Victoria, come away from the window.
Oh, I'm sure he'll be back shortly.
He's terrified of the dark.
In fact, when he was a boy......he used to wet his combinations regularly, didn't he, William?
I trust the room is to your liking.
Thank you,you are a most gracious hostess.
Which is why it pains me to be the bearer of such bad news.
Would you care to repeat tonight's headline for us?
Hear ye, hear ye!
Victor Van Dort seen this night on the bridge in the arms of a mystery woman!
The dark-haired temptress and Master
Van Dort slipped away into the night!
And now, the weather.
Enough! That will be all.
He doesn't even know any women!
Or so you thought.Do call for me if you need my assistance......in any way.
Good heavens, Finis,what should we do?
Fetch me musket.William, do something.
The town crier probably just had a slow news day.
You know how it is,
you need a little something to cry about.
Regardless, we are one groom short
for the wedding tomorrow.
Not to mention the financial implications.
A most scandalous embarrassment for us all.
Oh, give us a chance to find him,we beg of you.
Just give us until dawn.
Very well. Till dawn.
Victor, darling, where are you?
If you ask me,your boyfriend is kind of jumpy.
He's not my boyfriend,he's my husband.
Victor, where have you gone?
I'll keep an eye out for him.
There he goes, there he goes!
He's... He's getting away!
Quick, quick, after him!
Victor!Where are you?
Victor?Where have you gone?
Married, huh? I'm a widow.
Oh, how rude. He went that way!
Please. There's been a mistake.
I'm not dead.
Excuse me. Excuse me.
Excuse me.Excuse me.
Thank you.Thank you.
Could have used the stairs, silly.
Isn't the view beautiful?
It takes my breath away.
Well, it would if I had any.
Isn't it romantic?
Look, I am terribly sorryabout what's happened to you......and I'd like to help,but I really need to get home.
This is your home now.
But I don't even know your name.
Well, that's a great way to start a marriage.
Oh, I almost forgot.
I have something for you.
It's a wedding present.
My dog, Scraps!
Oh, Scraps, what a good boy.
I knew you'd be happy to see him.
Who's my good boy?
Sit. Sit, Scraps, sit.
Good boy, Scraps.
Roll over. Roll over.
Good boy, Scraps.
Oh, what a cutie.
You should have seen him with fur.
Mother never approved of Scraps jumping up like this.
But then again,she never approved of anything.
Do you think she would have approved of me?
You're lucky you'll never have to meet her.
Well, actually......now that you mention it,
I think you should.
In fact, since we're, you know......married,you should definitely meet her.
And my father too. We should go and see them right now.
What a fantastic idea!Where are they buried?
What? What is it?
They're not from around here.
Where are they?
Oh, they're still alive.
I'm afraid so.
Well, that is a problem.
What's that, Scraps?
Oh, no, we couldn't possibly.
- Oh, well, if you put it like that.
Elder Gutknecht......are you there?
Hello? Is anyone home?
There you are!
Oh, my dear. There you are.
I've brought my husband, Victor.
What's that? Husband?
Pleasure to meet you, sir.
We need to go up. Upstairs?
To visit the land of the living.
Land of the living?
Oh, my dear.
Please, Elder Gutknecht.
Now, why go up there, when people are dying to get down here?
Sir, I beg you to help.
It means so much to me...
I don't know, it's just not natural.
Please, Elder Gutknecht.
Surely there must be something you can do.
Let me see what I can do.
Where did I put that book?
I left it here somewhere.
There's the one.
I have it.
A Ukrainian haunting spell.
Just the thing for these quick trips.
So glad you thought of this.
Now, then......where were we?
The Ukrainian haunting spell?
Here we have it. Ready?
Just remember, when you want to come back, say "Hopscotch."
- That's it.
I spent so long in the darkness...I'd almost forgotten how beautiful the moonlight is.
Hey, I think you dropped something.
Hold on, hold on.
I think I should prepare Mother and Father for the big news.
I'll go ahead and you......wait here.
I won't be long.
Stay right here. I'll be right back.
If ever I see that Van Dort boy......I'll strangle him with my bare hands.
Your hands are too fat,and his neck is too thin.
You'll have to use a rope.
This is the voice of your conscience.
Listen to what I say.
I have a bad feeling about that boy.
You know he is no...
Go chew someone else's ear for a while.
Victor has gone to see his parents,just like he said.
If I hadn't just been sitting in it,
I would say that you had lost your mind!
I'm sure he has a perfectlygood reason for taking so long.
I am sure he does.
Why don't you go ask him?
All right, I will.
After all, he couldn't get far with those cold feet.
Victor? I'm so happy to see you.
Come by the fire. Where have you been?
Are you all right?
I... I...Oh, dear.
You're as cold as death.
What's happened to you?
Victoria, I confess.
I was terrified of marriage.
But then, on meeting you,
I felt I should be with you always......and that our wedding could not come soon enough.
Victor, I feel the same.
Victoria, I se... I se...
I seem to find myself married.
And you should know it's unexpected.
My darling,I just wanted to meet...
Darling? Who's this?
- Who is she?
- I'm his wife.
Victoria, wait. You don't understand.
She's dead. Look.
No! No! Victoria!
You lied to me!
Just to get back to that other woman.
Don't you understand?
You're the other woman.
No! You're married to me.
She's the other woman.She's got a point.
And I thought... I thought this was all going so well.
Look, I'm sorry, but......this just can't work.
It's my eye, isn't it?
No. Your eye is......lovely.
Listen, under different circumstances,
well, who knows?
But we're just too different.
I mean, you're dead.
You should've thought about that before you asked me to marry you.
Why can't you understand? It was a mistake. I would never marry you.
Roses for eternal love.
Lilies for sweetness.
Why so blue?
Maybe he's right.
Maybe we are too different.
Maybe he should have his head examined.
I could do it.
Or perhaps he does belong with her.
Little Miss Living.
With her rosy cheeks and beating heart.
Oh, those girls are ten a penny.
You've got so much more.
You've got... You've got...You've got a wonderful personality.
What does that wispy little brat have
That you don't have double?
She can't hold a candle
To the beauty of your smile
How about a pulse?
Overrated by a mile
