The show's writers apparently forgot the gender of Kit the cat. Previously, Kit was female, but now Phoebe says, "You know, I don't think I'm ever gonna be able to look at Kit quite in the same way. Or get undressed in front of him, for that matter." See more »


Piper Halliwell: You know, just because I'm moving out doesn't mean we still can't do this.
Phoebe: What? Mainline caffeine while waxing on warlock issues?
Piper Halliwell: No, hangout. You know, I don't wanna be one of those old married leapers that nobody thinks is fun anymore.
Prue Halliwell: You've never been fun Piper.
Piper Halliwell: I've always been fun Prue. I am just Mrs. Fun now.

Charmed's finest episode...
6 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Pre-Witched is to me the best episode of the series, simply because it is flawless. It might not be a very important episode as far as plot development in the overall season-long arc, but it wonderfully executes the present demon storyline with the Charmed Ones' lives before they received their powers. It demonstrates their grandmother's obsession with controlling her granddaughters' destiny and it shows how distant the sisters used to be. The episode has brilliant editing, as well as great performances from the three leads, who have to give themselves up to what they used to be. This might be a very simple episode, but as far as the show goes, it is emotionally charged and I wish they would have done more with their past in the future episodes. Charmed's finest.
