Habeas Corpses

Fred: "I thought you were dead. I got back here and it was empty and I panicked and the radio and the fires..."
Gunn: "I know, baby, I know. Me, too. It was like the end of the world out there and all I wanted was you."

Gunn: "Thanks for you opinion and I don't remember asking."

Fred: "What about Cordelia and Connor? Has anyone checked in on them? Angel?"
Angel: "They're fine."
Lorne: "You saw them?... Man looks like he was hit by a tank."

Connor: "Morning. Did the world end?"
Cordy: "Not exactly."

Cordy: "You're very special, Connor. Last night will always be special. It's something we both neded... but it happened because of unusual circumstances. You understand what I'm saying?"
Connor: "Yeah, that it was special."
Cordy: "That it can't happen again."
Connor: "But... why?"
Cordy: "You're Angel's son. It rained fire last night - never a good sign - and a giant demony beast crawled out from the earth where you were born."
Connor: "You think it's my fault."
Cordy: "No!"

Cordy: "Don't be... look, all I said was-"
Connor: "That I can't be with you."
Cordy: "Connor..."

Lilah: "I left you a couple hundred messages last night. Don't feel obligated to return any of them."

Wesley: "After what I saw last night, I believe a day of reckoning has arrived."
Lilah: "And you just reckon you'll toss in with the good guys?"

Wesley: "There is a line, Lilah. Black and white, good and evil."
Lilah: "Funny thing about black and white... you mix it together and you get gray. And it doesn't matter how much white you try and put back in. You're never going to get anything but gray. And I don't see your Texas gal-pal wearing that color. Come to think of it, she prefers black."

Cordy: "The sky should not be made of fire."

Lilah: "-find that beast or I swear to god I will..."
Gavin: "Boil you alive."
Lilah: "Shut up!... boil you alive."

Lilah: "The senior partners want us to try and cut a deal with it."
Gavin: "You can't be serious."
Lilah: "Well, it wants the same things we do. An apocalypse, an end to the world, yadda, yadda, yadda. The partners feel it might speed things along and save a few bucks."

Connor: "I want to know why I'm here. What I am."
Lilah: "Timeless question. And one we're more than happy to answer."

Gavin: "This is Gavin Park to the front dest, over. Come in, front desk."
Security: "This is the front desk, Mr. Park. We've got some kind of... oh, no! Oh, my god!"
Lilah: "Tell him to stop whining and make a report."
Security: "Send backup! Somebody, please..."

Lilah: "Go downstairs and check it out... Gavin, ask yourself this question: what are you more afraid of? A giant murderous demon... or me?"
Gavin: "I'll be right back."

Lilah: "You have any idea what this thing wants?"
Connor: "Everybody dead."

Gavin: "Uh... hi."

Beast: "Connor..."

Wesley: "What's that?"
Lilah: "That's the fat lady singing."

Lilah: "What are you stopping for? You've got to be kidding me. Will it kill him?"
Wesley: "No, but it might distract him for a moment."

Lilah: "Connor is trapped inside."
Wesley: "What?"
Lilah: "I don't know if he's alive. He's in the third floor conference room. Not that there's a way back in... I just thought you should know."

Cordy: "I'm ready to crackle pop myself. The last 24 haven't exactly been normal. We're all tired."
Angel: "Wonder why?"

Gunn: "We're assuming it's a big connect-the-dot that Connor and the devilly guy have this alley in common but isn't this alley right behind Caritas - or at least what's left of it?"
Lorne: "Yeah, that whole block is a big fat interdimensional happenin hot spot."
Cordy: "Except this thing didn't emerge from a portal so much as a pothole."

Cordy: "Oh, my god! Connor? Why would he be in there? I don't understand."
Angel: "There's lots of things I don't understand. We're going in after him."

Cordy: "He's going to be fine, you know. Connor's a champion, like you. He's special."
Angel: "Right. Like me. Special."

Angel: "Somebody should stay here and mind the store."
Lorne: "Oh, me, me, me! Sergeant Stay-at-Home, volunteering for duty, sir."

Angel: "Look! I don't know the answers. Don't even know most of the questions. But what I do know is that I have to go into Wolfram & Hart and find my son. Now as far as us versus the big bad is concerned... there's only one smart way to play it. We see it, we run like hell."

Angel: "Stay here with Lorne."
Cordy: "No. Connor's in danger and I-"
Angel: "Cordelia. I don't want you there. It's too dangerous. Way too dangerous. I can't risk it... Fred, get a move on."

Lorne: "Happy hunting! We'll stay here and keep the home fires burning. Bake some nice healing muffins."

Fred: "Oh, my god... I know they all worked for an evil company but this is..."

Fred: "Sorry, feeling a little goosy."
Wesley: "For good reason."

Gunn: "I don't get it. Wolfram & Hart is evil, the big bad is evil... why go all Terminator on your own team?"
Angel: "Maybe all it wants is to eliminate the competition."
Fred: "Doesn't give us much to look forward to, does it?"

Angel: "Gavin... how did...?"
Connor: "He looks dead."
Angel: "He is dead. Technically undead. A zombie."
Connor: "What's a zombie?"
Angel: "It's an undead thing."
Connor: "Like you?"
Angel: "No! Zombies are slow-moving, dim-witted things that crave human flesh."
Connor: "Like you."
Angel: "No! It's different. Trust me."

Gunn: "What the hell was that?"
Wesley: "Zombies."
Gunn: "Yeah, thanks for the newsflash, Captain Obvious."

Angel: "The only way to kill a zombie is to stop its brain activity. Cut off its head, smash in its skull... luckily they're slow and stupid so we have a decent chance of beating them... Unless, of course, there's hundreds of them."

Fred: "Why are they doing this?"
Wesley: "I don't know. Perhaps it's some building lockdown protocol or some security voodoo."

Connor: "We can make it."
Angel: "Not all of us. Too many dead men walking."

Gunn: "Sounds kinda portally."

Angel: "And there's a little girl there... or something old and evil that likes to pretend she's a little girl."

Gunn: "So fight seven floors of evil lawyer zombies or sweet talk a nasty little girl. You know where my heart's at."
Fred: "Yeah, but I gotta disagree. I vote for the White Room."

Wesley: "Do you remember the code?"
Angel: "Hello? Photographic memory."

Gunn: "That's Gavin. I know that guy."
*He steps out of the elevator and decapitates him*
Gunn: "I hate seeing someone I know like that. Even someone I know I hate."

Girl: "The answer is among you."

Angel: "Home... she sent us."

Lorne: "Well, hail the conquering heroes and how the hell did you just do that?"

Gunn: "So what's it say about the Big Bad Wolf if he can just stride right in and suck the energy out of Evil Red Riding Hood?"
Wesley: "I don't know. Other than it's going to take a force far smarter and stronger than us to defeat it."
Lorne: "Oh, like there's a lot of that just lying around."

Cordy: "I'm just glad that everyone's safe and together again."
Angel: "Me, too. Now... take your new boyfriend and get the hell out of here."
Cordy: "Oh, god..."
