Episode Summary

EDIT
Nocturne, the ghost of dreams, puts everyone in Amity Park to sleep. Danny must defeat this evil ghost who uses people's dreams to make himself more powerful. To make things more interesting, Sam and Danny get stuck in a dream where their friendship is more than "just friends". Despite this, Danny must defeat Nocturne, who seems invincible against Danny's attacks. The only way to beat the king of dreams is for Danny to find a way into the dream world, or risk having Amity Park dream into a world of nightmares!moreless

  • One of the cooler episodes of season 3

    Nocturne a ghost of sleep and self proclaimed King of Dreams uses the energy of dreams to make himself more powerful. He and his sleepwalker minions then put pretty much all of Amity Park (and possibly other nearby communities) asleep. Danny needs to not only disrupt Nocturne dream and sleep, he also must wake up the rest of Team Phantom by turning their dreams into nightmares (with some rather comic reactions). Definitely some character revelations and action along with humor. Although I could care less for the whole Danny and Sam starting to have feelings for another.moreless

    It is the best of them all. Finally Danny are realising Sam`s true emotion fore him and understand that they are equal to his own meaning about her.



    Now we know that if a ghost overshadows one when they sleeps they will enter their dreams, which is usefull because it makes Danny realise his friends true meaning about him. He learn that Sam loves him and in his best friend Tucker´s dream, he is NOT his friend but his JANITOR.



    Sam proberly just guested Tucker`s dream, but he did derseves it, beacuse if his dream is that his best friend shall work for him.



    In otherwords perfect in any waymoreless

    Great episode! Starts off like a very weird episode. Ok, Danny gets an A on a Social Studies or Science test, Danny's a football star Danny's popular and everyone knows he's Danny Phantom. And he and Sam are boyfriend and girlfriend. We find out it's just a deranged dream of Danny's. He's, for some reason unknown to him, in the Ghost Zone.



    When he gets to Amity Park, he finds everyone asleep. He automatically assumes that Vlad is behind this, but he is also asleep. He goes to Tucker's room, where the sleeping beauty is. Danny checks Tuck's computer to find out why everyone is asleep, he only finds a dark figure looming over Tucker. Danny then has a flash back of the same figure looming over him saying " Goodnight, Ghost boy. " or something like that.



    Danny finds out he can go into people's dreams by overshadowing someone. He goes into Tucker's dream, seeing Tucker acting like he's super rich, has two Star's next to him and has Danny as a janitor. He wakes Tuck up by replacing one of the Star's that he's about to kiss,Tucker then wakes up after Danny says he doesn't do windows. They then go to Sam's house to wake her up, her dream is like a continuation of Danny's dream, where he Finally finds out Sam like him more then a friend, ( I think. )



    After they wake up Jazz, they face the guy that we saw earlier, Nocturne. He's the second most dangerous villain of Danny, and he gets his power from dreams. He decides to power himself up by putting him in a pod like thing and goes to sleep. To stop him Danny, with Sam, goes inside his dream to defeat him while Tucker and Jazz try to power down the factory he's sleeping in. in the end, Nocturne's defeated and everyone wakes up. this episode shows hints that Danny and Sam love each other.moreless

  • One of the best episodes of the series.

    8.5
    From the first episode of Mystery meat, Danny Phantom has evolved and matured. This episode is definitely one of the best episodes. It's almost as if Butch Hartman is pushing Danny to his full potential just before the series ends. The Danny and Sam romance continues, and they even fight along side each other. A few humorous scenes are thrown in as well to keep the show a Nick classic. A peek into everyone's dreams also gives some character development. And as Danny has another classic fight with a seemingly unstoppable ghost, only to save the day triumphantly, viewers are reminded why this show is so amazing. All in all, a series classic!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (6)

    • Look Hard: During the flashback of Nocturne sending Danny into the Ghost Zone, his goatee is black, & does not reach the bottom of his chin.

    • After Danny sucks the Fright Knight into his thermos, he puts his thermos onto a sash and flies back towards the school. After he phases through the wall, neither the thermos or the sash is with him anymore.

    • When Danny entered Sam's dream and overshadowed Dash, he was still in ghost form. That way, he couldn't have transformed Dash into "Dash Phantom", because if he had transformed while in Dash's body, it would've had to be back into a human.

    • The surveillance cameras indicate Jack and Maddie were put to sleep at the refrigerator and in the lab, but when Danny went to check on them, they were in bed.

    • When Danny first checked up on Jazz, she was in her bed, but when Danny, Sam, and Tucker come back to wake her up, she is asleep on her desk.

    • Fentonworks has security cameras all over the place, yet Maddie and Jack don't know Danny is half ghost. How is this possible?

    • Nocturne: Time's up, Danny Phantom. I promise your sleep will be much deeper this time. And by deeper, I mean... permanent nap time.
      Danny: Must be nice to have others to fight your battles, not so nice though when they lose. (Freezes the sleep walkers and then shatters them) Time to hibernate!

    • (In Danny's dream)
      Dash: It must be nice, Fenton, being a superhero and having the girls all lovesick for ya.
      Tucker: Sounds like someone's tired of taking his cousin to all the dances!
      Dash: (Annoyed) She's my mom's sister's stepdaughter!

    • (Danny zaps Nocturne)
      Danny: That'll teach you to steal people's dreams.
      Nocturne: "Steal" is such an ugly word. I prefer the term "harvest".

    • (After Danny overshadowes Jazz to wake her up)
      Tucker: (To Sam) So, what were you dreaming about?
      Sam: Oh, you know, nothing specific. I was just sharing a glass of chocolate milk with two friends who looked just like Star!
      Tucker: Hey, that's what I- Oh, Danny told you my dream, didn't he? (To himself) I'm pretty sure that violates the dude code.

    • (In Tucker's dream) Tucker: That will be all Fenton. Dream Danny: Yes sir. Real Danny: Wait! I'm the janitor?! Tucker: Now for some ambiance. Danny: I hate to cramp your style dude, actually, no I don't. Tucker: (Kissing Star's hand in his dream when Danny taps his shoulder) I can't neglect you my pet. (He turns and sees Danny) Danny: Seriously, I'm your janitor?! Tucker: AUGHHH! (Tucker wakes up, his helmet busts and Danny flies out of Tucker) Ah man! I just had the worse nightmare! Danny: Actually, you're now in a worse one. Come on, we gotta free Sam... And just so you know, I don't do windows!

    • (In Sam's dream)
      Danny: The cafeteria? Come on Sam, I expected bigger dreams from...
      Sam: (To Dream Danny) Can you make room for your girlfriend?
      Danny: Girlfriend? Her dream is just like mine. Uh, her dream is just like mine!

    • (In Nocturne's dream)
      Nocturne: The ghost boy and his girlfriend, once again together in dreamland.

    • (In Nocturne's dream where he is a powerful ruler)
      Danny: You got to hand it to the guy, he's got a vision.

    • Danny: Okay, how do I remove that headset without lighting myself up like a christmas tree?

    • Danny: Wait a minute, something obviously woke me up and knocked this thing off me, the question is what?
      (Danny thinks back to his dream where Danny and Sam almost kiss)
      Danny: Woah! Yeah, that would do it!

    • Danny: That's all you do? Put people to sleep? Are you sure your not a teacher?

    • Danny: Why are dreams so important?
      Nocturn: Ask the ghost boy who dreams of the goth girl

    • Jazz:(After Danny and Sam go to fight Nocturne inside his dream.) Wow...Those two are really.

    • Danny:(Talking to the sleepwalkers)Hey guys. Love your induviduality!

  • NOTES (20)

  • ALLUSIONS (3)

    • Danny: (Slip inside people's dreams)
      This is just like the Spongebob Squarepants episode Sleepy Time how Spongbob went inside people's dreams. He just had to slip inside them.

    • Danny saving Sam: Dialogue

      When Danny catches Sam after the Sleepwalkers drop her, he asks her if she is okay and when she says yes, Danny says cool and flies off. This scene is similar to Spiderman 3 where Spiderman caught Mary Jane when she fell from the web. Spiderman asked her if she was okay and when she said yes, he says okay and takes off.

    • Sleepwalkers: Name and Mission
      Nocturne's minions, the Sleepwalkers, share the name of a race of otherworldly beings also known as Sleepwalkers in Marvel Comics.
