triangle Script

Good evening. Our Haunted History tour will begin when the clock strikes

And that's why in mid-1990s they replaced every carpet in the building. Remember, children: mold is the silent killer.
Excuse me, my mom just texted me. I have to go.
Yeah, his mom said I have to go, too.
Yeah, you know, me too.
Hey, wait!
Come on, Oscar! You promised that we would have some fun.
We will. I'll talk to Felix. Felix? Felix? Ebenezer?
We gotta speed things along. These kids are getting bored.
Bored? Or entertained into silence?
It's Halloween, all we want is candy! I mean all they want is candy.
And they're going to get it. The 17th clue is the combination that unlocks this briefcase full of candy.
You've been holding out on us?!
Give it!
No, no.
Give it!
Man, those Pilates are really paying off.
Thank you, thank you very much. But you're not getting the candy! Stop being so immature.
You stop being so lame! We're going to lose these kids!
Oh crap, I've already lost one! Evan! Evan!
Evan! Have you seen a chimpbot?
I'm a T Rex!
Do you know how questions work?
There you are, buddy. Listen, we gotta stick together. Let's go back to my apartment and regroup. We've got a ton of candy over there.
There's a chimpbot.
There's a reason you're extinct.

Candy is right there, help yourself. Evan ditched me. I thought I lost him for a second.
That would have been bad. He's Charlotte's only kid.
You're not Evan! Why are you in his costume?
This is my back-up.
Why didn't you tell me when I kept calling you Evan!
You promised me candy and I rolled with it.
Teddy, stop drinking alone and help me find Evan!
I'm going to start in the lobby.
I'll start at the penthouse and work down.
I'll just hang back here. My dogs are barking.
Oh, great.

I lost a human, a whole human!
Well that's an ego boost.
I didn't think you'd be home so soon.
I was able to duck out early, so the three of us could go trick-or-treating.
Oh, you really didn't have to do that. You really, really didn't have to. Okay, here's the thing. Evan... is right there!
Yeah, Oscar, right here where you dropped me off. I told my mom you did a great job watching me.
I'm glad it went well.
Yes. It went well. I'm going to leave now.
Well, thanks for doing such a good job watching him.
I didn't do a good job watching him. He ran away!
I've been looking all over the building for you! You scared the hell out of me! Look, I'm sweating even more than usual!
Is this true, Evan?
He is pretty sweaty. Sorry. He wasn't any fun.
Oh, I was no fun? You want to see me being no fun? How about no food for a month?
Might be a little much.
Yeah, you're right, it's my first time. No Chimpocalypse for a month.
That sounds fair.
No, it doesn't. Man, Oscar, you're so mean!
It's not easy, is it?
No, how do you do this parenting thing 24/7?
Wine helps.
But you know what? You handled that really well.
You think?
Very mature. And that's quite a sacrifice for you, no Chimpocalypse for a month?
No, that was for Evan. He ran away, not me.
I gotta say, Oscar, seeing you step up like you did there was pretty sexy. You want that candy don't you?
Yeah, I really do.
