"Deep Down".

We start off with everyone gathered round the dinner table. Angel is at the head of it with Cordy by his side. They interact like a couple here, and are obviously the Mom and Dad of this family. Then we are shown that it's all a hallucination. Angel is stuck in a box in the ocean and no one knows where Cordy is. Angel continues to dream and he goes back to Point Dume where he and Cordy were supposed to meet. He's waiting for her and this time she shows up. She tells him he knows her better than anyone else does and that she loves him. He kisses her, then ends up biting her. Angel wakes up screaming inside the box. He has other dreams of hurting Connor, which shows us that he fears he always ends up hurting people that he loves. He is eventually rescued by Wes. In the end, he finally gets back home and asks Connor one question, did he do anything to Cordelia? Connor says no and Angel throws him out for what he did to him. Angel is all messed up and weak, and all he wants and needs is Cordy, needs to find her NOW. We then finally get to see her when the camera pans up into the clouds. And what does our girl have to say? "I am so bored."

That's about it, not much Cordy here as it's more of an ep dealing with Angel's feelings/thoughts "deep down" inside of himself.

Ground State

For an episode really all about Cordelia, she didnt have a lot to do. Here is her lines.

What are you? Deficient? Get me out of here!

Charisma delivered it very well. And she looks gorgeous...

Oh, she also got to say 'Previously on Angel'

The House Always Wins

Well, we get more of her this episode... and she contributes to the plot...

Have to say i loved the bit in the alley:

ANGEL
I know you're there, watching me.

CORDELIA
Oh my God! Angel, you can hear me? I so love you. You don't know what it's been like—

FRED
We weren't spying...

CORDELIA
Oh, for crap's sake!

Then, she reappears at the casino...

You're picking up on it, too, aren't you, Angel? Somethings wrong with those people. They could probably use your help. So that's got me wondering... where's that keen sense of perception as far as I'm concerned? What am I, out of the range of your super-vampire senses? Angel!

Does Cordelia actually know what's the matter with those people? As she says you're picking up on it, too. Which makes me think that she's picking up on it, rather than knowing... weird. Anyway, she still helps out, so we know for certain that this is definitely Cordelia, and may be the last we see of her...

Oh. That's just great. I mean, what's the point of being an all-seeing powerful whachamawhoosit if I'm not allowed to intervene? My friends are gonna die. I mean, what am I supposed to—Angel. God, look what they've done to you. If I could just get you into that room, maybe— Think, bubblehead. How do I—

Cordelia Chase - Self confessed bubblehead...

Anyway, then she reappears at the end of the episode, in the same clothes, but she does actually look different from when she was up in the clouds... is this an omen?

And she's lost her memory...

Bert, ploughing a way through the crap of season 4 like a Juggernaut through a pile of feathers...

Slouching Towards Bethlehem

It's hard to find anything positive to say about any of the episodes at the moment, but I'll do my best...

Cordelia: So we know each other?
Angel: Yeah, really well.
Cordelia: OK, um... who am I?


Things that Cordy remembers:

Numbers. Fair enough pretty basic.
Animals. Ok, a little bit random, but not totally unsurprising.
Flossing. Wha? Well, she always did have a thing about her teeth...

Flashback to The Shroud of Rahmon. Cordy is staring at a reflection of herself. Her voice is all dreamy and slow. "My teeth are so big!"

Sorry, i'm going for anything that can take me away from season 4... anyway, back to Amnesia!Cordy...

CORDELIA
The ballet? For real? You and me?

ANGEL
We all went, but yeah. (beat) Pretty special. (Cordy walks around room) I thought maybe you'd remember because... It's too bad. We had, uh, a really good time. Working together too.


Practising being Cordy...

CORDELIA
Cordelia. (chipper) Hi. I'm Cordy. I'm Cordelia Chase. I'm— Just breathe. Just breathe. (sighs, walks to a nearby table) Sunnydale. (opens yearbook, sees picture of her as cheerleader) OK, popular. No real surprise there. (flips to messages written by classmates)
(reading) "Cordelia, homeroom was fun. Too bad it burnt to the ground."
What?


Flashback to Buffy's Graduation Day Part 2. As the School blows up, Cordy stakes her first Vamp...

Anyway, then Cordy runs out and knocks out some lawyers...

CORDELIA
Wow. How did I—? (beat) I am a spy. (Angel sighs) I get it now. You're all spies. Probably all Russian. And you've brainwashed me, and want me to believe we're friends so I'll spill the beans about some nano-techno-thingy that you want.

GUNN
So... I look Russian to you?

CORDELIA
Black Russian.

ANGEL
That's a drink.


Actually, now that i think about it, there were some good quotes this ep...

Safe? Is that some kind of joke? Your friends here were just talking about murdering children. And there's-there's-there's singing and blood and-and pointy things. And did I mention the singing? I mean, what the hell is going on here, Angie?

Laugh at Angie...

CORDELIA
And you and me? We weren't—

ANGEL
Weren't...

CORDELIA
Together? (leans in for a kiss)

ANGEL
(leans in for a kiss) Not exactly.

CORDELIA
(suddenly pulling back before they kiss) Was I a nun?

ANGEL
A what?

CORDELIA
Were we not a happy family because I was a nun?


Then she hands him a bunch of crosses, he smokes and she screams, she runs, straight into Lorne who defends himself...

LORNE: Hey, if this was about that missing lingerie, that was for a friend. Ok, that is proof that he's either gay, or in love with Cordy... Not Fred... or anyone. Cordy, he's taking her lingerie!!!! That's like the 7th stage of love....

CORDY: That's... everything? (sighs) It all makes perfect sense now. (stands, paces) I was a cheerleader, a princess and a warrior. And I have visions and super powers and I'm the target of an evil law firm because I've spent the last three months living on a higher plane, fighting for the forces of good, who wage a battle against (counts on her fingers) demons and evilies and squishy bug babies, 'cause all that stuff's real and that's the world I live in. And I think I know why I don't remember any of this 'cause, hey— who'd want to!

Flashback to Buffy's Faith, Hope & Trick. Xander: Can she cram complex issues into a nutshell or what?

Whoops, I'm doing it again, aren't I? Sorry...

Anyway, then they get her to sing for Lorne and she sings "The Greatest Love of All."

Flashback to Buffy's The Puppet Show. Cordy - Ok, I'll stop, I promise!!!

Cordy: You keep telling me I was a higher being. Don't make me turn you into a rat.

Gunn: Can she do that?


Anyway, Cordy - herself bored with the goings on of Season 4 voices her opinions about the series finale. I don't want cookies.

Are you sure?

Look, I don't want cookies

Ok, ok, back to the ep, then...

Cordy: Then why am I so scared? (sits up in bed) I'm trying to remember little things. Do I have brothers and sisters? What's my favorite food? Who was my first kiss? There's nothing there. Just an empty... (starts to cry) Do you know how lonely that makes me feel?

Connor: You like shoes. And Donuts. And you're very brave.

Cordy: Really? Donuts?


Sorry, i couldn't resist...

Flashback to 'To Shanshu In LA'.
Wesley: What connects us to life?
Cordy: Right now, I'm going with donuts...


Right, well that's it from me for this episode... Sorry about all the flashbacks... But they were just so much better....

Supersymmetry was a Gunn/Fred centric episode.

So let's see what little Cordy bits we can find in the mess of crap that this ep was....

So, Cordy is trying to remember her life, she has pictures of everyone - but angel - thanks to Connor. And her parents turn up on screen for two tenths of a second...

Apparently, I'm a nester, 'cause this place is starting to look not entirely un-homey.

Then as she's nesting, Connor the little perv, looks right down her top. But we see from his point of view, so i'm tempted to forgive him...

Anyway, she may have lost her memory but she still has her fashion conscience.

I mean, I have my pictures and slippers and super-luscious peau de soie blouse, but why does it still feel like something's missing?

So, Connor takes her fighting and she stakes the Vamp, yay!!!

I just need some time to think, OK? (walks out)

Clever move. walk out on Connor, but why'd you go back? And she's figured something out. She's not stupid our Cordy and she just needs to doublecheck on something...

OK. Because there's something I need to know. Were we in love?

Whoever does Spin The Bottle can answer that one for you, love...

Thank you so much for doing all of these synopses. I have been following them and they have been uniformly delightful. Even the episodes you hate you find all the good stuff. Only a few more to go- great job!

Spin The Bottle

This was a good episode, we had Lorne telling all about it, and it makes me wonder, when was Lorne's bits set? Was this during season 5, cos he seemed pretty upset toward the end... anyways...

Now, I think that's the sort of thing I'd remember. Hey, maybe you wrote it down somewhere—a note on the fridge, maybe?

She doesnt remember who she is, but thank god she knows how to use her sarcasm. I'm going to say this now and get it over with. This is a good Cordy episode, considering who it's written by...

Cordy: And you think I wanted to meet you to tell you I was in love with you?

Angel: I really don't think you're ready to be dealing with—

Cordy: Or maybe I was gonna tell you to back off, buddy. (stands, walks toward him) Maybe you were coming on too strong—harassing me in the workplace. Maybe I had a red-hot restraining order in my mitts. (in his face) You ever think of that?


Cordy: You have no idea how much this is killing me. I know my ABC's, my history, I know who's President, and that I sorta wish I didn't. I know the name of every shoe store in the Beverly Center, but I don't— (sighs, starts to cry) I don't even recognize the sound of my own name.

Cordy: I don't care. Pain, side effects, this thing turns me into a mousaka... I'm happy. As long as I can remember I'm a mousaka.

Ok, Joss, stop looking, there's your spin off!!

Cordy: You have no idea how much this is killing me. I know my ABC's, my history, I know who's President, and that I sorta wish I didn't. I know the name of every shoe store in the Beverly Center, but I don't— (sighs, starts to cry) I don't even recognize the sound of my own name.

*

Cordy: I don't care. Pain, side effects, this thing turns me into a mousaka... I'm happy. As long as I can remember I'm a mousaka.

Ok, Joss, stop looking, there's your spin off!! A mousaka riddled with guilt because there's all this evil in the world and it can't do a thing to stop it. Apart from... be greek.

Cordy: So... you're perfectly OK with just wandering into my room any old time? That fits the "we were in love" theory and the harassment theory pretty much equally.

Wouldnt it be weird if he did turn into her stalker? Because that's a kind of Angel thing to do... if she had stayed with Groo would he have become her stalker?

Ok, then Cordy reverts to the old SunnyD Cordy and I suddenly get the feeling that this is going to be a long quote list...

Cordy: I'm Cordelia Chase, dumbass. And if this is some sort of sophomore hazing prank where I get doped up and left with a bunch of proto-losers, then my parents are gonna be suing the entire population of Sunnydale. Comprendez?

Gunn: What the hell are you talking about?

Cordelia: t's called kidnapping a minor, hair club for men. And if you think for a second I'm gonna be putting up with this, well, you don't know Cordelia— (Angel walks in the room) Cordelia... Hello, salty goodness.


*

Wesley: So who are you?

Gunn: I'm the guy that's gonna be kicking a whole mess of ass if somebody don't tell me what's going on.

Cordelia: What do they call you for short?


*

Cordelia: Oh, we're both in school. Oh, gosh, let's be best friends so I can lose all my cool ones.

Wesley: There's no need to be snippety, Miss.

Cordelia: This is a clarion call for snippety, Princess Charles.


*

Wesley: I happen to be head boy.

Cordelia: Gee, I wonder how you earned that nickname.

Wesley: A lot of effort, I don't mind saying.


*

Cordelia: Great. We've all got names. Bye, now.

*

Cordelia: Oh, God. Oh, God. My hair. My hair. The government gave me bad hair.

Oh. My. God. I fell off my chair laughing at this bit... it was so hilarious...

Angel: It's the devil. It's the devil.

Cordelia, still crying: My hair?


*

Gunn: I say we cut his damn head off.

Wesley: Thank you very much, Marie Antionette.

Gunn: What'd you call me?

Cordelia: Hey. Hey, you two want to stop the homo-erotic buddy cop session long enough to explain this. Wooden stakes. A guy with horns. And neither of you seems that surprised when things just keep getting weirder.

Fred: They really are. Have you got any weed?


Lol, i love the whole Fred being a pothead...

Cordelia: Keep explaining why we're not walking out that door?

Angel: Because they did something to us. They changed us.

Cordelia: You mean, this is about my hair?


The woman is obsessed...

Cordelia: Excuse me? Did I just get the brush off? Did a guy just bail on me? There really is some sort of horrible spell.

*

Angel: Well, I-I never touched her.

Cordelia: So, clearly, deviant.


*
Connor: Why did he attack you?

Cordelia: Well, who wouldn't? (rubs his shoulder, eyes him sexily) Look, you're a wee bit chess club for my usual beat, but you kill that freak and you're getting a big reward.


I thought I should just point out that this moment actually got into the Guiness Book of records, for the biggest collective shudder from a television audience. Said record was broken during trasmission of Apocalypse Nowish... aka Rain of Fire.

Anyway, memory back she runs away.

Angel: Were we in love?

Cordy: We were.


Ouch...


Ok, that's the last we saw of Cordy for just over a year, but stay tuned for my next post in just a few minutes which praises Charisma's work for the rest of the season...

Charisma moments from Apocalypse Nowish to Home. Ok, I know this is a sore point with some people, so I’ll keep it short and simple, a few quotes from each ep, maybe a comment, as you read them, don’t remember the storyline, remember the acting. That’s why I picked them out.

Apocalypse, Nowish: Cordy goes in search of the Beast and then invites something much worse into her own bed…

Cordy: Some old movie. Pod People or Mutant Pod Mushrooms or something, I don't know. I can't remember. I mean, I don't remember 'cause I was a kid when I saw it, so it's a little on the foggy, but natural fog. Foreshadowing…

Cordy: Is that the royal we, or the populous?

Cordy: Oh, Angel... I love you. I always will. You know that.
Angel: I don't suppose we could stop there?
Cordy I wish we could—more than anything—but I can't. When I got my memory back, everything came rushing in. Sunnydale, moving to Los Angeles, meeting you again. I wanted to tell you, but it was just too much.

Cordy: This wasn't normal. If that word actually applies to anything that ever happens to me. The visions are usually like a lawn sprinkler. This was like Niagra.

Cordy: But I can't remember how. Am I on vacation? Did I go cosmic AWOL? Did I do something to piss off the Powers That Be and get kicked out? Why am I here?

We’d all like answers to these questions, Cordy…

Then while not a popular move on Cordy’s part, we have to give Kudos to Charisma for filming THAT scene, without managing to look too disgusted. Although she’s clearly not enjoying it…

Habeas Corpses: Cordy and the population recover from a bad night. A hurt Angel tells her never to come back

Cordelia wakes first, facing Connor, then her eyes grow wide as she stares at him. She turns over with a shocked look on her face. And so say all of us.

Cordy: Listen up, daddy dearest. The fact that this hell beast you're all looking for crawled up out of the ground in the exact spot where your son was born seems precisely what we should be talking about right now.

Angel: Strange things happen.
Cordy: Like a vampire giving birth? Oh wait, that thing happened in the exact same spot too.

Cordy: I'm ready to crackle-pop myself. The last 24 haven't exactly been normal. We're all tired.
Angel: Wonder why.

Angel: Cordelia, I don't want you there. It's too dangerous. Way too dangerous. I can't risk it. Fred, get a move on.

Hehehe… they would NOT have said this in season 5…

She didn’t really have a lot and they kept her out of the fighting scenes, which I think added to the badness.

Long Day’s Journey: Cordy gets jealous of Gwen and goes all Lizzie Borden, although we won’t find that out for a few weeks…

Cordy: He knows, Connor. All right? With his super-smelling and super-Tom-peeping and—I don't even know what else, but... he knows. And he's extremely upset with both of us right now.

Gunn: See, I told you Connor can't be trusted. Look how weird he's made her.

Angel: Go away, Cordelia.
Cordy: Well, you know that never works.

Cordy: I was, but I'm back now. So you're going to have to suck it up and deal because things are going to hell, and—and you're the leader. So lead.

When Gwen enters. Cordy: I know who she is. Caught your little show on the omniscient higher plane channel. Thanks.

Oh, she wasn’t happy… Charisma really showed how pissed Cordy was with her eyes.

Cordy: Why did the small yucky man say that? He's joking, right?

Cordy: So, all this time alone together. Could be good for us. Maybe we should talk.
Angel: Maybe we shouldn’t.
Cordy: Valid point

Cordy: Yes. But what's impossible is thinking that somehow, someway, the Beast found where we were hiding, spiked the drinks we made ourselves, snuck through this unreasonably large apartment on the tippie-toes of his cloven feet right up to the vault and killed poor Manny, unseen and unheard.

Awakening: The real Cordy returns, but it’s all part of Angel’s – and the viewer’s – vision of perfect happiness.

Cordy: The gypsy curse was specific. For Angel to lose his soul, he would have to experience a moment of perfect, pure happiness. And right now, happiness of any kind is in... kind of short supply.

Cordy: They're all going to die—the flowers, plants, trees—without sun. I'm just realizing... I just came to say that I'm on your side. Angelus is the jumbo family-sized bad of bad ideas. He'd be a danger to all of us. You made the right call. Wesley, the others...they don't get it.

She cleverly gets Angel to turn into Angelus making him think she was against it and that it was his idea. The rest of the Cordy/Charisma moments are all in Angel’s head, and it’s almost like Cordy was never gone. The writers still know how to write for her, they just chose not to.

Cordy on the leather straps: What are those? Holiday decorations left over from some S&M bondage party?

Wes: We have to pass through the corridor without ringing any of the bells. Cordy looks at her boobs…
Cordy: Oh, I knew you two would get me in trouble some day.

Cordy: Don't look at me. I'm not a Thomas Guide.

Soulless: Cordy makes a deal with the devil. But who’s the devil?

Cordy: We're Angel's only link to humanity. Angelus will hate us for that. He'll want to make us suffer.

Angelus: What's a better ride than a Mustang?
Cordy: Me.

Cordy: Look in my eyes. Angel knows me. You know me. Better than anyone. So, when you look at me, you know I'm not lying.

Cordy: How does the Beast know exactly what we're gonna do? It's like he's psychic.

Cordy: Angelus could have sent him a message, some kind of demon Morse code.

Angelus walks up to the bars, leers at Cordy: I think I'll start with the twins. I just love a woman with nice ripe thighs. suddenly reaches out to grab Cordy, but misses her by less than an inch
Cordy: Not even close.

Calvary: Lilah arrives, and in what is possibly only their second scene together ever, Cordy kills her. She deserved it.

Cordy: Angel's soul has been misplaced. I bet this sort of thing happens all the time. What do you have as a backup plan to re-ensoul somebody?

Cordy: You're too scared to believe in anything because you're too scared to hope. You won't even open your eyes to the possibility.

Cordy: True, but I thought I should tell you upfront that I don't take orders from guys too scared to step out of their cages.

Cordy: The Powers need a champion, Angel. And obviously they need one pretty bad the way things are going. Who knows, you might even be their only hope, Obi-Wan.

Lilah: He’s gonna kill us.
Cordy: I know. stabs Lilah in the neck with the knife from the Beast's offering; Lilah collapses, falls to the ground Why do you think I let him out? You stupid bitch.

Salvage: Cordy kisses The Beast, kisses Connor and faints twice, yet strangely not in that order…

Cordy: Don't put this on him. I'm the one who let Angelus out. It's my fault.

Cordy: What about you? Letting him bait you into a fight like that. I haven't spent all this time and energy so you can mess it all up with your petty jealousies. You know Angelus is crucial to my plan.
The Beast: My apologies, my master.
Cordy: You need patience. He'll come around...when he sees what I have to offer. And, if he doesn't, you can pull off his head and tear him to bits. Now... give mama some sugar.

Cordy: Oh, gee, that's great. Oh, wait a sec. Wasn't she convicted of murder and sent to a state correctional facility for like a gazillion years?

Cordy: All I know is there's a life growing inside of me, and it's ours. We're connected now. You and me. Forever.

Release: Cordy stays in her room full time and talks to Angelus in a gruff voice. Must be right after she had the morning sickness…

Cordy: Because they wouldn't understand. Our baby is growing so fast, it would scare them. And that fear might make them want to kill it, like they wanted to kill you. But trust me, Connor. It won't be too long. They're all gonna know what's growing inside of me.

Cordy: The best, and the only thing you ever have to worry about is keeping us safe. So, why don't you go back downstairs and see what's going on. I'd feel a lot better if I knew everything that was happening.

Orpheus: Willow and Cordy fight and then Cordy reveals her mystical pregnancy to the gang. Just like the good old days. Just with… badness.

Cordy: So the slayer snagged Angelus? He's in the hotel? Is he locked up tight in the cage?
Connor: Don't worry, Cordy. I'll always protect you. And our family.
Cordy: That’s sweet. Is he guarded?

Cordy: Wow. Are my hormones out of whack, or what? Hello, crazy pregnant lady, out of line! Whoo!

Willow: How’ve you been?
Cordy: Higher power. You?
Willow: Ultimate evil, but I got better.

There's hope for everyone at Evil Anonymous...

Cordy: Hear me, Angelus. Heed my warning. Awaken at once. Return from the darkness. Or just lay there and let that red-headed meddler put your soul back. Whichever!

Cordy: Connor, you can't! She's too powerful. But you can stop it. The reason for all of this. You have to kill Angelus.

Cordy: You know I have fought harder than anyone to save Angel's life, but there comes a time when you have to weigh risk versus reward. And as much as I love Angel...as a friend... killing Angelus now is the only way to guarantee our family's safety.

Cordy: Sorry, Angel. But if this is the speech about how the worst is behind us, you may want to save it for later.

Players: Cordy comes clean with Angel and is then outed by Lorne and a Magic 8 ball.

Cordy: I know it's a bit of a shock. I mean, nobody's more shocked than me. Looks at Connor OK, maybe him.

Wesley: The last time Cordelia was impregnated, she came to term overnight.

Cordy: I know it's hard to understand. None of you have ever had a living being growing inside of you. And this— my sweet baby—we're connected. I feel what it feels. I can't explain it, but I sense its goodness, its love. Turns to walk away, looks down at her belly as the creature inside writhes visibly under her skin—clearly not a human baby; turns back to face the others You'll see. My baby will be here soon, and then you'll all see.

Cordy: What's important is that when I needed help, you were there for me. Now I know I can trust you. Completely. No matter what. See? Everything happens for a reason. Connor, before our baby comes, I might ask you to do some things...for us. And I want you to remember, there's always a reason.

Cordy: I'm his master. Pause. I'm his all-powerful master, and I'm gonna break into a guarded room, steal your soul from a safe—not by ripping it open, but by using the combination—then I'm gonna hunt and kill Lilah right under this very roof. Sure. Evil geniuses live for that playing with fire stuff.
Angel: You don't understand. This thing was in my head. I've heard him, and he's insane enough to pull those kinds of stunts.
Cordy: When you say "insane," you mean, like, diabolical?

Lorne: Has Cordy been a bad girl? When Lorne turns the "Magic 8 Ball" over, the triangle inside reads "Definitely."

Inside Out: Cordy does her mystical glowy trick from season 3 again, except this time that bird from Firefly steps out…

Cordy: Took you long enough to figure it out but nice turn with the Lorne bait. You know, there was a time I would've seen that one coming eons before it ever crossed your tiny little mind.

Cordy: That's it? I get away with bringing the world down around you and two eentsy words tingle your spider sense?

Angel: We don't know if it's really Cordy.
Fred: Or what she's got baking in her oven.
Gunn: Evil and pregnant? I'm guessing it ain't cookies.

Maybe it’s Buffy…

Cordy: What does that mean, really? Being good? Doing the right thing? By who's judgment? Good, evil—they're just words, Connor. Concepts of morality they forced around your neck to yank you wherever they please. You're with me now. You don't have to live by their rules. You remember why?
Connor: 'Cause we're special.
Cordy: That's right. We're special, and our baby is going to be extraordinary

Cordy: Trying to turn you against me with a cheap vision of— Darla.

Cordy: No, it's coming. It's coming. The beginning of a new world.

Shiny Happy People ~ Home: What a pretty mannequin, but you should give up the dynamite, doesn’t go with the shoes, darling…

Go on then, I can see you all circling like Vultures. Offers up You're Welcome.

regarding STB:

i love what keith topping had to say about this episode in 'hollywood vampire'

Quote:
there is no finer sight on television than Cordelia, in full-on uber-bitch mode, calling Gunn 'hair club for men' or Wesley 'head cheese'
the man appreciates cordy/charisma

You're Welcome

Ok, I've finally relented, although not having seen the episode, I've got the script on my screen, and i'm going to go through it and pull out the best bits from Cordy. I honestly thought that more people would be doing this one, but i guess not... Anyway, If I do miss something, please just add it underneath...

So, Cordy's woken up from her coma and had a vision of Angel in pain and some man with tattoos. (Lindsay)

Ok, coming up for Cordy's first line...

Ready? Ok...

Angel and Wesley walk into Cordelia's hospital room and see a woman lying on the bed under a pink blanket. Her face is obscured by a privacy curtain, but they can see she's still and attached to a the hospital machinery. Wesley and Angel hesitate to approach her.

That wasn't it... here it comes...

Angel: Cordelia?

Cordelia :(walks out from the bathroom in a hospital gown) Yeah. (walks around the girl's bed) That chick's in rough shape. (draws the privacy curtain closed) You'd think they'd give miss one-foot-in-the- grave a private room... which brings me to, hey... couldn't you stick me someplace that smells a little less like ammonia-soaked death?

Hehe, it's Snark!Cordy... or, as we know her Cordy!Cordy!

Cordy: I'm a vision of hotliness, and how weird is that? Mystical comas. You know, if you can stand the horror of a higher power hijacking your mind and body so that it can give birth to itself, I really recommend 'em.

Oh... wow... i loved Wesley jsut thinking wow, she's hot... What i want to know is WHY weren't they visiting her, surely theyd know if she was hot or not while she was in her coma...

Cordelia: Maternal instincts aside, I hope you kicked its ass for me.

*

Cordy: Ooh! I love that plan. I hope you brought me some clothes, 'cause...
(looks at her hospital gown, then shakes her head) damn.


Oh wow, she reminds me of old Gunn...

Ooh! Great! Shopping! I love that idea, 'cause, you know, I'm not so ready to go back to the hotel yet.

*

Lorne: Are you huggable? Always...

*

Oh, my God. Gunn? You have hair.

*

Who's Colin Farrell? Well, to the Brits here, he used to be in Ballykissangel...

Eve: Oh, my name is -

Cordy: I didn't ask.


*

Doyle Pissed me off so righteously going out like that, but he knew. He knew what he had to do. Didn't compromise. Used his last breath to make sure you'd keep fighting. I get that now.

*

So, not only did you strike a deal with your worst enemy to give up your son, you let them rape the memories of your friends who trust you?

*

OK, Spike's a hero, and you're C.E.O. of Hell, Incorporated. What freakin' bizarro world did I wake up in? They call it Season 5. Don't ask me, i dont get it either...

*

Angel, there are no people like us.

*

Well, well. I heard you weren't evil anymore, which kind of makes the hair silly. Spike Vamps. Or nice?

*

Spike: She's evil, you gourmless tit.
Cordy: Excuse me? Who bit whom?
Angel: Did you call me a tit?
Cordy: I thought he had a soul?
Spike: I thought she didn't.
Cordy: I do.
Spike: So do I.
Cordy: Clearly, mine's better.


This is so funny! Why do ME always insist on bringing Spike in as a replacement to Cordy? They are great together...

*

Spike: Yeah. Said Cordelia was taken over by some big bad. Came to destroy you all.
Cordy: His vision's a rerun.


*

(grabs Eve by the ear) Let's go, Lilah junior. YAY!!! See, they've noticed that everything is just not as good as what they had... and still they dont bring Lilah back... It's madness!!!

*

Get out of that chair and I will feed you those Manolo Blahniks. Which are stunning by the way. That is pure Cordy... wow...

*

Harmony: I don't mind torturing her for the team. Oh, wow, i love Harmony. We need the Cordy and Harmony and Spike show I think... that's a spin off if ever i saw one... but, never happen... oh well...

*

Yeah, save it, Angel. You can order me around all you want, but I know my rights. (unsheathes the sword) And I wanna see a lawyer.

Oh, wow, there's something about Cordy with a sword...

*

Lorne: Why don't they ever need the urine of an unclean? I've got plenty of unclean urine. (Gunn pulls out a dagger; Lorne lets out a nervous chuckle) Look. Uh... I think I'm making some right now.

Oh hilarious! Nothing to do with Cordy, but it has to be added for future generations of Charisma's fans to laugh at...

*

Lorne: Well, I'm thinking seabreeze, compadres. I gave up a lot of blood for this gig.
Harmony: And I didn't get any. I kept begging Eve to run, but...


Lorne can be in the spin off too...

*

Boy, I really do fall for the dumb ones. You know how you're always trying to save, oh, every single person in the world? Did it ever occur to you you were one of them?

*

I can't stay. This isn't me anymore. You can say good-bye to the gang for me, explain everything once you understand.

*

Then she kiss Angel "What the hell."

*

Oh... and you're welcome.

*

Angel: Hello. Yes, I know. She's... but that's impossible. She's standing right— (turns to look for Cordelia, but she's not there; he becomes visibly upset) I'm sorry. Yeah. (choking up) When did she die? Did she, um... she never did wake up? I see. (hangs up, looks out to where Cordelia was standing moments earlier) Thank you.

Yes, Cordy. Thank you.

Well guys we made it... we got through all 54 of Cordy's Buffy episodes and all 86 Angel ones...

140 episodes, and it still wasn't enough!!!

So... what's gonna happen to this thread now?
