Mikey is inspecting and eating his candy haul when Lizzy tells him he is going to give himself a stomach ache. Kyle jumps up from the couch and scares Lizzy and then warns Mikey to save some candy for Sweet Tooth. When Mikey asks who Sweet Tooth is, Kyle tells him the story of Timothy Blake who lived on the same street 50 years ago. Timothy loved Halloween but his parents Mr. Blake and Mrs. Blake would take his candy when he got home. One Halloween Timothy snuck downstairs and found his parents eating all of his candy and having sex on top of it. That night Timothy murdered his parents with a cleaver. After eating the candy in wrappers, he ate the candy inside of his parents stomachs. Now every Halloween he comes back and if he finds a person that doesn't give him a piece of candy, he will take it from them.
That night, Mikey asks Lizzy if the story is true and she tells him it is just a story. Mikey then gets out of bed and puts a candy bar by his door. Lizzy and Kyle then watch Night of the Living Dead and eat some of Mikey's candy. Mikey hears a noise and hides under the covers. Lizzy tells Kyle she can't believe they ate all of the candy and she goes to get pepto bismol. Kyle lays down and wakes up to Sweet Tooth telling him Trick or Treat and Sweet Tooth kills him. Lizzy goes back to the couch and finds Kyle dead and is then killed by Sweet Tooth. Sweet Tooth then goes into Mikey's room and takes the candy bar. Lt. Brandt-Mathis and Alex Mathis come home and find the bodies of Lizzy and Kyle on the couch and Mikey tells them Lizzy and Kyle ate all of his candy.
