      • (Akani has told William about Swenton relapsing.)
        William: Akani, all I've got is your word. Your word! If I can't trust you, then I can't work with you.
        Akani: I know!
        William: (yelling) No, you don't know! Otherwise you would've told me about Swenton the moment you found out about it.

      • (William, Darnell and Joey stage an intervention with Lisa.)
        Lisa: Who the hell are you?
        William: My name is William Banks, I'm here because I think I can help you.
        Lisa: Oh my God! Are you an agent?
        William: I've been called a lot of things, but, uh, never that.

      • William: (talking to God) It's not just here that we need to believe… not just in the City of Angels. Because everyone's tested everywhere. How much pressure can we handle before we crack? What will it take to… piece us back together? Because, whether you've sent us angels or not, the only real hope we have is each other. … We get lost, or afraid… and you know what it's like for the lost and the frightened. They lose faith in you, in themselves, in each other. So maybe you've sent us those angels or maybe… maybe you just need us to believe in them. But for me, I need you. This time my faith, my belief – even in the angels you might have sent my way – they're not enough. They're not enough, not this time. Please, please help me. Don't let this happen again.

      • William: (speaking to God) L.A., City of Angels… fallen or otherwise. You know more people believe in angels than in evolution? The thing about those angels is, do you really send them down here to watch over us, or is our believing in them enough? You know, faith– faith is a funny thing. A fuel for some… a poison to others. Your man Dr. King said, "Faith is taking the first step, even when you can't see the whole staircase." I'm not sure we ever really… see the staircase. The faith here in L.A. is blind. It's the only town where you can actually die from encouragement. … Los Angeles, City of Angels. Are they a leap of faith, those angels? Or did you really send some down to watch over us?
