    • Judson Ellis: (Speaking to Sheriff Barclay) Frankenstein killed by his own monster! Sheriff, this is the space age!

    • Control Voice: (closing narration) Out of every disaster a little progress is made. Man will build more robots and learn how to make them better. And, given enough time, he may learn how to do the same for himself.

    • Cutler: Well there's the end of your story. Everybody can sleep easy tonight. That terrible monster won't harm anybody ever again. He's as dead as old Doc Link's dream.
      Ellis: It's not the end of the story, its just the beginning.

    • Control Voice: (opening narration) God looked upon his world and called it good. But man was not content. He looked for ways to make it better and built machines to do the work. But in vain we build the world, unless the builder also grows.

    • This episode is based on the short story "I, Robot" by Eando Binder (Earl and Otto Binder). That story was part of a series of stories about the robot Adam Link. It was first published in Amazing Stories (Jan., 1939) and is collected in Adam Link - Robot (1965).

    • This episode was remade for an episode of the 1990's version of The Outer Limits also entitled "I, Robot." In that episode, Leonard Nimoy plays attorney Thurman Cutler while the director of the episode is Nimoy's son Adam. In the original episode, Leonard Nimoy plays Judson Ellis.
