* One of the opening scenes has Gomez playfully fencing with Tully Alford. Gomez is clearly toying with the attorney the whole time, while Alford has to push himself to the limit just to keep up with (or avoid getting skewered by) his borderline superhumanly skilled client. The topper is Gomez's effortless disarming of Tully, followed by him flicking Tully's ballpoint pen into the air, doing multiple backflips before landing into his chair and catching not only the errant pen, but another sword that dislodged itself from the ceiling.

* Never mind how in the Seven Hells a ''severed hand'' managed to get a job as an office courier: the truly phenomenal thing is '''he does it spectacularly'''.


* The best part of the scene comes at the end when Wednesday (still in her costume) is looking around, pleased at all the chaos, then notices Amanda Buckman, who at this point has been tied to a stake, had an apple shoved in her mouth, and is screaming for help. She calmly walks towards Amanda, stops, and pulls something from her headdress. Amanda's eyes go wide... and Wednesday lights the match. As the match burns, Wednesday for the first time lets loose with her true smile. [[PsychoticSmirk A smile worthy of her mother]]. Let's not forget the wood for the stake is soaked in ''gasoline''. And that the Addams Family [[{{Leitmotif}} theme song]] starts playing as Wednesday strikes the match. Hell, just Wednesday's slow walk towards the camera with her hand on her hip and that smirk on her face.
* And the BrickJoke about the family motto: "We gladly feast on those who would subdue us". The camp counselors tried to subdue two of the Addams family... And last we see them, they're being ''cooked alive''.
* Pugsley should be noted here - so he is: Pugsley is wearing a ''woollen turkey outfit''... and there is fire. He should be burning alive! Just the fact that he manages ''not'' to get burned alive is a CMOA in itself.
** Or it would be, if wool wasn't naturally fire-retardant...
*** Yes, but they're using gasoline, which can burn ''anything'' to cinders, even wool. Gasoline + fire = ''very'' big boom.
* Also the truly spectacular rant Gomez directs at the JerkAss police officers, doubling as an Addams family roll call.
