Finally, he wakes up!

Can you to drive us home

before you fall asleep again?

Yeah. I'm just working so hard.

- And I'm not?!

Well, I wouldn't exactly call

making these costumes 'hard work'.

I hate that my daughter

does nothing but insult me.

And I hate that my kids

are always fighting.

And I hate that my husband

just sleeps through it all.

Work it will, my transformation spell.

So very unhappy, you are.

Perceptive, you are.

Help, Baba Yaga will.

Really? How?

What? Sorry?

By fire, by light,

by all things bright.

Yeah. Now, dear, don't

...that needs feeding?

Or something?

Great, now it's gonna be raining.

Some time, this might take.

Come back here.

Disappear, pronto!
