When Piper freezes the room, in the beginning of the episode, the clock also freezes, but in That 70's Episode, when Piper freezes Nicholas, the clock doesn't freeze and Nicholas knows they got their powers, when he only hears 5 chimes, instead of 12.
TRIVIA: In this episode Cole created the biggest energy ball in the Charmed universe.
When Phoebe and Piper are discussing Piper having children, Phoebe mentions the little girl they saw in the future. However, Phoebe never saw the little girl because she was in prison awaiting execution during that trip. So what she should've said was the child Piper saw in the future!
TRIVIA: In this episode Cole whistles to get the sisters attention. This is later used in the season 8 episode "Malice in Wonderland" where Piper whistles to get the other two to listen when they keep obsessing.
When Piper is visited by her friends in the "hospital", one of them says she had her baby shortly after the baby shower and reminds Piper that she was at that shower. If Piper has been in the "hospital" for more than three years, how could she go to a baby shower? She could have noticed that the Source made a huge logical mistake here.
TRIVIA: This is the second time Piper has been put into a coma. The first time was in the season 2 episode "Awakened".
At the end when Leo, Phoebe, and Paige are trying to convince Piper who they really are, Leo keeps moving. In one camera angle Leo is standing up and hunched over in front of Piper. In another angle he is kneeling down next to Piper.
It was said in the season 1 episode "Wicca Envy" that all the sisters had to say the spell for their powers to be relinquished. In this episode Piper should not have been able to get rid of all their powers if it was only her saying the spell. - Also, isn't she really just "inside" her own mind, so saying the words would actually just be the same as thinking them... What harm would that do?
When the girls run up to the attic, Piper hits the "demon" with the broomstick. After she hits him the broomstick is still perfectly in tact, but in the next shot, Piper is only holding the bottom half of the broom in her hand.
When Piper was hit by the car, she had been injured on the left side of her face, but when she's shown again in the underworld, the injury is on the right side of her face.
Phoebe: Um, Piper, remember when you told me to tell you when you're obsessing.
Piper: I'm not obsessing. I just want everything perfect, that's all.
(Piper blows up a mysterious seat in the living room)
Phoebe: Uhm that was Paige's chair.
Piper: I know. I just hated it.
(Piper knocks an orderly to the ground with Phoebe's broomstick)
Phoebe: Boy, he sure flew.
(Cole is being tested and is screaming)
Cole: You can't hurt me! I'm the mighty Belthazor! Yah!
(At Halliwell Hospital)
Alastair: There are no demons. They're just figments of your imagination.
Piper: Want to bet?
Evil hiding in plain sight,
I use this spell with all my might,
to stop your changing form and shape,
this vanquish seals your fate.
Orderly: Doesn't really rhyme, does it.
(Cole and Phoebe run upstairs, and Piper and Leo are hugging)
Paige: Okay, and I'm just gonna go to the store and get some milk, or something.
Cole: Why, Ms. Halliwell, are you trying to seduce me?
Phoebe (seemingly having a premonition): Ahh!
Piper: What? What is it? What did you see?
Phoebe: I saw the back of my eyelids, what do you think I saw?
Piper: Are you really my husband?
Piper: Then that would make you really my sisters?
Phoebe: Whether you like it or not!
Piper: Let go of me so I can blow him up. I'm gonna blow you up!
Paige (to Piper and Phoebe): I don't know about you guys, but I'm getting a not-so-good feeling about this.
Piper: Who knows? Maybe someday I could be having a baby shower of my own...what do you think?
Leo: Well in that case I think we need to practice a little. (Leo picks up Piper)
Paige: Hurry up, looney tunes, get me outta here.
Paige: What the hell happened?
Piper: The freakin' furniture just attacked!
Phoebe: Generations of Halliwells fought demons and had kids. It didn't stop them, why should it stop you?
Piper: Did it ever occur to you that maybe this is none of your business?
Phoebe: Oh, that's besides the point.
Phoebe: You're changing the subject.
Piper: No, I'm ignoring you.
(In Piper's mind, they're in a garden with clean-cut grass, and flowers everywhere. Phoebe and Paige arrive after saying a spell)
Phoebe: I think it worked.
Paige (when a red and blue butterfly flies past her): Either that or we're in Mary Poppins' head.
(Piper takes the broom and hits the doctor over the head. He falls back onto some chairs)
Paige: Mmm...well he sure flew.
Piper: What are you eating?
Phoebe: Chocolate chip cookie, not your best.
Paige: Got milk? Ooh don't think so.
Phoebe: Sorry...had to grab my broom.
Piper: For what?
Phoebe: Well for flying, silly.
