Apparently they shared some more details on the ride home, because as the MoG return to the Hyperion, Angel says, "Sucked into his own portal. Wish I could have seen his face." Gunn quietly agrees, and stomps upstairs, with Fred trailing behind him. Angel dopily watches them go, thinking, "But I didn't get to tell them about my fight with the lizard-demon! It was cool!" He turns his head and suddenly notices Cordelia across the lobby, looking at him. She asks if they can talk outside.
Cordy and Angel sit down in the courtyard. Cordy notices the cut on Angel's cheekbone and reaches a hand toward it, but Angel shies away from her. Aw, he doesn't even want her to bandage his wounds any more. How sad. He explains, "Run-in with a Voynok demon. Turns out they have nine lives." "Like a cat?" Cordy asks. Angel says, "Only less standoffish." Heh. Cordy gets to the reason for her visit, and says that she knows they were friends, and she understands why Angel lied to her before. She mentions her vamp-staking adventure, and Angel angrily interrupts, "Connor took you --!" Cordy presses on, saying that she doesn't need protection, and she doesn't want any more lies. Angel agrees, "No more lies." Cordy says, "Good. Because there's something I need to know. Were we in love?" Angel stares at her as he tries to decide whether exaggerating qualifies as a lie.
After seeing Lilah and Wesley, I honestly don't care either way about what happens with Angel and Cordelia. My sense of what's freakish and wrong has been overloaded. Next time, amnesia turns out to be contagious, Cordelia fondles herself, Angel discovers that he's a vampire, and, so help me, it looks funny.
