Narrator: Submitted for your approval, one Max Phillips, a slightly-the-worse-for-wear maker of book, whose life has been as drab and undistinguished as a bundle of dirty clothes. And, though it's very late in his day, he has an errant wish that the rest of his life might be sent out to a laundry to come back shiny and clean, this to be a gift of love to a son named Pip. Mr. Max Phillips, Homo sapiens, who is soon to discover that man is not as wise as he thinks--said lesson to be learned in the Twilight Zone.
Max:: That’s the way of the world, Georgy. The rich get richer and the long shots lose so what’s to do?
Max Phillips: Pip is dying. My kid is dying. In a place called South Vietnam. There isn't supposed to be a war going on there, but my son is dying. It's to laugh. I swear it's to laugh.
Narrator: Very little comment here, save for this small aside: that the ties of flesh are deep and strong, that the capacity to love is a vital, rich and all-consuming function of the human animal, and that you can find nobility and sacrifice and love wherever you may seek it out; down the block, in the heart, or in the Twilight Zone.
