  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (4)

    • (Opening Narration)
      Narrator: Some push for what they need; some push for what they want. Some people, like Peter Jay Novins, just push. If they do it hard enough and long enough, something might just push back... from the Twilight Zone.

    • Peter Jay Novins: Yeah, it's me. So, how'd you enjoy your first day being in my skin?
      Alter Ego: Fine. How'd you enjoy your first day out of it?

    • Peter Jay Novins: Why are you doing this to me?!?
      Alter Ego: You got it all wrong, Novins. You did this to yourself.

    • (Closing Narration)
      Narrator: Peter Jay Novins, both victor and victim, of a brief struggle for custody of a man's soul. A man who lost himself... and found himself... on a lonely battlefield, somewhere in the Twilight Zone.

  • NOTES (4)

    • In its original run in its first two seasons, Twilight Zone ran for an hour with typically two half-hour segments. However, occasionally three shorter segments would run in a single show, and occasionally there would be one "full-length" episode. Individual segments are sequentially listed as individual "episodes" - check air date to see what other episode/segments they aired with.

    • Narrator Charles Aidman has a distinguished pedigree: he appeared in two episodes of the original Twilight Zone: "And When the Sky Was Opened" and "Little Girl Lost."

    • This episode is based on the short story "Shatterday" by Harlan Ellison. The story was first published in Gallery (September, 1975).

    • Episode Length: 24 minutes
