Dialogue[]

  • [The episode starts out in the playroom, where Max and Emmy are wrapping presents. Emmy’s is all wrapped up neatly, while Max’s is rather wrinkled and uneven.]
  • Max: Look Emmy! I'm done wrapping my birthday present for Ord. Neat, huh?
  • [Max holds up his present, but the ribbon unravels and falls off.]
  • Emmy: [unsure] Uh, sure Max.
  • [Max struggles to tie the ribbon back on. So Emmy tries to help.]
  • Emmy: Put your finger on the ribbon, Max. I'll make a bow for you.
  • Max: Thanks.
  • [Max puts his left index finger on the knot while Emmy ties the bow. But it ends up being so tight, Max's finger gets stuck in the ribbon.]
  • Max: Hey! My finger’s stuck!
  • Emmy: Come on, Max. We gotta help Cassie get ready for Ord's surprise birthday party
  • [Max and Emmy hold the scale and start saying their opening wish.]
  • Max and Emmy: I wish, I wish with all my heart to fly with dragons in a land apart.
  • [The dragons on the wall come to life and circle around the two kids, flying faster and faster until they disappear in a bright light. Soon, they arrive in DragonLand.]
  • Emmy: Cassie!
  • Max: There she is!
  • [Max spots a dragon tail waving behind a tree. However, this one is blue, not pink.]
  • Emmy: Cassie! Look what we got for—
  • [The figure that comes out from behind the tree is, in fact, Ord]
  • Emmy: [whispering] It’s Ord! Hide your present!
  • [Emmy hides her gift behind her back. Max tries to hide his, but his finger is still stuck on the bow. Ord approaches the two kids. He bows down.]
  • Ord: Max. Emmy. Guess what? Today's my birthday. Look what mom and dad got me.
  • [Ord shows them a pencil with a feathery end. He draws a little tic-tac-toe grid in midair.]
  • Ord: It draws on anything. Wanna play with it?
  • Max: Yeah!
  • Emmy: No!
  • [Ord gets a little surprised at that response.]
  • Emmy: I mean, no kidding. Today’s your birthday.
  • Ord: Uh huh. It’s my very favorite day of the year. You wanna play?
  • [Max wanted to say yes, but then he remembered….]
  • Max: We can’t. We gotta go meet Cassie and set up the par-
  • Emmy: [interrupting] Picnic! Uh, Max and I are having a picnic with Cassie. So happy birthday, Ord. Bye.
  • Ord: But—
  • [Max and Emmy leave with their gifts behind their backs, leaving Ord all alone.]
  • Ord: Bye.
  • [The kids later arrived at the treehouse.]
  • Max: [whispering] Don’t forget the secret knock.
  • [Emmy nods and knocks on the door 4 times and then another 4 times. The door opens, revealing Cassie.]
  • Cassie: Max! Emmy! Phew! I’m so glad it’s you. I thought you were Ord.
  • Max: We’re not Ord. Ord’s in the meadow.
  • [Max and Emmy head inside, while Cassie gets a little worried that Ord might have followed them.]
  • Cassie: Is he coming this way?
  • Emmy: I don’t think so. We had to tell him he couldn’t play with us.
  • Max: I hope we didn’t make him sad.
  • Cassie: Well I bet he’s going to be really happy when we surprise him. Come on. You two can help me blow up the balloons.
  • [Cassie hands Max and Emmy a balloon. Max tries blowing one up, but let’s go of it and it flies around. Max then wobbles around, holding his head.]
  • Max: Wow! I’m dizzy.
  • Cassie: Don’t worry, Max. I’ll blow them up.
  • [Cassie blows up a balloon herself.]
  • Max: Hey, what can I do?
  • [Emmy hands Max the balloons.]
  • Emmy: You hold them. Don’t let go.
  • [Max is holding three balloons. A green, pointy one with yellow spots, and lavender one shaped like a star and a pink one with a smiley face on it. Max sticks his tongue out at the last one and laughs.]
  • Zak: Ord! Uh……
  • Wheezie: What are you doing here?
  • Ord: Today’s my birthday. Whatcha wearing the party hats for?
  • Zak: Hats?
  • Wheezie: What hats? [Looks to the ones on top of their heads.] Oh, those hats. Those aren’t party hats. They’re uh…..umm….
  • Zak: Rain-hats. Only it’s not raining. Guess we don’t need them, Wheeze.
  • (Just then, a knock is heard on the door.)
  • Zak: [whispering] That wasn’t the secret knock!
  • Sid: [Whispering] It’s Ord! Hide everything!
  • (Everyone scrambles to hide everything. Zak and Wheezie take the pizza, Max puts away the party hats, and Emmy takes the balloons and hands them to Sid.)
  • Emmy: Sid, will you hold these for me?
  • [Meanwhile, they hand the rest of the stuff to Zak and Wheezie.]
  • Zak: Where are you gonna put that?
  • [Wheezie ultimately decides to put the stuff in their pouch.]
  • Zak: Ew! That feels gross!
  • [All that was left was the tablecloth, which they remove as Ord opens the door.]
  • Ord: Hello?
  • [inside, the gang is sitting on the floor, doing a puzzle.]
  • Emmy: Oh, hi Ord. What’s up?
  • Ord: I wasn’t doing anything and, uh, I thought maybe you needed some help setting up your………[notices the room.] picnic?
  • Zak: We decided not to have the picnic.
  • Wheezie: Yeah. Putting together a puzzle is much more exciting.
  • Ord: I love puzzles. Can I play?
  • Emmy: Well uh…..um…….
  • Max: Sure.
  • [Emmy slaps her forehead. Zak slaps his as well and then Wheezie puts her hand over his.]
  • Max: You can help me, Ord.
  • Ord: Great!
  • [Ord heads to the school in the sky. Inside, he finds Quetzal, wrapping a gift.]
  • Ord: Quetzal?
  • Quetzal: Buenos Dias, Ord. How are you today?
  • Ord: Not so good.
  • [Ord notices the gift.]
  • Ord: Who’s that for?
  • Quetzal: A very good friend of mine.
  • [Ord goes back to being sad again.]
  • Quetzal: What’s the matter?
  • Ord: I’m sad because today’s my birthday, and it's a really special day, but my friends must not like me anymore because they don’t want to play with me. And Cassie didn’t invite me to her picnic, and then everyone decided to make a puzzle instead of a picnic, and before I could even push one piece together, they pushed me away and……and……and I’m not having a happy birthday at all.
  • Quetzal: Hmmm, you did the right thing coming to see me, Ord.
  • Ord: I did?
  • Quetzal: Sì. [Checks his pocket watch] I know just what to do to make you feel better.
  • Ord: You do?
  • Quetzal: Uh huh. Come with me.
  • (Both Ord and Quetzal go over to the treehouse. Inside, the others are watching from outside the window and laughing.)
  • Ord: But they don't want to play with me, Quetzal. I already tried.
  • Quetzal: Courage, Ord. Go up there and tell them what you told me.
  • Ord: Are you sure?
  • Quetzal: .
  • Ord: Okay.
  • (Ord goes up the stairs. He takes one last look toward Quetzal, who gives him a nod, before knocking on the door.)
  • Cassie: Who's there?
  • Ord: It's me, Ord. And I'm sad 'cause today's my birthday but no one wants me around. And I really want to be friends and play with you so can I come in? Can I, please?
  • Cassie: Not yet.
  • Ord: See? They don't want me.
  • Cassie: Okay, you can come in now.
  • Ord: Really?
  • (Ord opens the door.)
  • All: SURPRISE! [laughing] HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ORD!
  • Ord: You like me! You really like me.
  • (Max runs up to Ord and hugs him.)
  • Max: Of course we do, Ord. You're our biggest, bestest friend of all.
  • Emmy: We just didn't want you to find out about the surprise party.
  • Ord: Boy! I was really surprised.
  • [Wheezie lights the candle with her fire breath]
  • Wheezie: Come on, Ord. Make a wish and blow out the candle.
  • Ord: Okay?
  • [Ord uses wind power to blow it out.]
  • All: [cheering]
  • Max: All right, Ord.
  • [all laugh]
  • Emmy: Good one.
  • [Quetzal walks around with a knife in his hand and starts cutting the cake.]
  • Ord: [with his mouth full] This is the best birthday I've ever had.
  • [Emmy and Max say their closing wish.]
  • Max and Emmy: I wish, I wish to use this rhyme to go back home until next time.
  • (The two then disappear and appear back in the playroom)
  • Max: Oooh! My tummy hurts from eating all that cake.
  • Emmy: Me too. But it sure is a yummy tummyache.
  • Max: [laughs] Yeah.
  • Emmy: Where are you going, Max?
  • Max: To tell mom I want a surprise birthday party next year.
  • Emmy: But if you know it’s a surprise party, it won’t be a surprise.
  • [Max thought about that and realized she’s right.]
  • Max: Then you ask mom for me. Mommy! Emmy has something to ask you!
  • [Max heads out the door while Emmy just shakes her head.]
