Plot[]

Gladys catches Samantha and her magic at work when she is rearranging pictures. Samantha convinces Gladys that she is the one doing the magic by ESP (extra sensory perception). Gladys goes crazy with the notion that she has "powers", so Samantha sets up a séance to scare her. Using her magic, Samantha creates ghosts and turns Abner into a pile of dust. Gladys swears to give up her "powers" to bring Abner back, and Samantha returns him to his original form.
