Creepie Meets Tarantula Boy
- In this episode, Vinnie talks like he is Dracula. But in the rest of the episodes, his voice changes.
Mother, proud, strong, beautiful Mother
See what you want-grab it
Bite its head off-snap in your powerful jaws
Crunching limbs, torso
Victim, helpless as its life drains
Crunching, crunching, crunching
Eyes glowing the hunger never satisfied
Chris-Alice: (when she sees a stuffed bunny) Oh. My. Gosh! Isn't that rabbit the cutest?
Creepie: For a large, fake stuffed rodent? Absolutely.
Chris-Alice: And after we ride the Ferris Wheel, let's get all shook up on the salt and pepper shakers.
Creepie: That's a good thing right?
Mrs. Monseratte: I here there is a stomach bug going around.
Creepie: Oh. You mean Uncle Bert.
Creepie: (while Mrs. Monseratte is hugging her) I can't breathe.
Caroleena: You've reached the Creecher residents. For maggots, press 1, for larvae, press 2, all other callers press 3. Have a delicious day.
Budge: (reading poem) Oh to be five again. When momma said good night. Snuggled in her cozy arms, everything felt right.
Budge: Into her loving eyes that glowed so warm and bright. And after she closed the door, her smile was my night light.
Dr. Pappas: Very touching indeed Mr. Bentley.
(Gnat falls over and pretends to gag)
Creepie: (to Gnat) Gnat, you're such a pest.
Dr. Pappas: (sobbing) I REALLY must call my own mother one of these years. (yelling) NEXT!
Mrs. Monseratte: Creepie Creecher. Student ID number 24601. Dr. Pappas asked me to read this...poem of yours and I have to say that I agree with his assessment that it is more than a little alarming.
Creepie: Thank you.
Mrs. Monseratte: A responsible educator can never be too careful with the delicate psyche of the emerging adolescents. (shreds paper) So, I would like to administer a little test to get to know you better.
Creepie: Test? I didn't study for any test.
Mrs. Monseratte: No no no no no no no child. This is not a test you study for. It is what we call "Creative Visualization".
(Creepie automatically appears in the chair)
Mrs Monseratte: Just sit back and relax. Now, tell me the first thing that comes to your mind.
Creepie: (to each different card) A muring fly, a mosquito sucking blood, head lice, spider web, deer tick, stink bug, host, fire ant, two cockroaches fighting over a hunk of rotting meat.
Mrs. Monseratte: Very interesting. Thank you Creepie. You may go now.
- The following appear to be quotes from "Creepie Meets Tarantula Boy" and will need to be moved there.
Tarantula Boy: I didn't mean to scare her. What about you? You don't seem scared.
Creepie: Why should I be? Your venom is relativly nontoxic to humans.
Creepie: I'm Creepie and this is my friend Chris-Alice. Tarantula Boy: Nice to meet you.
Ring Master: (to the audience) Please refrain from screaming and fainting as it only enrages the exotic, dangerous, dynamic mistake of mother nature.
Ring Master: Tarantula Boy! We have another show in five minutes. Tell your friends to buy a ticket or take a hike.
Bugs: Creepie's home!
Pauly: (on Creepie's shoulder) How'd it go today Creepie? (eats a caterpillar)
Caroleena: Pauly, don't talk with caterpillar in your mouth.
Pauly: Sorry, mom.
Vinnie: So, did everybody dig your Mother's Day poem?
Creepie Huh. Yeah. It was a real scream.
Vinnie: (to Caroleena) Aw. She takes after you. Love bug.
Caroleena: (to Creepie) I am so proud of you.
Pauly: We have a real poet in the family. Group hug.
(all the bug crawl on Creepie)
Pauly: (after he and Gnat swallow all the cotton candy) That was disgusting. Let's do it again.
Creepie: (to Tarantula boy) Do you really regurgitate stomach acids on your prey before you suck them up?
Mrs. Monsteratte believes Creepie is going to commit suicide when she see her near the gym ceiling freeing gnat from a fly trap.
