Sam comes to Paige for her help. One of his charges disappeared 50 years ago and now he's back, but he hasn't aged one day. With Agent Murphy's help, they try to figure out who's behind this, while Piper and Leo are dealing with their own problems: they switched bodies, thanks to a Soothsayer. Meanwhile, Phoebe comes up with a new idea to get the daughter she foresaw.

Notes and TriviaEdit
- The title is a reference to the 1971 film "The Last Picture Show" featuring Cybill Shephard.
- This is Scott Jaeck's third and final appearance as Sam Wilder on the show. He previously appeared in season 2 ("P3 H2O") and season 5 ("Sam, I Am"), making Paige's comment that he only shows up "every three years" true since he was in seasons 2, 5, and 8 (though she couldn't know that since she didn't see him in season 2). Also, Sam makes an appearance in issue 11 in Charmed comics Last Witch Effort, which takes 3 years after this episode.
- Leo and Piper switch their body for the first time, but they've switched their powers twice before in "Love Hurts" and "Siren Song". Additionally, this episode is similar to "Siren Song" in that it involves Piper and Leo having marital problems and having something of theirs swapped (in this case, their bodies) that leads to them seeing the other's perspective.
- This is the third and final episode in the series to include a storyline about body swapping. The first was "Enter the Demon" (Phoebe and Paige) and the second was "Freaky Phoebe" (Phoebe and Imara).
- The trailer for this episode does not mention Vaklav or even Sam, just Piper and Leo switching bodies.
- This is the second time Piper and Leo visit a marriage counselor/therapist, in the series. The first time was in "Cat House".
- The Segway Scooters that the police officers are riding were withdrawn from the market in 2003 by Segway, and they are in fact banned from use in San Francisco.
- This episode takes place on November 6th, 2005.
- Cigarettes don't set off smoke detectors.
- San Francisco has banned Segway scooters from their sidewalks 5 years ago.
- When Paige is talking to Leo about him and 'Phoebe' walking around on pins and needles for over a week - she should have said Piper instead.
- This episode takes place on November 06, 2005, but this is impossible because in Death Becomes Them (the second to last episode of Season 7), they are getting ready to celebrate Chris's first birthday, which would be on November 16, 2005.
