Samantha has embarked on painting as a hobby, and plans on entering her still life painting into a charity art exhibit and competition. Endora will not allow Samantha to sully the family name by publicly displaying anything that is less than a masterpiece. Seeing that Samantha's own creation doesn't live up to that standard, Endora decides to exchange Samantha's painting temporarily until midnight for that of renowned French artist Henri Monchet. Samantha learns what her mother has done when her painting is revealed as the winning entry in the competition, the painting which will be auctioned off to the highest bidder. A further problem arises when perfumer Mr. Cunningham, a client of Darrin's, wants the painting, especially as he sees himself as an art connoisseur. Darrin and Samantha have to try and get him not to bid on the painting while they purchase it themselves. If they can't do so, they have to find a way to get the painting from him before the painting magically disappears ... Written by Huggo

Watch For the Tabitha Ad-Lib, and the Montgomery-Moorehead Save
7 October 2008 | by See all my reviews

Fairly typical episode with Endora putting one of a famous artist's pictures in an auction with Samantha's signature on it.

Fairly typical results.

But watch for an interesting exchange with young Erin Murphy, who was apparently a little keyed up as she and Elizabeth Montgomery enter the front door after an outing.

We first hear Montgomery have to control Tabitha from taking off somewhere, perhaps upstairs or something.

Then Endora pops in. The two women begin the conversation about the painting.

Suddenly, Tabitha bolts for the kitchen, with Montgomery right behind her.

Elizabeth catches Tabitha in the doorway, neither female getting out of the camera's shot, then she brings her back into the living room.

Endora was completely removed from the shot, but both women manage to carry on with the conversation, completely oblivious of the typical child behavior of young Tabitha.

Absolute professionalism.
