    • Why would the sisters discard Gram's ring like that? It's part of their history; wouldn't they keep it as a reminder of Grams?

    Allusions (4)

    • Phoebe: What good is it being a witch if I can't just twitch my nose and make the laundry fold itself? Cole: Uh, which witch can do that?
      This is a reference to the series Bewitched. The lead character Samantha, who was a witch herself didn't rely on potions or incantations, but twitched her nose to work her magic. Her daughter Tabitha also moved her nose (with her finger) to perform magic much more efficiently than Phoebe or her sisters.

    • Phoebe: Now that I'm going to be Sadie, sadie married lady...
      This is a reference to the song "Sadie, Sadie" from the 1968 movie "Funny Girl". Fanny sings the song right after she weds Nicky comparing herself to her friend Sadie.

    • Title: Lost and Bound
      A reference to the phrase "lost and found".

    • Phoebe: It was one of my favorite old TV shows. I mean, I liked Samantha, I just never wanted to be her.
      Phoebe compares her marriage to Cole to the TV series, Bewitched, about a witch, portrayed by Elizabeth Montgomery, who was married to a mortal man, played by Dick York (and then later Dick Sargeant), and how they had to hide her magical abilities from the rest of the mortal world.
