Episode Summary

While Sabrina and Dreama talk about the crush Sabrina has on Josh, Sabrina finds herself in a sticky situation of having the opportunity to help Josh with his English homework on the same night of Harvey's football game. As a result, Sabrina asks Dreama if she could go to Harvey's game and page her if he gets put in the game. However, after one too many false alarm pages by Dreama, Sabrina turns off her pager, leaving her friend in the tight spot of having to cover for her when Harvey starts looking for her in the stands. When Harvey learns that Sabrina had to rush home, he goes right over to the Spellman's and gets an unpleasant surprise. Meanwhile, Hilda and Zelda find themselves so overwhelmed by all the work at the Clock Shop that they neglect their chores around the house. As a result, they are forced to hire their old friends the pirates as maids.moreless

  • It's a great episode!

    Dreama and Sabrina stand outside the coffee shop talking about Sabrina's crush on Josh. It is this crush that compels Sabrina to help Josh studying instead of watching a football game in which Harvey might play. Sabrina asks Dreama to page her if Harvey enters to play the game, but after many false alarms, Sabrina turns her pager off. It is in that exact moment that Harvey is asked to play and scores a victory for Westbridge. He doesn't see Sabrina in the benches, so he asks Dreama where she is, as Dreama tells him that she is sick and went home. Harvey goes looking for Sabrina and finds her kissing Josh...moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • When Sabrina, Harvey and Dreama are in a class, you can see Melissa Joan Hart's neck tattoo covered.

    • When Sabrina and Harvey enter the coffee shop, they start drinking cups that are just sitting around, they don't even order.

    • Regarding the Witch Pager ordeal- wouldn't it be smarter of Sabrina to just say that she has a pager/cellphone on vibrate, and step away to take the call?

    • If Sabrina needed to be in two places at once, why didn't she create a clone of herself like she did in "Halloween Story"? She could have programmed it to say, "Wow, it sure is cold out here.", "Go, Westbridge!", and "Yay, Harvey!" and nobody would have been the wiser.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Zelda: I can't wait for our new housekeeper to get here...
      Hilda: I know. I'm exhausted watching you clean so much...

    • Sabrina (to Dreama): Josh isn't even that nice...
      (Josh comes near them)
      Josh: Hi guys. Sabrina, here's your capuccino, just the way you like it. And don't worry about the dishes, I already did them.
      (he leaves)
      Sabrina: See? What a creep!

    • Dreama: Hey, do you still have a crush on Josh?
      Sabrina: Oh, please... When was the last time I brought that up?
      Dreama: Yesterday...
      Sabrina: What, are you wearing a wire for the Feds?

    • Josh: I can't believe the library is closed for painting. I'm sorry, certain places should always be open. Like hospitals. And Denny's.

    • (After finishing their study session)
      Sabrina: I'd say we're done here.
      Josh: Oh yes, now is there anything else I should know about Great Expectations?
      Sabrina: Only that I have them and am consequently always disappointed.

    • Sabrina: Hey, did you see me waving at you? You know, in this temperature it's hard to get any lateral movement but I got a few good up and down motions going.
      Harvey: I'm sorry, I get so into the game that I don't notice anything around me. Imagine if I were actually playing...
      Sabrina: Well, do you wanna go and get some coffee and warm up?
      Harvey: Oh, I already told Brad and the others I'd meet them at The Slicery, but since you sat through this whole game for me, I'm gonna do something I don't wanna do for you. Let's go get coffee.
      Sabrina You romantic you.

    • Salem: Hi-ya!
      Sabrina: Let me guess, they're doing a chorus line and you're Catsy?
      Salem: I, Salem, have taken up Tae-Bo. Instead of conquering the world I'm just gonna kick butt.
      Sabrina: You can't learn Tae-Bo. You have no body weight or leg extension, not to mention, will or courage.
      Salem: Perfect, I will use that as my daily affirmation.

  • NOTES (1)


    • Josh says the folk singer he always talks about is playing at the coffee shop and Sabrina asks if it's Bob Dylan. It's actually "the singer no one ever heard of," but he does have some things in common with folk legend Bob Dylan. They both have wild curly hair and play harmonica and acoustic guitar.

    • "Prelude to a Kiss" is also the name of a Broadway musical.
