    • Leo: Okay, you know that phantasm you vanquished? Apparently Barbas sent it so you'd follow it. Chris: And apparently he gets a get-out-of-hell-free card, too, if he wins the case.

    • Phoebe (to the Tribunal): You have got to be kiddin' me right? I mean you can't really be doing this! Gideon: Phoebe, they have already.

    • Cleaner 1: What do you think you're doing now? Phoebe: Well, we didn't know how else to call for you. Figured you weren't listed in the yellow pages.

    • Phoebe: How's Piper? Have you seen her? Chris: She's good. Uh, big! You know, I keep thinking how weird it's gonna be to actually see myself being born.

    • Chris: I think I have a new theory on who might be trying to turn Wyatt evil. Paige: Oh, a new theory. What's that? Like the third one this week? Chris: What're you keeping score now? Phoebe: She's just grumpy 'cause she hasn't had her coffee yet. Paige: I am not grumpy. (Phoebe gives her a look) Ok, fine, maybe a little bit. But you have to admit you've had a lot of different theories lately, and none of them have panned out. Chris: That's why they call them "theories". Paige: Do we even get along in the future?

    • International Episode Titles: Czech Republic: Tribun├íl (Tribunal) France: Le Tribunal (The Tribunal)

    • Phoebe's levitation power was written out of the series due to budget cuts, meaning the producers couldn't afford the wireworks.

    • This episode aired April 23, 2004 in Canada.

    • The WB used the promo title "Charmed on Trial" for this episode.

    Trivia (20)

    • TRIVIA: This is the first appearance of Inspector Sheridan, who would become the sisters' main nemesis during the remainder of this season as well as the following season.

    • TRIVIA: Piper doesn't use her powers in this episode.

    • When the Cleaners freeze the scene, and Paige and Phoebe turn around, you can tell they're in front of a green screen because parts of Phoebe's arm disappears and reappears for a quick sec.

    • Why does Darryl remember everything? Why didn't the Cleaners make him not remember? They altered reality as if nothing happened and the people involved like his wife and Inspector Sheridan were acting as if nothing happened except for him. In that case, he wouldn't turn his back on the sisters and stop helping them.

    • How come Leo, Chris and the sisters were sure that Inspector Sheridan was STILL possessed by the Phantasm? After all, the Phantasm's purpose was to make Sheridan expose the sisters, and Barbas may have dispossessed her at any time. And by the way, why didn't he do that or thought about it because if he went all this far to save himself, something small like that wouldn't slip his mind.
