03x15 - Girl Meets World of Terror 3

Happy Halloween, everybody!


What do you mean, no?

We outgrew it, Matthews.

No Halloween no more?

We decided. We had a meeting.

There was no meeting.

That was just me?

We're in high school now, Mr. Matthews.

We grew up.

Time to outgrow weird masks and costumes.

We're not trick or treating anymore.

Small potatoes, Matthews.

Not important. Move on.

Not important? Well...

Corey and Maya: You've brought us to today's lesson!

(Sobs) I didn't mean to!

There are no small decisions in life.

Every decision that you make affects who you are, and every action you take or don't take has consequences, and it affects the people around you.

We get it, Dad. People change people.

What if they never got the chance?


So, you've made a decision about Halloween.

"Small potatoes," you say.

"Not important," you say.

Are we important?



(Chuckles) No. You think so, but no. No!

No. No.


Save me, Farkle.

He's talking chaos theory.

A mathematical hypothesis postulating that within our universal complexity any small alterations can have vast repercussions.

You brainiac!

You brainiac!

I'm not sure anyone understands what you said. Explain it for the common person.

You do something over here, it can affect what happens over there!


Over here.


Over there.


It's for science, Lucas.

Thanks, Riles.

(Angrily) Only I call her "Riles."

Okay, Peaches.

Only I call her "Peaches."

But the relationship that matters most is you and me, right?

(Students muttering)

Hey, we don't make the rules around here.

Wait. Yes we do. And if we don't wanna do Halloween, we don't gotta do Halloween!

(Thunder crashes)

(Spooky music playing)

(Distorted) Welcome to another Halloween Scary Time Theater.

(Students moan) No!

I'm your ghost, Auggie Matthews!

What made us become who we are?

What if it never happened?

Oh! That's scary!

Hello, best friends!

Did you miss me? Cause I missed you!

Good sunshiny morning, Barry.

(Thunder crashes)

Oh... (Blows raspberry) ...on you, stormy day!

I am sunshiny on the inside.

(Bell rings)

Halloween's tomorrow, Barry? What should we go as?

Oh, I know! Let's go as the same thing we go as every year!

A good little girl and her best friend bear!

(Loudly) Hello!

(Emotionlessly) Don't look me in the eyes.

Hello. I would stay and talk, but the bell rang and that means that class is starting.

If I don't leave now, I'll be late for being early.

Don't skip, bowhead.

(Distorted) What if the world we lived in was a Halloween world where everything was different but you didn't even know?

Are you as frightened as I am?

You will be.

Sir Isaac Newton!

Farkle time, sir?

If you must.

Farkle time.

It's what I'm going as for Halloween!

It's a quarter after Farkle!

(Annoyingly) Ha!

Isaac Newton!

Gravity, sir!

He sat under a tree, apple fell on his head.

He said, "Hey, Gravity!" Thank you, I am Farkle!

But you're not just talking about science gravity, right, Daddy?

You're talking about the gravity of our lives!

No, I mean gravity.

History class is not about poetry.

Names and dates.

History is a collection of names and dates.

Isaac Newton. Born 1643. Died 1727.

Correct. And that's what makes you so smart.

Smarter than my arch-nemesis, Back-Of-The-Class Smackle?

Hey. Do I have something on me?

Oh. Ha, ha. This is a funny game that me and Maya play.

Okay, Maya. I'll do one at you now.

(Ominous music plays)

No hats in class, Mr. Friar.

(Coldly) I am my hat, teacher-man.

Hey, Friar. You as tough as everyone thinks you are?

Hey, Hart. Are you?

(Bell rings)

Hey, Daddy!

Did you ever think that our being together in a class like history is actually a wonderful opportunity for you to teach me and all of my friends about life?

(Mockingly) "All of my friends."

No. Names and dates.

Names and dates are the secret of life, Riley.

Okay. Thank you.

You got something for me, Matthews?

This will get you a C+, just like you asked!

Hey, why do you always make me do your homework for you?

Are you my bully?

"Don't take away my lunch money, Bully McGee!"


I don't want your money, bowhead.

Then why do you pick on me?

How can I not? You're a strange duck, Matthews.

(Snorts) I'm a strange duck. Quack!

Hey. This looks better than usual.

You're sure this is a C+?

It might be a B-.

I told you never a B-. Why would you do that?

Because... you're smarter than you want people to believe, Maya.

Why would you do that?

When I say C+, I mean C+.

Nobody cares about a C+.

The minute I start to get a B-, teachers think I have potential.

They'd start to call on me. I wouldn't like that.

I would blame somebody for that.

You do have potential, Maya.

What you don't have is a good influence. Quack!

If he ever calls on me, you're finished.

(Menacingly) Quack.

Lucas: You gonna let her talk to you like that?

Who said that?

I'm gonna tell you a scary story.


In this world, there are wolves and there are sheep.

The wolves lurk around dark corners.

They start by asking you to do their homework.

But before you know it, the wolf pounces and you end up dinner.

Because there are sheep and there are wolves.

I'm a duck!

I regret talking.

You barely ever do, you know.

You always just hang around by yourself.

I don't mean to pry...

Then don't.

Okay, I won't, because you asked me not to.

Why don't you have any friends?

I had a friend... back in Texas.

Do you miss him?


(Giggles) You miss him.

You miss him and that is why you're angry all the time.

Because your best friend is a hat.

This is why I don't talk to people.

Riley, wolves eat sheep.

Well, as long as they don't...

They eat ducks, too.

Yikey McShmikey!

Stand up for yourself, Riley.

That's the best advice I could give you.

Why do you care what happens to me, huh? Why do you care?

I'm not saying that I do or I don't.

But right now, you're like a defenseless sheep, and I hate seeing little animals get themselves hurt.

I don't know why.

Maybe someday, I might like to be a...

Zoo keeper?


Pet shop boy?


Farmer with chickies?


Person who chooses which animal sounds are going to be in those books?




(Distorted) What if the world we lived in was a Halloween world where everything was different, but you didn't even know?

You will not believe what that boy did to me today!

(Normal voice) I guess some things never change.

What'd I do, Ava?

I wanted us to wear the same costume so everyone could see how great we are together.


But I'm a ghost! You didn't tell me you wanted to be butterfly.

Ava, you should really go easy on him. He's a good little boy.

Yeah, I'm a good little boy.

Please don't make me wear this.

It's just not something a Doy would do.


Hey, Lovebuckets.

I'm tryin' to make this work.

Would ya use your real name?

(Scared) Dewey! My name is Dewey!

(Panicked breathing)

But your name is Doy, and I'm your Lovebuckets, Ava!


Why is everyone ignoring me?

You guys are really kind of adorable.

I wonder what it would be like if Riley had a brother or a sister?

She does! It's me!


Hello, Mother!

Sorry I'm two minutes late.

Squirrels sure are cute, but they don't like it when you squeeze 'em.

But it's so hard no to.

I'm gonna need a rabies shot.

You know what? One kid is enough.

Oh no. I was never born.

(Thunder crashes)

(Spooky music playing)

I really am a ghost.

Maya never met Riley, people never changed people, Riley's crazy, and I was never born.

I want to be born! I have to make things the way they're supposed to be!

Here's an opportunity!

Stop hitting on me!

I'm not hitting on you. You're my arch-nemesis. Also, what is "hit on you"?

Why would I ever hit on you?

Because this is why.


What the...?



Thank you.


Well, that didn't go well at all.


Have you ever thought that you and I could be something more than arch-nemeseses?

Taking over the world is a one-person operation, Smackle.

That seems lonely.

Well, I don't see any solution to that.

Okay. There's only one way to make this right.

I need to go back to where it all began!

But how could I do that unless I was a real ghost?

Oh yeah!

♪ Do, do, do, doodalee, doodalee, doo ♪

Doodalee, doodalee, doo...

Here we go!

Why'd you ask me to come here?

I didn't ask you to come here.

Then what's this note that suddenly appeared in my pocket?

"Dear Peaches..."

Why would you call me "Peaches"?

Nobody calls me Peaches. Why would you call me Peaches?

"Please come through my window and make everything right."

What does that mean, strange duck?

I don't know. I didn't write it.

Although, it does seem like something I would write, especially to you.

Why to me?

Because you were meant to be best friends, that's why!

Thunder! Lightning!

(Thunder crashes)


Nice place you got.

Spend a lot of time here?

Not really.

Why not?

Because whenever I sit here I get... lonely.

Lucas told me that I shouldn't let you boss me around... that I should stand up to you.

Yeah? You got that in you, Quacky?


Why not?

Because... I don't think that you're a wolf.

Why not?

Because I think something happened in your life that made you the way you are.

Maybe you're angry because you have nobody to tell.

I've plenty of people to tell.

I don't think so.


Let me make something real clear to you right now.

My life is none of your business.

You have no right to talk to me like that.

You have no right to talk to me at all.

(Spooky music playing)

Oh no!

Am I fading away?

My daughter suggested that events of history can have an effect on individual lives, as if things happen for a reason and the world is more than names and dates.

What do you think?

Is this worth our consideration?

Ms. Hart?

You called on me.


Why would you call on me?


B-, Ms. Hart.


Three o'clock. Hallway.

(Whispers) Uh-oh.

(Distorted) This is Halloween Scary Time Theater for real.

I've always enjoyed being your ghost, and now I am very scared.

I am August Matthews, and I really want to be here.

School's over, you know.

Do you ever feel like everything's going wrong in the world and it's all your fault, but you don't know why?

Every day.

Do you think that there could be another world where history isn't just about names and dates?

Yes, I've thought about it, Riley, because you asked me to, and that's important.

What if that's a better world?

Well, let's see. Sir Isaac Newton. Is he important?

Yes. We are all important. And he discovered gravity.

Make me see why that's important to me, Dad.

I know you can do it.

Well, I've always believed in the world, Riley.

And that there's a force in it strong enough to keep us from flying away.

I believe that force knows how to hold on to us... and to you.

Thank you, Dad. That changes me.

That changes you?

That you care enough to show me that history is more than names and dates.

I'll never forget it.

You won't?


I feel changed myself.

(Chalk scratching)

People seem to change people.

Goodbye, Mom. You were the best mom I never had.

Goodbye, couch.

I'm sorry I made crumbs on you.

I just wanted you to have some.

Goodbye, fireplace.

I didn't even know we had you.

That's it! We're through!

We were a thing?

What happened?

Say "turtle."


I just can't anymore.

Say "hippopotamus."


So what do I do? Write him a letter? You do it.

Let him down gently. I'm tired.

So, that's it? It's over? No more me and you?

No more! Have a great rest of your life with you and your "tut-ull."

(Breathing excitedly)

Oh, great. This. (Breathing excitedly)


Wonderful. Do you have any cheese?

I'm no good alone.


How was that?

Goodbye, Ava. I love you.

Did you say something?



(Wolves howling)

Yeah, I gotta say, bowhead, not a lot of people would be on time for this party.

Well, than they're rude.

How can you possibly look at someone like me and see a B-?

I see better than that.

Sit down!

I'm not sitting next to you.

Sit down.

I'm not sitting next to you, I'm Maya Hart.

Sit down!

Okay. Now you talk to me.

No. I throw stuff at you and make you do my homework.

Nope. Now you talk to me.


Because I'm a good listener.

Maybe there's something we could say that would change each other.

I don't wanna change.

I heard that your father's gone.

I'm a really good listener.

I know you're here, cowboy.

Maybe you're right. So maybe I'm not as tough as people think I am.

Maybe I don't want to be. Ya happy, you-you... you huckleberry?

You were there the whole time?

I just felt like I wasn't supposed to let anything happen.

You think she needs protecting from me?

Maybe not anymore.

So... Farkle.

Yes, Smackle?

Do you think that some day you and I could be something more than arch-nemeseses?

How do you propose that that happen?

Ahh... ahh... sneeze.

Okay. (Chuckles)

(Thunder crashes)



Auggie? What are you doing in my school?

You see me?

Who's this?

My kid brother.

I am? I was born? Yay!

And now you're dead. (Sarcastically) Yay!

Auggie: Yay...!

Come back!

Riley, what are you doing?

Don't you know what today is?

It's the first day of Spring, and it's beautiful outside.


Open a window, kiddo.

Smell the flowers.


Yeah. Now the butterflies can come in to play.
