Being Wild: “The only signal coming from his wet brain was the same gentle hum, with no data, no meaning. He was full of questions but powerless to answer them. He looked at the February sun, low in the southern sky, and took off for the north. In time he felt hungry, but found no signals leading him toward food. He was on his own. He wanted to see Ellen, and to hug her. But he could not message her. He dug into his ancient memory for her whereabouts and came up empty.”

"Any state, any entity, any ideology that fails to recognize the worth, the dignity, the rights of man, that state is obsolete…a case to be filed under ‘M’ for mankind in the Twilight Zone."
-closing monologue from The Obsolete Man (S02E29), 1961
