The Witches Council has reversed its position on mixed marriages and decreed that one witch must marry a mortal that year. Young witch Tabitha Stephens has been selected.

Her aunt, Minerva, and the head witch Cassandra, pay Tabitha a visit to encourage her to marry her boss, TV talk-show host Paul Thurston. Unfortunately, that very day, Paul has insulted Tabitha, who is no longer speaking to him. Minvera and Cassandra decide to take matters into their own hands and Cassandra makes a love potion so strong it will even work on witches.

The television station where Tabitha and Paul are employed is having a party. As Tabitha and Paul are making up, Minerva pours the love potion into two punch glasses. But neither Tabitha or Paul wants punch. When Minerva overhears them discussing having some dip, she rushes to spike the dip. Unfortunately, Tabitha is the only person at the party who doesn't eat any.

Paul and Nancy, a meter maid, share some dip and immediately make plans to fly to Las Vegas to get married. Tabitha's younger brother Adam eats the dip with Cassandra, and they fall in love. Producer Marvin Decker happens to be eating dip when he glances in a mirror and falls in love with his own image.

The party moves to the airport as Paul and Nancy prepare to leave for Las Vegas. Tabitha finally learns from Minerva what has happened, but is powerless herself to remove the spell. She summons warlock Dr. Bombay, her family physician, who arrives with his nurse and a potion which cures everyone on the spot. Cassandra, however, is still insistent that the Witches' council Edict be followed.

Upon learning that the doctors's nurse is a mortal she marries Bombay and his nurse.


The plans of the Witches Council go astray when a love potion intended only for witch Tabitha and her Boss, Paul Thurston, is comsumed by a large number of people at a party.
