Quotes[edit | edit source]

  • Angel: Don't be stupid. I'm that guy and the most beautiful woman I've ever seen is making eyes at me? It's either a bachelor party or a scam.
  • Cordelia Chase: What did you call me?
  • Angel: I'm sorry. You're not stupid.
  • Cordelia Chase: No, after that?


  • Angel: Oh yeah. I saw their production of Giselle in 1890. Cried like a baby. And I was evil!


  • Charles Gunn: That would also explain the precision, and the athleticism. I mean, some of those jumps... You know, I was cool before I met y'all.


  • Cordelia Chase: Up to his ass in demon gore, fine, but ask him to mack on a hottie and he wigs. My champion, ladies and gentlemen.



  • Cordelia Chase: So! What's up with you? Hey, you went with the dark colors today! It's a look.
  • Angel: Ask me why I'm smiling.
  • Cordelia Chase: I will because it's scaring me.


  • Angel: Back in the day, I'd always get box seats... or eat the people who had 'em.
  • Cordelia Chase: Don't let's reminisce. We're here. Enjoy.
