Trivia

The movie/TV show that Lorne is pitching, on his cell phone, at the very beginning, sounds very close to Joss Whedon's original idea for his TV show, "Firefly". See more »

Quotes

Eve: Simply put, this is a morale thing.
Harmony: Good luck. Morale around here stinks.
Angel: What?
Harmony: Uh-huh. Everybody out there thinks you suck. Well, come on, boss. They're all out there sweating through their matsudas, worried if you're gonna axe them or, you know, axe them.
Angel: OK, look, hey! I haven't... OK, I may have... killed... maybe a couple of them.
Lorne: And clients... And potential clients.

"well he was better than last year's"
20 August 2010 | by WakenPayneSee 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.
