ROSE MCGOWAN (NARRATOR): (v.o.) Previously on "Charmed" ...
[Scene from 8X05: Rewitched]
[INT. MANOR - ATTIC -- NIGHT]
(Billie finds a spell in the Book of Shadows.)
BILLIE JENKINS: (reading) "To Make a Lover's Dream Come True" ... maybe at
least this one will help Phoebe out.
[EXT. MANOR - FRONT PORCH - DAY]
(Phoebe and Dex are holding each other on the front porch. Phoebe is in a white
wedding gown while Dex is wearing a tux.)
DEX LAWSON: I love you, Mrs. Lawson.
(She kisses him.)
[INT. MANOR - CONSERVATORY -- DAY]
(Dex and Phoebe talk.)
DEX LAWSON: If you wanna go down to city hall and get this fixed --
PHOEBE: To get it annulled?
DEX LAWSON: Well, yeah.
[INT. MANOR - LIVING ROOM -- NIGHT]
(Phoebe talks with Paige.)
PHOEBE: Maybe we made a mistake faking our own death.
[INT. DEX LAWSON'S LOFT - DAY]
(Orb lights swirl around her and she changes into Julie Bennet. Dex is
speechless and surprised. He falls to the floor with at thud.)
TRIQUETRA FLASH TO:
[INT. MANOR - LIVING ROOM/ FOYER -- NIGHT]
(Agent Murphy shows Billie his ID.)
AGENT MURPHY: Agent Murphy, Homeland Security.
[INT. HOMELAND SECURITY - MURPHY'S OFFICE - DAY]
(Piper, Phoebe and Paige are back in their own identities and talk with Agent
PIPER: You wanna know more about who we are and what we do, we'll tell you.
PHOEBE: And help you out with a few cases along the way. If you help us.
[INT. HOMELAND SECURITY - LOBBY -- DAY]
(Agent Murphy is talking to a group from the media.)
AGENT MURPHY: I can't talk about the specifics of the case the sisters are
involved in, okay?
[EXT. P-3 - FRONT - NIGHT]
(The door opens. Paige and Piper step out into the club.)
AGENT MURPHY: (v.o.) All I can say is it involved a threat to national
security, that our agency got involved to protect them.
(Paige and Piper nervously face the crowds.)
PAIGE: Welcome back.
END OF PREVIOUSLY ON
[INT. MANOR - KITCHEN -- DAY]
(Piper is working at the kitchen table, carving a large pumpin. Lined over the
table is the issue of THE BAY MIRROR with the headline, "What's The Big Secret?.
A photo of the sisters grace the front page.)
(On the newspaper is the guts of the pumpkin. Piper has an hand-held electric
knife and is using it to carve the pumpkin. Paige walks in.)
PAIGE: Dang. What'd that pumpkin ever do to you?
PIPER: Nothing. I'm venting.
(The phone rings. Paige automatically heads over to the phone to answer it, but
Piper stops her.)
PIPER: No. Don't get that. It could be Oprah's people again. They want to do
a special on lady spies.
PAIGE: Lady spies?
(The phone continues to ring.)
PIPER: You heard me, and some producer's been calling for the movie rights to
our cover story.
PAIGE: I guess it's better than TV, right?
PIPER: Trust me. We won't be doing TV either.
PAIGE: Well, it's, uh -- it's a little late for that, actually.
(Billie walks in.)
BILLIE JENKINS: Little late for what?
PAIGE: What are you doing here?
BILLIE JENKINS: Oh, it's funny you should ask. Actually, I -
PIPER: (interrupts) Ya know, we really need to do something about this. It's
PAIGE: It's gonna blow over.
PIPER: Really? Does this look like it's blowing over?
(Piper reaches over and points to THE BAY MIRROR newspaper front page story on
them. Paige walks over to the table and sits down.)
BILLIE JENKINS: It's a good picture.
(Piper glares at her.)
BILLIE JENKINS: Well, it is.
PAIGE: Okay. This isn't about the witch secret. They're just trying to figure
out what we're doing with homeland security, and you know what? They're not
going to find out anything.
PIPER: Well, they're going to keep looking until they find something, and that
something could easily turn into a witch hunt.
BILLIE JENKINS: Oh, speaking of hunting --
PAIGE: Nothing is going to happen.
(Billie turns and heads for the cupboard and the sink to get herself a drink of
PIPER: Really? 'Cause something happened to Prue. We die to have normal lives.
We come back from the dead to get our old lives back, and, somehow, we end up
living in a fishbowl. (Piper points the knife at Paige.) You know, Agent
Murphy was supposed to protect us from this.
(Paige reaches over and removes the knife out of Piper's grip.)
PAIGE: Okay. Uhh. I'm going to disarm you now. It's all gonna be ok. I
PIPER: How can you promise that?
PAIGE: Well, I'm not entirely sure, but--but I promise that it's gonna be,
because you know what? You're just gonna take care of Halloween, and I am gonna
deal with getting the press off of our backs.
BILLIE JENKINS: (interrupts) And I will focus on my demon.
PIPER: What demon?
BILLIE JENKINS: Just the one I've been tracking. No big deal. I can take him.
PAIGE: Oh, no. Actually, you're not taking anybody.
BILLIE JENKINS: No, somebody's gotta take him down. He's--he's killing other
demons and gaining power by the day.
PIPER: Great. Witch vanquishes demon. Film at 11.
BILLIE JENKINS: No. 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 want to do it?
BILLIE JENKINS: 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.
(Thinking she's joking, Billie laughs. Piper returns to her pumpkin.)
BILLIE JENKINS: (to Paige) She's serious?
PAIGE: (shrugs) Eh. Just don't get caught.
(The doorbell rings.)
PIPER: A day early?
(Paige stands up to check.)
[INT. MANOR - FOYER - DAY - CONTINUOUS]
(Piper approaches the front door. Through the stained glass, we see shadows of
people standing on the porch. Piper reaches out and opens the door. Cameras
flash in her eyes as reporters clamor to ask their questions.)
(Standing in front of the pack is Seth Parra, tape recorder in hand.)
SETH PARRA: Seth Parra, Bay Mirror. So, what's the big secret?
(Piper laughs weakly as she shuts the front door.)
PIPER: We're screwed.

ROLL TITLE CREDITS
[EXT. HALLIWELL MANOR (STOCK) - DAY]
[INT. MANOR - MAIN HALL / DINING ROOM -- DAY]
(Piper sits at the dining room table separating the Halloween candy into various
piles. Paige bounds down the stairs and stops when she sees her.)
PAIGE: Hey. I think I figured out how to, uh -- what are you doing?
PIPER: I'm organizing the candy for tomorrow. I have chocolate, sugar free,
and chocolate with nuts.
PAIGE: Well, isn't part of the fun of Halloween the whole mixed bowl thing?
PIPER: No. I don't want any allergic reactions or angry parents. We've got
enough problems as it is.
PAIGE: Speaking of those problems, I think I have figured out how to get the
press off of our broomsticks.
(She gasps when she sees three rats scampering along the wall.)
PAIGE: Holy -- we have rats.
(Piper doesn't react.)
PIPER: Yeah, they're everywhere. Get used to 'em. So what's this big
PAIGE: (suspiciously) Where did they come from?
PIPER: The San Francisco Chronicle, uh, The Daily News, and The Enquirer. I
found them nosing around the garbage.
PAIGE: So you turned them into rodents?
PIPER: Well, I could've blown them up.
PAIGE: Uh, here's the thing. If we get Phoebe to talk to this reporter who's
leading the charge -- luckily he works at her paper--we can --
PIPER: How's that gonna help?
(Paige sits down.)
PAIGE: Because ... if she can convince him that we are completely
uninteresting, then hopefully he'll just go away and take all the lemming
reporters with him.
PIPER: They're more like rats.
PAIGE: And I will be the pied piper of Prescott Street, leading them away from
the manor. Sadly, Piper, you have to turn them back.
PIPER: (groans) No!
(Paige stands up and leaves.)
PIPER: You're no fun.
(Piper gets up and follows the rats into the conservatory. The rats are headed
out the door. She throws the potions bottle at them. It explodes, sending a
cloud of white smoke everywhere. Three reporters are standing outside the door
looking very confused.)
PIPER: What are y'all waiting for? You're trespassing. This is private
property. What are you, crazy?
[INT. MANOR - FOYER - DAY -- CONTINUOUS]
(The front door opens and Leo squeezes into the house past the group of
reporters standing on the porch. He sees Paige.)
LEO: Where did they come from?
PAIGE: Pest problem. I'll take care of it.
(Piper steps in from the conservatory.)
PIPER: If you don't, I will.
PAIGE: Piper, you cannot blow up the entire media. Wish me luck.
(Paige opens the door and heads out into the group of reporters, the door
closing behind her.)
(Leo carries the package into the dining room and puts it on the table with the
other piles of candy.)
LEO: Well, it's getting worse. Now the women at the preschool think I'm some
kind of freaking leper.
LEO: Because they think I'm married to a spy. That's why.
PIPER: (chuckles) Well, better that than to a witch.
(Piper reaches for the package and checks the candy inside.)
PIPER: Why'd you get candy corn? Nobody likes candy corn.
LEO: They were out of everything else.
PIPER: Well, you gotta go somewhere else and get more.
LEO: More? We have twelve bags. That's more than we gave out all last year.
PIPER: Yeah, well, you know what, last year we weren't famous, okay? I don't
want to have to turn off the lights and pretend like we're not home. I want the
boys to have a nice Halloween if its the last thing we do.
LEO: But the boys aren't even three. They're not gonna remember.
PIPER: You know what? I will. Come on. Don't argue with me. Can't you just
go get the candy? Is that really such a big deal? Is that a problem?
(Leo swallows any reply and turns to head back out.)
[INT. THE BAY MIRROR - PHOEBE'S OFFICE -- DAY]
(Distracted, Phoebe stares out the window as Paige vents.)
PAIGE: Piper is freaking out.
PAIGE: Yeah. The press is rummaging through the trash. The phone is ringing
off the hook. She's worried about exposure, and, frankly, so am I.
PHOEBE: Hey, do you know if Dex called?
PAIGE: Dex? Are you listening to me?
PHOEBE: Yes. I am listening to you. I'm sorry. It's just we haven't really
talked since I told him I was a witch.
PAIGE: Right. Which brings us back to exposure, okay? And that brings us
back to --
PHOEBE: I don't even know if he wants to see me again. I mean, I wouldn't
blame him if he didn't.
PAIGE: Ok. Yeah. You're right. Love sucks. How 'bout bringing the focus just
back around a little bit?
PHOEBE: Yes. Yes. You're right. You're right. I'm sorry.
PAIGE: Ok. So what we need to do is try to get Seth Parra off of our backs.
PHOEBE: Uh, that's not gonna happen.
PHOEBE: Because he is a hardcore journalist, and he's determined to do anything
to get back in the big leagues.
PAIGE: What's his deal?
PHOEBE: Uh, he used to be at The Times, and he did this big mafia expose and
exposed his source in the process.
PAIGE: All right. Wasn't that, like, a call girl? A Carol - Carol --
PHOEBE: Yeah. Flowers.
PHOEBE: She got killed because of it, and her death has haunted him ever since.
PAIGE: That's horrible, but the haunting could be good for us.
PHOEBE: Look, no us, okay, Paige? I just -- I can't right now.
PAIGE: Okay, Phoebe, this affects all of us. What exactly is more important
than keeping our secret right now?
PHOEBE: Uh ... (Phoebe sits down and takes a breath.) I'm pregnant.
(Paige stops and sinks down onto the couch.)
PHOEBE: No. Actually, some guy that I met at the gas station. Yes. Of course
PAIGE: Well, are you sure?
PHOEBE: Yeah. I took the test this morning.
PAIGE: What are you gonna do?
PHOEBE: I don't know. I mean, I guess I'm gonna have to talk to him, but ... I
don't even know if he'll talk to me.
PAIGE: Well, the hits just keep on coming.
[INT. MAGIC SCHOOL - GREAT HALL -- DAY]
(The Dogon talks with a group of demons.)
DOGON: And so do demons, but instead of fighting them, I plan on leading them.
TOMAR: How do you expect to lead demons when you keep killing them to steal
DOGON: You respect power, don't you?
TOMAR: Of course. But that's not --
DOGON: Then that's your answer. It's kill or be killed in the underworld. You
know that. But with the return of The Charmed Ones, one must rise again to
DOGON: Careful, Tomar, or I'll steal your power next.
(Tomar looks away.)
DOGON: Now, who's next on the list?
(The voices fade into the background.)
TOMAR: A shapeshifter -- Abet. He operates ...
[INT. MAGIC SCHOOL - HALLWAY - DAY -- CONTINUOUS]
(In the hallway Billie is dressed in black and spiked heels. She makes her way
to the main hall. Her boot creaks and she stops. The guard standing at the
doorway hears and looks at her.)
GUARD: Who are you?
(She walks up to him and motions for him to be quiet.)
BILLIE JENKINS: Shh. I don't want them to hear.
GUARD: Hear what?
BILLIE JENKINS: This.
(She steps forward, covers his mouth as she stabs him with her athame.)
(He explodes and she burns her fingers.)
BILLIE JENKINS: Oww! Uhh!
(The conversation coming from the Great Hall continues.)
DOGON: Does he have any offensive powers?
TOMAR: None you have to worry about, as long as you get him before he changes
(Her hands full of potions bottles, Billie makes her way to the Great Hall. She
peers in through the open door and sees The Dogon and Tomar.)
DOGON: Do you know where to find him?
TOMAR: His territory's east market. He preys in alleys.
DOGON: Don't they all?
(The Dogon flicks his black cape. This triggers a repressed memory in Billie
and she gasps.)
[INT. BILLIE'S BEDROOM - NIGHT - FLASHBACK]
(The shadow of a cloaked figure rises against the walls. Lightning flashes.
The girls' bedroom double doors to the balcony open wide.)
(Five year-old Billie Jenkins gasps as she wakes up and gets out of bed.)
(The lit Jack o-lantern sits on the counter. A child screams.)
(End of flashback. Resume to present.)
(Surprised, Billie gasps. She drops the potions bottles and they clank to the
TOMAR: I think we should start over by --
DOGON: What was that?
(Billie turns and leaves.)
(The Dogon heads to the door and hears footsteps running down the hallway. He
opens the door and sees no one there.)
(He looks down and sees the potions bottles. He holds out his hand and the
bottles fly off the floor and to him. He looks at the bottles grimly.)
[INT. DEX'S LOFT/GALLERY -- DAY]
(Dex opens the door and finds Phoebe there. He doesn't appear too thrilled to
DEX LAWSON: Hi.
PHOEBE: Hi. Can I come in?
DEX LAWSON: Okay.
(She steps inside. He closes the door behind her.)
DEX LAWSON: So how you been?
(He walks across to the other side of the room.)
PHOEBE: Wondering how you've been. That good, huh?
DEX LAWSON: What do you want me to say, Phoebe? I mean, give me a break. It's
not every day you find out you're married to a witch.
PHOEBE: At least we got it annulled.
DEX LAWSON: That's not the point.
PHOEBE: Yeah, I know. (sighs) How can I help you with this?
DEX LAWSON: I don't know. I wish I did. It's just a lot, you know? I didn't
even know witches existed before. You can turn into other people, you can see
the future, you can win the lottery whenever you want.
PHOEBE: Actually, we can't do that. We're not allowed.
DEX LAWSON: There are rules?
PHOEBE: Well, yeah.
DEX LAWSON: I don't know how to process this.
PHOEBE: I know.
DEX LAWSON: Look, you wanted to tell me something?
PHOEBE: Can we go for a walk, get some fresh air, please?
[INT. DEX'S LOFT/GALLERY -- DAY]
(The door opens. Seth Parra and his camera man are there, snapping photos,
SETH PARRA: So what's the deal, Phoebe? Is he part of this, too? Does he know
what's going on?
PHOEBE: Are you following me?
SETH PARRA: Damn right I am. So tell me, were you two sleeping together before
this witness protection thing or is this a new relationship?
(Dex closes the door.)
[INT. MANOR - KITCHEN -- DAY]
(A large cloud of white smoke rises from the boiling pot on the stove in front
of Piper. Phoebe sits across the table from her.)
PHOEBE: "I like you, Phoebe, a lot, but you're a witch, so bye-bye," you know?
And that's just a little bit of my bigger problem.
(Piper fills potions vials with the liquid from the pot.)
PIPER: What did you tell Paige? She's got some hair-brained scheme up her
PHOEBE: You know what? I am a wreck. My boobs feel enormous, and all I want
to do is eat all of this candy.
PIPER: Have a candy corn. We got plenty.
PHOEBE: Why does everything have to be so difficult? I mean, why can't it just
be easy? And I'm sorry, but what am I supposed to tell Dex? "Hey, I know you
don't want to be with me 'cause I'm a witch, but you know what? I'm pregnant,
PIPER: (shocked) What?
(A camera flashes through the window. Piper walks over to the window and
readjusts the curtains.)
PIPER: Vermin! Ohh! Uh, uh ... could you repeat that?
PHOEBE: Wait, I told you, didn't I?
PIPER: No, you didn't tell me. I think I would remember the small embryo part!
PHOEBE: Oh, you know what, I might have told Paige.
PIPER: You told Paige and you didn't tell me?
PHOEBE: Well, I'm pregnant, okay? I'm a little scatter-brained right now.
PIPER: Well, I'm sorry, it's a little too early for you to use that excuse.
Are you sure?
PHOEBE: I took the test.
PIPER: Well, nothing's for sure until you see your doctor and have a blood
test. Did you do that?
PHOEBE: No, but it all times out, doesn't it? I just don't understand why it
can't be with a guy who accepts me for who I am.
PIPER: Well, he's obviously scared and confused about who you are. I mean, can
you blame him? The only thing you can do is try to talk to him.
PHOEBE: I've tried.
PIPER: Well, so you need to try again. I mean, if he's not gonna listen, then
you need to write him a letter. He reads your column, doesn't he?
PHOEBE: Wait. Write him a letter in "Ask Phoebe"?
PIPER: Yeah! That should get his attention. Drastic times call for drastic
measures, and you guys need to work this out soon, especially if there's a new
baby to think about.
(Billie walks in. She stops when she sees them.)
BILLIE JENKINS: Oh. Hello.
PIPER: What happened to you?
(She looks at her bandaged-wrapped hand.)
BILLIE JENKINS: Oh, this? It's nothing. You should see the other guy.
PIPER: Did you vanquish him?
BILLIE JENKINS: No, but I'm going to. I just have to go get some more potions,
so ... bye.
(Billie walks out of the room. Piper and Phoebe follow her.)
[INT. MANOR - DINING ROOM /STAIRS - DAY - CONTINUOUS]
PIPER: What happened to the potions you had?
BILLIE JENKINS: Um, I just didn't have enough of them.
PHOEBE: Why not?
BILLIE JENKINS: Well, I sort of left them.
PIPER: Left them with the demons?
BILLIE JENKINS: You know, it's no big deal. No worries. Rome wasn't built in
a day, right?
(Billie turns to leave up the stairs, but Piper stops her.)
PHOEBE: Tell us what happened.
(She sighs and sits down.)
BILLIE JENKINS: I don't know. I was completely prepared. I researched the
demon, I mixed the potions correctly and -- but I just froze.
PIPER: You froze? What do you mean? Why?
BILLIE JENKINS: I don't know why. It was so weird. It was nothing that he
did, but it was like ... it was like deja vu.
PHOEBE: So wait, you think you've seen him before?
PIPER: How is that possible?
(She shakes her head.)
QUICK FLASHES OF MEMORY - Lightning flashes, thunder, and the lit jack-o lantern
on the table.
(Billie stares out in front of her with fear. Piper and Phoebe turn around to
see Billie staring at the carved pumpkin on the far table.)
PHOEBE: What's the matter?
BILLIE JENKINS: Oh, nothing. Those things have always creeped me out.
PIPER: You can fight demons, but you're afraid of pumpkins?
BILLIE JENKINS: I'm not afraid of pumpkins.
PHOEBE: Okay, well, you're obviously afraid of something, otherwise you
wouldn't have frozen, right? And it's okay. I mean, it happens to all of us.
You just have to figure out why. You know, what triggered it. (to Piper) Do
you think it's some kind of latent memory?
BILLIE JENKINS: Latent memory?
PIPER: Unresolved issue. Look, whatever it is, you gotta figure it out, and
until then, you're not fighting any more demons.
BILLIE JENKINS: Oh, come on, everyone has baggage.
PIPER: Yeah, well, everybody doesn't fight demons. Now there's a first-aid kit
upstairs for your hand.
(Billie sighs and gets up. She heads upstairs. She pauses as she hears Phoebe
(Phoebe turns to Piper.)
PHOEBE: You think we're expecting too much from her?
PIPER: I don't think she's ready for any of this. Could be making a big
(Phoebe and Piper turn and head back to the kitchen.)
[INT. MANOR - ATTIC - DAY -- CONTINUOUS]
(Billie enters the attic and heads for the Book of Shadows. She flips to a
page, "To Erase Painful Memories".)
BILLIE JENKINS: Here goes nothing.
(She reads the spell.)
After this cruel memory is seen and said,
Erase these thoughts from my heart and head.
(A gold glow encases her head. Billie closes her eyes and remembers:
[INT. BILLIE'S BEDROOM - NIGHT - FLASHBACK]
(A little girl screams. A little girl gets out of bed. The caped shadow is on
the wall, then disappears.)
(The balcony doors blow open.)
(A girl screams.)
(The lit Jack o'lantern on the table is there, then it's gone.)
END OF MEMORY
(Billie's eyes open. She takes a couple of breaths, then smiles.)
BILLIE JENKINS: Time to go kick some ass.
(She heads out.)
[INT. P-3 -- DAY]
(Seth Parra and Paige enter the club.)
SETH PARRA: Huh. Interesting place to meet. Planning on taking me out, are ya?
PAIGE: I would never go out with you.
SETH PARRA: Yeah. I was speaking metaphorically.
PAIGE: Ah. Well, I wasn't.
SETH PARRA: Okay. All right, come on. What's going on? Why did you drag me
all the way down here? You gonna give me an exclusive or what?
PAIGE: No. I brought you here to warn you.
SETH PARRA: A warning, huh? Yeah?
PAIGE: Yeah. You might want to, uh, you know, back off on your story.
SETH PARRA: Oh, yeah, and why is that?
PAIGE: That would be because we're still working on a case for Homeland
Security which is very dangerous and ongoing.
SETH PARRA: Really? Tell me about it.
(He takes out a tape recorder and turns it on.)
PAIGE: Some things are more important than your story, some things are best
left quiet, and some things are actually for the greater good.
SETH PARRA: Yeah. What a load of crap. What could possibly be so important,
so dangerous, to make the government wanna recruit sisters? Mmm. I don't buy
it. There's more to this, and I'm gonna find out what.
PAIGE: Even if it means hurting innocent people?
SETH PARRA: (shrugs) That's not my responsibility.
PAIGE: Like Carol Flowers wasn't your responsibility?
(He looks at her.)
QUICK FLASH OF CAROL FLOWERS
SETH PARRA: Screw you.
(He turns and leaves.)
PAIGE: You know, we're never gonna talk.
[INT. THE BAY MIRROR - BULLPEN -- DAY]
(Phoebe comes out of her office.)
PHOEBE: Sophie, is it too late to make the evening edition?
SOPHIE: You want me to stop them?
PHOEBE: Yeah. I wanna swap out some of my advice.
(Sophie picks up the phone.)
SOPHIE: Hi. Uh, yeah, can you hold "Lifestyle"? Great. Thanks. I'll have
new copy down in five.
PHOEBE: You are a lifesaver.
SOPHIE: Are you kidding? We're all just so happy to have you back that we'd do
anything for you. Uh, not that I didn't like having your cousin around. She ...
she was your real cousin, wasn't she? Or was she undercover, too?
SOPHIE: Oh. "Pouting on Prescott"?
PHOEBE: Yeah. Don't tell anybody. I'm just trying to reach out to someone
that I hurt.
SETH PARRA: Were you behind this, too, huh? Were you?
PHOEBE: I don't know what you're talking about.
(Seth comes to Phoebe.)
SETH PARRA: You know damn well what I'm talkin' about. Dragging my ass down
to P-3, warning me. And just so you know, all you and your sisters just did was
make things worse for you.
(Seth storms off.)
PHOEBE: Sophie, will you get one of my sisters on the phone, please?
(Sophie picks up the phone to make the call.)
[INT. MANOR - DINING ROOM / MAIN HALL -- DAY]
(Leo dumps the package of candies out on the dining room table and heads for the
stairs. He looks tired and exhausted, and sucking on a sucker.)
(Billie zooms down the stairs nearly knocking Leo over.)
LEO: Whoa. Watch out.
BILLIE JENKINS: Sorry, sorry. Gotta go.
LEO: Wait. Whoa. Wh-where?
BILLIE JENKINS: Don't I have a demon to vanquish?
LEO: I don't know. Do ya?
BILLIE JENKINS: Did you get any Snickers?
LEO: Uh, does Piper know about this?
BILLIE JENKINS: Yes, of course she knows about this. Isn't that what I'm doing
here, so I can fight demons so you guys can have a life?
LEO: Such as it is.
BILLIE JENKINS: Wish me luck.
(Leo watches as Billie heads out.)
(In the dining room, Billie passes by the dining room table. She stops and
looks at the pumpkin.)
BILLIE JENKINS: Boo.
[EXT. SAN FRANCISCO CITY (STOCK) - NIGHT]
[EXT. ALLEYWAY -- NIGHT]
(Billie walks into the alleyway.)
BILLIE JENKINS: Marco ...
(There's no answer.)
BILLIE JENKINS: You're supposed to say "Polo." Come on. I know you're here,
Dogon. I tracked you.
(The Dogon and Tomar shimmer into the alley.)
THE DOGON: Cocky little witch, aren't you? Or foolish.
BILLIE JENKINS: I prefer the former.
TOMAR: Kill her!
(Tomar takes a step forward. Dogon holds up a long-nailed, boney hand.)
DOGON: Not yet.
(This triggers the same memory in Billie.)
[INT. BILLIE'S BEDROOM - NIGHT - FLASHBACK]
(A little girl screams. A little girl gets out of bed. The crawls to another
seat and looks up. A long metal-like claw rips through the ceiling like paper.)
(The girl screams.)
(The creature in black flies out the open balcony doors.)
END OF MEMORY
(Dogon grabs the potions out from Billie's grip. He catches them perfectly
leaving Billie defenseless.)
DOGON: You seem to have a little trouble holding on to these.
Billie turns and runs. Dogon throws the potions at Billie, nearly hitting her
as she dives into the pile of trash in the alley.)
BILLIE JENKINS: Aah! Ohh!
(Billie gets up and runs away.)
(Tomar makes to follow her, but Dogon stops her.)
DOGON: No, let her go. She's not worth the effort. Besides, we have a demon
to wait for.
(Dogon and Tomar shimmer out.)
[INT. THE BAY MIRROR - BULLPEN / PHOEBE'S OFFICE -- NIGHT]
(Phoebe sits at her desk. Everyone else has gone home for the night. Finally,
she picks up her bag and heads out. She stops just as Dex enters the bullpen.)
DEX LAWSON: Ahhh. Hi. Interesting advice. "Do whatever it takes to get
somebody you've hurt to call, especially if he's a sculptor." (amused)
Obviously, you had a very narrow target audience.
PHOEBE: Well, tonight I do.
DEX LAWSON: How'd you, uh, know I'd read it?
PHOEBE: I didn't. It was my sister's idea.
DEX LAWSON: Thank her for me. Look, I'm sorry if I've been a jerk about all of
this. It just ...
PHOEBE: It's okay, really. I mean, it's completely understandable.
DEX LAWSON: Sounds like you've been through this before.
PHOEBE: Yeah. Pretty much every time I fall for a guy, this seems to happen
DEX LAWSON: Did you fall for me?
PHOEBE: Dex, you know I did.
DEX LAWSON: No, actually, I don't. That's kind of the problem. You said you
had a, uh ... what did you call it? A vision or something, a ...
DEX LAWSON: That we were gonna be married, right?
PHOEBE: Well, yeah, but the whole getting married thing was because of a spell.
DEX LAWSON: A spell?
PHOEBE: Yeah, you -- witchcraft, magic, abracadabra stuff. You know. A friend
of ours cast it. I had nothing to do with it.
DEX LAWSON: Yeah, see, and that's kind of my question. Look, I don't pretend
to understand everything that's happened here -- I may never -- but between you
pretending to be somebody else, premonitions, the spells, how can you be sure
you really did fall for me? How can I?
[INT. MANOR - ATTIC -- NIGHT]
(Billie rushes into the attic and stops abruptly when she sees Paige over at the
Book of Shadows.)
BILLIE JENKINS: Paige!
PAIGE: Hey, honey, how you doin'? What's wrong? You don't look so well.
BILLIE JENKINS: Yeah. I'm not feeling too great.
PAIGE: Well, then why aren't you home resting?
BILLIE JENKINS: I wanted to check something out in the book about the Dogon,
you know, just in case I ever go up against him again. Don't want to let you
guys down next time.
PAIGE: Well, as long as next time isn't any time soon, how about you leave the
demons to us for a while, okay?
(Paige heads out.)
BILLIE JENKINS: Yeah, right.
(Once she's gone, Billie casts the "To Erase Painful Memories" spell again.)
After this cruel memory is seen and said,
erase these thoughts from my heart and head."
[INT. BILLIE'S BEDROOM - NIGHT - FLASHBACK]
(A little girl gets out of bed. The crawls to another seat and looks up. A
long metal-like claw rips through the ceiling like paper.)
(The rip in the ceiling vanishes.)
(The creature in black flies out the open balcony doors, a little girl in his

END OF MEMORY
(Billie opens her eyes and takes several deep breaths.)
[INT. PARRA RESIDENCE - SETH'S BEDROOM -- NIGHT]
(The clock reads 11:52p. There's a half-filled bottle of hard alcohol on the
table. Wind blows through the open window.)
(Seth is sleeping on his stomach in the center of the bed.)
(Paige orbs in.)
(She looks at the windows, then back at Seth sleeping.)
(She swallows the potion and changes into the ghost of Carol Flowers.)
PAIGE (AS CAROL FLOWERS): Windows!
(The windows slam shut waking Seth Parra up.)
SETH PARRA: What? What was that? What the hell? Who -- who are--who are
PAIGE (AS CAROL FLOWERS): What's the matter, Seth? Don't you recognize me?
You killed me.
(She rises up in the air)
SETH PARRA: Help. Help!
PAIGE (AS CAROL FLOWERS): Sock!
SETH PARRA: Help!
(The sock from the drawer orbs into Seth's mouth.)
SETH PARRA: (muffled) Help
PAIGE (AS CAROL FLOWERS): Belts!
(The belts from the table orb and strap Seth's wrists to the bedposts.)
PAIGE (AS CAROL FLOWERS): You used me. All you cared about was getting your
story! You didn't care what would happen to me. Look at me.
SETH PARRA: (whimpers) Mm ...
PAIGE (AS CAROL FLOWERS): Look at me! This is what your precious story did!
This is what you did! If you ever hurt anybody again, I'll be back ... for
(The apparition flies straight into Seth Parra and vanishes.)
SETH PARRA: Ohh!
[EXT. HALLIWELL MANOR (STOCK) - NIGHT]
[INT. MANOR - STAIRS/FOYER - NIGHT]
(Billie comes down the stairs. Halfway down, she stops, confidently jumps and
flips over the banister and onto the floor below. She lands effortlessly. She
steps out into the foyer, looks back, then hurries out of the house. The door
closes behind her.)
[EXT. STREET (STOCK) - NIGHT]
[EXT. ALLEY -- NIGHT]
(Dogon has his claw-like hand wrapped around a blonde-woman's neck, her back to
the brick wall. He squeezes and lifts her up off the ground, her feet
DOGON: You don't fool me. I have been waiting for you, Abet.
(The blonde-haired woman morphs into a demon.)
ABET: I'll see you in The Wasteland.
DOGON: But not for a while. Uhh!
(Dogon's hand glows purple and sucks Abet into himself - powers and all. Dogon
turns around and looks at Tomar.)
DOGON: Who's next?
BILLIE JENKINS: (o.s.) Try me.
(They turn around and find Billie standing there.)
DOGON: You're a persistent little witch, I'll give you that.
(Billie throws a potions bottle at Dogon who immediately deflects it. The vials
hit Tomar instead and he explodes in a puff of smoke and fire.)
DOGON: Overcome your fears, have you?
(He takes a step toward her.)
BILLIE JENKINS: What fears?
(Dogon throws a power ball at Billie who bends back completely avoiding it
easily. The powerball explodes behind her.)
(She immediately gets up and starts an offense on Dogon - throwing potion after
potion, hit after hit after hit after hit on him. He takes each hit in the
chest, backing away from the force of the explosion. )
DOGON: Ah! Oh!
DOGON: Uhh! Ah!
(Billie continues to advance on him until he explodes completely.)
(She sighs, tugs her jacket straight, turns and heads out of the dark alley.)
[INT. MAGIC SCHOOL - GREAT HALL - NIGHT]
(Dogon flames into the center of the Great Hall. He grunts with pain. A demon
steps forward to check on him.)
DEMON: Are you all right?
(Angry and humiliated, Dogon throws a fireball at the demon. The demon
DOGON: Oh ... I'm not. (He turns to the other demons.) Leave me!
(The other demons exit the hall.)
(Dogon gets to his feet.)
DOGON: I've got a score to settle.
[INT. MANOR - SITTING ROOM -- DAY]
(Phoebe walks out of the kitchen carrying a cup of something to drink. She
walks through the dining room and into the sitting room. The front door opens
and Paige pushes her way into the house amidst the reporters and camera
(She shuts the door closed behind her.)
PAIGE: Get! Get ... lost. Get a life or something.
(Paige heads over to Phoebe.)
PAIGE: Ohh! I thought I got rid of them. I can't believe it.
PHOEBE: Really? What made you think that?
(Paige sits down and throws the recent newspaper on the coffee table.)
PAIGE: Well, I thought I scared Seth off, but look at his headline. It's worse
PHOEBE: I told you he was a pit bull.
PAIGE: Well, you also said that he gets scared. Remember the whole mafia
story, Carol Flowers thing, you said he was haunted by it? So I figured if I
could haunt him in real life that --
PHOEBE: -- that you'd scare him off the case.
PAIGE: Yeah. Obviously, it didn't. Piper's gonna freak.
PHOEBE: Sometimes I just wonder if it wouldn't be better to just let the truth
PAIGE: You're not serious, are you?
PHOEBE: Yeah. I mean why not? It couldn't get any worse.
PAIGE: Well, yeah, actually it could. I mean, just think of how Dex reacted.
PHOEBE: Yeah. I am.
PAIGE: You spoke to him?
PHOEBE: Yeah. I don't know. It's just so complicated. You know, I find this
guy -- this great guy, and then the spell and the premonitions just mess
everything up, and I'm left to wonder how I really feel about him. It's just so
PAIGE: Well, how do you feel?
PHOEBE: Well, I like him ... a lot. But do I love him? Do I want to have his
baby and spend the rest of our lives together? I just -- I don't know. And how
can I know? Ehh, none of this makes sense.
PAIGE: Maybe you should retake that test.
(There's a bang. The front door opens and Leo rushes into the house. He looks
even worse than before and a bruise forming on his right cheek.)
PHOEBE: Leo! What happened?
LEO: Where's Piper?
PHOEBE: She's in the kitchen.
(Leo heads toward the kitchen. Phoebe grimaces as she sees Leo leave.)
PAIGE: You know what? (She sighs.) Maybe I should call in the big guns.
(Paige orbs out.)
[INT. MANOR - KITCHEN - DAY -- CONTINUOUS]
(Piper puts her knife down on the cutting board. She can't believe what she
PIPER: I'm sorry, what? You got in a fight? Where?
LEO: At Wyatt's preschool.
PIPER: What did you do?
LEO: Oh, what did I do? I didn't do anything, okay? I was protecting our son.
This whole thing got way out of control.
PIPER: Wait. Is Wyatt all right?
LEO: Of course he's all right. A photographer shoved his camera in his face.
PIPER: (chuckles) So, what? You went all Sean Penn on him?
LEO: What? Am I supposed to let it go?
PIPER: Yes! That's precisely what you should have done.
LEO: Oh, so you can turn them into rats, and I can't do anything.
PIPER: You know what? That's different.
LEO: Why because you have powers?
PIPER: Uh, yeah, partly, because I can reverse the damage that I've done. You
LEO: Gotcha. So because you have powers and I don't, I'm just supposed to let
it go, maybe let you figure it out for me, go get some more candy?
PIPER: What is wrong with you?
LEO: Never mind.
(Leo turns and leaves the kitchen. Piper chases after him.)
PIPER: Don't you walk away from me!
LEO: Watch me.
[EXT. GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE - TOWER -- DAY]
(Paige is on the San Francisco bridge tower.)
PAIGE: All right, I am not going anywhere. I'm just gonna stay here and keep
bugging you until somebody comes down here and ... talks to me.
(Jonas orbs in.)
JONAS (ELDER): Hello, Paige. How have you been?
PAIGE: How have I been? You don't know what's going on?
JONAS (ELDER): You didn't ask for our help before.
PAIGE: Oh! So we're being punished for that now?
JONAS (ELDER): No. Of course not. But we didn't get you into this mess. You
PAIGE: "This mess"? This mess happened because we almost died fighting for
the greater good. We actually made a split-second decision, and, hey, we chose
life. I know we've had we've had our differences in the past, but don't you
think we maybe deserve a bit of a break here?
JONAS (ELDER): Yes, I do, but getting out of this, turning the cameras away
from you won't be as easy as you think.
PAIGE: Okay, well, how about calling The Cleaners down here? They can erase
some memories, rewind time -
JONAS (ELDER): Not with this much time. Besides, you already burned that
PAIGE: Memory dust. Just sprinkle some.
JONAS (ELDER): Too many people involved. There's not enough.
PAIGE: Can you cast a spell or maybe magnify one of ours at least?
JONAS (ELDER): I'm afraid not.
PAIGE: Okay. Well, I am actually open to suggestions.
JONAS (ELDER): The answer to your problems are not magical, Paige. They're
PAIGE: Okay, I'm listening.
JONAS (ELDER): Everyone's after an amazing story, aren't they? An
extraordinary one? Just show them how ordinary you are. They'll go away.
[INT. MANOR - PIPER'S BEDROOM -- DAY]
(Leo goes berserk as he rants to Piper.)
LEO: "Leo, can you pick up the dry cleaning? Leo! Can you drop the kids off
at dad's? Leo! Can you fix the sink?! Leo, can you do this? Can you do
that?" You know, I feel like I'm a freaking handyman again.
PIPER: Well, I'm sorry, Leo, that I work for a living, okay?
LEO: Oh. Oh, okay. And because I do everything else around here, I don't.
PIPER: I don't ask you to do everything else.
LEO: No, no. You just expect it. You know, every time I walk through the
door, I never know what's next on your fricking list of things to do, never-
ending, by the way.
PIPER: Well, you know what? Welcome to marriage, Leo. It's a partnership.
You divide and conquer. What's your problem?
LEO: Only you do the dividing and the conquering.
(In the closer, Leo changes clothes.)
PIPER: Okay, look, I did not ask you to give up your powers, if this is what
that's all about.
LEO: No. But I did not give up my powers to be told what to do all the time,
you know? Damnit!
(Frustrated, he throws the shirt in the closet.)
[INT. MANOR - FOYER / MAIN HALL -- DAY]
(Downstairs, Paige opens the front doors and invites all the reporters, cameras
and other media people into the house.)
PAIGE: Okay, welcome. Welcome to our, uh ... lovely home. Please go on
through. Go on through. That's right.
(Seth steps into the house and looks at Paige.)
SETH PARRA: So what's the catch, huh? We all gonna get threatened this time?
PAIGE: Well, only if you steal Piper's candy. Ha ha ha. All right, after you.
That's right. Ooh, wait there for me.
(Paige slams the door shuts and heads to the front of the group to start to
PAIGE: The house was built in 1898. We're actually the third generation to own
it. Although not really headline worthy.
(Phoebe steps out of the kitchen and sees the group standing in the main hall.)
PHOEBE: Paige, what are you doing?
PAIGE: Ahh, Phoebe, lovely woman, fascinating life. But since she has a daily
column in the paper, there's really not much left to write about, is there?
Oop. Smile for the cameras.
(The cameraman snaps a couple of pictures. Phoebe looks even more stressed.)
PAIGE: (to the group) Ahh ... give us a second.
(They step aside in the dining room.)
PAIGE: What's going on?
PHOEBE: I retook the test. It looks like the first one was wrong.
PAIGE: Aw, honey I'm sorry.
SETH PARRA: Now, you talking about the case, are you? I mean, you don't care
to give us a quote?
PAIGE: No. We're actually discussing something private, but I promise, it's not
newsworthy. Shall we?
(She shows them to the stairs.)
SETH PARRA: (groans) Oh ...
(The group heads upstairs. Paige puts a supporting hand on Phoebe's shoulder,
then leaves to attend to the group.)
[INT. MANOR - PIPER'S BEDROOM -- DAY]
(Piper and Leo argue.)
PIPER: Hey, I did not ask you to be Mr. Mom. You volunteered.
LEO: Yes, but I did not think that it would become a fulltime job.
PIPER: Oh! And so that's my fault?
LEO: No, it is not your fault, okay? It just really sucks.
PIPER: Oh, it sucks? What would you like me to do about the fact that your
(The door opens. Paige and the group of reporters appear in the doorway.)
(Piper turns and looks at Paige.)
PAIGE: (to the group) 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: 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.
(Paige closes the door.)
[INT. MANOR - ATTIC - DAY -- CONTINUOUS]
(Paige walks into the attic with the group behind her. She points out various
items of fascination as she casually stands in front of the bookstand with the
Book of Shadows.)
PAIGE: Ahh, here we have my grandma's sewing machine that's broken, and there
we have piper's bicycle, flat tire ... um, a bunch of lamps -- Leo needs to fix
those -- and oh -- oh, yes. A hanging chair.
SETH PARRA: That's cute, Paige, but it's not gonna work. See, the government
wouldn't have faked your deaths unless they had a damn good reason, and none of
this changes that.
PAIGE: Maybe you should just think of all those great big stories you're
missing out on while you're wasting time on us. See, we're never gonna talk, so
this is all you're gonna get.
(He looks at her and nods. Paige shrugs at him. Seth turns to the group.)
SETH PARRA: Let's go. No story here.
(The entire group leaves the attic. Paige turns around and looks at the Book of
Shadows and sees that it's open to the page on the spell "To Erase Painful
PAIGE: Damn it.
(This is not good. Paige heads out of the attic.)
[INT. MANOR - UPSTAIRS HALLWAY - DAY - CONTINUOUS]
(Seth Parra and the reporters on their way out of the house walk past Piper and
Leo. Paige rushes down the attic stairs.)
PIPER: What did you say to them?
PAIGE: It doesn't matter because I'm pretty sure Billie is in trouble, again.
[INT. BILLIE'S DORM ROOM -- DAY]
(Dogon drops Billie on her table. She falls to the floor in a heep.)
BILLIE JENKINS: Aah!
(He looks down at Billie.)
DOGON: I've come too far, acquired too many powers to let a little witch like
you embarrass me. It won't happen again.
(Paige orbs in, then promptly orbs out.)
(Dogon turns around to look for Paige. With his back to her, Paige orbs in near
Billie and orbs them both out.)
(Having lost his chance to destroy Billie, Dogon screams with rage.)
[INT. MANOR - ATTIC -- DAY]
(Piper paces the floor. Paige it at the potions table boiling a new batch.
Phoebe tends to Billie's wounds.)
PIPER: We don't have much time. He's gonna track her here sooner or later.
PHOEBE: Hey, is the press still outside?
PIPER: I don't know. I'm afraid to look.
PAIGE: Did you use mandrake root or mustard seed?
BILLIE JENKINS: Mandrake root.
PHOEBE: Now, why didn't you tell us what you were doing? How come you hid it
BILLIE JENKINS: Because I thought I could handle it. I didn't want you guys to
give up on me.
PIPER: Now, why would you think that?
BILLIE JENKINS: Well, I overheard you and Piper talking yesterday about how you
didn't think I could handle all this, and I just didn't want it to be true.
PAIGE: Why did you think erasing bad memories could help you vanquish the
BILLIE JENKINS: I don't know. All I know is it didn't work.
PHOEBE: Magic can't erase fears. They're part of what makes us what we are,
and the only way to overcome them is to actually face them.
BILLIE JENKINS: I don't want face this one.
(Paige hands Piper the vial.)
PIPER: Face what?
(Billie looks at them.)
BILLIE JENKINS: The night my sister was taken. My mom was putting us both to
bed, and it was raining outside.
[INT. BEDROOM - NIGHT - FLASHBACK]
(Christy leans over Billie's bed.)
(She scares her.)
BILLIE JENKINS: Ohh! Christy, I'm telling mom!
CHRISTY: Big scaredy-cat.
(Christy smiles and heads back to her own bed. Billie holds her stuffed bear
closer to her. She's on the bottom bunk. Christy climbs up to the top bunk.)
(The balcony doors open. Billie gets up. She sees a dark-figure fly into the
room. Billie falls back against the pillows with fear. The light in the Jack-
(The creature with black eyes and silver claws bends over and looks at Billie.
He then jumps up.)
(Billie looks up and the demon's claws rip through the bottom bunk's mattress
and boards. Christy continues to scream.)
CHRISTY: No! No!
(The demon picks Christy up and flies out of the room with her screaming in his
END OF FLASHBACK
[INT. MANOR - ATTIC - PRESENT]
BILLIE JENKINS: That was the last time I ever saw her.
PHOEBE: So you have faced this demon before.
BILLIE JENKINS: No, I haven't. The Dogon is different. I know that now, but
he just reminded me of the one that took Christy.
PIPER: What did your parents do?
BILLIE JENKINS: Nothing. I was never allowed to talk about it. They just told
me an evil man kidnapped her.
PHOEBE: They didn't tell you it was a demon?
BILLIE JENKINS: They didn't know anything about demons. They just thought I
saw a monster under the bed or something like that. They thought I made the
whole thing up.
PAIGE: And now you know you didn't.
(Billie shakes her head. Dogon shimmers in next to Billie and wraps his claw-
like hands around her neck. Billie gasps.)
DOGON: Move and she dies.
(Billie reaches out and takes the potions bottle from Piper.)
BILLIE JENKINS: (whispers) Don't worry.
(The Dogon shimmers out with Billie.)
PAIGE: Okay, what now?
PHOEBE: We trust her.
[INT. MAGIC SCHOOL - GREAT HALL -- DAY]
(The Dogon shimmers into the Great Hall with Billie. He throws her on the
DOGON: I should've known you were working for The Charmed Ones. It explains
BILLIE JENKINS: Actually, it seems I've mistaken you for somebody else.
(Dogon holds out his hand, palm down, claw-like fingers extended.)
DOGON: Really? Who?
(Billie opens her mouth.)
BILLIE JENKINS: Ahh ...
(Dogon opens his mouth.)
(Billie throws the potions bottle directly into the Dogon. He swallows the
potion and explodes.)
(His mask falls to the floor.)
[EXT. SAN FRANCISCO CITY LIGHTS (STOCK) - NIGHT]
[EXT. DEX'S BUILDING (STOCK) - NIGHT]
[INT. DEX'S GALLERY/ LOFT -- NIGHT]
(There's a knock on the door. Dex opens it and finds Phoebe standing there.)
DEX LAWSON: Hey.
DEX LAWSON: Let me guess. You're a witch.
PHOEBE: Can we talk?
(He motions her inside.)
DEX LAWSON: Yeah, sure.
(She walks inside and he closes the door behind her.)
DEX LAWSON: It's not gonna work out, is it?
PHOEBE: (sighs) I don't know. I mean, we've just -- we've been through so
much, you know, so fast ... too fast.
DEX LAWSON: Maybe we need to take things slower. Of course, uh, considering
we've already been married and divorced, it's not gonna be easy.
PHOEBE: That's true.
DEX LAWSON: Regardless ... I don't like where things sit.
PHOEBE: No, I don't either. Uh ... I thought I was pregnant, and I didn't know
how to tell you.
DEX LAWSON: Are you?
PHOEBE: No, I'm not, but I thought I was, and it scared the hell out of me.
Not because I didn't want to be. I did, but I ... Eh ...
DEX LAWSON: It's too fast.
DEX LAWSON: What's the point of having premonitions if they don't even work
PHOEBE: They always work out. It's just sometimes they don't work out the way
you thought that they would.
DEX LAWSON: So where do we go from here?
PHOEBE: I guess ... we just take it slow, you know, and try to figure out how
we feel about each other without the magic.
[INT. MANOR - LIVING ROOM / FOYER -- NIGHT]
(The doorbell rings. Paige answers the door dressed up. Piper in a mouse
costume carries Chris dressed as a wizard.)
PIPER: Wow! Look at you guys. Are you a pirate? Wow, and a dinosaur, and a
very scary ghost.
PAIGE: Not as scary as mine was.
PAIGE: Okay, guys, take as much as you want. Oh, careful, careful, careful.
Easy now. Easy. Careful. Oops. Pass it back. There you guys go. Ok, have a
PIPER: It's a candy riot.
PAIGE: Bye. Be careful.
PIPER: I think we just got robbed.
PAIGE: I think so.
(Paige closes the door. Piper takes Chris into the sitting room and puts him
down in his play pen.)
PIPER: Oh, my goodness.
PAIGE: Hey, if you want to go trick-or-treating with Leo and Wyatt, I can watch
PIPER: Oh, no. That's okay. I think Leo and I need some space. Apparently,
we're having some issues.
(Paige puts the bowl of candies on the coffee table, sits down and puts her feet
PAIGE: I hope it's nothing serious.
(Piper sits down next to her.)
PIPER: No. You know, I don't think so. I think just with everything that's
been going on, we've taken each other for granted a little bit, and, you know,
we'll be fine.
PAIGE: I hope so.
PIPER: Yeah. Well, now that, you know, all the press is gone and things'll
calm down a little bit.
PAIGE: Yeah, except for the demons.
PIPER: Buzz kill.
PAIGE: What? They know we're back. It's only a matter of time.
PIPER: I know, but, you know, we've got Billie to pick up the slack. She can
PAIGE: Ya think?
PIPER: Yeah. What do you mean? She handled the Dogon okay, didn't she?
PAIGE: Yeah. I mean, just the whole thing about her discovering that her sister
was kidnapped by a demon. I don't know how soon she's gonna get over that one.
[INT. DORM ROOM -- NIGHT]
(On the bed side table is a framed photo of two kids -- Christy with her arm
around Billie. Billie looks at the photo, then turns away, thinking.)
(Camera pulls away.)
FADE TO BLACK.
