Quotes

Girl Scout: Is this made from real lemons?

Wednesday: Yes.

Girl Scout: I only like all-natural foods and beverages, organically grown, with no preservatives. Are you sure they're real lemons?

Pugsley: Yes.

Girl Scout: Well, I'll tell you what. I'll buy a cup if you buy a box of my delicious Girl Scout cookies. Do we have a deal?

Wednesday: Are they made from real Girl Scouts?

[Wednesday is hooking up an electric chair]

Wednesday: Pugsley, sit in the chair.

Pugsley: Why?

Wednesday: So we can play a game.

Pugsley: What game?

Wednesday: [strapping him in] It's called, "Is There a God?"

Morticia: Gomez.

Gomez: Querida?

Morticia: Last night you were unhinged. You were like some desperate, howling demon. You frightened me. Do it again!

Wednesday: I'm a homicidal maniac, they look just like everyone else.

Morticia: And our credo: "Sic gorgiamus allos subjectatos nunc." We gladly feast on those who would subdue us. Not just pretty words.

[about to bury two people]

Pugsley: Are they dead?

Wednesday: Does it matter?

Judge: [at the auction] This magnificent piece is encrusted with rubies and fifteen emerald chips. It was donated by Morticia and Gomez... Addams. Remember, this year, over half our proceeds will benefit the elderly and the mentally disabled.

[Gomez and Morticia look fondly at Grandmama]

Judge: I'll open the bidding at five thousand dollars.

Gomez: Five - , hah! Not good enough. Twenty thousand!

Margaret: [frantic] What are they *doing*?

Judge: I have twenty.

Gomez: Twenty-five!

[to Morticia]

Judge: Twenty-five.

Morticia: Thirty.

[to Gomez]

Morticia: Mon sauvage.

Gomez: [voice cracks] Thirty-five!

[to Morticia]

Gomez: Eres divina.

Morticia: Have you spoken to her parents?

Susan Firkins, Wednesday's Teacher: Well, Wednesday brought in this picture: Calpurnia Addams.

Morticia: Wednesday's great-aunt Calpurnia. She was burned as a witch in 1706. They said she danced naked in the town square and enslaved the minister.

Susan Firkins, Wednesday's Teacher: Really?

Morticia: Oh, yes. But don't worry. We've told Wednesday college first.

Gomez: [playing with his trains and furiously contemplating things] He wore that finger trap for two years. Mother had to teach him to eat with his feet. And the combination, and the password, and my cigar, and he slept so well!

Morticia: About the séance tonight, I wish you'd come. It's Gomez I'm terribly worried about. He won't eat, he can't sleep, he keeps coughing up blood.

Margaret: He coughs up blood?

[performing abridged "Hamlet" in school play; sword fighting]

Wednesday: How all occasions do inform against me and spur my dull revenge. O, from this time forth, my thoughts be bloody or nothing worth. If I must strike you dead, I will.

Pugsley: [slashes Wednesday's left wrist; blood sprays out] A hit! A very palpable hit!

[Wednesday cuts of Pugsley's arm, Pugsley slashes her throat; there is lots of blood spraying everywhere, getting the front rows]

Wednesday: O, Proud Death. What feast is toward in thine eternal cell?

[drops both swords and falls to her knees]

Wednesday: Sweet Oblivion, open your arms!

[choking and gasping for breath, collapses, and dies]

Wednesday: [the audience sits aghast in stunned silence, covered with blood while the Addams give a standing ovation]

Uncle Fester: [from a window] Up here!

Gomez: [shouting up to him] Fester, you take the ravine, and the unmarked, abandoned well!

Uncle Fester: Somebody should stay behind in case she comes back.

Gomez: Good man. Good thinking!

Grandmama: Then who'll take the swamp?

Gomez: [Thing taps Gomez's shoe] That's the spirit, Thing. Lend a hand. Let's go!
