Roaches. Upson Pratt just called them bugs.

|Which actor plays Hank in the segment 'Father's Day'?||Creepshow

|How many stories are told in the entire movie?||Creepshow
6. There are six stories -- the five 'chapters' of the comic book, and the framing sequence featuring the comic book itself and the voodoo doll. I think 'Something To Tide You Over' is the best.
George A. Romero. The horror master director himself. King and Romero are good friends.
Stephen King. King always writes the weird stuff!
Using bug spray. Pratt hated cockroaches, and when there were just a few of them, he would spray them with bug spray. As more cockroaches appeared, Pratt furiously called an exterminator, but by then it was too late. Cockroaches came pouring into the apartment and they all attacked Pratt, killing him. The story ended with Pratt's lifeless body suddenly twitching, and millions of cockroaches came teeming out of his body from every possible place. A very fitting way for this bad man to die!
Germs. In addition to being very afraid of bugs, millionaire Upson Pratt was also afraid of germs. His apartment was supposed to be germ-proof, but that didn't stop him from always wearing rubber gloves and refusing to touch anything without a tissue handy. Pratt was a very malicious, evil man who delighted in tormenting people. If someone crossed him, he saw to it that they were fired or destroyed in some way. When he learned that he had caused the suicide of another man, Pratt was very happy, and even said so to the man's wife. Ouch!
A monster. The crate was located in a crawlspace under the stairs at the University, and it apparently came from an Arctic expedition from 1834. Inside, however, was a hideous hairy monster with sharp teeth and claws that brutally slaughtered people and ate them. This monster killed the janitor, a student, and Wilma before Henry locked it in its crate and dumped the crate into a deep quarry. Unfortunately, the story ended with the monster breaking free of the crate and surfacing.
|In "The Crate", Henry was married to an extremely obnoxious woman named Wilma. What did Wilma like to be called?||Do You Know "Creepshow"?
Billie. Henry's wife Wilma was a very loud, obnoxious, and crude woman whom nobody liked, including Henry himself. She could be heard several times throughout the story braying loudly, "Just call me Billie, everyone does!". Wilma never treated Henry well, and his resentment built up. When Henry heard about the murderous creature in the crate, he tricked Wilma into seeing it, and the creature attacked her and ate her, thus ridding Henry of his irritating wife forever. As the creature snacked on Wilma, Henry told her, "Just tell it to call you Billie!". This was a very funny line during a gruesome scene!
|What did Harry and Becky say repeatedly to Richard when they came for him in "Something to Tide You Over"?||Do You Know "Creepshow"?
"If you can hold your breath.". After Richard killed Becky and Harry, they came back for him from their watery ocean graves, as horrible seaweed-dripping zombies to get revenge. Richard couldn't get away from them, and they taunted him by saying, "If you can hold your breath". The last scene showed Richard buried in the sand the same way he buried Harry and Becky, and the tide was coming in. Richard was laughing and screaming insanely, saying, "I can hold my breath for a long time!".
Because Harry was having an affair with his wife.. Richard surprised Harry at his house one morning, with the knowledge that Harry had been having an affair with his wife Becky. Richard was a very cruel man and of course he didn't love his wife, but nobody took what was his, ever. Richard lured Harry to the beach under the pretense that he would see Becky, but the joke was on Harry when Richard forced Harry to be buried in the sand up to his neck. He was far enough down the beach for the tide to come in over his head. Before Richard left Harry, he revealed that he had done the same to Becky earlier and that she was already dead. As the tide came in, Harry died by drowning while he was stuck in sand.
He shot himself in the head.. Jordy soon discovered that the stuff from the meteor caused everything it touched to become covered with a green weed substance. Parts of Jordy's body were covered with the stuff, and eventually he had turned entirely into a walking, talking human green weed. Jordy finally took his gun and blew his head off, ending his own suffering. The story ended with the green stuff spreading outward to the rest of the world.
|In "The Lonesome Death of Jordy Verrill", how did Jordy end up splitting the meteor in two pieces?||Do You Know "Creepshow"?
He poured cold water on it.. Jordy Verrill, played by Stephen King himself, was a not-too-intelligent fellow who lived by himself in the middle of nowhere. One night, a meteor crashed near Jordy's house, and Jordy thought he could make a lot of money off of it. The thing was too hot to touch, so Jordy poured cold water over it, thus breaking it into two equal pieces. There was some sort of green ooze in the meteor, which Jordy dumped out. Later, the ooze began to spread, and soon nothing could stop it!
|In "Father's Day", what did Aunt Bedelia's father want so badly on Father's Day, that he came back for it from the grave?||Do You Know "Creepshow"?
His cake. Just before Bedelia killed him, her father was screaming, "Where's my cake? Bedelia! I want my cake!". When he came back from the dead, Bedelia was visiting his grave, and he promptly strangled her. He went back to the house, all the while saying, "Where's my cake? I want it. It's mine!". He proceeded to kill the rest of the family, and when he finally got his cake in a most gruesome fashion, he said, "It's Father's Day! And I've got my cake!".
An ashtray. On Father's Day, Aunt Bedelia's family was gossiping about how she had murdered her father on that same day many years before. Bedelia was taking care of her father after he had had a stroke, and when the man she loved died after a "hunting accident", everyone knew that her father had arranged it. Bedelia's father was a very cruel and mean-spirited man, and on that Father's Day, when he was ranting and raving at her, saying she was after his money and calling her all sorts of names, Bedelia snapped and bashed his head in with an ashtray.
