Notes and Trivia
- Leo states that orbing burns a lot of calories.
- Cinderella was Phoebe's favorite story growing up; this would be explored later, when Phoebe actually becomes Cinderella.
- This episode takes place about a week after Charmed and Dangerous, since Paige says "last week" referring to helping Carolyn.
- Phoebe had a haircut between this episode and the last. Her hair is now shoulder length and her bangs are cut very short. From this episode on, Phoebe sports black/dark brown hair for the rest of the series, although she goes through a series of different hairstyles.
- This is the first time that Paige consciously orbs over a distance.
- It is revealed that the Source is blocking Phoebe's premonitions about Cole.
- The fact that Paige didn't orb Piper at first mirrors Piper's initial rejection of her at the beginning of the season.
- This episode scored 4.7 million viewers.
- This is one of four episodes with "Phoebe" in the title.
- The title of the episode is a reference to the movie "The Three Faces of Eve" (1957)
- In the book of shadows, the Belthazor pages are in a very different order. In "Look Who's Barking", the entry for "Cole's Human Side" is on the right and the info on Belthazor is on the left. Then there is a set of pages about Banshees and then a page to summon Belthazor.
- Older Phoebe: (holds up a sexy top to her body) Ah the good old days! Of course nobody's going to take you serious until you stop dressing like a tramp.
- Phoebe: I'm going to knock some sense into me!
- Cole: Who are you?
- Old Phoebe: Maybe this will refresh your memory. (she walks over and slaps him across the face) You bastard.
- Leo: (about to orb Little Phoebe to somewhere safe) Come on, take my hand. (She walks over to him) Now hold on tight.
- Little Phoebe: Are we going on a plane?
- Leo: No, but you might see some clouds.
- Paige: What about little Phoebe? She went back to her time with all this knowledge of the future. Won't that cause complications?
- Piper: I doubt it. The minute she starts talking about magic, Grams will do some hocus pocus to erase all that knowledge.
- Paige: That's nice.
- Piper: That's Grams.
- Paige: I did the rhyme, I will do the time.
