Directed by Robert Rodriguez. Written by Robert Rodriguez and Marcel Rodriguez.




  • Hot lava... Hot lava... [Lavagirl starts melting, turning into lava].
  • Everything that is or was began with a dream.
  • Row, row, row your banana split-boat, gently down the stream of consciousness, merrily, merrily, merrily, life is Max's dream.
  • [after accidentally burning Max's dream journal, she lashes out at him] WHY DID YOU MAKE ME OUT OF LAVA?! WHY, MAX?!


  • Sharkboy: Usually, if you snooze, you lose. With Max, you snooze, you win.
  • 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?


Linus: [after Mr. Electric zaps Linus' 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.

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.
Lavagirl: 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] Sorry, Max. [Her lava burns Max's rear.]
Max: [screams in pain and wakes up] Ow! Ohh! What was that for?!
Lavagirl: You're nightmare was about me, wasn't it?
Max: I don't remember. [smiles] But I did dream about one thing.
Sharkboy: [points up in alarm] Plughounds!

Sharkboy: Max! Get down here!
[Sharkboy and Lavagirl are having a hard time 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 the windshield]
Max: [shocked] Uh-oh.
Sharkboy: Looks like another dream gone bad.
Lavagirl: [nervously] What do we do?
Sharkboy: [flatly calm] Yell… scream…?
[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] 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. Lavagirl angrily looks at Sharkboy, 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: Cookie giants!

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.

Max: [to Linus] 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 does, Max snatches it from him.] One more time, Linus, and we'll change your name to Minus.
'Max: [looks at his pages marked by Linus, then angrily stands up] He ruined my dream journal!
Linus: [defensively] I did not! Mr. Electric, send him to the principal's office and have him expelled!
[Max angrily throws his dream journal at Linus and it hits him in the head]
Mr. Electricidad: [angrily] You're in my class, not the other way around! I know everything and you...know nothing. [Points his finger at the clock.] At the end of class, both of you report to the principal's office... with your parents!

[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. 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?
