- -- DVD description for the episode

Opening Segment Edit
"It's good to have you back you horror-hungry humans. You know by now who's here to feed your fear. It's me, the Crypt Keeper with another flesh-creeping scream story for your shivering pleasure. I'm calling this bite of bitter bile: 'Lover Come Hack to Me.' So plump up that coffin pillow and settle back your bones. We're going to take a little ride to honeymoon hell."
Closing Segment Edit
"Talk about family traditions. All you bouncing bachelors out there...a word of warning: before you take that matrimonial plunge check out the bride's background. Open her closet door and see if any family secrets fall out. Beware of skeletons, unless they're yours truly."
- The title is based on "Lover, Come Back to Me" by Sigmund Romberg with lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II and published in 1928.
