Eve's knocked down by a punch, and Cary starts moaning and rubbing his fist in pain. After he recovers, Cary leans over into Eve's face and tells her to sing for him. He adds, "Winifred Burkle once told me, after a sinful amount of Chinese food and in lieu of [sic] absolutely nothing, 'I think a lot of people would choose to be green. Your shade if they had the choice.'" What is with all the "Winifred Burkle" stuff? Oh, maybe Whedon accidentally grabbed the Dawson's Creek show bible accidentally. That'd explain everything. He adds that if he finds out Eve was involved with Fred's sickness, "these two won't even have time to kill you." After a moment he adds that singing anything by Diane Warren will also get her killed, "except 'Rhythm of the Night.'" Eve -- looking a lot nicer than usual with her hair all mussy and her body, you know, covered up -- repeats that she wants to help. Angel tells her to sing. Eve looks down and sings, "Pretty as a picture,/ she is like a golden ring." Which, as many noted, is a snippet of the song Lindsey performed in "Dead End," and that's another little moment I liked. Cary says that Eve isn't involved. Angel says, "You've been wrong before," but he says it like it's a question, which is weird. Or maybe he's saying it like that because he doesn't know if Cary remembers being wrong. Or...eh, maybe it's just a bad line reading. Cary agrees that he could be mistaken, but repeats, "She reads clean. Her future's not too bright, but...." Eve asks what Cary means, and he says, "If I was about to face your future, I'd make like Carmen Miranda and die."
They start to exit, and Eve calls after them, asking if they'll tell the Senior Partners where she is. Spicule suggests that she'd make a nice bargaining chip, and Eve decides to save herself by providing inexplicable knowledge in order to move the plot along. She says that if there's nothing about the sarcophagus in Wolfram & Hart's files, it must be part of "what came before." Angel expositions, "The original demons, before humankind. They were all driven out of this dimension." Eve adds that before that happened, some of the demons killed each other, "and they don't die the way we do." She says that Wesley's books "can conjure up anything, not just our own stock." I see. Well, in that case: Aaa! If that's true, why the hell would Wolfram & Hart have needed to get the Scroll of Aberjian back from Angel, and why would Lilah have needed to snatch the Nyazian scroll to find out about the prophecy, and why doesn't Mutant Enemy have a similar source they can use to avoid contradicting themselves from week to week? Gah. Eve says that Wesley should "look for the texts that are forgotten" by everyone except Eve. Then, because she rightly suspects that even if he knows where to look, Wesley will somehow manage to misinterpret whatever information she finds, Eve adds, "You need to find the Deeper Well." She's got absolutely no motive to be this helpful. We're all clear on that, right? Just checking.
