Harry uses a little hocus-pocus to convince Bull he's cured of a gypsy curse.
A spiritual medium responds to Harry's contempt of court sentence by placing a curse on the courtroom. Harry thinks she's a phony, but Bull collapses, paralyzed, while Dan's accountant drops dead during an audit.
Plot Summary Edit
It seems terribly funny when gypsy fortuneteller Madame Loretta (Erica Yohn), cited for ontempt of court, places a curse on everyone in the courtroom. But no one is laughing when Bull (Richard Bull) suddenly becomes paralyzed and Dan's accountant (Herb Gilpin) abruptly drops dead during a tax audit. Judge Harry (Harry Anderson) must revert to his street-entertainer days and come up with some magic of his own to lift the curse.
