Angel: "All this time, it was you... wasn't it?"
Cordy: "Took you long enough to figure it out but nice turn with the Lorne-bait. You know, there was a time I would have seen that one coming eons before it ever crossed your tiny little mind."
Angel: "Because you're so clever."
Cordy: "On a scale of you to me? Pretty damn."
Angel: "Until now."
Cordy: "All good things..."
Fred: "Why are you doing this, Cordy?"
Angel: "This thing isn't Cordelia."
Cordy: "Is that what you think, hero?"
Gunn: "What... the hell happened to you?"
Fred: "Cordy's evil. Nice suit."
Gunn: "You're saying poppin mama threw you a beating?"
Lorne: "Kid Vicious did the heavy lfting. Cordy just mwa-ha-ha'd at us."
Gunn: "Guy steps out for a few hours, half the place goes supervillian."
Lorne: "That's what Wolfram & Hart sucked out of my noodle. It wasn't Cordelia's future. It was the smacker-jack surprise."
Gunn: "Damn thing's been playing us right from the start."
Angel: "From the inside... where it can do the most damage."
Angel: "We don't know if it's really Cordy."
Fred: "Or what she's got baking in her oven."
Gunn: "Evil and pregnant? I'm guessing it ain't cookies."
Connor: "Why were they trying to hurt you?"
Cordy: "You know why. They're afraid. Of you... of me... what our love has created. They were going to kill it - and me - if you hadn't come."
Connor: "I didn't know where you were. I thought something bad might have happened, followed your scent. But I never thought... how could he do that?"
Cordy: "Because he hates you. I didn't want to believe it but he does. He hates you for being with me. He can't stand the fact that he lost, that he'll never know the feel of my touch... or the warmth of my lips. You were right about Angel. He's an animal and he's turned everyone against us."
Angel: "Wes... Lilah and I weren't exactly friends..."
Wes: "You were mortal enemies. Why should you care what happened to her?"
Angel: "Because you did."
Angel: "The last couple of times I asked the Powers That Be for help, they made it pretty damned clear they weren't in the business."
Wes: "But at least one of those was to save Darla's life. A mass-murdering ex-vampire dying of syphilis? A strong 'no' is hardly a shock."
Connor: "Everything he said, about how I could help make the world a better place... about being a champion."
Cordy: "Lies. Meant to keep you in your place. Where he could watch you... control you."
Connor: "But Fred? Gunn? Wesley? Even Lorne... I thought they were... good."
Cordy: "What does that mean? Really? Being good, doing the right thing - by whose judgement? Good, evil... they're just words, Connor. Concepts of morality they forced around your neck to yank you wherever they please. You're with me now. You didn't have to live by their rules. You remember why?"
Connor: "Because we're special."
Cordy: "That's right. We're special and our baby... is going to be extraordinary."
Angel: "Keep working on a way to locate this thing. If I'm not back in a couple of hours-"
Gunn: "You're dead. We're screwed. End of the world."
Skip: "Powerful demon, Skip, at your service."
Skip: "Whoa, wait. Nobody comes back from paradise... Okay, a Slayer once but-"
Skip: "As Cordelia's guide, I'm there for all the important events."
Angel: "Except her welcome back party. So why didn't the Powers invite you to that one?"
Skip: "Mysterious ways. They can really drive a guy nuts."
Angel: "So I'm thinking either you've been played for a dupe like the rest of us... or you've been in on this from the start. Skippy."
Skip: "Angel, buddy, whatever's going on, I'm telling you true... not a dupe."
Cordy: "Our baby's going to change everything, Connor."
Angel: "Tell me... what happened... to Cordelia."
Skip: "Or what? You'll bleed on me some more? You know, I've always wondered how many chunks you gotta hack off a vampire before he goes all dustbunny?"
Skip: "See, this is the nefarious meat of it, pal. You die never knowing what really happened to the woman you love. Gotta respect the classics."
Cordy: "I know what your heart is telling you, Connor, but it will lie to you... if you let it. You have to trust me. Be sad, mourn for her... but never forget the truth. She's one of them. One of the average, normal people that fill this world. But what we're doing will elevate her life beyond that... and give her death meaning. Her blood for our baby. That's more than fair. Isn't it?"
Angel: "Cordelia. Where is she?"
Skip: "Hey, this is your dimension, man. You tell me."
Angel: "The real Cordelia. Not this thing that's been posing as her."
Skip: "How'd I ever get spanked by such a chump nut? That thing which has turned your life into a burning rain of fire - she is the real Cordelia... Or at least she's in there somewhere. It's this whole thing."
Gunn: "Is it Cordy or not?"
Skip: "Oh, it's her. She just ain't drivin."
Angel: "Something took control of her on the higher plane?"
Skip: "Drill a little deeper, hoss. How do you think she got there in the first place?"
Wes: "You're saying her ascension was all part of this thing's plan?"
Skip: "No, Cordelia was chosen to become a higher being because she's such a pure, radiant saint. Please!"
Darla: "I've always been there, close to your heart. After all... isn't that where a mother belongs?"
Connor: "My mother's dead."
Darla: "But I will always be a part of you. You shared your soul with me once, when you were growing inside of me... when I'd lost my own. You brought light to my shadow, filled my heart with joy and love. I'd never felt so close to any living thing as I did to my beautiful boy."
Connor: "Why'd you leave me? Did you hate me that much?"
Darla: "Baby, no. I wanted to be with you more than anything."
Connor: "You killed yourself. I wasn't even born yet and you-"
Darla: "-did what I had to. My life for yours. I did so many terrible things, Connor. So much destruction. So much pain. You were the one good thing I ever did. The only good thing. I'd die every day for the rest of eternity for you... and this is how you repay me?"
Skip: "It doesn't even have a name."
Gunn: "Then what do you call it?"
Skip: "You know, 'master' or 'hey'."
Angel: "It wasn't just her ascension. Everything that's happened to Cordy in the past few years, all of it, was planned."
Skip: "You really think it stops with her, amigo? Do you have any concept of how many lines have to intersect in order for a thing like this to play out? How many events have to be nudged in just the right direction? Leaving Pylea. Your sister. Opening the wrong book. Sleeping with the enemy. Gosh, I love a story with scope."
Wes: "An impossible birth to make one possible."
Angel: "Being inside a human makes it vulnerable, doesn't it? That's why it had to stay hidden. Why it needed to create something stronger to pour itself into."
Gunn: "Wait, so the big nasty inside of Cordy is going to give birth to itself?"
Skip: "Circle of life. It's a beautiful thing.'
Skip: "All you gotta do is find Cordelia and chop her head off."
Angel: "Has to be another way."
Skip: "Sure. Stab her in the heart, kidney... a couple of pokes in the lung."
Angel: "A way that won't kill Cordy in the process."
Wes: "What do you want to do?"
Skip: "The only thing he can do. Kill the woman he loves and save the world. Times like this, really gotta suck being you."
Connor: "They hate us because we're special."
Anna: "I don't hate you. Please..."
Darla: "They're scared because of what you've done, not because of what you are."
Darla: "You have a choice, Connor. That is something more precious than you'll ever know."
Connor: "What choice? They're hunting us like animals!"
Darla: "Because you're acting like one. As a vampire, I killed without mercy or remorse because I didn't have a soul. What's your excuse?"
Fred: "If we really are just pieces being moved around a board..."
Gunn: "Then we'll kick it over and start a new game. Look, monochrome can yap all he wants about no-name's cosmic plan but here's a little something I picked up rubbin mojos these past couple of years: the final score can't be rigged. I don't care how many players you grease, that last shot always comes up a question mark. But here's the thing - you never know when you're taking it. It could be when you're dunking it out with the legion of doom or just crossing the street deciding where to have brunch. So you just treat it all like it was up to you, the world in the balance, cause you never know when it is."
Fred: "You been practicing that?"
Gunn: "Little bit."
Darla: "Listen to your heart."
Connor: "She didn't do anything. We should let her go."
Cordy: "No, we shouldn't. We need her, Connor. Our baby- "
Connor: "Shouldn't be anointed with innocent blood."
Cordy: "Anointed? Who's been filling your head with big confusing words?"
Darla: "Don't let her in."
Cordy: "It's Angel."
Cordy: "Trying to turn you against me with a cheap vision of... Darla."
Connor: "You can see her?"
Angel: "Oh, my god... You're beautiful."
