Kate apologizes that she can't be more help to Angel. He says that eliminating possibilities helps. "Now you're talking like a detective," says Kate. Angel claims that he is a detective. Kate points out that detectives have résumés, business licenses , and last names. "Pop stars and Popes, those are the one-name guys, " she says. But Popes have several names, even if they are all first names. Despite this, Angel says, "You got me. I'm a Pope." Leave the comic relief to Cordy, Angel. A junior deus ex policeman comes in with some old files. We learn that Maude's death was considered suspicious because she had a lot of arguments with her son, Dennis. Apparently Maude didn't like Dennis's fiancé, says Kate, "and Dennis skips town with her the day that mom drops dead. What a coincidence." There weren't any other murders in that apartment, so, for no readily apparent reason, Angel asks if there were any suicides. He explains to Kate, "There's a kind of a killer that does that." "Makes it look like a suicide?" she asks. When he doesn't really answer, she turns back to the computer and searches for suicides at the apartment. I'd like to know what story he gave to Kate to explain why he wondered if anyone had ever died in this particular place, but whatever. Sure enough, they discover that three women have killed themselves in that apartment over the years. Angel goes to call the office, and Doyle answers. Angel asks for Cordy, but Doyle says she isn't there. Doyle plays the message on the machine, and when Angel hears his voice telling Cordy to go the apartment, he says, "That's not me," and hangs up before Doyle has time to explain that your voice always sounds strange when you hear it on a recording.
