Dying Words: Naked City, "Burst of Passion", 20 January 1959.


"Nobody deserves to live. We all had out chance. We lost. We failed. Now we go nowhere. Just lower into the ground. Push them down and then they'll grow again clean, simple like the little animals."

Just about Andy Eisert's only lines in the episode, right after a meaningless killing spree and shortly before he grows again clean like the little animals. Naked City "Burst of Passion", 20 January 1959, written by Stirling Silliphant, directed by Stuart Rosenberg, with Woodrow Parfrey as Andy.

The show's closing narration isn't so rosy either:

"There are people and events no-one can explain. Bursts of passion which stagger the imagination and sicken the soul. No matter where you search, you will not find an answer. At least, none to comfort you. There are eight million stories in the Naked City. This has been one of them."
