There are two kinds of good movies: those that are re-watchable, and those that are not. Million Dollar Baby is an incredible, heart-wrenching piece of art, but I will tear out my hair before I sit down to watch the whole thing again. One movie that is re-watchable? The Addams Family. There isn’t a single second of that movie that isn’t either funny or poignant. You could choose almost any line of dialogue and flesh it out as a quote. We’ve narrowed it down to the best possible eight.
“Last night you were unhinged. You were like some desperate, howling demon. You frightened me. Do it again!” – Morticia Addams
Our first look at the Addams family comes from this introduction to Gomez and Morticia Addams. This early scene establishes their loving, oftentimes exaggerated relationship. It’s played for laughs, yes, but the sentiment serves two purposes: it is a stark contrast against the dark weirdness of the rest of their lives, and it is also very sweet.
