"Mom's the Word" is the twenty-eighth episode of the Disney Junior animated series, Sofia the First. It premiered on April 25, 2014, and is the fourth episode of the second season.


It's Mother's Day in the Kingdom of Enchancia and Sofia, with a pink rose in her hand, goes looking for her mom and is looking forward to spending the day with her. However, when she finds her she discovers that James and Amber have already given Miranda roses in the shape of a unicorn. She tells Sofia they're bringing James and Amber along on their Mother's Day picnic to June Berry Island. This disappoints Sofia a little because she was hoping it to be just the two of them, but Miranda reminds her she's not just her mother anymore, she's also Amber and James's mother as well. With both picnic baskets loaded onto the coach the Royal Family get on their way with Baileywick accompanying them. Sofia is still feeling disappointed, and can't bear looking at Amber next to her mother. Just then she spots a witch in the sky who turns the right rear wheel of the coach into a watermelon.


Sofia and Miranda as they use to be.

While everyone inspects the damage, Sofia spots the witch again and decides to go and investigate. She calls and calls until the witch comes up behind her and puts a hex on her gown just before Lucinda the Good Little Witch appears. After undoing the hex on Sofia, she tells her that the other witch is her mother and every Mother's Day they go out hexing people and since she's now a good witch she finds it no fun. However, her mother doesn't know she's a good witch now and doesn't want to ruin her special day. Sofia can understand her feelings and she recalls the times when it was just her and her mom and sometimes wishes it could be just the two of them again. Seeing that Sofia really wants to be alone with her mother, Lucinda comes up with a magical idea that will get the two of them alone.

As soon as the coach is mended, the family gets back on their way and arrive at the Royal River. Sofia, in a rush, gets her mother into the boat just as they start putting on their life jackets. Then unnoticed, the two witches fly over and Lucinda magically summons two giant seahorses that push the boat out into the river without James and Amber. Marla is impressed with her daughter's hex until Lucinda admits it was actually a good spell. Marla tells her that being wicked is more fun than being good and it's part of their legacy of being witches. Lucinda reluctantly understands and just before the two witches fly away she makes the two seahorses pushing Sofia and Miranda's boat disappear. Sofia sees they are close to June Berry Island but Miranda insists that they turn around and go back for Amber and James, feeling worried about those witches on the loose. Amber, James and Baileywick remain back at the dock and decide to go after them. But since they lost their boat they decide to borrow a fishing boat, much to Amber's dismay.

Mom's the word 1

Enjoying the wild ride.

As Miranda and Sofia continue to row back, Marla creates rapids and sends them off on a wild ride. Marla is really enjoying herself but Luncinda isn't. She tries to undo the spell but her mother's hex is too powerful for her to undo. Sofia and Miranda, at first, find this wild ride scary but they soon find it really fun and happily slide through the rapids till they make it out to calm waters. Meanwhile, James, Amber, and Baileywick are slowly rowing after Miranda and Sofia when suddenly the witches appear again and Marla turns their boat into a giant lily pad and Baileywick into a frog, to his and Amber's horror.

Sofia and Miranda make it to June Berry Island. much to Sofia's joy. She hopes they can have their picnic now but Miranda tells her they can't. She can see that Sofia has been trying to get some time alone with her but she needs to learn that she is now Amber and James' mother too and things can't always be the same as they were before. Just then Amber, James and Baileywick show up and the family is reunited. Meanwhile flying in the sky, Marla notices Lucinda is feeling bothered and Lucinda admits she's not having fun. So Marla decides to turn things up a notch by causing June Berry Island to rise out of the water with the Royals still on it. Sofia and her family try to bring the island to the ground by lassoing some rope to a tree on the mainland and pulling hard to bring the island down. However, their attempts fail when Baileywick once again gets the urge to eat a fly. Finally, Lucinda has had enough and confesses to her mother that she is now a good witch and wants to do good spells from now on. Marla is shocked to hear this and, thinking she doesn't understand, Lucinda leaves to go and help Sofia and her family.

Still floating above the water, Sofia admits that the little witch is her friend and she asked her to cast a spell that would get her and her mother alone. Everyone is shocked to hear that Sofia would do such a thing. Miranda asks for an explanation and Sofia admits that she wanted it to be just the two of them like before but she realizes that she was not being a good sister or a good daughter and apologizes for her actions.


The Royals and the Witches having a Mother's Day picnic together.

Just then, Lucinda appears; at first everyone is cautious except Sofia who tells them she is a good witch. Lucinda promises to get them down but again her mother's hex is too powerful for her to undo. Then, her mother shows up and brings them down safely. Marla finally understands Lucinda wasn't really enjoying their day together because she was doing bad spells and she has chosen to be a good witch. So she decided to do a good spell for her “Little Witchlet”. She promises Lucinda that if being a good witch is what she wants to be then she is willing to support her decision. With everybody happy and Baileywick changed back the two families spend the rest of Mother's Day having a picnic together.
