Hank and Luis are at the Youth Center. Hank sees Luis with a gun, and asks him if he is going to pull in trick-or-treaters for being over the blood sugar level. Luis says that the mugger was spotted again, and he just wants to be prepared because the mugger might be armed. Luis said that he wasn't expecting trouble at the center, but that 1 or 2 kids may want to cause mischief. Luis stated that he wanted everyone to have a good time. Hank said that since he used to be one of those kids, it may be easier for him to spot one of the troublemakers. He said that he would keep one eye on the kids, and one eye on Sheridan. Luis warns Hank again about getting involved with the Cranes. Hank replied, " I only want to get mixed up with one of them." Luis says that you get one, you get them all, and they are dangerous. They won't think twice about crushing anyone who gets in their way. Hank tells Luis that he is wrong about Sheridan. Luis says that Sheridan may have Hank snowed because of her looks, but there is a side to her that Hank hasn't seen yet. Hank replies that he can't wait to see it.
At the Crane Mansion, Sheridan decides to go to the Dance as a mugger. Ethan tells Sheridan that she better be careful. or Officer Lopez-Fitzgerald may arrest her. Gwen and Ethan are also going to the dance. Ethan decides to go as the Phantom of the Opera, and Gwen decides to go as the Cat Woman. Gwen wants to fix Theresa up with the guy that Theresa has a crush on. Sheridan wonders why Gwen would want to play matchmaker for Theresa. Ethan says that Gwen's motives aren't all that altruistic, she just wants to eliminate who she thinks is her competition for Ethan's affection. Ethan tells Gwen how much he loves her. Sheridan tells them that she is going with Hank. She describes him as a nice man, but she is not serious about him. Julian sees Ethan with his cape, and thinks that Ethan is going to the opera. Ethan tells him that he is going to the Halloween dance, and Julian can't believe that Ethan wants to mingle with the locals. He then accuses Ethan of wanting to meet up with Theresa, but that Ethan better be aware of Theresa's brother. Gwen comes in, and Julian tells her that she looks ravishing in her costume, he then tells Ethan not to do anything that he wouldn't do. Ethan and Gwen leave.
In Theresa's room, she and Whitney are dressed as women from the 18th or 19th century. Theresa has on a blonde wig. She says that she is wearing the gown of her dreams. She just wishes that Ethan could see her in it. She then decides that maybe she will skip the dance altogether, and go to the Crane Mansion, and be Ethan's Halloween treat. Whitney asks," Can't you just forget about Ethan for one night and have some fun?" Pilar walks in and said that it might be difficult because Ethan and Gwen would be at the dance. She heard them talking about it. Pilar tells Theresa to stay away from Ethan and Gwen. She also tells Theresa what they will be dressed as.

Charity is in some sea creature costume, and can barely walk in the fins. Kay is dressed as an exotic dancer, and Simone is dressed as either Carmen Miranda or the Chiquita Banana Girl.
