  • Grown up baby!

    When Sabrina is disappointed with a pair of rollerblades she made by magic, she is pursuaded to look for a job. She soon finds one babysitting job and even turns it to her advantage when she agrees to meet up with Harvey for a study date. Unfortunately this apparently agreeable situation doesn't last for long when she accidentally turns the little baby into an adult with a spell she doesn't even realise she casted. She then has to seek help without anyone else realising the baby problem. Meanwhile, her aunts are attending parents' day at Sabrina's school and eyeing Mr. Pool. Sabrina gets introduced to another advantage of witchcraft when her aunts summon up Randy Travis to help them finish a jigsaw puzzle, so she conjures up TV hunk Eddie Cibrian.moreless

    this was a ok episode, not much happened, well zelda has a crush on mr pool which is so cute! and funny! the repeating things three times and they happen is a little stupid, but it does make things more interesting, like when they made that one singer show up. sabrina changing the game was so funny! it made me laugh, expecally harveys reaction! the baby part was stupid and boring but every thing else made up for that, so it was a ok episode.moreless
  • Sabrina casts a spell gone awry on the young boy she\'d been babysitting causing the boy to become an adult.

    Granted, the show was just taking off, but this episode is truly cringe-worthy. The episode in question does serve it\'s purpose though, by providing the rule that witches cannot conjure up brand names, examples a & b: Sabrina conjures up a Butter Thumb and Pipsi instead of Butter Finger and Pepsi. It\'s not Sabrina, nor is it any of the central characters that flaw this episode, it\'s the way Rudy is portrayed. I realize the character is still a baby, making him a curious adult, but the actions of the adult Rudy are so akward and unfunny. I love the show, but I can\'t stand this episode. I alone found this episode unfunny, so I\'m speaking soley for myself, but I wouldn\'t give this episode a second look. Care to agree?moreless

    • Mr. Pool: You have the test, you may commence failing.
      Harvey: Mitosis is...? Mitosis is...?
      Mr. Pool: Great game, huh Harvey?
      Harvey: Yeah, wasn't it freaky?
      Mr. Pool: Freaky? You want freaky? Randy Travis came to parents' night. Have you met Sabrina's father? He's pretty freaky too. (After Harvey says no) Get back to your test then.
      Harvey: Mitosis is...? Mitosis is...?

    • (When Sabrina and Salem go into the kitchen and see the baby she's watching)
      Sabrina: Okay, now what do I do about this?
      Salem: Dear lord! You picked up a guy at the bus station!
      Sabrina: No, it's the baby I'm baby-sitting for. He's fourteen months old, something happened to him.
      Salem: Do I smell teen witchery?
      Sabrina: Salem you've gotta help me. We've gotta change him back before his parents come home and prosecute.
      Salem: What d'you want me to do? I'm a cat, go talk to your aunts.
      Sabrina: They're at my school, I can't bring him there. Can you watch him?
      Salem: I suppose.
      Sabrina: Thanks, I owe you one.
      Rudy: (When Sabrina puts Salem on the table) Horsey! Ride Horsey!
      Salem: Get him off me! Get him off of me!

    • Sabrina: Salem, what are you doing?
      Salem: Er nothing.
      Sabrina: It looks like you're playing with a ball of yarn.
      Salem: I have urges, Sabrina.
      Sabrina: Look, can we deal with your issues later, I've got a bigger problem.

    • Mr. Pool: Welcome parents, I'm Mr. Pool. You may look at me, a man in his prime, and wonder why is he teaching high school biology. Well it's because I believe that science is the foundation upon which we build our future. That and I tanked my MCAT's.

    • Sabrina: I've found all kinds of great stuff. It's er, not brand name but I'm sure it tastes fine.
      (She hands over a selection of candies and puts some cans of soda on the coffee table.)
      Harvey: (Reading the wrappers) 'Schnickers'? 'N and N's'? 'Butterthumb'? Where do these people shop?
      Sabrina: I don't know but if you're thirsty there's 'Popsi'
      Harvey: Do they have 'You-hoo'?
      Sabrina: No, but they have 'Hey, over here'
      Harvey: I think I'll just have a diet Popsi.

    • Mr. Pool: All right, er since we've covered so much material today I'm going to move the test up to tomorrow. Have fun studying.
      Harvey: But Mr. Pool, tonight's game four of the World Series!
      Mr. Pool: No, really? Well since I'll be stuck here hosting parents' night I guess we'll all be missing the series together. Vindictive? Perhaps but it's what gets me through the day.

    • Hilda: I need a piece of sky with a smidge of smoke and a slightly bulbous doohickey.
      Zelda: Here you go.
      (She hands the piece to Hilda and she fits it in the puzzle.)
      Hilda: You know it's funny but when you live a thousand years, jigsaw puzzles don't seem like such a waste of time.

  • NOTES (1)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • When Sabrina accidentally turns Rudy into an adult, she mentions a radioactive spider as something to blame it on. This is how Spiderman acquired his powers.
