TRIVIA: As of this episode, Cole has returned to work and has dramatically cleaned up his appearance.
Cole states to Kaia that Phoebe doesn't drink, but in the season 1 episode I've Got You Under My Skin, Alec buys Phoebe a martini at Quake.
In the season 1 episode Is There a Woogy in the House?, the Shadow entered its victims through the mouth and nostrils and appeared as a black cloud. In this episode, it enters Cole through his stomach and looks exactly like the Hollow.
When Paige orbs back in to her cell, there is no sign of pillows on the bed like she claims. Also, her shoes are clearly seen under the blanket before she orbed (watch when she gets up).
What happened to "keeping up appearances" when Dex just disappeared with Phoebe in the middle of the hall?
How it is possible that Phoebe knows just the same exact place where Kaia played with her hair when she is gonna act as Kaia and get into the manor?
When Leo comes with Phoebe, he is shown healing her while they are still orbing. That doesn't make sense at all, it's been said that when they are orbing they are not corporeal, so if there is not a body how can there be any healing?
When Cole throws Piper, Paige and Leo out, Cole and Kaia are shown standing in the middle of the room (just behind of the table) while the door is being closed. But seconds before they were closer to the stairs and not there.
When the sisters and Leo orb back to the Manor and Cole is waiting there, Leo appears to have no reaction after seeing the demons for the first time. When he looks a second time he notices that three demons are there in the room. Why doesn't Leo see them the first time he looks there?
TRIVIA: The "Rat Demon" (the two demons in the club) has appeared before in season 4 episode Trial by Magic.
When Kaia's in the penthouse with Cole Phoebe is unconscious on the ground. Kaia shimmers out and when Cole picks Phoebe up she throws her arms around him. How is that possible when she unconscious?
When Paige is about to have her picture taken at the police staion, while she is talking to Darryl, close shots show her yellow top hanging off her left shoulder, whereas distant shots show her top on both shoulders.
TRIVIA: This is one of four episodes with "Phoebe" in the title. However, there is only one episode with "Paige" in the title, one with "Prue" and two with "Piper".
For a bail of $50,000, you'd only have to put up 10% collateral with a bondsman. It seems nuts to believe that the sisters don't have $5,000 in collateral - either the Grand Cherokee or Phoebe's recently purchased new sports car would be more than sufficient.
The Foley effect of the candlestick (that Phoebe throws to break out of Cole's apartment) doesn't match the apparent size and weight of the candlestick - it sounds more like a tin can - far lighter and tinnier.
After Phoebe has been knocked unconscious, Cole picks her up and puts her on the bed. When he goes to pick her up, Phoebe wraps her arms around his neck, but if she were really unconscious, her arms would have fallen limp by her side.
Cole's claim on the house can't be based solely on having the physical deed. A valid claim needs to be signed over (not just held) and recorded with the jurisdiction. As a matter of law, they should be able to call Darryl and get Cole out immediately. Cole is bluffing to gain time to take the Nexus.
While Cole and Kaia are in the Penthouse with Phoebe unconscious on the floor, Phoebe's face is turned up, or at least sideways. When Cole goes to pick her up, her face is down towards the floor.
The basement in the season 1 episode "Is there a Woogy in the House?" is dramatically different than the ones shown in seasons 3 & 4, presumably because they fixed it. In this episode the basement is back in its original state.
(Kaia kisses Cole disguised as Phoebe)
Kaia: (turns back into herself) How did you know it was me?
Cole: First of all, Phoebe hates me... and she also uses less tongue.
Kaia (disguised as Phoebe, after Piper goes to get her some tea): Tea. Who drinks tea?
Cole: I'm so sorry I had to involve your work. I just needed you distracted while I ruined Piper's club and put Paige in jail.
Phoebe: Paige is in jail?
(The Health Inspector stamps "Condemned" on the paperwork for Piper's club)
Piper: Oh no, no, no. Don't do that. Come on, you've gotta give me another chance.
Health Inspector: And why is that?
Piper (she looks up while not knowing what to say): Because…because…because…
Leo: Because we've been in business nearly four years, and we haven't failed an inspection yet.
Health Inspector: Well, I'd have to disagree with that Mr. Wyatt. You failed two this week.
Piper: Yeah, but this week has been bad, like, strangely bad, and we'll have the plumbing fixed tomorrow, so…can you just come back then?
Health Inspector: Well, your record has been impeccable until now… (he looks down and sees a rat) Whoa! Hello! (Piper gasps) Rats too.
Piper: No! no, we don't have rats. We… they don't live hear! They're just… they're just trying to ruin my life!
Paige (to Phoebe, about Kaia): Wait a second. So you're gonna pretend to be her pretending to be you?
(Leo orbs Phoebe in front of their house where Piper and Paige are standing)
Paige: We're really sorry.
Piper: Yeah. We're sorry.
Piper: Are you ok?
Phoebe: It's ok. It's ok. I'm ok. I'm not mad. Well, maybe I'm a little bit mad. I mean, what took you guys so long? And what happened to my powers?
Leo: Uh, well, she looked like you.
Paige: And at the hospital you said you were tempted and that you didn't want us to vanquish him.
Piper: Then we saw you making out with Cole and we all got a little panicky.
Phoebe: Excuse me. Did you really think I was making out with Cole?
Paige (with a guilty face): We mentioned we were sorry?
(After Piper removed Phoebe's powers)
Leo: So, you can't levitate?
Kaia (as Phoebe): No. Apparently not. That means the spell worked, right?
Piper: I don't know. You're still kinda weird. Maybe the spell had a side effect?
Kaia (as Phoebe): Or maybe I just feel sick because I had to kiss Cole.
Piper: Ah. That's my girl.
Paige: Ok. Where are they? Where are the demons?
Phoebe: Sorry my sweeties, but they're all dead.
Piper: You didn't even leave us one?
Phoebe: There's one left, believe me, there is one left.
Phoebe: You just don't get it Cole, do ya? I thought you were dead and I felt nothing. No pain, no love, nothing. I'm free. And when we do vanquish you and...we will, I'll never look back.
Cole: You know Kaia, I haven't killed you yet because I find you mildly entertaining, but soon the real Phoebe will be by my side. I'm not so sure she'll feel the same way. So, in interest of survival, I suggest you make yourself scarce.
Phoebe: Do you think eye of newt would work on the woman who's trying to sue me?
Paige: Is she demonic?
Phoebe: Well, she's demonically stupid.
(Phoebe opens Cole's office door angrily)
Phoebe: You slimy son of a bitch!
Cole: Phoebe, is that you?
Phoebe: What? Are you evil and blind? Yeah, it's me. Look. Why don't you admit that you're behind this? Admit it so that I can to use magic to fight you!
Cole: I don't know what you're talking about.
(Phoebe shuts the door and goes closer to Cole's desk)
Phoebe: Look, Cole. My career is the most important thing to me. So is that your plan to take it away from me so that I come running to you for comfort?
Cole: Phoebe, I love you, and I don't know what's going on, but maybe I could help. Would you like me to kill someone for you. Your boss, perhaps?
(Phoebe scoffs, gets very angry, and starts shoving the papers on his desk all over the place)
Cole: Hey. Hey. Hey. Hey. Hey. Hey. Hey!
(Phoebe stops shoving)
Phoebe: I might not be able to use magic, but-
Cole: You're sexy when you're mad, you know that? I can't wait until I get to kiss you again.
Phoebe: Cole, I will never be with you again. I hate you. I hate you. You get that?
Cole: Hate is good. It's passionate. Intense. It's...it's...it's a breath away from love!
(Phoebe laughs and Cole smiles back. There is a brief pause, then Phoebe stops laughing and shoves a little more of Cole's papers. She then storms out of Cole's office.)
Cole: Ah. She's great.
(Phoebe slams the door shut)
Piper: Darryl, have you heard from Paige? Because she was supposed to come straight home from the hospital but-
Darryl: Paige is in jail. We tried to call you, but-
Piper: What? What for? What for?!
Darryl: Reckless endangerment and felony hit-and-run.
(Paige suddenly orbs in)
Paige: (notices Darryl) Oops.
Darryl: You have got to be kidding me.
Piper: Paige, Darryl said you were in jail.
Paige: Oh, I am. I mean, I was-I will be, just as soon as I figure out what demon is doing this to me.
Darryl: You just disappered from jail?
Paige: No. I put pillows in the bed first. It always worked at my parents' house.
Paige: What? You weren't gonna help me so I had to help myself. Whether you believe it or not, there is a demon behind this.
Darryl: At two o'clock, they're gonna come get you for your bail hearing. If you're not there, that's my ass. Everybody knows we're friends. They're gonna think I just let you go.
Paige: I will be there at two o'clock.
Piper: See ya.
Paige: Okay. He hates me.
Kaia (disguised as Phoebe): You don't deserve him.
Phoebe: How many times do I have to tell you I don't want him.
(Phoebe attacks Kaia/Phoebe and she blocks Phoebe's kicks and punches)
Kaia (mocking Cole): I want the real Phoebe, I love the real Phoebe. You'll never be as good as the real Phoebe. (They continue to fight and Kaia/Phoebe throws Phoebe against a mirror. Phoebe falls to the floor) What do you think, witch? Am I as good as you? (She pulls out a knife) Or better?
(Phoebe gets up)
Phoebe: Okay, alright, look, I'm sure we can talk about this.
Kaia/Phoebe: I don't think so. See... (she morphs into Kaia) I'm more of a looker than a talker.
Phoebe: Oh, you're blonde. I should've known.
Piper: Hello! He had you mummified!
Kaia (as Phoebe): Whoa, seriously?
Piper (trying to figure out why Phoebe was making out with Cole): Now Phoebe, try and focus. Does Cole have you under some kind of spell?
Kaia (pretending to be Phoebe): Maybe.
Piper: Maybe? Maybe is good! Because magic we can fight. Lust, desperation, insanity we cannot fight, but magic we can fight!
Cole: Please, sweetie, just trust me on this one, I don't want you getting hurt trying to escape.
Phoebe: All right, don't call me sweetie. You can't hold a person prisoner and then call them sweetie.
Piper (about Phoebe): I say we go in there and pull her out by her hair!
Paige: Leo, we saw Phoebe and Cole's tongues locked, hands groping all over each other.
Leo: Okay, didn't need the visual.
Leo: (about Phoebe kissing Cole) Maybe she's under a spell. Or…maybe there was some information that she wanted and she was using sex as a tool.
Piper: I like the sound of that. Slutty and manipulative. Better than evil any day.
Kaia (as Phoebe, as she searches through Phoebe's room): Knife in the panty drawer...my kind of girl!
(After seeing Kaia, disguised as Phoebe, making out with Cole)
Paige: Okay, we need a plan.
Piper: Okay, here it is. We go home...we vomit...
Piper: That's all I got so far.
