  • Trivia

    • In the scene at Caritas, where Fred is pointing the crossbow at Gio's throat, the distance between the bolt and his neck is different in each camera angle but she is not moving.

    • At the end of the episode as Angel and Gunn walk away, you can see Angel's reflection in the wet ground.

  • Quotes

    • Angel: (About the Furies) Tell them to lift the spell, and I'll be able to fight back.
      Cordelia: Yes! They'll lift the spell and then you can fight... all 20 of them and still get killed. GREAT idea.

    • Angel: (to Gunn) Nice shot. Am I next?

    • Rondell: (about Angel) He ain't your friend. I am. And you gonna choose that over me?
      Gunn: Looks like. It's about the mission, bro. He's got it. You don't.

    • Gunn: No matter what else, I think I proved that you can trust me when I could have killed you and I didn't.
      Angel: No - you'll prove I can trust you when the day comes that you have to kill me - and you do.

    • Merl: Real friends don't need notes.
      Angel: We're not friends, Merl. We barely even know each other.

    • Cordelia: (While Fred is singing "Crazy" on stage) I swear, she picked out the song herself.

    • Wesley: This is madness. Angel has a soul.
      Gio: He's a vampire.
      Wesley: With a soul!
      Gio: Whatever. - You think that makes him the same as us?
      Wesley: No. Better. (To Gio) Better than you, anyway. When he did his pleasure killing he had no soul. You can make no such claim.

    • Wesley: (to Rondell) If you don't mind I'd prefer a clean kill. The last time I was merely wounded. It took months to heal. Wounded, if I recall, in an attempt to help you.

    • Angel: What's this?
      Cordy: Enemies of Merl list.
      Angel: Hey. - Why is my name at the top of this list?
      Cordy: Ah - 'a'?
      Angel: Merl and I were not enemies.
      Cordy: Oh, okay, my mistake.
      Angel: I'm the one that found the body, remember?
      Cordy: Oh. And that's not suspicious.

    • Wesley: It was them. They killed Merl and the others. (to Gunn) You knew.
      Gunn: I should have said something. I was going to. I was just... I was trying to work it out, man. Figure how to deal.
      Lorne: So, have you worked it out yet?

    • Gunn: (about killing Angel) You think I won't kill him because he's my friend? That ain't why. Truth is, he can never be my friend. It's on account of what he is. Not his fault, really. Just the way it worked out.

    • Furies: (Repeatedly over the course of the episode) Mmm...Angel.

    • Cordelia: (about Fred) Angel - I told her she was safe with me.
      Angel: I know.

    • Angel: Look, I want you to go to this address.
      Cordy: What is it?
      Angel: Transuding Furies.
      Cordy: Gesundheit.

    • Angel: If I had killed Merl, would I have brought doughnuts?

    • (apologizing to Merl)
      Angel: That night still haunts me. I'm ashamed how I treated you, the way I used you. I took what I needed, then I cast you aside and that was wrong of me, it was very wrong.
      Merl: He's reading!
      Angel: I made some notes.

    • Furies: Only Angel is equipped to make good on the debt.
      Cordy: Angel, pfft! I don't know, you know for a guy who's a couple of centuries old, not very big with the wise investing. And, when you say "equipped," that isn't what you meant, is it?

    • Merl: What do I want? I'll tell you what I want - I want back the 3 months I spent in therapy after being hung upside down in a sewer - that's what I want.

    • Wesley: (to Gunn) If you ever withhold information or attempt to subvert me again, I will fire you. I can't have any one member of the team compromising the safety of the group, no matter who it is. If you do it again you will be dismissed, bag and baggage, out of a job onto the streets.

  • Notes

    • Music:
      Sung by Fred at Caritas -- "Crazy" by Patsy Cline

      Sung by Gio -- "Wind Beneath My Wings" by Larry J. Henley and Jeff Alan Silbar

    • This conversation showing Cordelia's difficulty in getting to know Fred was cut from the episode due to time constraints.
      Cordelia: You're exactly the sort of girl who would have hated me in high school.
      Fred: Oh, I'm sure that's not true.
      Cordelia: No, no it is. I pretty much saw to it. I was a cheerleader, had power, popularity. You didn't know me then.
      Fred: No I didn't. I knew you when you were a princess.
      Cordelia: Uh, right. Anyway...

    • This is the final on-screen appearance of Gunn's gang. They will later be mentioned in 'Double or Nothing' and 'Not Fade Away.'

    • This episode was intended to be aired as the second episode of the season but was switched and aired as the third instead.
