- No, then you're not embarrassing.

I'm not?

You're just really sad.

Well I think mum is beautiful.

- Don't be so scared all the time.

I'm not scared.

If you stood up for yourself,

you wouldn't get beaten up.

Are you being bullied at school?

I'd rather be a suck-up

than fail my exams.

You're failing your exams?

Don't hit your brother!


- You didn't say anything about kicking.

Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent.

- Dictionary mouth.

Frank, can you say something?!

- What? Something.

Well you did ask, Mum.

Don't you get smart, Max.

- Too late.


You will transform

this woman into a vampire.

But, Dracula, you are.

Why not simply bite her yourself?

If I bite her,

she will lose her soul.

And her soul is exquisite.

Difficult spell this is,

on humans.

Will only work

if the person is unhappy.

Wow, a red carpet.

This really looks like

my kind of party.

- There you are.

- Hi.

We're here for the party.

- Yeah, I know, dear. Follow me.

This way

- Okay.

I have them.

- Wow...

...we're really getting the VIP treatment.

Good job, Mum.

- Didn't I tell you it would be fun?

Let's rock.

And where exactly is here?

What sort of party is this?

Oh, and why are we on a stage?

Why are we the only ones

wearing costumes?

They think we're the band.

Okay, then, we can do this.

Silent night, Holy night,

All is...


I have a feeling that Emma is

very, very unhappy.

Then enchant her, I can.


And fix this before you go.

Hm? Ach.

I need a holiday.

Well that was less than ideal.

- Why don't you talk like a regular person?

Can't you just be nice to

your brother?

It's the last thing

I feel like doing.

I'm sorry.

- That was totally humiliating,

and it's all your fault.

- It was an accident.
