"The Truth, Nothing But the Truth, So Help Me, Sam"

Written by
Ed Jurist

Directed by
William Asher


Airdate: March 18, 1972

Endora, believing that mortals have a tendency to lie to each other, decides to prove her point. And, as usual Darrin is caught in the middle. Darrin buys a present for Samantha - a pin in the shape of a unicorn. Endora adds a little excitement by casting a "truth spell" on the pin - wherever it might be. This provides several embarrassing situations at Darrin's office, where he, his secretary and Larry get down to the gut truth about each other. The embarrassment multiplies in the Stephens' home that evening when Darrin and Samantha entertain Larry, along with a prospective client, a pompous middle-aged business woman, and her henpecked husband. The presence of the pin, which Darrin has now presented to Samantha, continues to precipitate many indelicate comments by whomever is immediately exposed to it. Worst of all, this "truth spell" threatens to cost Darrin and Larry the account. All ends well, however, as the brutal frankness of Darrin and Larry, directed toward the pompous prospective client, helps them to get the account instead of losing it. Darrin even gets a raise from Larry, to boot.

Guest cast: Parley Baer as Ed Franklin, Sara Seegar as Frances Franklin, Emily Banks as Betty, Bernie Kuby as the salesman.
