    • (Darryl, under a spell, takes a teenage boy into custody.) Teenager: How'd you do it, man? How did those bullets bounce right off your chest like that? Darryl: Because I'm a bad ass, that's what. (Opening the door to the police car, Darryl pulls it off its hinges.) Teenager: What the hell was that? Darryl: Shut up. (Darryl shoves the kid into the back seat, propelling him across the seat and out the other door.) Teenager: What the hell are you, man?

    • Chris: There's a demon in the playpen!

    • Phoebe (gazing at the baby demon): Look at how cute he is, so adorable. Oh, except when he does that weird little thing with his tongue.

    • Phoebe: You tell a guy that you love them and they bolt, you know, it's just what they do!

    • (After Phoebe interrupts a meeting) Jason (to the Italian guests): Vogliate scusarmi. Torno subito. Phoebe: I didn't know you spoke Italian. Jason: Outside! Phoebe: How come I didn't know you speak Italian?

    Trivia (21)

    • In the beginning of the episode, Piper pulls the blanket off and reveals the baby demon. While she is the only one to wear clothes with sleeves, the shot where her hand removes the blanket shows an arm with neither sleeves, nor Holly Marie Combs' easily recognizable tattoos.

    • Where does Darryl's superstrength come from? Paige's invincibility spell explains why he is immune to bullets but it doesn't explain how he can suddenly rip doors off cars.

    • TRIVIA: When Leo says "I am a father first", Chris is shown smiling. This is a foreshadowing reference to the future of season six when Chris is revealed to be Piper and Leo's son.

    • TRIVIA: This is the first time that the top of the Golden Gate Bridge appears in the show.

    • TRIVIA: In this episode, Jason speaks italian.

    Allusions (3)

    • The scene where Piper is healing to the Beast is a clear allusion to The Beauty and the Beast. In that story there is a scene where Belle (the beauty) is healing the Beast just like this episode.

    • Title: Little Monsters
      This is a reference to the old TV series Little Rascals, which was also made into a film. Plus there's a film called "Little Monsters" starring Howie Mandel and Fred Savage, about monsters under the bed.

    • Re: Manticore demons
      The manticores in this episode are partially based on legendary creatures of the same name. However, their appearance and mating habits are dramatically different according to most legends.
