Francisco (walking in right after Emma turned Andi back into a human): Okay, what's going on? Is she eating paper?
Emma: Uh, she was, uh, hungry.
Francisco: Oh, so she just decided to eat paper?
Emma: Well, it's my chemistry homework, so it's full of calcium, sodium and magnesium! (laughs) Get it? It has minerals, so, never mind.
Francisco: Is my cooking really that bad? (walks out of room)
Emma: Oh, that was so close! Andi I'm so sorry I turned you into a goat. I didn't think my spell would actually work, I hope you're not mad!
Andi (ecstatic): That was AWESOME! Let's try another one. Turn me into a cheetah, no wait, a kimono dragon, no wait a saber tooth tiger! (Emma grins)
Katie: Maddie, calm down. Anger is not good for your complexion.
Sophie: Is that why her face is so splotchy?
Maddie: That girl is ruining everything. She's gonna get it.
Katie: Um, I think freezing her solid would count as her getting it.
Maddie: But it's gotta be something that makes her stay away from Daniel, for good. Emma ignores everything that I say, so make a huge storm that will send her away! (her clothes start flying around the room, and Katie and Sophie stare in awe)
Ursula (coming in): Maddie!! (the clothes fall down)
Katie: That was awesome!
Ursula: So, do they know?
Sophie: No Mrs. Van Pelt, we definitely don't know that Maddie's a witch.
Ursula (pulling Katie and Sophie aside): You three realize, you have got to keep this a secret, right?
Maddie: They won't say anything.
Andi: If we know of two witches at Iridium High, do you- do you think there could be more?
Emma: Sure! Why not?
Andi: (faking an evil voice) I want an extra large pizza, with lot's of meat-sa!
Emma: Great rhyming!
Andi: Just checking, you never know!
