Adam Newlarkin, an old army friend of Darrin's, is staying with Darrin and Samantha temporarily until he finds a job as he has just moved to the city. When Adam seems to be inflicted by a barrage of strange occurrences while at the Stephens house, Samantha believes that he and/or one of his ancestors has been hexed by a spell, especially as Samantha learns Adam and his family are long time residents of Salem. Aunt Clara does some checking for Samantha, and confirms Samantha's suspicion. They also learn that from the hex, Adam will be charged with a criminal offense of stealing a large sum of money unless they can remove the hex by five o'clock in the afternoon the following day. The problem becomes how Darrin, Samantha and Aunt Clara can get Adam to do the triumvirate of unusual tasks required within one day for the hex to be neutralized.
Did You Know?
In the tag Darrin asks Aunt Clara why she collects doorknobs ("because they're there," she replies). Those were actually Marion Lorne
's doorknobs; she really did collect them, and the series' production and prop master utilized this interesting hobby. See more

Well, I certainly appreciate you letting me stay here. I'll try not to be too much bother.
We're glad to have you Adam. It'll be like old times.
Not quite, Darrin. The food we had in the army was never like this.
Why, thank you. You can stay as long as you like.
Well, actually, it won't be more than a couple of days. I have an appointment for a job tomorrow, and if I land it, I'll be looking around for a place of my own.
