    • Cole (referring to the demon in Phoebe's premonition): What'd he look like? Phoebe: Creepy half-face, and his good side has tribal markings, a little bit like... Cole: Belthazor. Phoebe: A little bit. Do you know who he is? Does he work for the Source? Cole: He doesn't work for the Source, Phoebe — he is the Source.

    • Source: What did you see? Seer: I saw... your demise.

    • Phoebe: Who are you? Seer: Someone who just saved your lives. (The Seer takes the Hollow from Cole and puts it back into the box) Seer: Quickly! Take my hand! Cole: Trust her, if you want your powers back. Seer: Say the inscription with me! (The Seer and Phoebe say the inscription on the box and it goes back to the place it belongs)

    • (The sisters put up a forcefield to block the Source from using his powers on them while they vanquish him) The Source: Crystal. (one of the crystals creating the forcefield orbs into his hand bringing the forcefield down) Now the moment we've all been waiting for! (forms a fireball and throws it at Phoebe but Cole shimmers in and takes the fireball absorbing the Source's powers) Belthazor! Phoebe (realizing): No. The Hollow... Cole (throws a fireball at the Source): Hurry, the spell (throws another fireball) Piper: Prudence, Patricia, Penelope, Melinda... Phoebe: Astrid, Helena, Laura and Grace... Paige: Halliwell witches stand strong beside us... Piper, Phoebe & Paige: vanquish this evil from time and space! (The Source screaming, catches on fire and explodes, vanquished)

    • Phoebe: I don't know who you are, but whoever you are, we thank you. Seer: Oh, I didn't do this for your future, I did it for mine. Paige: I don't understand, if we got our powers back, where did the Source's go? Seer: Into the void.

    • Peter Woodward takes over the role of the Source in this episode. Previously the role has been played by two other actors(not counting the actors playing characters he possessed or shapeshifted into), the first being Michael Bailey Smith in All Hell Breaks Loose and Bennett Guillory in Charmed Again (1), Charmed Again (2), and Brain Drain. He will again reprise the roll of The Source in the season eighth episode Desperate Housewitches, as well as appearing as the demon Aku in two episodes of the seventh season.

    • This episode scored 4.7 million viewers.

    Trivia (26)

    • In this episode, Piper pulls the darklighter's arrow out of Leo. The first time he is shot by the arrow, Prue must use her powers to pull it out because Leo tells them they cannot touch the arrow because of the poison.

    • TRIVIA: This is the second time that Leo is shot with a darklighter's arrow, the first time being in the Season 1 episode Love Hurts. This time he is healed by Paige, who was channeling his own healing power, when last time it was Piper, after she switched powers with him.

    • TRIVIA: The Seer said she helped the Charmed Ones for her own future. This seems to be foreshadowing her manipulation of Cole and Phoebe in future episodes in order to intricately have herself become The Source in the episode Womb Raider.

    • TRIVIA: The spell the girls use to vanquish the Source is - "Prudence, Patricia, Penelope, Melinda, Astrid, Helena, Laura and Grace, Halliwell witches stand strong beside us Vanquish this evil from time and space". They will also use this spell to vanquish Cole (who has become the Source) in the later season 4 episode called Long Live the Queen.

    • TRIVIA: The Source calls the Hollow "the ultimate power", but later, in season 8, the powers of Billie & Christy will be called the same thing.
