Allusions and References
- Midnight Train to Georgia: Gladys Knight and the Pips' biggest hit was "Midnight Train to Georgia" off their tenth album, Imagination. The Motown song is from the perspective of the girlfriend of a failed musician who moves back home to Georgia after languishing in Los Angeles. She decides to go with him, despite being secure with her place in the world.
- Lorne: Leaving on the midnight train to Georgia. Actually it's the nine eighteen flight to Vegas tomorrow, but where is the poetry in that?
- Cats: Cats is a musical composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber. It has the distinction of being one of the longest running Broadway musicals, but is often criticised for its lack of central storyline. The musical instead progresses through a series of vignettes sung from the perspective of alley cats.
- Angel: Vampire. You're not in Cats.
- Lilah: Mind if I join you?
Wesley: On many levels and of great intensity.
- Connor: It's good to see you happy, dad.
Gunn: Now he's humming.
Fred: He's really happy.
[Fred gets off the couch, walks over to Angel and starts to poke him with a stake.]
Fred: But not perfectly happy, I hope!
Angel: No! Ouch!
Fred: Just checking.
