  • When I first watched this I thought it was disgusting, but now I come to realise that it's actually my favourite episode of the entire series.

    This is one of those Jake/Rose episodes. For science, Jake's class needs to pair up and invent something original. They have one week. Jake uses his "eye of the dragon" to deliberately pull Rose's name out of the hat. Then he finds out that he has just started his multing cycle and that his skin will become greyer and lumpier than a bowl of expired oatmill. But then he becomes obsessed with his apperance and constantly trying to hide from Rose. But Rose needs to tell him something; The Huntsman's plan to destroy all magical creatures!

    This episode is very impotant to the main story line, it teaches a great lesson and is pretty funny. Maybe it's a little gross, but it deserves that nomination it got and should have won the award too!moreless
  • What happens when Jake and Rose are forced to spend time together?

    Rose is afraid to spend any time with Jake for fear of being found out by the Huntsman that she betrayed him to a dragon. So Jake sets it up where they are forced into spending time together, by being partners on a science project. At the same time they must work together to stop the Huntsman from getting even closer to his goal of wiping out all magical creatures. But, when the worst happens, Rose may be forced to leave the city, and Jake. I loved how Rose said she doesn't care what Jake looks like. This is an episode that shows you appearances aren't everything. We find out the Huntsman's master plan to wipe out magical creatures. Jake and Rose now have to use a different, safer method to see each other. Dream charms. Will the Huntsman find out about Rose's betrayal? If so, what will he do to her? What is the Huntsman's master plan? Watch to find out. Awesome episode.moreless
  • Breakout is about when Jake had his multing cycle and he is aftrid for Rose to "Quote from the show" See the real him. Also Rose and Jake get paired up for a project. The huntsmen wants Rose to prove she slayed a dragon.moreless

    This epsiode is my favorite! Jake and Rose get closer together. When Jake has to pick a name out of a hat for his science project partener, he uses his dragon eye to see inside and he chose Rose. To prove to her that spending time with her will not put her in danger. But then Jake starts his multing cycle and is aftaid to show Rose "Quote" The real him. But that is not all that happends also Rose 88 and 89 are off to get a aztec skull from a skake. When huntsgirl, 88, and 89 fail 2 times the huntmen gose to find the skull. Also 88 & 89 see Jake as the american dragon and Rose together so its off to the huntsmen with the bad news. The huntmen wants prove that Rose slayed Jake at the accemey. So when the huntsmen is after the skull jake gets cournerd and luckly Rose is there to save him. She stunes him and Jake gose and hides. Rose asked him to come out and she tells him "Quote" Jake The huntsmen wants me to prove that I slayed a dragon, i'm going to have to leave New York... For GOOD! Luckley jake was having his multing cycle cuz Trixie and Spud gave him some cream and his skin came off. Then the next day Jake had to present his project they showed roses dream charm and got a C-. At the end Rose and Jake are talking and say: "Quote"

    Rose: I can't believe you'd think I'd freak out about the way you looked. You're a Dragon, and I'm cool with that.

    Jake: So where do we go from here? I guess we can't hang out anymore?

    Rose: I'd love to but it's just to dangerous.

    Jake: Yeah I guess you're--Did you just say you'd love to?

    (Rose realizes what she said and smiles) Dang! Someone's got it bad for the Jake man!

    Rose: In your dreams honey.

    (She hands him something)

    Jake: You're giving me your Dream Charm?

    Rose: Actually, I'm giving you your own Dream Charm. I figure since you got a dream and I got a dream...See you tonight?

    Jake: Definetlymoreless
  • #88 and #89 appear in this episode!

    I love # 88 and # 89! They were a great add on to this season! Ok let's get back to the episode. Breakout was about Jake's skin pealing off. First I thought it was gross but when I watched this episode again, I acually laughed alot. It was full of comedy, action, a little bit of drama, and did I mesion the comedy? I liked it and I know alot of other American Dragon : Jake Long fans liked it too. It had a lot of the things most of us were looking for. Especialy the Rose Jake shipping. I'd recomend this episode to whoever likes to laugh and whoever is a fan of American Dragon : Jake Long.moreless
  • Awesome on a stick.

    This episode is one of the best in the whole series.And it is also when the suspection that Rose is working with Jake begins. This is also the episode where we find out the Huntsman's plan that will ultimatly lead to his destruction. I thought it was funny ow Spud and Trixie would react to Jake when they saw his skin. I also though it was funny when Stacey kept on screaming when Spud would try to talk to her. In my opinion, this is one of the best episodes where Rose and Jake are in it. You can feel the connection between them.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (5)

    • We learn that the green stuff in Jake's hair is hair gel.

    • Between now and
      Homecoming every Crystal Skull has purple eyes. In this episode and Homecoming they have different colored eyes.

    • When Rose/Huntsgirl brings Huntsman Jake's skin, Jake's hair was on it. Why would Jake's hair come out with his skin?
      Reply: It's possible that while in dragon form, Jake's hair becomes part of the spines on his back. So, when he sheds, his spines go too.

    • The original premise for this episode involved Jake getting a pimple on the day of his school's pictures (with the "dragon molting cycle" aspect following intact), but was ultimately scrapped from the script due to its cliché nature.

    • Apparently Dragons shed their skin every 10 years but Jake is only 13 meaning he should have shed his skin when he was 10 unless he found out he was a dragon when he was 3.

      Reply: But remember, Jake got his dragon powers when he was 13 and this is his first time having Dragon Acne.

    • Jake: (Looking at his zit at the end of his nose) Stand back Gramps, I think this thing is gonna blow!
      Gramps: Do not worry young one, I am sure the blemish is just the beginning of your molting cycle. Now tell me again about the serpent you encountered.
      Jake: Let's had this freaky skull around it's neck and I HAVE A MOLTING CYCLE!!
      Fu: Oh sure. A Dragon sheds its skin every 10 years or so, didn't anyone ever tell yah?
      Jake: Uh, I think I'd remember having a discussion about my skin peeling off my body!

    • Jake: Guys, check it out! Operation Rose is officially a-go! One study date will lead to two. And before you know it, we'll be studying from the book of love!
      Spud: Ahh, the book of love. I know it well. (Turns head toward Stacey) HHEEYY THERE GIRLL!!! (Stacey shrieks and runs away) It's like I'm a rockstar!!!

    • Number 89: Ooh, someone's about to get a wicked hard smack down from the Huntsman. And her name rhymes with...smuntshurl.

    • (Rose aproaches Jake after he avoids her outside)
      Rose: Jake, I was calling you.
      Jake: Ohhhh, you were saying 'Jake?' I thought you were saying...uhhh...steak.
      Rose: Why would I be saying---Look I need to talk to you about--
      Jake: Now's not a good time, I need to go and find homes for...stray...pigeons (smacks himself) Stupid, stupid!

      Rotwood: Attention hoodlums! Since Mr. Ugenstien, your science teacher, is still recovering from last week's Bunsen-burner debacle, I have the distinct pleasure of handing out your assignments.(the entire class groans) Enough with your overlapping grumblings!!

    • Gramps: Hello Ladies, the water is F-I-N-E, Spelled Fine.

    • Trixie: Yeah, what's cracka-lacking, Jakey. Me and Spud here are to find a cure for your ill-ing skin once and for all.
      Spud: Totally! Because as co-founders of 100 Uses Cream Inc., we feel your complexion should resemble peaches and cream, not peaches and creamed corn.

    • Jake: So what should I wear, my red jacket? Or should I mix it up and wear my other red jacket?

    • Spud: Yikes bro. Sounds like Rose-o gave you-o the old heave ho.

      Rose: 88, 89, and I have to retrieve the skull from the serpent tonight at Central Park, but it's imapartive that Jake get there first and intercept it.
      Fu: (Unintersted) Okay I'll tell him as soon as I get up. Now if you excuse me I was about to get my groove on.

  • NOTES (16)


    • The plot of this episode is similar to the one from the Teen Titans episode "Transformation". A character going through some type of natural metamorphic cycle and being too ashamed to be seen by their friends. Only for them to revert back to normal at the end, after learning that their friends care about them, not their appearence.

    • Lao Shi said "ei yah" in surprise. Much like Uncle from "Jackie Chan Adventures". This is fitting because both Lao Shi and Uncle are chinese.

    • Jake having Dragon Acne is simular to how in Danny Phantom ghosts get Ecto Acne
