Angel: Over the Rainbow

Cordelia is accidentally sucked through a magical portal and transported to a demon dimension, finding herself all alone in a strange new land where humans are considered inferior and sold into slavery.

Episode Notes
This episode received a 4.7/7 in ratings for overnights.

This episode ranked 4 out of 17 WB shows for the week.

This episode received a 3.2 in the national ratings.

This episode ranked 84 out of 127 in prime time shows.

Guest star Persia White previously appeared as a different character in the first Buffy the Vampire Slayer episode (as well as the unaired pilot).

The Region 1 DVD omits the beginning of the teaser with Angel, Wesley, and Lorne. It's preserved, however, on Region 2. Because it also includes the recap sequence, it was likely removed by mistake.

Episode Quotes
Wesley: It's cold.
Angel: What? Put on a sweater.
Wesley: No, no, the hot spot is cold.

Host: Remember when I said I loved this dimension and I'm never, never, never gonna leave? Exactly which "never" did you not understand?

Wesley: I suppose I could try a binding spell of some kind, something to fuse us together when we enter the portal.
Angel: Good. Let's do that.
Wesley: However, we could emerge on the other side as a freakishly hybridized Siamese twin.

Angel: I want to go. Bad. Just waiting for Wes to have that "eureka" moment.
Wesley: EUREKA!
Angel: Oh, thank God.
Host: You mean he actually says "eureka"?

Angel: And I'm not on fire.
Wesley: And we're all together, too. We didn't even merge into a freakish four-man Siamese twin!
Gunn: That was a risk? How come nobody told me that was a risk?

Angel: Can everybody just notice how much fire I'm not on?

Host: Just remember, keep your heads down. Xenophobia kind of a watchword where I'm from.
Gunn: I don't get it. Why are they afraid of Xena? I think she's kinda fly.
Wesley: Xenophobia. Fear of foreigners.
Gunn: Oh. Then can we pretend I didn't just say that?

Cordelia: I want to go home. I want to be in my bed. I want to order some Thai food. I want to read the latest issue of Marie Claire. I want to be doing anything but shoveling demon horse poo!

Cultural References
Cordelia: You're like Hindu right? You don't actually eat the cows?

Hindus believe in reincarnation, where cows or other animals may be reincarnated dead family members.
