    • Fiona: I'm starting to look less Samantha and more Endora every day.
      Referencing the 1964-1972 ABC TV series starring Elizabeth Montgomery as a witch, Samantha, who marries a mortal man, Darrin Stephens. She vows to forsake her powers and live life as a mortal woman, but is usually called upon to cast spells, usually to cope with her magic-wielding relatives who disapprove of the marriage. Samantha's mother is Endora, a meddling older witch who disapproves of her husband and makes her feelings clear at every opportunity.
