The episode begins in the dining room with Richard trying to unclog the kitchen sink with a toilet plunger and Gumball serving cereal for Darwin and himself. After having a conversation about why lunch is superior to breakfast and dinner, a plastic wand falls out from the cereal box and on to Darwin's bowl of cereal. Gumball grabs it in hopes that it would be able to satisfy his wish of having six eyes but results with no effect. Darwin tries wishing for the same thing on Gumball as well, this time with him waving the wand, but still yielding the same result. They conclude that the magic wand is fake. Richard, homing in on the words "magic wand," rushes over and asks Gumball for it. He first wishes for it to actually work, unlike the magic wishbone that crushed his childhood dreams.
A flashback to Richard's childhood plays, showing him breaking a wishbone with his mother and wishing for the sausages on the dining table to fly into his mouth. After waiting for a while, he nervously asks his mom why his wish is not coming true, to which she reveals that magic is fake. This causes Richard to scream for several years— he screams through major events in his life like his high school photo, one of his dates with Nicole, and his wedding. After Richard explains how his discovery of magic being fake ruined his childhood, Gumball and Darwin made it their duty make his wishes come true to avoid such event from happening a second time.
Richard's first wish is the same one that crushed his dreams— for sausages to fly into his mouth. Gumball and Darwin simply tie a sausage to a fishing pole and reel it towards their father's mouth. He eats it and rejoices, but then he hears a noise coming from the kitchen; the kitchen sink, clogged and nearly overflowing with goop. He groans, thinking of the work that is to come, but then realizes that he still has the magic wand. He wishes for the sink to unclog itself. As Gumball and Darwin hide in the cabinet below the sink, they try to help Richard fulfill his wish without his notice. Not knowing how to fix a sink, they start yanking the pipes in hopes that it would do something. The pipe's connector falls off, causing the cabinet to flood with the green goop that was in the sink. With no other readily available option, Gumball covers the open pipe with his mouth, filling his mouth with the disgusting green liquid and eventually swallowing it all at once, causing Gumball's stomach and body to expand. Darwin pokes Gumball's fat body and Gumball pukes out all of the green liquid onto Darwin's face, which returns back to normal as he does this. Richard bows to the wand, worshipping its supposed magical power and bestows the name of Wanda onto it, which leads to Gumball and Darwin granting some more wishes.
Later, in the backyard, Richard's wishes that it was not so hot, so Gumball and Darwin rip off his clothes. This catches the attention of the Robinsons. Mr. Robinson tells Richard to put some clothes on. Richard apologizes, but thinking he is a wizard, Richard casts several "spells" on the Robinsons.
The first of the barrage of wishes made by Richard is a wish that would make Mr. Robinson look silly. This was satisfied by Gumball and Darwin by leaving Mr. Robinson in a bra and bikini. Richard, disgusted by the sight, wished that the outfit would be removed, leaving Mr. Robinson naked. This result repulses Richard even more, wishing to put the bikini back on. His wish against Mrs. Robinson is to turn her head into a watermelon, fulfilled by the boys by throwing a watermelon off-screen onto the head of Margaret. Richard's ultimatum results in the boys hanging both Robinsons with ropes tied among their torso, to look as if they are flying. After Richard leaves, with the Robinsons finally out of the misery from the antics done by the boys, they are convinced that Richard is really a wizard and they run in a terrified panic.
Richard runs to the front of the house with Wanda, overconfident with his possession of magic. Gumball and Darwin realize that their father has turned evil with power and that his wishes may become worse. They then decide to take Wanda from Richard, while still fulfilling the wishes their father to avoid him from getting depressed. Richard casts a slip-over spell, slow motion spell, reverse spell, love spell, and an inside out spell, much to his horror, forcing himself to cast a "back to normal" spell at Gumball and Darwin. All the wishes are perfectly executed by the boys.
Richard then makes Gumball and Darwin switch faces and butts, and makes them kiss each other, and a variety of other spells much similar to this. Gumball, at his limit, decided to tell his father the truth about the wand. Richard thinks they are making it all up, but when he tries to fly in midair, he then realizes that Gumball and Darwin were doing humiliating things for him, and they all hug. Richard then quickly realizes that Gumball and Darwin told him magic was fake, and he starts screaming again. Meanwhile, Mr. Robinson finds Wanda on his lawn and tries executing its power by wishing that her wife would change her horrible hairdo. He quickly regrets his wish after seeing that the wand is a fake, and as this makes Mrs. Robinson miffed, he says to himself "I wish I hadn't said that."
It is revealed Nicole's maiden name starts with 'G' on the yearbook photo.
This is disproved in "The Choices" as it is revealed that Nicole's maiden name is "Senicourt."
Richard's cape is similar to his Cottontail Cavalier Cape.
In the Japanese version of this episode, during the flashback to where Richard finds out magic is not real, his scream stays high pitched, even when he grows up. It is not until he finds out the wand is fake that his scream is lower pitched.
Nicole wears her wedding dress in Richard's flashback, which is much bigger than when Gumball wore it in "The Dress."
Richard and Nicole's wedding flashback appeared once again in "The Ape," but strangely, Richard was not screaming in that episode, implying that he was exaggerating his side of the story a bit.
This is the second episode where Nicole only appears in a flashback. The first episode was "The Dress."
This is the second episode where Richard screams for a long period of time. The first episode was "The Painting."
This is the third time Richard wears a cape. The first two times were in "The Gi," and "The Club."
The wand Richard uses in the episode is similar to the Fairy Wands from the Nicktoon The Fairly OddParents, except that the stick is pink. There is also a character named Wanda from the same show.
[The episode starts with Richard cleaning the sink and Gumball and Darwin having breakfast]
Gumball: I think lunch is the best, because you already had breakfast.
Darwin: But you still have dinner to look forward to.
[A plastic wand drops from the cereal box]
Gumball: [Gasps] A plastic magic wand.
Gumball and Darwin: Sweeeet!
[Gumball picks up the wand]
Darwin: Make a wish!
Gumball: I wish I had six eyes.
[Darwin checks if Gumball has six eyes]
Darwin: One, two, hmm... Maybe you have to wave it. [Waves wand] I wish Gumball had six eyes.
Gumball: One, two... [Checks if he has six eyes, which fails and he becomes angry] Aww, this magic wand is weak!
Richard: [Gasps] Magic wand!
[Richard runs and falls over]
Richard: Can I have a turn?
Gumball: Sure but it doesn't really-
Richard: Cool! With this, I can make all my wishes come true. [Waves wand] My first wish is that this doesn't turn out to be a big fraud. [angrily] Like that stupid wish bone!
Gumball: What wish bone?
Richard: Well, when I was a boy, about your age...
[Goes to a flashback]
[Richard and Granny Jojo crack a wish bone]
Richard: I wish that sausages would fly into my mouth. [Opens mouth, but nothing happens] Mom, I made a wish on the wishbone but nothing happened.
GrannyJojo: What did you think, that it was gonna come true? Magic isn't real.
Richard: [Gasps] You mean, it's a fraud?
GrannyJojo: Yeah, it's a fraud.
[Richard screams through various scenes of his childhood years, teenage years]
Richard: And I didn't stop screaming for fifteen years.
[Richard screams in the movies, then he eats popcorn]
Richard: [Sadly] I never believed in anything again. But I believe this will be different. Now, I've got some wishing to do! Hehe, hehe, hehe!
[Richard runs off scene]
Gumball: You know what this means, Darwin. We'll have to make sure all of Dad's wishes come true.
Gumball: Because if we don't, he'll never be able to believe in anything again. And he might go crazy and start screaming. We'll have to make sure he thinks that wand is real!
Making the Wand "Real"
[Scene changes to the living room where Richard is sitting on the couch and Gumball and Darwin are hiding behind the couch]
Richard: Uh... Ooh, I wish for sausages to fly into my mouth.
[Closes his eyes and opens his mouth. Gumball and Darwin look at each other, then hide behind the couch again. A sausage tied to a string flies into Richard's mouth]
Richard: [Excited] I think you and me are gonna be friends.
[Richard hears sounds]
[He notices the sound came from the sink's leaky faucet. Richard groans, but realizes he can "use" the wand.]
Richard: I wish the sink was fixed!
Gumball: Well, how do you fix a sink?
Darwin: I don't know.
[Gumball and Darwin pull on the sink's drainage pipes and dirty water spills. Gumball and Darwin scream]
Darwin: Quick, Mr. Dad's gonna find out the wand's not real!
[Gumball drinks all the dirty water]
[Richard is pleased by this. Meanwhile, Darwin pokes Gumball, letting all of the dirty water get out. Darwin is covered in dirty water]
Richard: You are truly powerful! I shall name you Wanda the Wonderful Wand of Wonder!
Gumball: Quick! I think Dad is about to make another wish.
[Scene transitions to the front yard]
Richard: [Waving wand] I wish it was raining pancakes!
[Pancakes start falling from the house. Richard walks in circles happily. Meanwhile, Darwin is picking up pancakes for Gumball to throw from the attic]
Richard: I wish... [Waving wand] I wish it was Christmas every day!
[A bag falls from the chimney, containing Gumball in it. Darwin falls onto the bag while wearing a Santa costume. Gumball comes out of the bag]
Darwin: Ho ho ho!
Gumball and Darwin: Merry Christmas everyone!
[Darwin and Gumball skip away while Richard laughs and receives a present]
Richard: [Waving the wand] I wish... [Gloomy] I wish I was taller.
[Gumball and Darwin are sawing off the chairs and the tables. Richard is skipping, and is amused that he "became taller"]
Richard: Now I'm a giant!
[Richard is sitting on the couch, waving the wand]
Richard: I wish... I wish I had... A monster truck.
[A monster truck drives in]
Richard: Yeah, a monster truck T-Shirt!
[Darwin pats the monster truck, and Gumball drives in reverse. A T-Shirt is thrown from off-screen to Richard. He waves the wand once more]
Richard: I wish... I wish I could be invisible!
Gumball: [Covers mouth and talks quietly] Come on Darwin, just do what I do. [Pretends he can't see Richard] Where's Dad? I wonder where he's gone. [Pointing] Look, he left his wand floating in mid-air.
Darwin: He's here.
Gumball: Come on, Darwin. Let's go and find him.
Darwin: But he's here!
Gumball: [Grabs Darwin and takes him off-screen] Darwin!
In the Backyard
Richard: I wish, I wish it wasn't so hot.
[Gumball and Darwin pull off Richard's clothes. He becomes relaxed]
Gaylord: [Groans] Not again. [Covers Margaret's eyes] Mr. Watterson! Would you kindly refrain from offending my wife's eyeballs with your public display of vulgarity?
Richard: Oh. Sorry, Mr. Robinson. [Suddenly realizes he has the wand] Hey, wait a second. You picked the wrong day to mess with the bunny warlock!
Gaylord: Sorry, what?
Richard: If it's a fight you want, it's a fight you've got! But I think I should warn you, I have supernatural powers!
Gaylord: The only thing supernatural about you is your ignorance.
[He and Margaret laugh]
Richard: I wouldn't be laughing if I was facing the mighty bunny warlock!
Gaylord: The only thing mighty about you is your ignorance.
[He and Margaret laugh]
Gaylord: I used the same joke again.
Richard: Perhaps you haven't noticed, my magic wand, and, my cape!
Gaylord: You don't have a cape.
Richard: Mm? I wish for a cape!
[Gumball and Darwin took the dining table cloth, and quickly put it on Richard, like a cape]
Gaylord: You look ridiculous.
Richard: You leave me no choice, sir! [Waves wand] I wish... I wish...
Gumball: [To Darwin] Here we go!
Richard: I wish you looked ridiculous!
[Gumball and Darwin move around Gaylord like a cyclone so he cannot see them, and change his clothes in a blur, to a bikini]
Richard: Aah! Horrible! Take it off, take it off!
[Gumball and Darwin, once again, move in a blur and take off Mr. Robinson's bikini, leaving him naked]
Gaylord: Cover your eyes, woman!
[Margaret does so]
Richard: Ah! No! Put it back on! Put it back on!
[Gumball and Darwin move in a blur and put the bikini back on Mr. Robinson]
Richard: And I wish your wife's head was a melon!
[Gumball and Darwin almost instantly throw a watermelon on Margaret's head, causing her to muffle, her head stuck inside the watermelon]
Richard: Now I wish you would fly away out of my sight!
Gaylord and Margaret: Aah!
[Gumball and Darwin tie ropes around each Robinson's leg and hoist them up]
Richard: You dare to doubt the all-powerful bunny warlock!
Gumball: [Still pulling the rope with Darwin] I can't hold it any longer!
Richard: Now, begone!
[Gumball and Darwin drop Mr. and Mrs. Robinson]
[Richard skips away happily]
Gaylord: He really is a wizard! Run, Margaret, run! [Screams and runs away with Margaret]
[Richard skips while he laughs]
Darwin: Mr. Dad's turning evil!
Gumball: Maybe it's time we told him the truth.
Darwin: But if we tell him the truth, he's gonna get upset, like when he was a boy.
Gumball: Ahh, you're right. [Thinks for a second] I know! We're gonna have to take the wand back!
Getting the Wand
[In the front yard]
Richard: [Laughing] Is there nothing you can't do, Wanda? I think I finally understand your true power! I wish, I wish, I wi--
Gumball: This has gone on long enough!
Darwin: [Agrees with Gumball] Hmph!
Richard: What are you doing here?
Gumball: That wand - It has made you evil! We're taking it back!
Darwin: [Agrees with Gumball] Hmph!
Richard: You think you mere mortals have the power to challenge me? Come! Take the wand - If you dare!
[Gumball and Darwin rushes toward Richard]
Richard: Slip-over spell!
Gumball: We've got to do it! It'll break his heart if he finds out!
[Gumball and Darwin slips and falls into the mud intentionally. Richard laughs]
Gumball: Can't you see what you've become?
Richard: I can see perfectly clearly! I have become a master wizard!
[Richard screams to the neighborhood. Pantsbully merely gives half a glance, then walks away]
