- No, but that's Larry.

- Darling, I'm going to have a sherry.

- Oh!

- Would you or wouldn't you like some?

- Oh, I wou... I wou...

Um... yes, I'll have some.

- Here's your drink, darling.

- Thanks. Cheers.

- To Wolfington Castle.

- To Woo... Woo...

To Woo-woo-woo...

To Woo-woo-woo-woo...


To Woo-woo-woo...

Woo-woo... To Woo-woo-woo...

To Woo-woo-woo-woo... Wolfington Castle.

- He's out. He's fired.

- No!

- Who the hell are you?

- I'm Dr Paul Abbot.

Oh, Doctor, thank God you're here.

Please come in.

This is our sponsor, Mr Tarlow.

Charlie, this is Larry's uncle,

the famous psychiatrist.

- I asked him to come meet you.

- What's he laughing at?

- This is a mystery, not a comedy.

- He's laughing because he's afraid.

- Afraid?

- Tomorrow it might make him cry.

That's what he did last week.

What's he afraid of?

Thunder and lightning? A wind machine?

We have that stuff every week.

Why now? We were number one!

Because three weeks ago

he got engaged to be married.

- The Curse of The Mummy.

- What's that got to do with it?

The engagement has opened

a crack in his psyche,

so hideous to Larry's mind

that he must lock it out.

- But I do know that I can cure him.

- How?

By scaring him...

to death.

- You want to scare him even more?

- How do you cure hiccups, Mr Tarlow?

- Well, you...

- Listen...

I've been working in Zurich

with a brilliant scientist...

who has discovered

the cure for Larry's condition.

Dr Strickland has proved the cure is to increase

the pressure of the fears, not lessen it.

- Like going faster around a dangerous curve?

- Exactly.

This weekend, starting tonight,

the entire Abbot family...

is gathering for the wedding

at the estate of Larry's great-aunt.

We have him in an ideal situation,
