Detective Kate Lockley
Time Index 36:35 - In Cordy's apartment, the boom mic is visible over Wesley's head just as he says "Oh, wait, that's due to arise in 2003...".
Time Index 25:38 - The boom mic is visible as Angel is summoning the Oracles, just after he says "I come before thee Oracles for guidance and direction."
Late in the show Cordy takes out a bottle of pop, takes off the cap and holds it. Then in the next shot she claps her hand - the bottle is on a table nearby with the cap on.
Angel knocks off Vocah's mask, but it reappears on his face and then disappears again in successive shots just before Angel kills him.
When Wes and Cordy are sharing a donut, watch carefully: in continual shots it goes from whole to ripped in half to missing a bite to a complete break to just missing a bite again.
When Angel opens his weapon locker, there are three sais hanging on the left-hand door. When Vocah opens it shortly thereafter, there is only one sai and a slim dagger.
During Cordy's vision at the outdoor market, one of the shots of her is reversed - her bracelets switch from her left wrist to her right wrist, and her purse strap switches shoulders as well.
Cordelia: I saw them all, and they're in so much pain. We have to help them.
Angel: We will. We will.
Cordelia: Well, he's going to have to start wanting things from life, whether he wants to or not!
Cordelia: Well, what are you saying Wesley? That Angel has nothing to look forward to? That he's going to go on forever, the same? In the world, but always cut off from it?
Cordelia: Well, that sucks. We've got to do something. We've got to help him!
Wesley: I'm not sure we can.
Cordelia: What is your deal? You go around boring everyone with your musty scrolls and then you say there's nothing we can do!
Wesley: He is what he is.
Cordelia: He's Angel. He's good and he helps the helpless. And now... he's one of them.
Wesley: What connects us to life is a simple truth that we're part of it. We live. We grow. We change.
Wesley: The fact that his death is prophesied, which isn't good news, doesn't concern me nearly as much as the way he took that news.
Cordelia: What? He didn't scream like a girl as some of us would have? Angel's cool.
Wesley: Angel's cut off. Death doesn't bother him because... there's nothing in life he wants. It's our desires that make us human.
Cordelia: Angel's kinda human. He's got a soul.
Wesley: He's got a soul, but he's not part of the world. He can never be part of the world.
Cordelia: It's just a prophecy. It's not like it came from on high.
Wesley: That's what a prophecy is Cordelia.
Cordelia: What's taking so long?
Wesley: Gee, I don't know Cordelia. The Prophecies of Aubergion were only written over the last 4,000 years, in a dozen different languages, some of which aren't even human! Why don't we just get a Phalangoid Demon in here? Suck the brain out of my skull. Maybe that would speed things up.
Lilah: (to Lindsey) Remember when Robert Price let the senior partners down and they made him eat his liver? I don't know what made me think of that.
Gunn: You've done God's work here. If God was a bus boy, he'd look just like you, Jesus.
Kate: Never a dull moment with you around, is there.
Angel: I have to go.
Kate: Who the hell do you think you are? You are a major witness to a major crime scene. You are not going anywhere.
Angel: You want to try and stop me, Kate?
Kate: I'm glad we are not playing friends anymore. And I'm real sick and tired of your attitude. There is a thing called the law!
Angel: This isn't about the law, this is about a little thing called life. Now I'm sorry about your father. But I didn't kill your father. And I'm sick and tired of you blaming me for everything you can't handle! You want to be enemies? Try me.
Cordelia: Morning. - Want some coffee?
Angel: No, thanks.
Cordelia: How about a doughnut? Chocolate...
Cordelia: Creamy fillings?
Angel: No. I don't want anything. Am I supposed to know what this is about?
Wesley: We - were just discussing how you don't want that many things.
Cordelia: You're cut off. But don't worry, I'm gonna help you with that.
Angel: Oh. Good.
Cordelia: We'll start small. Keep it simple. How would you like a puppy? Right. A Ficus? They're low maintenance... Ant farm?
Holland: The scroll was stolen from our vault.
Vocah: The raising can not be performed without the scroll.
Lilah: We understand that.
Lindsey: It was my mistake. I'll rectify it.
Vocah: You will do nothing. I will retrieve the scroll myself. Who stole it?
Vocah: Angel! I am summoned for the raising - the very thing that was to bring this creature down to us, tear him from the Powers That Be - and he has the scroll?
Lilah: We're not unaware of the irony.
Wesley: It's probably years off, ah, after the coming battles.
Cordelia: My raise?
David: What did I do today? Spun off my digital pager network, made a few more million... Alright several. Big whup. What does that mean?
Cordelia: No more shopping at a Penny Saver?
Wesley: Ah - oops. I may have made a tiny mistake. The word Shanshu that I said meant you were going to die? Actually I think it means that you are going to live.
Cordelia: Okay, as tiny mistakes go, that's not one!
Wesley: Shanshu has roots in so many different languages. The most ancient source is the Proto-Bantu and they consider life and death the same thing, part of a cycle, only a thing that's not alive never dies. It's- it's saying that you get to live until you die. It's saying... it's saying you become human.
Cordelia: That's the prophecy?
Wesley: The vampire with a soul, once he fulfills his destiny, will "Shanshu." "Become human." It's his reward.
Cordelia: Wow. Angel a human.
Angel: That'll be nice.
Cordelia: Wait. What's that thing about him having to fulfill his destiny first?
Wesley: Well, it's saying that it won't happen tomorrow or the next day. He has to survive the coming darkness, the apocalyptic battles, a few plagues, and some, uh, several (not that many) fiends that will be unleashed.
Angel: So don't break out the champagne just yet.
Cordelia: Yeah, break out the champagne, Pinocchio. This is a big deal!
Angel: I guess it is.
Cordelia: Typical. I hook up with the only person in history who ever came to LA to get older.
Wesley: Cordelia it's an ancient prophecy, not a Magic 8-Ball.
Wesley: Here's something.
Angel: What is it?
Wesley: The beast of Amalfif, a razor-toothed, six-eyed harbinger of death. No, wait. That's due to arise in 2003 in Reseda.
Angel: I would have guessed Tarzana.
(after a headache-inducing vision)
Cordelia: Pain... Killer.
Wesley: Painful Killer Demon?
Cordelia: Pain killer!
Lilah: Aren't we going to be late?
Holland: You never want to be on time for a ritual. The chanting, the blood rites, they go on forever.
Cordelia: Angel's going to die?
Angel: Anything else?
Cordelia: He certainly took that well. Is this that opportune time to talk about my raise?
Angel: Don't believe everything you're foretold.
Darla is the last face we see in this Angel season one finale episode, she was the first face we saw in Buffy the Vampire Slayer's season one premiere episode, "Welcome to the Hellmouth".
The name of the demon in this episode is "Vocah" which are the letters in the word "havoc" rearranged.
There have been some references to Season 1 of Buffy. Both Season 1 of Buffy and Angel make a reference to Spider-Man 2. In Buffy, Season 1, when Xander is moping in his room, he is listening to "I Fall To Pieces". And in Angel, Season 1, there is an episode titled "I Fall To Pieces". Also in both shows' first season when Cordelia has a deflated ego, she refers to herself as Buffy.
In the DVD commentary for this episode, Producer David Greenwalt revealed that Angel Investigations was blown up during the episode because the sets were too cramped to film in. The crew opted for a much roomier hotel set in season two. David Greenwalt also admitted that he just likes to blow things up.
The title of this episode literally translates: "To Live and Die in L.A."
Julie Benz is not credited in the opening credits, instead she is credited with "Special Guest Star" in the closing credits in order to keep her "re-introduction" a suprise.
Lilah mentions Wolfram & Hart lawyer Robert Price who betrayeyed the firm and had to eat his own liver, Robert Price is the associate producer/director on Angel.
This episode is the final appearance of both the Angel Investigations office and Angel's house.
Title: To Shanshu In L.A.
Since we eventually learn that "shanshu" means both life and death, the title of this episode would translate to "To Live and Die in L.A." which is also the title of a 1985 film directed by William Friedkin about a cop who's willing to do anything to avenge his partner's death, breaking the law and risking his own life to catch the killer.
Cordelia: (after hearing that Angel may eventually gain his humanity) Yeah, break out the champagne, Pinocchio.
Pinocchio was a story about a wooden puppet brought to life who longed to become a real live boy. Eventually his wish becomes true. Walt Disney made an animated feature from this tale.
