The New Addams Family
Other Neat Things
"Mon cher" leads to a burst of energy in Gomez allowing him to easily defeat cousin Vlad in a duel.(1.01) and "raison d'etre" gives Gomez enough energy to easily escape the Buckled Blazer of Doom (1.54)
M:"Share", G:"When you say 'Cher', it drives me wild!", M:"No, I think you mean 'Mon Cher'" (1.11).
M:"Merci", G:"'Tish, that's French! More! More!" M:"Crepes Susette, Comsi Comca, Oui Oui Monsieur", G:"Keep Going! Go on! Go on! ... Go on 'Tish. Say some more - Moulon Rouge - Vive La France" (1.12). M:"As do we darling". G:"Did you say we? Sometime's that's French you know" (1.19). "Enchanter" says Dr. LeBlanc to Morticia. Gomez replies, "It's French, and I don't care who says it", but after awhile: "Will you take it easy with the French? I'm feeling a little conflicted here" (1.19). Gomez can even say a French word himself and be affected: "This barbaric chapeau. Chapeau! That's French" (1.30), or "... rendevous. That's French. And I have nothing to kiss" (1.31). Sometimes, it doesn't have to be French: "'Tish, that's Spanish! Oh well, just as good." (1.24). M:"... status is back to quo", G:"'Tish. Is that French?" M:"No. But I won't tell if you won't." (1.35). Sometimes Gomez stretches it a bit: "I love when you pontificate."-M "'Tish. Was that French?"-G "No."-M (1.42)
[Aside: "sac du papier" (1.30) is a tribute to the late Dr. Joseph J. Miranne, Jr., Glenn Taranto's college professor who often used to say it.]
This whole issue of French may be an inherited thing. Long John Addams was affected the same way by Lady Penelope: "A bientot". "Penelope ... That's French" and smootchies up the arm. (1.63) Grandpapa Addams got carried away when he heard French from Morticia and he went on with: "'Tish that's French. Cara Mia - speak some more, soup de jour, la plume de ma tante, crepes suzette, Charles De Gaul." (1.21) Gomez's cousin Ramon Jones is affected by his wife's Italian in almost exactly the same way (1.64).
However, when Gomez loses his memory, even French has no effect and cannot revive him(1.30).
"Oh great spirits
We seek one of your number
Please find great Aunt Esther
And wake her from her slumber.
Esther Addams, if you're here
Make your presence crystal clear. (1.56)
