MC MANN & TATE
INT. STEPHENS KITCHEN - DAY
It is Morning and SAMANTHA, in apron, is sitting at table
with TABITHA. There are eight apples on the table. Samantha
pushes five to Tabitha, keeping three.
Now, Tabitha, if you have five
apples... and you get three more
(gives her three apples)
..how many apples do you have?
DARRIN enters and stands by door, unnoticed. He is dressed
for work and carries attaché case and a large ad layout. He
watches silently and proudly.
Now think carefully, Tabitha... take
away two of the apples, and how many
Take away two apples?... that's easy,

That leaves six apples.
Sam, what's going on?
All right, Tabitha, bring back the

No. no... that's fine,

Samantha crosses to Darrin.
She's really ready for kindergarten.
I think she's ready for the Ed
Suddenly ENDORA POPS IN.
Good morning, Sweetheart.
Good morning, Durwood.
It was, wasn't it?
Mother, Darrin and I are having an
important discussion so if you don't
Of course! What could be more
important than Tabitha's education?
Fortunately, I've solved your problem.
She makes a grand gesture.
May I present Professor Poindexter
There is a PUFF OF SMOKE and the PROFESSOR POPS IN. He is
dressed tweedily British, gray hair, mustache.
Forget it, Endora! Tabitha is not
going to have a warlock for a teacher.
Why not? She's got a witch for a
Darrin starts to resist as the Professor crosses to Tabitha.
She stands up.
So here's my student, Tabitha. There's
a good girl, stand straight.
Phipps throws his shoulders back, then Tabitha does.
Professor, this is my daughter,
How'd you do?...
He holds his hand out to Darrin.
...you must be Durwood.
Phipps notices the apple in Darrin's hand.
Oh, an apple for the teacher. Good
form... for a mortal.
He takes the apple, rubs it on his sleeve. Darrin crooks his
finger at Samantha, indicating she follow him into the hall.

Because around here after logic
usually comes disaster.
Sweetheart, who could be more

I guess it can't hurt to try... but
only if you promise the Professor
will teach Tabitha in a perfectly
normal, perfectly mortal way.
I promise... witches' honor.
He reacts. She kisses him quickly.
I mean, right. Come on, let's lay
out the ground rules for the

Phipps, Durwood is a little eccentric.
CAMERA PULLS BACK to include Samantha and Darrin.
It's no matter. I'll be happy to
comply. Mr. Stephens, let me put it
this way... it's true I am a warlock.
But first I am an educator. I do not
teach witchcraft. I teach the arts...
The mortal way.
As you wish.
I think the patio would be suitable
for the classroom.
He starts to exit. Tabitha does exit with Darrin following.
(puts his hand up)
As long as we're laying down ground
rules, I've got one of my own. Parents
shall not be present. Especially
(picks up his layouts)
I'm due at the office anyway.
He starts to kiss Samantha as Phipps takes one of the layouts
and looks at it. It's a picture of a smiling cat kicking
over a bowl of milk while munching a tiny cupake. The caption
reads: "Don't cry over spilt milk... feed me Kitty Kakes
instead." Beside the cat is a box of Kitty Kakes and under
the box is a legend "Neat'n nourishing".
Is this a sample of your work?
Why, yes. That's a little campaign I

advertising campaign... Endora, normal

familiar phrase like "Don't cry over
Why don't you call those "Phrases"
what they are...? Cliches!
Mortal, verbal mediocrity.
Darrin starts to react. Samantha puts her hand on his arm.
If you'll excuse me, I'll get on
with Tabitha's lessons.
He exits with Tabitha.

phrases to catch the eye of the public

Goodbye Endora. I'm sorry I haven't
time to stay and chat but if you're
able to drop in tomorrow morning I
certainly hope not.
He gives Samantha a quick kiss and exits. Endora hisses after
Samantha, is it really true that if
Durwood could think up more of those
so-called... "Phrases" he would be
more successful doing whatever it is

Have a nice day, Mr. Stephens.
Suddenly he and the Elevator Boy FREEZE and Endora POPS IN
"Spirits north and spirits south,
Let my spell control your mouth. Let
Durwood find to his dismay, That all
his words are now cliche".
She makes another gesture and POPS OUT as Darrin and the
Elevator Boy UNFREEZE.
(as an afterthought)
But nothing comes easy. And the proof
of the pudding is in the tasting.
The trick is always to walk softly
and carry a big stick.
That's what they say.
(a little confused)
They sure do say that, don't they?
INT. MC MANN & TATE OUTER OFFICE - DAY
Darrin enters. BETTY is typing at her desk which is piled
high with papers.
Good morning, Betty. How's the girl?
Busy, Mr. Stephens. Mr. Tate wants
all these reports finished by ten.
When it rains, it pours, doesn't it?
It sure does.
But remember one thing, Betty, you
should thank your lucky stars because
idle hands are the devil's plaything
and a rolling stone gathers no moss.
(looks at him strangely)
I'll try to remember that Mr.
That's the old spirit.
Darrin walks briskly to his office.
INT. STEPHENS PATIO - DAY
Professor Phipps is reading to Tabitha from a book which is
largely printed "OLIVER TWIST". There is a blackboard in
And there, in the back streets of
London, Oliver met the Artful Dodger,
the young ringleader of a gang of
What did Artful look like?
Well, he was About this tall... and
skinny... with a smudge on his nose...
and he wore a tall silk hat.
Was he handsome?
I've got it... why don't I show you?
Phipps gestures and the ARTFUL DODGER POPS IN. He is right
out of Dickens, a ragamuffin wearing oversize cutaway coat,
vest, tattered hat, scarf, high shoes. He is about twelve
years old with cockney accent.
Tabitha I'd like you to meet the

Upon my word!... what a beautiful
As Tabitha and Phipps look o.s., the Dodger slips a silver
lighter into his coat pocket. At this moment, Samantha arrives
and takes it all in.

I promised I wouldn't teach
witchcraft... and I haven't. The
Dodger here is merely a part of my
I doubt if Darrin would see it that
way. Why don't we just return to the
pages of literature.
I'll return my teaching aid from
whence he came when I decide this
lesson is over! Is that clear?
Now just a moment, Professor. I want
it clearly understood...
Is that clear?
Oh, perfectly, Professor.
Samantha turns to the Dodger.
In the meantime, Mr. Dodger, would
you mind returning my lighter?
You know, the one in your pocket...
Dodger reacts startled, reaches into his pocket and brings
out the lighter, lit. He gingerly puts it down on the table.
Ow!... me 'and!
(passes her hand into
It isn't even warm. I just wanted to
teach you a lesson.

She's worse than the magistrate.

you to create a slogan for their

this room. I could have sworn you
I already have a campaign worked out
for the farm machinery. What's good
for the goose, doesn't necessarily
mean it'll be good for the gander.
Darrin, this gander wants slogans,
and if we don't come up with some
our goose is cooked.
We should put this in the think tank
What's the matter with you? You sound
like an encyclopedia of cliches.
You can't judge a book by its cover,
There you go again!
(trying to laugh it
Cliches are like popcorn. Once you
get started, you can't stop.
Pull yourself together, Darrin.
Multiple Industries makes everything
from safety pins to bull dozers. All
we need is a few good slogans and
Larry hands him a piece of paper.
Here's a list of all their products...

He exits. Larry stares after him bewildered.
OMIT SCENE 15
INT. STEPHENS ENTRANCE HALL - DAY
Darrin bursts in and slams door behind him.
Samantha is in living room, dusting.
Hi, Sweetheart... what's the matter?
What's the matter? I'll try to keep
a civil tongue in my mouth and at
the same time talk turkey... I smell
Darrin, why are you talking so funny?
Because someone put a spell on me!
And I'll bet dollars to donuts I
know who did it.
Endora breezes in from kitchen.
Did you put a spell on Darrin?
I cannot tell a lie... I did place a
friendly little spell on Durwood.
But I was just trying to be helpful.
A friendly spell. Boy, with friends
like you who needs enemies? There I
go again. Every other word that comes
out of my mouth is a cliche.
But I thought that was the idea, in
your noble profession. The more
cliches, the merrier.
That's the last straw. You tell her
to button her lip!
All right, Mother... your so-called
joke is over. Now remove the spell.
Professor Phipps enters, disturbed at the noise.
Would it be presumptuous of me to
request just a little silence during
Sorry, Professor, we'll try to be

One thing at a time Sweetheart. The

Very well. I'll take the spell off.
Hmm! Try to do someone a good turn.
Endora gestures and we hear a weird sound as Samantha returns,
Okay, Sweetheart... say something.
I'll say something. Who is that
English kid in there?...
(noticing his watch
...and where is my watch?!
I think your second question answered
your first question... he's the Artful
Dodger from Oliver Twist... one of
the Professor's audio-visual
techniques. Cute huh?
She smiles. He glares. She sours.
That settles it. I said no witchcraft,
and he used witchcraft. The Professor
Now, wait a minute, Durwood.
Endora, you've been a busy little
bee... now buzz off!
Endora SNAPS HER FINGERS and POPS OUT.
I hope mother's going to be a good
sport about this.
They both look around with some concern.
EXT. CHIMNEY OF STEPHENS HOUSE - DAY
Endora sits an top of chimney, scheming.
So, I'm a busy little bee, am I? All
right I can sting too! I said I'd
take off the spell, but I didn't say
I'd leave it off... and this time,
I'll add something to make it a lot

Ah, there goes my little pigeon.

moves off toward the car.
ANGLE ON ENDORA
INT. RESTAURANT - DAY
Its lush appearance, despite the cheap construction, is a
tribute to the genius of Bob Purcell. Darrin enters and moves
toward the HEAD WAITER.
Has Mr. Tate arrived?
Yes... he and another gentleman have
been here for a few minutes. I'll
take you to their table.
(looking at his watch)
It's one fifteen already. Time sure
At this, Darrin's WATCH FLOATS off his wrist and INTO the
air in front of him and the Waiter. He grabs it out of the
air and puts it back on. The Waiter stares unbelieving. Darrin
How did you do that?
Sorry, It's a family secret. Will
you tell Mr. Tate that Mr. Stephens
called to say he couldn't make it.
Darrin starts to leave.
There you are, Darrin.
Larry enters SHOT.
Come on, Summers is anxious to meet
He pulls him inside the restaurant.
ANGLE - LARRY'S TABLE
Larry and Darrin walk up to table. H.B. SUMMERS, a middle-
aged businessman rises as they arrive.
H.B. Summers, meet Darrin Stephens,
better known as "The Slogan King".
My pleasure Stephens... I'm a great
admirer of yours.
Thank you, Mr. Summers.
H.B. to my friends. Your my kind of
ad man, Stephens. Your campaigns are
clever... they hit the nail right on
Right, H.B. Darrin has the genius to
get through to the common man.
Now, Tate was telling me about your
He blows an imaginary trumpet, moving fingers.
"Blow your own horn". I think it's

Thanks H.B.... I wish I could see
eye to eye...
Darrin's eyes CROSS.
Larry reacts as Darrin hits his head with his hand and his
eyes come back to NORMAL.
Darrin looks around the room, puzzled.
Darrin, are you all right?
Sure, sure, I was just attempting to
point out that slogans can be
overdone. Now I have a campaign worked
out for your farm machinery division.
Forget it!! Now, I have a little
idea myself for our Bulldozer
Division. What do you think of this?
"Make molehills out of mountains."
Get it... it's kind of a twist.
Of course we get it, H.B., and it's
...knockout. Right Darrin?
Truthfully, no. It doesn't really
ring the bell.
At this we hear the loud ringing of bells. Darrin's eyes
widen in realization.
Speaking of bells. What was that?
Two bells and all's well. It's an
old custom here. That reminds me,
I've got to call home.
Do you have to do it now?
Yes. Just order me a club sandwich,
Larry, I'll be back quicker thin you

LARRY AND H.B.
That's very good.
Why did we say that?
I don't know. Maybe it's catching.

You're right, Sam. I've got to get a
grip on myself.
We hear the sound of the receiver falling on the other end
of the line, Samantha reacts with concern,
Darrin, are you all right?
INT. PAY PHONE - DAY
CLOSE SHOT - of receiver dangling as we hear:
We WIDEN SHOT and PAN UP to SEE Darrin struggling with the
"grip he has on himself". His hands are clutching, his upper
arms. He struggles for a moment, pulls one hand free, and
with that one, frees the other hand and picks up the receiver.
I'll tell you later. Just track down
your Mother, fast.
Larry arrives on SCENE.
(hangs up phone)
Darrin! You can't insult a man's
brainchild and then walk away. What's
I couldn't begin to tell you.
Well, get a grip an yourself.
I already tried that.
INT. LARRY'S TABLE - DAY
As Larry and Darrin enter SCENE and sit down.
Sorry for the interruption... now
back to the problem of slogans... I
devote a lot of my time keeping in
touch with the public. You might
say, keeping my ear to the ground.
At this moment we hear a weird, whining sound and Darrin's
HEAD is DRAWN to the floor until his EAR touches the GROUND.
He tries to get up, but he can't.
Another one of those clever
(sotto to Darrin)
Would you like to get up now, Darrin?
Darrin is straining to get up and after a beat we hear a
loud hollow popping sound and Darrin's EAR is RELEASED from
the floor. He laughs.
Gentlemen, I don't think I feel
well... I'd better go home.
Was it something I said?
Not at all, H.B. but I'd better shake
Darrin EXTENDS one LEG and SHAKES it violently. Larry and
H.B. stare at him peculiarly. Darrin RECOVERS.
So if you don't mind, I'll just bow
We hear a BOING and Darrin DOUBLES OVER AND BACKS OUT of the
How come all the creative ones have
a screw loose upstairs?
H.B., as of this moment, Stephens is
off your account.
Why? Stephens may be a ding-a-ling
but he's got the magic touch.
Exactly and that's why he'll be with
you as long as you want him.
H.B. gives him a peculiar look as we...

Darrin bursts into the door.
Sam!... Sam, where are you?
I'm in the nursery... be right down.
Did you reach your Mother? I don't
know whether I'm coming or going.
At this Darrin quickly WALKS FORWARD a few steps, puts down
his case, then, by REVERSING FILM picks up case and quickly
WALKS BACKWARDS out of door. (UNDERCRANK). At this point
Samantha walks downstairs holding empty feeding bottle, finds
Darrin enters through door again.
I thought I heard you come in.
You did. But your Mother's spell is
We hear a car stop. Samantha and Darrin peek out window.
Darrin indicates for Samantha to be quiet.

which is partially open and opens it all the way,
Tate, what are you doing?
Darrin and I have an understanding.
If he doesn't answer the doorbell
I'm supposed to crawl in the window.
H.B. stares at him oddly.
INT. STEPHENS LIVING ROOM - DAY
As Larry climbs through the window.
There you are, Darrin.
(turns to open window)
Come on in, H.B.
A rather befuddled H.B. climbs through the window.
Oh, hi Larry. I was just going to
open the door.
(a might miffed)
Yeah, quicker than I could say Jack
Robinson... Sam, thank goodness you're
here, Maybe you can talk some sense
into your husband.

steps in and TWITCHES. THE THREE MEN FREEZE.
Mother! Come here this instant!
Samantha stands waiting, frustrated.
END ACT TWO
INT. STEPHENS LIVING ROOM - DAY
It is a few moments later. Samantha stands waiting angrily
for Endora. The THREE MEN ARE STILL FROZEN in the b.g.
Samantha is shaking her fist skyward.
Mother!... Mother!! You'd better
materialize, and fast!
Endora POPS IN.
That isn't a very affectionate way
to summon one's mother.
After what you've done to Darrin,
what do you expect, "The Witches

Well... to coin a mortal phrase, it
looks like they bored each other
Very amusing, Mother... but just
undo your thing.
If you insist.
She waves her hand and Darrin and H.B. change back to NORMAL
CLOTHES. They remain FROZEN.
Now, I'm off to Oxford. I've entered
a new class that should help me
understand Durwood a little better.
Yes, it's a course in Anthropoid
Behavior... Ta, Ta.
Before Samantha can retort Endora waves her hand and POPS
OUT. Samantha twitches and Darrin UNFREEZES. He reacts to
the two men FROZEN.
Sam, what happened?
Never mind what happened. Let's worry
about what's going to happen.
Yeah. How am I going to explain those

You don't have to. Take off their
top-coats while I make a couple of
Sam, would you mind telling me what...
We've got a lot to do, I'll tell you
as we go.
Samantha heads for the bar. Darrin starts to take Larry's
top-coat off. Larry's arms are extended a little and he's
having difficulty getting the coat off.
Are you sure he won't break?
(as he's making the
Of course not. Just put the hats on

drinks as he gets
the coats off)
Samantha, couldn't you Just ZAP up a
couple of drinks?
Certainly not! I promised no
Darrin shakes his head in bewilderment, puts the coats over
the banister and the hats on the TV. Samantha puts the drinks
on the coffee table and helps Darrin escort the trance-like
figures over to the couch and sits them down. During this:
We'll just get them comfortable on
the couch and I'll bring them to,
and we'll just be chatting as if
everything were normal.
They have them on the couch now. Samantha crosses Larry's
legs as Darrin puts a drink in each one of their hands. During
What are we chatting about?
About how nice it was that they
dropped in and...
...and how pleased I am that H.B.
finally agreed to go for my campaign
instead of the slogans.
Samantha sits an the sofa with the two men and Darrin sits
in the chair in front of the fireplace. They're all settled
and Samantha ZAPS them into consciousness. They react a little
bewildered at their surroundings. Samantha is giggling.
Oh Mr. Summers, you have a delightful
sense of humor.
Larry looks over at Darrin wondering what happened. R.B.
looks toward Larry wondering what happened as he tries to
acknowledge Samantha with a smile at the same time. They
both react to the drinks in their hands.
So you really feel, H.B., that my
idea is a...
H.B. and Larry both sniff their drinks and look at each other.
I don't understand... the last I
remember I was standing over there

Larry. Are you trying to gaslight
Larry laughs hollowly.
Just another little joke.
He takes a sip of his drink. H.B. does the same.
But back to our discussion about my
idea for your farm machinery.
Personally, I love Darrin's idea.
Larry and H.B. both turn to look at Samantha in unison.
I don't count, of course. It's that
you like it so much, Mr. Summers,
Well Larry, how about you. You're
the only one we haven't heard from.
H.B. and Larry turn in unison to Darrin. Larry has a very
peculiar look on his face, half-smiling.
Well, if H.B. likes it I... I like
it, too. I mean...
(turns to H.B.)
...you do like it, don't you?
It's a... knockout... isn't it?
(a basket case)
(shakes his head
slightly and rises)
I'm sorry. I suddenly have a severe
headache. I think I'll go back to my
office and take a nap.
Samantha and Darrin and Larry rise. As they cross to the
Larry, why don't you stay here and
you and I can go over the idea in a
little more detail so that...

Larry you didn't see any baseball
uniforms, did you?
No, not me.
Larry finishes his drink.
Well I for the record... I didn't
actually see any baseball uniforms
either... in case it ever comes up.
Phipps and Dodger enter with Tabitha.
Lessons are over. We'll be leaving
for the day.
