    • (Opening Narration) Alfred Hitchcock: Good evening. And thank you for peeping in at me tonight. I will try to make it worth your while. Now if you'll look through the keyhole with your other eye…(holds up an eye chart) Excellent, thank you. Incidentally, those of you who think these letters don't spell anything couldn't be more incorrect. The last line was copied from an old insurance policy. Now that we are all in focus, I should like to make a few prefaratory remarks about tonight's librette. It is called "The Creeper" and is about a person who had a very peculiar way of striking up an acquaintance with women: he killed them. A distinctly anti-social tendency, for it never leads to any lasting friendship.

    • Janitor: Terrible thing, isn't it? Them poor women. Martha: They probably asked for it. Decent women don't get themselves murdered.

    • Ellen: There's something wrong with you, Ed, wrong! As a kid, even the games you made up were cruel. Ed: If you knew anything about child psychology you'd know that a lot of kids are basically cruel. Ellen: Yes, but they grow out of it. And you didn't.

    • (closing narration) Alfred Hitchcock: And so, once again the creeper commits the most heinous crime a woman can imagine: he takes the telephone away from her in the middle of a call. Obviously, this sadistic criminal will stop at nothing. For the record, the creeper was subsequently caught, and is now repairing locks in one of our leading penal institutions. If you liked our story, please write in. Perhaps we can give you a sequel to "The Creeper," called "The Toddler."
