10 Best Wednesday Addams Movie Quotes

by Netflix Wednesday brings the legendary Addams Family back to the screens, this time focusing on the fan-favorite girl in her own titular series. The show is slated for release this fall, just in time for the Halloween season, which will go along with the Addams’ gothic, spooky vibes.

While the series poses Wednesday as the main protagonist, it’s not the first adaptation to put her and her shenanigans at the forefront of its narratives, with earlier films like The Addams Family and Addams Family Values also giving viewers many memorable quotes from Wednesday.


“Don’t be a baby, I know what I’m doing.”

The Addams Family (1991)

Wednesday Addams has a real knack for invention and torture, especially when it comes to messing around with his brother, Pugsley. But while her brother proves much more hesitant about their spooky adventures, Wednesday is instead described as brave and fearless, always sure of herself.

That self-confidence and determination is particularly evident in this quote, while showing the manipulation and power she has over Pugsley and doing her bidding.

“It’s a tradition. One of us has to go.”

Addams Family Values ​​(1993)

While Wednesday Addams comes across as quite peculiar and wonderfully unique compared to others her age, she’s also still a child. And like any child, she becomes a little jealous and worried when her little brother, Pubert, enters the scene.

While she plays off her insecurity as cunning and determination, it is later revealed that Wednesday actually believed a new sibling meant either of her or Pugsley had to go. This quote therefore shows not only his audacity to impose himself, but also his naivety which comes intrinsically from being a child in new circumstances. Her sinister ways juxtaposed with her childhood innocence also make her one of the best characters in children’s films.

“So we can play a game…It’s called Is There a God?”

The Addams Family (1991)

While other children in the Addams Family universes appear to be uninformed or gullible (like the beginning of Addams Family Valueswhen the child talks to the wise Wednesday and Pugsley about storks and babies), Wednesday proves to be curious and experimental in nature.

She’s not afraid to push the boundaries of what kids “should” or “shouldn’t” discuss, choosing instead to prove every theory and explore everything she wants to know. This quote not only highlights her intelligent and analytical personality, but also perfectly captures her cheeky, social attitude that pushes the boundaries.

“They look like everyone else.”

The Addams Family (1991)

While her peers find Wednesday Addams odd, the fact is she’s the most non-discriminatory and wisest of them all. Not only does she treat everyone the same – without judging based on trivial things like looks or wealth – but she is also shown to be very aware of the serious issues around her and extremely intelligent.

When asked how her seemingly regular clothes represent her serial killer costume, she retorts that they look like everyone else, displaying not only her highly advanced perceptions of society, but also her wisdom about how the Appearance tells you absolutely nothing about the person inside. .

“Are they made from real Girl Scouts?”

The Addams Family (1991)

Wednesday is never shown to go out of his way to be disagreeable or make fun of others. Although she hauntingly causes chaos, in an Addams fashion, she is never shown to wish on random people or bully someone for no reason, unlike the Girl Scouts (and, in later, to members of the camp) who bother her with silly questions. meant as subtle insults to her and her family.

After she and Puglsey are harassed by the cocky Amanda, Wednesday decides to ask her a question as ridiculous as hers. With this quote – one of the best from the Addams Family – Wednesday not only embodies the fact that she will always stand up for herself when appropriate, but also that she can be just as witty and lively, no matter what. -what for a valid reason.


Addams Family Values ​​(1993)

When Morticia tells Amanda’s mom that Wednesday is at that special stage where she only has one thing on her mind, Amanda’s mom guesses the answer is boys. Wednesday immediately proves her completely wrong, casually stating that it’s a homicide.

This quote not only perfectly captures the haunting charm of the Addams Family, but also shows that Wednesday can never be bothered by societal expectations, especially those fueled by misogynistic (not to say heteronormative) norms, solidifying into as an independent, sure of herself and a girl who has always been awake.

“We’ll always have today. And Chippewa.”

Addams Family Values ​​(1993)

Even though Wednesday went to Camp Chippewa with the boys being the last thing on her mind, young Joel convinces her by accepting her for who she is and proving himself to be a brave and worthy companion (at least when he’s is about destroying the cruel camp and helping Wednesday escape).

This quote is one of Wednesday’s best because it displays a vulnerability and sweetness she doesn’t often show, proving that she is, deep down, just a young girl navigating life and relationships. . Not only does this humanize her, but with that rare glimpse, it also reminds audiences of her multitude and depth as a character.

“Don’t cut eyes on my crew unless you’re ready to dance.”

The Addams Family (2019)

While the recent animated reboot of The Addams Family may not have been as well-received as the live-action films of 1991 and 1993 (still higher than Addams Family Reunion), the film has its moments and places great emphasis on Wednesday, one of Addams’ most likable characters, throughout its plot.

This quote casts Wednesday in a somewhat different light through its slang, but still retains its intolerance for bullying and protective nature, capturing its essence perfectly. It shows how she can adapt to a new environment and her peers while staying true to herself, which the new Netflix series will hopefully explore further.

“I am not a monster. I am a force of nature.”

The Addams Family 2 (2021)

Wednesday is an iconic character for many reasons, but a big part of her appeal is how unapologetic she is, whether at Camp Chippewa or the beach in The Addams Family 2 (one of the best anime sequels of 2021).

Wednesday Addams knows her worth and is unabashedly herself no matter what others see her or want her to be. When called a “monster” at the beach, she returns this powerful quote, once again reaffirming her confidence and proving that she is a smart, confident and resourceful young woman (a force of nature with whom you have to reckon with in a relatively bland and weak world).

“I would pity him.”

Addams Family Values ​​(1993)

Despite her fondness for him, Wednesday doesn’t mind being attached by Joel, certainly not now at such a young age nor apparently later. When Joel asks her if she will get married or have children and she says no, he asks what she would do if the boy adored her and did what she wanted (to which she says she would be sorry from him).

This quote is arguably Wednesday’s best because it shows the empowerment she finds in herself, a true feminist, as someone who doesn’t need anyone else to feel fulfilled and loved. It also proves that she doesn’t want to be in a relationship that isn’t as equal as Gomez and Morticia’s that she grew up watching. It will be interesting to see if the new series sticks to that Wednesday ideology or not.
