Just Add Magic (2015) s02e20 Episode Script

Just Add Contagion

1 Previously on "Just Add Magic" Hopefully, together, we can help your grandmother.
Mama P never had any intention of helping Grandma Quinn.
You didn't think of anyone but yourself.
Classic Ida.
I'd be happy to reserve these tables for you if you'd like to make Mama P's your campaign headquarters.
Thanks, Mama P.
If you want my help, we're making a new deal.
Hannah: She's always up to something, isn't she? You make my dad really happy, and that makes me happy.
Kelly: What happened last night with Noelle? Mama P: Noelle? Livonian? Elysian? - Morbium? - Are you speaking English? Mama P doesn't remember magic.
She's been spelled just like RJ.
And we know who did it.
All: Noelle.
[bell jingles.]
Okay, rosemary.
Where are you? [crickets chirping.]
[birds chirping.]
[bell jingles.]
[bell jingles.]
You're gonna show me something in my own kitchen? This might be shocking, so brace yourself.
I'm braced.
What's this? I don't understand.
This is your secret pantry.
You've been doing magic since you were 12 years old.
Cedronian turmeric.
Lapsis pepper.
You're telling me these are magic spices? You had the book for years until your best friend Gina spelled you to be stuck in town.
Gina? Gina Silvers? Yes, and you don't remember the Pluot Festival, or Paris or Chuck? I don't know what kind of prank this is, but it's good.
Especially the pantry.
How did you pull this off? We didn't.
We're not making this up, Mama P.
We promise.
It can't be.
Let me think for a minute.
Uh-- There has to be a logical explanation.
I just needed to catch my breath.
Better get back to work.
What about the magic pantry? What magic pantry? This magic pantry.
What is that? Here we go again.
I don't think she can retain memories of magic.
A secret pantry.
Was this here when I moved into the shop? Noelle won't stop until she gets what she wants.
We can't let that happen.
First things first, we fix Mama P, and then we can deal with Noelle.
Hopefully, we can figure this out in the next two hours.
I'm going clothes shopping with Amy this afternoon.
Isn't that something you usually do with your mom? She's been busy with work, so Amy offered to take me to Factory.
- Factory? Wow.
- I know.
I can't wear these overalls forever.
Hopefully, Amy can help me find some cool clothes.
Yeah, I can't stay, either.
I got Miss Silvers an interview for the music teacher position at Fox Canyon.
I have to help her prep.
She's so talented, how could they not hire her? Because she barks at people and is always scowling.
Don't get me wrong, I love her.
Here's one.
"Extract The Magic Mac 'N Cheese.
" Yes.
What? I love mac 'n cheese.
There's a riddle, but it's smudged.
"A spell hangs heavy like a cloud, "and you wish to be freed from the shroud, "so take one bite to feel the release, "and something, something, something.
" Well, that's helpful.
Maybe this will help us extract whatever curse Mama P's under.
Maybe, but without being able to read the riddle, we don't know the downside.
We don't have much choice.
Don't worry.
We've done this before.
We can figure it out.
The UV dryers are broken.
Didn't you just buy those? Yes.
I can't wait until that crooked sales rep gets here.
It's gonna be ugly.
Ooh, I can't wait to see you in action.
I might even make some popcorn.
You can't let anyone take advantage of you in life.
Especially in business.
Got it.
Mama P, we made a new mac 'n cheese recipe.
- Want to try it? - Sure, why not.
It's not great.
But not bad.
So, can we borrow some lapsis sugar? Lapsa-what now? - [sighs.]
- Never mind.
Guess it didn't work.
- Darby.
- Mom? What are you doing here? My meeting cancelled, and your dad told me you were here, so I thought I'd surprise you and take you shopping.
Oh, um, when you couldn't take me, I made plans with-- Amy.
Hi, Jenny.
How are you? Well.
And yourself? Same.
I didn't realize you already had plans.
- I can go.
- It's my fault.
I told Darby I was busy, but my meeting cancelled.
We could go together.
You want to go shopping the three of us? Together.
It was just a thought.
You know what? Let's do it.
It could be fun.
I'm in, too.
Do you want to drive or should I? I only have a two-seat convertible.
Oh, my mom can drive.
She's got a big mini van.
We're gonna have to pick up Operation Save Mama P after I help Miss Silvers.
I'll walk with you.
I told my mom I'd help put up campaign signs, and I want to get there before all the good yards are taken.
Um, I don't think it works like that.
All of life is competition, Hannah.
It's made up of winners and losers.
I gotta hand it to him.
"Lever Fever.
" It's catchy.
Not as catchy as ours.
What are you doing? You just took that sign down without permission.
What are you, the sign police? We need to get my mom's name out there.
What's going on? This isn't like you.
I just really want to win.
The sign says, "Win With Quinn.
" Yeah, but not like this.
Promise me you won't take down any more signs.
I promise.
Now, I have to get to Miss Silvers'.
I'll catch up with you later.
[bell jingles.]
Excuse me.
I'm here to see Mama P.
She's been expecting you.
Why don't you sit here.
Mama P.
The sales rep is here.
Can I offer you a coffee, maybe a doughnut? On the house for coming all the way out here.
Sure, I'll take a latte and a muffin, if you've got 'em.
Okay, then.
I don't get it.
Is this some kind of tactic? - Tactic? - You're being nice to him.
Oh, this must be a bait and switch.
No, just hospitality.
He's our guest.
Let's go over some questions you might get in your interview.
I don't know, this feels weird.
We do it in debate class all the time.
It helps with the nerves.
So, why do you want to teach at Fox Canyon? I have a leak in my roof and not enough students.
Um, maybe instead of talking about why you need the job, you could talk about why you want the job.
This is hopeless.
I'm terrible at interviews.
Well, focus on the good.
You love helping students learn.
Right? Of course.
Well, say that.
And maybe leave out the part about your leaky roof.
All right.
Try another one.
How do you handle difficult students? Uh-- Yes.
I have a piano student named Crosby, never showed up on time, so the next lesson, I locked the door.
Told him if he wants to take piano lessons, he'll show up on time.
He was never late again.
Um, strict, but technically fair, I guess.
What are you planning on wearing? This.
Why? Don't you like it? It's nice.
It's just a little funeral-y.
I'll go change.
Only if you want to.
[cell phone buzzing.]
Hey, what's up? Something's wrong with Mama P.
She was going to tell this guy off, and now she's being up sold on some new automatic soap dispensers.
Well, that's odd.
It's like she's lost her edge.
Kelly's also not acting like herself today.
She removed a Lever sign out of a yard.
She said she did it so her mom would win.
That doesn't sound like Kelly.
What if instead of extracting the magic spell from Mama P, we actually extracted part of her personality? That would explain why she's so trusting.
I mean, look at her.
She believes everything he says.
And Kelly seems to have gotten Mama P's need to win at all costs.
It's not a great trait to pick up.
What do we do? You keep an eye on Mama P, and don't let her buy anything from that guy.
I need to find Kelly so we can break this spell.
You could get four tops at the mall for these prices.
True, but they're big on quality here, so these should last longer.
I can see that.
Darby, what do you think of this one? - I like it.
- I thought you might.
- It's so you.
- You think? Yeah, I'm not so sure.
Yellow is your color.
Remember when I let you borrow that gold top with the hearts on it? Oh, yeah, I did look cute.
I'll try this on.
What about this one? It's-- It's great.
I'll try it on, too.
That's why our dryers didn't work? Yeah.
But we could replace those pipes for you, no problem.
I'll even give you the friends and family discount.
Did you hear that, Jake? He's gonna give us a deal.
That's it.
I can't sit here and let you take advantage of her.
There's no way we'll buy more defective junk from you.
- Whoa.
- If you don't replace the hand dryers right away, I'll report you to the Better Business Bureau, and I'll give you a negative review online.
I think we should listen to him.
He is, after all, an expert.
An expert at selling us dud equipment.
You have one week to make it right.
Or pay the price.
Fine, I'll replace them.
[bell jingles.]
That was rude.
A wise woman once told me not to ever let anyone take advantage of me.
Especially not in business.
Not today, Lever.
More like loser.
- [camera shutter clicking.]
- [chuckling.]
What a coincidence.
I was just out on one of my centering walks, and the universe, as it always does, has handed me a gift.
That Zen nonsense won't work on me.
You've heard of karma, right? What you put out always comes back to you.
What's it gonna take for you to delete the photo? I want my rosemary back.
I might be able to help with that.
And that's not all.
See, I know about Mama P's pantry.
And I want more.
I'll give you 'til the end of the day, and if not, I may have to check in with my friend down at the Saffron Falls Herald.
Wait until you hear what I found out today.
I went to Red's, the restaurant where Noelle used to be a line cook.
Turns out she was fired.
You'd be amazed what you can find out if you leave a big enough tip.
Wait, you bribed someone? Okay, you are definitely spelled.
That's just simply not true.
You're rolling your eyes, you're being sneaky.
By the way, I love your shirt today, it's so cute.
Not to mention charming.
Thank you.
Now, who does that sound like to you? Someone awesome, that's who.
You could add confidence, another Mama P trait.
We need to break this spell, but I have no idea how to do that since the riddle was smudged.
What's this I hear about you covering up Lever's signs? Noelle told you? That's it.
Deal's off.
Lee down the block told me, and it doesn't matter who told me.
What were you thinking? And why didn't I think of it? Wait, did I really tamper with Lever's signs? You finally understand what it truly means to be a politician's daughter.
Quinn, are you okay? Covering his signs? Genius.
So you're not mad? [scoffs.]
Not at all.
In fact, I feel confident for the first time in a while.
I think I can actually win this election.
Mom, could you excuse us for a minute.
Did you see that? The spell passed from me to Mom.
What exactly is this spell? Well, we tried to extract the magic, but instead we extracted the "magic" of Mama P.
You mean, we took out what makes Mama P Mama P? Yes, and based on your mom's sudden change of heart, it passes by touch.
Mama P touched me on the shoulder after she insulted the mac 'n cheese.
We need to get it back before your mom does something drastic.
I think I'll wear this to the debate.
Mom, can I have a hug? What's your angle? Why do I need an angle to hug my mom? Okay, I don't know what just got into me, but you're in big trouble, Kelly.
You're so right, Mom.
I guess I just let the excitement of the campaign overtake me.
I'm sorry.
I thought you understood that we are under a microscope.
You can't do things like that.
Now, go and take down those signs.
Of course.
We need to un-spell you now.
Or we could infiltrate Lever's headquarters under the guise of campaign volunteers, then we can sneak into the records room and we-- Hey! Sorry, but you can't be trusted to take this back to Mama P's.
And it turns out, neither can I.
[door opens, closes.]
I love it.
Yes, it's very nice.
Oh, that's great.
It's definitely unique? Simple, at least.
Can I have it? Sorry.
It's a fortune.
Here, let me buy it for Darby.
Wow, really? You don't have to do that.
It's very expensive.
And she'll get tired of it in ten minutes.
I know, but it's my pleasure.
- Really.
- Thanks, Amy.
It's very thoughtful of you.
Ah, there you are.
I can't let you do this.
Don't tell the Crosby anecdote.
It makes you look too mean.
And definitely don't mention that you couldn't play in public.
Try explaining that.
And nobody wants to hear about your leaky roof.
I'm already nervous and this little pop in didn't help.
All you have to do is be charming, confident, and passionate.
I can't be any of those things.
No, you can't.
But Mama P can.
What's she got to do with this? Man: Miss Silvers? Come on in.
So, what made you want to make the transition from teaching students one-on-one to the classroom? Great question.
I played Carnegie Hall, but it's nothing compared to watching a student be inspired by a piece of music.
It's what gets me up in the morning.
I can make a bigger difference at this school, and reach more students.
I'm sorry, I can't go another minute without saying what a beautiful family you have.
Thank you.
They're my world.
That's how I feel about my students.
I think of them as family.
And we all want the best for our family, right? So true.
I have one more question.
How soon can you start? - You got it? - I did.
And negotiated a higher salary.
That's amazing.
Congrats, Miss Silvers.
I knew you could do it.
Oh, you did, did you? Yeah.
You just needed the confidence.
Is that what spell I'm under? Confidence cookies? Smooth Talker Tapenade? We cooked an extract the magic spell to cure Mama P, but we accidentally extracted her personality.
And also, it's contagious.
And I gave it to you.
Well done.
I could have told you extracting magic would result in contagion.
Don't you think over the years we tried every kind of spell to break our curses? I guess we didn't think of that.
But extracting the magic shouldn't have resulted in extracting her personality.
Oh, the forget magic spell must be truly powerful to have caused this.
But how do we break the contagion? The riddle was smudged.
The only way to break the spell is to bring it back to patient zero Mama P.
I love this one.
Yeah, I agree with your mom.
It's a little too - Grown up.
- Yeah.
But Piper has these exact boots, and he jacket will keep me warm in the theater.
So will a Rockbury sweatshirt.
Nice try, Darby.
I remember that one.
My friend has these boots.
I used it on my mom all the time.
Do you remember the "If I don't get these Doc Martens, "Ill be the only girl in the whole school without them.
" Yes.
So, does that mean I can get the outfit or-- No, sweetie.
Listen to your mom, Darbs.
Don't be in a hurry to grow up.
Still want the boots.
You know, I should go.
Why? This is your thing with Darby.
I shouldn't be here.
I won't lie.
It's been a little awkward.
- So awkward.
- [laughs.]
But you're in Patrick's life, and that means you're in Darby's life.
I want us to be on good terms.
I want that, too.
Thanks for being so nice to Darby.
She really looks up to you.
It's easy.
You did a great job with her.
She's an amazing kid.
Since I'm so amazing, boots? Still no.
So I marched right up to him, and then I told him he'd better give us new hand dryers, or else.
You really channeled Mama P.
And you weren't even spelled.
I'm exhausted.
I don't know how Mama P - does it all the time.
- Hey, guys.
Please tell me you didn't do anything while you were under the spell.
Someone needed a little charm and confidence, so I made a quick stop.
Mama P's not all bad, Kell.
I will deny it if you ever tell anyone I said this, but you have your moments.
Thank you for your help today.
Thanks, but how did I help? Did I almost buy more junk from that crook of a sales guy? Don't worry, Mama P.
I had your back.
Well, I have to get home.
I have lessons to prepare for my new job.
what do we do now? Mama P still doesn't remember magic.
And I may have told Noelle she could have her rosemary back.
You what? She took pictures of me covering up the signs.
I didn't know what to do.
Also, she somehow knows about the secret spice pantry.
That's a lot of no good.
Look, I'll tell her we're not giving her the spices, even if I have to take responsibility for my actions.
But you fixed the signs.
The photo could still hurt my mom's campaign.
There's Noelle.
Hello, Kelly.
I'm not giving you the spices, so do what you have to do.
What are you talking about? You took photos of me and were going to blackmail me in exchange for the magic spices.
Okay, I'm not sure what kind of game you kids are playing, but I'm busy.
And you know what? I didn't appreciate you running out in the middle of a shift.
Right, I, uh, just decided to stay at Mama P's.
Well, I guess you're not the girl I thought you were.
She didn't remember blackmailing you.
Which means Someone hit Noelle with a forget magic spell.
But that doesn't make sense.
I thought she was the one who attacked RJ and Mama P.
Clearly, we were wrong.
It wasn't her.
If Noelle didn't do it, then we're out of suspects.
