    • Alex: No thanks. I don't play games, especially ones that end with crime scene tapes.

    • Theresa: Justin, aren't you going to get dressed up for your date? Justin: These are my good flip flops!

    • Harper: I don't want to look in your brain. There's a lot of scary stuff in there! Alex: (laughs) Thank you.

    • Max: (about Daphne) Luckily for you, I have an idea on how you can get rid of her. Dad's forcing us to have Family Game Night tonight. You know us, the cops will be there an hour after we get started. Justin: And I'll invite Daphne. She see how hurtful and cheating us Russos can be and she never want to see me again! Max: That's a great idea. I was thinking we could plant some of Mom's jewelry in her purse and get her arrested.

    • Alex: (whispers) I have two brains inside my head. Justin: If you are trying to psyche me out for charades, you're going to have to do better than that. Alex: No, no, I'm serious. I mixed up a bunch of spells. I can prove it. Just, talk to Harper's brain. Justin: Uh, okay... Let me see... Hello, Harper's brain? Harper From Inside Alex's Head: (in awe) You're staring at me with those eyes, I think I might faint! Justin: Yep, definitely Harper's brain alright.
