[Scene: A museum. A tour guide is there talking to a bunch of people.] Tour Guide: Legends hold it buried somewhere near a rocky desert, is a fable book, penned by ancient mystics, known as the Akashic Records. Believed to be a written account of all significant events throughout time. Powerful stuff. If someone were to get their hands on that, they could win the lottery or at least get tender. To know the future brings, obviously, ultimate power. Which is why everyone from Hera to Hitler has been looking for the records. But to find them, to find them, one needs a map. This tablet found in the Ivory Colls last year, is believed to be the very map. Although the engravings are of a lost language so far and undecipherable, even for scholars like myself but we're close. Whoever can decipher them first will know the exact latitude and longitude of the Akashic Records.
(You see a guy standing in front of it, writing something down on a notepad.) Guy: Oh my God, that's it. Tour Guide: Uh, excuse me? Guy: Uh, no, no. Excuse me.
(He leaves.) Tour Guide: If you follow me this way, I'll show you the next exhibit which is quite interesting.
[Scene: Bay Ridge Convalescent Hospital. The guy that was at the museum is there talking to his father.] Guy: I cracked it, dad. The rest of the map. It was a transposition sequence just like you said and it's all in here. (He points to his head.) The location of the Akashic Records. Now, they're gonna come after me, just like they came after you, and I'm gonna be ready for them, dad.
(Phoebe enters holding a vase of flowers.) Phoebe: Hey. Guy: Hey.
(She puts the flowers on a table.) Phoebe: How's he doing today? Guy: The same. Thanks for always keeping his room so cheerful, Phoebe. I really appreciate it. Phoebe: Oh, don't mention it. I mean, for all we know he knows they're here too, right? Isn't that why you keep talking to him?
(A doctor enters.) Doctor: Eric, can I speak to you alone please? Phoebe: Oh, uh, yeah. (She goes outside.) Eric: I'm not moving him, Dr. Stone. Dr. Stone: Eric, it's been six weeks. This faculty is not designed for long term maintenance. Eric: Maintenance? This is my father we're talking about and he's gonna get better and he's gonna stay here.
[Cut to the hallway. Eric bumps into Phoebe.] Eric: Sorry. (Phoebe has a premonition.) Phoebe: Eric, wait.
[Scene: Manor. Piper's bedroom. She's putting clothes in a bag. Prue runs in.] Prue: Ooh, ooh, ooh! I think Jack's a warlock. Piper: Who? Prue: Jack, uh, Jack Sheridan. The internet auction guy I met remember. I went to go get coffee, he was standing in front of me and then I went straight to the news stand and 'wham!' he was right there reading a magazine. Piper: So he went from one place to another in a blink of an eye. So, you think he blinked? Prue: Well, yeah, that's what warlocks do, right? Where's Phoebe? Piper: She's volunteering at the convalescent hospital. Prue: Great. Wait, you have to know if there's a warlock test. Piper: How would I know? Prue: I mean, well, you are a warlock magnet. Piper: Am I never gonna live Jeremy down? You know, you had that Rex and Hannah thing at work. Prue: Okay, fine. You get them in your love life, I've got them at the water cooler. What's up with the suitcase? Piper: A little overnighter. Dan's friend is getting married in Tahowan. Dan invited me to come along. Prue: In the same hotel, in the same bed type of thing? Piper: That is yet to be decided. Prue: Oh, so then this is just ... Tennis?
(She gets lingerie out of Piper's bag.) Piper: Give it. (Prue gives it back.) Thank you. Prue: I mean, you did test him though, right? You know, he's not a warlock? Piper: He's not a warlock. No cats have hissed at him, he has not blinked, he has not tried to kill me or my sisters and steal our powers as which you know is a key indicator. Prue: I need the Book Of Shadows.
(She grabs Piper's lingerie and runs out of her room giggling.) Piper: Aahh. (The doorbell rings.) Oh, I'll get it.
[Cut to downstairs. Piper opens the door.] Piper: Hello, you. Dan: Hi, um, I was wondering if maybe we could get an early start. You know, miss traffic, get there quicker so we have enough time to ... Piper: Relax? Dan: Relax is a good word. (They laugh.) Any chance you could be ready in an hour? Piper: Yes, every chance.
(Kit growls and hisses at Dan.) Dan: I wonder what her problem is? Piper: I gotta go now. Bye. (She closes the door and walks over to the bottom of the stairs.) Prue, did you find that warlock test yet?
[Scene: Manor. Living room. Prue and Phoebe are sitting on the couch looking through the Book of Shadows.] Prue: Nineteen warlock specific death spells and not one test. Piper: What if its a conspiracy? Jack and Dan working together, sweet talking and the whole time theyre figuring out how to kill us. Prue: Okay, now youre being paranoid. Piper: Well, how can we not, with warlocks and demons coming out of the woodwork all the time, its a wonder we trust anybody. Prue: We dont. (They find a spell.) Here it is. Piper: To hear secret thoughts? Prue: Yeah, we can hear Jack and Dans thoughts just long enough to confirm and deny our suspicions. Piper: No personal gain. Prue: Purely for protection. (Prue lights two candles.) Okay. Prue/Piper: "As flame lights shadow as truth ends fear, open locked thoughts to my minds willing ear, may the smoke from this candle into everywhere creep, bring inner most voices to my mind in speech." Piper: (thinking) Hey, shes wearing my lipstick. Prue: What, I cant borrow your lipstick? Piper: I didnt say that, Prue, I thought it. Prue: (thinking) Whatever, just learn to share. Piper: I heard that. This could be dangerous.
(Phoebe enters.) Phoebe: (thinking) Stay calm, calm down. Book of Shadows, needles and warlocks, and Erics in trouble, find out who, find out what. Piper: The hospital hottie? Phoebe: What? Prue: Uh, hows Eric? Did you see him today? Phoebe: Whys the Book of Shadows down here, girls? Prue: Jack blinked. Piper: And Kit hissed at Dan. Prue: Right, and we think that they may be warlocks, so we were looking for a test so we could test them. Phoebe: Hello, paranoid. Piper: We are not. Prue: Able to find a spell in the Book of Shadows. Phoebe: Well, just prick him. Warlocks dont bleed, so if theres no blood youve got your answer. Piper: (thinking) Who knew? Prue: (thinking) Phoebe did. The spell, dont tell her. Piper: Shouldnt we reverse it? Prue: Not until we really Phoebe: Are you two okay? Piper: So hows Eric? Has he asked you out yet? Phoebe: No, but hes in trouble. I had a premonition today. A demon or warlock maybe, with a needle thingy on his finger and he was sticking it into Erics head. So, I came home to see what we were up against. You guys go deal with Jack and Dan, and Ill go look on the Internet. Ill tell you if I find anything. Prue: (thinking) Great, were surrounded by warlocks. Piper: (thinking) Yeah, next time get your own damn lip stick. Prue: I heard that. Piper: I love you. Prue: (thinking) Bite me.
[Scene: Bucklands. Prues office. Jack enters wearing a bright shirt.] Jack: Prue! Prue: Jack, you actually wear that to work? Jack: (thinking) Ohh, feisty, feisty. (Out loud.) Well, when work puts me in front of an online server, handling 5 million online awesome hits a day, yeah I do. Whats the emergency? Prue: Fersuang. Jack: (thinking) My what? Prue: Fersuang Publications, the German conglomerate. You handled their C.E.O. Bronze ----- Collection for the internet auction, right? Jack: (thinking) Be careful, she suspects. (out loud) Yeah, of course. Prue: Well, I need some bronzes checked out. Who did your validation? Jack: Validation? Prue: You do have peoples collections validated dont you? Jack: (thinking) Mostly I put people in graves or incinerate them. (out loud) Oh, yeah. It was Walt Potarg at Berkley School and design. He was the best. (thinking) If she finds out that Im lying, shes gonna die. (out loud) Well, you know what? Im a little late, gotta go. Good to see you again. (He leaves.) Prue: Your dying first.
[Scene: Manor. The doorbell rings. Piper answers it.] Dan: You ready? Piper: Um, can you come in?
(He comes in and Piper closes the door.) Dan: Wheres your suitcase? Piper: Upstairs. Dan: I see. (thinking) Uh-oh, cold feet, shes backing out. Its okay, dont push it, dont push it. Piper: Look, dont move. (She freezes him.) Okay, um, this is gonna hurt me a lot more than it gonna hurt you. (She pricks his arm with a needle. Phoebe runs down the stairs) Phoebe: Piper, we have to get to Eric. Whats the matter? Piper: He didnt bleed, hes not bleeding, theres no blood, theres nothing. Phoebe: Yeah, of course hes not bleeding, hes frozen. Piper: Yeah, right. Okay go back upstairs.
(Phoebe runs back up the stairs.) Piper: Okay. (Dan unfreezes and he bleeds.) Dan: Ow! What the hell was that? Piper: Youre bleeding. (She touches his hand.) Dan: Just a little bit. (thinking) Love her touch. If she doesnt wanna go, its okay, dont force it. Piper: Dan, I really want to go. Dan: But
(Phoebe comes down the stairs.) Piper: Hes bleeding. Phoebe: Hes lucky. Hi, listen Dan, I have to borrow Piper for just a little while but Ill have her back soon, okay. (Phoebe stares at his butt.) (thinking) Nice butt. Piper: Hey! Hey, you hang in there and Ill be back in time. Dan: Yeah, I hope so. (Piper opens the door and Kit growls.) Oh, thats whats scaring Kit. You got hornets. Thats probably what stung me too. Piper: Yeah, um, probably. Okay, gotta go, dont leave without me. (Dan leaves.) Phoebe: Okay, gotta go, gotta go.
(They put on their coats.) Piper: Uh huh, uh huh.
[Scene: Erics apartment building. Phoebe and Piper are walking down the hallway.] Phoebe: Theyre called Collectors. Theyre a warlock (Someone walks past them.) They are a warlock breed that drains knowledge out of peoples brains with that weird finger I saw. Piper: The book didnt say how to vanquish them? Phoebe: No, it just said their hunger for knowledge is your all. Piper: Okay, whatever that means. Are you sure this is where he lives? Phoebe: The hospital record said 5D.Here it is.
[Cut to inside Erics room. Two Collectors are there and are holding Eric down on a table. One Collectors finger turns into a needle. Piper and Phoebe walk in and Piper freezes them.] Piper: Okey-dokey. Phoebe: Oh my God, that is Dr. Stone. Erics dads doctor. Piper: Alright, lets get him outta here. Well figure out what they want later. Are you ready? Do your little thingy. Phoebe: Okay.
(They unfreeze and Phoebe starts doing karate on them. Eric gets a gun out of a drawer.) Eric: Get back.
(Eric shoots them.) Phoebe: Oh my God. (They stand back up.) Okay, lets go, lets go. (They run outside.)
[Scene: Manor. Kitchen.] Eric: Theyre the ones who put my father in the hospital. They took his mind. Piper: Who do you think they are? Eric: (thinking) NCA, CIA, who knows? (out loud) Somebody in bullet proof vests. The question is- who are you? Phoebe: Friends. Eric: (thinking) Yeah, right. Theyre after the Akashic Records too. Piper: What are the Akashic Records? Eric: I knew it. Phoebe: Wait, what did you just say. Piper: The Akashic Records, what are they? Eric: You tell me. Phoebe: Ill tell you. Theyre a book of ancient prophecies. The future of the world down to the smallest detail hidden away and lost for centuries. But its just a legend. How did you Eric: Youre well informed. Phoebe: I read a lot. Piper, how did you know that? Piper: Ill tell you later. So, they want those records and they want Eric because he knows how to find them, right? Eric: Who are you people? Piper: What if its not a legend? Say theyre real. What happens if the bad guys get these records Phoebe: And they use the future against us? No more us. The bad guys win. Eric: I gotta get my father outta there. Phoebe: No, wait, Eric. Eric: Hes stuck in the hospital and Dr. Stones in on it. Phoebe: Eric, it is not about your father anymore. Its about you. Especially if they think you know how to find the Akashic Records. Eric: Try and stop me. (Phoebe grabs his arm and she flips him and he lands on his back on the floor. She sits on top of him.) How?
(Prue enters.) Prue: Entertaining guests I see. Phoebe: Hi! (Eric tries to get up.) Piper, could you help me out a little?
(Piper freezes Eric.) Prue: Whos the cute boy? Phoebe: Hes Eric, from the hospital. Two warlocks called Collectors wants whats in his brain. The location of the Akashic Records. (Phoebe gets off Eric.) Piper: (thinking) The lost text that predicts all future events. Collectors get it, the worlds a goner. Phoebe: Its a Prue: Its a lost text that predicts all future events. The collectors get it, the worlds a goner. I know. Phoebe: Okay, does someone wanna tell me whats going on here? Piper: (thinking) Have to tell her now. Prue: Okay, um, Phoebe. See Piper and I didnt really know about the whole pricking thing to expose a warlock. So, we sort of cast a little hearing thoughts spell, just to find things out. Phoebe: Oh, a hearing thoughts spell. Piper: (thinking) Dans clean by the way. Prue: (thinking) Glad to hear it. Jacks not. Phoebe: Wait, are you guys thinking something about me right now? Prue: No. Does Eric know witches and warlocks? Piper: No, he thinks its a government conspiracy. How do you know Jacks a warlock? Prue: I heard his thoughts and they are bad, really bad. You know graves, dead people, burnt bodies. Phoebe: Did you prick him? Prue: No, thats why I need Piper. Freeze him, prick him and then vanquish him if necessary.
(Piper sees a dagger on the table.) Piper: Whered you get that? Prue: Oh, remember the troubled priest with the warlock brothers? Well, they left this behind and Ive sort of hung on to it just in case we needed it for future warlock use. Phoebe: Wow, its been a while but it seems like theyre everywhere. Okay, you two go to it, Ill stay here. Piper: What if the collectors show up? Phoebe: Well, just get back before they do. Dont lose that dagger.
(Phoebe sits back on Eric.) Prue: (thinking) We have to go kill a warlock while she gets to sit on some guys Phoebe: Hey, hey, hey. Prue: You heard that? Phoebe: Like I need a hearing thoughts spell to know what youre thinking. (Piper unfreezes Eric.) Now, are you gonna behave? Eric: Do I have a choice?
[Scene: Outside the museum. Dr Stone is there. The other Collector walks up to him.] Dr. Stone: Did you find Eric. Collector: No. Dr. Stone: Not good. Hes been protected by a time freezing witch. Collector: And Bruce Lees little sister. Dr. Stone: The Akashic Records are within our reach. Collector: Its going to be very difficult to drain his brain if they know what were after. Dr. Stone: Not to worry. Well get in his mind. To his heart. Collector: Oh, very nice.
(Dr. Stone blinks and he disappears.)
[Scene: Bucklands. Prues office. Jack stands at the doorway.] Jack: Ah, there she is. Hard at work. Look, Im glad you called. Can I come in? Prue: Sure. Jack: (thinking) Stay focused, get it over with.
(Piper enters.) Prue: (thinking) Freeze him.
(Piper freezes him.) Piper: The dagger, his hand. Just cut him, poke him.
(Prue gets the dagger and cuts him.) Prue: Hes not bleeding. Piper: Hes frozen. Prue: Ugh, yeah, okay, okay, okay. Wait a minute. (She hides the dagger.) Okay.
(The door opens and hits Piper.) Piper: Oh!
(Another Jack enters.) Jack #2: Hey! Any survivors?
(Jack #2 walks next to Jack #1. Piper freezes him.) Prue: Okay, theres two of them. Piper: Twin warlocks? Prue: Or, maybe theyre just twins. Okay you unfreeze them, if that prick doesnt bleed, then that ones dead too. Piper: Alright. Prue: Right, let em go.
(Piper unfreezes them.) Jack #1: Ow! Jack #2: Whats the matter? She bite you? Jack #1: Your shouldnt be here. Jack #2: Come on man. I couldnt let you take all the blame. Piper: Hes bleeding. Prue: Alright, this is my sister, Piper, which one of you jerks is Jack? Jack #1: Uh, Im the jerk. This is my twin brother, Jeff. Jeff: Nice to meet you. Look, sorry for the little tap dance earlier. Prue: So, what exactly was it that you guys were trying to prove? Jack: Its just a little something we used to do growing Up. Jeff: Yeah, so, you know when one of us would take an interest in someone Jack: Dont get the wrong idea. Piper: So, youd send the other one to check out the merchandise, sort of kick the tyres? Jeff: Crude but accurate. Prue: (thinking) Still doesnt explain why he wanted to kill me. Piper: So, uh, Jeff, what is it that you do for a living? Jack: Oh, great, this should be a conversation stopper. Jeff: I own a mortuary. Actually, a whole chain of them. Piper: (to Prue) Mortuaries. Prue: (to Piper) Put em in graves, set em on fire. Piper: Mmm hmm. Prue: You know, you two should be ashamed of yourselves. (She walks up to Jack and slaps him across the face.) Thats for thinking you could get away with it. (Jeff laughs. Prue slaps him too.) And thats for thinking you wouldnt get slapped. Piper. (They leave.) Jeff: I approve.
[Scene: Manor. Eric is sitting at a table. Phoebe brings out some tea and pours it in two cups.] Eric: How did you know to be there to help me. Phoebe: Uh, its a long story. Eric: Shorten it. Phoebe: I have this gift. I sort of know when things are gonna happen. If theres gonna be trouble. Eric: How? Phoebe: Just something I was born with. Eric: So, you dont work for some government agency? Phoebe: No, Im just a girl. Now, let me ask you a question. This thing that you did, translating this ancient code or whatever. Why did you do it? Eric: I did it for my father. Phoebe: To finish his work? Eric: People hurt him and I wanted to find out who and I want to get even. Phoebe: Even out the risk of them hurting you? Eric: Hes my dad. I love him and if I cant have him back, I want justice. Phoebe: I envy you. Eric: Youre not close to your folks? Phoebe: My mum is dead. Eric: Im sorry. Phoebe: And my dad is gone. Eric: You dont know where he is? Phoebe: Im not really that interested. Eric: I dont understand that. Phoebe: You dont know my dad. Eric: Do you? Phoebe: No, I never got the chance to unfortunately. Okay, Im a sucker for family. Follow me.
(They walk out the room.)
[Cut to the foyer. Prue and Piper enter.] Piper: (Calling out to Phoebe) Jacks not a warlock. Prue: Hes a jerk.
(Phoebe and Eric enter the foyer.) Phoebe: Were going to the hospital. Weve got to get Erics dad out of there and keep him someplace safe. Come on.
[Scene: Hospital. Prue, Piper and Phoebe enter it. The place is deserted. The phone rings at the reception desk.] Piper: Where is everybody? Did you bring that dagger? Prue: Yep.
(Eric walks up to the desk and sees the receptionist lying on the floor. Eric runs down the hallway.) Phoebe: Eric, wait.
[Cut to Erics dads room.] Eric: Dad, we gotta get you outta here.
(Prue, Piper and Phoebe enter.) Phoebe: Eric Eric: Im getting him outta here, Phoebe. (Dr. Stone and the collector blink in the room. Prue uses her power and they fly up against the wall. The two collectors disappear.) Whats going on? Prue: Later. Phoebe: Get him. We gotta get outta here. Eric: Whered they go. Dr. Stone: Looking for that? (He holds up the dagger. He disappears.) Prue: He's got the dagger.
[Cut back in the room. Prue walks outside and gets a wheelchair Dr. Stone appears behind Piper, grabs her hair and puts the dagger near her neck. The other Collector appears behind Eric and grabs him.] Phoebe: Piper!
(Prue comes back in the room.) Dr. Stone: Move and she dies.
(Phoebe grabs a vase of flowers and hits Dr. Stone over the head. He lets go of Piper and falls to the ground. Prue uses her powers and releases Eric from the Collectors grip. Dr. Stone blinks and appears next to Erics dad. Prue gets ready to throw the dagger at them and they hold onto Erics dad and blinks out of the room.) Eric: Dad?
[Scene: Outside the Hospital. Erics running down the stairs. Prue, Piper and Phoebe are chasing him.] Phoebe: Eric! Eric, we still want to help you. Nothing has changed. (Eric stops running.) Eric: No, everything has changed. Some kind of monsters just took my dad. Phoebe: Theyre called warlocks. Eric: Warlocks? What does that make the three of you? Phoebe: Witches. Eric: Forgive me, but what youre saying is insane. Prue: Eric, you believe in the Akashic Records and all the power they represent, right? Eric: Yeah, I guess. Piper: Well, most people think thats a myth. Prue: But you now know that it isnt, so isnt it possible that other things like witches and warlocks actually do exist? Eric: Maybe, but why would warlocks want my dad? Prue: Theyre probably gonna offer you a trade. Your dad for whats in your head. Piper: And they can appear anytime, any place, which is why we need to get you back to the manor and youll be safer than anywhere else. Phoebe: Okay, look, Eric. I am the same girl you met at the hospital a few weeks ago. The only thing thats changed is now you know our secret. Eric: Its one hell of a secret. Phoebe: Yeah, and I trust you with it. So please, trust me in return. Look, if were gonna save your father, we have to keep you safe until we figure out what were gonna do. Eric: You do that. I have another idea.
(He walks off.) Phoebe: Okay, Im gonna go get him, you two get home.
(She runs off.) Prue: Do we have to protect him? Piper: He is pissing me off.
[Cut to the museum. Eric is getting a fire extinguisher.] Phoebe: Eric, what are you doing? Eric: Youll see.
(They start walking through the museum.) Phoebe: We shouldnt be out in the open like this. Its not safe. Eric: Then go. I have something I have to do. Phoebe: What? What do you have to do? Get busted, Eric. (They walk up to the map stone.) Wow, thats the map stone isnt it? Eric: You know, my father thought it would be so wonderful translating it. A gift of knowledge, to usher the world into the new millennium.
(He gets ready to break the glass. Phoebe stops him.) Phoebe: Whoa, whoa, whoa. What are you doing? Eric: If the Akashic Records are everything you say they are, theyre not a gift. I mean, the Warlocks shouldnt have that knowledge and neither should the rest of us. With all the knowledge revealed, we could have no free will. Phoebe: And no world as we know it. Eric: Maybe no world at all. (Eric smashes the glass cabinet with the fire extinguisher. The alarm goes off. Eric gets the map stone out and throws it on the ground. It smashes. Everyone stands there shocked.) Now no one else will ever be able to translate the map. The only place of longitude as this is in my head. (They run off.) A Guy: Ill get security.
[Scene: Manor. Prue and Piper are walking up the stairs.] Piper: Poor Eric. Prue: Hell be okay, well figure this out. Piper: Yeah, in the meantime warlocks have his father, I cant imagine how helpless he must feel. Prue: I can.
(They walk in the attic.) Piper: Prue, a warlock didnt take our father. Prue: No, he left on his own. Piper: Do you miss him? Prue: I didnt say that. Piper: Do you think about him? Prue: Why? (Prue starts looking through the Book of Shadows.) Piper: Because Im wondering if Im the only one who does. Prue: No, youre not. Piper: So you miss him. Prue: I miss who he shouldve been and I miss who he never was but I dont miss him. Piper: I do. Prue: Right, can we get to work. Piper: Okay, lets save someone elses father instead. Prue: The only way to protect Eric is to take the information out of his brain forever. The spell is right here. Piper: Ah, but if we do that, Eric wont have anything to offer the warlock and theyll be furious and theyll kill his dad. Prue: Eric is innocent. Our priority is him. Piper: Yeah, but theyre both innocents. Prue: Piper, I hope it doesnt come to this but we may have to make a choice. Piper: Why? I mean, theres gotta be another way with all the hocus pocus we have. Prue: Still may not be enough. I mean, were talking about the future, everyones future. Piper: So we have to sacrifice Erics dad? Prue: For the greater food. Piper: Man, you can dress it up anyway you want, it still stinks. Prue: You know what? It sucks.
(The doorbell rings.) Piper: Oh, thats Dan. I gotta deal with him. You gotta figure out what were gonna say to Phoebe.
[Cut to the foyer. Piper opens the door.] Dan: You ready to go? (thinking) Oh man, shes not coming. Piper: Dan, look, I wanna go, I really do, Im just not quite ready yet!
(Phoebe enters the foyer.) Phoebe: Piper, any word from the (She sees Dan.) pizza guy? Hi Dan, we ordered pizza, would you like to stay for pizza? Dan: (thinking) No, I wanna go with her. But whats the point? Piper: Okay, okay, I know what youre thinking Phoebe: (thinking) Piper! Piper: But I can be ready on time. Dan: Okay, well, I have to leave in an hour or Im gonna be late for the wedding rehearsals so the cars gonna leave the driveway at six. Hope to see you then. Piper: Okay. (She closed the door.) Dan: (thinking) Someday, someway, somehow, Im gonna make it through that damn door.
[Cut back to inside.] Eric: Have the warlocks made contact yet? Piper: Uh, no. Not yet. (Prue enters the foyer.) Where have you guys been? Phoebe: Well, Eric destroyed the map stone so were covered there. Did you guys find anything in the book? Piper: (thinking) You tell her. Ive broken enough hearts this afternoon. Prue: Well both tell her. Piper: Uh, why dont you check your messages at home. Maybe theyve tried to contact you there. Eric: Okay.
(He goes in the other room.) Phoebe: Whats going on? Piper: Can we talk?
[Cut to the living room. Erics checking his messages.] Operator: You have no new messages.
[Cut to the kitchen.] Phoebe: Wait, youre willing to let Erics father die? Piper: We cant risk losing Eric and allow the warlocks to gain future knowledge. Phoebe: But not at the expense of his father. We have to save him. Prue: Phoebe, we have to save everyones dad. We have to protect the whole world from these warlocks and we cant do it if they have the records. Phoebe: So, what am I supposed to tell Eric? That we might have to sacrifice his father? I cant do that, I promised him that we would save him.
(She starts to leave.) Piper: Phoebe Phoebe: (thinking) You dont even care. (She turns around.) Im sorry, I didnt mean that. I dont know why I even thought it. Prue: Do you want us to tell him? Phoebe: No, its something I have to do.
[Cut to the living room. Erics phone rings. He answers it.] Eric: Hello? Dr. Stone: Eric, I assume you know who this is? Eric: Wheres my father? Dr. Stone: Oh, so you do know. Good.
[Cut to the collectors. Erics dad is in a wheelchair.] Dr. Stone: Say hello to Eric, Ben.
(He puts the phone up to Bens ear.) Ben: Son? Eric: Dad? Ben: I feel so odd. Eric: Dad.
(The collector puts his needle finger in Bens head.) Dr. Stone: Oh, hes gone, Eric. But I can bring him back and give him to you. All I want in exchange is whats in ;your head. Eric: Where can I find you? Dr. Stone: The Oak Grove, the west end of Golden Gate Park. Half an hour. Alone. Without the witches.
(Phoebe comes in.) Phoebe: Eric? (Eric hangs up.) Any messages? Eric: Uh, no, not yet. Phoebe: Eric Eric: Listen, before you say another word, I just want to say thank you for everything that youve done for my father. For everything youd tried to do. Are you sure youre not an angel? Phoebe: No, Im no angel. I could probably introduce you to one though. Eric: Its a shame your father is not a part of your life. He would be so proud of you. Phoebe: Uh, Eric, I-I need to talk to you about you and your dad. Eric: Okay. Maybe we should have another cup of tea first. Phoebe: Okay, Ill go get it. Eric: Thanks.
(She goes in the kitchen. Eric starts walking towards the door. Prue and Piper come in.) Piper: Eric, where are you going? Eric: Uh, Im just gonna go out and get some air. (thinking) The Oak Grove, Golden Gate Park. Prue: Phoebe!
(Eric leaves. Phoebe comes in.) Phoebe: Where is he going? Piper: He was thinking Golden Gate Park. Phoebe: Oh my God, the warlocks must of contacted him.
[Scene: Golden Gate park. Prue, Piper and Phoebe get out of the car.] Prue: Alright, there are oak trees everywhere. Phoebe: (thinking) What if were too late? Piper: Phoebe, stop thinking that. Phoebe: Will you get out of my head please. Prue: Alright, the Book Of Shadows said that their hunger is their all, so there must be a way to use the knowledge that they require against them. Piper: Or use their greed to trap them. Prue: Yeah, well, if all else fails, then well freeze them and move them long along for Eric to get away. Phoebe: And save his father. Right? Look, it just seems to me that we should do everything we possibly can to reunite Eric with his father. I mean, imagine a dad who actually wants to be with his father. Prue: Pheebs, well do our best. Phoebe: Okay, then we should split up. The first one that sees him hollers.
(They all walk of in different directions.)
[Cut to Prue. Shes walking along and then a peacock makes a noise and runs past her. It scares her, she screams and puts her fists up. She calms herself down and continues walking.]
[Cut to Eric. He sees the collectors with his dad.] Eric: Dad! Dr. Stone: Thats close enough, Eric. I can restore him or I can kill him, Eric. That choice is mine. Eric: Restore him or you dont get what you want. That choice is mine. Dr. Stone: No, no, no. You cant bargain, Eric. Were in control here. Eric: Lets check again. (He lifts up his shirt and theres a gun in his pants.) Whos got the upper hand? Collector: Havent you been paying attention? That gun wont do anything to us. Eric: No, but itll blow my head off and if I do that, you wont get the second half of the map. Restore him. (He holds the gun up to his head.) Now! (The Collector puts his needle finger in Erics dads head and restores him.) Dad? Ben: Son? Eric, what are you doing? Eric: Dad. (Eric starts walking towards him. Dr. Stone disappears and reappears behind Eric. He grabs Eric and sticks the needle finger in Erics head.) Dr. Stone: Goodbye now, Eric. Like I said, were in control.
(Phoebe sees them, runs up to Dr. Stone and kicks him. He falls to the ground. The other Collector walks up behind Phoebe and sticks his needle finger in her head. Prue finds them, uses her power and the Collector goes flying and hits the ground. Prue runs over to Phoebe.) Prue: Phoebe. (Piper finds them. Dr. Stone disappears and the Collector stands up.) Piper: Prue, watch out. Collector: Thats right, witches, come and get me. (thinking) Dont blink. Keep them focused on me. Let him surprise them from behind. Prue: (thinking) Dont freeze him. Piper: (thinking) Why not? Prue: (thinking) Didnt you hear his thoughts? Hes playing decoy. Let him think that its working. (Dr. Stone appears behind Prue. Piper freezes them. Prue moves them closer together with their fingers near their heads. Piper unfreezes them and the Collectors fingers go inside each others heads. They disappear.) Prue: You know, they really shouldnt of given us the finger. Piper: You read my mind.
(Phoebe wakes up. Prue and Piper walk over to her.) Phoebe: Prue. Piper. Piper: Are you okay? Phoebe: I think so. What are we doing in the park? (Eric and his dad start waking up.) Who are those people? Prue: You dont recognise Eric? Phoebe: No. Why? Should I? Should I? Piper: Whats the last thing you remember? Phoebe: The Halloween party.
(They help her up.) Piper: That was three weeks ago. Phoebe: Oh. Prue: (to Eric) Are you alright?
(She helps him up.) Eric: Yeah, Im fine. Im just a little confused. What am I doing here? Piper: You dont recognize her? Eric: No (to Phoebe) I think Ive seen you at the hospital. Phoebe: Whos the cute guy? Piper: Shh
(Prue helps his dad up.) Eric: Dad? Ben: Eric. Eric: Oh my God, youre better. Ben: Whats going on? Whats happening? Eric: I dont know. Phoebe: Did we do something good? Prue: You did something incredible.
(Eric and his dad hug.)
[Scene: Manor. Prue and Piper are running down the stairs. Pipers carrying a bag.] Prue: Okay, what am I thinking? Piper: That Dans gonna leave without me. Prue: Nope. Good, the spells reversed. Piper: What a relief. (They walk in the foyer.) I think weve proven beyond a shadow of a doubt, that man and especially woman, arent meant to hear each others thoughts. (She puts on her coat.) Prue: Definitely. Too much knowledge whether it comes from the Akashic Records or other peoples heads is just dangerous stuff. Piper: So, what were you thinking? Prue: I was thinking what a shame it was that Phoebe finally met a nice guy and shes not even gonna remember it.
(The door opens and Phoebe walks in carrying a bunch of flowers.) Phoebe: Hi! Prue: Hi. Ah, theyre gorgeous. Phoebe: Theyre for you. The florist left them on the porch but theres no card. Prue: Theyre huge. Piper: Theyre expensive.
(A phone rings.) Prue: And theyre ringing. (She finds a phone in the flowers.) Hello? (She walks into the living room.) Piper: Dan! Hes leaving without me. Phoebe: Well, dont just stand there. Freeze him. Piper: Oh, right. (Piper freezes him.) I gotta go. (She leaves.) Phoebe: Thats such a nifty little power.
(She walks into the living room. Prues there trying to answer the phone. Phoebe sits on the same couch as Prue.) Oh, honey. (She takes the phone and flips it open. Prue laughs.) Prue: Hello?
(Phoebe puts her ear up against the phone as well to try and listen.) Jack: At last. Ive been calling you every twenty minutes for the last hour. Do you like the flowers? Prue: Jack, what do you want? Jack: You know, you are a very suspicious woman. Prue: No, I just like to think of it as careful. Jack: Oh, come on, Prue. Are you saying youve been totally honest with me?
(Phoebe starts making noises into the phone.) Prue: Jack, I cant hear you. The phones breaking up. Jack: I just, I wanted to apologize. Can I take you to dinner?
(Phoebe shakes her head.) Prue: I dont think so. Jack: Come on, let me buy you a drink.
(Phoebe shakes her head.) Prue: I dont think so. Jack: Well, can I at least get my phone back?
(Prue and Phoebe look at each other.) Prue: I dont think so. (Prue hangs up. They start laughing.) Phoebe: Ooh, I like it.
(Phoebe takes the phone and starts dialing a number.) Prue: What are you doing? Phoebe: Im calling Tokyo. Konnichi wa.
[Scene: Hospital. A room. Phoebes there putting magazines and flowers on a table. Eric enters.] Eric: Excuse me. Im looking for a doctor Swinsley. I need him to sigh some insurance papers. I was told he would be in here. Phoebe: Uh, yeah, he actually just took Mrs. Bruhn to the sun room. You could probably catch him there. Eric: Great. Thanks. Youre Phoebe, right? Im Eric Bragg. I think I saw you the other day at the park. Phoebe: Right, right, hows your father? Eric: Oh, hes better thanks. Hes almost back to his old self. I remember, you were really sweet to him when he was in here. Not many people would of bothered. You must be an angel. Phoebe: No, Im no angel. But I could probably introduce you to one if you like.
(They smile.) Eric: You know, I just realized I have no idea where the sun room is. Phoebe: Uh, its kind of complicated, maybe I should draw you a map.
(They look at each other as though the word map, rings a bell.)
