    • Sam: I've been saving this story for a long time. And I think tonight's the best night to tell it. It's a story about illusion and and deception. Some things may look familiar but they could be hiding a secret that you'd never expect. It could be beautiful or mysterious or, like in my story, something evil. Submitted for the approval of the Midnight Society, I call this story...The Tale of the Night Shift.

    • Vampire: (dangling Amanda over a ledge) I should drop you and lick up what's left.

      Colin: Not anymore. He's like really dead!

    • Jack: Is that a body? Amanda: No, it's a pinball machine!
