summary: OKAY! Enough with these existential "no one knows me" where have I been, insert me into some random setting shows! That's three in the last two tapes! I am getting very annoyed, although this one has probably been the strongest episode out of any of them.......blah.

"Once upon a time there was a man named Harirngton, a man named Forbes, a man named Gart. They used to exist but they don't any longer. Someone or something took them somewhere, at least they are no longer a part of the memory of man. And as to the X-20 supposed to be housed in this hanger, this tool does not exist. And if you have any questions concerning the aircraft and three men who flew her, speak softly at them, and only in The Twilight Zone.
