Ceremony over, the surviving Ps rise to form a receiving line with Big Daddy. Cole and the Dolt stand off to the side, the Dolt thanking the tedious Granolina for the service. Rose waits her turn in line, wearing that hideous jacket of hers. It's almost exactly the shade of her skin, and it features some kind of ruffled piping that trails up the front to wind around the collar over her left shoulder. Her hair is very, very flat. She approaches Phoebe, who, by way of contrast, looks fantastic. She still has the blonde highlights in her hair, which she wears in the same pulled-back, twists-on-the-side style she had in "Power Outage" and "All Halliwell's Eve." Oh, shut up. You know exactly what I mean. While Piper's chosen a chic little black dress for the service, Phoebe's characteristically in a floral patterned top. The pattern is in a subdued dark green, however, and the dark, ankle-length skirt she's chosen is modest to the point of being Edwardian. Anyway, pasty Rose walks up to Phoebe and gains points by offering a very simple "I'm so sorry for your loss." Phoebe thanks her softly, and Rose turns to walk away. Sensing something, oh, I don't know, unusual about Rose, Phoebe stops her with, "Weren't you engaged to Marilyn Manson? What the hell were you thinking? And what the hell was up with you flashing your ass at the MTV Video Awards that year? You looked like a total. Whore. I thought to myself, 'Thank God I'm not the poor schlub who has to steam-clean that theater seat when that skank's done with it.'" Okay, not so much. She asks, "How did you know Prue? From work?" Rose just smiles and shrugs a bit and says, "No. Just -- you know. From around." Phoebe asks if they've met before. Rose doesn't think so. She offers Phoebe her hand with, "Anyway. My condolences." Phoebe thanks her again and takes her hand, whereupon she is flung into one of those black-and-white visions of hers. This one features Rose, on a rooftop, with Fruma-Shax hurling a Flaming Ball of Death at her sharply-boned head. Breaking from the vision and the handshake, Phoebe falls backwards onto the carpet. Rose freaks and scampers off.
