  • Trivia

    • Goof: When Prue is doing a search for the poignard, she has barely started typing and we can already see the picture of the poignard on the screen, which is then seen a moment later as the result of her search.

    • Goof: When the sisters face the demons at the end of the episode Prue's bag seems to appear in her hands when her bag was clearly knocked to the floor and no effort was made to pick it up. Cut to Elliot and their is another bag on the floor, yet Prue only came into the room with one bag.

    • TRIVIA: When asked in an interview with Charmed Magazine which was his least favorite/worst episode from the entire series, this is the episode Brad Kern chose.

    • TRIVIA: This episode is the first episode to feature one of the most used expression on the show: "Cliff Notes version...". It is first said by Prue.

    • TRIVIA: Featured music in this episode -
      -Evidence by Tara MacLean

    • In the episode "I've Got You Under My Skin", Piper told Phoebe that Chef Moore quit to open his own restaurant. If Piper knew that long before, then why was she freaking out about telling the family? Shouldn't they have already known? It is possible the restaurant never informed the family and sprung it on Piper at the last minute.

    • Allison told Elliot's mom that they were getting the marriage certificate the next day before the rehearsal dinner. In the next scene the caption reads "One Week Later", and the wedding hasn't happened yet. Why would they have the rehearsal dinner a week before the wedding?

    • In the final confrontation with the demon bride, Prue looks in her purse for the poniard- the same purse Elliot picks up off the floor, and the purse we see once again in Prue's hands even when Elliot is rummaging through it.

    • Aren't the Charmed ones supposed to "protect the innocent"? Was the stripper not innocent enough? Which also brings up the question even if they devoured the dancer completely wouldn't someone report him missing? The agency he worked for would surely know where his last job was, bringing more police attention to the home!

    • TRIVIA: Hecate calls on Asteria and Perses to summon the big storm, and in Greek mythology Asteria and Perses are Hecate's parents. Asteria is the Titan goddess of prophecies, astrology and necromancy, Perses was the Titan god of destruction and Hecate (or Hekate) was the goddess of magic, witchcraft, the night, the moon and ghosts and necromancy.

    • TRIVIA: Jade's last name was D'mon, which is very close to demon.

    • If Hecate came to earth to marry a man and conceive a child that would look human, but be pure demon, then why would Hecate's baby in Phoebe's premonition look like a demon?

    • When Piper and Phoebe go running to alert the security guard about the Priest going after Jade, they aren't wearing jackets. In the next scene, after they hear the glass shatter they run out with the guard and are wearing jackets and Phoebe is carrying a purse.

    • When the boxes of Louis Jadot fall on the bridesmaids in the cellar, it's obvious that they're empty, since glass is heard clinking, not breaking.

    • When Jade summons storm clouds to block the sun, the lighting on the outdoor set of the wedding never changes.

  • Quotes

    • Prue: We did that.
      Phoebe: And they'll live happily ever after.
      Piper: I wonder if we will.
      Prue: Of course, we will. Why shouldn't we?
      Piper: That's easy for you to say. You'll never greet your husband at the door with: "Honey, I think I froze the kids."
      Prue: No, I've just accidentally moved them to another zip code.
      Phoebe: But I will see them, find them, and bring them back safely. If I can ever learn to control my powers.
      Piper: If any of us can.
      Phoebe: Just think of the obstacles that Allison and Elliot have overcome. If they can do it, so can we.
      Prue: I guess true love does conquer all.
      Phoebe: Especially if you have separate bathrooms.
      (They see Andy walking towards them.)
      Piper: Speaking of true love...
      Phoebe: Ooh.
      Andy: Fancy seeing you here.
      Prue: Yeah, isn't it? (She holds up the poignard.) Uh, I wanted to give this back to you. I'm finished with it.
      Andy: How'd you know I'd be here?
      (He takes it off of her.)
      Prue: I didn't. I was gonna drop it off after the wedding.
      Andy: Aha, shall we talk about this in private, Prue?
      (Andy puts his arm around Prue and they walk away.)
      Phoebe: Do you believe in destiny? (They giggle.)
      Piper: He believes in destiny. Shh.

    • Prue: Ok, so it's time to shower, shampoo and go kick some Hecate butt.
      Phoebe: Did she just say shower?
      Piper: She did, didn't she?
      Piper & Phoebe: Hot water!

    • Jade D'Mon: Why, you little witch.
      Piper: Hey!

    • Prue: My sisters and I, we have special gifts.
      Allison: Gifts? What kind of gifts?
      Prue: Ones you can't return. Let's just say we come from an interesting kind of tree.

    • Prue: Piper, are you still in there?
      (Cut to the bathroom. Piper's in there holding up a pregnancy test.)
      Piper: I'm almost done.
      Prue: Define almost?
      Piper: Just give me another minute...or two.
      Prue: You're positive?
      Piper (whispering): I hope not.
      Prue: Piper, I cannot be late today.
      Piper (whispering): I know the feeling.

    • Rex: Prue, your, um, sister's here to see you. She's waiting in your office.
      Prue: Which sister?
      Rex: The one who upon seeing your office, said "Damn, I should go back to college."
      Prue: Phoebe.

    • Phoebe: Ok, I can't hold it any longer. Your name isn't Piper, and that's the good news. You're really Hecate, Queen of the Underworld, you're pregnant with a demon child, which means...I'm afraid I have to kill you.
      Piper: What?!

    • Prue: Phoebe, what is it that you saw exactly?
      Phoebe: Well, I-I saw the thing being born.
      Prue: Did you see Piper?
      Phoebe: Yes, I saw her legs.
      Prue: Never saw her face?
      Phoebe: No.
      Piper: Hello, bickering sisters. I'm not pregnant but I am in the room.

    • Kirsten: What part of no did you not understand?
      Piper: The non-original part?

    • Allison: Why would you help me?
      Prue: Have you ever seen that television show where the woman is an angel and she helps strangers every week?
      Allison: I love that show!
      Prue: Don't get too excited. I'm nothing like that.

    • Andy: Sorry the dead man on your driveway was such an inconvenience...
      Darryl: Welcome to the lifestyles of the rich and shameless.

    • Prue: ...that television show where that woman's an angel and helps people.
      Prue is referring to the CBS drama Touched by and Angel and the show's main character Monica. Ironically, the show aired opposite of Charmed in the first several seasons.

    • Title: The Wedding From Hell
      This is a reference to the common saying "from hell", used to describe an awful occasion.
