Quotes

Narrator: [opening narration] Nathan Edward Bledsoe, of the Bowery Bledsoes, - a man once, a spectre now. One of those myriad modern-day ghosts that haunt the reeking nights of the city in search of a flop, a handout, a glass of forgetfulness. Nate doesn't know it, but his search is about to end, because those shiny new shoes are going to carry him right into the capital - of The Twilight Zone.

Narrator: [closing narration] There's an old saying that goes, 'If the shoe fits, wear it.' But be careful. If you happen to find a pair of size nine black and gray loafers, made to order in the old country, be very careful. You might walk right into - The Twilight Zone.

Nathan 'Nate' Bledsoe: [looking at the carpet] How'd you get it clean so fast, Bernie?

Dagget: What?

Nathan 'Nate' Bledsoe: The rug. I understand blood's very hard to get out, isn't it?

Dagget: I don't know what you're talking about.

Nathan 'Nate' Bledsoe: Well, I'll tell you what I'll do, Bernie. I'll tell you what I'm talking about. I'm talking about a guy who had a pretty nice thing going for him; plenty of dough, plenty of action. Only he wasn't happy - because he had a partner. That meant he couldn't be number one, and being number one was very important to him. So he offered to buy the partner out, and when the partner refused to sell, - he killed him.

[looking at the carpet]

Nathan 'Nate' Bledsoe: Right there. You know, you'd never know. It was a slick job.
