Double Dose Of Dumb-Assed Detectives. The Dim Duo pull up in front of the Manor, and see two men across the street throwing garbage cans at each other. Darryl goes to check it out while Andy ascends the Manor steps. Phoebe opens the door and kittens that she thinks there might be a gas leak, and she's home alone, so...clearly Andy's seen a porn flick or two in his life, as he gets a little tongue-tied, but agrees. Phoebe purrs that it's down in the basement, and the door shuts of its own accord.
Darryl's getting the story, which is that one of the dudes came out of the Manor and started throwing things. Prue and Piper have arrived on the scene, and Darryl informs them that he's come because Professor Manners was there the night before, so he and Andy want to ask the Ps some questions. Seriously, are there no other cases in San Francisco? Maybe the Dimwitted Duo's supervisor knows how useless they are, so he just sends them flitting off to the Manor every time a real case comes in. Anyway, Prue and Piper start up the steps, but take cover when the door opens. Piper waits until Andy's in the doorway, reasoning that since the house is letting him out, its guard is down. That sounds like a crock of shit to me, but at least she's trying. Once inside, they see that Phoebe is frozen too, which freaks Prue out, since it means she's no longer good. It's a little convenient, then, that they get her back so easily at the end of the episode, but I can see daylight in the distance, so it's time to speed ahead. Prue and Piper run upstairs to abuse the Book of Shadows just ahead of Phoebe unfreezing and closing the door behind Andy.
Darryl's having to physically restrain the Bickersons when Andy appears and draws a gun on them, looking for all the world like he's going to fire. Darryl's reflexes are equal to the task, however, as he throws Andy to the ground and disarms him. Darryl asks what the hell that was, and Andy admits he has no idea. I'm going to go sit with the shocked people. I need a lot of leg room.
Upstairs, the elder Ps are getting desperate. Prue tries to reconstruct the events surrounding the weird occurrences, but it's Piper who realizes that the Woogy must indeed be real, and responsible for what's been going on. Score one for the middle sister. We learn, though, that there was an earthquake the night Phoebe told them the story, so they've been pretty hopelessly slow on the uptake, here. Prue realizes that the spell to vanquish the Woogy is contained in Grams's story, but unfortunately, they don't remember it. For some reason Piper opens the attic door, and Phoebe's standing there. She very matter-of-factly tosses Piper out the door, which is an amusing contrast to Piper's hysterical shrieking. Phoebe locks the door, and conjures a knife that would be perfectly appropriate for cutting up a small woolly mammoth. Prue tries to tell Phoebe that she's stronger than the Woogy, but Phoebe demurs. "That's why he chose me." As Piper continues to bang on the door, Phoebe intones in her Woogy voice, "But now I'm much stronger than you." She starts to swing, but Prue TKs her across the room. A telekinetic battle here would be pretty cool, and might have saved us a bunch of crappy filler scenes, but they don't go that route, as Phoebe's knocked unconscious, and Prue TKs the door open. She and Piper run down the stairs, and Piper heads for the front door. Prue's all, where are you going, and Piper's all, where do you think, bitch? The house, however, agrees with Prue, as the force field kicks in and sends Piper sliding back across the floor. Piper bitches and moans us into the last commercial break.
