Darrin: I've been selfish, stupid, and unreasonable, and I want to ask for your forgiveness.You can lament Samantha's lack of consciousness; you can decry her supposed submission to patriarchy; but she knows what she wants a marriage to be. During that episode Darrin gets a taste of being a warlock, of having one's life enriched effortlessly. Samantha is not happy with his turn.
Samantha: I don't know what you're talking about.
Well, when we were married, you tried to fit yourself into my scheme of life.
I love you. I want you to be happy.
But what did I want? I wanted you to give up everything that was natural to you. I said, "No more witchcraft. Give it up." That's what I said. Isn't that what I said?
Yes, but I understand.
That's because you kept an open mind. But not me, no. My mind was closed, just like a clamshell. But that's all over.
Yes. From now on I want you to use that power whenever and wherever you want to.
Darrin — You don't really mean that?
I most certainly do. Why have I said to you, "No witchcraft. Don't help me, don't help yourself." Why? I ask you, Why? Well, I'll tell you why: It was ego. If I couldn't do it I didn't want you to do it. If I couldn't give something to you I didn't want you to have it. Ego! Pure ego. Simple as that.
Darling, that's not ego — that's the way it should be.
