Finger lickin
Finger Lickin' Flu is the fifteenth episode of the second season and the thirty ninth overall episode of Sabrina the Teenage Witch.


Sabrina comes down with a case of "finger flu" which causes her magic to malfunction and accidentally transfer itself to Mrs. Quick who, angered by Mr. Kraft's scheme to replace the cafeteria lady with indentured students, turns him into a chimpanzee. Meanwhile, Sabrina tries to help Valerie gain self-confidence while Salem fakes illness to get attention and gets more than he bargained for. Hilda and Zelda discover that he is faking his illness and decide to punish him by making him believe that he is really sick.



Guest starring

Hilda and Zelda have just learned Salem is faking illness, and decide to teach him a lesson.

Hilda: "Well Salem, you're temperature is alarmingly high".

Salem: "I'm really sick?"

Hilda: "Yes and that can only mean one thing".

Salem: "More attention and sympathy?"

Hilda: "A nice cold bath".

She conjures up a kitty bath full of water and ice cubes.

Salem: "What?! I'm feeling better! I am NOT an animal!"

Sabrina: "President Clinton went on TV and said you're a big fat stupid-head".

Mr Kraft: "And thats why I'm a Republican".

Sabrina: "Here comes the floor show".

Libby, who has been forced to assume lunch-lady duties, enters the cafeteria as other students laugh at her.

Libby: "It's time to wake up from my nightmare. (She pinches herself) Ow. Time to wake up from my nightmare. (She pinches herself again) Ow".

After Salem finally admitts he was pretending to be sick.

Zelda: "Salem, I hope you learned your lesson. It's wrong for a cat to cry Wolf".

Salem: "I'll never do it again".

Hilda: "Okay".

She and Zelda turn to leave.

Salem: "But I still have that knot, y'know".
