  • TRIVIA (4)

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Hilda: Mmm, mulled cider.
      Zelda: Do you want some?
      Hilda: Let me mull it over.
      Zelda: Every Christmas that gets a little less funny.

    • (Thinking of a way to get Salem home)
      Sabrina: Can we focus? Okay we have five witches and a newt, we should be able to do something?
      Hilda: I've got it. We all hide inside a giant wooden horse.
      Zelda: Hmm, that worked so well the last time.
      Sabrina: What if I use my magic to pop into the house and grab Salem?
      Zelda: Too risky, if the little boy sees you you're caught. How will you explain it?
      Sabrina: I wouldn't, I'd just knock him down and run out of there as fast as I could.
      Hilda: Oh good plan! (after Zelda pokes her in her ribs) Bad plan.

    • Zelda: Stop it you two. It's Christmas eve and I don't want anymore arguing. Salem, you owe Sabrina an apology. Now!
      Salem: I'm thinking of how to word it.
      Hilda: Try 'I'm sorry'
      Salem: Somehow that just doesn't feel right.
      Sabrina: Forget it, I don't have time for this. I've gotta meet Harvey at The Slicery but now I've gotta change thanks to you.
      Salem: Er, since you thanked me, can I ask a favor?
      Sabrina Excuse me cat? You want a favor?
      Salem: Yeah. Can I tag along to The Slicery? I've got a touch of cabin fever and I'd really like to....
      Sabrina (Interrupting) Are you insane? I wouldn't bring you to The Slicery if you were the last person slash cat on Earth.
      Salem: Man, what's her problem?
      Hilda: You are so self centred, even for a cat.

    • Salem: What's the big deal? There was a mouse, I chased it. End of story.
      Sabrina: Not end of story. You got me kicked out of The Slicery, the one place I had a little privacy.
      Salem: Don't talk to me about privacy! I'm the one who has to relieve himself in a box in the middle of the kitchen. Do you know how hard it is to get that far away stare going?

    • Sabrina: Salem, were you in my closet again?
      Salem: Yeah, so?
      Sabrina: You ruined my favorite Christmas sweater!
      Salem: Yeah, so?
      Sabrina: It meant a lot to me.
      Salem: Then you shouldn't have hidden your diary under it.
      Sabrina: You were reading my diary again?
      Salem: Yes and it's duller than dish water.

    • Salem: I'll take some more egg nog and this time don't skimp on the Christmas cheer.
      Zelda: Oh, no liquor for you Salem. Your little kitty liver can't handle it.
      Salem: Gimme a break. You know I always get depressed this time of year.
      Hilda: Why?
      Salem: Well for one thing, I'M A CAT!

    • Sabrina: (as Santa Claus) I got you this spatula and this Neil Diamond box set.
      Rex: Neil Diamond? Didn't you get my fax?
