Intermezzo Nursing Home. Prue brings water to PMGS. PMGS thanks her effusively (natch). Piper says that the nurse will be there shortly to make sure the old lady is okay. Leo rubs his hurt jaw and bitches, "I'll be fine, thanks for asking." Piper tells him he will get "no sympathy out of [her]." Prue asks PMGS if she can get anything else for her. PMGS requests some product-placement gelatin dessert that won't be named until they send MBTV their advertising fee. Prue's face says, "You know, old lady, I was only asking to be polite, what do you want -- the sun, the moon, and the stars if I have time?" while her voice replies that she'll "see what [she] can do." Prue ignores PMGS to join Piper and Leo for a processing summit. They voice their disbelief that Anton would use PMGS to set a trap for Phoebe. Word. Wouldn't Anton have shown up at Halliwell Manor a long time before the events in this episode? Anyway, Prue gets on task and reminds them that they need to get Phoebe back from the past. Piper worries about confronting Evil Phoebe, since she's probably protected by the amulet. Leo states the obvious -- that they need to get the amulet off of Evil Phoebe long enough for Pheebs and Evil Pheebs to switch lives. Then Phoebe will have to wear the amulet to protect her in the present from the past life curse. Prue gets as mired in the mechanics of this plot as I do and states the "bottom line -- find Evil Phoebe and get the amulet." Piper and Leo have no follow-up questions. They reason that since there are only five minutes left in this episode and Evil Phoebe only knows about the Halliwell Manor set, EP and Anton will be waiting at the house to try to trap and kill them. Leo and the hard Ps book home.
1920s Halliwell Manor. Upstairs hallway. The Pre-hard Ps stalk Pre-Phoebe. Phoebe runs downstairs, still muttering the spell mantra. She runs smack into Anton, and I do mean "smack" because the lip mics are set on eleven again. But this time she resists his sloppy kisses. Anton gets turned on by this and remarks that she's "too good too be true." Ah, irony. Phoebe thanks him for "reminding" her. She kick-boxes him in the face, exclaiming her best Miss Piggy "HIIIIII-YAAAAAHHH!!!" He falls back into the parlor and collapses on a pool table. The pre-hard Ps come up behind Pre-Phoebe and put the cord around her neck. Ruh roh!
