    • (Opening Narration)
      Narrator: Jonathan West, ventriloquist, a master of voice manipulation. A man late of Ireland, with a talent for putting words into other people's mouths. In this case, the other person is a dummy, aptly named Caesar, a small splinter with large ideas, a wooden tyrant with a mind and a voice of his own, who is about to talk Jonathan West into the Twilight Zone.

    • (Closing Narration)
      Narrator: Little girl and a wooden doll, a lethal dummy in the shape of a man. But everybody knows dummies can't talk--unless, of course, they learn their vocabulary in the Twilight Zone.

  • Notes

    • This episode was, in reality, written by William Froug, based on an idea dreamed up by his secretary, Adele T. Strassfield. Froug agreed to give Adele sole credit, resulting in this being the sole episode written by a woman.
