a switch anyway, so...

How did it go?

- It went well.

- Really?

- When do they get back to you?

- Mm... next week, most likely.

Daniel, that's great.

I'm proud of you.

I want to hear

the other one again.

"Ah, little wretch, little wretch... "

Lunar Base

to Command Control, over.

Enough scary stories, Sammy.

Say good night to your brother.

Mom says I have to say good night.

- Night, Mom.

- Night, Jess.

You, sleep, now.

- Night, Mom.

- Good night.

Oh, Sammy, you scared me.

I had a bad dream.

You had a bad dream?

Oh, it's OK. It's OK now.

It's OK now.


...do you know who did this?

The Sandman.

The Sandman?

Is that one of your toys?

He was in my dream.

And did he tell you to do this

in your dream?

He did it himself,

before he came to my room.

Well, there's no sign

of forced entry.

You sure all the doors

and windows were locked?

Yeah, I'm sure.

We check them every night.

And other than the food,

nothing's missing?

- No.

- No. Nothing.

OK, well, as I see it,

Either the person who did this

had a key or, uh, it was...

...someone in the house.

Uh... no, I don't think so.

No, we were all asleep.

I'm not saying

it's anything sinister.

People do a lot of strange

things when they sleep.

Got a call over on Langford once,

family kept waking up to a mess

in the kitchen every morning.

Turns out the teenage daughter

was a sleep eater.

- A sleep eater?

- Yeah.

It's like a sleep walker,

but instead of getting up

and walking in their sleep,

they actually go to the kitchen and eat.

It's the craziest thing.

Look, Officer,

this wasn't a cooking mess.

This was like a mathematician's

idea of a geometry joke.

I don't know whether to be

pissed or impressed.

Well, maybe you just got some

real bright kids on your hands.
