Mary: [mixing Gregory a martini] You really should be working, you know.
Gregory West: You're nagging me.
Mary: I'm only thinking of posterity.
Gregory West: [tenderly] Think of me, instead.
Mary: [smiles] Don't I always?
[They look at each other lovingly. Mary takes a sip from the glass]
Gregory West: Yes, you do. Dry enough?
Mary: We'll let the master decide.
[offers him the glass]
Gregory West: [takes sip] Perfect. As always.
Mary: [smiles] Are you describing yourself, Mr. West?
Gregory West: Let the mistress decide.
Mary: She's decided.

[Gregory interrupts Rod Sterling. He walks over to his safe and pulls out a tape marked Rod Serling]
Gregory West: I mean, you shouldn't say such things as "nonsense" and "ridiculous!"
[Gregory continues as he throws the tape into the fire]
Rod Serling: Well, that's the way it goes.
[in a resigned tone as he fades away]
Narrator: [Closing Narration] Leaving Mr. Gregory West, still shy, quiet, very happy - and apparently in complete control of the Twilight Zone.
