Alex Russo, you kneel before

the Crystals of Justice

where you are charged with treason for

attempting to destroy the mortal world.

I'm telling you, you have the wrong wizard.


Ok, I am right here. You

do not have to yell.

What I was trying to say is that,

ok, maybe some bad things happened,

and maybe it was because of me, but

that doesn't mean it was my fault.

I'd make a terrible lawyer.

Your fate has been decided.

The Crystal Cavern of Justice

hereby find you guilty!

Wait! No! Isn't there some way

we can replay what happened

so you would know I'm innocent?

Well, almost innocent.

You're not speaking of the

time vortex, are you?

Well, if that's what you call

a rewind button, then yeah.

Very well. We will send you back

to the moment this incident began.

All right. Well, get your

popcorn and licorice

because you're going to

like how this got started.

I just love drive-in movies. You can

yell at the screen and nobody cares.

Hey, genius, the walls are oozing

maggots, why are you taking a shower?


Your own personal drive-in?!

Get rid of it now.

Come on, dad. I can get you your own car

and you can watch the movie with us.

I can get you a Churro truck.

Lose it.


And whose car was that?

I don't know, but there's

some guy out on Waverly Place

who's been looking for his car for about

an hour, show me some love, Harper.

- Yeah.

- Harper, don't high-five her.

What she did was wrong and

unbelievably selfish.

Well, we left the guy

half a pack of licorice.

No, we didn't.

Dad, what's the big deal? I've

always done stuff like this.

Right, but now that

you're The Family Wizard,

it's time to stop using

magic for selfish reasons.

Now give me that popcorn.

Thank you so much, Mason.

Ok, you and Alex can hang up the banner.

Harper, get the ice cream

cake out of the freezer.

Jerry, stop eating popcorn off the floor.

Wait, did you say party? For who?

I have a fair inkling.

Another party for Justin?!

We're just so excited about

him taking over WizTech.

It's a big deal.

Yeah. I guess you're right.

It's not like, you know,

actually winning the

family competition and

becoming the full wizard.

Since nobody ever threw me a party.

Hey, I didn't get a party

or get to become a wizard.

I just got these all-you-can-eat

bologna scraps.

Mm-mm. Maybe I am the winner.

Come on, everybody. We've

got a lot of work to do.

Justin's going to be here soon.

All right, I'm done. Where's my magazine?

Mason, rub my shoulders.

That was hard work.

Hey! I just told you,

magic is not for getting what you

want or using it for selfish reasons.

Mason, stop rubbing her shoulders!

That's right, Mija, you should use your

magic to make other people's lives easier.

I know a pretty Latina who would love

to never have to do laundry again.


Sorry. Your father's right.

It's time to grow up.

"Grow up?" Everybody knows people

who grow up too fast are miserable.

I mean, look at Harper.

She's been doing her parents' laundry

since she was in the second grade.

Oh, see, the laundry I didn't mind so much.

It was rotating the tires

on the minivan that just...

Really got to me.

Where's Justin? He should've

been here by now.

You mean he's not here?

I'm so bored I thought he was here

telling one of his nerdy stories

that always ends with "hey,

wake up, everybody!"

I'm so sorry for the intrusion.

I'm Justin's friend Dominic.

He asked me to give you a message.

He is too busy at WizTech and

unfortunately cannot come.

Ok. Give us the message.

Uh... that was the message.

Ok. Can we start from the top? Because

this guy is all over the place.

- So is Justin all right?

- Oh, yes, Mrs. Russo. Justin is fine.

It's just more difficult for someone with

his spectacular talents to get away.

Now, I don't usually use

the word "spectacular,"

but in Justin's case, spectacular.

Justin isn't coming? What are we

gonna do with the ice cream cake.

Oh, I'm sure you'll think

of something, Jerry.

Excuse me, you must be Alex Russo.

You're quite famous in the Wizard World

but I had no idea you were so...


Oh, come on. I'm not that famous.

Dominic. Nice to meet you, mate.

I'm Mason Greyback.

Perhaps you've heard of me,

Alex's Werewolf boyfriend.

Boyfriend? You're a lucky man.

Yes, I am. A lucky Werewolf.

Well, it seems like I've made

this awkward, forgive me.

It was an honor meeting you, Alex.

So long, everyone.


Boy, he was the most polite

wizard I have ever met.

And easy on the eyes.

Reminded me of a young me.

You know, I think he was into you, Alex.

Oh. No, no, no, no.

Yeah. No, no, no, no.

I can't believe Justin's not coming.

I wanted him to be here

for my big announcement.

A while ago, I got an invitation

from my cousin, Carmela, in Italy,

inviting us to a Russo family reunion.

It's ok, dad. What's your announcement?

- That was the announcement.

- Oh, great, now dad's all over the place.

Aw, Jerry, you're taking me on a

romantic trip to Italy, I love you.

Well... actually, I'm

taking the whole family.

Why? They don't know we have kids.

But, Theresa, it's a family reunion.

Or should I say...

Riunione di famiglia?

Please don't do that, dad.

It's almost as annoying as

when you say "mootsa-rella".

Well, you guys have fun.

I'll just stay here and read or something.

Yeah, and I'll just stay here
