C/A Quote Goodness  
I love my ship. I'm not the only one either. So here are just a sampling of C/A quotes, complied by one of the biggest C/A whores on LJ: nikkiwawa79

-"I did bring her to 'Angel,' because I felt she so kind of contrasted with him. And it would be fun to see them together." ~ David Greenwalt on Cordelia

-"It would be like getting together with your first wife, it would be a nightmare." ~ David Greenwalt on Buffy and Angel

-"If you actually saw these two characters get back together, it would be so different . . . it probably wouldn't even work." ~ David Boreanaz on Buffy and Angel

-"He was, like, 'People move on. You have to move forward all the time' " ~ David Greenwalt talking about Joss? opinion on Cordelia and Angel

"I don't care what people think about it because I know we're doing the right thing," ~ David Greenwalt on C/Aness

-Is Angel going to hook up with Cordy?
"Well, I'm all for it. I don't know what the writers have planned in that regard, but I'm a fan of Charisma's work and I'd love for our characters to be romantically involved. Cordy is really what Angel needs, I believe." ~ David Boreanaz

-"When Joss was first pitching the Angel/Cordelia story, I said, 'No, we can't do that to Buffy!' But then I realised - Cordelia has become a superhero. She's the only person in the show who is Angel's equal. It's not that first-love, Buffy-and-Angel thing. It's a second marriage, it's a more mature thing." ~ David Greenwalt

-"Angel and Cordelia have a mature love between two old souls" ~ Jane Espenson

-"But this is the, the chemistry that's going on between us. Charisma and Angel's character this year is a lot different that what was going on between Angel and Buffy. Their character's a lot more sad - they're deeper angst. Buffy and Angel was this - you know - crush thing going on but this one is a little bit deeper and it's growing and who knows where it's going to take us" ~ David Boreanaz

-"All Cordy's been doing is drooling on Angel's shoulder" ~ David Greenwalt

-"The Cordelia and Angel relationship just appeared out of the scripts" ~ David Greenwalt

-"It's kind of a continuation of last year. Last year Angel found himself with a son - and found himself with a really crappy son. He also found himself falling in love." [With Cordy, of course] ~ Joss Whedon on Season 4, Fall issue of Cinescape

-"Angel. Cordy. Porn music. That's all I'm saying, and I've said too much. Keep watching. You'll love it." ~ Steve DeKnight

-"Angel and Buffy have both moved on. Angel realizes this season that he had moved on from Buffy *before* she died. It's only natural. It was a first love, and that's where it will remain." ~ David Greenwalt, November 13 2001

-"Because with Angel being dark and brooding...we need a big, bright smile." ~ David Greenwalt on Cordelia and Angel

-"I've had experiences or conversations with David Greenwalt where I've said, 'Nobody gets my humour', and then he wrote it in. I didn't even remember that I said that. Then I told him how endearing it was for Angel to say, 'I thought it was funny.' It was a sweet thing between the two characters." ~ Charisma Carpenter on a C/Aness in TSILA

- "Well, Joss Whedon wrote and directed an episode in which Angel and Cordelia sort of fall into each other's arms...I can tell you that we had fun doing those scenes. Charisma and I really had fun during those love scenes..." ~ David Boreanaz on Waiting in the Wings

- How are fans reacting to the relationship between Cordelia and Angel? We've read on message boards that many fans feel like you're being unfaithful to Buffy.
"[That relationship] had a sad ending to it. There was a very deep love there and there was really no end to [that love]. But you have to move on. The relationship with Cordelia is a lot different than the relationship with Buffy was. So it's two different situations. You just let [fans] voice their opinion and it's nice. But when people say they wish [Buffy and Angel] were still together, I tell them if that were the case there wouldn't be any growth for both characters." ~ David Boreanaz YM, Feb. 2003

- "I felt more uncomfortable with Connor, because we haven't had seven years to bond, so I don't know him. And I'm pregnant, so I'm more abundant than usual--there's more to maneuver around. With David, I don't know, it's kind of ironic. It was very comfortable. I was at ease. I think we have great chemistry--we sync up really well. We're there." ~ Charisma Carpenter, Feb. 2003

-"Is it me, or is something dirty happening out of frame? - There is a subtext going on, and I suspect it's less than pure" ~Season 3 dvd commentary by Joss Whedon on episode 3x13, Waiting in the Wings

-"This was, you know, this was an intense day. You know, because there was a lot with the smoochies and with the undressing, and you know, David really went out of his way to make Charisma as comfortable as possible because this isn't something she'd actually done a lot of on my shows. And the two of them were, you know, they handled the whole thing very delicately. We had this beautiful little four walled set, and we kept people out of it and let them do their thing. And they were, well kinda electrifying. " ~ Joss Whedon, Season 3 DVD commentary on Waiting In The Wings

-"Where I really broke into the show, where I really began to understand what it was going to be about, was the scene where they're possessed by the sprit of the old lovers and cannot help themselves, but must get all smoochie. And partially because I thought it was wicked sexy, but also because it was a chance for them to express emotions that they were not in a position to tell each other about yet. So that sequence, which was cut up into many sequences, really represents the heart of the show. It was the thing around which I knew I could build the story." ~ Joss Whedon, Season 3 DVD commentary on Waiting In The Wings

-"The two of them, you know, played both the heat in this and the comedy in the later scenes in here extraordinarily." ~ Joss Whedon, Season 3 DVD commentary on Waiting In The Wings

-"Yes, there was steamy hot sex in the scene before, but clearly not enough for me, so I had to bring them back into it." ~ Joss Whedon, Season 3 DVD commentary on Waiting In The Wings

-"Is it me, or is something dirty happening out of frame, I dunno. You know, first I had that girl floating, during that song in the musical, then I have this. I think, I think there's a subtext going on that's in my work. I haven't figured out what it is, but I suspect it's less than pure." ~ Joss Whedon, Season 3 DVD commentary on Waiting In The Wings

-"I believe this scene, apart from being sexual, is very sexy. I love the two of them in it." ~ Joss Whedon, Season 3 DVD commentary on Waiting In The Wings

-"A lot of people were like well 'How come Angel went crazy with the visions?' and I had to tell them. It's not because he had the visions, it's because he didn't have Cordelia. She's the thing that brings him closer to human.'" ~Mere Smith, Season 3 DVD commentary on Birthday

DUDES!! Angel went down on Cordelia!! It's canon! *squees ad infinitum*

they were, well kinda electrifying.

The awesome thing? He could be talking about C/A or CC/DB. Either way, it works for me. :D:D

Kelly: C/A Steady to Hellxlivvielockex on May 2nd, 2009 01:26 am (UTC)
I think he is totally talking about CC/DB. Just look at them on screen. They totally make the tubes in my tv melt!

And where is that pillow slipped icon of Debs. That is what this post needs. LOL

Probably one of the best ships EVER, I think. I hate the 'easy' pairings; I want chemistry, I want drama, I want humour and sarcasm, please!

...I want them to be back.
Kelly: Buffy: Faith's Minexlivvielockex on June 9th, 2009 03:50 pm (UTC)
I am totally there with you. I want the chemistry, the hawtness, the snark. God, I want the snark so bad. I want them being so close, they can tell each other anything.

I want them back too. :(
leobrat: Foulweather Friendsleobrat on May 2nd, 2009 06:42 am (UTC)
Joss seemed to support them so much. Why did he have to give them such a raw deal in the end?
klutzy_girlklutzy_girl on May 2nd, 2009 07:24 am (UTC)
I heard Joss hated Charisma or something like that.

Eww, Buffy/Angel. Let it go, shippers.

Of course, I'm still bitter that Cordelia was only mentioned once after "You're Welcome", an episode I still can't watch to this day.
Kelly: Cordy: Fandom Headachexlivvielockex on June 9th, 2009 03:55 pm (UTC)
I think probably you and every other Cordelia fan out there. You're Welcome is a good episode but it would have been nice if the gang grieved just a bit. Just a tiny bit.

Oh I've always loved Angel & Cordelia so much. They were perfect for eachother and the little romance that they shared on screen was hot! WitW is one of my favorite episodes, I just love it <3
Kelly: C/A Convergencexlivvielockex on June 9th, 2009 03:56 pm (UTC)
You and me both. In my fantasy perfect world, they professed their love after the ballet, got together, raised Connor, and lived happily ever after.

freakin' awesome, thankes for the shareage....

I love that quote from them. And I think it was perfect for the show. That one bright spot in the gritty city. :)

nikkiwawa79 = awesome
Ohmigosh, I've never heard/read most of these! So much love! It makes me sad that I'm re-watching season four and there's mostly badness to come. I'm totally going to have to go cheer myself up with some fanfiction.
Kelly: C/A Stop Therexlivvielockex on June 9th, 2009 03:58 pm (UTC)
Re: nikkiwawa79 = awesome
I have to do that too. Thank god for fanfic. When I do my rewatches, I usually skip s4 and s5. s4 just breaks my heart so much.

♥ ♥ ♥


I never tire of those lovelies. Cangel PAWNS Bangel, even the writers thought so.

And Joss comment on his work's "subtext" always cracks me up because it's SO true, LOL.
Kelly: B/A: Soulmatesxlivvielockex on June 9th, 2009 03:59 pm (UTC)
It always makes me happy to see things supporting the ship. Actors, writers, whoever. I don't even care if it's some quote from Bob down the street. The more C/A love, the better the world. :)

Sunny: Angel & Cordysunny_serenity on May 4th, 2009 07:49 pm (UTC)
LOVE. Absolute. LOVE! Where'd most of the quotes from Charisma, David and Greenwalt come from? Commentaries? Interviews?
Kelly: C/A Animated lovexlivvielockex on June 9th, 2009 04:01 pm (UTC)
I think a lot of them came from interviews and then commentaries on the DVD. I don't know if Nikki has the sources but I know a lot of the Joss stuff is from commentaries so I would assume that is where the Greenwalt stuff came from. I haven't done a rewatch with commentary in so so so so long. The David and Charisma stuff, that is 99.99% sure from interviews.

Thank you but I can't take credit. Nikki put the list together, I just reposted it. :)

Lol, I just saw your link to this post in your user info, and I thought it'd be show quotes, but these are awesome too! :D. I love David Greenwalt so much, and am forever grateful to him for Cangel (and Josef on "Moonlight" but that's another subject). I like quotes like these that show many people working on the show, DB included (despite some other contradictory quotes), did support and like Cangel.

Mere Smith's quote here might be my fave, though Birthday is also my favorite epp! :) But it does show what Angel and Cordy mean to one another so beautifully...
