A Nightmare on Wall Street


Holly Belle: Have either of you seen Logan?  I've been looking all over for him.
He's supposed to take me to a Halloween costume party.
Nathan: Is that why you're wearing that get-up?

Holly Belle: Yes, this 'get-up', as you call it, is my costume.
I happen to be a prima ballerina!
Nathan: Found two left ballet shoes, did you?
Blake: >Giggle<

Holly Belle: Very funny.  For your information, I am extremely graceful. 
I float like a butterfly.
Blake: >...and sting like a bee...<

Holly Belle: Oh, Logan, there you are!  Are you ready to go?  I don't want to be late.
WAIT! You're not even dressed!  Where are your pants?!?
Logan: I am fully dressed.  This is my costume.  Don't you know who I am?
Holly Belle: What, an absent-minded banker? Go get dressed!

Logan: I'm Trevor, from the TV show Ghosts!

Holly Belle: Oh good grief.  Couldn't you go as someone else from that show; like the Viking?
Or the guy with the arrow through his neck?  Or...or...or one of the cholera victims?
Logan: No, I've got to be Trevor.  Besides, you have to admit I do have the legs for it.

Holly Belle: >Sigh<  You are rather Trevor-like in many ways...

Fall Feelings


Daphne: Hey there, Duncan.  What's with the glum face?
Duncan: You say that my face is always glum.
Daphne: Well, it kind of is, sweetie.  
I'm just wondering what happens to be causing it today.

Duncan: Fall is here.  And I hate fall.
Daphne: Come on, Chuckles.  We're going outside.

Daphne: Now just look at it out here -- the lovely colors, the mellow sunlight.
The brisk, invigorating temperature.  It's beautiful!  Fall is a beautiful time of year.
Duncan: Well, yes, but...

Daphne: >Ugh< Somehow, I just knew there was going to be a 'but.'
Duncan: Fall may be all those things, but it's also the waiting room for winter.
It can be ever so nice, but you still know what's on the other side of the door.

Daphne: Okay, I can't argue with that.  But the thing is there's really nothing we can do about it.
Except maybe just make the best of it, hmmm?
Duncan: You're right.  I know you're right.

Duncan: I hate fall.
Daphne: >Sigh<
