  • The best Season 2 episode and my favorite WOWP episode! ~~~Just a great ep

    I absolutely found this episode hysterical. Not only did I wish it was longer, I also enjoyed the plots.

    1. The diet changes and Alex moving to work for Late Night Bite

    2. Max living in a pumpkin house

    3. Justin and Juliet relationship

    This episode is actually one of the few WOWP episodes I can watch every single day and not get sick of it. The characters (all of them) are at their very best. Theresa and Jerry were my favorite characters in this episode and I enjoyed everything about it, especially just before the Van Houten's were about to suck Alex's blood.

    This episode was well done and overall, each plot point added to the overall conclusion of the episode. The final scene of the episode is one of my all time favorite WOWP momentsmoreless
  • Juliet now in date mode with Justin suggests eating healthy. The Russo's go on a diet, but is she really doing it for their health or how their going to taste?moreless

    This was a very simple, yet very fun episode.

    They didn't try to do too much and as a result got a very solid, and satisfying episode.

    Now, my one criticism actually was cancelled out by one of the funniest bits in the episode. Now, I did feel, they dropped Max's story-line completely out from the previous episode. That is the criticism. But, what they did with Max instead, stole the show. He was the funniest part of the episode. You really could see the trouble brewing in what he was going to do, and they timed it so perfectly. Other, notes: Justin is really in shape. I think they are going to have to have him wearing more long sleeved shirts if they want to sell him off as the nerdy type. They keep coming up with different types of almost kisses with Juliet and Justin. It's kind of cute.

    They really underplayed Alex in this one and I think it helped the episode alot. Did, Harper just become employee of the month in less than a day?

    The comical way the Russo's took Alex's pending danger, and had even more fear for Harper was phenomenal.

    It's kind of funny, when Justin had first started dating in previous episodes they actually had him date the same actress, but playing different roles. In the first one she was kind of a goth girl. And here Justin is full circle and dating someone beyond just in the goth motif and on multi-dates. That's progress right?

    I love this Vampires/Wizards storyline. I can't wait to see where they go with this next.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (8)

    • Look Closely: Just before Mr. and Mrs. Van Huesan pretend to take Alex's picture, you would notice Harper putting up her "employee of the month" picture on the wall. How could she be employee of the month if she's only been working there for one day?

    • Spells Featured :
      "Don't let this garden go to waste, give all this food a lot more taste" - The spell was intended to fill Theresa's garden with flavor, but it created a giant pumpkin instead.

    • When Harper and Alex go to the Late-Nite-Bite, Juliet's parents openly talk about Juliet being a vampire. However, it was never mentioned to them that Harper was in the know.

    • At the end when the Russo family is eating the giant pumpkin pie, if you pay close attention, you'll notice that they're not actually eating the pie. They're just eating the whipped cream on top. That's because the pie itself is fake.

    • When Max, inside the giant pumpkin, makes the "loser" hand gesture, he pushes on the pumpkin, revealing it to be fake (made of foam it seems).

    • Goof: Juliet points out to Theresa that vampire's have a very strong sense of smell, yet she was shocked when Harper opened her coat to reveal a garlic necklace. Couldn't Juliet smell it as soon as she walked in? Harper was a mere few feet away the whole time. The reason she didn't notice Harper is wearing it could be because she is in a sandwich shop. It is likely she wouldn't be shocked if they had garlic bread.

    • After the beginning credits, Alex throws a mock fit because her mom is throwing out all of the junk food. After she says, "I'm just kidding", there's a shot of mom, and in the background outside the sub shop's front doors we see Bridgit Mendler (the actress playing Juliet) waiting for her cue to enter. You can notice that she realizes that she's on camera and tries to sneak off to the side.

    • Pumpkins are more repulsive to vampires than even garlic.

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Max: You know, I think tonight might be the night I try to eat my dinner blindfolded.
      Alex: But then you wouldn't know what you were eating...You should do it! (to Jerry) Dad, give me the socks you're wearing and some butter! GO!
      Max: I don't need butter to eat socks!

    • Jerry: Oh my gosh! What if we only have time to save one? Alex is our daughter... but Harper has so much more potential.
      Theresa: We both know it would be Harper who would take care of us at our old age. We'll talk about it on our way.

    • Harper: Look at you. Cloudy day, so you're out without an umbrella.
      Juliet: Excuse me?
      Harper: (whispers) I know you're a vampire. (normal voice) I'm Harper. I just wanna let you know that there are no hard feelings.
      Juliet: No hard feelings about what?
      Harper: Oh, Justin didn't tell you? Oh. That is just like him, with trying to spare other people's feelings. Heh. He and I have had an on and off relationship for years. We're off now, which is why you guys are on, so I'm cool.
      (Harper puts her hands on her hips and reveals a garlic necklace under her shirt)
      Juliet: Whoa! Whoa! What's with the garlic? We were just havin' a conversation.
      Harper: Sorry. I just wasn't sure how this whole thing was gonna go.
      Juliet: So you made a garlic necklace?
      Harper: No, I actually had it. It's for this pasta outfit that I'm working on.
      Juliet: Oh-ho. You're the food-for-clothes girl. Yeah. Justin has talked about you.
      (Juliet walks away)
      Harper: (whispers) Yes!

    • Cindy: You know, with all the time Juliet's been spending with your brother, we could use and extra hand around here. What would you say to a part-time job here at the Late Nite Bite?
      Alex: A job? Well, doesn't sound like something I'd do...but it would get me out of family exercise night.
      Cindy: Oh, look at you. So clever and cunning. Heh. Sometimes, we wish Juliet had more of that.
      Alucard: Yeah. In a lot of ways, you're probably more like a vampire than she is.
      Alex: (flattered) Oh, thank you.

    • Justin: You're totally checking out my neck.
      Juliet: No, I'm not. I had a big breakfast.
      Justin: You are so cute.
      Juliet: No, you are.

    • (after hearing that Alex and Harper are working for Juliet's parents)
      Juliet: Okay, um, look, there's on easy way to say this, so I'm just gonna come right out with it.
      Justin: Okay.
      Juliet: My parents might be planning to drink their blood.
      Justin: I love you, too. I, uh... You didn't say what I thought you were gonna say.
