    • Piper: Who's Chanda Lier?
      Phoebe: Oh, they're for me. I ordered some CDs.
      Piper: Using a fake name to score some free CDs. Isn't that a little dishonest?
      Prue: Is Phoebe's dark side rearing it's ugly head?
      Phoebe: I do not have a dark side, thank you very much. And just because I protect the innocent, doesn't mean I have to be innocent all the time.
      Piper: Ooh, I don't know. Still believing in the Woogyman is pretty innocent. It's so cute too.
      Prue: Yeah, well, you didn't think it was so cute when we were all sharing a room which kept you up all night.
      Phoebe: It was scary and it was real.
      (The gas man walks out of the basement.)
      Piper: So? What's the verdict?
      Gas man: Bad.
      Prue: Bad as in "destroy my entire dinner party" or bad as in "you can fix quickly, it'll just cost more than my entire education".
      Gas man: By tonight, there will be no more problems.
      (He walks back in the basement.)

    • Gas man: What the... ? Woogyman: You have freed me. And now you'll help take back the house. (The Woogyman enters his body and the gas man becomes evil.)

    • Prue: Grams must have thought that this evil might come back. And that's why she told us the story. Piper: How do we remember the words? I never even believed in the Woogyman. Prue: No, but Phoebe did. She knows the story by heart. Piper: Something tells me she's not in the mood to share.

    • Prue (after Piper is prevented from leaving the house): Are you ok? Piper: No, I'm not! Neither are you! We're locked in this house, and our sister is trying to kill us.

    • Piper: Somebody just kill me now and spare me the agony of cleanup. Phoebe: Ask and you shall receive...
