Alan Francis Doyle
Detective Kate Lockley
This season of the show was filmed in the then-standard 4:3 ratio, but in some re-airings (notably in the UK) the episodes were incorrectly shown in a widescreen format. In this episode, when shown in the wider format, during the fight with Neil, when Angel gets thrown into the corner of the room, breaking the lamp and end-table sitting nearby, a crew member can be seen on the right edge of the screen. In the correct display ratio, the cameraman is out of the shot.
The phone number on Angel's business cards is 213-555-0162. The "555" exchange is commonly used in entertainment because it is reserved for information services. This means that no active number will use the exchange. The "213" area code identifies the location as Los Angeles.
While searching the internet, Angel, Cordelia and Doyle come across two newspapers. They are supposedly published within the last couple of months, but if you check the dates the first article was published in 1957 and the other in 1919.
Cordelia's angel design on the new business cards are mistaken for: a butterfly (Angel), a bird (Doyle) and a lobster (Kate).
During Angel's fight with the geek, stuntmen's faces are visible in several instances.
When Kate and Angel are trapped in the basement, Angel produces a Batmanesque gadget to help him get to a window 20-feet up. In later episodes, vampires, including Angel, are seen to scale the sides of buildings and other tall, flat surfaces, thus making the gadget unnecessary, except possibly to hide his vampirism or because it is too hard to climb while carrying someone.
This may also just be another of the frequent jokes comparing Angel unfavorably to Batman, since Batman is known for using such devices.
The DVD subtitles for the song "Touched" by Vast are incredibly incorrect. The lines it shows are "The lizards and the dying rose, is proof I don't need you along. The demi-Gods and angry ghosts. So God, God knows I'm not at home. I'll never find someone quite like you. Again. I'll never find someone quite like you. I, I looked into your eyes and sighed. Oh, that does not exist. I looked into your eyes and sighed. Oh, I wish I was --". The actual lyrics that should be shown are "The razors and the dying roses plead I don't leave you alone. The demi-Gods and hungry ghosts. God, God knows I'm not at home. I'll never find someone quite like you, again. I'll never find someone quite like you. Like you. I, I looked into your eyes and saw a world that does not exist. I looked into your eyes and saw a world that I wish I was in." The DVD subtitles would make someone hearing the song for the first time think that the singer couldn't even form a coherent sentence.
In the scene when Angel runs after the barman towards the end, after the barman has tried to pass on the demon to Kate and Angel stopped him, there is a mirror, and when Angel runs past it, he has a reflection.
After the fight with Tahlmer, Angel stands up and is not bleeding. When he faces Kate, he has a bleeding wound on his forehead. When he shows up at Cordy's shortly thereafter, the wound is gone (although the latter may be just quick vampiric healing).
Kate: So, did you... did you just stop in?
Angel: No, I'm sort of looking for someone.
Kate: Oh, if I'm keeping you, you know...
Angel: No, no, no. I'm just looking for someone to... rescue. Are you maybe in need of some rescuing?
Kate: Well, that's the strangest line I'm gonna hear tonight.
Kate: I didn't thank you... for saving my life.
Angel: I think saving mine was a start.
Cordelia: Demons. Is there anything more disgusting?
Doyle: You think so?
Cordelia: Come on. Look at this one. This demon wears a wreath of intestines around its head. I mean honestly, what kind of statement is this thing trying to make?
Angel: This socializing thing is brutal. I mean I was young once. I used to go to bars. It was never like this.
Doyle: No, you used to go to taverns man. Small towns, everybody used to know each other.
Cordelia: Yeah, like high school. It's easy to date there. We all had so much in common. Being monster food every other week for instance.
Angel: I'm just wondering... You notice anything unusual here tonight?
Angel: Yeah, you know, out of the ordinary... Possibly even dangerous?
Bartender: Don't worry, it's early yet. The really hot women don't usually mosey in until after 11:00.
Doyle: Well, we put together that list of eviscerating demons that you asked for. We actually narrowed down to three or four...
Angel: I saw it. It's a burrower.
Cordelia: It's a donkey? Oh, we didn't see any donkey demons.
Angel: How'd you pick up computer skills?
Cordelia: Downloading pictures of naked women?
Doyle: Well that's more or less accurate.
Angel: I know you guys have been working hard and cooped up inside a lot. And, uh, to show my appreciation, I was thinking, the night being you know, young and all... that the three of us could, well, should maybe ... go out. You know... for fun.
Cordelia: Or.... we can... go home!
Doyle: And you can sit in the dark alone.
Angel: God yes. Thank you.
Kate: Sure, that's actually on my To Do list this week, "Walk into serial killer's trap."
Talmar: You're not human.
Angel: Newsflash, pal, you're a bit off the evolutionary chart yourself.
Angel: Are you okay?
Girl: Well now, that's for you to find out.
Angel: No, I mean, I'd really like to know. So, how do you want to do this? Twenty questions?
Kate: I prefer those cool bars that are hard to get into, but I can't get into them.
Kate: Depends on how many daiquiris I've had. Oh, God, way to come off like a drunken slut. Slut's better then a hypocrite though, right? I'm moving up.
Angel: Kind of hard on yourself.
Kate: That's me a self-flagellating-hypocrite-slut.
Kate: I sound like a big hypocrite, don't I? Ragging on this place. I still come here most every night. How else are you going to meet somebody outside of work? It's either this, or sit at home alone in the dark.
Angel: Hmm. Wouldn't want that.
Cordelia: Plus, your visions are kind of lame. A bar? That's nice and vague. I mean, they should send you one of those self-destructing tapes, you know, that comes with a dossier?
Doyle: Well, I'll be sure to mention it.
Doyle: Tell her what a great guy I am.
Angel: I barely know you.
Doyle: Well, perfect, that should make it easier for ya.
Kate: Well you just looked bad. Not that you look bad. You look very nice. I think I'm just going to have my drink.
Kate: For thinking you look bad, or thinking you look good?
Angel: You choose.
Doyle: This isn't a marketing seminar, princess. You know, we need to operate a little bit more below radar.
Cordelia: What radar?
Doyle: The police. You know the service our friend Angel provides? Might put someone in mind to the V word.
Doyle: No, vigilante.
Doyle: You know, maybe we should go over this thing again of you getting out in the world and involving yourself with people. It's Friday night! It's the most social night of the week! I mean a couple of lookers like us should be out there enjoying the night life, instead you're sitting here moping around in the dark like some kind of a ...
Doyle: Well, yeah, I was gonna say slacker, but yeah, to you Mr. Obvious.
Kate: I'm sorry, that was harsh.
Angel: Hey, no. I'm not very good at this... talking.
Cordelia: How's Angel doing?
(some guy angrily walks away from Angel)
Angel: Seriously, I wasn't hitting on you.
Doyle: (to Cordelia) See, you need to chat people up a bit more casual like, you know? "Hi, what's your name? How's life treating you? What's that you say? Minions from hell getting you down?"
Doyle: Violence isn't going to solve a thing here. (headbutts guy harrassing Cordelia) On the other hand, it is kind of festive.
Angel: You actually live here?
Cordelia: Hey, is it my fault if maid service was interrupted? It was supposed to go home, hotel, hotel, husband.
(Doyle, picks up a lacy brassiere and holds it to his chest)
Cordelia: That is so high school. "Cordelia wears bras! Oh, she has girlie parts!"
Kate: You're telling me you're an investigator?
Angel: More or less.
Kate: Where is your license?
Angel: That's the less part
Cordelia: I guess the single life is particularly tough on you.
Cordelia: Well, a couple hundred years ago, the only thing you had to worry about was a hangover. Today, because of your curse thingy, you can't sleep with anyone or else you might feel a moment of true happiness and lose your soul, become evil -- again -- and kill everyone.
Angel: Thanks Cordelia. I always appreciate your perspective.
Cordelia: No problem. Hey. The last thing I want is to show up at the office and find that I'm working for a homicidal monster.
Cordelia: What's with those vision things of yours?
Doyle: Well, they're messages I get, from the higher powers, whoever they are. You know, it's my gift.
Cordelia: If that was my gift, I'd return it.
(Cordelia designs a new business card)
Angel: There's our number.... it's right next to a, um, a butterfly?
Doyle: It's obviously not a butterfly you idiot, it's a, uh... bird. No, wait, no it's an owl! A bird that hunts at night! Brilliant! It's a ....
Cordelia: It's an angel!
Cordelia: Hi! If you're in trouble just call this number. We can help. Hi! Being harassed by someone or something? Dial us up, day or night. Hey, you look troubled, or is that just your lazy eye? Anyway, call us. We're very discreet.
Kate: Well, I'll tell you what. I can go wherever I want, and you can go to Hell.
(Kate walks into D'Oblique)
Angel: (to himself) Been there. Done that.
Doyle: I think we deserve a night of fun, don't you think? I mean, it breaks up the nights of death and mayhem.

David Boreanaz does the "previously on Angel" voiceover for the first time on the series.
First appearance of Elisabeth Rohm as Detective Kate Lockley on the series.
If you watch the opening credits, James A. Contner is credited as a Co-Producer, even though in reality, he's the Director. This is apparently a normal habit of Contner who is credited like that in other shows too. Supposedly it is part of his directing contract to be credited as Co-Producer.
This episode was a replacement for an original David Fury script called "Corrupt." Intending Angel to be much darker in tone, Fury wrote the script which involved Kate taking drugs and prostituting herself and Angel licking blood off a murder victim. Understandably, when the WB read this they were horrified, production was closed down, and David Fury had to write a whole new script. That script became this episode.
Tracy Stone, who played the Pretty Girl (Marcie), also played on Malibu Shores with Charisma Carpenter in the episode "The Fall" in 1996.
Cordelia invites Angel into her apartment.
Doyle explains that the invitation rule for vampires only stays in effect while the owner of the home is alive.
The two newspapers Doyle found the murders in were the West Hollywood Courier and the Los Angeles Globe Register.
Kate: Well, I'll tell you what, I can go wherever I want, and you can go to Hell.
Angel: Been there, done that
This is a reference to the time Angel spent in a hell dimension after Buffy sends him there in season two of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Doyle: It's not like you have a signal folks can shine in the sky whenever they need help, you know?
The Batsignal is a device used by Gotham City to summon Batman, a costumed crime fighter from DC Comics that inspired several TV shows, cartoons and films.
Cordelia: Cagney and Lacey Kate? I thought we were hiding from her.
Cagney and Lacey was a 1982-1988 TV series starring Sharon Gless as Christine Cagney and Tyne Daly as Mary Beth Lacey, two women police detectives.
Bartender: Ah, she was there just a minute ago, getting it on with some Screech.
Screech is a character from the 1989 television series Saved by the Bell played by actor Dustin Diamond.
Cordelia: Plus, your visions are kind of lame. A bar? That's nice and vague! I mean they should send you one of those self-destructing tapes, you know, that come with a dossier?
The 1966 TV series Mission: Impossible featured self-destructing tapes used to send the main character on his assignment. An interesting fact is that Mission: Impossible regulars Martin Landau and Barbara Bain are the real life parents of Juliet Landau, who plays the vampire Drusilla on both Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel.
Cordelia: Well, you've got to be rich to snag the Calvin Klein model she's leaving with.
Calvin Klein is a designer whose self-titled firm (founded 1968) was instrumental in the late '70s-early '80s designer jeans craze. In 1979-80, TV ads shot by Richard Avedon featured featherweight pubescent actress Brooke Shields purring "You know what comes between me and my Calvins? Nothing" Klein has consistently prospered through provocative advertising. In the '80s TV and print ads for his fragrance Obsession and underwear line used images that were variously pretentious and erotic, but always talked-about.
Cordelia: Check out Sarah, Plain and Tall. Has or comes from big money. Sarah, Plain And Tall is a book by Patricia MacLachlin about a 19th century mail order bride.
Cordelia: You see jazz-hands over there? Mama's boy. Peter Pan complex.
Peter Pan is a book by J.M. Barrie. The Plot: The three Darling family children receive a visit from Peter Pan, a boy who never grew up. Peter takes them to Never Never Land where an ongoing war with the evil pirate Captain Hook is taking place.
A Peter Pan complex is a pop-psychology term which is used to describe a person (usually male) who, like the title character in Barrie's book, refuses to grow up.
Sharon: Yeah, I had that. Only I had a him, where you had a her. Actually I just had a Ken and Barbie.
Ken and Barbie are a famous doll line by Mattel.
