Crypt Keeper Wardrobe: In the opening wraparound segment, the Crypt Keeper is wearing his traditional robe and shooting arrows at a cherub/cupid's heart.
In the closing wraparound segment, the Crypt Keeper is wearing a regular robe and is in a heart shaped bed with a female skeleton.
The Crypt Keeper: Dying for a date? Aching for a little prick of passion? Well be careful what you wish for, or like the young man in tonight's terror tale, you may just get it! I call this nauseating number "Loved to Death".
Mrs. Parker: Oh, honey. Boxer shorts in this town will get you exactly nowhere.
Stronham: Women. You can't live with 'em, but you can't cut 'em up into tiny pieces and tell the neighbors they're in Palm Springs, either.
Edward: These words I thought would never cross these lips: Miranda, I'm fucked out.
Miranda: Well, I'm not exhausted.
The Crypt Keeper: Good old Edward. He should have stuck to sending mash notes. Maybe then he wouldn't have ended up in a state of holy deadlock. (turns to skeleton girl) So, was it good for you too? Ooh, talk about head over heels.
Music: Up Up and Away (5th Dimension)
A still from the closing segment for this episode is the cover for the Tales from the Crypt Season 6 boxset.
