Spanish Pocket Elf
This is the first time we see Harper actually act awkwardly around Justin, during the first scene
We learn the children's school colors are blue and gold.
Goof: Think About It: When Alex spills a little chocolate, there should be a small puddle at her feet. But in the next shot, there is chocolate stretching right to the other side of the room. There is no way that the chocolate could have spread that far.
Wizardry Lesson: Pocket Elves
We learn that Alex doesn't know Spanish, her mother's language.
Goof: Think About It: The waiter asks Justin and Max if they want him to call his parents. Justin says "that would be good, and we had nothing to do with this" and puts a $5 bill in his pocket. The waiter walks away to make the phone call but doesn't ask for the phone number.
Reply Well, Justin could've given him the number as well as the five dollars, he may have hidden it inside the five dollars.
Justin: I'm going to get even.
Alex: Okay, that is never going to happen. The last time you tried to get even with me, I got the bigger bedroom, and you got what?
Justin: (embarrassed) Shotgun on that one trip to the outlet mall.
Alex: Exactly, some things never change.
Jerry: (finding out Alex has a date) Ooh. I wasn't expecting this. I'm very disappointed.
Alex: That I passed?
Jerry: Yeah. Because now it's time to have the "date talk". (sits down with Alex) Alright, here it goes... A lot of times when you're out alone with a boy, he's thinking...
Alex: Alone? What are talking about? We're not going to be alone.
Jerry: You're not?
Alex: No. Harper, Stacy, Jackie, Sandra, Terry, Samantha, Chris, Noah, and Kelly will be there too.
Jerry: And you call that a date? That's not what I called a date when I was a kid.
Alex: What was a date when you were a kid?
Jerry: Uh... (sees Theresa making hand signals) You know what? You're right. That is a date!
Jerry: (to Alex) Bye! Have fun on your date!
Jerry: (smirking) It's so not a date!
Harper: He's so cute. I never know what to say to him.
Alex: Just talk about current events. He loves current events.
Justin: Hey guys.
Harper: Alex failed her Spanish mid-term!
Alex: Not that current!
Harper: (About their date) What are you thinking about wearing on Friday? I think I'm gonna stick with this whole fruit theme, you know? And I don't want us to be wearing the same thing.
Alex: Oh, then you can wear it this time...and the time after that.
Riley: Uh, a bunch of us are going to this cool resturant, Medium Rare on Friday night. Wanna come?
Alex: Oh, sure. Medium Rare. I go there all the time.
Riley: But it's new. Friday's opening night.
Alex: Oh! Medium Rare! I thought you said Medium Roar. You know like bigger than a kitten but smaller than a lion. You know? Like a cougar! It's all by a zoo.
Riley: (to Harper) You can come too.
Harper: I might as well after my best friend never took me to Medium Roar!
Justin: (about the paintball splatters) What are pigeons eating now a days?!
Jerry: And the fact that the two of you were conveniently there tells me that you two had something to do with this.
Justin: No...we were coming from a place that, um, Max knows the name of.
Waiter: What are you two doing?
Justin: Trying to get this chocolate in that purse.
Max: To mess with our sister!
Waiter: I have a sister....get in!
Riley (about Alex): Is she okay?
Harper: Oh you know us girls...gotta have our chocolate.
(After Alex slides in chocolate on restaurant floor)
Max: Revenge is sweet! (pumps fists)
Justin: ..and sticky!
Theresa: How long did you think you could hide this from us?
Alex: Well, actually I just needed you to believe it til the date was over, so I'm good!
Theresa: (points to a lamp) ?Como se dice…?
Alex: (puzzled) Lamp-ito.
Theresa: Lampara. Ok, ok, next one. (indicates a cup) ?Como se dice…?
Theresa: Honey, just adding "ito" after every word doesn't make it Spanish.
Alex: Well, you're saying como se dice before everything. Is that Spanish?
Theresa: Don't worry, I'm gonna help you with your espanol.
Alex: That's fine, but I really need help with my Spanish, too.
Theresa: Espanol is Spanish.
Alex: Espanol's Spanish for what?
Alex(after the Pocket Elf bites her): You know what's not a good color combo? Our school colors - blue and gold. Ugh. That's why I'm not a cheerleader. Besides, I'm not self-centered. I should start a school petition to change our school colors to midnight blue and chocolate.
Jerry: To you and me, chocolate is a delicious treat often used to say sorry to a loved one. But to this little guy, it's like lighting the fuse on a crazy bomb.
Alex(after Riley asks her to a restaurant): Wow, all those hours I spent not studying totally paid off!
Harper: Wow, failing Spanish sounds exhausting.
Alex: It is. That's why I sleep during History.
Harper: Riley's so cool!
Alex: I know! And he can drive with a parent or guardian during any daylight hour!
Jerry: How are you going to learn a whole language in two days!? I have some spanish for you! (to Alex) No way, Jose! (laughs)
