  • Not the best Sabrina episode.

    I am a Sabrina fan but this was not a very good episode.

    Sabrina was hardly in it. The main focus was Sabrina's cousin Amanda, who is a witch delinquent.

    Sabrina is trying to get her admitted to Witching Hall a place for young witches like Amanda.

    After pulling many stunts Amanda still doesn't get in and begins to get upset. The people at the school are so moves by her emotion that they decide to let her in to the school.

      James: (to Sabrina about Amanda) How soon can you have her here?
      Sabrina: Sooner than you think.

      Amanda: Just so you know, I'm not sharing a room with anybody.

    • James: It was the Summer of Sixty-Nine. Fourteen sixty-nine and Botticelli was having one of his backyard barbeques. Suddenly I looked up and saw a vision due west of the suckling pig. She was beautiful, she was brilliant and for a brief moment in time, she was mine.
      Amanda: What happened?
      James: Ah she left me for that stud-muffin Gutenberg. Ah big deal, so the guy printed the Bible, it's not like he wrote the blasted thing. (looking up to heaven) Sorry.

    • James: Well, Miss Wiccan, you certainly are quite bold for a guest.
      Amanda: I'm just getting warmed up.
      James: Listen to me, dearie, I've been a witch since the Spanish Inquisition and if Torquemada didn't scare me, you certainly don't.

    • James: (to Amanda) Let's see, you've been expelled from twelve different schools. You've forced fourteen teachers into early retirement. One into a straitjacket.

    • Amanda: Yeah, I wonder what kind of slobbering animal teaches history?
      James: That would be me. James Hexton, headmaster. In a few weeks I should have the slobbering under control.

      Hilda: The James Hexton?! Who's James Hexton?

    • Zelda: Wait Sabrina! (reading) Oh poor Amanda's worse than ever.
      Salem: Can a person be worse than pure evil?

    • Sabrina: [to Zelda] Great! I'm on the virge of getting a 9-11 Turbo, and you play the apocalypse card.
