Episode Quotes
Opening Narration: In this room, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, security personnel at the Defense Department's Cypress Hills Research Center keep constant watch on its scientists through OBIT, a mysterious electronic device whose very existence was carefully kept from the public at large. And so it would have remained, but for the facts you are about to witness.

Closing Narration: Agents of the Justice Department are rounding up the machines now. But these machines, these inventions of another planet, have been cunningly conceived to play on our most mortal weakness. In the last analysis, dear friends, whether OBIT lives up to its name or not will depend on you.

Dr. Clifford Scott: When I told them what I saw, they got very quiet, and looked at me with great, quiet eyes. Quiet can tell you so much.

Episode Goofs
In the final scene, the movements Byron Lomax makes do not match the movements of the monster on the O.B.I.T. screen.
