  • Quotes (18)

    • Leo: So what is it we're looking for? Chris: Any demon that could be powerful enough to be organizing the Underworld, or any demon who might be running some sort of training camp for younger demons, or any demon who could be... Leo: So basically any demon. Chris: Yeah. This sucks, you know that? We're running out of time here, and we've got nothing, repeat nothing, to go on. Leo: We've faced worse. Chris: What's worse than not knowing? For over a year now I've been looking, and you didn't know this deadline was looming, but I did. I knew every single day. That's why I was never able to relax. Leo: Why didn't you tell us? Chris: Because I didn't want to get you involved. I was trying to protect you. Leo: Chris, we're your parents, we're supposed to protect you, not the other way around.

    • Corr (to Clea): Just be patient, my love, and together we'll rule the underworld. Gideon (invisible): It's an old goal, but a good one.

    • Upper-Level Demon: Just out of curiosity, how did you come up with the idea, anyway? Clea: Well, we can't take all the credit. You'd think demons would've invented reality television, but somehow humans beat us to it.

    • Paige: Phoebe is out there roaming around the world without any powers. Chris: Without her active powers. She can still cast spells. Paige: Great. So when the demon attacks her, let's hope that Phoebe can come up with a little rhyme just in time.

    • Phoebe (talking on her cell phone): A reality what? You have got to be kidding me. Alright. I'll be home as soon as I can. (she hangs up) Shapeshifter (disguised as Kyle): Is something wrong? Phoebe: Kind of. Listen, thanks. I-I have to get going. Shapeshifter (disguised as Kyle): I was having a really good time. Phoebe: Really? Shapeshifter (disguised as Kyle): Yeah. Phoebe: Well, thanks again for all your help, and maybe we can talk more tomorrow. Shapeshifter (disguised as Kyle): Or since you're heading home, I could just come with you. Phoebe: I'm sorry? Shapeshifter (disguised as Kyle): Uh, to check out your place. Look for any, you know, easy entry points. I mean, most bad guys usually attack at home. Phoebe: Are you sure about that? Because I think I've heard- Shapeshifter (disguised as Kyle): I'm the expert, right? (Phoebe grabs her purse) Shapeshifter (disguised as Kyle): So let me just come home with you. Make sure everything is alright. Phoebe: Yeah. Well, that's not gonna happen. See, I'm not going home. I, uh...have to go somewhere else. My fam- (The shapeshifter could not resist it anymore. He takes out an athame and approaches Phoebe with force, attacks her, and holds the athame to her throat) Shapeshifter (demanding): Take me to your house, witch. Now!

    Trivia (16)

    • TRIVIA: This is the 4th time Phoebe posesses a demonic power - first was in the season 1 episode Is There A Woogy In The House?, second was season 3's Bride and Gloom,and third was in the season 4 episodes We're Off To See The Wizard, Long Live The Queen, and Womb Raider.

    • TRIVIA: This is the last episode of Charmed to feature a warlock (other than in flashbacks).

    • While Paige and Chris is scrying for witches under attack, and Gideon moves the crystal, Paige says "ooh", but the closed-caption calls her Piper.

    • After the shapeshifter attacked (and possibly killed) Phoebe's reporter friend at the office, shouldn't that have brought police attention to her? Everyone at her office knew she was working together with him, so shouldn't she have been called in for questioning?

    • How does Phoebe know where to shimmer to when she goes to the bar and kills all those demons? There must be hundreds of demons in the underworld watching such a popular reality TV show...why didn't she go on a demon killing rampage throughout the underworld? Why bother killing one bar full of voyeuristic demons that weren't even involved with the gamesmasters and their supposed plan to capture Wyatt?
