3: Ordinary World: Carl's Ordinary world is like any other widowed old man's, he is lonely and grumpy. His house that used to be in the suburbs is now in the middle of a huge city surrounded by construction and skyscrapers.
4: Call To Adventure: This happens after Carl is told he is going to be put into Shady Oaks Retirement Village. He does not want to go so he fills his house with balloons and when the employees from Shady Oaks come to get him, Carl Releases the balloons and his house starts to float away.
5: Refusal of the Call: There really is no Refusal of the call. Carl accepts that he needs to go on this adventure so he does not end up in Shady Oaks, and to fulfill his wifes dream of putting their house on Paradise Falls.
6: Meeting With the Mentor: Carl first meets Russel when Russel is trying to earn his last Wilderness Explorer badge so he can become a senior Wilderness Explorer. Carl sends him off to find what he thinks is a fictional bird. But later when his house is off the ground, he realizes that Russel is on his porch, and from there they become a team.
7: Crossing the First Threshold: This is when Carl and Russel have to make it through a huge thunderstorm without losing to many balloons. At one point Carl gets bumped on the head and Russel has to guide them through.
8: Tests, Allies, Enemies.
9: Test: One test is moving Carl's house to the cliff on Paradise Falls. This is a test because the balloons are losing their helium and will soon no longer hold the house off the ground. Another test is Carl having to save Russel and Kevin from Charles Muntz. Allies: Russel- He is an ally because he is Carl's friend and mentor. He helps him find whats really important. Dug- He is an ally because he follows Carl around and helps him, Russel, and Kevin escape from the other dogs. He also helps Carl find Kevin in the Spirit of Adventure (the blimp Charles Muntz lives in). Kevin- He is an ally because he saves Carl and Russel by running them across the canyon when the dogs are chasing them. Enemies: Charles Muntz- He is an enemy because he tries to capture Kevin and he tries to kill Russel. Also he owns all the dogs in Paradise Falls that make things hard for Carl, Russel, and Kevin.
10: Approach to the Inmost Cave: The approach to the inmost cave is when Carl gets to the island and meets with the famous explorer, Charles Muntz. This is where things start to get interesting. Carl and Ellie's dream was to move to Paradise Falls and meet Charles.
11: Near Death Experience I think the near death experience is when Russel, Carl, Doug, and Kevin are running from the dogs. This is where Kevin hurts her leg and even if she tried, she wouldn't be able to escape on her own.
12: The Reward: The reward would be when Carl gets his house to Paradise Falls. After all the trouble and fuss he goes through to get there, he finally makes it.
13: The Road Back: The road back would have to be when Russel leaves Carl to go find Kevin. Carl sacrifices Kevin and Russel to get his house to Paradise Falls. This makes Russel feel like Carl betrayed Kevin.
14: The Resurrection: The resurrection is when Carl is being chased by Charles on the roof of his blimp. Charles doesn't want them to escape and he's going to do anything to try to stop them, even if it means their lives.
15: The Return with Elixir: The return with the elixir is when Carl decides to do what his heart tells him to do. Even though his house is finally on Paradise Falls, he's willing to give up the dream him and his wife had to save Kevin, Russel, and Doug. They defeat Charles and head back home.
