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.


Samantha's Aunt Clara comes down the chimney for an unexpected visit on the same day Darrin's parents are visiting. Darrin is worried about the kind of impression Aunt Clara will make on his parents, but agrees with Samantha that they must treat her like a house guest.

Darrin's father, Frank likes Samantha right away, but his mother, Phyllis feels like she's being ignored.

Determined to help Samantha make a hit with her in-laws, Aunt Clara uses her witchcraft to whip up a feast for dinner. Darrin makes Aunt Clara feel unwelcomed, and she decides to leave. Afterward, Samantha gets into an argument with Darrin.

Samantha admits to Darrin's parents that Aunt Clara helped her prepare dinner, and she is still learning how to be a good housekeeper. Darrin persuades Aunt Clara to return and the evening ends happily for all.
