Episode Quotes
Opening Narration: The greatness of evil lies in its awful accuracy. Without that deadly talent for being in the right place at the right time, evil must suffer defeat. For unlike its opposite, good, evil is allowed no human failings, no miscalculations. Evil must be perfect... or depend upon the imperfections of others.

Closing Narration: Without that deadly talent for being in the right place at the right time, evil must suffer defeat. And with each defeat, Doomsday is postponed... for at least one more day.

Mrs. Kry: (singing) Poo, poo-poo-poo, poo, poo, poo... Dee, dee-dee-dee, dee, dee, dee. Don't let your babe, wait no more, doomsday is kno-cking at-my-door.
