Ah, now we revisit the real reason why Edison has come to visit Vampire Victoria.  Sure, she’s addicted to getting bit, but she’s enough of a lush to handle cravings by now.
Wonder what Victoria’s going to tell her? Well, you won’t find out next time, because there’s still some ‘splaining to do. Maybe too much for one poor soul. You’ll just have to tune in to see!
Also, according to my 1924 Webster’s, a wiseacre is:
1)A sayer of wise things; a learned or wise man
2) One who makes pretensions to great wisdom, hence, in contempt or irony, a would-be wise person; a serious simpleton or dunce.
