  • Trivia

    • When Imara was in Phoebe's body, how was it that she was able to touch the Book of Shadows?

    • In the opening scene, Mitchell buys a hot dog from a stand, walks eight paces down the street then throws it straight into a bin!

    • TRIVIA: The song playing at P3 at the end of this episode is Me Against the World by Simple Plan.

    • When Piper, Leo, and Phoebe (secretly Imara in disguise) are upstairs near the Book of Shadows, Phoebe is talking (the view is from behind) but her lips are not moving.

    • Elise says Phoebe never had troubles with "Ask Phoebe" before, yet in season 5 Phoebe was being sued for bad advice due to her divorce with Cole Turner.

    • TRIVIA: In this episode Imara and Phoebe switch bodies. Other episodes that involve switching bodies are "Pardon My Past", "Enter the Demon",and "The Lost Picture Show".

    • If Phoebe's hair was in a bun, how did Mitchell cut a long strand of her hair?

    • TRIVIA: This is one of four episodes with "Phoebe" in the title. However, there is only one episode with "Paige" in the title, one with "Prue" and two with "Piper".

    • If Piper knew that Phoebe was dead why wasn't she sad or crying?

    • TRIVIA: In this episode, Paige gets her first official charge as a Whitelighter and with guidance from Leo, she persuades him not to give up using his powers. Also, Phoebe decides to go back to college, again, in order to get her degree in psychology.

    • TRIVIA: Paige now makes her morphing a regular thing and uses it as if it were a new power in this episode. She morphs for the fifth time, into an innocent woman who crashed her car.

    • Why didn't Phoebe in Imara's body get shocked by the force field when she pretended to fall in the cage and grabbed the bars?

    • After Piper freezes everyone in the councilman's office and then vanquishes him, Piper and Imara/Phoebe leave instead of returning to their positions before freezing the room. To the people who were frozen, it would appear that Piper and Phoebe just vanish into thin air. How come the video camera didn't catch that and wouldn't this expose magic?

    • At the club when the demon attacks Piper holds up both hands. From a shot of her back you can see that she puts up her right hand and points at the demon. When the angle changes to the front of her hands are still both up and she points at the demon again.

    • Paige repeatedly says that this is her first charge, but actually she already had a charge, her biological father, Sam. While it was not an actual charge she was given almost the exact same speech (word for word) when she tried to help the future whitelighter in the episode "Siren Song".

    • If the demon wanted to check to see if she was really Imara or Phoebe - why didn't he simply ask her a question only Imara would know?

  • Quotes

    • Paige: Surprise.
      Mitchell: What the hell? (As he realizes he was tricked) What are you doing? Are you out of your mind?
      Paige: Look. I'm just trying to show you that your powers can save lives. You didn't have to save mine, but you could have if you had to.
      Mitchell: So you tricked me?
      Paige: Technically.
      (Mitchell nods)
      Paige: Here's the thing - I'm trying to remind you of what your powers can do, and why you can't just walk away from a gift like that.
      Mitchell: The hell I can't.
      Paige: Mitchell, please-
      Mitchell: You don't know me. You don't know me at all. (storms out)
      Paige: Could someone tell me why I'm trying to help this person?

    • Imara (disguised as Phoebe; after Piper threw a potion and vanguished Daleek): Wow, that was awesome. What was in that?

    • Piper: What the hell's gotten into you?
      Imara (as Phoebe): What do you mean?
      Piper: What do I mean? You're walking around like a crazy person. That is, when you're not stopping to check yourself out in every shiny surface you walk past.

    • Paige (about P3): How'd you fix up this place? Potions? Spells?
      Piper: Better. Husband.

    • Imara (disguised as Phoebe & after her underling is killed): Damn. That was my favorite minion.

    • Imara (disguised as Phoebe): Aren't you cold?
      Piper: No, but then again, I actually have clothes on.
      Imara (disguised as Phoebe): Yeah, I know, it's kind of skimpy, but it's just so cute I can't help myself.

    • Imara as Phoebe: Who cares? With a face like this, I can be bald and look great.

    • Leo: You crashed your car?
      Paige: It was a rental! I got the insurance…

    • Leo: You were attacked?
      Piper: Yeah, I'm working on that not happening as much.

    • Phoebe: You want me to live a life too, don't you?
      Piper: Yeah. I guess.

    • Piper: Well, I'm alive – which the demons won't be when I'm done with them.

    • Paige: That guy Mitchell blew me off. (Piper looks surprised, as though Paige had a date.) My charge!
      Piper: Oh.
      Paige: Oh? That's all you have for me is oh?

    • Paige (to Mitchell): I am a Charmed One, I ran Magic School for a year, and I'm a whitelighter. Hello, triple threat - where are you gonna find someone with that kind of experience?

    • Phoebe: Lawyers! There should be a special place in Hell for each and every one of them.

    • The elevator doors open to Phoebe pulling the scissors out of the wall. She turns and there's a woman looking at her strangely.
      Phoebe: It's my favorite scissors. I knew I left them somewhere.

    • Phoebe (about Mitchell): He's cute!
      Piper & Paige: She's back!
