"None of this would have happened
If he only stayed home and watched television.

('Batman: The Brave And The Bold')

By his tone of voice as he departed that world, Batman seemed glad to know that at least one version of President Lincoln survived.

('Alfred Hitchcock Presents' - "Bull In A China Shop")

All mystery writers go to heaven.
('Alfred Hitchcock Presents' - "Whodunit")
And not even the angels know why......
