* FailedASpotCheck: Despite the fact that she know that they're surrounded by coffins, Lisa is too focused on Burns' book to notice Burns' vampire minions rising from them and closing in on Bart and her. Even with their audible moaning and Bart trying to get her attention. It isn't till one of the vampires rakes his claw on the page she's reading that she finally sees they've surrounded them.

This story also begins with a nightmare as Bart dreams of his school bus losing control and being run over by a semi-truck. He awakens still a little shaken by it (not helped with Homer blowing a blow-horn that he stole from a marina in his ears). As Lisa and he head for the school bus in rainy weather, Bart finds that Skinner is onboard, a punishment from his mother. Halfway into the bus ride, they pick up Groundskeeper Willie who had gotten stranded after killing his mule. Soon, Bart notices a gremlin has attached itself to the side of the bus and is slowly picking it apart. He tries to warn the others but every time he does so, the gremlin hides. The first time, they just think he's crazy. The second time Otto assumes he's talking about Hans Moleman who was driving alongside them, so Otto knocks him off the road. Hans' car stops before it can hit a tree...[[TheAllegedCar then explodes anyway]], [[TakeThat because it's an AMC Gremlin]].
