The Long: After a ''Previously on Angel'' segment (see Continuity #1) we open on Cordelia, Wesley and Gunn walking out of the Hyperion, just fired, carrying their things. Cordelia has trouble dealing with it, Wesley tries to be calm, as Gunn seems fine with it. Inside the hotel Angel burns the pictures he drew of Darla in the furnace (Listen to the teaser here.)
Madonna is a singer and actress Madonna Louise Veronica Ciccone, born in Michigan in 1968. Also mentioned by Cordelia in Expecting.
Merl: ''All right, all right, all right! I heard about your girls... Godzilla, Darsilla, whatever.''
Godzilla is of course the giant reptile who first appeared in the 1954 Japanese horror film Gojira. In 1956 this film was edited and released in the U.S. as Godzilla, King Of The Monsters. He later appeared in dozens of sequels, remakes, cartoons and comics. I wrote a conversion of Godzilla for Champions 4th edition role playing game at http://mathew.fcpages.com/csgodzilla.html. Godzilla was also referenced in Reptile Boy by Xander.
Lilah: ''...but not everybody ends up in a dog food processing plant in San Pedro!''
San Pedro, California has it's own web site at http://www.sanpedro.com/.
Cordelia: ''Vampires, Sloth demons, you know what's really really evil? Tequila.''
Tequila is a Mexican liquor made from fermented juices of an Agave plant.
Lilah: ''Killed about a dozen demons, lite up Darla and Drusilla like a Christmas tree.''
A Christmas tree is an evergreen or artificial tree decorated, as with lights and ornaments, during the Christmas season.
Cordelia: ''Previously on Angel.'' Judgement - The host of Caritas asks Angel to sing. Wesley explains how the host reads people's souls. Darla - Angel draws pictures of Darla. The Trial - Angel promises to stay with Darla. Drusilla breaks in and drains Darla. Reunion - Darla and Drusilla break into Holland's party. Lilah and Holland beg for Angel to help. Angel doesn't care and the vamps feast. The crew tell Angel he's getting dark and they are fired.
Wesley: ''Your father tired to sacrifice you to the goddess Yeska.'' Guise Will Be Guise - Wesley met Virginia when he pretended to be Angel and was hired as her bodyguard. He then saved her from her own father when he tried to sacrifice her to a demon for power.
Hunt: ''Mr. McDonald, your conduct with this firm had proved spotty at best. You've stolen files, co-operated with our enemy, disobeyed orders time and again.'' Blind Date - Lindsey helped Angel steal files from the Wolfram & Hart vaults in order to learn the target of the assassin Vanessa Brewer. He then used the files to keep Wolfram & Hart from going after him.
Hunt: ''Mrs. Morgan, when you drove away the telekinetic Bethany Chaulk, you lost for us a powerful potential assassin.'' Untouched - Lilah attempted to recruit Bethany, but Angel was able to show her Wolfram & Hart were evil and she left them.
Anonymous vampire: In the sewer, beheaded with a sword by Angel.
Anonymous demon: In an abandoned building, gouged in the skull with some debris by Gunn.
Note: Between the end of the last episode and the start of this one about a dozen Wolfram & Hart employees including Holland Manners are killed by Darla and Drusilla. Angel kills about a dozen the perspective demon recruits of Darla and Drusilla off camera. It is unsure if the demon Drusilla pulled the ears off or the bar keeper she poked they eyes out of actually died.
