Dialogue[]

  • Mom: Emmy! Max! Everything okay up there?
  • Emmy: Yeah, Mom! We're just coloring! [She finishes drawing and shows a picture of Cassie to Max.] There, look what I did!
  • Max: Wow. It looks just like Cassie.
  • Emmy: That's because it is Cassie. I'm gonna give it to her for a present.
  • Max: You're going to Dragon Land? Me too, I got a big surprise for Ord! [Max takes out a piece of bubble gum from his pocket] He's gonna love it.
  • Emmy: What is it?
  • Max: Bubble gum! And I only chewed it one time. Hey, we need something for Zak and Wheezie!
  • Emmy: I know! We'll let them borrow our harmonicas. [Emmy finds and grabs the two harmonicas in the toy box.] Come on, Max. Let's go to Dragon Land. [Emmy opens up the dragon box looking at the dragon scale in it.] The magic dragon scale is so pretty.
  • Emmy and Max: I wish, I wish, with all my heart, to fly with dragons, in a land apart. [They teleport to Dragon Land and end up at the top of a slide in the schoolyard.]
  • Cassie: Emmy!
  • Ord: Max!
  • Emmy and Max: Whee! Woohoo! Yeah!
  • [Ord catches them and hugs them too tightly.]
  • Emmy:Uh, Ord? You're Squishing us!
  • Ord: Oops! Sorry.
  • Emmy: Here, Cassie. I drew this for you.
  • Cassie: It's a picture of me. Oh thank you. I really, really like it.
  • Emmy: [to Zak and Wheezie] And these harmonicas are for you two.
  • [Zak and Wheezie take them. Zak blows softly on his, but Wheezie blows hard and loudly on hers, much to Zak's chagrin... annoyance.]
  • Wheezie: [giggles a little] Looove it!
  • Max: That's it Ord, keep chewing and blow a bubble. More! More! Whoa!
  • Ord: [The bubble pops and he drops back to the ground and makes a crater.] Is that how bubble gum works?
  • Max: Kinda?!
  • [Just then the bell rings.]
  • Quetzal: Ah, Emmy and Max, bienvenidos.
  • Max: Hola, Quetzal.
  • Quetzal: Now niños, today is a big big day for our friend Ord. Today, Ord's special job is to find a magical star seed. Deep in the Forest of Darkness, there lives a star tree. Ord, my boy, I would like you to bring back one star seed from this tree.
  • Ord: You betcha, but where do I find a star tree? Do you know, Cassie?
  • Cassie: I think so. Is it just past Half Moon Rock?
  • Quetzal: Eight paces to be exact. Very good, Cassie. And here is what Half Moon Rock looks like.
  • Ord: Is the forest... uh... you know... safe?
  • Quetzal: Sí, Ord, very safe.
  • Ord: Can I bring my friends to help?
  • Quetzal: Of course. That's what friends are for.
  • [Max, Emmy, and the dragons fly off to the Forest of Darkness.]
  • Ord: How much farther, Cassie?
  • Cassie: We're really really close. The Forest of Darkness is just past the Dragoon Lagoon. Look, there it is, the forest of darkness.
  • Emmy: This is going to be cool. Definitely.
  • [They land and are about to enter the forest of darkness.]
  • Emmy: Let's go.
  • Ord: Wait a minute. Wait a minute! Nobody told me it was going to be dark in there!
  • Zak: Why do you think they call it the forest of darkness?
  • Ord: But it's really really dark! There might be monsters in there! Big, huge, hairy, scary monsters! [He turns invisible.]
  • Emmy: Wait Ord, come back!
  • Max: Where's he going?
  • Emmy: Come on. Let's find him. [They start to follow Ord's tracks.]
  • Zak: In case you haven't noticed, Ord can turn invisible when he's scared. We'll never find him, never ever, not in a gazillion years!
  • Emmy: Oh yes we will. Where do you think that's coming from?
  • [They continue following Ord's tracks and tears are dropping from his invisible eyes, as he is crying.]
  • Emmy: Ord, please stop crying. You're going to wash away everything in Dragon Land. Tell us what's wrong, Ord.
  • Max: Please Ord? [Ord turns back to visible.]
  • Ord: [sad] I can't get the star seed because I'm scared of the dark.
  • Emmy: The dark's not scary.
  • Ord: Uh huh it is. Monsters live in the dark.
  • Emmy: Ord, there's definitely no monsters in the dark.
  • Wheezie: Emmy's right. Now we'll help you find the star seed.
  • Emmy: You just have to tell yourself you can do it even if you are afraid.
  • Ord: I think I can. I think I can. I think I can. [He hears a hoot.] Nope I can't. I wish I wasn't such a scaredy dragon.
  • Wheezie: I have an idea. Let's play a song. Music helps me forget when I'm afraid.
  • Emmy: That's great, Wheezie. We can make a parade and march into the forest.
  • Wheezie: A parade? Love it. Left, right, left, right. Zaky, feel the beat, move your feet.
  • Zak: Okay, okay, but we play nice and easy.
  • Wheezie: I say we play fast and wild, baby!
  • Emmy: Everybody follow me.
  • Ord: Are you scared, Max?
  • Max: Me? Nah, I'm big, but maybe we should hold hands, just in case.
  • Ord: Good idea.
  • [They all march into the forest of darkness.]
  • Ord: This is so dark and scary, but I'm going to do it. I'm going to find the star seed.
  • Emmy: See, no monsters here.
  • Ord: Yeah. This parade is fun. I'm feeling a little better.
  • Wheezie: Emmy, wait. I think we left someone behind.
  • Emmy: Max, Ord, Zak, Wheezie, Cassie, me. We're all here.
  • Wheezie: Then, who's that?
  • [A pair of big eyes and no more of a figure is shown in the darkness.]
  • Ord: Monster! Hide! [He scurries into a hollow log.]
  • Emmy: It's not a monster, it's just a huge pair of eyes coming closer and closer. I'll just pop in there and make sure you're okay. It'll never find us in here.
  • Forest Bird: Uh, excuse me, many pardons, are you lost? Because if you're lost, I can help you.
  • Max: You have big eyes.
  • Forest Bird: Oh yes. Quite big. Large, really. So, which is it? Lost or not lost?
  • Emmy: We're definitely not lost.
  • Cassie: We're just taking a very, very long time to find Half Moon Rock.
  • Forest Bird: Half Moon Rock, you say? Oh, delightful. You're right on course. Just straight ahead between those trees.
  • Emmy: Thank you.
  • Forest Bird: My pleasure. Love to be of service. Toodle-oo!
  • [She leaves.]
  • Emmy: See Ord, no monsters.
  • Max: Nice bird.
  • [They march between the two trees the forest bird was talking about.]
  • Ord: Are we there yet?
  • Zak: Do you see Half Moon Rock?
  • Ord: No.
  • Zak: Then we aren't there yet.
  • Ord: Boy oh boy, I wish this was the forest of light. Hey, that's it, we need light.
  • Emmy: That's a great idea, Ord.
  • Cassie: We do have our fire breath.
  • Ord: Yes yes, fire breath! That'll make a huge light!
  • [Zak clears his throat and breathes fire.]
  • Ord: It's bright.
  • Max: Just like a flashlight.
  • Emmy: You did it Zak. Now lead the way.
  • Ord: Thank you Zak. The light makes me feel better.
  • [They finally reach Half Moon Rock.]
  • Ord: Do you think this is Half Moon Rock?
  • Cassie: It looks just like the picture in Quetzal's book.
  • Ord: Quetzal said to take eight steps beyond Half Moon Rock to find a star tree. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven...[He bumps into a tree trunk.]...eight. It doesn't look like a star tree. Where are all the star seeds?
  • Max: We came all this way, and there's not even one star seed on that tree.
  • Cassie: You know, you can't see a star in the daylight. It needs to be dark.
  • Ord: I guess there are some happy things you can only see in the dark, like the stars. Maybe... maybe it needs to be dark to see the star seed. [He takes Max's hand.] Go ahead, Zak. Turn out the light.
  • Wheezie: Are you sure?
  • Ord: With all of you with me, I'm not scared much.
  • [Zak deactivates his fire breath and stars appear on the tree.]
  • Emmy: Wow, it really is a star tree.
  • Ord: Look! my dragon badge! It's shining!
  • Max: What's a dragon badge?
  • Ord: All dragons wear them.
  • Cassie: They shine when you do something really really hard, like Ord did.
  • Ord: I came all the way through the forest of darkness, even though I'm scared of the dark.
  • Max: I knew you could do it, Ord!
  • Ord: And now I'm going to get a star seed.
  • [Ord flies up to the big tree and picks and grabs a glowing star seed.]
  • Ord: It was really dark and I was scared but I kept trying. And all my friends were with me and then we made a parade. And then we shone a light. And you know what? The dark didn't seem so scary anymore.
  • Quetzal: Bueno, Ord. You should be very proud! [Quetzal takes the glowing star seed from Ord.] What? [Quetzal is now listening to the star seed while holding it up to his ear.] You have a surprise for Ord?
  • Ord: For me?
  • Quetzal: [Gives back the glowing star seed to Ord] It seems so. But you'll have to wait until tonight when it's dark.
  • Ord: D-d-dark?
  • Emmy: Let us know what your surprise was, Ord. Next time we see you.
  • Quetzal: Who said you're going to miss Ord's surprise, eh? Esta noche, look out your window.
  • Emmy: Tonight? Definitely! Ready to go, Max?
  • Emmy and Max: I wish, I wish, to use this rhyme, to go back home, until next time. [They teleport back home.]
  • Quetzal: It's time, Ord.
  • Ord: I have my own star.
  • Max: Look! I bet that's Ord's surprise.
  • Emmy: Wow. His own star.
