Quotes[edit | edit source]
- Illyria: You reek of frustration. Curls off of you like smoke.
- Spike: Actually, love, we call that scotch. Twelve-year Lagavulin if I'm not mistaken. Good choice.
- Wesley Wyndam-Pryce: She doesn't understand our world. She needs someone to guide her. She needs...
- Angel: When was the last time you slept? You're not her savior. I need you here, working, not off drinking yourself into a coma, chasing ghosts. Fred's dead, Wes. You're still alive. Start acting like it.
- Angel: You got to do what you can to protect your family. I learned that from my father.
- Wesley Wyndam-Pryce: She's either counting oxygen molecules or analyzing the Petri dish she just put into her mouth. Or sleeping. I can never quite tell.
- Angel: You sure this is a good idea?
- Wesley Wyndam-Pryce: We have plenty of Petri dishes.
- Angel: She really put a whole petri dish in her mouth?
- Spike: Oh, old broody-pants got you wound up, eh? Keep in mind, he can't get laid without maybe going crazy. Makes it funny.
- Connor: You almost broke that guy in half! That was awesome!
