Main Story: Sabrina recently moved to a new town to begin her high school days and to live with her two eccentric aunts, Hilda and Zelda. The first scene showed Sabrina levitating while in deep sleep the day before her birthday. Not only is she starting out in a new school the day after her 16th birthday, but her aunts inform her that she is now a full-fledged witch with newly awakened magical powers that she must learn about and to get her license to practice her magic. Her aunts tell her that they're witches, her father is a witch, and that her mother is mortal. We get introduced to the teacher Mr. Poole. The first lesson is to dissect a frog, but Sabrina instead brings it to life by pointing at it (not believing that she's a witch), and it leaps off of the table. After Libby tells Sabrina to use the freak's bathroom, she unknowingly casts a spell on her and she smears lipstick all over her face. Back at home, her aunts present her, still not believing that she's a witch, with a book which contains an animated picture of her father, who is really in a different realm. Still thinking that it's a joke, Sabrina decides to walk into her room, but Salem the cat asks her "can you wait 'til I finish my milk?" Salem, can talk, but that's because it's not really a natural-born cat, rather, a human who is being punished for attempting to take over the world. She leaves, but the levitated book follows her into her room. Her father in the book explains to her that she can't see her mother within the next two years or she will turn into a ball of wax. Sabrina enters the kitchen and tells her aunts that she believes that she is a witch. Sabrina tries a trick and turns an orange into a pineapple instead of an apple. The aunts tell Sabrina to be very careful pointing her finger at people. At school the next day, Sabrina loses her temper at the cafeteria when Libby spills some juice on her lap, points at her, a thunder storm erupts, and Libby is turned into a pineapple. Sabrina takes Libby the pineapple home and shows her aunts what she did. Aunt Zelda turns Libby back into a girl. Wondering why she's in Sabrina's house, Libby threatens to tell the whole school that she's a freak. Sabrina must then appeal to the Council of Witches, which is ten million light years away, for permission to turn time back and relive the day all over again. Her aunts tell her about a shortcut to Drell, one of the council members, by entering the linen closet on the second floor. Sabrina enters the Witches Council, comprised of Cassandra, Drell, and the silent Skippy (Teller, Penn's partner in the comedy magic shows). After explaining her case, she is told to leave while they review her case. The next day, the counsil denys her request. Hilda tells her to toughen up while Sabrina is forced to go back to school again. Sabrina says that "I guess every school needs a weird kid. Might as well be me." Zelda tells Hilda that she bets that Hilda can convince Drell to change his mind. After Zelda tells her to toughen up, Hilda enters the linen closet to enter the Witches Council and marches inward to intervene with the head of the Council, Drell, whom she used to date. Soon afterwards, Sabrina finds herself re-living the day, this time acing a history test, making a friendly date with shy hunk Harvey, and harmlessly deflecting Libby's malice. She makes friends with Jenny and Harvey at school. Libby the stuck-up cheerleader enters with juice on the tray, and just before Libby spills the juice on her, Sabrina points her finger, and the juice instead squirts Libby's face. Back at home, Sabrina tells her aunts that she loves being a witch, she's going out to the movies with Jenny and Harvey, the jocks think she's cool, and that she's normal.

She takes a bite, then when Sabrina asks her a question about what she's been saying about Jenny and her behind her backs. Libby gets under the truth sprinkle spell and says that she told lies that her father's in jail, that Jenny cheats on taxes, and that Sabrina had a nose job. Libby tells Sabrina that it was Jill, one of Libby's friends. who made up the nose job story, and Cee Cee, another one of Libby's friends, about kissing a poster of somebody every night.

Main Story: Sabrina casts a spell to create a box of rollerblades out of a shoebox, but she creates a box of rollerblahs instead. Hilda walks in and tells her that she can't do that because of strict copyright laws ever since the 70s when the witches overdid the Gucci. Hilda tells Sabrina to get a job to earn money for the rollerblades. Sabrina gets a job babysitting a cranky toddler. Harvey asks Sabrina for a study date, but Sabrina has a babysitting job, and she still asks him to come over to the baby's house to study. Later that night, Harvey enters the baby's house and begins studying with Sabrina. Harvey gets hungry after five seconds, so Sabrina whips up some candy bars and drinks for him. Back to studying, but the baby starts to cry. Sabrina goes upstairs, then Harvey flips on the TV to watch the World Series. Sabrina comes down, then we learn that Harvey wants to be a dentist. The baby starts crying again, then Sabrina picks him up and holds him while walking around his bedroom, and then she puts him down. While holding him, she tells the baby to "be a big boy" three times. She comes back downstairs, then we hear a thump upstairs. Sabrina goes back upstairs. She enters and is shocked to see that she accidentally cast a spell on baby, who has turned into a grown man. Sabrina has accidentally cast a spell on the baby by telling him to "be a big boy" three times and she didn't know that's what she did to cast the spell. Unable to change him back into a baby, Sabrina tries to keep Harvey interested in the baseball game by casting spells on the game inside the TV. Sabrina sneaks the grown baby out of the house behind Harvey's back. Sabrina brings the grown baby to her house, and then asks Salem for advice on how to change him back into a baby. She bring the grown baby to her high school to meet up with her aunts who were attending Parents Day at her high school and meets up with her aunts who were in the classroom of Mr. Pool. Mr. Pool leaves because he had to go to a bake sale, helping Sabrina luck out. She tells the aunts that the grown baby is the one she's babysitting and her aunt Zelda tells her to reverse the spell, but she says she didn't mean to cast a spell she didn't know she cast. Zelda tells her to try to figure out what she did. Then the grown baby said, "be a big boy." Sabrina confirms it. Zelda says she bet she said it three times. Hilda says that she cast a passion spell, saying something three times in a row causes the spell to cast a spell to make it happen. Zelda casts a passion spell to make Randy Travis appear. Zelda tells Sabrina to cast the passion spell by saying the phrase "be a big boy" three times in reverse. After nothing happens, the grown baby wanders out into the bake sale in another class and eats some treats. Meanwhile, Harvey is still glued to the TV watching the World Series. Sabrina brings the grown baby back to the baby's house and leads him upstairs and back into his bedroom and into his crib. Sabrina puts the grown baby back to bed, comes downstairs, casts a spell on the game inside the TV to end the game, then gets back to studying. The baby's parents arrive back home, but we don't know if the baby has returned to normal yet. The mother and father go upstairs to see the grown baby asleep, but the baby was covered enough to not tip them off that there was a sleeping adult instead of a baby. The parents close the door, then the baby wakes up, takes a drink, then returns back into being a baby. Back at the house, Randy and the aunts help each other finish a jigsaw puzzle. Sabrina conjures up Eddie Cibrian by casting a passion spell, then directs him to Travis and her aunts to help them with the jigsaw puzzle. Then Sabrina says Brad Pitt three times, then the screen goes black.

Main Story: Salem has to do community service that day as part of his punishment for attempting global dominance. After Zelda leaves, Salem accuses Sabrina of using her magic to do nothing but change her own clothes and make brussel sprouts disappear. Sabrina tells Salem that she'll use her magic to do three nice things before the end of school. Salem warns her to face the consequences or terrible things will happen. At school, Jenny and Libby were competeting against each other for sophomore class president. While Libby gloats and tells Jenny that she's a loser, then leaves, Jenny wishes she could win to make a different. After Jenny leaves, Sabrina casts a spell on the ballot box. Sabrina meets up with Harvey in the locker hall. He directs her to Randy the Destroyer, a football player on the high school team. Harvey is trying to bulk up by drinking a protein shake so that he can get off the bench and be a starting runningback, and he tells her that unless Randy gets injured or Harvey bulks up, he stays on the bench. Harvey leaves. Sabrina casts a spell causing Randy to slam the locker door on his hand real hard. At Mr. Pool's class, the teacher's lesson is why we can't turn lead into gold. After class, Sabrina meets up with Mr. Pool, who tells her that his life is bitter and he has to not only teach science, but to also do other jobs just to pay the bills, and he still can't afford a new briefcase. When the bitter teacher heads toward the door, Sabrina casts a spell on him, then he thinks that he can possibly turn lead into gold. So, he asks her to leave, comes up with some scribbling on the chalkboard, and concludes what whatever he wrote was something that explains how to turn lead into gold. Back at home, Sabrina meets up with the aunts. She advices Hilda to use magic to help somebody play violin better, but they warn Sabrina not to use magic to change the lives of mortals lives because they don't really know what would make a mortal happy and still can't predict the consequences, and if she did, terrible things would happen. The next day, Principal LaRue announces on the school intercom that Jenny won the election for sophomore class president. Later, Harvey told Sabrina that his football coach told him that he's going start the next day's game on the starting lineup as a runningback. At Mr. Poole's class, he tells the science students that thanks to the miracle of science, he's got a new Ferrari, thanks to his ability to turn lead into gold. Back at home, Hilda comes in and Sabrina tells her that she cast spells on three people in school to help make their wishes come true. The next day at the high school football team, Sabrina learns of her mistake the hard way. First off, Harvey recieves a pass of the football and is injured after being pummelled by opposing teammates. Being a small man, Harvey's right arm is broken and needs medical attention, so an ambulance shows up in the football field. The next day, Jenny tells Sabrina that she can't make a real difference because the student president position is nothing more than a rubber stamp assistant to the principal. She has no authority to address any topics and is in no position to question the choices of powerful men hundreds of miles away. She tells Sabrina she wishes she lost the sophomore class election. Mr. Pool becomes a totally obnoxious blowhard at school. Back at home, Sabrina gets a summons from Drell delivered from the toaster from the Witches Council, demanding that he sees her and her aunts. Sabrina stands before the Witches' Council and is faced with the ominous task of explaining her error to the council. They enter Drell's office. Drell explains the things that happened since Sabrina cast the spells on three people to help them two days earlier. Drell gives some comic relief when he gets some help to turn up the reverb when he says the world "terrible." Drell tells them that two of the consequences regarding the class election and football injury have no global consequences, but the one she cast on Mr. Poole could collapse the global economy and wreak havoc on Drell's T-bills. Sabrina tells Drell that she can fix it, and Drell gives her 24 hours to fix the problems she caused. Hilda knocks it down to 16 hours when Drell asks her out, but she turns him down. The next day, Sabrina meets up with the obnoxiously rich Mr. Poole before class. After the class ends, Sabrina casts a spell to erase Mr. Poole's knowledge of turning lead into gold. At lunch, Jenny announces that she's resigning and that Libby becomes the sophomore class president. Harvey meets up with Sabrina, and he tells her that he's been having a lot of fun not playing football.

Sabrina gets invited to Harvey's party but her aunt Zelda already planned to make her come with them to a family party. Salem suggested that Sabrina make a clone of herself, and send her clone to Harvey's party until she gets there after the family party ends.

So, Sabrina sends a clone to Harvey's party, but the clone agrees to streak in order to liven up the party. Aunt Hilda also makes a copy of her self, and Zelda twigs immediately.

Main Story: Sabrina wants to go to the school dance, but, like other girls, doesn't want to ask him out because she doesn't want to complicate their friendship. Jen hints about the dance when Harvey steps in, then leaves. Harvey says he won't go because school dances aren't his thing. Libby enters and asks Harvey herself, and he says yes. He explains that he has a hard time saying no when he panics. Sabrina decides to skip the dance. Hilda and Zelda hear Sabrina's problem, and decide to use some magic dough called Man Dough to create her own dream date. Sabrina comes down while the dough is still cooking and tells her aunts that she wants to go with Harvey, not Poppin' Fresh. After the dough rises, the man is done, and Chad is born for four hours. Sabrina changes her clothes with her magic, then takes Chad to the school dance. Jenny gets introduced to Chad. Libby and Harvey walk in, and they see Sabrina dancing with Chad. Libby wants to dance, but Harvey doesn't, saying that he don't dance. Libby gets mad and storms off. In the second part, Hilda and Zelda create another date, but that one ends up a cranky middle aged man. They checked the label on the liquid on the optimism, but the label says "hope fades," meaning that he's hopeless, and the man they create is Simon, a sports junkie and wants the TV to watch the sports. Back at the dance, Chad is a tireless dancer and Sabrina was geting tired, so she gets Jen to cut in for Sabrina, then she walks off to meet up with Harvey. Chad comes over and meets Harvey, then hauls Sabrina back to the dance floor. Libby walks back in. Back at home, the sports junkie man isn't giving Hilda much attention on the couch, preferring to watch TV. Zelda's made up man date is fairing better, except that he's a milk junkie. Sabrina leads Chad to sit down on the chairs, then Libby intercepts and meets Chad. Sabrina chats with Harvey. Another song comes on and Sabrina casts a spell on Harvey, and he takes off on the dance floor. Even Chad admits that Harvey's much better than he. Libby was impressed and wants to dance with Harvey, but he tells her no, then heaves on his own. Sabrina leaves Chad on the dance floor, then goes outside, then meets with Harvey outside. She admits that Chad isn't her type and explains that, after freezing Harvey, admits that she likes him a lot but is afraid to say it while he's not frozen, then unfreezes him, and Harvey asks her for a dance outside. Afterwards, Harvey invites her to play foosball, then as she leaves, he says that he likes her quietly, but is too shy to say it to her face. Back at the dance, Sabrina tells Chad that he's not the one, but Chad says it's okay if she likes Harvey. She invites Libby to dance with him instead. Sabrina and Harvey leave the school dance building. Back at home, Hilda gets out a rolling pin from the kitchen to end her dud date. and throws him, now just a doughball, into the trash. Back at the dance, Chad was dancing so hard that he begins coughing up flour, then storms off outside, needing preservatives.

Main Story: at school, Mr. Poole enters his science classroom and begins class, but suddenly his entire body begins to itch so much that he leaves abruptly. A substitute teacher named Vesta enters to take over the class, but doesn't have much of a clue what she's supposed to be teaching in Poole's classroom. After the class is dismissed, she tells Sabrina to stay after, and they need to talk, she tells her that she is her aunt from her father's side, essentially, a sister of Hilda and Zelda. She takes Sabrina to Paris for a cup of coffee. To get rid of Poole, Vesta tells her that she gave him a 24-hour bug...literally, a giant one. Vesta explains that she lives in another realm called the Pleasuredome. At home, Salem gets a phone call from her high school, and tells the aunts that Sabrina has missed the last five classes. Sabrina comes home a second later and is told by her aunts that she's in big trouble, then after explaining that aunt Vesta took her to Paris and got some new clothes, then Vesta enters. Zelda tells Sabrina to call Jenny to catch up on some homework. Hilda gets a phone call and is invited to go to Orlando to play with the Coniff trio. Zelda says she has to go to Texas that same weekend. Sabrina comes down and says that Jenny gave her the bad news that Sabrina has to read 50 pages by Monday. Hilda and Zelda ask Sabrina if they would like to stay with Vesta in the Pleasuredome for the weekend since they have to leave for the weekend. After explaining that her leaving would help the aunts, Sabrina agrees, then she and Vesta come to the Pleasuredome with the rule: a flashing neon sign saying "No Mortals." Vesta shows her around her place with doors leading to a party, fan, mall, and others. Zelda comes to room 107 for a lecture for a super collider conference, but the janitor has no clue what she's talking about. She hands him a card saying Visual Engineer for the Study of Theoritical Activity, then the janitor says that they should have shortened it to simply Vesta. Aha! She meets up with Hilda in and tells her that Vesta has set them up to get rid of them so she could have Sabrina for the weekend and maybe longer. Hilda was wondering why somebody booked a string trio at Daytona (there was loud noise coming from the race nearby). Back at the Pleasuredome, Sabrina tells Vesta that she has to study, but Vesta wants her to party. Hilda and Zelda enter Vesta's place and demand they take her back home. The two aunts and Vesta argue, then Sabrina tells them that she's staying in Pleasuredome after being told that she has a choice. In the second part, Zelda leads Hilda out, hinting to her that she has a hunch. Back at home, Zelda tells Hilda that if they tell Sabrina that she can't stay, then they're playing into Vesta's hands, instead, they're giving Sabrina a chance to change her mind and to have a little faith, and she will come home. Back at Pleasuredome, Sabrina rode the roller coaster 17 times, saw a Brad Pitt movie, went shoe shopping, and sat in a hot tub. Vesta suggests for Sabrina to star in her rock video. Jenny calls Sabrina using a weird 17-digit area code she got from her aunts, and tells her that she thought they were going to a movie that night. Sabrina tells Jenny that she's stuck in Canada for the weekend, then feels awful that she stood her up. Using some kind of snoop vision, Vesta views her aunts working on a puzzle, then changes channels and sees Salem singing some karaoke, then changes channels to see Harvey dancing and singing, then changes channels and ses Jenny reading a book. Later, Sabrina dresses up for a rock video, then does some singing and dancing, then quits abruptly, telling her that she should be at the movies with Jenny and not a good karaoke singer, and wants to go back home.

She explains that without can'ts and don'ts, it's hard to know where the fun is. Sabrina then leaves to go to the movies with Jenny.

He orders her to take the test at his desk. Sabrina is distracted by her daydreams about Harvey and the class. She doesn't finish the test when time runs out and she flunks. Back at home, Sabrina tells Hilda that she wants a revenge spell. Hilda suggests that she talk to Mr.Rothwell before Sabrina use a just desserts spell as a last resort, but she suggests Hilda talks to him instead. Mr. Rothwell tells Hilda that she got an "F" in the test. Then, Hilda casts a spell, giving him a big butt. Back at home, Sabrina and Hilda begin brewing up a spell for revenge, but Zelda walks in and stops the brew, and the next day, tries to reason with Mr. Rothwell. She talks to him, and his butt grows even bigger, ignoring her pleas for fairness. After her aunts were unable to see reason, the three ladies in full witch garb brew up a revenge spell called just desserts to teach him a few of their own spellbinding lessons. The aunts cackled after finishing the creation. In the second half, Mr. Rothwell walks into class, with his butt back to normal, telling the class that he's late because he's got a speeding ticket, calling it an injustice. Her aunts at home tell Sabrina that the spell is working and he'll find his just desserts in traffic court. In traffic court the next day, the human judge walks out and the aunts replace him for Mr. Rothwell's case with a magical judge, Judge Samuels who's been frozen inside an ice box since 1956 to prevent media bias. A man untouched by CNN is a rarity. Judge Samuels resides as the court is in session. He reads that Mr. Rothwell is charged not only with speeding, as well as violation of the existential code, which is multiple accounts of being mean and unfair. Mr. Rothwell pleads not guilty to both counts, questioning the second charge that was read. The prosecution presented the case. Mr. Rothwell asks who the aunts and Sabrina were, then she tells him that they're the people in the "People vs. Mr. Rothwell" case. Zelda summons Clifford Weaver, who says that Mr. Rothwell has failed him. Mr. Rothwell crossexams him, saying that he helped Clifford, which Clifford says was a lie. Zelda summons up the arresting officer, who says that Mr. Rothwell threw his registration at him and told him he was a jerk. Zelda summons up Sabrina as the next witness to take the stand, saying that he's completely unfair he doesn't like kids, math, teaching, and chalk. The judge asks her if she has proof, but she tells him that she will fear math forever because of Mr. Rothwell's meanness. The people in the case rest. Mr. Rothwell makes a closing statement, saying that life is unfair, telling the judge that he's teaching the kids to get used to that. The judge leaves on a break to decide on the case. He comes back with a decision. The judge finds in relation to the charge on unfairness to the students (the existential code violation), he finds Mr. Rothwell not guilty, but guilty as charged to the speeding charge. The judge waives the $40 fine and instead sentences Mr. Rothwell to spend the rest of his life teaching high school algebra. Case closed. Court is adjourned. The aunts explain to Sabrina that being sentenced to teaching high school algebra is a valuable thing because he teaches a valuable lesson that people are jerks, but if they study hard and not let him get to them, they will pass the class, and then forget it. He's stuck in algebra forever. That's his just desserts.
