Book of Shadows[]



The entry in the Book of Shadows.

Beings of Pure
Light who's sole
purpose is to inspire
people's passion and
Like angels, they
guide us with
an unseen hand
of Inspiration.
Muses are
invisible even to
their charges and
can only be seen by
other angelic beings.


To Make a Muse Visible[]

Being of Creativity,
Show yourself now to me.
Your light that shines upon our face,
Let our vision now embrace.

To Find a Muse[]

Being of Creativity,
We call ourselves now to Thee.
Your light now darkened in a ring,
Shall feel the Power of Three we bring.

To Make a Muse Invisible[]

Being of Creativity,
Hide yourself now from me.
Your light that shines upon our face,
From our vision now erase.

Phoebe Halliwell's Warlock Vanquishing Spell[]

Evil is a faithful foe,
but Good does battle best,
We witches will, with these words
waste the Warlock's Evil zest.


  • Piper creates a flash potion to hinder warlocks from blinking.

Episode Stills[]


Cole: I don't know if sending your sisters away was a good idea. I don't have powers anymore, and I can't protect you if there's an attack.
Phoebe: Well, my sisters are in calling range, and more importantly, I'm in kissing range.

Piper: Great, well, I say the only good Source is a dead Source.

Paige: Who's going to kill us?
Piper: No one.
Paige: That's new.

Paige: Who's attacking us?
Piper: No one.
Paige: Right on, I get the weekend off.
Piper: See now that is the spirit.

Piper: Cole, you're struggling, right? Trying to figure out how to be this new person.
Cole: I thought we were here to talk about warlocks.
Leo: No.
Piper: What you don't get is that Phoebe is trying to do the exact same thing. She's always been the youngest sister, the eternal child. Carefree, fun loving.
Cole: And?
Leo: And in a minute, she lost Prue, discovered Paige, and became the middle sister.
Piper: And to top it all off, you propose. The idea of marriage, being that much of a grownup, is terrifying to Phoebe.
Cole: Did she say that?
Piper: No, she didn't have to, I'm her big sister, I've known her only, oh, her whole life.
