    Sabrina is helps 3 people with her magic to win a bet with Salem.At the same time Jenny is running for class president againest Libby. Mr.Pool is having money issues well that's not new but it's important for where I'm getting to.Harvey's on the bench in the all his football games.So Sabrina decides to help themand that's when the words Terrible Things start to appear in every chat she has with her Aunt's and Salem.If you didn't notice Milo Vetimigla stars in this episode as a Letterman who decides to vote with his stomach nstead of his head but then again I think everyone here would prefer pizza for lunch over smaller class sizes.So remember these aren't the only terrible things as Hilda found out there is also some terrible pizza !moreless

    Salem acuses Sabrina of being selfish and she resolves to use her powers to do three good things. Both Salem and her aunts warn her of the terrible consequences of interfering with mortals lives, but she ignores them. First up, she arranges for Jenny to win the election for class president. Next she causes a minor accident to happen to Harvey's competition for a place in the football team so that he gets selected. Finally, when Mr Pool complains about being poor, she gives him the secret of changing lead into gold. Pretty soon however, the gifts turn sour - Jenny discovers that she can't make a real difference, Harvey gets injured in the football game, and Mr. Pool becomes more obnocious. Then Sabrina gets summoned before the witches council...moreless

    7.5
    not so good, he intentions were good but really she had to hurt someone to help the people she knew(ok so not every one) and helping people doesnt just mean your friends! and thats about all i remember from the episode which is why i rated so low cuz if you cant remember it then it wasent that good.

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

  • QUOTES (8)

    • (after taking a bite of the pizza she zapped in)
      Hilda: This is terrible pizza!

    • (Libby is feeding Harvey)
      Harvey: Ow!
      Libby: Oh, you poor thing. It even hurts to chew...
      Harvey: No, it's just hot!

    • (After Sabrina and her aunts arrive in Drell's office)
      Drell: Sabrina, why don't we begin by you explaining to us why we're here?
      Sabrina: I don't know.
      Drell: Stop me if something sounds familiar. Athletic injury, fixed election, altered immutable laws of physics.
      Sabrina: Oh that.
      Zelda: Sabrina?!
      Hilda: You didn't?!
      Sabrina: I was just trying to help people.
      Drell: Help is a four letter word like "Dumb" and "Move" Am I right?
      Sabrina: Well first all the people I helped were happy but now only one is and he's happy enough for all three of them though. So...
      Drell: (Interrupting) Now I should explain to you that when I say "Am I right?" IT'S A RHETORICAL QUESTION! Because I'm always right.

    • Sabrina: Salem, you're back. How was jail?
      Salem: Not bad, there's a guy in solitary convinced Alan Derchowitze appeared to him as a talking cat. I told him I'd call the governor and plead his innocence.
      Sabrina: See? I told you it was nice to help people.
      Salem: Are you kidding? I'm not calling.

    • Jenny: I don't get it, why doesn't anybody want to support the outsider party?
      Sabrina: Maybe because you named it after their biggest fear?

    • Sabrina: I do nice things all the time.
      Salem: Really? Since you got your magical powers all I've seen you do is change your clothes and make brussel sprouts disappear.

    • Salem: As if being a cat for a hundred years wasn't enough, Zelda had to put me in a pets for prisoners program.
      Zelda: I gave you a choice, you could have done highway cleanup.
      Salem: Yeah, cats do real well on highways.

    • Sabrina (about Hilda's violin student): I see Jeffrey's here.
      Hilda: Yes, and Mozart started spinning in his grave about ten minutes ago.
      Zelda: Hilda, let the poor man rest in peace!

  • NOTES (1)

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • When the class Presidential results are announced and Jenny is declared the winner, the way she holds up the newspaper declaring Libby the winner is an allusion to when Harry S. Truman held up a newspaper after his victory in the 1948 Presidental election over Thomas E. Dewey. The newspaper's prematurely-written headline was "Dewey Defeats Truman."

    • Football Announcer: Oh, the humanity!

      The same thing was said by a radio announcer when the Hindenburg blimp caught fire and crashed.
