    • (Opening Narration) Alfred Hitchcock: (looking at audience through giant-sized magnifying glass) Good evening. I'm examining for fingerprints on the inside of your television screen. Very unusual. They're all thumbs. That's it! They must have been left by your television repairman. (looks through magnifying glass again) You know, I could use this to watch television. I have a twenty-seven-inch set with an eight-inch screen. It also has an adjustment for color. The adjustment consists of a palette of brush and the viewer simply fills in the numbered squares. It takes a very deft hand. Tonight's tale is provocatively captioned "Decoy." Do I peak you? I hope so. A program host should always be a good "peaker." In watching this program, I want you to pay particular attention to the three ballet ladies, who dance in the final scene, because one of these young ladies has since married a type of Englishman…and her fate is now quite well known.

    • (Closing Narration) Alfred Hitchcock: About that scene I mentioned. We ran overtime and had to cut it at the last minute. I'm sure you don't mind. It had nothing to do with the story, but it was a lot of fun making it. Good night.
