Quotes[edit | edit source]

  • Angel: But she's not finished baking yet! I gotta wait 'til she's done baking. You know, 'til she finds herself. 'Cause that's the drill. Fine. I'm waiting patiently, and meanwhile... the Immortal's eating cookie dough!
  • Andrew Wells: Uh, Spike, is Angel crying?
  • Spike: No. Not yet.


  • Angel: Ours is a forever love.
  • Spike: I had a relationship with her, too.
  • Angel: Okay, sleeping together is not a relationship.
  • Spike: It is if you do it enough times.


  • Spike: The Immortal?
  • Angel: I mean, come on!
  • Spike: She's smarter than that.
  • Angel: She'd never fall for a centuries-old guy with a dark past who may or may not be evil.


  • Angel: I helped save the world, you know.
  • Spike: Like I haven't.
  • Angel: Yeah, but I've done it a lot more.
  • Spike: Oh, please.
  • Angel: I closed the Hellmouth.
  • Spike: I've done that.
  • Angel: Yeah, you wore a necklace. You know, I helped kill the Mayor, and, uh, Jasmine...
  • Spike: Do those really count as saving the world?
  • Angel: I stopped Acathla. That saved the world.
  • Spike: Buffy ran you through with a sword.
  • Angel: Yeah, but I made her do it. I signaled her with my eyes.
  • Spike: She killed you. I helped her. That one counts as mine.
