FAITH: Hey there angsty eyes…
ANGEL: Faith. How are you?
FAITH: Five by five. Something’s wrong with you though. What is it?
FAITH: I knew it. Felt it a couple weeks ago. It was like getting stuffed with a hot poker… I’m sorry Angel..
ANGEL: (UNCOMFORTABLE) I thought you should know.
FAITH: I’m glad… if it weren’t for you I wouldn’t know much of anything. Other than women.. women and more women. Don’t get me wrong, nothing wrong with women… but… (SERIOUSLY) Sometimes I just babble you know, when I don’t know what to say. You’re really the only person who gave me another chance.
ANGEL: We all deserve them.
FAITH: How did..
ANGEL: She jumped, there was a rift. It’s kind of complicated… Willow explained but I’m not sure I.. heard it all.
FAITH: Is there anything I can do?
ANGEL: I think you should stay here. For now.. I.
FAITH: You’ve gotta go. I get that. (PAUSE) Angel?
FAITH: Just… just don’t do something stupid.
ANGEL: She was…
FAITH: She loved you…
ANGEL: I should have been there… I should have done something…
FAITH: Someone once told me that I couldn’t have saved my Watcher. No matter how many times I replayed it in my mind. Doesn’t stop me from trying…
ANGEL: I just… I thought I’d… I should… She shouldn’t’ve died alone..
FAITH: We all die alone...
