~ There is Nothing Wrong with Your Monitor (Please Stand By ... )

there is nothing wrong with your monitor

do not attempt to adjust the picture

we are controlling transmission

if we wish to make it louder,

we will bring up the volume

if we wish to make it softer,

we will tune it to a whisper

we will control the horizontal

we will control the vertical

we can roll the image, make it flutter

we can change the focus to a soft blur

or sharpen it to crystal clarity

for the next hour sit quietly and

we will control all that you see and hear

we repeat: there is nothing wrong with your monitor

you are about to participate in a great adventure

you are about to experience

the awe and mystery which reaches

from the inner mind

to the outer limits

please stand by

 

adapted from the opening narration

of episode 1, “the galaxy being,”

from the original television show, “the outer limits”

aired september 16, 1963
