Wo Pang: "Must acquire better guards."

Cordy: "Angel's soul has been misplaced. I bet that sort of thing happens all the time. What do you have as a back-up plan to re-ensoul somebody?"
Wo Pang: "There is no other way known to me. Without the muo-ping... you're screwed."

Wo Pang: "Then like all things, the soul can be returned or destroyed."

Angelus: "Awfully quiet up there. I've had time to think and I've realized something important. Being evil is wrong. I want to be good. I want to be Angel again. You hear me? I'm ready."

Gunn: "That shaman should have never been brought here. Now instead of just worrying about the big bad rock-eater, we got Darth Vampire living in the basement."

Fred: "He's just... it's just words."
Gunn: "Yeah."
Fred: "And that's the only way he can hurt us. He knows he's never getting out."

Lilah: "The great Angelus..."
Angelus: "Oh, come on. You can do better than that, huh? Try playing up the awe and the reverence a bit... The great Angelus."
Lilah: "Great... being locked in a cage."
Angelus: "Yet managing to display better grooming habits than you. Look at yourself, Lilah. All these years wanting to meet me... you couldn't run a comb through your hair, maybe slap on a little lipstick? Evil doesn't have to mean sloppy."

Lilah: "Why is he picking on us? We're the bad guys!"

Gunn: "I can't do this anymore, Fred. I'm tired of you looking everywhere but at me... Like that."

Fred: "You guys have any luck?"
Connor: "Yeah, but it was all bad. Shaman didn't have the soul. Doesn't know who took it. Doesn't know how to find it."
Cordy: "Other than that, everything's peachy."

Gunn: "What kind of brain fart made that witch try and let Angelus out?"

Wesley: "How did you know we had Angelus?"
Lilah: "Big magick, taking a champion's soul. Makes ripples. I still know some people who like ripples. It was your idea, wasn't it, to bring him? Great minds..."
Wesley: "...aren't foolish enough to release him."

Lilah: "I just... I just want my life back. All my pretty things... I'm selfish that way."

Gunn: "Maybe the big bad Best has minions doing his dirty work."
Angelus: "Morons. The big rock doesn't have minions. It is the minion."

Angelus: "You've just seen the warm-up act."
Cordy: "What are you saying?"
Angelus: "I'm saying, there's something bigger. Something worse... The Beast... has a boss."

Angelus: "How did you survive this long being so retarded?"

Connor: "How do you know there's something worse than the Beast?"
Angelus: "Cause I've got a brain, son. The Beast I knew was big on the smash and slaughter. Had the brawn to be really good at it, too. But the big picture? Not his strong point. But whoa... flash forward. Now he's all rain of fire, destroying the Ra-tet, blotting out the sun... big moves for a guy whose head's made out of rock."
Cordy: "Maybe he got smarter."
Angelus: "And maybe I'll sprout some wings and flutter away. There's something else out there. More powerful, more vicious... pulling all the strings. I don't know about you but I'm just dying to find out what it is."

Gunn: "You believe her? Lying's her job."
Lilah: "He's got a point... You want to search me?"

Angelus: "You know what I like about you? You play to your strengths. You know what they are and you stick to them. You don't find that much these days. Everybody always trying to expand their horizons, actuate their potential and all that other touchy-feely crap. But not you. You don't try to change... because you know your place. That'll go a long way toward keepin you alive. Well, a lot longer than the others. Man, you guys really are on a streak. You let LA nearly burn to the ground... lost the sun... let the creepy-crawlies practically take over the city. But, you know, that's okay. At least you got the love a good woman... til she dumps you for a guy with a bigger horizon."

Angelus: "Mmm... there's nothing like your first murder."

Angelus: "You do a chick a favor, you think she'd be grateful. But no. She still goes for the broody smart guy, all mysterious and tortured. I guess when you think about it, for the first time in your life, you just weren't dark enough."

Wesley: "We'll find a way to bring Angel back."
Fred: "How?"
Wesley: "The way we always do. Skill, perseverance... luck."

Wesley: "I made some headway cross-referencing but there's no telling how long it'll take to get anything definitive."
Cordy: "But you have made some progress?"
Lilah: "Sure looks like he's trying."

Lilah: "So what now? Ouija board?"

Fred: "Lorne! Did you find out anything?"
Lorne: "Zip. Zilch. And what the hell is succu-bitch doing here?"
Cordy: "Still trying to figure that out."

Cordy: "Do you know what Angelus would do if we let him out?"
Lilah: "Kill you all in a bloody shower of violence... but, hey, greater good."

Lilah: "Don't go Watchtower on me, Saint Cordelia. I don't think I could stomach it."
Cordy: "Man, I'd love to punch your face in."
Lilah: "Are you trying to turn me on?"

Cordy: "You're too scared to believe in anything because you're too scared to hope. You won't even open your eyes to the possibility."
Lilah: "You don't get it, do you, twinkie? I'm what I believe in. And you think I got this far by sticking my head in the sand? The Beast that eviscerated me has a boss and that boss is going to end life as we know it and nobody is coming to save us! Not Angel, not the Powers That Be and not the Forty-damned-second Calvalry!"

Angelus: "Hey, we were just talking about you. At least I was, anyway."

Angelus: "Oh! She really has put on the spunk, hasn't she, Wes? Not the same shy bitch-cow we pulled out of Pylea."
Fred: "There's only one bitch here and I'm looking at him."
Angelus: "Oh, come on. We all know it's for the best. Now you can go for the real prize. Mmm... man, I'm telling you, if I swung that way... look at him. All rugged and handsome. And brains! Man, he's damn near perfect."
Wesley: "Thank you."
Angelus: "Except the part about banging Lilah for the past six months. That kinda takes the shine off."

Connor: "Nice."
Gunn: "Yeah, sometimes you just gotta keep whackin."

Fred: "Sometimes I hate this life."

Cordy: "Never do I have the happy frolicking puppy visions. Always bones and death and..."
Connor: "We got the skull of the soul-eater."
Cordy: "I'm just saying..."

Lorne: "Wesley, would you please warn this walking infection that I haven't forgotten how she poked my head open like a Capri-Sun and while my love for humnity allows me to tolerate her presence, if need be I will smack her down! Be a doll, Thanks."

Lilah: "The upside of being in it for yourself, Wes? You always end up on the winning team."

Angelus: "Have you all lost your minds? You're going to use black magick to restore my soul. People, this never goes well. Am I the only one paying attention?"
Lilah: "Ten-to-one, the entire hotel gets sucked into a hell dimension."
Gunn: "You two, with the shuttin up."

Angelus: "Look at you. Heroes. So tangled up in your own crap, you can't even find the world to save it."

Angelus: "Hell, even Angel knew you never stood a chance. You want to know why he really let me out? Because he finally gave up. He knew you wre all too weak and selfish to stop what's coming. He gave up his soul because he gave up on you."
Cordy: "Right. Bye-bye."

Angelus: "Don't kid yourselves... I'll still be around long after your corpses rot."

Angel: "Raindrops keep falling on my head..."

Angel: "I'm staying in here. I'm doing what's best for the group."
Cordy: "Since when is locking up the leader what's best for the group?"

Lilah: "I can't believe we didn't crush you people years ago."

Cordy: "I thought I should tell you up front that I don't take orders from guys too scared to step out of their cages."

Angel: "So how do I go up there?"
Cordy: "Easy. Leavehim and what you did inside the cage. You're not Angelus."
Angelus: "Guess again."

Angelus: "Stay down!"

Angelus: "Cordy let me out. Well, actually, I asked her to be let out. You know what? Never mind."

Angelus: "I know I could use a drink... Now you see, that's what I was afraid of. For the rest of your life you'll only see this... evil thing."
Fred: "You're my friend, Angel. Past is past and done is done."
Angelus: "Thanks, Fred. Can I get a hug?"

Angelus: "Now I've got my own mission."
Connor: "Which is?"
Angelus: "Too dangerous, son. I'm afraid you can't go with me... I have to go save the world."
Fred: "So has anyone seen Cordy?"

Cordy: "I don't understand how the spell didn't work."
Lilah: "Dud ex machina. There's a surprise."

Cordy: "And he let me think I was talking him into it."
Lilah: "Those evil geniuses... get ya every time."

Connor: "He would go to the place where he could wreak the most damage."
Wesley: "Which doesn't necessarily mean highly-populated."
Fred: "He doubled back."

Angelus: "Boo!"

Lilah: "He's gonna kill us."
Cordy: "I know... Why do you think I let him out, you stupid bitch?"
