Notes and Trivia
- This is the twelfth episode to have the word "witch" in the title.
- Holly Marie Combs was actually pregnant and showing when this episode was taped. Hence, large clothes and trick camera angles were used to hide this fact.
- As from this episode on, Brian Krause has a shorter, darker hairstyle than that of the opening credit clips and previous episodes.
- When Paige sees Grams in the past, she is doing a chakra cleanse of herself. In "Used Karma", Paige mentions a Chakra cleanse in the Book of Shadows.
- When past Leo introduces himself to Paige, he mentions the astrological sign of the same name. Ironically, Paige's zodiac sign is a Leo, having been born on August 2, 1977.
- This is the last time we see the Charmed Ones face a warlock in the television series. The next time the sisters would face a warlock is in Season 9.
- This is the last time we see Phoebe use her power of levitation on the show.
- Piper loses her powers for the fourteenth time, Phoebe for the twelfth time and Paige for the seventh time.
- When Chris is getting swallowed by the Slime Demon in the attic, Piper's Fearless Spell from "A Witch's Tail, Part 2" can be seen written on the wall.
- Magic appeared to be used much more openly in the sixties. For instance, Penny had no qualms about chanting a spell to turn the cops' nightsticks into flowers in front of everyone.
- In Robin's spell she calls upon the "Crone". The Crone was a demonic seer in Charmed's fifth season.
- This episode scored 5.3 million viewers.
- The grandfather clock is broken again in this episode.
- The episode title is a play on words to the 1969 event Woodstock - a free festival where nearly 500,000 people came to celebrate peace and love.
- The song hippie-Grams sings to Wyatt is the 60's protest anthem "We Shall Not Be Moved".
- Paige claims in this episode that she was born "in the year of the Ox" and therefore is a natural leader. If this were true, Paige would've had to have been born in either 1973 or 1985, neither of which is the case. Rose McGowan actually was born in 1973.
- When Phoebe says the spell to summon Grams, she accidentally says, "Come to thee, I summon thee," instead of, "Come to me, I summon thee."
- When the sisters are in 1967, they have a look in the Book of Shadows. After a little search, Phoebe finds a much thinner book. However, when Allen caught Robin, the Book of Shadows can be seen behind Robin, on its stand, completely filled with pages.
- When Leo, Grams and Chris are running down the stairs to escape the slime, it is clear that Wyatt is replaced by a stunt doll.
- When Phoebe levitates as the bait and the Slime Demon is charging toward her underground, from the shot that is pointed to the ground, her arms can be seen moving. However, when the shot changes, her arms haven't moved.
- This episode originally was meant to be written about Patty as a young hippie; one of the episode's purposes being for Paige to get to know her biological mother better. However, Finola Hughes was unavailable, and the episode was re-written for Grams instead. Because of this, there are a number of inconsistencies in the timeline.
- It is said in the episode "Necromancing the Stone" that Grams' romance with the Necromancer is the reason she gave up on love and began hating men. However, that is contradicted in part in this episode, where it is said that Grams gave up on love and became bitter after the death of her first husband Allen.
- Chris: No, she's a lot late. Paige used to be the first one to a vanquish. What's wrong with her?
- Piper: She's in love, that's hardly wrong.
- Darryl: How much longer is this gonna take?
- Piper: (to Chris) Go see what Phoebe's doing.
- (Chris orbs out.)
- Darryl: Where'd he go?
- Piper: Hong Kong.
- Darryl: Hong Kong? This is the last time I work ground control for you guys.
- Phoebe: Okay. Be careful of my origami, that tiger took two frickin' hours.
- Phoebe: No way. I refuse to believe that Grams ever wore anything this hot.
- Piper: Yeah, I figured her more for steel toed orthopaedics, you know, the better to kick your ass with.
- Grams: And Paige moved out? When?
- Phoebe: Uh, a few weeks ago. But we're handling everything.
- Grams: Dear, you have Paige stuck in the past and a demonic blob roaming the manor. Exactly how are you handling things?
- Penny: Glad to know I have groovy grandkids. Just the same, I think I'm gonna work on a forgetting spell for after you go. You know, keep the cosmic order.
- Paige: Aww, I like this Grams, I don't wanna forget you.
- Phoebe: What about Grams?
- Leo: She didn't make it.
- (The basement door opens and smoke pours out. Grams walks out, coughing.)
- Grams: Nonsense. You can't damage an old war horse like me. I'm already dead.
- Phoebe: Yay, Grams, I'm so glad you're back.
- Paige: Hey there, sun god.
- Leo: Hey, that was a long time ago. Let's just keep that between us, okay?
