  • Quotes (12)

    • Alchemist: It has been an eternity since we worked together. Zankou: Ah yes, those were the days. The Crusades, the September massacres, the black plague... Alchemist: Good times. Zankou: Good times.

    • Zankou: If I'm to get what I'm after, I'm going to have to attack them all—not as witches, but as women.

    • Piper: Traffic was horrible. We should have been home an hour ago. Leo: Well, we wanted a normal life, right? That means we give up the cosmic taxi. Piper: Well that doesn't mean I gave up the right to complain about it.

    • Paige: Look, we can make this work — I know we can. You keep planning that party. I'm gonna meet my charge, give her a pep talk. By the time Phoebe's back, I'll be home. We can do this. (She orbs out) Piper (to Wyatt:): Mommy wants to teach you a new word. It's called denial.

    • Darryl (about Sheridan): She's already linked you to way too many murders. It's getting harder and harder to cover. Phoebe: I know, and I'm sorry about that. But she's got nothing. She's just going off a hunch. Darryl: But if we accidentally trigger her memories, then everything comes back. And then that's it. It's over—for all of us. Phoebe: Well maybe that's not such a bad thing.

    Trivia (13)

    • Inspector Reece has been dead for over four years, yet his body is still very intact. A dead human body starts to decompose about 24-48 hours after death when the bodies supply of ATP is depleted. Considering he was buried, those cold, moist conditions would have made him almost completely decomposed at this point.

    • The shot that shows the bed in the scene where Phoebe runs out of her bedroom and Piper looks if there is someone there will be used again in the season finale episode (when the manor explodes).

    • In the beginning of this episode, Phoebe is asked to get a tool and she gave the guy the wrong one. Why doesn't she know anything about tools anymore? In the season 1 episode "The Witch Is Back" she knew which tool Leo wanted.

    • TRIVIA: The song at the beginning of the episode during the opening credits is Vanessa Carlton's "San Fransisco".

    • Why didn't Piper just freeze the zombies? She was not forced to blow them up, since she still has the power to freeze and that would have allowed the sisters to ponder what to do next.
