Episode Summary

When Zelda becomes depressed after breaking up with her boyfriend, Sabrina mixes old fashioned witchcraft with modern technology to help her mend a long time broken heart. While Sabrina's spell seems successful at first, she quickly learns that her spell changed the Spellman's history, for the worst.moreless

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • The Logan's Run Man Out Of Time could have been used as a teaching tool for Sabrina before she casted this spell.

    This episode is a redo of the Logan's Run episode Man Out Of Time. If Sabrina had watched this, she would have considered the consequences or her actions and possible thought twice about going back and making her aunt accept Gabriel's proposal. She should be lucky that she was able to correct it. I hope that one day a cable network shows them back to back, as well as other similar stories between the two shows. My guess is that most people who have watched this show were not around when Logan's Run was in production. As Bill Clinton said "You can't change the past, you can only learn from it."moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • In this episode, Hilda tells Sabrina that Zelda always makes a giant buffet meal by cooking constantly following a breakup with her boyfriend, but she didn't do any of that in any of her breakups in past episodes, including the many times she kept breaking up with Willard Kraft over the past three seasons she dated him.

    • NITPICK: why would in this alternate time line Sabrina's parents send her to live with Hilda when she is clearly not responsible?

    • In this episode, Zelda says that she has never been married, but in "The Great Mistake" we see that she had.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • (Arriving at the Spellman home)
      Sabrina: Oh, y'know, I just came over to say hi and grab a couple o' things from my old room. Hey, where's the piano?
      Zelda: Sabrina, are you all right?
      Sabrina: Yeah, I'm fine.
      Zelda: Really? Because we've never had a piano and you don't have a room here, old or otherwise.
      Sabrina: (Under her breath) Okay, this is house number two I've never lived in.
      Gabriel: Sabrina, always a delight to see you in our home.
      Sabrina: Well something worked out right... You are married, right?
      Gabriel: Of course. We've been married for years.
      Sabrina: Ha! No need to thank me.
      Gabriel: Why would we?
      Zelda: Something's definitely wrong with her. She also thinks she used to live here.
      Sabrina: Oh, this is what happens when you eat a whole can of frosting for breakfast. Ha-ha-ha-ha! So, refresh my memory, which isn't as good as it used to be, where would I find aunt Hilda?
      Zelda: Sabrina, now you're really scaring me dear. You live with Hilda and Salem.
      Gabriel: God, I hate that smug potty-mouth...and I'm not crazy about the cat either.

    • (About the recipes Zelda uses after her break-ups)
      Hilda: Unfortunately, she's had the same break-up menu for the last four hundred years.
      Salem: And the more upset she is, the bigger the spread.
      Sabrina: She seems pretty upbeat, maybe she's not as upset as you think.
      Zelda: Dinner is served. (Opens the door to the dining room)
      Sabrina: Okay, maybe she is upset.
      Salem: (Pleased at the amount of food on the table) And I need to pull up my big jeans!

    • Sabrina: Aunt Hilda, what's going on? I came over as soon as I got your message.
      Hilda: It's Zelda, she and Professor Carlin broke up... for good this time... at least that's what it sounded like through the keyhole.
