Sabrina old

Sabrina turns into an elderly women.

Aging, Not So Gracefully
is the eighth episode of the fourth season and the eighty third overall episode of Sabrina the Teenage Witch.


As Sabrina walks into the coffee house, she tries acting more mature in an attempt to catch Josh's eye. However, when he only sees her as a high school kid, Sabrina decides to look in her magic book to see if there is a spell or magical potion to make her appear older to Josh, and eventually finds a face cream called "Oil of Old Age." At first the cream works great, making Sabrina appear more mature to Josh, but the more Sabrina uses it, she gradually turns into an elderly woman. After Harvey brings her home, Hilda and Zelda have to take time out of getting feuding scientists Pierre and Marie Curie back together in order to return Sabrina to normal.

Meanwhile, Salem comes up with an ill thought out plan to meet Paula Abdul.
