Angel, Willow, and Xander walk down the same alley that Ford did earlier. Willow exposits that all her searches on Ford turned up was this address, the "Sunset Club," and that she didn't find anything incriminating. Angel points out that Ford's lack of records and paper trail is incriminating enough. Xander says he agrees with "Dead Boy." Hee. Angel snits not to call him that. Angel and Xander together have spin-off potential. They knock, and Angel says they're friends of Ford's. Inside, Willow and Xander realize they're not exactly dressed like the locals. Angel tells them to check out the downstairs. Xander snits, "Sure thing, Bossy The Cow." Hee. Angel and Xander, united in jealousy. Willow blathers something about sore thumbs. Xander: "You have too many thoughts." Okay, when did Xander go from Annoying Guy to Voice Of The Recapper? And if you smirk to yourself, "Same difference!" you're banned. Angel observes from the balcony. Willow and Xander walk by a guy dressed as a vamp, standing in a fake upright coffin. He says, "Hi!" and they greet him back. He's actually played by the show's makeup supervisor at the time (he may be still; I'm too lazy to look it up), Todd McIntosh. He's billed in the credits as "'Hi' Vampire." Hee. Xander asks Willow if she's sensing a theme. Willow: "As in, 'Vampires, yay'?" That line never fails to send me into a giggling fit. Chantarelle greets them, saying she can tell they're newbies, and that it's cool they're interested in "the Lonely Ones." Willow isn't familiar with the term, but Angel reappears and says that she's referring to vampires. Xander: "Oh! We usually call them the nasty pointy bitey ones." Chantarelle says that that's a misconception, and that vamps aren't interested in harming anyone, but are exalted creatures. Why am I suddenly picturing Harmony? Angel calls Chantarelle a fool. Hurt, she leaves. You know, I sort of forgot about this exchange when I watched "Blood Money" -- did neither of them realize that they'd met before? Xander and Willow berate Angel for driving Chantarelle away, but Angel says he's seen enough, and that he's familiar with this sort of person. "They're children making up bedtime stories of friendly vampires to comfort themselves in the dark." Oh, so they wrote Spike's character from Season Five on. He goes on that these kids don't know anything about vampires. "What they are, how they live, how they dress..." At that moment, a dude dressed in exactly the same outfit as Angel appears next to him, checks him out, and walks away. Ha! That was cheap, but it totally worked with Angel. Xander and Willow smirk; then Xander points out that they still don't know what Ford's up to. They leave, but Drearego overhears the name "Ford" and looks curious.
