In Chinatown, on the day of his birthday, Mark Chao is killed by the chief of a gang, Tony Wong, without any apparent motive. His body is burned in an alley. The spirit of Mark contacts Piper and Phoebe asking for help because if he is not buried in a short time, Yama, the gatekeeper of the gates of hell would collect his soul. Piper attempts to help Mark and the two develop feelings. They discover that Wong hid documents on Mark's body to fool the police into thinking it was he who had died. Piper freezes Wong in place and photographs him with a newspaper announcing his own death to prove to the police that he is alive. Meanwhile, Piper and Phoebe are organizing a surprise party for Prue's birthday and Phoebe works as a psychic in the lobby of a hotel to earn money and buy a gift for Prue. When Phoebe foresees the death of one guest, she tries to save his life. Prue meets Andy having lunch with his ex-wife and she feels betrayed. Written by

For everything you've done for me. I just ask one favour, use them for your sisters surprise birthday party.
Prue doesn't want a party.
Birthdays are important. I know, I walked out of my last one and it never occurred to me that I wouldn't get another. She may not know it but she needs to celebrate her birthday, we all do. Don't take it for granted.
