Victor: If my girls are raised around this it'll destroy their lives.
Grams: Oh, don't be overdramatic.
Victor: A demon tries to kill my daughter and I'm being overdramatic?

Phoebe: Paige, orb the potion.
Paige: It's in a puddle.
Piper: You can do it, Prue did.
Barbas: Ay, there's the rub. You're no Prue, are you?

Leo: As your whitelighter, I would say go with your instincts.
Paige: Okay.
Leo: But as your brother-in-law, going up against your sisters is pure suicide.
Paige: Great. You really helped clarify this issue.

Paige: What is wrong with you? Is this Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Piper? Make up your mind, lady.

Barbas: Come on. Finish it. Please. You can do it. I know you can. Come on, kill me.

Miles: Phoebe.
Phoebe: Yeah?
Miles: I had to talk to you. I had to tell you the truth.
Phoebe: This isn't real. This isn't happening.
Miles: I'm evil Phoebe. You know that's why you're drawn to me.
Phoebe: Ok, people, time to get over our fears right now!
Piper: Easy for you to say. You're not facing killer spiders!
Phoebe:Neither are you.

Phoebe: We're trapped.
Paige: Like hell we are... Uh. Ok. On second thought…

Barbas: I know your fears.
Phoebe: Really? You sure about that?
Phoebe: What's the matter? Lost your touch? And you want this guy to be your new leader? Tsh.
