In flashback, an attorney gives Number 5 a Wolfram & Hart business card. If you look closely, on the bottom left hand side of the card, you can see the name of the lawyer, "Holland Manners, Associate Attorney." Holland Manners appears in season 1 of Angel (decades after the events in this flashback) as a senior attorney at Wolfram & Hart. See more »


The business card that the Wolfram & Hart lawyer hands to Numero Cinco has a spelling mistake. It reads "Wolfram & Hart - Attorney's at Law". See more »


Charles Gunn: Still not sure why Blondie Ghost tagged along.
Spike: Not much choice really, is there? Can't drink, smoke, diddle my willy. Doesn't leave much to do other than watch you blokes stumble around playin' Agatha Christie.
Wesley Wyndam-Pryce: Yeah, remind me again how you ended up in the front seat.
Spike: Called shotgun, mate.
Wesley Wyndam-Pryce: Oh. I thought we were doing a weapons check.
Charles Gunn: Nothin' wrong with that. We may need these bad boys if we're goin' up against some Mexican Day of the Dead heart-suckin' monster.

Fans of El Santo will want to check out this episode: it's wistfully nostalgic, with some of the most moving music I've ever heard; storywise, it's good enough to make the transition to the Big Screen (without the vampire). Masked wrestlers South of the Border have been grappling with everything from vampires to werewolves to killer robots (and everything in between) for decades. El Santo led the way, with rival masked men like Blue Demon and Mil Mascaras (among many, many others) coming along to help (or, in some cases, to even hinder) our hero. Production values varied over the years, but the movies were always fun to watch when I was a kid. (During some of the scarier scenes, I'd be watching from between fingers covering my eyes.) This episode brought back fond memories. Gracias, amigos.
