  • When Paige and Phoebe summon Grams for Chris' Wiccaning, Grams puts a spell on the children to try to end their sibling rivalry, but instead it reverts the sisters back to bickering teenagers. Meanwhile Phoebe, still acting like a teenager, attends an award ceremony with Les, and Leo consults a demonic seer to find out who is behind the attack on Wyatt.

  • Quotes (29)

    • Grams: Victor, what are you doing here? Victor: And a big hello to you too, Penny. I was invited for a wiccaning. Grams: Oh, sorry. Wiccanings are only for magical family members. Victor: That's not what Paige says. Grams: Well, Paige doesn't know all the rules. Piper: Okay, I can see this is going to go really well.

    • (Piper is on the phone with Paige, who called to say that Wyatt orbed Chris out of Magic School. The doorbell rings, and Piper opens the front door to find Victor on the porch holding a baby.) Victor: I hope this is yours, because it sure isn't mine.

    • (As he watches Phoebe through his office glass window as she walks across the bullpen to leave) Leslie (to himself): If she turns around, that means she likes me. Come on, Phoebe, don’t let me down. You can do it. Turn around. (Phoebe stops at the door, then turns around to look at him, before she walks away) That-a-girl.

    • Patty (reciting a spell): Reverse the spell from the book, and please restore what was...took. (Victor gives her a look) Patty: I made it up when I was nine.

    • Victor: We're talking about my daughter here. So I get a say in this. Grams: No, with birthdays and holidays, you get a say. With magic and demons, what I say goes.

    Trivia (17)

    • Wyatt was able to sense that the Leo demon was behind, which is why he was able to protect himself. He also showed that he could sense danger or someone being in danger from the womb and in Sense and Sensibility when Leo was in danger.

    • After Wyatt's and Chris' rivalry went into the sisters, Grams said she needed a reversal spell to take it back out. However, if she had just used the same spell that she used on Wyatt and Chris, the rivalry would've been pulled out of the sisters and would've gone back into Wyatt and Chris. No other spell was needed.

    • When Wyatt is taken by Leo/Demon, Piper and the real Leo fight in a cave to take him back. Before the fight starts, Leo/Demon goes away from Wyatt to the right side of the cave, but after the fight is over, he emerges from the left side.

    • When Grams is casting the spell, Wyatt changes positions between shots. In one shot he is near his brother looking at him and in the other he is away from his brother.

    • Paige and Piper panic when Wyatt orbs his little brother to some unknown destination. Why didn't Paige just call for Chris, like she did with Wyatt when he was a baby?
