Halloween, Repeat

The first doorbell.
– – What have we here?
– – Trick-or-treat… Trick-or-treat… Trick-or…
– – Now you’re a…
– – Witch.
– – And you must be ghost. And…
– – I’m a princess.
– – I can see that… And you’re a knight, right?
– – Right.
– – And in the back there… I can’t really tell… You’re a…
– – Groundhog.

The third doorbell.
– – Trick-or-treat… Trick-or…
– – Well, let’s see what’s on the front porch now. You’re a clown… And you’re a pirate…
– – I’m a girl pirate.
– – Oh, I see… You’ve both got eye patches… And tell me who you are?
– – I’m from outer space.
– – And in the very back, you’re out of the light.
– – I’m a groundhog.

A number of bells later.
– – Trick-or-treat, everyone… Just one or two candies each now.
– – Trick-or-treat… Trick…
– – Just tell me who you all are.
– – I’m a turtle.
– – I’m a policewoman.
– – I’m a farmer.
– – And I’m his cow.
– – And in the back, there… You’re a groundhog, right?

Later.
– – Okay, kids, were running a little low… Take one or two…
– – Trick-or-treat…
– – Just one or two, Mr. Skeleton.
– – I’m a girl.
– – Sorry, Mrs. Skeleton… And one or two for the lion… And you back there.
– – I’m a groundhog.
– – Right.

Last of the night.
– – Okay, that’s it, kids.
– – Trick-or-treat…
– – I know, trick-or-treat… But this is the last of the treats… Easy there, Miss Caterpillar.
– – You don’t have any chocolate bars?
– – All I’ve got is what’s left there in the bowl… And, one thing?
– – Yes?
– – No, not you… Groundhog, there. Did my husband happen to put you up to this?
– – How do you mean, your husband?
– – He’s a Tyrannosaurus. I mean, he’s in a T Rex costume. He was out with a little Robin Hood and Cinderella… He’s got a thing about Groundhog Day.
– – I don’t know… There’s a lot of Tyrannosauruses out there…
