  • Quotes

    • [Opening wraparound segment with The Crypt Keeper as an astronaut.]
      Voice on Radio: Roger, t-minus 30 seconds and counting.
      The Cryptkeeper: Hmmmmm, let's see, one small step for man, one giant....oh, hello, scar-gazers! You're just in time. My skeleton crew and I are about to blast off for a little space hacksploration. Care to join us? Good. I hope you're made of the rot stuff, 'cause we'll be heading fright years from terror firma, boldly going where no ghoul has gaunt before! [to skeleton co-pilot] Hey, pal, watch the suit or you're launch meat....which is kind of like the man in tonight's tale. He's going places, too, except his destination is a little more earth-bound. It's a nasty bit of scare-o-dynamics I call "Horror in the Night".

      [Closing wraparound segment with The Crypt Keeper as an astronaut.]
      The Cryptkeeper: Poor Nick. Perhaps if he had had reservations, he wouldn't have checked in. Maybe next time he bumps into the girl of his screams, he'll expect her. [laughs, control panel of shuttle beeps and flashes]
      Computer voice: Begin launch sequence.
      The Cryptkeeper: Gotta go, creeps. [sits back in seat]
      Computer voice: ....two, one. [skeleton co-pilot's chest explodes and his head launches upward]
      The Cryptkeeper: Wow! What a NASA-cre! [laughs]
