  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Host: (opening narration) William Shakespeare once wrote that the fault lies not in our stars but in ourselves. However, Gabe O'Brien, a man who just can't get a break, is about to learn the fault may actually lie somewhere else.

    • Gabe: Luke, if I'm going to do this there can't be any screw-ups.
      Luke: It's a piece of cake.
      Gabe: "A piece of cake." "Cookies and milk." Something tells me I'm going to end up on bread and water.

    • Jumpsuit Guy: You're gonna finish the robbery, you and Luke will get caught by the cops and go to jail and there's nothing you can do about it.
      Gabe: Why?
      Jumpsuit Guy: Because that's how it's been written.
      Gabe: Written? By who?
      Jumpsuit Guy: By the Writer.
      Gabe: Writer? What Writer?
      Jumpsuit Guy: The one who writes your life. Who else?

    • Gabe: Is, uh, God in there?
      Jumpsuit Guy: God? No. God works out of his home.

    • Host: (closing narration) Shakespeare observed that all the world's a stage, its men and women merely players. But Gabe O'Brien proved that sometimes you can grab the pen from the poet and write your own story. A lesson learned in The Twilight Zone.
