Creator/MelBrooks and GeneWilder's [[AffectionateParody loving parody]] of the classic UniversalHorror films of the [[TheThirties 1930s]]. Appearing in 1974, gorgeously shot in [[DeliberatelyMonochrome black and white]] using [[PropRecycling laboratory props]] from the original ''[[Film/{{Frankenstein 1931}} Frankenstein]]'' and starring a cast of brilliant comedic actors all at the very height of their talents, it is generally regarded as one of the funniest and most quotable movies ever made. It was adapted into a stage musical in 2007.

It is reported that the cast and crew had so much fun making the movie that they ''added in extra scenes'' just to keep it going.

In 2003, this movie was added to the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress, for its cultural, historical, and aesthetic significance. Two other works by Mel Brooks share this honor, ''Film/TheProducers'' and ''Film/BlazingSaddles''.

And, since it keeps coming up, "Blücher" ([[RunningGag *Whinny*]]) is ''[[CriticalResearchFailure not]]'' the [[http://www.snopes.com/movies/films/blucher.asp German word for "glue"]]; it's [[UrbanLegend just a common misconception]].

The MarketBasedTitle for the film in Italy, ''Frankenstein Junior'', is NOTToBeConfusedWith the ''actual'' FrankensteinJr.

----
!!That's TROPE-EN-STEEN!:

* ActingForTwo: TheMusical originally had Fred Applegate play both Inspector Kemp and Harold, the blind Hermit.
* ActingUnnatural: Igor begins to shamelessly flirt with Frankenstein's fiancee Elizabeth. Then Frankenstein walks up.
--> '''Igor''' (whispers to Elizabeth): Say nothing. Act casual. ''(leans against wagon and aimlessly looks around)''
* AffectionateParody: As noted, 1930s horror movies. Heavy emphasis on "affectionate," too.
* AlliterativeName
* AndCallHimGeorge: The Monster, a little girl and a seesaw.
* AnywhereButTheirLips: It's only in their first scene together that Elizabeth says "Not on the lips," to Freddy, and the reason is that she doesn't want her makeup smudged.
** Subverted in that she doesn't seem to want to be touched ''anywhere'', lest she mess up her hair, her nails, her dress, etc. In the end she and Frederick say goodbye by shaking elbows. She even flinches when he blows her a kiss.
*** And right after all that... the train rolls past and she's enveloped in a billowing cloud of black smoke.
* ArtificialLimbs: Inspector Kemp's wooden arm.
* AsideGlance: By Igor several times, and a couple of times by the Monster.
* BerserkButton: Mentioning Frederick's relation to a famous cuckoo is not a good idea.
** He's also not tolerant of mistakes, like putting in Abby Normal's brain.
--> '''Frankenstein''': Are you saying that I put an abnormal brain into a seven-and-half-foot-long.. fifty-four-inch-wide.. '''''GORILLA?!?''''' (proceeds to throttle Igor)
* BigElectricSwitch: Multiple examples on the laboratory equipment.
--> But I'm not going to be the first.
* BiggerIsBetterInBed / TheImmodestOrgasm: Upon finding the Monster's enormous ''Schwanzstüke'', there's "Ah, sweet mystery of life, at last I've found yooou!"
* BilingualBonus: The two couples that accompany Frederick in the trains have exactly the same conversation, the first in English, the second in German.
* BlackComedyRape: Elizabeth gets raped by the Monster. Then it turns out [[NotIfTheyEnjoyedItRationalization she enjoys]] his enormous ''Schwanzstüke'' and happily has more sex with him.
-->"All right-- seven always has been my lucky number!"
** This is expanded and made LighterAndSofter in TheMusical with the song [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=28Cg7ptCQX8 "Deep Love".]] The act has Elizabeth singing, fireworks going off and both her and the Monster smoking. Elizabeth comes out looking like the Film/BrideOfFrankenstein.
* BlindAndTheBeast: The films parodies the blind-man scene in ''Film/BrideOfFrankenstein''. Look carefully at this blind man, though: that's a young GeneHackman. Gene plays it utterly straight. Even with the comedy gags, this one is still a touching scene.
** TheMusical also gives him a song, "Please Send Me Someone." "Finale Ultimo" has him reprise this, and Frau Blücher (*WHINNY!*) excuses herself--[[IncrediblyLamePun "I've got a blind date."]]
* BookcasePassage: '''Put ze candle beck!'''
* BookSafe: Subverted when Frederick tries to open a secret door by moving a likely-looking book. He then inadvertently learns it's actually triggered by a candle-holder.
** "Put ze candle back!"
* BreakingTheFourthWall: Igor in general. But especially in the "Quiet dignity and grace" scene.
* BullyingADragon: The prison guard when he discovers that the Monster is afraid of fire. Here's a piece of advice: If you're going to taunt a 7-foot tall, super-strong monster with anger issues, don't do so within arm's reach.
* ChewingTheScenery: Completely deliberate.
* CobwebJungle: In the passage leading to Dr. Frankenstein's laboratory and the laboratory itself.
* {{Corpsing}}: Was understandably a problem throughout the shoot. In several scenes you can see Gene Wilder is just barely holding it together.
** It's one of the rare films where the ''crew'' had issues with corpsing--the "baggage" scene made them laugh so hard that it ruined takes.
* CreatorCameo: Brooks is the model for one of the castle's gargoyles, and ad-libbed the ThatPoorCat screech when Frederick accidentally throws a dart out the window, as well doing as the howl of the "werewolf".
* CreepyChangingPainting: A scowling portrait of Victor Frankenstein is highly visible in Fredrick's room. When Frederick finds his grandfather's instructions and decides to continue his work, a lightning-illuminated close-up shows the portrait looking very pleased.
* CreepyHousekeeper: Frau Blücher ([[RunningGag *WHINNY!*]]) is the quintessential creepy housekeeper: as you may notice, every time her name is mentioned, horses rear in fear. Also, in regards to Victor Frankenstein: "He... vas... my... BOYFRIEND!"
** [[IAmSong "He Vas" Song"]]: Which leads to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g37mtvbQCoI her singing]] about Victor in the Musical, complete with EvilLaugh and vamping by Andrea Martin for "He Vas My Boyfriend." Doubles as a VillainSong as she hints he wasn't too nice a guy other than the sex.
* CueTheRain: You know how people tell you to keep going until you hit RockBottom? Well, this film demonstrates why.
* CuteButCacophonic: "PUH'IN ON DA REEEEEEEETZ!"
* DarkReprise: TheMusical has "Life, Life" where Frederick is trying to coax Fate to let the Monster he's assembled live, and "Frederick's Soliloquy" has the same tune, but the village is about to hang him, and here he's accepted who he finally is without regrets. [[spoiler: The newly-intelligent Monster realizes the hanged Frederick is unconscious, not dead, and is able to revive him.]]
* DickDastardlyStopsToCheat: "Nice grouping."
* DeadMansChest: "You're chilled to the bone!"
** And in a more VisualPun, the film opens with a (very) dead skeleton clutching a chest.
* DefrostingIceQueen: Elizabeth, although it's more a case of getting hit with a blowtorch.
* DeliberatelyMonochrome: To better parody the original Frankenstein movies. (This was so important to the filmmakers that they took the project to 20th Century Fox after originally conscripted studio Columbia balked at the prospect of it being in black-and-white.)
** "Now available in black and white! No offense."
* DespairEventHorizon: Frederick accepts his initial failure with [[BlatantLies quiet dignity and grace.]]
* DontExplainTheJoke: Averted -- during the WalkThisWay scene, Igor shows Frederick what he means. It doesn't ruin the joke at all, though. Supposedly, this gag was the inspiration for the Music/{{Aerosmith}} song of the same name.
** In point of fact, it worked so well, it's something of a RunningGag for Mel Brooks. It shows up in most (if not all) of his films. The walk is different, but the joke is ''always'' the same.
* EyepatchOfPower: Kemp has one. The funny thing is how he must wear ''[[CrazyAwesome a monocle]]'' over it.
* {{Expy}}: Inspector Kemp is one for Inspector Krogh from the ''Film/SonOfFrankenstein''.
* ForeignCussWord: "He would have an enormous ''Schwanzstücke''!"
** "Wuff!"
* FrankensteinsMonster: This one has his head attached with zippers instead of bolts.
* GagBoobs: "What knockers!"
** Subverted. Dr. Frankenstein is talking about [[InnocentInnuendo the actual knockers. On the doors.]]
* GagPenis: The Monster's enormous ''Schwanzstüke'', mentioned [[RuleOfThree three times]].
* GenreSavvy: Dr. Frankenstein is this, e.g. when looking for the device to enable the BookcasePassage.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: The conversation aboard the train is almost certainly about the old couple's son [[spoiler: masturbating]].
** So many {{Double Entendre}}s and sex references, but all subtly enough to get away with a PG rating (although likely would have been PG-13 had that been established at the time).
** In the UK it originally received a AA rating(14 and over without adult accompaniment). On its first release on video it received a 15 and then received a massive downgrade to PG in 2000.
* GoshDangItToHeck: Frederick's great-grandfather's work was DOO-DOO!
** Averted other times, though. [[ClusterFBomb Quite powerfully.]]
* GraveClouds: Remember: Keep going until you hit RockBottom...
* GraveRobbing: Dittos for how they got the corpse.
* GreatBigBookOfEverything: ''[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin How I Did It]]'', by Victor Frankenstein
* GroinAttack: "Why, you mother-grabbing BASTARD!"
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: Inga, espcially in TheMusical. "Listen To Your Heart" helps her calm down Frederick; this [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=79pLrjSQsPg performance]] by Sutton Foster as Inga also allows for this.
* HairTriggerSoundEffect: (*{{beat}}*) BLUCHER! *whinny* ''*grins*''
* HeirClubForMen: On his will, Baron Frankenstein described Frederick as his only ''male'' heir and never considered leaving anything to his granddaughter.
* HighClassGlass: Kemp's monocle is memorably paired with an ''eyepatch''. That he wears over the same eye.
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: The Monster and Elizabeth.
* HollywoodTorches: Outside Castle Frankenstein. Done deliberately.
* HypocriticalHumor: After what seems to be the failed attempt at resurrecting the dead, Frederick states that it is better to accept both loss and success with "quiet dignity and grace," then promptly loses his shit and takes out his frustration on the monster, choking and hitting the corpse all while screaming incoherently; all of this is lampshaded by Igor who just repeats Frederick's "quiet dignity and grace" line.
** [[BlatantLies "I will NOT be angry."]]
* IdenticalGrandson: The Frankensteins.
* IDidntMeanToTurnYouOn: "Iff I could just giff you a little ''[[StealthPun peace!]]''" ''(Frankenstein moans.)''
* TheIgor: Heavily, ''heavily'' parodied by Marty Feldman. So much that he's the [[TropeNamers Trope Namer]].
** As well as Christopher Fitzgerald originally in TheMusical. He takes it UpToEleven when Igor leads the village in "Transylvania Mania" to distract them from the Monster's moaning--and it gets worked into the number, with Frederick and Inga joining in.
* InstantThunder: Could be worse. Could be raining.
* InsufferableGenius: Frederick has his moments.
* InTheBlood: "Des-ti-ny! Des-ti-ny! No es-caping that for me!"
** Also something of a subversion; Frederick is doing just fine escaping the [[MadScientist family tradition]] (aside from a [[LargeHam hamtastic]] moment in his lecture on neurobiology) until his great-grandfather's will and then his "servant" Frau Blücher (*WHINNY*) railroad him into it.
** TheMusical also has "Join the Family Business" as a number where the ghosts of Victor Von Frankenstein and other ancestors iron that point home.
* [[ItIsPronouncedTroPAY It Is Pronounced Fronken-STEEN]]: An extended gag with Frederick and Igor.
-->'''Igor:''' Dr. Frankenstein…
-->'''Frankenstein:''' Fronken-steen.
-->'''Igor:''' You’re putting me on.
-->'''Frankenstein:''' No, it’s pronounced Fronkensteen.
-->'''Igor:''' Do you also say Froderick?
-->'''Frankenstein:''' No… Frederick.
-->'''Igor:''' Well, why isn’t it Froderick Fronkensteen?
-->'''Frankenstein:''' It isn’t. It’s Frederick Fronkensteen.
-->'''Igor:''' I see.
-->'''Frankenstein:''' You must be Igor ''(pronounces it as Eeee-gor)''.
-->'''Igor:''' No, it’s pronounced EYE-gor.
-->'''Frankenstein:''' But they told me it was EE-gor.
-->'''Igor:''' Well, they were wrong then, weren’t they?
* JustAStupidAccent: Deliberately, this being a Creator/MelBrooks film. The movie takes place in Transylvania (located in Romania), but the townsfolk generally have bad German or Cockney accents. Kemp's is so terrible that his own countrymen have trouble understanding him.
* LampshadeHanging: After the horses RunningGag is established, Igor stays around, listening intently, and says, "... Blücher." (*WHINNY*) Then grins with satisfaction.
* LargeHam: Gene Wilder.
** Marty Feldman could also count, as he's clearly having fun as Igor (EYE-gor).
** Kenneth Mars as Inspector Kemp.
* LetMeGetThisStraight: Frederick to I-gor upon learning about "Abby Normal"'s brain.
-->'''Frederick''': Are you saying that I put an abnormal brain into a seven-and-half-foot-long.. fifty-four-inch-wide.. '''GORILLA?!?'''
* LockedIntoStrangeness: Elizabeth's white streak and hairdo after being abducted by the Monster. Also a {{homage}} to ''Film/BrideOfFrankenstein'', naturally.
* MadScientist
* MadScientistLaboratory
* MusicSoothesTheSavageBeast: Frau Blücher ([[RunningGag *WHINNY*]]) is able to calm the Monster down by playing the violin. Later, it is used to lure him to capture.
* TheMusical: And it's ''awesome''.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone
* MythologyGag: The book "How I Did It". In the original Frankenstein novel, we never ''do'' hear any details of just how the monster was brought to life. All the stuff with the lightning and stolen brains was added in later adaptations. Some of the lines he reads from the book ''are'' taken directly from the novel, however.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Just saying "Frau Blücher" (*WHINNY*) causes horses to rear up in fright. ''Just'' the name; the woman's actual presence doesn't bother them at all.
* NeckLift: The Monster, to the police officer tormenting him.
* NonverbalMiscommunication: ''"SEDAGIVE!?!"''
* NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent: Most of the villagers in Transylvania. (Strangely, one exception is a young boy.)
* NoMatterHowMuchIBeg: "..I was ''joking''! Don't you know a ''joke'' when you hear one?! HA-HA-HA-HA!!''"
** "OPEN THIS GODDAMN DOOR OR I'LL KICK YOUR ROTTEN HEADS IN!!!"
** "MOMMY!!"
* NuclearCandle: Subtly parodied with candelabra-bearing Frau Blücher's ([[RunningGag *WHINNY*]]) comment "Stay close to the candles, the staircase can be treacherous." None of the candles are in fact lit.
* OffscreenTeleportation: During final preparations to reanimate the monster, Igor is up on the roof.
-->'''Frederick:''' Now tie off the kites and hurry down as fast as you can.
-->'''Igor:''' What's the hurry?
-->'''Frederick:''' There's a possibility of electrocution! Do you understand?
-->'''Igor:''' ''[looks down through the skylight]''
-->'''Frederick:''' I say: There's a possibility of electrocution! Do you understand?!
-->'''Igor:''' ''[now stepping in from offscreen next to Frederick]'' I understand, I understand! Why are you shouting?
-->''[Frederick looks back up at the skylight and does a double take]''
-->'''Frederick:''' Did you...Did you tie off the kites?
-->'''Igor:''' Of course.
* OnOneCondition: A deleted scene explains how Frederick inherited the estate of his very distant and disliked great-grandfather: said Baron Frankenstein had left his estate to his much closer relatives, naming each of them specifically, to be divided up evenly, unless Frederick had of his own choosing become a doctor and achieved some esteem in his field. As this had indeed happened, all the money and property went to him. The idea was that the Baron wanted to give his inheritance to someone who would have some chance of erasing the stain on his family name.
** Frederick also had to meet the terms before the day Baron Frankenstein would become one hundred years old. Said Baron Frankenstein left instructions that his will was not to be read until then.
* ParlorGames: Charades.
* ParodyAssistance: [[PropRecycling Props were recycled]] from the 1931 version of ''Film/{{Frankenstein|1931}}''. Done not to save money but as an homage to the original film. It actually cost them quite a bit to use them.
* PassedOverInheritance: Baron Frankenstein had closer relations than a distant great-grandson but they got nothing because he felt Frederick redeemed the family name by becoming a respected doctor.
* PercussiveMaintenance: Igor whacks one piece of machinery that doesn't turn off with the rest.
* PersonalitySwap: Done partially and deliberately.
* PigLatin: "Ixnay on the ottenray!"
* PrecisionFStrike:
-->'''Kemp:''' Und now, let us all go back to my place for a little spongecake, und a little vine, und - ''(his wooden arm pops off)'' - Ah, ''shit!''
* PrettyInMink: Elizabeth has a few furs, but even Inga gets to wear a silver fox cape during the ill-fated presentation.
* ProducePelting: During Frederick and the Monster's performance.
* {{Prussia}}: Inspector Kemp is possibly the defining example.
* PunctuatedForEmphasis: Numerous examples.
* PunnyName: "Abby someone... Abby Normal".
* RabbleRouser:
** At a town meeting one of the townspeople tries to stir up a lynch mob against the newest Baron Frankenstein.
-->'''Townsman''': He's a Frankenstein! And they're all alike. It's in their blood. They can't 'elp it. All those scientists, they're all alike. They say they're working for us. What they really want is to rule the world!
** Later on Inspector Kemp (an authority figure who had earlier argued against violence) changes his mind.
-->'''Kemp''': A riot is an ugly thing. Und I think that it is just about time that we had one!
* ReluctantMonster: The Monster even more than the original
* RepeatAfterMe: "Walk this way." And the line inspired Music/{{Aerosmith}}'s song.
* RepriseMedley: "Finale Ultimo" in TheMusical.
* ReversePolarity: Apparently this is the ultimate secret to raising the dead. Either that or Victor plugged his equipment in backwards at first, the scene isn't clear.
* RobbingTheDead: In the first scene, a ledger is taken from the coffin of the late Beaufort von Frankenstein.
* RockBottom: Frederick Frankenstein and Igor are digging up a grave.
-->'''Frankenstein''': What a filthy job!
-->'''Igor''': Could be worse.
-->'''Frankenstein''': How?
-->'''Igor''': Could be raining.
-->''(Thunderclap. [[ThunderEqualsDownpour Torrents of rain]].)''
* RollInTheHay: Inga invites Fronkenstein "to roll in ze hay" with her.
* RunningGag: [[SelfDemonstratingArticle BLÜCHER! *WHINNY!*]]
** Igor's hump always changing positions between shots
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: "It's Frahnk-en-steen!"
* TheScottishTrope: [[RunningGag "Blücher!" ''*WHINNY!*'']]
* ShaggySearchTechnique: "Put - the candle - back!" Part of the parody is that Dr. Frankenstein ''was'' using legitimate means to search for it before the trope kicked in
* ShamingTheMob: The Monster himself does it, with a speech mostly cribbed out of Shelley's original book.
* ShoeShineMister: When Frederick's train pulls in, he asks a shoeshine boy, "Pardon me boy, is this the Transylvania Station?" The boy replies "Ja, ja. Track 29. Oh, can I give you a shine?" This is a ShoutOut to the 1941 song "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chattanooga_Choo_Choo Chattanooga Choo Choo]]".
* ShoutOut: To [[Creator/MarxBrothers Groucho Marx]] and Music/GlennMiller, among others.
* SillyWill: The aged Baron Beaufort von Frankenstein leaves instructions that his estate shall be given to his distant great-grandson rather than shared among a cadre of mooching relatives if said great-grandson has become a respected doctor of his own accord. One of the relatives tries to pass this clause off as insanity but the executor reminded her that civilization is based on law. The scene was [[DeletedScene removed from the final film]].
* SmokingHotSex: Elizabeth and the Monster.
** TheMusical gave the song "Deep Love" where Elizabeth sings about it, and the Monster also reprises the song in "Finale Ultimo" and proposes to her in his version. [[spoiler: She accepts.]]
* SoundtrackDissonance: The somber musical score is squarely at odds with the screwball tone of the film, yet somehow works perfectly well.
** Mel intentionally kept the fact that the film was a comedy secret from the composer, resulting in serious music to a seriously funny movie.
* [[StandInPortrait Stand-In Head]]: Igor pretends to be one of the heads in the lab in order to surprise Inga and Frankenstein.
* StealthHiBye: Igor. It's never explained how he got down so easily from the top of the lab to Frederick's side and why his hump always changes positions
* {{Sting}}: "Call it a... hunch! [[{{Rimshot}} Ba-dump tsch]]!"
* StockSoundEffects: Castle Thunder, repeatedly throughout the movie.
** Also a ShoutOut, given that the stock thunder sound effect used in movies for decades was created for the original Frankenstein.
* TemptingFate: Go back until you reach RockBottom.
* ThatPoorCat: Hit with a dart.
** Bonus points for being a ThrowItIn moment Mel Brooks improvised while shooting the scene.
* TitleDrop: It's hard to catch thanks to Kemp's accent slurring the sentence, but it's there:
--> '''Inspector Kemp''': Und... ve had better ''cunfeeeerm'' de fect that yung Fronkenshtein ish indeed... '''vallowing in his grandfadder's footshtops!'''
* TorchesAndPitchforks: "A riot is an ugly thing. Und, I think that it's just about time that we had vun!!"
** Also an IronicEcho, since he'd earlier solemnly cautioned the townspeople about the dangers of a riot. ... Well, as solemnly as he could with that accent.
* ToTheBatNoun: "To the lumberyard!!"
* TrainStationGoodbye: Frederick has a hard time since his fiancee is so "delicate".
* {{Understatement}}: In a deleted scene, it was revealed that, [[OnOneCondition to be allowed to inherit]] his great-grandfather's estate, Frederick Frankenstein had to become a medical doctor of his own free will and earn some measure of esteem in his field. A relative then asked if Frederick did acquire a "measure of esteem" and was told he's the fifth most respected expert in his field.
* TheUnintelligible: Inspector Kemp borders on this, even with his fellow countrymen. (See Title Drop above.)
** The Monster also qualifies before Frederick gives him some of his intelligence. TheMusical uses this for effect for two numbers:
*** "Transylvania Mania" has Igor, Frederick and Inga trying to cover up The Monster's musical moaning with the song and later, the village joins in as well as a trombone.
*** "Puttin' On The Ritz" has The Monster do a scat-singing solo, showing he knows the tune even if he can't say the words.
* UnusualEuphemism: "Schwanzstucker", which is semi-accurate Yiddish; "schwanz" is indeed a word used to refer to the male member.
* VideoWill: Frederick Frankenstein's great-grandfather left a recorded message in an actual record.
** Complete with BrokenRecord, where, after the news of their not getting ''any'' inheritance has been relayed, the will gets stuck on the unfortunate phrase - "Up yours... Up yours... Up yours..."
* VileVillainSaccharineShow: While most of the movie's antagonists are played as silly, one policeman who tormented The Monster with his fear of fire is notably played very seriously. (It's implied that he does it ForTheEvulz.) This is jarring compared to the light-heartedness of the rest of the film.
* TheVonTropeFamily: Frederick's great-grandfather, Baron von Frankenstein.
* WalkThisWay
* WhamLine: Frankenstein was almost finished giving half of his mind to the monster, the rioters come in to kill him. It seems as though they were a minute too late....
--> [[spoiler: '''Monster:''']] PUT THAT MAN DOWN!!!!
* WhenTheClockStrikesTwelve: At the beginning and end of the movie.
** A very subtle gag - if you count them, the clock actually strikes ''thirteen''!
* WholePlotReference: The film is specifically a parody of ''Film/SonOfFrankenstein'' more than any other movie. The inspector with the wooden arm and the part where he talks with Frankenstein while playing darts are a direct lift.
* XRaySparks: The Monster's creation.
* YouJustHadToSayIt: A silent one:
--> '''Frederick:''' What a filthy job!
--> '''Eyegore:''' Could be worse.
--> '''Frederick:''' How?
--> '''Eyegore:''' Could be raining!
--> [[ThunderEqualsDownpour Lighting crashes and rain begins to pour.]] Frederick slowly turns to ''stare'' at Eyegore...
* YesNoAnswerInterpretation: Between the good doctor and Inspector Kemp:
-->'''Inspector Kemp:''' Then I may give the villagers your complete assurance that you have no interest whatsoever in continuing your grandfather's work?\\
'''Monster:''' (''in background'') MMMMMMM!\\
'''Inspector Kemp:''' May I take that for a yes?\\
'''Frederick:''' ...Mmm.
