  • QUOTES (2)

    • (Opening Narration)
      Narrator: Street scene: summer. The present. Man on a sidewalk named Lew Bookman, age sixtyish. Occupation: pitchman. Lew Bookman, a fixture of the summer, a rather minor component to a hot July, a nondescript, commonplace little man whose life is a treadmill built out of sidewalks. In just a moment, Lew Bookman will have to concern himself with survival, because as of three o'clock this hot July afternoon he'll be stalked by Mr. Death.

    • (Closing Narration)
      Narrator: Lewis J. Bookman, age sixtyish. Occupation: pitchman. Formerly a fixture of the summer, formerly a rather minor component to a hot July. But throughout his life, a man beloved by the children, and therefore a most important man. Couldn't happen, you say? Probably not in most places - but it did happen in the Twilight Zone.

  • NOTES (2)

    • The toy Robby The Robot featured in this episode is the Nomura (TN) 1957 Robby Mechanized Robot (aka the Kitahara #1). Someone in the prop department applied a sticker of a bloodshot human eye onto its dome to give it a distinctive, different look.

    • One of the toys being sold by Lew is of Robby The Robot. Robby "himself" was later featured in some Twilight Zone episodes.
