  • Sabrina's Halloween party becomes chaotic but cool with talking furniture and a river of candy corn!

    9.4
    This is arguably one of the best Sabrina Halloween episodes! Valerie informs the school that Sabrina will be having a Halloween party to try and compete with Libby, yet she doesn't know (of course) that Other Realm furniture has just arrived at the Spellman house--and they have termites. While Hilda and Zelda try to calm down the furniture, the candy corn recipe overflows filling the kitchen. Sabrina tries to tone down the witchy chaos but ends up throwing a boring party...until, of course, the magical furniture begins to speak and the guests believe it is simply a great Halloween prank. Then when candy corn busts through the doors, and the 10,000 Maniacs show up to sing, the Westbridge High students deem Sabrina's party the best. Overall, a great episode, filled with a lot of humor. The furniture with termites certainly made the episode what it was. <i>Sabrina</i> would have many bands/singers on during her 7 year run, and the 10,000 Maniacs (who were once popular) did a great job. Certainly a Halloween spectactular!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Sabrina's quiz from the Quizmaster in this episode was for Sabrina to make a pumpkin. However, the quiz was a fake one. The Quizmaster just made it up because he was lonely.

    • When Hilda and Zelda are both mixing the candy corn Hilda has a big spoon and Zelda has a thinner one, but when the camera angle changes they have swapped spoons.

  • QUOTES (13)

    • Zelda: Apparently, we accidentally bought talking furniture.
      Hilda (to Sabrina): Do you wanna say "duh" or should I?
      Sabrina: Talking furniture? What, were they people that we turned into furniture?
      Hilda: Of course not!
      Salem: Where would you get an idea like that?

    • Hilda: Can I lick the bowl?
      Zelda: Yes. Of course you'll be horribly burned...

    • Zelda: Sometimes it's so hard to be young...
      Hilda: I know. But I think I handle it pretty well...

    • Zelda: Why don't you have kids over more often?
      Sabrina: Because like most teenagers, I'm very self-conscious about the fact that WE'RE WITCHES!!

    • Salem: Okay, listen up you upholstered losers. If you misbehave for just one instant, I'll cut you man.

    • Harvey: My mom and dad say I have take my little brother and his friends trick or treating.
      Sabrina: You're kidding! Did they just spring this on you?
      Harvey: Yeah! They just now reminded me that they told me about it two weeks ago.

    • Valerie: Sabrina, you might wanna know... you're having a Halloween party.
      Sabrina: What?!
      Valerie: Well I was going to say it was gonna be at my house but I was afraid my parents would dance.

    • Valerie: How do we get to be friends with those guys?
      Sabrina: I think we'd have to fill in a form. Do you know what I'd say to Asher if he talked to me?
      Valerie: What?
      Sabrina: (Weakly) Hello.
      Valerie: That would take guts.

    • Salem: If you ladies don't mind I've got a lot of new territory to mark.

    • Hilda: I am so glad. I hate flying during the holidays. The traffic getting back from the Universe is always vacuum to vacuum.
      Sabrina: You mean Halloween might actually be fun this year? Not that Grandpa's game of "Find my Teeth" isn't without its charms.

    • (After a river of candy corn bursts through the vents)
      Sabrina: Salem, nobody knows that this stuff is real!

    • Asher: Wow! The cat talks! Say Asher! Asher!
      Salem: Loser! Loser!

    • Salem: A couch who's allergic to cats? Finally, someone whose life is more pathetic than mine!
