The Good Witch

Synopsis: Jake Russell, the friendly police chief in town so small initially worries about mysterious outsider heiress Cassandra 'Cassie' Nightingale, who moved into the house held to be haunted by the 'grey lady', and opens a strange gift shop full with attributes of occultism, soon causing the rumor she's a wicked witch. After Cassie kindly helps his brave son Brandon (and his sissy sister Lori) with a dog, bully Kyle -abused by his own poor dad- and their own fears, Jake soon makes friends with her, even romantically interested. Yet the 'chief' is professionally obliged to handle a flood of complaints and harassment started by the mayor's haughty wife, her busy bodies-bunch, and teenage brats. Finally Derek Sanders, Jakes's only deputy, hits on Cassie's hidden background.

Derrick, it's Jake.

I'm parked at the

corner of 3rd and Main.

I'm going out on foot patrol.

I don't know Jake.

It's a pretty rough neighborhood;

lots of little old ladies

who know how to swing a purse.

Very funny.



Anybody there?

- Walter?

- Hm?

Ah, Walter!

Come on. What are you doing out here?

They kicked me out of the motel.

Well you can't stay here Walter.

What am I gonna do?

Come on.

You can stay in the jail tonight and

tomorrow you gotta find a place to live.

You can't live in an alley.

Thanks Jake. Thanks.

All right.

Okay. Come on. Can you get up?

Come on, put your arm on me here.

That's it.

George what are you doing up?

Lori's having nightmares again.

I stayed up to keep her company.

Again, huh?

I was hoping those were over.

Children have nightmares.

Yeah, but not like this.

It's been three years.

It started when Jenny...

it's been hard for all of us.

I miss my daughter too.

You know, I appreciate

everything you've done,

but I can get some help

in here, give you a break.

Don't worry about me.

Worry about your kids.

I mean every day.


Honey, I'm sorry. I

didn't mean to wake you.

The monsters are back.

Well I promise we're going to do

something about those monsters.

Can you sleep here?


Okay, I'm going to

check on Brandon and then

I'll come back and sit

with you for a while.

And if those monsters come around,

I'll arrest them.

You can't arrest monsters.

Everybody knows that.

Brandon why aren't you in bed?

I'm not tired.

It's a school night. Turn off

the computer and get to bed.


Listen I thought maybe

Saturday we'd go done to the park and throw

the ball around a bit. What do you think?


Okay, we'll talk about it tomorrow.

Come on, hurry up.

I'm tired.

I'll make you a deal:

I'll trade you your dream

monsters for a real one.

What do you mean?

Never mind.

The Grey lady.


I just saw the Grey lady.

- Where?

- In the window up there.

- I don't see anything.

- She was there.

You're just imagining it,

just like you imagine

all your other monsters.

It was her.

The ghost of Grey house.


Come on, we're gonna be late.

But I really did see her. Wait.

Good morning Derrick.

What are you doing here so early?

My job.

- Something going on?

- No.

I didn't think so.

I'm heading out...

Cruising the streets of Middleton.

That should take all of 10 minutes.

Well, I can't sit around

here all day like you do.

Don't know it till you've tried it.

Mrs. Tinsdale.

- Chief Russell.

- Martha. Good morning.

What can I do for you today?

I am astounded that you let that drunken

Walter Cobb out of jail.

I just saw him leave here

and stumble down the street.

Now it's your responsibility

to keep our streets safe.

Okay, I'll have a talk with him.

Oh, you need to do more than talk.

Anything else?

There's a rumor going

around that someone

is occupying Grey house.

Grey house.

Who would want to live there?

Probably some little

old lady with 15 cats.

Several members of the Citizen's League have

reported strange smells coming from the place.

Smells? What kind of smells?

Chemical smells, which makes me wonder

if someone hasn't set up a drug lab.

A drug lab.

In Middleton?

You need to check on it.

I will.

- I'll check on it right away.

- Good.

- I'll meet you there.

- No, you don't have to do that.

Chief Russell, as chairperson

of the Citizen's League,

it is my responsibility to keep apprised

of all developments in our community.

You're right.

I'll see you there.

Nosy old bat.
