I, Darrin, Take This Witch, Samantha
When Samantha mentions Endora, Darrin
says, "You told me your mother was in India." To which Samantha
replies, "She is, but she dropped in on me this evening."
|| In one of Samantha's flying scenes,
she is shown flying all over the world in search of her mother.

Sam's Spooky Chair
| Endora and Samantha lived in
Boston at some point, when they were neighbors of the Farnsworths.
That was when Samantha went on one date with Clyde and he pined
over her for years in the form of a chair when she showed a lack
of interest in him.
Sam in the Moon
Endora and Samantha go shopping in

Toys in Babeland
|| Endora receives a message that
she is being honored and must be at the Taj Mahal at 11 o'clock
after she had promised Samantha that she would watch Tabitha. The
messenger convinces Endora to turn a toy soldier into a baby-sitter
before she flies off to India.
To Twitch or Not to Twitch
Samantha states that she knew Shakespeare,
Bluebeard, and Henry VIII. This indicates that she was alive in the
1500s. Note: This contradicts Endora in # 230. Endora says she was
not born at the time of King Henry VIII. So, it is possible that Samantha
just knows them from going back in time and was not born yet.
Samantha Loses Her Voice
|| Uncle Arthur says that he was
scheduled to ride the favorite in the Ostrich Derby, but does not
say where this type of Derby takes place. Yet in # 152,

Derby and said that it was in Sydney, Australia.
Samantha's Super Maid
When a hookah wielding Endora pops
in, Samantha asks her where she has been. Endora: "Persia, darling.
The shah of Xanadu is becoming really insistent, so I decided to teach
him a lesson, and disappear. But I'm really hooked on his hookah. He's
probably tearing the palace inside-out looking for it."
Samantha and Endora recall the time
when Samantha turned herself into a postage stamp due to a family spat
and got mailed to Istanbul. Samantha said, "Those Turks are kind
of rough!" in regards to her trip.
The Battle of Burning Oak
Endora says that she does not recall
a descendant of McMann and Tate's snobby client on the Mayflower implying
that she was there. Samantha later says that the relative was a stowaway.
Samantha's Shopping Spree
Endora goes to the moon to find cousin
Henry. It looks cold and dark and there is another moon in the distance.
Samantha's Yoo-Hoo Maid
Esmeralda said that she was once
a lady-in-waiting to a wife of King Henry VIII, so she's no "Spring
witchen." King Henry was a favorite of the witches, or at least
the writers for Bewitched. He ruled over England from 1509 to
1547, so that is a frequently used time reference.
Samantha's Curious Cravings
Dr. Bombay climbs the Matterhorn,
which is in Switzerland. He climbs to the summit of Mt. Everest in Nepal
and plants his own flag next to those of England, Switzerland, and the
And Something Makes Four...
Endora gave birth to Samantha on
the eve of the Galactic Rejuvenation and Dinner Dance while Maurice
was on the planet Venus.
What Makes Darrin Run
Endora shows up dressed like an astronaut
and just flew back from Venus and tells Samantha, "I planted a broom
there. It's ours now!" Then, she flies off to a decontamination chamber. Since
when did witches need an isolation suit to visit another planet and
also need to be "decontaminated"? Trips to Venus are mentioned in other
shows, such as # 175, And Something

Mona Sammy Portrait), which was painted by Leonardo Da Vinci
(1452-1519). Endora recalls the time when the portrait was painted
(in Italy or France?) and said that it had been cluttering up her
attic for centuries. This is the first reference to her owning a
home of her own.
