Although Piper could walk through any furniture as a ghost, she didn't, presumably because she was used to walking around them like every normal person does.
TRIVIA: The number '150' is used 2 times this episode. Piper mentions 150 alleyways and Paige mentions phoning 150 police stations.
TRIVIA: There are two brief flashback scenes in this episode. As Leo is recovering his memory, he first sees himself killing Elder Gideon in the sixth season finale "It's a Bad, Bad, Bad, Bad World (2)", shortly after he remembers when he proposed to Piper in the bathroom, in the third season premiere "The Honeymoon's Over".
TRIVIA: This is actually the ninth time Piper died, making her the sister with the highest number of deaths. She was killed in the season 1 episode "Deja Vu All Over Again", in the season 2 episode "Awakened", twice in the season 3 episode "Coyote Piper" and "All Hell Breaks Loose", in the season 4 episode "Saving Private Leo", in the season 6 episode "I Dream of Phoebe", and in the season 7 episodes "Styx Feet Under", and "Someone to Witch Over Me".
When Phoebe is saying goodbye to Drake, she says it's been three weeks since they met, but in the previous episode "Carpe Demon", Drake says he only has two weeks to live.
TRIVIA: Leo initally chooses to become an Elder and forsake his human life, but later "falls from grace" and chooses Piper and his family. Leo now no longer has any powers, whitelighter or elder, and is completely mortal. We also discover that Wyatt is capable of healing people, as he demonstrates by healing Piper.
TRIVIA: This episode marks the final appearance of Julian McMahon as Cole Turner and the one and only time he returned to guest-star on the series. Cole returns in this episode, and reveals that he is trapped in limbo with no love, as his punishment. Later it's revealed he's responsible for Drake's mortality (as he arranged the deal with the sorcerer), and that he orchestrated Drake and Phoebe meeting. This also marks the final appearance of Drake, as he dies at the end of the episode.
TRIVIA: This is the third time, Piper has been put into a coma. The first two were in the season 2 episode "Awakened" and the season 4 episode "Brain Drain".
When Drake says "86 that kind of talk, we will not give up on love, repeat not give up on love.", he throws down his gloves. The next time you see his hands, when he grabs Phoebe and dances with her, his gloves are in his hand again.
Cole picks up a picture of Phoebe, and then puts it down on the chair. But if you look very closely, you will notice that both pictures of Phoebe look different from each other.
When Drake transports Piper into his arms, her arm dangles off. However, next scene when the camera is closer, Piper's dangled arm is now resting on her stomach.
Phoebe pulls her gloves off as she's talking with her sisters at the beginning of the show, yet a couple of shots later, her gloves are still on.
When Drake lays Piper's body on the couch her legs seem to move from position to position throughout the scene. Slight movement, but still visible.
A flashback from the season 3 premiere "The Honeymoon's Over" is shown when Leo proposed to Piper - however, it doesn't match. Originally, Piper left the room before Leo could put the ring on her finger, but the shown clip shows she stayed and Leo put the ring on her.
Somehow Phoebe and Paige catch up to the elder and the amnesiac Leo, despite the fact they're in a pretty diplidated truck and the elder had an hour's head start.
Piper: Leo, are you okay?
Leo: I just can't believe it. I don't have powers anymore. I don't hear
jingling. I can't orb.
Piper: Is that bad?
Leo: Are you kidding? (Smiling) It's great. It's everything I've wanted ever since the day I met you.
Piper: I thought you were never going to find your way home.
Leo: It was your faith that brought me back. I could hear you calling me, like you were right there next to me.
Piper: I had a good coach (referring to Cole), an old friend.
Cole (to Piper) : Look, you have someone out there who needs you as much as you need him. Now if you don't have faith in that love, it's not the only thing that'll die.
Cole (to Piper): Like it or not, Phoebe and I were very much in love.
Piper (about Phoebe): She didn't tell me she had a thing for Drake.
Paige: Well, I mean, she didn't tell me, either. But come on, he's...he's cute, he's funny, he's smart, and he's destined to leave. I don't know, that kind of sounds like her type to a tee.
Piper (to Elder Sandra): You've got a lot of nerve, lady. Now I don't want to see you again, or any of your kind ever again. We're done with all of you. Now please, go.
Sandra: Don't give up hope.
Piper: You really need to stop talking. Now please get out of my house.
Cole (feigning innocence): What?
Piper: Don't "what?" me, Cole. What are you doing here?
Cole: You called for me.
Piper: I didn't call for you.
Cole: You asked for help. Here I am.
Piper: Like hell. You're the answer to my prayers? I don't think so.
Drake: I've run into a few of those Thorn Demons myself. Those pricks can be vicious - pun intended.
Piper: Since when do you quote Shakespeare?
Cole: It's a recent affliction.
(Phoebe gives Drake a parting kiss)
Drake: Think of me when you dance.
Cole: You did all that I asked for. You saved Phoebe.
Drake: I did more than that, buddy. I fell in love with her.
Cole: None of the above. We're caught in a cosmic void, between life and death.
Piper: I'm stuck with you?
Piper (to Cole): What are you exactly? Ghost, demon, poltergeist ... nightmare?
(Piper's spirit tries to knock over the lamp on the table, but her arm goes clear through it.)
Cole: Nice try.
Piper (glaring at Cole): Shut up.
Phoebe: How many Halliwell women have actually been able to hold onto their men?
Piper: Name one.
Paige: Okay, uh... (she thinks for a moment)...oh my God, you're right, that's so depressing.
Phoebe: Exactly. We're destined to be spinsters. All for the greater good.
Piper: Might as well be nuns. With better outfits.
Woman: If you women need a hot meal and a place to crash, there's a...
Paige: Okay, hi. I'm wearing lip gloss. Do I look homeless?
Cole: I'm the one who's here for all eternity.
Piper: Paying penance for your evil past.
Cole: You always were the smart one.
Piper: Cut the crap.
Cole: And direct. I miss that. Actually, no, I don't.
Piper: Oh no. Am I dead again?
Drake: The point is Leo and Piper's love, it's epic, it's massive. Like Romeo and Juliet, Anthony and Cleopatra....Brad and Jennifer.
Cole: Remember, I go all the way back to Prue.
Paige: Weren't we here before? I mean, doesn't that mattress looks strangely familiar?
Piper: It's probably because we saw one just like it in the alley and the 150 before of that. They all start to look the same after a while.
Drake: Come on, don't scry for me Argentina.
Piper: I don't know which is worse - the fact that I'm dying or that apparently I'm gonna be spending my last dying moments with you.
Cole: I'd say that's what you should be worried about.

Piper falling into a coma and her spirit encountering a demon, who wishes to help her.
This episode plot is quite similar to the season 3 episode "Birthday" of the series Angel, in which Cordelia falls into a coma and her spirit meets a demon named Skip, who wishes to save her. Coincidentally, the actress who played Cordelia (Charisma Carpenter) appeared in a few episodes earlier this season as The Seer.
Title: The Seven Year Witch
This is a reference to the famous Marilyn Monroe film "The Seven Year Itch".
Drake: The point is Leo and Piper's love, it's epic, it's massive. Like Romeo and Juliet, Anthony and Cleapatra....Brad and Jennifer.
In early 2005, famous celebrities Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston annouced their separation after their 7 year relationship/4 year marriage.
Drake: Come on, don't scry for me Argentina.
The song "Don't Cry For Me Argentina" is included in the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical "Evita" which starred Madonna and was sung by her.
re: Leo "falling from grace"
Leo jumping from the bridge seemed very similar to how Seth became human for Maggie in the film "City of Angels" where he jumped from a building.
