Cleo is reclining on a creeptastic chaise at her palace when one of her servants arrives to deliver a phone on a silver platter.
Cleo Hello. You may speak.
Clawdeen Cleo, it's Clawdeen. I just heard that Deuce is lurking to get you a freaktacular present.
Cleo What! What kind of present?
Clawdeen I overheard him ask Clawd where to buy jewelry. Clad told Deuce to talk to Abbey.
Cleo Abbey? Why would he talk to her?
Clawdeen No idea. I'll call Frankie and see if she knows. Those two are pretty tightly stitched together.
The ghouls hang up. Cut to Frankie, who is at home helping her dad clean the lab. The lab phone rings.
Clawdeen Hi Frankie. Have you talked to Abbey today?
Frankie No, I'm putting every spark of energy into cleaning the lab so I can earn a bonus allowance to buy a voltage dress for Draculaura's Sweet 1600 party. Why?
Clawdeen Can you call her and see if she's talked to Deuce? Apparently the two of them are spooking around to surprise Cleo.
Frankie Surprise? What do you mean?
Clawdeen Just ask her about Deuce and see what she says.
Frankie Okay, bye.
Frankie hangs up with Clawdeen and calls Abbey. Abbey picks up on the first ring.
Frankie No, it's Frankie.
Abbey Oh, was expecting Deuce.
Frankie Why? What's going on?
Abbey Not to tell you. Deuce and I have plan. Must go. (click)
Frankie Wait! What? You and Deuce have plans. What kind of plans?
Frankie hangs up and calls Draculaura.
Frankie Oh my goth. I think something is going on between Deuce and Abbey. What should I do? Should I tell Cleo?
Draculaura Slow down, Frankie. What are you talking about?
Frankie Clawdeen called to find out if Abbey has told me anything about her and Deuce spooking around behind Cleo's back/ Whan I ask Abbey, she got all icy and hung up.
Draculaura There's got to be a mistake. I'll call Clawd. If Deuce was cheating on Cleo, he would know.
Draculaura hangs up the phone and dials her boyfriend.
Draculaura A fangtastic boyfriend tells his ghoulfriend everything, right?
Clawd Umm, okay. Where are you going with this, Draculaura?
Draculaura Tell me what you know about Deuce and Abbey? Is Deuce cheating on Cleo?
Clawd What! No, where did you hear that?
Draculaura Well, Clawdeen told Frankie that Deuce an Abbey were spooking around, and when Frankie called Abbey to ask what was going on, Abbey put the big freeze on the conversation and hung up.
Clawd (Laughing). I don't know howl you ghouls do it, but you have your stories dead wrong. Deuce wanted to surprise Cleo by taking her on a romantic ice skating date. He asked me where to get some spooktacular ice for Cleo, and I told him to call Abbey. Right now she's helping him freeze a rink in his backyard.
Draculaura Oh, that's so scary-sweet. I guess that ghostly gossip got horrifyingly morphed. May be we could all go ice skating on Deuce and Abbey's rink, too?
