Alec Baldwin: It was a moonlit night. Barney Gumble was taking some special carts to a town by the lake.
Ned Flanders: Whenever that owl hoots, a mist rolls in.
Alec Baldwin: Murmured Ned.
Ned: There’s a legend that when the mist’s about, there’s a ghost about too. Take care on the old line, Barney.
Barney: Stupid bird!
Alec Baldwin: Said Barney.
Barney: Owls…mists…ghosts…Ned’s going soft in the head. There’s no mist.
Alec Baldwin: But Barney was wrong.
Barney: What’s that?
Alec Baldwin: Cried Barney.
Espio: It’s an amber light.
Alec Baldwin: Murmured Espio.
Espio: That means, Proceed with caution. Who’s there?
Alec Baldwin: No one replied. Barney crept slowly forward. He stopped by a tree. It had a sign nailed to it: “BEWARE OF THE BRIDGE.” Espio was surprised.
Espio: No one warned us about that before, and look -- the light’s red! And the gates are closed. And there’s a fogman’s coat! But where is its owner?
Alec Baldwin: Then they saw a light moved within a house.
Alec Baldwin: Exclaimed Barney.
Barney: Ned was right!
Espio: Something very strange is happening.
Alec Baldwin: Said Espio.
Espio: I think it’s best we go back.
Barney: So do I!
Alec Baldwin: Agreed Barney. By morning, the mists have cleared. Warrior was talking about the unsafe bridge.
Warrior: Lucky you didn’t cross it last night.
Espio: Yes, but we don’t know who warned us.
Alec Baldwin: Replied Espio. Later that day, he spoke to Barney.
Espio: The bridge has been repaired. We can take our load back along the old line tonight.
Alec Baldwin: Barney really didn’t want to. But when nightfall came, he was sizzling nicely. Suddenly, an owl hooted, and then Principal Skinner thundered by.
Robot: Oh look--Barney’s spooked!
Alec Baldwin: Said a robot.
Barney: Be quiet!
Alec Baldwin: Snapped Barney.
Barney: I’m not scared.
Alec Baldwin: But he was. A little later, the fog came down. As they approached the same area, they saw the amber light again.
Espio: Here we go.
Alec Baldwin: Said Espio. Then, unknown to Barney, the gates mysteriously closed by themselves. And the signal went red. The robots have seen everything, and they were spooked.
Robots: Faster! Faster! There’s a ghost about.
Barney: Stop! Stop!
Alec Baldwin: Yelled Barney. A mysterious figure watched Barney go by. Ahead was a landslide blocking the road. Barney braked hard, but the robots hit some of the rubble and plunged over the ravine. Just then, Espio saw a strange sight coming towards them.
Espio: What’s that?
Alec Baldwin: He said. Diddy Kong laughed.
Diddy Kong: That’s our ghost -- it’s Harry Cupper, the engineer!
Alec Baldwin: Harry Cupper was very cross.
Harry Cupper: I tried to warn you about the bridge. Why didn’t you pay attention?
Espio: We’re sorry.
Alec Baldwin: Replied Espio.
Espio: Is there anything we can do to thank you?
Harry: I’d like to operate that old house. If you let me, I promise I won’t spook Barney again.
Alec Baldwin: And in a little while, Harry’s wish was granted.
Stan Marsh: You will be really useful.
Alec Baldwin: Said Stan Marsh.
Stan Marsh: Let’s hear a hearty thank you to the friendliest, uh, ghost in Springfield.
Alec Baldwin: Everyone cheered. Especially Barney, who was the happiest of all.
