    • Leo: Phoebe, can I talk to you a minute?
      (Piper blows up Leo)
      Leo: What did you do that for?
      Piper: Like hell, you're bringing those muddy shoes in my house.
      (Leo looks at his shoes.)

    • Leo: Look, Piper I need you to help me find Paige.
      Piper: I'm not talking to her 'till she cleans up her room.

    • Phoebe (to Spencer): You know what? You're a turkey. And turkeys don't write columns! (Throws potion, and Spencer turns into a turkey) Phoebe: But they do make delicious dinners.

    • (Paige as Jessica)
      Paige: Nose job, I should've guessed.

    • Phoebe: What are those?
      Piper: Slip covers, to keep the furniture clean. Although, I've come to the conclusion that we should probably just stand from now on.

    • At the end when Paige is talking to Glen and Jessica in the park, a man starts running behind Paige down the pathway. The camera cuts away from her for three seconds but when it is back on her the man is completely gone. It is not possible for him to have run that distance in that time.

    • In a few seconds Piper's hair changes three times: When she says "...big mama?" her hair is near the neck, the next shot it is another way and the last time (when she turns and Paige gets in) she has the whole hair surrounding the neck.
