Richard Tyler: Hey! How'd you get here?

Fantasy: Quit it! We are in the presence of the Pagemaster.

Richard Tyler: I *know* who he is. He's the guy who did all THIS to me! Do you have any idea what I've been through?

The Pagemaster: Tell me.

Richard Tyler: I was nearly torn to shreds by a crazy doctor, I was made a slave to a bunch of mangy pirates, and eaten. Got that? Eaten by a fire-breathing dragon!

Horror: He don't mean it, my Pagemaster. He don't mean it.

Richard Tyler: Not to mention being tossed, squashed, and scared practically to death!

The Pagemaster: Yet you stand before me.

[First lines during the opening scene]

Claire Tyler: [offscreen; in bed] Alan, every ten-year-old is afraid of something.

Alan Tyler: [offscreen; in bed] The kid's afraid of tuna-fish sandwitches.

Claire Tyler: Mercury levels in the tuna.

Alan Tyler: Whatever.

Claire Tyler: Alan, the world is a frightening place to him right now. I think we could be a little more supportive.

Alan Tyler: Supportive? I'm the most supportive father on earth, but I'm running out of supportive things to do. I signed him up for Little League, he drove everybody crazy with statistics about how you can develop tumors from being hit in the head with a ball.

Alan Tyler: [offscreen] Did you know that shin splints can leadto blood clots in the legs?

Alan Tyler: Claire, he brought in a medical journal. Nobody wanted to play after that. And now I'm building him a tree house, in a tree he refuses to climb.

[while Alan says the last sentence above, Claire turns on a light and he looks at the treehouse on a dark and stormy night]

Claire Tyler: You know he hates heights.

Alan Tyler: I don't know. I just want to be a good father.

Claire Tyler: But you are a good father.

Richard Tyler: Can't argue with statistics, Dad.

Alan Tyler: Statistics. Here's something you can do: go down to Gutman's Hardware Store, buy a pound of these.

Richard Tyler: But, Dad...

Alan Tyler: Son, you can't live your life based on statistics. You've gotta take some chances. Now come on, Buddy.

Alan Tyler: [with a five-dollar-bill] You can do this.

[Alan gives money to Richard. His mother Claire releases him and joins her father in unison]

Richard Tyler: [Leaving his parents behind] This is not good. Definately not good.

[At night, the Tyler's parent car arrives home]

Claire Tyler: [In car] I can't imagine where he could be. Maybe we should call the police.

Claire Tyler: [Gasps as the car parks in front of Richard's bicycle, lying down] Alan!

[the car stops]

Claire Tyler: [Gets out] He's home!

[Alan gets out]

Claire Tyler: Alan.

Alan Tyler: [sees Richard in the treehouse] It's impossible.

[Alan goes up into the treehouse]

Alan Tyler: Rich?

Claire Tyler: [Goes up into the treehouse and takes Richard's signature glasses] We probably should put him in his bed.

Alan Tyler: Let's let him bsleep up here tonight.

[Claire goes down, as Alan uses the coat as a blanket for Richard]

Alan Tyler: [turning off a lantern] Love you, Richie.

[Alan goes down the treehouse. Alan & Claire goes inside the house]

Alan Tyler: Good night, son.

[Alan closes the door, leaves, and the living room lightd turn off]
