Dialogue[]

  • Zak: Where are we?
  • Wheezie: Inside Quetzal’s pop-up book……. I think.
  • Cassie: But where’s the story?
  • Max: Yeah. And the pop up stuff?
  • Zak: Quetzal said we can make up our own story.
  • Wheezie: Well, maybe we have to say what we imagine, like ‘I imagine………wild flowers!’
  • [Suddenly, a field of flowers appears as the background.]
  • Emmy: Jungle adventure!
  • [The scenery changes to a jungle.]
  • Zak: I was imagining a tea party.
  • [A table appears in front of the group, complete with a teapot and tea cups.]
  • Ord: Yeah. With lots of big stuff to eat!
  • [Suddenly, the ground begins to rumble.]
  • Zak: Wh-What did you think of, Ord?
  • Ord: A watermelon.
  • [Suddenly, a giant watermelon comes rolling straight towards them.]
  • Emmy: What about my jungle story?!
  • Zak: We’ll finish it later. After we RUN!!!!
  • [The gang all tries running away from the watermelon until they reach the edge of a cliff.]
  • Zak: We’re trapped!!!
  • Cassie: No we’re not! It’s our story. We can imagine anything!
  • Zak: Oh, then I imagine NOTHING!!!!
  • [Everyone screams, but then the watermelon disappears to blank along with everything else.]
  • Cassie: Wait! We have to decide who goes when.
  • Emmy: I know. Let’s pick numbers!
  • Zak: [Looking inside a hat showing the number 1] Hey! I got number 1!
  • Ord: [Showing the number 2] I’m second!
  • Emmy: [Showing the number 3] I got 3!
  • Wheezie: [Showing the number 4] I’m fourth!
  • Max: [Showing the number 5 ] I’m 5!
  • Cassie: [Looking disappointed] Looks like I’m last. [Then brightens up, showing the number 6] Which means I get to make up the ending!
  • Emmy: No fair! My turn comes before yours, Max.
  • Max: Well, I’m Captain Max of Star Command and I imagine we’re going into outer space!
  • Ord: What’s that, Max?
  • Max: Dragon beetle aliens!
  • Ord: [Getting scared] B-B-B-Beetles?! This story’s too scary!! I imagine we’re back on the ground!
  • [The scenery briefly changes to a meadow before disappearing to blank.]
  • Max: [angrily] Hey! My story’s ruined!!
  • Cassie: It’s not your story, Max. It’s supposed to be all of ours!
  • Max: But we picked numbers like Emmy said to!
  • Ord: Only we didn’t go in order.
  • Wheezie: I guess we all got too excited.
  • Emmy: No matter what we do, our stories keep getting all messed up!
  • Zak: Without any surprises.
  • Wheezie: But surprises are the best part of the story. And I LOVE SURPRISES!!!!
  • Zak: Well okay, but only if the surprise doesn’t surprise me.
  • Cassie: What should our story be about?
  • Max: How about………castles?
  • Emmy: With knights in shining armor!
  • Wheezie: And a big bad giant!
  • Zak: Not too big.
  • Ord: And lots of dragons!
  • Max: Of course there’s going to be dragons, Ord. You are a dragon!
  • Ord: [Laughs] Oh yeah!
  • Emmy: And there were two brave knights.
  • [Emmy is now wearing a suit of silver armor as it magically appears.]
  • Emmy: One named Lady Emmy and the other named Sir Max!
  • [Max appears to be wearing a suit of golden armor, but it happens to be too big for him. Then, the helmet visor suddenly falls over his face.]
  • Max: Hey! Your story doesn’t fit.
  • Cassie: Shhh! It’s not your turn yet, Max.
  • Cassie: Okay, now it’s your turn, Max.
  • Max: Good, ‘cause I imagine this suit fits me better.
  • [Max’s suit begins to shrink to wear its now more his size.]
  • Max: And I imagine the saddles got super rocket boosters. So hang on!
  • [Rocket boosters appear on the sides of Ord’s saddle and blasts off.]
  • Ord: WHOA!!!!
  • Quetzal: Well, how was your story, niños?
  • Emmy: It was awesome!
  • Ord: Course, at first, we were all trying to tell stories at the same time. It was kinda hard. But then, Cassie said we should take turns, so we did, and we made up a really cool story. Do you want to hear it? Huh? Do you, Quetzal?
  • Quetzal: Heh-heh-heh. Si. Tell me all about it.
  • Zak: We went on the swings!
  • [His voice is immediately drowned out by everyone else's. Everyone is so excited that no one can get a word in edgewise.]
  • Quetzal: [holds his hands up] Take it easy, niños! One at a time! One at a time! [chuckles]
  • Emmy: I imagine, I’m a Wild West rodeo girl!
  • Max: And I imagine I’m a duck driving a car, with a fire engine chasing me through the bathroom, and getting flushed down the toilet!!!
  • [Max rolls around on the floor laughing while Emmy just smiles, slowly shaking her head. The screen then fades to black ending the episode]
