[Ruby has just showed Hannah her ornate sketches for Orson's coronation outfit]
W-w-wow. Very... cape-y.
Aw, do I have to wear that? I look like a dork in a crown.
Yes. You will be the Prince of Dorkness.
[Hannah laughs and Orson groans]
What? Dorkness is not good? What is a dork?
Can we just *go*? I'm dying of embarrassment.
It is a bit late for that, son.

Oddly enough, though I haven't yet seen the original Scary Godmother movie (Spooktacular), I've seen this one _twice_.
Basic premise - the plucky little girl heroine Hannah became friends with the Halloween creatures of the Fright Side last Halloween, and is now looking forward to a wonderful holiday this year. Unfortunately, her mean older cousin Jimmy got terribly scared (unexpected side effect of a mean Halloween joke he played on Hannah last year) and is terrified of it this year. So he plots to keep Chri- er, Halloween from coming! But how?
The interplay between the actions of Jimmy (threatening Halloween) and Hannah (saving it) and the consequences of those actions on the Fright Side makes up the bulk of the movie. Eventually there is a happy ending. Not an earthshaking piece of cinema, but great for kids on H- can't type it again. Next year, I'll have to get the first movie, and have a double feature for the kids and their friends.
My favorite line - when Scary Godmother realizes that something is threatening H-, she cries out, "Somethings's bad! Black socks with sandals bad!"
