Gomez says "Tish" with a switch hit on the one inlane, and 'Tish says "Gomez" in the other. Yin and yang, baby. They're in love.

My wife when she first heard the call out "Gomez" thought she was saying "[email protected]$$" because it seemed to correspond to loosing a ball. We now have a saying in our house when you do something stupid we call each other "Gomez"

Well, at least my parents aren't the only ones with this problem. Mom's favorite pin is Addams, and the first one she bought. She hadn't played one in years, as we're in a pin desert, so when it arrived she played non-stop. I kept getting calls asking about things, and why the game was talking about fish and calling her a dumbass. I finally went over and realized it was the "Tish" and "Gomez" callouts they were talking about, bought them the Addams Family DVD, and made them watch it.

As a side comment, I'll mention that we have various kids ages 5-12 filtering in and out of the house for play dates etc.

I always make it a point to invite them all to play the game....and the vast majority have never seen the movies and also have never played pinball before. It's very fun to watch them...and amazing how kids can assimilate how to play within minutes. I haven't hed a kid yet not have to get pulled off it, lol.

Maybe you should have bought them a hearing aid instead!!

Exactly right. She says "[email protected]$$", he responds "B!tch"

More importantly, what (if anything) is Cousin It saying? I've been trying to figure that one out for 25 years. It had always sounded like "sorry uncle scooby" to me.

I always thought it was "Hi everybody!" but it might just be his usual gibberish.
