Tropes used in Angel/Recap/S04/E19 The Magic Bullet include:

Fred: I'm so sorry.
Jasmine: It's OK. I forgive you.
Fred: No, I'm talking to Angel. I hope he can forgive me.
(Fred takes out the revolver and fires it through Jasmine's body into Angel)

[SUBTITLE] I wish I could be in Fred's skull...so I could explode her brain and kill her for rejecting Jasmine.

  • Blatant Lies: The demon claims to be a vegetarian. When Fred points out that he's got sharp teeth, he changes it to fish and vermin. The severed hands hidden in his blanket tell a different story.

Hey, these yours? 'Cause I've never seen 'em before. Why would anyone keep a stash (picks up a hand) of these tasty little--uh, disgusting meaty things like this laying around? (shrugs) OK, so, not a vegetarian. (breaks a finger off the hand, takes a bite of it, offers the hand to Fred) Finger food?

  • Cliff Hanger: Fred and Angel succeed in freeing the other members of the gang from Jasmine's influence, only for Connor to betray them.
  • Conspiracy Theorist: Spoofed when Fred asks the owner of a conspiracy bookstore if he hasn't noticed anything strange about the way everyone is acting. The conspiracy nutter says that the CIA are still listening to the implants in his head, but it doesn't bother him anymore as he's broadcasting Jasmine's love back to them via the mind control satellites.
  • Crap Saccharine World
  • Crazy Cat Lady: "I have 37 cats, and I've just changed all their names to Jasmine."
  • Cut His Heart Out with a Spoon: Fred threatens to chop out the conspiracy nutter's implants.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: Jasmine's 'jihad', and all the love-bomb culty stuff.
  • Enemy Mine: Averted when Fred finds herself hiding in a demon's lair.

Demon: Wow. Amazing. Two beings dissimilar as you and me discovering a shared link against a common foe. Huh. The irony. My feelings for you are changing. (shrugs) I feel warmth. (sighs) Wait. No, I don't. (holds up hands) That's just me wetting myself because you wouldn't let me pee!

  • Eureka Moment: The demon attacks Fred and tears her shoulder, causing her to remember Jasmine's wound in the previous episode.
  • The Evils of Free Will: All of the Fang Gang talk of how they miss Jasmine's love once they are removed from her glamour.
  • Exactly What I Aimed At: Fred breaks Jasmine's spell on Angel by deliberately shooting him with a bullet that first had to pass through Jasmine, since it is exposure to Jasmine's blood that breaks her glamour.
  • Fake-Out Make-Out: Fred hears a group of people approaching and grabs Angel for a passionate snog.

Fred: (whispering) You think they bought it?
Angel: (whispering) I did. I—I mean, I didn't hear anything.
[[[Oh Crap]] moment when they realise it's because the group has stopped to stare at them.]

Evil. Not evil. Evil again. Wish he'd make up his mind.

Connor: (struggling in Angel's grip) I'll kill you!
Angel: It'll pass.
Lorne: Right, 'cause Lord knows he's never tried that before.

Fred: Anything for a fan. Who should I sign it to? (reaches inside the desk drawer)
Jasmine: (walks into the shop, followed by Angel and Connor) To me, of course.

Lorne: You know what they say about people who need people...
