"Smarty Pants" is the first episode of the second season of Wizards of Waverly Place.
Alex is eager to help prepare for the Quiz Bowl if it will get the attention of the new guy, Dean. Harper and Justin are planned to compete in the Quiz Bowl on opposing teams. But when Alex causes an accident that leaves one of Harper's teammates unable to compete, she is forced to participate instead. To give the team an edge in the Quiz Bowl Competition, she wears a pair of magical trousers known as "Smarty Pants", which give the wearer superior knowledge on anything and everything. However, her superior knowledge might ruin her friendship with Harper, who was counting on the Quiz Bowl to give her a new reputation as class genius. To stop herself from answering all of the questions, Alex takes off the pants, only to learn that there were some unpleasant side effects.
