Episode Quotes
Host: The name of this place, should you have come in here accidentally out of the rain, is the Night Gallery. We deal in paint, pigment, light and shadow, realism, surrealism, impressionism, and ghost stories. Item number one over there, it could be a gentleman sitting in an electric chair. But it isn't. What it depicts is in a sense a method of execution that we humans reserve for other humans who happen to be dissimilar to us. You're about to look under that hood and meet first-hand one of the Different Ones. Tonight's first excursion into the realm of the unusual.

Paul Koch: And I wish I had some idea what this place was like.
Victor Koch: Is that what's bothering you? Well, if it were a desert, a frozen tundra, a pit where the sun never shines, it would be better than this.
