Episode Quotes
Host: Good evening, and welcome to a private showing of three paintings, displayed here for the first time. Each is a collector's item in its own way -- not because of any special artistic quality, but because each captures on a canvas, suspends in time and space, a frozen moment of a nightmare. Our initial offering: a small gothic item in blacks and grays. A piece of the past known as the family crypt. This one we call simply, The Cemetery. Offered to you now, six feet of earth and all that it contains. Ladies and gentlemen, this is the Night Gallery.
