      • [Opening wraparound segment with the Crypt Keeper cooking.]
        The Crypt Keeper: Eye of newt, bladder of cobra, and whisker of a rat. Oh, hi, kiddies. I was just rustling up a sickening snack for a ghastly guest. [laughs] Let's see...I need the blood of a sacrificed goat. [a goat below bleats] Whoops. It's got to be a virgin goat. Guess you're off the hook, nelly. [laughs] Tonight's story is about a different kind of sacrifice. A sacrifice made for love. [laughs]

        [Closing wraparound segment.]
        The Crypt Keeper: Excuse me, kiddies. I'll be with you in a moment. [hangs himself] So this is suicide? Aww...somehow I thought it would have more punch. Oh well. At least Jim's big finish had a bright side. I hate to see a guy throw his life away without some dame getting a laugh out of it. So remember, if your lady's evenings are all booked up, do what I do: [cuts himself free] Drop her.
