  • Samantha becomes ill after being exposed to a rare rose and it is up to Aunt Clara and Darrin to make her better, a task which proves a little more difficult than they first imagined.moreless

    Samantha's pregnancy is going along well until she is accidently exposed to the black bloom of a rare Peruvian rose. This particular flower makes magical folk sick and Samantha looses her powers whilst also developing square, green spots all over her face.



    Aunt Clara, (Marion Lorne) however, in a rare moment of clarity, assures Samantha and Darrin that she knows the exact remedy for the condition and sends Darrin to a magic shop to get the required ingredients. The only two things missing are an ostrich feather (easily solved when Aunt Clara makes a real ostrich pop up in the Stephens' living room) and, unfortunately, some petals from the rare rose itself. Chaos ensues when Darrin is caught by the police trying to steal some blooms from the only man who has any of the roses, however, it's all sorted out when Sam regains her powers after drinking Aunt Clara's brew and is able to conveniently have several of the supposedly rare roses growing in the back yard.



    A very funny episode, Marion Lorne is brilliant, as usual, and a fine performance is delivered by the entire cast.moreless

    • Norton: (decides to let Darrin go) Darrin, all I know is, a man whose wife can raise black Peruvian roses, can't be all bad.

    • Aunt Clara: Well, I'll try and conjure it up (prepares spell-casting). Now, cross your fingers. (Samantha and Darrin do so)
      Darrin: Is that part of the spell?
      Aunt Clara: No, but I need all the luck I can get.

    • Darrin: (to the officer at the police station) Do I look like the type of man who would accost ladies in the middle of the night?
      Officer: No. No, I must admit you don't. You seem normal enough.
      Darrin: Well, thank you, Sergeant.
      Officer: By the way, what's in the bag?
      Darrin: Two bat wings, half a pint of porpoise milk, four eyes of a newt.

    • Aunt Clara: A Peruvian black rose was a part of the formula that they used to drive the witches out of Peru.
      Samantha: I didn't know they had witches in Peru.
      Aunt Clara: Well, they haven't. It worked.

    • Gladys: Nobody ever had square green dots before.
      Abner: Nobody ever had your chicken soup before.

    • Gladys: What's the door doing here?
      Darrin: It leads to another room.
      Gladys: Over the front lawn?
      Darrin: We're adding a nursery.
      Darrin: The room hasn't been built yet.
      Gladys: You mean, you put a door in the wall first?
      Samantha: How else would we get into the room to build it?

    • Abner: Gladys, you were born 100 years too late.
      Gladys: What do you mean by that?
      Abner: You'd have made a great town crier.
