Angel fusses with his hair in the foreground, while behind him Wesley and Gunn explain to Cordy that, in Pylea, Angel can cast a reflection and walk in the sun. Angel continues trying to flatten his hair as he nervously asks, "This is because of going through the portal, right?" Cordy assures him, "No, it always looks like that." Angel finally turns toward them as Wesley suggests that Angel and Cary look for "portal activity" while the rest of them look for a magic book. Angel shakes his head and says, "I don't get it." Wesley tries to explain again, but Angel turns back to the mirror and clarifies, "No, I mean why didn't anybody tell me about this?" He sounds truly sad, as he goes back to fussing with his hair. Cordy lies, "You look good," and walks off, while Angel wonders, "You're not just saying that?" Wesley pulls Angel away from the mirror and shoves him toward the door, suggesting that they try asking Cary's cousin Landok for information. While Wesley gives his instructions, Angel continues trying to see his reflection over Wesley's shoulder. Hee. Cary whines about having to talk to his family, and Wesley points out that it's either that or never getting back to earth. Cary sighs dramatically and tells Angel, "Come on, gorgeous. You can stare at yourself in my grandmother's glass eye." Johanna reports that this is her second favorite line ever on Angel. Number one is still Gunn's "Three-fifths of the world covered in water, the rest covered in me!" Cary reminds Angel to call him "Lorne," since in his world, "a host is just one more thing to lay your eggs in." Angel asks if they can stop to get his coat, providing some helpful continuity since he has it in later scenes. As they leave, Wesley asks if Cordy can get them access to the Tromblibrary, and she smiles, "Am I not the princess?"
