Plot Summary[]

Gomez is playing Trainwreck, but feels he is in a rut. Morticia suggests taking a trip to someplace fun, like Tombstone or Death Valley, or inviting over Sam Harris, who has a new job as a government agent. Ila Klarpe and Miri Haan, two visiting dignitaries from an Iron Curtain country, want to see a "typical" American family. Harris is resistant to the idea, but Mr. Haan insists, so they get out the phone book and randomly select a name. They land on the Addams' listing. Mr. Harris tries to dissuade them from visiting the Addams, claiming that they're not normal. This further fuels the V.I.P.'s desire to visit the family. The V.I.P.'s assume the Addamses are the typical American family.

They visit the house and are intrigued to see Cleopatra, Morticia's carnivorous plant, Thing, another Trainwreck, Uncle Fester's ability to store electricity, Lurch, whom they assume is a robot, Tristan and Isolde devouring an entire breast of alligator in a second flat, and Pugsley's disintegrator gun. This makes Mr. Harris a nervous wreck, so Gomez has Lurch carry him to the Guest Room (though he actually takes him to the play room). Fester offers Mr. Harris his bed of nails to rest on, but after a short talk with Fester, Harris runs back to the VIPs. They conclude that Americans are highly advanced in science and technology. Mr. Klarpe makes a note of it, and they make a report back home.
