  • Quotes (27)

    • Gunn: (after walking in on Wes and Fred) He was kissing you! Don't lie to me. It's the one thing you're not good at. Fred: It just happened. Gunn: Because you let it. I've never felt so much for anyone. I would do anything for you, but it's not enough, is it? Fred: Charles, I'm... Gunn: I can't do this anymore, Fred. I'm tired of you looking everywhere but at me.

    • Angelus: Lilah, I had such high hopes for us. Your devious mind, my killer instincts... What a team we would have made. Lilah: Could still make. Angelus: Always were a closer. Unfortunately, with the new big scary in town, you're just not looking so tough anymore. And I'm a winning team kind of a guy. Couple that with the recent people shortage — you know, you're lucky I'm letting you yak this long.

    • Cordelia: You're too scared to believe in anything because you're too scared to hope. You won't even open your eyes to the possibility. Lilah: You don't get it, do you, Twinkie? I'm what I believe in. And you think I got this far by sticking my head in the sand? The Beast that eviscerated me has a boss. And that boss is going to end life as we know it, and nobody is coming to save us. Not Angel, not the Powers That Be, and not the Forty-damn-Second Calvary. So if anybody has scales on their eyes... it's you.

    • Lilah: He's going to kill us.
      Cordelia: I know. (stabs Lilah in the neck and Lilah drops to the floor) Why do you think I let him out, you stupid bitch?

    • (after Gunn has killed the Soul Eater) Connor: Nice. Gunn: Yeah, sometimes you just gotta keep whackin'...

    Notes (1)

    • In the original script for this episode, Angelus killed Lilah at the end. This was done so that if the script leaked out, the revelation that Cordelia was the big bad would remain a secret.

    Trivia (2)

    • When Lilah fires her gun the slide doesn't move and no spent shells are ejected. When the gun is empty the slide doesn't lock back as it would on an empty clip.

    • When they cut back to the hotel after Connor and Gunn behead the demon, not much time has appeared to pass and everyone else is wearing the same clothes and hairstyle, but Fred has stepped out to get her hair curled and get a new set of clothes.

    Allusions (2)

    • Cordelia: (To Angel) You might be their only hope, Obi-Wan. This is the second reference to Star Wars in this episode. Obi-Wan Kenobi first appears in Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope, seemingly a mysterious hermit. He is revealed as a Jedi Master, who then tutors Luke Skywalker to use the Force.

    • Gunn: That Shaman shoulda never been brought here. Now instead of worrying about the big, bad rock eater, we got Darth Vampire living in the basement.
      This is a reference to the Star Wars villain Darth Vader, a Sith Lord and the primary villain of the original three films (episodes IV, V, and VI).
