"I am the sun, I am the air..." Oh, stop it, I'm kidding! Kidding! Save your emails. Heh.
The opening travelogue is accompanied by the horrific screechings of an ovary. It may say something about her career in the past five years that it took me almost the whole song to realize that the singer is Jewel. Heh. And, ew. Someone I know once remarked that Jewel has the roundest face of anyone he's ever seen, and it's true. You could draw a perfect circle right around her face. Anyway, Prue and Phoebe stalk into a hospital in search of their injured sister. They meet Andy on the way in, and as they enter, Piper whines about all the blood. I'd be whining more about the horribly-dubbed line she just uttered, but whatever. There's some clunky exposition about Piper and Andy both having AB negative blood, and since said exposition comes complete with Andy's lipless smile, I think you'll understand when I say that this scene is not off to a rollicking start. Anyway, Piper doesn't need stitches, so Prue goes to settle the bill while Phoebe asks why Piper didn't freeze her assailant. Good question, Feebs. Piper whines that she was "trapped" in a phone booth, and her power doesn't work outside the room she's in. Leaving aside the point that it's debatable whether her powers wouldn't extend outside a phone booth, particularly after the window had been shattered, must I really point out that she voluntarily trapped herself in the phone booth? I mean, I get that she was terrified, but it wouldn't have taken much in the way of brains to freeze the thing first and figure out what to do afterward. Oy.
