This was one of my favorite moments from Five by Five (Angel, Season 1), when Faith drops the bloody glass shard to the street after torturing Wesley. I’m not sure if I interpret this the same way that Joss Whedon meant it, but I always see this as a quiet moment when Faith allows her remorse over her actions to grip her for a moment. It’s peaceful in a way, but also very powerful.
Also, Eliza Dushku looks simply gorgeous here :)
Here’s the plan: we go in, I start hitting people hard in the face, see where it takes us.
Angel to Wes and Cordelia
(Angel, Season 1: She)
She was curious. That’s why Fred didn’t put [Illyria’s sarcophagus] into containment immediately. How things work, what makes them special. She was always searching for what other people couldn’t see. She was just curious. I think I hate her a little for that.Wesley to Harmony [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)
Alexis Denisof: When I watched that shot, I just thought it was Angel and Spike staring at Wesley’s rear end.
Joss Whedon: Yes, well, and why wouldn’t they? I mean, [your rear end] is very fine!
—From the episode commentary for “A Hole in the World” (Angel, Season 5).
[Actually, Angel was asking “Fred and Wes?” to Spike. He was one of the last people in Wolfram and Hart to find out.]
“The sky’s gonna open,
People gonna pray and crawl,
It’s gonna rain down fire,
It’s gonna burn us all…
The sky’s gonna open,
People gonna pray and sing,
I can’t feel a thing…”
-LA Song by Lindsey McDonald (Christian Kane)
Sung in Dead End (AtS Season 2)
-Screencaps from Apocalypse, Nowish (AtS Season 4)
“I’m not quite finished!”
Wesley when Gunn punches him after hearing Wes’s theory of how Gunn’s a vampire
(Angel, Season 4: Spin the Bottle) <—the Angel episode when all of AI is regressed to their younger self
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)
Angel, Season 3 (Home?) Thanks, fangirluniverse!
[After translating the “father will kill the son” prophecy, Wesley goes to the Loa (by means of a “portal” at a fast-food restaurant) to confirm his findings.]
Loa: That [Angel] will devour his child is certain…the dark question you harbor is only, when?
Wesley: No…the dark question I harbor is, how do I stop it?
Loa: It cannot be stopped!
Wesley: It has to be stopped! There must be a way—
Loa: [Knocks Wesley onto the ground with a flash of lightning] Your insolence is displeasing!
Wesley: [Picking himself up] You try chatting with a cranky hamburger!
(Angel, Season 3: Loyalty)
