Caberet Fantôme, the name of the ghostly nightclub caught in the time loop, is French for Phantom Caberet.
When Darryl is talking to Phoebe and Paige at the beginning, while Paige is saying "back up to the 'possessed' thing please", she gives very slight looks at the camera, and then a very obvious one when finishing her sentence.
When Phoebe-Paige is doing the interview the woman that is supposed to be taking notes is only listening. Shouldn't she be taking notes?
TRIVIA: In this episode Billy Zane sang the song "Everything's Kind of Good", co-written by his sister, actress Lisa Zane and Andrew T. Tuckerman.
TRIVIA: This episode is the first time that Piper and Leo wear their wedding rings since the end of season 5.
At the beginning, Drake says the troll has come to help with the magical composition class, and although not seen, it is implied the troll is very large, considering the room shakes when it walks and it is able to pick up several students. Yet when trolls were first introduced in the series they were very small.
TRIVIA: This is the third time that Paige morphs into someone else on the show - this time it's Phoebe.
When Piper and Leo orbed in, they are holding Wyatt's hand. In the next shot, Wyatt is holding a bag of goodies before Piper and Leo go into the Conservatory.
TRIVIA: Guest star David Anders is best known for his role as the evil Julian Sark on ABC's "Alias".
Why would Piper attempt to blow up Drake? By that time, she knew he was possessed by Count Roget, so she blows up Drake in risk of him actually blowing up and dying, an innocent no less, and someone who Phoebe cares for a lot. She could of tried to freeze him, which would of been a safer option, and then Leo went to use his lighting bolts on him - are they mad?
Why was Phoebe asking questions about time loops. She knows all about time loops, the Charmed Ones have encountered time loops on at least two occasions. One in "Deja Vu All Over Again" and the other in "The Good, The Bad, And The Cursed"
Drake talks about visting the 1890s, but he wasn't in the room to hear Phoebe when she explained about how they determined that Mike was possessed by someone from the 1890s, and she never told him once he came in.
At the end, even though the on-screen band consists of only a pianist and a trumpet player, the actual music we hear them play has a rather extensive strings section.
Drake: Listen, odds are, the Count--he's possessed my body right? And until he's evicted, I got no where to go. Only you can get out...into your body. Even though I'm into your body, I still can't get out.
Phoebe: I'll come back for you.
Drake: And listen, if he puts up to big of a fight, all right, you just vanquish my sorry ass! I don't care.
Drake: But only as a last resort.
Phoebe (raising both hands to stop Drake from continuing): Okay!
Leo: It's not the shopping. It's this whole world vacation thing. I just think we should stay here and wait for the Elders' decision on me.
Piper: Absolutely not. That's precisely why we should be going. Look, we're all together, we deserve a vacation. And we're not gonna sit around and wait for the other pattini to drop, so that's that. We're going.
Leo: But what about the travel and the cost? (Leo grins from ear to ear)
Piper: Oh, for god sakes, Leo. We're orbing.
Cameron: So, why don't we start with… what inspired you to become an advice columnist?
(Paige, as Phoebe, blinks)
Paige (as Phoebe): That's a really good question. Well, I guess, uh… growing up as an only child…
Cameron: I'm sorry. Only child?
Paige (as Phoebe): I meant Paige grew up as an only child. I mean, that's how she grew up until... she met her sisters, you know, us, m-me, and that had absolutely nothing to do with why Phoebe became an advice columnist!
Elise (chuckles): She talks about herself in the third person. (she glares at Paige)
Paige (as Phoebe): Yeah, what I meant to say was that, um... Paige really had a lot to do with my decision. Well, she opened up a whole new world for me and made me see how much I really have to offer, and I can honestly say that I would not be standing here today if it wasn't for Paige.
Piper: Wait, what are we supposed to do?
Phoebe: What you always do—worry.
Paige: Phoebe, you asked to meet me here at...mm...8:22. That's not making the most of your day—that's some sort of weird OCD thing.
Piper: This is what you do when you have one week to live?
Piper: What's my middle name?
Piper: Ah, that's my girl.
Drake: Paige, there's a lot more to life than work. There's adventure!
Paige: Really? I wouldn't know.
