Episode Quotes

Phoebe Halliwell: So what are waiting for? Tell him the truth. It's the only thing standing between you guys.
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.
Inspector Andy Trudeau: Can you change? I mean, is it something you can get rid of?
Prue Halliwell: No, Andy, I can't change who I am, and that's something I've recently come to accept. The question is, can you?
Inspector Andy Trudeau: To tell you the truth, I don't know, Prue. I honestly don't know.
Martin: Why spend money on more employees when I know you'll do it and you won't complain? I got a bargain - all the work for half the price. Piper, I - I don't know why I said that.
Piper Halliwell: Too late, Martin. Truth's out and so am I. You don't deserve me. I quit.

Mistakes/Goofs

  • 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.
  • 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 (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.

Trivia

  • The title of this episode is a nod to anther supernatural series "The X Files" (1993). Which used the tagline, "The Truth is Out There" for the majority of the series.
  • 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.
  • SPOILER: Technically the first time Andy learns the truth about Prue being a witch
