Prudence 'Prue' Halliwell
Inspector Andy Trudeau
The spell to switch powers with someone is: What's Mine is Yours,
What's Yours is Mine
Let our powers cross the line
I offer up my gift to share
Switch our powers through the air.
In the bathroom scene, when Prue tries to shoot Alec with the crossbow, it goes through him and into the wall behind him. In the next shot, as he orb's away, there is clearly no arrow in the wall behind him.
TRIVIA: This is the first time that the Charmed Ones go up against an evil being (Alec) who has fallen in love with a good woman. He is also not the last, as future episodes include similar love stories with the warlock Anton, Drasi the Demon of Hate, Cole and the Necromancer.
In this episode Leo tells the sisters not to touch the darklighters arrow because the poison will kill them. However in future episodes Paige (and probably Piper while pregnant) is the only sister who can not touch the arrow because it is only poisonous to whitelighters.
When asked why he can't heal himself, Leo says that whitelighters can't heal themselves but that's not entirely true. Only when injured with a darklighter's arrow can whitelighters not heal themselves. For instance, in the season 4 episode "Saving Private Leo", Leo heals immediately after being stabbed with a knife.
Leo orbs to the Charmed ones' house for security, but why wouldn't he just orb 'up there' and have one of the many whitelighters heal him?
At the end when Prue and Phoebe use the spell to switch powers it seems strange that they don't get mixed up this time. At the beginning when Piper is trying save Leo, everything gets exchanged, not just hers and Leo's, yet Prue seems able to switch hers and Alec's back and forth at will. Unless Phoebe may not have switched powers, because she was covering her ears.
If Leo and Piper switched powers, then why isn't Piper hearing voices of the folks Leo is watching over? She does when the unborn baby switches their powers in a later season.
In the beginning of the episode Leo orbs in plain sight - isn't he worried about magic being exposed?
In other episodes, when any whitelighter is hit with an arrow, they can't orb but Leo can in this one. For example, in the season 8 episode "The Jung and Restless" Paige is hit with two arrows and she can't orb - if she could, she would have orbed home.
TRIVIA: Featured music in this episode -
-Human by The Pretenders
-Human (On the Inside) by Nine Inch Nails
When Phoebe catches Piper switching powers with Leo Piper says "Leo can't heal himself but maybe with his powers I can" and she clasps her hands, but in the next shot her hands are on her hips.
TRIVIA: Prue calls Grams "Grandma" in this episode. This is the second time Prue has called her that, the first time being in the earlier season 1 episode "That 70's Episode".
TRIVIA: Piper and Prue learn that Leo is a whitelighter in this episode.
In other episodes, it is mentioned that Leo can't heal the dead, yet Piper after switching powers with him, healed him even though he was dead.
Prue never finishes the power switching spell when she's killing the darklighter - yet somehow, it worked.
Rodriguez (about Andy): He's covering for Prue Halliwell.
Anderson: How do you know? (turns and sees Rodriguez' eyes blood red) Oh my God! (Anderson screams)
Andy (witnessing a darklighter orb out of the window): What the hell was that?
Prue: Welcome to my world.
Daisy: Oh God, he found me again.
Phoebe: How do you know?
Daisy: That's what he does, he sends me flowers so I know he's watching.
(Phoebe reads the note.)
Phoebe: No, honey, these are for Prue.
Prue: They're from Andy, he needs to see me right away.
Phoebe: Something wrong with his phone?
Prue: It's a long story but I can't leave you guys.
Phoebe: No, Prue, we'll go up and check on Leo and, remember, I'm the one with the active power now. Go.
Prue: Are you sure?
Phoebe: Yes, absolutely, we'll be fine. Let's go check on Leo.
Daisy: Excuse me. Where can I find bus 24?
(The guy turns around and it's Alec.)
Alec: I told you I'll always be there for you, Daisy.
(She walks off quickly and bumps into a man.)
Daisy: I'm sorry. (The man turns around and it's Alec again.)
Alec: It's quite all right. I'm in no hurry. I've got forever. You care to join me?
Piper: I have looked everywhere in this damn book for something, anything to help Leo and I can't. What's that face? What's the matter?
Phoebe: Leo's in pretty bad shape, Piper. And he's getting worse.
Piper: I know, that's why I need to find an ointment or a cure or something.
Phoebe: You need to listen. This is really hard to say but I think you need to hear it. I think that you need to learn to accept the possibility that... maybe we're not supposed to save Leo. Maybe he's not our innocent. Maybe we're only meant to save Daisy.
Piper: We have to save him whether we're meant to or not.
Phoebe: Leo, I brought you some food in case you're... you do eat, right?
Leo: Yes, Phoebe, I eat. How's Piper?
Phoebe: Oh, you know, she's dealing. I mean, it's not every day that you find out that the guy you're seeing isn't human. Although, in Piper's case...
Leo: I wish she didn't have to find out about me like this. Being with her broke the rules but not being with her breaks my heart.
Phoebe: You know, Leo, it's not like we rushed to tell you that we're witches. I think Piper understands about those little secrets that we have to keep.
Leo: Any word on Daisy?
Phoebe: Yes and no. Prue called. Andy thinks he found out where Daisy's staying. They're on their way now. (She pulls off his bandage.) Oh, I'm sorry, I'm sorry.
Leo: It's okay, I know it's bad.
Phoebe: I guess I need to work on my poker face a little bit, huh? You know Leo, didn't you tell me that Whitelighters have the ability to heal? Why can't you just...
Leo: No, my powers are for others, I can't use it on myself.
Phoebe: Ah, you know, we just gotta get you better. Then you and Piper will have lots of time to talk about stuff when you're well.
Leo: Phoebe, I'm not going to get better.
Phoebe: That's ridiculous, Leo, of course you will, we're just gonna have to find something in the Book of Shadows.
Leo: No, the Darklighter's poison can't be reversed. It's meant to kill Whitelighters. That's what it's doing, it's working it's way through my system. It's just a matter of time.
Phoebe: How much time?
Leo: Not much. I'm gonna die and there's nothing you can do about it. My power is ebbing. With it, my ability to cloak Daisy.
Phoebe: We're gonna save you both, Leo.
Prue: Andy, what's going on?
Andy: Internal Affairs is looking into all my unsolved cases. All the ones that involve the supernatural.
Prue: All the cases that involve me. Do you think that they followed you here?
Andy: I wouldn't put it past them.
Prue: Andy, if we... if I, put you in this situation.
Andy: I put me here, Prue.
Prue: Yeah, but you had help. Can they force you to tell them?
Andy: About you? I won't. But we have to be careful about being seen together. It has to look like we're still... friends.
Prue: Andy, we are still friends. We always will be.
Andy: Are you sure I'm not just someone who's keeping your secret, Prue?
Prue: You know me better than that. I'm glad I told you, I am.
Andy: So am I. Now when you need me all you have to do is ask.
Prue: Well, I'm asking. I need to find someone, she's in danger and I have to get to her before he does.
Andy: He? You know what, I don't need to know. Specifics always get me in trouble. Where was the last time she was seen?
Prue: Headed to her rental car outside a mini-mart.
Andy: Well, we can get the security camera from the mini-mart and surrounding businesses. See if we can get the car's license plates and see if it leads us to where she's staying.
Morris: You enjoying this as much as I am?
Andy: What's that?
Morris: The silent treatment and the cold shoulder.
Andy: I know, it's been a week since Internal Affairs has made a move. What are they waiting for?
Morris: I'm not talking about I.A., I'm talking about you and me.
Andy: I got no problems.
Morris: That makes one of us. I.A. is on our ass and I still don't know why, but I'm pretty damn sure you do. You feel like sharing?
(The phone rings)
Andy: Homicide, Trudeau.
Prue: Andy, hi. I...
Andy: Hey, Franklin. How are things in Forensics?
Prue: You can't talk.
Andy: No, actually. Why don't you have it checked out by the F.B.I. lab?
Prue: Andy, I really need your help, it's important. Quake?
Andy: Okay, I'll be there.
Morris: Franklin's wife had a baby girl yesterday. Took a week off. Did he call you from the maternity ward? You don't wanna tell me what's going on, fine. Just don't lie to me, okay, partner?
Phoebe: How long have I been after you to find some new male blood? Preferably tan and buff.
Prue: With limited verbal skills.
Prue & Phoebe: No strings attached.
Prue: Okay, I brought everything that I could find, I just didn't know what to use on a... what is he again?
Piper: A whitelighter.
Phoebe: Yeah, they're sort of like... You know how Peter Pan has Tinkerbell? They're sort of like that minus the tutu and the wings. He guides witches.
Prue: A couple of dates not picking up the check, that's a slump. This is more like a sucking void.
(The Darklighter crossbow & arrow appear in Alec's hands.)
Alec: I've never used this on a witch before.
Prue: Oh, Grandma's car, fender dented, you got blamed for it, I did it!
(Phoebe makes Alec fly into a cubicle.)
Phoebe: I got grounded for that, Prue.
(Prue picks up the crossbow.)
Prue: I've never used this on a Darklighter before.
Phoebe (to Prue about her premonitions): Okay, you know, you guys take for granted that I'm your innocent yellow pages. Okay, this takes work.
Phoebe: Okay, it's not that easy to break me.
Prue: What was it in high school that the guys started calling you after they caught you making out with someone under the bleachers?
Phoebe: It's not gonna work.
Prue: What was that? Oh yeah, Freebie! (the magazines on a rack spin around and fall off). Well, class over.
Phoebe: You know that was just a rumor, right?
Piper: What's mine is yours, what's yours is mine... let our powers cross the line...
Phoebe: What's this? I hear rhyming.
Phoebe: I can't believe you're wearing your bikini on the plane.
Prue: Time saver.
Phoebe: I know, but you're making me look frumpy. It's like a sign of the apocalypse.
International Episode Titles:
Czech Republic: Láska je zlá (Love Is Mean)
France: L'ultime combat (The ultimate battle)
Michael Trucco (Alec) previously appeared in four episodes of the Aaron Spelling produced series Beverly Hills 90210 (which also starred Shannen Doherty for the first four years) as Noah's brother Josh Hunter, who raped Valerie.
This episode scored 5.7 million viewers.
Phoebe: Great, generation 666.
In the Bible, the Book of Revelation (13:17-18) cryptically asserts 666 to be "the number of a man", associated with the beast, an antagonistic creature that appears briefly about two-thirds into the apocalyptic vision. In modern popular culture, 666 has become one of the most widely recognized symbols for Satan or the Devil. Earnest references to 666 occur both among apocalypticist Christian groups and in explicitly anti-Christian subcultures such as that surrounding some heavy metal bands; more humorous allusions to the 666 symbolism are mainstream. An appearance of the number 666 in contemporary Western art or literature is more likely than not a conscious reference to this number of the Beast symbolism.
Prue: Okay, so that spell switched all of our powers.
Piper: Am I going to get yelled at?
Phoebe: It's a supernatural Freaky Friday.
This is a reference to the 1976 movie Freaky Friday in which a mother and daughter with many conflicts gets to see how the other lives for a day when they switch bodies. It was later remade into a 1995 TV movie and a 2003 feature film.
TItle: Love Hurts
This is a reference to a common saying, that basically states the obvious.
Phoebe: Stella, we are getting our groove back.
This is a reference to the 1998 movie How Stella Got Her Groove Back starring Angela Bassett.
Phoebe compares whitelighters to Tinkerbell from "Peter Pan", but "minus the tutu and wings".
Tinkerbell is a fairy from the popular children's book "Peter Pan", which has many movie and book adaptations. She watches over Peter, much like whitelighters watch over their charges.
