From Not Fade Away, the last episode of Angel:
Gunn spends his day helping Anne, who still maintains a homeless shelter in Gunn’s old neighborhood. He asks her what she would do if she found out that everything she did – everything she fought for – was for nothing, and she tells him she would continue to unload the supplies for the shelter. Gunn smiles; that was the answer he had been looking for.
“Gunn: What if I told you it doesn’t help? What would you do if you found out that none of it matters? That it’s all controlled by forces more powerful and uncaring than we can conceive and they will never let it get better down here? What would you do?
Anne Steele: I’d get this truck packed before the new stuff gets here. Wanna give me a hand?”
