Episode 953 - The Count Woos the Countess
HBO Max Premiere: Wednesday May 27, 2020

The Count is love sick, he tells Maria he is in love with the Countess von Numeral who lives above the drug store: she's Transylvanian, and she loves to count. Maria suggests that he tells her how he feels, but The Count insists on wooing her. The Count brings The Countess flowers and bat-shaped chocolates, but all she does is count her gifts. The Count is devastated, and Maria urges him to profess his love, once again. Then, The Count announces himself to the Countess, and declares that he has one more thing for her to Count. He gives her a kiss, which is followed by a moment of silence, until she counts it: "one kiss!" The Count says that he hopes The Countess can count to 100.
