    • Control Voice: (closing narration) Two black crystalline rocks: unclassifiable. Objects on the border between the living and the nonliving. A reminder of the thin line that separates the animate from the inanimate. Something to ponder on. Something to stay the hand when it reaches out innocently for the whitened pebble, the veined stone, the dead unmoving rocks of our planet.

    • Control Voice: (opening narration) Rocks: silent, inanimate objects torn from the Earth's ancient crust. Yielding up to man over the long centuries all that is in know of the planet on which we live withholding from man forever their veiled secrets of the nature of matter and cosmic catastrophe, the secrets of other worlds in the vastness of the universe, of other forms of life, of strange organisms beyond the imagination of man.

  • Notes

    • At one point during the episode where Robert Culp's character hears a disturbance in the hall of his apartment, his wife checks it out and states that "It's Billy Fraker, he's been drinking again." It was a kind nod to Billy or William Fraker who happened to be the uncredited cameraman on this episode.
