  • A boring main story + A wonderful sub plot = An average Charmed episode.

    • Aviva: Come to me Kali. I conjure thee Kali. Come to me Kali. I conjure thee Kali. (In the mirror, Kali appears.) Kali: I'm here Aviva. Aviva: It's been over a week. Kali: I know. Be patient Aviva. Aviva: But I've done everything that you've asked. I've followed the Halliwell sisters. I know their every move. Kali: Which will all become valuable in good time. You must trust me. You must make them want you as badly as you want them. (Aviva looks at the closet.) Aviva: I talked to my mom today. Kali: How is she? Aviva: I don't know. She's better...I think. I miss her. Kali: She's gonna be so proud of you. Aviva: Yeah? I hope so. Kali: Are you ready to receive your power? Aviva: (giggling a little) You know I am. Kali: Remember, it's a sacred power. If I give it to you, you must use it only as I say. Aviva: I will. I promise. Kali: Very well. Reach for the mirror. Put out your hands. Feel the power. (Aviva reaches her hands towards the mirror. Aviva's hands begin to glow. She receives the power. Her hands stop glowing and she puts them down.) You know what to do. Go to Phoebe, Piper, and Prue. (Aviva grabs her coat and leaves. We see flames in the mirror. Kali appears as her evil demon self.)

    • Phoebe: Aviva! Aviva/Kali: Hello Phoebe. How's the arm? Phoebe: You're not Aviva! Aviva/Kali: You're not kidding!

    • Piper: So you know... it's not like either one of us has a problem finding guys... Phoebe: Please. Piper: So if one of us got Leo, it'd be ok with the other one. Phoebe: Absolutely. Piper: So we can just consider this a friendly competition. Phoebe: Sibling rivalry. Piper: War. Phoebe: Exactly!

    • Piper: Hungry? Leo: Uh. Piper: Oh, it's on the house. Leo: You're big on food, aren’t you? Piper: Uh... Leo: No, that's good. You know, actually, in the Mayan culture the cook was second in the hierarchy only to the medicine man. Piper: Mayans? You know about Mayans? Well, you certainly are a handyman, aren't you? Leo: Uh, so, does Phoebe work here too? Piper: Phoebe? Work? No, no, no, she's probably at her gay and lesbian group right about now. So what'll it be?

    • Phoebe (to Leo about Piper): Oh, that's just Piper. She's got to be everyone's mom. Think of her as your mom, I know I do.

    • Phoebe: Got milk? Got Milk? is an American advertising campaign encouraging the purchase of cow's milk which was created by the advertising agency Goodby Silverstein & Partners for the California Milk Processor Board in 1993 and later licensed for use by milk processors and dairy farmers. It has been running since October 1993. The campaign is credited with putting life back into milk sales nationwide after a 20-year slump. These ads would typically feature people in various situations involving dry or sticky foods and treats such as peanut butter. The person then finds himself in an uncomfortable situation due to a full mouth and no milk to wash it down. At the end of the commercial the character would look sadly to the camera and boldly displayed would be the words, "Got Milk?". The slogan "got milk?" was licensed to the National Milk Processor Board (MilkPEP) in 1998 to use on their celebrity print ads, which included celebrities from the fields of sports, media and entertainment, as well as fictional characters from TV and film such as The Simpsons and Batman, posing in print advertisements sporting a "milk moustache," employing the slogan, "Where's your moustache?"

    • Title: The Fourth Sister
