Having acquired a quick and efficient recipe for one, Magica De Spell decides to try the oldest trick in the book on Scrooge McDuck: make him fall in love with her (or rather, her alias “Mildred”) to get him to gift the Number One Dime to her. The plan goes off like a charm, but when he comes back to his senses, Scrooge isn't going to admit defeat…
- Magica De Spell receives the Revised Edition of Sublime Spells For Sublime Sorceresses, where she finds the recipe for the Love Potion.
- Gyro Gearloose manages to isolate chemicals which trigger phobias on command, such as a phobia for cash (which Scrooge uses to get Magica to surrender the Number One Dime). Scrooge notes that it will wear off in a few hours.
- Despite Magica's mentioning in this story that she "thought have thought sooner" of using a Love Potion on Scrooge, she actually already did so in an earlier story, A Fine Romance (1998).
- Scrooge McDuck gets to Mount Vesuvius aboard his Supersonic Vertex, previously featured in The Orb Saga (1999).
