Hello sunshine78,

The "big stuff" here refers to what Stephen gives examples of later in the sentence, that is, the very difficult magic needed to saw a person in half, etc.. "in no time" means very soon. To "be on to" something means that he will get or arrive to it.

So what he means is that very soon he will be able to do all of these difficult tricks.

woow.. good explanation, thanks a lot.

I'd love to Halloween,it's so funny. But I 've never join the Halloween party in china. I am looking forward to having a chance to get Halloween party in the furture.

i already have watch this video, funny video this is story about Halloween Party where Step & Aslie try to prepare the Halloween party with concept as the magician, but unfortunately the property for magic it doesn't work,

this is a good lesson

It's really funny video. We have no Halloween day in our country. I could learn about culture and history of Holloween day by seeing this video. thanks. By the way, I have a little curiosity about 'Hallowe'en' . why the apostrophe is there(between 'we' and 'en')? It's very small small curiosity..

Hello silverwing,

The word 'Hallowe'en' is a conflation of a longer name: 'All Hallows Even' ('even' is an old spelling for 'evening' and 'hallows' means 'holy' or 'saints'). The apostrophe is there in place of the missing letter 'v'.

Thank you for the interesting question!

How can I download the film?

Hello Veronika,

I'm afraid the films on the site cannot be downloaded for technical and legal reasons. You can download the transcript and you can watch the film as many times as you wish online, however.
