  • I would definately give this episode a 10-out-of-10 on the ranking scale! Also, this review isn't long anymore, I changed it!

    10
    Action, humor, and the return of a powerful enemy. This episode had everything! We even got to see what June's school's athletic uniforms looked like. Although Taylor did kidnap June, he did do the right thing in the end and save her. I think the ending could've been better though. Like instead of Taylor going into the void with Loki he could've stayed like Lila did and June would've helped him find another family,(one that wasn't so abusive). Personally, I think Taylor would make a better boyfriend for June than Marcus. Because 1-she wouldn't have to make up some excuse to go fight monsters, and 2-the natural enemy thing is more interesting than just meeting a guy regularly.moreless

    • Taylor: (after June didn't win a medal that will transport her to the underworld) I am SO gonna get banished for this.

    • Taylor: Anyway, I uh, I better get home. See ya!
      June: Okay, see ya!

    • Loki: I trust you were, successful? (Taylor nods his head) Good! Then it won't be long now until the Te Xuan Ze finally gets what she deserves! I am talking pain, I'm talking suffering, I'm talking endless agony bubba! And it's all part of a little something, I like to call, "The Wrath of Loki"! (laughs evilly) Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!
      Taylor: Yes, father.

    • June: Ophelia, you're not even trying.
      Ophelia: Duh.
      June: You're gonna let Mellisa O'Malley and her evil minions beat us?
      Ophelia: Wait, wait, wait. You wanna win this thing purely out of spite?
      June: Yeah.
      Ophelia: Works for me.

    • Loki: (after getting her to the point where she can't get up) And now, you preteen pain in the backside! (makes an attempt to banish her in the cage, then is hit by a lighting volt, Loki turns around, surprised to see it was Taylor)
      Ooh, somebody is in for a world of trouble!
      Taylor: Yeah, somebody is. (both
      transform into monsters and fight each other, June watches, scared, finally, Taylor gets Loki back in the cage)

      June: Oh please, I am totally working under the radar here. Bit by bit I am carefully, carefully, edging out the competition.
      Jody: June! You just did 173 pull-ups! That's a new international record!

      Taylor: Give it up, old man. (breaks the cage's chains, on the way down to the void he says goodbye) See ya, June.
      Loki: That does it! No television for a century mister!!! (falls into the void)

    • Loki: And another thing! As long as you're living under MY roof, you'll follow MY rules!
      Taylor: I'm not under your roof dad, I'm on top of it. (jumps off the cage and starts to do the backstroke away from it)
      Loki: Hey, where do you think you're going?! Void or no void, you've got a curfew! You're to have your butt home by eleven mister! (Taylor kicks his legs with his hands behind his head away from the cage)

    • Jody: Hey June, did you see where Taylor went after the meet? He just kind of, disappeared.
      June: Um, yeah, he had to go out of town. I think his dad got... transfered.
      Ophelia: Wow, that was fast.
      Marcus: Not fast enough, that guy was evil.
      June: Yeah well, maybe not entirely.
      Jody: He was really cute!
      June: (laughing) Yeah, so cute!
      Ophelia: Major cute!
      June: Crazy cute!

    • Loki: (appears beside Taylor) What is taking so long? (takes a bite out of a taco)
      Taylor: She wouldn't take the charm.
      (Loki spits out his food after hearing this)
      Loki: I knew it! I knew it! You came on too strong and blew it, didn't you?!
      Taylor: Dad, dad, chill okay? I'm not through yet. (cut to award table, Taylor enchants the medals using the charm)
      Loki: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa! (Loki appears beside Taylor as a floating head) Don't enchant ALL of the medals, okay? I'll be up to my neck in brats I am not running a day care center down here!
      Taylor: The charm only transports "magical" beings, dad! Remember?! Duh! (he walks away)
      Loki: Duh?! You will watch your tone with me kiddo, I did not raise-!(gets hit with a volley ball) Hey, I am floating here!

    • Jody: New boy at school! New boy at school! (very fast and excited) He just moved here from Walnut Grove, (runs up to Roger) he lives on Denvonshire Drive, (runs up to Ray Ray) his eyes are green, his favorite color is blue, (to Ophelia) he likes a light breakfast usually toast and occasionally ceareal with a sliced banana. (breathes) And he's really cute! Crazy cute! So cute you gotta go home and change your outfit cute! Which I did, twice.
      Ophelia: This boy got a name?
      Jody: (sighs dreamily) Taylor Evermore.

    • Taylor: June.
      June: Oh, uh, hey Taylor!
      Taylor: Ready to kick butt out there?
      June:I don't know, a lot of these kids here seem pretty good.
      Taylor: (shows her the charm bracelet)
      Maybe, this'll bring you some extra luck.
      June: Wow, that's so nice of you! (sees Marcus watching them) But sorry I can't, I'm uh, allergic to silver! Yeah I get hives! Big nasty hives! (Taylor looks at her up and down)
      Taylor: This is made of brass.
      June: Oh, uh, brass even worse! I get the hives plus you know, uh blindness! But um, uh thanks though, really.

    • Taylor: (shoots a lightning bolt at Loki) Leave her alone!!!
      June: (starts to wake up) Uh, Taylor? (sees him shooting lightning bolts, thinking they're aimed at her) Oh, Marcus was right about you! (comes at Taylor, intending to punch him)
      Taylor: It's not what you think!(dodges June's blow) Please June, stop. (dodges yet another blow) You gotta let me explain!
      June: Oh sure, go ahead, tell me the whole sad story while I'm plastering you all over this cave like wallpaper!
      Loki: Don't let her trash talk ya like that! Get her, son!
      June: Loki? You're Loki's son?
      Taylor: Kind of.
      June: Kind of? So you're not the spawn of captain evil over here?
      Taylor: Well I-
      June: You haven't kidnapped me and popped me down to the underworld?
      Taylor: Yes, but I-
      June: Or was just throwing lightning volts at me, and acting all nice like you liked me trying to give me presents? (Loki is getting bored of listening to them and starts opening and closing his hand like a mouth) No, you're just the son of the big honking demon god of lies!
      Loki: Oh, enough already!

    • Loki: (laughing) Well, well, well. Looks like my little boy's brought a friend home for dinner! Bring her to me, now!
      Taylor: Dad, listen, maybe there's another way.
      Loki: Taylor Valhalla Evermore, did you just say what I think you said?!
      Taylor: Seriously, dad she's smart, she's funny, she plays guitar, she's totally wicked on a skateboard!...I like her.
      Loki: (under his breath) Of all the stupid, excuse me, do you not want to rule the world?! Hmm? Everyone who wants to rule the world raise your hand! Mine's up! (threatening Taylor) What about yours?
      Taylor: Go ahead, ground me for all I care! It's not like I ever do anthing! Or have any friends! Nobody wants to hang out with you when your dad's the creepy, Dark-Lord of Deception!(mockingly) Ooh, I'm the evil tyrant of the underworld, and I'm so bad, I breathe fire, and I have the body of a snake, ooh fear me, ooh.(Loki hits Taylor with a lightning bolt) AUGH! Uh...
      Loki: Yes son, snake body and lightning that shoots from my hand.

    • Loki: I am the one who brought you into
      the third-dimension, and I can take you out!
      Taylor: Right! Like you did to Uncle Teddy, Aunt Gloria, the pizza guy!
      Loki: When I order a half-veggie, half-pepperoni pan pizza, I expect to get a half-veggie, half-pepperoni pan pizza! Okay we have one mission to accomplish in Orchid Bay city. One, and you will not be distracted by some superhero in a bellyshirt! Do you understand me, mister!? Do you?!
      Taylor: (reluctantly) Yes, sir.

    • Loki: If supergirl thinks a little something like BANISHMENT is gonna keep "The King of Lies" down, she's got a whole 'nother thing comin' babe! All daddy needs to skip-outta this joint, is another high-ranking magical being to take my place in this cell! And thanks to the fact that you inherited my devastating good looks, Juniper Lee's never gonna see our little scheme coming! NEVER! Remember, once you get her on desecrated grounds, give her the enchanted charm. THEN BING, BANG, BOOM! She is the one in the cage and the Big Man is out the world again! Think about it, kid. You and me, hittin' the open road, spreadin' terror and chaos! Hey! Maybe we could see Mt. Rushmore, hmm?
      Taylor: Yeah, I guess, but she seems, pretty cool.
      Loki: Cool? Who's cool?
      Taylor: Juniper.
      Loki: Whoa! Hold the phone, what did you just say cool? COOL?! ARE YOU OFF YOUR NUT?!
      Taylor: Look, dad, I'm just saying that-
      Loki: That you've got a "thing" for the chick, who banished your father to the Netherworld?! I am so glad your mother's not around to hear you say that!
      Taylor: 'Cause you banished her!

    • Taylor: So uh, how come you're holding back?
      June: What are you talking about?
      Taylor: Oh looks like you're letting that girl win.
      June: (nervously) No I'm not, besides this whole fitness competition's kind of lame anyway, who cares right?
      Taylor: (sarcastically) Right, (not sarcastically) it's just that, um, well you're way better than anybody else around here. Especially 'those girls'.
      June: You think? (smiles at him)
      Taylor: Oh, yeah! Seems kind of wrong to let them represent our school in the finals, it'd be nice if we had somebody, you know, someone who's a "better person". (looks at June)
      Gym Teacher: JUNIPER LEE! Second and final kick!
      June: Oh, gotta go!

    • Ophelia: He's not so great.
      Taylor: Hey, cool hair.
      (Ophelia giggles)

    • June: (laughing) You actually saw Melissa putting on lip gloss during the 50-yard dash?
      Taylor: (also laughing) And, in the middle of her long jump!
      (Both laugh harder)

    • Loki: (getting out of his cage) Ahh, never send a boy to do a man's job.
      June: Yeah, you're right. (gets ready to fight) Ya shoulda sent a girl.
      (Loki laughs evilly)

    • June: What does a girl have to lose around here?

  • NOTES (19)

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • This is similar to the episode Picture Day, in which June is kidnapped by Cordoth's daughter in order to free him from banishment. Although the ending is different.

    • Relations: Loki and Taylor / Norman and Harry Osborn

      This is similar in the comic book/film Spider-Man, where the Green Goblin used his son to get revenge for his defeat so that he can return.
