I caught an episode the other night on some Nickelodean spin off station targeted towards teens. Let me tell you – did I feel old! All of those commercials, hip newlingo, etc, etc. I have to admit, I was entertained and I told Rob I may have found my new favorite station. Can anyone sense an early life crisis coming on?
For those of you unfamiliar with Sabrina, she is a teenage witch living with her two aunts who are also witches. Apparently there is an Archie comic on which the show is based. I loved Bewitched as a child so perhaps I like Sabrina so much because of nostalgia. On another note of nostalgia, Soleil Moon Frye is now on the show – I love me a little Punky.
There was the funniest episode on the other day, Deliver Us From E-mail. Sabrina’s Aunt Hilda becomes obsessed with knitting. At some point she manages to knit herself into a cocoon. The other Aunt, Zelda, finally confronts her…
The script (yes, at some point google may explode from the amount of information it conjures up):
Int. Spellman living room. It looks like a bombs gone off in it. A wool bomb. Everywhere is littered with woolen products, Hats scarves, sweaters, socks, leg warmers, you name it, itâ€™s there and judging by the skit-a-skit of needles, so is Hilda. Zelda enters.
Zelda– Oh good lord! (Calling up stairs) Hilda! Hilda, we need to talk!
Hilda– (Muffled) Iâ€™m right here.
She looks down at the large pile of maroon wool on the arm chair and spots a pair of eyes looking out and lower down a pair of hands industriously knitting away.
Zelda– This has gone far enough. I demand that you stop, on behalf of sheep everywhere.
Hilda– What are you getting so worked up about?
Zelda– Your new hobby has become a pathology. Youâ€™re addicted to knitting.
Hilda– Zellie, I knit because it relaxes me. I can stop anytime I want to.
Zelda– Look at you! You are knitting alone! You are hiding balls of yarn under yarn cosies! Youâ€™ve knitted yourself into a woolen pod! You are a knitaholic! A knitfomaniac! A knit-wit!
Hilda– A knit-wit? Thatâ€™s cute. Iâ€™m going to knit that on a pillow.
A knitfomaniac! Ha! I love it. I’m going to knit THAT on a pillow. Does this episode repeat itself in our homes every day or what?!
