He's an angel... Not a saint.


  • I'm not that kind of angel.
  • Battle!
    • As he prepares to confront a bull in a field.
  • No injuries, 6360 battles.
  • Remember Sparky, no matter what they say, you can never have too much sugar.
  • The miles will fly and your children won't cry, if you play car bingo.
  • Whatever they say, you can never have too much of earth.

  • It's cookies! He smells like cookies — and the smell gets stronger when he's in heat.


Huey Driscoll: Can I just pull on your wings to see how they're attached?
Michael: Why don't you pull on your pecker to see how it's attached?
Pansy Milbank: Hey. Language.
Frank Quinlan: An angel that says "pecker."
Pansy Milbank: Language.

Michael: You know, I invented marriage
Pansy Milbank: Oh really?
Michael: Yep. All these people were milling around, trying to get together, everything was in chaos so I told 'em, "Have a ceremony".

Michael: Remember what John and Paul said.
Frank Quinlan: The apostles?
Michael: No, The Beatles. "All you need is love."

Frank Quinlan: Bring him back.
Michael: That's not my area.
Frank Quinlan: Would someone please tell me what his area is? Don't give me that "that's not my area" stuff. BRING HIM BACK.
