    • (Opening Narration)
      Narrator: Portrait of a man who thinks and thereby gets things done. Mr. Jimbo Cobb might be called a prime mover, a talent which has to be seen to be believed. In just a moment, he'll show his friends and you how he keeps both feet on the ground and his head in the Twilight Zone.

    • Ace: Where are you going?
      Kitty: Home and to bed. Any objections?
      Ace: No, honey, I wouldn't blame you if you quit.
      Kitty: I can't. You owe me three months' salary.

    • (Closing Narration)
      Narrator: Some people possess talent, others are possessed by it. When that happens, the talent becomes a curse. Jimbo Cobb knew, right from the beginning. But before Ace Larsen learned that simple truth, he had to take a short trip through the Twilight Zone.
