Just Add Magic (2015) s02e12 Episode Script

Just Add History

1 Previously on "Just Add Magic" This is one mystery we didn't solve.
- Chuck.
- What? That's the name of the boy.
Chuck Hankins.
He went missing in 1965.
And Willie Thompson said Chuck had no family looking out for him.
Guess I have a knack for this magic stuff.
You know the Traveler.
Is that what she's calling herself these days? This all started long before you.
What I want is far bigger than any of you.
You're simply in my way.
I'm sorry it's come to this, Chuck, but you left us no choice.
[wind blowing] What did you do? Enjoy Lavender Heights.
You're never leaving.
Hi, Jake.
Kelly: My gut's been telling me that there's something wrong with Jake.
Ida: What are you saying? Kelly: The Jake who's in your kitchen is not our Jake.
Anybody hungry? I can't believe that's Chuck.
He must have taken over Jake to get out of Lavender Heights.
It's actually genius.
Wish I had thought of that.
- Yeah, but how did he do it? - I know.
- It's just so weird.
- I know.
- This reeks of schnitzel.
- I know.
You're right.
Walk In My Shoes Schnitzel.
We used that recipe once when we were your age to sneak into a movie.
Grandma, you snuck into a movie? I wasn't always your grandmother, Kelly.
Okay, so if Chuck cooked the Walk In My Shoes Schnitzel, then all we have to do is get him to say Chuck three times in a row, and it'll break the spell.
But how are you gonna get him to say that without him getting suspicious? I have an idea.
She sells seashells by the seashore.
It's easy.
Well, maybe if you say it once, but not three times fast.
What are you guys talking about? Hey, Jake.
We're doing tongue twisters.
- Wanna try one? - Sure, why not? You have to say, "How much wood could a woodchuck chuck "if a woodchuck could chuck wood?" How much wood could a woodchuck chuck, if a woodchuck could chuck wood? Easy.
Well, not three times fast, it's not.
How much wood could a woodchuck chuck, if a woodchuck could chuck wood? How much wood could a woodchuck chuck, if a woodchuck could chuck wood? Faster or it doesn't count.
How much wood could a woodchuck chuck chuck, if a woodchuck could chuck wood? Wait.
That wasn't right.
I think I said woodchuck too many times.
Three, to be exact.
But that-- that's okay.
Well, as much fun as this is, I am beat.
See you guys in the a.
- Bye.
- Bye.
Have a good night.
Guys, he said Chuck three times fast, and he's still Jake.
Or fake Jake.
Or Chake.
- Or Chuck.
- [bell jingles] Uh, let's go with Chake.
That means he didn't eat the Walk In My Shoes Schnitzel.
And we still have no idea how Chuck became Jake.
Breaking this spell is gonna be harder than we thought.
So, we're all in agreement.
No more eating Jake's food.
I want to strangle him.
You can't.
That's still Jake's body, and you don't want to hurt him.
Get hold of your temper, Ida, we need to play it smart.
Yeah, we all have to act normal until we can figure out how to reverse the spell.
[sighs] Fine.
I'll just try to stay away from him.
You can't.
Don't you have plans at Le Grande Falls to take him to lunch today? No way! Ida, if you cancel at the last minute, he'll get suspicious.
And you did buy him that nice jacket.
I'm on my way to return it.
Luckily, I kept the receipt.
Please, Mama P.
We need him away so we can figure out how to save Jake.
And we don't want Chuck cooking for your customers.
Who knows? He could be spelling them.
And maybe when you're at lunch, you can figure out what his plan is, because we're at a loss over here.
- It's one meal.
- One very expensive meal.
Not to mention the money I'm losing by closing this place for the afternoon.
Well, you're not exactly slammed in here.
There's no need to put salt in my wounds, Darbie.
- [bell jingles] - Oh, speak of the devil.
- Hi, Jake.
- It's Jake.
Jake, buddy.
How's it goin'? Why are you all acting weird? We're just really excited that you get to go to Le Grande Falls today.
- And jealous.
- Mm-hm.
And we wanted to see you off.
Well, I'm excited, too.
Thanks again for taking me, Mama P.
My pleasure.
[stammers] I got you a present.
It's right there.
You got me a jacket? Only because there's a dress code at Le Grande Falls.
Thanks, Mama P.
If it doesn't fit, I could always return it, and get my money back.
It fits perfectly.
So, how do I look? Like Jake.
Only different.
Well, I guess there's nothing to do but go to this lunch.
[clears throat] You two have fun.
[giggles] [bell jingles] She looks like she's going to the dentist instead of the nicest restaurant in town.
We don't have much time.
We need to figure out a recipe to save Jake.
While you do that, we'll go to Chuck's trailer in Lavender Heights.
Maybe we can find a clue as to how he pulled this off.
Don't do anything hasty while we're gone.
Wh-- Why is everyone looking at me? Okay, maybe I've done one or two spells on my own, but it's really Mama P that we should be worried about.
Yeah, Chuck's impersonating the one person she actually cares about.
This isn't gonna be good.
$16 for a bowl of soup.
You can buy five Jakewiches for that.
Yes, you sure can.
You sure you want to eat here? This place is really expensive.
Of course.
Get whatever you want.
Except the soup.
Can I start with the shrimp cocktail, and get the surf-n-turf? That's lobster and steak, right? Yes, Jake.
It's lobster and steak.
Okay, we need to figure out how long Chuck has been Jake, and what we might have said to him.
I've said a lot of things.
Me, too.
We better retrace our steps over the past few days.
Okay, let's see.
On Thursday, I saw Jake.
I told him I was worried about my new school, and he said, "Hannah, I've known you how long? Ten years?" And I go, "Uh, I think it's closer to three years.
And he responded with, "Right.
It feels longer.
"I remember my first day of grammar school, "and I was afraid I wouldn't make friends, but I did.
"You'll be okay.
" Grammar school? Yeah, now I see how odd that was.
He was right about one thing.
You're gonna do great at your new school.
I hate to admit it, but Chake's a good listener.
Well, when I saw Jake the other day, he made me feel worse.
I went to see him after you guys took the book away from me.
Darbie: Do we really need to relive that? Kelly: We do.
When I told Jake, he goes, "I can't believe they would do that do you.
" And I responded, "Well, I'm sure they meant well.
" He didn't think so.
He said, "You're too nice, Kelly.
I'd be super mad.
"Haven't you done a lot of good with the book? "Where do you think they hid it?" And then I said, "No idea.
"Probably at Hannah's.
Darbie loses everything.
" Hey, I don't lose everything.
Okay, maybe some things.
Now that I think about it, Jake would have never acted like that.
He was just trying to get me more upset.
He was also trying to find out where the book was.
What about you? I saw him a few times.
He was actually pretty nice to me.
I forgot my money, so he gave me a free Jakerito.
The next time I saw Jake, I forgot my phone.
He usually just lets me borrow his, but he didn't have his phone that day.
I said, "But you always have your cell phone.
" And he goes, "I left it at home, I guess.
"Here, have a free Jakerito.
" The next day, I had forgot we made plans to hang out, but he wasn't upset.
- Instead, he-- - Kelly: Let me guess.
He offered you a free Jakerito? There's one common theme in all those memories, Darbie.
I know.
I really need to stop forgetting things.
The free food should have been a clue.
Jake never gives away free food.
Does anyone else feel really bad that we didn't know Jake was Chake? We were so wrapped up in our own drama, we didn't see our best friend was spelled.
We haven't been very good friends, have we? But we're gonna figure out how to fix it.
You're right.
We will.
I just wish we knew why he was doing this.
Why wouldn't he? As Jake, he had access to us, the book, the spice pantry-- And it got him out of Lavender Heights.
As far as villain moves go, it's pretty solid.
He gave us so much free food, what if he's been spelling us? I feel okay.
Have you guys felt angry or suspicious, or the need to only tell the truth? No, but there are other spells.
You're fine, Hannah.
I think we'd know if we were spelled.
We need to find a recipe to save Jake.
Well, he clearly didn't feel the need to clean up after himself.
Maybe because he wasn't planning on coming back.
Remember these? Little Judy's.
They were so unhealthy.
I remember your mom wouldn't let you have 'em.
Chuck used to sneak them to me at school.
Oh, what a fool I was.
Oh, don't beat yourself up, Gina.
He fooled us all.
[gasping] Over here.
I'm guessing these are the remnants of whatever magical recipe he was cooking.
Let's take this back to the house.
We need to figure out what's in this dish.
You're still hungry? I didn't think it was possible, either, but the food is so good.
It's like you're eating for two.
Hey, uh, thanks again for bringing me here, Mama P.
My pleasure.
I'm having fun.
Hey, uh, what do you think's going on with Kelly? What do you mean? Hannah and Darbie mentioned she's been using magic too much.
Do you think she is? She's a smart girl.
She'll figure it out.
- Why do you ask? - No reason.
You know, Kelly mentioned that they're rotating the book between their houses.
I really think they should include the OCs in the rotation, unless they already are.
I haven't seen the book.
Wherever it is, it's hidden well.
I just hope it doesn't go to Darbie.
For the book's sake.
Once we save Jake, what do we do about Chuck? One step at a time.
Let's focus on Jake, and then we can worry about Chuck and whatever he's planning.
I found one.
Kick Him Out Chicken Soup.
Hey, there's a riddle.
"When an unwanted guest is hanging about, "a bite of this soup will soon kick him out.
" "Just know with a stew so warm and hearty, "the guest might not fondly remember the party.
" Chuck's definitely an unwanted guest.
Well, maybe we could use this to kick Chuck out of Jake's body.
Well, it's worth a shot.
The recipe calls for livonian cayenne and elysian parsley.
I bet Miss Silvers has those in her spice cabinet.
- I thought my room was a mess.
- Hi, girls.
What are you doing with all this old stuff, Mrs.
Quinn? Well, as head of the historical society, I have to catalog everything.
And then I choose what goes up in the Saffron Falls exhibit in City Hall.
Is this Main Street? Yeah.
In the 1800s.
Look, Mama P's used to be an old timey inn.
Technically, back then it would have been a present timey in.
Mom, this looks like a lot of work.
Yeah, it is a lot of work.
Bringing anything in Saffron Falls up to the 21st century is hard.
I'd settle for the 20th century.
I'm sure whatever you do will be great, Mrs.
You have a lot to go through.
Oh, no, this is just a fraction of it.
You should see down at City Hall.
I mean, stacks and stacks of old city records and photos.
That's even more of a mess.
Uh, guys.
Can I see you in the kitchen for a second? What is it? Look at this.
It's just an old schoolhouse photo.
No, second from the right.
- Is that-- - Chuck.
Look at the date.
September 1, 1868.
That means Chuck is not from the '60s.
Not the 1960s.
Look at the back.
James Smith, Gary Billings, Charles Peizer.
Charles Peizer.
Charles as in Chuck? And Peizer as in Peizer Park, Peizer Avenue and Peizer Square.
[cell phones buzzing] The OCs found something in Chuck's trailer.
We better go.
I don't understand.
The boy we thought was frozen in 1965 is actually from the 1800s.
But how? I want to say magic, but I know that's not helpful.
If Chuck is from the 1800s, this is bigger than all of us.
All the more reason to figure out what Chuck used to become Jake.
What is that? Spice detector simple syrup.
What does it do? It'll tell us which spice families are in the food that Chuck ate to become Jake.
The read means he used werpoes.
The blue is for livonian.
And the orange? I don't have orange listed here.
So Chuck used some sort of super secret not on the card ingredient.
That's not good.
What if our Kick Him Out Chicken Soup isn't strong enough? Well, they say smell is more powerful than taste.
What if there was a way to get Chuck to breathe in the soup instead of eating it? What would that do? Well, it's like when you have a cold, so you rub vapors to clear your nose.
- You do that? - Well, yeah.
It works better than taking medicine because it's more concentrated, so it enters your system right away.
Impressive, Hannah.
Well, I'm kind of good at science.
And you're neurotic about your health.
You could add werepoes salt and galafrasian oregano to increase the steam on the soup.
- We need more time.
- I'll text Mama P.
She won't be happy.
I am stuffed.
You barely touched the four extra side dishes you ordered.
Sorry, Mama P.
I guess my eyes were bigger than my stomach.
I can take it to go.
There are no doggie bags at Le Grande Falls.
You know, I was thinking.
You work so hard, you deserve a break.
Oh, this is break enough for me.
I love feeding people.
It's my passion.
Why don't you take the weekend off? But the weekend is the busiest time at Mama P's.
I can manage one Saturday without you.
[chuckles] Feels like you're trying to get rid of me.
I'm just trying to be nice.
Work if you want.
No skin off my back.
Should we get the check? We're supposed to re-open the cafe soon.
[cell phone buzzing] Our customers can wait a little longer.
Let's order dessert.
I couldn't eat another bite.
We can't come to Le Grande Falls and not order the soufflé.
It'd be a crime against fine dining.
If you insist.
I do.
I want you to have the full experience.
So Chuck's actually, like, 147 years old? He looks good for his age.
What? He does.
To stay 15 for that long he must have used some powerful magic.
Maybe that's why spells work wonky on him.
Like the Can't Recall Caramel and the Miso Persons Soup.
And the Spill The Beans secret spell.
You're right, girls.
Powerful magic doesn't always interact well with other powerful magic.
So how do we know that this soup is gonna separate him from Chuck? We don't.
It's a leap of faith kind of day.
I think we're ready.
[bell jingles] How was lunch? - Great.
- It was expensive.
But worth it.
Something smells good in here.
Yeah, actually, Jake, I'm glad you're here.
I'm trying out a new soup recipe, and I think it's missing something.
I need your expert nose.
So, Le Grande Falls was good today? Good, yes, but I don't really get the hype.
It sure seemed like you liked it when you ate everything off the menu.
[chuckles] I think I added too much cayenne pepper.
Will you check it out for me? I think you're right.
Too much cayenne.
I better go change for my shift.
Now what? It didn't do anything.
Maybe it wasn't strong enough.
- Morbium.
- What? That's what Chuck used to become Jake.
He needed something really powerful.
Maybe that's what the orange was referring to when we used the spice detector simple syrup.
He does have my morbium seed.
Miss Silvers.
We need your morbium.
- I don't know, Kelly.
- It could be dangerous.
Jake is our friend.
We have to do whatever we can to save him.
I know, but this is our last one.
Are you sure it will work? At the Pluot Festival, you offered us your morbium for our Curse Breaking cake, but my instinct said not to take it.
Chuck used morbium to become Jake, and my gut says this is the only way to save him.
It's worth it.
For Jake.
I agree with Kelly.
- Me, too.
- Me, three.
I trust you, Kelly.
Is my shirt on backward or something? No, we're just really trying to get the soup right.
Will you try again? I adjusted the seasonings.
Did you really think this would work? - What do you mean? - Kick Him Out Chicken Soup? Maybe if I was an unwanted guest at a party.
I thought you were smarter than that.
Uh, I think he knows we know.
I was suspicious when you offered I take the weekend off.
But when you ordered that $17 soufflé, - I knew.
- What a waste.
Come on.
It was delicious.
You're never gonna save your friend.
And you're never gonna stop me from getting what I want.
It doesn't burn anymore.
There's one thing you didn't count on.
Oh, yeah? What's that? You're not the only one with morbium.
[coughing] Gina: Oh, no.
It was too powerful.
Becky: Is everybody okay? - Ida: Girls? - Darbie: I'm okay, I just can't see anything.
- Kelly: I'm here, too.
- Hannah: Me, too.
- Jake: What's going on? - Ida: Jake, is that you? I-- I mean, the real you? Yeah, of course.
Who else would it be? Darbie: You don't want to know.
[coughing] Chuck.
- [sizzling] - Ahh.
You can slow me down.
But it's too late to stop me.
It doesn't look that way from where I'm standing.
Good luck saving your friend.
We just saved Jake.
Not that friend.
