      Salem: Well, I... I... I... I slept in a pile of laundry I wasn't familiar with...

      Mrs. Quick: Well maybe you should see the nurse, I was gonna have her check out my hives.
      Sabrina: I don't see any hives.

      Zelda: Or should I arrange them by head size?

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • When Zelda is in witch-snap she says "Okay skipper, you and Gilligan forage for berries, while I prepare a coconut soufflè," and, "Glad you figured that out, professor. Maybe you can think of a way to fix the hole in the boat." These lines refer to the TV show Gilligan's Island (1964).

    • Libby: I'll be in the front row, just like I was for Titanic.

      Titanic is a 1997 romance film directed, written, produced and edited by James Cameron about the sinking of the RMS Titanic. It features Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet as Jack Dawson and Rose DeWitt Bukater, two members of different social classes who fall in love aboard the ill-fated 1912 maiden voyage of the ship. The main characters and the central love story are fictional, but some supporting characters (such as members of the ship's crew) are based on real historical figures.

    • Harvey: Who do you think I am? Evel Knievel?

      Robert Craig "Evel" Knievel was an American motorcycle daredevil, an entertainer famous in the United States and elsewhere between the late 1960s and early 1980s.
