Man: Hello.
Wesley Wyndam-Pryce: Didn't hear you come in. How can I help you?
Man: Where is he?
Wesley Wyndam-Pryce: Angel? He is rather out at the moment. Is there something I can do for you? I'm his associate.
Man: Yeah, you can tell me where the boss is. It's kind of urgent.
Wesley Wyndam-Pryce: We specialize in urgent. Life and death is it?
Man: It could get rough. I need someone with his special abilities.
Wesley Wyndam-Pryce: I understand perfectly. Why don't you fill me in, and as soon as we find...

Wes grows up
10 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As great as Doyle was, this episode showed why Wesley was better in the area of character development. While a half-demon with visions was great, personality wise, he was pretty much set in stone. Bringing in someone with Wesley's quirks allowed for much more flexibility and creativity in shaping his persona as the series went on. Guise Will Be Guise helped accelerate the changing of Wesley in one direction, and that's in his more manly persona. While we still saw some of his classic goofiness at the onset of pretending to be Angel, he adapted very quickly. Look no further than when he beat up the hooded men at Virginia's bedroom. The old Wes would've either ran or passed out. And it ends up leading to him getting laid. Even after Virginia gets mad at Wesley after finding out he lied about being Angel, he still goes back to help her when he realizes the peril she's in. The way he barges in and says "Release her or die" and the way he fights showed how even just pretending to be Angel instilled in him a sense of manliness and bravery. Then when Virginia asks "Why did you come back?", his answer of "I said I'd protect you" shows how even though the situation was very dangerous, he was going to live up to his word.
