  • Quotes (6)

    • Angel of Death (to Prue): You grieve and then you move on.

    • Death : I am not good or evil. I just am. I'm inevitable.

    • Leo places the lamp on a table. Piper stands behind him. Piper: It’s just so bright. Leo: Of course it’s bright. It’s supposed to represent the light of eternal love. Piper: Wait, does that mean we can never turn if off? Phoebe: At this rate you’re gonna turn it off in record time. Piper: I’m just saying, I don’t think it belongs in the living room. Leo: Or the parlor, the dining room, the foyer. Piper: Pheebs? Phoebe: Oh, do you think I’m stupid, I am staying out of this.

    • Prue astral projects in. Prue: Hi. Need a little help? Cole: What are you doing here? Prue winks at him. Reece: How did you get here? What the hell's going on? Seeker #1: Well, well, well. The mighty Belthazor, in bed with a witch. Prue: Don’t make me sick.

    • Phoebe: They retreated? Prue: Yeah. I kicked ass. Cole: No, you kicked air.

    Trivia (11)

    • At the beginning when Prue is taking pictures, she points her camera upwards at the woman. Being what seems to be a nice sunny day, her shutter speed would not be 1/60. It should be a faster speed because of all the light. Also, her f/stop is always on f/11 yet her shutter speed changes. Because these two factors work together, as one increases, the other decreases and visa versa. If they don't the pictures either come out under/over exposed.

    • TRIVIA: This is the second time that one of the sisters mourned the loss of their innocent, this time it was Prue losing Reese Davidson.

    • If Piper and Phoebe couldn't get the door open because the demons locked them out, then how did they get in after Reese was killed and the demons left?

    • When Piper and Phoebe are outside the mausoleum, the thing holding the door shut keeps changing positions.

    • The Seeker demons in this episode bear a striking resemblance to the Gentlemen in Buffy the Vampire Slayer (episode 4.10 Hush). Both demons glide along the floor and have their heads tilted to the side for most of their time on screen.
