    • [Opening wraparound segment with the Crypt Keeper being stretched.]
      The Crypt Keeper: Yes...that's better. Oh, hello boars and ghouls. I hope you'll excuse me if I don't get up. I'm a little stiff today. Then again, I'm a little stiff everyday! [laughs] Actually, I twisted my neck while playing croak-et, but it wasn't hurting the way I thought it should, so I called my chiro-hacktor. Of course, some people look elsewhere for their pain. Like the old man in tonight's terror tale. His idea of an anti-die-otic waas to marry a younger woman. [laughs and groans] Ah...I call this plasma play, 'Strung Along'.

      [Closing wraparound segment with the Crypt Keeper in a guillotine]
      The Crypt Keeper: Well, Koko may have been the puppet, but in the end, Joseph was the one who paid for marionette. [laughs] As for me, kiddies, it seems my pain in the neck was more serious than I though. But I'm almost finished with my scare-opy. [laughs] One more adjustment, and I'll be out of here. Any time you're ready, bones. [guillotine cuts the Crypt Keeper's head off; CK laughs] Now that's what I call pain in full! [laughs]
