- Lightning McQueen: Gosh it sure is a nice night.
- Sally Carrera: It sure is a nice night.
- Lightning McQueen: I sure hope Mater isn't waiting around anywhere to scare me, because I'll freak out.
- [Mater jumps down and scares McQueen]
- Lightning McQueen: AHHHH!
- Tow Mater: [laughing] Oh, buddy! You look like you've just seen... the Ghostlight!
- Sheriff: Mater! Don't mock the Ghostlight!
- Lightning McQueen: What is the Ghostlight?
- [silence for 10 seconds]
- Sheriff: The Ghostlight is a glowing orb of blue translucent light that haunts these very parts.
- Tow Mater: Nah, don't be too scared, buddy, it ain't real.
- Sheriff: It is real! It all started on a night like tonight. The song dogs were wailin' at the moon of Cadillac Range while the summer wind blew hot like the breath of Zozobra. A young couple was heading down this very stretch of the mother road when they spotted an unnatural blue glow, and all that was left were two out-of-state license plates. So remember: The one thing that angers the Ghostlight more than anything else is the sound of clanking metal.
- [Mater's metal body clanks and tries to keeps it from shaking]
- Sheriff: As you head home tonight, keep an eye out. The Ghostlight could be anywhere. Well, good night!
- Sally Carrera: Whew, I'm bushed. Good night!
- All cars: Good night.
- [All drive off to their homes and turn lights off]
- Tow Mater: Uh, good night.
- [Street and neon lights shut off]
- Different Time...
- Tow Mater: [Realizing the "Ghost Light" is a lamp] Hey! Wait a minute...
- All cars: [Laughing]
