** In the Gargoyles universe all time is simultaneous and immutable. There doesn't need to be a first cause because the entire loop all exists together as a single event. it's like the old paradox of going back in time to meet Martin Luther king only to be dismayed because he's having trouble writing his "I have a dream" speech. So you write it from memory for him. So you got the speech from TV/school/books. but the TV/school/Books got the speech from him, but he got it from you.The speech didn't really come from anywhere. Gargoyles is 100% consistent on this too. When you get used to the way time travel works in the series this kind of thing makes a weird sort of sense. (Note: "Watchmen" and "The Time Traveler's Wife" and "The Terminator" [but not ''necessarily'' its sequels] among others use this same model for time Travel.)

Why? Xanathos repaired him not once but twice. But for some reason, the face continues to be "one-half xanatos, one-half {{Terminator}}" instend of just choosing one or the other.

*** According to wikipedia, nimbus clouds usually form at less than 2000 feet. So the building has to be at least that tall.

** The best answer is he's met sufficiently few gargoyles that seeing one who looked a lot like Goliath but was immediately recognizable as not Goliath didn't set him off. Additionally anybody with first hand knowledge of the Weird Sisters may very well skip silly questions like how can there be an identical clone of something running around. The man has spent several centuries chasing a gargoyle.

** "Who the blazes are you?" ''is'' him being shocked at the appearance.

* I find it odd that MacBeth's only response is "who the blazes are you?" when he first sees Thailog. He's not at all shocked that there is a gargoyle who looks and sounds like Goliath standing next to Demona? My first thought was that MacBeth was going to mistake Thailog for Golaath, but that didn't happen. He doesn't question why the evil gargoyle looks like one of his enemies.

** DID he say father? It's been a while since I saw that episode, but I thought he said ancestor or Grandfather or something like that, alluding to The Minotaur.
