Creditors I soon must duck.

And hope my life will cease to suck.

Seamus uses a Rainbow to Teleport.

To Call for a Rainbow Road

With their Shillelagh in their hands, Leprechauns use this Spell to call for a rainbow. They use rainbows as their type of teleportation. If someone magical knows the Spell and has a Shillelagh, that person is able to call for a rainbow as well. Throughout the episode, the Spell is cast many times. It is revealed by Seamus that there are Rainbows in the sky all the time, but that humans can only see them when it's raining.

5x17P27

Paige is hit with good luck.

To Wish Good Luck

Holding a nugget, a Leprechaun casts this Spell to grant someone good luck. The Spell is cast many times throughout the episode, for example when Seamus granted good luck to each one of the Charmed Ones.

Sláinte is táinte (Health is wealth)
5x17P31

The Charmed Ones are hit with bad luck.

To Curse Someone with Bad Luck

Holding a nugget, Leprechauns can also grant someone bad luck. Saleel first used a pot full of nuggets to curse the Charmed Ones with bad luck. Later, all the leftover Leprechauns combined their bad luck on Saleel, causing him to be crushed by a meteor falling down from the sky.

Quotes

Piper: Hello! Personal gain, consequences. Do I need to remind you of the big boob fiasco?
Paige: No, my back still hurts. Don't worry I won't make anything stupid.

Jason: So, I take it you don't wanna go out?
Phoebe: No, it's funny because I, I can't. Because my cousin came into town and he needs my help with his other cousins.

Saleel: (to Jayda): One witch. Quick quiz, how many should I have?
Jayda: Three.
Saleel: Zero! They should all be dead, I never asked for prisoners!
Jayda: You miscalculated! The others found a way to turn their luck around, and Janna died because of it.
Saleel: Am I supposed to care about that?
Jayda: We'll use this witch to lure the others. You still have more gold. We can make ourselves enough good luck to make them pay for what they've done.
Saleel: I have a better idea. (He grabs Jayda's neck and Jayda gasps) I'll just do it myself. (Saleel squeeze's Jayda's neck as her skin turns red as she dies in a burst of flames, vanquished)
