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.

To Release Harvey's Head From a Bowling Pin
(Cast by Zelda Spellman)
- Rock and rubble
- Thunder and wind
- Release this poor schlub from his bowling pin
- 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.
