  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (26)

    • Phoebe (regarding Prue staying in the bathroom after turning into a man): Do you think she's touching herself?

    • (After Phoebe and Piper promise not to laugh at Prue's situation being a man) Prue/Manny: ...I have hair in really strange places, I have a penis! (Phoebe can't hold a laugh in, and Prue storms back into the bathroom) Piper: (Angrily to Phoebe) What is wrong with you?!

    • Morris: Wanna me to release him? Your friend punched a cop. Phoebe: Four men have died in last four nights, but none so far tonight. Why do you think that is? Piper: Because of Manny, that's why. Phoebe: And if he stays in jail, another innocent man might get killed. Morris: I suppose you want me to release this, uh... this Dr. Owen Grant, too, huh? Phoebe: Uh, no, actually. He's still a potential victim. As long as he's here, he's safe. You can't let him out. Morris: This is going to bite me in the ass. I know it is.

    • Manny/Prue: You know, I think that it's the smaller things that I look for in a relationship, you know, like... listen to your partner, kindness, respect, I mean, as far as I'm concerned there's nothing sexier, nothing hotter than someone who respects him... herself, because, you know, if she respects herself, then she respects others. Jan: Can I just say that you are really in touch with your feminine side. Manny/Prue: You have no idea

    • Dan: So, Piper isn't seeing anyone? (Prue tries to copy Dan's moves.) Prue: No, not really. Dan: So Piper is seeing someone? Manny/Prue: No, not really...God. I would just hate to see her with a guy who, oh, lets say on the third date just runs away. Don't you just hate men like that? Dan: I don't know any men like that. Manny/Prue: Oh... ha... How about those "niners"? (Piper and Phoebe walks in) Piper: Ok, here's your ice. Dan: Thanks. Phoebe: Oh, you're welcome. Ok, bye bye. Take care. Tell Jenny we said "hi", ok? All right, good. (He leaves) Piper: So? Manny/Prue: We're in big problems.... huge.

    Trivia (6)

    • TRIVIA: This is the second time that Prue cast a spell that didn't go the way she planned. The first time was in the season 1 episode Which Prue Is It Anyway?.

    • When Darryl shot the Succubus in the alley, there was a huge spot of blood on her dress when she hit the ground. There was no evidence of a pool of blood when Darryl checked her vitals. Seems like the blood was already on the dress at the moment of impact.

    • This is the first time Prue got transformed into something by her own spell.

    • TRIVIA: The Cranberries play songs Just My Imagination and Promises in this episode. Also featured Take A Picture by Filter and Blue Monday by Orgy.

    • Piper: The man you most admire is Richard Simmons?
      Richard Simmons is a flamboyantly feminine and gay aerobics instructor who was popular in the 80's and early 90's with his home videos, the girly spin on Manny's walk seemed like a walk that Simmons would pull off.

    • Phoebe: We could win the gold medal in the Hugh Hefner Olympics.
      Hugh Marston Hefner (or "Hef") is the founder and editor-in-chief of Playboy magazine.

    • Title: She's A Man, Baby, A Man!
      This is most likely a reference to the popular movie "Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery", when Austin Powers (played by Mike Myers) says, "She's not your mother, it's a man, baby!"
