Episode Quotes

Prue Halliwell: Hannah, why are you always such a bitch to me?
Hannah Webster: Because it's my mission in life to destroy you.
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.
Piper Halliwell: You cast a Truth Spell?
Prue Halliwell: Yes. Look, please, no more questions.
Piper Halliwell: Why?
Prue Halliwell: I wanted to know what Andy would think of me if he found out I was a witch.
Piper Halliwell: Oh.
Phoebe Halliwell: I can't believe it.
Prue Halliwell: Oh, look who's talking, little Miss Spell-of-the-Week.
Phoebe Halliwell: No, no. I mean, I can't believe you actually took my advice. The biggest pooper at the wicca party has finally used her power for personal gain. It's about time.
Piper Halliwell: Personal? It's affecting us. Prue, what have you done?
Prue Halliwell: The spell was only supposed to work on me. It said those in this house. I thought I was alone.
Piper Halliwell: Well, obviously, you weren't.
Piper Halliwell: Wait! We have to undo it right now, fast.
Prue Halliwell: Can't. Twenty-four-hour time limit, which means until eight o'clock tonight, everybody who comes into contact with us will have no choice but to speak the truth.
Piper Halliwell: What do you mean no choice?
Prue Halliwell: Exactly that. Ask me a question.
Phoebe Halliwell: I'm game. Prue, what do you think of me?
Prue Halliwell: While I admire your confidence and your fearlessness, your utter lack of responsibility frustrates me to no end. Oh God, that is so enough.
Piper Halliwell: Oh, my God. This could be very dangerous.


  • 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.


  • 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.
