  • Quotes

    • Edward: I thought these words would never cross these lips: Miranda, I'm f***ed out.
      Miranda: I'm not f***ed out!

    • [Opening wraparound segment.]
      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".

      [Closing wraparound segment.]
      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. [laughs]
