      • Host: Good evening. On behalf of the management, I'm authorized to tell you that your presence here gives them great pleasure. They'd all be here to greet you personally if not for prior commitments. Several are attending funerals, and would've been here if it weren't so difficult to get out of the box -- which should give you some idea as to the nature of our art. Now this painting, for example. Stairway and spectre, cobwebs and darkness. It's called Something in the Woodwork. It tells of what one might look for when purchasing a house, because that creak you hear in the dead of night is not always an errant rafter. Sometimes if you walk up those attic steps you'll find yourself face to face with the very thing that goes thump in the night. This, ladies and gentlemen, is the Night Gallery.

      • Molly: Oh, I don't need you. I've got friends of my own. Friends of mine own. Upstairs. In the attic. I've got a friend up there, Charlie. He lives behind the walls, in the woodwork. He's made of shadow. And at that, there's more to him than some ex-husbands I know.
