Dantes Inferno
Dante's Inferno is the fourth episode of the second season and the twenty eighth overall episode of Sabrina the Teenage Witch.


Forced to date others, Sabrina and Harvey try to ease the pain by double-dating, but Sabrina's date, Dante, is a witch who has never been in the mortal realm before and has a very bad attitude about it, with unfortunate consequences for Harvey and his date, Jean.

Meanwhile, Hilda copes with a bizarre illness, punnitis, that causes everything she says to be taken literally and come true which causes Davy Jones of the Monkees to become a house guest.


Witch Yenta: I have to go. I have to meet someone...

Zelda: Your old boyfriend?

Witch Yenta: No, my therapist

Hilda: She seems so happy. Oh, remember how we used to stay up Friday nights telling each other about our dates?

Zelda: We haven’t done that in ages.

Hilda: I know. We haven’t done that in ages because we haven’t had dates in ages.

Zelda: Oh well, at least we have each other. Oh my heavens! I’m living with my sister! I've gotta call that yenta!

Hilda: I remember the first time a boy gave me a star... Next thing I knew three wise men were at the door.

  • Libby, The Quizmaster, and Mr. Kraft do not appear in this episode.
  • Dante is the first of three witch boys that Sabrina dates over the course of the show.
  • Harvey's date was originally called Audrey but her name was changed to Jean shortly before filming so that Davy Jones would have a reason to sing his hit song, "Daydream Believer" which has the lyric "Cheer up, sleepy Jean..." The actress is still credited as Audrey in the closing credits.
  • Hilda's punitus spell illness involves several things she says including figures of speech, appearing in physical form. These include a screaming eye when Hilda tries to conjure up some ice cream; Davy Jones of the Monkees when Hilda feels like she has "a monkey on her back"; Zelda's tongue is removed and temporarily placed in Salem's possession when Hilda asks Zelda if a cat has got her tongue; and Dante ends up with a large bone in his head when called a bonehead.
  • The walk Davy Jones is teaching Hilda, Zelda and Sabrina at the end of the episode is an allusion to the opening credits of the TV show, The Monkees.
  • Evidently, the title alludes to the work Inferno by Dante.
  • Davy Jones died on 29 February 2012.
