  • The Addams family

  • (PLAYING HARPSICHORD)

  • (ALARM SOUNDING)

  • The mail's in.

  • Never mind, Lurch, I'll get it.

  • My new carving knife.

  • Nice knife. Can I play autopsy with it?

  • Well, darling, autopsy's a fine game.

  • But this is for carving works of art.

  • (METALLIC CLINKING)

  • Well, either I've got tough hair or this knife needs sharpening.

  • There, darling, I think it's sharp enough now.

  • Lovely, Morticia. Querida mia.

  • Hurry up, Gomez.

  • Are you getting tired, Uncle Fester?

  • No, I like to pose. It's so artistic.

  • Good. I want to get the inner you.

  • Not with that.

  • Well, that's just for carving.

  • That's what I'm afraid of.

  • (LAUGHS) Not for carving you, for carving your likeness.

  • Oh.

  • Now, let's see a little more of the Addams character.

  • Now we're getting somewhere.

  • Mmm-hmm.

  • Uh-huh.

  • Yes.

  • Now, a little more to the right.

  • (CREAKING)

  • More.

  • (CREAKING)

  • Keep going.

  • Excellent.

  • Are you sure you're getting enough of my personality?

  • Try it in reverse.

  • (CREAKING)

  • Back up a little.

  • Keep going.

  • Perfect.

  • Yes, but are you sure you're getting the real me?

  • You're right. Let's have the real, the true, the unadorned you.

  • Beautiful.

  • And now for immortality.

  • Don't move, don't look, don't even breathe.

  • Don't worry, I'll...

  • Don't!

  • That's it. Hold it.

  • By Jove, I think I've done it.

  • Why, Gomez, you're the Michelangelo of Halloween pumpkins.

  • How do you like it so far?

  • Darling, you have the soul of an artist and the touch of a surgeon.

  • Halloween always inspires me.

  • Are you looking forward to the guests

  • who might come in tonight for trick-or-treat?

  • Oh, yes.

  • And the children are so excited about going out.

  • Good.

  • I'd better see to the punch and cookies.

  • Always the perfect hostess.

  • GOMEZ: Give us the smile.

  • Ah, Lurch, I see you have the bowl ready.

  • Yes, Mrs. Addams.

  • I think I'll start the punch and let it mellow for a while.

  • You may fix the sandwiches, Lurch.

  • Very good, Mrs. Addams.

  • Hmm, divine.

  • Thank you, Thing.

  • Gomez!

  • Morticia!

  • Yes?

  • Wednesday and Pugsley are all dressed up for trick-or-treat.

  • Well, bring them down, bring them down.

  • (POLICE SIREN WAILING)

  • Hear the siren?

  • That's a police siren.

  • Oh, great, the tank's dry as a bone.

  • Listen, next time we pull a stickup will you get gas?

  • All right, all right, I forgot.

  • Yeah, and you dropped your gun in the getaway.

  • Boy, this sure ain't your night.

  • Come on, let's get out of here before the cops spot us.

  • And I'll take the loot.

  • I don't want you to forget it.

  • I know, you're always mad, Marty.

  • (SIREN WAILING)

  • Hey, the whole area's heating up.

  • We've gotta take cover someplace.

  • (WHISPERS) In there, quiet, behind that tree.

  • Okay.

  • Hey, hey.

  • I could've sworn that gate was closed.

  • Man, you're beginning to give me the creeps.

  • Come on.

  • What's the idea?

  • Why'd you slam it so hard?

  • I was gonna ask you the same thing.

  • How do we look?

  • Mama, these are far too...

  • I agree, Gomez, they're much too startling.

  • They'll scare the wits out of people.

  • Yes. When you knock on neighbors' doors, you'd better say,

  • "Do not be alarmed. We are only little children."

  • PUGSLEY: Can we go now?

  • As soon as your father finishes the jack-o'-lantern.

  • Ah.

  • How do you like it?

  • Thinks it looks like Uncle Fester?

  • Better!

  • Good eye. A true Addams.

  • This joint gives me the willies.

  • Will you get off it? It's probably the house of some sweet little old lady.

  • Now, children, are we ready for trick-or-treat?

  • We're ready, Father.

  • Yeah, let's go.

  • Fine. Now, these are to hold all the goodies you'll get.

  • I've got mine.

  • All right, Mama, we'll escort our little goblins

  • on their Halloween rounds.

  • (DOOR OPENING)

  • There's somebody coming, Marty.

  • (WHISPERS) Yeah, I hear.

  • Will you put the mask away?

  • I don't want them to recognize us.

  • Look, Father, we have visitors.

  • WEDNESDAY: That man has a mask.

  • They must be trick-or-treating.

  • Yes, yes, of course.

  • Don't come any closer.

  • Mama, you must be right.

  • Better make your speech, children.

  • Do not be alarmed.

  • Do not be alarmed.

  • We are only little children.

  • We are only little children.

  • We're on our way to play trick-or-treat, too.

  • Yeah, we're out for Halloween, too.

  • (THUNDER RUMBLING)

  • A perfect night for Halloween.

  • You must come in and celebrate with us.

  • Uh, sorry, we got other plans.

  • (POLICE SIREN WAILING)

  • Um, on second thought, we'll, we'll take you up on that offer.

  • Splendid.

  • Mama, I'll leave the children in your capable hands.

  • Don't keep them out too late.

  • Just long enough to fill up our bags.

  • Goodbye, Father.

  • Morticia, our first guests have arrived.

  • This is my wife. Morticia, this is...

  • How ridiculous!

  • I forgot to ask your names.

  • Look, Mac, if you're thinking you're going to be...

  • I'm Marty and he's Claude.

  • Welcome to our home.

  • Hey, that's quite an outfit you got on, lady.

  • Thank you. I always wear this one for Halloween.

  • Looks real good for Halloween.

  • We always try to get our home in the Halloween mood, too.

  • Yeah, you sure do.

  • I heard voices, Gomez.

  • Who is it? Do we have guests?

  • Indeed we have, Uncle Fester.

  • This is Marty and Claude.

  • Pleased to meet you.

  • You...You folks sure don't hold back on Halloween.

  • It's our favorite holiday.

  • And this is our butler, Lurch.

  • Pal, you top 'em all.

  • Oh, yes, Lurch is tops.

  • Most efficient, too.

  • I forgot to light the pumpkin.

  • It looks just like me. Excuse me.

  • Gentlemen, come over here and I'll give you a treat.

  • Open your bag.

  • Oh, don't start getting cute, mister.

  • Now, now, there's nothing to be ashamed of.

  • I think it's rather heartwarming

  • that adults get in the Halloween spirit.

  • Yeah, but just the same, I ain't...
