  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (26)

    • Phoebe: Come on, you and Greg. Put out any fires lately? Piper: Is that supposed to be a subtle fireman reference? Phoebe: Yeah, you like it? Paige: Wait a minute, you're going out with a fire fighter? Piper: Proof positive you haven't been around much. Phoebe: Let's see. They've been seeing each other for about three weeks, and someone, I won't say who, although it's not the fireman, is avoiding taking it to the next step.

    • Paige: I am not at Richard's that much. Fine, okay, maybe I am. But, you know I am just an orb away if you need help. Piper: Yeah, the thing is, we've just got to be careful because if we stray too far away from each other, demons take advantage. We've learned that lesson the hard way a few times. Paige: I know, I know, I get it. I just really don't want to think of us living together in fifty years. Piper: Nah, twenty, thirty years tops. Phoebe: We can always move to Hong Kong so I could see Jason whenever I want to. Piper: How do you say "dream on" in Chinese?

    • Piper: What's the problem? Leo: He's not healing. Something is draining his powers and blocking mine. Its like a virus. Piper: A virus named Bianca. Phoebe: You think she did this? Piper: Its gotta be. Paige: Yeah, but it doesn't explain why she would come back from the future just to kill him. Piper: Well, somebody had to of sent her. She's a hired gun. Phoebe: Well, we've gotta find her to save him. Figure out what she did. (Sound of Phoebe picking up Chris' emotions.) Wow. Leo: What is it? Phoebe: Oh, my God. He loves her. Paige: Loves who? Bianca? Phoebe: Yeah. She broke his heart. (Phoebe sees that Chris is holding something in his hand. She takes it from him and holds it up.) Engagement ring. Paige: Obviously an acrimonious split.

    • Bianca: You really shouldn't try to orb anymore, you know. It could kill you. Chris: Is that what you want?Bianca: Ha, if that's what I wanted, you'd already be dead. All I want is to bring you back. Chris: How'd you know I'd be here? Bianca: Same reason you'd knew I'd be waiting here. This is still our spot, isn't it?

    • Elise: When I say, take time, I don't mean a vacation. Go live there for awhile. Give it a shot!
      Phoebe: Elise, I-
      Elise: No! I want you to listen to me! Its time I gave you some advice for once. Don't let it be work.
      Phoebe: What do you mean?
      Elise: There's a whole generation of women out there who followed the dream; built successful careers... but at the expense of everything else. Now, I'm not saying I think they all made mistakes because some of them are very happy... but some of us aren't. Trust me, you don't want to wake up one day and realize that, all you've got is your career.

    Trivia (20)

    • In this episode, it is implied that Chris is engaged to an older woman, since in present-day, Bianca is 4 or 5 and Chris hasn't been born yet.

    • TRIVIA: Bianca says to Paige "the power of two will have to do. Oh, you'd be surprised what's in the history books." Paige mentions the power of two when discussing with Piper whether or not they should call Phoebe. It was also said by Prue in the season one episode Power of Two.

    • Phoebe asks Paige to drop her off to Hong Kong where Jason is. But what about exposure? Considering she was acting on her true desires as she was under the spell, but how did she explain to him her sudden arrival and departure minutes later?

    • TRIVIA: According to the tour guide in the future, Chris comes from the year 2026, since The Charmed Ones were reconstituted in the year 2001 - 25 years ago.

    • TRIVIA: At the Halliwell Museum, some of the costumes from season 5 are displayed. Like the super-hero costumes in the episode Witches in Tights, the mermaid costume in A Witch's Tale (1) & (2). And also what appears to be the one worn by Phoebe in Y Tu Mummy Tambien, when she was possessed by Isis' soul, and the one worn by Paige when she becomes a Nymph in Nymphs Just Wanna Have Fun. There is also the Little Red Riding Hood robe from Happily Ever After and the clothes Paige's evil past-life wore in A Knight To Remember.

    Allusions (5)

    • Paige:'ve come a long way, baby! This is a reference to Fatboy Slim's second studio album with the same name. This line is also the marketing slogan for Virginia Slims cigarettes.

    • Title: Chris-Crossed This is based on the common phrase "criss-crossed" meaning mixed-up, or jumbled up. It can also be in reference to a betrayal - as Wyatt views Chris' actions "Et Tu Chris?" or Bianca's betrayal of Chris, her fiance.

    • Leo: ...were born with a distinct birthmark symbolising the rise from Salem's ashes.
      This is not a reference to witches being burnt at the stake in Salem, Massachusetts, since witches were not burnt at the stake in Massachusetts. Only Melinda Warren, an entirely fictional character, seems to have been burnt at the stake. Thus this is actually a reference to rising from the ashes of the biblical city of Jeruselam, often referred to as Salem. 2nd Chronicles 36: 15-23 speaks of its destruction by the Babylonians, with 2nd Chronicles 36: 19 stating "They set fire to God's temples and broke down the wall of Jerusalem; they burned all the palaces and destroyed everything of value there."

    • Wyatt: Et tu Chris?
      This is a reference to Shakespeare's Julius Caeser III, I, 77. Caeser has been betrayed by everyone he trusted including his best friend Brutus Casius, and this is his famous line (but replaced with Chris' name instead).

    • From the Book of Shadows, about Arabic legends: a phoenix is a bird which incinerates at the end of its lifespan, then regenerates itself from the ashes. in egyptian folklore the phoenix resembles the sun, dying each night to be reborn in the morning.
