Phoebe cautiously approaches Piper, who's been flipping through the BoS in search of other demons during the exchange. Phoebe tells her they already have a "system" in place for fighting demons. Piper hoists up Prue's death as "a pretty big glitch in the system," and bitches Phoebe out for not getting her back on her new system of "getting a little proactive." Phoebe allows that they have a right to be angry at Prue's death, but insists they should not allow that anger to blind their better judgment. "We're not ready to get a little proactive," she asserts. "Just dealing with our normal, everyday lives is hard enough." Piper counters that getting back to said "normal, everyday lives" is her ultimate goal. Seek out and destroy every demon in the Book, goes the plan. Then they won't have to worry about things like destiny and the Elders and the Power of Three ever again. Thus, the central conflict for the evening's episode is established. Rose enters in an alarmingly short denim skirt, for it was she and her skirt who rang the bell moments ago. Piper gets this look on her face like someone neglected to flush the toilet, but remains silent. Rose apologizes for stopping by unannounced. Phoebe tells her not to worry about it, and invites Rose into the inner sanctum. Rose is having a problem keeping her newfound abilities to herself. Phoebe sympathizes, noting that the whole sisterhood thing is useful when outside friendships become strained due to such secrets. Piper has crossed to a mounted map of the city, which she picks up along with her trusty scrying crystal. "It's a little chatty up here," she snots. "I'm going to go scry for [Eeevil] in my room." "Scry?" Rose wonders as Piper passes by with barely a glance in her direction. "Phoebe'll explain," Piper tosses over her shoulder as she exits. Rose turns back to Phoebe, all "What crawled up her ass and exploded?" Get used to it, Rose. Piper's always that way.
