In both Buffy and Angel, whenever someone decapitates a vampire, they turn to dust and leave no blood on the weapon, yet when Angel is in the sewers and ambushes the vampire group, the last one he decapitates and for a split second you see blood on the blade when there shouldn't be any.
When Drusilla and Darla are fleeing the warehouse on fire to break open the firehydrent, it is apparent from their hair that both of them are already wet.
When Drusilla and Darla are set ablaze by Angel, Drusilla's form-fitting sweater suddenly becomes really baggy.
In many episodes of Buffy and Angel they have stated that fire kills vampires. Darla and Drusilla should have turned to ash quickly and not have had time to run and put themselves out.
When Angel is walking down the stairs at the hotel you can see his reflection in the glass door.
In previous Angel and Buffy episodes, Angel's angel tattoo was low on his shoulder blade, but in the closing scene, it's high on his shoulder. But hey, atleast he has his tattoo.
Where did Angel get the hooded sweatshirt he wore to the club? When he left the sewers en route all he had was a black pullover sweater.
In previous episodes Merl has stated he doesn't have a tongue. When Angel hangs him upside down you can clearly see the actor's tongue.
Wesley: We need to get her to a hospital.
Gunn: What about you?
Wesley: Oh, I'm fine. It's just... (looks at wound) We should go before I pass out... or possibly during.
Drusilla: My little bird is anxious.
Darla: Yeah, well, recruiting a legion of demons is stressful, Dru.
Merl: I heard about your girls-- Godzilla, Darcilla, whatever.
Lindsey: Why'd you spare me Darla?
Darla: Do you really have to ask? I'm in love with you.
(Darla, Drusilla, and Lilah all laugh)
Darla: Shut up, Lilah.
Virginia: He fired you? He can't fire you. You're on a mission to protect the innocent. You can't fire someone on a mission. What did he say exactly?
Wesley: "You're fired."
Virginia: Oh. Well, can you file a grievance with the union?
Wesley: Virginia, I'm not in a union. I'm a... I don't even know what the name of my job is. Was.
Angel: (voice over) I'm not ready yet. Too many years spent sleeping in soft beds, living in a world where I don't belong. I can't fight them. Not yet. But soon.
Drusilla: Dank and dark. It reeks of death.
Darla: That's motor oil, Dru.
Gunn:I dont know. I mean if I had to listen to the two of you day in and day out. Snipe snipe snipe. Bitch bitch bitch. I figure yall got off easy, cuz I would have killed you.
Cordelia:Scoffs That's rich, coming from Mr. "I don't take orders, now where do I stick my axe?"
Darla: Why is everyone trying to make this about Angel? I mean, for God's sake, can't a girl wreak a little havoc without there being a man involved?
Wesley: I just thought you'd like to know that we're keeping the agency open. You may have turned your back on your mission but we haven't. Someone has to fight the good fight.
Angel: (voice over) Let them fight the good fight. Someone has to fight the war.
Virginia: Well, his loss is the world's gain. You'll get another job (snaps fingers) just like that! What else can you do?
Wesley: (thinks long and hard) Not much.
Virginia: You know what it is? He's jealous.
Wesley: Your father?
Virginia: No, Angel! You had to impersonate him to rescue me, and you were too good an Angel!
Wesley: ...I don't think so.
Lilah: Oh, what's wrong, Lindsey? You bitter cause your girlfriend didn't slit my throat?
Lindsey: I think you might be overstating it. I'd say more like "bummed."
Gunn: What about you? Maybe if you had enough visions then Angel would have been too distracted to think about this Darla chick, huh?
Cordelia: Earth to retards! If you have an obsession, you pretty much squeeze it into your schedule no matter what!!
Wesley: Ah! So you admit it is an obsession.
Corderlia: No... I mean, yes, but no!
Cordelia: Ass pansy!
Cordelia: What just happened? Can someone explain to me what just happened here?
Wesley: I believe we were fired.
Wesley: Let go.
Wesley: Shown the door.
Cordelia: Alright! I get it!
Drusilla: Dead already? Bad soldiers!
Drusilla: Ten little soldiers all in a line. A shot rings out – down to nine.
Darla: You know, in a perfect world, Angel would be here right now helping me burn this city to the ground. This is his job I'm doing. But where is he? Probably flogging himself in a church somewhere.
Drusilla: Ooh, flogging. Ooh, churches.
Darla: My name is Darla. This is Drusilla. We're new in town, though some of you know us by reputation.
Demon: I ain't never heard of you before.
(Drusilla rips his ears off.)
Darla: Now you never will.
Wesley: Bloody Mary, please.
Bartender: You want real blood with that.
Wesley: Uh, no. Bloodless, thanks.
Drusilla: (talking about Lindsey) He's got cow eyes - big and black. Moo.
Police Officer: You've just been through a very traumatic experience. Really, sir, you should be in a hospital.
Lindsey: She saved me.
Police Officer: That may be true, sir, but you should still be checked out by a doctor.
Lindsey: There has to be a reason why I'm the only one left.
Police Officer: You're in shock, you need to see a doctor.
Lindsey: (smiling) I'm the only one left.
Police Officer: Hey, we got a live one here.
Lindsey: (disappointed) We do?!
Wesley: Well, how is a man supposed to run a business if his employees won't follow directives?
Gunn: Was one of his directives, "Hire a pansyass British guy?"
Wesley: My ass is not pansy!
Darla: If you think you have what it takes to join us, auditions are tonight, here, at this address. Winners will have the opportunity to foment mass destruction. Losers will be gutted and left for dead. Have a nice night.
Darla: See, Lindsey, during my stint as Wolfram and Hart's puppet, something occurred to me. I loathe being used. If I recall, I sent you a fifteen-body memo to that effect.
Cordelia: One thing you can say about Angel, at least he's consistent. It's always some little blonde driving him over the edge.

This episode received a rating of 3.9/6 in the overnight Nielsen ratings, ranking 5th out out of 17 WB shows for that week.
Drusilla leaves LA after the events of this episode, intending to return with Spike. However, when he refuses to leave Sunnydale Dru decides not to return at all.
Charisma Carpenter does the "Previously on Angel" voiceover.
Angel doesn't speak to anyone in this episode; only to himself for self-reflection.
Angel sets Darla and Dru on fire at the end by smoking a cigarette and throwing it in to a trail of gasoline. Prior to this, the only instances of Angel smoking were in the Buffy the Vampire Slayer episode "Innocence" (2x14), when he lost his soul and bit in to a womans neck, killing her while sucking in her cigarette smoke and then exhailing, and in the Angel episode "Are You Now or Have You Ever Been" (2x02) during the flashbacks to when Angel was staying at the Hyperion in 1952 he smoked. Smoking is used as a symbol for Angel's turn towards the "dark side," following Joss Whedon's history of "sinful" acts, such as smoking or drinking, leading to negative actions or results.
Joss Whedon has said that this was the episode that changed and shaped all the character's personalities for the remainder of the series, basically rewriting them. Whedon himself did heavy rewriting on Mere Smith's draft of the script, but she was happy with the final result.
