(Back at Gallowmere, in a village, many monsters are walking while many zombies are building up weapons. A Egyptian Princess came to see the mayor who is a demon.)

  • Demon Mayor: Ah, Princess Kiya, it's good to see you.
  • Kiya: Hi there. Do you know where Sir Daniel is?
  • Demon Mayor: I don't know. I haven't seen him anywhere. He always wander around in these places, like all year.
  • Kiya: I know he may be hiding in his tombstone.
  • Demon Mayor: He's never up that morning.
  • Kiya: I haven't seen him in a while. It already been a thousand of years.
  • Demon Mayor: No sign of him. He was going to come for dinner. But he never make it in.
  • Kiya: Sad news for us.
  • Demon Mayor: I miss this funny skeleton guy a lot.
  • Kiya: Me too.
  • Demon Mayor: I wonder where that skeleton hero is at?
  • Kiya: Can't seem to find his tomb around.
  • Demon Mayor: It's somewhere around the grounds.
  • Orc Warrior: It may not be at the grounds no more.
  • Zombie Warrior: It's at the castle.
  • Kiya: The castle?
  • Orc Warrior: Yeah. They hide his tomb somewhere inside of the hidden castle.
  • Demon Mayor: Some knights hasn't gotten a lesson from the king.
  • Orc Warrior: Too bad they have to go through separated ways.
  • Demon Warrior: Bad luck.
  • Demon Mayor: Oh my. I can't believe it.
  • Kiya: I guess they didn't get along together.
  • Demon Mayor: That's too bad. Maybe there weren't enough people to get along.
  • Kiya: You know there's a lot of bad luck in this world. Some can be pros and cons, but we can't help it through.
  • Demon Mayor: I know right.
  • Kiya: That's what i'm trying to say.
  • Demon Mayor: I know. The world out there is filled with monsters. We all gotta be careful on greeting them. Some might be dangerous like ogres.
  • Kiya: Eek, i knew ogres could be scary and live in swamps.
  • Demon Mayor: We're not too fond on ogres.
  • Kiya: Well okay. Not all creatures live in our village.
  • Demon Mayor: Okay my friend.
  • Kiya: See you later.
  • Demon Mayor: Have fun.
  • Kiya: Now i'm just minding my business, okay?
  • Demon Mayor: *thumbs up at Kiya*
  • Kiya: I like this guy.
  • Demon Mayor: Now i am going to mind my own business. Gonna get some work to do.

(Back at Zarok's castle, Zavok walk into the dungeon room)

  • Zarok: Okay. Now i need some spells to bring back a dead person. I wonder what i can do with this cast book. Let me see. Ah ha. A evil ghost with a bunch of bugs in a body. That should do it. *cast a powerful ghost*
  • Oogie Boogie: Rooooaaaarrrrrrrr! I am alive.
  • Zarok: Hello there, i bought you here to find a way to stop the monsters.
  • Oogie Boogie: What is this place? Where am i?
  • Zarok: You are in my lair. You are now under the control of Zarok.
  • Oogie Boogie: Zavok? I am Oogie Boogie.
  • Zarok: Oogie Boogie. Sound like a disco name to me.
  • Oogie Boogie: You fool! I am no disco name of a ghost.
  • Zarok: I'm very sorry for insulting you. What is your name again?
  • Oogie Boogie: Oh. My name is Oogie Boogie, the ghost.
  • Zarok: Nice. I am Zarok the lord.
  • Oogie Boogie: So, do you know about this Jack Skellington guy?
  • Zarok: Um, who is he?
  • Oogie Boogie: He is a skeleton from Halloween Town. That wicked of a skeleton with his monster friends are going to pay for this. I will face some fury revenge.
  • Zarok: We will find this Halloween Town and destroy it with all of our kind.
  • Oogie Boogie: And tell me what place i am in?
  • Zarok: You are in Gallowmere and you're in my lair right now.
  • Oogie Boogie: Gallowmere. What is this dimension right away?
  • Zarok: It's that one nasty world filled with zombies, monsters and creatures right away. But we're gonna destroy it and make it our world.
  • Oogie Boogie: I agree on that one.
  • Zarok: Once we team up, we will destroy both Gallowmere and Halloween Town together and rule it on our own.
  • Oogie Boogie: Yes. It will be a pleasure. All the bugs will be scattered all over the worlds.
  • Zarok: This feel like a great plan to us.
  • Oogie Boogie: Very interesting.
  • Zarok: I see your point.
  • Oogie Boogie: We should start making our plans to stop those bad boys.
  • Zarok: Not a problem. I will be making my return to strike my revenge on that Sir Daniel skeleton.

(Back at Halloween Town, the bear chefs are giving out poison soup as everyone drink the poison soup together)

  • Jack: Ahh, taste just like rat soup.
  • Sally: This taste good.
  • Jack: It's not real poison. Green apple favor is added. Plus-a-delic.
  • Sally: This is pretty tasty.
  • Jack: This is just fresh as usual.
  • Sally: Nice.
  • Jack: I'll be hooked on a evil feeling.
  • Sally: Oh my goodness.
  • Jack: This is just like the way it is.
  • Sally: Can you tell me about it?
  • Jack: Let's not discuss a few things for now and get back into scary business.
  • Sally: Whatever you say my love.
  • Mayor: Hey guys, what's up?
  • Jack: Ah, just living in the life of horror.
  • Mayor: Uh huh. I like the way it is.
  • Jack: Perfect. Now we're in good shape.
  • Mayor: Thank you very much.
  • Sally: We need to discuss our future.
  • Mayor: Yeah. Anything you asked.
  • Jack: Just sit with us.
  • Mayor: Okay. I wanted to hear your facts.
  • Jack: We may be thinking on expanding this wonderful town.
  • Mayor: Oh yeah, lots of scary creatures should be coming this way.
  • Jack: Even if we can invite more people over.
  • Mayor: Zombies, trolls, skeletons, anything you name it.
  • Jack: That's pretty much it on the list.
  • Mayor: What about the devils? You know these red horned people with the staffs on their hands.
  • Jack: Ooh yeah. That one.
  • Mayor: What about the demons?
  • Jack: Well, they're about the same.
  • Mayor: Do they hold staffs?
  • Jack: No.
  • Mayor: Well okay. That's fine by me.
  • Sally: Any more monsters to name?
  • Mayor: A jersey devil!
  • Jack: A jersey devil? You know what are those?
  • Mayor: Yes. They're a type of devil.
  • Jack: Oh, i get it.
  • Sally: I guess we're done with lunch.
  • Mayor: Okie dokie. I better get going with my lunch break.
  • Jack: I'm going to write a diary for now.

(Back at Gallowmere at Zarok's castle in the summon room)

  • Zarok: Now it is the time to summon a monster from the books.
  • Oogie Boogie: Time has come. Which monster do you want to summon?
  • Zarok: Only a spell can release a monster from the curses.
  • Oogie Boogie: So what kind of monster will you summon in order on stopping Gallowmere?
  • Zarok: Ah ha, i will summon a leech. Summon the leech now! *summon a leech*
  • Leech: *roar*
  • Oogie Boogie: Ah, scary.
  • Zarok: Don't worry, it's not gonna bite.
  • Oogie Boogie: That leech almost killed me!
  • Zarok: It's just a monster. He'll keep an eye on the skeleton knight. Also, i heard that there is a Halloween festival going on and that leech is gonna destroy it.
  • Leech: *roll eyes*
  • Zarok: Get out there and stop that party.
  • Leech: *fly off*
  • Zarok: By the way, this leech can fly like a grasshopper.

(Back at Gallowmere in the town, everyone is celebrating Halloween at a festival)

  • Kiya: Aww, look how many kids dressed in costumes.
  • Hamilton: Oh boy, it's the time of the Halloween spirit. A haunted party for everyone.
  • Madam Jo-jo: Ho ho ho, did someone say Halloween spirit?
  • Kiya: Jo-jo?
  • Madam Jo-jo: Don't ask me, i wonder why we are doing this?
  • Kiya: It's just a fun festival. Everyone is suppose to have fun.
  • Madam Jo-jo: Festivals are boring. They're just parties with a bunch of people having fun and excitement.
  • Kiya: Come on, you should be happy about it.
  • Madam Jo-jo: I can't just stand here like 30 minutes to watch a single show of a parade.
  • Kiya: Well, you're not enjoying it.

(The leech monster sneak into the building as he spy on the kids dressed in costumes. A ceremony is being held with Sir Daniel's tomb being brought by the knights, making the leech monster hungry.)

  • Jester: Ladies and gentleman, we would love to present you to one of our greatest heroes of Gallowmere. He's funny, he doesn't talk, he's whack some monsters and he save the world once from the villains like Zarok. Here comes Sir Daniel Fortesque!

  • Everyone: *cheers*
  • Kiya: Ah, Sir Daniel.
  • Majam Jo-jo: What a hero he is.
  • Kiya: What a knight.
  • Hamilton: My man is here at last.
  • Kiya: He's one of a kind. He saved me the other day.
  • Leech Monster: *sneak into the box and spy on Sir Daniel*
  • Hamilton: How many monsters does he kill?
  • Kiya: Maybe like a hundred total.
  • Majam Jo-jo: Saving us all since the 1500's.
  • Leech Monster: *sneak into the toy stand*
  • Toy Cashier: Hey, what are you doing in here?
  • Leech Monster: *go into the toy cashier's body and get out in the belly*
  • Toy Cashier: *fell down*
  • Leech Monster: *laser shot on the walls*

(The festival is being under attack by the leech monster as everyone scream and run)

  • Jester: There is a leech on the loose! Leave the town now! We're in serious danger!
  • Kiya: What is going on?
  • Sir Daniel: *fears and point at the leech monster*
  • Leech Monster: *move into Sir Daniel's body*
  • Sir Daniel: *panic and run around from the leech monster*
  • Kiya: The leech is in his body!
  • Hamilton: Do something! Don't just stand here.
  • Kiya: Don't worry Daniel, i'm coming. *grab Sir Daniel and grab the leech monster out*
  • Leech Monster: *tries to escape*
  • Kiya: Don't even think about escaping you snake demon.
  • Leech Monster: *roar*
  • Kiya: It roars like a yeti?
  • Sir Daniel: *fears*
  • Kiya: Don't worry, i'll kill it. *grab the leech monster and throw it to the ground*
  • Leech Monster: *shoot lasers everywhere*
  • Kiya: *use the shield to protect herself and Sir Daniel* I wonder who brought the leech monster in?
  • Sir Daniel: Uh oh.
  • Leech Monster: *escape into the streets*
  • Majam Jo-jo: It's getting away!
  • Sir Daniel: *get up and chase after the leech monster*
  • Kiya: Wait up! I can stop the leech monster for you.
  • Hamilton: Look out for any danger!
  • Sir Daniel: *use his sword to try slashing on the leech monster*
  • Leech Monster: *tries to escape*
  • Kiya: Don't let it escape.
  • Leech Monster: *break into the ground*
  • Kiya: Daniel, it's heading underground!
  • Sir Daniel: Ahh! *jump into the underground*
  • Leech Monster: *enter the hole*
  • Sir Daniel: *follow the hole where the leech is*
  • Leech Monster: *sneak into the lost and found area*
  • Sir Daniel: *sneak into the rock to hide from the leech*
  • Leech Monster: *break into the coffin room*
  • Sir Daniel: Uh?
  • Leech Monster: *try to open up the coffin*
  • Sir Daniel: *glare*
  • Leech Monster: *discover the empty coffin*
  • Sir Daniel: *hold his sword ready for a slash*
  • Leech Monster: *go inside of the tomb*
  • Sir Daniel: *run and try to slash the leech monster with his sword*
  • Leech Monster: *fly off*
  • Sir Daniel: *trip by the coffin*
  • Leech Monster: *fight with Sir Daniel*

(Back at Zarok's castle, Zarok and Oogie Boogie are watching Sir Daniel fighting the leech monster on a mirror screen)

  • Zarok: These two are fighting together. How can we get Sir Daniel out of this world?
  • Oogie Boogie: There is only one way to get him out. Summon another monster.
  • Zarok: Summon another monster?
  • Oogie Boogie: Yes. That one monster would open up a portal to the next world so the deformed knight would get the hell out of here.
  • Zarok: I smell like it. Now i will bring another monster in for the leech!
  • Oogie Boogie: Do it.
  • Zarok: *summon a devil-like monster with wings* I present you, Jaime.
  • Jaime: *roar*
  • Zarok: Easy there Jaime, don't go crazy over a ghost.
  • Oogie Boogie: Hey!
  • Jaime: *growl at Oogie Boogie*
  • Oogie Boogie: Don't growl at me. Growl at Sir Daniel.
  • Jaime: Sir.......Daniel.
  • Zarok: *open the portal for Jaime* Go. Stop this fight now and bring back the leech.
  • Jaime: I won't fail you. *roar and jump to the portal*
  • Zarok: Sir Daniel, we'll see about that.

(The portal open in the sewers as Jaime pops up and roar at Sir Daniel and the leech)

  • Sir Daniel: *fear of Jaime*
  • Jaime: Hey, i got something for you.
  • Sir Daniel: Eh?
  • Jaime: *open a portal up*
  • Leech Monster: *fear of the portal*
  • Jaime: Come little Leech, we're leaving.
  • Leech Monster: *stick with Jaime*
  • Sir Daniel: *run to Jaime*
  • Jaime: *punch Sir Daniel*
  • Sir Daniel: *get hit on the wall*
  • Jaime: He he he, now open the portal! *open the portal up*
  • Sir Daniel: *fear of the portal*
  • Jaime: *push Sir Daniel into the portal* Ha ha ha ha ha. So long!
  • Sir Daniel: *fall into the portal*
  • Jaime: The case is done. Now we'll tell Zarok about this. *open the portal to Zarok's castle*
  • Leech Monster: *enter the portal*
  • Jaime: See you later little skeleton. Take this coffin with you! *throw the coffin into Sir Daniel's portal and jump into the portal to Zarok's castle*

(In the portal, Sir Daniel fall into the coffin as the coffin lock itself with Sir Daniel inside and fall into another dimension in Halloween Town as the coffin land into the ground. A ghost dog sniff into the ground as he sniff into the coffin that Sir Daniel got stuck in.)

  • Jack: No Zero. Do not open that coffin. It may be some kind of dangerous mummy inside.
  • Sally: Hey Jack, what is that coffin doing on the ground?
  • Jack: It landed out of nowhere. Me and my pet Zero were watching the big hole in the sky with the coffin landing. It could be some twist inside.
  • Sally: That's kinda strange.
  • Jack: Why can we bring it over to Halloween Town?
  • Sally: Maybe we don't want to be too spoiled about it.
  • Jack: Go bring the kids over. They need to see this.
  • Sally: Oh, they will be hearing about this.
  • Jack: Zero, keep sniffing for clues and answers.
  • Zero: *sniff in the ground*
  • Jack: That's my boy. Keep sniffing.

(At Lock, Shock and Barrel's house, Lock and Shock are cooking some poison soup as Barrel set up the table for lunch)

  • Barrel: How is the poison soup doing?
  • Shock: It's pretty spicy.
  • Lock: Smell like danger.
  • Barrel: I got some poison peppers for us to try.
  • Lock: Add some salt to it.
  • Shock: This is going to be pretty tasty for a soup.
  • Lock: Don't forgot the toxic poison we made a few weeks ago.
  • Shock: I got it.
  • Lock: Let's get it cooking for toxic.
  • Shock: Spice and satisfying.
  • ???: *knock on the door*
  • Shock: Who goes there?
  • Lock: Just open it.
  • Shock: *open the door* Hey Sally.
  • Sally: Oh hey kids, what you're cooking?
  • Lock: Poison Soup.
  • Sally: Poison Soup? I never heard of this type of soup before.
  • Lock: It's going to be really good.
  • Shock: The poison of the soup is about ready.
  • Sally: Ooh, can i try?
  • Lock: It's not about ready yet. It has to be a bit poison and spicy to give it a slurp.
  • Sally: Maybe i can help put on cooking that spice of soup.
  • Lock: Oh, you dare to add a little spice to it?
  • Sally: Well, i can try.
  • Lock: Do i trust you?
  • Sally: Well, yeah. Of course.
  • Shock: So you dare to come inside.
  • Sally: Sure. Don't ask me.
  • Mayor: Hey guys, i saw something strange that fell out of the sky.
  • Sally: Wait, i know what Jack has saw.
  • Mayor: Who you asking?
  • Sally: Jack is in the graveyard!
  • Mayor: Like what? Where is he at and what is he up to?
  • Sally: You need to come to the graveyard. Some mystery coffin has fallen into the ground from a portal opening up.
  • Mayor: Oh goodness darkness, the coffin has fallen into the ground! Someone better call the emergency.
  • Lock: I'll check. Something must be leaking.
  • Sally: I hope there's a monster inside.

(Back at the graveyard, Jack and Zero are trying to get the coffin out)

  • Jack: It won't come off. Zero, dig in the ground.
  • Zero: *sniff*
  • Jack: Don't just sniff. Just dig.
  • Zero: *sniff*
  • Jack: Oh Zero, You're being yourself.
  • Sally: Jack, is the coffin still there?
  • Jack: Oh, Sally. You came back. The coffin is still here afterwards.
  • Sally: Can we open it?
  • Jack: No. It must stay forbidden at all cost.
  • Mayor: My friend, we're just checking how you're doing with the coffin.
  • Jack: Um no, i haven't even open it yet.
  • Mayor: Why don't we bring it over to Halloween Town?
  • Jack: That's a good idea.
  • Sally: I'll help you carry the coffin over.
  • Lock: We'll bring it over and have everyone sing for a new deadly person.
  • Mayor: Push this thing to the town.
  • Jack: We better get this thing moving.
  • Mayor: Right away Jack.
  • Sally: Push harder.
  • Jack: Let's just carry this thing over to the town.
  • Sally: Fine. Mind as well help us carry this thing as high as a rock?
  • Lock: Yes. We'll hold it for you.
  • Mayor: I'll tell everyone that we got a new citizen.
  • Jack: Right at your spooky service.
  • Mayor: Just like a billion of skulls lying on the ground.
  • Jack: Whatever.

(Back at Halloween Town, many deadly citizens are bringing their pumpkins to the harvest over the ground)

  • Skeleton: I brought the biggest one on the block.
  • Dirt Monster: Mine is a bit rotten. It's old, look at it guys.
  • Ogre: Hey, not that bad. It still look good to me.
  • Dirt Monster: It's sloppy.
  • Ogre: It's some misunderstanding.
  • Dirt Monster: Come on, don't hate yourself.
  • Ogre: I don't usually have friends.
  • Ghost: Me too. Every time I meet up with people, they try to run away from me.
  • Ogre: Cheer up.
  • Dirt Monster: At least you tried.
  • Jack: Hey guys! We brought something back.
  • Mayor: Back up a little my friends. We got incoming.
  • Jack: We are having a new citizen!
  • Ogre: Whoa.
  • Dirt Monster: A new citizen?
  • Jack: Someone must be moving in on the inside. It could be a mummy or a dead skeleton.
  • Sally: Let's all celebrate with a song.
  • Mayor: Play like we're getting spooky.
  • Sally: Raise up high like you do not care.
  • Mayor: Now hit it!
  • Jack: Ooh, we don't know what could be inside. *singing*

What's this? What's this?

It's a coffin with a skull

What's this?

There's white things in the air

What's this?

I can't believe my eyes

I must be dreaming. Wake up, Jack! This isn't fair! What's this?

What's this? What's this?

There's something very wrong

What's this?

It could be a dead man

What's this?

It's filled with dust and a bunch of spider web on the case

It hold heavy like a rock. Have I possibly gone daffy? What is this?

What's this?

  • Sally: Open it.
  • Jack: It's a mystery inside. You don't wanna know what's this? *open the coffin as Sir Daniel wakes up*
  • Mayor: It's a skeleton knight.
  • Everyone: *shocked*
  • Sir Daniel: *look around the town*
  • Jack: This guy has no mouth. That's a little weird.
  • Sir Daniel: *hold a sword*
  • Jack: Eek! He has a sword to kill everyone!
  • Sir Daniel: *try to communicate with Jack*
  • Jack: Oh, i think he can't understand us. But he knows what is going on in his world.
  • Sir Daniel: *pat on Jack*
  • Jack: You're trying to defeat a evil sorcerer, are you?
  • Sir Daniel: *shook head*
  • Jack: Does it has a ghost with him?
  • Sir Daniel: *shook head again*
  • Jack: Please don't tell me Oogie Boogie is back.
  • Sir Daniel: *confused*
  • Jack: I think he's confused about something about a threat in both worlds. Maybe you don't remember anything that happen in your world. Do you know what i am saying?
  • Sir Daniel: *tap his head*
  • Sally: What kind of undead skeleton he is?
  • Jack: He doesn't look like the one from our world. He can't be that dumb. Also, he has one eye.
  • Sally: He also have no mouth from his skull.
  • Jack: But he has teeth. So his mouth is missing from the head.
  • Sally: He look broken, isn't he?
  • Jack: I think he's deformed. But we don't know for sure.
  • Sally: Tell us what happen? Is Oogie Boogie still alive?
  • Sir Daniel: *shook head*
  • Jack: Oh no........
  • Sally: Oogie Boogie is back.
  • Mayor: It's a nightmare. The ghost monster we all know is back!
  • Everyone: *shocked*
  • Sir Daniel: *fear and panic*
  • Jack: Calm down everyone, we know how to stop Oogie Boogie and that sorcerer of yours from your world.
  • Sir Daniel: *agree*
  • Sally: There is a sorcerer?
  • Sir Daniel: Yee.
  • Jack: Dear lord, help me.
  • Mayor: Okay knight, we know how we can stop Oogie Boogie from taking over Halloween Town.
  • Jack: He doesn't speak, so he doesn't understand what he says.
  • Sally: Maybe he can help us out to save our worlds.
  • Jack: That's a great idea. His sword will slash all the ghosts away.
  • Sir Daniel: *salute*
  • Jack: Heck, he even salute like a soldier.
  • Mayor: You will be helping to stop Oogie Boogie.
  • Sir Daniel: *get off the coffin*
  • Jack: You have your armor ready?
  • Sir Daniel: *thumbs up*
  • Jack: And your sword?
  • Sir Daniel: *still thumbs up*
  • Jack: Good. A new adventure awaits.
  • Sir Daniel: *salute again*
  • Jack: Get up, we got some things to catch up.
  • Sir Daniel: Ta da!
  • Jack: You can talk?
  • Sir Daniel: Uh huh.
  • Jack: That's what i'm talking about.
  • Sally: Are we going or what?
  • Jack: Oh yes we are. We're going out.
  • Sally: Time to move along.
  • Sir Daniel: Ta ta!
  • Jack: See ya Mayor. We'll be back after a long adventure.
  • Mayor: Wish the best of luck and your skeleton knight friend.
  • Jack: Believe it or not, we're gonna win.
  • Mayor: Praise to you.
  • Sir Daniel: *shake head*
  • Jack: Let's go my friends. We're going to stop Oogie Boogie from destroying our worlds.
  • Sally: This is going to be the journey til the end.
  • Jack: We're fighting for our lives.
  • Sally: Whatever something bad happen, we'll let our souls rise from our bodies.
  • Jack: This knight is gonna survive the quest.
  • Sir Daniel: Hur.
  • Sally: You know he will.
  • Jack: *read his map* So, do you live in any of the realms according to this map?
  • Sir Daniel: Uh uh uh.
  • Jack: Oh right, you're from another dimension.
  • Sir Daniel: *surprised*
  • Jack: You don't need to worry about it. Anyways, let's go stop the baddies from destroying Halloween Town.
  • Sir Daniel: Hur hur!
  • Jack: Up we go.

(Back at Zarok's castle, Zarok and Oogie Boogie set up a plan to trap the heroes. Jaime and the leech monster return from a portal.)

  • Jaime: Hello Boss.
  • Zarok: Welcome back Jaime. You brought back the leech monster. So you killed Sir Daniel.
  • Jaime: I push him into the coffin right into the portal.
  • Zarok: The knight is still alive? How dare you!
  • Jaime: I tried to kill him. I suck him away.
  • Oogie Boogie: *watch Sir Daniel, Jack and Sally walking in the plains on a glass screen* How could those skeleton brats found that piece of a coffin with the skeleton knight?
  • Jaime: He's still alive? The skeleton and ragdoll lady found him when i dropped that coffin.
  • Oogie Boogie: I may summon another monster to track those skeletons down.
  • Zarok: We can destroy their world and this world together. We'll be unstoppable.
  • Jaime: And inevitable.
  • Oogie Boogie: Ho ho ho. I'll crush their souls to the top of the mountain.
  • Zarok: You. Come here.
  • ???: *appear as a ogre knight with a skull on his shoulders*
  • Zarok: What would i call you? Fred. Fred, you're in charge on stopping the skeleton knight with his spooky friends all over Halloween Town.
  • Fred: I will be helping along with you guys.
  • Zarok: Fred, i got a job for you. I want you to smash the knights from coming through our world.
  • Fred: I'll try my best.
  • Zarok: Don't you dare fail on us.
  • Fred: I won't let you both down.
  • Oogie Boogie: You must go and destroy these knights from coming over.
  • Fred: The other two don't look like knights to me.
  • Oogie Boogie: You can crush them if you want, but crush their souls out.
  • Fred: I'm leaving right away.
  • Oogie Boogie: I dare you to win my chance in order to replace a new world, filled with souls of skeletons and ghosts alike.
  • Fred: I must find vengeance.
  • Zarok: Go on if you dare.
  • Fred: That annoying skeleton's face is going to be at my display.
  • Zarok: *open the portal up*
  • Fred: This is my lucky day. *enter the portal*
  • Jaime: Classic Fred.
  • Oogie Boogie: Let's see how it goes.

(Back with Sir Daniel, Jack and Sally on the spooky path to the creepy forest)

  • Jack: Sir Daniel, check your map if we're going the right way.
  • Sir Daniel: *check on the map*
  • Sally: We're on the right way.
  • Sir Daniel: Hur hur.
  • Jack: I know the way to Oogie Boogie's lair. This is the way to get into his lair.
  • Sally: You're not serious, are you?
  • Jack: I'm telling you. We're going to a glorious quest.
  • Sir Daniel: Yee!

(The portal open up as Fred jump into the portal and catch up with the group)

  • Fred: Ha ha ha.
  • Sir Daniel: *look at Fred* Hur!
  • Jack: Are you trying to follow us?
  • Fred: Stand still. We're going to play a little game.
  • Sally: Stranger, you can't play games with someone you don't know. Now scam off and pick somebody your own size.
  • Fred: The size of a pumpkin? Ha! I don't even know who you are.
  • Jack: You got something to say?
  • Sir Daniel: *hold his sword to Fred*
  • Fred: I'll say we dance to the battle.
  • Sir Daniel: *run and slash his sword to Fred*
  • Fred: Ooh. You'll get something for a reward. *bump Sir Daniel*
  • Sir Daniel: *throw his head on Fred*
  • Fred: Is that a broken head?
  • Jack: That's his head you ignorant.
  • Fred: I'll smash it.
  • Sir Daniel: *jump his head over*
  • Jack: Go grab the head Sally.
  • Sally: *grab Sir Daniel's head and put it back in his body*
  • Sir Daniel: *throw his sword to Fred's belly*
  • Fred: Gah.
  • Jack: Slice him up like a onion.
  • Fred: *take the sword out and throw it to the ground*
  • Sir Daniel: *gasps and pull his sword*
  • Fred: What are you again?
  • Jack: I am, Jack Skellington, the king of Pumpkins!
  • Fred: Ha. You're a Pumpkin King and you're a skeleton? Ha! I can laugh all day with a skull dressed in a suit with no pumpkin head.
  • Jack: You don't mock me.
  • Fred: I can't stop laughing at this. What kind of a fraud makes you a pumpkin master?
  • Sir Daniel: *jump and slash Fred's belly*
  • Fred: *roar*
  • Sir Daniel: Ha!
  • Jack: Take a beat! *throw a pumpkin bomb at Fred*
  • Fred: *get hit by the wall* You slice me. Now i'll slice you in half.
  • Sir Daniel: *cut off Fred's left hand*
  • Fred: *roar* You son of a skull. I'll tear you a new mouth.
  • Sally: He doesn't even have one you rotten orc.
  • Jack: Say goodbye ogre! *throw a big pumpkin at Fred's body*
  • Fred: Ooh. *fall in the water and drown*
  • Sally: He's dead alright.
  • Jack: Never expect to see a stranger, trying to hunt a monster down.
  • Sir Daniel: *bow down*
  • Sally: Uh, okay. I like a knight that can bow us like kings.
  • Sir Daniel: Ta ta.
  • Jack: We can't understand you. You need some Intelligence to make you speak better.
  • Sir Daniel: Eh?
  • Jack: Sally got something to make you a bit smarter. Trust me, you're gonna like it.
  • Sally: I think this potion is going to make him smarter on our quest to stop the two ghosts from vouring our worlds down.
  • Jack: That's a great mix of potion there Sally.
  • Sally: He's gonna like this one.
  • Jack: Sir Daniel, i think you're going to like this one.
  • Sir Daniel: Er?
  • Jack: Do you have a mouth? We need to fill you up with some smart power.
  • Sir Daniel: En.
  • Jack: You have teeth. But do you have a full body?
  • Sally: He's perfect, but doesn't have the rest of his mouth.
  • Jack: I never seen his teeth like this before in my life.
  • Sally: Just pour it into his body.
  • Jack: Drink it up knight boy.
  • Sir Daniel: *drink the potion up*
  • Jack: How is it?
  • Sir Daniel: *feel dizzy*
  • Jack: That potion shouldn't even make him a bit tired.
  • Sally: What did you do to him?
  • Jack: I didn't created that potion.
  • Sir Daniel: *acting up*
  • Sally: He's on a stroke.
  • Jack: Let me fix him. *punch Sir Daniel* Done.
  • Sally: You just made him worse.
  • Jack: I didn't punch him to death. I just fix him like a pumpkin.
  • Sir Daniel: *act regular* Uh, hello?
  • Jack: See, it works. Like a smart cookie.
  • Sir Daniel: Which is the way to Gallowmere?
  • Jack: Gallowmere? You mean Halloween Town? You know we left that place a few minutes ago. Maybe we can go back and see a few of our friends while we're on a journey to save the world.
  • Sir Daniel: No, Gallowmere.
  • Sally: What is Gallowmere like?
  • Sir Daniel: It's a kingdom and a county in England. It is home to many mystical, mythical creatures, like Dragon toads, Rhinotaurs and Dragon birds. The knights like me have war out with Zarok thousand of years ago. We were possessed out since 1386.
  • Jack: So this Zarok have been controlling and brainwashing people all over Gallowmere. Plus, you said that he teamed up with Oogie Boogie. Now i know what's going on with our worlds.
  • Sally: How do we go to Gallowmere?
  • Jack: We have no map. A portal can take us there.
  • Sir Daniel: I know how it works. We can take a time machine there to warp into Gallowmere.
  • Jack: A time machine? No kidding man. You're in Halloween Town and we monsters haunt every single creature to celebrate from Halloween to Christmas.
  • Sir Daniel: Nuh uh, there could be a better chance to warp from one place to another.
  • Sally: Are you listening what Daniel is saying?
  • Jack: Oh yes. I know a bunch of guys that can open through a world in.
  • Sir Daniel: You do?
  • Jack: I know the three who can take us all the way to Gallowmere by using a special source of liquid.
  • Sir Daniel: Who you asking?
  • Jack: Let's go. You'll get a chance to meet these kids.

(Back at Lock, Shock and Barrel's house, a knocking sound was heard from the door)

  • Lock: Who is it? Someone is here for a little killing.
  • Shock: *open the door* You again?
  • Jack: Hey kids. I want you all to meet Sir Daniel and he got something to say about his world.
  • Sir Daniel: Hi there. I'm from Gallowmere. It's nice to see you three.
  • Shock: What the? He has no part of his mouth to speak carefully.
  • Sir Daniel: Can we come in?
  • Shock: Who are you suppose to be? A knight?
  • Sir Daniel: Uh huh.
  • Lock: Get in.
  • Jack: How come he get in? Do we get in too as well?
  • Lock: Come on in.

(Sir Daniel, Jack and Sally got into the house)

  • Sir Daniel: Um.
  • Shock: What's with the funny face?
  • Jack: It's just his expression. He smiles like that every time we walk close into him.
  • Sir Daniel: Uh huh.
  • Lock: You're not bringing a sword to the house, are you?
  • Jack: It's his sword. He's also a knight.
  • Shock: Have you ever save a princess before?
  • Sir Daniel: Uh.....i only save a few once. I saved a Egyptian princess once and went back in time to explore my past.
  • Jack: He said he used a time machine to travel back in time. Maybe he accidentally time travel to our world inside of a coffin.
  • Sir Daniel: No i didn't. I got warped there.
  • Shock: You said you got warped.
  • Sir Daniel: Until then, you gotta build me a portal to Gallowmere.
  • Shock: How can we do that?
  • Sir Daniel: I'm going to sketch a way to open a portal to a new world.
  • Jack: Trust me Daniel, we are still going to your world to find out.
  • Sally: You think you can create a portal that can take us to a new world?
  • Shock: Yes. I'll show you the instructions.

(The instructions are shown on the table on opening up a portal)

  • Shock: You need some sort of magic potion to get the circle going.
  • Jack: We know how to mix with magic.
  • Lock: Are you making fun of us?
  • Sir Daniel: Nope. Not at all.
  • Barrel: I'll dare you to step on this pillow.
  • Jack: Why would i step on your pillow? You need a pillow to sleep.
  • Shock: We're playing with you.
  • Sir Daniel: Ha ha.
  • Shock: Don't make me take off your head.
  • Sir Daniel: Ah. Oh no, get me out of here.
  • Jack: Daniel, we're not gonna bite your head off.
  • Sir Daniel: Whoosh, what a nightmare.
  • Shock: Show us what a portal is like from your world.
  • Sir Daniel: *draw a circle on a paper at a table*
  • Shock: That's what a portal looks like?
  • Sir Daniel: Yes.
  • Jack: How do they open the portals? Do they use some wizard-type magic from a spell?
  • Sir Daniel: Most likely. I'm gonna show you how it works.
  • Jack: Uh, Sir Daniel, what are you doing?
  • Shock: He can't touch our potions. I'm assume that he's gonna drop every one of them and blow up the whole house.
  • Sir Daniel: No. I think i got it.
  • Jack: How do you open it?
  • Sir Daniel: *use his magic powers to open a portal up to Gallowmere* Ta da.
  • Jack: Wow. That is Gallowmere. Is this what your world looks like?
  • Sir Daniel: Yes. Heroes of mighty heroes unite to fight against the beasts and demons in the land of Gallowmere.
  • Jack: We're coming with you my friend. We know what's happening in your world.
  • Sir Daniel: Alright. Let's jump in to Gallowmere!
  • Sally: Wish us the best of luck to save the world.
  • Jack: We'll be back.
  • Shock: Stay out of trouble.
  • Sir Daniel: *hop to the portal*
  • Jack: Another one is a deadly jawbreaker. *hop to the portal*
  • Sally: I'm going in. Just hold on. *hop to the portal*
  • Shock: That's cool.
  • Lock: Do you think they're gonna survive the quest?
  • Barrel: Trust me, they'll never see the light to see the end of the world.
  • Everyone: *evil laugh*

(Back at Gallowmere in the town, the citizens are cleaning up the mess caused by the leech earlier. A lot of people mourn the death of Sir Daniel Fortesque.)

  • Kiya: We lost Sir Daniel Fortesque.
  • Madam Jo-jo: It's such a shame for that strange snake to show up and ruined the Halloween festival.
  • Kiya: It was a leech. Everyone has been talking about it on today's article in a Newspaper.
  • Hamilton: We have no choice, but to find a new hero on the horizon.
  • Kiya: You know what? I'm going to find Sir Daniel Fortesque and bring him back.
  • Hamilton: You can't bring someone back from the death you know.
  • Kiya: I'm dead! He's dead and we're all dead.
  • Madam Jo-jo: Girl, some of us are living, you're not the only dead human on the planet.
  • Kiya: Listen to me, i saw him fall out of a portal from a demon. I'm going to get him back.
  • Hamilton: Wait! You can't just leave without us.
  • Kiya: Don't worry my friends. It is my journey to find him and bring him back for justice. I know he got warped somewhere around the planet. I'll be back.
  • Madam Jo-jo: If you're not gonna make it back in time, we'll pray for you.
  • Hamilton: Good luck Kiya! Watch out for zombies and monsters alike.
  • Kiya: I will. See you in a day.
  • Hamilton: We love you Kiya. We better put you up on the Honor of Heroes.
  • Madam Jo-jo: What about you? Were you a scientist and inventor once?
  • Hamilton: Well yeah. I almost drop all of my inventions when working on the table.
