Tropes used in Angel/Recap/S04/E05 Supersymmetry include:

Gunn: What do you mean, die?
Fred: I don't know yet. But it's gonna be about pain. (opens weapons cabinet, selects a long-handled weapon with a curved blade at the top) The halberd could work. Acting like I'm all addle-brained talking about other dimensions. (mocking) Pylea? Never heard of it. (angry) Right. How 'bout a flail-whipping? Would that take a nice long time?

Angel: Hours, if you do it right. Not that you should do it at all. (takes whip from her) Ever.

Gunn: Girl kept me up all night. She is un-stoppable.
Angel: More than I need to know.

Fred: (excited) Did Charles tell you? (about her physics article getting published)

Angel: He-he didn't describe it...

Gunn: Fred, no! If you kill him, I'm gonna lose you.

"You know, Angel, coming from you, idle threats are so... well, idle."

  • Innocent Cohabitation: When Connor comes to pick up Cordy's stuff, Angel hands him her fluffy slippers, saying her feet get cold. Connor says he knows as Cordelia is always pinching the covers. Angel is not happy over what this implies.
  • It's Personal
  • Laser-Guided Karma / Self-Disposing Villain: Angel assumes Seidel opened a portal to a hell dimension and fell in himself. Actually Fred opened the portal and Gunn threw him in.
  • Neck Snap / Mercy Kill: Gunn breaks Seidel's neck before throwing him into the hell dimension.
  • Nerd Glasses: Laurie, Seidel's assistant.
  • New Powers as the Plot Demands: Angel is able to use his Photographic Memory to mentally reconstruct a crime scene around them and identify a suspect. While in earlier episodes he had demonstrated an impressive memory and other exceptional mental talents (he speaks several languages and can recreate faces almost perfectly), that particular ability had not been shown before.

Gunn: How come you never pulled out this parlor trick before?
Angel: It's not an automatic reflex. It just kicked in when I saw Lilah.

Wes: I'd ask to tag along--
Fred: But you know what the answer would be.

Gunn: Well, get on it, 'cause when my girl's not happy-- [cut to him Perp Sweating a witness] I'M NOT HAPPY!

    • And later...

Gunn: We gotta get to him before Fred changes her mind. 'Cause vengeance, it can get ugly.
Cut to Wesley: Vengeance. Sounds good.

Fred: "You know what they say about payback? Well, I'm the bitch."
