Siren, Tape Record Women! Preposterous

You are about to enter another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. A journey  into a wondrous land of imagination. 
Next stop, The Twilight Zone!
Season 1: Episode 36
"A World of His Own"
This little cute story is about Gregory West, & basically his little tape recorder. 
Playwright Gregory West was enjoying his afternoon with a very attractive blond, until Victoria West catches her husband Gregory playing house with another women (what a douche lol). 
Victoria confronts Gregory, and states that she knows his having an affair, but it seems that the woman she's just seen, has miraculously disappear.


Victoria is dumbfounded.
Gregory gives in and tells Victoria the woman (Mary) is not real, and he made her up. Through a simple tape recorder. And, all he needs to do is describer her.. and poof she appears.  
 Nonetheless, to make her go away, all he has to do is simply throw the tape into the fire.

Victoria believes Gregory is lying; And, is completely convinced that her husband is insane. 

Gregory shows Victoria, and she still does believe him....Until, Gregory tells her that she was created by him also, and shows Victoria the tape that was kept in he's safe. Victoria snatches the tape and throws it into the fire.

Victoria begins to faint 
"You don't mean you were telling the truth?! You were right!".....

Instantly Gregory tries to create Victoria once again ... but thought about it. Instead, he describes Mary.. and Mary reappears and mixes Gregory ( now her husband) a drink.

Rod Serling appears and says 
We hope you enjoyed tonight's romantic story on The Twilight Zone. At the same time, we want you to realize that it was, of course, purely fictional. In real life, such ridiculous nonsense could never—

""Rod, you shouldn't!" interrupts Gregory, who walks over to his safe and pulls out a tape marked "Rod Serling". "I mean, you shouldn't say such things as 'nonsense' and 'ridiculous'!" 
He continues as he throws the tape into the fire."Well, that's the way it goes," replies Serling, in a resigned tone as he fades away...

I thought this was a charming Twilight Zone episode. I wanted to share it with you all, because it's just so charming.
