  • Quotes

    • [Closing Narration]

  • Notes

    • The characters and events of this short story are similar to those of a sub-plot in Stephen King's novel "The Tommyknockers", as well as the miniseries adapted from that book. The difference is the man is not in a picture frame, he is in the TV.

    • This episode is based on the short story "Revelations of 'Becka Paulson" by Stephen King. This story was first published in Rolling Stone (July 19, 1984-August 2, 1984).

  • Allusions

    • Kind of an allusion to the famous science fiction story (later rewritten as a novel) "Flowers for Algernon" by Daniel Keyes. It is a tale in which a man of less than average intelligence is given an experimental treatment that makes him suddenly become very smart. But it turns out that the results are only temporary. The bullet in her brain affects her, sort of, as that treatment affected him.
