Allen Colby: Ah..Carlotta!

Lady Tiny: The Great Lady Tiny says bring it on!

Allen Colby: A “kin” from my film!

Gentleman in black tie: Be wary of Carlotta’s short wave apparatus, Allen!

Allen Colby: It’s on its way, Lady Tiny!

Carlotta: I feel that this will be a fun night. The spirits say so.

Allen Colby: Yes, Gentlemen…do NOT touch those contacts!

Lady Tiny: My feet already hurt…

Sgt. Reynolds: So do Carlotta and Eve share a party line?

Allen Colby: I still think I should adjust that clock over in the corner….

Allen Colby: No….maybe not….

Gentleman in black tie: Perhaps I may procure a foot bath for Ms. Tiny?

Kashimo!: <pssssst> Cued!

Lady Tiny: You are truly a gentleman!

Eve Cairo: We should share a party line!

Gentleman in black tie: Mr. Colby. I was walking down the street one day.

Carlotta: Yes I agree Miss Cairo

Allen Colby: Make sure to use SIDE B!

Lady Tiny: I am always on Side B

Gentleman in black tie: I might ask, with trepidation, “Does anyone really know what time it is?”

Lady Tiny: Does anyone really Care?

Carlotta: lol

Eve Cairo: does anybody really care?

Sgt. Reynolds: Don’t worry Miss Tiny I can run you over to the beach on my motorcycle.

Carlotta: The spirits will guide us.

Gentleman in black tie: Ladies. We are, perhaps, dating ourselves.

Allen Colby: We care, Miss cairo!

Sgt. Reynolds: Yes Black tie. But it’s only that time in my time zone.

Lady Tiny: We date ourselves because no one else will date us

Carlotta: lol

Allen Colby: Good one, Lady Tiny!

Gentleman in black tie: I see. I’ll just tidy up the drawing room.

Allen Colby: “Four Minures….”

Allen Colby: Smelly!

Lady Tiny: Most men are too short for me. I like em big.

Allen Colby: Manures….

Sgt. Reynolds: Just enough time to search the room for attacking capes.

Allen Colby: The spirits say….”THREE minutes…..”

Sgt. Reynolds: Hi Granelle

Gravelle: Good evening everyone!

Lady Tiny: Sing aay Gravelle!

Kashimo!: Hello, Gravelle!

Allen Colby: And….the great GRAVELLe has arrived…and, will he “sing tonight’?

Carlotta: Hi Gravelle

Gravelle: Gravelle has larengitis

Lady Tiny: Blushinfg is good!

Gentleman in black tie: Ah! Mi accorda!

Allen Colby: “Sing-Sing.”

Lady Tiny: Death: you are so slimy.

Allen Colby: Gravelle, that’s right up your musical range, i believe!

Gentleman in black tie: Kashimo: Diligent but inept

Allen Colby: Death can be, Lady tiny!


Gentleman in black tie: Perhaps not an ideal can operator

Allen Colby: SHOTS!!!

Gentleman in black tie: Death, be a Lady?

Lady Tiny: Bang Bang

Sgt. Reynolds: An escape? To my motorcycle!

Gravelle: Nevermind the people across the street where the cops were shooting

Gentleman in black tie: Chamber of Horrors. Marriage.

Allen Colby: Phil and Mrs. Phil….I missed your arrival….welcome to our night of fright!

Lady Tiny: Gravelle, you need to do your thing and do them in.

Kashimo!: Mr is Mrs & vise versa?

Phil & Mrs Phil: Oh, that’s right! We’re doing the Halloween thing. Dang, I forgot all about it.

Gentleman in black tie: Perhaps the Phils are disguised as Mike n Rachel???

Eve Cairo: Ha!

Gentleman in black tie: Bwaaaahhh

Gravelle: Now did I ever actually kill anyone?

Phil & Mrs Phil: What’s our time, please?

Lady Tiny: I wonder what the Phils thought when they saw all these weird names! And if I remember correctly, they did the same thing last year???

Allen Colby: Well…you came as two Chan Family Members!

Gentleman in black tie: No, Gravelle. Just a couple of mediocre arias.

Allen Colby: That works!

Allen Colby: 🙂

Phil & Mrs Phil: Yes yes yes, I did the same thing last year.

Gravelle: Who are you calling mediocre?

Allen Colby: Willie Fern.

Gravelle: They were great!

Lady Tiny: Sake sake sake!

Sgt. Reynolds: Doe the Cream Crime Museum have a Crème Crime Commission?

Eve Cairo: chip off chopstick

Phil & Mrs Phil: Yes, and it’s the de la Creme

Allen Colby: Lady Tiny, that might be something for Kashimo!

Sgt. Reynolds: Thank you Tiny, but I’m on duty. Back to the beach.

Gentleman in black tie: How much Créme would a Creme Crime Creme if a Creme Crime would Cream Crime?

Phil & Mrs Phil: Hey, they go on at 8:15 too – just like us.

Allen Colby: Ladies…please forgive Mr. Chan for being from 1940….

Allen Colby: “Come clean…”

Allen Colby: A good title for a Laurel and Hardy movie!

Gentleman in black tie: Come clean?

Lady Tiny: I can’t stand it!!! No one should be named “Cream.”

Phil & Mrs Phil: Or “Come crean” if you’re CC

Gentleman in black tie: Definitely, P&MP

Lady Tiny: Shiny coat

Allen Colby: I believe I caught a glimpse of you on a beach….

Eve Cairo: I just wish I was as cool as that cigarette holder

Lady Tiny: Yes Eve

Gentleman in black tie: She is sooo cool.

Sgt. Reynolds: Well I can’t say I like driving on the beach in the rain. I best check out the museum.

Allen Colby: Pull up a chair to our table of ghoulish spirits…

Man in white t-shirt: And – as rapidly as I arrived, I must leave. Packing the car. Will catch up with this fun crowd next week.

Gentleman in black tie: EEEEEEEEE

Eve Cairo: true!

Gravelle: I promise not to look

Gentleman in black tie: too late…

Gravelle: ugh

Gentleman in black tie: I KNEW I should have got those boxers

Allen Colby: “Knock, knock”

Sgt. Reynolds: Fortunatly a gentleman doesn’t dress and tell.

Sgt. Reynolds: “Who’s there?”

Allen Colby: Jimmy nearly got it!

Gentleman in black tie: It’s all about the garters, Sgt.

Lady Tiny: This is actually a spooky movie!

Carlotta: lots of thunder

Gentleman in black tie: It’s a perfect combination of Chan, film noir and comedy

Allen Colby: “McBirney.”

Sgt. Reynolds: Don’t worry Tiny I don’t just protect women in swimsuits at the beach. Only mostly:)

Gravelle: I’m surprised they didn’t here Jimmy yell

Gentleman in black tie: Wow. She is cute.

Allen Colby: yes, Gravelle!

Lady Tiny: Sgt. Reynolds, I m ay have to report you

Allen Colby: Tom “Spiro” Agnew.

Gentleman in black tie: Bluebeard of Paris.

Sgt. Reynolds: I’ll put your report in my report. Kashimo make note.

Gentleman in black tie: Arrested in 1919.

Gentleman in black tie: “Mr. Chan. Ich bin hier.”

Allen Colby: Gentleman, he’d be lost in the kaliedescope of hair colors today!

Gentleman in black tie: Rock? “I AM A ROCK. I am an island…”

Allen Colby: 🙂

Lady Tiny: Are we singing again?

Sgt. Reynolds: Rock and Roll

Gravelle: I only sing opera

Allen Colby: Law firm.

Lady Tiny: Why is she biting her hand?

Gentleman in black tie: Yes, Lady T. This movie is lame in terms of musical score. Sort of an audience participation event…

Allen Colby: Tending to a small wound.

Lady Tiny: Yes, we provide our own music!

Eve Cairo: “just a scratch”

Gentleman in black tie: *raises eyebrows seductively* “It’s just a little blood, Mr. Chan”

Allen Colby: Von Brom has the proverbial light bulb go off!

Sgt. Reynolds: Well he did play a werewolf.

Gentleman in black tie: Yes, Ms. Cairo. Perhaps one could probe beyond the ‘scratch?’

Lady Tiny: Painful memories…I have these…from all the times I was nearly stepped on by tall people.

Gentleman in black tie: You are among friends now, Lady Tiny.

Sgt. Reynolds: Is that what got you into being such a talented dancer Tiny?

Eve Cairo: absolutely!

Lady Tiny: I always have to look up!

Allen Colby: The new warden.

Allen Colby: 8:18…

Allen Colby: 8:19…

Gentleman in black tie: Won’t that plastic thing melt if he throws the switch?

Allen Colby: We shall see….

Allen Colby: Marshmallows, anyone?

Lady Tiny: …lights?

Phil & Mrs Phil: Out go the lights

Gentleman in black tie: bzzzt, fzzzt, *melt* frrzzt, *fumes*

Kashimo!: Whats that smell?

Lady Tiny: fall already

Allen Colby: He fell.

Kashimo!: psssst…<tin can>

Phil & Mrs Phil: cue the can

Allen Colby: Thank you, Kashimo!

Allen Colby: Well done!

Gentleman in black tie: Very bad form to have marshmellow roast at execution.

Lady Tiny: So that’s where the music went

Gentleman in black tie: …but clearly worst aspect of lethal injection…

Allen Colby: yes, by why waste all that electricity?

Allen Colby: (but)

Lady Tiny: darts, again. How many real dart murders there ave bene?

Allen Colby: Oh, those Dyak headhunters!

Allen Colby: Good question.

Sgt. Reynolds: Sorry Mr. Colby Dyak is outside my jurisdiction.

Gentleman in black tie: Mr. Colby: I believe this is similar to the apparatus your son used at the haunted house.

Allen Colby: There was an ATTEMPT with a dart on Charlie Chan in “Charlie Chan in London.”

Gravelle: Wasn’t there one in the Jade Mask?

Allen Colby: Then, there was the dummy dart device in “The Jade Mask.”

Gentleman in black tie: True, Mr. Colby, but that dart was the size of the Queen Mary.

Gentleman in black tie: Looked like the Graf Zeppelin

Allen Colby: A dart is a dart, sir! It’s all poison to ME!

Sgt. Reynolds: Not many. There are notes on the poision dart frog, bit not poision art murder.

Gentleman in black tie: Poison? Or Poisson?

Allen Colby: AH!

Lady Tiny: I am inside…I am the only one who can fit.

Allen Colby: The mechanical chess player….JIMMY!

Eve Cairo: POP

Allen Colby: Yes, lady…but Jimmy managed somehow!

Sgt. Reynolds: Here Black Tie, just take this pill, and don’t worry about it. 🙂

Allen Colby: Shoplifting at automat.

Lady Tiny: Jimmy learned some twisty tricks from Sue Toy

Allen Colby: Through Lee!

Gentleman in black tie: Lady Tiny: This is a family show.

Sgt. Reynolds: Shoplifting? To my motorcycle!

Allen Colby: The “Lady in Black.”

Lady Tiny: Yeah a family show, but my family is more bizarre than yours. Circus folks after all.

Allen Colby: Mrs. Joe Rocke.

Sgt. Reynolds: Long as the permits are in order let the circus commence

Eve Cairo: haha LT

Allen Colby: Thank you, Sgt. reynolds!

Allen Colby: “The show must go on!”

Sgt. Reynolds: Just doing my duty.

Lady Tiny: Mrs. Rock, Mrs. Boulder, and Mrs. Dirt walked into a bar…I can’t remember the punchline.

Allen Colby: “Suspicion is only toy of fools.”

Allen Colby: Jimmy deserts his post.

Allen Colby: The Chan figure.

Allen Colby: Nice dreary, stormy night!

Sgt. Reynolds: Which will of course be completely unimportant, and never come up again.

Gravelle: Slap!

Allen Colby: We shall see, Sgt.!

Allen Colby: You have the badge, though!

Sgt. Reynolds: True, but I’m out of my jurisdiction. Not as much as Chan or Kashimo though

Allen Colby: “Red” Maddox.

Phil & Mrs Phil: “Evil Choir Boy”

Allen Colby: Jimmy comes through.

Lady Tiny: Trap door!

Allen Colby: Dr. Cream, caught in a lie, starts talking up a storm!

Lady Tiny: There is an artist in everyone…

Allen Colby: Yes, Lady T.

Phil & Mrs Phil: BINGO!

Allen Colby: MacBirney will NOT be happy with Miss Latimer!

Allen Colby: Butcher Dagan.

Lady Tiny: tonga?

Allen Colby: Tonga!

Sgt. Reynolds: Headquarters has called me in. Before I leave anyone care to guess what my other name is?

Lady Tiny: Gee Sarge, I’m stumped

Allen Colby: “NO! It was my brother, BRYL!”

Sgt. Reynolds: Well with no guesses I guess I was just………….Nothere:)

Allen Colby: “I don’t know, you idiot!” Or… “I don’t know you, idiot!”

Eve Cairo: I almost guessed that!

Lady Tiny: I tried Nothere!

Carlotta: very good Nothere

Sgt. Reynolds: Happy Halloween and see you all later. Whoever you are.

Eve Cairo: nice job nothere

Allen Colby: YES!

Allen Colby: Had me stumped, too!

Sgt. Reynolds has left this room

Allen Colby: I should probably remind everyone that next week, it’s MELBOURNE CUP NIGHT!

Allen Colby: Another lights out situation!

Lady Tiny: Time for gambling

Kashimo!: Pop!

Allen Colby: Dr. Cream obviously had a key to the cuffs.

Allen Colby: Yes, lady Tiny!

Allen Colby: And, our film will be: “Charlie Chan at the Race Track.”

Lady Tiny: I guess 3 times Pop has used that same trick

Allen Colby: We have been doing this since the beginning…2000.

Allen Colby: And, the winner receives the silver half-dollar!
