The Lost Picture Show WB Trailer

  • This is Scott Jaeck third and final appearance as Sam Wilder. He previously appeared in "P3 H2O" and "Sam, I Am". This makes Paige's comment that he only shows up "every three years" true since he was in seasons 2, 5, and 8. He also appears in "Last Witch Effort", which takes 3 years after this episode.
  • This episode contains similaries to "Siren Song", as Piper and Leo are having marital problems and have something of theirs swapped (their powers in "Siren Song and now their bodies), which 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" and the second was "Freaky Phoebe". This is the only swap in which Phoebe is not involved.
  • This is the second time Piper and Leo visit a marriage counselor/therapist, in the series. The first time was in "Cat House".

Cultural ReferencesEdit

  • The title is a reference to the 1971 film "The Last Picture Show" featuring Cybill Shephard.

GlitchesEdit

  • The Segway Scooters that the police officers are riding were withdrawn from the market in 2003 by Segway, and they are in fact banned from use in San Francisco.
  • Cigarettes don't set off smoke detectors.
  • When Paige incorrectly refers to Piper as Phoebe during her talk with Leo about walking around on pins and needles for over a week.
