Fester and Grandmama are watching a political convention on TV and Morticia comes in to complain about the noise. Thing turns down the noise and Morticia goes down to find Gomez hanging pictures in the playroom. She finds Gomez putting up political posters from past campaigns, of all the candidates that they supported: Dewey, Landon, Smith, Willkie, Stevenson, and Stephen Douglas. When Morticia wonders why Gomez doesn’t run for office, he explains that the Addams prefer the role of kingmaker. He plans to support Leonard G. Quimby in the current city council elections...Read the full recap
Morticia: What's all the noise?
Fester: The conventions, Morticia, the conventions!
Morticia: Oh, I do wish they wouldn't shout so. It keeps little Pugsley's octopus awake. Poor thing's getting rings under its tentacles. And my African Strangler, too. It just loses all desire to strangle anyone.
George Bass: Is all this yours?
Gomez: Well, we go back to the cemetery.
George Bass: We all do, sometime.
Gomez: The L stands for Lucifer.
Morticia: Very appropriate for a politician.
Gomez: Number 1, we want to get our butler Lurch on television.
Morticia: We feel he'll appeal to the women's vote.
Gomez: Camera moves in. It's a close-up of Lurch. Lurch expresses himself on the candidacy of Sam L. Hilliard.
Gomez: Animal magnetism, you can't top that.
Sam Hilliard: I'm a grafter.
Morticia: You mean all your campaign promises are phony?
Sam Hilliard: As a three-dollar bill.
Fester: I've got a lot of three-dollar bills.
Sam Hilliard: I'm going to turn this whole thing over to a lawyer.
Gomez: A lawyer?
Sam Hilliard: Yes!
Gomez: My card.
Morticia: Gomez is responsible for putting more criminals behind bars than any other man in the United States.
Sam Hilliard: You, a prosecuting attorney?
Gomez: Attorney for the defense.
