Gurney Slade leaves the studio during the making of a television sitcom, a walk allows time to think of new words and the thoughts of passers-by, and a policeman confronts him when he drops a newspaper on the floor.

Gurney wonders why he even needs words when he spots his dream girl, a spare comes in handy when a Love-at-First-Sight test goes wrong, and asking a husband about his choice of mate sees him abandon his family.

"Don't look like a fairy? You've been reading too much Enid Blyton. You've got to live with the times, you know. I mean, look at this suit... three-button. We've had Italian fairies over here."

Gurney wonders whether he'd be eaten if he had to live the life of an ant,

EPISODE 4

Originally broadcast: 12 November 1960
Directed by: Alan Tarrant
Written by: Sidney Green, Richard Hills, Anthony Newley
Gurney defends himself against charges of having no sense of humour, the prosecuting counsel shows a piece about a countersunk screw, and
a model from an advertising poster is asked about his facial expression.

"This bus hasn't moved in ten minutes. It's enough to make you wanna spit. I suppose that's the idea, so they can nick you for an extra five quid. Murder, rape - they don't charge you a penny, but if you dare spit, that's your lot!"

A group of children are told about a land where people can be their best, a wedding guest is left puzzled when a lady friend has a change of heart, and rubbing a tinker's pot forces Gurney to take a trip into his own mind.

"Hmm, well, it's not a dirty mind anyway."

Gurney finds that he's seen as nothing more than a performing machine,
