    • Host: The concept of medical transplants is exciting indeed, but the story behind this painting takes the concept a step further. Or if you will, a step over, into a different kind of world. One in which a gentleman named Lachlan finds a hand that is not his own, and he finds it at the end of his wrist. Our painting, The Hand of Borgus Weems.

    • Nico: "Exoriare aliques nostris ex ossibus ultor"... that's Virgil! "Arise, my avenger, out of my bones." That's what you're prescribing for Mr. Lacland? A dose of Virgil?

    Notes (2)

    • In the syndicated standalone version aired, an extra scene is added at the end of a set of disembodied hands crawling along a red carpet.

    • This episode is based on the short story "The Other Hand" by George Langelaan. The story was first published in The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction (October 1961).
