Episode Summary

It Happened One Nightmare / Staying Within the Lines
"It Happened One Nightmare"

Ord kept Zak, Wheezie, and Cassie up all night because of a nightmare, leaving them extremely tired. But Ord is afraid to go back to sleep because of the nightmare he had, which he thinks he'll have again. Can Max, Emmy, and the rest of the dragons help him?

"Staying Within the Lines"

The rain washed all of the color away in Dragon Land, so everyone has to color everything back in with crayons. Max is eager to help, but his scribbling keeps messing everything up. Can everyone find the right coloring job for Max?moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (14)

    • Emmy: If you color his face wrong, Max, the giant might get really mad!
      Zak: (frantic) And he'll stomp us and turn us into dragon jam and- (Wheezie covers his mouth)
      Ord: What do we do?

    • Zak: Wheezie, did you leave the water running in the bathroom again?
      Wheezie: Nuh-uh. Nope.
      Zak: In that case... Flood! Head for the hills!

    • Ord: I wonder what a freshly painted apple tastes like. (paints apple red, then eats it) Mmm... tastes... red!

    • Cassie: Now what happened, Ord?
      Ord: I started to have my bad dream again.
      Max: What's the dream about?
      Zak: No! Don't tell us! I don't wanna hear it because then I'll have the bad dream. (covers ears, shouts loudly) Blah, blah!! 1, 2, 3!! Blah, blah, blah!!!

    • Ord: (to everyone) Are you asleep? Are you asleep? (loudly) Are you asleep?!
      Zak: (annoyed) Not now!

    • Wheezie: Did someone say fun? Fun just happens to be our middle name!
      Zak: No it's not. It's Fleemofloober... or is it Flumobleebber?
      Wheezie: (not paying attention to Zak) Yeah, whatever.

    • Cassie: Rosie-poos are red.
      Zak: Kunckerholes are...
      Zak and Wheezie: Red, yellow, green and blue!
      Max: I like coloring!
      Giant: Me, too!

    • Giant: (to Max) You... you gave me hair and... and a beard!
      Zak: (frantic) Oh, great! He didn't have any hair! He hates hair! Now we're double-doomed! (squeezes Wheezie's neck tightly, Wheezie's eyes bug out)
      Giant: I can't remember the last time I had hair! I have hair! I have a beard! Thank you! Thank you! (laughs)
      Zak: I told you he loves hair!

    • Giant: (to Wheezie) Hey! I'm a giant, not a rainbow.

    • Zak: You color him in, Wheezie. I'm allergic to smelly feet.

    • Wheezie: Ooooh, I love coloring! It's so... colorful!

    • Wheezie: No color? Hate it!
      Zak: Neat and clean. Love it! Why mess it up by coloring it?
      Everyone: Zak!

    • Max: Wow! It looks like a giant coloring book!
      Emmy: Yeah! Before it's been colored!

    • Quetzal: Careful, niños. There's a giant sleeping in the Stickleback Mountains. If he's awakened, he can be very grumpy.

  • NOTES (9)

    • "It Happened One Nightmare" is one of the few stories that do not show Max and Emmy returning to the playroom.

    • Cassie's ability to go on slumber parties must've imporved a lot since #10702 - "The Big Sleepover." In "The Big Sleepover", Cassie did not stay overnight at Zak and Wheezie's place. But judging from her actions in "It Happened One Nightmare," she did stay overnight at Ord's slumber party.

    • The sun must not be what's providing heat for Dragon Land. Emmy and Cassie go up and paint it in "Staying Within the Lines" without being crispified.

    • The Arthur show also had an episode about nightmares. That episode also deals with fear of embarrassment.

    • "Staying Within the Lines" is the last of five episodes on the fifth "Dragon Tales" DVD.

    • During Friendship Week, "Staying Within the Lines" airs with "The Greatest Show in Dragon Land" as the second half of episode #113W. The Dragon Tune for that episode is "Round & Round."

    • During Ord Week, "It Happened One Nigtmare" airs with "Ord's Unhappy Birthday" as the second half of #108W.

    • Dragon Tunes: "Hum"

    • Cassie shrinks in "Staying Within the Lines," and Ord becomes invisible. This happens sometimes when they're afraid or upset.
