Bettina: The little goblins cleaned us out already – guess we’ll have to make do with apples –



Lenore: I know what that’s like – you’ve been buying the generic gins again, haven’t you? Let’s hope there’s no insurrections when the ankle-biters see what you’re fobbing off on them –



Bettina: Oh, I know… what with less modeling jobs than there used to be, I have to economize – sorry about that –

Lenore: Not to worry, it’s still effective, even if it isn’t as smooooooth, sweetie. There’s a ‘toonie waiting on the table behind you. Take a load off, and have a slurp –



Buddha Girl: Eh, it STILL Hall’weenie, an’ we wants TREATS! Watcha got, witchy lady?

Bettina: Oh! I didn’t hear the doorbell, girls – how did you get in?

Buddha Girl: You door gots a KNOB, like anny udder door – dat’s how we do it!

Angry Sparrow: Yeh, ain’t no magic wit’ knobs –

Tragic Plum: Oooh… I hope the knob wasn’t magic… or how else will we leave a witch house?... ooooh



Bettina: My, what cute costumes -- here you go, girls, some very nice apples –

Buddha Girl: Eh, dat very nice buncha apples, but we here fo’ CANDY!

Angry Sparrow: Yeh, candy –

Tragic Plum: Oh yes, candy… fruit is so… healthy



Lenore: Accept NO substitutes, eh, girlies? You’ve come to the wrong house *snerk*! Though it looks like you haven’t done so badly tonight –

The Cat: rrrrrrowrrrrr… (translated: “No kidding!”)



Buddha Girl: You KNOW it, udder witchy lady! We done good wit’ our haul, but den dat de idea wit’ dis holiday; it ALL ‘bout de candy. We gotta stock up, jus’ in case dey a SHORTAGE, you know?

Angry Sparrow: Yeh – an’ we know ‘bout shortage!



Tragic Plum: Ooooh, I think I’ve had TOO much candy… and the night’s not over… yet… ooooooo



Lenore: Well, they’ve got you over a barrel of whiskey, have they not, dear Bettina? Don’t be surprised if they have a few tricks up their little sleeves!

Buddha Girl: We dunno ‘bout dat barrel a’whiskey, but yeh, we can show you some tricks! We gots LOTS a’dem!

Angry Sparrow: Yeh, even do’ we don’t gots very long sleeves.

Tragic Plum: Ooo, I don’t have any sleeves, really… so I guess I don’t have ANY tricks…

Bettina: This is not looking good –



Moth: OOOOOH! So DIS a HAUN’ED house! Do GHOSTS give CANDY?

Lovechild: Don’t be silly, Moth, it’s a perfectly ordinary house – I think. Hello, we are here for Trick-or-Treat, if you do not mind –

Buddha Girl: Eh, I tink you two outta luck – dey ain’t no candy here!

Angry Sparrow: Yeh, dey jus’ fruits here.

Lenore: And nuts – *hic*



Moth: Oooh, lookit DIS candy! Dey’s LOTS –

Buddha Girl: Eh, don’ you go stickin’ you trunk in here, el’phantdis OURS. We hunt it down fair’n’square – you get you own!



Bettina: Here you go, dear – how about a nice, healthy apple?

Lovechild: No, thank you – it quite defeats the purpose of this holiday *waving hand*. Besides, one should never take an apple from a witch. I have read “Snow White”, you know!



Zephyrus: There you are, Ms. Plum, and your sisters! I’ve been looking all over for you, after you ran on ahead. You’ve worried me terribly!

Bettina: Oh… my… where on earth did you get that costume, little boy?

Buddha Girl: Eh, dat no costume – he half horse ALL de time! He a horsey boy.

Moth: Why… why you not wear costume?

Tragic Plum: Oooh, Zephyrus, I’m sorry… but my sisters… I had to help them…

Lovechild: You’d be of more help if you had brought a broom

Angry Sparrow: Eh, here a broom – you gonna need it soon, too –



Lenore: D’you think I can blame this all on the cheap gin? Or maybe it means I just need more

The Cat: Mrrrowwwwwrrr… (translation: “When has that ever stopped you?”)



If she keeps up with the gin, eventually, Lenore may understand the cat MUCH better.
