Episode Chronology




Potion Commotion

"Pop Me and We Both Go Down" is the 10th episode of season one of Wizards of Waverly Place, and the 10th of the overall series. It first aired on January 6, 2008.


When Justin gets a big zit on his forehead right before the school dance, Alex tries to get rid of it but accidentally uses the animation spell on it instead. Now Justin has to deal with the trouble that his talking zit gets him into at the dance! Meanwhile, Alex accidentally animates her father's trophy and must search for it so that can learn the reversal spell to un-animate Justin's zit. Chaos ensues, but in the end, Justin finds out that Miranda, his date to the dance, has a zit too. 




Animation spell

  • Incantation: Murrieta-animata
  • Description: Brings any inanimate object to life.
  • Incantation: Garibay Immobilitay
  • Description: Takes an inanimate object previously brought to life and makes it inanimate again.

Production Notes


  • Murrieta Animata gets its name from Peter Murrieta, the program's producer.
  • Theresa's zit cure has a name. It's called Zit Paste.
  • This is the final appearance of Miranda in the series.
  • Eva Longoria is mentioned four times in this episode.
  • In this episode, Jerry comments that Theresa is older than him by saying "Yeah, like your mother" to Justin's older woman comment. But in the episode Journey to the Center of Mason, Theresa calls Jerry an old man and Jerry replies that he is only two months older than her. This can be considered a goof.
