    Trivia (7)

    • When Angel and gang enter the museum, the tape on the door latch is placed vertically (and only one or two strips). However, later when Wesley and Cordelia go to the museum, the tape blocking the latch is in numerous strips and placed horizontally.

    • They say in the episode that they are going to the Museum of Natural History but the scenes with Kate and Wesley are clearly from the Gene Autry Museum.

    • When J-Don is standing between the two buses, you can see his reflection.

    • The first time the group drop the box with the shroud, the glass shattered with a lot of cracks. But when they all take it back to the garage to open it up, there are only two major cracks, and they're much smaller and cleaner.

    • During the museum scene Kate's hair changes from one style to another and back again depending on the camera angle.

    Allusions (1)

    • Angel: (to Gunn) You know, I'm getting pretty sick of this vampires-killed-my-sister-so-now-I'm-all-entitled song. Don't you know anything else? Like say, ah, "MacArthur Park"?

      "MacArthur Park" is a song by Jimmy Webb, first released in 1968. It is about a lovers' break-up and has been covered more than 50 times, despite its bizarre lyrics and unusual metaphors.
