Cole finally accepts that he and Phoebe won't get back together, and creates a plan to let the sisters come after him and kill him. He wants them to be so blinded by hate that they'll vanquish him. He convinces Ronan, a Tracker, to help him, an offer which Ronan accepts in return for being allowed to kill Sam.

Special Musical Guest
Book of Shadows
- Related to the darklighters, trackers are harder to kill
- as they are unaffected by those means used to dispose
- of darklighters. With their distinctive markings, trackers
- pick off weak whitelighters to help thin the ranks of good.
- The tracker will never give up once it has a whitelighter
- in its sights. The only chance for the survival depends on
- vanquishing the tracker.
Tracker Vanquishing Potion
Phoebe made a Vanquishing Potion for Ronan. When Cole called him and he Black Orbed in, Piper tried to blow him up, but he was made Immune to it by Cole. Phoebe then said he wouldn't be Immune to the potion, and threw it, but he was Immune to it as well.
Cole Turner Vanquishing Potions
While shot by the Tracker, Paige came up with an idea to vanquish Cole: combining three potions. The sisters created three potions, as strong as the one they used on the Source. Before going up against Cole, they tested it on the letter opener with Cole's acidic blood on it, and the potions completely destroyed it. However, Cole still survived after the combination of the three potions.

Notes and Trivia
- The WB and on T.V. title for this episode is Daddy Dearest.
- Paige meets her biological father, Sam Wilder (Scott Jaeck), for the first time, he previously appeared in the season 2 episode "P3 H2O", and despite going into the afterlife with Patty there, it is revealed that he is made a Whitelighter again.
- The Avatars make their first appearance in the series in this episode.
- This episode marks the first time we see Wyatt's force field from within the womb.
- This episode states that Phoebe's favourite band is The Flaming Lips.
- Cole uses telekinesis similarly to Prue when flinging, except his sound effect didn't have as high pitch sound as hers, but you hear the flying effect when flinging.
- In this episode Cole goes evil again in an attempt to get the sisters to vanquish him. Even though it doesn't work, he remains evil until he is vanquished by Phoebe in "Centennial Charmed".
- The song that was playing when Paige and Sam were talking is the same song used near the end of "P3 H2O" after he drowns. It will play again at the end of the series finale.
- The title of the episode is a reference to words on a wooden sign in the Dr. Seuss book Green Eggs and Ham (1960).
- Piper says "You knew about this supernatural Jenny Jones reunion, didn't you?". This is a reference to Jenny Jones's talk show The Jenny Jones Show.
- In P3, when Piper and Phoebe are talking about nannies and the camera is on Piper, the people in the background disappear only to reappear in the next shot.
- Paige's lipstick changed colour from a bright red from the beginning of the episode to a darker red right in the middle of the scene where the Darklighter attacks.
- Paige said that potions she created to kill Cole were more powerful than the one they used on the Source. However, the sisters never used any potions against the Source (this will be repeated in Oh My Goddess! Part 1).
