Prudence 'Prue' Halliwell
Dr. Curtis Williamson
After the sisters freeze and enter the Records room, trying to find Dr. Williamson, Prue prints a copy of the information that she saw on the computer. The printer shouldn't work because when Piper freezes someone/something it ceases to function because it is completely frozen in time. For example, when Piper pricks Dan in the Season 2 episode They're Everywhere to test if he's a warlock, he doesn't bleed until she unfreezes him.
In the season 1 episode Wendigo Piper reveals her blood type is AB negative which she states is very rare, and Andy is the only other known character to have that blood type, so Dr. Williamson would have died from blood mismatching as it is unlikely he had the same blood type and Prue and Phoebe have a different blood group to Piper anyway.
Leo explains that Dr. Williamson is quickly going mad because mortals are unable to handle having witches' powers. However, in the season 7 episode Ordinary Witches, the neighbors receive the sisters' powers and while they certainly get a little caught up in the personal gain aspect they do not go crazy. While they only received one power each, unlike Dr. Williamson who received all three, Leo never specified he only said powers.
TRIVIA: There are no demons in this episode.
Piper said that they had the elixir and Phoebe said that Dr. Williamson trashed it. Wouldn't Piper have known this since she looked right at the smashed bottle when she was laying on the ground?
When Piper was reading the list at the hospital she said Dr. C. Williamson but the list at the hospital did not say that - the one at the house did.
The list of victims that Piper pulls out of her pocket, when Darryl leaves the house, is not the same one that they printed off at the hospital.
When Piper comes downstairs at the end of the episode, her watch is on her left hand and she has a black bracelet on her right hand. When she is upstairs crying, they are on opposite hands.
When the press cover the Halliwell's front garden, a view of them all there is shown, but it is not the real outside of the Manor. It's not even the outside of the set, it looks as if it's plastic - especially the windows.
Through the entire episode the simians Dr. Jeffries experimented on are called monkeys, when they are actually chimpanzees.
TRIVIA: This is a follow-up to an earlier episode in the same season Awakened, which took place 90 days before the events of this episode.
At the beginning of the episode, when Dr. Williamson is on the phone with his superior, it sounds as if he mispronounces Piper's name, calling her "Pipper" Halliwell.
Why was Piper so excessively upset over Dr. Williamson's death? In previous episodes, the losses of people presumably more important to her, such as Andy (a friend since childhood) and Aunt Gail (a close family-friend), have left Piper much less broken up.
You could clearly see Dr. Jeffries moving even though he was supposed to be frozen.
TRIVIA: In the scene when Piper grieves in her room because she couldn't avoid Dr. Williamson's death, the song playing is "Letting the Cables Sleep" performed by Bush. This episode also features Smash Mouth's song "Then The Morning Comes".
In this episode Phoebe tells Prue that Evan Stone is her perfect man, but she previously said in the earlier season 2 episode "Chick Flick" that Billy Appleby, a movie character, is.
TRIVIA: The Doctor who treated Piper also used 3 chimps to test the sisters' blood and each one had the same name & power as each sister: Prue chimp had telekinesis, Piper chimp had the freezing power, and Phoebe chimp had premonitions.
The Charmed Ones' powers did not make the chimps sick and/or insane most likely because they only received one power each. This theory can be supported by he fact that in the Season 8 episode Ordinary Witches, some of the Halliwells' neighbors receive their powers and do not feel any ill effects.
It's taken the Charmed Ones years to learn how to use their powers. So how did Dr. Williamson master them in a few days?
Leo says that the awakening spell changed everything so their powers could be passed on through their blood. In the season 2 episode "Awakened" they reversed the spell and made everything go back to the way it was.
Darryl: Tell me again I'm not hunting down some demonic son of a bitch.
Piper: Darryl, I told you when I called. He's a human being.
Darryl: With a supernatural talent for butchery. In the past 4 hours, this Doctor Williamson has drop off two more coolers at hospitals, and he's not bothering to stitch up his victims anymore.
Piper: He's killing people?
Darryl: Yes. Tell me where to find him.
Piper: I don't know.
Darryl>: We've staked out all the hospitals, but somehow he's getting in, dropping off his gifts and getting out without anybody seeing him. He's using your powers, isn't he?
Piper: … Yes, but we found a way to stop him.
Darryl: Not if I stop him first.
Piper: Darryl, don't kill him.
Darryl: Have you been listening to me? He may not give me a choice.
Piper (about Dr Williamson): His first name was Curtis. He never married because he was working all the time. Saving lives was more important to him than having a life of his own. Now his life is over and I can't help but feel responsible for that.
Phoebe: We tried to save him.
Piper: But we didn't.
Prue: Because we couldn't.
Piper: I couldn't.
Piper: Leo doesn't live here.
Phoebe: He eats breakfast here.
Piper: Uh huh.
Phoebe: A lot.
Piper: Maybe he just likes cereal.
Piper: (about Leo) You really think he's here that much?
Phoebe: He's like the big brother I never wanted... uh... I mean, had.
Leo orbs in on Phoebe who is kneeling in Piper's closet but Leo thinks it's Piper.
Leo: Ever done it on a cloud?
Phoebe: Does a featherbed count?
Prue: A monkey astral projected onto the set today.
Phoebe: A monkey?
Piper: Astral projected?
Prue: Yeah, and it waved at me, like it knew me or something. I think it wanted my help.
Phoebe: Honey, I think you're working way too hard.

This is the last episode written by Constance M. Burge.
Prue: I appreciate the whole "wax on, wax off" approach...
"Wax on, wax off" was one of Mr. Miyagi's training methods in the 1984 movie The Karate Kid starring Ralph Macchio, Pat Morita and Elizabeth Shue.
Phoebe: How much do I hate you right now? Unless of course the tabloid rumours are true. In which case I really hate you.
It is widely rumored that Alyssa Milano and Shannen Doherty did not get along, and this statement could have a double meaning.
Phoebe (to the monkeys): You guys, what do you think of evil?
(The first monkey covers its eyes, the second covers its ears and the third covers its mouth)
What the monkeys convey is that they "See No Evil, Hear No Evil and Speak No Evil". This is a reference to the popular saying which is believed to be originated from the Three Wise Monkeys.
Phoebe: I'll take premontion for 500, Alex.
This is a reference to the game show "Jeopardy" where the contestants ask the host, Alex Trebek, for one of the questions in a category for a certain amount of money.
Title: Astral Monkey
This is most likely a reference to Prue's power Astral Projection and what the sisters call her when using this power Astral Prue. Also because the monkey first seen was the one with Prue's power.
