      • [Closing Narration]
        Alfred Hitchcock: (still lying on the bed) There. I think that proves we can be as sunshiney as anyone. Clarence and the Widow Collins lived happily ever after, and in desperation, the trustees finally conferred to turn their park into a track for dog racing. It proved more popular than a cemetery - and rather profitable, too. One of the consolations of being ill is the gifts one receives (walks over to a casket flanking the bed). One of my dear friends sent me this (pats it. Solid oak. Silver handles, too. Apparently, the donor wishes to remain anonymous (picks up a placard sitting on top of the casket, which reads "Wear it in good health.") The card is unsigned. Very nice. But I better not overtax myself (lies back down on the bed). Until our next visiting hour...(picks up a sign that reads "DO NOT DISTURB".

      • Doctor: Congratulations, gentlemen. You've brought a dying man back from the grave.

      • Mr. Wheems: So you've come to cheer a sick man up, have you? Well, you've come to the wrong place. I can't stand do-gooders, sympathy, or long faces. All I ask is that you have a good time at the wake.

      • [Opening Narration]
        Alfred Hitchcock: (stretched out comfortably on a bed) Good evening. Since you're allowed to make yourselves comfortable during our show, I thought it only right that I be allowed to relax. After all, the rules of television seem way too far in favor of the viewer. You can relax in your home while I must stay here in this drafty studio. I'm not feeling a bit well, but the show must go on, whether you like it or not. Tonight's show is called "The Indestructible Mr. Wheems."
