(SINGING) Oh, yeah


Oh, oh, it's magic

When I'm with you

Oh, it's magic

Oh, oh, it's magic

Just a little magic

You know it's true

I got a hold on you

Justin, I found your bag.

Do you mind if I tear through it

and look at all your personal stuff?

Okay, thanks!

No way!






What is going on?

Is everyone all right?



Awesome! Dad, whatever it is,

can I keep it?

I knew it!

Alex was going through my bag,

so I put a spell on it. Deny it now.

Of course.

An enchanted messenger bag.

How did we ever manage without one?

But we're going to have a great... Do it.

Let's watch her run around.

Magic was used to protect the bag.

Reverse the spell, release the hag.

Okay, fine.

I went through your stupid bag.


But look at what I found.

The family wand

and the book of Forbidden Spells.

Justin took it out of the lair

without permission.

My respect for you is increasing.

I didn't take it. Dad gave it to me.

And it's shrinking again.

Dad, how could you give this to Justin?

It's forbidden.

You said

that we weren't allowed to touch it.

You said that we weren't ready.

I think by "we" he meant "you."

Alex, if one day, possibly, you pass

andlor show up to an exam,

you can use the spell book

and the family wand, too.

It's just they're extremely powerful

and it takes a certain level

of responsibility...

But I'm responsible enough.

I can be trusted.

I think this is completely unfair

to me and Max. Right, Max?

Dude. Max!


Dude, you are so not helping right now.

And I am so getting one of those!

Well, I don't really have an opinion

about the great wand whoop-de-doo.

But if anybody should be playing

nice right now, it's you.

- Don't push. We need to go, honey.

- Yes, dear.

I'm gonna need you to return the wand

and spell book

back to where you found them.

Thank you.

Fine. I didn't even want it anyway.

Total lie. Wait.

Where's everybody going?

I want you guys done packing

by the time we get back.


Dude, this is gonna be

the best vacation ever.

- Are there gonna be volcanoes?

- No.

Then how great can it be?

- Hello, Mr. And Mrs. Russo.

- Hey, Harper. That's...

- Hey, what's Harper doing here?

- Oh, uh... Right.

Listen, I was thinking since you're

packing for a trip I don't have to go on...

What did I just say to you?

- When? All the way back there?

- Don't push.

I already told you,

you can't go to that party.

It's all the way in Brooklyn.

I don't know the girl's parents.

But, Mom,

everybody is going to this party.

That's true.

They've handed out like 1,000 fliers.

Why are you destroying my life?

Which is the same thing you said to me

when I tried to force you

to go on vacation with us.

Well, it worked then.

Alex, honey,

I know that you're growing up

and you want some independence,

and I know that you're gonna be fine

at Harper's while we're gone.

But you have to understand that

leaving you behind is very hard for me.

So just go easy on me, okay?

Dad, please. I'll just pop in.

It'll be so quick...

No popping.

You heard what your mother said.


And just so we're clear,

no walking, flying, teleporting

or popping out of this building

while we're gone. Is that understood?

- Understood.

- Okay.


- Sorry about that.

- It's okay.

We can still find something super fun

yet age-appropriate to do.

No, we're still going.

But your parents said

we can't leave the building.



For the record, I just want to say

I think this is a really, really bad idea.

Only if by bad you mean genius.

I love loopholes.



- Can't we slow this thing down?

- Yeah... No.

When they put the tables in

they must have taken the controls out,

but don't worry, it's enchanted

and knows where it's going.

Then why are we heading uptown?

Forty-second. Forty-ninth.


Brooklyn's in the other direction

on the other side of the river.

Stupid spells. Hang on.

Wait. My bad.

I had the map upside down. All right.

Misguided directions

we shouldn't have taken.

Hurry up

and get us to Bergen Street Station.

These forbidden spells

are so super user-friendly.

Forbidden spells? Why would you

use something called a forbidden spell?

It's forbidden, and I know this

because it's right there in the title.

It's not really a big deal

when you have the right wand.

- Well, do you?

- No.

Apparently, it's too powerful

and I'm not responsible enough

and I can't be trusted.

Whatever that means.


No, you go first! You go first!

Oh, my God.

- No! What are you...

- Harper...


Seriously! Who designed this subway?


I did it. I can't believe I did it.

I saved us.

I can't believe it.

No, you didn't. I did.

Justin, thank you, thank you,

thank you!

Harper, don't thank him.

He just did it

so he can run off and tell on me.

Okay, normally, yeah, I would do that.

It's pretty funny when she gets all...

But I'm not about to go tell Mom

and Dad something

that's gonna ruin their vacation

one night before it happens.

For once, I'm not gonna let you

destroy something important to me.

Then we're good because

they're not gonna hear it from me.

And you know

why they're not gonna hear it from me?

Didn't we just have this conversation?
