Piper is getting close to opening her restaurant, but there's still plenty of work to be done, even just a day before it opens. As a result, she's barely had any time to spend with her family. Wyatt comes up with a solution when he goes to the Book of Shadows and finds the multiplication spell, which he uses to conjure up multiple Pipers.

The next morning, Leo and Piper notice the fake-Pipers around the manor and are obviously concerned by the situation. Both of their sons deny being responsible, but real-Piper decides to take advantage of it. Real-Piper gets coffee with Phoebe and notes how she was right about her needing to take a break. Real-Piper tells Phoebe that while she is taking a break to relax, one of the fake-Pipers is dealing with Wyatt while the other is covering for her at the restaurant. Phoebe, meanwhile, tells her that she has to address Wyatt's use of magic for personal gain and is worried about the potential consequences. Real-Piper goes off to the bathroom, but then another fake-Piper shows up and heads off with Phoebe to the Bay Mirror. Real-Piper goes to her restaurant, where she encounters two Pipers instead of one, thinking no one stayed home with the kids.

Real-Piper calls Phoebe, who's in her office at the Bay Mirror and still has a fake-Piper with her, and they quickly figure out that there are way more Pipers than they had previously thought. Paige then joins real-Piper at her restaurant with a fake-Piper in tow and tells her that she has been at the flower shop with the fake-Piper for the past hour. Paige asks real-Piper to explain what's going on. We then see what some of the fake-Pipers are up to: including a trio disciplining Wyatt, one cooking in the manor kitchen, one shopping with Melinda, one playing with Chris, one vanquishing a demon, and one seducing Leo.

Real-Piper decides to gather all the fake-Pipers together at the manor and tells Phoebe her plan when she begins to feel adverse effects from the spell. Real-Piper finally fills in Paige about Wyatt's spell and tells her that they need to get to the manor. Paige rounds up all the ones at the restaurant into Piper's SUV and heads to the manor while also caring for real-Piper. Leo fends off the seductive fake-Piper and everyone agrees to meet up at the manor.

At the manor, Leo takes over with Wyatt. The sisters and all the fake-Pipers arrive shortly after. They leave all the fake-Pipers in the foyer while they go upstairs to Leo and Wyatt. Leo and real-Piper ask Wyatt again about the spell. Wyatt finally admits to casting the spell and apologizes. Real-Piper also apologizes to Wyatt for not being around lately while preparing for her restaurant's opening. Phoebe then enters with the Book of Shadows. Real-Piper gets him to undo the spell, but instead of reading it backwards, Wyatt puts his glowing hands on the Book. Paige enters the room and tells everyone that all the fake-Pipers have disappeared.

The restaurant opens successfully that night, with Wyatt apologizing for the trouble by wearing a little tuxedo while handing out hors d'oeuvres. The sisters reminisce about P3, and Piper admits how owning the club gave her the confidence to follow her dream and open up her own restaurant. The entire family then gathers in the back courtyard to make a toast to Piper. We pan outside, where the line to get in is incredibly long, and above it, we see the sign showing off the restaurant's name: Halliwell's, named in honor of her family.
