Tropes used in Angel/Recap/S04/E08 Habeas Corpses include:

Gunn: What the hell was that?
Wes: Zombies.
Gunn: Yeah, thanks for the newsflash, Captain Obvious.


Lilah: (on the phone) Find that Beast, or I swear to God, I will...
Gavin: (whispers to Lilah) Boil you alive.
Lilah: (whispers to Gavin) Shut up! (to phone, slowly) Boil you alive.


Wesley: There is a line, Lilah; black and white, good and evil.
Lilah: Funny thing about black and white. You mix it together and you get gray. And it doesn't matter how much white you try and put back in, you're never gonna get anything but gray.


Lilah: The building automatically shuts down under full scale attack.
Wes: When you say "shuts down..."
[Through the office's windows, metal shutters can be seen closing over the outside of the building.]
Lilah: Windows, doors, air vents. Nobody gets in or out.


Connor: What's a zombie?
Angel: It's an undead thing.
Connor: Like you?
Angel: No, zombies are slow-moving, dimwitted things that crave human flesh.
Connor: (smirking) Like you.
Angel: No! It's different. Trust me. Come on.


Lilah: Go downstairs, and check it out. [Gavin hesitates] Gavin, ask yourself this question -- what are you more afraid of, a giant murderous demon... or me?

  • Wall Crawl: Gunn wonders how they're going to climb up the escape chute into Wolfram & Hart. Angel leaps into the air and clambers up the shaft, then chucks down a rope.

Gunn: Show off.

  • We Can Rule Together: The Senior Partners want to make a deal with the Beast, who unfortunately for them isn't interested.
  • White Shirt of Death: Or in this case, the White Sheet of Death. All the Wolfram & Hart employees seem to be accompanied by bloody paperwork.
