Now that Piper and Leo are married, Prue, Phoebe and Piper are faced with the possibility of being separated as the newlyweds plan to move out on their own, and the episode flashes back to an earlier time before the sisters knew they were the three most powerful witches the world has ever known.

Goofs: Just before Grams dies, she places the Book of Shadows in a trunk which is to the right of the attic door. In the series pilot Phoebe finds the trunk in front of the window.

  • In the flashbacks Grams is worried about the girls losing their connection as sisters if they become witches which is why she plans to use the potion on them the day she dies. But the girls time traveled back to before this event and she saw they were going to be fine.
  • 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."
  • The bottom of Piper and Phoebe on the picture was badly cut (so they could move closer to each other). Near the end of the magical photo transformation, Prue's right hand shifts into a slightly different position.
  • Phoebe refers to Kit as "him" whereas we learn in Cat House that he is in fact a she.
  • Just before Grams dies, she places the Book of Shadows in a trunk which is to the right of the attic door. In the series pilot Phoebe finds the trunk in front of the window. There are also white curtains on the windows in the attic in this episode, but in the Pilot, the windows are bare.
  • When Phoebe kicks Shadow in the shoe shop, it's obvious that it was a stuntman as his hair looks darker then the actual Shadow.
  • It's obvious that the "Grams" who falls down the stairs is a male stunt person.
  • Penny didn't light the last candle to summon Patty, but in the next shot, it's lit.
  • Kit the cat shows up in Something Wicca this Way Comes (Episode 1,1), as the girls' familiar once they have received their powers. It is obvious that the cat just showed up by comments made by the girls, along the lines of "where did this cat come from" (not literally). However, in Pre-Witched (Episode 3,17), they make the same kinds of comments about Kit just showing up in this episode, which is suppose to have happened 6 months before Episode 1,1.
  • At the beginning of the episode Piper and Leo are in the shower together - at the bottom of the screen you can see Piper has on a flesh colored towel.
  • When Piper is sitting with Leo on the tailgate of the SUV, when shown from the front her hair is in front of her shoulder and ear, but from the back we see it tucked behind her ear. This switches constantly throughout the scene.
