Episode complete credited cast:
Mr. Caldwell (as Charlie Ruggles)


Darrin is having a mental block coming up with a campaign for one of his oldest and most lucrative clients, Caldwell Soups. He needs to come up with something that will impress Mr. Caldwell, since the soup business is a highly competitive one, and Caldwell has been losing market share. Darrin's ideas he believes are almost what he wants, but he realizes something is missing with each creative. When Samantha looks at his ideas, she has a brilliant fix for each. Darrin is initially grateful for her help, until he comes to the belief that her ideas were all a result of witchcraft. Despite her assertion that her ideas were all out of her own imagination and not witchcraft, Darrin doesn't believe her and refuses to use any of her ideas. But if he doesn't, he risks losing the account. But worse, he risks losing Samantha for not believing her. But one thing may show Darrin for certain if Samantha is telling the truth about those creative ideas. Written by Huggo

Samantha: What are you doing up so early?
Endora: I'm not up early. I'm up late. One party after another. I haven't been to bed yet. And neither have you, apparently. Well, it's typical, typical.
Samantha: Of what?
Endora: Of the neglected housewife... drinking coffee, eaten alive by suspicion... her husband out to the wee small hours of morning, doing... whatever it is he's doing.
Samantha: Darrin's working in the study.
Endora: You're ...
