Quotes

Roald Dahl: I have a maiden aunt in Norway who was actually rolled out of bed onto the floor three nights running, by a ghost. But then she lives in what was once a very old trysting place. About 400 years ago, they bricked up a naughty girl in the wall of that room: that sort of thing always produces a ghost. If your wife is extremely delicate, and you tickle her to death, that will produce a ghost, too - so you have to be careful. We have another one for you next week at the same time. Good night and ...

I agree with evilgrows comments about this episode. I first saw it when I was 10 years old and have had nightmares about it ever since. I saw it at the Museum of Television and Radio in New York, along with 7 other episodes, quite recently. It is just as I remembered it--its amazing what a ten year old mind can remember if its traumatic. Its just as creepy but not quite as scary as I remember it. The man is played by Murray Hamilton, who played Elaine Robinson's father in "The Graduate"---he's quite a familiar face. The wife is played by an almost unrecognizable Doris Roberts--- Marie on "Everybody Loves Raymond." The museum is a very interesting place to visit, and I highly recommend going there if one is in New York. Admissiion is $10, which can be applied towards a membership.
