Hitchcock Says...

Introduction

Hitchcock is holding what appears to be a surfboard.

Good evening ladies and gentlemen, and fellow surfers. This evening's drama is only incidentally concerned with surfing. Actually it touches on many popular sports: drinking, revenge, kidnapping, homicide...

I first became attracted to surfing when I was told that it was possibly the only sport which involved no competition and where the participants did not throw or catch a ball, or run and jump. It seemed to be a perfect way to relax from the strain of oversleeping. I've become quite good at it really, and I'm eager to see how it works in the water. You see, we're still looking for a wave large enough to support me.

Meanwhile, here is a sponsor who is supporting this portion of the programme.

Ending

Hitchcock reveals that he is really holding an ironing board.

This is my final appearance tonight. However, we have some scenes of next week's story, which I'm anxious for you to see. As for surfing, I've just discovered why one sees so many of these about -- at the beach, on the highway, on top of automobiles, etc -- it's because they are so practical. Goodnight!
