Season 6 Episode 2

Valhalley of the Dolls (2)

Aired Sunday 8:00 PM Sep 28, 2003 on The WB



  • Trivia

    • Leo insults Chris without knowing that Chris's mother is actually Piper, which means that Leo unknowingly implied his wife is a bad woman.

    • TRIVIA: This is the first time that a character develops amnesia. Leo will be the second and last in the 150th episode.

    • In Vallhalley of the Dolls (1) still-alive Darryl has his shirt tucked in but his spirit has his shirt untucked. In Vallhalley of the Dolls (2), spirit Darryl has his shirt untucked and jumps back into his body. Alive Darryl, whose shirt was tucked in when he fell down in part 1, suddenly has his shirt untucked when he wakes up in part 2. His body was never moved, so his shirt should still be tucked in when he gets back in his body.

    • When Leo is with Chris in Valhalla, he refers to Freyja as "Frasier".

    • When the warrior threw the knife at Darryl, Phoebe looked at Piper and said please. Why didn't she yell at Darryl to look out as well? Granted Piper reacted just in time but shouldn't Phoebe have at least have yelled out to Darryl as well just in case Piper didn't help?

    • When Paige hears the dog talk, he asks her what does she have to lose in trying to turn him back human to which she immediately agrees. Shouldn't she have at least taken a moment to think about it or consulted her sisters? While, Oscar was in fact an innocent it would not be the first time one of the sisters accidentally helped a villian. Wouldn't it have even occurred to her to that she should check out his story?

    • TRIVIA: When the Valkyries are walking to a crime scene, the sign reads SWA Properties. In the episode From Fear to Eternity, Phoebe works as a secretary for the company's owner. SWA Properties appears countless other times, sometimes just as a sign in the background, or sometimes it's shown more prominantly. Also when Dan moved away in season 2, he had an SWA Properties "For Sale" sign outside his house.

    • TRIVIA: This episode is the third episode that one of the sisters rides a motorcycle. This time it's Piper, but previously Prue did in the season 3 episode "Just Harried", Paige in the season 4 episode "Size Matters" and later Phoebe will in the season 7 episode "Carpe Demon".

    • When Leo, Paige and Phoebe orb out from the alley, Leo's orbs are shown taking them, but when they are at the Manor, they are shown as Paige's orbs instead.

    • If Phoebe is so overwhelmed by Jason's sexual feelings for her, shouldn't she have, to put it bluntly, overwhelming sexual feelings for herself?

    • When Paige is talking to her boss on her phone she has dark pink lip gloss on but when she is reversing the curse on Oscar and talking to Oscar as a human she has on peach lip gloss.

    • TRIVIA: In this episode, Paige helps a dog named Oscar return to his human form, but in the episode "Charmed Again" she also had a bird named Oscar.

    • When the warrior is throwing a knife to Darryl, why do Paige and Phoebe just stand there hoping for Piper to freeze it? Isn't Paige's orbing power an effective way too? She could simply orb the knife to her.

    • How did the three Valkyries know how to operate and ride the motorcycles when they stole them from the biker gang? Did Piper show them how or was it some sort of Valkyrie instinct?

    • In this episode, when Paige and Phoebe take off their necklaces, this returns them back to normal. So why near the end of the episode do Phoebe and Paige not rip off Piper's necklace?

    • The lead Valkyrie proves their identities by opening the portal. It did not seem to take very long or that much concentration. So, why didn't she open it earlier like before the fight?

  • Quotes

    • Phoebe (about her new power): I just wish I knew how to turn it on and off. I feel like I'm at the mercy of everyone's feelings, and it sucks.
      Paige: Bright side? Maybe you can actually find out how Jason feels about you.
      Phoebe: Yeah, but what if it's not good news?
      Paige: Ha! Then you dump him before he dumps you!
      (Phoebe laughs)

    • (Phoebe is in Jason's office, backing away from him to avoid kissing him again)
      Jason: No? All right, uh...I just really missed you Phoebe.
      Phoebe: Oh, I know! I can tell!'s just...uh, it's very hard. I mean, I mean....hard to explain. That kind of hard, you know. Not the other kind of hard. Am I making any sense?
      Jason (shaking his head): Phoebe...
      (Phoebe backs towards the door)
      Phoebe(stutters): No, no, no, no. Don't come any closer. It'll just...get harder! Phew.

    • (Paige,Leo, Phoebe and Chris are discussing the best way to get Piper out of Valhalla)
      Phoebe: Well that's why we have to make Piper believe she's Piper again, because if we don't get her back mentally, it won't matter if we get her back physically.
      Paige: Okay, but Piper wasn't exactly back before the spell either.
      Leo: What do you mean?
      Paige: Well, that little magical whammy you performed on her, kind of, umm... backfired.
      Phoebe: Yeah, you see after you left, Piper was really...
      Paige: Chipper! Yeah. Incessantly... Increasingly... Annoyingly...chipper.
      Phoebe: What she said.
      Leo: Well, it was supposed to make her feel less pain. I guess with me not around to pull it back a little bit, she got happier and happier.
      Paige: Umm, no! Psychotically chipper!

    • Darryl's face is cut up and bleeding. He appears exhausted.
      Phoebe: Oh, my god. Darryl, what happened?
      Darryl: I think I just got attacked by Attila the Hun.

    • Jason: I like your hair.
      Phoebe: Thanks. I like your hair too.

    • Paige: Why does she always pick on me first?

    • Phoebe: Powers are emotion-based, aren't they? If I can channel Piper's emotions, I should be able to channel her powers, too - then, use them against her.

    • (Piper approaches Phoebe and Paige)
      Phoebe: Reverse the spell! Reverse the spell!
      Paige (reciting the spell): Spell was cast, now make it pass. Remove it now, don't ask me how.
      (the spell doesn't work as Piper uses her Valkyrie powers and throws, Paige backwards crashing into a steel wall)
      Phoebe: Well serves you right, what kind of a spell was that? Okay Piper I know you don't want to feel, the pain but you've got to feel the pain, or you won't feel the good. You get me?
      (Piper, not listening, kicks Phoebe, backwards where she then crashes into the steel fence)
      Paige: Oh and that was so much better.

    • Paige (reciting a spell): Open Piper's heart to reveal, that which only Phoebe feels, send it back from whence it came, but don't protect her from the pain.

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • When Paige asks Oscar why a witch cursed him, he makes a tongue-in-cheek comment about how he made a million mistakes. Oscar is played by Evan Marriott, who was the star of the TV reality series Joe Millionaire.

    • When Piper and the three Valkyries ride on bikes, the music playing is Wagner's "Ride of the Valkyrie".

    • Title: Valhalley of the Dolls

      This is a dual reference: "Valhalla" is the name of the Norse heaven where their Valkyries, women on winged horses who were spirits of the dead, bring the souls of warriors after death.
      "Valley of the Dolls" was also contemporary book written in the 1960's about the interwining lives of a few women and their experiences with sex and drugs, and in 1967 was turned into a movie with the same name.
