ME: Coming, coming, hang on a sec!
KIDS: Trick or Treat!!!
ME: Oh, hey, you guys look great! You're costumes are great! Look at

princess and a witch too! Ha ha ha! You guys are so cute, here,
here, take some candy!
ZOMBIE: Thank you
WITCH: Thank you, Mr. Burbank!
ME: Okay, okay, you guys have a great time, be careful out there,
okay? Happy Halloween! Bye!
Okay, not bad, not bad at all, nice little group. First group of the
night. Love Halloween. Looooove Halloween. Kid with the blood mask
could have tried a little harder, but what are you gonna do?
Okay, okay, here I come!
KIDS: TRICK OR TREAT!!!
ME: WOW! WOW! You guys are AWESOME! Look at all of you! Good effort!
Excellent! Woah, Spaceman, I like it! Did you make that? Did your
mom make that? That is awesome! You guys all look fantastic! Here,

guys are great!
ME: You are an AWESOME LION!
ME: Yeah, you too, you too! Okay, okay, great, great, happy
Halloween guys, be safe, okay? Bye! Bye!
Man. Those guys were great. Those costumes looked like a lot of
work. Not as good as my girls, but close. I hope the girls are
having a good time. Their costumes are so great. My wife worked so
hard on those costumes. Wish I could have gone with 'em, but
somebody has toŚ
Oh, hey, coming! Hang on, hang on!
KIDS: Trick or
ME: Oh, hey, you brought the baby out! Look at that, look at you,
look at you! You are such a cute little, what, what, you're what, a
flower? Sure! Sure! You're a flower! A-boog-a-boog-a-boog-ah!
Who's a cute little flower? Who is? Who is? YOU ARE! YOU ARE A CUTE
LITTLE FLOWER! AWESOME! No, take more than that, take more, what the
hell, right? Happy Halloween! Happy Halloween! Okay bye!! Bye!! Be
safe now! Bye!!
That was one cute baby. One cute ass baby. Think I scared it though.
I got excited. I got all up in her baby grill. I don't know, maybe
she was crying about something else. I gotta calm down. I should not
have taken all that cough syrup. You are not supposed to take that
stuff with alcohol. Halloween is weird enough.
KIDS: Trick or Treat!!
ME: OH! Wow! You guys are kind of creepy! You're giving me the
willies. Here, have some candy.
BLOODY MASK KID: Do you know who we are?
ME: No, actually... not with those masks on. Are you... one of the Johnson's... No, no, their kids are way too old.
BLOODY MASK KID: You don't know who we are!
ME: You look great, though, very spooky, take some candy. Happy
BLOODY MASK KID: Thank you Mr. Burbank.
ME: Okay, be safe now... look out for cars...
Huh. He knew who I was. That green skull kid didn't say anything.
That was actually kind of creepy. Little freeloader. Who the hell
does he think heŚ
COMING,COMING, HOLD YOUR WATER, I'M COMING!
KIDS: Trick or treat!
ME: Oh, hey, hi, Happy Halloween, you're... Nikki, right? You're in
my daughter's class! Great witch Costume! Who's this, Darth Vader?
Is he your boy friend?
ME: Oh... Sorry. Here, have some candy. Happy Halloween. Look, I
didn't... It's just, you know, with the mask on, I have no idea who
that kid even is, I didn't mean... I mean for all I know you're
another girl, right, Darth? Right? I can't tell.
WITCH: Happy Halloween Mr. Burbank. Say hi to Cordelia for me.
ME: Okay! Okay! Right! I'll do that! Have a good Halloween kids! Be
safe! You don't have a grown-up with you so look after each other!
Not that anything bad is going to happen!
Jesus. I gotta get a hold of myself. What the hell? 'Is that your
boyfriend?' God, I am so uncool. And that Darth Vader kid didn't say
anything. First the Green Skull doesn't say anything, now Darth
Vader. What does that mean? Oh my God, I said that Darth Vader kid
could have been a girl. What if Nikki thinks I mean she's into
girls? Christ, what if she tells her mom I said she was a lesbian?
SHIT! Okay, okay, you didn't actually call her a Lesbian, she isn't
going to think that, she's just a little.
CHRIST, CAN YOU JUST HANG ON A SECOND!
KIDS: TRICK OR TREAT!!!
ME: OH, HEY, WOW, LOOK AT YOU GUYS!! I'm not totally sure what all
of you are but you all look great!
WONDER WOMAN: I'm Wonder Woman.
ME: No you're not.
WONDER WOMAN: Yes I am.
ME: Well, okay, generally, but the colors are totally wrong... Have
some candy! Happy Halloween! It's okay, it's okay, you can be Wonder
Woman going trick or treating, and she, like, changed the read and
blue parts of her costume for black to be spooky! Right? Right?
Here, take some candy, take some okay good bye! Be safe! Be safe out
there, it's dark, you're just kids and everybody knows kids are out
by themselves in the dark, I mean I'm sure it's fine, I'm sure the
cops are thinking along the same lines I am so they must be out in
force, just, if you hang on a sec I think I might have some
reflective tape somewhere, your costumes are so dark and... and...
OKAY GOODBYE! HAPPY HALLOWEEN! GREAT COSTUMES!! Bye!!... Bye...
I gotta maintain... I'm totally letting this get away from me. This
is nothing to get so wigged out about. It's just Halloween. That's
all. Just kids. Man, and I was so worried this was going to be
boring, staying home and handing out candy. It probably wouldn't
have been boring even if I hadn't done anything before hand to make
it less boring. That's okay, though, that's okay, I know how to
handle this, no one has to know, no one can tell. No big deal.
Smooth sailing. Smooooooth sailing.
Okay. Maintain. Maintain.
Oh... I get it... you're all... dogs... dressed as... ghosts. So
that's your costumes... you're... Ghost Dogs... that's clever...
Have some candy... dogs.
Okay. Okay. Happy Halloween. Have a good time. Be safe. I'm shutting
my door now...
That was just kids. That was just kids, that's all. Just kids. Kids
were there and it looked like dogs, that's all. 'Cause of their good
costumes. You got through it. No big deal. No big
OH JESUS OH JESUS, WHAT, WHAT, WHAT?! Okay... Okay, I'm coming...
no... no... you go away... I am not going to give you any of my
candy... you get the hell away from here... GO!!
I wonder who I just said that to? That was horrible. That was too
much. That was so damn horrible. I should never have taken those
pills. This is so out of control.
KIDS: TRICK OR TREAT!!! TRICK OR TREAT!!! TRICK OR TREAT!!!
ME: NOOOOO!! NOOOOO!! TOO MANY OF YOU!!! TOO MANY OF YOU!!!
WIZARD: What the hell?
COWBOY: Mr. Burbank?
CHINESE GIRL: Oh my god, Cordelia's dad is drunk!
ME: YOU WISH DRUNK IS ALL I WAS, YOU LITTLE GEISHA BITCH!! YOU
ME: BE CAREFUL OUT THERE!! THERE'S MURDERERS EVERYWHERE! IT'S LIKE A
SMORGASBORD FOR KILLERS! You shouldn't be out at all... at night...
Oh God, oh God... this is bad... I'm totally out of candy... I hope
I didn't eat it... I hope this is chocolate on my hands... What the
hell am I going to give the next group of kids?... I think I have
some boiled chicken here somewhere... here it is...
Coming, coming, I hope you like chicken!
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The late Frank Silva
was working as a set dresser on "Twin Peaks" in 1990 when
director David Lynch caught a glimpse of him reflected in a mirror.
The image of Silva crouching at the foot of Laura Palmers bed was so
captivating, Lynch invented the evil spirit Bob on the spot.
Leland Palmer's body may have killed his daughter, but Bob was in the
driver's seat. Sadly, Frank Silva succumbed to AIDS in 1995.
