  • One of the better ones from Season 1

    This episode, being the first WOWP produced, was one of the better episodes of Season 1. I didn't really find Alex's plot enjoyable nor was I able to really get into it that much. However, it did have one or two scenes, especially the scene where Alex and Jerry go flying and he starts shouting at her. Justin's plot made me laugh quite a lot and so I found it very funny. Apart from that being said, this episode should be given a go and is one of the best of Season 1, which isn't that great.moreless
  • pretty good episode but it was rushed a little bit

    pretty good episode but it was rushed a little bit. Alex stumbles upon Jerry's old magic carpet and convinces him to give her flying lessons. i didnt find the beginning very funny. it was rushed a little bit to me. the middle was ok. i was pretty funny when Tresa started singing on Justin's guitar was pretty funny. the family having a silent dinner was pretty funny. and when Justin says he's a big boy and when he's in his room and freaked out with the stuff he put in it was hilarious. Minus the beginning the episode was pretty good.moreless
  • Daddy's little girl can't always get the way she wants.

    That's the lesson this episode teaches. You can't always expect to get what you want in life. And the teach this lesson well in this episode. I like that Alex has trouble communicating with her dad, when Jerry doesn't want to lose her little girl. They do that plot a lot, but they really did it great here.

    Its also nice that for once, Alex and Justin work on the same side so that Justin can be nice and help out his sister. and thanks to Justin, Alex is great on flying the carpet and her and Jerry are better than ever again. So I believe this episode was really great and kind of touching, and one of my favorites.moreless
  • This episode was totally hilarious and I really loved it.

    Justin and Max are putting up wallpaper for Alex's room. Alex finds a magic carpet in the basement and puts it in her room. Justin is treated unfairly and is ignored by his father. Justin finds an animals head in the garbage. Alex wants her dad to teach her how to fly a magic carpet. When Alex asks Justin how his new room is coming along he said he sleeps like a baby there. Justin gives Max the animal head. Max's mother doens't let him keep the animals head. When there mom was talking to Max she said one of my favorite lines- When I was in Justin's room that thing was checking me out.moreless
  • funny

    Alex finds an old carpet that turns out to be a magic carpet. She asks her dad to teach her how to fly it, but he says that she's too young. But she convinces him after showing him a cute face. Justin tries to make his room look man enough by using manly like artifacts in his room. I had a great time watching this episode, it's really funny. The story was funny. The jokes were pretty good. The actors were doing great looking funny without looking pretentious. I had a great time with this episode, I can't wait for the next episode.moreless

  • QUOTES (10)

    • Jerry: Question number 1. What kind of cloud should you fly into? (stops Alex answering) Heh, trick question; none of them. Because it's very easy to become confused in a cloud. Which way's up? Which way's down? I don't know. Crash!
      Alex: What'd you crash into in a cloud?
      Jerry: A confused wizard on a carpet going the other way.

    • Alex: During my lesson, Dad got all tense and frustrated like he does when he's around you and your dolls.
      Justin: Action figures. Collectibles. In their original packaging.

      Alex: Unless you wanna be Daddy's Little Girl, I can't help ya. But that shirt's got you half way there.

    • (Jerry gets comfortable in his baseball-glove chair)
      Jerry: (sigh of comfort) Fits like a glove. Hey! It is!

    • (Justin runs into the room with a Tiki mask and an acoustic guitar)
      Justin: Hey, check it out! This Tiki dude's gonna man up my room. And so's this guitar once I smash it and hang it on the wall.
      Theresa: (about the guitar) You're not smashing anything! That's mine! I used to play it when I sang in my all-girl mariachi band at Las Pinatas! (strums badly) Ah-hey!
