As Jana and her father are arguing in the study, the camera cuts to a shot of Mrs. Loren sitting in an overstuffed chair watching them. At that moment a shadow passes across her body; it's either a crew member of a piece of equipment - possibly a camera - since there are only two other characters in the scene and neither of them are near Mrs. Loren.

This Twilight Zone episode finds brilliant inventor John Hoyt and wife Irene Tedrow living in a perfect domicile with a staff of servants to cater to their every whim. If he was actually paying these people it would take a Donald Trump to pay for this staff. But it costs them nothing as these people are as life like robots as you'll find anywhere.
Hoyt and Tedrow have a daughter played by Inger Stevens who is one beautiful woman as we well remember. But oddly enough Inger has no social life. Her universe is her parents and these robot servants. Thirsting for some human contact she makes some demands that are first granted, but later when she mentions some of her aspirations, she has to hear some very hard truths.
This was an episode a little too way out for me. Hoyt and Tedrow have to be some very strange people to allow this to go on.
