Season 4 Episode 3

Hell Hath No Fury

Aired Sunday 8:00 PM Oct 11, 2001 on The WB



  • Trivia

    • Goof: At the end of the episode, at Prue's crypt site, the bottom scratch on Paige's neck is just to the right side of her trachea. When they cut to Paige's desk, the scars are on the left side of her throat. The scratches moved well over 3 inches to the left.

    • TRIVIA: The Vanishing Spell is used for the first time in this episode. Paige uses it to clear up the skin of a friend. It is used in later episodes by each sister. Let the Object of Objection Become but a Dream As I cause the Seen To be Unseen.

      This would effectively become "Paige's spell" as she uses it again in Charmed and Dangerous, Womb Raider, and Sand Francisco Dreamin.

    • When Phoebe levitates and kicks two furies at once, the shot has a stunt double performing instead of Alyssa Milano, and she looks nothing like Alyssa Milano.

    • When Phoebe is trying to reverse Paige's backfired spell she asks Paige what word she switched demon with, but a glance at the book, the word demon is not in the karma spell, which is the spell she used.

    • When Leo and Cole are discussing Piper's irrationality, Cole compares her to Charles Bronson, who Phoebe than asks who Charles Bronson is. However, she should know since in season 2, while on a triple date with her sisters, they went to see a Bronson film, which we know because they talk about going to see his next film Death Wish.

    • When Phoebe is lecturing Piper about her reckless need to seek out evil, she says that they have a system for fighting evil that has worked for many years. However, she seems to forget the multiple occasions that Prue sought out evil in similar ways (Sight Unseen, Sin Francisco)

    • TRIVIA: This is the 6th time that one of the sisters has turned evil.

    • When Billy turns around after Paige says the spell, you can see that he still has a hint of lipstick on his cheek from previous takes.

    • If the Book of Shadows was written by witches that fought the demons, and they have learned that demons come back, why was Piper marking off the demons that they fought? Didn't she think that they would come back?

    • Why does Phoebe tell Piper to unfreeze Cole? She should know that if she moves Cole, he will unfreeze. We have seen it clearly in some episodes, for example Coyote Piper, and Paige does it in the episode when Piper is drunk and she freezes Leo.

    • TRIVIA: This is the first time shown that Piper blows up Leo. In the future she will do it again several times - in the episode House Call and The Bare Witch Project.

    • After Paige throws the Book of Shadows out the window, she goes downstairs with Phoebe, says goodbye and leaves. The next scene is one with Piper and Leo in their bedroom fighting. Despite the fact that we see that the door is open and the room is next to the stairs, we cannot see them fight or talk in Paige and Phoebe's scene.

    • When Phoebe was talking to Paige and Cole at the table, she mentioned when she was possessed by the Woogy and Cole seemed suprised. Yet in the episode Sight Unseen, when Cole is talking to the Triad, they mention that they had given him 2 years of information to use against the sisters. If they had given him that much information on them, wouldn't he have know about her being possessed by the Woogy?

    • When Paige drops the Book of Shadows out of the attic window, she leaves it open but when Phoebe and Cole rush into the attic to join Piper, the window is now closed. However, when Phoebe points at the window, it is again open.

    • TRIVIA: Paige uses the Book of Shadows for personal gain and finds out that there are consequences.

    • When Piper freezes the mob of women harassing the guy outside the Social Services building in broad daylight, shouldn't they have been worried about exposure? Especially since they saw what happened last time they were careless and exposed.

    • TRIVIA: Cole first learns about the Woogyman and Nexus from the season 1 episode "Is There A Woogy In The House?" in this episode, and he uses this information against Phoebe in the season 5 episode"The Importance of Being Phoebe".

    • TRIVIA: This is the first time that Piper refers to Paige as her sister.

    • When Paige and Phoebe are driving back to the manor from the Social Services building, the book Phoebe is flipping through is supposed to be the Book of Shadows, and yet it's blank.

    • The South Bay Social Services building looks an awful lot like the dating service building from the season 2 episode "She's a Man Baby, A Man".

    • When Piper grabs Paige at the end (just before Leo orbs them to the mausoleum), Piper has her hand on Paige's throat. As Leo starts to orb them, her hand in on Paige's face.

    • When Phoebe and Piper find Paige in the parking lot of the Social Services building, Phoebe's hair is wavy and bouncy. Then when she and Paige are in the car, it's straight and flat. Once they get back to the house, it's wavy and bouncy again.

  • Quotes

    • Paige: I'm not the one you're mad at. I'm not the one who abandoned you. It's Prue. (Piper ties to leave the mosoleum) When my parents died, I hated them for it! It's okay to hate Prue!

    • Phoebe (describing a Banshee): Kinda trampy, feeds on pain.

    • Fury Piper (hearing her sisters' call with Cole as bait): I know where evil dwells.

    • Phoebe: If its anything like the time she became a Wendigo...
      Paige: A Wendi-what?
      Phoebe: A Wendigo... it's... kind of like a werewolf, only meaner.

    • Paige: Let the object of objection become but a dream, as I cause the seen to become unseen.

    • Paige (to Piper): Well... not to be difficult, but you're married to our Whitelighter and Phoebe's shacking up with a demon, so on balanace, do you think my friend could stay cute?

    • Phoebe: Paige, we are not using the love of my life as bait.
      Cole (gleefully): Oh, yes we are. It's perfect.
      Phoebe: Cole, you have been a demon for over a century. That is a lot of victims. The pain of their cries alone can kill you.
      Cole: Yes, but as you said, I'm not the demon who did those things anymore. And if facing my crimes helps save your sister …
      Phoebe: Cole, I ...
      Cole: Phoebe, I would do almost anything for you, you know that. But I will not be a coward for you. Please don't ask me to be.
      (Phoebe gazes at Cole tenderly and caresses his face)
      Phoebe: We'll need some of your blood.
      Cole: Right.

    • Piper (starts towards Paige but turns to Prue's grave): How dare you! How dare you leave me! How dare you go and die and leave me here all alone. Please come back. I need you, please come back. (she screams)

    • Phoebe: Powers that be, annul this magic. Let it be.
      Paige: Please, please let it be...
      (Paige's chest shrinks back to normal, she looks at it)
      Paige: You think that worked a little too well?

    • Piper (to Paige): You are so (Piper pulls Paige's jacket over to revel Paige's new chest size) busted!
      Phoebe: Hello!
      Piper: You stole our secret book so you perform magical plastic surgery on yourself!

    • Paige: He's cute isn't he? Should have seen him yesterday!

    • Piper: It's hard to imagine opening up to someone else. With everything that's happening in our lives, love just feels like an invitation for more pain.
      Phoebe: Maybe you don't start with love. Maybe you just start with thanks.

    • Paige: Lamp! (She orbs the lamp to her, throws it at the furie and the furie turns around) Really sorry! Sorry! Really sorry!

    • Phoebe (reading from the Book of Shadows): Demons, oh my God.
      Paige: What? You can't say demons followed by "oh my God" - I'm new at this, I'm likely to panic.

    • Cole: Do you have a plan, or are you still freezing and blowing up at random?
      Piper: Random, but you know what they say there's nothing like field practice!

    • Slimeball Lawyer (in a seductive voice): You know Paige, as a lawyer, I could get those nasty creditors off your back so easily; and if you can't afford to pay me, I could always take it out in trade...
      Paige: Or I could just sue your ass for sexual harassment and pay you with my big, fat, punitive settlement.

    • (Piper storms off after finding out that Paige has stolen the Book of Shadows)
      Phoebe: Are you coming?
      Cole (sarcastically): To vanquish your sister? I think I'll sit this one out.

    • Piper: Phoebe, the demon is not waiting around for us to come and vanquish him.

    • Piper, Phoebe and Cole are in the car. Cole's driving.
      Piper (to Cole): Okay, turn left up here. And can you step on the gas a little?
      Cole screeches around the corner, nearly hitting a taxi. Phoebe lets out a yelp, and the taxi driver honks his horn.
      Phoebe: Off the gas! Off the gas!
      She pats him on the shoulder.
      Cole: Does somebody else want to drive here?

    • Mr. Cowan (to Paige): My, my, my. That pile looks about the same size as it did about an hour ago.
      Piper: Oh, that was my fault. I distracted her with muffins.
      Mr. Cowan: And you are?
      Piper: I'm her sister.

    • Piper: Paige, there are rules to being a witch, rules that you will have to learn and follow.
      Paige: Well, not to be difficult, but... you're married to our Whitelighter and Phoebe's shacking up with a demon. So, on balance, maybe my friend could stay cute?

    • Piper: So, how scary was I?
      Phoebe: Heck, I've seen worse. I've been worse.

    • Cole (about Piper): She's Charles Bronson cubed.
      Leo: I said I'd talk to her.
      Phoebe stands in between the two.
      Phoebe: Guys, guys. Who's Charles Bronson?

    • Cole (about whoever's at the door): If it's the Source, I'll just ask him to come back later.

    • Cole: I'm good at a lot of things. Waiting is not one of them.

    • Phoebe: Piper, Cole's right. We have a system for fighting demons and it's worked pretty well for the last three years.
      Piper: I think, uh, Prue being killed counts as a pretty big glitch in the system.

    • Phoebe: Did you cast any spells?
      Paige: One...five...

  • Allusions

    • Cole: She has no regard for her own life or anyone else's. She's Charles Bronson cubed.

      Charles Bronson is an American actor most known for his tough guy roles. In most of his roles he starred as a brutal police detective, a western gunfighter, vigilante, boxer or a Mafia hitman. He was blunt, physically powerful, and had a look of danger well-suited to such roles.

    • Phoebe: Every Tom, Dick, and Beelzebub.

      Beelzebub is another name for the devil and the phrase "Every Tom, Dick and Harry" is used as a way to say "Every guy".

    • Phoebe: Okay, what did you do just before you turned into Betty Boop?

      This is a reference to the famous cartoon character
      "Betty Boop"
      , known for her sexy appearance.

    • Title: Hell Hath No Fury

      "Hell Hath no fury like a woman scorned" is a famous line from William Congreve's play, The Mourning Bride. Ironically the line is used in Kevin Smith's film Mallrats, Brodie says "Hell hath no fury like a woman's scorn for Sega" to explain why he was dumped by Renee, played by Shannen Doherty.

    • Title: Hell Hath No Fury

      The title is from a poem, "The Mourning Bride" by William Congreve:
      "Heaven has no rage like love to hatred turned,
      Nor hell a fury like a woman scorned."
