  • Quotes

    • (Opening Narration)
      Narrator: The carcass of a goat, a dead finger, a few bits of broken glass and stone, and Mr. Alan Richards, a modern man of a modern age, hating with all his heart something in which he cannot believe and preparing, although he doesn't know it, to take the longest walk of his life, right down to the center of the Twilight Zone.

    • Alan: Chad, tell me something. If you wanted to get hold of a dead goat on a hour's notice, where would you go?
      Chad:: To a psychiatrist.

    • Alan:: This is a lion's tooth. I gather I'm being protected from lions.
      Chad: In... New York City?
      Alan:: Yep.
      Chad: Well, you have to admit, it's doing a fine job.

    • (Closing Narration)
      Narrator: Some superstitions, kept alive by the long night of ignorance, have their own special power. You'll hear of it through a jungle grapevine in a remote corner of the Twilight Zone.
