Prudence 'Prue' Halliwell
Evil Triad Member #1
Penny 'Grams' Halliwell
TRIVIA: In the book store, the green book Phoebe is holding is The Giving Tree, a children's book written and illustrated by Shel Silverstein 1964.
At the beginning of the episode, when Piper is at the salon, there are two women reading bridal magazines while their hair dries. They are actresses Sara Rose Peterson (right) and Deeny Dakota (left) who portrayed Jade D'Mon/Hecate and Kirsten respectively in the Season 1 episode The Wedding from Hell. This could possibly be a hidden reference to both this and the aformentioned episode sharing a similar theme of magic getting in the way of love.
TRIVIA: This episode features Beth Hart's song Delicious Surprise and Bach's song Pachelbel's Cannon in D.
At the beginning when Piper walks in the door of the Manor, a boom mike can be seen briefly popping in at the top of the screen.
TRIVIA: This is the first time that Leo has been taken away from Piper.
Piper directed Christopher to Leo's freshly laundered clothes, but where did he get the shoes that he was wearing after he left the manor?
This will not be the last time the Sisters mention Grams' number of marriages. In fact the number changes very much in future episodes.
In the penultimate scene, in the demon bosses' office, the view outside the window shows a bright sunny day. However as there is an eclipse it should be dark outside.
TRIVIA: Phoebe states that Grams was married 4 times in this episode.
Prue said that when Phoebe was born she was three and Piper was one, but in the season 1 episode "That 70's Episode" Prue and Piper were clearly older than that.
When the boss (the demon who cast the curse) waves his hand at the computer monitor to magically change the display (the first time, after magically signing a document) from the business data into what looks like a sort of screensaver, the superimposed images of the screensaver exceed the monitor boundaries and can be seen superimposed on the plastic edges of the monitor too.
When the Charmed Ones are searching the forest for where Christoper encounters the wolf or coyote, there is a full moon in the sky. Later that day there is a solar eclipse. This is astronomically impossible. Solar eclipses occur only at new moons, and lunar eclipses only at full moons. It would be a matter of two weeks rather than a few hours between the full moon in the forest and the solar eclipse.
In the beginning of the episode, Piper closes the door of the car, but when the car with the new-married couple drives by, she closes the door again!
Grams: Don't worry, Piper, we will fix this!
Piper: (Sobbing uncontrollably) We-we have to!
Phoebe: An eclipse! Look... wait... no, don't look.
(Cole is at the front door)
Cole: 1329 Prescott Street. On the receipt. In the bag. It was there. That sounded much better in my head.
Phoebe: They gave you our books, and you thought you'd drop them by.
Cole: That wasn't so hard when you said it.
Cole: I actually need the ones I bought, so if you don't mind, I...
Phoebe: Of course you do...
Leo: They want an answer, Piper, about us. Either there isn't any us, or you guys get a new 'lighter. We have till tomorrow night to decide.
Piper: Tomorrow night? That's insane.
Leo: But there is door number three. We can try and pull this off
by tomorrow night. If we do, it's binding. They can't even break that apart.
Piper: Yeah, but if they find out, they can break us apart into a thousand little pieces.
Phoebe: Excuse me?
Piper: I believe the term he used was "Unspeakable wrath, the likes of which you can't even imagine".
Phoebe: Assistant District Attorney, we have to stop meeting like this.
Cole: You better be careful, a guy might think he's being followed.
Piper: You better be careful or a girl might think her sister is getting a really cheesy pick-up line.
Leo (about the wedding): Speak in code and especially avoid using words like, you know.
Leo: Dum, dum, da-dum.
Piper: Yes, but we have to find a way to hide the www... rutabaga before they catch on.
Prue The rutabaga?
Piper: It's a code word for the thing we're not supposed to talk about. (She hums the wedding march.)
Prue: Oh, the rutabaga.
Phoebe (to Grams): That's no fair. You have afterlife advantage.
Phoebe: I think that this looks like the place. Sort of.
Piper: That's funny, I remember it looking like the right place sort of three hours ago.
Phoebe: So we don't have to feel the (writes on chalkboard) unspeakable wrath!!!
Piper: I think that we can say those words, Phoebe.
Phoebe: I just thought that we would remember them more if I wrote them down!
Cole: I sort of got plans to accidentally bump into another eye witness over at the Gas 'N Sip's.
Piper (to Phoebe, using "rutabaga" instead of "wedding"): If you didn't think I should have a rutabaga, then you should have said so, maybe like a long time ago.
Piper: Hi. I don't want to interrupt the verbal ping-pong, but…
Piper: Kit leave that alone.
Phoebe (while Kit is scratching at an owl): Bad kitty.
The owl turns into a naked man.
Prue: Good kitty!
Grams: Logic and reason go out the window when love gets involved.
Grams: The Charmed Ones are destined for greatness, but that fact doesn't keep a girl warm on a cold winter's night.
Phoebe: So? Add a blanket.
Prue: Yeah, well, rules are meant to be broken.
Phoebe: Yeah, but bodies weren't.
Piper: And neither were hearts.
Prue: I know this isn't exactly how you wanted it.
Piper: No, but it's exactly what I wanted.
Phoebe: I don't get it. If our ancient compilation of spells, witchcrafts and rituals can't help us, what makes you think Martha Stewart can?
Grams: You need guidance, some advice on a certain sister situation. Am I getting warm?
Phoebe: Red hot. But wait a minute, if you know, that means that they know, and if they know then we are f...
Prue: Alright, maybe you're not getting your dream wedding but you are getting your dream guy.
Piper sighs. Leo orbs in.
Phoebe (shouting): Leo!
Phoebe (whispering): Leo.
Phoebe: If I had a dollar for every time an owl turned into a hot guy on our porch, I'd be r... (Piper covers Phoebe's mouth)

Title: Magic Hour
Magic Hour is the supposedly magic times of twilight before dawn and after sunset.
Piper: I could swear I'd seen this in a movie before.
This is a reference to the movie, "Ladyhawke", starring Michelle Pfeiffer and Rutger Hauer as cursed lovers. He is a man by day and a wolf by night, while she is a hawk by day and a woman by night so they can never be together as humans.
