  • Wow, Linus, your skills are... weak.
  • I see a--a giant, chocolate chunk marshmallow cookie, with lots of warm milk.
  • My book of dreams! That's why everything's so messed up! He's changing it!
  • I wanted all of my dreams to come true. But I only dreamt for myself. I wanted to escape my real world when the world needed my help to make it a better place. Selfish dreams shouldn’t come true.
  • The following story is true. It might have started as a dream, but as we saw yesterday, when we make our dreams a reality, reality becomes a dream. Sharkboy lives his dream as King of the Ocean. Where he cares for all its creatures. He searches for his father's submarine, where there is no light, except in one place where light shines almost as bright as the sun. It's where Lavagirl lives her dream as queen of Earth's volcanoes that boil at the bottom of the sea. A force of life for all living things. Sharkboy and Lavagirl don't visit me anymore. But I can visit them in my dreams. So dream a better dream, then work to make it real.


  • I think you broke my fin.
  • [to Tobor] Am I king of the ocean or what? (Tobor: No. Sorry.)
  • Usually, if you snooze, you lose. With Max, you snooze, you win.
  • I'll rip his circuits to shreds!
  • Can't... fight... MY INSTINCTS!!!


  • I’m looking for Max.
  • We need your help, Max. Come with us.
  • Everything that is, or was, began with a dream.
  • Ew! Stick to rotten fish, please.
  • I'm fire. She's ice. We must be enemies.
  • I know I can be good. I can feel it. But everything I touch, I destroy. Why did you make me like that? I have more potential. (Max: I'm sure you do.) And why did you make us a team? We're nothing alike. When I'm near water, I fizzle out. When he's near heat, he shrivels. We're not compatible. [her hair starts to flame up] (Max:'s on fire.) Yeah. It does that.


  • Linus: Hand over the book, or you'll visit the dream world.
  • Mr. Electricidad: What I can't believe is you dreamt me as a big round bad guy! I'm not bad!
  • [Max had just imagined a banana split boat in the land of milk and cookies]
  • Sharkboy: You still hungry, Max? How about a knuckle sandwich?
  • Mr. Electricidad: [after Mr. Electric is destroyed] He's... unplugged!
  • Mr. Electric: "Watt's" up?


[In the classroom, Mr. Electricidad is looking at the weather outside]
Mr. Electricidad: Who knows where tornadoes come from? [Turns to the students, who are drawing something on their pages] Well, when cold air mixes with hot air, they can form a tornado, as the hot and cold chase each other around and around and around.
Marissa: [Draws something on her binder] I dreamt of a story kind of like Sharkboy and Lavagirl. Ice Girl and Dream Boy. Her powers come from her crystal heart.
Mr. Electricidad: [Closes Marissa's binder] No more fairy tales.
Student: [Shows a student her drawing] Pirahna Girl and Beluga Boy.
Student: [Shows a student his drawing] Plastic Boy and Metal Girl.
Student: [Shows a student his drawing] Barf Boy and Vomit Girl.
Mr. Electricidad: Does everyone hear me? I'm a teacher, right? Wrong, I'm an awakener. Only I'm finding it more and more difficult to keep my class awake. [Marissa sneezes] And no recess again for you today, Marissa, you have too many allergies. There are more boogers on your homework than there is homework.
Marissa: I'm just cold.
[Max walks into the classroom and approaches Marissa's table]
Max: I'll be happy to change places with you. It's a lot warmer back there in my spot.
Marissa: But I have to sit up front.
Max: [Looks up at the air vent on the ceiling] It's just that you're sitting right under the vent. [Marissa sneezes] And it's August and you're sneezing.
Marissa: You're gonna get me in trouble.
Mr. Electricidad: Max. [Max approaches Mr. Electricidad's desk] Are you, uh, trying to make real friends?
Max: Yeah, trying, like you taught me to.
Mr. Electricidad: That's good. Just not with my daughter, okay?
[Max turns to Marissa, who waves to him. Max turns to Mr. Electricidad.]
Max: No, it wasn't like that. It's just--
Mr. Electricidad: Sit down, Max.
[As Max walks to his table, Linus walks into the classroom and sits down on his table. Taking his backpack off and putting it down on the floor, Max goes over to Linus' table.]
Max: Give me back my journal.
Mr. Electricidad: Class has begun. Everyone in your seats.
Max: Linus took my journal!
Linus: I did not!
Mr. Electricidad: Minus! I mean, Linus, you get a minus for misconduct. Give Max back his journal. [Linus gives Max's dream journal to him; Max takes it and walks to his desk without saying "Thank you"] One more time, Linus, and we'll have to change your name to Minus.
Max: [sits at his desk, goes through his dream journal, shocked to see that Linus had ruined it after stealing it from him; furiously gets up] HE RUINED MY DREAM JOURNAL!
Linus: I did not! Mr. Electric, send him to the principal's office and have him EXPELLED!
[Max angrily throws his dream journal at Linus' head.]
Mr. Electricidad: You're in my class, not the other way around! I know everything, and you know nothing! [points to the clock] At the end of class, both of you report to the principal's office, with your parents!
[The wind blows open the windows; Mr. Electricidad closes them, but the wind blows open more windows; Linus picks up Max's dream journal and puts it in his pocket]
Mr. Electricidad: [Sees a tornado closing in] EVERYBODY DOWN! [Dives behind his desk]
[Sharkboy and Lavagirl burst through the windows and into the classroom; Max peeks his head out from under his desk and sees them]
Marissa: [Peeks her head out from under her table and looks at Sharkboy and Lavagirl; whispering] It's them!
[Mr. Electricidad peeks out from under his desk, Lavagirl turns her head at him, Mr. Electricidad ducks back under his table]
Lavagirl: I'm looking for Max.
[All the students point at Max's desk; the students' papers start setting on fire as Lavagirl walks over to Max's desk]
Linus: [Sees his paper on fire] She's hot.
[Sharkboy viciously shreds Linus' paper, snarling]
Lavagirl: [Reaches Max's desk and lifts it up, seeing Max lying down on the floor, curled up] We need your help, Max. Come with us.
Max: [Gets up from the floor and follows her as she sets his desk down] What do I have to do?
Lavagirl: Go with us to Planet Drool. We'll explain on the way.
Max: We're going to Planet Drool?
[Sharkboy uses his claws to scratch a diagram of the solar system and Planet Drool on the chalkboard. Mr. Electricidad sees Sharkboy scratching a diagram of the solar system and Planet Drool on the chalkboard. Sharkboy looks at Mr. Electricidad, who recoils.]
Lavagirl: It's my home planet. Just outside our solar system. You should know, Max. You made it up.
Max: [Looks at the students and then looks at Sharkboy and Lavagirl] I can't go with you.
Lavagirl: Why not?
Sharkboy: Because you're not real. Both of you are just a dream. [Closes his eyes] And when I open my eyes, you'll be gone.
[Sharkboy and Lavagirl look at each other; Max opens his eyes and sees that they're gone, but they both appear behind him.]
Lavagirl: We're still here, Max.
[Max jumps in fear.]
Sharkboy: If you wanna stop the darkness from destroying our worlds, come with us.
Mr. Electricidad: [Gets up] You better go with them.
Max: Okay. I'll go!
[Marissa claps her hands cheerfully; Max, Sharkboy, and Lavagirl run out of the classroom, with Mr. Electricidad, Linus, Marissa, and the students watching on. Mr. Electricidad turns to the students.]
Mr. Electricidad: Everyone follow me. We're gonna go find shelter.

Max: I've seen this before. It's on the tip of my…finger. It's a hand! It is a hand. A hand. Another hand.
Sharkboy: Yep.
Max: It's Tobor!
Lavagirl: Who?
Max: Tobor. I dreamt him up when I was a kid; A robot that could help me with my homework. I tried to build him once. Everyone kept telling me he would never work.
Sharkboy: So here he is, a forgotten dream in the Dream Graveyard.
Lavagirl: Maybe he can help us.
Max: He's supposed to be very smart. Tobor, awake!
Tobor: [awakens] Yes?
Max: He works! We can ask him anything now.
Lavagirl: Let me! Let me! Tell me something about me. I'm clueless.
Tobor: Actually, you are extremely bright.
Sharkboy: Am I king of the ocean, or what?
Tobor: No. Sorry.
Max: How do I save Planet Drool?
Tobor: The answer is in your dreams.
Sharkboy: [holding out a pipe to knock Max out] You mean if I put him to sleep, he'll dream us out of this mess?
Tobor: No. [Sharkboy hides pipe] At least, not here. Darkness is falling. Any dream of his would become a nightmare, and you don't want those becoming a reality. But if you go to the Land of Milk and Cookies...
Lavagirl: Of course.
Tobor: ...that's where the good dreams are. Where the answers are.
Lavagirl: It's perfect, Max. The Land of Milk and Cookies is a safe, sweet place. You'll be able to dream easily there.
Max: Can you take us?
Tobor: I have no body. I can't move.
Sharkboy: You move your eyes and your mouth.

Sharkboy: Max! Get down here!
[Sharkboy and Lavagirl are having difficulty controlling the Train of Thought]
Max: What's wrong?
Sharkboy: We can't control it!
Max: All you have to do is keep it track.
Sharkboy: How can you keep it on track if there is no track?
Max: [looks out; shocked] Uh-oh.
Sharkboy: Looks like another dream gone bad.
Lavagirl: [nervously] What do we do?
Sharkboy: [comedically calm] Yell? Scream?
[the Train of Thought horn honks, and Max, Sharkboy and Lavagirl scream in terror]
Lavagirl: [opens the front door] Jump. It'll be alright.
[Lavagirl, Sharkboy and Max jump out, one by one, then the Train of Thought crashes into ice cream, and the back falls off]
Max: What does it mean when your Train of Thought... wrecks?
Sharkboy: Well... [pats Max's shoulder] can't be good, buddy.
Lavagirl: How much do we have, Sharkboy?
Sharkboy: [checks his shark radar] 20 minutes. [steps in something, and takes a taste]
Lavagirl: [disgusted] Ew! Stick to rotten fish, please.
Sharkboy: [spits it out in disgust] Ugh! Chocolate! I stepped in chocolate!
[Max eats the chocolate]
Lavagirl: [happily] We're here. [the camera zooms out to reveal where they are] The Land of Milk and Cookies.
Sharkboy: [taking a short dive on a cookie] Whoo-hoo! Yeah! [puts his hand in the milk] The milk is warm. [shake his hand] He'll be out in no time.
Lavagirl: [to Max] Lay down. Here's a marshmallow pillow.
Sharkboy: How 'bout dreaming us into the Dream Lair?
Max: [wakes up uncomfortably] The ground is thumping too much.
Sharkboy: My highly trained ears hear it, too. [whispers] Boom, boom, boom!
Lavagirl: Let me hear it.
Sharkboy: [warningly] I wouldn't. [Lavagirl lays her head down on the marshmallow, and it turns burnt. She angrily looks at him, who looks away as if saying, "I warned ya."] Hothead.
Lavagirl: When you dreamt up these giant cookies, who did you expect to be able to eat them?
Max: I really didn't think about it.
Lavagirl: 'Cause if you dream giant cookies, something has to be created to consume giant cookies.
[Cookie giants, who look like Max's parents, appear from behind mountains.]
Sharkboy: [points upwards in alarm] Cookie giants!

Sharkboy: [while singing a lullaby to Max] ♪ Close your eyes, shut your mouth, dream a dream and get us out. ♪
♪ Dream, dream, dream, dream, dream, dream. ♪
♪ Hit the hay, fast asleep, dream a dream, you little bleep. ♪
♪ Dream, dream, dream, dream, dream, dream. ♪
[a floating Sharkbike appears]
Lavagirl: [happily] It's working! Keep it up, Sharkboy.
Sharkboy: [singing while dancing hip-hop style] ♪ Just relax, lay about, or my fist will put you out. ♪
♪ Dream, dream, dream, dream, dream, dream. ♪
♪ Take your time, but beware, there's darkness in the air. ♪
♪ Dream, dream, dream, dream, dream, dream. ♪
Lavagirl: Dream about me next, Max. I need to know who I am. Not just destruction or a simple flame. Dream of me as something good. [sees Darkness in the sky]
Sharkboy: [singing] ♪ Don't despair, step right up. Glass of water? Here's a cup. ♪
♪ Dream, dream, dream, dream, dream, dream. ♪
Lavagirl: He's having a nightmare! Wake up, Max! Wake up! Stop that racket, Sharkboy. You're giving him nightmares! [stands up; apologetically] Sorry, Max. [Her lava burns Max's rear.]
Max: [screams in pain and wakes up] Ow! Ohh! What was that for?!
Lavagirl: Your nightmare was about me, wasn't it?
Max: I don't remember. [smiles] But I did dream about one thing.
Sharkboy: [points upwards in alarm] Plughounds!

Sharkboy: [checking his radar, to Max eating some sugar] Sugar will give you nightmares.
Lavagirl: How much time do we have?
Sharkboy: Don't ask. [Max spits out the sugar] The Dream Lair's across the Ocean of Ice. We'll have to travel there by foot.
Lavagirl: What was it you saw in your dream, Max?
Max: [gets up] I saw an object shaped like-- Give me something to draw with.
[Lavagirl gives Max her finger and draws a shape of a heart]
Sharboy: The crystal heart! That's the treasure of the Land of Ice, in the ice castle. It can freeze anything, even time.
Max: I've always dreamt of freezing a moment in time.
Sharkboy: And the ice castle's ruled by the ice princess. I hear she's the most beautiful girl on the planet. [Lavagirl gets shocked to hearing that and angrily shoots a lava beam at his rear, burning him] OUCH!
Lavagirl: She is not! She's cold and cruel and cares for nobody but herself.
Sharkboy: She's just saying that, Max.
Max: You've met her?
Lavagirl: No, but I know we don't get along.
Sharkboy: How do you know that?
Lavagirl: I'm fire, she's ice. We must be enemies.
Max: We need that crystal heart. But I need you both to get it.
Lavagirl: I just hope this isn't a trap.
[The trio reach shore to a bridge to the ice castle]
Max: If we freeze time with the crystal heart, we'll be able to make it to the Dream Lair and save the planet.
Sharkboy: That's the plan. Behold the Ice Castle. Home to the princess of the Land of Ice.
Max: The crystal heart's inside the castle?
Sharkboy: So they say.

[As Lavagirl walks across the icy bridge while sleeping, Sharkboy and Max see the plughounds in the distance, coming towards them]
Max: They found us again! [starts to shout in alarm] LAVAGIRL!
Sharkboy: Shh! [quickly covers Max's mouth] If you wake her up, she'll reheat. She can make it. [after a short moment; loudly] LAVAGIRL, THEY'RE BEHIND YOU! [Max covers Sharkboy's mouth as he covers both his hands; Lavagirl wakes up and turns around, seeing the plughounds coming closer, turns back at the boys, growling angrily at them as her hair flames up bigger; The boys scream in horror at her and run to the end of the bridge to the Ice Castle; The icy bridge starts to collapse as Lavagirl runs furiously]

Sharkboy: [cracks his knuckles] Get ready for the ultimate power outage.
Mr. Electric: [chuckles sarcastically and flexes his muscles] And who are you to believe that you can defeat me now?
Sharkboy: No one special. Just... King of the Ocean. [Sharks cut ice that Mr. Electric is on, he falls in the water, and the sharks bite him.] Shark frenzy. [walks away]

Max: Don't smash people's dreams, Linus, because you'll smash your own as well, and you too will stop believing.
Lavagirl: [appearing out of nowhere] Max, I am light. Thank you.
Max: You were always that. It had nothing to do with me.
Lavagirl: But now I know. So, thank you.
Sharkboy: [appears behind Lavagirl] Okay. So, she's a light. Big deal. The real news is... what I am.
Lavagirl: [rhetorically] Annoying?
Sharkboy: [smugly] King of the Ocean.
Lavagirl: Thanks for saving me. [kisses Sharkboy on the cheek and he sizzles]
Sharkboy: [smiling a little painfully; embarrassed] Ouch.

Linus: [After Mr. Electric zaps his rear end, thus burning Max's Dream Journal. Pulls Dream Journal out of his back pocket] Sorry, Max. Your journal.
Max: It's okay. It was an accident. Plenty more dreams where those came from. [tosses burnt Dream Journal out of sight]
Mr. Electricidad: Okay, kids, who's next? Remember, there are no dumb ideas.
Linus: Maybe we can freeze his circuits.
Mr. Electricidad: That's the dumbest idea I've ever heard. We're in the middle of Texas in August! Next idea. Please, anyone but Linus.

[Last lines.]
Mr. Electricidad: Max, your report, please.
[Max goes in front of the class, and he waves at Marissa, who smiles and waves back.]
Max: The following story is true. It might have started as a dream, but as we saw yesterday, when we make our dreams a reality, reality becomes a dream. Sharkboy lives his dream as King of the Ocean, where he cares for all its creatures. He searches for his father's submarine, where there is no light, except in one place where light shines almost as bright as the sun. It's where Lavagirl lives her dream as queen of Earth's volcanoes that boil at the bottom of the sea. A force of life for all living things. Sharkboy and Lavagirl don't visit me anymore. [Sharkboy puts his arm around Lavagirl, but burns himself, so Sharkboy and Lavagirl touch each other's fingers.] But I can visit them in my dreams. So, dream a better dream, then work to make it real.
Tobor: [awakes] Yes?
