  • Quotes (27)

    • Swami: You're deeply ambivalent. Angel: Yeah, well, I am but I'm not.

    • Cordelia: Look! Angel: Virginia Bryce, squired by Mr. Wesley Wyndam-Pryce, private detective and bodyguard to the stars... "Squired"? Who says "squired"? Cordelia: Look at him all over her! Angel: Cordelia, you're just jealous that he's getting some attention. Cordelia: Damn skippy! He's getting famous off this! Reflected glory? That's my thing! Angel: Get a little perspective. "Bodyguard to the stars." Yeah right. There's no "Wyndam-Price Agency!

    • Wesley: You know, this whole "curse" thing has been widely misinterpreted. Virginia: Really? Wesley: Oh yes. Less-- less of a curse, more of a hex, really. Barely that. A recommendation.

    • Cordelia: And this whole "I'm Angel" thing is a very, very bad idea. I mean, if I thought that would work, I could've been Angel, because, guess what? Pretty much a girly name.

    • Cordelia: What are you doing? Wesley: Oh, knocking things over, driving away business… You know, the usual. Cordelia: Well, I found him and we have to stop him before it's too late. We have to change our… Do you have any clothes a man would wear?

    Trivia (9)

    • When Cordelia is talking to Gunn about the abduction of Wesley she mentions checking mug shots, but the computer behind them is already flipping through mug shots when she goes to the computer to access them.

    • When Wesley as Angel shakes Magnus' hand and every time Wesley touches Virginia, neither seem to notice that Wesley's skin is body temperature, not room temperature as it should be. Also, Virginia didn't notice Wesley's rapidly beating heart as they made love?

    • As Angel walks up to the swami's house you can clearly see his reflection in the water outside it.

    • When Wesley puts the drawer on the front desk there are still files on it, but when the man arrives and he comes up there aren't any files in the drawer anymore.

    • When Wesley is thrown into the sunlight, there are a few reaction shots of Cordelia where her hair style doesn't look like it matches up with the rest of the scene.

    Allusions (2)

    • The Host/Lorne: You're Rocky and Rocky II, and half of the one with Mr. T.

      This is a reference to the film Rocky and its first two sequels, Rocky II and Rocky III, about a boxer who fights for a chance to prove his worth both in the ring and out.

    • Cordelia: It's like they don't even know you're a Shemp.
      Shemp Howard is most famous (or infamous) for being the replacement for his brother Curly, in the popular comedy group The Three Stooges. He was resented by many fans for not being as funny as Curly. The term has also seen usage in Sam Raimi films where stunt-doubles, photo-doubles and stand-ins are referred to as "Shemps." This itself is a reference to a period in the Three Stooges' career when the real Shemp Howard was recovering from a stroke and was frequently doubled onscreen by unconvincing lookalikes.
