  • "Wait a minute now. You keep your distance-all of you. So I got a car that starts up by itself-well, that's a freak thing, I admit. But does that make me some kind of criminal?" said Les
  • Steve
  • Sally
  • Woman
  • "Maybe you better tell us something. Nothing's working on this street. No lights, no power, no radio. Nothing except one car - yours!" said Don
  • Charlie
  • Don
  • Woman
  • "Go ahead, Steve. What kind of "radio set" you workin' on? I never seen it. Neither has anyone else. Who do you talk to on that radio set? And who talks to you?" (Charlie)
  • The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street: Theme: Blaming others and trying to find a scapegoat can lead to violence/Fear and suspicion are destructive forces.
  • Les Goodman
  • Mrs. Brand (Steve's Wife)
  • Sally
  • Tommy
  • Steve
  • " Who do I talk to? I talk to monsters from outer space. I talk to three-headed green men who fly over here in what look like meteors." (Steve said sarcastically.)
  • "Go ahead, Steve. What kind of "radio set" you workin' on? I never seen it. Neither has anyone else. Who do you talk to on that radio set? And who talks to you?" (Charlie)
  • Charlie
  • Don
  • "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 he'd found something and came back to tell us who there was amongst us we should watch out for-" (Les Goodman)
  • Les Goodman
  • Pete Van Horn

  • This scene illustrates the theme because Don is trying to accuse Les Goodman of being the monster just because his car started up on its own. Even though it is not shown in this scene, Don and Charlie kept accusing Les Goodman of being odd, weird, and the monster before any of the events even occurred. This is scene did not lead to any violence but it still shows how they kept trying to blame one another.
  • This scene also illustrates the theme because it shows how Charlie is trying to accuse Steve. He tried to accuse Steve just because he had a ham radio set that nobody knew about. This scene also did not contain violence, but it still supported the fact that the people of Maple Street kept trying to accuse each other.
  • The third and final scene supports the theme in many ways. Les Goodman is trying to accuse Charlie of being the monster after Charlie killed Pete Van Horn. Les was trying to accuse Charlie of being the monster so people would stop accusing him. Charlie had killed Pete Van Horn just because he thought it was a suspicious looking figure. Because of Charlie's suspicion, it lead to violence.
