    • (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.
