  • Quotes

    • [Opening Narration] Alfred Hitchcock: (dressed in fishing gear and holding a rod) Sh-h-h. (camera pans back and the audience can see that the fishing line is dangling in a bathtub. Hitchcock reels in the line and there is nothing on the hook.) I can't understand it. Of course! How stupid of me. I forgot to put in the water. I must do that at once if I want to catch anything today. (pretends to turn on a faucet) All of this is not as absurdly irrelevant as you might think. If you listen very closely, you will hear the words "bath tub" mentioned in tonight's script. Of course, other topics are mentioned which we could have discussed. For example, the story is about marriage. However, I don't feel that marriage should be discussed on television. It's too controversial. No question about it, we are much safer with a bath tub. And now, in a moment, is tonight's opera boufe - "The End of Indian Summer." Like all stories, it has a great deal of romance in it. But watch for that bath tub.
