Piper: Miles is not her type, and she would see that if she wasn't on the rebound.
Leo: Yeah, I don't think so. I think he's a nice guy
Piper: He just got divorced
Leo: So did she
Piper: He's wearing cologne
Leo: Oh, and that's a bad thing
Piper: And he's a computer programmer? He works with numbers all day, You know how Phoebe is with math, They have absolutely nothing in common
Leo: You're right... We, we should just vanquish him.

Miles: You saved my life!
Phoebe: Oh, it was nothin'.
Miles: It was my life!
Phoebe: Yeah
Miles: I should be dead right now
Phoebe: Yeah, but you're not. That's good
Miles: You saved my life!
Phoebe: I think we've been over that part

Bacarra (to Cole): You're the future of evil, man.

Phoebe: Okay, something really freaky happened last night when I was with Miles.
Piper: You guys are already getting freaky?

Phoebe: How long have you guys been standing there?
Paige: Long enough to know you've got some serious 80's dance moves!


There is a scene where Piper and Phoebe are running, you can clearly see that Phoebe is running in what looks like brown Ugg boots or slippers then when she reaches Miles you can see she is now in Black boots.
When we see Piper talking to her past self her past self hair changes from straight to curly between shots.
When Bacarra wants to disempower the witches he needs a human heart as previously seen when Tuatha did the same thing, however when Tuatha did the spell she needed three human hearts for the spell to disempower all of them so surely Bacarra should of needed three and not just the one.

Baccara is a warlock he arrives in the future after Phoebe saves her boyfriend Miles from death, he was supposed to die and because Phoebe saved him it caused a time ripple and Bacarra was able to get through from six months in the future. He goes to find Cole and claims that he works for Cole in the future where he rules the underwold again. Bacarra tells Cole that he had sent him back in time to save Phoebe who is going to die because she keeps saving Miles from the Angel of Death. However Cole doesn't believe him and Bacarra decides he will kill Miles himself so Phoebe does not die. Bacarra comes up against the Charmed Ones but he manages to escape from them, it was then he realised he could claim all th power for himself instead of answering to others. He goes to find his past self as he is from the future. In the past Bacarra is a low level warlock who was trying to gain the power of invisibility from a witch now future Bacarra convinces him to work together so they can claim the powers for themselves. Future Bacarra stabs Piper with an Athame so he can collect some of her blood then the present Bacarra uses the blood in a potion so that they can control the Book of Shadows. They try to the Disempower a witch spell from the book which they needed a human heart for, they get the heart from the witch with the invisibility power and use it to strip the powers of the sisters. Both present and future Bacarra summon a fireball which they use to kill Phoebe and Paige. Leo saves Piper from the Bacarras and they orb to the alley that Miles was supposed to die in the hope they can find the time ripple that caused future Bacarra to appear. Bacarra tells present Bacarra that he is returning to the future and he should call the leaders of the underworld so that he can take his position there. Piper enters the time ripple and alters the timeline to when Miles is supposed to die therefore erasing the timeline where he killed Phoebe and Paige. Future Bacarra is therefore not in existence anymore and the present Bacarra is back to who he was... a low level demon hunting a witch.
