** If they made a DealWithTheDevil for eternal life and have been in hell, presumably when they were there at the time and said devil brought them back. They probably don't want to return as failures, because Old Scratch will subject them to some terrible punishment for failing to drain more children.
** Just because they enjoyed their time in Hell doesn't mean they don't enjoy being alive much more.

** Rule of funny for most of it, but always figured that the singing was part of their magic powers, i.e. "In exchange for eternal service to Satan, the Dark Lord will grant you the magical ability to sing mind controlling songs that are pleasing to the listeners."
*** Justified in that Sara's special power was enchanting song so it IS a valid magical ability.

* How exactly did the witches begin to brew the potion at all? Their home has been turned into a museum for centuries and surely any remnants of dead bodies (dead man's toe and oil of boils) were done away with centuries ago. How could the witches have acquired such ingriedients in the time between kidnapping Danny and Sarah returning from using her magic song? We can clearly see the potion is in its final stage, so it seems they either had the ingredients on hand (doubtful) or killed a few people on the way.
* Why did Disney allow so much FetishFuel in this movie? Sarah's obvious bewb window on the front of her dress (and her obsession with 'playing with' every male character in the movie)? The scene where Max is humiliated by little Dani's statement, one being, "Max really likes your yabos. In fact, he loves them." -shrug- It doesn't seem completely Disney to me, but then again, there are those Youtube subliminal messages.

* It might be just me, but I can't seem to wrap my mind around the fact that there were only two scenes where the witches showed their unfamiliarity with the modern world - the black river, the fire truck scare, the television in the devil's house, OMGWTF BURNING RAIN OF DEATH!!! Then suddenly they're going up to sing their VillainSong with the microphones and other new stuff, and somehow they know how to harmonize and sing pop-style. They aren't scared of the vaccum cleaner. Then Winnie yells at Max during one of the many ChaseScenes, "Pull over, let me see your driver's license." Whaat? Why would they know how to deal with all of this when they've only been alive for about three hours?

***Unless he had sex with another 15 year-old person, as most normal people do. Who wrote this headscratcher? Doug Walker? When I saw the movie as a young teen I did get the joke, we all were assuming that virgin meant female, but it apply to him too, he is ashamed of that as, whether we like or not, most teen boys of that age want not to be virgins and many, especially someone good looking like him, are not. Teens do have sex before 18 even when currently become an issue among socially conservative people, but in the 90s it wasn’t such a scandal and many movies and TV series implied or openly established that teens were sexually active.

* What is the witch's goal in trying to live forever anyway? They mention a few times that they spent the intervening centuries in hell and enjoyed themselves; Sarah actually seems pretty cheerful to go back when they're defeated.

** Also, keep in mind that they spent some time riding a bus, with a bus driver who explained a little about what said vehicle was and even let Sarah try to drive it. They could easily have been repeating something they heard from him. The guy seemed like the kind who'd sarcastically shout something like that at another driver.

*** The only one to break in on a Full Moon during Halloween and not be thwarted by Binx. He's been guarding house the on Halloween night ever since the witches died to stop people doing exactly that

*** They likely spent the day searching for Thackery and questioning the sisters about what they've done with him. They make it clear they know something they aren't saying and they're hanged when the children's father finally loses his patience.
