Lizard Scales and Wrestling Tales (also known as Are You My Mother?) is the fifth episode of Season 3 of JESSIE. It aired on November 15, 2013. This episode was seen by 2.9 million people.



Luke and The Mauler defeating Jessie.

When Luke asks Christina about his birth parents, he finds out that his birth mother is a wrestler. Emma successfully helps Luke find this mysterious wrestler, making him slightly emotional afterwards once Luke finds out that his biggest hope was a complete lie. He silently walks away, emotionless and heart-broken after Jessie confronts him with this terrible truth. However, Luke is still concerned about why Christina won't tell him about his past. Christina then explains that she hid this from him because she was afraid of losing his trust and compassion for having such a great mother. Luke replies, saying that Christina is already doing an awesome job mothering him, as they share a wonderful embrace. Meanwhile, Ravi plans to run for club president of Walden Academy Middle School's Reptile Club, and he is forced to choose Zuri as his campaign manager (as a permanent replacement for Bertram). However, the sibling duo is surprised that Ravi has an opponent running for the same position. Ravi decides that he'll only be co-president along with his new friend. In the end, Luke narrates his thoroughly yet well-written report about the true meaning of a family.

Guest Cast


  • The original title was, "Are You My Mother?", a reference to a P.D Eastman book.
  • Haley Tju, who played Young London in The Suite Life On Deck, guest starred in this episode.
  • Error: We can understand when Debby Ryan's stunt is used at the fighting scene because the stunt's hair is red and Jessie's hair is brown in this episode.
  • Deven MacNair, who played The Mauler, is a Stunt Coordinator but also professional wrestler 'Fire'. She said that some of the cast wanted to learn how to take falls and do some wrestling moves during rehearsals.
