This article is a transcript of the PAW Patrol episode "Pups Save a Playful Dragon" from Season 4, which premiered on March 18, 2017 in Canada, and on April 7, 2017 in the United States.

00:00:44 Alex: Max and his best friend Buddy the dragon, were flying high in the sky, when they saw a forest that would be perfect for hide and seek.
00:00:59 Alex: Max looked and looked, but couldn't find him. Until, he heard a hiccup and saw a fireball fly through the air.
00:01:10 Alex: He found Buddy behind a bush. That hiccupping dragon gave himself away again.
00:01:16 Rubble: (Laughing) Buddy probably ate a really big lunch.
00:01:20 Alex: Wouldn't it be great to have a dragon friend?
00:01:22 Rubble: Yeah, he could roast marshmallows any time.
00:01:25 Alex: Mmm...
00:01:26 Rubble: (Yawning)
00:01:27 Alex: Marshmallows...
00:01:29 Rubble: Big lunch... (Snoring)
00:01:34 (Sound): (Crashing)
00:01:35 Rubble: Uh, what was that sound?
00:01:38 Alex: Hey, look!
00:01:41 Rubble: The dragon is missing from all of the pictures.
00:01:44 (Sound): (Crashing)
00:01:46 Rubble: No way! Is that...
00:01:48 Alex: It's Buddy! He's real!
00:01:50 Rubble: Cool! Can he be my best friend?
00:01:53 Alex: Pretty sure he's my best friend.
00:01:55 Buddy: (Snorting)
00:01:56 Pedestrians: (Screaming)
00:01:59 Rubble: Your best friend!
00:02:03 Buddy: (Hiccupping)
00:02:05 Rubble: Guess he still has the hiccups.
00:02:10 Alex: Uh, what's he doing?
00:02:13 Rubble: Looks like he's trying to hide.
00:02:15 Alex: Maybe he's playing hide and seek like in the book.
00:02:20 Buddy: (Hiccupping)
00:02:22 Rubble: Whoa! Or he's playing barbecued chairs.
00:02:25 Buddy: (Hiccupping)
00:02:27 Man: I… I… is that a dragon?!
00:02:30 Alex: Hey, everybody, It's okay! Buddy's really friendly.
00:02:36 Man: Run!
00:02:37 Rubble: Better call Ryder.
00:02:40 (Sound): (Phone ringing)
00:02:42 Ryder: Hi, Rubble. What's up?
00:02:43 Rubble: This is gonna sound kinda strange, but Alex was reading a story about a dragon and somehow it got out of the book, and now it's here in Adventure Bay scaring everyone!
00:02:53 Alex: Buddy, that's his name is actually really nice and playful, but he hiccups fireballs... a lot.
00:03:00 Ryder: Yeah, that is a bit strange, but we'll take care of it. No dragon is too playful, no pup is too small.
00:03:08 (Sound): (Pup pad beeping)
00:03:09 Ryder: PAW Patrol, (Pup tag beeping) to the Lookout!
00:03:11 Pups: Ryder needs us!
00:03:14 Marshall: Whoa!
00:03:17 Marshall: Whoa! (Crashing)
00:03:19 Rubble: Look out!
00:03:21 Marshall: Huh? But I'm already here.
00:03:23 Alex: Whoa! (Crashing)
00:03:25 Alex: Yes! I've always wanted to do that.
00:03:29 Everyone: (All laughing)
00:03:40 (Sound): (Elevator bell dinging)
00:03:45 Chase: PAW Patrol ready for action, Ryder, sir!
00:03:48 Alex: And me too!
00:03:50 (Sound): (Pup pad beeping)
00:03:51 Ryder: Thanks for coming so quickly, team. Buddy the playful dragon jumped out of Alex's storybook. He wants to play hide and seek, but...
00:03:58 Buddy (On the screen): (Hiccupping)
00:04:00 Ryder: He's scaring folks and damaging things with his super hot hiccups instead. We have to get Buddy back into his book.
00:04:07 Ryder: So, for this mission, I'll need (Pup pad beeping) Marshall, I need you to put out anything Buddy accidentally burns with his hiccups.
00:04:14 Marshall: I'm fired up!
00:04:15 (Sound): (Phone ringing)
00:04:16 Ryder: Mr. Porter?
00:04:18 Mr. Porter: Ryder, a huge dragon is behind the lemonade sign.
00:04:21 Buddy: (Hiccupping)
00:04:25 Mr. Porter: And he just knocked it down.
00:04:26 Ryder: Sorry, that's our friend Buddy. Don't worry, help is on the way!
00:04:31 Mr. Porter: Thank you, Ryder!
00:04:33 Ryder: Rubble, I need you to use your crane to put the sign back up.
00:04:37 Rubble: Rubble on the double!
00:04:40 Alex: (Pup pad beeping) Hey, that's me! What? My own pup tag?
00:04:45 Ryder: That's right, Alex! Buddy is from your favorite book, so no one knows more about the dragon than you. PAW Patrol needs your help!
00:04:54 Alex: My help? Awesome!
00:04:58 Ryder: And to help you find Buddy, you're going to need this. Wherever he goes, you can follow and tell us where he is.
00:05:05 Alex: Wait, my very own jetpack?!
00:05:09 Ryder: Well, just for this mission.
00:05:11 Alex: That's good enough for me. Let's do this! Wait, what's my catchphrase?
00:05:17 Alex: (Thinking) Oh! Maybe that was it. Let's do this!
00:05:22 Ryder: All right, PAW Patrol is on a roll!
00:05:26 Pups: (All pups barking and cheering)

00:06:23 (Sound): (Siren blaring)
00:06:25 Alex: I can see my house from here!
00:06:27 Rubble: (Rubble's laughing)
00:06:32 Mr. Porter: Good to see you, PA… A… A……! Alex?! What are you doing up there?!
00:06:38 Alex: Somersaults! (Chuckling)
00:06:40 Ryder: Alex is helping us out for this mission.
00:06:42 Mr. Porter: Well, Alex, watch out for seagulls!
00:06:45 Ryder: Rubble, use your crane to lift that sign back onto the roof.
00:06:49 Rubble: On it!
00:06:57 Mr. Porter: Good as new. Thanks!
00:07:01 Alex: (Slurping) I always wanted to try that! (Chuckling)
00:07:05 Buddy: (Hiccupping)
00:07:06 Alex: Hey, there he is! Buddy! He's heading towards the train tunnel.
00:07:11 Rubble: He must be trying to hide again.
00:07:14 Ryder: Let's go!
00:07:15 (Sound): (Siren blaring)
00:07:21 Alex: Which way did Buddy go?
00:07:22 (Sound): (Train whistle blaring)
00:07:25 Mr. Engineer: (Gasping) Wha… wha… what?!
00:07:28 (Sound): Train brakes screeching)
00:07:30 Mr. Engineer: What's that huge thing doing here?
00:07:31 Rubble: Playing hide and seek, but he hasn't found the right place to hide yet.
00:07:36 Buddy: (Hiccupping)
00:07:37 Mr. Engineer: Jiminy biscuits! He's a real fire-breathing dragon!
00:07:41 Rubble: But he's nice.
00:07:42 Alex: Buddy, careful! You're scaring people!
00:07:47 Ryder: We'd better follow him. Come on!
00:07:50 (Sound): (Siren blaring)
00:07:52 The Sheep: (Bleating)
00:07:53 Alex: Sheep can't make fire, right?
00:07:55 Ryder: Nope! Must have been Buddy. Marshall, put out that haystack.
00:08:00 Marshall: On my way!
00:08:02 (Sound): (Siren blaring)
00:08:08 Ryder: Our dragon must be around here somewhere.
00:08:10 Buddy: (Hiccupping)
00:08:13 Rubble: Whoa!
00:08:14 Marshall: Wow!
00:08:15 Rubble: Buddy made popcorn!
00:08:20 Alex: Look! Buddy's going that way!
00:08:23 Ryder: Marshall, hose down that corn crib.
00:08:25 Rubble: But don't get the popcorn soggy.
00:08:33 Rubble: (Barking) Shovel!
00:08:38 Rubble: (Munching then gulping) Oh, yeah! Still nice and crispy!
00:08:50 Alex: I've lost him. Sorry!
00:08:53 (Sound): (Chittering)
00:08:54 Rubble: Wait, do you hear that?
00:08:56 Everyone: (Gasping)
00:08:57 Alex: Bats!
00:08:59 Marshall: How do you get bats to leave a cave in the middle of the day?
00:09:02 Buddy: (Hiccupping)
00:09:04 Rubble: Just ask a dragon to help?
00:09:06 Rubble: Buddy's in there!
00:09:08 Buddy: (Hiccupping)
00:09:10 Marshall: His hiccups are getting worse.
00:09:12 Rubble: And they're starting to loosen those rocks.
00:09:14 Buddy: (Hiccupping)
00:09:16 (Sound): (Rumbling)
00:09:19 Alex: Oh, no! Poor Buddy's trapped!
00:09:21 Ryder: Quick, Rubble, use your rig to move those rocks!
00:09:24 Rubble: I'm on it, Ryder!
00:09:27 Alex: Gee, I hope once Rubble opens the cave, Buddy doesn't try to run away and hide again.
00:09:33 Marshall: I know. He sure moves around a lot for someone trying to hide.
00:09:38 Ryder: Hmm... maybe Buddy's not trying to hide. What if he's the one seeking?
00:09:44 Alex: That's it! Buddy's looking for his best friend Max.
00:09:47 Ryder: Alex, when Rubble opens the cave, we need to show the dragon where Max really is. You have to show Buddy your storybook.
00:09:55 Alex: Uh-oh!
00:09:57 Ryder: What's wrong?
00:09:58 Alex: I kinda left it on the beach. But wait, I have a jetpack. Be right back!
00:10:06 Alex: Hi, Grandpa!
00:10:09 Mr. Porter: Oh, sorry! I'm still can't get used to seeing that boy up there.
00:10:15 Alex: Got it!
00:10:20 Alex: Wait, Buddy, we found Max. He's hiding in your storybook.
00:10:27 Ryder: That's your best friend, right?
00:10:29 Buddy: (Grunting)
00:10:30 Ryder: Well, he's been waiting for you here in the storybook this whole time.
00:10:34 Ryder: You can go back in whenever you want.
00:10:38 Alex: (Laughing) Hey, that tickles!
00:10:41 Rubble: I think he's saying thank you. (Slurping) A really warm and sticky thank you.
00:10:47 Alex: You're welcome. Oh, and say hi to Max.
00:10:50 Ryder: And remember, Buddy, whenever you're having trouble hiding or seeking, just hiccup for help.
00:11:01 Rubble: I'm gonna miss him.
00:11:02 Rubble: Me too! (Hiccupping) But now we have something to remember him by. (Hiccupping)
00:11:07 Rubble: (Snoring and then hiccupping)
00:11:08 Rubble: Whoa!
00:11:09 Alex: (Gasping)
00:11:10 Rubble: How long have I been asleep?
