* Wednesday says in this movie that homicidal maniacs "look just like everybody else." You could argue that Tully and Abigail were homicidal maniacs [[spoiler: as they were willing to kill for their plans]] and also [[spoiler: Debbie from the second movie definitely was]] and they look just like regular people.

** The trouble lies in that even if they did mark the rungs, they would have to use a different paint every time and remember which colour it was and so on. And there were a lot of chains. They may have tried several times before giving up for the night.

* More of a Fridge Tearjerker: Fester was gone for 25 years, because Gomez fought him for Flora and Fauna's affection. Gomez is definitely not the kind of man to cheat on his wife, and is so obviously in love with Morticia he wouldn't think of it. He obviously met Morticia after Fester disappeared, and Wednesday and Pugsley were born a few years after. ''Gomez's beloved brother missed out on the three most important parts of Gomez's life because of Gomez.''

* A small one, but just think how many times Gomez must have called ''The Sally Jessy Raphael'' show for Sally for him to be able to recognise his voice from just two words. They were in that nasty little motel a lot longer than we're shown.

** In Charles Addams' cartoons, Thing ''is'' a creature, not just a hand -- in fact, he's a whole other ''human'', usually peering at the Addamses from some vantage point or another. What was unique about him here was that you never fully saw him -- he was almost completely obscured by something, or silhouetted, or what have you. Charles Addams originally wanted to make him a disembodied ''head'' for the television series.

** Seeing how the first film ended on Halloween, he might've decided to go trick-or-treating with his friends while Margaret and Itt visited the Addams. This troper hasn't seen the second movie, but it's not a stretch to believe that he was keeping his distance because the Addams creeped him out/he didn't get along with Wednesday and Pugsley.
