A Wrong Day's Journey into Right

Aired Sunday 8:00 PM May 02, 2004 on The WB



  • Trivia

    • In the opening scene, a post-it note is shown which describes a succubus as a "sexual predator demon". However, in the Season Two episode She's a Man, Baby, A Man!, it is stated that a succubus is not a demon but a witch who has made a pact with darkness.

    • When Piper is at magic school Leo and Phoebe orb in from the ceiling. Since Magic School is above ground (that is shown for example in the season 7 finale), so why are they coming in that way? They should be getting in through the floor not the ceiling.

    • When Phoebe is making the potion you can see how she looks at the book of shadows and touches it as if she was looking up the potion ingredients. But if you look closely the page that is being shown is the one from Tempus, and she is not even looking at the text she is looking at the image only.

    • How did Chris know that the cigar he found on the ground belonged to the demon? It could belong to anyone.

    • When Chris orbs to the Manor after breaking out of jail, he says that he talked to Darryl and he's gonna cover for him. Yet a few minutes later, Darryl comes with two policemen to take Chris back, and also tells Phoebe that he's done covering for them since the last incident when he almost got killed. So how exactly did Darryl agree to cover for Chris if he's gonna take him back? No way Chris was lying because he sounded serious.

    • TRIVIA: Chris was arrested two times. Chris was arrested for stealing a car to chase a demon in another car and the second time, cops and Darryl came to the Manor to arrest Chris.

    • TRIVIA: In this episode, Leo indicates that Chris is 23 years old when he discusses with Piper his future father role for Wyatt and Chris. If Leo wasn't rounding, this also means that Chris had a birthday between this episode and Hyde School Reunion 3 episodes prior. However, it has to be assumed that he is rounding since Chris' birthday is clearly the same day as his birth in the season finale It's a Bad,Bad,Bad,Bad World 1 and 2.

    • It's revealed that Paige doesn't like grapes.

    • TRIVIA: The bad Vincent uses the phrase "raison d'etre" twice in reference to Paige's desires. The phrase "raison d'etre" is a French phrase that means 'reason to be' or 'basic reason to be'.

    • When Paige asks Vincent why that's his name he says it's because Vincent was her first true love. However, in the season 4 episode A Paige from the Past, Paige says her first love was Philip Lewicky. Which is contradicted in the season five episode Sense and Sense Ability when she tells Nate it was Bobby Maynard and here once again when it is said to be Vincent.

    • When Mr Right cuts himself with the knife, he does so quite viciously. When the wound is shown, it is only cut in the centre of his palm - it does not continue to the edge of his hand. He hardly bleeds at all either and seems to forget about it quite quickly.

    • When Chris gets into the car, he starts it up immediately, but would the car really have the key in the ignition ready like that?

    • TRIVIA: Chris calls Leo "Dad", for the first time and their relationship towards each other is getting better.

    • When Piper froze the throwing stars, it took too long for them to freeze. She threw her hands up, and it took about five seconds for them to stop.

    • Mr. Wrong chants "Shall soon be gone, with no haste," but the target of the aging spell ages pretty quickly - within a matter of seconds.

    • Chris doesn't have a birth certificate, his fingerprints aren't on file, he doesn't have a social security number, and there is no paper trail to prove or establish his identity. Chris being in police custody would get him in a lot more trouble than just stealing a car.

  • Allusions

    • There is a subtle theme with the Paige story line that resembles the fairy tale Pinocchio. They reference Pinocchio as they discuss good Vincent. Later Phoebe turns good Vincent into a human, just as the wooden puppet was turned into a human boy. Additionally, bad Vincent wants to take Paige on a road trip through Tuscany, Italy. The author of the fairy tale was Italian.

    • Phoebe Well, looks like I'm the last sister standing now.

      This is a reference to the common saying "last man standing" and could also reference 1996 movie Last Man Standing, that starred Bruce Willis.

    • Title: A Wrong Day's Journey Into Right

      This is a reference to the play Long Day's Journey Into Night by Eugene O'Neill, as well as the movie by the same name.
