The Corn is as High as a Guernsey's EyeEdit

The Trial and Error of Aunt ClaraEdit

- Samantha: You do?
- Darrin: Mm-hm. I finally figured it out. Ladies club, right?
- Samantha: Sort of.
- Darrin: Is it the committee for the bazaar?
- Samantha: Oh, I'd certainly call them a bizarre committee.
- Darrin: That was no lady, that was my mother-in-law!
- Samantha: Darrin, I'm leaving you.
- Darrin: Sam!
- Samantha: I'm going home to mother.
- Darrin: What do you mean "going home to mother"? Your mother's always here.

The Crone of CawdorEdit

And in this guise if she can secure, a willing kiss from a mortal pure. To her will pass the mortal's youth, to him will pass her age forsooth. [Legend of the Crone of Cawdor]
My What Big Ears You HaveEdit
- Darrin: A satisfactory explanation?! You're kidding!
- Samantha: It's not for me. I trust you implicitly, in spite of my doubts. Mother will not take off that spell until you explain.
- Darrin: Suppose you explain to me what gives your mother the right to bug my telephone calls.
- Samantha: Darrin, how can I explain my mother?
- Darrin (realizing Samantha's point): That's true.
Darrin, Gone and ForgottenEdit
- Samantha: Happy sweetheart?
- Darrin: Let's see. I've got a beautiful wife. Lovely daughter. Comfortable home. Good job. I guess I'm reasonably happy.
- Samantha: Why only 'reasonably'?
- Darrin: I would be ecstatically happy if you were an orphan!
- Samantha: Another remark like that and I'll be a widow.
- Samantha: I thought you and mother were getting along rather well lately. You were almost on speaking terms.

- [Samantha is trying to figure out who has taken Darrin.]
- Maurice: Uncle Arthur! That's it! Uncle Arthur is using Darrin for one of his practical jokes.

Samantha's French PastryEdit

- Darrin: Ironic?
- Samantha: Yes. Who can you say it to?
Is It Magic Or Imagination?Edit

- Darrin: The point is, your slogan was rejected, it was lousy. Which proves it was your imagination!
Samantha Fights City HallEdit
- Larry Tate: [Laughs] Darrin, you old son of a gun, we've done it again. This Ezyway rent-a-car presentation is a masterpiece.
- Darrin: Just don't hog all the credit this time, huh, Larry. Let's make it 50-50 right down the line.
- Larry Tate: Done. I'll even go you one better, Darrin. If HB doesn't like it, it's all yours.

Adam, Warlock or Washout?Edit
- [Maurice is greeting Samantha.]

- Samantha: Aw, thank you, Daddy. You and Byron say the cutest things.

- Charlton, the bully: What kind of dumb name is Tabitha?
- Tabitha: It's not a dumb name.

- Tabitha: Because you never met anyone named Tabitha!
- [After Charlton keeps insisting that Tabitha turned him into a bullfrog.]

- Samantha: He was an excellent president, Sir.
- George Washington: Better than me?
- Darrin: Oh, I wouldn't say that.
- George Washington: Then why is President Lincoln's name on a $5 bill while the father of his country is only on a $1 bill?
- Samantha: Well, you see, more people can afford $1 bills than $5 bills which means more people see your picture than Abraham Lincoln's.
- Samantha: Sometimes, it's easier to be led than to lead. And a great many of our citizens prefer to stand on the sidelines and ignore their rights instead of defend them. They're called "The Silent Majority".
- George Washington: Experience has shown that mankind is more disposed to suffer evils while those evils are sufferable, than to right themselves and abolish those abuses.
