The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993) Script

'Twas a long time ago, longer now than it seems... in a place that perhaps you've seen in your dreams.

For the story that you are about to be told... took place in the holiday worlds of old.

Now, you've probably wondered where holidays come from.

If you haven't, I'd say it's time you begun!

Boys and girls of every age Wouldn't you like to see something strange Come with us and you will see This our town of Halloween This is Halloween This is Halloween Pumpkins scream in the dead of night This is Halloween Everybody make a scene Trick-or-treat till the neighbor's gonna die of fright It's our town Everybody scream In this town of Halloween I am the one hiding under your bed Teeth ground sharp and eyes glowing red I am the one hiding under your stairs Fingers like snakes and spiders in my hair This is Halloween This is Halloween Halloween, Halloween Halloween, Halloween In this town we call home Everyone hail to the pumpkin song In this town Don't we love it now Everybody's waiting for the next surprise

'Round that corner, man Hiding in the trash can

- Something's waiting now to pounce and how you'll Scream

- This is Halloween - Red and black - And slimy green

- Aren't you scared Well, that's just fine Say it once, say it twice Take a chance and roll the dice Ride with the moon in the dead of night Everybody scream Everybody scream In our town of Halloween I am the clown with a tear-away face Here in a flash and gone without a trace I am the who when you call who's there I am the wind blowing through your hair I am the shadow on the moon at night Filling your dreams to the brim with fright This is Halloween This is Halloween Halloween, Halloween Halloween, Halloween

Tender lumplings everywhere Life's no fun without a good scare

- That's ourjob But we're not mean In our town of Halloween In this town Don't we love it now Everyone's waiting for the next surprise Skeleton Jack might catch you in the back And scream like a banshee Make you jump out of your skin This is Halloween Everybody scream Won't you please make way for a very special guy Our man Jack is king of the pumpkin patch Everyone hail to the Pumpkin King now This is Halloween This is Halloween Halloween, Halloween Halloween, Halloween In this town we call home Everyone hail to the pumpkin song

- La, la, la, la, la, la Halloween, Halloween La, la, la, la, la, la Whee

It's over! We did it!

Wasn't it terrifying? What a night!

Great Halloween, everybody.

I believe it was our most horrible yet. Thank you, everyone.

No! Thanks to you, Jack.

Without your brilliant leadership...

Not at all, Mayor. You're such a scream, Jack.

You're a witch's fondest dream. You made walls fall, Jack.

Walls fall? You made the very mountains crack, Jack.

The deadly nightshade you slipped me wore off, Sally. Let go!

You're not ready for so much excitement. Yes, I am!

You're coming with me! No, I'm not!

Come back here, you foolish...

Oh! Oh! Oh-oh-oh.

Ooh, Jack, you made wounds ooze and flesh crawl.

Thank you. Thank you! Thank you very much!

Hold it. We haven't given out the prizes yet.

Our first award goes to the vampires... for most blood drained in a single evening.

Our second and honorable mention... goes to the fabulous Dark Lagoon leeches.

Nice work, Bone Daddy.

Yeah, I guess so. Just like last year... and the year before that, and the year before that.


There are few who deny at what I do I am the best For my talents are renowned far and wide When it comes to surprises in the moonlit night I excel without ever even trying With the slightest little effort Of my ghost-like charms I have seen grown men give out a shriek With a wave of my hand and a well-placed moan I have swept the very bravest off their feet Yet year after year It's the same routine And I grow so weary of the sound of screams And I, Jack the Pumpkin King Have grown so tired of the same old thing

Oh, somewhere deep Inside of these bones An emptiness Began to grow There's something out there Far from my home A longing that I've never known I'm the master of fright And a demon of light And I'll scare you right out of your pants To a guy in Kentucky I'm Mr. Unlucky And I'm known throughout England and France And since I am dead I can take off my head To recite Shakespearean quotations No animal nor man can scream like I can With the fury of my recitations But who here Would ever understand That the Pumpkin King with the skeleton grin Would tire of his crown If they only understood He'd give it all up If he only could Oh, there's an empty Place in my bones That calls out for Something unknown The fame and praise Come year after year Does nothing for These empty tears

Jack.

I know how you feel.


Sally!

You've come back.

I had to. For this!

Yes. Shall we, then?

That's twice this month you've slipped deadly nightshade into my tea and run off.

Three times. You're mine, you know!

I made you with my own hands.

You can make other creations.

I'm restless. I can't help it.

It's a phase, my dear. It'll pass.

We need to be patient, that's all.

But I don't want to be patient.

No, Zero, not now.

I'm not in the mood.

All right.

Here you go, boy.

Mornin', gents!


Jack, you home?

Jack, I've got the plans for next Halloween.

I need to go over them with you so we can get started.

Jack, please! I'm only an elected official here.

I can't make decisions by myself.

Jack, answer me!

Huh? He's not home.

Where is he? He hasn't been home all night.

Where are we?

It's someplace new!

What is this?


Whoa-oa-oa!

Whoa!


What's this, what's this There's color everywhere What's this There's white things in the air What's this, I can't believe my eyes I must be dreaming Wake up, Jack, this isn't fair What's this

What's this, what's this There's something very wrong What's this, there's people singing songs, what's this The streets are lined with little creatures laughing Everybody seems so happy Have I possibly gone daffy What is this What's this There's children throwing snowballs instead of throwing heads They're busy building toys and absolutely no one's dead There's frost in every window Oh, I can't believe my eyes And in my bones I feel the warmth That's coming from inside Oh, look, what's this They're hanging mistletoe They kiss, why that looks so unique, inspired They're gathering around to hear a story Roasting chestnuts on a fire What's this

What's this in here They've got a little tree, how queer And who would ever think And why They're covering it with tiny little things They've got electric lights on strings and there's a smile on everyone So now correct me if I'm wrong This looks like fun, this looks like fun Oh, could it be I got my wish What's this

Oh my, what now The children are asleep But look There's nothing underneath No ghouls, no witches here to scream and scare them or ensnare them Only little cozy things secure inside their dreamland

What's this The monsters are all missing and the nightmares can't be found And in their place there seems to be good feeling all around Instead of screams, I swear I can hear music in the air The smell of cakes and pies are absolutely everywhere The sights, the sounds they're everywhere and all around I've never felt so good before This empty place inside of me is filling up I simply cannot get enough I want it, oh, I want it Oh, I want it for my own I've got to know, I've got to know what is this place that I have found What is this

Christmas Town?

Hmm.

Ho-ho-ho-ho!

Hmm.

This has never happened before. It's suspicious.

It's peculiar. It's scary.

Stand aside. Coming through.

We've got to find Jack!

There's only 35 days left till next Halloween!

Three sixty-four!

Is there anywhere we've forgotten to check?

I looked in every mausoleum.

We opened the sarcophagi!

I tromped through the pumpkin patch.

I peeked behind the cyclops' eye.

I did! But he wasn't there.

It's time to sound the alarms!


Frog's breath will overpower any odor.

Bitter!

Worm's wart. But where, where is that worm's wart?

Sally? Is that soup ready yet?

Ah. Coming!

Lunch!

Ah, what's that?

Worm's wart! Mmm!

And frog's breath?

Wh-What's wrong? I-I thought you liked frog's breath.

Nothing's more suspicious than frog's breath.

Until you taste it, I won't swallow a spoonful.

I'm not hungry. Oops.

You want me to starve... an old man like me, who hardly has strength as it is.

Me, to whom you owe your very life.

Oh, don't be silly.

Mmm! See? Scrumptious!

Did anyone think to dredge the lake?

Oh, this morning.

Hear that? - Ah, what? - Shh.

Zero!

Jack's back! Jack's back! Jack's back!

Where have you been? Call a town meeting and I'll tell everyone all about it.

When? Immediately!

Town meeting! Town meeting!

Town meeting tonight!

Town meeting! Town meeting tonight!

Listen, everyone!

I want to tell you about Christmas Town.

There were objects so peculiar they were not to be believed All around things to tantalize my brain It's a world unlike anything I've ever seen And as hard as I tried I can't seem to describe Like a most improbable dream But you must believe when I tell you this It's as real as my skull and it does exist Here, let me show you.

Ooh!

This is a thing called a present The whole thing starts with a box

- A box - Is it steel Are there locks

- Is it filled with a pox A pox, how delightful, a pox If you please.

Just a box with bright colored paper And the whole thing's topped with a bow

- A bow - But why - How ugly What's in it, what's in it That's the point of the thing Not to know

- It's a bat - Will it bend It's a rat - Will it break Perhaps it's the head that I found in the lake Listen now You don't understand That's not the point of Christmasland Now pay attention We pick up an oversized sock And hang it like this on the wall Oh, yes, does it still have a foot

- Let me see, let me look Is it rotted and covered with gook Um, let me explain.

There's no foot inside but there's candy

- Or sometimes it's filled with small toys Small toys

- Do they bite - Do they snap - Or explode in the sack Well, perhaps they just spring out and scare girls and boys What a splendid idea This Christmas sounds fun I fully endorse it Let's try it at once Everyone, please Now not so fast There's something here that you don't quite grasp I don't know. Do you get it?

Well, I may as well give them what they want.

And the best I must confess I have saved for the last For the ruler of this Christmasland Is a fearsome king with a deep, mighty voice Least, that's what I've come to understand And I've also heard it told That he's something to behold Like a lobster huge and red When he sets out to slay with his rain gear on Can'ting bulging sacks with his big great arms That is so I've heard it said And on a dark cold night under full moonlight He flies into a fog like a vulture in the sky And they call him Sandy Claws

Well, at least they're excited But they don't understand That special kind of feeling in Christmasland Oh, well.

Hmm.

Hmm.

There's got to be a logical way to explain this Christmas thing.

You've poisoned me for the last time, you wretched girl.

Oh, my head!

The door is open!

Hello! Jack Skellington!

Up here, my boy. Doctor, I need to borrow some equipment.

Is that so? Whatever for?

I'm conducting a series of experiments.

How perfectly marvelous!

Curiosity killed the cat, you know. I know.

Come on into the lab and we'll get you all fixed up.

Hmm. Experiments?

Zero, I'm home!


Interesting reaction! But what does it mean?


You can come out now if you promise to behave.

Sally?

Oh, gone again!

Hmm.


Oh!


Something's up with Jack Something's up with Jack Don't know if we're ever going to get him back

He's all alone up there locked away inside

- Never says a word Hope he hasn't died Something's up with Jack Something's up with Jack

Christmastime is buzzing in my skull Will it let me be I cannot tell There's so many things I cannot grasp When I think I've got it and then at last Through my bony fingers it does slip Like a snowflake in a fiery grip Something here I'm not quite getting Though I try I keep forgetting Like a memory long since past Here in an instant Gone in a flash What does it mean What does it mean In these little bric-a-brac A secret's waiting to be cracked These dolls and toys confuse me so Confound it all, I love it though Simple objects, nothing more But something's hidden through a door Though I do not have the key Something's here I cannot see What does it mean What does it mean What does it mean Hmm. Hmm.

I've read these Christmas books so many times I know the stories and I know the rhymes I know the Christmas carols all by heart My skull's so full it's tearing me apart As often as I've read them Something's wrong It's so hard to put my bony finger on Or perhaps it's really not as deep as I've been led to think Am I trying much too hard Of course I've been too close to see The answer's right in front of me Right in front of me It's simple really, very clear Like music drifting in the air Invisible but everywhere Just because I cannot see it Doesn't mean I can't believe it You know I think this Christmas thing is not as tricky as it seems And why should they have all the fun It should belong to anyone Not anyone in fact, but me Why I can make a Christmas tree And there's no reason I can find I couldn't handle Christmastime I bet I could improve it too And that's exactly what I'll do

Eureka!

This year, Christmas will be ours!

Patience, everyone. Jack has a special job for each of you.

Dr. Beetlestein.

Your Christmas assignment is ready.

Dr. Beetlestein, to the front of the line.

What kind of noise is that for a baby to make?

Perhaps it can be improved? No problem!

I knew it!

Doctor, thank you for coming.

We need some of these.

Hmm.

Their construction should be exceedingly simple, I think.

How horrible our Christmas will be.

No! How jolly!

Oh. How jolly our Christmas will be.

What are you doing here? Jack sent for us.

Specifically. By name.

Lock. - Shock. - Barrel.

Jack, Jack, it's Boogie's boys.

Ah, Halloween's finest trick-or-treaters.

The job I have for you is top secret.

It requires craft, cunning, mischief.

And we thought you didn't like us, Jack.

Absolutely no one is to know about it. Not a soul!

Now.

Tree.

Christmas Town.

Ow! Hmm.

And one more thing.

Leave that no-account Oogie Boogie out of this!

Whatever you say, Jack.

Of course, Jack. Wouldn't dream of it, Jack.

Kidnap Mr. Sandy Claws

- I wanna do it - Let's draw straws Jack said we should work together

- Three of a kind - Birds of a feather - Now and forever La, la, la, la, la, la La, la, la, la, la Kidnap the Sandy Claws Lock him up real tight Throw away the key and then turn off all the lights First we're going to set some bait inside a nasty trap and wait When he comes a-sniffing We will snap the trap and close the gate Wait, I've got a better plan to catch this big red lobster man Let's pop him in a boiling pot And when he's done we'll butter him up Kidnap the Sandy Claws Throw him in a box Bury him for 90 years Then see if he talks And Mr. Oogie Boogie man Can take the whole thing over then He'll be so pleased I do declare That he will cook him rare Whee

I say that we take a cannon Aim it at his door and then Knock three times and when he answers Sandy Claws will be no more You're so stupid Think now if we blow him up to smithereens We may lose some pieces and then Jack will beat us black and green Kidnap the Sandy Claws Tie him in a bag Throw him in the ocean Then see if he is sad Because Mr. Oogie Boogie is the meanest guy around

- If I were on his boogie list I'd get out of town He'll be so pleased by our success That he'll reward us too I'll bet Perhaps he'll make his special brew Of snake and spider stew We're his little henchmen and we take ourjob with pride We do our best to please him and stay on his good side

- I wish my cohorts weren't so dumb I'm not the dumb one

- You're no fun - Shut up - Make me I've got something, listen now This one is real good you'll see We'll send a present to his door Upon there'll be a note to read Now in the box we'll wait and hide until his curiosity Entices him to look inside and then we'll have him one, two, three Kidnap the Sandy Claws Beat him with a stick Lock him up for 90 years See what makes him tick Kidnap the Sandy Claws Chop him into bits Mr. Oogie Boogie is sure to get his kicks Kidnap the Sandy Claws See what we will see Lock him in a cage and then throw away the key

Sandy Claws, huh?

It goes something like this.

How about it? Think you can manage?

A- one, and a-two, and a-three, and a...

Next! Fantastic!

Now, why don't you all practice on that, and we'll be in great shape.

Sally, I need your help more than anyone's.

You certainly do, Jack. I had the most terrible vision.

That's splendid! No! It was about your Christmas.

There was smoke and fire. That's not my Christmas.

My Christmas is filled with laughter and joy.

And this: My Sandy Claws outfit. I want you to make it.

Jack, please listen to me. It's going to be a disaster.

How could it be? Just follow the pattern.

This part's red. The trim is white.

It's a mistake, Jack. Now, don't be modest.

Who else is clever enough to make my Sandy Claws outfit?

Next! I have...

Oh. Every confidence in you.

But it seems wrong to me. Very wrong.

This device is called a nutcracker.

Jack! Jack! We caught 'im! We got 'im!

Perfect! Open it up. Quickly!

That's not Sandy Claws!

It isn't? Who is it?

Bunny! Eek! Ooh.

Not Sandy Claws! Take him back!

We followed your instructions. We went through the door.

Which door? There's more than one.

Sandy Claws is behind the door shaped like this.

I told you!

You knock it off! Get... Ow! Ow!

I'm very sorry for the inconvenience, sir.

Take him home first! And apologize again.

Be careful with Sandy Claws when you fetch him.

Treat him nicely. Got it.

We'll get it right next time.

You will be a decided improvement... over that treacherous Sally.

Master. The plans.

Excellent, Igor.

What? What's goin' on?

This time This time Making Christmas Making Christmas Making Christmas Making Christmas is so fine It's ours this time And won't the children be surprised It's ours this time

Kathleen, Bobby, Susie. Yes, Susie's been nice.

Nice, nice, naughty, nice, nice, nice...

There are hardly any naughty children this year.

Now, who could that be?

Trick or treat! Huh?

Ya!

You don't look like yourself, Jack, not at all.

Isn't that wonderful? It couldn't be more wonderful!

But you're the Pumpkin King!

Not anymore. And I feel so much better now!

Jack, I know you think something's missing, but...

Ow! Sorry.

You're right. Something is missing, but what?

I've got the beard, the coat, the boots, the belt...

Jack, Jack, this time we bagged him. This time we really did!

He sure is big, Jack! And heavy!

Let me out!

Sandy Claws in person! What a pleasure to meet you!

Wh... Why, you have hands!

You don't have claws at all! Wha...

Where am I?

Surprised, aren't you? I knew you would be.

You don't need to have another worry about Christmas this year.

Wha... Well, wha... Wha... Consider this a vacation, Sandy, a reward.

It's your turn to take it easy. B-But there must be some mistake!

See that he's comfortable. Just a second, fellas. Of course!

That's what I'm missing! B-B-but...

Thanks. Y-You just can't...

Hold on. Where are we going now?

Ho, ho, ho! No.

This is worse than I thought. Ho, ho, ho. - Much worse.

Ho, ho, ho! I know.

Me, on vacation? On Christmas Eve?

Where are we taking him? Where?

To Oogie Boogie, of course.

There isn't anywhere in the whole world more comfortable than that.

And Jack said to make him comfortable, didn't he? Yes, he did.

Haven't you heard of peace on earth and goodwill toward men?

No!

Ah! This'll stop Jack.

What a joy to think of all we'll have in common.

We'll have conversations won'th having!

Don't do this!

Naughty children never get any presents!

I think he might be too big! Ooh!

No, he's not. If he can go down a chimney... he can fit down here.


Well, well, well! What have we here?

Sandy Claws, huh? Oooh, I'm really scared!

So you're the one everybody's talkin' about.

You'rejokin' You'rejokin'

I can't believe my eyes You'rejokin'me, you gotta be This can't be the right guy He's ancient, he's ugly I don't know which is worse I might just split a seam now if I don't die laughin' first Mr. Oogie Boogie says there's trouble close at hand You better pay attention now 'cause I'm the boogie man And if you aren't shakin' there's somethin' very wrong

'Cause this may be the last time you hear the boogie song

- Whoa-oh Whoa-oh

- I'm the Oogie Boogie man He's the Oogie Boogie man Release me now or you must face the dire consequences The children are expecting me So please, come to your senses Ah, you'rejokin' You'rejokin'

I can't believe my ears Would someone shut this fella up I'm drownin' in my tears It's funny I'm laughin'

You really are too much And now with your permission I'm going to do my stuff What are you going to do? I'm gonna do the best I can.

Whoa The sound of rolling dice to me is music in the air

'Cause I'm a gamblin' boogie man although I don't play fair It's much more fun I must confess with lives on the line Not mine, of course But yours, old boy Now that'd bejust fine Release me fast or you will have to answer for this heinous act Oh, brother, you're somethin' You put me in a spin You aren't comprehending the position that you're in It's hopeless, you're finished You haven't got a prayer

'Cause I'm Mr. Oogie Boogie And you ain't goin'nowhere


Whoa! It's Jack!

Think of us as you soar triumphantly through the sky... outshining every star... your silhouette a dark blot on the moon.

You, who are our pride.

You, who are our glory.

You, who have frightened millions into an early grave. Ow!

You, who have, uh... devastated the, the souls of the living?

Oh, no! We can't take off in this.

The reindeer can't see an inch in front of their noses. Whew!

This fog's as thick as, as...

Jellied brains. Or thicker!

There go all of my hopes... my precious plans, my glorious dreams.

There goes Christmas.

No, Zero. Down, boy.

My, what a brilliant nose you have!

The better to light my way!

To the head of the team, Zero!

We're off!

Wait, Jack! No!

Ho-ho-ho! Ha-ha-ha-ha-ho!

Good-bye, Jack.

My dearest Jack.

Oh, how I hope my premonition is wrong.

I sense there's something in the wind That feels like tragedy's at hand And though I'd like to stand by him Can't shake this feeling that I have The worst is just around the bend And does he notice My feelings for him And will he see How much he means to me I think it's not to be What will become of my dear friend Where will his actions lead us then Although I'd like to join the crowd In their enthusiastic cloud Try as I may it doesn't last And will we ever End up together No, I think not It's never to become For I am not the one

Ho-ho-ho-ho-ho-ho-ho!

Hee-hee-hee-hee-hee!

Santa!

Santa?

Merry Christmas! And what is your name?

Uh, uh, uh, uh... That's all right.

I have a special present for you anyway. There you go, sonny.

Ho-ho-ho-ho! Hee-hee-hee-hee-hee!

And what did Santa bring you, honey?

Merry Christmas!

Hello. Police.

Attacked by Christmas toys? That's strange. That's the second toy complaint we've had.

Oh! Ha-ha-ha-ha, ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!

Oh! Ha-ha-ha-ha, ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!


Huh?

Oh, wait!

Whoa! Help! Help!


You're welcome, one and all!

Where'd you spot him? Fast as we can, ma'am.

Police. I know. I know. A skeleton. Keep calm.

Turn off all the lights. Make sure the doors are locked. Hello. Police.

Reports are pouring in from all over the globe... that an impostor is shamelessly impersonating Santa Claus... mocking and mangling this joyous holiday.

Authorities assure us that at this moment... military units are mobilizing to stop the perpetrator of this heinous crime.

- Jack! Someone has to help Jack. Wherever you are...

- Where'd they take that Sandy Claws? Come back and save Christmas.

Look, Zero, searchlights!

They're celebrating!

They're thanking us for doing such a good job.

Whoa! Careful down there. You almost hit us!

It's okay, Zero. Head higher.

Are you a gamblin' man, Sandy?

Let's play. Hmm?

My, my! What have we here?

I'll get you out of here.

Ah. Lovely.

Tickle, tickle, tickle. Uh, tickle, tickle, tickle.

Tickle, tickle, tickle. Tickle, tickle, tickle.

What? You try to make a dupe out of me!

Oh!

Who's next on my list?

Ah, little Harry and Jordan. Won't they be surprised?

They're trying to hit us. Zero!

Merry Christmas to all... and to all a good night!

I knew this Christmas thing was a bad idea.

I felt it in my gut.

Terrible news, folks.

The worst tragedy of our times.

Jack has been blown to smithereens!

Terrible, terrible news!

Attention. Attention, citizens.

Terrible news. There's still no sign of Santa Claus.

Although the impostor has been shot down... it looks like Christmas will have to be cancelled this year.

I repeat, the impostor has been shot down... but there's still no sign yet of Santa.

What have I done How could I Be so blind All is lost Where was I Spoiled all Everything's Gone all wrong What have I done Find a deep cave to hide in In a million years They'll find me only dust And a plaque that reads Here lies poor old Jack But I never intended all this madness Never And nobody really understood Well, how could they That all I ever wanted was to bring them something great Why does nothing ever turn out like it should Well, what the heck I went and did my best And by God I really tasted something swell And for a moment why, I even touched the sky And at least I left some stories they can tell, I did And for the first time since I don't remember when I felt just like my old bony self again And I, Jack The Pumpkin King That's right, I am the Pumpkin King Ha-ha-ha-ha And I just can't wait until next Halloween

'Cause I've got some new ideas that will really make them scream And by god I'm really going to give it all my might Uh-oh. I hope there's still time... to set things right.

Sandy Claws! Hmm.

You wait till Jack hears about this!

By the time he's through with you, you'll be lucky if you...

The King of Halloween... has been blown to smithereens.

Skeleton Jack is now a pile of dust.

Come on, Zero. Christmas isn't over yet.

What's that you said about luck, rag doll?

Help! Help! Help!

Shh.

Looks like it's Oogie's turn to boogie now.

Help! One, two, three... four, five, six, seven.

Help!

Ashes to ashes, and dust to dust.

Oh, I'm feeling weak with hunger!

One more roll of the dice oughta do it.

What? Snake eyes?

Eleven!

Looks like I won the jackpot!

Bye-bye, doll face and sandman.

What the...

Hello, Oogie. J-J-J-Jack!

But they said you were dead. You must be double dead!

Oh!

Well, come on, bone man!

Ooh-hoo-hoo-hoo! Ha!

Fire!

Hmm. Ooh-ooh-ooh!

Jack, look out!

So long, Jack.

How dare you treat my friends so shamefully!

Now look what you've done!

My bugs! My bugs!

My bugs! My bugs! My bugs!

My bugs! My bugs!

Forgive me, Mr. Claws.

I'm afraid I've made a terrible mess of your holiday.

Bumpy sleigh ride, Jack?

The next time you get the urge to take over someone else's holiday, I'd listen to her.

She's the only one who makes any sense around this insane asylum.

Skeletons! Boogie men! Ooh. I hope there's still time.

To fix Christmas? Of course there is!

I'm Santa Claus.
