  • The World According to Cordy...

    Cordelia Chase

    Ok this is a owed to everything Cordelia...

    She is my fave character from BTVS and Ats.

    I just love her, many people understand why...other..have no clue

    But shes just fab...Charisma just brought her to life fantastically. She was born to have that role, im glad it went to her and not Sarah Michelle Gellar.

    Ok as for Cordelia..i thought Joss did an amazing job in writing for her. she was just pure class in the early seasons of Buffy. And then i got to admit i loved how she grew and developed over her time in Angel. She started off as a spoilt stuck up, rich self obsessed cheerleader rom queen...and turned into a hero, a champion. Ok sure she had a rocky road...but hey who in Angel/Buffy didnt. lol

    I love dher witty comments, her fab one liners, and her costumes were to die for.

    Her character was just a class act and one the Angel verse needed.

    Ok im gonna tink about this then get back to you with my top 5 cordelia let me know your too...

    Cordelia was pretty much the reason I started watching either show. I caught a rerun of Angel late at night on TV (the ep was The Ring) and I loved how sarcastic she was. I started watching every week and here, five years later, she's my favourite out of all the characters - the one who, I think, had the most character growth on either show, S4 not withstanding.

    Hmmm, my top favourite Cordelia moments? (Being limited to five is terrible! LOL)

    5. In, Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered where Cordelia finally stands up to Harmony and the Cordettes and tells them what she thinks.

    Harmony? You're a sheep. All you ever do is what everyone else does just so you can say you did it first. And here I am, scrambling for your approval, when I'm *way* cooler than you are 'cause I'm *not* a sheep. I do what I wanna do, and I wear what I wanna wear. And you know what? I'll date whoever the hell I wanna date. No matter how lame he is.

    4. Hee, her entire conversation with the vampire Lyle in Homecoming.

    CORDELIA: I hear you, you redneck moron. You got a dress that goes with that hat?
    Lyle: I'm gonna...
    CORDELIA: Rip out my innards, play with my eyeballs, boil my brain and eat it for brunch? Listen up, needle-brain. Buffy and I have taken out four of your cronies, not to mention your girlfriend.
    Lyle: WIFE!
    CORDELIA: Whatever. The point is, I haven't even broken a sweat. See, in the end, Buffy's just the runner-up. *I'm* the Queen. You get me mad, what do you think I'm gonna do to you?

    3. Much of the conversation between Cordelia and Billy in that episode. Where Cordelia tells Billy he's an asswipe and, instead of bitching and moaning like he thinks she will, she's here to send him back. And this little gem:

    BILLY: So, you can dress like a man, talk like a man? (Smiles) Does that make you feel superior?
    CORDELIA: Actually, I'm feeling superior because I have an arrow pointed at your jugular. And the irony of using a phallic shaped weapon? Not lost on me.

    2. The next moment was so bittersweet. Cordy was so adamant that Angel had been seduced, that he'd given up everything he'd worked for...and there was a glimmer of Cordy-of-Old in there when she lost her tangent getting caught up in all the things he'd been seduced by.

    CORDELIA: 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.
    ANGEL: Cordy...there are reasons I agreed to take over Wolfram & Hart, reasons you don't understand.
    CORDELIA: I understand just fine. They seduced you with all their fancy facilities, manpower. They threw a whole bunch of money at you, plied you with all these expensive toys and penthouses with spectacular views, and- (looks out his window, admiring the view) really spectacular. (to Angel) What was I saying?

    1. There were so many moments I could have chosen for this one. Shippy ones popped out, but the following exchange with Dennis' Mom in Rm W/a Vu was probably one of my all time favourite Cordelia moments ever:

    CORDELIA: I'm not a sniveling whiny little Cry-Buffy. I'm the nastiest girl in Sunnydale history. I take crap from no one.
    MAUDE: You're going to make yourself a noose and put it around?
    CORDELIA: Back off! Polygrip. You think *you're* bad? All mean and haunty? Picking on poor pathetic Cordy? Well, get ready to haul your wrinkly translucent ass out of this place, because lady, the bitch is back.

    No doubt I'll be back later saying, "Oh, that should have been in my top 5 too!" *G*

    CORDELIA: It's gonna be a long while until you work your way out but I know you well enough to know you *will* and I'll be with you until you do. -- Judgement

        Extreme Cordy love from me! I could probably put up a list of my 100 favorite Cordy Lines, but here's a few that would be on it:

        1. From Welcome to the Hellmouth:

        CORDELIA: You wanna fit in here, the first rule is: know your losers. Once you can identify them all by sight (glances after Willow) they're a lot easier to avoid.

        2. When She Was Bad

        CORDELIA: Buffy. You're really campaigning for bitch-of- the-year, aren't you?

        BUFFY: As defending champion, you nervous?

        CORDELIA: I can hold my own. You know, we've never really been close, which is nice, 'cause I don't really like you that much, but... you have on occasion saved the world and stuff, so I'm gonna... do you a favor.

        BUFFY: And this great favor is...

        CORDELIA: I'm gonna give you some advice. Get over it.

        BUFFY: Excuse me?

        CORDELIA: Whatever is causing the Joan Collins 'tude, deal with it. Embrace the pain, spank your inner moppet, whatever, but get over it. 'Cause pretty soon you're not even gonna have the loser friends you've got now.

        BUFFY: I think it's about time you start minding your own business.

        CORDELIA: It's long past.

        3. From Billy:

        LILAH: Billy's touch works differently on different men. Some lose their mind in an instant. Others - can take hours. - Gee, I sure hope Angel isn't starting to feel testy.

        CORDELIA: You better hope it.

        LILAH: I know. I've seen his dark side.

        CORDELIA: You really haven't. - I have to find Billy.

        LILAH: And I'm gonna help you why?

        CORDELIA: You know that guy that you hired to hack into my visions? What he did to me? What it felt like? I was cut, my face disfigured, and burning with pain every second not knowing if it was gonna end or just get worse till I died.

        LILAH: So you think I owe you...

        CORDELIA: It's not the pain. It's the helplessness. The certainty that there is nothing you can do to stop it, that your life can be thrown away in an instant by someone else. He doesn't care. He'll beat you down until you stay down because he doesn't even *think* of you as alive. - No woman should ever have to go through that, and no woman strong enough to wear the mantel of 'vicious bitch' would ever put up with it. *Where* is Billy going?

        4. From Birthday:

        Skip: The fact remains that humans are not strong enough to harbor the visions! Period. Even the Powers That Be can't change that."

        Cordy steps closer: "Then find a loop hole, Skip. I know my purpose in this world and it includes the visions. And if the Powers That Be aren't complete dumb-asses, they know it, too."

        Skip: "There maybe a - tiny - loophole."

        Cordy: "I'll take it."

        Skip: "You may wanna think about that. The only way *you* get to keep the visions is by becoming - part demon. (Cordy looks down) The process isn't easy. It'll make your vision pain feel like a stroll through candyland. And even after the pain subsides the effects of the transition will be numerous and unpredictable. You may never be able to lead a human life again."

        Cordy looks over at Angel (who appears to be frozen in time), then back at Skip.

        Cordy: "So - demonize me already."

        5. From You're Welcome (so many from here!)

        CORDELIA: 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.

        CORDELIA: Angel, there are no people like us.

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

        ANGEL: That's gonna be never. I need you here.

        CORDELIA: (close to tears) Don't make it hard, Angel. I'm just on a different road... and this is my off-ramp. The Powers That Be owed me one, and I didn't waste it. I got my guy back on track.

        ANGEL: Cordy, there's just-

        CORDELIA: We take what we can get, champ, and we do our best with it. I'll be seeing you.

        (she smiles through her tears, turns to walk out of the office. stops, turns around, walks quickly up to Angel)

        CORDELIA: Oh, what the hell. One for the road?

        (she kisses Angel, but moments later, the telephone rings)

        ANGEL: You know, um... I don't...I don't need to get that.

        CORDELIA: That, you have to get.
