Melinda Warren: Why? Why did you betray me?
Matthew Tate: You got what you deserve.
Melinda Warren: So, you never loved me? All the passion? All the heat?
Matthew Tate: I had to make you trust me. It was the only way to share your powers
Melinda Warren: And so now you have them. So why would you turn me in? You know I'll burn.
Matthew Tate: I had to keep my secret.
Phoebe Halliwell: You've never asked a guy out before?
Piper Halliwell: Not on a real date, no.
Phoebe Halliwell: I don't understand. Am I the only person in this family who's inherited the take a chance gene?
Piper Halliwell: Probably, 'cause if I remember my biology correctly, it's attached to the "Can't Mind My Own Business" gene.
Phoebe Halliwell: Oh. Go.
Phoebe Halliwell: Melinda Warren, blood of our blood.
Prue Halliwell: Our great-great-great-great-great-great-grandmother.
Phoebe Halliwell: We summon thee.
[Melinda Warren apppears]
Melinda Warren: Oh, Blessed Be.
Prue Halliwell: Great, so I'm being hunted by a warlock and the San Francisco P.D.
Arnold Halliwell: [as Matthew, a 17th century warlock is strangling him telekinetically] I'll... sue... you!
Matthew Tate: [kills him] Lawyers... have *not* changed.
Hannah Webster: You may have proven the legend of the locket true and that the little witch is Charmed, but now we have a 17th century warlock running around. I think he'll stick out.
Rex Buckland: Yep. But then again, if the legend does hold true, Matthew's got a one-track mind. Just like we do. He won't be difficult to find. Stop worrying, Hannah. Gonna get wrinkles on your horns.
Prue Halliwell: Oh, yeah. You want to have that conversation with him? Hey, Andy, I hate to bother you, but this 17th century warlock is trying to kill me and my sisters. Any thoughts?
Melinda Warren: No! Don't - don't rip the dress to make it fit me.
Phoebe Halliwell: No, I'm not ripping it. It's called a zipper. See?
Melinda Warren: Okay. A wise witch made this.
Phoebe Halliwell: Yeah, and wise witches in this century keep a low profile. You slip this dress on, you'll blend right in.
Melinda Warren: It's so odd to be here again to breathe and feel. What sheep has wool so soft?
Phoebe Halliwell: A synthetic one.
Melinda Warren: Once Matthew had what he wanted, he told the town council I was a witch and they arrested me. Then they burned me at the stake.
Piper Halliwell: Why didn't you save yourself?
Phoebe Halliwell: Yeah. Why didn't you use your powers to escape?
Melinda Warren: I had a daughter. Her name was Prudence. She meant everything to me. If I'd used my powers, I would've proven Matthew's charge, and Prudence would've burned, too. So I thought I'll accept this and pray some kind soul will take pity on my daughter and raise her in a safe home. Only then can the Warren line continue. And it must've worked, because here you are.
Matthew Tate: Who are you? How do you know me?
Rex Buckland: The short answer is, we're the ones that gave the witch the locket that had you freed. I suppose you could say that we're partners.
Matthew Tate: I work alone.
Matthew Tate: Not in this century you don't. You're new in town. New in time. You need our help I see you've been shopping. Find what you're looking for?
Rex Buckland: I want Melinda Warren's children.
Hannah Webster: Talk about your coincidences.
Rex Buckland: You see, we have the means to find them for you, and you have the ability to take their powers.
Prue Halliwell: Grams must've added this one.
Melinda Warren: To increase patience.
Phoebe Halliwell: I bet she used that spell a lot raising us?
Prue Halliwell: We weren't all troublemakers, Phoebe.
Phoebe Halliwell: I was not a troublemaker. I was just...
Piper Halliwell: A pain.
Phoebe Halliwell: A free spirit.
Prue Halliwell: A handful.
Melinda Warren: A Warren. It's a family trait. So are the short tempers, the great cheekbones, the strong wills, and, of course, the powers. All blessings, all signs of where you came from. This book is your connection, and it began with me.
Piper Halliwell: Uh, Leo?
Leo Wyatt: Yeah?
Piper Halliwell: Would you like to go out sometime? With me, that is?
Leo Wyatt: I'd love to. Give me a call.
Piper Halliwell: [Smiles] Okay!
Melinda Warren: But I have to go.
Phoebe Halliwell: Why? Why can't you stay here and have the life that you should have had?
Melinda Warren: Because this isn't my time. It's your time. And Prue's and Piper's.
Piper Halliwell: We don't mind sharing.
Melinda Warren: You three give me great joy. I've seen The Charmed Ones. Good witches. Women of strength and grace.
Phoebe Halliwell: Tell me what you see.
Melinda Warren: I see the future. Many more generations of my beautiful daughters. I see my dreams fulfilled. Oh, thank you for that.
Piper: But aren't we, like, raising the dead? What if she's all...
Phoebe: I read The Book of Shadows very carefully. She will come back as a real live person, flesh and blood. She will have her powers too. Our powers.
[picks up a knife]
Piper: What's that for?
Phoebe: Well, the spell works by blood calling blood, so it shouldn't hurt... much.
[Phoebe cuts her finger with the knife]
Phoebe: I lied, I lied. Okay, come on guys. It'll be just like the summer by the lake. Remember when we made a oath blood to be friends forever, not just sisters?
Piper: I remember my finger got infected
Prue: [Prue takes the knife off of Phoebe and stabs her finger] Ow. Yeah, but the oath worked.
[Prue hands the knife to piper]
Piper: And I couldn't go in the water for three weeks. Don't hand me that knife.
Prue: How are you gonna cut yourself?
Piper: I'm not.
Piper: I can't stand the sight of blood.
Prue: Evil beings have blown up in our attic...
Phoebe: Disintegrated to dust right before our very eyes...
Prue: And you're afraid of a little drop of blood?
Piper: Fine, just cut my finger.
[holds out her hand to Phoebe]
Piper: [Piper covers her eyes and Phoebe stabs the knife in her finger] Ow!
Phoebe: It'll be just like the summer by the lake. Remember when we made that blood oath to be friends forever, not just sisters?
Piper: I remember my finger got infected.
