Frank and Sadie awake to find a goat in their apartment. The goat has a note attatched (from themselves) telling them that the goat is very important and must be protected.
A Chupacabra comes to their door, pretending to be a farmer and asking for the goat. Although the Doyles are initially reluctant, and so the Chupacabra tells them the story of how he was once a handsome prince. His love for Carlotta, a peasant girl, angered a witch, who tricked them eating enchanted apples. The apples turned him into a Chupacabra and Carlotta into a goat. The only way for him to break the curse would be to drink all of Carlotta-in-goat's-form's blood. Touched, the Doyle's give him the goat.
He drains the goat's blood and it turns back into Carlotta, who is distressed by his monstrous appearance. The witch appears, telling them that the only way to change the Chupacabra back into a prince would be via true love's kiss. Carlotta does not want to kiss him.
Frank and Sadie, wanting everyone out of their apartment, spot a fanny-pack on the witch, where she keeps an emergency apple to reverse the spell. The point it out to the Chupacabra, who drains the apple with his hollow fangs and transforms back into a human.
Crone: And now some punishment for you two for letting me down.
Frank: Trust me, all of you being here is punishment enough.
Frank: Do you recall the particular malady of our friend Officer Dave Henderson?
Sadie: Yes of course, he's a werewolf.
Frank: No, the other malady.
Sadie: Accidentally married to a vampire, the natural enemy of werewolves.
Frank: Also true, but 'no' again.
Sadie: His left-handedness!
Frank: No, but right direction!
Sadie: He talks funny.
Frank: So do you.
Sadie: I never.
Frank: Would you like a hint?
Sadie: Yes, give me a hint. No! Wait! Never mind! Shut up! I have it! Henderson is allergic to bee stings!
Frank: Exactly correct! And do you recall furthermore what that meant?
Sadie: Our date to the apiary was not to be!
Sadie: He wears a ridiculous fanny pack!
Frank: Yes! The only kind that there is!
