Doc: The dragon guarded the Golden Fleece day and night. He never even slept. When Jason found the cave, the dragon tried to scare him away with his fiery breath and scary roar. Jason wasn't scared. He sang a magic lullaby that made the dragon fall asleep. As the dragon slept, Jason took the fleece. So Jason went home, and the dragon lived happily ever after, because he could finally sleep, and not worry about guarding the fleece. The end.
Lambie: What a great job telling a story from Greek mythillagilla...
Doc: (Laughing) Greek mythology. It's a special kind of story that people started telling a long time ago.
Chilly: Well, whatever it's called, it was great. My favorite part is when you roar. Roar! But, you know, good, like you do it.
Doc: I hope I can roar that good tomorrow. I've never had to get up and tell a story in front of the whole class before.
Stuffy: Maybe we should practice it again.
Hallie: You two sugar cubes have practiced that presentation so much, when you do it at school tomorrow, it's gonna be easy-peasy stringy cheesy.
Lambie: (As Stuffy is purring) Just relax. Let the brush do the work.
Stuffy: (Even more purring) Ah, that feels good.
Stuffy: I can't believe tomorrow (muffled) is my first time in your class. (Normally) The first time that I... (Doc scrubs Stuffy's feet) ooh, ha ha! Tickly toes! (Doc giggles) Where was I? Oh, the first time the world will see my name in crayon! After this, I--
Dr. McStuffins: (Calling) Bedtime, Doc.
Stuffy: (Later) I won't just be a dragon anymore. I'll be Stuffy, star of elementary school presentations! Kids across the school will hear about me, but--(gasps) what if I mess up?
Doc: Stuffy, it's time to sleep.
Stuffy: But I'm not sleepy.
Doc: You've practiced your best, and you look your best. So all that's left is to sleep your best so you can do your best.
Stuffy: You're right. Need to sleep so I can do my best for Doc.
Hallie: Stuffy, hush.
Stuffy: (in a whisper voice) Oops, sorry. Goodnight Doc.
Hallie: I know what always helps me get sleepy. Countin' sheep.
Stuffy: Good idea. Hm. Uh... one. (Lambie screams and everyone wakes up)
Doc: Stuffy, I thought you were counting sheep.
Stuffy: I was, but I only got as far as one, because Lambie's the only sheep I know.
Lambie: No, you're not supposed to count real sheep. Counting sheep just means you close your eyes, picture sheep in your mind, and count them (angrily) until you get sleepy, like this. One, two... (Yawns and falls asleep)
Doc: Come on, Stuffy. If we don't get to sleep soon, we might be too tired for the presentation in the morning. Then I'll try to do my dragon roar, and it'll be, like... Roar! (Snores)
Stuffy: I'll never let that happen. How do I make sure that I never let that happen?
Doc: While you get sleepy, you can be super quiet so I can sleep.
Stuffy: Won't make a peep. Dragon's honor.
Doc: (sounding sleepy) Stuffy...
Stuffy: Oh, Doc, thank goodness you're here. Someone turned out the lights. Then I was attacked by these silky pajamas.
Doc: But why were you out here in the dollhouse? You should be in bed getting some sleep.
Stuffy: (sadly) Oh, Doc.
Stuffy: (after Doc sings "What's Going On) No matter how much I try, I just can't go to sleep tonight. That's why I was out in the dollhouse. I didn't wanna keep you awake while I was trying so hard not to be awake.
Doc: I think this snoozing trouble calls for a checkup. Come on, Hallie. Let's move our patient to the bathroom so the others can sleep.
Doc: How's your tummy feel?
Stuffy: Plushy. (Giggles) Soft. Like a nice breathable cotton blend.
Doc: (Giggles) No. How does it feel inside your tummy?
Stuffy: Oh, right. My tummy is a little tickly inside.
Doc: Anything else?
Stuffy: My brain keeps thinking about the presentation tomorrow. Every time I close my eyes, I imagine what it will be like with all those kids staring at me. Ooh! And thinking about that makes my tummy extra tickly.
Stuffy: (In the morning) Thanks for helping me get to sleep. I'm glad I can be your dragon co-star.
Doc: You're the best dragon actor I know.
