Dear Diary,
Tomorrow is the big day!! my big plan is to marry Violet because she is the onlu one eligible to the fortune!! So if I marry her I can steal her fortune. All I need is a judge, a bride (Violet) a groom (me) and we have to say, ďI DoĒ and sign the marriage papers, and we shall be legally married.
I am all ready to say this is a real marriage. Here it goes, ďNow ladies and gentlemen. I have an important announcement. There is no reason to continue tonightís performance for itís purpose has been served. This has not been a scene of fiction. My marriage to Violet Baudelaire is perfectly legal, and now I am in control of her entire fortune!Ē
It will be perfect, but just inc ase it does not go the way I planned, Sunny (who is hanging out the tower window) will be dropped to her death.

Dear Diary,
Blast!!!! I canít stand those orphans!! Violet signed with her left hand, and she is right handed. So I was about to get arrested for abuse to my children, but the lights went off, and I got away with my cre. If I ever get a hold of them, Iíll get their fortune, and I will kill them with my own two hands!!
