The Short: The second of a two parter. When Lorne uses a spell to restore Cordelia's memory it leaves everyone in their high school personas.

The Long: After a ''Previously on Angel'' segment (see
Continuity #1) we open on the host singing, talking about youth and the unreliability of magic. He tells a story which opens where our last episode left off, as Cordelia asks Angel if they were in love. Angel dodges the question and tells her he had feelings for her, but she disappeared before they could talk about it. Cordelia is upset about the whole thing and Angel promises to get her memory back as the host walks in with good news. A client of his got him a memory spell which he promises to restore Cordelia with no side effects. In nariation the host admits to how stupid he was. (Listen to the teaser here.)
