      • Alfred Hitchcock: (Sitting with a large hourglass in front of him) Good Evening. The hourglass is a wonderful invention. But I'm afraid it will never replace the sundial. Certainly not in my garden. This one doesn't even work. I sent it to a jeweler's to be cleaned and he removed all the sand. (He pulls out a smaller hourglass) Fortunately, the second hand still functions. Time is very important to the characters in tonight's story. One of them is doing it. For another, time seems to be running out. Time is also very important in television. We fill it. We must start on it. We must finish on it. And, appropriately enough, we occasionally kill it. I refer, of course, to my own fumbling efforts. Certainly not to the stellar entertainment which follows.

      • Alfred Hitchcock: Oh, well, back to the old rock pile. I do think Sam should be congratulated for making such a good try. Perhaps he'll have better luck next time. And returning to the subject of time, I believe we have just about exhausted that which was allotted to us. And so, until next time, when we shall return with another story, good night.
