Exhibit A: Cordy shoves Angel into the office and announces, "Angel has something to say!" Fred and Wesley look up expectantly. Angel wisely decides this isn't the right setting to shatter Fred's heart into a billion pieces. He looks at the paper in his hand, and asks, "Did anybody else see this?" He shows Wesley an article about the incredible wilting Woody. I can't believe I said that. You know: the melting guy from the teaser! Wesley recalls seeing a similar case last week, and starts pulling out notes. Cordy points out that nobody hired them to investigate this case. She is ignored. Wesley pulls out an article describing another melted corpse that was found ten days ago, and agrees that they should look into it. Angel tells Cordy to "open a case file," and hurries out. Cordy blinks and then follows after Angel, preparing to yell at him.
At Wolfram & Hart, Gavin is tagging along behind Lilah. He tells her, "I know I'm going to have to earn your respect, but give me a little time. You'll see [that] I'm a creative guy." Lilah teases Gavin about his insidious plan to "torment Angel with building-code violations." Gavin insists that he has other ideas: "One of them being, does Angel even exist?" Lilah worries that Gavin's getting metaphysical on her. He explains that Angel doesn't have a social security, a taxpayer ID, or even a last name. "How can he go down to the building department -- or anywhere else in officialdom for that matter?" "Officialdom"? Gavin asks whether Lilah wants to see what Angel will do next, and Lilah suggests that Angel might rip out Gavin's throat. Gavin doesn't think Angel would do anything so clichéd. I laugh bitterly to myself. Gavin wanders off, and Lilah asks her secretary to track down "Carter Williams, the graphic artist." The secretary looks bewildered until Lilah clarifies, "Look under 'F' for 'Forger.'" That's an interesting way to organize your address book.
