I can’t think of a better way to celebrate Mother’s Day than watching Bewitched. I watched it with my mother, she watched it with her mother, and one of the central relationships is – despite them having fantastical powers – one of the best TV depictions of a relationship between an adult daughter and her mom.
It’s not mired in remorse or resentment like you always see in dramas, the mother isn’t ditzy or sweetly old fashioned like in sentimental comedies. Samantha and Endora are both fully realized characters as individuals, and their personalities dictate the style of the frustrations and joys that come with their love for each other. In the later seasons of the show, both of them were painted with pretty broad strokes and a lot of the stories were rehashed from earlier episodes, but in the first two seasons, both witches and the business of being a mother and daughter were wonderfully nuanced.
The episode we’re watching today introduces two new characters to the Bewitched universe. The first is Cousin Serena, a dual-role for Elizabeth Montgomery, and a fun addition to her extended witchy family. The second is baby Tabitha, who transforms the mothering dynamics in a pretty significant way.
For all of the second season so far, Samantha has been pregnant. It’s been pretty smooth sailing, apart from briefly losing her powers thanks to a black Peruvian rose, and that time Endora gave Darrin all the discomforts of pregnancy because he wasn’t being sympathetic. (He deserved it.) It all coincided with Elizabeth Montgomery’s real life pregnancy with her second child. Her first pregnancy had also been while she was filming Bewitched, but the network thought it was inappropriate for newlyweds to have a baby in the first year. I don’t know why.
But this is it.
The big day for a lot of people.
Darrin is helping Samantha down the stairs at home. She’s wearing a cute coat, holding a pair of gloves and a matching handbag because it was the ‘60s, and she’s got high heels on. She’s probably used a spell to reduce the swelling in her ankles, or to make the heels as comfy as slippers or something, and that’s totally fine and nobody should tell Darrin. He’s a little bit of an anti-magic fanatic.
Plus he’s extra frazzled today. He’s hurrying his wife – who is capable of teleportation should a serious emergency arise – out the front door, without even a call to his parents to let them know he’s headed to the hospital. He asks Samantha if she needs to call her mother, but she just smiles and says that there’s no need to. Endora will be there.
She also asks if he likes the name Derek for a boy, and I think Derek Stephens sounds like the kid who picks on nerds and is the second best player on the lacrosse team, so I vote no. Darrin says she can call it whatever she likes as long as she gets in the car.
The telephone rings just as they get to the front door, and the totally-relaxed Samantha goes to answer it, while her husband makes frantic gestures to alert her to the fact that she’s having a baby. Thanks, Darrin, but chances are good she knows all about it.
On the phone is Sam’s cousin, Serena. We see her from behind at first, lounging elegantly with a long cigarette holder in hand. Samantha is delighted to hear from her, but explains that she’s just about to deliver her baby.
“Oh. Well, that kills lunch.” Serena drawls, and suggests popping over to see Samantha at the hospital that afternoon.
Using her witchy know-how, Samantha’s fairly certain that once she gets there, the whole thing will take her about an hour, and the plans are set.
Serena hangs up the phone and we get our first look at her. She’s a sophisticated, raven-haired beauty who’s the spitting image of her cousin.
Elizabeth Montgomery played both roles, and nails it of course. Prior to Bewitched, she’d played more than her fair share of vamps and complicated women, and her acting range is often overlooked because of her success in a fun, frothy sitcom. Which is super unfair, because the acting on Bewitched is pitch perfect for all the recurring characters. Even when Dick York gets replaced with Dick Sargent and they turn Darrin into a total tool who’s obsessed with golf, Dick Sargent is hitting the notes… they’re just not very good ones.
When next we see Dick York’s Darrin, he’s pacing up and down in what they used to call the “Father’s Room” – a special lounge just off the maternity ward. He’s chomping down pretty hard on a pipe, and another guy who’s in there with him asks him jovially if this is his first kid.
Turns out the pipe belongs to this guy, not Darrin, and Darrin just randomly picked it up and started smoking it. He’s nervous, you see. The other guy is pretty relaxed about things, and tries to get the ever-frazzled Darrin to calm down (pretty tricky, unless you’re the human equivalent to Valium) by asking if he wants a boy or a girl.
Darrin says it doesn’t matter, as long as it’s mortal. The other guy looks surprised, and rightly so, because if you don’t know what Darrin’s talking about, that’s kind of creepy.
“I mean as long as it’s human,” Darrin explains with a wry laugh.
The other guy excuses himself to get a cup of coffee, and that’s probably for the best. Because, just as Darrin is starting to wear a new tread in the floor, Endora pops in. She looks very chic, apart from the medical mask, but she’s got that on because she just came from the delivery room.
Darrin seems surprised that she would be in there with Sam.
“I thought it was a mother’s place,” Endora answers with an edge of challenge to her voice, but Darrin doesn’t really care, he just doesn’t know anything about this stuff. Or womanhood in general, really. But he tries.
Endora assures him that only Samantha knew she was there, and everything is wonderful.
“She just presented me with the most beautiful granddaughter.”
Darrin’s face softens and his eyes get all big and sparkly, and asks if this means he’s the father of a girl, and then he asks after Sam, and then he seems so excited that it was a baby girl that it’s all super sweet. We should all stop giving Darrin such a hard time. And then we get my favourite exchange of the episode:
“Endora, I don’t know what to do first, hug you or offer you a cigar!”
“There’s no other choice?” She asks, raising an eyebrow and curling her lip.
The proud, newly minted father bursts into tears and proudly declares how happy he is to have a daughter, which is 100% the right reaction in witch circles. Endora finds herself overcome with the emotion of the day, and summons two handkerchiefs for them to cry into.
It’s nice to see Endora’s warm side. Usually we just see her fierce protectiveness, or her hilarious but also totally inappropriate pun-based temper. Of course, the moment of vulnerability doesn’t last long, because soon she’s telling Darrin how wonderful the baby’s sense of humour is. When the doctor slapped her to make her cry, she turned around and slapped him right back!
Darrin looks crestfallen and confused, and Endora quickly relents and assures him that she’s just teasing.
There’s a semi-truce this episode, and Darrin keeps blowing it by being paranoid. It gets worse/funnier a little later.
Hey, let’s go check on the woman of the hour! Samantha is in her hospital bed, looking as relaxed and glowing as only someone who used witchcraft to speed along her labour could. Of course, the mysteries and complexities of childbirth were unknown to the average 1960’s ad executive, so Darrin has no idea that it’s not normal for women to have such dry, perfect hair and total lack of discomfort after having a baby.
Nurse Kelton lets him in, and he sees his wife looking all radiant as a summer dawn and whatnot, and Samantha smiles and tells him he looks beautiful. It’s a soft, tender moment in a soft, tender episode that so far has had no zany misunderstandings. Huh. Well, let’s not forget that Serena is on her way…
Oh, and the head nurse who opened the door for Papa Stephens? She’s being played by Eve Arden! Eve Arden is best known, according to an informal poll conducted at the bingo hall the other night, for her role as the principal of Rydell High in Grease. That’s dumb, because not only was she a ground-breaking comic actress on her radio series Our Miss Brooks, she was also one of the most notable stars to transfer her radio success to television. She should be best known for being Eve Arden. (I love her so much. I should do an Eve Arden week or a blogathon or something.)
Nurse Kelton tells the swooning parents that she’ll go get their new little girl, and leaves them to continue making goo-goo eyes at each other. They just keep going over how happy and stunned they are to have a baby girl. Good job, guys, enjoy never sleeping again!
I’ve always liked that their first kid was a girl. Later, they have a second child, Adam, who inherits his father’s capacity for blandness because by then the Dick-switch has gone down. But it seems right that this line of self-assured lady witches keeps going. And, even though Sam is an only child, Endora is a first born daughter with a younger brother, so maybe that’s just how it goes. Magic charms and blessings and so forth. You never know.
Baby Tabitha herself makes her first appearance snuggled in Nurse Kelton’s arms. Except, it should be noted for plot purposes, she doesn’t actually have a name yet. We just know what it is because this is a show from fifty years ago, so spoiler tags don’t even cross our minds with this kind of thing.
Also, a note on the spelling of Tabitha. In the credits for this episode, it’s spelled Tabatha, and but had the more familiar spelling in the script. It remained Tabatha in the credits and Tabitha in the scripts until the fourth season, when it was finally changed all around to Tabitha. Settling matters once and for all, except for Bewitched historians who still spell it both ways, but they shouldn’t because in a 1967 interview with Screen Stories, Elizabeth Montgomery said:
“Tabitha is the name I picked for the daughter Dick York and I were supposed to have, when I was actually pregnant on the show, just like Lucy Ball was a few years before me, except that I had a son in real life when ‘my time’ came instead of a daughter. But, somehow or other, her name came out ‘Tabatha’ on the credit roll, and that’s the way it’s been ever since. Honestly, I shudder every time I see it. It’s like a squeaky piece of chalk scratching on my nerves.”
Samantha gets to hold her little girl, and this ain’t no fake TV doll baby, this is a real kid who tries to grab her fingers and everything. That’s always good because, first of all, real babies are cute, and second of all, it doesn’t suck people out of the moment.
Darrin brings up the subject of names, and Samantha mentions that Endora suggested Tabitha. Ever the master of tact, Darrin makes a slightly horrified face. It’s the wrong face to make, because Samantha is disappointed, but she shrugs it off and suggests that they come up with something else. He’s worried about doing it quick, because he doesn’t want his daughter going around unlabelled and points to the little bracelet on her wrist.
Nurse Kelton is dropping off a fresh pitcher of drinking water for Sam, and she helpfully chimes in that there’s no rush. All babies are marked Baby Girl This or Baby Boy That until they go home. She shows Sam the bracelet, and wouldn’t you know? Somehow it says Tabitha Stephens on it.
“Mother!” Samantha mouths at Darrin, while Nurse Kelton checks the bracelet for herself and declares that this needs checking into. Hospital policy should never be tampered with.
The nurse scoops up Tabitha and says that it’s time for her to go back to the nursery, much to Samantha’s disappointment. It’s also time for Darrin to scoot, much to his disappointment, but – as Nurse Kelton tells us – Samantha’s “had enough excitement for one day.”
Our two glowing new parents have thirty seconds to kiss each other goodbye. (Nurse Kelton, it turns out, is a very professional, rule-focused person.) On his way out the door, Darrin just has one quick question for his wife:
“Is she or isn’t she?”
Regarding Tabitha being a witch.
Good god, Darrin. Enjoy the blessed moment for five minutes without bringing your harebrained prejudice into it!
Samantha doesn’t know what Tabitha’s deal is yet, they both have to wait and see.
Darrin takes off, and Sam settles in with a copy of Dr. Benjamin Spock’s Baby and Child Care. But before she can get into it, Endora apparates onto the edge of the bed next to hers, all full of warm congratulations.
“And how is little Tabitha?” Endora asks, smiling from ear to ear.
Gotta tread lightly here. Everyone’s emotions are on overload because of the baby. Samantha opts to gently inform her mother that a name hasn’t been decided yet.
“I don’t care what you call her,” Endora says.
“You don’t?!” Samantha is stunned.
“No. Whatever you call her, I shall call her Tabitha.”
(Fun personal story: My grandmother had a Great Aunt who was an absolute Victorian battleaxe. She was a lot like Endora in personality, and she was very fond of the name Barbara. My great grandmother came from a family where all the girls had names that began with the letter J, and there was a thing about all of this, but in the end, a compromise was reached. My grandmother was named Jacqueline Barbara. The Great Aunt called her Barbara all the time. Didn’t even acknowledge that another name was in play. Women will do this, is what I’m saying; it is not an empty threat.)
Samantha says that she quite likes the name, but she and Darrin would like to decide for themselves. Endora lets it go (temporarily) and changes the subject. She changes the room, too. With a flourish of her arms, the pristine hospital room is full of beautiful, grand floral arrangements.
Unfortunately, the hospital has a rule about too many flowers in the rooms, and Samantha is just in the process of explaining this to her mother and thanking her for the gesture, when Nurse Kelton checks back in. Way to unknowingly step into the realm of the supernatural, Nurse Kelton, because Endora does not care about the masquerade of keeping mortals ignorant of magic. The lady does what she wants.
And, oh snap, this episode has a comedic back and forth between Eve Arden and Agnes Moorehead! It’s great. There’s no way to recap its essence and do it justice, it has to be seen. But, the gist of the story beat is that Endora finds Nurse Kelton to be overbearing and bossy about arbitrary things, and Nurse Kelton wants the flowers out of the room and Endora out of the room for Samantha’s well-being according to regulations. Endora can come back this afternoon.
They’re an even match, which delights Samantha, and annoys Endora. While Nurse Kelton’s back is turned, she disappears out of the room with an angry flourish, leaving Samantha to make an excuse about her mother “popping out.” An old stand-by.
Nurse Kelton says she’s sorry if she hurt Endora’s feelings, but her number one priority is looking after Samantha, and Samantha needs a rest. She just gave birth, after all, and that’s no walk in the park.
Sam likes Nurse Kelton, and it’s hard not to agree with her. So let’s hope the good nurse isn’t irreparably damaged by magic goings-on.
Of course, the revolving door of guests isn’t done with quite yet, and as soon as Nurse Kelton and all the flowers are gone, Serena makes her entrance.
In later episodes, once her character gets a little goofier, Serena travels from place to place not with a flick of her wrist like Endora or a small flourish like Samantha, but with a wild go-go dance looking gesture. Here, though, she has a very interesting fade-in as she walks, like she’s a ghost that simply passes through doors between worlds. It’s kind of spooky when coupled with the dark hair, and the careful, sultry walk Elizabeth Montgomery does. It’s very old-fashioned glamour witch.
I like all versions of Serena, but there is a distinct change in vibe later on.
The two cousins are delighted to see one another and crack jokes about how pretty they look, what with them being virtually identical.
Meanwhile, over at the nursery observation window thing that looks like a baby laboratory to me every time I see one, Darrin is knocking on the glass and waving at his little girl when Endora suddenly appears beside him. First order of business? Complaining that no one is tending to her grandchild.
Darrin tells her that the nurses say crying is good for newborns.
Endora gushes over how pretty Tabitha looks, and says it’s lucky that she takes after Samantha.
“I think there’s a little of me in there, too,” Darrin says with a smile.
“Yes, but the wrinkles will disappear.”
Apparently, Darrin meant that she seems to have dark hair like his. Endora says that’s just baby fuzz or a weird shadow or something, Tabitha is going to look exactly like Samantha. She’ll prove it to him, if he’s going to be difficult. Darrin wants to know how she’d manage that.
With witchcraft, Darrin.
All she’d do is transform Tabitha into a young woman for a minute or two, they’d have a good look at her face, turn her back into a baby and that would be that. Darrin flips out and starts threatening her about using magic on his daughter; Endora calls him Derek, arranges a temporary truce for when they’re in front of the baby, and reminds him to phone his parents and tell them they are now grandparents.
She can get a lot done in two lines of dialogue.
Darrin is suspicious that Endora would care about his parents being told anything ever, and even though he goes to make the phone call, he watches her from the corner of his eye on the way out, certain that she’s up to something.
He’s right, but it’s nowhere near as sinister as he thinks.
Pop quiz: You have magic powers. There is a tiny chubby baby you want to hold. What do you do as soon as nobody is around?
Endora bundles up her granddaughter and takes off with her for a little visit. Nothing worrying to anyone but the hospital staff, and I’m sure that back in the Middle Ages when they wrote of witches stealing infants, they didn’t know it was usually like this.
Today’s episode is called “And Then There Were Three” in order to let everyone reading the TV Guide know that it was the big event. Now, on the one hand, it means there are three members of the new and expanding Stephens clan. On the other hand, it means that there are three generations of witches on the show. Endora is looking at this solely through the lens of the last one.
Is she prepared for the possibility that the baby is a regular person with no magic? I think so. She has an obvious preference in the matter, as does Darrin, but I’m pretty sure that if Tabitha turned out mortal, she’d be a happy little girl with a lot of adventures supplied by Grandmama.
Back to Samantha and Serena, still hanging out in Samantha’s hospital room. Serena announces that she’d like to leave a present for the new baby, something fun but also practical. Like a centaur bodyguard. Sam vetoes the centaur and suggests that Serena go buy a rattle with money.
Serena thinks that’s so crazy it’s charming, and so off she goes. But not without leaving Samantha with a gift of her own. A room full of beautiful, grand flower displays!
Did you know standard practice for after a witch gives birth is to make her sleep in a botanical garden?
Sam thanks Serena for the gesture and tries to tell her about the hospital rules before Nurse Kelton comes back, but Serena says Nurse Kelton already tried to stop her outside. Poor Nurse Kelton, if she’d been lazy and bad at her job, none of this would have to happened to her.
She’s a frog now. Serena pulls the new Nurse Kelton out of her pocket, to Samantha’s frustration and instant demand that she be turned back into a person. Serena tells her cousin not to get worked up, and quickly returns Nurse Kelton to her usual form.
After a moment’s disorientation, the first thing Nurse Kelton does is scold Samantha and Serena for having flowers in the room again. And then for Serena being in here. Do people not understand that Samantha needs to rest?!
Serena makes the flowers disappear in the middle of the nurse’s lecture, and Sam decides to pretend that there never were any flowers. She seems sorry about it, but also like she can’t think of another option. Serena helpfully adds that she never saw any flowers, and Samantha tries to tell Nurse Kelton to let the whole thing go.
Nurse Kelton decides that the job is getting to her, and it doesn’t help matters that Serena suddenly disappears to go shopping. With a look of calm but definite alarm, Nurse Kelton leaves Sam to get some sleep. Sam falls back on her pillow and makes the concerned face of somebody whose family is wrecking up new baby day.
Being just as inclined to see a cute new baby as the majority of us, Serena heads over to the nursery. But Tabitha’s little plastic bed is empty because her grandmama has absconded with her. Serena shrugs and heads on her way, but passes by a guy on his way back to the nursery. It’s Darrin, turns out, but Serena has never met Darrin, and she just has a quick question. Does he know of any toy stores nearby where she can buy a rattle?
At first he cheerfully tells her that Tippet’s Toy Store is just a couple of blocks from the hospital, but then he gets nervous and starts examining her face. Serena, understandably, finds this weird and asks what his deal is. He asks her if they’ve met somewhere before, and she tells him that’s a musty old pick-up line and takes off.
Serena’s love life, we learn later, is a total minefield. The best relationship she ever has is with a dude she meets through a computer dating service, and it turns out they’re both lying to each other about everything so they break up.
Over Darrin’s shoulder as he watches Serena go with some puzzlement, Nurse Kelton is discovering the missing baby and chewing out the candy striper in charge of the nursery. Darrin notices the commotion and starts knocking on the glass demanding to know where his baby is.
Nurse Kelton quickly comes out to calm him, and assures him that his baby must be “around here somewhere.” She’s had a tough, weird day, so we’ll excuse that this is a completely unhelpful thing to say.
Darrin decides that Endora must’ve turned Tabitha into a young lady like she said, and Serena – a dark haired ringer for Samantha – must be his daughter. Never mind that if Endora did turn her granddaughter into a young lady, chances are good she wouldn’t just abandon her to walk around the hospital by herself. Samantha would kill her.
Poor Serena is then accosted by Darrin, who insists that he’s her “daddy. Me Da-da. Da-da!” And orders her back into her bassinet. She calmly asks him if he’s a psychiatric patient, because Serena, of all people, is winning the logic points today.
When he orders her back to the nursery, though, her defiant streak makes an appearance. She orders him back to the nursery, and her orders stick.
He appears right next to Nurse Kelton, with no warning and a pacifier in his mouth. Nice one, Serena.
Nurse Kelton demands to know what he thinks he’s doing, and Darrin quickly apologizes, tells her he’s in the wrong room, and scrams. Confused, Nurse Kelton asks the candy striper – Miss Foster, her name turns out to be – if she happened to see a fully grown man sucking on a binky just now. Miss Foster was distracted by the babies she was looking after, and quite honestly missed the excitement. Of course, this doesn’t help Nurse Kelton’s impression that she’s going a little loopy these days.
Meanwhile, Endora and Samantha are bonding with Tabitha and having a wonderful time, even though Sam knows that they really shouldn’t be breaking the rules. She’s just telling her mother that they should get Tabitha back to the nursery, when Nurse Kelton makes her way in.
“Where did you get that baby?!” She shakes her head at Endora.
“From the nursery. She was crying.” Endora answers, rocking Tabitha defensively.
Nurse Kelton threatens to report Endora to the authorities, and Samantha tells both of them to cool it. She explains that her mother means well, but she’s a little… eccentric.
This smooths things over for now, and the nurse takes Tabitha back where she belongs, leaving Endora and Samantha to have that classic mother-daughter conversation “don’t make excuses for me, because I wasn’t doing anything wrong.” Luckily, we don’t have to sit through any of that, because it would have been a little too real.
Two blocks away, at Tipton’s Toy Store, Serena is test driving rattles by giving them a good shake. She looks amused by the shopping process, but this isn’t contradicting Darrin’s theory that she’s a baby in the body of a woman. Darrin has followed her, by the way, and is spying on her from among the doll display, when the manager of the toy store strikes up a conversation with him.
Local businessmen probably do themselves a favour by keeping track of who’s in advertising around town, and I think McMann and Tate (the firm where Darrin works) has done a few campaigns for Tipton’s. I know that they certainly do a few in the future. Anyway, the manager asks him what’s new, and Darrin says “nothing.”
You had a baby, Darrin? This morning.
The conversation changes direction pretty fast, though, because the manager notices the elegant mysterious brunette checking out the rattles, and he checks her out from afar.
Darrin doesn’t care for this wolfish behaviour, and threatens to punch the store manager in the mouth. This is probably Darrin’s enchanted adult daughter this guy is talking about! The nerve!
Then Darrin decides to go yell at Serena again, because his whole approach has been working super well from all perspectives, but she’s had enough. She turns his cloths into a leftover indian chief costume from a Western, and leaves him stranded in the toy shop with a crowd of tittering onlookers.
For some reason, Darrin decides to try and explain his reasoning to the salesman (not his friend from before) by going into how that vampy brunette is actually his daughter, and all of this is a hilarious misunderstanding. Before somebody calls the cops, Endora finds him and bails him out by saying he’s a whack-a-doodle relative of hers. “A distant relative.” And mentions that he’s harmless, but every family has one.
Darrin asks to have a word with her in private, where he outlines his theory that she’s changed Tabitha into a grown woman. Endora tries to tell him that he’s completely out to lunch on this one, but he just grinds his heels in, says some nasty things, and demands that she take him to his daughter. So she zaps him into the hospital nursery, where baby Tabitha is supposed to be. Darrin doesn’t have the mindset to notice that Serena isn’t there at all, and it doesn’t help matters that Nurse Kelton is standing next to him when he appears.
Nurse Kelton, for her part, calmly asks Darrin if he’s really there. He shakes his head and makes his exit, while Nurse Kelton calmly calls a doctor to arrange for a psychiatric workup.
Eve Arden is slaying it at this zen unravelling gag. It’s all in the eyes.
Darrin goes busting into Samantha’s hospital room, no doubt to get her help with all the magic, which is something he should’ve considered doing sooner than this. There he finds his wife holding their baby with her cousin Serena dropping off a rattle, and he still doesn’t think he’s wrong yet.
Serena doesn’t give anybody a chance to clear anything up, though, because as soon as she sees creepy psych patient stalker man coming at her again, she pops him into a straightjacket and gag. Samantha asks why she did that, and Serena tells her it’s a long story, but not to worry, the authorities can take care of him. Bye Samantha, bye Samantha’s baby! And with that, Serena makes her exit.
Once she’s gone, Sam demands to know from Darrin what’s going on. Darrin’s gagged, though, and poor Nurse Kelton who has the worst luck in history when it comes to this stuff apart from Dr. Bellows on I Dream of Jeannie, comes in to find her mysterious indian chief from before in a straightjacket. She decides to pretend that he’s just not there, because of course he’s not.
The episode wraps up with Darrin telling Nurse Kelton that he’s a serial practical joker, and she’s not going insane. Nurse Kelton forgives him, but just because she’s so relieved to have her sanity intact. She tells him he’s got one minute with Samantha before she kicks him out, and he’s got to behave. Once she’s gone, Endora pops in and asks Darrin if he found his daughter.
“Oh, yes,” he nods, “Tabitha’s fine.”
Samantha and Endora exchange bewildered looks. Did he say Tabitha?!
Darrin explains that after all the awful things he’s said to Endora today, he owes her a good turn. Besides, the baby looks like a Tabitha.
Endora is so thrilled, she decides to give the three of them some privacy and pops out.
Samantha looks at her baby and says she’s pretty sure that she’s got her nose.
Darrin asks if we’re talking about symbolic supernatural noses, and Samantha tells him that everyone will just have to wait and see.
“Honey, you’re a witch. Can’t you tell anything just by looking at her?” Darrin asks, with an unseemly note of desperation.
“Only that I love her,” Samantha says.
Good answer, Sam.
Happy Mother’s Day, everybody!
