    • Cole: Wait. I won't hurt you. Phoebe: No? It's a little too late for that, don't you think?

    • Prue: All right, listen, here's the deal. Belthazor killed the Triad, now The Source wants him dead. Krell is trying to suck up to The Source, so he wants to kill Belthazor. Piper: Belthazor wants to kill us so The Source won't kill him. Leo: And if you work with Krell, you can vanquish Belthazor before he kills you. Phoebe: Works for me.

    • Piper: I don't understand. How can you not know that the Triad is dead? Don't you think that's kind of important? Especially since, I don't know, they've been trying to kill us for the past two years? Leo: We've heard rumours, talk, but that's it. Nothing substantiated. Piper: Well, I guess you can substantiate it now, can't you?

    • Phoebe: It just doesn't help that you never liked Cole from the beginning. Prue: Yeah, well... I mean, you never really liked any of my boyfriends either. Phoebe: That's very true.

    • Prue: We're gonna vanquish him. Piper: We're gonna vanquish Phoebe's boyfriend? That's going to cause some problems.

    Trivia (11)

    • When Cole is at the cematary he continues to morph back and forth between his human/demonic half. Each time he does, his suit is different (all black as Belthezor and navy blue jacket/white dress shirt as Cole). However, when at Cole's apartment, once Phoebe leaves to get Leo, Cole begins to do it again, only this time his shirt stays the same while morphing back and forth. A shirt by the way, that was different than both shirts worn by his human and demonic halves at the cematary!

    • At the cemetary when a weakened Cole is morphing back and forth between his human and demon self, his suit keeps changing. Since Cole/Belthezor is still only one person, wouldn't he only get dressed once?

    • In this episode, Leo encourages the girls to work with Krell. However, in the season two episode, Apocolypse Not, Leo, even before learning that they were the Horsemen, was adamant that they should never work with evil!

    • TRIVIA: Cole is not the first evil being to fall in love with a witch/mortal while on the job. Prior to Cole the Charmed Ones had battled Anton the warlock, Drasi, Alec the darklighter and the Necromancer, all of whom fell in love with good woman while initially using them for something else! Cole, however is the only one to ever attempt to turn good as a result.

    • Why did Leo have to take off Cole's bandage to heal him? He never had to before.
