Tropes used in Angel/Recap/S01/E13 She include:
  • Aborted Arc: Jhiera was meant to be a recurring character, but we don't see her again.
  • Attention Deficit Ooh Shiny: Wes distracted by a rare Nancy Petticoat rose.
  • Badass Princess: Jhiera, daughter of the King of Oden Tal.
  • Beethoven Was an Alien Spy: When the art gallery security guards are searching for him, Angel averts suspicion by briefly pausing to lecture on a painting of the French poet Baudelaire, suggesting that Baudelaire's poem "The Vampire" was based on an encounter with a real vampire (possibly Angel himself, as he tells his audience that Baudelaire was actually "a little taller and a lot drunker" than he appears here).
  • Can You Hear Me Now?: Angel is trying to talk to Cordy on the new Cell Phone she got for him; first the battery is running low, then the reception is bad so he keeps misunderstanding her Buffy-Speak. Eventually he loses patience and tosses it in the back seat.

"You know, these things were definitely cooked up by a bored warlock."

  • Corpsing: The episode took far longer to shoot than usual since the cast kept breaking up in laughter. The set had to be shut down for an hour and a half because David Boreanaz (Angel) and Alex Denisoff (Wesley) couldn't stop laughing. It got to the point where David and Alex resolved not to look at each other to avoid cracking up. But as Joss Whedon pointed out on the DVD commentary for the episode, there are still points where David can't keep a straight face.
  • Credits Gag: The Wes and Angel dance scenes are played during the credits.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: Ko removal = female circumcision.
  • Eureka Moment

Wesley: (looking at a book) “Aha!”
Cordy: “That better be an ‘Aha!’ of triumph.”

“Wow. Groveling isn’t just a way of life for you, it’s an art.”

“I’m so glad you came. You know how parties are. You’re always worried that no one is going to suck the energy out of the room like a giant black hole of boring despair. But there you where - in the clinch!”
