7:00 am
diamo. announcer: ron carlton here with the news, -- captions by vitac brought to you every morning by scrub. hi, honey. uh, i thought you'd left. no. why? it's early. i have a feeling mother's going to drop in. it's late. just a minute. she promised the next time she came she'd let me know in advance. and now a special announcement. darrin stephens of this city will receive a visit from his mother-in-law today. [ ding! ] that's what you call letting me know in advance? you didn't specify how far in advance. this is for you, darling. oh. who's it from? ticheba. oh, my goodness. tiche-who? ticheba. she's -- oh, my goodness. what does she say? she -- she said -- oh, my goodness. stop saying that and tell me.
7:01 am
oh, my goodness. look, honey, if it's going to upset you, just tell this ticheba not to come. [ gasps ] endora: not to come? [ laughs ] that's the funniest thing you've ever said. nobody tells ticheba anything. why not? who is she -- queen of the witches or something? that is right. that's right. ask a silly question... [ thunder crashes ] [ wind howling ]
7:02 am
7:03 am
7:04 am
7:05 am
7:06 am
how very nice.
7:07 am
well, thank you, your majesty. where is the main house? uh, i'm afraid this is it. really? if you don't mind, i think i'd prefer my own chair. of course not, your majesty. . [ growls ] yes? i forgot the question. uh... [ grunts ] how long is she gonna be here? samantha: well, i don't know, sweetheart. well, it doesn't matter, as long as she's gone by the time i get home. well, i'm leaving.
7:08 am
come here, my dear. my dear, i have decided to abdicate, and you have been chosen to serve in my place. well, i-i'm honored, your majesty, more than words can express. and i can't accept it. i beg your pardon? what's bothering her. it's dumbo. well, that's hardly a problem. i'll turn him into something suitable, like a doormat. no. you will show me my room. i'd like to rest. well, right this way, your majesty. now, please, let me try and explain, your majesty. you see, when i married darrin, i promised i wouldn't use any witchcraft. now, he's been very understanding up until now,
7:09 am
i'm married to a mortal, and i have a child and a house to take care of. one thing you must do is find quarters more suitable for a queen. perhaps you'd like some of your own furniture up here. that might help. well, now, that's better. uh, y-your majesty, do you understand? it's a bit crowded, isn't it? of course i am. i heard every word you said. your husband represents a problem, and i have told you -- i personally will take care of dumbo. his name is darrin. either way, you have no problem. what's beyond that wall? the master bedroom.
7:10 am
ohh. your majesty, i refuse to be queen. we do our best, but sometimes we fail. samantha, come with me. what does that make me -- prince valiant? this is no joking matter. you're not kidding. well, it's a great, great honor, and it means a lot to me and even more to mother. and what i think doesn't count? i'm just a doormat around here, i suppose. not yet. what? i promise, you won't be inconvenienced. i won't.
7:11 am
oh, uh, no, no, sweetheart. ticheba insisted upon doing a little redecorating. i-i'll change it as soon as she leaves. she feels more at home this way. where does she live -- the taj mahal? darrin, try to understand. being queen is something that every witch mother dreams of for her little girl, just as every american father dreams that someday his boy will be president. if memory serves, no president are. how do you expect to take care of your home and your family? oh, well, i've got that all worked out. whenever business does come up, i'll just take care of it after midnight. i just don't understand. why you? yeah. why me? well, um, it's -- it's sort of hard to explain. try. well, uh, certain witches are chosen at birth.
7:12 am
you have no choice. and it really doesn't matter what i think? not really. [ sighs ] in that case, what can i say? oh, darrin, i knew you'd understand. all hail ticheba, our queen. [ thunder crashing ] you may rise.
7:13 am
[ gong bangs ] this universal coven, i do convene. its purpose, you know, to crown a queen to rule all witchdom from this point hence. if all be present, let the oath taking commence. [ gong bangs ] [ fanfare plays ]
7:14 am
7:15 am
[ bell ringing ] who's there? who's there?! i have an appointment with her majesty.
7:16 am
u disguised as a bird? what disguise? hmm. so, i have been made a committee of one to petition your majesty for pardon for all of us. are there many of you? i'd hate to tell you how many. ticheba had a pretty short fuse, you know? one wrong word and -- bingo -- we were transformed. well, i -- oh. uh, darrin, don't tell me we woke you. it's all right. i won't tell you. i always get up at 3:00 in the morning. forgive me for not waiting in line, your majesty, but could you spare a moment of your time? certainly. you may withdraw.
7:17 am
of one of the largest steel companies in the country. now, his advertising account is worth over $8.5 million in billing. if i can swing him over to our agency, they've got to give me a bonus... oh? ...or at least make me a partner. oh, well, that's wonderful, sweetheart. it won't be if i fall asleep during that meeting. most of this activity is caused by the changeover in administration. it'll taper off. you'll see. i'm gonna get myself a glass of milk. you can tell your friends i'll pardon them all. [ squawks ] you will? oh, thank you, your majesty. thank you. tell them to assemble here tomorrow, but remember, not before 12:00. thank you. here you are, mr. rohrbach. oh, thank you.
7:18 am
t things are delicious, mrs. stephens. oh, well, thank you. thank you very much. i just threw them together. if you'll excuse me, i have another batch in the oven. well, i like what i see, stephens. the house -- good taste without ostentation. thank you, sir. and your wife's gonna fit into the rohrbach family real well. i'm glad you feel that way, sir. it'll take us about a week to sever relations with the company that's now handling our account. heck, what's a week? de, but -- what was that? pardon? didn't you just see a bird fly through here? what bird? that was probably just a bird -- a shadow. you need some ice. no. no. no, thanks.
7:19 am
fresh out of ice. but i told you -- not until after 12:00 midnight. oh, 12:00 midnight. sam, get that bird out of here and fast. sweetheart, there's been a terrible misunderstanding. wait till you see the misunderstanding we're gonna have! [ moos ]
7:20 am
you better leave before you end up in a fricassee. what's going on? i told you to wait outside, didn't i? sam, do something. you should have seen the look on rohrbach's face when that bird flew in. and i'll bet when he saw the chair -- saw the chair? holy mackerel! oh! how are you doing, sir? a chair just came in that door and walked right through this hall. mr. rohrbach, have you been, uh... i only had one, and i know what i saw. well, just think what you're saying, sir. a chair came through that door and walked through this hall?
7:21 am
...than a lamp can. what kind of a place is this? what are you referring to, sir? i don't know what's going on here, but i don't want any part of it, and i don't want any part of anybody that's got any part of it. aah! before you leave, sir, what about your account? what account? [ clattering ] [ horse neighing ] all right. everybody off the fat guy and clear out till midnight. [ horse neighs, goat bleats, cow moos ] [ door slams ] darrin, i'm sorry. sam, i want you to abdicate.
7:22 am
okay. you said you couldn't refuse the crown. okay. so you accepted it. you've been queen for a day. that's enough. no, it isn't. i say it is. i have to serve for at least a year. you didn't tell me that. i didn't? then he has got to walk. you're so right. "it's just for a year," she says. "okay," i say. "call me in about a year. i'll be at joe's bar and grill." i know how you feel. i got a problem with my wife, too -- her mother. with all due respect, friend, your problem can't be as bad as mine. my wife is queen of the witches.
7:23 am
samantha, it's almost midnight, and the transformees will be arriving. you should be getting into your robes. i thought i heard a car. look, if he comes back, he comes back. if he doesn't, we'll open a bottle of champagne. well, i thought that was rather a good idea. well, i'm just not going to stand for it in my house. if i have to, i won't go home for a year. it's just about a year since i've been home. i mean it. i -- it is? i never should have told my mother-in-law to get out of the house. she owns it. you haven't seen your family in all that time? [ voice breaking ] i went back once about six months ago. my kid didn't recognize me. the dog bit me, and he's my dog. [ sobbing ]
7:24 am
wow. you know, pal, this job gives me a chance to see some pretty good observations. now, he thinks his mother-in-law is a holy terror, and you think your wife's queen of the witches. but if the truth be it known, they all got their good points, right, pal? they sure do, pal.
7:25 am
7:26 am
7:27 am
[ crickets chirping ] hi. say -- you missed all the excitement. she was sensational. the incantation was beautiful. and, you know,
7:28 am
oh? and then she touched each one of us with her scepter and -- presto -- we were all back to our original form. is that better? you know, i'm gonna miss being a bird. "gonna miss being a bird." samantha, bad news. he's back. te for the monster rally. darrin! oh! mother, don't you have someplace to fly? sweetheart, now, don't you know that you're more important to me than any old crown? now, i don't know what's gonna happen if i resign. no one's ever done it, but i'm going to.
7:29 am
been doing some thinking, too... and i don't want to come home someday and find out that my child doesn't know me and have the dog bite me. what dog? that's right. we don't have one. anyway, the thing i realized is that your being queen is part of what you are, and if i love you enough, i have to accept that, just the way you accept certain things about my world. so... your majesty. [ chuckles ] rise, silly goose. [ gasps ] oh, darrin! darrin, i'm terribly sorry. [ squawking ] oh, it was a terrible mistake. darrin, come back here. darrin! darrin! oh, please! darrin, please, if you'd just stand still, then i can change you back. sweetheart! sweetheart!
7:30 am
yes. oh, that's a good girl.please! yes, she's grandmama's good girl. well, how are we doing? did anyone ever tell you that this child is positively incredible? you tell her something, and she never forgets it. now, watch. tabitha, stay right there. now, watch grandmama. who is the prettiest little lady in the whole wide world? grandmama. [ chuckles ] i believe in telling a child the absolute truth. did anyone ever tell you that you are impossibly endearing? now, you run along and have a nice lunch with what's his name. oh, i'm not having lunch with what's his name. you're not? no, i'm having lunch with darrin. now, mother, one last thing -- please remember, no witchcraft in front of tabitha. you know how it upsets him. who?
7:31 am
bye-bye, love. be a good girl, and take care of grandmama. you hear what she said? hmm? now, shall we pick out a nice toy to play with? hmm? what about the soldier? no. the drummer? no. what about the teddy bear? [ tinkles ] [ gasps ] oh, tabitha! tabitha, how marvelous... especially when you consider the discouraging atmosphere around here. isn't it a pretty little doll? you're doing very well, tabitha. [ thunder crashing ] well, about time! know how long i've been tracking you down?
7:32 am
expecting a couple of thousand guests, the way i hear it. oh, fiddle-faddle. i know all that. it's next week. no, it ain't. it's been moved up to today -- 11:00. oh, how dreadful. all those people expecting me, and here i am, sitting with a baby. well, appears to me you got plenty of babysitters. pick any one of them toys, put a spell on it, and you've got yourself a sitter. of course. you're absolutely right. thank you for an excellent suggestion. don't thank me. just leave a forwarding address next time. [ thunder crashes ] ahh! well! there. i think this is a nice babysitter. now, watch, tabitha.
7:33 am
say "hello" to your babysitter. hi. [ chuckles ]
7:34 am
you tell your insurance company they made a mistake. the check they sent isn't enough to replace your totaled new car. the guy says they didn't make the mistake. you made the mistake. i beg your pardon?
7:35 am
let me be frank, he says. you picked the wrong insurance plan. no. i picked the wrong insurance company. with liberty mutual new car replacement?, we'll replace the full value of your car plus depreciation. call 1-844-231-7721. make the switch to liberty mutual and see why we've been awarded highest in customer satisfaction by j.d. power. at 1-844-231-7721. that's 1-844-231-7721. liberty stands with you?
7:36 am
7:37 am
isn't that fun, tabitha? would you care to take the busby off? or are you more comfortable with it on? it's a shame we can't make you talk. but as long as you understand, i suppose you'll do. now, look. the juice is in the refrigerator. and if there's anything you need, just...ring, and i'll pop right back. all right? have fun, lovebug. [ ding! ] juice.
7:38 am
[ ding! ] juice. drink. hello? hello? uh, honey... you wouldn't believe what just went on in larry's office. i finally had to invite him to dinner tonight. oh? what's the matter? well, i-i just called the house,
7:39 am
but nobody said "hello." nobody said "hello"? [ ding! ] mother! [ drumming in distance ]
7:40 am
you want to tell me again how responsible your mother is?! well... no. i'm sorry to have to do this to you, sweetheart. but until you unlearn what your loving grandmother taught you, it's got to be done. sorry, honey. well? oh, no, i can't seem to locate her, so we'll just have to wait till she gets back. meanwhile, we'd better cancel dinner. i already have -- uh, sort of. "sort of"? well, i called larry and left a message with louise. luckily, larry wasn't there. but the chases are on their way here. what do i tell them when they get here? "welcome to disneyland"?
7:41 am
you don't understand. those things running around in there make me nervous. just because i don't have an ulcer now doesn't mean i can't get one!
7:42 am
7:43 am
7:44 am
hi, hon! oh, hi! a little wine for our hosts. oh, they just called. the dinner's off. oh? it's something about tabitha. what's wrong with her? but, uh, he said it's nothing serious, one of those 24-hour things. that's a shame. oh, i'm sure she'll be fine. no, i mean about the dinner. i was looking forward to spending the evening with bob chase. [ sighs ] did you know he had sam and darrin to dinner a few weeks ago? well, what about it? well, i'm not saying that i suspect him of anything, but he has been getting awfully chummy with one of our best clients. and it wouldn't be the first time
7:45 am
you know something, larry? you're sick. really? i'd rather be sick than sorry. hey, you know, the chases will be high and dry, too. why don't i give them a call and invite them out to dinner? good suggestion. larry. just remember this -- chase's billings come to over $10 million. hello? this is larry tate. may i speak to bob chase, please? well, do you know where i can reach them? i see. no, thanks. i know the number. sick, huh? larry, i'm sure there must be some explanation. you bet there is! darrin doesn't want me there with chase. look. will you stop exaggerating? i'll fix us a nice dinner, and we'll open the wine, okay? that wine is too expensive for us to drink. i bought it to impress chase.
7:46 am
i'm restless. i think i'll go out for a little ride. larry, now, you just promise me you're not gonna do anything foolish. like what? like going by darrin's to check. are you kidding? you think i'm gonna barge in there and make a complete fool of myself? well, i should hope not. i'll just drive by and see what i can see from the street. when your mother gets back, believe me, she's gonna hear a few thousand well-chosen words from me! darrin, that's it. that's not it. i don't think so. i'm sure it was something terribly important that took her away. i never thought i'd be mad about her being taken away. [ tinkles ]
7:47 am
about the only good thing that's happened so far is that larry wasn't home when i called. sometimes he's like a kid. [ crickets chirping ] [ drumming in distance ] oh, my goodness! aah! a costume party. hold it. hold it! hold it! hold it! everybody upstairs! everybody upstairs! we'll get these three upstairs and lock them in, then come back for the others.
7:48 am
hello, there. quite a party, huh? say, uh, did you happen to run into bob chase in there? and she calls me sick. say, don't i know you? wait a minute. i thought so. you must be the new man in accounting, right? now, don't tell me the name. i'll get it. uh... max hopkins, right? i never forget an employee's name -- never. confidentially, max...
7:49 am
well, that's it, except for the soldier. i'll go get him. you check tabitha. let's -- let's you and i have a little discussion, hmm? but not here -- let's go someplace and have a drink, okay? [ vehicle door opens ] larry: hop in, max. oh, watch your hat. off we go. [ engine turns over ] [ gasps ] oh, my stars! well, they're all locked up, and tabitha's asleep. now if your mother would only get back. what about the soldier? did you find him? w-- uh, sort of. what do you mean by that? he left.
7:50 am
you work and slave to build up an organization, and then what happens? one sour apple comes along, and the barrel goes down the drain. know what i mean? got to say one thing for you, max. you're a darn good listener -- a very good quality in a man. [ slurring ] what's that? we get all kinds in here, from the normal to the mentally insane. [ telephone rings ] happy times bar. joe the mixologist speaking. is larry tate there with a fellow in costume? yeah, they're here. good. keep them there. i'll do the best i can. bye. that's where they are.
7:51 am
yeah, but now that i've found them, what am i gonna tell him? hmm. drink up, max. you're gonna go far with mcmann & tate, because one thing we value -- well, well, well. if it isn't speak of the devil. larry, i've got to talk to you. there's nothing to talk about. it's all been said and done. you stay there, max. now, look, larry... max? no use pretending. max has already told me that you asked him to join your new agency. how could he tell you -- what new agency? will you stop it? the one you're raiding my staff and stealing my clients to open is the one. check! check, please! but, larry, uh -- uh, here. this should cover it.
7:52 am
abbing me in the back, you brutus. uh, larry, doesn't it seem odd to you that, uh, max, as you call him, hasn't said a word all evening? well, some people don't have small talk. but he's a great listener. you could take a lesson from him. larry, he's not human! oh, n-now -- now you're going overboard. i'll admit he's kind of dull, but... i'm trying to tell you something! he's a doll! well, make up your mind. either you like him or you don't. larry, please, let's sit down. please? please sit down. samantha's mother was babysitting for us today. and, larry, you're not going to believe this, but she -- ohh! hi, larry. did you see that? i didn't see anything. what are you talking about? nothing. i'll have a double this time.
7:53 am
uh, excuse us, larry. where did she come from? beats me. the toys got away again. but fortunately, mother arrived and took care of them. what's going on here? well, larry thinks we're having a costume party. and he thinks that he's an employee and that i'm trying to sal him and bob chase to open my own agency! but that's crazy! i know! but how do we convince larry? e me the spell, so i'll just change him back to toy size. right here?! believe me, it's the only way to straighten larry out. now, you go keep him busy for a minute. i'll have another drink. so, uh, max told you everything, huh, larry? yeah. and for your information, he's going to stick with me. larry, if you don't mind,
7:54 am
right. max? i want you to tell benedict arn-- i want you to tell... you mean, uh... i've spent the whole evening talking to a toy soldier? cute little fellow, isn't he? here's that drink you ordered. are you kidding? i'm off that stuff for good! and i'm taking this to remind me. uh, larry, perhaps we ought to drive you home. oh, don't i know it.
7:55 am
right, max? uh, come on, larry.
7:56 am
7:57 am
7:58 am
i don't know why you're still angry. everything turned out all right. mother apologized all over the place. it's the first time she's ever done that. the point is, tabitha can still put a spell on her toys. what are we going to do about that?! her not to, the way we teach her not to do other things that are wrong, like throwing things and -- turning toys into people is not like throwing things! well, sweetheart, i had a -- i had a talk with her. and i'm -- i'm sure she really understands. i hope you're right. oh, isn't she a little doll? hmm? angel. this is tabitha. isn't that cute?
7:59 am
for me? okay. you can talk to my dad on the phone. thank you. hello? this is daddy speaking. who is this? pittsburgh?! excuse the call! well, isn't that wonderful? i mean, i couldn't do that until i was 5 years old. on a toy telephone! doesn't that bother you? darrin, i love you. daddy mad. besides, if the phone company doesn't find out, what difference does it make?
