  • Episode Description
  • The scientific library urgently contacts Dr. Morris and asks him to come to their building. It seems that all the words have vanished from all his old papers, and now seems to be spreading to all the other books in the same section. Not long after this the same thing starts happening at the Wiseman's house, the only connection between the two is that Dr. Morris has been to both of them. Dr. Morris and Michael have to find out what is causing this 'virus' and how to stop it, before it spreads across the whole world!moreless

    • Michael: It's cruel, you know. Dr. Theo: I'm sure you're right, but could you be more specific? Michael: The way you read in front of me, the paper, your reports. It's a little like barbecuing a steak in front of a guy who's starving, wouldn't you say? Dr. Theo: No. Michael: You bastard. You are the devil's incorrigible brother. Dr. Theo: Your flattery will get you nowhere.

    • Michael: Forgive me, but I'm confused. You just gave me a book. Now, in order to use this, in order to appreciate this, in order to enjoy this, doesn't that mean I'm going to have to read it? And aren't you the guy who said if you ever found out I was reading, you would make sure that I went blind or crazy or got warts on my hand? Dr. Theo: Well, I guess I changed my mind. I think I was wrong. Special Agent 1: This is scary.

    • The whole idea of reading books aloud in groups so that books still live into the collective memory, and more generally the whole idea of a world without books, has been treated in Ray Bradbury's book Fahrenheit 451.
