    I\'m quite surprised to find this episode is rated so poorly by fans of the programme. To me it is not only one of the few episodes which has genuine moments of terror, it also holds one\'s interest throughout its 22 minute duration, something which cannot be said for many of the later episodes of the series. While certainly not quite to the same standard of \"The Playground\" or \"Skeleton,\" it is equally as far in quality from such fare as \"The Dwarf,\" possibly the worst episode in the series. One of the few episodes I would show to a non-fan without any hesitation.moreless

    • John: Ours was a love affair. Print it out in capitals. Underline it. Find some italics. Add exclamation points! Put up the fireworks! Tear down the clouds! Anyway, it was the 4th of July every night. New Year's every dawn. it was a bobsled downhill and everything cold racing by in beauty and two warm people holding tight and yelling with joy. Laurel and Hardy we would be forever. Or almost forever, until everything went to hell.

    • John: Do you have an elevator in this place?
      Hotel Clerk: If there is, I ain't seen it.
