  • Whoa! This season it's great! They have mixed a good off-screen work, tons of original stories (Pirats, museum robbery, fountain of youth...) and a strange way to get a great episode... Anyway, it could have been better with that material!

  • Quotes (14)

    • (Piper, carrying a book, walks toward Paige who's squinting through bottles of ingredients, trying to make out their contents) Piper: I think I found something. Paige: Huh?! Piper: I said I think I found something. What're you deaf now too?

    • (Paige's sight seems to be fading as she looks through the BoS) Piper: You need glasses there ma'am? Paige: No! I'm just a little woozy.

    • Phoebe: What am I gonna tell him? We're robbing a museum.

    • Paige: Do I look like a ma'am to you? Piper: Morning, sunshine. Paige: I was just at Magic School taking Wyatt to the nursery, he's fine I might add, and a student bumped into me and said, "Excuse me..." Piper: A kid with manners? Alert the authorities. Paige: You didn't let me finish. He said, "Excuse me, ma'am." Do I look like a ma'am?

    • Paige: This seems like a job for the young kick ass Charmed Ones!

    • International Titles: Italy: Il calice della vita (The Chalice of Life) Germany: Der Fluch der Piraten (The Curse of the Pirates) France: La malédiction du pirate (The Curse of the Pirate)

    • The set used to do the whole museum's robbery is used later in the season 8 episode Mr & Mrs Witch. It's used in the scene when Billie's father is at the convention and when Piper poses as the boy confesses.

    • Kerr Smith originally auditioned for the role of Andy Trudeau right back in 1998.

    Trivia (19)

    • TRIVIA: Leo does not orb in this episode.

    • During the scene where old Paige orbs both sisters back to the attic, only seconds pass where Piper and Leo are talking to Paige, however Phoebe declares that she cannot find a reversal spell anywhere in the book. Are we to believe that she has looked over the many hundreds of pages in this time?

    • Piper uses a Motorola i830 in this episode.

    • When Sheridan is talking to Darryl at the police station, she momentarily looks at the camera.

    • In the opening scene when Leo and Piper are talking, it is dark in the attic. Later an elder is shown and the attic is still in darkness. When the creature head appears and the end of the attic is shown, it's no longer dark. How is it possible?

    Allusions (4)

    • Black Jack: God? Afraid not. You'll have to settle for Captain Black Jack Cutting. Parrot: Aye-yae, Captain. Black Jack: Don't you just love clichés?
      This is a reference to the common cliché that usually the captain has a parrot with him that can talk and that is a captain's "best friend".

    • The scene where Phoebe is trying to steal the Chalice from the museum is similar to the scene done by actress Catherine Zeta-Jones for the movie "Entrapment".

    • Title: Charrrmed!
      This is a reference to a pirate's common saying of "Arrr".

    • Phoebe (when first told about the pirates): Oooo! Any cute Johnny Depp pirates?
      This is a reference to the 2003 Disney movie "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl", starring Johnny Depp as swashbuckler Captain Jack Sparrow. The popular film was later followed by 2 sequels "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" in 2006 and "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End" in 2007.
