The film starts in a sequence with Timmy Turner (Drake Bell) running through a jungle from masked natives, as he attempts to find Cosmo, Wanda and Poof. Timmy finds that Crocker has tied the three fairies up and is suspending them over a pit of lava. Tootie (Daniella Monet) arrives to save the fairies. Just as Timmy and Tootie are about to share a kiss, Timmy awakens to Jorgen's yelling, and the rescue scene is revealed to have been a daydream. Timmy is now working at a yuck factory due to Jorgen and the fairies agreeing that he should work for a living, which Timmy is not happy about. He says he only took the job to impress Tootie, who is working at the Helping Creatures Dimmsdale Research Center. Timmy then complains about being grown up and that he misses Dimmsdale. We then see Crocker at Dimmsdale calling his mother, who is making him go on vacation in the hope that it will help him with his obsession with fairies. Two children named Marty and Mitzy are seen in a limo excited about going to Hawaii; however, the parents then announce that they are not going with them and have instead hired a babysitter, who is revealed to be Vicky, much to their chagrin. Just as Timmy, Cosmo, Wanda and Poof stop by at Dimmsdale spying on them from a stack of tires their nemesis anti-fairy Foop spies on them and seeks to destroy them. Timmy then arrives at the Helping Creatures Dimmsdale Research Center to visit Tootie, who looks at rare spotted dolphins who are suffering a disease whose cure is conveniently located in Hawaii. Tootie is then chosen to go to their to deliver a special gas to cure the dolphins, much to Timmy's disappointment. Timmy then arrives at the Turners' house to visit his parents when Mr. Turner announces he is getting a promotion from a pencil company he works for, and is also going to Hawaii. Back in Fairy World Timmy is ready for another boring day at work; Jorgen announces he is going to Hawaii as well, and Timmy becomes depressed that everyone will be having fun except him. Sitting down to eat the lunch his father packed for him, he finds that his father accidentally packed the check from his boss. He then uses his lip balm, only to find Tootie's gas for the dolphins by mistake. So Timmy, along with Cosmo, Wanda, Poof, and secretly Foop (hanging on to the back of the Wishful Thinking van) travel to Hawaii to deliver Tootie her dolphin gas supplement and to bring Timmy's dad his check.

Scout Bozell has always dreamed of becoming a member of the safety patrol at his school, Rockridge Middle School. However, his clumsy, bumbling, hazardous nature prevents him from doing so. In one such instance shown at the film's beginning, while he picks up a banana peel on the ground and describing how hazardous is it, a kid trips over his backpack, causing his marbles to roll out and the kids to slip on them, one girl sending her lunchbox flying and it hits the principal on the head. As Scout swings his backpack to put the banana peel in the garbage, he knocks a kid off his bike, setting off a chain reaction that ends with a plastic squirrel the bike crashed into hitting a truck full of giant frozen tuna, which slide on the road and eat the last member of the safety patrol, "Joe Lobes" Lobenick, leaving him severely traumatized, and deleting the list of safety patrol until he recovers. The teachers try to convince Principal Tromp to put Scout on safety patrol, as he is the only one left on the list. Tromp agrees, but gets the school boundaries changed, transferring Scout to Laurelview Middle School.
