Hot, hot, hot! Ow, sun, sun.

Oh, no.

Okay, then. On your marks.

It's not unusual to be

loved by anyone

It's not unusual to have

fun with anyone

If you should ever want

to be loved by anyone

It's not unusual to find

that I'm in love with you


I'm just a bat, myself.

Stop it.

I am the Prince of Darkness.

I do not do cuddly!

...right there in front of everybody,

"Keep the car, it'll be worth it"...

I'm sorry.

No, not worth it to "ow".

Worth it to get rid of her.

Quiet! What is that noise?

Do you hear that?

Oh, it's me.

It's my pocket vibrating.


Er, hello?

Oh, hi. I want your teeth.

Excuse me?

- Your fake vampire teeth. You see...

...I've been looking everywhere.

You are my last hope.

I can assure you, madam,

I may be getting on in years...

...but my teeth

are very much my own.

This is 'Vampires R Us'?

The costume store?

This is Dracula.



The Prince of Darkness.

No? The Bat Out Of Hell.

The Scourge of Transylvania.

King of bats.

Okay... Dracula.

I'm hanging up now.

Stop! No, please don't hang up.


Er, why not?

It's...'s just so nice to finally have

someone to talk to.

Are you lonely?

So, so very lonely.

Well, we could chat some more

if you want?

I would like that very much.

What's your name,

fair maiden?

Emma. Emma Wishbone.

Well, Emma Wishbone, maybe... was fate itself

that brought us together.

Are you alright?

I'm sorry, that was lame.

Hello? Hello, Emma?!

- Oh, come back!

Hello? I can barely hear you.

Great. Now I get to buy a

new phone I can't afford.

Off, you stupid thing!

Emma Wishbone


Find me Emma Wishbone.

And I will make her my wife.

And bring in my washing.

I think it's going to rain.

Do you know what today is not,


Your day?


Darling, you say that every day.

Yes, but today, instead of calling a

costume store, I ended up talking to Dracula.

And because of that,

my phone fell into the drain.

Who did you speak to?

Just some weirdo.

Why do these things keep happening?

Let me relax you with a massage.

It's as if there's a curse

on this entire family.

Max is having a hard time at school

and the shop is in decline.

Max, show us your experiment.

Fellow classmates, I present you -

the Solar System.

Our group of planets

orbit the magnificent Sun.

It burns at

27 million degrees Fahrenheit.

But one day, in around

five billion years time...

...the Sun will start to cool

and the Earth will be plunged...

...into a deadly ice age.

The whole planet will be covered with ice.

And all life will end.

Any questions?

Yeah. How do you wanna die?

My daughter Fay...

...desperately wants to be

a grown-up.

"I'm the only one for you"

"Because I only love me

I only love me"

Fay, if you fancy this guy so much,

why not talk to him?

He only goes for model material.

"I only love me on my own."

- That is just so cool. - Awesome.

Is it something new of yours?

- Yes...

You're really pretty, Fay.

- Sure. Didn't you see my last magazine cover?

Well then, see you tonight,


Oh, no, Sheila,

he's coming over here.

So you smile then say 'Hi'.

- That's way too complicated.

No, all you need is a push.

Well that's one way of meeting.

What's your name?

Er, Girdl.

You're called Girdl?




Okay, Flam.

Do you feel like

getting off me now?

- Oh, Fay.

- Yeah, sure.

Earth to Fay.

- We're looking for...

...some pretty girls for our new video.

And we're shooting it tonight.


- So, you're a pretty girl.

I am?

- See you tonight.
