Gwen Cromwell Piper: With power comes responsibility.
Marnie Piper: You stole that from Spider-Man.

Ethan Dalloway: What you did, giving up that power...
Marnie Piper: You probably think it was stupid.
Ethan Dalloway: Stupid? I think it is amazing. Power isn't important to me.
Marnie Piper: What kind of warlock doesn't like power?
Ethan Dalloway: The mortal kind. When my dad tried to steal your family's magic, the ouncil took his powers and i renounced mine. I can't do magic, I can't fly on a broom or any other cleaning instrument. Those flowers i gave you, that was just a trick I learned from some book. I'm a mortal now, Marnie.

Ethan Dalloway: Hey.
Marnie Piper: Hey.
Aneesa: You know, I'd really hoped you two had moved past monosyllables.

Marnie Piper: Mom! I need you!
Gwen Cromwell Piper: [appears] I thought you'd never call.
Marnie Piper: I really messed up.
Gwen Cromwell Piper: Well, we mess up sometimes. That's how you learn. Just this wek I blew a big sale by talking to a birdbath.

Gwen Cromwell Piper: No one's seen the Sinister girls or Dylan.
Marnie Piper: Have you checked the pound?

Ethan Dalloway: And what? Make him do more math? He loves math!

Splendora Cromwell: You must be of my family. I put an enchantment of protection on this room and everything that is in it. Only a Cromwell would be allowed inside.
Marnie Piper: I am a Cromwell.
Splendora Cromwell: Indeed? How is it we have never met?
Marnie Piper: I'm from the future.
Splendora Cromwell: Oh, indeed? That would explain the clothes.
Marnie Piper: Well, we can't all have a royal dresser!

Splendora Cromwell: Do you speak of this?
[grasps amulet]
Marnie Piper: That's the Gift?
Splendora Cromwell: This amulet was handed down to me by my mother, and her mother before her, and so back to the Beginning Time. The Cromwell who wears this 'tis indeed gifted with a very special old power, power I would not wish upon anyone.

Splendora Cromwell: Do you understand what this great power is?
Marnie Piper: No, not exactly.
Splendora Cromwell: Mark this- in this amulet is the power of absolute control. With it, I can will anyone to do anything. I can control hearts and minds.

Marnie Piper: Was your father Merlin?
Splendora: No, Marvin. Merlin's cousin.

Marnie Piper: Okay, I totally understand. But, um, before you do that could I just borrow it real quick?
Splendora: No!
Marnie Piper: Why not?
Splendora: Because!
Marnie Piper: Man, you're selfish!

Marnie Piper: We need to find Dylan.
Ethan Dalloway: I already did.

Marnie Piper: Dylan! Where'd you find him?
Silas Sinister: We had help.
Ethan Dalloway: Marnie, I'm sorry.
Marnie Piper: You're working with them?
Ethan Dalloway: No!
Silas Sinister: Oh, yes he was! He just didn't know it. Ethan found your brother, and we found Ethan.

Marnie Piper: I can't believe I'm really going to Witch University. I wonder how I'll be transported there. Maybe they'll send a train of black carriages driven by headless horsemen. Or, ooh, maybe they'll send a flotilla of Spanish galleons to carry us across a misty lake.
[walks through portal]
Dylan Piper: Or maybe they'll just send Benny.

Marnie Piper: I'm cleaning high school out of my closet. Well, actually, it's cleaning itself out. I'm just helping it make decisions.

Marnie Piper: Please, tell me you're not crushed on that.
Dylan Piper: Into a fine powder.

Marnie Piper: Man this is the perfect time to go to Witch University!

Marnie Piper: My resident advisor's a genie?
Aneesa: The first to be accepted to Witch University. My parents are very proud.

Marnie Piper: I can't believe my mother sent my brother to baby-sit me.

Marnie Piper: I've got History of the World, Magic and Mortal, um, Magic Themes Using Classic Literature. You know, pretty normal college classes.

Marnie Piper: So, what's up this "No Magic" rule?
Ethan Dalloway: Uh, that's new. Students used to be required to use their magic in classes.
Aneesa: But that was when Witch University was for witches only, no monsters, or mummies, or genies allowed.
Marnie Piper: When did it change?
Aneesa: Last year.
Marnie Piper: Who's the dork that did that?
Ethan Dalloway, Aneesa: You are.
Marnie Piper: Me?
Ethan Dalloway: When you opened the portal between the worlds permanently a lot of kids from Halloweentown went to college in the Mortal World.
Marnie Piper: Why would they do that?
Ethan Dalloway: Why would anyone want to go off to college? Get away from Mom and Dad. Far away from them.
Marnie Piper: A world away.
Aneesa: Witch University needed more students, so they opened enrollment to non-witches. That's how I got in, because of you!
Marnie Piper: Wow, I mean, that's great. But why no magic?
Ethan Dalloway: To level the academic playing field.
Aneesa: It wouldn't be fair if witches could use magic to do coursework and the rest of us had to do it the old-fashioned way.

Marnie Piper: Befuddled.
Aneesa: Discombobulated.
Dylan Piper: I vote for flummoxed.
Marnie Piper: Flummoxed it is. Prof. Periwinkle is most definitely flummoxed.
Dylan Piper: She's a dead ringer for Grandma.

Dr. Lwaxana Goodwyn: When this school was first established, and enchantment was placed on the campus. All spells cast at Witch University become permanent at midnight on Halloween.
Marnie Piper: You mean 'permanent, permanent'?
Dr. Lwaxana Goodwyn: Indeed. And for many years it was a fine deterrent. Until we had a small mishap.
Marnie Piper: How small?
Dr. Lwaxana Goodwyn: A simple, magical housecleaning lesson went horribly wrong. Half the freshman class had to be sent home as teacups.

Marnie Piper: The fossil himself.
[uneasy silence]
Marnie Piper: He's right behind me, isn't he?

Dr. Grogg: How do I open it?
Marnie Piper: Use a key?
Dr. Grogg: Where is it?
Marnie Piper: Don't look at me!

Marnie Piper: Am I seeing what I think I'm seeing?
Ethan Dalloway: Yes, Marnie. You've spotted the elusive guy doing his own laundry.
Marnie Piper: A rare creature, indeed.

Ethan Dalloway: I have no idea what you just said, but, uh, you looked really cute saying it.
Marnie Piper: Why don't you just use your magic?
Ethan Dalloway: What magic would that be?
Marnie Piper: You know.
Ethan Dalloway: We're not talking about laundry anymore, are we?

Marnie Piper: Raincheck on the coffee?
Ethan Dalloway: And the magic.

Marnie Piper: Hey, you think maybe you could do that smokey-smokey thing and just take a peek inside?
Aneesa: That only works with my own lamp.

Luke: Maybe we could go out for an ice cream. I know my way around town. I'm kinda like the big cheese here.
Marnie Cromwell: I was hungry, but then I smelled something stinky... it must have been the Big Cheese!

Gwen Cromwell Piper: I'm just trying to protect you.
Marnie Cromwell: Yeah, you're protecting us from being anything but a bunch of vegetables.
[sits down]
Marnie Cromwell: Hey look! I'm a potato, are you happy now? Maybe I'll put down some roots in the carpet.
Marnie Cromwell: Oh no Marie, it's too dangerous! There're things about vegetables that YOU don't understand.

Gwen Cromwell Piper: You can't go out tonight.
Marnie Cromwell: Why?
Gwen Cromwell Piper: I have my reasons and I will explain them to you when you're taller.
Marnie Cromwell: Mom, you've been saying that for like my whole life. It's just one night, what's the big deal?

Marnie Cromwell: How are we supposed to grow up if we're not allowed to go into the world, try new things and take some risks?

Marnie Cromwell: [to Gwen] My poor little sister should be out trick-or-treating, but you've kept her from a normal childhood and now she's a wall ornament.

Gwen Cromwell Piper: You are not a witch.
Marnie Cromwell: Oh, yes, I am, no thanks to you. You were going to let my powers go away forever.

Marnie Cromwell: [sorting through the presents Aggie brought them] Hieroglyphics!
Gwen Cromwell Piper: [to Aggie] Mother!

Dylan Cromwell: Shhh! What're you doing? You know talking about Dad always bugs Mom out.
