Episode Summary

A vacation that the Stephenses were supposed to take is scrapped when Darrin has to work. Endora takes it upon herself to separate Darrin into two different personalities: his work side and his fun and spontaneous side. While the working Darrin is concentrating on his job, the fun Darrin is concentrating on partying until he drops. Of course, all of this takes a toll when the Working Darrin bores Larry and his new client and Samantha must act as mother instead of wife to Darrin, the party animal. Samantha wants Endora to put the Darrins back together again, but ends up doing it herself.moreless

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • When a planned vacation is postponed yet again, Samantha begins to despair about ever getting away for a holiday with Darrin - until Endora comes up with a solution.

    Darrin, as always, has his nose to the grindstone at McMann and Tate and it doesn't look as though it's going to get better anytime soon when his boss, Larry, (David White) tells him that he can't take a planned vacation with Samantha because he has to be there to meet an important client.

    Both Darrin and Samantha are very upset by the news but they know only too well that Larry won't back down. Endora feels both angry and sorry for her daughter and decides to 'help' by splitting Darrin into two - a full-of-fun Darrin who can take Samantha away on vacation as planned, and a workaholic Darrin who can stay behind and meet with Larry and the client.

    At first, Samantha enjoys her vacation with her new, fun husband, but soon becomes very bored when he spends all his time chatting to other people and generally being the life of the party and not spending any time with her. Meanwhile, the workaholic Darrin is so driven that even the money-hungry Larry Tate and the client and bored to tears by his constant talk about the client's account.

    Samantha isn't happy and she knows the only way to fix things is to re-unite the two "Darrin's", which she successfully does.

    A very good episode and a lot of great acting skills shown by Dick York as he tackles the 'Two Darrins' with tremendous success.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • The pool area used in this episode for Florida is the same set used in episode 39, "We're in for a Bad Spell" when Darrin must push Adam Newlarkin into the pool.

    • During the diving in the pool scene, Samantha must twitch the "Fun Darrin" back out of the pool, because he doesn't know how to swim. In season seven however, Endora zaps up a pool into the backyard offscreen (where Darrin is standing) and he is fine.

  • NOTES (2)


    • The title alludes to a phrase from the American revolutionary war song, The Liberty Song: "United we stand, divided we fall." The phrase seems to go as far back as Aesop and is also the state motto of Kentucky.
