Nightmare Cafe (1992– )
Telephone recording: [when Fay tries to use the payphone in the cafe] We're sorry. The number you are calling from is not serviced by the telephone company.
[opening sequence for all but first episode]
Blackie: Touch that remote and you die!

Blackie: Now that I've got your attention, here's the deal. See those two people? That's Frank, and that's Fay. Strangers when they met, turns out they've got a lot in common. Both died on the same night, both ended up in the same body of water, and both took refuge in the same all-night cafe. Me, I run the place. Name's Blackie. Been here from the beginning. Now, I know I said Frank and Fay were dead, but the cafe needed a new cook and waitress, so it gave them a second chance at life. They do their job, they get to stick around and help unsuspecting customers turn their lives around. 'Course, anything can happen to those who wander in - their worst nightmares, or their forbidden dreams. Yeah, it all happens here in this little place we call the Nightmare Cafe.
