Vacationing in Transylvania

Vacationing in Transylvania – If you think that vacationing in Transylvania is a bad idea … wait until you get to the groaner pun at the end! Enjoy!

Bob Hill, and his new wife, Betty, are vacationing in Transylvania, and they’€™re driving a rental car along a rather deserted road. It’€™s late at night, and rain is pelting down; Bob can see barely ten feet in front of his windshield. Suddenly, the car skids out of control, smashing
into a tree and knocking Bob unconscious.

When he comes to, his new wife is lying in a pool of her own blood’€¦ so he carefully picks her up and begins trudging down the road. Pretty soon, he sees a light shining out of a huge, Gothic castle. After several minutes of frantic knocking, an ugly hunchback opens the door. Bob immediately blurts, ‘€œMy name is Bob Hill, and this is my wife, Betty. We’€™ve been in a terrible accident, and she’€™s been seriously hurt. Can I please use your phone?’€

‘€œI’€™m sorry,’€ replies the hunchback. ‘€œWe don’€™t have a phone, but my master is a doctor. Come in, and I will get him.’€

A few minutes later, an elegant, intense man with burning eyes effortlessly floats down the stairs. ‘€œI’€™m afraid my assistant may have misled you. I’€™m not a medical doctor; I am a scientist. However, it is many kilometers to the nearest clinic, and I have had basic medical training, so I will see what I can do. Igor, bring them down to the laboratory.’€

So Igor picks up Betty, and carries her downstairs, with Bob limping close behind. After Igor arranges Betty on a lab table, Bob collapses from exhaustion and his own injuries, so Igor places him on the adjoining table.

During a brief examination, the intense scientist looks worried. ‘€œThings are very serious. Prepare the mechanism.’€ However, even though Igor and his master work feverishly, it’€™s too late. Bob and Betty Hill have slipped away.

The deaths are quite upsetting to the scientist, and he climbs the steps to his conservatory, where he finds solace by playing the huge pipe organ. Dramatic, haunting melodies fill the castle.

Meanwhile, Igor is still tidying up, downstairs in the laboratory. As the strain of a mournful tune wafts through the lab, Igor notices that Betty Hill’€™s fingers are twitching. And there, Bob’€™s arm is beginning to rise. Amazingly, Betty sits straight up! Unable to contain himself, Igor dashes up to the conservatory. He bursts in, and shouts:

‘€œMaster, Master! The Hills are alive, with the sound of music!’€
