Quotes

Spike: [Very cheery] Hey, is this a great party or what?
Winifred 'Fred' Burkle: OK, something is definitely wrong with this picture.
Spike: [Still eerily cheery] This might be the greatest song ever written!
[dances, moving his head, singing along]
Wesley Wyndam-Pryce: Yes. We appear to be under the effect of something, a spell.
Gunn: Spike, how long have you been, you know... this?
Spike: It's great, isn't it? I don't know. Happened a bit after I talked with Angel and Lorne. Yeah. Lorne told me to think positively.

"well he was better than last year's"
20 August 2010 | by (Valhalla) – See all my reviews

Is This at all Emmy Material? No. Will it be specifically remembered in 15 years? No Is It the Funniest Episode in The Buffyverse? Yes.

Lorne loses his sleep so not only is he reading the future he's writing them. He tells Gunn to stake his territory, he tells Wesley and Fred to get wasted and he tells Angel to have sex with Eve.

Honestly this is the funniest episode Of Angel Ever I loved it all of it I knew I saw everything when a version of Lorne who resembles The Hulk wrecks the place. Think This Is Funnier Than Angel Being Turned Into A Puppet? Yes it is it is 10 times funnier and weirder. I better watch this again it does everything that a funny Angel Episode could offer and more.
