Girlfriendstein: When he serves plain tea and cocktail wieners, The Addams Family notices that Lurch is depressed. Wednesday and Pugsley search his bedroom and find out he has recently been dumped by his girlfriend. Uncle Fester flippantly suggests building him a new girlfriend, and the family insists he do so. Lurch shows no interest in the robot, though, so Wednesday writes to his ex-girlfriend to reunite with him. Meanwhile, Cousin Itt sees the robot on the spy satellite and they run off together.

Pugsley By The Numbers: Pugsley keeps destroying Wednesday's paintings so she uses her mother's "living" paints to create an improved Pugsley. Each creation she makes, a smarter Pugsley, a stronger Pugsley, and a female Puglsey, proves to be more annoying than the last. The real Pugsley, scares the alternative Pugsleys back onto the canvas, which is then eaten by a carnivorous plant. Wednesday admits that she already had the perfect brother after all.

Relatives Mentioned

Wednesday's headless doll is called Marie in this episode.
