Ursula: Maddie-winky you're going to be late for school. What's taking you so long?
Maddie: Ugh, worst, night, ever. I had nightmares that Daniel and smoothie-girl were together, and they kept dumping smoothies all over my head.
Ursula: Aww, well, did you talk to Daniel last night?
Maddie: No, he wouldn't respond to any of my e-messages.
Ursula: Did you try sending him one of those e-musical medleys with the romantic songs?
Maddie (gasping): NO! I should've thought of that. Anyways, I realize that I have the power to get Daniel back and get rid of smoothie girl all at the same time!
Diego: It's a brilliant idea.
Andi: Thank you!
Daniel: You didn't think of it, Tony did.
Tony: Guys, guys, wait a sec. This is just a hypothetical.
Mac: Whoa, watch your mouth! There's girls present. (directed at Andi and winks at her, which leads her to scrunch up her face)
Tony: No, I wasn't actually proposing to do it.
Diego: Yeah, but it's perfect because we have chemistry right before math.
Andi: Let's do it guys!

Andi (startled): No, I was just, uh, sitting by your desk, and all your glitter got stuck to my.....
Emma (excited): Uh huh.
Andi: Not to change the subject or anything but, um what happened with Maddie today?
Emma: Oh, the usual. (mocks her) 'Daniel's mine, you looked left, you're lying! I'm a witch!' (snaps her fingers)
Andi: Sounds about rig-wait, wait Maddie's a what?
Emma: Well, I overheard her say that her mom told her she's a witch.
Andi: Maddie? A witch?! That's the most terrifying thing I've heard since, since well ever!
