    • [Opening wraparound segment with the Crypt Keeper re-hearse-ing for his theatre's groups version of A Streetcar Named Desire.]
      The Crypt Keeper: Stella...Stella!! Oh, hello plague-goers! I was just re-hearse-ing with my little theatre group. I just love the slime light! For tonight's dreary drama, I thought we'd try an experimental piece, about a retired drag racer who's afraid of getting to the finish line a little sooner than he wants. I call this nasty nugget, "King of the Road".

      [Closing wraparound segment.]
      The Crypt Keeper: Well, that certainly gives new meaning to the term "burn rubber." [laughs] As for me, I've got to back to work. The group has decided to do something classical. We're trying to choose between A Midsummer Night's Scream and Ghoulius Caeser. [laughs] Care to watch from hackstage? [laughs] You know what they say, kiddies: the slay's the thing. [laughs]
