Detective Kate Lockley
The name of the Middle School, Parker is printed on the Fall Bus Schedule that Angel finds on Ben's desk and is also the name of Booth's son in the Bones series, where David Boreanaz stars when the series Angel ends.
In Sense and Sensitivity (1x06), Kate teases Angel about having a single name, a conceit usually reserved for rock stars and popes. Angel ripostes, "You've got me. I'm the Pope." In this episode the media labels the serial killer "The Pope."
When Kate first arrives at the scene of the attempted fourth murder, another cop says to her that they've sealed off all of the exits. However, when Angel drives around the block there are several doors on the ground floor with no one around them.
Angel shows Kate a suspect sketch - presumably done by him - of Penn. Later, when Kate is talking to other police officers about where to station patrols, she looks at a photocopy (not the original folded paper) of the sketch. It is obviously very different from the one Angel gave her. The eyebrows are completely different.
Wesley attempts to invite Angel into Penn's apartment, however he, as a former Watcher should know that not only does a vampires homes not work with the invitation rule, but he couldn't have invited him in anyway since he didn't live there. (which was later established in the Buffy episode 'Real Me')
Kate says she has been researching Angel. However, when Angel-as-Angelus first appeared in sister series Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Giles said he couldn't find any mention of Angelus except in the Watcher Journals. Given this, it seems odd that Kate could find the same information, which she quotes verbatim ("a demon with the face of an angel").
One possible explanation is the fact that it is not hard to imagine that the phrase "demon with the face of an angel" was invented several times. Kate was looking up the M.O, whereas Giles was looking up Angel/Angelus by name. She might have put two and two together herself and assigned blame to Angelus/Angel without ever having read his name.
Angel is wearing a black leather trench coat when he comes through the ceiling at the warehoue, and it's covered with dust and plaster. In the next scene at the office it's perfectly spotless.
When Kate arrives at the crime scene of the third victim, she has no gloves on. Then she gets to the police tape, and still no gloves. Then in the next shot from the front, she's seen just finishing pulling a glove on that has appeared on her hand conspicuously fast.
When Angel leaves the office to visit Kate he is wearing a grey sweater, but when he arrives he's wearing a black silk shirt.
As he would have had to go downstairs anyway in order to take the tunnels, it's possible he changed outfits, but why would he when he had presumably just put the sweater on a few minutes before when he got up?
When Wesley first reads the newspaper, it has a headline referring to apartments. Later when he shows it to Cordy the headline says "Third Victim Found in Alley."
Angel: I'm sorry what I did to you, Penn, what I turned you into.
Penn: A first class killer? A bold re-interpreter of the form?
Angel: Try cheesy hack. Look at you. You've been getting back at your father for over 200 years. It's pathetic and cliched. You've probably got a killer shrine on your wall. News clippings, magazine articles, maybe a few candles. Oh, you are so prosaic.
Wesley: Oh, I invite you in. (while saying this he gives Angel the universal signal for "stop" then waves him forward)
Angel: Relax, that's only for humans. Breaking and entering another vampire's lair is no problem.
Cordelia: Oh crap! You're him... he... the guy. Apt pupil boy.
Penn: We were to meet in Italy, remember?
Angel: I remember.
Penn: Well, I waited. Hell, I waited until the 19th century. What happened?
Angel: Got held up in Romania.
Penn: Romania. What's in Romania?
Cordelia: And no offense, Angel, but maybe you are just committing these horrible crimes in your dreams, but even so, I don't wanna stick around for your nocturnal commissions.
Cordelia: If you're wondering why this vein on my temple is doing the cha-cha, it's because I just had one of those bone-crunching, mind-splitting, vision headaches.
Angel: I was just thinking about how much this place is like where I grew up.
Cordelia: Right. Yeah. I can see that, except for the cars and the buildings and the, you know, everything else.
Wesley: You fear these might be more than just dreams, that you're acting them out in some sort of hypnagogic state.
Cordelia: Vampires can't sleepwalk. He'd take one step out the front door, and his PJs would burst into flames.
Angel: I'm not gonna hurt you.
Cordelia: Oh, is that what you said to Miss Third Body Found in Alley?
Wesley: While executing my duties as Watcher in Sunnydale, I did extensive research, specifically on Angel, given his uncomfortable proximity to the Slayer.
Cordelia: He looked pretty comfortable to me.
Wesley: Notice the modus operandi? The mutilation of the corpse with a religious icon?
Cordelia: I'm against it?
Cordelia: (to Angel) Wow, you look half-dead. Which for someone who's completely dead would be... kinda neat?
Wesley: Where'd you get the police radio?
Angel: Police car.
Wesley: Oh dear!
Angel: Gimmie a stake.
Cordelia: It's like eight in the morning...oh, you mean like (pantomimes staking a vampire). Okay.
Cordelia: Gallagher's changed his act more times than this dude has in the last two centuries. Why do you think he's still doing the same old shtick?
Wesley: Well, I mean it's a classic isn't it? (pause) Every time he smashes that watermelon with a sledgehammer I just...
Penn: You're right , Angelus. My act was getting stale. I appreciate the critique. So look for something new, innovative... something shockingly original. Just think of the worst thing that could happen, and I'll see you there!
Cordelia: (to Wesley) I don't care how many files you have on all the horrible things that he did back in the Powdered Wig Days. He is good now. And he is my friend. And nothing you or anyone else can say will make me turn on a friend.
Angel: Cordelia, he's right.
Cordelia: You stake him, and I'll cut his head off.
Angel: It's gotta end.
Penn: Why, because you say so? How does that work exactly? Do you just wake up one morning and decide, "Okay, now I'm good?" No, Angelus, it doesn't end, it never ever ends. It just goes on and on.
Cordelia: That's not the only thing that goes on and on.
Wesley: You recall earlier this morning that mix-up with the dentists mail and newspaper? (shows her a newspaper clipping) That's when I saw this.
Cordelia: Oh, my God! You cut up Dr. Folger's newspaper? You're going to get us kicked out of this building.
Wesley: You can't walk into a police precinct with intimate knowledge about these murders and claim a 200 year-old Puritan is responsible. You'd be locked up faster than Lady Hamilton's virtue! (to Cordelia) My apologies...
Cordelia: (pause) That's okay. I-I don't know what that meant.
Cordelia: People really do change.
Angel: Yes they do...and sometimes they change back. If the day ever comes that I...
Cordelia: Oh, I'll kill you dead.
Cordelia: What are friends for?
Cordelia: Good news, sports fans! There's been another killing. Okay, well maybe not so great news for the, you know, dead person. But at least now we know that Mr. I'm So Tortured didn't do it.
Cordelia: (while tying Angel to the bed) The glamorous L.A. life. I get to make the coffee and chain the boss to a bed. Gotta join a union.
Angel: Cordelia, I think that's tight enough.
Cordelia: And if it turns out we're back on a liquid lunch? Better safe than cocktails.
Angel: I stalk them, toy with them, mark them while they're still alive. Before they can die from their fear, I feed on them.
Cordelia: Okay, so you've been having nightmares, it doesn't mean you ...
Angel: They're not nightmares. I've enjoyed them.
Penn: You approved of me in ways my mortal father never did! You're my real father, Angelus.
Angel: Fine! You're grounded.
Kate: Angel, are you okay? Not that the brooding "man of mystery" thing isn't working for you. I mean it is, a lot.
When Penn is pinning the newspaper headline to the wall in his apartment -- "Confusion" by New Order.
This marks the first time we hear the change in pronunciation of "Angelus". Throughout the Buffy series, it was always pronounced the same as the Roman Catholic "Angelus" (morning prayers)-in other words, similar to the "Angeles" in the common English pronunciation of "Los Angeles". Here they have changed the emphasis to the second syllable, as though you were saying "an jealous".
This is the way Joss Whedon always meant for Angelus to be pronounced, but didn't bother correcting people until Angel got his own show.
Cordelia mentions, with some sarcasm, that she is glad that no one gouged her eyes out. This is a reference to the previous episode, in which her eyes were going to be "harvested" for her seer's ability.
As Cordelia tries to persuade Angel to take a licence plate problem to Kate, she offers this argument, which was cut due to episode length.
Cordelia: Just remind her that if it wasn't for you she'd be the curdled gooey leftovers of a proto-Babylonian Burrower demon. Or words to that effect. You'll pretty it up.
The ending of the title sequence is changed slightly to feature Angel and Cordelia with Wesley instead of Doyle.
After the events of the previous two episodes, Glenn Quinn has been removed from the opening titles and Alexis Denisof, last seen as a recurring character on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, is added.
Angel's speech about changing back to Angelus foreshadows the events of "Eternity" (1x17), where Angel does (temporarily) become Angelus.
This is the first episode that Kate becomes aware of the existence of demons as well as Angel's true past.
The title, "Somnambulist," means "sleepwalker."
Alexis Denisof joins the regular cast from this episode as Wesley Wyndam-Price.
This episode, and its title are reminiscent of "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari," a 1920 German film directed by Robert Wiene. In the movie, a doctor hypnotizes a somnambulist to commit murders while he is asleep, which is in a way similar to the dreams Angel has at the beginning of the episode. Also, in the movie, Cesare, the somnambulist, kidnaps the hero's love, similar to Penn kidnapping Kate Lockley.
Cordelia: And no offense, Angel, but maybe you are just committing these horrible crimes in your dreams, but even so, I don't want to stick around for your nocturnal commissions.
Nocturnal commissions is a play on nocturnal emissions, a natural process that occurs when a boy reaches puberty.
Wesley: You'd be locked up faster than Lady Hamilton's virtue!
Lady Hamilton (nee Emma Hamilton) is best known as the mistress of Horatio Nelson, a British admiral who won fame for participating in the Napoleonic Wars. But before Nelson, she was already famous for being the mistress of several men and posing for "Goddess of Health" by James Graham.
Cordelia: (referring to Penn) Apt Pupil Boy
"Apt Pupil" is a novella by Stephen King which was also made into a movie of the same name. It is about a young man who seeks out a former Nazi. The young man forces the Nazi to become his mentor. The relationship is parallel to Angel and Penn where Angel is the mentor teaching Penn how to be a killer.
Cordelia: Gallagher has changed his act more times than this dude has in the last two centuries.
Gallagher is an American comedian who relies a lot on props and physical humour. His act has remained fairly consistent over the years and the highlight of it is when he smashes watermelons with a sledgehammer. People who have been to previous performances know to wear raincoats if they sit in the first few rows.
Cordelia: Psycho-wan Kenobi...
Obi Wan Kenobi is a Jedi Knight in the Star Wars movies.
