Rope Jumper Girl
Including Justin and Zeke, there are only 6 members in the Alien Language League.
Finish a Marathon Spell - Incantation: "Gnip Gnop, Hippity Hop, run 26.2 miles, then stop".
Goof: When Carol spells her word, she spells it wrong. At the end she says "fhobia", it should be "phobia".
Justin: (finding out Harper didn't really win the marathon) I can still be the first Russo to win an athletic trophy. I'm going to train hard, eat right, and win the next marathon. I'll start as soon as my toenails grow back.
(Justin walks a away with a bit of a limp)
Theresa: (to Alex) See what you've done? Not only did you hurt Harper's feelings, but you sent your brother off on an unrealistic goal!
Alex: Why? His toenails will grow back.
Alex: Good luck trying to track down the runners from Kenya.
Alex: But I do feel bad about Harper.
Jerry: Well, I don't know how you're going to make it up to her. I'm mean it's not like she can do all those competitions over again. Oh shoot!
Theresa: What's wrong?
Jerry: (referring to Alex) I think accidentally gave her an idea.
Alex: Yes you did!
Harper: (looking at the Cheater's Book of Spells) Win at Jumping Rope spell.
Harper: Achieve black belt in tae kwon do.
Harper: Picked first for kickball?!
Alex: I'm surprised you didn't figure that one out on your own.
Harper: Well, that's just great Alex. Some of my biggest achievements in life are all lies because of you!
Alex: Now, I wouldn't say...picked first in kickball is a big achievement.
Jerry: Look what I found in "the area where Alex hides things" area.
Alex: Well, time to move that area again.
Harper: Oh my gosh, Alex. You used magic on me so I would win?!
Alex: Not you, just your feet.
(the Russos set up a spelling bee for Harper)
Jerry: Okay, are you ready for you're word, Max?...
Max: Max. M-A-C-K-S Max.
Jerry: That's not your word, that's your name...and you misspelled it!
Max: I should have asked for a definition.
Max: (to Harper) I'm going to make you my special after-marathon get-relaxed smoothie. Herbal tea, warm milk, and a jasmine-scented candle.
Harper: Max, you're not allowed to play with candles anymore.
Max: Or blenders, so shut up about it.
Alex: Harper, when you moved in here, you promised me you would never, ever, ever run a marathon!
Harper: Dear, I never said that.
Alex: Look I'm half-asleep, so my lies aren't really good right now.
Alex: I never used magic before my alarm clock went off. (laughs to herself) I don't have an alarm clock!
Justin: (about Harper) Oh, come on. She's not your daughter...
Alex: Guys, check it out- if you put cereal on your hot dog, it counts as breakfast!
Justin: That's your daughter.
Harper: Who won a tae kwon do contest? That's right. This girl! (hits her smoothie) That smoothie didn't even see it coming.
(Justin comes in and sits as he is exhausted from running in the marathon)
Zeke: Hey Justin, you made it. Where've you been?
Justin: I was finishing the marathon. Where were you? I wore the alien mask, like we discussed, when I crossed the finish line and there was nobody there to take the picture. Without the picture, it was just...stupid.
(throws his alien mask on the table)
(Theresa, Jerry, Zeke, Harper, Max and Alex walk in after Harper wins the marathon with a silver big trophy)
Theresa: Woo-hoo! Harper, we are so proud of you. Where should we display your winning trophy?
Harper: In my room.
(She begins to take the trophy up but couldn't because Theresa took it from her)
Theresa: Don't be silly. Other people should know that a Russo won the marathon.
Alex: She's not a Russo.
Theresa: Until one of you kids wins a marathon, she is.
(Zeke and Justin start to play jump rope)
Zeke: (singing as he turns the rope) Teddy bear, teddy bear turn around. Teddy bear, teddy bear touch the ground. Teddy bear...
Justin: (interrupts) Zeke! Do it in your head.
Alex: Why would you ever run 26 miles?
Harper: The same reason you stay on the couch for the entire month on July.
Alex: Ooh, I get it. A sense of accomplishment. Setting a goal and then achieving it.
If look close at where Alex is talking with Zeke on the race track, you would notice that the Late Nite Bite is one of the marathon's sponsors.
The sound of Harper running fast on the treadmill is the same "running foot noise" featured in Hanna Barbera cartoons such as "The Flintstones".
