  • Quotes

    • Control Voice: (closing narration) And the light shineth in the darkness and the darkness comprehended it not. The sound of man probes the dimensionless range of space seeking an answer. But if it comes, will he hear? Will he listen? Will he comprehend?

    • Control Voice: (opening narration) In the not distant future, the sound of man will invade those unknown depths of space which as yet we cannot even imagine. In his own word there are no places left beyond the reach of his voice. His neighbor is no longer just next door, but anywhere at the end of a wire. And it all began when prehistoric man discovered the art of communication.

  • Notes

    • Interestingly, this episode stars Eddie Albert as a man who wants to live on a farm, and has a wife that doesn't quite share his enthusiasm. Sound familiar? (This bizzare tale, however, is no Green Acres.)
