Episode Summary

EDIT
Garage door openers become the absolute rage when Samantha uses her magic to open her garage door. To ward off the Kravitzes, Darrin is forced to buy a remote control for the garage. The thrill is short-lived when airplane signals keep controlling the door, and Darrin accuses her of using magic. Sam swears that she will never use witchcraft again, but wish she had when a plane signal locks the garage -- with them in it! Darrin wants her to open the door, but Sam goes by her oath as another plane flies by. The door flies open and they are free to go, but they face another obstacle -- facing the Kravitzes!moreless

  • Samantha encounters a problem when Mrs. Kravitz sees her performing witchcraft and knows that she must convince her that she is wrong.

    7.5
    Now that she has her driver's licence, Samantha uses the family car quite a bit. Unfortunately, when Mrs. Kravitz (Alice Pearce) sees her open the garage door using magic, she and Darrin have to go the expense of purchasing an electronic door opener in order to allay her suspicions, which doesn't please Darrin as he wanted to use the money to buy new fishing tackle.



    All is well with the remote door opener until the wiring is short-circuted every time a plane flies over, meaning that the door opens and closes of its own free will. Darrin furiously accuses Samantha of using withcraft to control the door but she swears she is not. When the problem is finally uncovered by the men who installed the door, all should be well, until the Kravitz's decide to buy one as well and start having similar problems.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • The jets shown flying over are Boeing 707s, and while equipped with turbojet engines as evidenced by the trails of black smoke behind them and known for their characteristic howl, the sounds used were not the sounds of the Pratt and Whitney JT3D that the Boeing 707 and Douglas DC-8 were equipped with in this time period. The sounds were dubbed in and are likely that of a Lockheed F-104 Starfighter or another fighter of the period equipped with the Pratt and Whitney J-57/JT3C turbojet, which has a much higher pitched whine.

    • Sam tells Darrin that she will live longer than he will. But in episode 22, she tells him that she will zap herself into aging the mortal way.

    • In this episode Darrin and Samantha are trapped in the garage. During the door installation scene, it is revealed that there is a side door to escape.
