  • Trivia

    • TRIVIA: The opening song is I'm Not Dead

    • TRIVIA: This is the last of 24 episodes with "witch" in the title. There are also 3 with "wicca", 6 with "demon" and 1 each with "wizard" and "warlock".

    • TRIVIA: This is not the first time Phoebe has fallen for a Cupid. In the episode Heartbreak City she fell for and even kissed a different Cupid while helping him fight Drasi, The Demon of Hate.

    • How would it be possible to show a hologram about Wyatt and Chris if that future was already been deleted? Demons didn't know that Wyatt was going to be evil, only the family did, and that would've been impossible for them to know that.

    • TRIVIA: This is the second time Phoebe gets hit with the sin of lust - the first time was in the season 3 episode "Sin Francisco".

    • Instead of running near the book when Billie and Christy threw the fireball at it, why didn't Paige just call the book to her and then just orb out. It would have been a lot less dangerous than running near the book and getting themselves killed.

    • The colours on the rainbow (which the leprechauns use to travel) are actually the wrong way round - the colour red is actually on the outermost side of the rainbow with the violet being on the inside.

    • In the season 4 episode "Lost and Bound" Grams' ring didn't take effect immediately when it was put on Phoebe, it was a gradual change. Yet within seconds that it's put on Piper's finger it transforms her instantly and gives her powers. Also, Phoebe turned to black and white when under influence of the ring, whereas Piper keeps her normal color.

    • In the beginning of the episode when the Charmed Ones find the hologram-table at magic school they just ignore it, despite commenting that it was not there before. Would the Charmed Ones really ignore something that significant?

    • Despite Jason & Kristopher Simmons (Wyatt Halliwell) being listed in the end credits, they did not make an actual appearance in this episode.

    • TRIVIA: The spells cast to make the sisters look bad are from previous episodes - the one cast on Paige is from the season 5 episode "House Call", the Sin of Lust used on Phoebe is from the season 3 episode "Sin Francisco" and the one used on Piper, using Grams' ring, is from the season 4 episode "Lost and Bound".

    • TRIVIA: Christy and Dumain show Billie a hologram of future Wyatt and Chris, from the season 6 episode "Chris-Crossed" where Wyatt is evil, in order to convince her that the Charmed Ones are evil.

    • TRIVIA: Phoebe admits to her sisters and then later to Coop, that she wants him and only him, even though it's against the rules.

  • Quotes

    • Billie: I'm sick of all this destiny crap!

    • Leprechaun 1: We're leprechauns we toss a bit of luck about here or there, these big battles, well, they're really more up your alley.
      Paige: This fight affects us all.
      Leprechaun 2: Oh, still like he said, we're not much for the fightin'. It might be better if we sit this one out.
      Paige: Well, if the balance of power shifts, you're going to be doing an awful lot of sitting here cause there's going to be nobody to protect you from all that evil. Look, I came to you guys first because you're smart, you're cunning, brave.
      Leprechaun 1: Good looking.
      Paige: You're damn good looking, I mean that's for sure. But hey. If you don't want to help me stop the ultimate power that's okay, I'll just uh I'll just go ask the gnomes.
      Leprechaun 1: What? The gnomes are idiots! You can't trust them any further than you can throw them. (pauses) We'll do it, but we don't like it!

    • Phoebe: Since we can't go back to Magic School because it's not safe for us, I compiled a little list here of all the good magical creatures that have helped us in the past.
      Paige: Why are leprechauns on the top of the list?
      Phoebe: Well, because they have luck, and we need luck.
      Piper: Yeah, but isn't that like throwing them into the lion's den?
      Phoebe: No, I mean, it has to do with them too. It's good versus evil you know? It affects all of us.
      Paige: What happened in my life that I wound up having to talk to leprechauns so much?
      Phoebe: I'm sorry... (Piper and Phoebe snicker) but you know them best.

    • Phoebe: Wait, so there are demons up there and we're stuck in the underworld?!
      Piper: We're the bad guys now.
      Paige: Well how did that happen?
      Piper: Well, more importantly, what are we gonna do now?

    • (Fairy guy reduced to ashes after being attacked by a demon's fireball)
      Piper: That's just awful! I just vacuumed there!

    • Phoebe: Oh God...I know I know! It's forbidden love and I'm doomed and...and...and we're doomed and everything's doomed!
      Piper: That about sums it up.

    • Paige: I can't believe I got up early on my husband's day off for this.
      Phoebe: Stop complaining, we're getting close.
      Piper: Close to what? Getting killed?
      Phoebe: We scry for evil and it was here!
      Piper: Yeah, because their names are Christy and Billie!

    • Phoebe (referring to Coop): One minute we were talking and the next minute I was attacking him.
      Paige: Magically?
      Phoebe: No, sexually.
