Opening Narration: God looked upon his world and called it good, but Man was not content. He looked for ways to make it better and built machines to do the work. But in vain we build the world, unless the builder also grows.
Closing Narration: Out of every disaster, a little progress is made. Man will build more robots, and learn how to make them better. And, given enough time, he may learn how to do the same for himself.
Judson Ellis: Frankenstein killed by his own monster! Sheriff, this is the space age!
