The Addams Family


[repeated line]
Gomez: "TISH. That's French."

[repeated line] [gong]
Lurch: "You rang?"

[repeated line] [siren]
Morticia: "Mail's in."

Wednesday: "Uncle Fester, do you believe in Santa Claus?"
Uncle Fester: "Well, of course. You kids are talking like children."

Wednesday: "Dear Santa, we just wanted you to know that even though Mr. Thompson says that there was no such thing as Santa Claus, we didn't believe him. So please come or else it will make us look like dummies. Signed Wednesday and Pugsley Addams."

Wednesday: "Either that's Grandmamma or Santa Claus is a woman."
Pugsley: "Either that or Grandmama's a man."

Gomez: "The L stands for Lucifer."
Morticia: "Very appropriate for a politician."

[on why he won't go to the Butlers' Ball]
Lurch: "I'm a wallflower."

[trying to convince Lurch to attend the Butlers' Ball]
Wednesday: "It'll be fun."
Lurch: "I like being miserable."
Wednesday: "You might find a nice girl to be miserable with."

Morticia: "Look at Mr. Addams. He's always developing outside interests."
Gomez: "Right now I have the most enviable collection of coroner's reports in the neighborhood."

Gomez: "I'm quite proud of Mrs. Addams' hothouse. She's raised these plants from tiny weeds."

[to Gomez]
Morticia: "I've been yours since that first day you carved my initials in your leg."

Morticia: "Think of Romeo and Juliet."
Gomez: "They died!"
Morticia: "Oh, but what fun they had those last three days."

[The dance instructress faints at the sight of Puglsey's toad]
Gomez: "Pugsley, take your toad out of here. Things like this upset him."

Gomez: "Now, if you'll observe, my dear, croquet is a combination of TWO things: balance, timing, peripheral vision, superb coordination, and a killer's instinct!"

Gomez: "Somebody... down there... likes me!"
