  • Quotes (23)

    • Piper: Leo, are you okay? Leo: I just can’t believe it. I don’t have powers anymore. I don’t hear jingling. I can’t orb. Piper: Is that bad? Leo: Are you kidding? (Smiling) It’s great. It’s everything I’ve wanted ever since the day I met you.

    • Piper: I thought you were never going to find your way home. Leo: It was your faith that brought me back. I could hear you calling me, like you were right there next to me. Piper: I had a good coach (referring to Cole), an old friend.

    • Cole (to Piper) : Look, you have someone out there who needs you as much as you need him. Now if you don't have faith in that love, it's not the only thing that'll die.

    • Cole (to Piper): Like it or not, Phoebe and I were very much in love.

    • Piper (about Phoebe): She didn't tell me she had a thing for Drake. Paige: Well, I mean, she didn't tell me, either. But come on, he's...he's cute, he's funny, he's smart, and he's destined to leave. I don't know, that kind of sounds like her type to a tee.

    Trivia (15)

    • Although Piper could walk through any furniture as a ghost, she didn't, presumably because she was used to walking around them like every normal person does.

    • TRIVIA: The number '150' is used 2 times this episode. Piper mentions 150 alleyways and Paige mentions phoning 150 police stations.

    • TRIVIA: There are two brief flashback scenes in this episode. As Leo is recovering his memory, he first sees himself killing Elder Gideon in the sixth season finale "It's a Bad, Bad, Bad, Bad World (2)", shortly after he remembers when he proposed to Piper in the bathroom, in the third season premiere "The Honeymoon's Over".

    • TRIVIA: This is actually the ninth time Piper died, making her the sister with the highest number of deaths. She was killed in the season 1 episode "Deja Vu All Over Again", in the season 2 episode "Awakened", twice in the season 3 episode "Coyote Piper" and "All Hell Breaks Loose", in the season 4 episode "Saving Private Leo", in the season 6 episode "I Dream of Phoebe", and in the season 7 episodes "Styx Feet Under", and "Someone to Witch Over Me".

    • When Phoebe is saying goodbye to Drake, she says it's been three weeks since they met, but in the previous episode "Carpe Demon", Drake says he only has two weeks to live.

    Allusions (5)

    • Piper falling into a coma and her spirit encountering a demon, who wishes to help her.
      This episode plot is quite similar to the season 3 episode "Birthday" of the series Angel, in which Cordelia falls into a coma and her spirit meets a demon named Skip, who wishes to save her. Coincidentally, the actress who played Cordelia (Charisma Carpenter) appeared in a few episodes earlier this season as The Seer.

    • Title: The Seven Year Witch
      This is a reference to the famous Marilyn Monroe film "The Seven Year Itch".

    • Drake: The point is Leo and Piper's love, it's epic, it's massive. Like Romeo and Juliet, Anthony and Cleapatra....Brad and Jennifer.
      In early 2005, famous celebrities Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston annouced their separation after their 7 year relationship/4 year marriage.

    • Drake: Come on, don't scry for me Argentina.
      The song "Don't Cry For Me Argentina" is included in the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical "Evita" which starred Madonna and was sung by her.

    • re: Leo "falling from grace"
      Leo jumping from the bridge seemed very similar to how Seth became human for Maggie in the film "City of Angels" where he jumped from a building.
