It is not just a bad idea to return a password through an API; a properly designed application wouldn't even be able to offer such an API call because it would store password hashes instead of actual passwords.

And don't forget to salt them too! Lots of people always seem to forget the salt.

I only forget the salt when cooking, but when cooking, you can usually add the salt later with no negative impact to food safety and security.
