Listener’s Buffy/Angel Rewatch (A3.13)

Angel 3.13: Waiting in the Wings

  • Dude, why WOULDN’T you sleep with Phantom Dennis? He’s probably a polite lover.
  • Gunn is so casual about his appreciation of Fred. It’s pretty suave.
  • "Don’t be using my own phrases when we’ve lost the trust."
  • Oh, hell. This one was written and directed by Whedon. Bad things are in the offing.
  • Andy Hallett was quite tall.
  • Heh. Kyrumption.
  • "Stop calling me pastries."
  • I think Lorne may have been the first openly pansexual character on network TV.
  • Speaking of, I would think that Lorne would want to go to the ballet too. He loves art and music. I’d think he’d hate to be stuck on babysitting duty.
  • That tux doesn’t really fit Richards very well.
  • Yeah, um… seeing plays and ballet from that high up kind of sucks. And I’m the kind of person who enjoys going to plays and musicals.
  • Oh, of course, it’s a Joss Whedon show about ballet, so naturally there will be an appearance by Summer Glau.
  • In case you’re interested, this is what Giselle is about.
  • I really loved the way that Gunn totally got into the ballet.
  • Maybe you guys wanna bring the unconscious dude in where no one can see him?
  • Gunn was right. That dude does have quite an impressive package.
  • I was about to write something about how good Angel’s memory is but then I realized I remember exactly what my room looked like while I was growing up.
  • Just to talk about the whole “sex = moment of ultimate happiness thing”… I love sex, don’t get me wrong, but my moments of ultimate, perfect happiness haven’t come during sex. Usually.
  • Okay, that was two REALLY sexual lines between Cordy and Angel in about two minutes.
  • And then there’s an “Angel has a boner” reference.
  • Perhaps locking the door would’ve ensured that you two remained alone.
  • At the time, Cordy didn’t have enough hair to justify that giant bun on top of her head.
  • You seriously just used the phrase “mack on a hottie”. ~sigh~
  • Fred, you haven’t had sex in at least five-and-a-half years; no offense, but do you remember what that sounds like?
  • Who invited V for Vendetta?

  • Wes just assumes that Fred is incapable of taking care of herself.
  • Not gonna lie, that was an impressive move.
  • Gunn has really nice hands for someone who’s grown up rough and had to fight demons and such for at least six years — probably longer.
  • Back in the early 2000s, the fact that the skinny white actress ended up with the hunky black actor instead of the white one was quite a thing.
  • Okay, Wes, we get it, you really liked Fred but now you’re devastated that you can’t have her. Still, don’t overdo it.
  • 112 years, actually.
  • Someday I’d like to see Summer Glau play against type.

  • Protip to villains everywhere: if you have a power center, don’t wear it around your neck. Hide it somewhere safe. Imagine how long Voldemort could’ve ruled if he’d thrown the diadem in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.
  • Don’t complain, Wes. You get to have Lilah, and I bet she’s a LOT more fun than Fred.
