Lost my train of thought.

No dreaming. Got it.

I'll try harder.

What do you have there?

It's my dream journal.

It has all of my most

precious dreams in it.

I'll never part with it

for as long as I live.

You're a good kid, Max.


Let's be imaginary friends.

You can try and hang with us...

and we'll pretend you don't exist!

Check it out.

Sharkboy gets shocked by electric eels,

and then they feed on his cooked flesh.

Wow, Linus.

Your skills are... weak.


I'm gonna burst your bubble, Dream Boy.

You're dead!

Get the book!

Give me the book.

Hand over the book,

or you'll visit the dream world!



All right! Got it!

I'll bring you a revised edition tomorrow.

- Max, wake up!

- Dream, Max.

- Open your eyes, Max. - Eyes

open, and dream. Stay dreaming.

Wake up!


And Lavagirl!



My cookies! My giant cookies!

What are you doing baking sweets? You

know what happens when he eats sugar.

I baked them for his class.

So you could make friends at school,

and now you've eaten all of them.

No, it was Sharkboy and Lavagirl!

Look - this one has shark bites,

and this one is singed.

There's no such thing

as Sharkboy and Lavagirl.

Well, I believe him.

Your mother's right. When you go to sleep

and close your eyes, they may come back.

But when you open 'em again, Sharkgirl

and Lavaboy'll be... outta here.

- But...

- Shh. Mouth closed, eyes closed.

- Now?

- Yes, now.

You can wait till you're in bed

to close your eyes, Max.

Kids need their dreams.

Kids... need to grow up!

He's not making any friends

with these cookies!

There's no such thing

as Sharkboy and Lavagirl.

There's no such thing

as Sharkboy and Lavagirl.

Yes, there is.

Stupid plugs!

Please don't let me have to go to school.

They'll make fun of me, I know it!
