When a new sandwich shop called the "Late Night Bite" opens on Waverly Place, Justin falls in love with the owner's daughter, Juliet. But when his family finds out that they are vampires, his parents say they can't date. Meanwhile, Alex tries to get rid of Max because of his annoying impressions and tries to send him to a camp.
When a new sandwich shop, the Late Nite Bite, opens in Waverly Place, Justin is sent to spy on them. Justin falls in love with the owner's daughter Juliet, who he learns is a vampire. When the competition between his family's restaurant and the Late Nite Bite keeps him from dating her, Justin turns to Alex who tells him to use magic. Justin then takes Juliet out on a date during his twenty minute break from work, but only uses magic to add another five minutes to the break.
Alex, meanwhile, tries to come up with a plan to get rid of Max and his annoying celebrity impressions. Justin and Juliet find that they have a lot in common, and Juliet decides to tell Justin that she and her family are vampires, which Justin already knew; Juliet also knew that Justin was a wizard by his scent. Having such a great time together, Juliet decides that she is going to tell her parents about Justin, and Justin agrees to do the same. It doesn't go well however, when Juliet's parents come to the Sub Station, demanding that Justin must stay away from their daughter. Noticing how heartbroken Justin is about his separation from Juliet, Alex helps Justin by giving him magic glasses that will disguise him as a different person, so he could secretly date Juliet. The date goes well, but Justin's cover is blown when Alex takes back the glasses, needing them for her plan to get Max sent to summer camp.
Upon discovering that Juliet's date was Justin, Juliet's parents continue to prohibit their relationship, until Justin and Juliet finally convince them to allow them to date. Justin's parents, however, are still not convinced, believing that Justin is betraying the family. Upon being called the "good child", Alex sticks up for Justin and convinces Mom and Dad to accept the relationship. Jerry and Theresa then realize that their feud with the Van Heusens is not as important as their son's happiness, and they allow Justin and Juliet to be together. In the end, while Justin and Juliet are on a date, Justin tells Max of Alex's plan to send him to an underwater sea camp for the summer. Max thanks Alex by saying that he will start working on an impression of her all summer, much to Alex's dismay.
