Airdate: Oct. 6, 1971

Darrin and Samantha are in their little Italian villa overlooking the Leaning Tower of Pisa when Esmeralda pays them a visit. She had been baby sitting with Tabitha but everything was going wrong and she wanted to talk to Sam. Esmeralda tells Sam and Darrin that she was the one who made the Tower lean. She had been engaged to the builder, Bonano Pisano, and she goofed and caused his half-completed Tower to lean hundreds of years ago. Larry comes in with a client, Count Bracini, who immediately takes a liking to Esmeralda. Sam and Darrin are afraid she will let something slip so they don't let her out of their sight. Esmeralda decides to try to right her mistake - and, sure enough, she makes the Tower stand upright. Samantha is distraught - the city reacts in amazement - and Esmeralda forgets how she righted the Tower. Sam must so back in time with her and they relive the experience with Pisano. Esmeralda is then able to make the Tower lean once again. The Count is joyous. Every paper has run headlines on the incident and tourism will double. And Esmeralda has regained her confidence.

Guest cast: John Rico as the count, Robert Gasper as Bonano, Phil Garris as the announcer, Peter Virgo, Sr. as the cab driver, Steve Conte as the priest.
