(Enid's mother is trying to make her to go to a werewolf conversion camp...)
Enid Sinclair: I'm not going. Not this summer. Not ever. If I'm meant to wolf out, then I'm going to do it on my own timeline and not yours. I hope that one day, you'll finally accept me for who I am.
Enid's father: I'm proud of you, kiddo. You do you.
Morticia Addams: Our psychic ability resides on the spectrum of who we are. Given my disposition, my visions tend to be positive. That makes me a Dove.
Wednesday Addams: And for someone like me? Who sees the world through a darker lens?
Morticia Addams: You're a Raven. Your visions are more potent, more powerful. But without the proper training, they can lead to madness.
(Wednesday is digging up a grave, Morticia is watching her...)
Morticia Addams: This reminds me of when you got your first grave-digging kit. You were so happy, you nearly smiled.
Wednesday Addams: Are you sure you don't want to join?
Morticia Addams: Uh... mm... No, that's okay, darling. I don't want to spoil your fun.
Wednesday Addams: I'll never live up to your legacy here, so why try? I win the Poe Cup, you claimed it four times. I join the fencing team, you captained it. Why would you send me somewhere I could only ever exist in your shadow?
Morticia Addams: It's not a competition, Wednesday.
Wednesday Addams: Everything is a competition, Mother.
Wednesday Addams: How many fathers hand their daughter a fencing blade when she's five?
Gomez Addams: Your saber strokes were an essay in perfection.
Wednesday Addams: Or teach her how to swim with sharks?
Gomez Addams: They found you as cold-blooded as I do.
Wednesday Addams: The right way to flay a rattlesnake?
Gomez Addams: They really do taste like chicken when prepared properly.
Wednesday Addams: The point is, you taught me how to be strong and independent. How to navigate myself in a world full of treachery and prejudice. You are the reason I understand how imperative it is that I never lose sight of myself. So as far as fatherhood goes, I would say you've been more than adequate.
Gomez Addams: Gracias, Wednesday.
Wednesday Addams (observing her father): If I'm being objective, his confession sounds entirely plausible, delivered with the perfect degree of sincerity. Perhaps my father is exactly what he says. But then there's the matter of his tells. The way he smooths his mustache. The way he delivers a comforting wink. I've been playing Russian roulette with him since I was 12. I know them well.
