Lead Line Clutches


Bijou Theatre


Slimer, while pretending to be driving a race car, happened upon the Bijou Theatre. They were showing Haunted Spaceship in 3D, which was Slimer's favorite movie. The movie's lead monster grabbed Slimer! It was just Bud in a costume to promote the movie. He was working at the theater to make some extra money. Slimer put on the mask and scared Bud. Bud invited Slimer to help clean up and he could get in for free. Slimer agreed and was assigned to sweep in the projection room while Bud opened up the concession stand. Slimer happily cleaned up but got caught in the projector reel. Just outside, Professor Dweeb passed by the theater and noticed Haunted Spaceship was being shown, which was was his favorite movie, as well.

Dweeb decided to take in a showing and took Elizabeth along even though she wanted to see "Bunkie the Wonder Dog." Slimer got his 3D glasses and concessions from Bud then went to go watch his free movie. Dweeb soon entered the theater and snuck Elizabeth in. She kept blowing razz berries from Dweeb's pocket as he hurried past Bud. Slimer found a seat but got heckled for blocking the view. He sat down in his seat but got caught in gum. Slimer lost his popcorn and drink while trying to dislodge himself from the gum. It all rained down on Dweeb and Elizabeth. Dweeb turned and yelled out angrily but sulked back when someone yelled back at him. Slimer was scared by a scene in the movie and went to the bathroom. Dweeb spotted Slimer and chased him back into the theater room. Slimer, Dweeb, and Elizabeth jumped into the movie and encountered the Squid Monster.

Dweeb launched his Lead Line Clutches at Slimer but he dodged it. The device clamped on the Squid Monster's head instead. Slimer hid out of the way as the Squid Monster approached. Elizabeth tried to warn Dweeb but it was too late. To add insult to injury, Dweeb couldn't stop insulting the monster. The monster swept the clamp off and dropped Dweeb and Elizabeth down into a watery pit. Dweeb resigned himself and declared Elizabeth could choose the next movie. She bit his nose and didn't let go. Bud found Slimer in the lobby and said his boss wanted Slimer to come back the next day. Slimer declined and left the theater.
