Trivia

Angel reveals that the contract on Buffy's life with the Order of Taraka has been cancelled, which is why they send no more assassins after her after the deaths of Octarus, Norman Pfister and Patrice. See more »

Goofs

The "stock" exterior shots of the house in Torrance are missing the "1630" address of Buffy's house and have the "1313" address of the actual house visible, while the exterior shots specific to this episode have "1313" removed or obscured and "1630" in place. (This is pervasive through all seven seasons of the series.) See more »
