He thinks I'm pretty.

Isn't that your brother over there?

- Brother? Who?

Oi, get back here, you geek!

And Frank,

Frank is never home.

Wishbone, I want these

loan applications by tomorrow.

But I wanted to be home on

time today to see my family.

You love your family?

- Yeah, of course.

Then avoid getting fired!

Leaving them with absolutely

nothing to eat.

What is that?

- Stress gives me wind.

Sorry, guys.

- Come on, Frank!

Smells like something crawled

inside you and died.

And now I can't even find

vampire teeth for my costume.

I just wanted us to do

something as a family again.

We used to have so much fun.

Dressing up, going to parties.

Look what I've found.

Where did you get them?

- Charity shop.

Used teeth.

Just one careful owner.

What's wrong?

- I just wish we had a party to go to.

You mean like this?

Monster Costume Party.

- Wow.

Cheyenne, this is perfect!

My family will love it!

When was the last time

we did something fun together?

Don't know, don't care.

One year, nine months

and 23 days ago.

So we've got some

catching up to do.

I've got to get ready for my date.

And I need to catch up on cold fusion.

I've got work to do.

But I've already made

the costumes, see?

My baby don't care for rings

Or other expensive things

My babyjust cares...

for me

My babyjust cares for me

My dear old friend, what would you say

if I offered you your freedom?

Release me?

If you can still perform

your transformation spell.

I can.

My amulet.

By fire, by light,

by all things bright!

Here, prove it on this.

Don't we look great?

Mum, you're really embarrassing.

No matter...

No matter what I do,

you think I'm embarrassing.

When I put on make-up, I'm embarrassing.

When I don't, I'm embarrassing.

When I wear a miniskirt, I'm embarrassing.
