  • Quotes

    • (The Addams are going through the attic)
      Gomez: Great guns in August! Family you won't believe what I found.
      Pugsley: (wrapping Wednesday up in mummy wrap) Uncle Fester's first head?
      Wednesday: Does the third eye still blink?

    • Pugsley: Dad, Uncle Fester, what's the big deal about some old horn?
      Gomez: Only the greatest game we ever played, son.
      Fester: Back when we were little friars like you.
      Gomez: First, we'd blow the horn loud as we could.
      Fester: (gleefuly) Hopefully passing out from hyperventilation!
      Gomez: And Lurch would have until midnight to find us!
      Morticia: And he always did.
      Gomez: (woeful) Ah, that's right Tisch. In all those years we never could shake the big fella, except that one time we tied him to the fault line.
      Fester: Gomez, we were but young pups and Lurch was well into puberty. (is grabbed by Gomez and flung to the floor) Hey! AHH!
      Gomez: (sitting on Fester) Young pups? Imperial idea, Fester!
      Fester: Gomez, you nearly broke a rib! (chuckles) Wanna try again?

    • (Discussing where to hide from Lurch)
      Fester: Hey! We could always hide in my trench coat.
      Gomez: And suffer the same fate as Aunt Sticky when she climbed in?
      Fester: Oh, yeah. I'm still having her electronically removed.

    • (Fester and Gomez are crawling through the desert)
      Gomez: (dried out) Fester...the...the vultures are circling.
      Fester: Well if you'd stop moving, maybe one will fly down and start pecking.

    • Morticia: Oh, Gomez, remember what I wore on our honeymoon? (holds up a pair of stocks)
      Gomez: Ah, Tish! You looked so good in mahogany...

    • Fester: I tell ya, Gomez, that palooka's got eyes in the back of his head!... Or was that Cousin Fluent?
      Gomez: No, he had ears on his ankles!
      Fester: Oh, yeah. Man, did he have a hard time buying shoes...
