Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (5)

    • This episode contains the only line ever spoken by Rose's mom, whom appears in three episodes(Dreamscape, Homecoming, and Hong Kong Longs). Rose's dad never speaks a single line

    • On Grandpa's door it says Gramps instead of Lao Shi which is his name.

    • One of the doors in the dream corridor has the name "Alan Smithee" - which is an anagram of "The Alias Men" - the name used by directors who did not want their name attached to a movie for whatever reason.

    • A door seen in the dream corridor is labelled with the name "Nick Filippi". Nick Filippi is one of American Dragon's Season 2 directors.

    • Jake's locker has always opened on the right hinge but in this episode it opened on the left.

  • QUOTES (12)

    • Jake: Hey dad, what up mom. Can I get a side of bacon to go with my usual?
      Susan: You'll eat what I make you.
      Jake: (Looks down at the burnt toast) Dang, this toast is toast.

    • Spud: You saved Spudopolis!! And for that my friend, I'm proud to let you wear this badge. (Spud puts a badge on Jake's shirt that says: Jr. Spud Patrol)

    • Spud: Tallyho!! That's my catch phrase. Trust me, it'll catch on!

    • Spud: (looking at his dream world) Woah, I can't believe I don't remember any of this stuff, it's the coolest place I've ever seen!
      Butler: Welcome home, master Spud. Seems you have spotted the Spud signal. It appears a Chimera is terrorizing our fair city of Spudopolis.
      Spud: (Hugging the butler) Man I even get my own butler! Brief me, dude.

    • Spud: (on the phone) Yeah well not only do I dislike your tone, I dislike your new boyfriend! That's right I said it: he's nothing but a shifty, video game playing, slacker who rides around on his motor scooter looking for trouble...Alright but this conversation is not over Nanna!

    • (Jake and Rose are on a dream date in a hot air balloon)
      Jake: What's this?
      Rose: The Voyage Channel aired a special on hot air balloons, I kept flipping between that and America's Wackiest Home Videos.
      Jake: Isn't that the show where everyone's pants--
      (a pair of hands pulls down Jake's pants revealing his boxers; Rose crosses her arms and raises an eyebrow)
      Rose: Yeah that one.

    • Jake: (about the Dream Corridor) How do you even know about this place?
      Rose: I did some Dream Realm exploring back at the Huntsclan Academy. It was that or stay up late and chat with the other girls on how to get Dragon blood out of blouses.

    • Gramps: (after Jake tells him about the Chimera) Jake! You did what?! (shouts in Chinese) Of all the irresponsible things you've done! Have you learned nothing about cheating?
      Jake: Lets see: there was something about short cuts...the importance of friendship...lots of stuff about finding balance...Nothing specific to cheating comes to mind.

    • Jake: (to Rose; about the Chimera) The words "Jake" and "mistake" do not go together (pause) okay yeah in a rhyming kind of way but there's no way I let that thing out.
      Rose: Did you remember to close the door on the way out?

    • Rotwood: Mr. Long, today was the lastest example of your growing parade of tardies. Care to explain yourself?
      Jake: Well I--
      Rotwood: Silence! Although flunking you out of the 7th grade would please me more than alfalfin cuchen on a hot plate, the school board mandates I give repeat offenders one last chance to earn make-up credit. Very gracious of them, wouldn't you say?
      Jake: Umm...What the heck is an alfafinish--
      Rotwood: Silence! Your "make-up credit" will be an examine on one of the greatest scientific minds of all time.
      Jake: Okay which one?
      Rotwood: That little detail will remain in my noggin.
      Jake: What?! But I have to know what to study or how do you expect me to pass?!
      Rotwood: That's the thing Mr. Long: I don't.
      Jake: Aww ma---
      Rotwood: Silence! You say that "aww man" thing ever to much.

    • Rose: (to Jake; in a dream) My parents died right after I was born, so the Huntsman raised me. My earliest memory is me crying in my Hunts-crib for my Hunts-nanny to change my Hunts-diaper.

    • Rose: My parents didn't die. The Huntsclan took me from them. I have a family!

  • NOTES (16)


    • The idea of a realm with doorways into the minds of everyone, is similar to what was seen in the episode "Enter the Sandman" from the television show "The Life and Times of Juniper Lee".

    • This entire episode concept is simular to the 1999 movie "The Matrix." In both this episode and "The Matrix" while in the Dream Realm/Matrix you are put in a state of "sleep" and what ever happens inside this "dream world" effects you in the real world (e.g.--Spud was injured in a dream/if you die in the Matrix you die in the real world too).

    • "The Voyage Channel" and "America's Wackiest Home Videos" is an obvious spoof of of "The Travel Channel" and "America's Funniest Home Videos."

    • The story of several kids who have to enter the dream realm to fight an enemy who haunts peoples dreams is similar to the movie 'Nightmare on Elm Street'

    • Spud's Dream: Spud's dream was one large play off of Batman. Spud was the super hero, saving a city called Spudopolis (Gotham City), with the help of his SpudSignal (Bat signal), Spud Mobile (Batmobile) and butler (Alfred Pennyworth)

    • The woman who handed Mr. Rotwood his trophy was clearly supposed to be Marilyn Monroe.

    • The title could be a reference to the Xiaolin Showdown episode of the same name.

    • There is a 1984 movie called Dreamscape
