Uncle Fester

  • You're probably thinking: what could a fat bald person of no specific sexuality know about love? But I, too, am in love. Fester loves...
  • So will love triumph, or will everyone go home vaguely depressed?
  • fester loves... THE MOON!

  • Ok so i'm a goat... leaping from crag to crag like we do. mah mah
  • Ok so we loose the goat. No goat! I hate goats.

Alice/ Mal

  • Mal: Man they really got to you... that doesn't even rhyme!



Morticia: What are you wearing?
Wednesday: a dress
Morticia: A yellow dress.
Gomez: Paloma – what happened? You look like a crime scene!

Gomez: It's called Full Disclosure!
Morticia: Everybody sips from the sacred family chalice and confesses something they never told anyone.
Gomez: Loosely based on the inquisition.

Wednesday: Now here’s the thing. We’re gonna act real normal.
The Addams Family: Gasp!
Grandma: Define “normal.”

Lucas: Wait, I know this tree! it's where I first saw her! I was lost in the park when a pigeon dropped to my feet with an arrow in it, I looked up, and there she was! Wednesday with a crossbow, and she looked like Diana the Huntress.

Mal: Who?
Lucas: A Roman Goddess, Dad. She ruled the woodlands and was worshipped by slaves.

Alice: Isn't that interesting!
Mal: Well, that's great input that will get you through life.

Grandma: One sip of this will turn Mary Poppins into Madea.
Pugsley: I don't understand your references!
Grandma: Then stop the damn texting and pick up a book once in a while!

Morticia: Wednesday is growing up. Gomez: She'll be Thursday before you know it!

Mal: 20 thousand square feet in the middle of central park how'd they swing that I wonder? Alice: I don't know honey but that man looks dead.

Lucas: But you see the lover always comes back... Ulysses. Tristan. Romeo. Wednesday: Look I'm home schooled... what's your point?

Gomez: You gave a child agrimonium!? Mama: I did NOT! I gave him love and understanding... which is a lot more than I get around here! I know what you've been saying missy. Sure I smoke weed in the attic! It's medicinal! I have... gingivitis. And I'm the matriarch of this family! I'm somebody's mother! And let me clear that one up right now! You wanna know who's mother I am?! It's... ohhh I've got to stop smoking weed in the attic!


          When I'm depressed
          Or feeling blessed
          A poem will get it off my chest
         They come to me
         They take no time
         They just pop out
         and always rhyme

Morticia: Maybe you should see someone about that! Alice: And they're always about the one thing everyone needs and so few have... Morticia: Health care? Alice: Why, love of course!
