In a darkened hospital room, Janet Tyler has her face heavily bandaged. She asks the nurse what the weather is like outside, then wonders when they’ll remove the bandages. The nurse assures her they’ll remove them when they can and that she’s seen worse than what Janet looks like. Janet breaks down sobbing at how people have screamed at her when seeing her face...Read the full recap
Host: (opening narration) You have been introduced to Miss Janet Tyler, who lives in a very private world of darkness. A universe whose dimensions are the size, thickness and length of the bandages that cover her face. In a moment, we'll witness the removal of those bandages and we'll see what's under them. Keeping in mind, of course, that we're not to be surprised by what er see, because this isn't just a hospital and this patient, Janet Tyler, patient number 307, is not just a woman because this happens to be The Twilight Zone.
Host: (closing narration) Now the questions that come to mind: Where is this place, and when is it? What kind of world is this where ugliness is the norm and beauty, the deviation from that norm? You want an answer? The answer is it doesn't make any difference because the old saying happens to be true. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. In this year, or 100 years hence, on this planet or wherever there is intelligent life, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Lesson to be learned in The Twilight Zone.
