Ronan the Darklighter
In this episode, it's shown that after "riding off into the sunset with Patty" that the Elders reinstated his whitelighter status. Why would Sam, who had clipped his wings and spent years mourning Patty, have agreed to leave her and the afterlife to go back to being a whitelighter anyway?
As Cole is being vanquished it's visible between shots how the lights are on and then off. In the exterior shots the lights are off and in the interior shots they are on.
When Cole is vanquished, the windows explode. This exact same shot was also used in a vanquish scene in a season 4 episode.
When Paige and Sam orb into the Manor as they are running away from the darklighter, they are shown running right after orbing. But this makes no sense since in previous episodes it's been shown that after orbing there is no speed. For example in the episode Siren Song Paige is orbing with Piper after she fell but after orbing they were not at the same speed.
When The Flaming Lips are playing at P3, Piper and Phoebe are dancing together. But in the larger shot of the whole club they are both shown not dancing.
When Paige is wearing her black and white top, in some scenes her right strap is hanging down on her right shoulder and in other scenes its the strap on her left shoulder.
When Piper and Paige are talking in the kitchen, Paige's shirt switches from front to back often and when it does, her bra strap switches from showing to not showing.
TRIVIA: This episode features the band, the Flaming Lips playing at P3.
When Phoebe cut Cole with the letter opener in the earlier season 5 episode "A Witch's Tail" there were only a few drops of blood on the knife, and the blood turned green and dried. In this episode, there is a lot more blood on the letter opener, and it's red and wet.
When the sisters were making those potions to try and vanquish Cole they had his blood right there on that knife all they needed to do was add it to a vanquishing potion for upper level demons.
How come Phoebe touch the arrow? In the season 1 episode "Love Hurts", Leo said that the arrow was poisonous to the sisters as well, so Prue needed to use her powers to remove it.
Piper: Phoebe, have you lost your mind?
Phoebe: No, you said it yourself. It wasn't a smart plan. (to Cole) Unless you didn't really wanted to kill us. You wanted us to be so blinded by hate that we couldn't see what you were really up to.
Cole: Well, it's the only way out for me. And you want it too, so…
Phoebe: Yeah, but on our terms, not yours. We won't help you commit suicide.
Cole: You already have.
(Using telekinesis, he pulls the potion vial from Phoebe's hand, and it breaks at his feet, inciting a huge fireball.)
Piper (about Trevor, right after Paige dumped him): I really thought that one was a keeper.
Phoebe: Why, because he was cute and funny and… oh, yeah, don't let me forget deliciously yummy?
Piper: So wait a minute. If The Elders have lost track of him, why do they suddenly think Paige can find him?
Leo: Well, The Elders have complete faith in Paige's abilities. So do I. All we have to do is trust that they know what they're doing.
Piper: How are you supposed to trust people that don't answer your questions?
Paige: Phoebe, Being that I'm also a whitelighter, I just want to warn you that maybe, you know, you shouldn't jump to conclusions and you should have all the facts before you act.
Phoebe (pauses for a moment): Actually, you're right.
Paige (to herself): I am good this.
Phoebe: Back to your old self again, huh?
Cole: Get outta here.
Phoebe: Did you kill two people last night?
Cole: I don't have time for this.
Phoebe: Well, you better make time for this.
Cole: I can't be good. I won't be evil. What do you want from me?
Phoebe: I want an answer.
Cole: Yes, I killed those two criminals. And you wanna know something else? It was easy. It felt very natural. Is that what you wanted to hear?
Phoebe: You just don't get it, do you? They weren't only two criminals, they were two human beings, Cole.
Cole: Spare me the judgmental crap. You have no idea what I'm going through right now.
Phoebe: No, I don't. And I don't wanna know.
Cole: Then why are you still here?
Phoebe: I'm here to warn you. If you kill another person, good or evil, I will vanquish you.
Cole (as Phoebe heads back to the elevator): You really think you have the power to vanquish me?
Phoebe (as she presses the doors closed): Try me.
Cole (to himself): I might just do that.
Sam: A little advice: You need to work up the cover. Didn't you read the whitelighter manual?
Paige: There's a manual?
Sam: I can't believe The Elders sent a Newbie out after me.
Paige: Well, I can't believe The Elders saddled me with a cranky old drunk as my first charge!
Sam: Look at you, of all people, defending The Elders.
Piper: Hey, they may not be on my Christmas list, but that doesn't mean they don't usually have a good reason for doing the things that they do.
Sam: Like telling you you couldn't marry Leo?
Piper: I said "usually".
(After Paige kept pressuring Phoebe to know Sam's identity)
Phoebe: Ok. You really wanna know?
Phoebe: Sam was…Mom's whitelighter.
Paige: That would make him…
Phoebe: Your biological father.
(Paige is stunned, she scoffs)
Phoebe: Oh, honey, are you ok?
Paige: Great. I'm just great.
Piper: Where is your hitman?
Cole: Oh, you know those darklighters. They're just so difficult to work with.
Elfin Nanny: Am I expected to protect the baby from the incessant demon attacks?
Piper: I'd say incessant is a bit of an overstatement.
Elfin Nanny: You are a Charmed One, correct?
Piper: Yes…but that won't affect your job here.
Leo: Won't it?
Piper: No, honey, it won't. Whitelighters, they're such pessimists.
(Sam gets hit by a darklighter)
Phoebe: Okay everybody with whitelighter blood stand back.
(Piper, Leo, and Paige all step back)
Phoebe: Last night, two guys held up a bar and a vigilante killed them.
Paige: Sounds more like you need an arrest warrant, not a potion.
Phoebe: Not when the vigilante is tall, dark and handsome and can send people flying with the wave of a hand.
Piper: Well, that doesn't mean it's Cole.
Phoebe: Did I forget to mention the scorch marks?
Piper: That means it's Cole.
Phoebe: Don't you think it's a little early for you to be looking for nannies? I mean, you're not even showing yet. Except for your boobies.
Piper: I'm telling you, they are large and they are definitely in charge. But at least something is normal about this pregnancy.
Piper (to Phoebe): Is that who I think it is?
Phoebe: Mom's whitelighter.
Piper: And Paige's father.
Paige: The Elders sent me to protect someone without telling me who he was.
Piper: I'd say that's a bit of an understatement.
Phoebe (about Cole): I want him dead. I want this over with. And if this doesn't work, we might not get a second chance.
Piper: Got it. Kill him. Dead.
Paige (to Leo): If this is where I was supposed to find my charge, you might have told me not to wear my Jimmy Choos.
Paige: I am now Paige Matthews, whitelighter-witch... I'm a hyphenate.
Piper: I gotta go home cuz I gotta interview magical nannies tomorrow and I gotta prepare.
Phoebe: Magical nannies...you mean like Mary Poppins?
Leo: Yeah, well the Elders aren't exactly known for their sense of humor.
Piper: You knew about this supernatural Jenny Jones reunion, didn't you?!
