Plot[edit | edit source]

While window shopping, Sadie spots a rare rum bottle in the window of a shop. She and Frank enter, and meet two other customers - a ballerina and a solider. When Sadie buys the bottle, she becomes trapped in the store as well.

After speaking with the other trapped customers, the Doyles realize it must be the work of a fairy godmother's spell and that the fairy must have become trapped by her own spell. Frank buys a wooden stake and stabs Sergeant Booker, the fairy godmother. Free of the spell, the Doyles return home.

Quotable Lines[edit | edit source]

Shopkeeper Joe: Well, that’s another problem entirely young lady. One you come in, there’s no going out. Once you become a customer, you stay a customer.

Sadie: Well, that’s can’t be true. We've experienced otherwise about such places.

Frank: Oh indeed. Say, this is like the time we went on that island vacation in what turned out to be purgatory. Or that California hotel that other time. Despite what the nightman said, we checked out and we left!


Sadie: "Rum bouillon" is the full Christian name of rum.
