The film opens with yet another voiceover narration by Morgan Freeman, extolling the saintly virtues of a white person who deserves our reverence.
"You, you're the wisest man in the universe, we all know that. You played God twice for heavens sake, you can't be wiser."
"I'd never describe myself as a man of God. I'm an atheist. I'm not a man of God. But its fair to describe myself as a spiritual man. I do believe in spirituality. I just find it in a different place than a religious man might."
— Morgan Freeman, on himself.
Announcer: This Friday on TNT, the world premiere of Morgan Freeman in 'The Narrator.'
Morgan Freeman: Ever since I was a little boy, people have enjoyed the sound of my voice. And I figured you either get busy talkin' or you get busy dyin'. The work is really quite easy. Why even right now I'm just sitting in a chair, sipping some tea and reading from a script. The wall is covered in something that resembles egg crates except they're soft and spongy, like a twinkie...like a twinkie.
