    • Alfred Hitchcock: (Opening narration) (standing next to a parking meter) Good evening. We have here one of the latest and most improved parking meters. The old-type merely indicated a violation and unless a policeman happened by, the driver could get off scott-free. This meter assures us that the violator will be punished. (the meter explodes and shows a sign swinging back and forth reading "Violation") Needless to say, even if the automobile is hauled away, it can easily be identified and so can the driver if he is within range. The advanatages are not all on the side of the law, however, for this device also will blow away any parking ticket left on your windshield. (looks off-camera And now I see our sponsor is parked in a one-minute zone, following which we shall have tonight's story.
      Alfred Hitchcock: (Closing narration) By the way, I wouldn't worry about that female hitchhiker if I were you. That was John Charles Wentworth, the gentleman who later authored a book, 'I Was a Girl for the FBI.' There was another announcement I was to make, but I can't remember it. Give me one minute and perhaps I can. (fade to commercial) I now remember the announcement I wanted to make. We shall return next week at this same time. Until then, good night.
