Quotes from To Shanshu In L.A.
Cordelia: "Are you still trying to figure out that word? What's taking so long?"
Wesley: "Gee, I don't know, Cordelia. The Prophecies of Aberjian were only written over the last 4000
years, in a dozen different languages, some of which aren't even human! Why don't we just get a Falanjoid
demon in here, suck the brain out of my skull. Maybe that would speed things up."
Cordelia: "He sure gets testy when he's translating."
Wesley: "This word is pivotal to what it prophesises about the vampire with a soul."
Cordelia: "Well, hurry up and figure out what it says about Angel, because...I wanna know what it says about me.
If there is torrid romance in my future...massive wealth? If I have to, I'll settle for enviable fame."
Wesley: "This is an ancient sacred text, not a magic eight ball."
Cordelia: "Nobody gets my humour."
Angel: "I thought it was funny."
Wesley: "I think I know what it means."
Cordelia: "A wealthy man with just...no life at all?"
Cordelia: "Angel's going to die?"
Angel: "Oh. Anything else?"
Cordelia: "He certainly took that well. Is this that opportune time to talk about my raise?"
Wesley: "It's probably years off...uh, after the coming battles."
Cordelia: "My raise?"
Wesley: "Painful killer demon."
Cordelia: "Enough with the scratch and sniff visions. Thanks. I ever meet those Powers That Be, I'm gonna punch 'em in the nose! Do you think they have a nose?"
Officer #1: "Do you want some backup, detective?"
Officer #2: "Or a Ouija board?"
Wesley: "He's got a soul, but he's not a part of the world. He can never be part of the world."
Cordelia: "Because he doesn't want stuff? That's ridiculous. Hey, I want that!"
Wesley: "What connects us to life?"
Cordelia: "Right now, I'm going with donuts."
Angel: "This isn't about the law, this is about a little thing called life. Now I'm sorry about your father. But I didn't
kill your father. And I'm sick and tired of you blaming me for everything you can't handle! You want to be enemies? Try me."
Female Oracle: "I've been dead a while. So far I don't like it."
Angel: "These people mean a lot to me."
Gunn: "I'm getting that."
Lilah: "Aren't we going to be late?"
Holland: "You never want to be on time for a ritual. The chanting, the blood rites...they go on forever."
Lilah: "Remember when Robert Price let the senior partners down and they made him eat his liver? I don't know what made me think of that."
Angel: "Don't believe everything you're foretold."
Cordelia: "I know what's out there now. We have a lot of evil to fight, a lot of people to help...I just hope skin and bones there can figure out
what those lawyers raised sometime before the prophecy kicks in and you croak. That was the old me, wasn't it?"
Angel: "I like them both."
Wesley: "Uh, oops. I may have made a tiny mistake. The word 'shanshu' that I said meant you were going to die? Actually, I think it means you are going to live."
Cordelia: "As far as tiny mistakes go, that's *not* one."
Cordelia: "Wow. Angel, human."
Angel: "That'd be nice."
Cordelia: "Yeah, break out the champagne, Pinnochio! This is a big deal."
Angel: "I guess it is."
Cordelia: "Typical. I hook up with the only person in history who ever came to LA to get older."
Lilah: "We are all very pleased you're here. I know it's a bit confusing, but it's going to be better soon...a lot better, Darla."
