The family has gathered in the parlor when the mail arrives. Among the items is a new carving knife for Gomez. Much to his disappointment, it’s dull and Morticia soon sharpens it for him. He then begins carving a likeness of Fester, trying to capture the real him. He ends up with a jack o’lantern in honor of Halloween that night. Morticia assures Gomez that the children are looking forward to going out for the holiday to trick or treat...Read the full recap
Gomez: My new carving knife.
Wednesday: Nice knife. Can I play Autopsy with it?
Gomez: Well, darling, Autopsy's a fine game. But this is for carving works of art. (tests the knife on his hair) Either I've got tough hair or this knife needs sharpening.
Fester: Hurry up, Gomez.
Gomez: You getting tired, Uncle Fester?
Fester: No, I like to pose. It's so artistic.
Gomez: Good. I want to get the inner you.
Fester: Not with that.
Gomez: That's just for carving.
Fester: That's what I'm afraid of.
Gomez: Not for carving you, for carving your likeness.
Morticia: When we're together, darling, every night is Halloween.
Gomez: "It was Halloween evening and through the abode, not a creature was stirring, not even a toad. Jack o'lanterns are hung on the gallows with care."
Morticia: "To guide sister witch as she flies through the air."
Gomez: Drawn by eight beautiful bats. "And she calls out to them."
Morticia: "Come Flitter, come Flutter, come Flapper and Flyer."
Fester: "Come Chitter, come Chatter, come Vicious Vampire!" Oh, excuse me.
Gomez: We call it Bobbing for the Crab. A real challenge.
Marty: Yeah, but that crab's alive!
Fester: And full of snap, too.
Morticia: That's the challenge.
Morticia: Isn't that absolutely amazing? Would you like to try it again?
Marty: Try it again? I'd rather wrestle a lion!
Morticia: Oh, would you? Wonderful! Kitty? Here Kitty, Kitty.
Marty: They want to play games, we'll play 'em a game. A game that'll get us the loot.
Claude: Look, money isn't everything.
Marty: It's enough. Claude and I got a game we want to play. It's called Hide and Seek.
Gomez: Hide and Seek? Sounds rather mild compared to Bobbing for Crabs.
