The Hyperion's lobby is full of demons and humans talking with various members of the MoG. And, I expect, some members of the local bunco squad who want to hear some more about their "paranormal investigations." Funny, it seems like recently there was a lot of concern that all sorts of folks would be trying to kidnap and/or kill Angel's kid. But I guess that explosion killed off every enemy and baddie in the whole world, so now it's okay to have crowds of visitors. Heck, maybe all of these people are just guests for the baby shower. Cary's talking to some demons who wear shiny chrome masks. I guess because that way they can walk the streets of Los Angeles unnoticed. Or maybe they come to the Hyperion through the sewers. I would love to see a quick take of Angel giving directions over the phone: "First you follow the storm drain down to the main sewer line, and then it's the third ladder on the left, just past the bilge room." Cary finishes chatting with the demons -- who communicate in unrecappable clickity-clacks -- and goes over to Angel. Cary says that the demons are ready to pay a hefty sum for the help of Angel Investigations' leader. By which he means Wesley. Cary explains, "They saw his web articles about DNA fusion comparisons in tri-ped demon populations." Sure, fine. The Castanet demons -- who don't understand English -- were surfing the net for scientific abstracts. In English. Why not? Angel heads over to the front desk, where Cordy whines that they're overwhelmed with potential clients. Six hundred flyers and a webpage. That's all it took. And people say the show doesn't contain any science fiction. Angel answers a ringing phone: "Angel Investigations, your problems are our problems." He almost immediately starts asking about the caller's financial situation. Because he's sort of obsessed with money just now, you see. It's subtle, but if you watch this episode a few times you can definitely see a theme.
