Winifred "Fred" Burkle
At 6:20 Angel puts out his hand to keep the elevator door open. Then when the shot changes, he puts his hand up again.
As of this episode, Angel is the last surviving member of the original Angel Investigations.
Cordelia is seen wearing something around her left wrist through out the entire episode (a bandage, long sleeve and a leather wristband). This is due to a tattoo the actress got that Cordelia did not have before going into a coma at the end of season 4.
The game Spike is playing on his Xbox is implied, by the sound effects and his comments, to be Donkey Kong (or more likely an emulation of it since the game was never officially released for the Xbox).
Fred: Who is Lindsey?
Cordelia: A lawyer. Wolfram & Hart's former golden boy, till he ran off to go find himself.
Angel: Yeah, he should've stayed lost. Harmony, guard Eve. She moves, eat her.
Harmony: Really? Thanks!
Fred: Angel, you're not going down there alone.
Angel: The fail-safe's meant for me. I'm not gonna risk anybody I care about.
Spike: I'll go.
Angel: Okay. (to Fred and Cordelia) Be ready to evacuate. If this thing gets past me, get the hell out of the building.
Cordelia: Past us.
Angel: No, no. Cordy...
Cordelia: Yeah, save it, Angel. (Walks past him and grabs a katana from his desk) You can order me around all you want, but I know my rights. (Unsheathes the sword) And I want to see a lawyer.
Eve: Who's your friend, Angel?
Cordelia: I'm Cordelia Chase.
Eve: Oh. My name is...
Cordelia: I didn't ask.
Lindsey: You know, all my carefully laid out plans, my designs... when you get right down to it, this is pretty sweet, too, huh? Reason enough for me to come back. You, me, fight to the death. (points his sword at Angel) Yours.
Harmony: I can't believe you're here!
Cordelia: Likewise. Especially since the last time I saw you, you tried to kill me.
Angel: Um, Harmony, she's actually, she... she's my secretary.
Cordelia: Oh. Well, things just keep getting better and better.
Harmony: I know! You and me together again. So, how was the coma?
Cordelia: (to Spike) Heard you weren't evil anymore, which kinda makes the hair silly. (Spike Vamps Out) Uh, or nice.
Cordelia: Oh, my God. Gunn? You have hair.
Gunn: Oh. Heh! Yeah. What'd you think, I was prematurely bald? (silence) I wasn't.
Cordelia: (to Angel referring to her roommate) That chick's in rough shape. You'd think they'd give Miss One-foot-in-the-grave a private room. Which brings me to-- Hey! Couldn't you stick me someplace that smells a little less like ammonia-soaked death?
Cordelia: (to Angel) You sold your soul to the Devil!
Angel: I did not!
(Izzy, a Devil look-alike, walks by)
Izzy: (to Angel) Are we still on for racquetball tomorrow?
Spike: (to zombies) Why so down? We're all dead men here.
Cordelia: Doyle pissed me off so righteously going out like that. But he knew. He knew what he had to do, didn't compromise. Gave his last breath to make sure you'd keep fighting. I get that now.
Angel: The thing that really pisses me off is this guy seems to be going by the name of Doyle.
Eve: Doesn't ring a bell.
Cordelia: Well it does to me! It rings a big frickin' gong! And I wanna know who has the nerve to be using that name.
Angel: All those tattoos, all those new tricks you've learned... just don't matter. Doesn't matter what you try. Doesn't matter where I am or how badass you think you've become. 'Cause you know what? I'm Angel. I beat the bad guys.
Angel: I remember when we first met. You put on a show. Told how I couldn't touch your client.
Lindsey: Then you pushed him out of a window.
Cordelia: (turns to face Angel) I can't stay. This isn't me anymore. You can say good-bye to the gang for me, explain everything once you understand.
Angel: That's gonna be never. (walks toward her) I need you here.
Cordelia: (with tears in her eyes) Don't make it hard, Angel. I'm just on a different road...and this is my off-ramp. The Powers That Be owed me one, and I didn't waste it. I got my guy back on track.
Angel: Cordy, there's just—
Cordelia: (touches his face) We take what we can get, champ, and we do our best with it. I'll be seeing you. (smiles through her tears, turns to walk out of the office, stops, turns around, walks quickly up to Angel) Oh, what the hell. One for the road?
(kisses Angel, but moments later, the telephone rings)
Angel: You know, um...I don't...I don't need to get that.
Cordelia: (tenderly straightens his tie) That you have to get. (Angel walks toward the phone) Oh...and you're welcome.
Eve: You really think you have any control over my comings and goings? Well...you did have a way with my comings at the halloween party.
Cordelia: Oh, so you two are groin buddies? And I thought Darla was rock bottom.
Cordy: I naturally assumed you'd be lost without me, but this?
Angel: I am lost without you.
Cordy: You just forgot who you are.
Angel: Remind me.
Cordy: (about Lindsey's disappearing tattoos) Sweetie, your epidermis is showing.
Codelia: Oh...and you're welcome.
Angel: (answers the phone) Hello. Yes, I know. She's...but that's impossible. She's standing right... (turns to look for Cordelia, but she's not there, he becomes visibly upset) I'm sorry. Yeah. (choking up) When did she die? Did she, um... she never did wake up? I see. (hangs up, looks out to where Cordelia was standing moments earlier) Thank you.
Cordelia: Okay, this is getting us nowhere. Angel, torture her.
Angel: (confused) What?
Eve: (panicked) What?
Cordelia: You heard me. Building clearing out means we don't have a lot of time. Have at it.
Angel: I can't just... torture her.
Fred: He's right, Cordy. If we sink to their level-
(From out of nowhere, Harmony tackles Eve, knocking her into Angel's desk with a primal grunt.)
Harmony: (stands up, grabbing Eve by the neck)
(to Angel) Is this okay? I mean, I am evil, technically. I don't mind torturing her for the team.
Angel: Yeah. Okay.
Cordelia: And you called this guy the big hero?
Spike: (to Angel) You called me a hero?
Angel: I didn't know you were eating people.
Angel: He's a Wolfram & Hart client. Our client. Oh, and he's evil. What are the odds?
Eve: You weren't home upstairs. Didn't think you'd mind me using your private elevator.
Angel: Eve, I mind you breathing. Get out.
Lorne: Well, I'm thinking sea breeze, compadres. I gave up a lot of blood for this gig.
Harmony: And I didn't get any. I kept begging Eve to run, but...
Lorne: (to Cordelia) Hey, listen, crumbcake, when you're ready to splash back into that acting pool, just say the word. I'll have you lunching with Colin Farrell like that.
Cordelia: Who's Colin Farrell?
Angel: Harmony, she's talking.
Harmony: She is? Already? That sucks!
Lindsey: Redemption? Isn't that your whole deal?
Angel: People don't change.
(He throws a punch at Lindsey, who catches it and throws Angel across the room. Angel looks back at Lindsey in amazement.)
Lindsey: I did.
Spike: She's evil, you gormless tit!
Cordelia: Excuse me? Who bit whom?
Angel: Did you call me a tit?
Cordelia: I thought he had a soul.
Spike: I thought she didn't.
Cordelia: I do.
Spike: So do I.
Cordelia: Well, clearly mine's better.
Fred: Oh God.
Wesley: I think God is out at the moment.
Angel: Harmony, guard Eve. If she moves, eat her.
Harmony: Really? Thanks!
Lorne: Why can't it ever call for unclean urine? I've got plenty of unclean urine. (sees knife) Look -- I think I'm making some right now.
Cordelia: Spike's a hero and you're CEO of hell incorporated. What freakin' bizzaro world did I wake up in?
Angel: (to Eve) Can we have a word with you Eve?
Eve: Now really isn't a good time.
(Cordelia grabs Eve by the ear)
Cordelia: Let's go, Lilah junior.
Sarah Michelle Gellar was asked to guest star in this episode, but declined to appear for personal reasons.
The staff asked Manolo Blahnik for permission to use their company name onscreen. The company then provided footwear for the episode and insisted that characters wear the products even if the shoes were not shown on camera.
With her appearance in this episode, Charisma Carpenter became the only female actor to appear in eight consecutive seasons of the Buffy/Angel verse -- the first three on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and the last five on Angel [Sarah Michelle Gellar appeared in a total of 8 seasons (seven on BTVS and season 1 of Angel) and Alyson Hannigan in 9 (7 on BTVS and seasons 2 & 4 of Angel), but the seasons were concurrent]. She is also the only female actor to appear on either show in each calender year from 1997-2004, the timespan covering the premiere of Buffy to the finale of Angel.
The show was cancelled only 9 days after this episode aired.
Steven DeKnight helped David Fury write a large chunk of the big fight between Lindsey and Angel.
Joss wrote the final scene between Cordelia and Angel, and both David and Charisma were both really crying during several takes.
As the 100th episode, Joss wanted as many of the original Angel cast in it as possible, as it includes Angel (obviously), Cordelia (awake from her coma), Doyle (in the video he made in "Hero") and Lindsey (back for a confrontation with Angel).
This marks the final appearance of Charisma Carpenter as Cordelia Chase in the series. She appeared in 54 episodes of Buffy The Vampire Slayer and 86 in Angel, making the total of 140 episodes. Although she is credited in 56 episodes of Buffy, she didn't appear in 2 episodes of the first season. She didn't appear in 3 "credited" episodes of Angel's third season , "Loyalty", "Sleep Tight" and "Forgiving".
Apparently the Senior Partners created a giant monster and locked it in the basement designed as a plan B in case Angel gets out of hand. We didn't get to see what the thing looks like this episode, and it is possible that we never will since the show ended without mentioning it again.
The video with Doyle is seen again in this episode, a nod to the late Glenn Quinn and to Doyle's role on the series. The tape was the last scene in "Hero" (1x09), the episode in which Doyle sacrificed his life to save Angel and several other half-demons.
Spike: Stupid Barrel-throwing Monkey!
The "Barrel-throwing monkey" was the first appearance of Donkey Kong and Mario (then Jumpman) of the Mario Bros., in the game "Donkey Kong." First created in 1981, when an unknown Japanese artist (the now world famous Shigeru Miyamoto) created a game based on a gorilla, a carpenter, a kidnapped blonde, and of course lots of barrels. It should also be noted that Donkey Kong is a game made by Nintendo while the Xbox is made by Microsoft, a rival company of Nintendo (at least at the time of this episode). Thus it can be concluded that Spike's version is an illegal emulation, which would be very much his style. Another note to point at is that Rare, the development company who made the games in the Donkey Kong Country series, was bought by Microsoft just a while before this episode. Spike playing Donkey Kong on an Xbox could in some vague way reference this, though it is probably coincidental.
Cordelia: What Bizarro-world did I wake up in?
Bizarro was an imperfect duplicate of Superman who's logic was slightly off-center. With a Bizarro-duplicate of Lois Lane, he went off into space and created a cubic Bizarro-world (as opposed to spheroid) which he populated with duplicates of himself and Bizarro-Lois. The Bizarro-society of this planet did everything off-center, such as celebrating Halloween by wearing masks of normal people as opposed to monsters, dusting the furniture by placing dust on the furniture, etc.
