Quotes Edit

  • Crypt Keeper: "I want to suck..." Oh, hello kiddies. You caught me in the middle of my homework. Your old pal the Crypt Keeper's a real believer in continuing dead-ucation. Which brings us to tonight's murderous morsel. It's a juicy little tale about a real blood sucker who never learned to go for the jugular. I call this plasma play "The Reluctant Vampire".
  • Crypt Keeper: Gotta get back to work. Exams, you know. I hear the final's a real pain in the neck. Not that I'm worried or anything. So far, all my marks have been perfect.
