Fu Dog: Hey there, kids. If you haven't guessed by now, this is the American Dragon Hokey Holiday Special. Like all holiday specials, it's about family, togetherness—blah, blah, blah and all that other sappy garbage. Alright, let's get on with the main titles before I hurl egg nog all over the snow right here.
#88 and #89 trying to decide whether they should get The Huntsman an easy bake oven or a stuffed potato as a Christmas present.
This from "Eye of the Beholder"
Fu Dog: Hey Carol, you wanna shake those things my way?
"Thanks, and enjoy the cupcakes. *grabs couple and pulls them toward him* But don't just enjoy the cupcakes, enjoy each other! 'Cause mortal enemies or not, you never know when you're going to be ripped apart by the hands of fate never to see each other again! Come back soon, you hear?"
Also, how he dealt with her disappearance:
first he barged in the house he knew she used to live in, convinced the Huntsman was keeping her there prisoner... And had to ask to the speechless family now living there if the "evil Huntsclan" had left a forward address;
then he tried his hand at pathetic hipster poems;
finally, he retired to a monastery with Spud to give up girls, but was booted out when the monks noticed the dozens of pictures of Rose in his cell. And Spud protested because he had already shaved his hair in a tonsure.
How did Brad react to the girl at the kissing boot consuming a cupcake with Krylock venom and becoming an half Krylock with a Xenomorph-like second mouth? "Jackpot!" He then enjoyed having his head sucked by the second mouth.
Also, Rose's accidental Double Entendres about the kiss scene. Especially the first one.
"It's not just a kiss, Jake. It's what represents, the totally intense connection between them. It doesn't just happen! It happens because they're ready to completely surrender to each other! So, are you ready?"
And the Huntsman cockblocking Jake. Completely by accident.
They finally go at Trixie's home. With Trixie's annoying grandmother getting in the way... And the magical scarab showing up, thus assassinating this last attempt at rehearsing by forcing them to exchange excuses to go out and beat each other up.
And right before the scarab showed up, a moment that, while funny, becomes much funnier later: Rose saying they were having trouble because, differently from Antony and Cleopatra, they hadn't been through anything together.
The punchline of the episode? Jake and Rose successfully return in time for the play, but Rose was injured and can't act, meaning that Jake has to kiss Spud. Who, in the meantime, had acted as both Antony and Cleopatra (with Trixie briefly taking over as Cleo).
Also, Trixie as Cleopatra. Without knowing a line. She was quickly pulled out by the same teacher who had forced her on the stage, but the public adhored her.
All of "Fu Takes a Walk". Highlights include the flashback of how the last time he took a walk alone ended (held at gunpoint by the police while having a boa constrictor on his shoulders) and needing an English/Dog dictionary to speak to normal dog (by the way, he failed).
Spud's attempt at defying Sara's prophecy he'd spill chocolate milk to prove their prophecies weren't always accurate: he left the mess hall and went out of the school, away from their chocolate milk... Then tripped and caused a truck to capsize and spill all the chocolate milk it was carrying. Even Sara was caught by surprise from how it happened...
Spud's attempts at wooing the skiliftnote When Trixie asked the contex, Jake explained that Spud is terrified by the skilift due having always failed at sitting on it, complete with Imagine Spot of them dating, marrying, and having skilift-human hybrid children;
Rose's WTF face when Trixie (who is rooming with her) cheerfully announces they'll do girl-talk (she had been bribed by Jake);
once he found out that Huntsgirl is on the ski trip, Jake decided to bait her... And had Spud wearing the leprechaun costume he brought on the ski trip (Jake loves being prepared). Following attempts are even more ridiculous;
Rose accidentally dropping hints of her Secret Identity (one of which was reflexively throwing into Rotwood a guy who bumped her) and Jake's denial (including accusing Trixie of being Huntsgirl when she said on his face that Rose was).
From "The Academy", Spud working to break through the Huntsclan teleportation signal... And Fu's face when he does in five seconds what the Dragons have failed at for hundreds of years. First time he gets it wrong and accidentally summons the Octo-Puss (number 8 of the Top 13 Threats to the Magical Community), but after sending it back they get #88 and #89. They're captured so easily that Jake and his grandfather are embarrassed...
Jake and Spud infiltrate the academy. Cue lesson "Dragon Slaying 101" in which Spud adds to the teachers' explanation on how you identify dragons that you can do it also from their funny haircuts (admittedly, the ones he met do have strange haircuts...).
Same lesson: Jake getting drafted to play the dragon in a demonstration. Given by Rose (who has no idea of who he is, thus the first thing she does is throwing him around to show why you should never lower your guard).
Spud and Jake were forced to fight a Krakenfor failing the chemistry test. Not for blowing up the lab (at least that's the impression the teacher gives). Oh, and the one (literally) kicking them in the arena is the Huntsman in person! At least Spud became an hero when he appeared to have tied up the monster...
They needed a distraction to get in the computer room from the dance. Rose, after saying it's a school like any other, whispers something in the ear of a random student, and, some gossip later:
One of Spud's dates: "You said what about me?!"
*Spud's dates try and kill each other again, and accidentally knocks out the Huntsman when he tries to break up the fight*
From "Family Business", Jake realizing he was in a dream, and thus letting himself getting photographed while in his boxers, and then realizing that, after all, it wasn't.
In his youth, Lao Shi was a pin-up model. Cue squicked faces from Jake and Fu.
Jake putting Lao Shi's profile on a magical dating website. Doesn't seem funny... Then you see the less scary 'girl' to show up was the one with two heads who got in a catfight, and understand why Jake was laughing himself silly at the result.
And then, the payback: Lao Shi started dating principal Derceto, and they used him as a messenger of gifts and poems.
Jake's main suspect for the Kelpie's cover was revealed as one of the mermaid detectives hunting it down. So, what was the Kelpie masquerading as? The poodle that was dating Fu.
Spud confronting the Kelpie in a mermaid (sorry, merman) costume.
Spud: "Feel my mighty tail!"
*Spud weakly slaps the Kelpie's leg with the costume's tail, with the Kelpie and Trixie silently wondering how much stupider Spud could get*
Rose *frustrated with the Huntsman's close watch on her*: "I'd spend time together right now, but it's just too risky! If I need to see you, maybe I should just use my dream charm to talk to you in your dreams like before."
Jake: "What's the worse that can happen when we're together? It's not like the Huntsclan will just come charging out of the-"
*Huntsboys #88 and #89 comes charging and screaming out of the blue while chased by the Aztec Guardian Serpent, stop to tease Rose for her date, notices the Aztec Guardian Serpent is still there, and resume running*
Rose getting into Fu's dreams to pass a message to Jake (who didn't want to be seen during his moulting) and then waking him up.
The Reveal of how ##88 and #89 were taken as apprentices by the Huntsman: he confused their scores at a video game for their results in hunting magical creatures.
In "The Doppelganger Gang", Jake's first attempts at the Doppelganger technique: the first time, instructed to let his energy flow out, he makes a flaming burp; the second time he produces a doppelganger of his human form that starts making martial arts moves in his boxers. At the sight of the latter, the group of troll Jake was supposed to defeat to save a unicorn and the unicorn started laughing themselves silly...
At the end, Jake has managed to (barely) solve the enormous schedule conflict that prompted him to create a number of Doppelganger and nearly get absorbed and killed by Yang Jake, the one who came out evil. But how can he assist Trixie in her contest when he's supposed to look after Haley? When she asks him, he replies he called in a favor... Cue Gilligan Cut to Fu Dog in a drag playing ladies with Haley.
In "Fool's Gold" Jake is making a pretty penny running errands for a leprechaun, who, when he's doing a delivery, warns him to show up in human form, as dragons make the buyer "uneasy".
Jake: "Uneasy? Who's the buyer, the Huntsman?"
*The Huntsman calmly walks out of a bush to get the package and announces he is.*
Later in the same episode, the Huntsman and a few dozens apprentice-level members' Mass "Oh, Crap!" when they see Jake and Lao Shi paying a clan of Hobgoblin, a few trolls and a giant to fight them and outbid the Huntsman by adding two golden motorcicles to the leprechaun gold.
