References to the Original Charmed
- The Vortex Viribus is similar to the Nexus in the original show: a location of concentrated power that amplifies anyone's magical abilities. And like in the original, the chamber is located under the Vera Manor.
- Medusa is featured in the episode. She appeared in the canon novel, Let Gorgons Be Gorgons. More similarities were her being a powerful witch of her era and had two older sisters who were also powerful. However, in the original series, Medusa turned out to be good; she was merely used by her evil sisters, who took advantage on the fact she was unfamiliar with the modern world, so the Halliwell sisters allowed her to live.
- The episode was watched by 0.65 million U.S. viewers.
- More than likely, this episode title can be a play on words of a a children's rhyme "Sticks and Stones" that persuades the child victim of name-calling to ignore the taunt, to refrain from physical retaliation, and to remain calm and good-living.
- Lucy returns in this episode. She was last seen in You're Dead to Me.
- Charity Callahan returns in this episode. She was last seen in Witch Perfect.
