Lorne: "Well, most of my connections have amscrayed to dimensions a little lighter on the stomping-your-entrails out."
Fred: "We found some relevant passages int the Paranych Grimoire which we were able to cross-reference with Wo Pant's... butt."
Wesley: "There's a catch, isn't there?"
Fred: "One small eensy."
Cordy: "Always with the fine print."
Angel: "There's no choice."
Cordy: "There's always a choice."
Angel: "Not for me. I have to do this. You made a difference. Each of you. Not just to me but to the world. We've been pushed to the edge so many times, done things we're sure can never be forgiven, but we're always there for each other when it counts. We've never let the darkness win. And it's not because of the Powers That Be or the super strength or the magickal weapons. It's because we believe in each other. Not just as friends or lovers but as champions. All of us. Together."
Cordy: "Angel, wait. You just said it. We're stronger together. You can't do this alone."
Angel: "I'm not."
Cordy: "Drop the Hallmark crap. That might placate the shiny-happys over there but I'm working with a little more investment. I can't lose you. Not now. Not when we're just starting... whatever it is or could be."
Angel: "We'll figure it out when I get back."
Cordy: "What if you don't?"
Angel: "That's not going to happen."
Cordy: "You don't know that."
Angel: "I have to find the Beast and- Oh. There he is."
Beast: "We could rule this world. Why do you oppose me?"
Angel: "Rain of fire, blocking out the sun... and you just kinda piss me off."
Beast: "Did you really think you'd win?"
Beast: "The boy joins the father in death."
Connor: "No. In kicking your stony ass."
Beast: "Such arrogance. So much like Angelus."
Connor: "His name... is Angel."
Angel: "Consider your ass kicked."
Angel: "You came back."
Connor: "Like I'd let you take all the credit for saving the world?... You're right. It is harsh and cruel. She was the only thing that made it hurt less."
Connor: "But it's not me. I could feel it in her touch... in her eyes. She loves you. It's always been you."
Angel: "I'm sorry."
Connor: "She was too old for me, anyway."
Angel: "Now could one of you do me a favor and sweep that up?"
Angel: "There's no place I'd rather be... than here with you. Cordy..."
Cordy: "No. Whatever it is. Whatever the reason or excuse or logic, we're here. Now. Together. Everything is the way it's supposed to be. For once. Angel... haven't we waited long enough?"
Angel: "Buffy... oh god... no!"
Wo Pang: "Illusion becomes reality. It is done."
