Caption This! Challenge, week 2

Here's a recap from last week:
Caption This! is another chance for you to get in on the Helluva Halloween fun and another chance to enter to win the Helluva Halloween Tricks and Treats Grab Bag!  Each Sunday I'm going to post a couple of spooky, Halloweenish pictures for you.  Each captures a moment in time that may be telling a Helluva Halloween story.  Your job is to caption them and tell that story.  You can tell your own brief creepy story, retell your favorite, quote a scary movie or book -- whatever you think suits the picture (but if you DO happen to quote a book you may get bonus points -- this is a book blog, after all!)  You can enter every week for every picture, so this is a way to get lots of entries into the grab bag...

Rules:
  1. Open to everyone, everywhere.
  2. Leave your caption(s) in the comments, and if you are quoting someone/thing make sure you give them credit! (ie leave the title of the movie, book, etc)  If you are quoting a book, you get a bonus entry if you can "prove" it (give me a page number, find the quote listed on a quotes page or Goodreads, etc)
  3. Try to keep captions fairly brief, 4 lines max.
  4. Remember, this is Halloween.  Funny's fine, but make sure it's related to Halloween, or at least something creepy.
  5. All captions count for points for those entered in the Grab Bag giveaway.  I'll keep track, you don't have to worry about that.
  6. You don't have to tell a complete story (beginning, middle, end); these are captions for moments in time -- it's okay to leave us in suspense, or make us wonder what's around the corner there...You can give us the "first line" or "last line" of the story you see in the picture -- whatever you think captures the haunted spirit of it.
  7. Make sure you specify which picture(s) you are captioning (saying #1, #2, etc is fine)

  1. Caption for scene #3:

    "You have a pretty nose. I really want a nose again." He stopped snarling long enough to lick his lips, then he went right back to it. His tongue was a gruesomely scarred purple thing, as if he chewed it when bored. "And so do my friends."

    Excerpted from an ARC of The Scorch Trials by James Dashner, pg. 186.

  2. #2: "See? It's making me whole again. Every drop of blood you spill puts more flesh on my bones. And we both want that don't we?" - Frank Cotton, Hellraiser (1987)

    #3: "Let go. Be afraid. You all taste so much better when you're afraid." -Pennywise, It (1990)

  3. I'll give it ago.

    1) Suddenly Susie realized that perhaps her mother wasn't joking when she said that if she didn't clean up her room the monster under the bed was going to steal all of her toys.

    2)Plastic Surgery has gotten really advanced of late. They even have removable faces. Here is Joan Rivers and hers.

    3) Bobby's mom regretted not reading the fine lines for "Boo the clown: He'll kill You "Literally".

  4. #1: Little Cindy always found it annoying that Umberto wanted to play spelling games late into the wee hours.

    #2: I thought I had fallen in love with him... until he revealed a completely new side of himself to me.

    sorry... nothing for #3 --- I saw the Century 21 sign in the background and thought I could work with scary realtors... but then got stuck.

  5. #1:
    I want to sleep, I want dreams to pull me from this world and make me forget. To stop the memories from swirling around me. To put an end to this ache that consumes me.
