    • Alfred Hitchcock: (Playing pool wearing an eye patch.) Good evening. You know, this came as somewhat of a surprise to me. I was under the impression that all pool tables were kidney-shaped. I guess that's only true in Hollywood. Our story tonight will be in a somewhat different vein. It is a tale of mystery and intrigue on a transcontinental express. It is called... (He thinks about it.) The title seems to have slipped my mind. It's ah...(Someone comes on with a pool cue.) Man with pool cue: You've dropped your cue.(He leaves.) Alfred Hitchcock: (Opens the end of the pool cue, pulls out a piece of paper and reads it) The title of tonight's play is "Safe Conduct." Thank you very much.

    • Alfred Hitchcock: Now, I'm sorry you didn't watch. You'll never believe me. A three cushion shot. It caromed off the ceiling, floor and wall and into the side pocket.(Takes an 8 ball from his pocket.) Next week at this time we shall all return our mummers to offer you their usual 26 minutes of drama. And, of course, I shall be back to lay my customary one-minute egg. Good night.
