    • (Opening Narration(
      Narrator: This is Roswell G. Flemington, two hundred and seventeen pounds of gristle, lung tissue, and sound decibels. He is, as you have perceived, a noisy man, one of a breed who substitutes volume for substance, sound for significance, and shouting to cover up the readily apparent phenomenon that he is nothing more than an overweight and aging perennial Sea Scout whose noise-making is in inverse ratio to his competence and his character. But soon our would-be admiral of the fleet will embark on another voyage. This one is an uncharted and twisting stream that heads for a distant port called... the Twilight Zone.

    • (Closing Narration)
      Narrator: When last heard from, Mr. Roswell G. Flemington was in a sanitarium pleading with the medical staff to make some noise. They, of course, believe the case to be a rather tragic aberration--a man's mind becoming unhinged. And for this they'll give him pills, therapy and rest. Little do they realize that all Mr. Flemington is suffering from is a case of poetic justice. Tonight's tale of sounds and silences from... the Twilight Zone.

  • Notes

    • Soon after this episode aired, a writer filed suit against Serling and company, claiming they stole his idea and script title. The suit was eventually settled, and the writer was paid $3500, but because litigation was ongoing at the time Twilight Zone was originally put into syndication, this episode was not included in the package and was unseen for many years.
