"Wizards of Waverly Place: Who Will Be the Family Wizard? (#4.27)" (2012)
Jerry Russo: How often does Uncle Kelbo come around? A couple times a year. Aunt Megan - never. You know why? Because we let the competition come between us. Promise you'll stick together no matter who becomes the family wizard.
Justin Russo: I promise, dad.
Alex Russo: I promise.
Max Russo: I promise.
Jerry Russo: Not to me - to yourselves.

Theresa Russo: He's studied the hardest. He's stuck by the rules. My son hasn't been a stick-in-the-mud all these years for nothing.
Jerry Russo: I'm rooting for Alex. I mean she's defeated the dark angels, save the world from an asteroid, plus Justin can *easily* get a job if he doesn't win - we'd be stuck with her forever.

Max Russo: I can't believe this. I-I-I prepared myself - knowing that the next time I walked through that portal, one of us would be the family wizard - not none of us would be the family wizard.
Justin Russo: And not just us - any Russo from now on. Alex just cut down our family tree and *burned* it!
Alex Russo: I told you I though we would come back in time.
Theresa Russo: Come on, Justin. Now's not the time to point fingers.
Jerry Russo: Remember you promised each other not to let the competition come between you.
Justin Russo: There is no competition. So the deal's off - because of *her*.

Jerry Russo: I'm selling the business
Justin Russo: What? Why?
Jerry Russo: Well, I always loved the Substation because it was a family business. But we're not much of a family anymore.
[Jerry leaves]
Alex Russo: Well, dad, aren't you rushing into this? Wha - dad?
Max Russo: Mom, what's going to happen?
Theresa Russo: I don't know. But your father is... heartbroken.

Alex Russo: Max, will you forgive me too?
Max Russo: Alex, of course I forgive you. Any sister of Justin's is a sister of mine... None of you can say that didn't make sense.
Jerry Russo: Now *this* is my family.
Harper Finkle: Yeah, a bunch of people selling barely edible food to an unsuspecting public. Ah, those are the Russos I know.

Jerry Russo: That's my girl, the Russo family wizard.
Theresa Russo: We were this close to becoming a normal family.


"Wizards of Waverly Place: Report Card (#1.17)" (2008)

Justin Russo: ...I panicked!

Justin Russo: I don't know why you guys even bother taking the tests. We all know that I'm the one that's gonna win the family wizard contest and keep my powers.
Jerry Russo: That's not for a long while, Justin.
Alex Russo: And what if they change the rules so only girls keep their powers? Oh, wait, you still might win.
Justin Russo: Oh, Alex, you're so transparent. You know that I'm better than you at magic, so you have to lash out and make fun of me. And you don't take any of this magic seriously.
Alex Russo: I can't take *you* seriously. You use big words like "transparent". What are you, British?
[Professor Crumbs suddenly appears]
Professor Crumb: No, but I am.

Jerry Russo: What are you doing?
Alex Russo: ...two guinea pigs should fill their slot.
[instantly, Jerry and Theresa are turned into guinea pigs. Alex is shocked]
Alex Russo: What did I just do? I panicked! I needed to buy myself more time.
Report Card: To do what?
Alex Russo: To panic!

Jerry Russo: [to Alex and Justin] It looks like you're both winners.
Theresa Russo: Jerry, I don't think you understand; now they have to work together.
Jerry Russo: Oh my gosh, we're all losers!

Jerry Russo: Look, before you guys start working together, I want to make one thing perfectly clear: Do not come to your mother and me with your problems.
Theresa Russo: That's right. It's not that we don't care; it's just that this seems like a regular brother and sister kind of problem, not 'there's a black hole in the Sub Station sucking in the universe' kind of problem.

Theresa Russo: When someone finds my storage box, full of my Christmas sweaters.
Alex Russo: I don't think the black hole got rid of those.
