Dialogue Edit

Biting Back Pt. 1 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Count Dracula Scary Icon Halloween approaches. The time when my evil powers are at their height.
Count Dracula Scary Icon Tonight my foul presence will bring terror to the huddled, fearful mortals of Springfield.
Countess Dracula Icon Could you stop off at the Kwik-E-Mart? We need more kitchen trash bags.
Count Dracula Surprised Icon But I’m flying home as a bat! I’ll look like an idiot carrying a shopping bag.
Countess Dracula Annoyed Icon Do it! Or tonight your foul presence will be bringing terror to the living room sofa.
Count Dracula Sad Icon Yes, Dear.

Springfielders Start Ignoring Count Dracula Edit

Character Dialogue
Count Dracula Scary Icon *hypnotizing stare* I want to drink your blood!
Krusty Joking Icon Really? You look a little old to be a network executive.
Count Dracula Happy Icon Oh Krusty, if I wasn’t already undead, you’d slay me!

End Edit

Character Dialogue
Count Dracula Confused Icon I do not understand. Not a single person in this town is scared by me.
Count Dracula Sad Icon I even bit this woman and she started coming on to me.
Selma Bitten Icon *laughs sheepishly* I haven't had action like that in years.

Biting Back Pt. 2 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Count Dracula Annoyed Icon Why is no one scared of me? You’d think people deal with unholy bloodsuckers every day.
Countess Dracula Icon They do: Freemium game designers.
Countess Dracula Serious Icon Our only hope is to use our vampire allure and turn the people of Springfield into our minions.
Countess Dracula Serious Icon But first we’ll have to get rid of the most dangerous and sexy man in town.

Ned at Flanders House Edit

Ned starts Fending Off Vampires at Flanders House.

Character Dialogue
Ned Pajamas Annoyed Icon Hey, hey, the only woman I let bite my neck is my wife!
Countess Dracula Icon Then what’s the problem. Just like her, I’m dead. *long suck*
Ned Pajamas Worried Icon Ooh, I feel like an altar boy who’s been overdoing the communion wine…

End Edit

Character Dialogue
Ned Pajamas Worried Icon Homer, help! Vampires are trying to kill me.
Homer Icon Don’t worry! Vampires can’t stand garlic. Just hang these cloves around your neck.
Ned Pajamas Annoyed Icon Garlic? That’s awfully French. I’ll stick with the vampires.

Biting Back Pt. 3 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Ned Worried Icon Homer, our city is being stalked by vampires!
Homer Aah Icon Nooo! They’re so terrifyingly moody and angst-ridden.
Professor Frink Icon Have no flayvin! Lengthy computer simulations have revealed the way to defeat them.
Professor Frink Icon We must dig up ancient relics from the old Van Flanders ruins, and use them to summon a mythical ancient power.
Professor Frink Icon The legends call it “Sky Finger” and apparently it has a mysterious power called “tapping”.

End Edit

Character Dialogue
Homer Happy Icon Is this it?
Ned Sad Icon That's a rock.
Homer Happy Icon Is this it?
Ned Sad Icon That's the same rock.
Homer Snobby Icon I’m bored.

Biting Back Pt. 4 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Ned Worried Icon We need to dig up more ancient relics and use them to defeat the evil besetting our town.
Homer Annoyed Icon Stupid relics. I’ve already broken three of your shovels digging them up. More shovels please.
Ned Dreamy Icon I call upon the sky lord to grant us a forge burning with righteousness, forming metal into pickaxes of holy fury.
Homer Angry Icon Stupid Flanders! Why didn’t you wish for a beer and a jackhammer!

End Edit

No dialogue.

Biting Back Pt. 5 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Homer Furious Icon Look out! Vampires! Stake ‘em!
Vampire Minion Small Annoyed Icon *snarls*
Ned Shocked Icon No, Homer, those monsters are actually our fellow townspeople!
Homer Furious Icon Definitely stake 'em!
Ned Worried Icon The vampires have used their “allure” to put a curse on regular people.
Ned Icon I think I know how to free them from the allure, but we’ll need to use the ceremonies written in the old Flanders family tome.
Ned Sad Icon Now where did I put that tome?
Homer Icon I borrowed it to put under the leg of my wobbly coffee table.

Cleansing All Monster Minions Edit

Character Dialogue
Homer Ooh Icon Wow, that tome of yours has some kickass anti-minion power.
Ned Happy Icon It also has a mighty good recipe for lemonade. Like to try some?
Homer Snobby Icon We’re allies, not friends.

End Edit

No dialogue.

Biting Back Pt. 6 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Countess Dracula Happy Icon You'll never stop my minions. We will scatter to the dark corners of Springfield!
Homer Thoughtful Icon Hmm, we do have a LOT of dark corners in this town.
Quimby Proud Icon It’s the heart of our latest tourist campaign: “Springfield, Where Lovers Can Watch the Stars”.
Lisa Nagging Icon Because we never repair the street lights.
Lisa Surprised Icon That's it! If we create a dark and spooky area around the old ruins, it'll attract the vampire minions, and keep them out of the town!
Professor Frink Happy Icon The Frink Future Predictor gives that plan a nintey-nine percent chance of success!
Professor Frink Happy Icon But an eighty-seven percent chance the Frink Future Predictor itself is just a worthless piece of junk. Frink away!

Curse Bonus Reached Edit

Character Dialogue
Vampire Minion Small Happy Icon *inquisitive growl*
Lisa Happy Icon It's working! The spooky ruins are attracting the minions!
Professor Frink Happy Icon Once again, the Frink Future Predictor is right!
Fortune Teller Annoyed Icon Everyone wants into the game.

End Edit

No dialogue.

Biting Back Pt. 7 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Countess Dracula Sad Icon Vladdy, dearest, my idiotic minions are hiding in the dark instead of chasing victims.
Count Dracula Icon Yes, the decision to make them mindless does seem to have some drawbacks.
Count Dracula Icon On the other hand, I think we can draw them out of the shadows with the one thing mindless people love.
Count Dracula Happy Icon A shopping district.

End Edit

Biting Back Pt. 8 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Countess Dracula Annoyed Icon I thought if we could defeat any town, it would be this one.
Count Dracula Annoyed Icon No kidding. Last spring, Springfield couldn’t even manage to handle an outbreak of athlete’s foot.
Homer Annoyed Icon Still can’t. My toes are itching the hell out of me.
Countess Dracula Icon Stand back, Vladdy. It’s time to see what a three-hundred-year-old lady vampire can do to this town.
Count Dracula Icon My dear, you don’t look a day over two-fifty.

End Edit

Character Dialogue
Countess Dracula Sad Icon Well, this didn't go as planned.
Homer Happy Icon That's Springfield, baby! If you can't beat 'em, join 'em!
Count Dracula Icon Don’t worry about it, my darling. Go have a nice nap in your coffin.
Countess Dracula Sad Icon I can’t! I drank so much blood I’m too fat to fit in it.
Count Dracula Icon Aw, you can burn those calories off in no time. Just stay up until the sun comes out.
The Vampire invasion has been thwarted. But you can still send Countess Dracula on her job to Create Monster Minions!
