Dialogue[]

  • [In the playroom, Emmy and Max are playing ring toss.]
  • Emmy: Hey, watch this. I'm gonna throw it backwards.
  • Max: No way!
  • [Emmy throws her ring backwards over her shoulder; it lands around the post.]
  • Emmy: Bullseye!
  • Max: I can do that!
  • Emmy: Go for it, Max!
  • [He throws his ring backwards; it flies out the window and the kids gasp. They look outside to find the ring stuck on the hinges of the roof. A squirrel comes up to notice it.]
  • Max: Uh-oh, I was close.
  • Emmy: Guess we better wait for Dad to get it down for us.
  • Max: But he won't be home till dinner!
  • Emmy: I know! Let's go to Dragon Land while we wait.
  • [Changes to them holding the magic dragon scale.]
  • Emmy and Max: I wish, I wish, with all my heart, to fly with dragons in a land apart.
  • [The wallpaper dragons spin around them and they disappear; in Dragon Land near the Stickleback Mountains, the dragons are playing leap dragon.]
  • Cassie: One leap dragon! [leaps and flies to the front of the line]
  • Zak and Wheezie: Two leap dragon!
  • [They leap and fly into the air and do a somersault while shouting; they hit the ground hard.]
  • Ord: Three leap dragon!
  • [He leaps and flies into the air while looping; Emmy and Max appear right where Ord is supposed to land.]
  • Emmy: Hi, everybody!
  • Ord: LOOK OUT BELOW!!!!
  • [He falls out of the sky and thuds on his bottom.]
  • Emmy: What are you playing?
  • [Zak and Wheezie stretch themselves before tumbling forward.]
  • Zak: Leap Dragon!
  • Cassie: Wanna play?!
  • Emmy: Definitely!
  • [They all line up.]
  • Ord: Ready?!
  • Max: Ready!
  • [Ord leaps and flies into the air; he lands at the front.]
  • Ord: Your turn, Max!
  • Max: [backing up] Watch out, 'cause here I come!
  • [He runs and jumps to the front of the line laughing, while not leaping over any of them.]
  • Zak: Hey!! You're not doing it right. You're supposed to leap over us!
  • Wheezie: Come on, Zaky, Let's show him!
  • [They back up and leap and fly into the air over them. They land at the front and turn around; suddenly, their tail knocks a rock down the path and it bounces off a cliff, slides down a vine and flies toward a strange arrow post with a golden dragon sign at the top. The rock bumps into the sign, making it face the other way, and it releases magic sparkles which shower all over Dragon Land. The sparkles shower down on the Doodle Fairy, who suddenly starts flying in reverse with no control. As Emmy is up, the sparkles shower down on the gang.]
  • Cassie: Ooh!! Sparkles.
  • Max: Cool!!!
  • [Emmy runs and leaps over Ord; suddenly, she stops in mid-air as she gasps, then unexpectedly flies backwards the other way.]
  • Emmy: WHOAAAAAAA!!!!
  • [She lands in a pile of leaves.]
  • Emmy: Oh, no!!
  • [Ord flies into the air, but he only flies backwards.]
  • Ord: HEY!!!!
  • [He lands on a mushroom next to Emmy.]
  • Emmy: I didn't mean to do that.
  • Ord: Me neither!
  • [Cassie tries to walk; she too only goes backwards.]
  • Zak: You're supposed to leap dragon, like this!
  • [He and Wheezie also fly backwards and scream; they splash into a muddy pond.]
  • Emmy: Just like that, Zak?
  • Ord: What's going on?!
  • Cassie: I don't know. Now everybody seems to be going backwards!
  • Max: Backwards?! [He hops backwards and laughs.]
  • [Zak and Wheezie come out of the mud and run backwards; Wheezie laughs.]
  • Zak: Slow down!!!
  • Wheezie: Why?! It's so much fun!!!
  • [She makes them hop backwards more before laughing and snorting hysterically.]
  • Emmy: Cool!! I can run backwards!
  • Cassie: And I can skip backwards!
  • Ord: And I can ho -- [hops backwards shouting; lands in the river, which is going the wrong way]
  • Emmy: [laughs] Even the water's going the wrong way.
  • [The waterfall is going up instead of down.]
  • Max: Ord is going up the waterfall!
  • [He does just that.]
  • Wheezie: Looooove it! [starts to hop backwards to splash in it]
  • Zak: Wheezie, no!!!
  • [She hops and they land in the water; they are pulled up the waterfall.]
  • Cassie: It does look like fun!
  • Emmy: Definitely!!
  • [They jump in the river backwards and swim up.]
  • Max: I'm swimming up!!!
  • [Ord, Zak and Wheezie pull them out at the top.]
  • Ord: No matter what I do, I keep going the wrong way!
  • Max: Me too!
  • Zak: Doesn’t anyone else think we should figure out why we keep going in the wrong direction?!
  • Cassie: Zak’s right. Things are all mixed up!
  • Max: Yeah. Pretty soon we’ll have to wear pants on our heads and hats on our feet! [laughs]
  • Ord: And we’ll get to eat dessert before meals, right?!
  • Max: Right!
  • Ord: Dessert before breakfast. Dessert before lunch. Oh, dessert before dinner! Dessert before dessert!! This is the best day of my whole life!
  • Zak: The best?! You mean the worst!!
  • Emmy: Mountan coming up!
  • Max: Big tree, dead ahead!!
  • All: WATCH OUT!!!!
  • Emmy: We’re like having eyes in the back of your heads.
  • Max: Mommy says she has those.
  • Emmy: Okay, all we have to do is turn the Backwards Forwards Sign around, and everything will go back to the way it used to be.
  • Max: But what about that sign?
  • Ord: And... what about that sign?
  • Zak: Oh, no!!! There's LOTS of signs! And only one of them is the right one!! What are we going to do?!?! WE'RE DOOOOOOOOOOMED!!!!!!!!
  • Wheezie: Why don't we just turn each sign and see what happens?
  • Ord: Can I turn one?
  • Emmy: We can all turn one!
  • Cassie: Here it goes...
  • [She turns one of the signs; suddenly, she starts floating in mid-air upside down.]
  • Cassie: WHOAAA!!!!
  • [Emmy and Max flip upside down as well.]
  • Emmy and Max: WHOAAA!!!!
  • Emmy: That must be the Upside Down Sign!!!
  • [The other dragons are also upside down.]
  • Wheezie: Loooooove it!!!
  • Zak: I think I'm gonna be sick!
  • [Cassie turns the sign back the other way; everyone flips right side up again and lands.]
  • Cassie: Sorry.
  • [Emmy and Max walk over backwards to another sign.]
  • Emmy: Or maybe it's this one?
  • [Emmy turns it; she and Max float in mid-air over the ground horizontally.]
  • All: WHOAAAAAA!!!!
  • [Cut to Zak and Wheezie also floating in mid-air horizontally.]
  • Wheezie: Really loooooooove it!!!
  • [Emmy turns the sign back the other way; everyone flips vertically again and lands.]
  • [Ord walks over backwards to another sign]
  • Ord: I bet it's this one.
  • [He turns it; suddenly, Zak and Wheezie fly into the air and begin spinning nonstop while shouting; Cassie spins as well.]
  • Cassie: WHOAAAAAA!!!!!
  • [Emmy and Max are also spinning and laughing. Ord is also about to spin like everyone else, but turns the sign back the other way just in time and the spinning stops.]
  • Ord: I don't know what that sign is, but it makes me dizzy!
