darrin? would you like to tell me what's bothering you? i don't know, honey. i-i don't seem to be getting anywhere. i mean, i've been doing pretty much the same job for the last three years, and what have i accomplished? sweetheart, i think you've accomplished a great deal. like what? well, look around you. we're not exactly starving, you know. well, honey, i know we have most of the things we need, but just having the things you need isn't everything. i mean... i'd like to buy you some of the things that you haven't got.
what about that fur coat? oh, darrin, i haven't heard you talk this way before. do you remember the new account i was telling you about -- waterhouse and company? the one the agency's been trying to get for years? yes. oh, don't tell me you lost it. no, we got it all right. the trouble is, i will not be handling it. did you talk to larry? larry is the one who told me about it. well, i know how you feel. but maybe -- well, maybe you're just in too much of a hurry to get to the top. remember, you're still young. i'm young all right, but i won't always be young. [ telephone rings ] if that's larry, tell him i'm on my way. hello. oh, hi, louise. yeah, sure, i'd like to hear some good news.
terhouse account? oh, i can't wait to tell him. oh, well, all right. if larry wants to tell him himself, i understand. i won't say a word. it won't be easy, but i promise. oh -- oh, i'd love to. yes, i'll do some shopping, and then i'll meet you for lunch. okay. bye. who was it, honey? what are you so happy about? she wants me to meet her for lunch. oh, boy. some life i've given you. what do you mean? a little thing like going out to lunch, and you're ecstatic. i'm easy to please. now, i'll just go change, and then i'll drive you to the office. honey, i'm a little late. mmm! only take a minute. darrin. larry, i want to speak to you about the waterhouse account.
talking to you about it first. do you remember the hofstadter-douglas account? yes, but -- before i took over, hofstadter hadn't spoken to douglas in over 30 years. you did a fine job there, darrin. and let's not overlook the michael sales company account. before i took charge, they couldn't give away ice water in the middle of the mojave desert. a memorable job. yes, it was. and don't change the subject. then there was the pender drug account, and sheridan cement. all first class. and all the others. i haven't thought about hours or days off. i've proved my loyalty, and it's about time you gave me an unqualified vote of confidence. now, larry, either i get that waterhouse account, or you get yourself a new boy. you got it. i mean it, larry! i've got the waterhouse account? that's what i wanted to tell you when you came in.
because i was too immature. what did i do, age overnight? i just thought it over, and this morning i changed my mind. and, darrin, i know you'll do a great job. good luck. well, thanks, larry. you won't be sorry. i still don't get it. what made you change your mind? oh, it's the boss's prerogative. i'll buy that. i can't wait to tell sam. oh, i was tempted to tell her myself, but i knew that you wanted that pleasure. oh, yeah. when -- when did you see samantha? there's a great little wife you've got there, darrin -- has your every interest at heart. she sure has. she's got more confidence in me than i have in my-- uh, larry, you, uh, stopped and spoke to her? we chatted awhile. you chatted awhile. yes.
what are you talking about? i will not accept any job that my wife got for me. darrin, you got this job because you're the best man for it. that's not the point. any success i make in this business, i'm going to make on my own or not at all. look, i'll have to make this fast. mr. waterhouse is outside. before you meet him, i want to brief you -- i don't need any briefing, larry. waterhouse is a very conservative man. he's been making thumbtacks since 1888, i don't know why he decided to change agencies and come with us, but take a tip from me and play it sincere and conservative, hmm? uh-huh. betty, would you please ask mr. waterhouse to come in here? larry, you just leave everything to me. ha ha. well, if it isn't ol' j.p. waterhouse, thumbtack king of america. stephens is my name, and advertising is my game. lay it on me, baby!
who's handling my account? uh, yes, mr. waterhouse. this is darrin -- you bet your bottom dollar i'm your boy. but time's a-wasting. let's get down to brass tacks! brass tacks! ha ha! i got a million of 'em. all levity aside, porterhouse. now, i've been looking at your advertising, and believe me, some of your ideas went out with hoop skirts. i mean, it's, "hey, you, kid with a wawa brush!" uh, what darrin means, mr. waterhouse, is that, uh, some of your ideas ht into better focus -- oh, no, no, larry. larry, that isn't what i mean at all. what i mean is, waterhose, baby, you got to get with it. that tv commercial of yours where the executive comes in, and he puts the poster up on the wall, and... oh, that has got to go! but, say, what if you should take a -- mmm, cute, little secretary, and she comes into the boss's office, and she's putting thumbtacks in the boss's drawer,
s down? [ shrieks ] that'll bring the tv viewer right out of his chair. bring the boss out of his chair, too. that's enough, darrin! hold it, tate. i'll talk to this boy. young man, you might as well know it now. i don't like you. i don't like your manner. i don't like your style. i don't like your attitude. but i do like your ideas. stephens, i'm putting next year's entire campaign in your hands. you are? yes. we've been advertising the same way for 30 years. it's not working anymore. that's why i changed agencies, decided we have to keep things up to date. get to work on that campaign right away. and, uh, remember one thing, gentlemen -- waterhouse is my name, and thumbtacks is my game. he wants me. [ sighs ] darrin... you must have somebody watching over you.
't win. where are you going? to a bar to drown my sorrows. drown your sorrows? you just landed a big account. well, let's just say i'm a sore winner! yeah, you came to the right guy for advice, darrin. i'm an expert. i know everything about marriage. that's why i'm still single. i don't get it. i'm married to a girl who can have anything in the whole world, yet she chose me. you take my brother. the trouble is, he's been married for 16. hmm. she must love me. gave up everything for me. but obviously she misses all those luxuries. who can blame her? it all boils down to the old question -- is there a life after marriage? she just didn't want to hurt my pride... wants me to think that i'm the breadwinner.
women get weary wearing the same shabby dress. well, then, that's the time to go out and buy her another shabby dress. that's why she's doing it this way... instead of just whapping up a million dollars. i guess i have been selfish, forcing her to give up her witchhood, live on my salary. poor little witch. you see, the thing to do is to try to keep the magic in your marriage. she's been a great wife. be my way of saying thanks. oh, listen, you're welcome. anytime, darrin, old boy. anytime. oh, darrin! oh, it's -- it's beautiful! well, you shouldn't have. oh, but i'm glad you did.
you guessed i would, huh? well, you deserve it! mmm! it's beautiful. you like my gift, huh? well, darrin, you know what they say -- it isn't the gift, it's the thought that counts. oh, yes, of course i like it. sam, you could've whapped up a mink coat anytime you wanted. oh, darling, the important thing is that you gave it to me. i guess i shouldn't have worried about getting that account. after all, you said you had a strong feeling about it. about you, too. sam, what if i hadn't gotten the account? oh, darrin, i'd feel the same way if you were a total failure. but you're not -- you're a success. and you're going to be an even bigger success. that's love. that's confidence. well, how about a drink? honey, did you ever hear the old saying, "behind every successful man, there's a woman"?
well, they ain't seen nothing yet. huh? suddenly i have a tremendous feeling of power. why? because nobody ever had a woman like you behind them. oh. thank you. [ rain falls, thunder crashes ] wow! sweetheart, you better take your umbrella. i'm sure it'll stop raining in a few minutes. it's raining awfully hard! what makes you think so? because i want it to. what? i mean, i feel it will. oh. [ laughs ] have a good day. i know i will. my, you are mr. confidence this morning. i'm on a winning streak. [ gasps ] darrin, it stopped. maybe you are on a winning streak. honey, there's an old gambler's expression -- when you're on a winning streak, ride it. i'll see you tonight.
sam, i'm worried about him. i thought i better tell you. tell me what? he's suddenly convinced himself that he's infallible. he's been going around making the craziest bets. he thinks he has some sort of strange power. well, that doesn't sound like darrin. larry, are you sure you're not exaggerating? sam, he just wanted to bet me that he could make the sun come out at midnight. you're not exaggerating. uh, when did all this start? well, i first noticed him behaving strangely had the waterhouse account. he shouted something about not having his life run by his wife. you don't think he's on the verge of a nervous breakdown? no. no, no, larry. i don't think that's what he's on the verge of. then why is he acting as if he had a charmed life? well, i wouldn't worry about it if i were you. i'm sure by tomorrow he'll be back to normal. bye.
without even giving me a chance to defend myself. oh, it reminds me of the old days in salem. as a matter of fact, he even looks like the judge who sentenced your poor old aunt agnes to the stake. oh, mother. how could he doubt me? how could he think he'd gotten that job through witchcraft? please give him credit for having the sense to realize that he didn't get it because of his brains. there's only one thing to do -- teach him a lesson. now, that is excellent. why not turn him into a dinosaur? or a salamander? or perhaps you -- no. no, mother. i'm going to do it my way. well, all right, dear. but don't overlook the dinosaur. the neighbors might get quite a kick out of it. oh, i have a better idea. honey, i'm ho--
you did, huh? yes, and it was sweet of you to go along with it. [ bell rings ] anyway, since you decided to go along with it, i thought we might as well be honest with each other. oh. two very dry martinis, charles. right away, madame. you'll simply adore charles. he's in charge of the rest of the staff. what staff? the upstairs maid, the chef, and your valet. we were just being honest with each other. oh, yes, of course. since you found out about my little scheme and you didn't seem to have any objections, i thought it was silly to be devious any longer. that makes sense, doesn't it? i suppose so. good. now, in the future, if we need anything, i'll just zap it up. oh, darrin, it'll be so marvelous. i'll be able to give you anything you want. ah, thank you, charles.
all right, sweetheart, here's to your success. [ sighs ] what's the matter? i can't swallow this. but charles makes the best martinis in the whole world. no, i mean this! it's no good, sam. i can't live this way. look, i sympathize with you wanting all these things, but, well, you're going to have to make a choice. it's either me or this. darrin, don't you think you're being a little unreasonable? i will not be helped by witchcraft. it got you the waterhouse account. that was different. i did that for you. what about the pender drug account six months ago? you got me that, too? and the cushman furniture account and the carpet account. hold it, hold it! there's only one thing that got me that account, and that was me. i showed them how to increase their business by 39.2% in the first fiscal year. and the sheridan cement account. sheridan cement? there was no witchcraft there. i knew more about sheridan cement than sheridan did.
that there are some things in this world, like talent, ability, and good hard work that will not be replaced by witchcraft. you forgot one thing. what? faith. faith? faith in the person closest to you. faith enough to know that when a promise is made, it's going to be kept. you didn't get me the waterhouse account? mnh-mnh. you didn't stop the rain? and you didn't change betty's birthplace? well, i'm not sure, but i don't even think that's legal. i thought... darrin, all you had to do was ask me. one more question. could you possibly spend the rest of your life with a big dumbhead who promises never to jump to conclusions again?
[ rain falling ] it's amazing how many things i guessed right yesterday. you don't suppose i do have some special power, do you? oh, darrin, don't let a few lucky coincidences go to your head. you better take your umbrella. no, i won't need my umbrella or my coat. but it's pouring. it'll stop in a few seconds. i'm running a little test. bye, honey. [ thunder crashes ]
convinced? convinced. oh, tabitha, your daddy is going to be awfully proud of you this evening. imagine -- pointing at your age. hi, sweetheart. hi, darling. hello, tabitha. did you have a nice day today? well, we had a very important day today. darling, you have a most unusual daughter. well, what makes you say that? well, not many little girls can do what she did at her age. well, what did she do that was so unusual? she pointed at that lamp. well, what did it do? what? the lamp. well, lamps don't do anything. but she pointed at it. oh, darrin, this has nothing to do with witchcraft.
i am pleased. and very relieved. well, all right. i'll go and fix dinner, and you hang on to her for a while, huh? okay. sweetheart, i apologize for accusing you of having any hocus-pocus with that there lamp. sam! sam! what's the matter? honey, it must've been a delayed reaction. it went on by itself! oh, darrin. well, then how do you explain how it went on? well, i can't exactly explain it technically. it's a big mystery to me, too. it is? yes. but as i walked out of the room, i flicked this switch right here and the light went on. oh, is that all? is that all? well, i think that's remarkable!

well, have you recovered from the marvels of electricity yet? thank you. and don't rub it in. anything else happen today? no -- oh, i forgot to tell you. gladys kravitz telephoned. she wants us to come over and watch television. how come? w-well, it's kind of a special occasion. you remember gladys' brother louis? how could i ever forget louis gruber, the chicken fiddler? well, he isn't chicken anymore. he's played a number of concerts, and tonight he's making his debut on national television. he owes it all to you, sam. all he needed was a little confidence. well, you sure gave it to him. yeah, much against your wishes, as i recall. you were pregnant at the time. and you didn't want me overexerting my nose? no. well, let's just hope this evening is not as disastrous as the last time we visited the kravitzes. that was a bit of a fiasco, wasn't it? it all started with the banana cake, as i remember.
yes, you have to wear a tie. and hurry up. we'll be late. i could be about three days late for this thing. we'll probably sit around all night listening to him play the violin. i hope he does play. he's supposed to be very talented. mrs. kravitz said so. well, what do you expect mrs. kravitz to say about her own brother? you should hear what mr. kravitz said. oh, that reminds me. i promised to take a banana cake over for dessert. why? well, evidently louis is a big eater. besides, i know you like my banana cake n mrs. kravitz's. well, at least you peel the bananas. it looks marvelous! what recipe did you use? oh, it was one of those instant mixes. hello, neighbors. oh, please, please, sit down. sit down. louis said that if he's in the mood, he'll play for us tonight. oh, that's marvelous. he happens to be a brilliant violinist. oh.
he's just between engagements. 26 years between engagements. he should go out and get a job. gladys: he can't get an ordinary job. uh, he'd hurt his hands. maybe we should come back some other time. why? it won't get any better. oh, good evening! oh, good, you brought the cake! this is my brother, louis gruber. mr. and mrs. stephens. hello. how do you do? mrs. kravitz said you were about to go on tour. uh, yes. i, uh, i had been giving it some thought. i think that's wonderful. when would it be? one doesn't measure these things by time. he measures them by free meals. mrs. kravitz was saying you were only 9 years old when you played in carnegie hall. please, don't mention carnegie.
ooh! and what a performance. sounds interesting. i don't want to talk about it. i wouldn't talk about it either if my knickers fell down. gladys, he's doing it again. abner! i was telling the truth. gladys, let's eat. during his career, louis met very important people. yep. those were the days. it's not easy reaching your prime when you're 9. but what about your new tour? won't be the same. louis, i'm sure you'll be a success again. i don't think people have forgotten you. how could they? his knickers fell down. no, sam's right. a man with your talent shouldn't have trouble. who's got talent now? who? well, uh, heifetz. ha! he plays with his thumbs. heifetz? he's brilliant! he should play the square dance.
o like i pick my teeth. they must've had some talent. they're all against me. it's common knowledge. well, louis, if you're as good as you say you are, then... you don't think i can play, do you? well, i didn't say that. say it. i'm a fraud. you're a fraud. darrin, please. it doesn't really matter. i know i'm a genius. abner! how could you do that? you know he's so sensitive! sensitive? he's scared stiff. ever since the knickers, he can't play in front of an audience. i still think if he has that much talent, he should --
and you thought it was gonna be a dull evening. well, i don't know who gave the better performance, louis or mr. kravitz. it's too bad he hasn't had a chance to play. well, you heard what abner said. he's scared. and i'm inclined to agree with him. all he needs is a little push. well, if he stays with abner, he'll get it, right out the window. sam, don't. there'll be a big crowd, lots of important people. might be good for his confidence. sam, you're a housewife, not sol hurok. i can call the entertainment committee. it wouldn't be any trouble. sam, stay out of it, please. louis needs a chance. the hospital needs money. it's a perfect plan.
you're still at it? you know i have to practice! since 5:00 this morning? when am i gonna get some peace and quiet? abner, let him alone. he's practicing. go for a walk. i've been for a walk seven times around the block already. the neighbors think i'm a peddler. i cannot practice in this atmosphere. good! abner, if he stops practicing, he'll lose his touch. if he doesn't stop, he'll lose his teeth. so you want to hit someone, huh? well, then hit! hit, hit, hit, hit. the feet, watch the feet. watch the feet. gladys, think of what you're doing. you've been protecting him all your life! you've treated him like a baby. that's why he can't get a job. a big baby! i've tried to get jobs, dozens of them, but they won't have me. what about philadelphia? that wasn't my fault. i was sick.
i don't have to take this. i'm leaving. good! only the room. louis, please, stay here and practice. for how long? another hour. abner, he's got to perfect his technique. keep his fingers in shape. why, we're having hot biscuits again? you'll be proud of me one day, when i'm back at carnegie hall and i have the whole world at my feet. that's better than your knickers. i've arranged everything. louis, you're gonna give a concert. a c-concert? yes, saturday matinee, the hospital benefit. is there an audience? oh, yes. it'll be a sellout. at least 500 people. 500 people.

if there's anything a genie shouldn't do, it's drive their masters up the wall. oh, i do not mean to drive you up a wall-- i-- i know, i know-- i know you don't. but we're not gonna have that problem now. you see, all you have to do is follow the book. oh. follow the book. that's right.
