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.
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.
