  • I will not lie: this is the saddest Am Drag episode. By the episodes end I was devastated.

    9.1
    I first started watching Am Drag as a "what the heck" and it was a guilty pleasure until I saw that Rose, the very girl that Jake fell in love with at first sight was his sworn mortal enemy Huntsgirl. And until this episode, I was dying to find out what would happen once they found out about each other, and I can say this did not disappoint and where the writers went from here in the story of Jake and Rose was pure genius.



    This is in my opinion the saddest episode of the show, in my opinion, probably sadder then Homecoming. I sat in my room, re-watching the flashback sequence, each time it would bring more and more tears to my eyes.moreless
  • Three cheers for the episode that got me hooked on the series!

    Jake finally finds out Rose's big secret: she's his mortal enemy. After denying it so many times, even refusing to believe his best friends, he found the undeniable truth in Rose/huntsgirl's birthmark. I thought Jake and Rose were over after seeing this. This episode is the best in season one, it even tops the also revealing episode, "The Hunted". It was so sad at the end. Spud was very funny for comedy relief. My and my sibling couldn't stop laughing at how he dreamed of marrying the ski lift. I hadn't noticed huntsgirl's birthmark being the same as Rose's (I didn't notice huntsgirl's mark at all until this ep) so I was just as blind as Jake up until then. If you want to know how Jake found out Rose's identity, then this is the ep for you. You've gotta see it. It will have you on the edge of your seat the whole time.moreless
  • Jake's school is going on a ski trip and Jake wants to tell Rose that he is really the american dragon.

    10
    When Jake's school goes on a ski trip Jake is determand to tell Rose that he is really a fire breathing dragon that saves magical creatures. Spud made this up

    You could send Rose a Valentine's card with a cute little puppy dog on it. And on the inside you could write a poem: "Roses are red, puppies' tails are waggin,' oh by the way, I'm a dragon"

    Also spud wants to take care of his fear of the ski lift.

    Trixie is roomed up w/Rose so Jake wants her to "talk girly w/her" *Qoute from the show* Trixie: Yo, Jake, girl-talk is not my scene. Trixie does not do the giggly-headed, nail-painting, hair-braiding, popcorn-nibbling, boy-liking flim-flam.

    Jake: I'll give you ten bucks.

    Trixie: Make it twenty and I'll tape record the home-girl snoring.

    Jake: Deal!



    But then huntsgirl showed up trying to get a yettie. She droped a ski pass and only people in Jake's school had them. the next day Rose was trying to get a new ski pass because she "lost hers". Trixie and Spud was putting the picture together that Rose was huntsgirl but Jake wouldn't belive them. Jake checked every room for the huntsgirl except Rose and Trixie's room so Jake thought that Trixie was huntsgirl.



    *Quote from show*



    Jake: (to Trixie) You know I checked every girl's room this week except yours, Huntsgirl!!

    (Spud gasps over-dramticly)

    Trixie: Okay, now you just buggin' boyfriend. If I was her I would have shut you down by now, you can't touch my ninja business. Jake dragon ups and find huntsgirl. A fight brakes out and Jake pins huntsgirl up to a tree w/ice and takes off her right glove and sees her dragon birthmark. Then snow starts coming down and rose falls off a ledge and Jake saves her.



    *Quote*



    Huntsgirl: Why did you save me? We're mortal enemies! Or did you forget?

    Jake: I wish I could.



    *Quote*



    Spud: Roses are red, Jake wants to hurl, because he just found out, that Rose is Huntsgirl.



    Now Jake has to end his relationship w/Rose. At least he thinks he do.



    At the end Spud is ob the ski lift.



    *quote*



    Spud: That's right, lifty. It's you and me, together forever. A match made in heav-ah!! (falls on the snow)

    Spud: Fine! But for the record, I broke up with you!moreless

  • This episode was great! The classification is exactly correct, This IS the reason I started watching The AmDrag!

    9.0
    This may not be the height of the American Dragon Franchise but it should be enough to hook any Fantasy Fiction or Drama Fan on this show for a long time. This episode was great! The classification is exactly correct, This IS the reason I started watching The AmDrag This was the first episode of American Dragon that made me think the show had a future and without it I may not have started watching the show as avidly as I do now.



    This episode had a good balance of everything. It mixed comedy in through Rootwood's many perils throughout the episode but kept us on the edge of our seats screaming at how stupid Jake was being as he refused to believe who the Huntsgirl really was.



    By the end of this episode Jake knows he can't be with Rose anymore, this evokes a deep emotional response from even the strongest-willed fans of the show.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (11)

    • Unless this episode takes place several months after Act 4, Scene 15 Rose should still have a cast on her leg.

    • When Spud and Trixie came down off the ski lift, wouldn't Rose be suspicious since they were Jake's friends.

    • When Jake saw Rose turning into Huntsgirl and he turned into a dragon, Jake's right foot, left toes of his dragon form appear to be red and then black at the same scene.

    • When Spud is first in the leprechaun costume the pants only go to his knees. But when he walks away, they are down to his feet.

    • Why would Professor Rotwood have shorts on in this episode? And in every other episode he is wearing pants. Wouldn't you wear pants on a ski trip? It is Because he's wearing leiderhosen, it's traditional, and I guess surprisingly warm.

    • Both Spud and Trixie say Jake's arch enemy is Huntsgirl, while we can obviously see in 'Dragon Summit' his arch enemy became the Dark Dragon.

    • Jake saw the Huntsgirl, turned into the dragon, and without taking any steps, took off. When Trixie and Spud came later, there were two sets of dragon footprints.

    • When Trixie, Spud, and Jake go out off Trixie's, after they just saw her what she was doing you can see that she just came out of room 219, but in the beginning it was 215.

    • The numbers on the dorm rooms keep changing throughout the episode.

    • When Professor Rootwood was hit by the snow ball he was wearing something to help him breath, but he was talking clearly.

    • Rose's birth mark keeps appearing and disappearing all though out this episode.

  • QUOTES (12)

    • Trixie: Yo, Jake, girl-talk is not my scene. Trixie does not do the giggly-headed, nail-painting, hair-braiding, popcorn-nibbling, boy-liking flim-flam.
      Jake: I'll give you ten bucks.
      Trixie: Make it twenty and I'll tape record the home-girl snoring.
      Jake: Deal!

    • Spud: (dressed as a leprechaun; walking around with knees) Oh, gosh be-gora! 'Tis a sad thing indeed to be a little lost leprechaun. I do hope a ninja huntress doesn't come upon me, don't cha know!
      Jake: Gotcha, Huntsgirl! (covers up Earl)
      Earl: Actually, its just Earl. (glances at Spud) Hey, are you a… leprechaun?
      Jake: You're just seeing things. It's one of the high stages of altitude sickness.
      Earl: Whoa, leprechauns rock. (poking Spud)

    • Jake: (to Trixie) You know I checked every girl's room this week except yours, Huntsgirl!!
      (Spud gasps over-dramticly)
      Trixie: Okay, now you just buggin' boyfriend. If I was her I would have shut you down by now, you can't touch my ninja business.

    • Trixie (after Jake goes out after Rose): Fine let him fend for himself in a blizzard with a ninja!
      Spud: I'm worried about him too.
      (Trixie's gaze softens)

    • Rotwood: (Suffering from various injuries) Don't worry about me. My Teutonic blood allows me to endure extremely high levels of pain. (Deliriously) What's that mother? The chickens are loose again...(Falls out of the window)

    • Spud: That's right, lifty. It's you and me, together forever. A match made in heav-ah!! (falls on the snow)
      Spud: Fine! But for the record, I broke up with you!

    • Spud: (dressed as a leprechaun) Umm, Jake. I feel the need to tell you that I'm a little disturbed by this plan.
      Trixie: I'm more disturbed that Jake not only owns a leprechaun costume, but brought it on a ski trip. What's with that?
      Jake: What? So I overpacked.

    • Spud: Roses are red, Jake wants to hurl, because he just found out, that Rose is Huntsgirl.

    • Spud: Roses are red, Spud is afraid. Trixie ticked off, Jake's getting slayed!

    • Spud: Roses are red, violets are blue, your arch enemy goes to school with you.

    • Huntsgirl: Why did you save me? We're mortal enemies! Or did you forget?
      Jake: I wish I could.

    • Spud: (to Jake) You could send Rose a Valentine's card with a cute little puppy dog on it. And on the inside you could write a poem: "Roses are red, puppies' tails are waggin,' oh by the way, I'm a dragon"

  • NOTES (6)

    • When Jake is fighting Huntsgirl then Spud and Trixie bodyslam her, Huntsgirl should know that the dragon is Jake because the dragon must go to the school and be friends with Spud and Trixie. Jake is the only person who goes to school and is friends with Spud and Trixie. She doesnt pick it up that its Jake which was kind of obvious.

    • Another Running Gag:
      Every scene in this episode shows Mr. Rotwood getting more and more hurt, to the point of an ambulance.

    • Running Gag: Spud makes up a "Roses are red" poem using different rhyming words; for example, "Roses are red, puppy tail's waggin'; by the way, I'm a dragon."

    • This episode breaks away from the villain/hero tradition. Usually the villain finds out who the hero is first.

    • This episode originally premiered as the conclusion of a six-hour American Dragon: Jake Long marathon, following episodes 1-11, which aired in production order (101-111) to prepare its audience.

    • Jake discovers Huntsgirl is really Rose.

  • ALLUSIONS (3)

    • Jake: "Yo baby. You're the wind beneath my wings."
      This is a song by Bette Midler.

    • Title: Terminator 2
      When Rose was doing pull-ups in her dorm room it looked a lot like a scene out of Terminator 2 when Sarha turn her bed on it's side and used the frame to do pull-ups. She was also wearing simular looking clothes.

    • Title: Beaches
      When Jake said to Rose/Huntsgirl that she was the wind benith my wings. It was off the song "Wind Benitt my Wings" from the 80's movie Beaches, song by Bett Midler.
