Against Darrin's wishes, Samantha accompanies him to the lecture of his latest client, Osgood Rightmire, who is renowned as the greatest authority of witches. Simply, he doesn't believe they exist. Samantha, on the other hand, believes he is the biggest peddler of anti-witch lies. During the lecture, Samantha can't further help but use a little witchcraft against him after one too many slur against witches. In turn, he recites an incantation which he states will make any witch within his vicinity disappear. It works as he makes Samantha disappear. Luckily, her disappearance is only temporary, but unluckily her disappearance happens again and again against her will. Not paying attention, neither Darrin or Samantha can remember the incantation, so Endora doesn't know how to solve the problem. They have to get Rightmire to say the incantation again for the problem to be solved, which he refuses to do, but they also have to figure out how he can perform witchcraft if he isn't a warlock. ...

Very Funny Episode!
30 July 2014 | by See all my reviews

This is one of those episodes of Bewitched that is funny. The sad part, or maybe great depending on how you look at it, is that it is so funny because of Bernard Fox the actor.

It is filled with tons of funny scenes, and lines. Fox's reactions to things really makes me want to laugh so hard I'll fall over.

It is an episode that has many special effect mistakes, which the DVD comments on in the special features, but the story itself makes up for those noticeable mistakes.

I love any episode that features Fox, he is just an amazing actor and he really steals the screen when he is on it.
