Andi: Hey! Nice toolbox! I have a high impact fully-gasketed jx150 myself.
Emma: Oh, it's not for tools, it's for my glitter.
Andi: Glitter? (Emma opens it and shows Andi) Uh, my eyes!
Emma: C'mon, don't you scrapbook? (pulls out glitter glue) I used this to paint my shoes!
Andi: How about we rewind? Hi, I'm Andi. I live down the street.
Emma (shaking her hand): Hi, I'm Emma. Nice to meet you.
Andi (sees her struggling): Need a little help?
Emma: Yea sure, grab a box. (Andi drops a box and everything falls out)
Andi: Well, look at that? You got half a library in here! (Emma picks up the Hexoren for the first time, and it glows)
Emma: Whoa, what?
Andi: What's the matter?
Emma: Nothing, it's just, looks like this book is glowing or something.
Andi: Oh! (picking it up)
Emma: I think it was my mom's Maria Alonso .
Daniel: I hate math. And the new teacher looks like a total snooze!
Emma: That would be my dad. (sighs)
Daniel: A snooze, that's a slang. You know, fun, cool, sick?
Emma: That's okay. I'll make sure to make fun of your mom when I meet her. I mean not that I'd meet her because you-- I mean just like hypothetically if I ran into her on the street or something. And she'd be like "I'm Daniel's mom!" and I'd be like, "Oh, really? Cool! You're sick!" I mean sick in a cool way (laughs) Okay, can we rewind back to-- well, back to even before we met, because I've been embarassing myself since then?
Daniel: Don't worry. It's cute. Awkward. But cute.
Ursula: Maddie, calm down! (Maddie calms down. The storm stops). And so it begins. Finally.
Maddie: Mom! What was that?
Ursula: (Looking confused) Ah, must be some kind of El-Nino? Uh, El-Nino's brother-in-law. El Cunado?
Maddie: Well, he owes me a new pair of shoes.
Ursula: How many shoes can a 14-year-old possibly need?
Sophie: 399 pairs! One for every day of the year.
Andi (after seeing the brush appear in Emma's hand): Okay, if something else moves, I swear I'm going home.
Emma: It's okay! Just, think happy thoughts!
Andi (closing her eyes and thinking): Okay. Uh, great white sharks, zombies, hockey games, my toolbox, more zombies-
Emma (irritated): Those are not happy thoughts! Think, glitter, balloons, sweet tarts, rainbows, puppies, and pink hearts!
Andi (sarcastically): Cute, even did a little rhyme there. (they both heard her closet move) Uh, what was that?
Emma: (after the closet opens and balloons, hearts, etc. pop out. They scream) What was that?
Andi: I'm not sure, but my great grandmother used to tell me these stories about...
Emma: About what?
Andi (whispering): Witches.
Emma (laughing): Witches, and you believe her?
Andi: Do you have a better explanation for any of this?
Emma: Yes. There's a *motions to something* and it, uh *motions with hands* and then, that makes, voila.
Andi: Oh yeah, that makes way more sense than what I said! Look, you wished for all those hearts, and they appeared, exactly how grammy grams described.
