[Scene: Camp Skylark. Prue is standing there looking out at the lake. She starts remembering about her mother's death.]
[In the flashback: It's at Camp Skylark. You hear sirens. There's police cars and an ambulance there. You see Patty lying on the dock in a body bag with three people kneeled down next to her.
Medic: Third drowning this year.
Policeman: Anyone see it happen?
Some guy: Is that her little girl? Get her away from here. We don't want her to see her mum like this.
(You see little Prue standing on the dock.)
Little Prue: Mummy!
(A guy runs up to her.)
Guy: Are you Prue? Your Grams said we'd find you. Why don't you come back inside with me, okay?
(They guy picks her up and carries her off the dock.)
Little Prue: Mummy! Mummy!]
[The flashback finishes. Tears are running down Prue's face. Her phone rings and she answers it.]
Piper: Prue, are you still on the road?
Prue: Oh, yeah, traffic's insane.
Piper: Some guy called from Bucklands. I thought you'd be back from the estate sale already. I was just calling to see if you and my car were okay.
Prue: Yeah, we're fine.
(The phone beeps.)
Piper: Oh, that's um, that's probably Dan.
Prue: You know, he does live like twenty feet away. You guys could get walkie talkies, two cans, a string.
Piper: Point taken, mum.
Prue: Um, alright, go talk to your boy, I'll see you later.
(Prue hangs up. She starts walking towards the dock. She stands on the edge of it. She sees a guy in a canoe and the water starts bubbling next to it. He falls out and Prue runs along the edge of the water. The guy tries to get out of the water but can't. Another guy runs up to Prue.)
Man: No, it's too late. It's already taken him.
Prue: Just call 911.
[Scene: Manor. Piper's on the phone talking to Dan. She runs down the stairs into the kitchen. Phoebe's there reading the paper. Piper sits down at the table and pours cereal into a bowl.]
[Cut to Dan. He's eating Froot Loops.]
Dan: Uh, chewing.
[Cut back to Piper.]
Piper: I can't believe you eat that stuff.
Phoebe: You guys are killing me with cuteness over here.
Piper: (to Phoebe) Don't you have somewhere to be, somewhere very far away. (Phoebe moves closer.)
Dan: What do you say tomorrow, when Jenny's at school, we have breakfast for real?
Piper: I'll take what I can get.
Phoebe: Nausea. (Prue walks in.) Prue, what are you doing home? You told Piper that you were heading into the office.
Prue: Yeah, things changed.
Piper: Uh, Dan, I have to call you back, okay.
(She hangs up.)
Prue: Okay, I saw something or someone drown and it was anything but natural.
Piper: On the freeway?
Prue: No, up at the lake.
Phoebe: Oh, wait a minute. The lake as in the lake, where mum was killed?
Piper: You said you were stuck in traffic.
Prue: Yeah, I was after the lake. I just go there sometimes to think.
Phoebe: You never told us that.
(They walk past the dining room and up the stairs.)
Prue: Because I didnt want to make a big deal about it. Anyway, this isnt about mum, alright. I saw someone get pulled under, I tried to help him but this man stopped me and said "Its already taken him."
Piper: Do you think he knows what happened?
Prue: Could. (They walk in Prues room.) Which means I need to get to Bucklands to drop stuff off and get back to that lake.
Phoebe: Wait a minute, Prue, arent you kind of missing the point? How can you think that what ever you saw didn't have something to do with how mum died?
Prue: Look, we need to stop worrying about the past and start dealing with the present. Theyre re-opening camp.
Phoebe: I thought they closed it the summer that mum
Prue: Exactly. And no one has been allowed in the lake since and if theres something in it, killing, then the last thing we need is a lake full of kids.
Phoebe: Well, how do we find the guy that stopped you?
Piper: What about the woman who used to run the camp? Mrs. Johnson. If shes still up there, shell probably know who he is.
Prue: Shes still there, same cabin.
Phoebe: I guess you go up there to think a lot.
Prue: Ill meet you guys up at the lake. I should be there in an hour. (She leaves.)
Phoebe: Do you really think the things she saw has nothing to do with how mum died?
Piper: Nope. You?
Phoebe: Not a chance.
[Scene: Bucklands. Prue walks in her office and Jacks sitting at her desk.]
Prue: What are you doing here?
Jack: Pondering the possibilities.
Jack: Redecoration. Wheres your flair in this place? Panache? The Prue?
Prue: What? Well, I dont think thats any of your business, Jack. Now, if you dont mind, I have a lot of work to do, so perhaps you could go annoy somebody down the hall.
Jack: Actually already did. Signed the dotted line, they sent me to my office.
Prue: Your office?
Jack: Well, its only temporarily of course until mine is ready.
Prue: Wait, you think that youre working here?
Jack: Well, you said we couldnt date and work together so since you won't date me, one out of the two will have to do.
(She notices him wearing tight red shorts.)
Prue: And you consider that proper work attire?
Jack: Hey, if you can get away with wearing that, I can certainly get away with wearing this. And no wonder no one gets any work done around here, you look wooow!
Prue: Flattery will get you nowhere.
Jack: Well, got me this job.
Prue: Okay, look, I have to go take care of some personal things, so until I get back lets just employ a hands off policy, meaning dont touch anything.
Jack: Tell you what. Take your time, Ill sit back here and make myself comfy. (He leans back in the chair and falls backwards on the floor.)
Prue: Really nice form, but the dismount could use a little work.
Jack: Meant to do that.
[Scene: The lake. Mrs. Johnsons place. Phoebes looking at a photo and Mrs. Johnson brings in some cookies.]
Mrs. Johnson: Well, Im finding it hard to believe enough times gone by for you to of grown up so much. Here. (She hands Piper the plate of cookies.)
Phoebe: Aww, look at little Prue. Nice pigtails Piper. (She laughs.)
Piper: Not fair.
Phoebe: No, whats not fair is that I never got to go to camp with you guys.
(She grabs the plate off Piper and starts eating a cookie.)
Piper: Um, we heard you were thinking of opening up the camp again.
Mrs. Johnson: Oh, was. I thought it was over and then today another drowning. I cant ask the campers to go swimming in the lake when
Piper: Um, we were wondering if you might help us with something. Prue was up here the other day and she mentioned a man, um, older, a bit off.
Phoebe: I think the word that she used was crazy.
Piper: We were wondering if you might know who he is.
Mrs. Johnson: Oh, Sam. Only one it could be. The mans not wired together properly. He showed up when the drownings started. He just stayed here, no friends, no life of his own. You know, with someone like that, you have to wonder what hes capable of. (Piper and Phoebe look at each other.
[Cut to outside. Prue pulls up in Pipers car. She gets out and stares out at the lake. Piper, Phoebe and Mrs. Johnson walk up to her.]
Piper: Mrs. J., you remember my sister, Prue.
Mrs. Johnson: Oh, Prue, of course I do. Its good to see you. (They hug.) Wow! Youre looking more and more like your mother everyday.
Prue: Um, actually its Piper who resembles her the most.
(Theres an awkward silence.)
Phoebe: People see a little of her in each of us, I think.
Mrs. Johnson: Of course. Will you come see me again? The old broad gets lonely up here. I love to see my campers.
Mrs. Johnson: Bye.
Phoebe: Bye. Thank you.
(She goes back up to her house.)
Piper Shes not opening the camp, Prue.
Prue: Really, so that means its just between us and whatevers hiding in that lake. Any word on that crazy guy?
Phoebe: His name is Sam and he lives right
(Prues phone rings. She answers it.)
Prue: Hello, this is Prue.
Jack: Hey, hows my favourite auctionette?
Prue: Fine, hows my favourite auction-ass?
Jack: Ooh, nice one. Hey, listen, I just wanted to let you know that since youre not here, Im gonna take your twelve oclock lunch with Mr. Fugimotto.
Prue: Ah, no, no, no. Wait, Mr. Fugimotto is very particular.
Jack: Prue, would your relax. I will take great care of your client okay. Later. (He hangs up.)
Prue: I just can not figure out what this guys deal is.
Piper: Thats funny, we were just gonna ask you the same thing.
Prue: Excuse me?
Phoebe: Every time someone compares you to mum you flinch. Its a compliment, not a curse.
Prue: Is it? Because every single day, I feel like Im becoming more and more like her and everyday it terrifies me.
Prue: I mean, dont you guys see it? Look at what happened to her and then look whats happening to me. No successful relationship with guys, being responsible for a family, now because of being this charmed thing, the very real possibility of dying young, its like history is repeating itself.
Piper: Prue, that's all just...
Prue: Coincidence? I thought that we had figured out that nothing is a coincidence in our lives. Like me being here when that thing attacked, its like I was meant to be here.
Piper: Well, youre not exactly meant to be here when youre here every week.
Prue: Alright, look, I just wanna find this Sam guy, see what he knows about the demon, vanquish it and get on with our lives.
[Scene: Later on at the entrance to the camp. Mrs. Johnson is taking down a "Welcome Campers" sign. She hears a boat hitting the dock. She walks on the dock, and over to the boat. She notices its not tied up and kneels down to tie it up. The water starts bubbling and a man jumps out of the water, grabs Mrs. Johnson and he jumps back in the water.]
[Cut to Sams place. Prue, Piper and Phoebe enter.]
Phoebe: Sam? Be vewy, vewy quiet. Were hunting demons.
Piper: I guess hes not home.
(Prue looks through some sheets of paper and finds a picture of their mother.)
Prue: Oh my.
Piper: What? What is it?
Prue: What is he doing with a picture of her?
Piper: Who is this guy?
Phoebe: Or what?
(Prue finds some newspapers.)
Prue: Okay, he has articles on every single drowning at the lake.
(Piper finds a certificate.)
Piper: "New York teacher of the year, Sam Wylder." In 1872?
Phoebe: Okay, so this guy is either 127 years old or
Piper: A demon.
Prue: Named Sam? A demon named Sam? I mean, cant it be his grandfathers certificate? After all, he did save me.
(Piper opens a drawer and finds some letters.)
Piper: What are these? I found... (Leo orbs in and scares Piper.) Whoa! Leo, hi, what are you doing here?
Leo: Come on, we gotta get outta here. Sam could be back at any minute.
Prue: Wait, you know Sam?
Leo: Come on, we gotta
Prue: We are not going anywhere until you tell us what you know. Who is Sam?
Leo: Sam was your mums Whitelighter.
[Scene: The lake.]
Piper: Sam was mums whitelighter?
Leo: Emphasis on was. When your mum died, Sam clipped his wings. Hes mortal now, but once, yeah he was a whitelighter. He looked after your mother.
Phoebe: Then he lost our mum.
Leo: To the same demon youre fighting now.
Piper: And you knew? This whole time hes been living up here while
Leo: I couldnt tell you. And what would it change? It would only distract you, maybe even gotten you killed. I mean, you guys were gonna have to face this thing sooner or later. And Im here to make sure you do it with a clear head. Emotions will get the best of you if you let them.
Piper: Well, can you really blame us?
Phoebe: Leo, he let our mother die.
Prue: Leos right, this isnt about mum and its not about Sam for that matter. Its about a demon whos waiting until tomorrow for brunch to be served.
Piper: Mrs. Js not opening the camp.
Prue: That doesnt end it, it just stalls it.
Leo: You guys are behind and need to catch up. Book of Shadows, get a working knowledge of this demon before you face him.
Phoebe: Hmmm, said like an unfeeling professional. This is personal for us, Leo.
Piper: Leo doesnt do personal anymore, he just does his job.
Leo: Now that Ive done it, I guess theres no reason for me to hang around.
(Leo orbs out.)
Phoebe: Okay, hes gone. Now you can explain.
Prue: Explain what?
Phoebe: Why youre acting like all of this doesnt phase you, Prue. We are talking about how our mother was killed.
(They hear Mrs. Johnson screaming for help.)
Piper: Is that Mrs. Johnson?
(Piper and Phoebe run on to the dock. Prue stands on the edge.)
Phoebe: Your hand, give me your hand! Prue, what are you doing? We need you. (Prue starts thinking about the day her mother died and when shes in the bodybag.)
Sam: Get off the dock! Its her! Its taken her over!
(Mrs. Johnson goes under the water.)
Phoebe: Oh my God
Sam: Get off the dock now! (Water squirts up in the air and they run off the dock.) Why didnt you listen to me? I told you to stay away from the lake. It only kills in the water. Why didnt you listen to me? Nobody ever listens.
Prue: We know who you are.
Sam: You shouldnt listen to people in town, theyll just tell you Im crazy but Im not.
Piper: We know you worked with our mother.
Phoebe: And lost her.
Sam: I knew youd come. I knew it. And then when I saw you (Prue) its in your eyes, your mother.
Phoebe: You have no right talking about her. You lost that right when you lost her. Why are we dealing with him?
Piper: Because we need to know what he knows. Sam, you have to tell us about the demon.
Sam: No, no, you cant fight this thing. Its under water but it has a
it-it thinks. You never know where its gonna be, who its gonna be. Sometimes it takes over its victims bodies to lure you to the water. Sometimes it doesnt. Leave now, please! Forget you ever came here. Forget you ever knew.
Prue: How can we do that? I mean, its out there killing. We cant just walk away.
Sam: You really wanna know what I know? I know youre not strong enough or well versed enough in your powers to take this thing on. (to Piper) I know that you have the same power as your mother. The power to freeze. And you know what happened when she tried to use it. (to Prue) And I know you'll let your emotions get in the way, you'll lose focus and youll lose your life. Thats what I know.
Prue: Well, you obviously dont know us that well because were not leaving.
Sam: Strong, willful, just like Patty.
Prue: Im nothing like my mother.
Sam: But youre here. Just like she was.
Prue: But well beat it. Now, you have one choice. You can either get on board or get the hell out of the way.
Sam: The power of three. Okay, okay. If youre gonna do this then youre gonna need me to help you.
Phoebe: Alright, enough of this. How do we kill it?
Sam: You dont. (He blows magical dust at them.) Now, youre gonna go home and youre gonna go directly to bed. Then when you wake up tomorrow you will not remember coming to the lake, or discovering the demon, or meeting me. I cant let it happen again.
[Scene: Manor. Its morning. Prue, Piper and Phoebe walk out of their rooms.]
Prue: I fell asleep, woke up, and suddenly its Thursday.
Phoebe: I dont feel so good.
(Pipers scratching her arms.)
Prue: Oh! Whats that?
Piper: I dont know. I itch everywhere.
Phoebe: It looks like the time Prue got poison ivy.
Piper: But Prue got poison ivy at camp and
(The doorbell rings.)
[Cut to downstairs. Piper answers the door. Dans standing there holding a tray with bowls of cereal on it. Piper looks confused.]
Dan: You dont look hungry, you look confused, and youre contagious.
Piper: Dan, what are you
Dan: Breakfast. Me, you, here, remember?
Piper: Uh, everythings a little hazy this morning.
Dan: Well, is there anything I can do?
(Leo orbs in behind the door.)
Piper: You can hold that thought. (She freezes him and closes the door.)
Leo: What are you doing here?
Piper: What are you doing here? I live here. What, are you checking up on me and Dan? I thought we talked about this.
Leo: It has nothing to do with him. Why arent you up at the lake?
(Prue and Phoebe walk in the foyer.)
Phoebe: What lake?
Leo: Look, nobody has shut down the camp, so the kids are on their way there now. (Prue, Piper and Phoebe look confused.) He did it didnt he?
Prue: Did what?
Phoebe: Who did what? Who is he?
Leo: Sam, used a power, sort of like a supernatural mickey. He must of gotten it from
Leo: Good, its fading. Now, concentrate. Its sort of like remembering a dream. Okay, the lake, the kids, the demon, Sam.
Piper: Sam? Why would he do this to us?
Leo: To keep history from repeating itself.
Piper: Oh, just a sec, you guys scoot. Go, go, go. (Prue and Phoebe walk in the living room. Piper opens the door. Dan unfreezes.) Dan, I know we were supposed to do this this morning, but Im really not feeling up to it.
Dan: Well, Ill cook while you scratch.
Piper: I cant, theres just some stuff, family stuff going on.
Dan: Say no more. I completely understand.
Piper: Id kiss you but
Dan: But youre contagious. Tomorrow. Im just glad you can tell me things.
Piper: Well, I feel like I can tell you anything. (Dan leaves. Piper closes the door.) Except that theres a demon.
Leo: And that youre a witch. (Piper looks at him.) Sorry, that was
Piper: The truth.
(Prue and Phoebe come back in.)
Phoebe: We should go get dressed.
Prue: The only place you will be going, contagious girl, is back to bed.
Prue: But nothing. You just look in the Book of Shadows for this things Achilles heel.
Piper: But what if there isnt one?
Phoebe: Then were screwed.
[Scene: The lake. Prue and Phoebe pull up in the car. They get out.]
Phoebe: How are we doing in the plan part?
Prue: I think that I just got one.
Phoebe: I love when you take charge.
Prue: Okay, you know that powder that Sam used on us? Maybe we should use it on the kids. Make them temporarily forget that they want to go in the water.
Phoebe: And thatll keep them safe until we find out how to dehydrate this bastard.
Phoebe: Oh! (They see the kids playing near the water.) Pre-pubescent demon food.
Prue: Okay, go keep them out of the water. Tell them anything. Ill deal with Sam.
(Phoebe runs over to them.)
[Cut to Sams place. Prue enters. Sams sharpening an axe.]
Sam: I knew I shouldve given you a stronger dose.
Prue: Not only did you put my sisters and me in danger but you risked innocents lives. How could you?
Sam: I did what I had to do to protect you and your sisters.
Prue: Not that. This. All these years. How could you just sit here and watch them die? People that you were meant to protect.
Sam: Well, in case you didnt get the memo, Im not one of the good guys anymore.
Prue: Part of you is. Part of you always will be.
Sam: Ive done nothing but make your life difficult. What makes you so sure?
Prue: Because you saved me. You still have Whitelighter instincts Sam. You may have clipped your wings but this still gets you, it matters.
Sam: What matters most was taken from me twenty years ago.
Prue: Then we have something in common.
Sam: You think I choose to stay here, to watch? That, that Id get my kicks this way? Ive been waiting for you.
Sam: I knew you'd come, and I had to be here to stop you. To, to save you.
Prue: Because you couldnt save mum. Sam, I need the powder and then Im gonna need for you to tell me how mum was gonna vanquish this thing. If youre gonna defeat your demon, Sam, then youre gonna have to help us defeat the one out there. We need your help.
(Sam opens a drawer and gets out the powder.)
Sam: Ill try to face mine. The question is can you face yours?
[Scene: Manor. Kitchen. Leos got his hands above the Book of Shadows and the pages are flipping by themselves. He gives up and Piper enters carrying a washing basket.]
Leo: I cant find anything.
Piper: Well, then you dont have to stay with me. Looks of sympathy are not part of your job description.
Piper: Um, why didnt your healing touch work? I mean, what, you can save a life but you cant cure poison ivy?
Leo: Its not really up to me. I can only heal when they allow me to, when Im meant to.
Piper: Well, why werent you meant to help me? Why wouldnt I be meant to help my sisters?
Leo: Theres always a reason. Maybe youre meant to be here.
(Piper searches through the washing and finds some letters.)
Piper: Dear Sam? Leo.
Leo: What is it?
Piper: Letters that my mum wrote to Sam. I mustve forgotten about them because of the powder. "Dear Sam, Where are you? Its been two weeks since you were last here and I wonder are you alright. Do they have you off guiding someone? And I wonder when they will send you back to San Francisco. To me.
Leo: Is this a
Piper: A love letter?
[Scene: The lake. Phoebe and the kids are in some room.]
Phoebe: Okay, how about Red Rover?
Phoebe: Alright, alright, how about Thumbs Up, Seven Up?
Phoebe: Ooh, ooh! Lanyards.
Kid #1: This sucks. We wanna go swimming
Prue: Oh, shh, shh.
(They stop cheering.)
Phoebe: Oh, you know, I couldve done that. Did you get the powder?
Prue: Oh, I got rather more. (Sam enters.)
Phoebe: Your didnt have to bring him.
Prue: Yes I did.
(Prues phone rings.)
Phoebe: Okay, you go deal with that, Ill take care of this.
Prue: Okay. (She walks outside and answers it.) Piper.
Jack: Piper? I hardly know her.
Prue: Jack, Im sort of in the middle of something.
Jack: Yada, yada, yada. Look, Im gonna conference Mr. Fugimotto about the carousel horse okay. Hold on.
Prue: Uh, no, no, no, wait.
Mr. Fugimotto: Hello?
Prue: Mr. Fugimotto, hi.
Mr. Fugimotto: Miss Halliwell, have you seen it?
Prue: Im looking at the object right now.
Mr. Fujimotto: How is it?
Prue: Um, well, yeah, you can tell by the jewel choker that its an original carousel horse from the 1939 World Fair in New York City and
Jack: Oh, and Mr. Fugimotto, theres another thing you should probably know about the piece. (He starts talking in Japanese. Then Mr. Fujimotto talks in Japanese.) Okay, good. Ill have the paperwork sent over today. Alright, bye.
Prue: So, who are you crediting as the sales agent, Jack?
Jack: Prue, do you not trust me?
(Prue hangs up.)
[Cut to inside. Phoebe blows the powder on to the kids.]
Phoebe: Okay, now remember kids, on your way to bed, water bad, land good, water bad, land good.
[Scene: Manor. Piper and Leo are sitting in the cane chairs. They're reading the letters.]
Piper: "Sam, yes you were clear. My eyes were open to the difficulties, the risks, but my answer is the same as it was when you were still here with me. No one understands me the way you do, no one can."
Leo: "What I wouldnt do for what other people consider ordinary. A conversation that gets finished, a night spent uninterrupted. A night with you."
Piper: Its like I couldve written these.
Leo: I wish you had.
Piper: What would it have changed? Looks like this one is about our water demon. "You cant be with me up at the lake. This demon is too strong and I cant risk losing you, not for myself or the others you protect. They must as always come first. You know Id never face this demon if I didnt think Id be home in time for dinner to see my girls, to see you." She never came home. When did this happen? Where was dad?
Leo: Your sisters need to know about Sam, your mum, Piper.
Piper: And if this demon is as strong as she thought, then theyre going to need me but how do we get there in time to
Can you? I mean, is that breaking the rules?
Leo: What rules havent we already broken? Ill have to hold you.
(Leo holds Piper and they orb out.)
[Cut to the lake.]
Prue: Its time Sam. We need to know. How was mum gonna vanquish it?
Sam: I dont know. I failed, I lost her, isnt that enough?
(Leo and Piper appear.)
Piper: Whoa, that felt really
alright, oh, laying down now. (She sits down on a chair.)
Prue: What are you doing here?
Piper: He loved her.
Prue: What? Who loved who? What is she talking about?
Leo: Sam. Found the letters, Sam.
Sam: Patty and I
Piper: Fell in love.
Leo: In the letters she told you to stay away. Not to go to the lake.
Sam: But I did. I wouldnt have for anyone else. But I shouldve followed the rules, not fallen in love. I never wouldve been there. I never wouldve distracted her and she never wouldve died.
Phoebe: You loved her and you blame yourself.
Sam: Do you blame me? Everyday I wake up and for just a second, just a second I think maybe it didnt happen. Yes I blame myself.
Prue: We have to see past our emotions to deal with this, Sam. So do you.
Sam: Even so, it doesnt change the fact that I didnt see it happen. I tried to warn her and she froze me.
Piper: Because she was trying to protect him.
Sam: Protecting was supposed to be my job. I couldnt help her, I dont know how I can help you, I didnt see what happened.
Prue: I know somebody who can see anything.
Phoebe: Oh, no. Wait a minute. You tiptoe around the subject of mum, you deny looking like her, you cant even go to the end of that dock because youre afraid to walk in her footsteps and now you want me to relive her last moments? How is that fair?
Prue: Its not. None of this is. Mums death, Sams guilt. But Im asking you to help me end it.
(Phoebe walks over and holds Sams hands. She has a premonition. In the premonition: Pattys on the dock. She grabs a power cable. Sam comes running towards her.)
Sam: Patty, look out!
(Patty freezes him. The water demon raises up and a whole heap of water falls on top of her. The premonition ends and Phoebe starts coughing.)
Piper: Did you see her?
Phoebe: It entered her and it drowned her from the inside.
Prue: Phoebe, in your vision, what was mum doing?
Phoebe: She was using something on the dock. Some... a wire?
Leo: Power cable?
Piper: Makes sense. Electricity is the only thing that separates water particles.
Phoebe: So, what do we do differently?
Prue: Maybe nothing. Sam, would mums plan have worked if she had finished it?
Piper: But you said her power, my power, doesn't work against this demon.
Phoebe: So thats it. We use mums plan with one difference. The witch at the end of the dock is not gonna be the one with the power to freeze.
Prue: Its gonna be me.
[Scene: The lake.]
Piper: Are you ready?
Sam: You dont have to do this.
Prue: Yes, I do.
Phoebe: Just focus on the demon, not what this is about.
Sam: Forgot how good this feels.
(She starts walking to the dock.)
Leo: Really? Hows it feel to be mortal?
Sam: Why would you want to know? (Prues standing on the start of the dock. Sam walks up to her.) Lets go face our demons. (They walk onto the dock. Prue picks up the power cables.)
Prue: Okay, you in the water. I know that youve been waiting for this. For me. Well, here I am, so come and get me. You took what matters most to me and as long as I live, you will never kill again.
(The water starts bubbling.)
Piper: Prue, behind you!
(Phoebe and Piper start running towards the dock.)
Leo: Piper, wait! (Piper freezes Leo.)
(The water demon rises out from under the water.)
Sam: No! Not her! Take me! (It then sweeps over Sam like a wave and enters his body.) Stay back!
(Sam picks up the power cables.) Now! (The power turns on and Sam gets electrocuted. He falls to the ground.)
Prue: No, Sam.
(Phoebe and Piper run up to them. Leo unfreezes.)
Sam: Its gone, its gone.
Phoebe: Leo, do something.
(Leo tries to heal Sam.)
Prue: What? Why isnt anything happening?
Piper: Because its not meant to.
Sam: Its okay, its time to go.
Sam: I did what Ive been waiting to do, I kept it from happening. History wont repeat itself.
Phoebe: But youre going.
Sam: Im gonna see Patty again. (to Leo) Dont lose her. (Pattys spirit appears.) Patty? Patty?
Prue: Say hi for me, for us.
(Sams spirit appears next to Patty. They disappear.)
[Scene: Bucklands. Prue enters her office. Jacks there.]
Prue: Um, I have something to say, okay. I have worked at Bucklands for a year and a half and in that time I have survived take overs, near bankruptcy, and superiors from hell who have tried to kill me. So, whatever it is that youre planning to do or already done, nothing and I mean nothing will surprise me.
Jack: I just need you to sign this. Its the confirmation sheet on the Fugimotto sale.
(He shows her a sheet of paper.)
Prue: You listed me as the sales agent.
Jack: It was your deal wasnt it?
Prue: You covered for me, Im surprised. So, um, what do you say as a thank you, I take you to dinner?
Jack: But wouldnt that be breaking one of Prue Halliwells rules of etiquette?
Prue: Ive decided that even though mixing business with pleasure can have its very nasty consequences, it can also bear some fruitful rewards.
Jack: Um, so, whats it gonna be? Nasty or fruitful?
Prue: Well, that depends on how you do at dinner.
[Scene: Manor. Living room. Phoebes sticking Pattys letters in a photo album. Pipers sitting on the couch putting stuff on her poison ivy.]
Phoebe: At least fighting this demon came with a consolation prize. I mean, it didnt bring mum back but these brought her closer.
Piper: Its a good idea, Pheebs. Making a journal out of mums letters.
Phoebe: Yeah, not as good as the real thing though.
Piper: Nothing is. (Leo orbs in near the kitchen. Piper sees him but Phoebe doesnt. He gestures with his head for her to go over there.) Um, tea. You want some tea? Im gonna go get some.
(Piper goes in the kitchen.)
Leo: I dont want to interrupt.
Piper: I think I can steep and talk at the same time. Do you want any?
Leo: Its just this, this whole situation you know, Sam, your mum, those letters. He loved her. Like I love you.
Piper: Leo, weve been through this before, we both know how we feel, but there are things, people involved now.
Leo: Can you tell Dan the truth, Piper?
Piper: Thats between him and me. You and I have a job to do and I thought that we agreed to try and put that first.
Leo: So did Sam and your mum. Look at the outcome.
Piper: Youre leaving arent you? For good this time.
Leo: I dont know. But I do know we have to stop working together because I cant stop loving you. Which means I cant do my job.
Piper: And I cant do mine. I dont know how to say goodbye.
