Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation

Synopsis: Mavis surprises Dracula with a family voyage on a luxury Monster Cruise Ship so he can take a vacation from providing everyone else's vacation at the hotel. The rest of Drac's Pack cannot resist going along. But once they leave port, romance arises when Dracula meets the mysterious ship captain, Ericka. Now it's Mavis's turn to play the overprotective parent, keeping her dad and Ericka apart. Little do they know that his "too good to be true" love interest is actually a descendant of Abraham Van Helsing, ancient nemesis to Dracula and all other monsters.

Budapest, Budapest,

the next stop, Budapest.

Budapest is the next stop.


- Tickets, ladies.

- Ooh, here you go.

- Here's mine.

- And mine.

- Mine too.

- Here you go.

And, thank you, young man.

Man, I hate wearing disguises.

This heels are killing me.

Okay, take it down a notch,

we don't want to alarm the humans.

Psst, Drac.

I'm about to freak out!

- You're a nice kitty.

- I'm good kitty cat. Meow, meow.

Oh, no, not this clown again.

Good evening, travelers,

I am professor Abraham Van Helsing. Yes.

One of the Van Helsing's.

For centuries, my families protected

humanity from the evils of monsters.

So, you can believe me

when I tell you

there are monsters hiding

amongst you!

But fear not,

for I am a professional.

And I know

how to flush out this beast.

- And bring them into the light!

- Fire, Bad!

Sorry, guys.

Finally, first I kill Dracula,

and then the rest of the monsters!

Why do you keep doing this? Your dad,

your grandfather, your great-great-granny.

I defeated them all.

When will you Van Helsing's

ever learn to let go of the hate?

Never! Because you monsters

are evoked!

- Eh, squeak, squeak?

- Huh, A mouse?

You can't run from me, Prince of Darkness!

I will hunt you for all eternity.

I swear, I will never rest

until I destroy you!

And... Every... Other... Monsters...

If it's the last thing... I... Ever... Ahhh!

Boy, that guy is annoying.

Maybe one day there will be a place where

the monsters can go, to get away from it all.

Take a vacation, who knows? Maybe even

get married. Wouldn't that be something?

Shh, okay. Shh, shh.

When is this thing starting?

Oh, you made them cry, Wayne.

- Oh, Except this little one.

- That's Sunny, she doesn't cry.

- Ow!

- She bites.

This is a very

special moment, Carl.

Any second, your beautiful bride

is going to walk right down the aisle.

Oh no, Drac. She's not coming.

Oh, don't worry. Mavis is with her.

I'm sure everything is under control.

Mavie, is everything under control?

Um... yup, just a slight case

of pre-wedding jitters.

Yup, everything is fine.

Please, try to relax, Lucy.

I've taken care of everything.

The wedding is going to be perfect.

It's not that. Just... how do I know

I'm doing the right thing?

I know just how you feel.

The day I married Johnny

was the best day of my life, but...

- ...I was so nervous.

- Not as nervous as I was.

And you should have seen my dad,

he was a mess.

I wouldn't get out

of my coffin that night.

But he knew

it was meant to be.

It doesn't matter where you come from,

or how different you are.

A zing only happens

once in your life.

And you have to cherish it.

You're right! Thank you!

All right, okay.

Oh, okay.

I do.

I do.

- Do you hear that?

- Yes, I thought we locked him in his room.

We did!

- Hi, mom. Hi, papa!

- Dennis!

Tinkles was great,

so we let him out.

Tinkles, sit!

Ugh, whose idea was it

to let Dennis have a pup?

- Umm, yours?

- Okay. Eh...

Eh... Right.

- Poor Tinkles.

- Dennis?

Look, honey,

I know you love Tinkles,

but we're not allowed to bring our dogs...

Uh... uh, I mean our pets everywhere.

- Okay?

- Okay.

DJ Jessy Johnny in the house.

It's time to welcome

the happy couple.

Mr. and Mrs. Prickles!

The bride and groom, invite everyone

to join them on the dance floor.

Care to dance?

- Is that her?

- Ooh, watch out now.

She got stitches

in all the right places.

Okay, there's no way that

is related to you, Frank.

Well, she's my

right arm's cousin.

- Oh!

- Ah, I see it now.

Frank wanted me to meet you.

We're arm new cousins.

Twice he moved.

Ah, of course, eh...

I don't recognize that bicep anyway.

He thought since we're both single,

we might hit it off. Maybe go on a date?

Date? Oh, well, eh...

It's just that, eh...

Whoa, DJ's booth

is a sacred space!

Oh! I love this song!

Do you want to dance? Dracula?

Oh, where'd he go?

Dracula! Dracula!

What's the matter, Dracula?

Don't like her?

No offense, but you can't be

too picky.

You haven't had a date

in 100 years.

Look, guys. I appreciate your concerns,

but it's... It's not up to me.

You only zing once, and I did.

Times have changed, buddy.

You can even find someone

to zing with on your phone now.

What? Really?

Oh, no, no, no.

I'm far too busy. I have Mavis and Dennis

in the hotel, and blah blah blah.

Um, did you guys hear that?

He actually said, "Blah blah blah".

I don't say, "Blah blah blah"!

What can I help you with,

Lord of Darkness?

Eh, Uh...

I'm looking for a Zing.

Okay, changing Thumbread.

No, no,

I'm looking for a date.

The date is Friday, July 13th.

No, no, no, no.

I want to meet someone.


You want to eat dim sum.

Are you kidding me, right now?

Don't you get it?

I want to go on a date.

I'm... lonely.

I understand.

- You want Baloney.

- Ugh.

What? Look at that there,

come on. Huh?

Too many eyes. Too few eyes.

Not into tentacles.

Match found? No, no, no!

No, no!

- First things first.

- Whoa!

I'm not into games, you'd better have a job,

and my cats have to like you.

Oh, hey! No, no!

Oh, whoa, no!

- Dad?

- Oh, Mavis! Oh, what are you doing here?

I was just checking on the honeymoon suite

and I heard something.

Oh, I'm sorry my little bed-bug,

I wa... I was just cleaning the attic.

Oh, Cleaning the attic, cleaning the attic,

La-la, So dirty in the attic
