Dialogue[]

  • [The episode starts in the playroom where Emmy is tying her right shoe while Max is waiting rather impatiently.]
  • Max: Come on, Em!!
  • Emmy: Done.
  • Max: Finally!
  • [Emmy switches over to her left shoe.]
  • Emmy: Now, I just have to do the other one.
  • Max: Oh! They're gonna start without us!! [Growls]
  • [Emmy is finishing up her hair as Max gets irritated and goes to get the dragon scale.]
  • Emmy and Max: I wish, I wish, with all my heart, to fly with Dragons, in a land apart.
  • [They are taken to Dragon Land where they see a gigantic dragon with seats in her scales.]
  • Emmy and Max: Whoa!!!
  • Emmy: The Roller Coaster Dragon! Awesome!!
  • Ord: Max!! Emmy!! Over here!!!!
  • Cassie: We saved a place for you.
  • Wheezie: Come on, come on, come on!
  • [They join the other dragons at the back of the line.]
  • Cassie: Here are your tickets.
  • Ord: You’re just in time for the next ride.
  • Wheezie: Ooh, I just love roller coasters! They’re so -- [screams loud and long]
  • Zak: They make my stomach go flip-flop.
  • Wheezie: I can't wait to ride! It's all I’ve been thinking about for weeks!!
  • Zak: You mean, it's all you’ve been talking about for weeks.
  • [At the front of the line is a gnome in charge of the ride.]
  • Ticket Taking Gnome: All aboard the Roller Coaster Dragon! Come on!!
  • [The line starts moving.]
  • Ticket Taking Gnome: Ah-ah! Tickets, please. Take your time, son. Everyone will get a ride.
  • Wheezie: This is the best roller coaster in Dragon Land!!
  • Zak: [looking worried] I hope it's not too fast...
  • Wheezie: We have to sit in the front seat!
  • Ord: [looking worried] Oh, I hope it's not too scary...
  • Wheezie: Oh! Oh! We’re almost there! [They reach the front.] Here.
  • [The ticket taking gnome closes the gate.]
  • Ticket Taking Gnome: Sorry, kids, she's full. You’ll have to wait til she gets back.
  • Wheezie: What?!?! [She sees that all the seats on the roller coaster are taken and there's no room for them.] Aw, how long will that be?
  • Ticket Taking Gnome: About... ten minutes. [shows an hourglass on his wrist]
  • Wheezie: TEN MINUTES?!?!
  • Cassie: Oh, well. At least we’re first in line for the next ride.
  • Ord: We’ll be able to sit up front, just like you wanted, Wheezie.
  • Ticket Taking Gnome: Keep your hands and tails inside the dragon at all times! And most important... have fun!!!
  • [The Roller Coaster Dragon takes flight; the riders begin to laugh and cheer as it does tricks in the sky.]
  • Max: Cool!!!
  • Wheezie: When did you say the next ride is?
  • Ticket Taking Gnome: Ten minutes.
  • Cassie: Don't worry, Wheezie, ten minutes isn’t that long.
  • Wheezie: I know. [beat] Is it ten minutes yet?
  • Ticket Taking Gnome: It won’t be ten minutes until all the sand falls to the bottom of the hourglass.
  • Wheezie: Maybe you can make the sand fall a little bit faster?
  • [The ticket taking gnome frowns a little in annoyance.]
  • Zak: Stop bothering the man, Wheezie!
  • Wheezie: I’m sorry, Zak. But I can’t help it! I want to ride the roller coaster so bad, I can taste it!!
  • Ord: Mmmm….really?! What’s it taste like?
  • Cassie: [Laughs] That’s just an expression, Ord.
  • Ord: Oooohhhh………! What’s an expression taste like?!
  • Emmy: All we have to do is stand here and wait till the Roller Coaster Dragon comes back. No big deal.
  • Max: I know how we can help Wheezie. Why don't we do something fun while we wait?
  • Ord: Yeah! Let's get some snacks. Over there, at the snack shack!
  • Emmy: I'll have a drink.
  • Max: I want some popcorn!
  • Zak: Give me a hot dog!
  • Cassie: Me, too!
  • Ord: Coming right up!
  • [Ord leaves; the Roller Coaster Dragon can be seen in the sky.]
  • Cassie: Try and relax, Wheezie. The food will take your mind off of --
  • Wheezie: [sees the Roller Coaster Dragon and gasps and becomes impatient] The Roller Coaster Dragon! [runs over to the ticket taking gnome] Is it time yet?! Is it?! Is it?! Is it?!
  • Ticket Taking Gnome: No!
  • Wheezie: How much longer?
  • Ticket Taking Gnome: Eh, eight minutes.
  • Wheezie: That much?!?! You sure your clock isn't broken?!
  • Ticket Taking Gnome: My clock tells perfect time. But if you don't stop asking me, I'll tell you it's time to go home!!
  • Zak: [chuckles nervously] I’m sorry, sir. She’s not gonna bother you anymore. Are you, Wheezie?!
  • [Zak takes Wheezie’s jaw and moves it around like a puppet, like shaking her head as to say "No".]
  • Zak: [Imitating Wheezie] No, I’m not!
  • [The ticket taking gnome is not amused by this, neither is Wheezie.]
  • Wheezie: Stop it, Zak!! I can wait in line as well as anyone else!
  • [Wheezie tries pretending to wait patiently, but she starts feeling anxious as sweat goes down her forehead, and then gets irritated and becomes impatient again.]
  • Wheezie: [frantic] Will it be back soon?! Will it?!?! Will it?!?!?! Will it?!?!?!?!
  • [The ticket taking gnome just turns away in annoyance. Zak then angrily grabs Wheezie’s mouth tightly, trying to hold it shut.]
  • Max: Maybe Wheezie needs to go to the bathroom.
  • Wheezie: I don't need to go to the bathroom. I NEED TO RIDE THE ROLLER COASTER DRAGON!!!!!!
  • Emmy: We have to help Wheezie learn to be patient and wait.
  • Zak: Maybe it'll be easier, Wheezie, if we give Ord a hand with the snacks.
  • Wheezie: I'll try anything!
  • [The head to the snack shack.]
  • Zak: Hi, Ord. Can we help?
  • Ord: Thanks. It'’s almost my turn.
  • Wheezie: [to the six-armed dragon chef] Hurry up!!! We have to get our snacks and get back in line before the roller coaster comes back!!!
  • Dragon with 6 arms: Do I look like an octopus, kid? I only have 6 arms.
  • [Wheezie stands back and the chef shrugs. Later on, Ord steps up.]
  • Dragon with 6 arms: Okay, what can I get you?
  • Ord: Oh, uh, I'll have some popcorn and two hot dogs and a large dragonberry juice. And uh, better make that two popcorns, and maybe you should take off one hot dog and get me a hamburger instead. Oh, and a bag of mango chips. And I think I'm gonna need two small dragonberry juices, instead of one big one. And I'm gonna need another popcorn, and maybe I'll change the mango chips for one of those big pineapple fruities. Or-or should I--?
  • Wheezie: [getting irritated] Oh! Just give us two of everything!!!
  • Dragon with 6 arms: Coming right up.
  • Zak: Take it easy, Wheezie!!
  • Wheezie: Okay! Okay! I’m still having trouble waiting!
  • [The food is ready; the chef hands the order to Ord.]
  • Ord: Thanks!
  • [They take the snacks over to the others.]
  • All: Mmm!/I’ll have one of those!/I want a drink!/Burger for me!
  • [They get the snacks and eat.]
  • Wheezie: [mouth full of the hot dog she's eating] We better hurry! The roller coaster could be back any minute! [swallows]
  • Zak: Wheezie, you're going to make us sick eating that fast! [burps] Excuse me. See what I mean?!
  • Wheezie: I just can't wait anymore! It's so exciting thinking about the roller coaster!!
  • Max: Two points, I’m winning! [throws a piece of popcorn into a box]
  • Emmy: Not for long. [throws one of her pieces of popcorn into Max's box]
  • Zak: Max and Emmy aren’t having trouble waiting.
  • Wheezie: Hm. Maybe we could something to keep my mind off the roller coaster. Oh, oh, oh! I know! Let'’s see what kinds of things we can find in the clouds!!
  • Cassie: Great idea!
  • Ord: You betcha!
  • Zak: I wanna play too!
  • Ord: Look! A delicious dragonberry muffin!
  • Cassie: I see... a unicorn. Or maybe a merry-go pony!
  • Zak: Uh, that’s great, Cassie. What do you see, Wheezie?
  • Wheezie: I see.............A ROLLER COASTER!!!!
  • [Everyone else groans in annoyance, especially the ticket taking gnome]
  • Wheezie: Come on!!! It must be back!!! We've been waiting forever!!! It's been much more than 10 minutes, hasn't it?!?!
  • Ticket Taking Gnome: Keep your scales on, kid!! Oh brother, these dragons today!
  • Wheezie: Oh, it’s no use! No matter what I try, I always end up thinking about the roller coaster dragon.
  • Emmy: Don’t give up, Wheezie.
  • Wheezie: But I made the ticket taker mad and I’m ruining everyone’s fun! Maybe I should just go home.
  • Zak: No fair! Then I won’t be able to ride the roller coaster dragon either! [Realizing happily] Wait. Maybe that’s a good thing!
  • Wheezie: I will not think about the roller coaster dragon. I will not think about the roller coaster dragon. I will not think about …….[gives up and starts getting irritated] Oh, how can I not think about the roller coaster dragon by thinking of NOT THINKING ABOUT IT?!?!?!?!
  • Cassie: There must be some way to keep Wheezie's mind off the roller coaster.
  • Emmy: How about a game of patty-cake? It's Wheezie's favorite.
  • Wheezie: Loooooove it!
  • [They take turns slapping hands and playing.]
  • Wheezie and Emmy: Patty-cake, patty-cake, baker's man.
  • Wheezie and Ord: Bake me a cake as fast as you can.
  • Ord: Yum!
  • Wheezie and Cassie: Roll it, and pat it, and mark with a Z.
  • Wheezie and Max: Then put it in the oven for Zaky and me!
  • [Everyone laughs and cheers.]
  • Wheezie: Hey. It worked!! For a minute I wasn't thinking about anything but patty-cake!
  • Cassie: Maybe you found the secret, Wheezie!
  • Wheezie: Yeah! The trick to waiting is to do something that's really fun and doesn't remind me of a roller coaster.
  • Zak: Oh, no, you said the R-word!
  • Wheezie: Relax, Zaky. I just thought of another way to take my mind off the roller coaster: A song!
  • Zak: Whew! In that case, I know just the one, Wheeze.
  • [Zak takes out a harmonica and blows into it; Ord takes out a saxophone and plays it.]
  • Zak: Oh, my sister, she sure is a wild one, sometimes more annoying than fleas. But given a choice between one head or two, I'd stick with My best friend Wheezie! Ohhhhhhhh......!!!!
  • All others: She floats through the air with the greatest of ease! The daring young dragon we all know as Wheeze! Her dancing's not graceful, but as you can see, she's always a barrel of laughs!
  • [Zak laughs and Wheezie laughs too, then snorts.]
  • Zak: [looks up] Wheezie?
  • Wheezie: Let's sing it again, Zaky!
  • Zak: But Wheezie...!
  • Wheezie: What?!
  • Zak: That!!!
  • [The Roller Coaster Dragon is returning.]
  • Cassie: The Roller Coaster Dragon!!!
  • Wheezie: Ah, I was having so much fun I didn't even notice!!
  • [They all cheer as the Roller Coaster Dragon lands. The riders get off and the ticket taking gnome opens the gate to let them out.]
  • Ticket Taking Gnome: You're up, kiddo! And thank you for waiting.
  • Wheezie: My pleasure! [giggles]
  • [They all get on the Roller Coaster Dragon; she lifts off as all the riders laugh and cheer. The dragon does loops around the Stickleback Mountains.]
  • Wheezie: Wahoo!!!
  • [More cheering; now the dragon flies through Rainbow Canyon.]
  • All: Whoa!!!
  • Wheezie: This was definitely worth waiting for!!!
  • [They all cheer and the ride continues.]
  • Emmy and Max: [voiceover] I wish, I wish, to use this rhyme, to go back home until next time.
  • [Changes back to the playroom as Emmy and Max return home.]
  • Max: Wasn't that the best, Emmy?
  • Emmy: Definitely!!
  • Mom: Max? Emmy? I'm going to the store to get dinner and ice cream. Be back in fifteen minutes.
  • Emmy and Max: Ice cream?!?!
  • Max: Only fifteen minutes?! I can wait that long, easy!
  • Emmy: Me too! Let's draw!
  • [They sit at the table and draw different shapes.]
  • Max: I drew a circle. Your turn!
  • Emmy: There's a triangle.
  • [The shapes, however...]
  • Max: Oh, no! It looks like an ice cream cone!
  • Emmy and Max: [standing and crying out] MOOOOOOOOOM!!!!!!!!!
  • [They become impatient realizing they have to wait as the scene fades to black ending the episode.]
