GRANDPA: Jake! Get back to work!
Aw, man.
Trixie, Spud, wait up!
Dude, we hit the skate park last night,
and I was talkin' to you, except
Wait a minute. You weren't there.
Sorry, guys. I had this, uh, thing.
Yeah, check it.
We was all psyched to do
some serious shreddin'.
Then outta nowhere, these fancy-pants
rich kids showed up and booted us out.
Yeah, yeah. They were all, "Get out!"
And we're all, "You get out!"
And then they were all,
"Our daddies own you," and then
What Spud's tryin' to say,
it's not a game. Uh-uh.
We gonna show them
who's runnin' that half pipe.
Now come on, let's roll.
Heh. Ah, man.
Hoo! This door is, like, broken.
Uh, one more time.
-Rally the troops. Come on. (GRUNTS)
-ROSE: Every word out of his mouth
is like a glimpse into his soul.
Ear of the Dragon.
GIRL: Yeah, he is pretty cute.
"Pretty cute"?
I just wanna wrap my arms around him.
Uh, hey, guys.
Rose. I, um
I sort of overheard your conversation,
but it's totally cool.
I feel exactly the same way.
Uh, you think Jeran MacArthur's cute, too?
For real! I always thought
Uh, I mean, uh, um, who Who?
Jaren MacArthur.
He sings that song
"Girl, Don't Be Trippin'."
He's playing Radio City tomorrow night.
Oh, right.
Well, yeah, you know,
what I meant to say was, um
Wanna see some cool skate moves?
-Yeah! Whoa!
-Mr. Long, might I have a word with you?
Jake Long, I don't like you.
Now do you want to know
why this is I don't like you?
Uh, 'cause my mack daddy moves are so fly?
No, no, no, no, no.
Because you have a bad attitude.
Serious respect issues
towards authority figures,
and to top it off, mediocre grades.
The grades aren't my fault.
I'd have more time to study
if I wasn't out every night
learning how to be a drag Racer.
"Drag racer"?
Yeah, you know, like go-karts?
Vroom, vroom, vroom.
Stop that! No more noises!
I think it's time I find out
more about you, Mr. Long.
Hey, no prob. Let's see.
I'm a Pisces. I dig extreme sports.
-I like girls.
-No, no, no more words.
Parent-teacher conference
tomorrow, 4:00 p.m.
I'll be looking forward to it.
-(IN GERMAN) Nein!
That was deliberate.
JAKE: I'm tellin' you, Gramps.
All this dragon stuff,
it's ruining my life.
I'm startin' to wish I could
pass the Dragon baton
to the next kid and be done with it.
Sorry, young one,
but the duties of the American Dragon
belong to you and only you.
Well, lately, being me
isn't all it's cracked up to be.
Speaking of Dragon duties,
Fu Dog performed a truth spell
on our goblin friend last night
and retrieved some
very useful information.
The Orb of Malorphus.
Is it, "A," a funky paperweight,
or "B," a great big ball of evil?
Ha! If you chose "B," kid, congrats.
You get the prize.
Seems Ralph here
is gonna be paid a hefty sum
to pick up the Orb from the Huntsman
and deliver it to
a goblin crime ring in Ohio.
Goblins gotta eat, too.
The Orb contains
highly concentrated dark magic.
In the wrong hands,
it could be very dangerous.
That is why you must intercept it.
Hey, don't even sweat it, G.
I'll just go full Dragon and let 'em know.
-Know what I'm sayin'? I'm the
It is best you do this mission
undercover as the goblin.
Uh-huh, and how is somethin' this handsome
gonna turn into somethin' that
Dragons have natural
shapeshifting ability.
Fu Dog will create a potion
which taps into that power.
Unicorn hoof clippings. Pow.
Ogre nose hairs. Bada-bing.
-Bottled troll belches.
Bingo. One shapeshiftin' smoothie
with wheat grass booster.
Come on, kid. Bottoms up.
(GULPS) Oh, Fu!
Ugh! That junk is nasty!
I'm gonna totally ralph!
Dudes, check me out!
I'm Ralph the Goblin!
Ralph is not that big through the hips.
Ha-ha! This rocks!
Hey, Fu, how long does
this shapeshifting mojo last?
A single serving gives you
24 hours of transformin' fun.
That's what I'm sayin'!
Meeting with Huntsclan is in one hour.
You should spend this time
practicing goblin voice.
Yeah, and I wouldn't recommend
goin' too crazy
with all the shapeshifting.
The more you use it,
the harder it is to control.
Wait. Are you saying
I can shapeshift into other people?
Check this.
The sparrow with the most patience
is more patient than
the one that's impatient.
(LAUGHING) You sound
just like the old man!
Hey, yo, forget about it!
I gotta go get me some dog biscuits
and give myself a flea bath.
Eh? I don't talk like that.
Jake, until the potion wears off,
you will not be able to use
any of your Dragon powers.
That is why you must
treat your mission very seriously.
It's cool, G.
"Serious" is my middle name.
Now brothers and sisters,
bust a move and bring on the Huntsclan!
It is time, Jake.
You must not keep the Huntsclan waiting.
Tsk. No worries, G.
Ralph the Goblin is in the heezy-bejeezy!
Yo, what's up, Huntsy?
Huntsgirl, you are looking fizzine.
HUNTSMAN: Goblin, we meet again.
Uh, yeah, that's right.
We, uh, met before
That one time at the place
near the thing with the people.
Ah. Good times.
Something about you seems different.
Ralph is, uh, trying
something new with his hair.
Highlights. Really brings out
Ralph's eyes, don't you think?
Now, about that Orb of Malorphus.
HUNTSMAN: Yes, about that.
There's been a change of plans.
Have mercy!
I received this message from my supplier.
It seems the Orb of Malorphus
has been temporarily held up.
Really? That's all?
I I I mean, this is unacceptable!
Ralph spits on your supplier!
HUNTSMAN: Meet us back at the troll
bridge tomorrow night at sundown.
We will have the orb then.
Guys, they totally bought it!
Did you see that?
This shapeshiftin' spell's outta control!
MOM: parent-teacher conference?
This totally tanks.
My notes from school always have
lots of stars and smiley faces. Wanna see?
No! Guys, you can't take
this note seriously.
It's from Mr. Rotwood.
He's, like, a total freak!
Well, young man, I would very much
like to, uh, meet this "freak"
and talk about your grades
which sure could use some improvement.
Ahh. That was one delicious cup
of oolong tea, let me tell ya.
Don't worry, Daddy.
I'll make you more tea 'cause I love you.
Why, thanks, Haley-hoo.
-You're a peach, honey.
-I know.
-What the
That is the 18th time that pesky
fire alarm has gone off this week!
Now, Jake, about your grades.
How can you expect me to be a dragon
and get good grades?
You don't even know what it's like
to have dragon powers.
True. It skipped my generation.
But powers or not,
we all have our own challenges.
We just have to face them head on.
(SIGHS) Okay, Mom.
MOM: Mmm.
Who says the head has to be mine?
Mr. And Mrs. Long,
your conference with Mr. Rotwood
has been changed from room 1A to room 1B.
He'll be with you in a moment.
-MOM: Thanks.
-Love the tie.
(IN JAKE'S VOICE) Oh, yeah.
This is gonna be good!
Where are those parents?
It's a pleasure to meet you,
Professor Rotwood.
Now, about Jake.
Oh, Jake! What a fine individual!
In all my days as an educator,
never have I come across
such a wicked, fresh genius!
Really? Well, that sure is not
what the other teachers have said.
Uh-huh, uh-huh,
and being such a complete weirdo,
I could never hope to be
as hip hoppin' and happenin' as he is.
Excuse me?
That's right!
I, Professor Rotwood,
am a big, old, nasty freak!
And you know what else?
I like to eat dog food
and dance the forbidden hula!
Aloha, whoo!
Okay, now, Jake was right.
That man is a wacko!
Tick-tock, tick-tock, Mrs. Long.
You are late.
Hmm, like mother, like son, huh?
Mr. Rotwood, I
Eh, eh, eh! Professor Rotwood.
I don't care if it's Wacko Rotwood!
You no-good player hater!
You're just jealous of my son
because he's got superfly
mack daddy moves and you don't!
If you know what's good for you,
you'll leave him alone
and move to some faraway country like
Good day, Mr. Rotwood.
-Uh, actually, it's professor
-I said, "Good day!"
Man, this is sweet!
GIRL: I am so bummed that
you can't go to the concert tonight.
ROSE: Oh, I know.
I've been so obsessing
over Jaren MacArthur lately,
I can't even think about other boys.
Girl, don't be trippin' ♪
In my mind, you're always flippin' ♪
With all your talk of ♪
Yeah, what's up, beautiful, yo?
(GASPS) Oh, my gosh!
It's pop sensation Jaren MacArthur!
That's right.
I was thinking me and you
could make some beautiful music together.
Yeah. I I mean, I love your music.
Oh, sing us one of your songs.
GIRL: Oh, yeah, totally!
I love you, Jaren!
But I don't know any of his
I mean, uh Hey, yo.
I don't have a guitar.
-Uh, but I don't, um
-This one goes out to Rose.
Rose, yo ♪
You have such awesome toes, Rose ♪
And a really hot nose ♪
Yo, and your forehead's
so shiny that it glows ♪
Rose! Yeah! ♪
Uh, well, uh, see y'all! Peace!
I still love you, Jaren!
TRIXIE: Yo, home slice!
How about sharin' this skate park
with the rest of us?
Sorry, kiddies.
But we paid the management good money
to close the half pipe
to everybody but us.
Come back tomorrow, okay?
Tomorrow? See, you're trippin'.
This is America.
And not just any America.
This is North America, buddy!
Yeah, and in North America, money talks.
Skate pro Tommy King.
Dude, what seems to be the problem-o?
Yo, Tommy King, peep, King,
wretch over there, snot for brains,
thinks he can
Oh, junk!
You know who you are?
Pro skating sensation,
and Sk8er-ade spokesman, Tommy King.
But your website says
you're on vacation in France.
Dudes, maybe this isn't North America.
Heh. My good friend Jake totally told me
some kids were giving you guys trouble.
So I hopped on a plane, and I was
Who said anything about trouble?
Any friends of Tommy's
are friends of ours.
TRIXIE: Whoo-hoo! Yeah!
This is rad!
Tommy, that's what's up!
Huh? Ahh! Whoa!
Uh, did you just see that?
See what?
Man, that last fall on the head
must've messed me up good.
Hey Hey guys, sorry I'm late.
Hush it! Excuses later.
Hurry and turn into the goblin.
The Huntsclan is waiting.
Heh. Hey, G. Don't even sweat it.
This ain't no Whoa! Thing.
I have a bad feeling Jake has
misused his shapeshifting powers.
Hmm, you think?
So, uh, I'm here to see
a clan about an orb.
The Orb of Malorphus as you've requested.
Hmm, let's see, uh,
round, dark, creepy glow. (CHUCKLES)
Looks good!
Now if you don't mind,
Ralph has to be some Huh?
-HUNTSGIRL: He's a fake!
HUNTSMAN: Seize him!
Tsk. Aw, man.
HUNTSGIRL: Had enough?
HUNTSMAN: Play time's over, boy.
HUNTSMAN: Then perhaps
this could be the American Dragon?
-Huntsclan, move out!
FU DOG: Aw, Gramps, we're too late!
Ah, let me guess. You've done this before.
HUNTSGIRL: Never to someone so cute.
But I'm not as cute as
that hunk-a hunk-a burning dragon
you fight against, am I right?
HUNTSMAN: Silence, boy. I have
no doubt you are the American Dragon.
I've been waiting for this moment
The chance to slay my first dragon
and become one of the Huntsclan.
HUNTSMAN: Patience.
His shape-shifting spell won't last.
I want him alive long enough
to see his true human face.
We got exactly one hour
before the spell wears off.
Until then, the kid's
completely defenseless.
The Huntsclan could have
transported him anywhere.
There's gotta be some way
to sniff him out.
Too bad I'm not a bloodhound.
RALPH: Why? Why did she do that?
Ralph does not think contestant
should have bid $1 on washer-dryer.
So you will set Ralph free
if he helps you sniff out your boy?
Yes. Only Jake was not Jake
when the Huntsclan took him.
He was pop sensation Jaren MacArthur.
FYI, his favorite food is fajitas
and he buys all his clothes
at Haberdashy and Flinch.
What? A 600-year-old dog
can't be hip to the new trends?
Eh, Ralph will help you,
but Ralph must first have a scent
from this pop sensation
before he can track him.
REPORTER: (ON TV) This just in.
A tub of hair gel and a pair
of extra, extra baggy jeans
have been reported stolen
from the dressing room
of pop sensation Jaren MacArthur.
Earlier, MacArthur had this to say.
Why, yo? Why?
No word yet as to whether
he will summon the courage
to take the stage tonight as scheduled.
I love you, Jaren!
Come on, dragon up.
Dragon up!
The identity of the American Dragon
shall be revealed.
-JAKE: No!
FU DOG: Okay, which one of you cheapos
forgot to pay the electric bill?
Oops, my bad.
Must've brushed against the light switch.
I hate it when that happens.
HUNTSMAN: The old dragon is mine!
You handle the boy!
Hey, hot stuff. Miss me?
HUNTSGIRL: I liked you better tied up.
I bet you say that to all the dragons.
-HUNTSGIRL: Whoa! Oof!
Ooh, baby! It's good to be me!
You'll make a fine trophy, Dragon.
What? Aah!
GRANDPA: Aiya! The orb!
Kid! Belly slide!
Right on!
He slides
Whoo! The catch is made
and the crowd goes Oh!
GRANDPA: Oof! Aah!
HUNTSGIRL: Huntsmaster, hurry!
The whole place is going to
HUNTSMAN: I'm not leaving until
this dragon is slain.
Think again, huntsfreak!
Gramps, heads up!
Good one, kid!
Now, let's get the heck out of here!
Excellent work, young one.
Now that was glamorous. Huh? Huh?
JAKE: So the Orb is locked up at the shop?
Safe and sound.
Now you will have time
to focus on your grades.
(SIGHS) You sound like Mom and Dad.
Jake, your mother and I know
you have many responsibilities.
All we ask is that you try your best
and are honest in your actions.
Thanks, Gramps.
Well, this is my exit.
So you are certain you did not misuse
your shapeshifting power?
Not even once?
(SCOFFS) No way, G. Come on!
Like I would ever disobey you.
-I'm reporting you to the school board!
-Not if I report you first!
Pop sensation Jaren MacArthur
was right here on campus.
Hey, Jake! Why you didn't tell us
you was down with skater Tommy King?
I'm pretty busted, huh?
You do not know the meaning of the word!
JAKE: Aw, man!
