Detective Kate Lockley: He forgot how to be anything but a cop a long time ago. And maybe - maybe that's-that's why I became a cop, too. After Mom died, you stopped, you know. It was like you couldn't stand the sight of me. Her face, her eyes looking up at you. But big girls don't cry, right? You said, gone's gone and there's no use wallowing. Worms and dirt and nothing, forever. Not one word about a better place. You couldn't even tell a scared little girl a beautiful lie. God, I wanted to drink with you. I wanted you to laugh once with me, the way you laugh with Jimmy here, or Frank.
Trevor Lockley: [muttering to himself] What the hell they do to her in that class?
Detective Kate Lockley: My best friend, Joanne, her mom was soft and she smelled like macaroni and cheese and she would - she would pick me up on her lap and she'd rock me.

Little Tony Papazian: You, uh, you've been running after me for a long time, haven't you, sweetheart? If I'da known how bad you wanted me, I might have let you catch me a little sooner.

Lee Mercer: Mr. Papazian is a very important client at Wolfram & Hart. Any further violations of his rights and there *will* be serious repercussions.
Detective Kate Lockley: And what exactly the hell does that mean?

Little Tony Papazian: Everybody should have a lawyer like this one.

Detective Kate Lockley: [Interrogating Spivey] Where is Little Tony?

Angel: [sighs] Been there, done that.

Kate Lockley: What do you do?
Angel: Do?
Kate Lockley: For a living.
Angel: I uh, well, basically I'm, uh, I help... I'm a veterinarian.

Kate Lockley: Way to come off like a drunken slut. Slut's better than a hypocrite, though, right? Moving up.
Angel: You're kinda hard on yourself.
Kate Lockley: Well, I'm a self-flagellating-hypocrite-slut.

Angel: We're on the same side.
Kate Lockley: You're telling me you're an investigator?
Angel: More or less.
Kate Lockley: Where's your license?
Angel: That's the "less" part.

Bartender: Kate. The usual?

"Angel: Epiphany (#2.16)" (2001)
Angel: Well, I guess I kinda worked it out. If there's no great glorious end to all this, if nothing we do matters... , then all that matters is what we do. 'Cause that's all there is. What we do. Now. Today. I fought for so long, for redemption, for a reward, and finally just to beat the other guy, but I never got it.
Kate Lockley: And now you do?
Angel: Not all of it. All I wanna do is help. I wanna help because, I don't think people should suffer as they do. Because, if there's no bigger meaning, then the smallest act of kindness is the greatest thing in the world.
Kate Lockley: Yikes. It sounds like you've had an epiphany.
Angel: I keep saying that, but nobody's listening.

Kate Lockley: I feel like such an idiot.
Angel: A lot of that that going around.

Kate Lockley: I think maybe we're not alone in this.
Angel: Why?
Kate Lockley: Because I never invited you in.

Angel: Kate! Kate! Kate, open the door! Kate! Kate.
[Angel rushes Kate to a shower]
Kate Lockley: [after Angel saves her] Thanks. Now get out.

"Angel: The Shroud of Rahmon (#2.8)" (2000)
Detective Kate Lockley: Where's Angel?
Wesley Wyndam-Pryce: Angel? Right. That's why I'm here, to warn Angel about... something... important! Your hair!
Detective Kate Lockley: You're here to warn Angel about my hair?
Wesley Wyndam-Pryce: It's blonde!

Angel: Listen, Kate, there are forces at work here that you know nothing about.
Detective Kate Lockley: Gathering storm is it?
Angel: Which you don't wanna get caught in.
Detective Kate Lockley: You afraid I'll get hurt?
Angel: No. I'm afraid you'd get killed. I'm just telling you this so you won't.
Detective Kate Lockley: Me dead. I guess I'd kind of be like you then, wouldn't I? You think I'm gonna stand by while you and your playmate finish the game?
Angel: Let's try this one more time. You get stuck between me and Darla, it'll be the last thing you ever do.
Detective Kate Lockley: Let go of me.

"Angel: Dear Boy (#2.5)" (2000)
Detective Kate Lockley: Oh, looky here.
Detective Kate Lockley: "Disturbing the peace, resisting arrest, G.T.A., assault." You've lead a rich full life, haven't you, Charles?
Charles Gunn: I get around.
Cordelia Chase: I know this guy, he helps people. I bet this stuff you're dredging up happened a long time ago, didn't it.
Detective Kate Lockley: Some of it was when he was a minor.
Cordelia Chase: Uh-huh.
Detective Kate Lockley: And some of it was in the last two weeks.
Cordelia Chase: Oh.
Detective Kate Lockley: Word to the wise, Charles, hanging out with these two and their creature-of-the-night boss won't be good for the resume.
Charles Gunn: I can see you're lookin' out for me, detective.
Cordelia Chase: Okay, okay, let's not get off track here. We wanna find Angel as much as you do.
Detective Kate Lockley: No, you don't. You wannna protect him even though he's lost it. He stalked that woman because he thought she was this Darla from his past. She begged him to stay out and he knocked down the door and killed her husband. I've read about him, too. I know what he is and I know he hasn't changed.
Charles Gunn: No he hasn't, he's still a vampire.
Cordelia Chase: Gunn! Not helping.
Charles Gunn: So, how'd he get in the house? She invite him in?
Detective Kate Lockley: 'Course she didn't in...

Wesley Wyndam-Pryce: You can't blame Angel for- He's trying to do what's right!
Detective Kate Lockley: That's right, he's good, I keep forgetting. I'm sorry, and why did he kidnap that woman, again?

"Angel: Somnambulist (#1.11)" (2000)
Detective Kate Lockley: Our suspect will be a white male. To the observer, he will not seem a monster. His victims put up little or no struggle, so it's likely he's charming, attractive, but at his core, he's a loner. Possibly a dual personality, who, once the crime has been committed, retains no memory of the act. He will not view his victims as subhuman, rather it's himself he sees as something other than human, more than human, a superior species. Stalking his prey, getting to know them. It's unlikely he'll be married, though he may have recently come off a long-term relationship that ended badly. We look for a precipitating event in cases such as this, and a painful breakup is always at the top of our list. Prior to failing, this relationship may have marked an inactive period in our suspect's life. He would have regarded it as a lifeline, his salvation, but once ended, resulted in his recidivism. What is not in question is his experience. He's been doing this for a very long time, and he will do it again.

Detective Kate Lockley: What are you going to do?
Penn: [sarcastically] Well, first I thought I'd stop everything and tell you my plan.

"Angel: Reprise (#2.15)" (2001)
Internal Affairs Woman: It is very important when we suffer a loss of this nature, to take the proper time to grieve. So we understand. We want you to know, we're not judging you.
Detective Kate Lockley: No, you're just firing me.

Detective Kate Lockley: Still, it's funny how these people were threatened by an intruder at their offices. The intruder I picked up, and released on the street three hours before the complainants were found massacred.
Angel: You know who's responsible for that.
Detective Kate Lockley: Yeah. But I can't figure out why Forensics is telling me now, how it looks like the suspect or suspects didn't break in. They had to break out. The victims were locked in that wine cellar with their attackers. And I think I am done helping you now.

"Angel: The Thin Dead Line (#2.14)" (2001)
Detective Kate Lockley: Guess you never caught up with your vampire friends in time.
Angel: I did track them down later and set them on fire.
Detective Kate Lockley: Sounds like you enjoyed it. But then again, the whole murder and mayhem thing's always been right up your alley.
Angel: If that's how you feel, I guess probably this isn't the best time to tell you, I just killed a cop.
Detective Kate Lockley: I wouldn't make a joke about that in this building, no matter how immortal you think you are.
Angel: Of course, I mean, this is the kind of cop that keeps talking even after he's been decapitated. I bet they don't teach you that in the Academy. Wanna tell me who that badge belonged to?

Angel: I thought you might want to know. I took care of our cop problem.
Detective Kate Lockley: Crime reports from that precinct. Up until three months ago, there was a murder every two weeks, a rape every two days, a robbery every hour and a half. That's what we just gave back to the people in that community.
Angel: I can live with that.
Detective Kate Lockley: You learn to live with a lot of things, don't you? This job is making me crazy.
Angel: I know the feeling.

"Angel: To Shanshu in L.A. (#1.22)" (2000)
Detective Kate Lockley: Never a dull moment when you're around, is there?
Angel: I have to go.
Detective Kate Lockley: Who in the hell do you think you are? You're a major witness at a major crime scene; you're not going anywhere.
Angel: You want to try and stop me, Kate?
Detective Kate Lockley: I'm glad we are not playing friends anymore. I am real sick and tired of your attitude. There's a little thing called the law...
Angel: This isn't about the law, this is about a little thing called life. Now I'm sorry about your father. But I didn't kill your father. And I'm sick and tired of you blaming me for everything you can't handle! You want to be enemies? Try me.

"Angel: Rm w/a Vu (#1.5)" (1999)
Detective Kate Lockley: Well, see, the thing about detectives is they have résumés and business licenses and last names. Pop stars and Popes, those are the one-name guys.
Angel: You got me. I'm a Pope.

"Angel: The Prodigal (#1.15)" (2000)
Trevor Lockley: [about Angel] You two still seeing each other?
Detective Kate Lockley: We were never seeing each other, Dad.
Trevor Lockley: What's wrong with him?
Detective Kate Lockley: Nothing!
Trevor Lockley: Must be something wrong with him. He married?
Detective Kate Lockley: No.
Trevor Lockley: West Hollywood?
Detective Kate Lockley: Daddy, no! Angel's just... not my type. Or I'm not his type. There is definitely a type involved and it's the wrong one.

"Angel: I Fall to Pieces (#1.4)" (1999)
Detective Kate Lockley: This guy could go to jail tomorrow, Angel, and still kill her in her dreams every night. I mean, I've put a few of these creeps away and the hardest thing is knowing that he's still winning. She's still afraid. He took this girl's power away and nobody can get it back for her but her.

"Angel: Sanctuary (#1.19)" (2000)
Kendrick: This girl supposedly has some kinda supernatural powers.
Kate Lockley: Really?
Kendrick: Come on, Kate. Everybody knows you've gone all Scully. Any time one of these weird cases crosses anyone's desk, you're always there. What's goin' on with you?
Kate Lockley: Scully is the skeptic.
Kendrick: Huh?
Kate Lockley: Mulder's the believer. Scully's the skeptic.
Kendrick: Scully's the chick, right?
Kate Lockley: Yes. But she's not the one that wants to believe.
Kendrick: And you wanna believe?
Kate Lockley: Oh, I already believe. That's the problem.
