  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (12)

    • Phoebe: I am so sorry…about everything. The…lies and… Jason: Hey. Don't. Remember you saved me. Phoebe: Yeah, but that was after I tried to kill you. Jason: Well, there was that.

    • (As they see Phoebe walk out of the house with her strange behavior and outfit) Piper: Please tell me she didn't… Paige: …cast a spell on herself? I think she did.

    • Phoebe: You live a double life with your boyfriend, and you pay the price. If anyone's karma made this happen, it's mine. Paige: That's true. You had the chance to clean this up tonight, and you didn't. Phoebe: See? There is that "I told you so", huh?

    • (Paige is urging Phoebe to tell Jason that she's a witch, but she's annoyed by Phoebe's hesitation) Paige: Ok, that was a three-course meal, not including the fruit and cheese plate. I gave a million openings. What do you need, a drum roll? Phoebe: Actually, that's not a bad idea.

    • Paige: I swear this is where we found The King last time. Piper: Well, maybe your orbing was off. Paige: My orbing was not off. They just moved. Piper: Well, we should be hearing the swarm. So why don't we? Paige: I don't know. 'Cause there's like a gajillion miles of this stupid maze? They could be anywhere. Piper: We don't even know if Phoebe is here. Paige: Well, it's our best bet. I swear, if she is hurt, I am never going to forgive Richard. Piper: I think Jason's the one we need to worry about right now.

    • "Mata Hari, isn't she one of the Bond girls?"
      This could be an allusion to the very first Bond movie made Casino Royale from 1967, with David Niven as James Bond. The film's plot had Bond and Mata Hari having a daughter, Mata Bond (played by Joanna Pettet).

    • Paige: Then how do you explain my sister walking around like the nudie version of Les Mis?
      Les Mis is the shorter title of "Les Misérables" - a famous play by Victor Hugo about a French man who escapes prison and goes from rags to riches while still being persued by a fomer prison guard. It has been turned into a movie and has been performed in many theaters.

    • Phoebe: Saved by the orb.
      An adapted saying from the common phrase "saved by the bell".

    • Paige: Since when do you speak freedom fry?
      When France opposed the United States in its bid to win United Nations support for the 2003 invasion of Iraq, the U.S. House of Representatives changed the name of French fries on the menus of their restaurants and snack bars to "freedom fries." The name was changed back to French fries in 2006.
