Host: Lest you be turned off by the dim light and somber mien of this place, let me reassure that there is nobody here but us art lovers. I'm your tour guide in a place designed to show you the beauty of the unexpected. For example, some might see something attractive in a goldfish; we, on the other hand, find nothing lovelier than a piranha. Now this canvas here: dark hallway, door slightly ajar, a rather disquieting red room at the end of the hall -- and a very large cat. We suggest to you that while felines may look cute and cuddly and playfully mischievous, our suggestion is that you feed them a bit of milk and get rid of them. Because cats are and always have been Satan's familiars. Our painting title is She'll Be Company For You, and it's hung in this place we call the Night Gallery.
This episode is based on the short story "She'll Be Company for You" by Andrea Newman. This story was first published in the John Burke anthology More Tales of Unease (1969).
