Memorable Quotes[]

  • Emmy: Hi.
  • Max: Hiya, Enrique.
  • Enrique: Hola. ¿Qué tal?

  • Max: But you speak English really good.
  • Emmy: "Really well."
  • (Max glares at her.)
  • Enrique: I wish, I wish, with all I've got...
  • Emmy: No. It's "with all my heart."
  • Enrique: Ah. Corazón. Heart. Sorry.
  • Enrique: [upon arriving in Dragon Land] Imposible (That's the Spanish word for "impossible"). That scale is magical. But, why do you call this place "Dragon Land"?
  • Enrique: Dragones! Dragons!
  • Sid Sycamore: (about the dragons) They're really, very nice, you know.
  • Enrique: [gasp] A talking tree!
  • Enrique: Gracias. I... [seeing that Ord was his savior, he screams] Run, Max and Emmy! ¡Dragones! ¡Peligroso! Danger! [He bumps into a hidden Cassie, who is behind tall grass and falls back.]
  • Cassie: Are you okay?
  • Enrique: Hello. I'm... you have two heads!
  • Zak: Yep. Hers does most of the talking. Mine does most of the thinking. (chuckles)
  • Wheezie: Oh, Zaky!
  • Quetzal: Hola, Enrique. Something tells me you speak Spanish as I do, ¿sí?
  • Enrique: ¡Sí! ¡Sí!
  • Zak: Hang on tight, Enrique.
  • Enrique: You're not going to run too fast, are you?
  • Zak: Who said anything about running?
  • Wheezie: We're gonna fly!
  • Zak: Eating and flying. I'm not sure I approve of that combination.
  • Wheezie: Little Chips is gonna be so happy there.
  • Enrique: Maybe. Maybe not.
  • Cassie: What do you mean, Enrique?
  • Enrique: He's going to a whole, new place he's never been before. I bet that fish would be sad. Maybe even a little scared.
  • Cassie: Is that how you feel, Enrique? Sad? And a little scared?
  • Wheezie: Oh, Zaky. The fishy looks so happy in his new home.
  • Zak: No argument there, Wheezie, for once.
  • Enrique: But usted es tan grande. You're so big.
  • Zak: Maybe if you hadn't wasted all that firebreath cooking all that dragon corn...!
  • Wheezie: Well, you weren't complaining when you were eating it!
  • Quanita: Hi. I'm Quanita. Junior wizard. In training.
  • Wheezie: And I'm mad!
  • Max: Yeah. 'Cause you shouldn't take what doesn't belong to you. That's not right.
  • Cassie: You mean, you won't be coming back?
  • Ord: Pretty please? With dragonberries on top?
  • Enrique: Wow, Max and Emmy. Thank you for that amazing time in Dragon Land.
  • Emmy: De nada. But no telling anybody.
  • Enrique: Right. Not even my new friends at school. Well, as soon as I make some. Which should be a lot easier now that you guys have helped show me how.
  • Max: Betcha never thought you'd meet real dragons, did ya?
  • Enrique: No, and I can't wait to go back.

Notes and Trivia[]

  • This episode is the debut of Season 3, and is also similar to Season 1's episode "To Fly With Dragons."
    • Speaking of which, that episode is referred to at one point.
  • This is Enrique's first appearance.
  • Starting with this episode, Max’s voice is significantly different compared to the previous two seasons, mainly due to Danny McKinnon getting older, as he was 14 years old at that time.
  • Beginning with this episode (and for the rest of the season), Cassie's voice is slightly less forced and a bit more gentle sounding.
  • This is the show's first ever and only two-part episode.
  • Part 1 is the fourth and final episode where the playroom isn't seen in the end. The first episode is "The Fury Is Out On This One." The second episode is "Eggs Over Easy," & the third episode is "It Happened One Nightmare."
  • This two-part special was dedicated to former CTW crew member Nina Elias-Bamberger, who died of ovarian cancer on November 20, 2002 in Orlando, Florida, and that marks the second Dragon Tales production to receive this dedication, the first being the animated/live-action special Let's Start a Band.
  • Part 2 is the first and only episode where the transportation segment to Dragon Land does not appear.
  • Part 2 is the second episode to have to do with Dragon Land Aquarium, the first being "Finders Keepers," but the only one to ever show the inside of it.
  • Speaking of which, it is unknown who bought tickets to the aquarium, as nobody mentioned that, and according to the aforementioned episode, the rule is, "No ticket, no entrance." So between the events of the episode's acts, how did the gang manage to get into the aquarium and donate Chips?
  • In Part 2, Zak notes that Ord always flies with Max, Cassie with Emmy, and he and Wheezie themselves never had anyone before. Actually, while this is usually the case, there have been a few episodes with exceptions.
  • Max, Emmy, and Enrique do return home in Part 2, but the episode doesn't end right there, as Enrique is shown flying on Zak and Wheezie again then.
