If Alpha is a Doll why not use Topher's gizmo we saw in The Public Eye to knock him out?
Good point. He may be a little like Echo and have some immunity to imprint tech.
The ones that you mentioned, plus :
: "Well ... TALLY HO, then! In fact - what say we tally your hoes?"
and Ballard's "So if she floats
, she's a witch." (Not a funny line, but incisive.)
He describes Echo as his 'immortal beloved' which is a reference to Mozart.
I think that you mean Beethoven, but I'm just going by the title of the Beethoven biopic starring Gary Oldman. (This wouldn't be the first Oldman reference in a Whedon show, given Spike's gemeral demeanour (reminiscent ofm Sid And Nancy
?) and his playing of Oldman-as-Sid's version of My Way
episode Lover's Walk
; not to mention the Dracula connection.)
