When Atreyu looks into the mirror, Bastian thinks Atreyu can see him
G'Mork comes leaping through a window in the attic where Bastian is reading

A potion from Urgl should do the trick
Slay the witch that made her sick
By a human child, she must be given a new name
Another Empress must be found who looks exactly the same
20. While Atreyu and Falkor are flying around Fantasia looking for its boarders in another stirring montage, I'd like to take a minute and ask if you know the name of the group Llamal was lead singer of? (As you know, he was the guy who sang the theme song, and the band had a hit with "Too Shy.")

It was his mother's name
It was his grandmother's name
It was his sister's name
It was his first crush's name
25. Bastian has to wish for Fantasia to be restored and to get a chance to ride Falkor in order to get back at the bullies in the real world. But the question is what does The Childlike Empress ask him to wish upon?
