Cute moment: Wes checking out the bruise Faith gave Cordelia in Five by Five (screencap from Sanctuary).
“The girl of your dreams loved you. That’s more than most people ever get.”
—Harmony to Wesley (Angel, Season 5: Shells)
[With Illyria in his apartment, Wesley dreams about Fred after her death]
“This is only the first layer. Don’t you wanna see how deep I go?”
—Fred (Angel, Season 5: Underneath)
Wes: We all get what we deserve. You and Holtz deserved each other. You two have so much in common: pain, loss, deep seated lack of anything approaching humor.
Justine: I don’t know. We had a few laughs. Getting you to steal Angel’s baby, now that was a good one.
Wes: Better than tricking Connor into sinking his father to the bottom of the ocean?
Justine: Well, that was worth a couple of yuks too.
Wes: Not much of a plan though, was it, really? [Justine quietly picks up a heavy wrench to attack Wes] Easy to figure out which door to kick in when Angel went missing. And not much harder to persuade you to betray everything Holtz had given his life for. Not that it was worth very much. Well, you should know. You’re the one that ended it. [Justine lunges forward to hit Wesley, who doesn’t even turn around] I’ll take away your bucket.
(Angel, Season 4: Deep Down)
Justine: The great Wesley Wyndam-Price, the shining beacon of all that’s good and pure. But wait, no! That’s before he started banging the enemy and keeping the slave-girl in his closet.
Wes: You were always a slave, Justine. You just couldn’t see the chains.
Justine: Thanks, Swami. [Puts her hands together and kisses them] I’ll meditate on that.
(Angel, Season 4: Deep Down)
[After having sex for the first time]
Lilah: I’m starting to like you, Wes. Don’t go making more of this than it is. I’m not one of the doe-y eyed girls of Angel Investigations. Don’t be thinking about me when I’m gone.”
Wes: I wasn’t thinking about you when you were here.
(Angel, Season 3: Tomorrow)
I really like this episode because there’s a very interesting combination of awkwardness and more serious issues in it. Two relationships—Fred/Gunn and Cordy/Groo—come out into the open, leaving Wesley and Angel out in the cold. But the really touching thing is, both of them managed to accept it and, in their own way, give either Fred/Gunn or Cordy/Groo their blessing (Wes told Gunn to take care of Fred, and Angel gave Cordy money to take herself/Groo out on vacation). Of course it hurt them both to some degree to step back and take themselves out of the picture, but in this episode, they were also able to find some peace because a) they trusted the other guy involved, and b) they wanted Fred/Cordy to be happy.
[After Angel and Groo team up to kill a demon, Groo slays it in direct sunlight as Angel watches from the shadows]
Wes: …You think [Groo] could replace you.
Angel: I don’t know. Seems to me, here is a guy who can do everything I can…and a few things I can’t.
Wes: That’s not true.
Angel: You saw what happened this afternoon. If Groo hadn’t been there—
Wes: Then the rest of us would have. Angel, you’re the reason we’ve all come together. It’s your mission which animates us. We each contribute, it’s true, but you, you’re unique. (Indicates the bookshelves) You’re like one of these rare volumes: one of a kind.
Proprietor: I’ve got three of [the book you’re looking for].
[The small smile that was growing on Angel’s face immediately slides off]
[Angel, Season 3: Couplet]
Wesley: [to Gunn] We should clean the wound. You want something for the pain?
Gunn: [smiling at Fred] What pain?
(And in the background, poor Wes’s heart breaks a little more)
[Angel, Season 3: Waiting in the Wings]
<—Angel, Season 3. Probably the most important piece of paper ever featured in the entire series :D
