What’s great?

Hamilton!!!! “Move like this, I wouldn’t mind having Blue Thunder in our corner.” “Which is interesting for a secret society.” “Your manservent has become tangled in my bodily fluids again!” “But I keep thinking that once this world was theirs, and now it’s not.” “Nobody ever mentions the fact that you’re a vampire with big brass testes. It’s going to be a circus.” “Yeah, I think I’d be more comfortable if you did.” “What if I told you it doesn’t help?” “Mistress who?” “It’s nice to know you’re one of the few things he didn’t get his mitts on.” “Oh. Can I deny you three times?” “Anyway? About Angel’s secret plan?” “Come master! Come to Smeagol!” (may have been a commercial) “Well. Long as it’s not you.” “No problemo, boss.” “It’s not an act. I’m really this nervous.” “I am damn loyal, dumbass.” “It’s already on the desk.” “Doyle. Cordelia. Fred. They’re all dead. Now you follow.” “And lucky for you I’m on a strict diet.” “I mean, really. I crap better magic than this.” “Care about that, Dress-For-Less?” “I’ve heard you sing. You’re not part of the solution, Lindsay.” “A flunky? Angel kills me!” “Goodnight, folks.” “Yes. Thank you, yes.” “It won’t be much longer. Then you’ll be where I am. We’ll be together.” “Can you pick out the one word there you probably shouldn’t have said?” “Time to go.” “I feel grief for him. I can’t seem to control it. I wish to do more violence.”
