Tropes used in Angel/Recap/S03/E20 A New World include:

Groo: "Pylean warriors are trained for such endurance. I once happened upon a herd of Bur-beasts and As You Know, engorged Bur-beasts will couple with Anything That Moves. I was forced to stand perfectly still for eleven days and nights."
Cordy: "So, you were never..."
Groo: "No. That honor was yours, Princess."

  • Arm Cannon: Connor's three-chambered, wrist-mounted stake-launcher.
  • Blade Below the Shoulder
  • Bullet Time: More like 'Flying Stake and Hurled Axe Time'.
  • Cliff Hanger: Holtz came through the rift while Groo and Cordy were unconscious.
  • Colossus Climb: Connor jumps onto the back of a moving bus and climbs onto the roof.
  • Conspicuous CGI: Connor jumping on a bus and fighting with Team Angel.
  • Damsel in Distress: Connor saves teenage junkie Sunny from being beaten by drug dealer Tyke.
  • Distracted By The Smoochies: Groo has been standing motionless for hours, ready to cleave anyone or anything that comes through the rift, when Cordy distracts him with a kiss, whereupon a blast of lightning knocks them unconscious.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: Father trying to reconnect with his child who'd been put up for adoption as a baby.
  • Ear Ache: Connor slices off Tyke's ear as a trophy, "So he won't forget me." Tyke doesn't -- he comes after Connor seeking vengeance.
  • Failed Attempt At Drama: Cordelia tries to use her newly-revealed powers to close the rift. After holding her hands skyward and commanding the rift to close in a loud voice...nothing happens.
  • Game Face: Connor insists Angel show him the face he used when killing Holtz's family.
  • Give Me a Sword: Cordy throws Angel a sword so he can fight Connor.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Groo re Angel.
  • I Hate You, Vampire Dad: Though not for the usual reasons; Holtz has indoctrinated Connor into believing that Angel is an evil monster.
  • Hell-Bent for Leather: Connor steals Tyke's jacket after knocking him out -- he'd know from first-hand experience just how much work it is to tan leather.
  • Mugging the Monster
  • No Nudity Taboo: Connor casually undressing in front of Sunny.
  • Not So Different: Wesley curtly turns down Lilah's offer of a job. She hands Wes an antique edition of Dante's Inferno, pointing out that the innermost circle of Hell - in the centre mouth of the Devil himself - is Judas Iscariot.

Lilah: "The worst spot in Hell is reserved for those who betray. So, don't pretend you're too good to work for us."


Groo: "I'm sure Angel has regaled you with his many exploits."
Cordy: "Oh, he's tried alright. But I get so bored with all that 'days of yore' crap. (Groo glances at her) Ah, I mean...they're nothing like your thrilling tales of adventure!"


Lorne: "It's been like that all day! One of the nasty side effects of specializing in dimensional magic. What I wouldn't do for a lasso and some crazy glue."


Gunn: "Couple of weeks ago he was wearing diapers. Now he's a teenager?"
Cordy: "Tell me we don't live in a soap opera."


Wes: "I find you being here extremely funny."
Lilah: "And how is that?"
Wes: "Because you're going to offer me a job."

  • Walk in Chime In: Angel says he hopes Connor will one day accept the demon part of him.

Connor: "You'd have to kill me first."
Tyke: (from the door) "Well, that's the plan."
