  • "A couple times I'd come out on the porch and I'd see Mr.Goodman here in the wee hours of the morning standing out in front of his house looking up...looking as if he were waiting for something."The scene in which Mr.Goodman is accused of being weird and most likely to be the alien supports the theme that human are their own worst enemies.The woman had proof that Mr.Goodman was an odd person because who stands and stares up at the sky in the wee hours of the morning? It was important for the woman to not only find a scapegoat, but to get the blame off of her so she wouldn't be the one accused or have to go through violent consequences.
  • "Go ahead Steve. What kind of "radio set" you workin' on? I never seen it, neither has anyone else? Who you talk to on that thing? And who talks to you?". The scene in which Charlie is curious to see Steve's radio set supports the theme of "Human are their own worst enemies". For Charlie, it was highly important to have evidence to support his reasoning as of who was the alien to people would agree with him and they wouldn't ever think he was the alien. Of course, people were scared so they agreed quickly rather than carefully thought about the evidence given to them.
  • Charlie shot Pete Van Horn thinking that it was the monster. This scene supports the theme that "Human are their own worst enemies". Charlie was scared, and although he had blamed many people for being aliens, he shot Pete Van Horn thinking he was the monster causing all the problems. He was so chickened out that he was quick to kill the "monster". Which shows that humans will turn one each other when fear and doubt takes over.
