Prudence 'Prue' Halliwell
Phoebe gets shot via a psychic echo during a premonition of Beau getting shot. She then lies bleeding on the couch dying because Leo can't heal her. Why don't they just take her to a hospital, or if they are worried about exposure, Leo was an Army medic and probably took out how many bullets at war?
When Cole and Prue are trying to convince Beau that they have gifts too, Prue tells Cole to go ahead and show him. Why didn't she just show him her power?
TRIVIA: This is Prue's fourth time traveling in time. Although it is the first time she does so without her sisters and the first time the travel does include the Halliwell line.
When Leo and Victor are at the diner, Leo orbs out. Why would he do that out in the open? Wouldn't he be afraid of exposure?
Before Cole and Prue shimmer back in time Cole has some facial hair on his face but when they get to their destination his facial hair is gone.
TRIVIA: The newspaper that Piper and Leo read in the ghost town said "Half-breed to die at dawn". This was in reference to Bo however since Phoebe is half witch (her father Victor is mortal), this smart play on words includes her since she can feel what Bo feels. If he dies, she dies, since he is half Native American and she is half witch. they are not only linked psychically but they paralell each other.
TRIVIA: This episode marks Shannen Doherty's second time directing an episode of the series.
TRIVIA: In this episode Prue and Cole make a lot of jokes that implicate that they hate each other. Ironic since in the 2001 film Another Day Shannen Doherty and Julian McMahon play a couple.
TRIVIA: In this episode Victor is not happy to discover that Leo is a Whitelighter, due to past tensions between Patty and her Whitelighter.
Victor tells Leo about Patty's whitelighter having been in her life, "trying to steal her away" since before they separated. Yet in previous episodes, Leo says that Piper, Phoebe and Prue were not supposed to find out he was their whitelighter.
Right before Cole and Prue shimmer you can see that Cole's face has not been shaved for a day or two, but right after they shimmer, he looks clean shaven.
(Phoebe has a premonition of Beau getting shot and collapses)
Prue: Phoebe! What's wrong?
Phoebe: (Seeing blood on her hands) I... think I've been shot!
(Cole kills one of the bad guys with an energy ball and he turns laughing, stopping as he sees Prue behind him)
Prue: Like I said. Once a demon, always a demon.
Cole: You know, it wouldn't kill you to be nice to me.
Prue: Really? It's funny that you should say that, considering how many times you actually tried to kill me.
Cole: Still think you should have worn that pretty little red dress drying on the line.
Prue: It was a prostitute's dress. Not the impression I wanted to make. At least I'm not wearing some dead guy's clothes.
Cole: I thought you'd be pleased. At least I'm playing the role of a good guy.
Prue: Yeah, right.
Cole: Welcome to the Wild, Wild West.
Prue: All right, just so we're clear, I'm in charge here. You're just my ride.
Cole: Fine with me. What's your plan?
Prue: Find Bo, lay low.
Cole: That's a plan?
Prue: Yeah. You got a better one?
Cole: Maybe. But...first I think we better find something a little less conspiciuous to wear.
Prue: Fine. Agreed. Any ideas?
Cole: Yeah. Nothing you're gonna like, though.
Victor: But there are dangers out there worse than demons and warlocks. You do know about them, don't you?
Leo: Well, yeah, sure.
Victor: Well, the dangers I'm talking about will just sneak up on you and destroy your marriage if you're not careful. Leo, do you know what a whitelighter is?
Prue: So, Leo, you nervous? I mean, only one week before: Tam Tam Tam Tam...
Victor: Piper's marrying a handyman?
Phoebe: Well, no, he isn't really a handyman. Wait, you do know that he's--?
Victor: All I know is he's a nice enough guy who seems to know the big, bad secret. Trust me, it's a lot better for a mortal to know he's marrying a witch before the wedding instead of after. Wish I'd had that...
Phoebe: Mortal, right.
Leo (quietly to Victor at the diner): I have to go... and I don't think you're going to like how...
(Leo orbs, leaving Victor in an unpleasant shock)
Bartender: What'll it be?
Prue: Hi. Moonshine.
Bartender: A what?
Cole: She means whiskey. Make it two. Leave the bottle.
Cole (to Prue): You watch too many old movies.
Prue: And you'd be confusing me with Phoebe.
Cole: Not a chance.
(There is a knock on the door)
Prue: I'll get that.(She opens the door, and Cole enters the house)
Cole: Hi Prue, is Phoebe here?
(Next we see Phoebe and Piper on the couch, and Cole sent flying off toward them)
Prue: Hi. What am I? A potted plant?
Bartender: Things are getting pretty dangerous around here. Friendly advice. Wet your whistle, get back on your horses, and move on as fast as you can.
Victor: Leo! You lying little piece of...
Phoebe: Cole is gonna help
Victor: How do you know?
Phoebe: Because he loves me as much as I love him
Phoebe: Well, don't get mad at me, I've been shot.
(Cole and Prue are about to shimmer to a parallel plain)
Cole: You have to hold my hand.
Prue: This sucks already.
Phoebe: Dad doesn't know that Leo is a whitelighter.
Prue & Leo: What?!
Piper: Well, I've been meaning to tell him, but considering Mom had an affair with her whitelighter, I didn't think he'd be really receptive to the idea.
Leo: Piper, he's gonna kill me when he finds out.
Piper: Oh, don't be ridiculous, you're already dead.
