Cordelia: What are you doing?
Wesley: Oh, knocking things over, driving away business… You know, the usual.

*

Angel: Uh, Wesley, that is my coat, right?

*

Angel: Why is Wesley wearing my coat?

*

Angel: Uh, Wesley, can I have my coat back?

Darla: What do you expect? They’re only human.
Angel: You better embrace that mediocrity, honey. You’re talking about your own kind now.

*

Gunn: My Uncle Theo always said, “Never buy a dull plow, and never get in the middle of a religious war.”
Cordelia: Do you really have an Uncle Theo?
Gunn: Nah. But it’s still good advice.

*

Cordelia: What if, every time you identified a demon in one of your big old books we give you ten bucks…or a chicken pot pie?
Wesley: Wait, I have another idea, no! Get a vision.
Cordelia: Well it’s not like you can hit me in the head and “wham!” it happens.
Wesley: What if we test that theory with one of my big old books?

*

Wesley: (talking about Angel) Oh, he’s an eccentric, all the great ones are. Sherlock Holmes, Phillip Marlowe…
Jenkins: Those are fictional characters.
Wesley: Right you are, which gives Angel rather a leg up when you come to think of it.

Elf’s Many Things About Angel - Untouched

* Lila’s a leopard. Meaning that she’ll never change her spots. Sneaky and sly and spying on coworkers…

* Love that Wes and Cordy have gone from magnetic attraction to sibling rivalry.

* Hmm… Psionic girl with red hair. Think her name’s Jean?

* The meeting between Angel and the girl reminds me of SPN.

* Nice. Lila sets her up to be eaten. Obviously a test of her powers, but if she’d failed? Not okay.

* It’s always nice when the client comes to you, isn’t it?

* I love them showing that Angel couldn’t come into the room until the baddy’d died at the hospital. Cute effect.

* Coffee before Starbucks took over the world…

* I do like Cordelia (the original Me Girl) as the world’s conscience.

* Every time Lila loses, it’s just a little more enjoyable.

Elf’s Many Things About Angel - First Impressions

* I forgot how freaky strange Darla was at the beginning of this season. Dang…

* I do love the character of David. He’s such an adorable geek. And I love how he makes Cordelia cross her eyes in want. ;)

* Even if they’d not told us, it would have been obvious that the spell on Angel was a Wolfram & Heart spell of some sort.

* Cordelia’s change is really pronounced in this episode. In the best way possible. It’s so fun watching her try to save Gunn.

* Demons hiding in plain sight everywhere in LA, but then, I suppose that’s not a huge surprise, especially for LA.

* Gunn’s definitely in meltdown mode. Glad he’s got someone trying to save him from himself. But he’ll want to be saved or it won’t work. No matter how pigheaded Cordelia can be.

Movie Review Update

I had planned on writing a review after seeing Captain America: The Winter Soldier today instead of our regularly scheduled Angel posts, but my brain has ceased to function after watching it. I loved the movie, I laughed, I cried, and I think I need to see it again before I can properly form my thoughts about it. If you have not had a chance to watch it, I highly recommend going to see it sooner rather than later, particularly if you are a regular watcher of the Agents of SHIELD show since there are some interconnections there. Run, don’t walk, to see this movie!!

Spoiling the Spinoff

2.4-Untouched

*Back to Wolfram and Hart…

*Ooooh, powerful victim…witch maybe?

*So, she’s staying with Lilah and is part of the Wolfram and Hart plan…hmmm

*Cordy looks distrustful of Bethany. She’s pretty shrewd…

*Follow that van!

*And yet another episode about daddy issues…Joss, your issues are showing…

*Wait, so was that Lilah’s big plan? Send in a “slutty” girl to seduce Angel so he’d turn back into Angelus? That is so douchey of her…If that was the plan.

*I feel like I don’t have much to say about this episode. It wasn’t a bad one, it’s just a subject that’s pretty creepy…As Cordy says, there’s not enough yuck in the world.

Spoiling the Spinoff

2.3-First Impressions

*Huh??? This must be a dream sequence…

*Oh my gosh, that guy’s back!! And he has a sword…and a cape…wow.

*Geez, Gunn’s in a perpetual bad mood…Very rude to Cordy and Wes.

*They’re right, three vampires should be easier for them to take out. And I would just like to take a moment to point out that Cordy took out one of them on her own, thank you very much!

*That’s the first time Cordy has seen somebody they know in a vision, I think.

*Poor Cordy, and of course Angel doesn’t pick up. And Wes’s pager is broken…

*Awww, Poor Cordy to the solo rescue!

*Cordy and Gunn…hmmm, do I ship this? It works in a weird way…

*Oh Cordy…please stop talking about being a working girl…just no…

*Wow, this is the Super Cordy to the Rescue! episode…I love it!

*I bet if first season Buffy Cordy saw herself now, she wouldn’t even recognize herself. I say she is the character who has grown the most since the beginning of the two shows.

*I agree, Gunn needs to learn to calm down or he’s gonna have a mental breakdown one day. Also, he probably just needs to get laid…

*I really liked this episode! It’s always fun to see two people who are very different forced to interact with one another and find common ground in spite of their differences.

Something Different For Next Week

Next week, Elf and I will be going to see Captain America: The Winter Soldier and won’t be meeting for our usual Spoilers meeting Saturday night. I can’t speak for Elf, but I intend to do a special edition of movie spoilers that I promise I will put behind a cut in case you haven’t had a chance to see it yet. We’ll be back in two weeks with a new set of Angel episodes!

-Foodie and Elf

Bethany: So, are you and Angel…?
Cordelia: Oh, no. I like my men less broody and more spendy.

*

Wesley: I mentioned her father.
Cordelia: Well, who’s her father?
Wesley: No, it’s… The sort of trauma that can produce this level of psychic power usually involves abuse of some kind - very early on. You’d mentioned a sexual vibe, she made that crack about family business. Statistically speaking, the father was the best guess.
Cordelia: There’s not enough yuck in the world.

*

Bethany: What are you?
Angel: I’ve come to help you. My name is Angel.
Bethany: Ha. Ha. Great, I stabbed an angel. Now I’m really never getting into heaven.

*

Angel: Do you know how hard it is to think straight with a rebar through your torso?
Cordelia: Actually, I do. Benefits of a Sunnydale education.

*

Cordelia: There’s something. She’s got a vibe, I’m getting a vibe. She’s vibey.

*

Bethany: I could make you happy.
Angel: You wouldn’t like me when I’m happy.

March 29th, 2014

Cordelia: You know, you can’t just dismiss me like that. I know what I’m talking about.
Gunn: Oh, you mean like how you knew Joey was a demon?
Cordelia: That was an honest mistake. I was just trying to help you.
Gunn: Thanks for the help. Always enhances a guy’s rep when some skinny white beauty queen comes to his rescue in front of his crew.

*

Wesley: Now, about the naked thing.
Angel: I’ll get dressed.
Wesley: Much appreciated.

*

Cordelia: Oh, this place is never gonna get clean.
Wesley: Buck up. It’s just a little dust.
Cordelia: Oh, this isn’t mere dust. This is “Son of Dust”. This is the kind of dust that spawns countless generations of little baby dust. I give up.
Wesley: I suppose will just have to move our offices back into your apartment, then.
Cordelia: And, I’m dusting.

*

Cordelia: Maybe we can help.
Gunn: You two? I find Deevak, I’m gonna need more than C3PO and Stick Figure Barbie backin’ me up, no offense.
