  • Episode Description
  • After Sabrina finds out that she was selected to read an essay she wrote about Math at a school assembly, her friends are surprised that she isn’t nervous about it. However, when she finally gets hit by stage fright, Sabrina turns to Salem for help and decides to use a fear removal spell to overcome her fright. As a result, Sabrina’s fear spreads throughout the school, resulting in her friends becoming scared over the tiniest things. Sabrina then learns from her quizmaster that she has to face her deepest fears in the Other Realm so everybody can return to normal. Elsewhere, after working night and day on a scientific paper to be presented in the Other Realm, Zelda develops a bad case of “witch-snap,” causing Hilda to become the serious aunt for a change.moreless

    • Quizmaster: Way to go, Sabrina! Now all you have to do is walk through that door and face your ultimate and final fear. Sabrina: Great. And if you find my nervous system anywhere around, I'd like it back.

    • Hilda: Didn't Millard Fillmore warn you? Sabrina: Actually, it was FDR, but I blew him off. Hilda: FDR? Oh, they've upgraded the Magic Book...

    • Salem: Sabrina? When are you gonna come out from under your blanket? Sabrina: Never! Salem: Don't be afraid. Life is short! Sabrina: Oh, please... What fearless thing have you done lately? Salem: Well, I... I... I... I slept in a pile of laundry I wasn't familiar with...

    • Hilda: I am really worried about her. She hasn't eaten or slept in days. She's even been too busy to disapprove of me. Salem: She must be dead!

    • Hilda: And now a little polka. And a one-a, and a two-a, and a three-a... (Hilda starts playing accordion) Sabrina: I didn't know it until now, but Aunt Hilda playing the accordion is my biggest fear!

    Allusions (3)

    • When Zelda is in witch-snap she says "Okay skipper, you and Gilligan forage for berries, while I prepare a coconut soufflè," and, "Glad you figured that out, professor. Maybe you can think of a way to fix the hole in the boat." These lines refer to the TV show Gilligan's Island (1964).

    • Libby: I'll be in the front row, just like I was for Titanic. Titanic is a 1997 romance film directed, written, produced and edited by James Cameron about the sinking of the RMS Titanic. It features Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet as Jack Dawson and Rose DeWitt Bukater, two members of different social classes who fall in love aboard the ill-fated 1912 maiden voyage of the ship. The main characters and the central love story are fictional, but some supporting characters (such as members of the ship's crew) are based on real historical figures.

    • Harvey: Who do you think I am? Evel Knievel? Robert Craig "Evel" Knievel was an American motorcycle daredevil, an entertainer famous in the United States and elsewhere between the late 1960s and early 1980s.
