    • Max: Your my conscience? This isn't what I meant to do. You gotta get out of here! Conscience: Well I wouldn't be here if you would have read the instructions. Max: Instructions are for cheaters.

    • Alex: (to Max) Dude, aren't you a little worried that Justin might beat us in the wizard competition? Max: Alex, I'm worried about a lot of things. This might be as tall as I get!

    • Max: How come you don't look like me? Conscience: I'm what you look like to other people. Max: (while observing Conscience) Well, I guess I'll have to admit it now; I don't have a mustache.

    • Justin: So I just decided what independent study course I'm going to take and it's called "ha-ha, I'm beating you in the wizard competition" (laughs), that was a good one. Just kidding, all seriousness, the course is called "Monster hunting". Alex: Oh good, then you can round up all of your ex-girlfriends.

    • Harper: Alex, when you called and said something about studying, I thought you were being held against your will and forced to say crazy stuff.

    • Spells Featured: "Hair all frizzy, don't have a tizzy, thin lizzy!"- makes you thin. "My inner thoughts of right and wrong, Come out come out where you belong!"- brings your consience out, but you're supposed to stand in front of a mirror, then your reflection will become your conscience. "Hot monsters in the city, running wild what a pity!"- releases monsters into your city. "Leg'n'fita runamita!" or "Grow legs and go away"- gives something legs and makes it run away.

    • Goof: Jerry says that Justin's first spell was turning a brick into a rabbit and Justin replies 'Edgebonoutoosis'. It was actually Alex who accidentally turned a guinea pig into a brick in Report Card, and the spell was "This (object or person) is now a not, a (object or person) should fill its slot". In Crazy Ten Minute Sale, 'Edgebonoututoosis' was the duplication spell.

    • The version of the song that Alex sings in the train station is slightly different from the original one she was singing with Harper in the kitchen.
