To Erase Painful Memories

After this cruel memory
is seen and said
Erase these thoughts
from my
Heart and my head.


Animal Transformation Potion

Piper used this potion to transform some journalists into rats. The journalists were nosing around in the garbage of the Manor when Piper transformed them. Piper later reversed her magic by throwing the Reversal Potion at the rats.

Ghost Transformation Potion

Paige drank a potion which turned her into the ghost of Carol Flowers. As the ghost, she tried to scare Seth Perra into letting go of the Halliwell case, but that didn't work.

Explosion Potions

Billie used Explosion Potions to attack The Dogan. She threw several potions at him, but he was resistant to them. Billie finally managed to vanquish him by throwing a potion into his mouth. The effect of the potion looked like Piper's power of Molecular Combustion, so it might have been a similar potion to the one Piper created to replicate her power in Charmed and Dangerous.


  • Telekinesis: Used by The Dogan to move Billie's potions into his hand and to deflect her potions.
  • Shimmering: Type of teleportation used by The Dogan and Tomar.
  • Flight: Type of Transportation used by Reinhardt in Billie's flashback.
  • Shapeshifting: Used by Abet to shapeshift into a woman.
  • Orbing: Type of Teleportation used by Paige and Jonnah.
  • Telekinetic Orbing: Used by Paige to close Seth Perra's window, to tie him to his bed with belts and to orb socks into his mouth.
  • Hovering: Used by Paige while posing as the ghost of Carol Flowers to scare Seth Perra.
  • Energy Ball: Used by The Dogan to attack Billie and to vanquish a demon at Magic School.


  • Book of Shadows - The Halliwell Family's magical tome. In addition to spells and potion recipes, the Book of Shadows contains information on warlocks, demons, and other supernatural beings. It was created by their ancestor, Melinda Warren, and was passed down every generation.
  • Pumpkins - Piper carved several pumpkins as decoration in the Manor for Halloween.

Notes and Trivia

  • This episode introduces the kidnapping of Christy Jenkins, which becomes a major plot as the season goes on.
  • This is the first episode with the name "Billie" on it. The next and last one is "Kill Billie: Vol. 2".
  • This is the second episode of Charmed in which the sisters celebrate Halloween. The first time they celebrated it was in "All Halliwell's Eve". For Paige, this episode marks the first time she's seen celebrating.
  • Paige shows the journalists the attic and the broken sewing machine from Grams, blown up by Piper in "Look Who's Barking".
  • Paige talks about the history of the Halliwell Manor, previously heard in "Is There a Woogy in the House?".
  • Paige mentions that the house was built in 1898, however the actual house in real life was built in 1903.
  • This episode is filled with personal gain, but no consequences are shown.
  • Billie freezing when the memory of Christy's kidnapping comes back is very similar to Paige freezing after witnessing a car crash in the episode "A Paige from the Past". They both experienced an event that reminded them about a traumatic event in their childhood.
  • The scene where Phoebe says she is pregnant, followed by one of her sisters asking "Dex?" and Phoebe's response, "No, this guy I met at the gas station—of course it was Dex!" is very similar to when she first revealed that she slept with Jason. In that scene, Phoebe states "I slept with my boss," followed by one of her sisters asking, "Jason?" to which she responds with, "No, Elise—of course it was Jason!"
  • This episode marks the last appearance of Dex Lawson, even though the episode ends with Phoebe and Dex deciding to take things slow and figuring out how they feel about each other without the magic.
  • Paige's, Chris' and Piper's costumes in the end of the episode are not random; both Paige's and Chris's costumes are related to their nature- Paige is dressed as an angel, a reference to her Whitelighter half, while Chris is dressed as a magician, a reference to his witch half. Piper mouse costume is a reference to the fact she turned several journalists into rats earlier in the episode.

Cultural References

  • The title is a reference to the 2003 Quentin Tarantino movie "Kill Bill: Vol 1".
    • The close-up of Billie's eyes when she casts the spell is another allusion to the "Kill Bill" films.


  • Kaley Cuoco misreads the second part of the memory spell twice in a row by omitting the second "my".

Continuity Errors

  • Leo is seen walking into a closet, which had been converted into a nursery in Season 5.

Behind the Scenes


Piper: Great! Witch vanquishes demon, film at eleven.
Billie: But the press doesn't even know who I am! That's why I'm the perfect girl for the job. Plus, I wanna do it.
Paige: Why do you wanna do it?
Billie: So I can show you guys that I can. Come on! Please? I know I can do this.
Piper: Fine, but if you get caught on tape I will vanquish you.
Billie (to Paige): She's serious?
Paige: Eh uh...just don't get caught.

Paige: Speaking of those problems, I think I have figured out a way to get the press off of our broomsticks... (Three rats crawl next to a wall behind Piper) Holy—We have rats!
Piper: Yeah, they're everywhere, get used to it. So what's this big solution?
Paige: Where did they come from?
Piper: The San Francisco Chronicle, uhm... Daily News and the Inquirer. I found them nosing around the garbage.
Paige: So you turn them into rodents?
Piper: Well, I could've blown them up.

(The door opens. Paige and a group of reporters appear in the doorway.)
Paige: Hello. And for your enjoyment, ladies and gentlemen, a marital spat. I know, really interesting, probably belongs in the lifestyle section right under the column on stinky diapers.
Piper: (through gritted teeth) Paige, what are you doing?
Paige: Well, I am just showing these fine men and women that even though there's nothing to find, they're destroying our lives anyway. So...carry on.

Phoebe: I'm pregnant.
Paige: Dex?
Phoebe: No, this guy I met at the gas station—of course it was Dex!
