Dialogue[]

  • [The episode begins at Max & Emmy's house, in which Max is building a block tower]
  • Max: Stay up. Come on, stay up.
  • [Max places a block at the top]
  • Max: Just one more.
  • [The tower begins to wobble]
  • Max: No, not that way!
  • [All the blocks fall down]
  • Max: (frustrated) Oh, no!
  • [Max angrily throws a block across the room. He then sits on the floor, crossing his arms. Emmy comes into the room]
  • Emmy: Hey, Max. What's wrong?
  • Max: My dumb block tower keeps falling down!
  • Emmy: Come on, Max. We can build another tower later. Why don't we go to DragonLand?
  • Max: Well..........
  • Emmy: I'll bet there's something fun going on there.
  • Max: Oh, okay.
  • [Scene fades to where Max and Emmy are holding the scale]
  • Both: I wish, I wish with all my heart, to fly with dragons in a land apart.
  • [Right on cue, the dragon pictures fly off the wall and circle around Emmy and Max, making them disappear in a bright flash]
  • [Scene enters Dragon Land where Ord is seen coming out of a bush as Cassie flies after him]
  • Cassie: I'm gonna get you, Ord!
  • Ord: (laughing) No, you're not!
  • [Ord then trips on a rock, making him fall face first into a mud puddle. Cassie flies over and tags him]
  • Cassie: You're it!
  • [Cassie flies away as Ord chases after her]
  • Ord: Here I come!
  • [As the chase continues, Cassie spots a cloud of sparkles where Max and Emmy usually appear and files over it just as they arrive. Ord sees them and skids right in front of them]
  • Ord: Woah!
  • Cassie: Emmy! Max! Hurry! We're playing dragon tag, and Ord's it!
  • [Cassie flies away]
  • Ord: Not anymore!
  • [Ord tags Max on the shoulder]
  • Ord: Sorry Max, now you're it! (laughing)
  • Emmy: Can't catch me, Max!
  • [Emmy and Ord run off]
  • Max: Oh yeah? I'm really fast!
  • [Max chases after them. He runs past a bush where Zak's head pops out of it]
  • Zak: Hey, Max. We're over here.
  • [Max stops running and turns around]
  • Wheezie: No, we're not. We're over here.
  • [Max runs after them. Zak and Wheezie pull their heads back in. Max searches the bush, but finds no one is there]
  • Max: Hey! Where'd you go?
  • Zak: Up here!
  • [Max looks up and sees Zak and Wheezie flying high above his head. Max jumps up trying to catch them, but is not able to]
  • Max: I can't reach!
  • [Soon Ord playfully runs past him]
  • Ord: Hey, Max! Try and catch me!
  • [Ord laughs as he runs away while Max runs after him. Eventually, Ord reaches a dragonberry bush and sniffs it]
  • Ord: Mmmmm.....Dragonberries! My favorite!
  • [Ord takes a berry and eats it. Meanwhile, Max stops and sees Ord stopping for a snack]
  • Max: I gotcha now!
  • Ord: Uh, oh!
  • [Ord sees Max coming and flies out of the way, causing Max to dive head-first into the bush]
  • Max: Ugh!
  • Ord: (concerned) Max, are you okay?
  • [Max pulls himself angrily out of the bush, covered in dragonberry juice]
  • Max: It's not fair!! I can't tag anyone!!
  • [Max crosses his arms as everyone else approaches him]
  • Emmy: Come on, Max. It's just a game.
  • Cassie: Don't get mad.
  • Max: But I am mad!!
  • [Max stomps his left foot in anger]
  • Max: How can I catch anyone?!
  • [Max picks up a rock and throws it angrily on the ground]
  • Max: I can't even fly!! You're all too good!
  • [Max then picks up a strange looking pod and throws it angrily as well]
  • Max: I hate dragon tag!!
  • [The pod flies right past Zak and Wheezie and it almost hits them, but it hits a tree instead, where it breaks in half. Everyone gasps]
  • Wheezie: Great balls of fire!!!
  • [A small creature jumps out of the pod]
  • Fury: Yahoo!! I'm free! Which means somebody around here must be mad.
  • [The fury sees Max with an angry frown on his face and goes up to him]
  • Fury: And I'm betting it's you.
  • Max: Who are you?
  • Fury: I'm a fury.
  • [Steam whistles out of the little creature's head, startling everyone]
  • Fury: So tell me. What made you so angry?
  • [Max stomps his right foot as he shouts]
  • Max: I never, ever get anybody at tag!!
  • Fury: Oh, you are mad!
  • [The fury cackles and grows a bit bigger]
  • Fury: Tell me more.
  • [Max stomps his foot twice again]
  • Max: and everyone's faster than me!!!
  • [The fury laughs again and grows bigger to the size of Max]
  • Cassie: Look! The fury's getting bigger!!
  • Fury: Anything else bugging you? Getting your goat? Growing your chops?
  • [Emmy pulls Max away]
  • Emmy: Leave my brother alone!
  • Ord: Yeah!
  • Fury: Hey, I didn't make him mad!
  • [The fury cackles and hops into a nearby bush. He pops his head out one last time]
  • Fury: (tauntingly) I'll be back!
  • [steam comes out of his head before he disappears into the bush]
  • Zak: I don't like the sound of that.
  • Max: Who was that guy?
  • [Cassie goes over to the tall grass and notices the pod that Max had thrown, now broken in half. She picks up the two halves]
  • Cassie: We better find out.
  • [The gang goes over to the School in the Sky to see Quetzal]
  • Quetzal: Here it is in the big storybook.
  • [Quetzal sprinkles in some magic and an image of the fury appears in the book]
  • Quetzal: Furies are magical creatures who love to see you angry. Because they grow and grow when you can't calm down.
  • [The fury is shown to be getting bigger]
  • Max: How do we get rid of him?
  • Quetzal: That's up to you, Max. Since you let the fury out of the tree pod, you are the only one who can put him back inside.
  • [The fury is shown going back in the pod as the image disappears]
  • Cassie: But the fury won't fit. He's already too big.
  • Zak: Yeah, he keeps getting bigger and bigger.
  • [Quetzal closes the book]
  • Quetzal: Ah, I know it's not easy for you, Max. But if you can calm down when you're around the fury, the fury will get smaller and smaller.
  • Max: You mean, I can't get mad? Ever?!
  • Quetzal: Oh, no Maxito. Everyone gets angry sometimes. The trick is to calm down after you do.
  • Max: But how can I calm down?! When I get mad, I get......SO MAD!!!!
  • Ord: Don't worry buddy. We'll help you.
  • Emmy: Definitely!
  • [Later, the gang is back outside, finding a trail of rather large footprints]
  • Emmy: Hurry everybody! The fury went this way!
  • [Emmy leads the others over a log over a river. As Max tries to follow, he keeps wobbling and getting bumped by the others]
  • Zak: Sorry Max.
  • [Max gets a little annoyed, but still continues. Ord tries to lend a hand]
  • Ord: Here, Max. Let me help you.
  • Max: I don't need help! I'm big.
  • [Max keeps walking, but starts wobbling again]
  • Max: Woah!! Oof!
  • [Max falls off the log and into the water]
  • Emmy: Are you okay?
  • [Max is not okay as he is soaking wet in the river]
  • Max: (angrily) No fair!! I always go last! And I'm always falling down!!
  • [The fury pops his head out of a bush behind Max]
  • Fury: Is somebody here getting a little angry?
  • [The Fury approaches Max]
  • Fury: Steam about to boil over?
  • Max: Yeah!! Me!!
  • [Max sits down angrily with his arms crossed, but looks behind him to see the fury has grown]
  • Fury: I love a good tantrum in the morning.
  • [Max gets back on his feet]
  • Fury: Oh, goody! You're still mad!
  • Max: What am I gonna do?! I don't know how to get un-mad!
  • Zak: Whenever we get mad, our mom tells us......
  • Wheezie: ...to sit on a quiet pillow until we calm down.
  • [The fury laughs and kicks some water at their faces, with Max still angry]
  • Emmy: Ord, do you have a quiet pillow in your hoard?
  • [Ord searches in his pouch]
  • Ord: Lets see.
  • [Ord pulls out a pair of orange shorts]
  • Ord: Nope.
  • [He tosses them aside and looks again. He pulls out a hot dog]
  • Ord: Nope.
  • [He tosses that aside and searches once more, until he finds something]
  • Ord: I've found it! I've found it!
  • Max: A quiet pillow?
  • Ord: No.
  • [Ord pulls out a rubber duck and pets it]
  • Ord: My rubber ducky. I've been looking everywhere for it.
  • Max: (growing impatient) What about my pillow?!
  • [Wheezie spots something close by]
  • Wheezie: Ah-ha!
  • [Zak and Wheezie walk over to it]
  • Zak: ‘Ah-ha’ what? It’s a rock.
  • Wheezie: Not just a rock, Zaky. We can make this a quiet rock. Well, since we don’t have a quiet pillow.
  • [She pats down on the rock]
  • Wheezie: Sit down, Maxxie.
  • [Max climbs up on the rock and sits down]
  • Max: Now what?
  • Wheezie: Take deep breaths.
  • [Max starts breathing rather fast]
  • Zak: Not so fast. Like this: In (inhales slowly), out (exhales slowly).
  • [Max tries again, much slower]
  • Both: In (inhale), out (exhale).
  • [The fury hops over to Max and splashes him in the face]
  • Fury: Hey, Max. Whatcha doin'?
  • [Max crosses his arms]
  • Max: I'm sitting on my quiet rock. And I'm getting un-mad.
  • [The fury is shocked to hear that and begins to shrink]
  • Emmy: It's working, Max! The Fury's shrinking!
  • Fury: Max, don't you want to stay mad? Remember how you felt when you couldn't catch anyone playing tag, and when you were stuck going last?
  • [Max closes his eyes and puts his hands over his ears trying to ignore whatever the Fury is saying to him]
  • Max: I'm on my quiet rock. Go away!
  • [Max then feels something move, as the rock he's sitting on is actually a turtle]
  • Max: Woah!!!
  • [The turtle walks away, causing Max to fall into the water, getting him wet]
  • Max: (irritated) Oh, great!!!
  • [Max gets up on his feet, feeling even angrier than before]
  • Fury: (excited) Oh, he's getting mad!! I can feel it!!!
  • Max: It's no fair!!! I'm always falling, and getting bumped, and going last! AND I HATE IT!!!!
  • [Max stomps his foot in the water, making a splash. The Fury laughs as he grows even bigger]
  • Fury: (Cackles) Ah, music to my ears!
  • [Max backs away. The fury laughs evily and leaves the river. He gives another loud steam whistle before running away]
  • Max: I tried.
  • [Max sits down, feeling bad]
  • Emmy: We know, Max. And you calmed down for a little while.
  • Max: (cheers up) Yeah. I guess I did. Maybe I can try again.
  • [The scene fades to where the kids and dragons are flying in the sky, searching for the little creature]
  • Wheezie: Down there!
  • [The fury laughs while the dragons follow. He hops over to the far side of a rock wall. The gang lands on the opposite side from his]
  • Cassie: The Fury's so big now! What if he never stops growing?!
  • [One-by-one, the dragons and Emmy climb up the rocks]
  • Zak: I don't even wanna think about it.
  • Emmy: Definitely.
  • [However, Max is behind everyone, struggling to get a good view]
  • Max: Hey! I can't see!!
  • [Max climbs up on the back of Ord, but ends up falling back, bouncing on a bush]
  • Max: Ow! Oof! Ow, ow, ow!!! Ugh!! Where is he?! I never get to see anything!!!
  • [Max starts shaking furiously]
  • Ord: Max, buddy! Stay calm!
  • [Max starts hopping with rage]
  • Max: I can't!!! I can't!!! I--Woah!!!!
  • [After one last bounce, the bush sends Max flying right over the rock wall, landing right behind the Fury]
  • Fury: Oh, goody!! Look who's here!! Still mad, I hope!
  • Max: (enraged) LEAVE ME ALONE!!!!
  • Fury: I love it when you stay mad!!!
  • [The Fury laughs as he grows to a monstrous size. Max's friends are watching with horror from behind the rocks]
  • Ord: Oooh, he's bigger than me!!
  • Zak: RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!!!!
  • [Zak tries to ran away, but being attached to Wheezie prevents him from doing so]
  • Emmy: Count backwards, Max! That's what dad says to do when I get mad at you! Then I don't think about being mad!
  • Max: Okay. Um.....10.....8.......3.....(gets frustrated) Oh, I don't remember how!
  • Fury: Come on, Max! Blow off some steam!
  • [Steam comes out of the Fury's stack, frightening Max]
  • Cassie: Use your fingers to help you count, Max!
  • Ord: Yeah, like this. 10, 9, 8.....uh....
  • Zak: 7, 6.....
  • Max: 5.....um, uh.....4
  • [The fury begins to shrink]
  • Fury: Don't listen to your friends! Stay mad! Do this!! (kicks) And this!! (stomps)
  • [Max refuses to listen and keeps counting, making the fury shrink even more]
  • Max: 3.....
  • Emmy: It's working, Max! It's working!!
  • Wheezie: Love it!!!
  • Max: 3....um....uh, what comes after 3?!
  • [Max starts over, holding both his hands out]
  • Max: 10, 9.....
  • [Max retracts each finger as he counts. His friends join in to help him out]
  • Everyone: 8, 7, 6, 5......
  • Fury: No, no!! Stay mad!! Throw something! Break something!! No more counting!!
  • Everyone: 4, 3, 2, 1!
  • [Once Max finishes counting, he feels better, making the Fury shrink back down to his normal size]
  • Fury: Ah!!! No!! No!! I'm shrinking!! I'm shrinking!!! I'm shrinking!!!!
  • [The Fury starts screaming, running around Max's legs]
  • Ord: Here, Max.
  • [Ord hands Max the pod, which he uses to trap the Fury back inside]
  • Max: Gotcha! I did it!! I did it!! I didn't stay mad!
  • [Ord hugs Max while everyone cheers]
  • Wheezie: (laughing) Alright!
  • Zak: Way to go, Max!
  • Emmy: Good job, Max! Definitely!
  • [Scene fades to where Max and the others are telling Quetzal what happened]
  • Max: It was the hardest thing to do in the whole wide world, but my friends helped me.
  • Wheezie: I helped with the quiet rock.
  • Zak: Me too!
  • Max: And then I counted backwards.
  • Quetzal: I'm so proud of you, niño.
  • Ord: I say it's time for dragon tag!
  • [Ord tags Max]
  • Ord: You're it!
  • [Ord runs off as Max follows]
  • Max: Excuse me, I gotta go play tag.
  • Quetzal: Go get 'em, Max
  • [Everyone starts running as Max chases after them]
  • Ord: (laughing) Run! Everybody Run!
  • Max: I'm gonna tag you!
  • [Max keeps on running, until he falls forward on the ground]
  • Max: Oof!!
  • [Max looks behind him, realizing he tripped over a log, making him frustrated again]
  • Max: Hey, that's no fair!! You're all too--
  • [The others look back, feeling a bit worried]
  • Cassie: Is Max mad again?!
  • [Max begins counting on his fingers]
  • Max: 10, 9, 8, 7.....
  • [As Emmy and Cassie approach him, Max smiles]
  • Max: Fooled ya!!
  • [Max tags Emmy]
  • Max: Tag, you're it!
  • [Max gets back on his feet and giggles as everyone else runs away]
  • Emmy: Ohhh!!! (giggles)
  • [the game continues as the episode ends fading to black]
