Sir, I've come to ask for

your daughter's hand in marriage.

Get off my property!

I'm not leaving

until I see Estelle.

You're not coming into my home

and making demands! Get out now!

Mother, I was listening to that.

Oh, come on.

It's a little dated,

don't you think, even for me.

Do you realise these are my last

precious moments to listen to NPR

before I'm culturally 'ostrichized'?

Sweetie, it's 'ostracized'.

Listen, you're going to love

Serenity Falls, I promise.

There's a lot to do there.

It's a beautiful little town.

And how am I going to live without

the opera, MOMA, Broadway,

long walks in Central Park?

You could take me anywhere.

My heart will always belong

to the Big Apple.

Roxy, we lived in New Jersey.

You've been to Manhattan twice.

Can't your parents

do anything about this,

to save us

from being moved to Siberia?

I'm going to be

a teenager soon,

so don't blame me

if I end up a reclusive misfit.

You hang on there, little missy.

You're not going to be a teenager

for another three-and-a-half years.

Looks like we have no choice

but to get married now, Max.

All we have is each other.

According to the last census,

the population of Serenity Falls

and its surrounding area is 8,519.

Statistically speaking, there's

quite a number in our age group.

Well, that's good!

Does that include the cows, Max?

Are you sure this is it?

32 Greenwood Lane.

This is it.

The estate agent

said it was nice, but this is...


What do you think, Max?

Want to check it out?


I can't believe

we get to live here!

- I can't believe it, either.

- Certainly impressive.

Thank you for

bringing us here, Mom.

So you think you're not

going to mind living here, then?

I'll manage.

Well, good.

Oh, Max. What times

we shall have here.

Can't you just see it?

Tea in the garden,

lawn bowling,

croquet, and the dances!

Hey, why don't we have

an 'agnaugural' ball?


- Are you okay?

- Fantastic.

Hey, what's your problem?

Oh, I'm sorry, the ball slipped.

Is your brother

going to cry?

He's not my brother.

He's my fianc.

And you'd better be sorry,

'cause he's a Duck Chin-chu Ninja.


He was raised with

the Woonah masters of Indonesia,

who taught him the secret art

of Oriental brain-kicking.

He could snap your brain in two

with one secret kick.

Like this.

That's baloney.

Okay, find out the hard way.

I dare you.

Is she making that up?

Maybe. What do you want?

You moving in?

Whatever gave you that idea?

- How old are you?

- 12.

Well, I'm 13. Remember that.

Traditionally, it follows.

I'm Seth. This is my 'hood.

That's Timmy and Tommy.

They're twins.

Twins? No way!

I never would have guessed.

Does your mother

dress you alike on purpose,

or did you choose

that look yourselves?

You know,

the Moody Mansion is haunted.

That's why nobody's

lived there for years,

till you dweebs moved in.

The Moody Mansion?

Yeah, they say you can hear

ghosts moving around in there.

Good luck sleeping

at night, losers.



Maybe a murder happened here,

and now the ghost has returned

from beyond the grave

to 'wreath' its revenge.

Max, what if it mistakes us

for the killer?

There's no empirical evidence

to support the belief in ghosts.

Hey, Max, look at the...

Max, listen!

The footsteps of the damned!

Okay, kids, I have some bad news

and I have some good news.

The bad news is that

the furnace isn't working...

And the good news?

Well, I think I have

a fun solution.

Wait, wait, don't help me.

- Russia?

- Russia's not a continent.

Okay, then what's
