  • Trivia

    • 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

    • 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!
