Credit Check

"Report Card" is the 17th episode of season one of Wizards of Waverly Place, and the 17th of the overall series. It first aired on June 29, 2008.


Alex, Justin, and Max get their wizard report cards. Justin gets an overall A (with a B+ in rhyming spells), Max gets a C and Alex gets an F. To hide the fact that she did not do well, Alex tries to destroy the report card which due to being magical continues to reappear undamaged where her parents will find it. In a panic, Alex turns her parents into guinea pigs right before they find the card. After Headmaster Crumbs finds out Alex lied about her parents and her report card, he suspends Alex's powers. Meanwhile, Max and Justin lose the guinea pigs, unknown to them, they are their parents.


The episode starts out with Jerry giving Alex, Max, and Justin an exam. After finishing the written part, they move over to the next piece of the exam. The object was to turn a guinea pig into a dove. Justin successfully makes it, and Max at least turns the guinea pig into a dove, even if with the minor problem of it coughing up snot. Unfortunately, Alex turns her guinea pig into a brick. Justin claims that he is the best wizard and will become the family wizard. Alex teases Justin and says that even if the rules changed so that only girls could become the family wizard, he would still win. Justin countered by saying that Alex doesn't take magic seriously.

Professor Crumbs comes in and collects their exams. After asking why their father didn't collect their exams and grade them, Alex starts batting her eyelashes. Professor Crumbs replies that he is collecting them so that 'someone' won't get a better grade by flirting. Justin teases Alex and mimics her. The credits start rolling.

The next scene finds Alex sitting on the couch and Max bursting in with the wizard report cards.
