  • Quotes

    • Sabrina: Aunt Hilda, you don't stand a chance. Robert Russell has eighty-four percent of the vote, and I'm guessing no one's going to go for your campaign slogan. He dissed me, now let's diss him back.
      Salem: (Entering the room) Here's something that'll sway voters. Robert Russell is an underhanded slime ball!
      Hilda: I knew it!
      Zelda: Salem, you do not go around making accusations unless you have something to back them up?
      Salem: Which is why I've got something to back it up. Per Hildie's prodding, I went out looking for dirt, and once I finished rolling around in it, I observed Russell with some very shady characters.
      Hilda: Oh! Shady characters. Sabrina, you wanted to write a story, it's been handed to you on a silver platter.
      Sabrina: I can see the headline now: Talking cat sees shady characters. Aunt Hilda, there is no story.

    • Josh: Well according to this pole, Russell has eighty-four percent of the vote. It's no wonder the other candidates dropped out of the race.
      Sabrina: I'm not surprised. I mean, after you see him in person you realize why everyone thinks he's so hot. (On Josh's look) I mean, politically astute... Objectively speaking, of course.
      Josh: Of course. So do you really think Mike'll let you right a story about the campaign?
      Sabrina: (As Mike walks up behind her) He should! Nobody knows more about Russell than I do. I mean, I know where he stands on tax rebates, domestic partner benefits... even breakfast, just juice and coffee. I guess that's how he stays so...
      Josh: (Interrupting) Politically astute?
      Mike: Y'know before you start smearing his bagel, you might wanna check out this latest candidate to join the race. I think you might know even more about this one. (Holds up a pamphlet saying 'Vote Hilda Spellman')
      Sabrina: Nope! Don't know her.
      Mike: Isn't your last name Spellman?
      Sabrina: Only until I go to the courthouse and get it changed.
      Josh: Sabrina, why is your aunt running for political office?
      Sabrina: It's got to be a joke, she doesn't know anything about politics!
      Josh: She didn't know anything about coffee, it didn't stop her buying a coffee house.
      Mike: And this woman's running for city council?
      Sabrina: Not as long as there's breath in my body. The city must be saved! (On their looks) Gotta go.

    • Mr. Russell: I thank you. I thank you for coming out, everybody. Err, It's especially gratifying to have a rally in a neighborhood where I grew up. Of course, that was before it started to become gentrified with exorbitantly high rents, but we haven't lost the battle yet. If I'm elected, I promise to fight for this district and protect our citizens from senseless price gouging.
      Hilda: (to Sabrina) I love this guy.
      Mr. Russell: Why should you have to pay four-fifty for a cup of coffee?
      Hilda: (to Sabrina) I hate this guy. (Uses her magic to make Robert Russell spill his coffee) Sabrina, there's your story. Robert Russell has a drinking problem.
      Sabrina: (Seeing how many women are helping clean up his shirt) Well, it doesn't seem to be hurting his popularity.
