Overview

Summary

The Russos hear some unfortunate news that Cab number 804 (the cab where Alex was born) is being retired, and Alex charms it back to life so that the Russos can continue to cherish the memories. Later, the Cab starts talking and Justin finds out that Alex brought the Cab to life. Alex decides to take the Cab's offer to give her free rides to school, but the Cab decides to follow Alex all the time, including school where he almost exposes that he is a magic cab when he talked meaning Alex covered it up saying that it was a project for a charity. No one believed it and some went as far as saying that Alex Russo would never do something like this

Even after Justin takes the key out, the Cab starts flying over Waverly Place and Alex tries to hide the cab by pretending it's a parade balloon. Soon, the secret about the cab is exposed to the Russos when the cab crashes into their wall. When Alex explains her selfless intensions, Theresa tells her that just because something is missed, she shouldn't try to fix it because the memory is what's important. Alex apologizes, and Jerry and Theresa are very forgiving, and Justin is shocked because he thinks Alex should've gotten punished. Meanwhile, Justin finds the room that he was born in. But, his hospital that he has been born in, was converted into a mall. Then he get hooked up with some toys from a store that he calls cool. Also, Max brought a gurney to life when Jerry and Theresa told him to get rid of it, but he loves it.
