It isn't until after they arrive home that Samantha and Tabitha realize that a chimpanzee has followed them from their outing at the park. Although the chimp has no identification, Samantha can tell that he belongs to someone as a pet by the way he acts and the fact that he is dressed. With the chimp unable to tell her where he lives, Samantha decides to turn him into a human. This is exactly what "Harry" wants, he who is tired of being what he believes is an unloved chimp by his owner, and who chose to follow Samantha and Tabitha because he knew they are witches. As such, Harry refuses to divulge who his owner is or where the little boy lives. Harry's emergence is bad timing as two groups unexpectedly show up at the house: Larry with Darrin's newest client, Evelyn Tucker of Brawn Cologne, and her assistant, Bobby Flynn; and Endora. Regardless of an absent Darrin not yet having made his campaign pitch to Miss Tucker, she believes she and Flynn have already come up with a campaign idea... Written by Huggo
