Pleasure O'Riley is the twenty-fifth episode of the first season of Bewitched. The episode was completed by January 25, 1965.


Darrin and Samantha have a new neighbor, Pleasure O'Riley. She is a sexy and vivacious model who is hiding from her overly jealous ex-boyfriend, the famous pro fullback Thor "Thunderbolt" Swenson. She calls on the Stephenses late one night because she needs protection from Thor, who found her new address. Darrin agrees to help her. When Thor comes to look for Pleasure, Samantha infers that Darrin is interested in Pleasure. When Thor goes after Darrin, Samantha turns Darrin into an elderly woman, who Thor thinks is Darrin's grandmother. Thor goes to the Kravitzes' house thinking Abner is Pleasure's gentleman friend. Incensed, Thor knocks Abner out and Gladys screams. The Kravitzes and Thor end up on the front page of the morning paper. Pleasure's lawyer put a restraining order on Thor to keep him away, but not before he takes her to the mayor's office for an honor she has received.

Thor punches Abner and makes the front page.

  • The headline in The Star-Dispatch is "Passion's Plaything".
  • Pleasure's address is 1162 Morning Glory Circle as seen in George the Warlock. Later in the series, it is 1123 Morning Glory Circle, as disclosed when the house was purchased by Elaine Hanson ("Weep No More My Willow"), and by Mr. Ferguson ("The Return of Darrin the Bold").
