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

LOVE. Absolute. LOVE! Where'd most of the quotes from Charisma, David and Greenwalt come from? Commentaries? Interviews?

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.
