Wow. Josh is a way better security guard.
We literally never did our jobs.
Oh, come on, Pugsley.
You must have read
some kind of spell we could use.
Like a teleport or distraction.
I was practicing one spell,

Aw. Buddy.

[sighs] Are you ready?
Almost. The flies are in the web.
All I have to do now is choose.
[Barney and Norma exclaim]
[Barney whimpers]
No need to be dramatic.
No need for you to be so creepy.
We wouldn't have suspected you
if you hadn't been so suspicious.
So you believe me now?
We saw the footage. I'm so sorry.
Don't be sorry. Be ready. Look.
[women practicing vocal scales]
[indistinct chatter]
What is this?
Pauline is holding auditions
for her next body.
I'm sorry I doubted you, Barborah.
I was just--
Tangled in Pauline's glittery web.
Believe me, I've been there,
and it cost me the best years of my life.
We have to save the next poor soul.
I'll win the audition
and get possessed by Pauline,
then you guys can exorcise her out of me.
Uh, it's too risky.
We did it before with Temeluchus.
We can do it again with Pauline. Trust me.
No offense, kid,
but I don't see you winning this audition.
Look, Norma will kill it.
You just need a little makeover.
Pugsley, anything in that old memory
of yours that could help us out?
This is a lot of magic for one day.
Pugsley, if we don't do something,
Pauline will never stop.
Okay. Okay. I'll try my best.
[Pauline] Good afternoon, my darlings.
Show me what you're made of.
[breathes deeply]
[Pauline] Next.
[gasps] Oh, my ghost.
I can't believe I'm here.
-You got me through the toughest year--
-[Pauline] Next!
-[Pauline] Wrong.
[sings] Let it-- ♪
[Pauline] Go! Now!
Oh, anything but that.
What's wrong with you?
Can't I find a girl who can
actually give me what I'm looking for?
-Heart, soul, the burning passion of a--

Greetings, y'all.
Yes, I know. I look amazing.
I'm a whole new me.
Norma. Ah. She did it.
Mm-mm. Don't you dare use my middle name.
Guards, throw these traitors
into the dungeon.
[grunts] Quick, Barney!
I-I can't hold them long.
[grunts] Stupid skinny jeans. Ah.
Say "cheese".
-[camera shutter clicking]
-Huh? Courtney? [grunts]
-[Pugsley] Argh!
Tut-tut. Pictures cost extra, sweetie.
Take these two away.
Oh, and keep an eye on 'em.
Let's go, Red.
[cell door opens]
Logs, listen to me.
Sorry, Barney. I don't want to do this.
[lock clicks]
Then don't.
I can't lose my job.
That's Pauline Phoenix.
I don't want to get on her bad side.
She's all bad side.
Use your magic to break the lock.
I can't, Barney. Too much magic.
And every time I use it,
I can feel him coming--
[Temeluchus] Back!
Can't you talk to Logs? Sweeten him up?
Have a little… flirt?
Shh. He'll hear.
You do like him, don't you?
But… [groans]
Logs thinks I'm a traitor now.
So, he's just--
A bit more of a challenge,
but still objectively a dreamboat?
No. No.
It's not like
I sit around just obsessing ♪
About his deep brown eyes ♪
It's not like
I lie awake while repressing ♪
Tingly tummy butterflies ♪
It's not like
I filled a notebook up listing ♪
The things we might talk about ♪
It's not as though, even now
I'm resisting the urge to ask him out ♪
I mean, we'd have fun ♪
It's not like he is the one ♪
Sure, he's adorably shy ♪
But he's just some guy ♪
It's not like
I've drawn up plans for our wedding ♪
'Cause that's
A totally stalkerish thing to do ♪
It's not as though
I'm constantly dreading ♪
What he'd say if he only knew ♪
It's not like he's on ♪
My every waking thought ♪
I mean, he's totally hot ♪
But he's just some guy ♪
And when he looks at me… ♪
I'm sure that all he sees… ♪
Is just some guy ♪
I'm just some guy ♪
-Did you say something, Barney?
-Uh, yeah. I, uh--
Go on, say it.
[inhales] Logs,
Pauline is abducting impersonators.
She abducted Jennifer Swan
and she's gonna do it again.
This whole comeback show
is an act, a scam.
She locked us up
'cause we found out, I swear.
We have to stop her.
Also, you're really cute.
Want to go see a movie or something?
[chuckles] Huh?
I knew it.
About Pauline?
No, that you wanted to ask me out.
I've been trying to
ask you out all summer.
I've been a trying to
ask you out all summer.
-[chuckles] Yeah.
Uh, can you let us out now?
You know, Norma in danger?
Pauline bad? Really bad?
Oh. Let me get that.
Do what you gotta do. Shall we say Friday?
W-W-What movie? [chuckles nervously]
Anything but musicals.
[announcer] The Pauline Phoenix
Anniversary Comeback Extravaganza concert
will commence shortly.
Please remember that all video
and photography is strictly prohibited.
[crowd cheering]
Phoenix Parks, your queen has arrived.
[crowd cheering]
Come on, kids. Y'all know the words.
[chanting] Seal the body up.
Seal the body up.
Pull, pull, smash, smash, smash.
Seal the body up. Seal the body up.
Pull, pull, smash, smash, smash.
[menacing music playing]
Bring me my encore!
This ain't my final bye ♪
Yes, my career's been as dead as I am ♪
At least until now ♪
'Cause me, I'm a Phoenix, baby ♪
And y'all, y'all are my spark ♪
And I'm born again, born again ♪
Phantom of the theme park ♪
[cackles] Bless your heart.
Courtney, you got to stop.
What's it take for a demon to get
an uninterrupted sealing spell
around here?
That's Norma onstage, Courtney.
She's under an illusion spell.
I don't care. You don't understand.
I do understand.
Look, I know what it's like
wanting to go home, but--
But you can! You can skip home whenever.
You just choose not to.
I can't go home ever!
What makes you think Pauline has
the kind of power to send you home
if she needs you for this?
I… I don't--
She lied to you.
She used you like she uses everyone.
[Courtney] Pauline!
Is this true?
Is what true, Red?
You don't know
how to send me home, do you?
You just wanted the spell.
Oh. So you figured it out.
I may not be able to open the elevator,
but I can send you to
the underworld another way.
[growls] Bring it on! [grunts]
Courtney, no. That's Norma.
[Temeluchus] Courtney, stop!
Is that… Barney? Why is he in the show?
-It's not a show.
It's too late. He's taken over.
What? Who?
-[Temeluchus] Me!
[laughing maniacally]
[Pugsley] Oh, no you don't!
Oh, don't mind if I do. [grunts]

We need more demons like you down there.
Yes! I'm getting out of here.
Courtney. Are you leaving?
I'm like a thousand years old.
I knew you guys for like five minutes.
I'm sorry.
If you don't die tonight,
