Episode Quotes
Opening Narration: Somewhere south of the Mongolian border and north of the Tropic of Cancer, in that part of the world we call the Orient, a slumbering giant has shaken itself to wakefulness. Passed over in most histories as a nation forgotten by time, its close-packed millions, in the short span of twenty years, have been stirred to a fury by one man: Li Chin-Sung. A benevolent despot in his homeland, Sung stands as an irresponsable threat to peace in the eyes of the rest of the world. William Lyons Selby-candidate for the Presidency of the United States; predicted by every poll, survey and primary to be a certain winner in the forthcomming election..."

Closing Narration: For Theodore Pearson, not even so monstrous a crime as the assassination of William Lyons Selby justifies an act of war, because there is no war as we know it-only annihilation. A great American has been killed in the service of his country. Now it is the job of those who continue to serve to carry on guarding our freedom with dignity and unrelenting vigilance

Dr. Bob Conner: Look! Did he just resemble you? Or was he like a mirror image?
