The world is full of big talkers, and not even the Twilight Zone can escape them. In season 2 Rod Serling wrote “The Silence” about two rich men who square off in an expensive bet, just so one of the men can be freed from the incessant talking of the other. In season 3 the Zone served up “Hocus-Pocus and Frisby,” a story about a country bumpkin that can spin yarns unlike anyone else. He’s abducted by aliens and is able to escape using his harmonica, but the townsfolk believe his story is just another of his exaggerated tales.
