Dialogue[]

  • [Emmy comes into the playroom.]
  • Emmy: Max?
  • [Suddenly, a ‘spider’ comes down from the ceiling and makes her scream.]
  • Max: [laughing] Scared ya! Scared ya!
  • Emmy: Did not! Your rubber bugs couldn’t scare anyone!
  • Max: Cool! Bugs!
  • Ord: They’re butterflies, not bugs. Quetzal has the best butterfly collection in all of Dragon Land. Right Quetzal?
  • Quetzal: Well I……
  • Ord: They like to live on his flowers so much, he doesn’t even have to keep them in a cage. Right Quetzal?
  • Quetzal: [chuckles] That is right..……
  • Ord: He’s got every kind of butterfly there is! Right Quetzal?
  • [Finally, Zak covers Ord’s mouth with his hand to shut him up.]
  • Ord: I don’t want to look for a flutterby!
  • Emmy: But I thought you liked butterflies, Ord.
  • Ord: I do. But butterflies like to be with other bugs, and I don’t.
  • Max: Come on, Ord. Bugs aren’t scary, they’re cool!
  • Wheezie: Hey! Look! It’s—
  • Zak: Just a firefly.
  • [The firefly blows a raspberry at him and flies away]
  • Ord: [scared] Firefly? Where?
  • Emmy: What’s that?
  • Cassie: A glow worm.
  • Ord: [disgusted] Eeeewwwww! Glow worms are creepy and slimy.
  • Max: [quietly] And the brave bug tracker moves through the dangerous jungle searching for the frightening fanged Flutterby. [Normal volume] Hey! I see something!
  • [Max finds a bug on a leaf, but it turns out to be a Stinky-dink, which then sprays him in the face.]
  • Max: Yuck! It’s just a stinky bug!
  • Zak: [quietly] Oh, shhhh! Quiet. Don’t move. It’s a……
  • Wheezie: [loudly] FLUTTERBY!!!!!
  • Wheezie: I just love chasing butterflies. They’re so buttery. They keep slipping through my fingers. [Laughs]
  • Zak: Ugh! Get this off of me!
  • Max: I got it! I got it! Emmy: I don’t see anything.
  • Zak: You sure you got it ?
  • Max: Yeah. It’s right here. In my bottle. See?
  • [Max takes the lid off the jar and the flutterby escapes]
  • Ord: Oh no!
  • Zak: You let it go!
  • Cassie: Quick!
  • Wheezie: Get it back!
  • Emmy: Yeah!
  • Ord: [relieved] Great. No more bug hunting. [Suddenly excited] Oh! I know! Let’s have a snack!
  • [Ord looks into his pouch. Meanwhile, Max pulls his rubber spider out of his pocket and gets a sneaky idea. While Ord eats, Max places the fake spider on his leg.]
  • Max: Ord! There’s a big bug on you!
  • [Ord spits out his food and looks down]
  • Ord: [screams] Get it away! Get it away!
  • Max: [tauntingly] It’s just a rubber spider, silly!
  • [Ord feels hurt and leaves.]
  • Max: Where’s he going?
  • Cassie: I think you hurt his feelings, Max.
  • Max: But it was just a joke.
  • Wheezie: Ord thought it was a real spider.
  • Zak: And you know how scared of bugs he is.
  • Max: But he’s so much bigger than me and I’m not a-scared of bugs.
  • Cassie: It doesn’t matter how big you are, Max. Everyone’s scared of something.
  • Max: Not me.
  • Emmy: Oh? How about snakes?
  • Max: Uh…..that’s different! Snakes are scary!
  • Ord: I thought you were my friend.
  • Max: I am. I didn’t know you’d be that afraid of my rubber spider.
  • Ord: I wasn’t.
  • Max: Then how come you ran away?
  • Ord: Because I didn’t know it was a rubber spider, and I thought it was real. I’m not afraid of rubber spiders, but I am afraid of real spiders, and lots of other bugs too, because they’re so icky-looking. I’m afraid they might bite me, and it’ll hurt, and that’s why I’m afraid of them.
  • Max: But I’m not afraid of bugs, and I’m littler than you. Why are you afraid?
  • Ord: I don’t know. I just am.
  • Max: Well…….I’m sorry.
  • Ord: That’s okay.
  • Max: AAAAAAHHHH!!!! A snake! Get it away from me!
  • Ord: Shoo! Shoo! Go away, snake!
  • [The snake doesn’t budge]
  • Ord: He won’t go away. And he’s blocking the only way out of the cave.
  • [The snake slithers closer to them]
  • Max: It’s getting closer!
  • Ord: This way, Max.
  • Max: I guess I’m as a-scared of snakes as you are of bugs.
  • Ord: I know, you tell me if you see any bugs and I’ll tell you if I see any snakes.
  • Max: Deal.
  • Max: Phew! It’s not a snake or a bug. It’s just a flutterby. [Suddenly realizing] The flutterby?!
  • Emmy: Quetzal sure was happy to see that Flutterby.
  • Max: But Ord wasn’t happy to see my bug. I’m getting rid of you right now, Mr. Spider.
  • [Max tosses the rubber spider in the wastebasket.]
  • Max: He won’t be scaring anybody again.
  • [Max takes the wastebasket and places it outside the playroom door. He then closes the door and dusts off his hands.]
  • Emmy and Max's Mom: [from behind the door] AAAAHHH!!!! Who put this scary bug in the wastebasket?
  • Max: Uh, sorry, Mom!
  • [Max just shrugs and the two siblings laugh.]
