    • (Prue attempts to move a wooden stick through the Guardian's chest, it passes through him) Phoebe: I thought you said Guardians were like Vampires? Prue: I may have misinterpreted that...

    • Cole: Why did you call the Halliwells last night? Darryl: What? Cole: While you were on stakeout, at 2:17 a.m., according to the phone company. Darryl: You checked up on me? Cole: Standard procedure, inspector. Darryl: Gee, and here I thought we were on the same side...

    • (Cole sneaks up behind Phoebe and she almost kicks him) Phoebe: Cole. Cole: Hi. How's it going? Phoebe: Wow, is this embarrassing... I'm... Cole: It's okay. I'm okay. Nice calf. Phoebe: Thanks. Can I have it back?

    • Cole: Ladies, my name's Cole Turner. I'm the assistant district attorney assigned to this case. I was wondering if either of you saw what happened here? Phoebe (raising her arm, to answer): I did.

    • Cole: I think we’re in good shape except for the... what’d you call the murder weapon? Aah-THEM-ee? Phoebe: Athame. It’s a ceremonial knife used by... um, lots of different crazy people.

    Trivia (18)

    • When Phoebe kicks at Cole, he grabs her leg and holds it, then Phoebe's leg changes elevation, depending on who's talking.

    • When Phoebe is in the living room discussing the Emilio situation, she says that Cole was wonderful in court yesterday. However, a little while later when Cole is talking to Darryl, he says that he let a killer go today. He also mentions that Darryl had called the sisters last night, confirming that it was all the same day. So which was it?

    • Why does Prue sound so surprised when she says it is the judge, after Piper freezes the room? They were already pretty sure about that, having suspected him in the previous scene.

    • If Balthazor is such an almighty, well-known demon, who has been recognized in his human form by other demons on multiple occasions, why didn't The Demon Judge (a.k.a Free Willy) know who he was when he sent Emilio after him?

    • In this episode, Phoebe has a premonition of Cole being attacked by Emilio. Why is it that considering all the contact the two have in the following couple months, she never has another premonition indicating his true identity? This episode clearly shows that neither Cole nor the Triad has done anything to shield him from her premonitions?
