  • Trivia

    • There is a magical stop light to allow birds to pass by in safety during Justin and Alex's flight on the magic carpet.

    • In this episode, Justin often attempts to earn the nickname "The J-Man".

    • Wizardry Lesson: Flying Carpets

    • Goof: Continuity: When Alex says that Jerry has never yelled at her before. But we've seen Alex getting yelled at multiple times.

    • Goof: Factual Errors: When Max and Justin come from the side door they said they just finished putting up Alex's pink fur wallpaper. But if they just finished putting up the wallpaper they would have come from upstairs since Alex's room is upstairs.

    • Goof: Think About It: At the end of the show, Jerry says he was watching the ball game and the ball never came down. This could only have happened if Justin caught the ball, but instead the ball hit him in the face and bounced back down to the stadium so it did "come down".

    • Goof: Continuity: In this episode, during dinner, Max asked his mom if he didn't have to take a bath that night, but in the beginning of the episode "Movies," Alex says that Justin was the only one in the family who still took baths. So, if that were true, then Max would take showers not baths.

    • Goof: Continuity: When the ball hits Justin, Alex looks away with a deadpan expression. When it cuts to her saying "Yeah, you got it," she is suddenly looking at Justin again.

    • Spell(s) featured: Sweater Appearing spell. Incantation: Cashmeris Appearis
      Description: Used to make a sweater instantly appear.
      Used By:
      Alex: Alex uses this episode to poof up a "cute" sweater.

    • Jerry loves to have breakfast for dinner.

    • This episode was filmed on March 3, 2007, which was the first day of filming.

  • Quotes

    • 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.

    • Theresa: (telling Max he can't keep Justin's pig head) I'm sorry honey, but it's terrible and cruel what they do to those animals! Plus, when I was in Justin's room, that thing was checking me out.

    • Justin: (about Jerry) He just said no to Daddy's Little Girl!
      Max: Maybe it's backwards day. Hey Dad, can I have a cellphone?
      Jerry: What? No!
      Justin: (to Max) It's not that day.

    • Alex: I'm gonna do something nice for you now.
      Justin: What?
      Alex: Don't use your toothpaste tomorrow morning.
      Justin: Why?
      Alex: It's not toothpaste.

    • 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.

    • Justin: You've gotta show me how you do that.
      Alex: Unless you wanna be Daddy's Little Girl, I can't help ya. But that shirt's got you half way there.

    • Jerry(to Justin and Max): Come on guys, focus. To do this job right, you need to focus, you need intensity, and a root beer.

    • Theresa: (to Justin, referring to Jerry and Alex) I'm worried about them. They've been gone for an hour.
      Justin: Don't worry.
      Theresa: If they're not back in ten minutes, I want you to get the broom!
      (Max walks in)
      Max: There's a magic flying broom too?
      Theresa: No. I sweep when I'm nervous, and I have a special broom for it!

    • (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!
      Justin: Wow! I didn't know you played the guitar.
      Theresa: Yeah. (plays the guitar badly; an annoyed Jerry grabs the whammy bar)
      Jerry: She doesn't.
