  • Trivia

    • If Samantha can turn back time to correct a situation, why doesn't she do it more often when in a tough jam? Making Samantha this powerful for one episode is a plotting error that makes other plots less believable. Only a few episodes ago, Samantha can only do small things with her magic.

    • Humans cannot perform or learn witchcraft. That's frequently mentioned, particularly in "The Joker is a Card". However, in this episode, Samantha casts a spell such that the house, and all that is in it, cooperates with Darrin and his wishes. This way he is able to do magic without destroying the consistency.

  • Quotes

    • (Darrin just sent down a paper flier and got a pencil, flying by magic, back)
      Samantha: Darrin, before you get angry. Please be fair. You sailed something down to me, right? It was only fair, that I sail a little something back up to you.
      Darrin: (argues) What I did was not only extremely clever and humorous, it was aerodynamically sound. What you did, was witchcraft.

    • (Samantha just made it possible that all the items in the house cooperate with Darrin, she encourages him to give it a try)
      Darrin : (with a strong voice) Banana... come! ...Darrin.
      Samantha: You don't have to sound like Tarzan.
      Darrin: Well I never talked to a banana before.
