  • And it is proven... wicca and wrestling do not mix...

  • An underworld wrestling match in order to save someone's soul is a bit more than I can handle, but I gave the episode a 7 because of the sheer absurdity of it all.

  • Quotes (16)

    • Leo: I sorta...kinda lost the wedding ring. (Piper and Prue gasp) Darryl: Got a great ring guy downtown if you need one. Piper: He doesn't need one. He has a ring. Mom's ring. I gave it to him so he could give it back to me at the perfect romantic moment! Phoebe: Wow. Leo, you lost Mom's ring. It's a good thing you're dead already.

    • (After Phoebe tells Prue that she didn't vanquish Cole) Phoebe: Prue... Prue: Ooh! Phoebe: Uh, are we OK? Prue: Not by a long shot. Look, Phoebe, if you waited till now to tell me about Cole in hopes that we would die and you wouldn't have to deal with me, you have another think coming. Phoebe (as Piper points at her): I think that went well.

    • (After Leo orbs in, gets an address, and orbs out again - leaving him behind) Darryl: Oh, see, OK, now, that ain't right!

    • (As the Charmed Ones enter the elevator to hell) Piper: Remind me again why we are doing this? Phoebe: Because your sisters have a thing for saving bad boys. Piper: If I die before I get married I'm going to be really mad at the two of you. (They scream as the elevator falls and crashes in the underworld) Phoebe: Oh, oh God! Piper: OK, I'd still like to point out that I have a really bad feeling about this.

    • Phoebe (as all the lost things keep coming back): I hope this doesn't effect my virginity. Piper: Wait, so everything is coming back to where it was lost? That means you lost your vir… Oh! (A large pile of lost socks and such push open a door in the kitchen) Phoebe: OK, so it's a big side effect. Piper: Those better be clean. If not, it's laundry day for you, missy.

    Trivia (15)

    • When Tom is about to kill the woman from the newspaper Piper freezes him. You can see a car in the background which three people had just gotten out of. We see them freeze (albeit slightly out of time), then we see the sisters run towards Tom and in that split second, the three people aren't standing by their car anymore!

    • This is the only time that the chevrons have ever been mentioned or shown to demonstrate the demon heirarchy.

    • When Phoebe finally tells Prue about having let Cole go she compares the situation to Tom. Why didn't she also bring up Brendan the warlock priest who they just stopped from killing the girl his brothers kidnapped and Baine Jessup who while not a demon had tried to kill all of them in and then after breaking out of prison Prue slept with and helped save him from Litvak. While she could say that neither Tom or Brendan killed anyone,Baine we know had at least ordered the hits of all 13 of the witches on Barbas' list, nine of which were successful. While he may not have directly killed these woman he orchestrated the killings and tried to kill them. So doesn't that make him a killer too?

    • TRIVIA: This is the third time that Prue has brought a badguy into her home and been determined to save him from evil against her sisters' wishes. Previously she has done the same with Brendan the warlock preist and mobster Baine Jessup - each time she has been succesful.

    • Doesn't it seem odd that if Phoebe really wanted to tell Prue about her letting Cole go that she kept insisting on vanquishing Tom? You'd think if she really wanted Prue to take the news well she would have empathised with Prue and encouraged her to save Tom so Prue would maybe be more receptive!
