Goliath and Brooklyn have arrived at a spooky house on Halloween, having received a message to meet Elisa at the address. They suspect it is a trap, probably by Quarrymen, but nevertheless enter the house. They are both on edge, and Brooklyn is scared first by a laughing jack o'lantern, then by spider webs that fall on him. They hear what sounds like Hudson screaming, and rush to the source, only to find all of their friends (the clan, Elisa, and the Xanatoses) holding a Halloween party.
Many characters are in costume for Halloween, including:
- Angela as Snow White
- Fox as Pocahontas
- Alexander Fox Xanatos as Meeko (from Pocahontas)
- Broadway as a pirate
