Snob in the Grass is the nineteenth episode of the fourth season and the 125th episode of the Bewitched series. The episode was completed by July 10, 1967.


Darrin has been working late nights on the difficult Webley Foods account. Larry reassigns him to the William J. Sommers account. Mr. Sommers is the father of Sheila Sommers, Darrin's ex-girlfriend. Larry want Darrin to use that connection to get the account.

Meanwhile at home, Endora tries to sow seeds of doubt in Samantha's mind, saying his late nights are because he is seeing another woman. She pops out to go prove her assertions.

Darrin and Larry go to meet Sheila and her father for dinner. When they arrive, they discover that Mr. Sommers will not be coming and Larry soon leaves, much to Darrin's discomfort. Sheila flirts shamelessly with him. A waitress dumps a plate of food in Darrin's lap. It is Endora.

The next morning, Samantha gives Darrin the silent treatment. He tries to explain what actually happened. When Samantha learns that Sheila invited them to dinner, Samantha seizes the opportunity to settle the score with Sheila.

At dinner, Sheila insults Samantha at every opportunity, but Samantha gives as good as she gets. Later, Sheila continues to deride Samantha in front of her guests and accuses Samantha of turning Darrin into a homebody. Samantha reaches her breaking point and sends a bee and a muddy dog Sheila's way. She eventually loses her wig and her sweater unravels. Sheila falls into her father's arms in sobs.

The next day, unbeknownst to her husband, Samantha takes Darrin's layouts to Webley Foods where they are well received. McMann & Tate gets the account after all and Larry sends the Stephenses on a well-deserved lunch.
