From Mike Wallace's interview with Rod Serling (September 1959):

"In 11 or 12 years of writing, I can lay claim to at least this: I have never written beneath myself. I have never written anything I didn't want my name attached to. ...But all of [my scripts] that have been on, I'll take my lick. They're mine and that's the way I want 'em."
