Episode Summary

EDIT
When Sabrina's bitter math teacher Mr. Rothwell singles her out for unfair treatment, and her aunts are unable to make him see reason, the witchly trio decide it's time to teach him a few of their own spellbinding lessons. When he's hauled into traffic court, they replace the human judge with a magical substitute who's been hibernating in a deep freeze "to prevent media bias." Meanwhile, Salem panics when his ex-girlfriend decides to pay him a surprise visit -- especially since she has no idea that he has been turned into a cat.moreless

  • Sabrina's bitter math teacher...

    7.9
    When Sabrina asks a question to her math teacher and admits that she didn't understand one of the things he was teaching about, he decides to spring a test on the entire class and tells them to blame Sabrina for it. She goes home and brews up a spell to make his backside grow to ridiculous proportions, at which point Zelda comes in and tries to pursuade her. Hilda offers to go and talk to the teacher and when he humilitates her too, she comes back and joins Sabrina in cooking up a revenge potion. Zelda then comes onto the scene and decides to try her hand at sorting this out and comes back annoyed too. Pretty soon all three of them are gathered around a really large cauldron in full witches garb working on a really strong revenge potion. The following day, Sabrina goes into class and is amused to find that the teacher isn't in and a little disappointed when he does turn up having been delayed by being given a speeding ticket. When Zelda decides to bring a witches judge to the court, it begins to look as if the tables will be turned on the cruel and bitter math teacher.moreless

    • (Sabrina is on the witness stand testifying against her teacher)
      Sabrina: I will play blackjack, but I will not understand it!
      Judge: If you understood it, you wouldn't play it.

    • Salem: Zelda, you'll never guess who called--I'll give ya a hint "Shelley."
      Zelda: Shelley!

    • Mr. Rothwell: There were fifteen questions. The first five were worth forty points, the next five worth forty-five and the last five were worth fifteen. Sabrina got two of the biggies, three of the middies and one of the babies for a grand total of forty-five points. What percent of a hundred? Hilda: Oh! I-er... Fifteen questions. One hundred points. Thirty-two. I have no idea! Mr. Rothwell: Forty-five percent! Jeez, no wonder she failed. Hilda: Oh! But I didn't have a chance to study for this meeting.

    • Hilda: What's going on? I heard an explosion! Oh, you're just making soup.
      Sabrina: No, I'm stirring up a little revenge for Mr. Rothwell.
      Hilda: What happened?
      Sabrina: It was so humiliating. He made me take the test in front of the whole class.
      Hilda: Like some sort of zoo monkey?
      Sabrina: Yeah. (With sign language) Co-Co hate teacher man. (Back to acting normal) Anyway I know I flunked. So I'm giving him an expanding butt until I can find the perfect revenge spell.

    • Zelda: I see. Did you happen to mention that you're a cat now?
      Salem: Is it that noticeable?

    • Salem: But I'm better now, I like to snuggle, I have great night vision, and I'm super super clean.
