Dialogue[]

  • [The episode starts out in the playroom, where Max and Emmy are getting their shoes on.]
  • Emmy: I can’t wait to get to Dragon Land.
  • Max: Wait for me, Emmy.
  • [Max struggles to put his shoe on, but he doesn’t realize he put the right sneaker on his left foot.]
  • Emmy: Wrong foot, Max
  • Max: Huh? Oh.
  • [Max takes his right shoe off and tries to put on the other one. But once again, it doesn’t fit because he’s trying to put the left sneaker on his right foot.]
  • Emmy: No! Like this.
  • [Emmy takes both Max’s sneakers and places them on the floor. She then hoists him up from behind and places him down so his feet land right into his shoes.]
  • Emmy: There.
  • Max: Thanks.
  • [Max then fastens the straps on his shoes.]
  • Emmy: Come on.
  • [Emmy goes over to get the scale. Once his shoes are completely fastened, Max catches up with Emmy.]
  • Emmy and Max: I wish, I wish, with all my heart, to fly with Dragons, in a land apart. [They teleport to Dragon Land.]
  • Max: Wow.
  • [Ord, Zak, and Wheezie are bouncing on mushrooms.]
  • Max: They're huge!
  • Ord: Max, Emmy, come on!
  • [Max and Emmy join the dragons.]
  • Max: Look at me. I'm a frog. Ribbit, ribbit!
  • Emmy: Where did these giant mushrooms come from?
  • Zak: They popped up overnight.
  • Wheezie: I just love mushrooms. They're so mushy!
  • Cassie: Hi everyone!
  • Max: Come hop with us.
  • Cassie: No thanks. I'm going to play with Poozy.
  • Max: Who's Poozy?
  • Ord: Cassie's pet caterpoozle.
  • Max: Cool.
  • Cassie: She's smart. Wanna see? Lie down Poozy. [Poozy lies down.]
  • Emmy: She's so cute.
  • Max: Can I hold her, Cassie?
  • Cassie: Sure, Max. Poozy loves to be snuggled. [She places Poozy in Max's hand.]
  • Max: [laughing] She tickles.
  • [Poozy crawls on Wheezie who laughs.]
  • Zak: [with a tickled nose] I sure am allergic to fuzzy things. I'll get those little red bumps all over me. Take her Wheezie.
  • Wheezie: [picking up Poozy] You're such a cutie wootie poozy woozy. [She kisses Poozy.]
  • Ord: [giggling] You kissed a caterpoozle.
  • Wheezie: It's no worse than kissing a brother. [She kisses Zak.]
  • Zak: Eeww, sister germs!
  • Cassie: She can do tricks too. Watch. Roll over Poozy. [Poozy rolls over.]
  • Ord: Wow.
  • Cassie: You've got it girl. Time for your lunch Poozy. [She places poozy in her cage and Poozy starts eating.] Mmm, isn't that leaf good?
  • Emmy: Come on Cassie. Race you 'round the mushrooms.
  • Cassie: Don't worry Poozy. I'll be right over there. [She and her friends hop on the mushrooms.]
  • All: [singing] Here we go round the dragon berry bush, the dragon berry bush, the dragon berry bush, here we go round the dragon berry bush so early in the morning! [They all giggle and keep bouncing while Poozy finishes eating, shivers, and knits a cocoon.]
  • Ord: Hey, listen to this. [He and Max do a dance and Max stumbles and everyone laughs.]
  • Cassie: I better check on Poozy. [She goes to Poozy's cage and looks inside.] Oh no! Poozy! She's gone!
  • Emmy: She must be around here somewhere. [They all search for Poozy.]
  • Zak: She's not under here.
  • Max: I think I felt her. [He peeks into the flowers.] It's just a baby dandelion.
  • Ord: [stepping on a flower] Huh? Phew. She's not here.
  • Cassie: [sad] Poozy's gone forever!
  • Wheezie: Don't give up, Cassie.
  • Emmy: Yeah, we haven't looked everywhere yet.
  • Max: [pointing in Poozy's cage] What's that?
  • [In the middle of Poozie's cage is a white shell with Poozie inside, asleep and not moving at all.]
  • Cassie: *gasp* Oh she's dead! [She breaks down into tears.] Oh Poozy!
  • Emmy: That's so sad, Cassie.
  • Ord: [sad] Sure is.
  • [Cassie picks a leaf and wraps it around Poozy when Quetzal stops by.]
  • Quetzal: What's the matter niños?
  • Emmy: Cassie's pet Poozy died.
  • Quetzal: Oh no. I'm sorry to hear that Cassie.
  • Cassie: [sad] I miss her, Quetzal.
  • Quetzal: Si, I'm sure you do.
  • Cassie: [crying] And I didn't even get to say goodbye.
  • Quetzal: Well, we'll have to fix that, Cassie.
  • Cassie: How?
  • Quetzal: [placing Poozy in a hole in a tree trunk] There you go, Poozy. You can say goodbye to her now.
  • Cassie: Goodbye, Poozy. I'll never forget how you used to crawl into my pouch and tickle my tummy.
  • Ord: And I really liked your tricks, Poozy. They made me smile.
  • Wheezie: I just love the way you mad that silly mustache on Zak. [She giggles.]
  • Zak: Yeah, you weren't so bad for an itchy crawly bug.
  • Emmy: Goodbye Poozy. I didn't get to play with you much, but you were really pretty.
  • Max: Yeah, and you didn't bark or chew my socks, like Uncle Roberto's chihuahua.
  • Ord: Are you going to say something, Quetzal?
  • Quetzal: You're very lucky to have had so many good friends, Poozy. Adios.
  • Cassie: Thank you, Quetzal. [Quetzal hugs her.] I think I feel a little better now.
  • [Ord's tummy growls.]
  • Max: What was that?
  • Ord: My tummy growled.
  • Quetzal: Perhaps it's time for some dragonberry cookies and milk, no?
  • Max: Yeah.
  • Ord: You betcha.
  • Zak: Sounds great.
  • Emmy: Definitely.
  • Cassie: Uh, okay.
  • Quetzal: Bueno, I'll make up a batch and be right back. [He leaves.]
  • Wheezie: Come on, Cassie. Let's go jump on the mushrooms.
  • Cassie: Thanks Wheezie, but I don't feel like it right now.
  • Emmy: You're still thinking of Poozy, aren't you?
  • Cassie: Uh-huh.
  • Ord: Maybe we could find you another pet.
  • Wheezie: Yeah, there's all kinds of cool creatures in Dragon Land, flapping ones, and bouncy ones.
  • Zak: And itchy ones and stinky ones.
  • Cassie: But none will ever be as perfect as Poozy.
  • Emmy: How do you know?
  • Cassie: Well...
  • Max: Come on. Let's go pet hunting! [They start to hunt for a new pet for Cassie.]
  • Wheezie: Cassie will love this one.
  • Zak: Eeww!
  • Wheezie: What do you think Cassie? It's a Horse Fly.
  • [The Horse Fly neighs]
  • Cassie: Uh, no thanks Wheezie.
  • [A Fruit Fly comes by]
  • Zak: Uh, how about this one, Cassie? Neat Fruit Fly, huh?
  • Fruit Fly: Fruity tutti rootie.
  • Cassie: It's cute, Zak.
  • Max: I found one. I found one.
  • [Stinky-Dink roams]
  • Ord: D-d-don't get too close, Max.
  • Max: Why not?
  • Ord: Cause that's a Stinky-Dink.
  • [Stinky-Dink sprays Max with a foul-smelling smoke-like substance right in his face.]
  • Max: P.U.!
  • Cassie: I'm sorry, but I don't think I'll ever find a pet all of as much as...[A purple caterpoozle appears on her.] Poozy?
  • Max: That's not Poozy, she's a different color.
  • Cassie: She snuggles just like Poozy, and tickles like her too.
  • Emmy: She sure is cute.
  • Cassie: She is, isn't she?
  • Ord: I think she likes you.
  • Cassie: She does, doesn't she? I'm going to take real good care of you, but what should I call you?
  • Zak: Uh, how about Fuzzy?
  • Wheezie: Boring. Let's call her Caterpoozowy!
  • Max: I know. Ugly-bugly.
  • Cassie: *laugh* I don't think any of those names are exactly right.
  • Quetzal: Hola niños. Galletas. Fresh from the oven, y leche tambien.
  • Cassie: Look at my new pet, Quetzal.
  • Quetzal: Magnifico. That's a beautiful caterpoozle, Cassie. What's her name?
  • Emmy: Cassie hasn't decided yet.
  • Cassie: Yes I have! I'm going to call her Poozy 2!
  • Max: Cool.
  • Zak: Neato.
  • Ord: Wow.
  • Emmy: Definitely.
  • [Suddenly, Quetzal realizes something.]
  • Quetzal: Cassie, was Poozy 1 also a caterpoozle?
  • Cassie: Yes.
  • Quetzal: *laugh* Now I understand.
  • Ord: Understand what, Quetzal?
  • Quetzal: Follow me, niños.
  • [They head back to the tree with the white shell with Poozie inside; it is wiggling.]
  • Quetzal: I thought so. Watch carefully. She's breaking out of her cocoon.
  • [The cocoon wiggles more and breaks completely to reveal Poozie in a new form, a fairy with butterfly wings.]
  • Ord: Wow.
  • Zak: Fantastic.
  • Cassie: What is it?
  • Emmy: Yeah.
  • Quetzal: It's a butterfairy.
  • Max: But I thought Poozy was a caterpuzzle.
  • Quetzal: Caterpoozle, Max. And she was, but caterpoozles, like many other creatures, change as they grow up, just like you'll change, Maxito.
  • Max: Into a bug?
  • Quetzal: No! Into a man.
  • Zak: Take care!
  • Ord: See ya later!
  • Wheezie and Cassie: See ya!
  • Quetzal: Well Cassie, now you have a new pet caterpoozle and a new butterfairy friend.
  • [Cassie cuddles Poozy 2.]
  • Emmy: Let's take Poozy 2 for a hop around the mushrooms!
  • [They bounce on the mushrooms with Poozy 2.]
  • Emmy and Max: I wish, I wish to use this rhyme, to go back home, until next time. [They teleport back home.]
  • Emmy: Come on, Max. Let’s get our bug catching stuff.
  • Max: Yeah!
  • [They go over to the toy chest and search through it. Emmy takes out a jar.]
  • Emmy: I’m gonna catch a caterpillar so I can watch it turn into a butterfly. What about you?
  • Max: [pulls out a net] I’m gonna get a stinky bug! [plugs his nose] P.U.!
