      • (Opening Narration)
        Narrator: Each man measures his time; some with joy, some with fear. But Sam Forstmann measures his allotted time by a grandfather's clock, a unique mechanism whose pendulum swings between life and death, a very special clock that keeps a special kind of time--in the Twilight Zone.

      • (Closing Narration)
        Narrator: Clocks are made by men, God creates time. No man can prolong his allotted hours, he can only live them to the fullest--in this world or in the Twilight Zone.

      • The title is a quote from the old song "My Grandfather's Clock". The full verse reads:
        Ninety years without slumbering,
        Tick, tock, tick, tock,
        His life seconds numbering,
        Tick, tock, tick, tock,
        It stopped short
        Never to go again,
        When the old man died.
