Control Voice: (opening narration) There is nothing wrong with your television set. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling transmission. If we wish to make it louder, we will bring up the volume. If we wish to make it softer, we will tune it to a whisper. We will control the horizontal. We will control the vertical. We can roll the image, make it flutter. We can change the focus to a soft blur or sharpen it to crystal clarity. For the next hour sit quietly and we will control all that you see and hear. We repeat: there is nothing wrong with your television set. You are about to participate in a great adventure. You are about to experience the awe and mystery which reaches from the inner mind to... The Outer Limits.
Allan Maxwell: But the secrets of the Universe don't mind. They reveal themselves to nobodies who care. Isaac Newton was a nobody, Michael Farragut was a bookbinder's apprentice.
Control Voice: (closing narration) The planet Earth is a speck of dust, remote and alone in the void. There are powers in the universe inscrutable and profound. Fear cannot save us. Rage cannot help us. We must see the stranger in a new light-the light of understanding. And to achieve this, we must begin to understand ourselves, and each other.
Control Voice: (sign-off narration) We now return control of your television set to you, until next week, at the same time when the Control Voice will take you to... The Outer Limits.
