  • I hate this episode

    This episode was sickening. Why? I mean, Alex and Justin were both jerky characters in this episode. I understand that they had to be selfish so that the plot could progress but they could've done this differently. Alex could've came up with the idea and Justin could've said no but was forcefully agreed into doing so. Instead, they portrayed both characters as jerks and the plot itself was annoying
  • a pretty good episode.

    Justin and Alex come to really like Max's tutor and team up to sabotage Max's progress in order to keep her from leaving. Though I usually enjoy Max as more as a subplot character, it's good to see him take center stage once in a while. However, I wish he would've gotten a little more screen time. I mean if Max has been improving in his wizard studies, he should at least be seen performing magic correctly more than just one time. When I saw the promos for this episode, I thought it was going to be more about Harper feeling insecure when Alex wanted Tutor as a bestfriend, but that was just one scene. I thought it was funny how the Leprechuan Grill turned out to be just a small resterant with teenagers dressed as leprechauns, and Justin wore the green tuxedo for nothing. Alex was so funny when she said "Only you could make a green tuxedo stand out in a leprechaun resturant". Also, Alex keeps teasing the actual leprechaun in the display; apparently she does like poking things with a stick (i.g. "Art Teacher"). Max soon finds out that what Alex and Justin did (from his mom of corse) and releases the angry leprechaun on them. In the end, Alex and Justin find out that Tutor is part elf and now they don't if liked her for real or because of her "elf magic".moreless

  • QUOTES (7)

    • (When Tutor arrives, Justin is obviously smitten with her)
      Alex: Your services aren't needed, because my brother has a vast knowledge of Wizardry that might shame you into leaving in disgrace. Isn't that right Justin? (spots Justin trying to sniff Tutor's hair) JUSTIN!!!

    • Alex: (to Justin) Wow. Only you could make a green tuxedo stand out in a leprechaun joint.

    • Harper: Not to sound insecure or anything, but you're not trying to replace me with that "Tutor" chick are you?
      Alex: Harper, you're wearing a dress made of fruit-roll snacks. Nobody can replace you, believe me.

    • (Theresa offers to take Alex and Harper out for makeovers)
      Alex: Makeovers? You mean where stuck-up girls make snooty faces up at us, while they pluck our eyebrows until we scream, and they tell us "you'd be pretty if you took care of your skin"? Pass.
      Theresa: (to herself) This is not what I pictured having a girl would be like.

    • Alex: (to Justin) Being with you is like a museum; not much to see and you're instantly bored.

    • Alex: Yeah, Max never holds his wand backwards. He just stands on the wrong side of it. (Tutor and Alex laugh)

    • Justin: Dad hired you a tutor? That's an insult to me! (intensely) I tutor tutors!
