Transcript of Episode 9: Halloween is Awesome!
Virginia: I’m so excited.
Andrew: You seem extremely excited.
Virginia: It is my favorite holiday for a number of reasons. To me, Halloween is the last of the holidays where you aren’t pressured to celebrate.
Nick: What about Thanksgiving?
Virginia: There’s no pressure with Halloween. You can choose not to celebrate it. If you try to do the same thing with Christmas, you might as well drop off the face of the planet.

Andrew: He’ll never forget that birthday present.
Nick: I won’t!
Virginia: You’ll be burping it eight hours from now. Anyway, there’s this party where they are very serious about it. They go out of their minds with professional makeup.
Nick: Like spending five grand on a costume.
