"Wake Up Victor" is the fourth episode of the Disney Channel show That's So Raven and aired on January 17, 2003. It was written by Susan Sherman & Edward C. Evans and directed by Ken Ceizler.


Cory and his friend Miles attempt to hypnotize Chelsea and Raven. Instead, they hypnotize Victor. However, Victor was supposed to appear on a prestigious cooking show with impatient host Kelly Bryant. Can Raven and her family save her dad from utter failure before it's too late?


Cory has invited his new friend, Miles, over to hang out. Miles just moved to San Francisco from Okeechobee, Florida, and tells Cory about his hometown. Raven and Chelsea enter. Cory starts flirting with Chelsea, much to her disgust. Raven then asks who Cory's friend is, and Miles introduces himself. The two boys stare at Raven and Chelsea for a bit, then the girls promptly leave. Miles says that Raven is pretty, and Cory is surprised, but is willing to help Miles hook up with her.

Later, Victor enters the kitchen where Raven and Tanya are. He excitedly tells them that he just got offered to film a segment for Hello, San Francisco! on local chefs. The three of them celebrate by cheering, squealing, and hopping around. Cory and Miles enter, but are initially confused about why they are hopping. When Raven explains, Cory hugs Victor and Miles hugs Raven. This makes Raven uncomfortable, and she pushes him off. Miles then says that Victor must be under a lot of pressure, and hopes that he doesn't mess up while millions of people watch. Victor suddenly gets nervous, and Tanya quickly tells Cory and Miles to leave. Raven and Tanya try to calm Victor down, but he tries to call and cancel. Raven stops him, and pretends to have a vision. She tells Victor that the segment goes perfectly, and that he looked like Denzel Washington with a spatula while on camera. This calms Victor down and he thanks Raven. He leaves to figure out what to cook for the show. Tanya asks Raven if she faked a vision. Raven admits that she had, but only because she wanted Victor's big break to go well. Tanya concedes that Raven helped Victor's confidence, but advises against faking any more visions. Raven then has a real vision: Tanya is telling her that the Hello, San Francisco! segment is turning out to be a disaster.

Meanwhile, Miles has brought Cory a box full of items relating to hypnotism. He tells Cory the way for the two of them to get Chelsea and Raven to love them is through hypnotic suggestion. They watch an instructional tape on how to use their new hypno-pendants to make their targets go into a trance. The instructor adds that not everyone can be hypnotized, but those who can will be under the hypnotizer's power for up to a full day.

The following morning, Eddie and Chelsea have come over for support, but Raven is nervously cleaning. Victor comes downstairs and asks the three of them for their input on a catchphrase. He says "Kapowie!" and the teens vaguely approve of the lame phrase, not wanting Victor to feel nervous. Victor is pleased, then heads off to get ready. Raven tries telling her friends what she saw in her vision, but Eddie tells them he needs to leave, since there is a ball game on that he doesn't want to miss. As he heads out the door, Cory and Miles come in, dressed like they just left a retirement village. Miles says that his grandfather showed them how players dress in Florida, but Eddie mocks them and leaves. The two boys sit with Raven and Chelsea on the couch, and offer to show them their new "man jewelry." They show the girls their hypno-pendants and swing them back and forth. Victor quietly enters the living room from the back and starts staring at the swinging pendants. Cory commands them to sleep when they hear the phrase "San Francisco," and Miles commands them to wake up when they hear "Okeechobee." Cory says "San Francisco", and sends Raven, Chelsea, and Victor into a deep sleep. The boys command the girls to fall in love with them. The girls declare their love for Cory and Miles, and ask for kisses. But when Cory and Miles pucker up, the girls hit them with pillows and mock them before leaving the room.

Cory and Miles wonder what they did wrong with the hypnosis. They start going upstairs to view the instructional tape again, but notice that Victor is asleep while standing. They realize that Victor is in a hypnotic trance. At that moment, the Hello, San Francisco! crew knocks at the door. Cory goes to answer while Miles uses the wake-up phrase on Victor. Victor is confused, but greets the crew and host, Kelly Bryant. Victor admits that he lost track of the time, but will hurry to finish getting ready. He heads upstairs to get dressed in his chef's uniform, and Cory joins him to watch the introduction to his segment. The anchor introducing the segment says "We'll be back with more Hello, San Francisco!" Victor falls into trance again, and flops onto the bed. Cory tries using the wake-up phrase, but can't remember it. Tanya, Raven, and Chelsea come in and try to get Victor's attention, but he doesn't move. Cory explains what happened, and Raven and Chelsea try to recall the wake-up word. Tanya tries shaking Victor awake, but it's no use. She tells Raven that this situation is a disaster, and Raven completes her sentence, having seen it in her vision. Raven admits that she knew something bad would happen, but didn't tell Victor, so he wouldn't be nervous. Tanya tells Cory to call Miles and get the wake-up phrase, then tells Chelsea to stall the TV crew. Raven and Tanya set about getting Victor off of the bed and down the stairs. They get him strapped to an ironing board and put sunglasses on his eyes. After some difficulty, they get Victor downstairs.

They place Victor on a skateboard and roll him into the kitchen, where the TV crew is already starting filming. Tanya and Raven puppet his arms and attempt to make it look like Victor is cooking eggs. When Kelly Bryant asks why he isn't speaking for himself, or making the trout dish they had agreed on, Raven replies that Victor is known as the "Silent Chef," who lets his cooking speak for him. After a few minutes of "Victor" clumsily cracking eggs, Kelly goes to a commercial. She demands to know what is going on, and Tanya explains that Victor has been hypnotized. Kelly half-believes her, and says that if they don't snap Victor out of it, he won't be able to cook in the city again.

Eddie and Cory enter the kitchen with Miles. Eddie has been filled in on what is happening, but says that Miles is refusing to speak until he gets something in return: a kiss from Raven. Raven tells him to close his eyes and pucker up, then holds up the trout from earlier. She presses the fish's lips to Miles', and the boy is happy. He says "Okeechobee" and wakes Victor up. Victor is utterly confused as to why he is strapped to a board, standing on a skateboard, and wearing sunglasses. Raven tells Victor that Cory and Miles hypnotized him. Miles takes this as his cue to leave, and Eddie and Chelsea do the same. Cory then blames the fiasco on Raven, saying that she lied about her vision of the show going well. Victor asks if this is true, and Raven confirms it. Victor suddenly feels very unsure of himself, but Raven reassures him. She tells him that he is a talented chef, and the fact that people will see how passionate he is will make him a success. Kelly asks if Victor is finally ready. He says yes and steps in front of the camera, thanking Kelly for being a good sport about the "joke" his family was playing. Since he is low on time, he offers to make an omelette. He quickly gets comfortable in his element, adding spices to the egg mixture, and talking about how a good omelette can be made with just about anything. He even says "Kapowie," and no one thinks it's lame.

Later, the filming is over, and Kelly is eating the omelette. She loves it, and Victor says he can make something better if given the chance. Kelly offers to feature him each month on Hello, San Francisco! Victor falls asleep again. Raven says "Okeechobee" and Victor awakens, happily accepting. Kelly adds that Victor's food says "San Francisco." He falls asleep again. The rest of the Baxters say "Okeechobee." Victor wakes back up and agrees, happy at how his big debut went.
