Inside the elevator, Angel tells Gwen to get down to avoid the gas while he fumbles around at the walls. She snarks back, but obediently sinks to the floor. He asks her where the utility panel would be, and she snarks some more but finally points him in the right direction. Angel starts punching through the wall.
Out in the lobby, Mr. Chase is on the phone. He tells someone, "We should be finished here any time now. Uh huh. I see. Uh huh. Well, we had the tuna casserole last Thursday, Molly." Hee.
Back in the elevator, Gwen decides that in case she dies, she wants Angel to know, "Nice kiss." Angel finishes hammering through the wall and grabs the wiring. Gwen grabs his other hand and: kerzapple! The elevator doors open, along with the bars. Mr. Chase watches as Angel carries Gwen out and puts her on the ground, and alerts his minions. And then, y'know, there's a fight. Angel gets in some nice fu and takes out all of the minions, then turns to see Gwen already up and stalking Mr. Chase. She lectures him that she doesn't like being called a freak: "That's my word, and I get cranky when people like you use it." Angel watches as Gwen mentions that she's been struck by lightning fourteen times. Angel interrupts, "So you're a freak? Boo hoo, so what?" Gwen's distracted by that, and Angel says, "I'm not exactly the poster boy for normal. Sometimes you gotta let go." Then he quickly punches Mr. Chase, knocking him out. Gwen says that she wanted to do that, and Angel replies that Gwen was going to kill Mr. Chase. "Did you at least break his nose?" she asks, and reaches down to zap Mr. Chase. Angel grabs her arm to stop her. Gwen confirms that Angel really is going to use the Axis to find Cordelia. She says, "Anyone that bad at stealing stuff's gotta be doing it for love. Bummer." She stomps off. Oh Gwen, you can do better, don't worry about it.
