Phoebe, unfortunately, says sure, and adds that Jenny's a great kid. (If she means greatly annoying, then that's accurate.) Dan and Phoebe then titter over Jenny's tampon problem. Dan asks what size he should get her. Phoebe tells him to try "Junior." Please god, don't let Jenny come over to ask, "Have you ever felt not-so-fresh?" in the next episode. The phone rings. Dan leaves. The Muted Sax of Potential Romantic Entanglement warbles.
Piper hanging up the phone. Rob's assistant called (at night?) and she didn't get the loan. Phoebe comforts her. Piper is now really glad that she didn't sleep with Rob, which continues to feed into Owen's "ho" thesis. Piper, to the writers more than anyone else: "What was I thinking?" Phoebe: "About Leo, maybe?" The sisters hug, and Phoebe suddenly thrusts Dan's bottle at Piper, saying "Wine!" Owen hopes the characters will start boozing it up this season like the folks on Bewitched used to.
Police station. We know this because a sign in front says "POLICE." And there's a police car with a siren parked in front. And two policemen on motorcycles go speeding by. Okay, we're convinced. Daryl "Please Give Me Something To Do" Morris and Prue in an interminable grief bonding scene, underscored by Delicate Emotion-Disclosing Piano Music. Blah blah Andy's death isn't Prue's fault blah blah Daryl doesn't know the sisters' secret blah blah. What's in the fridge? Are the clothes ready to come out of the dryer? How many days until Buffy again?
Halliwell Manor. Attic. Piper has drawn a triquatra on the wall in chalk. She thinks this could be made into a portal, or she's "screwed up this wall for no reason." Phoebe bitches that if Prue doesn't show up to help it won't matter. Prue struts into the room, saying, "She'll show." Prue apologizes for not being herself, and for needing to "work through" some "things," but she doesn't want to let them down. Prue's startling admission: "Right now, it's not about me, it's about us." Phoebe, in another 180: "That's a girl! I knew you'd come around!" Piper: "Excuse me?" Phoebe: "Well, I did -- deep down." Heh. Piper asks Prue if she's up for the demon. Prue gives the stink eye to a chair and moves it. Whoa. Not. Phoebe explains, for the benefit of the slower viewers, that they'll open the portal while Prue holds off the demon and the other sisters grab the BoS and find a spell to vanquish the Braxas. They walk up to the chalk triquatra and hold hands while touching the wall. The Braxas appears and wind blows around. Phoebe shouts for Prue to go to work. Prue looks frightened. The Braxas says, "First the book. Then you." Piper yells at Prue to use her power. The Braxas throws the girls across the room and the portal closes. Piper and Phoebe give Prue "What the?" looks, while the Piano Of Unresolved Fear And Grief resumes playing.
