Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • The scene where Gomez carves a jack-o-lantern like Fester was reused in the second season Halloween episode. The difference is that in this one Gomez got the knife in the mail, and in the other it was sharpened.

    • When Morticia and Gomez read the Halloween poem, Gomez says "Drawn by 8 beautiful bats", but the names, and I quote, are;
      Morticia: Come Flitter, come Flatter, come Flapper and Flier.
      Uncle Fester: Come Chitter, come Chatter, come Vicious Vampire!

      That's only 7 bats!

    • As Rickles looks back at Uncle Fester during the poetry reading, Fester's lightblub flicks off for a second. It was obviously unintentional since the background lighting didn't change. (as it is when he takes the bulb out of his mouth).

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Gomez: My new carving knife.
      Wednesday: Nice knife. Can I play Autopsy with it?
      Gomez: Well, darling, Autopsy's a fine game. But this is for carving works of art. (tests the knife on his hair) Either I've got tough hair or this knife needs sharpening.

    • Fester: Hurry up, Gomez.
      Gomez: You getting tired, Uncle Fester?
      Fester: Good. I want to get the inner you.
      Gomez: Good. I want to get the inner you.
      Fester: Not with that.
      Gomez: That's just for carving.
      Fester: That's what I'm afraid of.
      Gomez: Not for carving you, for carving your likeness.
      Fester: Oh.

    • Morticia: I do think our guests are charming, don't you?
      Gomez: Yes, especially the one with the scar.
      Morticia: Reminds me of Rupert Stix.
      Gomez: Ohhh...
      Morticia: Has the same beautiful beady eyes.
      Gomez: I thought we had agreed, Morticia, never to mention the name of Rupert Stix again.
      Morticia: Gomez, darling, you're not still jealous?
      Gomez: You were engaged to him.
      Morticia: Oh, well I was just a silly young girl then. I was fascinated by his long fingernails and the way his lip curled when he smiled.
      Gomez: He was a handsome devil.

    • Morticia: (to Gomez) When we're together, darling, every night is Halloween.

    • Gomez: "It was Halloween evening and through the abode, not a creature was stirring, not even a toad. Jack o'lanterns are hung on the gallows with care."
      Morticia: "To guide sister witch as she flies through the air."
      Gomez: Drawn by eight beautiful bats. "And she calls out to them."
      Morticia: "Come Flitter, come Flutter, come Flapper and Flyer."
      Fester: "Come Chitter, come Chatter, come Vicious Vampire!" Oh, excuse me.

    • Gomez: We call it Bobbing for the Crab. A real challenge.
      Marty: Yeah, but that crab's alive!
      Fester: And full of snap, too.
      Morticia: That's the challenge.

    • Morticia: Isn't that absolutely amazing? Would you like to try it again?
      Marty: Try it again? I'd rather wrestle a lion!
      Morticia: Oh, would you? Wonderful! Kitty? Here Kitty, Kitty.

    • Marty: They want to play games, we'll play 'em a game. A game that'll get us the loot.
      Claude: Look, money isn't everything.
      Marty: It's enough. Claude and I got a game we want to play. It's called Hide and Seek.
      Gomez: Hide and Seek? Sounds rather mild compared to Bobbing for Crabs.
