    • Charlene: You were right about me. I went home, I saw the folks crying, then I knew it was true. I've never seen my dad cry before. Not over me anyway. Then I got pissed. The demon did this to me. I wanna prove he doesn't exist any more.

    • Phoebe: Hey. Ask me how I did on my final. Prue: How did you do on your final? Phoebe: Oh, thank you for asking.

    • Phoebe: I thought you said all we have to do is get justice for Charlene's murder? Piper: I said, maybe that is all you had to do. Phoebe: You did not say maybe. Piper: Yes, I did. I absolutely did. Phoebe: I did not hear the word maybe. Piper: Yes, I did.

    • Phoebe: About an hour ago, right after I was trying to tell Charlene that she's dead. Prue: I'm lost. Phoebe: Oh, sorry. Wrong sister.

    • Piper: Phoebe. Phoebe: It's 8:00. It's 8:00. I'm late for my finals. Piper: Phoebe, relax. It's Thursday. Your finals are tomorrow. Phoebe: It's Thursday? Piper: Yes. Phoebe: Today is Thursday. You sure? Okay, that's really good news.

    Trivia (16)

    • Phoebe was supposedly trying to be quiet and not draw attention to the chips she was eating, they were probably not supposed to have food in the library (hence Charlene saying "I won't tell if you won't"). However she was obviously trying to make noise while chewing them.

    • When Phoebe look in the Book of Shadows, the demon is revealed to be Libris, a demon who attacks humans who have found proof of demons. However, later when Phoebe is in the library, Libris pulls her into the stack. Why would he do that after she's a good witch and she surely won't expose the world of magic. Shouldn't he be able to sense magical beings ? It's possible it was for his own self-preservation.

    • TRIVIA: Leo reveals that the reason that demon corpses disappear upon being vanquished, is actually a way to keep their existence a secret from the world.

    • TRIVIA: This episode reveals Leo died in battle during World War II while trying to patch up a wounded soldier. His wife Lillian received his purple heart. He first revealed he died in WWII in the season 1 episode Love Hurts but this episode extended the details.
