Special Sub-Topic: "Soulless"
|In the opening segment, we see Connor grab a small stack of newspapers to use as a weapon. What headline do we see written in bold black print just before he snatches them up?|
Crime Wave Shuts Down City. Connor is battling a gang of vamps solo, as per usual. He hits them with the "Los Angeles Chronicle" newspapers, fists, feet, and even some kind of gas from a big yellow tank.
|Finish this quote from Connor during the first battle of this episode: "Let me guess, ________________?"|
out of towners. Connor: "Let me guess, out of towners?" The battle rages on and his quips continue. He says, "Welcome to L.A.", as he dusts the final vamp, and then finishes with "Tourists." and a look of disgust. Then he turns his head to look to his right and sees a whole new gang coming his way.
|Which member of Angel's team hands his soul to Wesley to put into the hotel safe?|
Cordelia. Angel's soul was stored in a glass decanter (bottle), and Angelus in a steel cage in the basement. Cordy handed over the soul to Wesley to store in the safe as Fred warned, "Don't drop it..".
|What did Wesley tell the group that Angelus' only focus would be?|
getting free. Wesley said that getting free would be his only focus, so that he could slaughter them all. Cordy: "We're Angel's only link to humanity. Angelus will hate us for that. He'll wanna make us suffer."
|Each person that joined Angelus in the basement carried a weapon with them.|
f. Wesley and Gunn did carry a crossbow. Fred carried blood. Connor came in empty handed, but he has very aggressive hand to hand combat abilities. Or, sometimes, even hand to feet combat abilities! Cordy also came down to visit Angelus without a weapon. Cordy is the only one of them that had ever met Angelus before, so she knew his game.
|"Taking out Angel's soul..putting it in a jar. Hope we know what we're doin'" Who said it?|
Gunn. Ever the skeptic, Gunn spoke up with these words after Cordy mutters, "I can't believe...it's done." J. August Richards, who plays Gunn, has also had small roles on "The Cosby Show", "Family Matters", "JAG", "Sliders", and "Moesha".
|In the preceding episode, "Awakening", a Shaman removes Angel's soul. In order to do this he had to help Angel conjure up a fantasy that would allow him to achieve a moment of pure happiness. In this next episode, "Soulless" with which movie did Angelus compare Angel's fantasy?|
Raiders of the Lost Ark. Angelus: "What's the deal with Angel and the 'Raiders of the Lost Ark'?"
Wesley: "The movie?"
Angelus: "The perfect day fantasy he came up with. Caves, booby traps... the requisite phallic sword."
|Angelus used Faith to torment Wesley.|
t. Angelus: "Or here's an oldie, but a goody...Faith. Good job being her Watcher. She turned out to be a peach."
Wesley: "And you managed to get your soul back, not once, but twice. Saving the world several times in the process. Nobody's perfect." Faith, the third slayer in the "Buffy" and "Angel" history, killed a human in season 3 of "BTVS". She gave herself over to authorities over a year later in season one of "Angel".
|Whose words are these?
"If you go into the woods tonight... you won't believe your eyes."|
Angelus. "If you go into the woods tonight... you won't believe your eyes. If you go into the woods tonight, you're in for a big surprise." These are Angelus' first words of the episode. He is sort of singing them in his cell before Wesley joins him in the basement. The reason "Angel" would not be a correct answer to this question is because it was Angelus who spoke these words. Wesley locked Angel's soul in the safe, turned to the group, and said "Angel is gone." Therefore, Angel can never be a correct answer for this question.
|This episode was directed by David Boreanaz.|
f. Sean Astin was the director on this one. Sean has a large body of work. He starred in "The Goonies", "Encino Man", "Rudy", and "The Lord of The Rings" trilogy as Samwise 'Sam' Gamgee. He is the son of John Astin (Gomez Addams in the original "Addams Family" series) and Patty Duke (Patty Lane/Cathy Lane in "The Patty Duke Show").
|When Angelus demanded blood it was Gunn and Fred who brought it down to him. Which characters did Angelus refer to them as when they descended the stairs into the basement?|
Othello and Desdemona. Angelus: "Hello and Desdemona. Oh wait, Desdemona wasn't in love with the other guy. So much for stand by your man." I am not sure why Angelus just called Gunn 'Hello' and not 'Othello', but I do know he was twisting the knife in Gunn referring to Fred's feelings for Wesley (the other man).
|Angelus insinuates that he "loves" himself when he hears Gunn and Fred making love.|
t. Angelus: "Ah Fred. You look all fresh and sweet, but I hear you at night. In your room...with Gunn. The things you say. I'm lying there, listening... hands under the cover. I can't help myself. It's so... griping."
Gunn: "This coming from a guy who can't get any...ever."
Fred: "You're a pig."
We all know Angel can never make love, because that one true moment of happiness strips away his soul, leaving Angelus behind to wreak havoc on the world. As Fred attempts to get Angelus the blood, he turns it against her and grabs her around the throat. As he is holding her tight against the bars he says, "Might get some now."
Gunn drops the crossbow and rushes to her, but it is Wesley who comes in and uses a tranquilizer dart on Angelus to end the attack. He advises that no one EVER drop their weapon in Angelus' presence.
|Why did Connor think everyone was still "looking" at him so much?|
because he was connected to the beast. Connor did think it was because everyone believed he was the one connected to the beast. Cordy let him know that the real reason was because they had all (except Lorne and Angelus) just found out about their lovemaking in the "Rain of Fire" episode. She told him that Angelus had broadcast the news of their night together.
|What did Gunn interrupt between Fred and Wesley?|
a moment of passion. Fred and Wes were discussing what Angelus had said earlier about Wes's feelings for Fred. She was telling him not to worry about it.
Fred: "Which is very sweet. There's nothing wrong with it,"
Wes: "Yes there is." Then Wes walks over and begins kissing her. She responds to him very passionately. Gunn walks in and asks who is watching the monitor and senses the tension. They argue about the situation and Gunn warns Wes to leave Fred alone. Meanwhile, Angelus can hear all of it.
Angelus laughs to himself: "That was fast."
|During the fist fight between Wes and Gunn Connor visits Angelus in the basement. What did Angelus notice about Connor?|
He was wearing Angel's shirt. Angelus: "Is that my shirt?"
Connor: "Not anymore."
Angelus: "Looks good on you."
Connor: "So did Cordy."
Angelus: "She looks good on everyone."
|In this episode Connor was the first person to let Angelus know he might kill kim.|
F. Connor was the third person to inform Angelus of this. Wesley and Gunn had already delivered the news. Angelus turned it around on him, of course. He told Connor that with his track record he'd be staking himself by the end of the day. Connor's mother, Darla, had to stake herself in order to allow Connor to be born. Angelus' comments did not seem to faze Connor, because his response was "Fine by me." Angelus' remarks about Connor's caregiver, Holtz, did upset him though.
|Finish this quote: "Doin' your mom and tryin' to kill your dad. There should be a _____."|
play. Angelus asked Connor if it freaked him out that Cordy used to change his diapers. Then he commented on the fact that the first women Connor ever made love to was also the closest thing he'd ever had as a mother.
|Who did Connor say was his real father?|
Angelus. Connor told Angelus that Angel warned him that Angelus would try to hurt him. He said that Angel told him to remember that Angelus was not his real father. Connor said that the truth was that Angel was something Angelus was forced to wear. Even though Angel believed Connor knew that he was his real father, Connor really felt that it was Angelus after all.
|What kind of car was Angelus interested in having in exchange for information on the beast?|
Mustang. Angelus: "I hear the new Mustang is nice."
Cordy: "Something better."
Angelus: "What's a better ride than a Mustang?"
|"Look in my eyes." Who said it?|
Cordelia. When Cordy offered herself up to Angelus in exchange for information he did not believe her. So, she told him to look into her eyes. She said that Angel knew her and that he would know she was not lying.
|When Angelus began to tell Wes the story of his connection to the beast, he mentioned the year they met. What was it?|
1789. Wes: "The year?"
Wes: "So, you were in Prussia."
Angelus: "You have been doing your homework."
|Angelus was taking a short cut on his way where?|
Vienna. He was taking a short cut to Vienna when he ran into a massacre. He goes on to inform Wes that the beast had arranged it to impress him.
Angelus: "Bodies, bodies, everywhere, and not a drop to drink."
|What city did Gunn find out that the Priestesses currently in?|
Pacoima. Cordy, Connor, and Wesley travel to Pacoima to find them, but when they got there the entire family had been murdered.
|What kind of snack food did Lorne call Gunn just before Cordy, Wes, and Connor returned from their search for The Priestesses?|
Moon Pie. Lorne always has a cute nickname for someone. Andy Hallett plays Lorne "The Host". Joss Whedon, the creator of "Angel", created the role of Lorne for Andy. He saw him singing once and decided on creating The Host. Lorne is able to read people's minds when they sing.
|What horrible discovery did Wesley find at the end of the episode?|
The soul was no longer in the safe. As Wesley is opening the safe, Cordy is in the basement telling Angelus that their deal was off. He had not provided information that helped destroy the beast, so he could not have her. Angelus: "You don't think I am just gonna let this go?" They exchange a bit more tit for tat dialog before Cordy returns upstairs to find out that Angel's soul is gone. I suspect Connor!
