  • Don Martin
  • Pete VanHorn
  • Man One & Two
  • Woman
  • Electricity's off.(669)
  • My power mower won't move, won't work at all. (669)
  • Conflict
  • Can't get a thing on the radio. (669)
  • Radio's gone dead! (669)
  • Suddenly a meteor strikes.
  • Phone won't work. (669)
  • Steve the power is off. I had the soup on the stove and the stove just stopped working. (668/669)
  • Rising Action
  • Then, Les Goodman's car started running.
  • How come his car just up and started like that? (673)
  • All by itself. He wasn't anywheres near it. It started all by itself. (673)
  • He got the car started somehow. He got his car started! (673)
  • Climax
  • No more talk, Steve. You're going to talk us into a grave! You'd let whatever's out there walk right over us, wouldn't yuh? Well, some of us won't! (678)
  • Charlie shoots Pete Van Horn.
  • You killed him, Charlie. You shot him dead! (679)
  • Falling Action
  • You were so quick to kill, Charlie, and you were so quick to tell us who we had to be careful of. Well maybe you had to kill. Maybe Peter there was trying to tell us something. (680)
  • No... no... It's nothing of the sort! I don't know why the lights are on. I swear I don't. Somebody's pulling a gag or something. (680)
  • Charlie feels remorseful about shooting Pete.
  • A gag? A gag? Charlie, there's a dead man on the sidewalk and you killed him! (680)
  • Resolution
  • Understand the procedure now? Just stop a few of their machines and radios and telephones and lawn mowers....throw them into darkness for a few hours, and then you just sit back and watch the pattern. (683)
  • The aliens talk about how the world is full of Maple streets.
  • And this pattern is always the same? (683)
