Notes and TriviaEdit
- This episode scored 5.4 million viewers.
- Jenny doesn't appear in this episode.
- To help with her look as a man, Shannen Doherty supplied the make-up artist with a picture of her boyfriend at the time.
- Michael McLafferty also appears in Season 8 episode "Malice in Wonderland" as a police Training Instructor.
- This is the first time Phoebe channels her powers through someone else. She does something similar in "The Good, the Bad and the Cursed" and "The Eyes Have It".
- In this episode Prue uses her telekinesis to enhance her strength for the first time.
- This is the first time Phoebe uses the power of Clairvoyance.
- There is an alternate scene of when Prue and Phoebe enter "A Fine Romance" for the first time. Upon entering, Phoebe gets one of her dreams, seeing the succubus following men around in the building. Prue is looking down the register to see which woman joined, or as she says to Darla "to check out the competition".
- Another alternate scene: Piper, looking in the Book of Shadows, is reading an entry called "Irresistible", but gets distracted by seeing Dan. Dan enters the manor to catch Piper and the Book. Piper quickly tries to hide the Book but notices that Dan has seen the rather sexual drawings. This leads to a flirting conversation between the two.
- The story/script has no Phoebe sleeping in bed in the teaser, getting her weird, sexual dream, instead, we go from the sisters' conversation at P3 to Darla's apartment, where she kills a man. Her hand morphed into a claw. After killing the man, she walks over to a mirror were she reveals to us, her horrifying face and tongue. The ending is a bit different as well. Phoebe, instead of being at P3, goes to jail to let Owen out. She is wearing a to-die-for dress and kisses Owen the moment he steps out of his cell.
- The Succubus was supposed to be a monster like the Wendigo. She also lived in a cave, not an apartment.
- This is the second time that Prue cast a spell that didn't go the way she planned. The first time was in the season 1 episode "Which Prue is It, Anyway?"
- This is the first time Prue got transformed into something by her own spell.
- There are a few deleted scenes:
- Prue telekinetically breaks a mirror because Phoebe is making fun of her being a man.
- Both Inspector Smith and the medical examiner get killed by the Succubus
- When trying to attack Manny, Darla morphs into the Succubus and Piper freezes her. Phoebe kicks the Succubus after which Darryl shoots her.
- Manny and Owen are sitting in jail. Their cells opposite to each other, acting like machos. Darryl comes in to question them.
Behind the ScenesEdit
- Darla: Congratulations, Prue. Your days of having trouble with men are over. See you at tonight’s mixer?
- Prue: Okay, you know, for your information, I do not have man troubles. Financial ones, now, yes. But definitely not man troubles.
- (Phoebe comes in.)
- Phoebe: We’re out of here.
- Prue: She... you.
- Phoebe: Okay.. it’s okay... it’s all right.
- Prue: I don’t. Honestly. (to Phoebe) Tell her.
- Phoebe: Okay. Let’s work on your walk.
- Piper: All you have to do is visualize a man that you admire and then you emulate him. You know, the walk will follow.
- Prue: A man that I admire... all right... I got that.
- Piper: Okay.

- Dan: I’m sorry.. I.. I.. I just... I can’t do this.
- Jan: Oh, come on. Your sister paid for this, Mr. Gordon. You can do it.
- Dan: Oh.. this just isn’t me.
- Jan: Give it a try. Just speak from your heart. What are you looking for in a woman?
- Dan: What do I look for? I don’t know. I’m an old-fashioned, I guess. I look for the girl-next-door. Someone with a good heart, good personality, and looks to match. The kind of girl that... when I leave for work in the morning... I wait just... a little bit... till she leaves for work too. Just to catch a glimpse of that long dark hair, that great smile, hoping that maybe, one day... she’ll notice that I’m watching her. Then she’ll smile back at me.
- (Piper just smiles.)
- Phoebe: Um... did Manny just check out that girl's butt?
