  • Not the funniest episode I've ever seen but it was a pretty heartfelt episode that any fan of this show will enjoy

    I thought that this was an excellent episode of "Wizards of Waverly Place". It wasn't the funniest episode that I have ever seen but it was overall excellent and the storyline was handled very well. It seemed to be more of a heartfelt episode instead of a very funny episode. There were not too many parts that made me laugh but some of the parts were pretty funny to laugh at. Alex trying to help Justin forget about Juliet and move on was very good and pretty heartwarming. Alex using a spell on Harper to make it pretend that she is Juliet so she can help Justin move on was very good and handled well. I haven't seen this episode in quite a while so I really don't remember the funny parts. Justin thanking Harper for helping him move on and forget about Juliet was nice. The very end of the episode when Justin went out on a date with that very pretty girl was very funny and very nice and it was also very heartwarming when the REAL Juliet (who is an old werewolf and had to leave Justin from "Wizards vs. Werewolves") was very nice and I liked how she smiled at Justin having fun. I do feel bad for Justin because losing the love of your life can be hard. I've never experienced love but I know I would be depressed if I lost my love. Overall, more of a heartwarming "Wizards of Waverly Place" episode instead of a funny one BUT heartwarming episodes are enjoyable to watch. 10/10moreless

    Wizards of Waverly Place continues to give us quality episodes and we got another one here tonight. I will be honest, as I always am during my reviews, this was not the funniest episode of the show I have ever seen, but it was an enjoyable premise that really showed why this program is so special: we care about these characters. Justin is the lovable loser, and seeing his struggles and his inability to pick up on female signs is always funny.

    Wizards is a great family comedy. Some good jokes, good storylines, every half hour is worth watching, no exception here tonight.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (5)

    • In the flashback from Alex and Harper's point of view, after they run into the sub station, they turn their backs to everyone else and have a brief conversation before Justin yells that Juliet's back. However, earlier when that scene took place, Alex and Harper did not turn around and have that brief conversation. They just stood there at the door in stunned silence looking at everyone else.

    • In the opening segment, after Justin says "swim with dolphins", there's a reaction shot of Alex and Harper. In the background you can see Jake T. Austin (Max) peeking in through the front doors of the sub station.

    • This would be the 5th time Alex uses phrase "We're going to be together forever", which she often predicts about relationships that ironically have had slim chance of working out later.

    • Once again, Justin has a picture of Juliet, even though vampires don't show up in pictures.

    • Spells featured:

      "Transfix, transpose, make Harper look like Juliet, from head to toes".
      "Transfix, transpose, make Harper look like young Juliet, including clothes".
      "Transfix, transpose, make Harper look like herself, including clothes".

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Justin: I should have known it was too good to be true. Where is a guy like me going to find a girl like Juliet again?
      Harper: (as Juliet) You probably won't find a girl like her again, but that doesn't mean you won't find a girl you'll like again. She's out there somewhere. You just have to be open to finding her.
      (Justin kisses her on the cheek)
      Harper: (as Juliet) Um. You're not supposed to be kissing Juliet, you're supposed to be getting over her.
      Justin: That wasn't for Juliet. It was for you Harper. Thank you.
      Harper: (as Juliet) No problem.
      (Justin turns Harper back to herself again)
      Harper: Thank you. And when you kissed me, I was Juliet. So Zeke doesn't have to know about this.

    • Justin: Max, did you just see Juliet walk by?
      Max: Juliet? You mean the one who got really old and hobbled off into the woods and you never got to see again?
      Justin: Yeah, that the one...
      Max: No , I don't remember her

    • Max: Dad, can I have this soup ladle? It'll be perfect when I'm out ladling things in the wild.
      Jerry: Max, what do think 'ladling' means?
      Max: (into the ladle) Ladle-ladle-lay-dee-hoo!

  • NOTES (1)


    • Jerry mentions an old friend of his named Benjamin Kenobi. This would a reference to the character Obi-Wan Kenobi from Star Wars, who at one point went by the cover name "Ben Kenobi".
