Whoever said Thanksgiving and Christmas were the only family holidays to celebrate this time of year? Halloween is also the perfect time to spend time with family — the Addams family, that is. The “creepy and kooky” Addams family knows just how to embrace all things “mysterious and spooky,” which is why you need some Addams Family quotes for captions to document all your spooktacular fun on the ‘Gram.

Whether you’re planning a movie night in with your roomies to watch both The Addams Family and Addams Family Values back-to-back or are putting together a Morticia and Gomez couples costume to wear to your Halloween party, having some Addams Family quotes on hand will make the posting process so much easier. While these movie quotes totally fit the vibe of Halloween, you can also use them for your everyday Instagram posts in October. After all, as Wednesday Addams points out that homicidal maniacs “look just like everybody else,” these Addams Family captions will blend in perfectly with whatever pic you’ve got.

It could be a selfie of your Wednesday-esque black OOTD, a snap of your Morticia-inspired makeup look, or a Cousin Itt-like good hair pic. Use a romantic Gomez line to caption a sweet selfie with your partner or an LOL-worthy quote from Uncle Fester for your most unhinged Halloween adventures with the squad. Whatever fun you have planned, these 30 Addams Family quotes will come in handy just like Thing.
