Samantha Meets the Folks is the 14th episode of the first season and the 20th episode of the second season as a repeat of the Bewitched.


Darrin's parents pay their first visit to the Stephens home. Darrin's mother, Phyllis, hopes to find that his wife is a poor housekeeper. Soon after, Samantha's Aunt Clara comes down the chimney for an unexpected visit. Darrin is worried about the kind of impression Aunt Clara will make on his parents, but agrees with Samantha that they must make Aunt Clara feel welcome. Determined to help Samantha make a hit with her in-laws, Aunt Clara uses her witchcraft to whip up a feast for dinner. Thinking that Samantha has done the cooking, Phyllis becomes quite upset. Although Samantha warns him to be tactful, Darrin makes Aunt Clara feel she is not wanted. After Aunt Clara's departure, Samantha gets into an argument with Darrin, during which Phyllis learns Aunt Clara cooked the dinner. When Samantha admits she is not a good housekeeper, Phyllis, who felt she was being pushed aside, knows she is going to love her daughter-in-law. Darrin persuades Aunt Clara to return and the evening ends happily for all.
