TV Quote of the Day (‘The Addams Family,’ As Morticia Muses About Family Pets and Home Decor)

[An insurance salesman at the house discusses how to compensate the family for a loss.]

Gomez Addams [played by John Astin]: “We don't want money. What we want is another bear.”

Morticia Frump Addams [played by Carolyn Jones]: “What else could possibly go with our decor?”

Joe Digby [played by Eddie Quillan]: “The bear may be a little hard to come by. How about a lion?”

Morticia: “We already have one.”

Digby: “Stuffed?”

Morticia [eyeing the animal as it enters the living room]: “Well, he is after he's had his dinner.”—The Addams Family, Season 2, Episode 28, “The Addams Policy,” original air date Mar. 25, 1966, teleplay by Harry Winkler and Hannibal Coons, directed by Sidney Lanfield
