Episode Summary

Josh and Harvey are fighting for Sabrina's affection, so she feeds them magic friendship bread to bring peace between the two, but they become too close and ignore her. When a frustrated Sabrina undoes the spell, the fighting between the boys worsens. As a last resort, she forces them to compete for her in a magical obstacle course--then learns that it is a fight to the death. Harvey's unselfish concern for Josh prevents disaster, but Sabrina has used up her quota of magic on Harvey: Josh will think it is all a dream, but Harvey arrives at Sabrina's house demanding what will happen to their relationship now that he knows she's a witch.moreless

  • Sabrina puts Harvey and Josh to the test.

    This episode is a classic because it is when Harvey finally realizes that Sabrina is a witch and the end of this episode is a perfect cliff hanger when he comes and asks her about being a witch. The dream sequence between Harvey and Josh proves Harvey to be the better man, but it doesn't matter because he has finally learned the truth. The whole bit with Salem breaking the toaster plays perfectly into the story line and in a sense this episode is a really big changing point because the next season everything changes and it is the end of TGIF which was a favorite of mine during my childhood. At least it went out with a really good episode.moreless
  • end of the ABC sabrina

    This episode was alright if it was a regular episode of Sabrina I would have said oh well the end was good. But no this was supposidly the series finale of Sabrina which wouldve sucked thank god the other channel I thoink it was five or sixty nine that got sabrina did it wouldve sucked to see all these unanswered questions but I guess the series kind of sucks from season 7 till the last episode.moreless
  • Harvey discovers that Sabrina's a witch!?

    After months of feuding between Harvey & Josh, Sabrina decides to put the two to a test. Only halfway into the test does she learn that it will indeed end in the death of one of the contestants. Harvey's selfless act prevents disaster, but when they return home, Sabrina is given a shocking surprise.

    Having used so many spells on Harvey over the course of their relationship, Sabrina has actually caused Harvey to reach his magical quota. This means that this final spell is no longer accepted as another "weird dream". Instead, Harvey confronts Sabrina, and they are forced to deal with the consequences.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • At the end of the episode it is said that Harvey reached his spell quota with the friendship bread spell, meaning no spells after it would affect him, but he was affected by the ipecac spell.

    • Mr Kraft and Zelda broke up in the episode before this, The Four Faces of Sabrina.

    • As this episode ended, Zelda and Mr. Kraft (Martin Mull) were still together (there was no closure on his storyline); yet, starting with season 5, he was never mentioned again. Obviously, the "Sabrina" production company had no idea he would be fired.

    • At the end of the course after Sabrina has been rescued, she is standing by the referee and is completely clean,(after nearly sinking in quick sand) however when she arrives back at the Spellman house in the kitchen she is completely covered in mud.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Harvey: Sabrina, can we talk about the fact're a witch?

    • Harvey: Where are we?
      Sabrina: Uh, this is just some weird dream.
      Harvey: ...Eleanor Roosevelt's not going to appear and start hitting me with a leg of lamb, is she?
      Sabrina: No, it's a different weird dream.

    • Salem: I know I'm in the dog house but this is ridiculous. Hello! I don't think I deserve this kind of treatment! It was just a car! And we really don't like that man! I said I was sorry! Well if I didn't, I meant to! (he hears a dog howling in the distance) Oh there's no lock on this door. In fact there's no door! And I'm out of pepper-spray! (he begins to cry) You'll feel bad when I'm dead!

    • Sabrina: ...And the worst part, other than the pound of quicksand in my underwear, is that I still don't know what to do about Harvey and Josh.
      Hilda: I'll look it up, but I'm almost certain there's a tribe in New Guinea where women can have multiple husbands.
      Zelda: Oh honey, I'm sorry you have such a dilemma to face. I wish we could comfort you with your graduation present.
      Salem: I bet now you're kicking yourself for not getting her that 'Mr. Microphone'! (Receives a dirty look from Zelda)
      Hilda: The toaster's fixed.
      Salem: Now I can toast my ooey gooey sticky-bun. (receives another dirty look) Me no funny?

    • (After Salem breaks their presents for Sabrina)
      Zelda: Salem!
      Salem: Oopsie!
      Hilda: You did that on purpose!
      Salem: I think the "Oopsie" implies that I didn't.
      Hilda: Oh I see your vile little plan. You break our gifts in the childish hopes that we will then buy Sabrina a 'Mr. Microphone'
      Zelda: Yeah, it's so obvious! (To Hilda) A Mr. what?
      Salem: I have no such plan... Did it work?
      Hilda: Oh you are in for it buster. Not only did you break irreplaceable items but you've now freed the man in the mirror.
      Mirror Man: (Looking around) This decor is really the fairest of them all... if you're talking county fairs.

    • Sabrina: You know, Harvey's being so unreasonable. I don't know why he doesn't want me hanging out with Josh? He must not trust me.
      Salem: That is so sad. I think there's only one thing you can do. Open another present! (After she picks up a present) Is it a 'Mr. Microphone'? Is it a 'Mr. Microphone'?
      Sabrina: (Sarcastically) No, it's luggage.

    • Sabrina: Okay, the towels are changed, the soap dispensers are filled and the urinal cakes are replaced.
      Josh: This is how I keep people from knowing I like you best.
      Sabrina: Including me.
      Josh: (To Harvey when he walks in with Brad) Well Skippy, come to spend some of that hard earned paper route money?
      Harvey: Tough talk for a college junior who still attends high school proms.

  • NOTES (6)

    • Starting with this episode, Harvey becomes the only mortal besides Sabrina's mom to know that Sabrina is a witch.

    • Not only did Sabrina leave ABC after this episode, but ABC (for the time being) stopped TGIF all together...all other shows were cancelled and Fridays were no longer named TGIF.

    • The move to the WB had a profound impact on the future of "Sabrina." While on ABC, the show had been mainly geared towards preteens. The WB, however, wanted the show to have a more mature audience. To accomplish this, the WB fired nearly all of the "Sabrina" writers, and a new writing staff was assembled. Moreover, the WB also announced a few casting changes for the show as Martin Mull, China Shavers, and Nate Richert (for the time being) were let go.

    • After this episode, "Sabrina" moved from ABC to the WB. It jumped networks due to purely money matters: ABC was more than willing to renew the show for a 5th season, but it was not willing to pay the reported $1.5 million that the "Sabrina" production company wanted. The WB then grabbed "Sabrina." The WB paid a mere $675,000 per episode, but agreed to renew the show for two years (44 episodes.)

    • This is the last appearance of Mr. Kraft and Brad.

    • This was considered ABC's Series Finale since it was the last episode aired on ABC.
