Mockingbird Lane (2012) (TV)
Real Estate Agent: [Car pulls up in front of a bright, pleasant, sunny house] May I ask why the sudden move?
Marilyn Munster: No.
Real Estate Agent: [Agent and Marilyn get out of car] All right. Well, this, it's an emotional property, ideal for any multi-generational family.
Marilyn Munster: We're not just any family.
Real Estate Agent: Well, the sun shines more on this house than any other house in the neighborhood.
Marilyn Munster: Not a feature we're looking for.
[Turns and looks across the street at a dark, shadowed, rambling mansion]
Marilyn Munster: What about that one?
Real Estate Agent: It's a very emotional property for entirely different reasons. The former owner was a notorious serial killer who poisoned hoboes.
Marilyn Munster: I'll take it.
Real Estate Agent: It's not for sale. They're tearing it down.
Marilyn Munster: But they haven't yet.
Real Estate Agent: That's a horrible place. Horrible things happened there. They found dozens of graves in the backyard.
Marilyn Munster: Mm-hmmm.
Real Estate Agent: Well, maybe you could buy the lot once the grounds have been cleansed.
Marilyn Munster: My aunt and uncle prefer pre-cleansed.
Real Estate Agent: Miss, there may be dead homeless people in the walls.
Marilyn Munster: Then they found a home after all.
[Smiles at house, then look over shoulder at agent]

Marilyn Munster: Cookies?

Marilyn Munster: I'm touched that you'd miss me.
Grandpa: Marilyn, I adore you. I was the one that talked your mother out of eating you.

Grandpa: There is an important intermediate step that we are missing here. The deer eats the grass and is itself eaten, and then the thing that ate it dies and fertilizes the ground so more grass can grow, so more deer can eat, and then... be eaten.
Marilyn Munster: But some deer can live long lives.
Grandpa: Nope.
Marilyn Munster: Also, as an intermediary step, sometimes deer want to be eaten. They're depressed and lonely, so that lion's doing the deer a favor.
Eddie Munster: That deer didn't look depressed.
Marilyn Munster: No, I know. I thought I saw it smile.
Eddie Munster: Does anything eat the lion?
Marilyn Munster: Grandpa.
Grandpa: It's nature.

Grandpa: Edward, stop playing with your food.
Eddie Munster: I will if you will.
Grandpa: That is a gross cliche, and it is beneath you.
Eddie Munster: [to Steve] My grandpa's gonna eat you.
Marilyn Munster: Is that happening tonight? Hmm?

Marilyn Munster: What will the neighbors think?
Grandpa: The neighbors should be more concerned with what I'm thinking.

The First Policeman: That's what we figured. She's just trying to build up an insanity plea to make it easier for herself.

Grandpa: The policemen say that... that Lydia was trying to kill me?
Marilyn Munster: I'm sorry, Grandpa, but she was the notorious Black Widow
Herman Munster: You see? I told ya, you can't be too careful. When you think of some of the people running around loose in the world today... it's frightening!

Marilyn Munster: Well, we'll just make a promise not to tell either of them.
Grandpa: Okay, good, and we'll swear it in blood
[raises her arm to take a bite]
Marilyn Munster: Oh, uh uh, we'll just shake hands.

Marilyn Munster: Is the hamper all packed, Aunt Lily?
