  • Quotes (23)

    • Piper: No, doesn't matter. After we send him back, history will take care of them as long as you finish your ride. Lady Godiva: Promise. And thank you...for giving me a glimpse of what's to come. Phoebe: Thank you...for showing us you're more than a box of chocolates. Lady Godiva (confused): I'm sorry? Piper: Ummm...never mind. Okay. Here we go.

    • Lady Godiva: I'm no sex object. I was riding through town in my natural state to protest my husband's unjust taxes. (The toaster pops and Lady Godiva gasps) Piper: Uh, wait. Riding? As in plucked out in the middle of? Paige, she has to finish that ride, or else it could change... Paige: Yeah. History as we know it. I got it. But even worse, if I don't send her back soon, I'm pretty sure The Elders are gonna shut down Magic School. Piper: I don't think that's worse than changing the course of history.

    • (Paige, Phoebe, and Godiva shuffle quickly into the kitchen from the living room) Phoebe: Uh, those are my sisters... Leslie: I thought you just had two. Phoebe: Yeah, the other one is a cousin... distant cousin... twice removed.

    • Paige: Well we can't stay out here we're attracting too much attention. Piper: Yeah and we don't want to get flogged.

    • Paige (about casting the spell, in the sexist world): Oh, I told you we should have waited for Leo! Piper (while looking at the 'Ask Leslie' poster): Shut up!

    Notes (4)

    • International Episode Titles: France: A l'├ęcole de la magie (At the Magic School) Italy: (Lady Godiva) Germany: Nackte Tatsachen (Naked Matters)

    • In this episode, Alyssa Milano wears a wig of long blonde hair and rides a white horse as she protests and mimicking Lady Godiva. She also played another woman mimicking Lady Godiva on the TV show Spin City, where she played the Mayor's daughter who wanted to make a statement.

    • This episode scored 4.8 million viewers.

    • John de Lancie and Elizabeth Dennehy also had guest starring roles in episodes of "Star Trek: The Next Generation".

    Trivia (26)

    • Why would Phoebe and Leslie have children in the alternate reality where Godiva never made her ride. They just met in the previous episode, wouldn't Phoebe have children perhaps with Cole or even with Jason Dean?

    • TRIVIA: With Piper asking Godiva to cover up because "this is a family show", this is the only episode of the show where a character breaks the fourth wall.

    • When the sisters send Godiva back for the first time, daylight can be seen through the windows. However, when the candles they are using go out it is suddenly pitch black! Sending her back may have changed human history but there's no way it could have turned day into night like that.

    • When Phoebe is talking to Les in the office the drop earrings that Phoebe is wearing seem to be in the lowest hole in the right ear and the next one up in the left ear.

    • When Leslie first sees the Manor he tells Phoebe that the paper must pay better than he thought. That is the same thing Jack said to Prue when he first saw the manor in the season 2 episode That Old Black Magic.
