"Paris Witch's Style"
Airdate: Oct. 20, 1971
Samantha and Darrin are sightseeing in Paris and Sam is sending back postcards, witches' style, to Tabitha and Adam at home. Endora is staying with the kids. During this, Samantha's father Maurice drops in at the Stephens' house and learns that his daughter is in Europe and didn't stop off in London to see him. He is very mad and Endora is worried for Sam. Endora pops over to Paris to warn Sam and, while she is there, Maurice enters as a black cloud. When Maurice blames everything on Darrin, Endora produces a robot Darrin to try to get the real Darrin off the hook. The robot is kind and gentle and tells Maurice that they didn't want to arrive in London before their gift was ready for him. He then takes out a Picasso portrait of Maurice. Maurice is impressed but fears he has broken Darrin's spirit and takes him into the other room to talk to him. The real Darrin comes in and, while Maurice leaves the robot Darrin for a minute, Endora zaps the robot out. Maurice learns of the trick and zaps the real Darrin to the top of the Eiffel Tower where he clings for dear life. When Darrin is down again, Sam tries to make him forget the incident and assures him that Maurice has left Paris. But, when they arrive back at the hotel, they find Maurice there. Darrin speaks up to him and Endora steps in to protect him - turns him into a statue of Napoleon which Maurice then breaks into a million pieces. He won't put Darrin back together - says he doesn't have the strength - until Endora threatens to move in with him to nurse him back to health. He brings Darrin back and things are back to normal. Just then, Henri Sagan of Europa tours, a prospective client of Darrin's, comes in carrying the newspaper picture of Darrin on the Eiffel Tower. Maurice comes to Darrin's rescue and tells Sagan that the slogan will read "Don't try to see Paris from the top of the Eiffel Tower. Let Europa Tours show it to you properly". Sagan loves it and everyone is happy.
Guest cast: Maurice Marsac as Sagan.
