** Well, logically, they'd either disappear (if nobody could find them) or turn up dead (assuming someone could return the body to the human world).
* FridgeLogic:
** The four main Dragon characters are implied to have parents, who, if they show up, are shown to be much larger than them, and yet, Quetzal, a dragon much older than the four, is only about two feet taller than Ord. Ummmm....
*** Miniature senior citizen?
*** Or it could be part of Quetzal's Stealth Mentor gig. He probably intentionally represents himself as smaller than he is in order to better relate to the children as a guide so they don't treat him as a parent.
*** It may also be because Quetzal is a teacher for young children. Ever notice how human teachers will try to get down to their students' level when possible. This might just be the fantastic equivalent, especially since we see the child dragons being able to alter their shape if they're the same basic type of dragon as Quetzal (single head) so it might be a racial skill.
** How come Cassie and even Quetzal didn't immediately recognize that Poozie the Caterpoozle was just in a cocoon and not actually dead in "Goodbye Little Caterpoozle"? Max, Emmy, Ord, Zak, and Wheezie, I can understand since they aren't so knowledgeable about that sort of thing. But Cassie and Quetzal are consistently portrayed as the smartest characters in the show. You'd think they'd know something like this!
*** While Cassie is pretty smart, she still has a lot to learn. Quetzal, by comparison, was a case of PoorCommunicationKills. He didn't arrive on the scene until after the cocoon had been wrapped in a leaf, and nobody mentioned that Cassie's pet that "died" was a caterpoozle. So he took them at their word and held a brief funeral. Once he finally found out that Poozie had been a caterpoozle, he understood exactly what had happened, and led them back to the "funeral" site in time to unwrap the leaf and watch Poozie come out as a butterfairy.

*** Given the premise, that a magical dragon sent scales out into other worlds to find people who could come and visit, it's likely just a loan word.



**** Well, that went dark in a hurry. Given the way the dragons look and act, their parents are more likely to think their kids have made friends with a family of costumers and puppeteers.

*** '''Or''' they're going to assume that Emmy and Max staged the whole thing, either alone or with the other kids in their neighborhood, and think nothing more of it. C'mon, they're just kids!



** The fact that the dragons could murder someone and no one would ever know makes you hope that 1. there are not more magic scales and
2. that most dragons are good.

*** Technically yes they are. Remember that pirate captain they met up with who had buried toys under the schoolhouse? He states the toys were his as a boy and he and Quetzal buried them as children. They're certainly aware that Quetzal is an adult or at least much older than them so they're aware that humans age/grow up.

* The show was never really specific about whether time is effected in the real world while Max and Emmy are teleporting to Dragon Land and back.

It just keeps alternating. Is time effected in the real world effected while kids are in Dragon Land?
