Those are the most pathetic scares That have ever embarrassed a teacher In the history of monsterdom. Now, who's next? Oblina? Dear, sweet monster. You have a scare that will make your old gromble proud Don't you?

Oblina: Well, I....

Ickis: Was it something I said?

[Later on]

Gromble: Isn't it lovely, Oblina?

Oblina: Thank you, sir.

Oblina: Humiliation! She goes out of her way to embarrassed me!

Ickis: You got to admit, she does know her way around to scare.

Oblina: Scaring with you? That would be delightful. Yes, of course, I would, I would.

Smeldra: Okay. See you tomorrow.

[Oblina laughs maniacally.]

Ickis: What are you talking about?

Oblina: This so-called invitation to go scaring. It's a challenging. She's calling me out.

Oblina: You must be kidding. I did that years ago. Boring! How about something fun, something challenging?

Slemdra: Like what?
