Episode Summary

Sam and Darrin have dinner at a Chinese restaurant and Sam orders a drink called "The Heavenly Himalayan" which causes her to lose her powers and to break out with stripes on her face. Dr. Bombay tells her about an antidote and Sam gets it from an Apothecary, only to break out with more stripes on her face. Dr. Bombay then tells her that she needs a feather from a dodo bird, but then that doesn't work either. There is another important ingredient needed: a piece of Himalayan cinnamon stick from the Chinese restaurant. After Darrin gets in trouble for getting the cinnamon, he gets it for Samantha and she is cured again.moreless

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • A dinner date turns out badly for Samantha and Darrin.

    The hilarious Dr. Bombay is required urgently when Samantha and Darrin are dining at a nice Chinese restaurant and Samantha develops unbecoming stripes all over her face! The good doctor is quite certain that he has a way to fix it and delivers his 'remedy' which, unfortunately, makes matters worse. We then have a highly amusing romp as Darrin needs to help out in order to find a cure for his wife.

    This was a good second last episode and had a lot of the humour of the earlier seasons, which was good to see.

    Watch this one and enjoy as everyone tries to find a cure for Samantha's affliction.moreless
