    what a glorious and heart-stroking episode of STTW.



    Whilst in a relationship crisis between Harvey and Dashell, Sabrina asks her mom for help but Quizmaster intervenes and reminds her the rule of her mum turning into a ball of wax if any contact is made. Quizmaster then forces her to choice - mom or magic? Sabrina makes the ultimate decision - to see her mum after all these years. after an emotional reunion, Sabrina returns to home to be informed this was a test and that her heart is in the right place. Hilda and Zelda also realise Vesta is the favourite out of them (when they attempt to visit mother)



    i love this episode - Sabrina makes the right choice even though she loves a being a witch she loves her mum more. and loved the revelation its only a test - very funny!!!moreless

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Sabrina: I still have to choose between Harvey and Dash.
      Sabrina's Mom: You know what I'd do? I would make a list of pros and cons for each guy, right? Then I would throw it away and follow my heart.

    • Mrs. Saberhagen: I'm gonna make my son a nice big fish dinner.
      Salem: With fish?

    • Harvey: Well, we said we weren't gonna be exclusive...
      Dashiell: And we never talked about only seeing each other...
      Sabrina: Great. This is good, this is very good.
      Harvey & Dashiell: Choose!

    • Mrs. Saberhagen: Salem? What on Earth happened?
      Salem: I tried to take over the world... The Witches Council sentenced me to a hundred years as a cat. I eat off the floor and sleep by the dryer. Go ahead, let me have it.
      Mrs. Saberhagen: Salem Saberhagen, you always disappoint me. You're selfish and irresponsible. You're a terrible person! But if you aren't the cutest little kitty I have ever seen in my entire life...

    • Hilda: We're her legal guardians. We're morally obligated to snoop!

    • Quizmaster: How was your trip to Peru? I meant to ask you to pick me up an Alpaca sweater.
      Sabrina: What are you doing here? I don't need a Quizmaster anymore.
      Hilda: Soap is what she needs, and a wire brush.
      Quizmaster: I know you're gonna get mad when you hear this, but this whole thing was a test.
      Sabrina: WHAT?!
      Quizmaster (Glancing at a set of knives sitting on the counter): Maybe I should have broke the news away from all these sharp objects.
      Sabrina: What kind of test? What are you talking about? (to her aunts) Why is he always doing this to me? (She tries to kick her Quizmaster) Oh, my clothes are too encrusted with dirt. (to her aunts) Someone please kick him!

    • Dashiell: I left my clone back in my high school. Just hope I can read his history notes this time. Hey, do you wanna become invisible and go give the Queen a wedgie?

    • Hilda: Well then how come on your eighth birthday you got an entire observatory and I got corrective shoes?
      Zelda: Because I like stars and you have those funny toes.
