Love Means Having to Say You're Sorry is ninth episode of the fourth season and the eighty fifth overall episode of Sabrina the Teenage Witch.



Since getting dumped by Harvey after kissing Josh, Sabrina starts to think of ways to get Harvey to forgive her. However, since Harvey started dating another girl, patching things up with him gets difficult for her. At hearing Harvey will be spending Thanksgiving with Colette, Sabrina decides to literally go back to the drawing board to magically rewrite what happened. Eventually, Sabrina and Harvey straighten things out and start dating again.

Salem starts taking what happened harder than Sabrina but soon gets comforted when Hilda and Zelda announce their intention of making mortal Thanksgiving dinner to cheer Sabrina up but trouble arises when they conjure real pilgrims to do the cooking. The pilgrims, however, are afraid of witches.
