    • Zelda: Balls, balls, balls, balls! Hilda: What's going on? It sounds really interesting! (Sees Zelda surrounded by tennis balls) Oh. That's all?

    • Jenny: (Seeing Mr. Pool in a skirt) Wow, Mr. Pool's got legs! Sabrina: Oh, now I understand! Harvey: You do? Then explain it to me!

    • Sabrina: I can't believe this, I'm missing The Smashing Pumpkins! Salem: Bummer T. Jones, III.

    • Sabrina: Whoa! Do you know what's just dawned on me? You guys had lives before I got here. This is amazing, we have a lot of catching up to do. So, were you ever kids? Hilda: Yes, although it was back in the fourteenth century. There were no phones, no TV's, things were very different.

    • Hilda: Oh no, she's gone again. Sabrina: No I'm not, I'm on the bed. Hilda: How'd you get over here? Sabrina: Salem carried me in his mouth. Salem: It took all my self control not to eat her.

    Trivia (3)

    • In this episode, Zelda admits that she was married brieftly to Benvolio, but doesn't say that she was almost engaged to the artist that we meet in a season 6 flashback. Shouldn't such a serious relationship be mentioned?

    • We find out that Hilda has to take care of Salem and make sure he is worm free because Hilda was on his refreshment committee while he was trying to take over the world.

    • When Sabrina is annoyed with the tomorrow ball after it misreads her future, she picks it up off her desk and chucks it in her closet, but when her aunts take her upstairs when she has shrunk to 6 inches, they put her down on her desk and the tomorrow ball is still there (on the desk), when it hasn't been moved from the closet.
