    • [Closing Narration]
      Alfred Hitchcock: In case you're wondering what happened next, Madge Griffin was found by a uranium prospector, so our story had a happy ending - for the prospector, that is. You see, uh, he didn't find Madge for two years. However, you'll be glad to find out that the money was in an excellent state of preservation. Perhaps I'd better reel our friend in. He'll catch cold if he stays up there too long. (Hitchcock pulls the rope down, but there's only a note) He's left a note. "I've just come to the end of my rope." That is enough mystery to last us until next week. Now we come to that part of the program for which you've all been waiting. Good night.

    • [Opening Narration
      Alfred Hitchcock: (holding a rope) Good evening television addicts. Thank you for your kind attention. Please don't jump to conclusions. We have not joined the stampede for western stories. Tonight's story does take place in the far west, but it is not about cowboys and their playmates. I feel that the cow has been very much overrated as a performer. By way of further contrast, my portion of tonight's program will have a definite eastern flavor. (puts rope on the floor) Now, for an amazing demonstration. (claps hands and rope rises on its own off the floor) Charles! (a man off-screen comes and climbs the rope until he's out of view) I can see this is especially useful when you have a place you want to get away from, but no place you want to go to. He doesn't seem to be coming down...perhaps we should begin our play. It is called "Enough Rope for Two." I hope you appreciate how skillfully we have woven the theme throughout our introduction.
