Goof: When Alex jumps up from behind the couch and meets Ruby, she says "Hi, Im Alec".
Justin and Alex aren't allowed in the R-rated movie because they're under 17. In reality, according to MPAA guidelines, American movie theaters can allow children under 17 into R-rated movies as long as they're accompanied by someone over 17. Since Alex and Justin were with their 17 year old friends, they would have been allowed in.
Reply: In New York, where the Russo's live, you are not allowed to see an R rated movie under 17 unless you are with an adult over 21. Their friends were not over 21 therefore they could not go in with them.
Jerry believes that Alex is so wild that she should be drafted by the Air Force.
We learn that wizards are able to make their own spells. One of the few rules is that the incantations have to rhyme for the spell to be effective. Another problem is that it can be misinterpreted and do something completely different than originally intended, so the wizards have to be very literal.
"Satisfy my empty belly, make me a peanut butter and jelly" - This turned Max into a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Alex turned Max back to human form by saying "Although I love such tasty snacks, I'd rather have my brother Max".
"I'm old enough to hang with actress/model/spokeswoman Ruby Donahue, so get me into Night of the Halloween Sorority Party Disaster 2" - Alex intended to transport herself into the movie theater, but she ended up actually being in the movie.
"We've had enough of all this fear, so hurry up and get us out of here!" - Alex and Justin were trying to transport themselves out of the movie, but they ended up in a different part of the house in the movie.
"I'm scared of what might happen next, so take us to the Mondoplex" - This successfully transports Alex and Justin back into the theater lobby.
Justin: (About Alex's fake I.D.) It's just a piece of construction paper a a clipping of that new weather girl I like. (Hesitates) You went into my room without asking!
Jerry: Today, we are learning spell improvisation, or make'em ups.
Jerry: (trying to teach spells) Okay, you haven't eaten for days and your starving, and in desperate need of a sandwich. What do you do?
Alex: I go down to the sandwich shop and ask Mom to make me a sandwich.
Jerry: Yes, but Mom's not there?
Justin: Where's Mom?
Jerry: She left the country.
Justin: Left the country! Why? Is she okay?
Jerry: She's fine!
Alex: Well if she's fine I don't see why she couldn't make me a sandwich.
Alex: (to Susan) Please tell me you're talking about something incredibly lame right now.
Susan: Actually, a lot of us are making plans to see Night of the Halloween Sorority Party Disaster 2.
(Susan crosses to the counter)
Alex: You mean that new Ruby Donahue movie?
Alex: I love Ruby Donahue!
Susan: Me too! She's like a role model of mine! I plan to follow exactly in her footsteps! I'm gonna grow up on a ranch in Montana, start my own charity for something sad, and then create my own price-conscious beret line.
Alex: Have you heard her new CD of sensitive but mildly angry rock songs?
Alex: Excuse me, did you just laugh at something Justin Russo said?
Math Geek: Of course I did, Justin's hilarious.
Alex: Reeeeeeeeally? And would you normally describe yourself as a very boring person?
Math Geek: Actually, I was voted least boring in the yearbook three years in a row.
Alex: Wouldn't that be most exciting.
Math Geek: No that's Sean Cunningham. He's very exciting.
Jerry: Max, what do you need right now?
Max: Bagpipes!...I wasn't listening.
Justin: Face it, Alex. You're mad because I'm more mature than you.
Alex: Mature? You're the only one in this family who still takes a bath.
Justin: You try floating an aircraft carrier in the shower!
Justin: Alex Russo has messed up, and put herself in a movie, put me also in that movie! That didn't even sound like a spell! Now let's see. What rhymes with movie? Boovie? Joovie? Loovy? Plant!
Alex: I know it bothers you. But it's out of my control. We don't choose our friends.
Justin: (hesitates) Yes we can!
First time we see Justin hanging out with his friends.
