    • (Opening Narration) Narrator: It's been said that science fiction and fantasy are two different things: science fiction the improbable made possible; fantasy, the impossible made probable. What would you have if you put these two different things together? Well, you'd have an old man named Ben who knows a lot of tricks most people don't know and a little girl named Jenny who loves him, and a journey into the heart of the Twilight Zone.

    • Old Ben: Now that isn't respectful, Jenny. You must remember that Mrs. Gann is a very nervous person and she isn't wholly responsible for her behavior. Jenny: Then who is? Old Ben: Well, I'm not too sure, but in any case you try to forgive her.

    • Jenny: Ben? Old Ben: Yes? Jenny: How come those men are after you? Are you a criminal? Old Ben: In a way, yes. Jenny: What'd you do, rob a bank? Old Ben: No. Jenny: Kill somebody? Old Ben: No. Jenny: Then you must be a Communist.

    • Mrs. Gann: Who you talking to? Jenny: Myself. Mrs. Gann: Cut it out, you'll go crazy that way.

    • (Closing Narration) Narrator: Mrs. Gann will be in for a big surprise when she finds this under Jenny's pillow, because Mrs. Gann has more temper than imagination. She'll never dream that this is a picture of Old Ben as he really looks, and it will never occur to her that eventually her niece will grow up to be an honest-to-goodness queen, somewhere in the Twilight Zone.
