(exclaims) i'm sorry to spoil your fun, but something's wrong with pugsley. he hasn't spoken a word since he came home from school. maybe he can't think of anything to say. he's just lying there on his bed of nails, staring up at the ceiling. is all tuckered out. but he hasn't eaten anything. pugsley, not eaten? no! the poor dear looks miserable. well, he never was too attractive. pugsley, darling, tell your mother what's wrong.
10:04 am
oh, dear. what do we do now? we've run out of relatives. (sighs) i'm in love. pugsley in love. oh, my baby's growing up. (chuckles) don't worry, my dear. little casanova is a chip off the old block. i'll never forget my first crush. ght. but it didn't work out. first time i kissed her, we locked braces. took the dentist two hours to pry us apart. good shot, querida. it's depressing to see pugsley so sad. ruining my game. see what i mean?
10:05 am
sad. gomez, please, have you forgotten completely about poor little pugsley? we must do something to cheer that boy up. how about a new toy? splendid idea, my dear. i'll take care of it. you do that, darling. you're so sensible and practical. show me the boy who wouldn't like this. it's beautiful, darling. what is it? what is it? look. (loud whirring) marvelous! not only...constructive, but...body-building. what? not only...
10:06 am
darling, i might have known you'd get a practical gift like this. may i try? (stammering) oh! this is marvelous. pugsley will have a wonderful time. time? 7:45. what's going on here? the new toy for pugsley. what? pugsley's new toy. will you shut that thing off? new toy for pugsley. oh, that's ridiculous. why? why? why? he's got one already. oh. well, in that case, i'll have a nice talk with the boy.
10:07 am
hey, this thing is contagious. i'll return this thing. no, i'll take it. boy, this thing really works! what's the matter, darling, can't you sleep? i know, how about if i read you a nice ghost story? i don't feel like a bedtime story tonight. oh? all right, darling, try to get some rest. good night.
10:08 am
pugsley, what on earth are you doing? i'm writing a letter. a letter? scented? licorice, my favorite. "and the way you squint your little beady eyes is real keen." pugsley darling, that's no way to write a love letter. why? what should i say? oh, i do wish i had some of the letters your father wrote me when we were courting. why, thank you, thing. that's very thoughtful. now, your father wrote some very fiery letters. here's one. that was a little too fiery. let's see. no, i don't think so.
10:09 am
now, kiss mother and run to bed. it's very late. good night, darling. oh, boy! dear teacher... "dear teacher, this is..."
10:10 am
wrote this letter? i've always considered the addams boy a little strange, but this letter... i decided it was a matter for the principal. what's he doing in the fourth grade? there's no signature? how do you know the addams boy wrote it? i saw him sneak it on my desk. well, you had better see romeo's folks about this immediately. i was hoping you'd come with me, mr. jennings. you're so diplomatic, assured, poised, masculine. true, true. and i am so bumbling, helpless, ineffective... true, true. feminine. come, miss dunbar. you'll have to handle this yourself. and please, miss dunbar, try not to make a fool of yourself.
10:11 am
that kid should be writing peyton place. ole! ole! ole! (shouting) ole! wonderful sport, lurch. it has its ups and downs. just like life and love. that reminds me, how is pugsley? normal. (laughs) already forgotten his teacher. (chuckles) that's my pugsley. love them and leave them. yes, mr. addams.
10:12 am
bring me a ladder, lurch. (foghorn sounding) better answer the doorbell first. yes, mr. addams. pugsley's teacher. ahoy, miss dunbar! there you are. yes. you know me? of course. don't you remember that enchanted evening never mind the ladder, lurch. alley-oop. how do you do? lurch, you can take the trampoline to your room. yes, mr. addams. tea, coffee, champagne? please, this is not a social visit. i have a... well, there's a letter i must read to you. well, sit right down. make yourself comfortable.
10:13 am
really? my favorite reading. very embarrassing. well, then read the parts that aren't. there was one sentence. "when i first saw you from afar, "my heart flamed with a fierce passion, "and when you spoke french, "ooh-la-la! ah, your radiant beauty, "your captivating allure..." "...your captivating allure, "drew me to you like honey to a suckle." honey to a suckle? then you wrote this? i certainly did. oh, mr. addams! i don't know what to say. i've never had an attractive man like you fall in love with me before. what? in fact, i've never had any man fall in love with me before. that's why i...
10:14 am
maybe we should stop before it's too late. yes, we must end it. it's madness. (exclaiming) let it be madness! what does it matter as long as we have each other? (miss dunbar exclaiming) mr... we have a guest, my dear. i'll have lurch set an extra place for dinner. i think i'd better explain this to my wife. i think you better. john, we're giving you a raise. that's fantastic! but i'm gonna pass. are you ok? honey, you got another present.

that boa constrictor i got you for your last birthday. i can sympathize with her. i know how irresistible you are. i guess i'll have to tell her she's making a mistake. darling, you can't do that. i can't? well, of course not. it would crush her, darling. two rejections in one day. two? first pugsley, and then you. cara, you're such an understanding woman. it would be cruel to hurt her. but if i lead her on, she'll have to know the truth eventually. "'tis better to have loved and lost "than never to have loved at all." lincoln? jefferson. i'll even play the jealous wife, give it a touch of realism. morticia, you're all woman. yes, i know. for you, i'll do it.
10:18 am
even look at another woman. darling, you're doing it for me. for you. oh, darling, say it with flowers. and, gomez, now, i know how you get carried away, so when i say "stop," stop. cara. gomez: for you, morticia. miss dunbar, my treasure. mr. addams, i've been thinking about us. i'm afraid we're making a mistake. a mistake?
10:19 am

(miss dunbar exclaiming) gomez: let's fly away together, to the black forest. e's been there. a black forest summer, winter, autumn, spring... fester, can't you see i'm busy? gomez, how could you? it's easy. watch. i don't know about you, but i come from a long line of stool pigeons.
10:20 am
morticia, i don't know how to tell you this, but your husband's a fake. my husband, gomez? you got another? he's playing footsies with another woman. and when i say footsies, i don't mean footsies. dear noble gomez. noble? he's just pretending, uncle fester. pretending? then why is he drooling so much? he has to be convincing. (stutters) he sure convinced me. having that woman laying down in his arms like that, with her hair straggling down all over her shoulders and her eyes afire and her cheeks aflame... you saw all that? yeah, and i only caught a glance. i do believe dear gomez has built up that woman's ego sufficiently. uncle fester, you better go tell him. don't worry, i know what to tell him.
10:21 am
we don't want to offend miss dunbar. just tell gomez i said, "don't. stop." "don't. stop." he'll understand. you know me. old dependable. i just adore finger-painting. but, mr. addams, your wife. what wife? nobody must be allowed to intrude on our ecstasy. i can't look. gomez, i've always loved you as a nephew. why not? i'm your uncle. but you're not yourself, gomez.
10:22 am
hard and cold. but if you won't listen to me, perhaps you will listen to morticia. i should have put out the "don't disturb" sign. there you are. sorry. the black forest is indescribable. let me tell you about it. (whispering) morticia says, "don't stop." don't stop? thanks. what was i saying before we were interrupted? oh, yes. i was saying that nobody must be allowed to interrupt. morticia! morticia, we've lost him. he didn't stop? didn't even break stride. oh, dear.
10:23 am
mr. addams... hush, my darling. ivy-covered cottage beside a lovely swamp. but, mr. addams... hush, my darling. we can find our own little secluded hideaway, far from everyone, where the magic stillness of the night is broken only by the merry buzzing of the tsetse fly. but, mr. addams... yes, my darling. what is it? you're breaking my back. gomez. excuse me. ink? i think it's dreadful. well, i was doing a lot better until her back gave out. i'll show you what i mean. gomez, what's gotten into you? you're acting disgracefully. i am? yes, you are. it's as though you don't care at all. it's as bad as that? it most certainly is! if you'd only make some effort... just watch me. i'll show you what the man you married is really like.
10:24 am
her, our magical moments, gone, (glass shattering) broken, smashed to bits. pardon me. good god, morticia, what a performance! worthy of a sarah bernhardt, a greta garbo, a mamie van doren. oh, gomez, why? why? why? why not? why not? why not? (whispering) how was that? my heart belongs to what's-her-name! please, gomez, please, dear, think of all of our happy moments together. a sham! where were we? mr. addams... hush, my darling. can't you see it's all over between us? gomez, i'm leaving this house and taking the children with me. go ahead and leave! mr. addams... hush, my darling. take the children. take the neighbors' children. take uncle fester. take mama. she's your mama. very well, we'll share custody.
10:25 am
c'est terrible. mr. addams. there you are. adieu, mon bubele. yes, of course. (foghorn sounding) it will be you and me. mr. jennings. miss dunbar. sir, if you're a jealous husband or boyfriend,
10:26 am
an april fool joke in october? i like to get an early start. my glasses. where are my glasses? where did you drop them, miss dunbar? i didn't drop them, they just flew off. flew... why, isobel, you have beautiful eyes. sir, you are leading this poor, lovesick girl on, and i just want to say, good luck. querida, i was just carrying out your instructions. but i pleaded with you to stop. i thought you were acting. believe me, cara mia, when you spoke to me in french, it was all i could do to restrain myself. what was it you said? c'est terrible. speak some more french. bon appetit. bon matin! ce soir!
10:27 am
it must have been torture for you, making love to that strange woman all the time, while you were longing for me, and i made you do it. oh, can you ever forgive me, darling, can you? yes, if you get me a pulmotor. of course, dear, for christmas. but i...
10:28 am
oh, dear. i ruined your newspaper. think nothing of it. it's last week's. that's very sensible, dear. i understand they're much cheaper. much. (alarm sounding) oh, the mail is in. (box creaking) thank you, thing. oh, it's from dear miss dunbar. (chuckles) did she get over me? completely. she did? pugsley, where are you going? to mail a letter. oh, to who? my new teacher.
