Summary Edit

When the Banks family attends a séance so Hilary can contact her dead ex-fiancé, Trevor, the spiritualist gets so frustrated with Will's skepticism that he curses the family with a hex that brings them all bad luck: Uncle Phil is but out of business because of assumed evidence that he was taking bribes, Ashley breaks an ankle just before her tennis match, Carlton's hair gets bleached as a result of his Macaulay Culkin Halloween costume, Geoffrey gets deported, and Jazz and Hilary plan to get married. Will must convince the psychic to break the curse.

Will wakes up and discovers that everything was a nightmare and goes to have breakfast with his family where he finds to his horror that yesterday seems to be repeating itself. 

Trivia Edit

  • Carlton placing his hands on his cheeks and screaming when Uncle Phil is in trouble for taking bribes is a reference to the infamous scene from Home Alone, in which Kevin McCallister (played by Macaulay Culkin) screams after putting aftershave on his face.
  • The song Will sings while mocking Scorpius' hex spell is "Lady Marmalade" by Labelle.
