  • Dresses the Same: Cordelia complains when she sees a girl at the youth centre wearing her blouse, unaware that Angel gave away her clothes to the shelter in "Blood Money".

Cordelia: The crook at the store said it was one of a kind! Big fibber!"

Telephone voice: "All circuits are busy. Please hang up and try your call again."
Cordy: "This is no time for circuits busy! So, don't tell me circuits are busy. If the circuits are busy -- get some new circuits now!"

Merle: "Jesus, man! I mean, can't you, you know, knock?"
Angel: "You don't make that funny expression when I knock, or if you do I don't see it.

And subverted when Angel is watching Wesley and Gunn at the hospital, turns to make a discreet exit and finds himself face-to-face with Cordelia.

Cordy: "Too bad it takes a gunshot wound to make you give a crap. Wesley doesn't need you right now. We don't need you. You walked away. Do us a favor and just stay away."
