    • Harmony: You're forgetting one thing: (vamps out) kinda have the advantage. Tamika: (vamps out) Kinda not!

    • Spike: (turns to leave) Yeah. Here's the thing. Could use a little walkin'-around money. How 'bout a few hundred? Angel: How 'bout no? Spike: Typical, you cheap sod. Right, then. Settle for some wheels. Angel: If it's gonna get you out of here faster, fine. Just not the Viper. Spike: Viper it is, then.

    Notes (3)

    • David Fury usually writes Harmony's bigger episodes (see "Disharmony" and from Buffy: "Real Me" and "Crush"), but because he was writing and directing "You're Welcome" Elizabeth and Sarah were assigned to write "Harm's Way."

    • The song that plays as Harmony wakes up is "Hey Sailor" by Detroit Cobras.

    • This is the second episode named after Harmony - the first was "Disharmony" (2.17). She is the only character to have a second episode named like that.

    Trivia (10)

    • The second time Harmony removes the bowl from the microwave to put in Angel's blood, there is a brief glimpse of it behind her as Danny confronts her about it. In that shot, a metal spoon can be seen sticking out of the bowl that was not there when she removed it from inside the microwave (and good thing, too).

    • At 34:38 when Harmony is yelling at Danny, the fridge door is open behind him. Yet when she shoves him back, the door is suddenly closed.

    • Tamika worked at Wolfram & Hart and therefore should have been tested for human blood regularly, as all the vampires are, so she should have been caught at some point.

    • In this episode Harmony makes a big deal over the fact that she is a "right-biter" with Fred. But in just the previous episode, "Destiny", we see her doing a "left-bite" on Spike.

    • In the scene that Angel is listening to a tape while Harmony is reading him his appointments, his hair is shorter than in the next scene when he decapitates Eli.

    Allusions (3)

    • Fred: Grab some wine, jam to the Dixie Chicks. The Dixie Chicks are an all female country music trio; this country music group is very popular in Fred's native Texas. At the time this episode was filmed, the band had been widely criticized by conservatives for making anti-George Bush remarks, so this may also be an indication that Fred has fairly liberal political views.

    • Narrator: Weyland-Yutani
      In the opening orientation film, Weyland-Yutani is mentioned as one of Wolfram & Hart's clients. Weyland-Yutani is the evil/ruthless futuristic "Company" of the Alien films.

    • Narrator: Yoyodyne
      Yoyodyne Industries is the fictional company created by John Bigboote and the evil Lectoids of the 8th Dimension in the movie The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai," although it was taken in turn from Thomas Pynchon's novel The Crying of Lot 49.
