{Marzipan walks through the Field, which is covered with leaves. A clock comes up from the bottom of the screen reading "8:13 pm"; however, the sun is clearly still out. Strong Bad hides behind The Stick wearing a red witch's hat and mask.}

MARZIPAN: Do do-doo. Lots of leaves. Do do-doo.

STRONG BAD: {jumping out from behind The Stick} Grooly bloody gross and blood!

MARZIPAN: {bored} Eh, nice try, Strong Bad. I'm just not feeling it in broad daylight. And, you're hiding behind a twig.

STRONG BAD: Yeah, I know. Why isn't it dark yet?

{Cut to Homestar, dressed as a newsboy and holding up a newspaper. As he says each line, he holds up a different newspaper whose headline matches what he's saying.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Extrie, extrie! Read all about it! Halloween night missing! Citizens mobilize to save holiday! In unrelated news, this newsboy get-up is not my Halloween costume!

{setting changes to Strong Bad's Basement}

STRONG BAD: This is bull donk! How are we supposed to scandalize and vandalize without the protective cover of Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha-Halloween night?

THE CHEAT: {questioning cheat noises}

STRONG BAD: I'm going to interrogate the toilet for about eight minutes. See if he knows anything. After that, we'll form into a giant robotic Halloween Night-finding space panther! {walks off. Strong Mad and The Cheat make confused faces.} {Pops back in.} Or not.

{changes setting to field with Homestar, Pom Pom, and Strong Sad}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Halloween Niiiight! Come here boy! {whistles and brings out chew toy} I got this spooky, yucky chew toy for ya!

STRONG SAD: Homestar, you are aware that Halloween Night is not a puppy, aren't you?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {in a laughing voice} Ye-es. {whistles} Obviously. I am aware that it is not. What was that last part?

STRONG SAD: A puppy.

HOMESTAR: A puppy.

STRONG SAD: Okay, good. But seriously, we have to find Halloween Night. I don't do so well with all this sunlight! {eerie music plays}

HOMESTAR: Sit, Halloween Night, Sit! Sit! Sit! Sit! Sit! Sit sit-sit!

{Strong Sad and Pom Pom run away.}

HOMESTAR: {whistles}

MARZIPAN: {playing her guitar, Carol}

COACH Z: Hey! Whatcha doing there, sister!

MARZIPAN: I'm trying to attract Halloween Night with music. It loves reggae, you know!

COACH Z: Good idea! And I can do some of my famous Halloween sound FX that everybody knows me for.

MARZIPAN: Coach Z, I don't think that's what everybody knows you for.

COACH Z: What are ya talkin' about? Listen to this spooky howl! Hort! Hort hort! Or get a load of these creepy crackets! Cracket! Cracket-dadadadada! Cracket-dadadadada!

MARZIPAN: We be jammin'!

BUBS: What is wrong with you people? I got instant spray-on Halloween Night! {sprays can} I got Halloween Night vision goggles! I even got this do-it yourself Halloween Night hovercraft kit

{static and change to spooky woods with Strong Bad, Strong Mad and The Cheat}

STRONG BAD: Aw man, I thought sure we'd find Halloween Night in the spooky woods! This place has really gone uphill since it dissappeared! Even that rotten old skull doesn't seem so creepy.

THE SKULL: {rainbow afro comes out of head} A-jam on it!

THE CHEAT: {the cheat noises}

STRONG BAD: Good thinkin' mont-ee Cheat! That guy's always hanging out with Halloween Night! But how do we find him?

THE CHEAT: {cheat noises and pulls out keybord and starts playing eerie music}

{The Goblin Appears}

STRONG BAD: What's this crap-cake? Where's Halloween Night? Strong Mad, pat him down! {Strong Mad hangs The Goblin by his feet and shakes him. Several coins, a pencil, and a hamster ball fall out.} Aw, he's clean. I'm taking that hamster ball though.

{scene changes to outside The King of Town's Castle with Strong Sad, Pom Pom, The King of Town, and The Poopsmith.}

STRONG SAD: Cough it up King of Town! We know you ate Halloween Night!

THE KING OF TOWN: You armatures don't know what your talking about. I'm on a diet. {The Poopsmith nods his head} Strictly Arbor Day and Earth Day this year. {The Poopsmith nods his head}

STRONG SAD: Well now where do we look? I kneed some doom and gloom soon. {laughing} Something funny is happening to the sides of my mouth.{Sides of his mouth wiggle and make weird noises}

{scene changes to have Homestar making a boxtrap at The Stick}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Homestar Runner, you are a genius! Thank you, Doug. Tell us what your doing here. Well it occured to me that no Halloween Night could resist these orenge and black flavored loose tooth remover candies.

COACH Z: How are they biting today Homestar?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Sound Effects Man! Ooo-ooo! Do broken wheelchair - On cobblestone.

COACH Z: {weird noises}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: It's like I'm right there, wheeling grandma through the old town. Do you want to stop for a kielbasa, grandma?

{scene changes to The Field with Marzipan, Strong Sad and Pom Pom. Strong Mad, Strong Bad and The Cheat walk in. Strong Sad's mouth is still wiggling.}

STRONG SAD: {laughing} Somebody shoot me.

STRONG BAD: Man, this sucks. Halloween Night's almost over and still no sign of Halloween Night. We should be turning treats right now!

MARZIPAN: Oh you guys didn't have any luck either? Oh well, happy Halloween anyways everybody. {Gets darker}
