I saw him on the ferry!

Why would Hamburger-Head go on the boat?

He travelled below. The Hound from Hell was with him.

His wolf?

The Freak was this close to me.

Why would the Freak go to Boston?

Mafia meeting, probably.

Porno. He writes porno books.

Get outta here!

He gets parcels from porn publishers.

How's a freak gonna write porno?

What would he write about?

I don't know. Maybe his dog!

Wait. Did you hear that?


Listen... What was that?

I'm scared.

Shut up, don't let him see you.

Ow, my finger!

Shut up, man!

- Wait up, guys!

- Come on!

Start the motor! Come on!

Boy, was that close! Jeez! Was that a wolf?

Did you see the Freak up there, man?

He was scared of the wolf. He was pissin' in his pants!

We gotta go back!

I left my books there! Come on! I left my books!

We gotta go back!

Tell the school the dog ate 'em.

What subject was it, Latin? Screw-us you-us!

See ya later, pizza-head!

If he's a cannibal, I'll just tell him I have bone cancer.

'I don't know what to do when he gets that stupid look on his face.'

'What do you see in the ink blot, Charles?'

'What do you think I mean by "passive aggressive"?'

'He's his father's son all right.'

'Eric was my third husband and my one real mistake.'

'That's very funny, Charles. What do you really see?'

'You don't care about anybody but yourself.'

'What do you see in the ink blot, Charles?'

John Wayne.

What are you doing here?

What's wrong with you? You got any idea how long you been here?


It just went off. It's a funny clock.

Funny "ha-ha", funny strange?

Not sure.

Says you taught at, erm, Barrett Academy.

Is that a good school?

What do you teach?

- What's your name?
