Episode Quotes
(Opening Voiceover)
Narrator: Some push for what they need; some push for what they want. Some people, like Peter Jay Novins, just push. If they do it hard enough and long enough, something might just push back... from the Twilight Zone.

Peter Jay Novins: Yeah, it's me. So, how'd you enjoy your first day being in my skin?
Alter Ego: Fine. How'd you enjoy your first day out of it?

Peter Jay Novins: Why are you doing this to me?!?
Alter Ego: You got it all wrong, Novins. You did this to yourself.

(Closing Voiceover)
Narrator: Peter Jay Novins, both victor and victim, of a brief struggle for custody of a man's soul. A man who lost himself... and found himself... on a lonely battlefield, somewhere in the Twilight Zone.
