People ask, "Where do you get your ideas?" Well, right here. All this is my Martian landscape, somewhere in this room is an African veldt, just beyond perhaps is a small Illinois town where I grew up. And I'm surrounded on every side by my magician's toyshop. I'll never starve here. I just look around, find what I need, and begin. I'm Ray Bradbury, and this is... The Ray Bradbury Theatre.
