Memorable Quotes[]

  • Wheezie: Oh! I just love kites! They're so... "wind-erful!"
  • Emmy: [they hear Quetzal coughing. He’s apparently looking under the weather as he’s got an ice pack over his head and is wrapped in a blanket.] Quetzal?
  • Quetzal: [coughs] Don’t come too close, niños.…
  • Cassie: [concerned] What’s wrong, Quetzal?
  • Quetzal: I have a co.…co.….AHT-CHOO!!!!!!
  • Max: WHOA!!!
  • Emmy: That’s a BAD cold!
  • Zak: A cold?! That means germs.…!! And I’ll get sick and I’ll have a temperature! And my Mom will make me stay in bed and take…[groans] YUCKY MEDICINE!!! [he puts on a cloth over his nose and mouth like a doctor’s mask]
  • Wheezie: OH, BROTHER!!! [Ord simply shakes his head in agreement, as he too had his share of Zak’s constant worrying for as long as he can remember]
  • Emmy: When I have a cold, my mom makes me sopa de pollo.
  • Quetzal: Sí. Chicken soup. [Takes a sip of chicken soup from a cup.] My mother too. [coughs and sniffles] Ugh. I’m sorry, niños…but I’m just not feeling well enough to help you make a kite today.

  • When Cassie tells the others to look at her kite (cut-out), the green lines briefly turn red-orange.

Notes and Trivia[]

  • Moral: It's important to plan.
  • This is the first time where everyone gets the exact same supplies when trying to plan something. The second time would be in "The Big Cake Mix-Up."
  • When the gang starts planning a kite, Max calls the blue crayon, but he gets a red one. It is Emmy who has the blue one. It is strange because red is Emmy's favorite color.
  • At one point, Ord carries both children, but he doesn't carry them on his back as usual. Instead, he carries Emmy on his right arm and Max on his left.
