Season 4 Episode 22

Witch Way Now?

Aired Sunday 8:00 PM May 16, 2002 on The WB



  • Trivia

    • If Agent Jackman buried the rest of the amulets (that blocked magic) how was it Paige was able to orb in?

    • Directly after Piper "freezes" Jackman in the van, i Piper twiches her upper lip in order to signal to Phoebe. This is a inside reference to the character of Samantha on Bewitched, a series about a witch who had to hide her powers from the world.

    • TRIVIA: During season 4, the Charmed Ones and their associates vanquish 75 demons, 26 vampires, six warlocks, three furies, two ghosts, two mortals, one darklighter and one wizard, making a total of 116 evil beings. Of these, 12 are vanquished by Cole and 29 (including all but one of the vampires) by the Source.

    • This is a different angel of destiny then in season 8 in season 8 the angel of destiny is a female

    • TRIVIA: This is the only episode that was written, produced and directed by Brad Kern. Every other episode is only written and produced by him.

    • TRIVIA: Like every season finale, at the end the Manor's doors swing shut but this time the Angel of Destiny closes them.

    • While in the attic, Piper says "here's the reversal spell", but when played back on the tape by Agent Jackman, it is Paige making the statement.

    • If Phoebe knew that Jackman would unfreeze soon then why did she turn the music off when she said the spell?

    • Why wouldn't Selena or her bodyguards see Piper open the door?

    • This episode is the first appearance of an Angel of Destiny as he comes to offer the girls a normal life.

    • Jackman claims that witchcraft is the only logical explanation to some of the things he has seem in the job, but since when is resorting to magic logical?

    • TRIVIA: As of this episode, Cole returns from his banishment to the demonic wasteland.

    • TTRIVIA: This is the last episode to air on Thursday nights; starting in season 5 the show was moved to Sunday nights.

    • At the beginning when the Angel of Destiny came the first time, Paige moved the curtain aside to see everyone outside frozen. During The Angel's final visit, Paige couldn't close the door. Why would the door be frozen but not the curtains?

    • TRIVIA: At the end of the episode, The Angel of Destiny tells Piper that she is pregnant.

    • In the start of the episode when Leo is "hovering" you can see the fold in his pants from the harness to lift him up.

    • If Jackman has an amulet which can protect him from magic, why doesn't he wear it at the very beginning, since he already knew that he was spying on highly suspected witches?

    • Piper says she's suspicious of Jackman because there are no cones around his van, but when he gets out of the driver's seat to get into the back of the van, there is a cone there. He obviously didn't put it there, but there is one.

  • Quotes

    • (Paige exits the house almost in slow motion gliding down to the street workers with a tray of lemonade, they are obviously smitten)
      Paige: (suggestively) Does anybody need a little cooldown? (the men charge at her for a little "refreshment") Easy boys, there's plenty to go around.

    • Angel of Destiny: You can choose to relinquish your magic and lead normal lives again, unaccounted, free. We'd wipe the entire slate clean. Nobody would come
      after you again. Well, what do you say?
      Piper: What do we say? Are you kidding? You can't just freeze the whole world and come in here and drop a bombshell like that and expect a quick decision.

    • (Leo is trying to hang a picture.)
      Piper: It's gotta go a little higher.
      Leo: I need a ladder.
      Paige: Leo, just hover.
      Piper: No, no, no, I don't wanna jinx anything. I'd rather we not use magic unless we absolutely have to, thank you very much.
      Paige: Come on, Piper, relax a little. Use it or lose it, lady.
      Piper: Fine.
      (Leo hovers.)
      Paige: Ah, see, no major disaster struck.
      Phoebe (entering): We have a huge problem.
      Piper (to Paige): You were saying?

    • Piper: You just have to use some of your God given powers.
      (she unbuttons one of Paige's buttons on her dress)

    • Cole: This is the Wasteland, where all vanquished demons end up. The beast feeds on their essence, their powers.
      Phoebe: So what are you dong here?
      Cole: Hanging on to our love.

    • Piper: least until they find those files on us.
      Leo: They won't. I sorta orbed them into a volcano.

    • Angel of Destiny: Actually it's because of a demon that I've come to see you, which in and of itself is very rare: we angels of destiny normally don't intervene, except in extraordinary situations: Mozart at age seven, Michelangelo, Albert Einstein... (with clear embarrassment) Britney Spears...

    • (After being visited by the angel of Destiny and finding out they have an innocent to protect)
      Phoebe: Who are we? Charlie's Freaking Angels?

    • Angel of Destiny: By the way, thought you'd like to know, neither decision would've affected yours and Leo's personal destiny.
      Piper: What?
      Angel of Destiny: You'll find out soon.
      He glances down at Piper's stomach.
      Phoebe: Oh my god.
      Piper: What?
      Phoebe: Don't you get it?
      Piper: What?
      Phoebe (to Paige): Don't you get it? (excitedly) She's pregnant!
      Piper: Who's pregnant? I'm pregnant?
      Phoebe and Paige scream in excitement and hug Piper.
      Phoebe (to Piper's stomach): Hi baby.

    • Leo: Hey, did you just freeze me?
      Piper: No dear. The Angel of Destiny did.

    • Piper: Havin' a crappy day?
      Phoebe: Yeah.
      Piper: Cole?
      Phoebe: Yeah.

    • Piper: Okay, in case anyone is wondering, we are officially screwed.

    • Cole: I'm a demon with a soul, Phoebe. It's rather unique to the cosmos.
