1x08 The Truth Is Out There... and It Hurts
First Aired: Nov. 25, 1998 on The WB
Summary: Acting on Phoebe's premonition, the sisters race to stop a mysterious killer from striking again. Prue finds a truth spell and uses it to find out Andy's reaction to her being a witch. When the spell ends, nobody but the sisters remember what was said and Andy's reaction toward Prue's…
Prue Halliwell: Tell him that I'm a witch? I can't do that. What if he can't handle it? It's not like I can put the genie back in the bottle.
Phoebe Halliwell: He's not gonna turn you in to the warlock police. At least you'd know how he feels once and for all. Otherwise, you'll never know if it could've worked out or not. If I were you, I would figure out a way to tell him.
Piper Halliwell: I think he's a self-serving jerk who must have a very small penis. Oh, my God! I'm gonna be so fired!
Piper Halliwell: Oh, my god! I'm gonna be so fired!
Prue Halliwell: No, no, no. It's ok because once the spell ends, no one will remember what they've heard. You guys, I just wanted to see how Andy would react.
Phoebe Halliwell: What a way to come out of the broom closet!
Leo Wyatt: Yeah.
Piper Halliwell: In what way? As a friend sort of way or...?
Leo Wyatt: You have beautiful eyes.
Piper Halliwell: That's a good way.
Leo Wyatt: I'm sorry. That was totally inappropriate, wasn't it?
Piper Halliwell: No, not at all, eh. Oh, what the hell. Leo, how do you feel about women who make the first move?
Leo Wyatt: I don't know. I'm still waiting for it to happen.
Piper Halliwell: Goodness.
Leo Wyatt: Uh, how do you feel about guys who make the second move?
Leo Wyatt: Love 'em.
- Goof (revealing mistake): When the Warlock Gavin kills one of the effects shown is the eyes drained of color, this is confirmed by Andy (at around 46 mins), however when the corpse of the first victim is found (at around 13 mins) the eyes were shown as normal.
- Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): Phoebe tells Tanya that Gavin is a demon, but he is a warlock.
- Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): Phoebe is able to prevent Prue from revealing her identity as a witch to Rex by interrupting Prue and changing the word witch to "winner". This, however, is a lie, and would not be ale to occur under the 24 hour truth spell.
- The real book of shadows prop was being repaired during the filming of this episode. Tanya was flipping through pages of a different book and the cameras simply avoided showing the book's cover to hide this.
- The title of this episode is a nod to anther supernatural series _"The X-Files" (1993)- qv). Which used the tagline, "The Truth is Out There" for the majority of the series.
