Opening Narration: Outward stretches the quest for truth. Stars without end. Timeless infinities. A billion, billion galaxies. Man's imagination reaches out and out, while betimes the farthest reaches of knowledge are found in the smallest places...
Closing Narration: There is a theory that Earth and sun and galaxy and all the known universes are only a dust mote on some policeman's uniform in some gigantic superworld. Couldn't we be under some supermicroscope, right now?
Jonathan Meredith: You don't think what we've got. Who we are looking at? At a planet, eight light years away. I mean that's so far that the finest telescopes we've had can't pick it out. We have to use second-hand informations we've had. We've had to make assumptions until now. But now, right here, in our laboratory, we can see what's going on up there. We can... we can watch, we can watch Evolution, at work.
