^That Angel/Holland speech right there pretty much sums up the philosophical concept of Angel to me. Great scene, btw. Angel's speech later on to Kate in 'Epiphany' is also a good one which reinforces the show's premise (If nothing we do matters, then all that matters is what we do).
Yep. It's a direct line from there to "Not Fade Away." Just because there's no chance of winning doesn't mean you don't fight. You fight because it's the right thing to do.
