With these offerings, I call on thee,
Goddess of Fertility,
Rise now, show us the truth,
Give us the gift of eternal youth.

  • This is the first appearance of Kyle Brody.
  • This is the first and only episode to show Piper both blow up and freeze an object like the Source did in "Charmed and Dangerous" after he used the Hollow to steal her powers. However, he did it in one motion (when a vase exploded and quickly froze itself) but she does each action separately.
  • When Piper unfreezes the glass shards they fall directly to the grounds a similar effect she displayed in Saving Private Leo.
  • This is only time a sister turns into her elderly self. However, Phoebe summons her older self in "The Three Faces of Phoebe" and Piper meet her older self due to time travel in "Forever Charmed".
  • The set used for the hallways of the museum was also used for Buckland's Auction House in season 1 and 2. The set will be used later in "Mr. & Mrs. Witch".
  • This is the first time that a confirmed LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender) character is featured on the series.
  • This is the first time Piper tells Paige "I love you" on-screen.
  • Throughout the episode, Paige reminds Piper that Piper will get older and have problems before Paige. In real life, Holly Marie Combs is younger than Rose McGowan.

Cultural References

  • When Phoebe and Leslie are talking, in one of the shots Phoebe was is near the door, and in the next shot she is near the window.
  • When Phoebe goes through the lasers, she does a head stand and you can see long hair however, from a different angle, Phoebe's short hair is apparent. You can clearly notice that this was her stunt double.
  • When Leo has fallen asleep looking out for Wyatt and Chris, there was a book on top of him, then it was gone in one of the shots while Piper and Paige were talking.
  • Young Paige is wearing a shirt that is skin tight and doesn't come completely down to her pants. When she rapidly ages, she is wearing the same outfit, but it covers her whole body, including some extra fat and part of her pants.
