Did You Know?


At the OB-GYN, Wesley and Cordelia are pretending to be Mr. and Mrs. Pangborn. This appears to be an homage to science fiction writer Edgar Pangborn (1909-1976), who is famous for his classic novelette "Angel's egg" (1951). (See also Angel's Egg (1985).) See more »


Possessed and pregnant, Cordelia drinks blood from Angel's pitcher and it runs down her front, then she wipes the blood from her mouth with her sleeve. From the point that she knocks Wesley out with the book to the end of the episode, the blood is missing from her clothes, though she doesn't ever change. See more »


Angel: Hey, y'know, I-I-I'm startin' to get the big picture here. You guys proxy for Big Daddy Demon. He imbues you with his life force or whatever it is you're implanting in these women.
Jason: He has trouble finding his own dates. We just... help him out a little, that's all.
Wilson Christopher: Shut up, Jason.
Angel: And you get what in return, huh? Fame, money, success? That's it, isn't it? How else would losers like you get ahead?
Angel: I mean, you'd *have* to become procreative surrogates for a vile demonic entity.
Jason: [smirking]

Gee, Wesley, I'd love to, but unlike you, I'm not in my 80's quite yet

Gee, Wesley, I'd love to, but unlike you, I'm not in my 80's quite yet

  • Even though it's one, if not the silliest episode of the entire

series. I think it's also very entertaining and explores the 'Cordelia' character better and makes the current gang get a little closer which is for me, enough to like this episode a lot. The episode has 'Cordelia' getting impregnated with demon sperm by having sex with a dude who worships a huge funny-looking demon. Now 'Cordy' has seven demon babies and begins to act pretty crazy herself, I love the hormones she gets and of course when she drinks 'Angel's pigs blood. The episode was so cheesy and clichéd it made you think that was the whole point, my favorite scene was in the doctor's office with 'Cordy's hormones, I mean, wouldn't you be grouchy if you had seven demon babies growing in you? I also loved the scene with all those evil pregnant woman, Charisma Carpenter gave a very entertaining performance this entire episode. The ending was also great with 'Cordelia' saying what she learned from all of this and 'Wesley' getting all teared up. Once again I say that it's one of the cheesiest if not, the most cheesiest episode of the show but it's done in the most entertaining way possible. I loved how much 'Angel' cared for 'Cordy'. CORDELIA: He is so sweet. He says that all I have to do is let him impregnate me with his demon master's seed, and I've got the part... Guys, I appreciate all the concern, but I'm okay. I mean, it was an ordeal, but I got through it, and I'm a lot stronger than those loser demon surrogates thought. ANGEL: I'm starting to learn that. CORDELIA: I learned something, too. I learned, uhm, men are evil? Oh, wait, I knew that. I learned that LA is full of self-serving phonies. No, had that one down, too. Uh... sex is bad? ANGEL: We all knew that. (8.0 out of 10)
