How do they afford more than one outfit every episode if they don't have much money?
I mean, they're always complaining about not having any money.

The same way they could afford fixing that damn grandfather clock. I don't know. Seems to be a trend with girls or women who lick demonic ass for a living and kick demonic ass on the side. Just ask her.

I can't find a thread about the music, but I have the theme song running around in my head. Does anyone know if the band Tatu ever did a version of the "I am the son, I am the heir..." song? I have it on their CD and I can't figure out if it is the same song or not. A lot of the lyrics are the same, but there are a lot of changes.

I think T.A.T.U. did their own version of the song and also one using the original lyrics.

Edited because I said Love Spit Love's version and, well, I have no clue who did the original version. So I just said the original version. God, I need some Tylenol.

Love Spit Love's lyrics of 'How Soon is Now'? I have both the orignial Smiths! version, and the Love Spit Love version and the lyrics haven't changed. Or are you talking about another LSL song?

In answer to your question, yes T.A.T.U. did cover 'How Soon is Now?'. Although, for a group that espouses their lesbian love for one another, a song about how they can't find love or a relationship wasn't a very good choice, non?

ETA: Oh, T.A.T.U. changed the lyrics of the song and not Love Spit Love. it wouldn't surprise me. They've destroyed everything else, why not the genius of Morrissey?

I dunno who did the original version, I just have a CD with Love Spit Love performing "How Soon Is Now" on it... I didn't know someone else did it first. Whatever. It's late. I have a headache.

Speaking of covers of "How Soon is Now?"...

Have any of your heard Snake River Conspiracy's version? I have to admit that I actually like it better than any of the other versions.

How do they afford more than one outfit every episode if they don't have much money?

For me this is a combination of two threads I guess. Since I'm pretty obsessed with this show I've watched the episodes too many times and I've noticed there are certain articles of clothing that the girls have worn more than once. Mainly coats, but for example I noticed Holly wore the same jeans in A witches tail 1 and Sam I am. I think I've seen Rose wear the same pair of pants twice. How dare they wear something more than once!!

So basically I don't know where they get their money. How about when Prue died? Piper was the only one making any money to support Phoebe, herself, Leo and the grandfather clock. Seems like she is the only one who's always had to work.

Please. I'm still trying to swallow the bullshit that Phoebe is capable of writing a newspaper column, let alone parlaying that into a successful syndicated column.

Oh, that's right. She took her clothes off to accomplish that.

Piper and Phoebe are co-owners of P3, and Phoebe also writes for the newspaper. Paige's money sources are more speculative. She has those piddly temp jobs of course. Whether or not she has an inheritance from her parents is up for debate, but I would assume that she does, since her lifestyle in the beginning of Season 4 was not compatible with someone surviving on only on assistant social worker salary.

I don't think Paige was any too well off. Remember, in Brain Drain she was carrying on about splitting the cost of all breakage after Piper blew up her chair and then in Black as Cole they were bickering about who would pay for the fake baby she pushed on Piper. Of course, later in the season she seemed to overcome all this by simply saying a spell.

If Paige's parents were smart, they would have had a nice ole insurance policy for their only daughter.

Technically, Paige should have had money coming in until she was 18 (in some cases, 21). Since her dad was a firefighter, she would have been eligible for benefits under the "widows & orphans" plan firefighters and police (among other occupations) provide. Insurance is usually a given (separate from what the civil servants option into as part of the job), but since Paige went to Berkley and had a loft apartment in an expensive city like SF, and the money can go pretty fast. Not to mention the Jimmy Choo shoes.

OMG. I'm analyzing the insurance benefits for fictional characters....kill me!

Heh. In one minute, you've done more background development on her character than the Charmed writers did.

Does anyone know why, in Wicca Envy, Leo was able to use telekinesis? He used it in the attic to open & shut some trunks and then at the end, to open the front door while he was orbing out (which makes no sense, as there's no need to bother with the door).

Maybe I'm just blanking out, but I don't recall him doing this before.

TK is one of those Whitelighter powers that were shown once or twice, and then dropped. He and Grams used TK (in some debatable form) to open the BOS and flip the pages a few times, usually they were invisible while doing so. In Morality Bites, you actually see Leo doing it. His hands were glowing as if he were healing the book.

Yeah, I think he does that in P3H2O with the Book as well, when he's staying at home with Piper. I don't think the powers we saw him use in Secrets and Guys were ever really used again either. You know, when he holds the lightbulb and it glows... and, oh yeah, he fills up Phoebe's glass of water by holding his hand above it as well. After a while he just orbed, healed wounds, knitted clothes together and occasionally sensed his charges. It's a pity, because I used to really like all those powers from the first season.

Hee! Thanks, Loco Lady & bradlepe. Leo was such a mystery circa season one...kinda cool.

Leo's levitation power tends to get ignored as well. Usually he just stands there and gawps until some demon smacks him down or a darklighter nails him with an arrow, when in theory he should be able to 'jump' out of the way - or just orb, for chrissakes!

While it's getting into a dangerously Trekkian 'discussion of the transporter' territory (or just plain 'Continuity takes it over the head with a baseball bat one more time'), at what point while orbing do people leave the real world and enter "the neutral plane", as Leo called it in 'Centennial Charmed'?

Most of the time, orbing allows people to escape harm almost instantly (numerous examples, but 'Sand Francisco Dreaming' and 'Oh My Goddess II' spring to mind because I've seen them recently) even as FBODs and the like fly right through the orb effect, but other times they can be intercepted mid-orb and even harmed ('Centennial Charmed' when Cole nails Paige as she tries to escape from his apartment, mole-nose Chris blowing up Leo in 'OMGII', the brothers watching and tracking Paige as she orbs out in 'Saving Private Leo' - and to judge from Living's trailers, 'Valhalley II' is going to see somebody not only grabbed mid-orb, but then physically smashed into a wall!).

I'm think about this a lot more than the crack monkeys, aren't I?

All of Leo's powers (other than orbing and healing) are nothing more than plot devices, pulled out of their asses when they've written themselves into a corner.

Which, just furthers the point that Leo? He's just a tool.

" 'Secrets And Guys', now airing, just added instant tea-heating - ie, molecular manipulation - to his toolbox, BTW. Although maybe that could be all his healing power is - a very, very specialised form of molecular manipulation. (Which would explain how he can 'heal' pipes and neon signs.)

I'm still waiting for him to become Piper's personal tool once again...oops. Did I really write that? Sorry for the mental image everyone. Thanks, I thought I was going crazy for thinking he has been looking damn fine lately. To follow up, I came cross this picture and I thought I should share it with all who either hate or love the dolt.
