      • Mr. Cutter: And now the man says, "Shelley expressed my feelings better than I can ever hope to.."
        Louis: Who's this Shelley character?

      • [Closing Narration]
        Alfred Hitchcock: To summarize the next reel, Harry did as he threatened, and Marion lived happily ever after. She had a rich, full life. It was too bad that Harry wasn't there to share it with her, but of course, crime does not pay, murder will out, etc. etc. And now, good night, until we again bring you a saga of suspense and/or mystery. Good night.

      • [Opening Narration]
        [Our dear Alfred rather ominously holds "violin case"]
        Alfred Hitchcock: Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. A special word to those of you who have been arrested while speeding home to see this show. I can do nothing to bail you out. And I'm afraid the magistrate is only slightly in my debt. I shall, however, do everything I can to make you forget your troubles.
        [Alfred walks to a small table and sets down the "violin case"]
        Alfred Hitchcock: Tonight's narrative is about gangsters. And, uh, I thought I'd best test some of the props.
        [Alfred opens the "violin case" and removes a machine gun. He fires it to his left, but instead of gunfire sound, it sounds like piano keys each time it fires]
        Alfred Hitchcock: I wood like to play The Flight of the Bumblebee. But we must get on with the show.
