Dialogue[]

  • Emmy: Do you have any...giraffes?
  • Max: Yeah, here's my giraffe.
  • Emmy: Thank you. [She puts down the giraffe cards.] Hmm, do you have any...tigers?
  • Max: Go fish. [Emmy draws a card.] Do you have any...[Suddenly, the wind blows teddy bears onto his lap.]
  • Emmy: Bears? [She and Max laugh.]
  • Max: I'm tired of playing cards. Let's go to Dragon Land.
  • Emmy and Max: I wish, I wish, with all my heart, to fly with dragons in a land apart. [They teleport to Dragon Land, where the dragons are riding on spinning shells.]
  • Ord: Whoopee!
  • Cassie: Whee!
  • Wheezie: Yay! Woohoo! Go, Ord, go!
  • Ord: [He does a trick and Max and Emmy appear on his lap.] Max! Emmy! You came to ride on the spinning shells with us!
  • Wheezie: Take a spin.
  • [Ord takes Max and Emmy for a spin.]
  • Emmy: Whoa. [She giggles.]
  • Max: Cool.
  • Wheezie: Round and round and round we go, to where we stop and nobody...[Their spinning shell hits a rock and knocks them into the water.]
  • Zak: ...goes! [He pops up with a starfish on the side of his head and everyone laughs.]
  • Emmy: *gasp* Look.
  • Zak: That cloud looks like Quetzal.
  • Cassie: It does.
  • Ord: That one looks like an elephant.
  • [The two clouds merge into a rain cloud, and it starts raining.]
  • Max: Hey, it's raining!
  • Ord: [He pulls an umbrella out of his pouch.] One umbrella, [He hands it to Emmy, who opens it up above herself and Max.] two umbrella, [He hands it to Cassie, who opens it up.] three umbrella, four! [Zak and Wheezie open their double umbrella.]
  • Wheezie: Love it!
  • [Ord pulls a big yellow umbrella out of his pouch and opens it up.]
  • Max: And one humongous umbrella!
  • [Just then, another rain cloud merges with the first one and it starts snowing.]
  • Emmy: Now it's snowy!
  • Ord: Time to bundle up. One earmuff, two earmuffs, three earmuffs...whoops, sorry, Max. Let's trade.
  • Max: Okay.
  • Wheezie: *laugh* It's raining over here, but it's snowing over here.
  • [Just then, another rain cloud merges with the first two and it starts to hail.]
  • Max: Now ice cubes are coming down.
  • Cassie: It's called hail. I've never seen anything like this before. Rain and snow and hail, all at the same time.
  • Zak: Well, don't look now, but more clouds are coming.
  • Cassie: Maybe Quetzal can tell us what's going on.
  • Quetzal: See, niños, this is very strange weather, even for Dragon Land.
  • Max: How come the clouds can't make up their mind?!
  • Quetzal: I was just about to ask Polly Nimbus the same thing.
  • Max, Emmy, Ord, Cassie, Zak, and Wheezie: Who?
  • Quetzal: Polly Nimbus. She's the Dragon Land cloud maker.
  • Emmy: She makes clouds?
  • Quetzal: Oh, yes indeed. Something must be wrong up in her cloud factory.
  • Cassie: Where is the cloud factory, Quetzal?
  • Quetzal: High in the Stickleback Mountains. The clouds are filled up with just the right amount of rain, or snow, or hail. Then they wait their turn, and then Polly sends them into the sky, one at a time. [A teeny tiny black cloud tickles Wheezie.] I should visit Polly to see what's wrong, but I have to take care of these leaks first.
  • Emmy: We can go, Quetzal.
  • Ord: Yeah, we can help.
  • Quetzal: Gracias, niños, that would be very nice.
  • Cassie: How do we find Polly's cloud factory, Quetzal?
  • Quetzal: Pick a cloud and follow it. Every cloud returns to the cloud factory when it's empty.
  • Wheezie: Ooh, follow the clouds. Sounds like fun. Let's go!
  • Quetzal: Tell Polly "Hola" from me!
  • Max: There's a good one to follow!
  • Wheezie: Ooh, a big fluffy one.
  • [They fly off to the Stickleback Mountains.]
  • Zak: There's another one!
  • Wheezie: Oh, oh, that's the one! I know it!
  • Max, Emmy, and the dragons: WAAAAA!!! [They fall into a big mound of snow.]
  • Zak: Wow, that was fun.
  • [They continue flying to the Stickleback Mountains.]
  • Max: I wish we had a cloud catcher.
  • Ord: Ta-da!
  • Max: What's that?
  • Ord: A cloud catcher. Watch. [He activates the cloud catcher and accidentally gets Zak and Wheezie.]
  • Wheezie: Ow!
  • Ord: Whoops. [Wheezie wiggles the tip of the cloud catcher off.] It'll work this time. [He activates the cloud catcher and catches a cloud.]
  • Max: Caught one!
  • [The cloud that Ord just caught pulls him forward.]
  • Ord: Grab on! [Zak, Wheezie, and Cassie grab onto his tail and the cloud pulls them forward.]
  • Max, Emmy, and the dragons: Whoa!!!
  • Cassie: There's the cloud factory.
  • [Suddenly, the rope on the cloud catcher breaks.]
  • Ord: Oh no! [He and Max crash land into a big mound of snow. When out of the mound, the cloud factory makes a farting sound.] Sounds like the factory is sick.
  • Emmy: Let's check it out.
  • [They enter the cloud factory.]
  • Ord: It's really really dark in there. [An icicle has a near miss with him.] Wait for me! [He catches up to his friends and they all reach Polly, who is sick.]
  • Emmy: Excuse me, are you Polly the cloud maker?
  • Polly Nimbus: [She blows her nose.] Yes.
  • Cassie: Quetzal sent us. He said to say "Hola".
  • Polly Nimbus: Oh, how nice, but don't come near me. I've got a terrible cold, with a stuffy nose, a scratchy throat, and...and...[She sneezes.]
  • Cassie: Oh dear. Maybe that's why your clouds are acting funny.
  • Max: It's raining and snowing and hailing outside, all at the same time.
  • Polly Nimbus: It is? Oh I better go see what's wrong. Where are my slippers, my scarf, and my mittens? Oh, since I caught this cold, I haven't been able to keep track of anything, even my clouds. [She sneezes.]
  • Zak: [picking up the tissue box] No kidding.
  • Polly Nimbus: Oh thanks hon. [She blows her nose.]
  • Zak: You know, you should clean this place up. You'd feel better, and your clouds would too.
  • Polly Nimbus: Uh, I know. I'm usually very neat, but I've been too sick to cl...to cl...to cl...cl...cl...clean. [She sneezes.]
  • [They go to the cloud machines.]
  • Polly Nimbus: Oh no, It's worse than I thought. My rain making machine is out of control, and my snow making machine...Ah!...is too smelly...Ah!...and my hail making machine...oh...is working over time. Oh this is terrible. What am I going to do?
  • Cassie: There has to be some way to fix your machines.
  • Emmy: We just have to think.
  • Max: Hey, I know. My daddy uses his tool belt all the time to fix his machines. Maybe these can fix yours.
  • Polly Nimbus: My tools? What a good idea. [She tries Max's idea.] Oh, it's not helping.
  • Wheezie: Look at all these pretty buttons. Don't they tell the machines what to do?
  • Polly Nimbus: Oh, I thought I had checked those. [She presses some of the buttons.]
  • Max: I think you're making it work.
  • Emmy: What about this lever, Polly? It looks just like the one on our toy tractor.
  • Polly Nimbus: *cough* Excuse me. It's worth a try. [She presses the lever very hard.] Oh I think it's frozen.
  • Ord: I can move it. [He moves the lever and it flings him onto the conveyor belt and he gets covered in ice and breaks out of it shortly.] I guess that didn't fix anything.
  • Polly Nimbus: Oh, it's hopeless.
  • Emmy: Don't give up, Polly. There must be something else we can do to fix the cloud machines.
  • Zak: This place is such a mess. If we clean it up, we might be able to see what they're doing. [He and Wheezie pull Polly's scarf out from between two gears.]
  • Emmy: Look! The rain machine is fixed!
  • Zak: It is?
  • Polly Nimbus: My scarf. Oh thanks, hon. [She puts on her scarf.]
  • Emmy: Maybe there's more stuff blocking the other machines.
  • Zak: That's it. That's it! Let's clean up!
  • Max: [He pulls out Polly's slippers with a pair of tweezers.] Hey look. I found these fuzzy things.
  • Polly Nimbus: So that's where my slippers went.
  • Emmy: And look! The snow machine is all fixed!
  • [Max gives Polly her slippers and Polly puts them on.]
  • Polly Nimbus: Oh, oh my toesies are so happy.
  • Cassie: [She takes Polly's mittens off a lever.] And here are some mittens.
  • Polly Nimbus: [putting on her mittens] Is that where I left them?
  • Cassie: All the cloud machines are working again.
  • Polly Nimbus: Oh, what a beautiful sight.
  • Emmy: Definitely.
  • Polly Nimbus: Oh, thank you all. You know, I'm feeling much better already.
  • Zak: Any time you want us to clean up, just call...
  • Wheezie: Zak.
  • [Everyone laughs.]
  • Emmy and Max: I wish, I wish, to use this rhyme, to go back home until next time. [They teleport back home.]
  • Max: [He puts the teddy bears back where they were.] Hey, let's go find her.
  • Emmy: Who?
  • Max: The lady in charge of the wind. We gotta tell her to turn her machines down.
  • Emmy: I have a better idea. [She closes the window.]
