Quotes[edit | edit source]

  • Paige Matthews: Hey, no touch. I don't want you or my unborn niece around that. You shouldn't be inhaling all this smoke when you're pregnant, anyway.
  • Piper Halliwell: Ah, Paige, you're such a worry wart.


  • Paige Matthews: What are you mixing up here anyway?
  • Piper Halliwell: Oh, a little burdock root and some eye of newt.
  • Paige Matthews: What? You're never, ever supposed to mix those two things together. That is a volatile combination...You know, you ought to be more careful.
  • Piper Halliwell: Hey, a good plan violently executed this week is better than a perfect plan executed next week. That's Patton.
  • Paige Matthews: Why are you quoting Patton?


  • Nancy O'Dell: Gosh, I am so sorry. Your sister said we were doing the interview in the bathroom.
  • Phoebe Halliwell: Well that should have been your first clue that my sister sprang from the shallower end of the gene pool.
  • Piper Halliwell: Oh, come on Phoebe. You wanted fame, go ahead and grab it. Carpe diem.
  • Phoebe Halliwell: Don't mention carp around me please.
  • Piper Halliwell: I am doing you a favor. People will think you're bold and daring. What's better then a celebrity who wants to do an interview in the nude.
