Episode Recap

Upset that Mr. Kraft has given her detention, Sabrina asks her Aunt Hilda to go on a date with him. However, Hilda refuses, so Sabrina casts a spell on her, turning her into a dummy. Whatever Sabrina says, the dummy mimics, so she must follow the pair on their date.

But when Valerie shows up at the same restaurant that Hilda and Mr. Kraft are having their date, Sabrina forgets her role as the dummy master and begins to have a conversation with Valerie, resulting in Hilda saying some unusual things. However, the plan doesn't completely fall apart until Mr. Kraft's kiss breaks the spell and Hilda runs out.

In trouble, Hilda takes Sabrina to Zelda, who is serving Witches Council duty, and she must wrestle conscience (literally). Sabrina claims that her spell was totally selfless, as she only wanted to spare Harvey from Mr. Kraft's wrath. Zelda informs Sabrina that if she is telling the truth - that she turned Hilda into a dummy for only selfless reasons - she will be able to stay inside the Ring of Truth. When a sumo wrestler shows up as Sabrina's conscience, she runs out of the ring, and apologizes.

As the episode concludes, Mr. Kraft informs Sabrina that her entire family is strange, setting the stage for his future suspicions of the Spellman clan.
