[the Crypt Keeper is practicing his French with a recording]
"Bon soir, kiddies! I was just in the middle of my French lesson. Your pal, ze Crypt Keeper has decided to see Le Mans. Imagine me in gay Scaree, sitting in a nice little cafe on the rot bank. Sipping a glass of Cha-bleed while I write ghostcards home to all my fiends. Or I could stay home and tell you tonight's tale. It concerns an ambitious young magicians who wants to expand his gore-izons, too. In a tasteless trick called Well Cooked Hams."
Closing Segment[edit | edit source]
"Poor Miles! Just when he's ready to take the hacked on the road, he ends up on the silver scream! Still, I think he deserves another chance to get it right. You know what they say - if at first you don't succeed, die, die again! As for me, kiddies, I'm just about ready to go. Got my passport, my die-tinerary, and my ticket for the con-gourd. All I need now are my shots."
